Lovely little guest house in a very good location. For the price paid (half of the price of a city centre hotel) I was very impressed with value for money. Very clean, small comfortable room. Breakfast was good plenty of choice and the staff were very good with emails before the arrival. Bus stop bang outside which is very handy... More

We stayed here for four nights and couldn't find a single fault. Perfect location, 10 minutes bus ride from the centre with a stop right outside the hotel. Breakfast was quality, staff friendly and rooms clean and tidy. Great power shower too!! Wouldn't think twice about using this as a base if we were to go again.

While traveling on business I took a weekend side trip to Dublin. ABC House was perfect - great location - on the bus line to really anywhere in Dublin from the airport to all of the tourist sites. My room was perfect for someone who would be in the go or wanted some quiet time to read. The owners took... More

A basic room, clean but the bed was too hard for me. Beware when you check out, they automatically charge for breakfast which is NOT included in your room. So, make sure to tell them if you didn't eat there. Don't book through Budgetplaces, they charged me 27 euros on top of the room cost. Then, it wasn't a budget... More

First off it was difficult finding the right door. No door numbers, misleading sign. 30 minutes wasted asking questions on the street.--On first sight our room looked clean and welcoming. Upon inspection, fitted sheets didn't fit the beds, stains on the mattresses and 1 comforter had a huge hole. The table tops were dirty and there was still someone else's... More

The ABC House is a good value, well located along major bus routes. Our room was clean and in good condition and breakfast was quite good. Check-in was anonymous but we met Karyme the next day and she was very kind indeed. The wifi was mediocre with the signal strength constantly fluctuating. If you are using it for wifi calling,...

We only stayed for one night in Dublin. Even if everything was prepared for our arrival (we became an email with the doors keycode and many useful advices for parking spots), it was a little bit awkward to stay in a house without getting in touch with its owners. The room was small, but decent, the walls were vere thin... More

Note that this Guest House is on the Upper Drumcondra Road just a few houses up from the Great Western 'Skylon' Hotel. The room was very clean with fresh n' crisp sheets and good wi-fi (breakfast is extra which suited us as we had to leave at 6.30am)..a good shower and spotless bathroom with two towels each made this the...
