If you are looking for something a little special and authentically Irish, this is THE place to come and stay. Warm friendly staff, a beautiful unique property and breakfasts to die for.
A little tricky to find, but don't let that deter you. This little jewel is worth seeking out.
I will be back!

The owner, Noel, is a treasure. Not only is he extraordinarily pleasant and humorous, he is also witty, polite, helpful and knowledgable. He and his staff provided great eating recommendations, touring ideas and directions.
Breakfast was delicious and varied options.
My greatest frustration was finding the place. Leeson close is a little alley; hard to find. And to the best of my knowledge, is not marked as a B&B. the door just bears the number on it and is surrounded by ivy. Once buzzed past the door, one enters a courtyard. Then, a glass window marked with the name of some architectural firm but no bnb name. Ok enough about that. Rooms are large, clean and a bit spartan. Detail is good but goes along with general funky nature of place. 31 is only a five minute walk from Sussex bar ( pretty good food and reasonable) and Canal bar. Canal bar is great, busy, buzzy and worth the commotion. Canal is more french influence with sussex still trying to find its niche. Location pretty good; a 5-10 minute walk from st. Stephen's and 30-45 from guiness.

Room Tip: Be mindful of street noise like any other city.

Second time staying at Number 31, and we went out of our way just to stay there this past weekend. Excellent location, and the hospitality is just amazing. No complaints whatsoever. Very relaxed & homely atmosphere, and probably one of the few places left whereby you can truly feel at home whilst travelling. Nothing bad to say about the place. Another very pleasant stay, and we'll be back next time we're in Dublin.

Grood location, good room, great welcome, fantastic breakfast!
The only bad point is that the price was too high as it had no hotel facilities as such.
I would certainly go back again if the price was a bit lower.

The welcome was indeed both warm and competent, the breakfast excellent, and the beds good. Tea and coffee available at any time on request. Elegant decoration.

A few small quibbles. Bathroom very dark, room quite dark. Room had single glazing on to street, but noise not a problem at night. No bath, just a shower, though other rooms may differ. Towels rather small. Hard to find somewhere to plug in the hair dryer. More of a guesthouse than a hotel and as such not cheap. Would I recommend it? Yes.

Room Tip: If size of room, noise or type of bathroom is an issue for you then telephone first.

I was booked in here as we have a college in Dublin. Initially we were dropped off by a taxi in front of a non descript wooden door. We owned it up and went in, met by edwardo who offered us a drink. The place is fantastic, it's basically a massive house split by a fantastic sunken garden. We walked across and my room was the biggest and comfy bed ever. In the morning everyone was very friendly and the breakfast was the best I have had. I always judge these things on would I stay here with the family, a definite yes from me.
