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

I have stayed in Ardagh many times, and recently delighted to have stayed once again. Ardagh is a gem in this fast paced world where at times one is met with discourtesy and lack of consideration in guest accomodation. Not so in Ardagh!! Hence they have such tremendous loyalty shown to them by their guests. Ardagh is very centrally located... More

We were made to feel very welcome and comfortable. The building is lovely and well looked after. There is a large garden. The bus into the centre of Dublin stops nearby. Shops, pubs and cafes in walking distance. Wi fi was useful. The staff are very attentive. We will choose to stay again.

Ardagh House was a great place to stay while in Dublin. It is a beautiful house that was built over 100 years ago and has all the character of that time period, but yet kept up and very comfortable! Mary and Willie were so nice...and the breakfast was wonderful!! The whole staff was so kind and always helpful.

Ardagh House is a beautiful old house with lots of period features. The bedroom was comfortable, with all mod cons including wi-fi. Willie and his staff could not be more helpful. The breakfast was excellent and filling. The house is in a peaceful setting, Highfield Road is very quiet and within easy reach of Dublin town centre. Driving around is... More

We enjoyed our second stay - nice spacious rooms, very clean, and well priced. You will enjoy the friendly atmosphere and the accommodating staff. We ended up here in 2012 when all... More
