My husband and I ended our Ireland trip at Adare. Our stay here was definitely average compared to the rest of our B&B experiences. Pros: The room we stayed in was amazing - huuuuge compared to some of the other B&Bs we stayed at. Great bathroom too. Location is nice. Quiet street out of the city a bit. About 15... More

Patrick and Catherine were excellent host - full of good information, but very professional. This home is well-designed as a B&B, so we had excellent privacy while still feeling the comforts of home, vs. a hotel. The food was great, and directions from the hosts were top-notch. This home is close to city centre, for walking or bus trips. Highly... More

Had a pleasant & enjoyable stay for the 2 nights, 10th & 11th/04/15 as a family. Very convenient location, nice & quiet, just 20 mins walk to the city, less than 10mins walk to Herbert play park so my sons were well pleased & entertained. Excellent service, clean & spotless. Friendly & Welcoming owners - Patrick and Catherine, will definitely... More

We stayed here in September 2014. Beautiful and large room. Quiet location (green, close to Herbert Park, also close to some embassies which makes it chic). Super breakfast. Lovely host and hostess, who were very nice and glad to help us! (Short bus ride or 20 min walk to the city centre.) Thank you, Patrick and Catherine Kindly regards, Lisa... More

On a sightseeing trip to Dublin we stayed at Adare House, where we had a wonderfull stay. The room was nice and clean, and the rest of the house is beautiful. It is located in a quiet neighborhood, but it is within walking distance to the city (St. Stephen's Green 15 min). There is also a frequent bus ride to... More

This was a return stay at Adare for me. As previously Patrick and Catherine's hospitality and warmth were fantastic . My room was perfect as before and the breakfasts plentiful and beautifully cooked. Adare is very well located and the buses run regularly and it is still a lovely area to walk around and feel safe. It is within walking... More

Stayed at Adare B&B as we were working at a show at the RDS. Both rooms were wonderfully spacious and warm and facilities were perfect. For access to the RDS and Aviva you could not find better and it is also on a bus route so very easy access to the city as well. Would not hesitate to recommend this... More

On a work trip to Dublin, myself and my co worker had the great fortune to book the Adare Bed and Breakfast. From the moment we arrived we were made feel so very welcome. The rooms are huge, the food fantastic and the location amazing. I cannot recommend it highly enough. We will be back, thank you.

This is a very comfortable B&B close to city centre - you can catch a bus just a block away from the B&B, there is an AIB ATM on the corner, a market, pharmacy and several restaurants. Peter and Catherine were good hosts, making sure we knew where everything was and making recommendations. The bedrooms were as pictured, the bathrooms... More

Very comfortable traditional B and B with very pleasant and helpful hosts. Breakfast was great and we even saw a fox sliding through the backyard! Located within easy walking distance of bus to downtown. Nice restaurants within 2-3 blocks and a beautiful park close by. Make sure you know which bus stop to get off though on the way back...
