Just like previous online reviews, this is a great place to stay. Although it's a 30 minute bus ride outside of downtown, the bus routes are easy, inexpensive, and painless. The room was comfortable, albeit a bit musty, and came with a sitting area and comfortable bathroom. What made the experience worth it was our host Mary. She was friendly,... More

We stayed at the Almanii for three nights. When we arrived in Dublin after a long flight and an eight hour layover between the flights we were dead tired. Unfortunately I was also sick. Mary let us in early to our room and also offered us coffee and some breakfast. Her B and B is wonderful, tastefully decorated and very... More

Close to airport on a busy street intersection. We stayed our last night and departed before breakfast to catch and early flight. The owner set up a continental breakfast for us because of our early departure. She and the rest of her family were more than willing to go the extra step to make our stay both comfortable and convenient.... More

Almanii was a great place to stay. We wanted near to the airport and this is the place. The family is so friendly and nice. They gave us a great tip for a pub down the road from supper, and we couldn't have been more happy as it was just what we were looking for. The room and the breakfast... More

I must say for the first time traveling abroad I had the best experience. It was mainly because of Mary, my hostess at the B&B. She and her children were a shear delight. I sincerely hope I will be able to return one day. I have told all my friends about her B&B and how gracious she was to all... More

The 5 of us arrived on the doorstep after our long flight from California, dripping from our short walk from the bus stop and pulling our luggage behind us. We were welcomed in and offered a cup of hot tea... only to discover that I had made reservations for the wrong dates. Mary, the owner, was more than gracious in... More

I don't like writing part of this review. First the good: we loved the room - it was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Mary wasn't there when we arrived, but her husband was. He showed us around and was very pleasant and helpful. This is a great place with easy access to the airport, which is just what we needed... More

We arrived at this destination rather frazzled due to the location being difficult to work with when unfamiliar with the one way streets surrounding the property. We literally drove the wrong way onto a one way street and turned onto the sidewalk to enter the parking lot. The issue was not finding the location - we could see it -... More

This was our first night booked in Ireland and we were arriving after an all night flight from Canada. Mary gave us very clear directions which, as a first time driver in Ireland, I really appreciated. We arrived shortly after noon and Mary greeted us warmly with coffee and conversation. She allowed us to take our rooms early for a... More

The breakfast was delicious. Mary was extremely helpful in helping us to navigate around Dublin and also the rest of Ireland. We were in Ireland for 2 weeks and during our trip we stayed here on three different occasions. Mary helped us make special arrangements so that we could stay at various times. Mary was one of the first Irish... More
