The B&B was clean, the staff were friendly, and breakfast was everything you'd expect from a B&B. What is really handy though is the location! For first timers to Dublin, this B&B is on the main drag between the center of town and the airport, so almost all buses pass by it, making it extremely well located!

My wife and I and our adult son spent two nights here and found the accommodations adequate and the location excellent for our visit to Dublin. Our triple room was clean, nothing fancy. However, the first night our upstairs neighbors were loud, coming and going well into the night. Thankfully, we were tired and managed to get some sleep in... More

The room was very nice. The location was great. Getting a cab was super easy - just stand outside and wave. Parking was odd - out front on the curb between the trees. Breakfast was good. The staff were great. All and all a lovely stay.

We chose this B & B based on the excellent reviews, and were disappointed. We would have paid double to stay somewhere with a larger room and updated bathroom. Very small, basically just enough room for 3 beds. Tiny bathroom also. The light never worked in bathroom, neither did TV. The location was OK. It's easy to catch a bus... More

Secure parking available at rear of property, which is on a bus route - not walking distance to town. Room was clean. Breakfast was good, but at 7.50 I probably wouldn't do it again. Staff (and Mary) were really good - friendly.

We used this as our first and last stop on our trip to Ireland and it was everything we needed. Clean and comfortable rooms and convenient to the airport (the bus stop is right outside the front door). Breakfast is not included with the room, but there are plenty of options close by for food. Running and bike trail is... More

I was attending a function in the Ivy House across the road so I stayed here on Saturday 31 May 2014 in Room 2 and it was a nightmare, we were woken up by the people staying in the room above us @ 7:30am from them walking around and the floorboards were constantly squeaking for 2 and a half hours,...

We stayed here the last three nights of our journey through Ireland. Our room was okay it was extremely warm in there and the heater in the bathroom was running. Unfortunately there was no way to turn it off. Breakfast is nice and the staff is helpful. I never got to meet the actual owners though which was a little... More
