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 Hot water was intermittent; TV was outdated decades ago, and the remote control did not work; the room was on a noisy road and had single glazed windows, thus sleep was difficult.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

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

The host was very friendly and cooked us breakfast everyday but she didn't have any information for tourists, not even a map. The bathroom wasn't clean. The room was small but that was fine as it was a budget place.
