Good place to stay just off O'Connell Street. The room was nice and clean, only problem was it was up 4 flights of stairs. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast hearty and filling. We stayed for three nights. Comfy bed and good facilities. You can leave your luggage there to collect later which is brilliant if you have an evening... More

A wonderful place for a budget stay in Dublin. The bed was very comfortable and the design of the room was really nice. The staff was very helpful, was able to answer any question asked. Also, after we checked out it was possible to leave our luggage in the reception.

We've arrived at Clifden House an hour after booking a room online. There were no problems what so ever. Room (14) was clean and tidy with two double bed bedrooms (not expected) so we've decided to sleep in the second one with the bathroom. The bathroom was small with a shower but the floor is heated and the tiles were... More

Myself and my husband booked on Booking.com and stayed overnight at the Clifden. Upon arriving at the guest house we encountered a receptionist who had what we see as an attitude problem. Had every type of ID needed but somehow she was still unable to register who we were from the ID. We were then informed that our room would... More

This guesthouse is budget and perfect if all you want is a nice comfy bed for the night. The rooms are clean but basic. We had a four bed room which was very tight and only one bathroom which couldn't even fit a sink in it was that tiny. However for 3 nights it was fine. The staff really make... More
