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

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.

There is nothing to recommend about Portland House. It is really over-priced for the poor quality accommodation that it offers.It is on a busy road in a dodgy area. The rooms are shabby, tired, dirty and ill-equipped with rickety furniture. The TV is so high up that we got a stiff neck from trying to watch it. It was stuck... More

I stayed with mairead in portland house recently. I was always met with a warm welcome and any request I had was dealt with straight away. The rooms were small but perfectly acceptable as they have everything you need. The beds and pillows were really comfy and the rooms were warm with constant hot water. I found the entire house...

I chose the B&B to be close to the Kilmainham Gaol so the location was perfect. The Bus Stop was located very close to the B&B so easy public transport for those requiring it. Nice entrance to the B&B. I received a very warm welcome by the owner. The room was fine, no complaints. Everything you want... comfortable and nicely... More

This is a little gem away from the hustle and bustle of Dublin City. It is such an easy walk or Luas ride from Hueston Station. The exterior of the building is so beautiful and the interior doesn't disappoint. The owner met us at the door and took us to our room. She obliged us in such a pleasant manner... More
