Great value. Breakfast wonderful. Cozy place not too far from all the bars and nightlife. Like a lot of Dublin, the place has character. Service was fine. Generally a busy place. Overall it was a pleasant experience and well located.

It's been quite a few years since I stayed at this hotel (5 to be exact!) the decor in the communal areas & rooms needs some addressing, has become a little shabby since ilast stayed here! The staff & location however are ideal, perfect for bus/train station, shops & bars, will definitely stay again & can recommend the town house!

We made our reservation at the beginning of September 2015 to stay at the Townhouse over Valentines day (February 2016). Unfortunately, the hotel has just informed us that they will not be honouring our booking (with us due to stay with them in 21 days) as they have been contracted out by a large corporate client. We have not been... More

Staff were friendly and very helpful, rooms were compact but comfortable. It's not the ritz but then it's not the ritz prices either. The full breakfast was fantastic value for money ....included free in our stay. The only draw back I could think of was we were a group of 20 females celebrating an 18th birthday and we were split...

The Townhouse is a nice budget Hotel with a good location in Dublin. The breakfast is above average and the internet connection is also good. The building is old and the rooms are small but they are clean and the staff is very friendly and willing to provide tourist information.

Apart from once, we've always stayed at The Townhouse as it's been ideal for what we wanted. A very warm welcome and certainly very convenient if you want to walk the city. Not having been since 2012, I was disappointed to see how neglected, even shabby, certain areas have become. The once plush carpets are threadbare in places and fixtures... More

The hotel has a good location, but the service is really poor, and I just slept for 3 hours, because there were many guest talking loud in the corridor. I complained in the reception but they didn't do anything, I am so disappointed with this hotel. So definitely I don't recommend this hotel.
