“Amazing breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Stayed for one night and cannot speak highly enough of the incredible breakfast. The service provided was also outstanding. The hosts were extremely helpful and provided many ideas of child friendly activities to fill the days.
The location is perfect close to many sites and restaurants.
Unfortunately we stayed during the Irish heatwave and the building was really hot, and is clearly designed to keep the heat in, which would normally be ideal. However, we did not get much sleep due to the heat, but this is my only gripe and ordinarily would not be an issue.

Number 31 is a unique hotel in a location convenient to many sites in Dublin. Our room (number 46) was very comfortable and large, but the bathroom was a bit cramped. All of the staff were wonderful and Noel and Hannah were very helpful. Breakfasts were eggcellent! Poached eggs every morning! We very close to St Stephen's Green, Grafton Street, Trinity College, and so many other sites. Can't wait to visit again!

Room Tip: Next time, I would like to try a room in another part of the hotel.

A great cozy location in a busy city. Rooms are comfortable but the service and breakfast set it apart! A little hard to find so make sure to have directions. Noel, the proprietor, was first class. When we could not find the hotel, he personally came and found us. We also needed to return our rental car and not knowing the city! Noel insisted personally once again getting is there and waiting almost an hour! Staff is very knowledgable about the city. A few great pubs/restaurants close by and other sites were an easy and pretty walk 15 minutes away

We have stayed in number 31 several times and in our view it should called Number 1, cos that's what it is. Noel is the consummate host and all the staff are friendly, helpful and good at their jobs. The rooms are restful and well-furnished and the beds super-comfortable. Sure, it's a bit noisy (traffic and nocturnal seagulls!) but it is a city centre hotel....what do you expect? The location is excellent too. We'll be back!

We reserved a deluxe double room (220euro) and had high expectations after reading the rates in tripadvisor. We arrived in the evening and met a lady who seemed to be in a hurry to finish her day. After a few minutes came Chris and took us to our room. This was a shock- without any notice he took us up the stairs-4 floors! We were carrying part of the bags and by the time we arrived the room on the top we had no breath. He gave us the key without even opening the door. We entered and found ourself in a tiny room facing the noisy street.
It took us less than a minute to decide to leave the place and go to another hotel. We went down the 4 floors, this time no one helped us with our suitcase and we struggled by ourself.
This was the worst experience we had in ireland

Room Tip: Better try somewhere else

Noel and the rest of the staff were amazing. We were so fortunate to have chosen this lovely place to stay. The breakfast could be the best in Ireland. The rooms were fantastic and comfortable. They were extremely accommodating in every way, including booking us great restaurants for dinner!!! We felt a great connection here and will miss them! Highly recommend!!!

We didn't get to meet the lady of the house which is a shame because apparently she is responsible for the amazing decor! I mean, words cannot describe the every detail that went into this beautiful establishment. If you're interested in design at all, look no further.
A haven in a busy metropolis, minutes from St. Stephen's Green and great access to public transport it must be said.
The service was exceptional, from Adam who brought me my much needed coffee on arrival to the morning staff who served us really the best breakfast ever. After getting carried away talking to some lovely Nashvillians over breakfast in the communal breakfast area, I turned back to my cup to find a fresh pot waiting for me. Now that is service. For a busy mom who is taken up all of the time helping everyone else, I felt minded, welcomed and in a happy cocoon for my two night stay. Maybe I need to get out more often, but If I could, I would make that outing to this lovely accommodation in our nation's capital, perhaps the promise of a yearly trip there. Fingers crossed ;) Thankyou kindly!
