My wife and I, along with another couple traveling with us, had the pleasure of staying with Garvan, Kevin and Fred the dog for several days during our recent trip to Dublin. Rather than feeling like guests our welcome felt more like old friends returning after a long absence. Our hosts couldn't have been more accommodating. Our respective rooms were immaculate and wonderfully decorated. Garvan's breakfasts were amazing and served on a white linen tablecloth accompanied by candles and soft music - a wonderful way to start the day. Being unfamiliar with Dublin we were a little uncertain about transportation options to get around the city but were pleased to find the B&B an easy 10 minute walk from McConnell Street with Temple Bar nearby. Garvan and Kevin were able to provide great tips on places to go and things to do that took us away from the normal tourist locations to places that only a long-time Dubliner would know. We love Ireland and the Irish and our hosts reflected the best of what this wonderful country has to offer.
