I had previously stayed here in October with my husband and we both loved it. The proprietors Mary and Willie could not be any more welcoming. The rooms are beautiful, the breakfasts are delicious and it is in a very central location. As I had to return alone in December, I was happy to stay here, it is a very... More

Stayed here for two nights. Friendly owners, the breakfast was good with a choice of cooked options. Room was fine. Convenient buses to city and airport. Much better value than anywhere in town and only a short bus ride away. Would be happy to stay here again.

Great family run B&B/Hotel (not sure of the difference) You are at the end of the number 14 bus route which runs into town in 20 minutes and close to Rathgar / Rathmines villages. Good points of the hotel include: - Irish breakfast - Friendly staff - Good location, if you don´t want to stay in the centre of Dublin... More

Really enjoyed our stay here! Felt extremely welcomed and the young lady was very helpful in getting us into Dublin as well as sending us on our next venture. House was beautiful. Breakfast was great. Room was good. We felt the bathroom/TV could use some updates. We really enjoyed everything! Thank you

I stumbled across this hidden treasure when recently looking for somewhere to stay for a weekend in Dublin. With Ardagh House I was not disappointed! From the minute of arrival till checking out you could not have asked for more. The owners Willie & Mary were very accommodating and could not do more to help you. Ardagh House is situated... More

We'd two rooms one which slept four and a second room which slept three. The showers and rooms are basis but comfortable. The breakfast was... More

Our family of five had a very pleasant 3-night stay at Ardagh House. Our two rooms were a bit small, but very clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were lovely and we appreciated Mary and Willie taking the trouble to get veggie sausages in for us. The property is in a great location - quiet, but just a bus ride from... More

We were so happy with our stay at the Ardagh house. Even before we arrived, we had correspondence with Mary who advised us about how to plan my visit in Ireland (even beyond Dublin)! Ardagh house went over and beyond the call of duty, allowing us to arrive after 11 and holding the bags we couldn't leave at the airport... More

I simply love this place. The rooms, the beds, the showers, the breakfast, Mary and Willie are so welcoming. The location is perfect, with just a 10 min bus ride into town. They will always assist when you are looking for directions or places to visit. Thank you again. Ivan and Pam.
