Just leaving for Cork. A wonderful stay. The proprietors are helpful and nice to chat with. Room was quite comfortable. Connell Street and Parnell are just a few blocks away. It's easy to spot - the entryway garden is a riot of color an gnomes.

Stayed for two nights end of August 2014. Greeted by Catherine and immediately made to feel most welcome. Location is 15 minute walk to city center and easily accessible by bus from the airport. Comfortable rooms, excellent breakfast, and most accommodating hosts. Will definitely be back on our next visit to Dublin. Thanks for all you did Catherine ....

A real "home away from home"! Catherine, the owner, ia a real Mother Hen. We felt welcome and taken care of. Brendan's (her husband) touch was very appreciated in the traditional irish breakfast. The room was clean and quiet. Great location from the city center. I would advise day trip tours with Paddywagon which is down the street on Lower... More

Considering this hotel was only 45 Euro a night and is near the centre of Dublin it is very good value. The host is great and breakfast was excellent. Whilst the room and external bathroom were clean there were a couple of minor irritations (1) there is a considerable slope in the floor of the room (2) the windows are... More

The hotel was avarage level hotel. Room was big and beds comfortable. There was "food smell" outside the room (lobby). The owner was really nice lady! The breakfast was irish: vegetables would be nice.

The owner is friendly and extremely helpful. Rooms are clean and comfortable. The traditional Irish breakfast is really good and plentiful, you will not leave hungry. Highly recommend this place to stay. Walking distance to sightseeing and shopping. Great location!

Upon arrival we were greeted by Cathrine who was very friendly and welcoming from the start. Cathrine was very helpful and provided us with a map and good information on local attractions and services, as well as ensuring that we could find our way back to the guesthouse(using the map). The double room (#3) was adequately sized, clean and comfortable... More

I stayed in this guest house in September 2013. Good points: Really friendly owners. Great location with a short walk to the centre of the city or use the bus stop just up the road. Easy access to/from the airport using either the AirLink or public bus network. Bad points: If I was to be really picky I would say... More
