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.

Great B&B located right in the heart of Dublin and just a stroll to all sights/night life . View from my room was stunning. Room was reasonable size, clean and warm. You have a good choice for your breakfast. I had excellent full Irish breakfast with a nice cuppa coffee served by very lovely girl. That's what I needed after... More

I can say a lot of good things about 'the Inn on the Liffey' ... such as a wonderful, nice and respectful staff, a very 'laid back' atmosphere, excellent breakfast in a cosy diner room served by a truly amiable and beautiful girl (she's a real sweetheart), great location, the inn has a very 'international' feeling .. you can speak...

I stayed here on two different occasions, I believe I got a better room on the second occasion. The location is perfect right smack bang in the middle of the city center. The rooms had everything you would need for a short stay. The view over the liffey was nice. The shower cubicle was extremely small in both rooms, and... More

I read many of the reviews of the inn and really wondered. I am not sure what standards some of the other reviewers used but this place is fine. The staff are great - very accommodating and helpful. The inn while older is fine. The rooms are fine, too. Very clean and comfortable, maybe not the size of a Hilton-type... More

Very nice and friendly staff. Location of the hotel is very good right in the center of the city. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Breakfast was quite rich. The only downside is there is no lift so you have to climb so many stairs with your suitcase.
