At the airport, we were trying to make sure we were getting on the right bus. As soon as the airport staff referred to Mary by her first name, I felt we had made a great choice for our lodgings. And I was right! The B&B is located just between the airport and downtown Dublin in the town of Santry.... More

I stayed there with a friend for 2 nights on our way home. The B&B is perfectly located between the city and airport. Everything was spotless, the breakfast was great, Mary gave us a very warm welcome and was full of tips how to get around. We slept very well in our tastefully furnished room. I would definitely go there... More

Excellent B&B. Very 'homely' feel to it. The owner,Mary, was very welcoming and gave us sound advice regarding transport into the city. Very clean throughout. Breakfast was superb and set us up for a day's sightseeing. Highly recommended.

Almanii was immaculately clean, perfectly located, and very welcoming. Mary could not have been more helpful and kind. Knowing we were arriving early in the morning, she had agreed to allow us to leave our luggage at the house until check-in time. We arrived as breakfast was ending and she made us tea and coffee, and toast with homemade jams.... More

We chose it as it is very conveniently placed for the airport. Arriving at lunchtime we were able to leave luggage there and take the bus to the centre of Dublin. This takes about 20minutes and requires the exact fare in coins (2.55 euros). Landlady Mary was extremely helpful and our room very comfortable.

We stayed the first 2 nights of our Ireland trip at the Almanii B&B. Mary was very helpful and friendly, giving us tips and directions for traveling into Dublin. She also made great breakfasts, especially the mushrooms! Additionally, the beds were very comfortable, giving us great sleep to recover from jet lag. Highly recommend!
