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

We stayed here a few nights before NYE. The location is fantastic and the price is fair. The breakfast is decent. You get to choose what you want from a card. However, breakfast ends at 10 am, which we thought were a bit early. The rooms are clean, but in need of maintenance. We stayed in a building at the... More

Many of the reviews that we had read before booking at the Glen were fairly average. Yes it certainly isn't the Ritz but it served its purpose well for the price we paid to stay here. The room was comfortable enough with a good sized double bed and bathroom with a fantastic pressure on the shower!! Yes there were little... More

Generally v good, breakfast good. Perfect location a few minutes from O connell street and right next to Airport Bus. Taps in the bathroom and heating are not great. The wall/ ceiling are a bit thin - so sometimes noise makes it hard to sleep. Bring earplugs.

I stayed at the Glen Guesthouse on a Friday night in Christmas party season so I understand that there is a lot of demand for accommodation in Dublin city centre, but I found that for the €99 I paid I should have gotten more. The location is central but the area is a bit rough. The building is a bit... More

Having booked a 'city break deal' one of the first things we looked at was the hotel that was allocated. Although we weren't expecting the ritz I'll freely admit when I read the reviews on here my heart sank. However we ploughed ahead determined to make the best of what seemed to be a 'bad lot'. But we were about... More

The balcony door was unsecure, the TV reception was poor and the Wifi was also down for most of the first night. Room was clean, bed good and food fine. When I requested a discount for leaving early before breakfast along with the points above, I was simply told "No". Would not recommend or stay here again.
