“Number 31 is #1 in our book!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

This charming inn located about a 5 minute walk from St. Stephen's Green is fabulous!!! The owners take pride in this property and it shows. We flew in from the states and sent a note stating that our flight would be early (as in 5am) and would it be possible to check in early. Low and behold, our room was ready for our weary bodies and the entire staff could not have been more accommodating! Additionally, a traditional Irish Breakfast is included in the price of the room and was EXCELLENT. Overall, I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a beautiful setting, clean and comfortable room, and a wonderful breakfast. Thanks to the owners and staff at Number 31.

When we arrived we were greeted with a lovely cup of tea and cookies. Our room was large,very beautiful and had excellent beds and bedding. My only complaint about the room was the lack of light. There was a comfy chair to sit in, but absolutely no light to read by. Very poor light in the bathroom as well. Good location. Nice courtyard and great breakfast.

Fond memories, great rooms, friendly service, clean, cute garden, and great breakfast meaning overall great value and satisfaction. A real haven amongst the city! And all with a smile and that personal touch. A wonderful first or last stop in Ireland to gather yourself and explore the CBD. Wonderful.

This hotel is tucked away and easy to pass by, but it was a great location for exploring Dublin for the first time. We were welcomed immediately from our overnight flight with a great breakfast and a place to store our bags. Maps of the city were provided and places to see and eat were circled. We were in Ireland with our two grown daughters and our niece and we all had rooms in the Georgian townhouse through the garden. The rooms were spacious and nicely decorated, and the townhouse had its own door to the side street. The hospitality was outstanding and the breakfast was incredible. Number 31 takes about 5 minutes to get to st Stephens green which was our key starting point for exploring. Great location and gets you out of the center for a quieter nights sleep.
When I return to Dublin this is where I will stay.

Let me start by saying that this is a lovely hotel with a very charming host and staff. In addition, they serve a delicious breakfast. And now for what could use improvement... First, in order to get Wi-fi you need a voucher that requires a password and you have to register on a website and it all is a lot more complicated than it should be. Every other place provides one simple code. Second, we could not control the heat in our room and we first baked like potatoes then fried like chips until we decided to open the window to a noisy Dublin street that lead to sinus issues the next morning from being exposed to the elements. We also got little sleep due to the discomfort. I don't recommend this hotel if you have problems climbing stairs or if you want to be in close proximity to all the action of Dublin. It is definitely a good mile walk in the coldest of Ireland weather to get to pub central if you stay here. On the other hand, if you want away from the tourists, there is a nice pub full of locals just a few blocks away. They will direct you.

Be prepared to work at finding #31, our cab driver drove past it twice. Walking up to a moodily lit door in an alley, think 1920's speak easy isn't for everyone. But once inside it nicely furnished and very peaceful.
We had a room in the Georgian townhouse through the garden. It is beautifully decorated, traditional and trendy all at the same time. Our room was nice but the definition of European, read that as small. It took some discussion and a little geometry to figure out where to put our suitcases. Between the two beds, the armoire, the two wing back chairs, two end tables and a dresser it took some doing to fit, but we made it happen. Also could have used a couple more plugs in the bedroom.
Very nice bathrooms. Roomy with nice finishing touches. I am so glad one of the other reviews mentioned having some difficulty with turning the shower on. It really did take a bit to make it work, but once it got going the water pressure and temp were good.

Noel and Linda are wonderful hosts. The breakfast is one of my fondest memories of my trip to Ireland. Best breakfast ever. A “ wee” bowl of porridge and a tasty omelette are the perfect fuel for a day of exploring. It was really nice to visit with the other guests over breakfast in the family style dining room.
Noel was very helpful in navigating the city and had some great suggestions on how to organize our time to make sure we covered everything.

Overall pleased with our stay at #31.
