Its a lovely place located in a residential area. The managers are quiet warm any always asking if you needed any form of assistance. There are taxis at all times and the bus always runs by; there is a bus stop about 10 meters from the guest house. On first view the guest house has a Victorian look but the inside and rooms are modernised - beautiful rooms. + not more than 20 meters are convenient stores, restaurants and pharmacy!

We stayed here over Jewish New Year and chose it because of it's location near the Synagogues, Rathgar is nice little place and plenty choice for eating out. The guesthouse is run by lovely people friendly and very helpful, we had the Kosher breakfast which was very nice a cheese and fruit platter, kosher cheese and bread. They are very aware of the dietary requirements and most helpful. Decor is a little shabby but as this is a very large Victorian villa it kind of adds to it's charm, bed was very comfortable, and we had very good nights sleep, the area is quite so no noise problems. Driving through Dublin was also easy when we arrived (it was Sunday) and we managed to squeeze in a visit to the Jewish museum and a visit to family.

If you don't mind taking a bus/taxi to get near st stephens green (dublin city center) this is a great place.
although on arrival, our reservation had been lost, Monica immediately taken care of us giving us a room.
Our room (a twin room) was big enough for the two of us, the beds were comfy and the neighborhood is really silent at night so you can sleep very well.

Monica is the best !

Room Tip: Rooms on the back side of the building doesn't have windows that can open

Nice guesthouse, and despite the slightly old fashionned decor, the beds were extremely comfy, and the bathroom was clean! The lady running the place is lovely, very nice, helpfull and she cooked us a fantastic Irish Breakfast the next morning!
The available parking was ideal for car users, it is close to the city centre, so all in all, we were very satisfied with our stay at Abrae Court Guesthouse!
