I stayed 2 nights with my family in Adare B&B and I'm really satisfied. The family bedroom we had was large and clean, in a very elegant house. Breakfast was good and abundant, I really appreciated the traditional Irish one. The area is very quiet and perfect for a good sleep. It's not exactly in the city centre, but it's... More

A lovely location for the B&B, a bus ride or 25 mins walk from the city centre, near a super park and close to restaurants etc, in a very upmarket part of Dublin. Accommodation was fine, well maintained, clean and with Victorian atmosphere. And competitively priced for Dublin. Hosts were friendly and helpful However, the breakfasts let it down. There... More

Beautiful character house within walking distance of the downtown. Very clean, quiet, comfortable, great meals, and very helpful, informative, accommodating hosts. Location was wonderful. Beautiful and quiet neighbourhood, walking distance to downtown for walkers, but also very handy to the bus system. We took the Air Coach to and from the airport and it can be accessed within a few... More

Patrick and Catherine were wonderfully accommodating innkeepers. Clean, spacious, comfortable room. Nice, quiet neighborhood but near restaurants and shops and a short walk to the RDS. Easy access from the airport by Aircoach and easy access to city center via public bus. Great value in Dublin; would definitely stay there again.

Catherine & her husband created a warm and heartful home for travelers. Easy access with the Aircoach from the Dublin Airport and other buslines in 5' min. walking distance as well as shopping opportunities (supermarket, pharmacy, postshop) around the corner. Very nice and comfortable beds and clean bathroom. Great breakfast, freshly prepared on individual demands.

Lovely place a couple of kilometers from the city centre. Nice quiet area, friendly hosts, easy to get around. Comfortable and clean, nice atmosphere. No fresh vegetables with breakfast but otherwise good food. Hardly any soundproofing, but during our stay all guests were pretty quiet, so this wasn't much of a problem. (With noisy guests it would be.) I heartily... More

Great breakfasts, knowledgeable, friendly hosts, and comfortable rooms in a very clean house all add up to a perfect stay in Dublin. I spent many nights here over a 4 month period whilst working in the city. The area is quiet, but within easy reach of the centre of town, either on foot or by bus and taxi. I'd recommend... More

Very much enjoyed our stay here, the location is perfect being a short walk to a good bus service and a shopping centre with fair restaurant choice. The street is very quiet and off street parking is available for guests. The bedroom was spacious but not large and the bathroom was of a good size, shower a touch cramped, but... More
