My expectations for the Guesthouse were that it was an affordable, clean guesthouse located centrally to Dublin. This is exactly what was delivered. The rooms are small- but that is the case with a number of the older guesthouses in the area. The biggest adjustment for me was no air conditioning, so it was a bit hot for sleep, but... More

I read some of the reviews before we arrive in Dublin and was unsure what to expect. This was the end of our two weeks in Ireland. Yes it is on a busy street and YES there are stairs. The building is old and yes a little TLC is need here and there. But I never travel to stay in... More

We stayed here at the end of June and wanted a good base from which to explore Dublin. This was definitely it - really no more than a 10 or 15 minute walk to anything and everything there is to see, or at least to the bus stop that gets you there. The people working were friendly and helpful, and... More

A gem. Short walk to Tourist Info Center, and many other attractions. Surrounded by fabulous restaurants and pubs. Supermarket and shopping arcade on same block.

My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon trip. Not super fancy, but very convenient to attractions, tastefully decorated, very quiet. One of the favorite places we stayed on our trip. Delicious full Irish Breakfast.

We loved staying at Grafton. We normally wouldn't spend over 100 euros a night on a hotel, but it was worth it for the location alone. The room was clean, the beds were comfortable, and our bathroom had clearly been recently renovated. Our bedroom happened to be on the backside of the building, away from the street, so we had...

I stayed here for a week in 2006. It was deeply unpleasant experience. The rooms were stuffy and overly warm, the noise from the street was simply unbearable, I was in Dublin on a shoot and I didn't sleep for the full week. The staff had little or no English and weren't very pleasant. The building is old and the... More

Grafton House is located in a very old, interesting building a short walking distance from many major sights in the city. For this fact alone, it was a very good choice. It is quite old, and requires some major stair climbing(this is not surprising for a small hotel in Europe). the staff is friendly, the beds very comfortable and the... More

Most comfortable hotel beds ever! Rooms are a bit small, typical for Europe, but they are tastefully decorated and have all the necessary comforts. Bathrooms are newly renovated, ours had a waterfall shower our friends had a lovely bathtub. Great place to use as a home base for touring the city, very close to major sites. We were able to...

We just returned from our 12 day trip along the irish coast - we concluded our stay at the grafton guest house in Dublin. Great - our room was very quiet, altough the guesthouse is located in the very center of dublin. Ideal for daily trips, sightseeing, and shopping tours. Ok, the breakfast is improveable and the staff should be... More
