“Friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

My brother and I stayed at Donnybrook for a night when were in Dublin. We were greeted by Glen, who was very friendly and helpful - in fact, the service throughout our stay was exemplary. The staff are very knowledgeable and were able to give us many travel tips.

The room was comfortable and Terry made us a very nice breakfast in the morning - overall, excellent hospitality.

Donnybrook Hall was an exceptional Bed & Breakfast. A short bus ride away from Dublin City Centre. Terry and his staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast consisted of numerous choices, cooked to order. The room was clean and bright and very comfortable. We would definitely stay there again.

I stayed for three nights at Donnybrook. It far exceeded my expectations. My room was clean and very comfortable with all the amenities one would expect for a hotel. Terry and his staff went above and beyond to make sure i was comfortable. The made to order breakfasts were the highlight of my stay. Donnybrook is located in a very convenient and safe area. I had no problem taking the bus, which stops just a short walking distance up on the corner, into the city. I highly recommend Donnybrook hall for anyone planning a trip into Dublin.

We were warmly welcomed by Precious, a friendly and helpful young woman, who showed us to our room - a delighful little cabin at the bottom of the garden - and explained carefully how things worked and what to expect. She helped us get the car parked on the street, and oriented us to the neighbourhood. We really appreciated her warmth, lovely smile, and ready laugh. We met the owner, Terry, the next morning, who also welcomed us and helped us with suggestions and plans for visiting the city. Donnybrook Hall is ideally located on a quiet street, near the city centre and on a convenient bus route. Delicious breakfast. We appreciated being able to put a few things in the fridge. Room was clean and comfortable. Had to go into the main house to access the wifi.

Recently my sister and I traveled to Ireland with our fist two nights in Dublin. After a long flight and coming to an unknown place Terry the owner, gave us a very warm welcome. Even though the rooms are small they are clean and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was served in a charming sunny room, and was delicious. Terry and Debbie were very charming and welcoming. Great vallue.

My sister and I stayed at the Donnybrook on arrival in Dublin. We booked two nights and found the owner Terry to be so sweet and helpful. He treated us like friends and his daughter Debbie was also very helpful, Delicious breakfast. We had a twin room upstairs and Terry lugged our extremely heavy luggage up the stairs and down again when we left. The room was very clean but very tiny for two people and all our luggage. It was a nice quiet location.
