Great place for small family or couple. Situated in friendly quiet neighbourhood. Not that far from centre(18 minutes by bus or 45 minutes on foot). Good breakfast, cosy atmosphere, kind of private bathroom facilities. Very homelike. Good eating options under 20 mins away on foot. Recommend this place to everyone!! Lori, hi and thank you for your hospitality.

I visited the marilyn mansion on September and was excited about the friendly welcome. Everyone was helpful and willing to pay attention to any matter. The rooms are simple but comfortable, the breakfast was a little poor but the rest of the accommodation and the embracing staff made things perfect. Totally recommended!

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.

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!
