Recently stayed at the Almanii for a family celebration. Mary and everyone else in her family made us very welcome. Nothing was too much trouble even helping us with our weekends itinerary. Great location if you want to see other parts of the county other than Dublin. Barbara M, Cheshire.

Mary was so wonderful and so helpful. She helped us to figure out our delema with our travel arrangements. She was also very kind in setting breakfast items out for us, even though we had to leave very early in the morning. When we go back to Dublin we will be staying here again.

Thank you ladies for your lovely review, I hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip !

My husband and I stayed two nights at Almanii B&B. It is a very handy location to both the airport and Dublin centre as the bus route comes right past the front door. Noise isn't a problem as windows are double glazed. We drove to Almanii and had no trouble finding it as we used the GPS. Whitehall is a... More
