Stayed here for 2 nights in October 2014, the greeting was brilliant, Alan is a lovely guy and really knows the meaning of customer service, and a mate stayed in a twin room which was ample, the lack of en-suite although worrying did not cause any issues or large queues for the bathroom. We never did get to try the... More

I spent one night with two friends and Alan was the friendliest person ever! He was really useful as a "guide" too. Room was really tidy and clean and breakfast treat was yummy! I definitely recommend this to everybody! Only downside is the internet connection which was not great (actually quite poor) in the room.

Stayed here for 2 nights with family, sharing a room. It was clean and Alan was very friendly. On the downside, no tv , toiletries or tea and coffee making facilities in room. There were however facilities for making tea and coffee downstairs and also a tv. Breakfast was good but only eggs for a cooked vegetarian breakfast. I had... More

Let me start with positives first. The place is very clean and the breakfast is nice. I believe it is a good venue for some people, especially if you are planning to be away a lot. I booked it while attending a conference for 4 days/ nights. While booking I spoke with Alan, who was fully aware of my needs.... More

The website led us to believe we would be getting a much nicer, larger room than we actually stayed in. The room was tiny, the blinds were tatty, we had to ask for the heat to be turned on (which was no problem). Room 6 is at the front of the house, so traffic & street lights were an issue.... More

The B&B is conveniently situated between the airport and the city center, with frequent bus connections to the city center. Everything is clean and confortable and breakfasts are tasty. Alan was really very helpful. I would definitively recommend it.

We stayed here for two nights. We arrived at 1pm on Saturday and we were politely told that our room was not ready. Alan directed us to a very average and expensive pub, by no means the nearest, in which he obviously has some kind of side-interest. Alan lays on the charm with a trowel but by the end of... More

This is a charming guest house with helpful hosts. Their website did not do them justice. Staying just between Dublin city center and airport was a good move, with a short bus ride that frequently stopped near the door. Breakfasts were ample and tasty. Everything was very clean and comfortable. Only complaint was hard pillows.
