Came down from Belfast for a gig at The Aviva. The Portobello is about 40 mins stroll from the Aviva, probably 10 mins in a taxi. That suited us as we were of a mind to sample the local pit stops along the way! Free, secure parking was provided. The twin room was basic, clean and quiet. The shower was... More

Portobello B&B is a lovely Victorian terraced house close to the centre of Dublin. Eileen and Paul are great hosts and very helpful with information on the local area. Our room was clean and provided us with everything we needed for a comfortable stay, and the ensuite was great with nice towels. We had a great breakfast - what a... More

My husband and I spent two lovely days at the Portobello this past May, and highly recommend it. The location is perfect and central to downtown Dublin. But it's the owners, Eileen and Paul, who made our time in Dublin so special. Our room was wonderful, breakfast heaven, and our hosts a pure delight. This B&B is a true gem!!

Turned up to find had single bed. Had to go to ATM to get cash to pay. Impossible to wash at basin because of totally impractical shelf above it. Soaked the floor trying. Had to drive more to park. Clean and quiet though.

I just completed my third visit to Ireland and Dublin in April. I have stayed at the Portobello all three times. It is fantastic. The location is ideal. Just a few minutes walk to the center of things with excellent bus service right at the door step also. But that is not all that recommends this b & b. Paul... More

The Portobello is pretty conveniently within walking distance of downtown Dublin. The breakfasts were wonderful. Our room was very quite and cozy even when it was cool outside. There is limited free parking available. The innkeepers go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and informed.

Very comfortable, great welcome from the owners, food excellent, lots of good advice where to eat, visit, how to get there. Very good value for money. The owners definitely went the extra mile to make sure our stay was a good one.
