We stayed at this hotel for one of the Ed Sheeran concerts and had a wonderful time. When we arrived at the hotel we were greeted with great warmth from Declan who didn't mind a bit of Dublin Meath banter!! I was so hungry after a long journey from Clare so we decided to eat in the restaurant. Our waitress... More

The breakfast was terrible. I had full Irish and it was over cooked and dried out.My boyfriend got poached eggs and they were hard boiled poached eggs. The toast wasn't toasted and in all a terrible breakfast.

The Hotel is very friendly, but the rooms are small in a Georgian style typical of Dublin. The Rooms are clean, but there is quite a bit of noise from the main streets below, the Hotel is on a busy crossroad, thus the noise. On the plus side the bar is great and very friendly often with live music playing.... More

This was our last port of call before heading back to the USA after a couple of weeks in Europe. It wasn't our first choice but the hotels I had previously stayed in close to the center were fully booked. This was about the same price and overall about the same quality and what you would expect from a 2... More

It's a b&b make no mistake, but it's clean and friendly while still having that 80's dated umm 'charm' feel about it (think flower patterned carpets). Shower was decent and breakfast was good. Road noise could be annoying if you're a light sleeper and you need the window open. Location is excellent 5min walk from the centre.

We've stayed here for 1 night before going on a paddywagon trip which leaves from nearby. A good point of this B&B is having a lift which in not taken for granted in other B&Bs. The room itself and bathroom were basic, with quite a few broken things, especially in the bathroom but nothing too major to detract from our... More

We dined here one evening after having trudged around Dublin for the better part of the day, and longed for a hearty meal with a beer. Sadly, only the beer part was fulfilled and only just so. We ordered their "famous Irish lamb stew" (the menu said that exactly) and the plain fish 'n' chips, thinking that these two are... More

We are sorry you did not enjoy your visit. Our fish of the day is fresh cod served in batter, we serve a frozen plaice at a lower price which is not as popular. It appears you ordered the plaice instead of the cod. For beer on draught, the majority are local beers and IPA's such as Smithicks, Blonde, Pale... More

This was our third visit to Dublin, and although every time was really great,this time, O'sheas took it to an even higher level. Looks wise, the hotel has the lovely dated decor, embraced in Ireland. To nit pick, there was some pealing paint, frayed bits of carpet, old grouting,mattress was not one of the best etc, but you do not... More

Fantastic service. Didn't stay but had breakfast and lunch here. Portions were immense for the price and service by mark and magic mike were above and beyond. Will be looking to stay on my return to Dublin.
