Before booking Anchor House, I considered all kinds of options for staying in Dublin. We needed two rooms so cost was a concern. Based on TA reviews, we booked Anchor House and it was perfect for our family, with two grown kids, 17 and 20. As others have mentioned, it is more like a small hotel with breakfast instead of...

Jerry and Joan were fantastic! We were in the "new section". Our room was a good size, with a comfy bed and good pillows. Free wi-wifi was available. Breakfast was wonderful. The brown bread was fantastic! The dining room was large and there was always nice music playing. We also took advantage of the front sitting room one afternoon after... More

I know that I cannot expect too much when I pay 56€ for a single room. (If you book via their website and pay directly, breakfast is included in the rate) But I do expect hot water in the shower, at least warm water. Unfortunately, mine only produced cold water although I turned the thermostat to maximum heat and waited... More

There are hundreds of places to choose from all over Dublin, but I selected this for its location near O'Connel street, Temple Bar and more. Prices here are competitvely priced to others, but I wouldnt stay here again. I particularly didnt like the rough air dried towels provided to guests and the high charge to park our rental car.

I stayed here for 4 nights in September 2014. My room, a single, was small, but clean, bright, and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and as a single woman traveling alone, I felt very comfortable here. Some reviewers have expressed concerns with neighborhood, but I found it a relief to come back to this more "real" neighborhood... More

My first B&B experience, and I could not have picked more generous, accommodating and friendly hosts. They and staff treated our group like family. Do note this is a B&B and has a "house" feel. We chose Anchor because we were attending a sports event at Croke Park, and the B&B's and hostels on Gardiner are a short walk from... More

We stayed for 3 nights at the Anchor House during early August 2014 with our friends and really enjoyed ourselves. The Anchor house is located a few minutes walk from the tram, main train station and the city centre Temple bar area. The location is near some hostels but we experienced no issues with noise. The rooms are comfortable and... More

This B&B was a good choice for a Dublin stay. Just over the river on the north side, it is within easy walking distance of everything. The staff are welcoming and helpful and the rooms are nice and clean. The breakfast is okay. Parking can be added for an extra fee but considerable driving skill is required to get into... More

Stayed there overnight as the last leg of our trip, the staff were all very nice and helpful however, the accommodations were very basic and the rooms were like small hotel rooms instead of what you would typically want for a bed and breakfast. The bed was uncomfortable and I felt like I was staying in a college dorm room.... More
