Great value hotel in a good location. Just a short walk to O'Connell street and 10 mins from temple bar. Beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were clean and modern. Staff were very helpful, great thing is they have car park spaces that can be used for only 10euro. Only issue we had was the adjoining cafe was not open... More

Friendly and helpful staff who were happy to go above and beyond their duties. Lovely clean room and bathroom, comfortable bed (slept like a log). Breakfast downstairs was also delicious! Loved the freshly squeeze orange juice.

Small hotel with excellent value for money. Only drawback is the restaurant next door where you will have your breakfast. The quality of the food is not so great. Location is excellent, there are some public bike pick up point nearby but you need to go to a location that accepts creditcards to get a subscription.

I stayed here when visting Dublin for one night with together my boyfriend. The location is perfect. All the sights we were interested in were within walkin distance, and the airport bus stops just around the corner. We tried the restaurant (same management) next door both for lunsh and breakfast. The breakfast was very good, but we were a bit... More

I stayed here with my partner for 3 nights. The hotel is clean and in a good central location just off O'Connell Street. Our room was on the top floor and there's no lift so it's a bit of a walk up the stairs - so perhaps if you are unable to manage ask for a lower floor room. Was... More

I stayed here for 2 nights for a long weekend in Dublin. On arrival, we were too early to check-in but were able to leave our bags with reception. The guy was really helpful, gave us information about buses to get to Glasnevin and gave us an approximate time that we would be able to check-in. On check-in, we found... More

Stayed in a twin room, a little compact but did the job....clean, good sized bathroom with very powerful shower. The guest house is on a main road, so not the quietest of locations, nothing like being in the central areas though and ear plugs are provided just in case you're a light sleeper. Rooms have a small number of toiletries,... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the kingfisher guesthouse in March 2015. We had a top floor double-bed room. The guesthouse doesn't have any lifts, but we didn't mind walking the 3 floors to our room. The room itself was an adequate size for us, but a little on the smaller side. The bed was very comfortable and we slept... More

Good location to see all the sights of Dublin. Staff were excellent, especially Anne Marie. The restaurant next door was very good for breakfast and evening meal. You must try the fish and chips! The room and bathroom were a good size and the shower was very good. Would definitely recommend the Kingfisher.

Good location, walking distance to Temple bar and Conolly station, just a few steps from great live music pubs, many shopping places next to it, few streets from city tour bus stop. Hotel is small, no lobby, tiny reception, no elevator, not too comfortable stairs. They have a restaurant where the breakfast is served too, tasty, big Irish breakfast. You... More
