My husband and I were in Ireland for 8 days the end of Sept and beginning of Oct. We stayed at Hollybank the first third of our trip, went to Dingle Pennisula, then went back to Dublin staying at a different B&B. Out of the three places, Hollybank B&B was the best (and it deserves a high rank from other B&B's I have been to at various places around the US and Europe). Sibohan (pronounced Sivon) was such a wonderful host, very attentive and helpful. She is also a very good cook (best scrambled eggs! yes, it is easy to make scrambled eggs, but it is hard to make GOOD scrambled eggs). The room we stayed in was nice and clean. My only complaint is that it was cramped because of the king size bed (which was actually two twin size pushed together). The location is about a 45min walk to the city centre but a nice walk. If you are not a fan of walking, the buses run right in front of the street where the B&B is located. The botanical garden is also close by, along with pubs and restaurants. If we were to go back to Dublin, I would definitely stay there again.
