To suit our budget, we found we had to stay a bit outside the city. This was an excellent location with very convenient bus service. Sandra was most helpful with planning via e-mail beforehand and Ken chipped in when we got there. Very comfortable accommodations, excellent food, and gracious hosts.

This is the second time that I stayed at Botanic Villa. Sandra and Ken are so friendly and helpful. Sandra is a great hostess. The home is very close to a bus stop and Sandra has the bus numbers printed on the business cards. She also let me know that the fares had increased since my last visit. I make... More

The staff here are incredibly friendly and helpful, and gave tips on where to visit in Dublin and even which bus to catch and what it would cost to get there! Rooms are clean and comfortable if a little small. Full Irish breakfast is included in the morning. Only (very minor) complaint would be that the wifi doesn't work upstairs,... More

Stayed at Botanic Villa for two nights with my mom. Great location to hop on bus into town centre, as well as a delicious pub called Hedigan's up the road. Would rate this B&B between 3.5/4. Sandra and Ken are willing to do whatever needed to help - pointing out bus options, lending me her iPad to book a flight... More

I stayed for 3 nights. April 30th-May 3rd. The owners, Sandra and Ken were very nice and gave me helpful tips navigating around since I was travelling solo and there was a transit strike. The B&B was a very easy walk to city center. An added bonus, it was close to a supermarket and other amnenities. I had a single... More

My parents were staying for few days for Easter and even though they had no English at all, that was no problem for the staff, who were always very thoughtful, welcoming and friendly. It is clean, beds are comfy, nice breakfast. They had great time, I totally recommend it!
