You get what you pay for and as I hadn't paid much for a night' B&B here I hadn't expected much. The entrance is grand, but dated. We were lucky enough to have an outside room so there was a small window, heaven knows what the other rooms were like. Bathroom was big, but the shower intermittent and the bed,... More

We had unsuccessfully tried to get an AirBNB apartment for the three nights we were spending in Dublin, When that endeavor fell through, we searched on all the usual sites and it felt like we were rolling the dice on a hotel. When we booked this hotel, I really wasn't expecting much. Well, was I pleasantly surprised! The hotel is... More

I booked into this hotel for two nights. I soon came to realise that the walls in the place were paper thin. I could hear the voices of the people in the room beside me through the walls on both nights. On the second night, the snoring of the guy in the room next door was so loud it was... More

We booked a quadruple room: it was spacious and clean, but the beds were not so comfortable. The breakfast was a bit under expectations, but I can't say it was bad. Overall it's an "OK" hotel, but don't expect too much. Last: it's a bit far out of town and you need a car.

Stayed there for a concert in Kilmainham - it was so easy to get there via luas. Room was lovely and clean and as it was a Friday night it was a great value room. Even the taxi back from the city centre was reasonable enough. Food in the bar was lovely. The only thing was breakfast was a bit... More

I had booked a while in advance and had read some of the negative reviews but I needn't have worried. My room was large and the bed was very comfortable. Bathroom was very well appointed. I soon worked out how to release the safety catch on the window and that let in some much needed fresh air into the bedroom.... More

The room was very nice and spacious. There was free parking and the Wi-Fi worked well. The Tram was 5 minutes walk away and took about 25 minutes to the centre of Dunlin. We would reccommend to stay at this hotel.

This hotel is a real find. We stayed for one night and really enjoyed our stay. Our room was perfect. We had dinner in the bar and the food especially the house speciality "stone steak" was great. The bar had a great atmosphere made even better by the musical entertainment which is standard at weekends. The staff in the bar... More

Arrived very late after a ferry problem, and the night clerk on reception had only one non-smoking room available. It was inside the building, no window to the outside and very warm. I asked for another room, and I was given a smoking room. Despite the odour, I was very tired, and slept soundly for a (short) night's sleep. I... More
