Because there are some very cheap options on low cost airlines, I would suggest flying as a convenient alternative. Ryanair and Aer Lingus have various flights each day.
Those pages are well out of date. There is a direct bus from Dublin Airport every hour to Dun Laoghaire. It will work out much quicker than using more than one or two modes of transport. Cost: 8 euro single (Online) / 9 euro single (Pay Driver) 14 euro return (Online) / 15 euro return (Pay Driver)
After quite some searching, the best I can provide is a link on gumtree which shows classified ads for soccer in Dublin. Several of them are trying to form teams or need extra players, and I'm sure would be happy to have a visitor join in for a game!
Dun Laoghaire Harbour is a little to the South East of Dublin City Centre. The Airport is to the north. The Dublin Airport Website has a great section on getting to/from the airport which you should have a look at. I don't believe there's anything listed there that'll take you direct, but it might be worth double checking! The option that springs to mind ...
If you'd prefer to get a train, the cheapest option is generally a "Rail & Sail" ticket: http://www.stenaline.co.uk/ferry/rail-and-sail/ In fact, it's usually cheaper than paying for a car on the ferry (and that's excluding the cost of fuel to get from London to Holyhead). As well as being cheaper, you also have the peace of mind that if there are any ...
If your preferred option does not work out, you could always try Eurolines Coaches, which depart to many European Countries including Ireland from Victoria Coach Station, London. More info: http://www.eurolines.co.uk/destinations/ireland
Ferry bookings work in the same way as flight tickets these days, the actual fare depends on the date and time of the booking, and changes in time. To check the fare that is of interest you need to go to the ferry company website, e.g. Stena Line, enter the dates, press continue booking, enter the number of passengers and the size of the car, and then you ...
Temple Bar is generally considered the night life / pub / club centre of Dublin. There is a wide range of accommodation from hostels to quality hotels, and there are a vast number of pubs and clubs within crawling distance.
Rome2Rio gives you the alternatives. Rome2rio gives airfares, but not for the ferry though. You can get a detailed quote from Stena line
There's a pretty good page about Getting to & from Dun Laoghaire, and from that, it looks like the bus is a viable option: Dublin Airport is only 16 miles away. The airport is serviced by buses (41, 41a, 41b, 41c) which will take you into the city centre where you can transfer onto a bus to Dun Laoghaire. There is also a service called ...
You could also check Cityjet. They used to be an air france, but changed owners recently. Furthermore, do check all, because depending on dates you want to fly all might be the cheapest. Personally, I avoid Ryanair, just to avoid the hazzle, but if you are strictly abiding to their rules, and buy checked luggage ahead of time, they might be the cheapest
You're probably overthinking this, as the actual price will depend more on the route, the time, etc. than the airline. It's probably best to just check the price for your specific journey and book the cheapest tickets you can find. If you don't mind a longer travel, you could also use some search engine that will consider many airlines and indirect routes. ...
