Whether you stay in Marian or McElroy, these two adjoining Guest Houses are owned and managed by the same couple, and I was greeted cheerily by owner Catherine upon arrival. The good standard of service and helpfulness began before this, however...shortly after I made my online booking, I got a nice personal email asking for my approx. time of arrival... More

Only 2 words: NEVER MORE! Me and my boyfriend stayed here for one night, in a dirty and smelly double room at -1 floor. We payed 35 € per person in advance and all we got was a dirty small room with no wi-fi access and a dirty small bathroom (we didn't even got a shower... we were not so... More

We spent 4 nights here and they were all fantastic. Definitely recommended. Catherine was more helpful than we could've imagined and she was always very enjoyable to have conversation with. She provided us with lots of information about the city and gave us excellent directions. The location is great. Just north of the city center. Around a 15 minute walk,... More

I stayed at the McElroy with 4 friends for 2 nights in April 2013. We arrived at around 4pm and were welcomed in by Catherine who must be the nicest and friendliest person I have met in a very long time. We were shown to our two rooms (one double and one triple) which were both clean, comfortable and spacious.... More

My daughter and I stayed at McElroy's in March 2013 during a snow shower. We were warm and snug in our cozy surroundings. The common area was a great place to make a cup of tea or coffee at any time of day or night. Very clean and with a lot of character--- we recommend it for catching the hop... More

I stayed at McElroy Budget Accommodation for 3 nights in March and can highly recommend it to everybody looking for budget accommodation close to the city centre. I had a single room with en suite bathroom, both small and of simple standard but very clean and tidy and I had a good night's sleep. Superbe big Irish breakfast served every... More

The McElroy's Guesthouse is great value, close to the city centre and good local Pubs for a pint and a meal. The host, Catherine, is a bubbly, irrepressible person who is helpful and friendly. The rooms, though small, are clean, tidy and quiet. The breakfast is well presented and prepared. We'd advise anyone wanting an uncomplicated, friendly and hospitable place... More

McElroy Budget Accommodation is a great B&B value - the location is walking distance to O'Connell St, the proprietor (Catherine) is friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean, the breakfast is simple and hot. I would go there again, and send my friends.
