We loved our stay at Applewood. Ann was a wonderful hostess, the breakfasts were fantastic, and things were set up so we could easily meet and chat with our fellow guests, both at breakfast and in the living room. There was easy public transportation to and from the airport and downtown, and Ann was patient in answering all our questions... More

As others have stated the location make this a very useful B&B. the room was adequate and breakfast was OK. I have come to expect tea if arriving at tea time but maybe I am too picky considering a modest priced B&B in Dublin. The owner was helpful with local knowledge and fair in reducing the rate when we had... More

My son and myself spent a few nights in Applewood last weekend. It's a lovely B&B. Our room was spacious and beautifully presented. Tv and WiFi in the room and a great shower unit in the bathroom! Breakfast both mornings was top class and Ann, the owner, is a very pleasant and friendly woman. She's great to give advice regarding... More

We stayed in this apple-themed B&B as a family of three and felt like at home. The family room is cosy and quiet. Both, the airport and the city centre can easily reached by bus (the bus stop is just outside the house), plus they have a parking space. Mrs.It is a good value for money!

Stayed here for two nights along with my sister who had stayed here previously. Very well situated in the bus route between Dublin city centre and the airport. Our host, Anne, was most welcoming and a mine of information. She even supplied us with a bus travel card (5 euro refundable deposit) which once topped up is a lot cheaper... More

Just back from our third stay with Ann at Applewood, and it was lovely as always. Ann is so knowledgeable about the city and the neighborhood; she has directed us to restaurants, pubs, shops, busses. The location is perfect for local, city center, and airport connections. Great breakfasts and clean, comfortable room. Hope we see her next year.

Got a last minute cancellation at this little gem of a B & B for Friday night last. I was taking my 10 yr old to a concert in Croke Park and didnt want to have to drive home again afterwards. This location was ideal, a short walk away from the venue with loads of restaurants, bars and fast food... More

Found Applewood Online by checking B and B in Drumcondra in Dublin as I wanted to be in Swords in Dublin the following morning which is only about a 10 minute drive. Glad I chose Applewood as it is only a short drive from Dublin City Centre and Ann the owner was very welcoming and helpful. Had a tasty Full... More

My husband and I recently stayed at this wonderful B&B. As first time visitors to Dublin we followed the reviews and this place kept popping up, so we booked for a 3 night stay. We were not disappointed either. On arrival Ann our host made us feel totally at ease straight away, she was very helpful, and as we were... More
