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

A short bus ride from Dublin Center, Ardagh house is a terrific B&B. Run by Mary & Bill - efficient, good breakfast, hospitable and always there to help. 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

I stayed at this hotel for 3 days, hospitalality is excellent, rooms have thin walls. It's a bit out of the city, but there's a bus nearby that runs every 30 minutes. All in all, a pretty good value given prices in the city

To be honest, we settled for this place while trying to find a good deal in Dublin. By the time we figured out that "good deals on B&Bs" didn't exist in Dublin, this was really the only thing left that was in our price range. (And it was still a little above our price range.) €105 per night, when we... More

So convenient to city centre, elegantly comfortable, immaculate, delicious breakfast. Since all rooms have ensuite bathrooms, very private and quiet. Views of courtyard or lovely garden. An easy direct bus ride of 20 minutes to city centre.
