My mother and I had booked this place via Expedia. When we arrived we were told that something had gone wrong with the booking and there was no room for us. The staff was really friendly and helpful though and gave us one of their rental apartments. This had a bathroom, a kitchen and a bedroom, so in the end... More

My husband and I had a very nice time in Dublin. The mansion style is simple, yet comfortable. The innkeepers are very friendly and helpful making sure you find your way around town. Our room was on the ground floor with a double bed, a single bed that we used for storing, a TV, and including a small bathroom. Apart... More

Very nice place, the staff is very friendly and helpful, they suggested us tours to take and places to avoid. The rooms are big and clean. The breakfast is very good and there is plenty of choices and quantity.

Although the room and the welcoming was really nice, we have to say that the experience was not satisfactory beacuse of the bathromm. The place got two bathrooms to share with all the customers, and we run out of hot and COLD water in several ocassions. Futhermore, the showerhead got no strain at all, and having a shower was a...

The owners and staff where beautiful. The bathroom and the room were clean. Reminded me of my first apartment in Brooklyn with a fireplace and large windows. Other renters were from all walks of life and very pleasant. The manager was very knowledgeable of Ireland and a pleasure to meet. When I return to Ireland, I will be staying here!
