Grafton Guest house is approximately 5-10 minutes walk from Trinity College, where aircoach can drop you. It is located on street full of restaurants, bars and pubs. The area felt safe and rather quiet considering there's lot of pubs around. Reception is open 24/7 and during my stay I met there 2 very friendly and helpful ladies. The room was... More

I got a single room at a great price. I didn't plan to spend time at my hotel except to sleep, so this was perfect. It was like the servants room under the eaves but it had a bathroom so I didn't mind. The location was amazing. Right in the middle of Grafton, which is so much better than the... More

So, I'll start with the positive - the location is pretty great, and the Kelly Hotel (their sister? hotel) were very nice. But that's it. I HATE when a hotel doesn't let you know they are "redecorating"...the hammering began at 7 a.m. The "penthouse" was just upstairs, Room 18 was in pretty bad disrepair, and the cleaning was poor -...

We could not believe this place!! The description in a Ireland tour book made it sound wonderful. The only thing that was true was the location. It was right in the middle of the city center! BUT the rest was horrible. First off there was NO ELEVATOR!! We had two bags weighing 48 lbs each, plus two back packs!! Our... More

I stayed at Grafton Guesthouse twice this past month, and I enjoyed both stays, although the second time I was on the top floor, which was a bit of a slog with my suitcase (although one of the cleaning staff kindly offered to help me, which was very sweet.) Both rooms were clean and comfy, had interesting views (the back... More

Stayed in what is described as the penthouse. Top of the hotel with many steps housed a Double bedroom with 2 velux windows that cannot be reached so a pole is provided! Low ceiling concrete beams in the lounge area, mind your head!! A very steep spiral staircase to a room built into the attic with 2 single beds, again... More

Can't really complain because this hotel was the lowest priced in the center area - you get what you pay for. It was either here or an ensuite at a hostel given my budget, and I opted for this, but hostel might have been a better choice. The hotel room was falling apart, bathroom and toilet was really dirty looking... More

The location couldn't be better; close to all the main attractions, and with the best restaurants and pubs right around the corner. The rooms look a bit old, but everything is clean. The included breakfast is well facilitated and in a nice restaurant. Book this guesthouse when you want to stay in the best part of Dublin for a reasonable... More
