My husband and I stayed for 3 nights at Hollybank B&B at the beginning of december 2014. We bought a 72-hour Dublin Visitor Leap card at the public transport counter in terminal 1 of the airport. This allows you to take all the busses, (wave the card in front of the validator in the front of the bus when getting... More

This is a great spot in Drumcondra (a neighborhood of Dublin just about 10 min by city bus to downtown). It is nice an much quieter than staying downtown. The bus could not be more simple. Buy a Leap-card (bus pass) two blocks away from the corner store. The busses stop right down the block and whisks you downtown and... More

I really enjoyed my two night stay at Hollybank. Siobhan makes wonderful coffee and was kind enough to provide blueberries at breakfast when I mentioned I was allergic to strawberries. My room was very comfortable; I had my own bathroom a few steps down the hall. The location was perfect for the National Botanic Gardens and other parks. Fagan’s Pub... More

Have stayed in the Hollybank House several times now, would never stay anywhere else. Siobhan and George are extremely helpful with any questions or concerns about Dublin or Ireland. The rooms are comfortable and in suite. The bus stops at corner for a short ride into Dublin city center. The Irish breakfast is unreal since Siobhan pulls out everything to... More

I spent two nights at Hollybank B&B during my trip to Ireland. Siobhan was extremely helpful and welcoming. She gave me directions and advice, and the Irish breakfast was very delicious. My room was perfect and comfortable. I opened my window in the evening and had a very restful sleep. The B&B is located near a bus stop that will... More

She was very attentive and professional and had time for a chat without been intrusive. The bed was so comfortable I slept soundly both nights. The room and bathroom were spotless and... More

We stayed two nights at Hollybank in May and thoroughly enjoyed it. Some good pubs within walking distance and an easy bus ride into the centre of Dublin. Siobhan looked after us well - terrific brekkies and comfy beds. The perfect base to explore Dublin.
