This was our first stay and won't be our last. Elizabeth was so kind and friendly. Breakfast was great! Our room was cozy quiet and just the right distance from Dublin. - 10 min by bus, Can walk to shopping and local pubs. It is just around the corner from the Botanical Gardens and the old cemetery.

Very convenient to bus stop and city center you can stroll downtown in 20 minutes. The Hostess Liz couldn't have been more kind, friendly and helpful. They really made our stay in Dublin extra...

Acara House B&B is our favorite place to stay while in Dublin. We had a lovely stay recently at this B&B. It was really comfortable and the breakfast was very good! It was also in a good location for visiting Dublin City Centre and the Airport! Everything was just perfect - thank you!!
