The hotel is quite nice. Nothing special but the per night prices are fair and the rooms are clean. Within a 5 minute walk you got quite a lot of very good pubs or you can Uber or take the bus which stops next to the hotel to get into the city which takes about 10 to 15 minutes

I booked with them, to visit Ireland, to lay my mothers ashes to rest with her family. So, a stressful time for me anyway. I was then messed about by them completely and as there are 5 in my family, I ended up with only 4 beds and I was going to have to sleep in the car! They also... More

Wonderful place with charming staff to cater for our every need. The bar as you would expect was very well catered for and we all certainly enjoyed afew tipples and bar snacks. What a wonderful stay! Would recommend it.

They don't clean the bedroom. They don't change towel. It is expensive in relation with the service that they offer. The only positive thing is the breakfast that I think is good. Staff is not so good.

Was cheap clean and basic - all you need for a no thrills stay. Staff were international, very polite, discreet and helpful - very impressed. The house could maybe do with a light touch up paint here and there - but that sort of thing is of no concern to me - just to say if you are expecting opulence... More

Lovely little place in the south of Dublin. Bigger rooms than Paris or other European capitals. Very cosy and warm in the rooms. Hand towels constantly changed. Good access from the city center by buses 15 or 16 , but if you're planning on staying longer buy a leap card because it's about 2.50 a ticket one way. Good thing... More

I travel a lot and have stayed all over the world in places good and bad. My reviews are always as objective as I can make them. If a hotel owner has priced their offering at a price that reflects what they deliver then I will not rate them on a five star hotel. The price I paid for this... More

Had a really bad trip to Ireland itself as was really ill when arrived. So we stayed in the hotel for the week we was there! Sheets changed everyday, breakfast was... More

This bed and breakfast had absolutely everything I needed to make my vacation perfect. Clean and tidy, a place to store food, wifi, comfortable beds, sparkling bathrooms, knowledgeable, helpful and friendly staff, place to store my own food in the fridge, walking distance to the synagogue and a 15-minute bus ride to the centre of town. Being able to have... More

We stayed for a total of 5 nights. The bed was very comfortable and the room (if not a tad bit small) was very beautiful with a lovely view of the garden. Our room had a sink and cupboard. The owners were very helpful and would go out of there way to help you if needed. The breakfast was great.... More
