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.

My review is almost a year overdue but I have been wanting to say how wonderful our stay was with Paul and Eileen. Excellent breakfast each morning, greats tips for places to eat and drink in the city, and the proximity to all major attractions was a quick walk. We had the room on the top floor towards the back... More

Paul and Eileen were great hosts. Comfortable and clean rooms, delicious breakfast and location was right. We wanted to stay close to city center, but far enough away to avoid noise and traffic and that is exactly what we got. Thanks Paul and Eileen from Mireia and Cristina from Barcelona (Spain)

Absolutely lovely B&B, very welcoming, clean, comfortable, would highly recommend to anyone. Large choice of breakfast we had full Irish both mornings, and was perfect, could also have cereals, fruit, toast or continental. Best nights sleep in ages, very comfortable bed. owners very friendly, and helpful, rooms are quiet, and warm with radiators and I think underfloor heating

this B and B is in a great location. Off the main routes of city center but an easy 15 minute walk to all. The room we had which was on the top floor was clean and comfy. B&b's aren't known for being super quiet so noise is always an issue but this was one of the more quiet especially... More

A really fantastic stay - I was down for business and arrived late which was no issue at all. There was parking around the back which was very useful as my meeting was later in the morning. The room was beautifully decorated. There was a very nice family feeling to the place and Eileen even supplied me with a plate... More

We really enjoyed our stay in this B&B: The B&B is conveniently located within easy access of the city centre and with a bus stop right outside the door (bus 16 even takes you all the way to Dublin Airport). The rooms are clean and airy and the beds are very comfy. We really enjoyed the breakfast with a nice... More

Though Eileen and Peter were welcoming hosts, it seemed perhaps they could use some help maintaining this accommodation. My parents were happy with their room and we all found breakfast to be satisfying but unfortunately our ground floor room had a very unpleasant odor which made sleep difficult. (We guessed perhaps a local cat had snuck in through the window... More
