Accommodation in Parnell is very reasonable in cost despite the area's chic appeal. There are good quality bed and breakfast establishments and a number of other accommodations. The area's closeness to the city centre makes many other types of accommodation of all types easily available in the vicinity.

Top Things to do and see in Parnell

Visit Parnell Rose Gardens, overlooking the stunning harbour and experience the beautiful colour and scents of hundreds of rose varieties.

In November, the Parnell Rose Festival offers craft stalls, strolling players, music and art exhibitions amongst the thousands of fragrant and colourful flowers.

Stroll around the dozens of craft shops, art galleries, boutiques and jewellers, stop for a bite to eat, and feel the Creative Quarter at first hand.
