Very gracious and helpful hosts help to balance the small room. Small for our luggage yet all the necessities required for travel if you aren't planning on being in the room too long. Excellent breakfast in a room that tells stories through family photographs. Close to the bus line for a 25 min ride into Dublin. The helpfulness of these... More

Sean and Ann were warm and welcoming, and quite accommodating. We arrived early and they were happy to let us leave our stuff so we could go into town. The room had a large window and was clean. Breakfast was good, and the wifi was fast.

Had to stop in Dun Laoghaire for work and picked Santa Cruz because it was close to Dublin City and close to a beach and the sea ( as I like to swim in the sea whenever I can ) there is also a fantastic port to visit and two piers to walk with lots of restaurants and coffee shops... More

Recently stayed 2 nights on holiday. Friendly welcoming couple, with a cup of tea and biscuits on arrival. Breakfast was good, strawberries were a nice touch, however there was a grubby lid on the sugar bowl and the tablecloth was a bit stained. Oh dear, the bedroom! On opening the door, it banged into the dressing the table. The back... More

This is literally a Bed and Breakfast and anyone expecting frills and trimmings will be disappointed. That said the owners were exceptionally pleasent and overall there is a very comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. The room was clean, there was hot water and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was standard and we were offered more if required. In general all the... More

I selected this B & B based on location (proximity to relatives and a pub where we always gather). Because there was no single room I got charged sixty Euros! As it turns out, I could have stayed in a local hotel for nine Euros more. Room was small and cool, with two single beds and not a lot of... More
