We stay with husband only one night. Hotel are in the center of city. The breakfast was tasty, the staff was helpful and friendly. B&B building in some places need repair. We had the shower in the room, but toilets was in another floor.

We've spent 1 night in this B&B and it was horrendous. First of all we didn't realize the toilets are going to be outside the room, but that was my mistake not to check the description properly. The place was really old and i guess the only way to describe it was gross. The cleaners did what they could and... More

Simply the most disgusting hotel I've ever seen. I don't even know where to start. Checkin was awful -- the staff member was in a horrid mood and as there are only two rooms on each flight of stairs the hike up to the top is quite difficult. The room was very dirty. We were "lucky" to have a shower... More

As I was going to be in Dublin for a few days, I was looking for somewhere central, and good value for money. Some of the prices that were been asked were ridiculous, so when I seen this B&B offered for 40 Euro a night, I took it. It needs lots of improvements, but I wont complain, as you get... More

As 3 students in Ireland for a long weekend this guesthouse was perfect and good value for money! Check-in from 3pm was quick and easy and we weren't obliged to pay as soon as we arrived. We had a triple room on the second floor with a double bed and a single bed. We found the room slightly small, but... More

We got a room with a bathroom in it. It was very small and the bed wasn't much more than springs, but after a long days walk through Dublin I didn't sleep too badly. Breakfast was excellent and the staff was all very friendly, I got what I paid for and more. Id say it was overall a good place... More

stayed here overnight last week as missed a flight from dublin. This is probably the worst place i have ever stayed. Firstly the television did not work, the curtains were filthy dirty, the carpet not much better, the noise of people coming in and banging doors kept me awake all night. No toilet in room either. for 60 euro for... More

Located quite central, serving decent breakfast, this guest house seems to be a good choice. The only (but serious) problem I had is that the walls are very thin, and I was lucky enough to get one of rooms 107, 108, 109 which are all located next to the entrance. You can hear everybody coming in, going out, looking for... More
