We stayed for 3 nights recently and were disappointed. I should start by saying that the guest house/hostel scene is not our ideal but hotels in Dublin seem a bit overpriced so in hopes of not breaking the budget we decided to give this a try. I guess the best you could say is that the location is good for... More

Never having been to Ireland before my husband & I stayed here for 3 nights & loved it. It's very clean & comfortable. The breakfast is delicious & Brendan & Catherine are wonderful hosts. It's a very short walk to downtown & the sights. I recommend the Marian Guest House as a great place to stay.

This bed and breadfast has a good location, at 15 minutes walking to the city centre. This is the best thing that I can say about this B&B. This place need to be remodeled, our room was inclining! and not a little, you could feel the inclination from the bed when you tried to sleep with a pillow of 2... More

b & b is a very modest but clean. The room was clean but it is really very old and worn and cheap. My big problem was the bathroom. I knew that is outside the room but I did not expect to be so mica.Si there was one thing that seemed odd to me: it was electric shower. Breakfast good,... More

Since this was our first visit to Ireland, we really had no idea of the layout of the city or country, so I was very careful in selecting our first two night's lodging. I did not want a fancy hotel, yet I did not want to stay in a hostel. Turns out I made a great decision when I decided... More
