We loved the Grafton Guesthouse. Both the check-in hotel (a few doors down) and Grafton are walk-ups, so make sure your luggage isn't too heavy or you might have a struggle. The staff were friendly and helpful, and our room was beautiful - the bathroom looked as though it had been recently renovated, and even though we were facing the... More

Dublin is expensive but Grafton Guesthouse gives you a great central location, walking distance to most sights, at a price much lower than average for the area. Close to Trinity College, Temple Bar, etc., and close to many bus routes should you prefer not to walk, it is easy to get around Dublin even in the rain. The breakfast was... More

We had a 6 day stay at Grafton House in Dublin. There is 24 hour service at the reception desk of the nearby Kelly's hotel, but you are on your own at Grafton House. The location is convenient to main attractions and within walking distance of the train and bus stations. If you want the action of the pub scene,... More

The Grafton Guest House is now a satellite of the Kelly Hotel which provides all the central services so the guest house is just a collection of rooms, breakfast (good continental) is in a restaurant over the road. The management seem to be in the process of doing up the hotel but when we stayed the entrance hall and landing... More

We stayed in two different rooms here because of late reservation making on our part. Both rooms were adequate places to catch some shut eye. That's about all. This hotel does not offer much as far as aesthetic beauty. The carpet and wallpaper are a bit of eyesore and one room at the top had its own fan owing perhaps... More

Attached to the excellent Kellys Hotel it is only a matter of time before the owners get around to giving this place a much-needed sprucing up. Check in and out is done through Kellys Reception and it is very clear you've drawn the somewhat shorter straw the moment you walk through the Grafton Gueshouse door. That said; wi-fi and bathroom...

We stayed at the Grafton Guesthouse for three nights in June, 2014. Our room was on the 2nd floor (3rd for us Yanks) and no lift. My husband said he thought he was training for an Alfred Hitchcock movie as there were 39 steps. However, the staff and the room were both a pleasant surprise. The room was, well, roomy,... More

Not an impressive place. It says that it's undergoing renovations but I wonder if they just put the sign there as an excuse. That said, you're staying in a prime location in Dublin. Check in is inconvenient as you have to go upstairs at a neighboring hotel so it's good if you have a second person to stay on the... More

I stayed here with my sister and sister in law for one night in the triple room, breakfast was free the next morning. Bed was so comfy and very clean room. Provided with clean towels and shower gels, tea and a hairdryer. No problems what so ever only thing wrecked us was the stairs, and the shower door is slightly... More
