Try to find a place to stay near the city centre, so you can walk around and enjoy the nightlife. Otherwise you'll be on or near approach roads, in which case you might prefer to opt for something further afield that will be more bucolic. Alexandra Tce on O'Connell Ave (which runs south from O'Connell St) has several midrange B&Bs. Ennis Rd, leading northwest towards Shannon, also has a selection, although most are at least 1km from the centre.
