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.

Loved the abundant breakfast, prompt service, and caring attitudes of the managers! Will totally come back next time. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Thank you Mary! Strolled amongst the gardens and was easy walking distance to shops and the park! :)

Wonderful staff, clean, fresh linens & towels daily, good shower, super breakfast overlooking garden, close to bus stop, Mexican embassy is a neighbor. Liked my 3rd floor corner room as I had a window in the bathroom plus the one in bedroom. Thus a cross breeze, Would choose again if returning to Dublin.

We were a party of two adults and two teenage children and stayed in a quad room for 3 nights. It was more comfortable than we were expecting and, although not huge, there was plenty of space for us all, and the beds were lovely. It was also very quiet with a nice outlook over the garden. Breakfast was great... More

this small family run hotel is located in Rathgar, in the very nice area by Palmerston park. we picked it because it's only walking distance from the school where my partner attended a week long english full immersion. we were very happy with the choice, mostly in light of the location - it's a really lovely neighborhood, and the bus...

Friendly staff, clean rooms, quiet location. Beautiful garden. Convenient to City Centre via bus or taxi. Wide variety of breakfast options--they even accommodated my gluten-free needs! Only downfall: bathrooms are tiny! Nevertheless, we really enjoyed our stay.

We couldn't fault the room or the service. The room wasn't massive but it was clean and no smaller than we expected for the price. The breakfast was lovely and certainly set us up for our day exploring Dublin, we were offered more tea and toast countless times. It is not the closest place to the city centre but it... More
