Very good value for money accomodation. The house and the rooms are very nice and clean, it has a free parking space and it is located at walking distance from the city center. The breakfast was good. Highly recommended

The Portobello B&B was quite a great find for us. The couple that run the place are extremely warm and friendly. We had a fine time talking with them during the excellent breakfast they put on. The rooms are very nice and comfortable. And, the Dublinbus stop is right outside the door. If you don't want the bus, central Dublin... More

We stayed at the Portobello B&B from May 30-June 5. The location is fantastic, a very pleasant walk to town or if you are not feeling up to it there are bus options right outside the door. The accommodations were wonderful, very clean and comfortable. There is a lovely back garden which we were encouraged to use as well. There... More

I stayed there for three nights last February. I loved it. But there are some drawbacks. The location suited my purpose (I was on a business trip to a nearby establishment) but it took me some time to find out how to get there by bus. Dublin transport is not easy to navigate once you get to the centre, they... More

N53°19.930' W6°16.388' Dublin's pricey tag is obvious and it got some pretty pricey pillows too. City centre midrange rooms will cost upwards of €120 and Temple Bar B&B's and hostels harvest in noisy and fleapit reviews. Read the terrible reviews for confirmation. If you're willing to endure a little bit of taxi trauma (taxi drivers from the airport are rip-off... More

Host very chatty which some people might like, too much for me as i was late for the chatting! Parking was just off street but given a disc for the evening. Slept... More

My wife and I stayed there for 3 nights. The owners/hosts are a lovely couple and made us feel welcome and comfortable. The rooms are good sized and most importantly the beds were comfortable ensuring a good night sleep. There is a direct bus to Dublin airport. City centre is 10 minutes stroll away and there is a Tesco express... More
