My mother and I were travelling for our off-season holiday this November and stayed here the first two nights of our vacation when many other aspects of our trip were going wrong in a domino-effect fashion. Because the guests checking out of the room we had reserved for that night had left very early in the morning, Mairead, the proprietor,... More

Stayed one night on a friend's recommendation. The room had twin beds and was so small that, in order for two people to enter, one had to go into the bathroom. The wash hand basin was so small that you could only wash one hand at a time. The skirting board had come away from the wall alongside one of... More

The house was warm and friendly, The rooms were clean and well appointed. The breakfast was excellent and the chat in the morning with the Lady of the house Mairead was always... More

I stayed two nights at this B&B in August. It is a very nice place, with a welcoming front entrance, lovely owner and clean basic rooms. The breakfast was superb and the owner obliged any requests. If you are traveling without a car and plan to see the city, just keep in mind that this is about a fifteen to... More

With a budget B&B I would normally say "You get what you pay for", but this was not as advertised. Hot water was intermittent; TV was outdated decades ago, and the remote control did not work; the room was on a noisy road and had single glazed windows, thus sleep was difficult. I could go on but I think you... More

I stayed in Portland House in July of 2014 during my trip throughout Ireland. I was unfortunately there only for one night before I traveled elsewhere in Dublin, but the house was so nice that I had wished I could stay many more nights! It was very clean, with plenty of room and a bathroom attached - it was like... More

Recently stayed at Portland House (10/7 to 12/7 2014). Fantastic value for money. Spotlessly clean, beautiful breakfast cooked fresh every day. Lovely warm welcome and very obliging owner. Location is superb being just around the corner from the Rialto tram stop - easy access to City Centre. Cannot recommend highly enough. We will certain stay at the Portland again. Do... More

Fantastic stay, Clean ,cosy and a brilliant breakfast . Everything about the place is just superb. The location is ideal and the lady is so kind and helpful. I was a little worried after booking when I happened to read some of the reviews on Tripadvisor but after staying for two nights, I can highly recommend it. I guess Tripadvisor... More
