Good location, kind of. I hung my iPad off a coat hanger for wifi. Shower was clogged. People didn't flush in communal toilet. Would search elsewhere. Nice vegan cafe nearby, possibly a squat, better room mates.

I've been 2 nights in room 124 (ground floor). This is the worst accommodation I've ever been for 170 euros / 2 nights. The room has ONLY a bed and when I say ONLY, it means no chairs, wardrobe, night table or whatever else: just a bed. Also a destroyed shower. The carpet was dirty and badly smelling. I can... More

The Bed and Breakfast Hotel is located in the centre of Dublin, surrounded by wonderful pubs, a shopping street and a good public transport connection. The rooms are low standard, there is wifi in the 2 lower floors and the irish breakfast is tasty.

The Guesthouse is very basic, and I wouldn't necessarily have stayed for a long trip, but for a weekend it was perfect. Very good value for money and the staff are very friendly. The room was far too hot though - the radiator seemed to be on full, with no thermostat, so we slept with the window open. We overheard... More

This stay was not the best I have ever had! The room was 'basic' to say the least. The clothes closet had no door, the warm water was a trickle from the sing tap, the shared toilet facilities had just a simple slide-bolt lock and had non-frosted windows. Breakfast was the 'highlight' amid the gloom. I could not honestly recommend... More

The staff was very helpful with anything we asked of them. Location was right on bus lines including airport and 10 minute walk to see the Book of Kells at Trinity College. Breakfast was ordinary. Room needed some work. Mattress was old and lumpy.
