Staying at the Inn on the Liffey ruined my Dublin experience. You can do better! Pluses: Staff fairly accommodating overall: allowed for an early arrival, stored some of my food overnight and my luggage upon arriving early on a second occasion (isn't this standard though?) Good location, central to Dublin Minuses: Rooms super small, stuffy, and quite old Long walk... More

Stayed here for two nights while visiting Dublin. Found the all staff very friendly and helpful, in fact the young French gentleman at check in offered assistance with my suitcase. There was a good choice of things for breakfast and the Irish Fry didn't disappoint. The room was small - it had a twin bed, side table, tv stand with... More

We arrived early at 9:00 am but unfortunately our room wasn't ready till 3:00, but we got to leave our luggage as we walked around Dublin. There is no elevator, so carrying luggage can be a challenge. The room was small but very clean, as was the bathroom. The shower is really small hardly room to turn around, but again... More

When we first walked into the building there was a strong bad smell. There is no elevator so we had to climb six flights of steps to the top (third) floor. The room was a tiny attic room but very charming with a view of the Liffey. The bathroom was old but clean. There was hardly room to turn around... More

The Inn on the Liffey is a budget hotel. Rooms are small but very clean and the water is hot. The place seemed very sterile, there was no warmth and the guys at reception were indifferent. There is no lift, but they do have free tea and coffee in the rooms. Breakfast was very good and included in the price.... More

I stayed at this guesthouse for a night on St Patricks day. The location is great, just outside of temple bar. The breakfast included was wonderful. The room had everything we needed and we had a great nights sleep. Best of all, the staff were great and were available for anything you needed. Very nice people and great hotel. Would... More

This is the second to review this guesthouse. First I will start with the positives, the location is great, very central. The room I received was a single room, the room was very small, with a single bed pushed up against the wall. The room appeared to be clean. I am glad only stayed here for one night as I... More

Been here three nights and the location is perfect. Views of the Liffey and less than 5 minutes walk from the heart of temple bar. All attractions within walking distance. The guesthouse needs a bit of renovation, given that interiors look old. No issues with noise and slept very well. Towels were changed daily and biscuits brought in daily as... More

booked the flat here. At 100 quid for three the flat was roomy and clean. The staff were friendly and courteous.Breakfast was nice. At 33 quid each for three people including a good breakfast and nice views this cannot be beat.
