“Amazing Bed and Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

We stayed at the Tinode House for a few nights and even though our reservations were a little skewed (on my part) Pj and Maureen were extremely accomodating and very nice until the end. Our room was so comfortable and Pj let's you in on all the discounted prices including the bus fares and all the tours. I would recommend this bed and breakfast to everyone, it is comfortable for a family of five or more or even for a small group of one or two. We absolutely loved it there and will be returning there the next time we visit Ireland.

Our family of 6 adults had the most wonderful time staying at the Tinode House. PJ and Maureen couldn't have been more accommodating to all of our needs! They helped us get acclimated to Dublin, sold us discounted bus and Hop-On/Hop-Off bus tickets and the bus stop is directly outside the house! We took a bus from the Dublin airport and the bus driver dropped us right at PJ's door. We were worried that the busy street would be nosy at night, but we never noticed it, even in the front bedroom. The location couldn't have been better and we ate just down the street several times at different restaurants. The rooms were perfect and we really enjoyed the sunroom and backyard for our afternoon happy hours (with glasses provided by PJ and Maureen)! I would recommend their home to anyone and hope to return someday!

Room Tip: All rooms are a little bit different (we rented 3/4) and they were all great!

This is an excellent B&B; we've stayed here twice. PJ is a fountain of information on Dublin and he & Maureen make you feel right at home. Great food, very clean rooms, wonderful breakfasts. We can't say enough about what a great place to stay when visiting Dublin. Highly recommended

it was one of the best places we stayed during our Ireland tour, from 19th to the 30th May.
Close location to the airport as well as to downtown, easy and quick access via bus.
Very nice and clean rooms. Great hospitality and very friendly.
We highly recommend this place.

We stayed with PJ and Maureen on our first and last night in Ireland because it was only a short distance from the airport. What we found was a clean, quiet and comfortable place to stay with a great breakfast. The bathroom was so clean that it looked like it was new and had never been used. The bed was comfortable and the house was quiet at night. Tinode House was by far the best B&B we stayed at in Ireland! Our hosts were friendly and knowledgeable and definitely gave us a great kick start (and finish) to a terrific trip.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 3. Clean, bright and well decorated.

My partner,Cristiane and I spent three nights in this B&B, I must say the standards were higher than I could have obtained from a hotel. PJ was absolutely articulate, polite and very friendly, advising us where to go, the places to see. The bed was comfortable and hygiene was excellent. The breakfast was absolutely beautiful. The B&B is absolutely stunning, situated in the right area, right next to a bus stop. I cannot thank PJ enough for his hospitality and friendly atmosphere in the B&B, I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending PJ's B&B to anyone looking for accommodation. I look forward to staying again!

We came to Ireland to visit family on the West coast so we needed somewhere for the day we arrived and for a couple of days before we left. PJ's Tinode House was perfect for our needs - not too far from the Ferry terminal by taxi, walking distance to the the car hire in Drumcondra, convenient buses into Dublin and an easy taxi ride to the airport when departing. And of course, a perfect place to stay.

PJ was a wonderful, friendly host who was happy to help out with sightseeing suggestions. We had Room 4 which was clean, comfortable and quiet (as you would expect from reading all the reviews). PJ's breakfasts each morning were wonderful and his recommendation of where to go for dinner was spot on.

As I have already said, a perfect place to stay in Dublin.
