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.

The B&B is simple, clean and have a good price. The breakfast was delicious and the staff was very friendly. The only "bad" thing was the shower one night wasn't hot, and the shower is very small, but this is just a detail. I will be back for sure!

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.

I spent a quiet enjoyable week at Marilyn Mansion. The people that run it are very friendly and helpful getting oriented in Dublin. The breakfast was a nice and simple continental affair. Although I just usually have yoghurt and cereal with coffee in the morning. Only 200 meters down to the bus stop (have exact change in Dublin !) off... More
