We ended up at Marilyn's Mansion after realizing the hostels we had planned for were all booked up. We wanted to find something more homey once we realized we wouldn't be a 2 minute walk to the city centre and came across this gem. Such wonderful owners - waited up for us as we were arriving late after midnight, and... More

I came to stay in Dublin for a few days as i had an exam . I arrived two hours early in which staff were both kind and very welcoming. The room I was very clean and comfortable. Lovely breakfasts in the morning. Must stress that all the staff at the Marilyn Mansion are really great and accommodating. Will definitely... More

Clean, kindly owners, good breakfast, Quiet and very close to Rathmines and Rathgar, pubs, swan shopping centre, cinema atm's ecc. One of the best place to stay if you love the peace of a residential area.

Great welcome, easy to find, no disabled access that I could see, clean room and comfy bed, bad points - shared bedroom, no tea making facilities in room, had to go downstairs for both. I was away too early for breakfast but cereal was left out for me, with coffee and fruit.

Cozy rooms with nicely decorated communal area. Standard options available for breakfast. Staff is very friendly. (Thanks, Amessi!) Will definitely recommend to any friends visiting Dublin - great value for money.

Easily accessible from airport, although the bus ride takes almost 1,5h.. Room was really big, but a bit drafty. Bed was really really comfortable! Breakfast was simple but delicious, basically everything you need. Staff was really friendly!

Dirty. Scruffy. Room had no chair, no table, no bedside table – just a bed and an enormous wardrobe with two coat hangers. Carpet looked appalling. Sitting on the bed and looking around the incredibly dreary room, I felt as if I had ended up in some hostel for the homeless. Simply not worth saving a few euro to stay... More

The B&B is simple but in in very nice neighborhood and got everything one needs. The rooms are quite spacious and clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Our bathroom would have needed a shower curtain, but that is just a detail. Breakfast is simple but sufficient. We would go there any time again.
