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

We stayed for only two days but our stay was very enjoyable. Room was nice: clean, and cosy. Host was very friendly and helpful. Full Irish breakfast in the morning was very nice. Great location: just a few minutes walk from O'Connell street and various other destinations. Highly recommended

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
