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

The staff were lovely - particularly the evening/night staff - couldn't ask for nicer and more helpful chaps. This was a last minute booking for a quick couple of nights in Dublin and fitted perfectly for the purpose. But there were a couple of irritants. One being that you have to ring the main doorbell for entry everytime you go... More

This B&B is the only one that I stayed at on my three week vacation to Ireland that felt more like an old hotel than a B&B. The people working there were friendly, but that was the highlight of my stay. I found the room to be quite outdated and in dire need of renovation. In the bathroom there was... More

Spent three nights here and have booked in for a further two on our return to Dublin in four weeks. Just around the corner from O'Connell street and very central. Staff friendly and helpful, breakfast okay and room was spacious and clean

I was extremely impressed with this place, my cousin and I stayed here for two nights and the price and location were spot on. What really topped it off was though was the service: the manager (I presume she was the manager) was so lovely to talk to and so very helpful when we didn't know where to go. My... More

Elegant b and b with lovely public area's. Couldn't be more central for Dublin's attractions and right on the bus route from the airport. Clean ,comfortable room and a hearty breakfast. The staff are warm,friendly and hard working, always delivering service with a big smile. Offers excellent value for money.

I really loved staying here for two nights. The people were very friendly and went out of their way to find us rooms that were very reasonable compared to the guesthouses nearby. I was staying with my cousin and we needed two singles rooms, What we got were two lovely double rooms. It's very central and an easy walk to... More
