Nia and I stayed at the Glen for 3 days in April 2015. We were warmly welcomed by Goran who was tolerant and patient with us being 'typical tourists'. We stayed in room number 10 which was large, with a large window as well and a bathroom ensuite. The room was clean and extremely quiet! We enjoyed staying there. Nia... More

As a solo traveller heavily dependent on public transport, I was searching for the best location of b&b. Glen Guesthouse has a superb location: all the must-sees are within walking distance, Hop-On Hop-Off bus starts its route on O'Connell's street which is just 2 mins away. By the way, you can purchase 2-Day Hop-On Hop-Off bus tour tickets at the... More

We arrived at the Glen Guesthouse looking forward for a nice stay. The lady who welcomed us was not very interested in showing any kind of kindness. we then had to walk a long hallway to the building behind the main entrance which gave us an immediate headache. The smell of propaine was so strong it was barely standable. We... More

We arrived at this hotel late at night and were greeted by a member of staff. The room was basic but satisfactory as expected. The next day we woke up to NO water... Not even to flush the toilet! We phoned down to reception and they informed us that works down the road had cut off the supply and responded... More

We had booked a hotel in Dublin for two nights. When we arrived the lady -who was extremely rude. Said "that's yours" and pointed to the room exactly opposite the front desk. I asked her if there was another room available as it was our honeymoon and did not want to be woken up with all the people ringing the... More

Just what we needed for a cheap break in Dublin. It was a little run down and dated, but this was made up for by the great location - pubs and restaurants are within a short walking distance. The room was nice and clean, with a very nice bathroom. The bed was good enough for a good night's sleep. They... More

The Glen Guesthouse was lovely. The people were friendly & helpful. The breakfast was very nice. The shops, pubs & restaurants were only around the corner. The rooms were modern & clean & had everything that you needed. We really enjoyed our stay. We would visit again. Thank You for a comfortable stay.

Awful beds, central heating without the opportunity to adjust temperature, lousy breakfast. Quite old and shabby, but friendly staff, nice bathroom and good location. Would definitely not stay there one more time.

When staying in Dublin we find it is all about the location and of course price. This place gets the tick for both. We stayed here for nine nights, as we love Dublin. Cruising around the back streets looking at all the chrissie lights, the vibe this time of year is awesome. We found the staff to be very friendly,... More
