My wife gave me a surprise 40th birthday present by taking me to Dublin for the weekend and we couldn't have stayed in a better place. Very quiet, very friendly they couldn't do enough for you, and when my wife told them it was my birthday when we came back to our room I had a nice bottle of wine... More

We recently visited Ireland for a family funeral and due to circumstances were unable to stay where we generally do( with family). Ardagh house and its considerate and accomodating staff went above and beyond the call of ' duty' to provide us with exceptional hospitality. We were allowed to check in early(7am!) so we could sleep off jet lag, the... More

A very cozy and nice house. Rooms are comfortable and warm. We were on a family trip and had a great time in the hotel. Is not close to downtown Dublin but you can easily take a bus, a taxi or enjoy a 30-minute walk. A delicious breakfast is served between 7.30am and 9.30am. Staff is nice but strict. We... More

Stayed 4 nights for business. Homey place, rooms solid and clean. Breakfast good, but needs to offer, as an alternatve to sausage, more vegetables - even vegetable suasage or veggies omelette perhaps. Owners and staff all uniformly lovely and accommodating. Busline into city. Several good resturants within walking distance. Some rooms with essentially no Tv as it was so small... More

We couldn't get booked in any hotels in Dublin city centre because of the football last weekend, so my sister booked Ardagh House in Rathgar. It was a very good choice. We found everyone really helpful and welcoming. Mary and Willy are great hosts. The house and garden is lovely. The breakfast was very good and the service was efficient.... More

Clodagh was the best! There were 9 of us staying for 3 nights. She couldn't have been more helpful setting up our surprise guests. She always had great recommendations. Asha (spelling?) was super at breakfast. She was quick to help our group with whatever we needed. The location was excellent - walking distance to many eateries in Rathmines and on... More

Beautiful house & garden. Willie & Mary Doyle were the perfect hosts and made us feel so comfortable. They helped in every way to cater to our special needs. A enjoyable few days at the end of a wonderful trip in Ireland. "Sheila's Friends"

The thing about Ardagh House is that Billy and Mary always make you feel welcome - as though you were family returning. It's Great value – terrific breakfast – lovely people to deal with – very helpful.

Easily accessible to city centre. Spacious parking at the premise. Comfortable room, quiet considering is on street front. Nice neighbourhood. Willie and Mary Doyle are such wonderful hosts. Always making sure we are ok, happy. Beautiful house, huge. Big garden at the back with trees and gorgeous flowers. This place to stay is suitable for all.

We found this hotel through some recommendations in Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. Mary, Willie and the whole staff went out of their way to let our stay be as comfortable and accommodating as possible. At our request we were moved to a big room (No. 3) in the back of the house and facing the large backyard garden.... More
