I am heading to DUB on August 16-18 (NRN-SNN-DUB; DUB-STN-NRN ). I am not quite sure which hotel / b&b to book. Any pointers from the DUB locals? The accomodation should be within a reasonable distance to the airport (walking distance if there's no shuttle bus available).

There are two hotels in Dublin Airport, Holiday Inn and Great Southern. They would be your best bet if you don't want to get a car. I will give you all the details later on the spotting locations. There are busses that run from Swords through the Airport to the City centre. There are also B&B's in the centre but can be pricey. Check out the hotels in the airport and see what they come up with, you might get some good deals as you are staying mid-week.

A Tourist information centre at arrivals in DUB will help find a room and close to the airport. The service is really for PAX who have missed connections so will be guaranteed a room close to the airport.
I often travel to Dublin on business and always need to stay over at short notice and always use the airport hotel reservation service, often I club together with other PAX sharing a TAXI to the chosen hotel.
