“Food to die for & owners that care”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Staying at the Number 31 was the perfect way to start a vacation in Ireland: charming and gracious. The atmosphere was welcoming and location very good. The breakfast was honestly the best meal of our entire trip--and if it were a restaurant I would have come here even if I was staying elsewhere. Some people just know how to run a hotel the right way.

Room Tip: The rooms are nice with good bathroom facilities--but the draw is the overall ambience, the service...

The rooms at 31 are beautiful and the breakfasts were absolutely the best we had on our entire trip. You also can't beat it's location - it's a very easy walk to everything you'd want to see while still being nestled in a quiet neighborhood. One thing to note - we stayed on the 4th floor and there was no elevator, which meant a lot of stairs. If that's an issue for you, I'd recommend asking for something closer to ground floor. Overall outstanding, though. Recommended.

Room Tip: Ask for the ground floor if you can't handle stairs.

I stayed here around the same time last year and had an excellent stay so upon returning to Dublin did not think to look elsewhere and booked this property. We were not disappointed, again we enjoyed our stay very much. Spacious room, comfortable beds and excellent breakfast, service and facilities but above all the charming hosts are what will make us come back here every time we visit Dublin.

A flying visit to Dublin offered the opportunity to stay at this boutique guest house where we received a warm welcome. The room was warm, comfortable and reasonably spacious and great care has clearly gone into the decor and fittings throughout. The location is convenient, walkable of most areas you would be likely to visit on a short trip and importantly close to an Aircoach stop making easy access to and from the airport.
They boast about their award winning breakfasts ..... and every word is true!

We arrived at the little back door late at night and were very well looked after from the start with someone parking our car for us - just what we needed arriving late and tired in a strange city. We were shown to our room in the Georgian house which was well appointed with a nice bathroom. We were on the top floor and the rooms lower down looked a lot grander. Quite a lot of stairs but someone carried our bag for us which was welcome. I would have liked tea making facilities in the room, though it is available in the lounge if you want it. Breakfast in the conservatory was very nice indeed. Host, Nowell, was charming as were all the staff. When we left, the car was parked right outside the door. All in all you couldn't fault it - I did think it was a little pricey but that seems to be Dublin.
