We only stayed one night in this most comfortable and enjoyable B&B and now wish we had spent more time here and visiting Dublin. Brendan was a most hospitable host, providing tips for our visit to Dublin, commuting on the LUAS and for eating locally. The room was spotless, the breakfast very nice, the extras welcome and the beds and... More

We just spent 15 nights here visiting from the US (our 2nd visit) waiting for some construction to be finished on our son's house and waiting for their new baby. Brendan and Paula were so welcoming and understanding of our day to day situation and made us feel relaxed and ok about not knowing when we might be leaving. They... More

My wife and I spent 4 nights at Quince Cottage in early Dec 2014. Brendan gave us a very warm welcome and lots of helpful information about local eateries and places to visit. The property is comfortable, warm and inviting. The cooked breakfasts were absolutely delicious, definitely one of the highlights of our stay, and the service was friendly and... More

I am writing this review a little late as we stayed at Quince Cottage in February of this year. Having found this B&B through Trip Advisor I called and spoke to Brendan, the owner, to book our weekend stay and to advise that both my wife and I were vegan. After a very friendly and informative conversation Brendan told us... More

I was looking forward to my stay at Quince Cottage after reading the online reviews. I was in Dublin for hospital appointment and when I arrived, Quince Cottage was everything that I expected it to be. Brendan, the owner was very pleasant and chatty and I was given a studio (with a small kitchen area) which was a lovely surprise.... More

We stayed at Quince Cottage at the end of our trip home to Ireland this summer. Brendan welcomed us warmly with delicious scones and jam, showing us to the 'apartment' which was brilliant as we have three young lads (the living area is separate, giving us somewhere to relax and watch tv in the evening after they are asleep). The... More

My nephew and I recently spent three days at Quince Cottage on a swing through the British isles. Brendan and Paula run a very clean, contemporary bed and breakfast. The guest house is located in a very quiet area, a short walk from the LUAS. We were fortunate to get the spacious apartment, which included a good-size kitchen. Brendan was... More

We were very happy with this bed and breakfast. There was a group of 12 staying here, and couldn't fault anything - rooms were clean and comfortable, owners friendly and gave us advice on how to get to places. Breakfast was great. There was a great array of pamphlets and books to read on the local attractions. The property also... More
