4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2007

The hillview house is on a big stretch of farmland near Skerries. Getting there can be a bit harrowing - it's on a very narrow country road that's about 1 and a half car widths wide. The turn off from the main road is marked with a very easy-to-see sign, though. As was mentioned earlier, they have a really big parking lot.

The interior is very dormatory-like. The rooms, while not huge, are comfortable enough with firm beds and some ensuite baths.

Breakfasts are held in a large breakfast room with a big kitchen. Juice, cereal, toast, and a full Irish breakfast is offered by the hosts.

They do have free wireless internet access for the guests, though when we were there they were having problems with it and we could never connect.

It wasn't quite what I'd call a warm-and-friendly atmosphere; the hostess was very business-like, but she was helpful enough in letting us leave our bags at the reception when we got to the B&B early, and giving us directions. We'd be happy to stay there again.

  • Liked — Utilitarian, easy to use home-base for Dublin & Surrounding Areas
  • Disliked — Little interraction with hosts, dormatory feel
  • Stayed September 2007, traveled as a couple

The Motel 8 of B&B's. No atmosphere, at the end of a long narrow road (not unusual) with no views(unusual). Nothing nearby to walk to. Nice dogs, good breakfast-fast, efficient, fresh fruit. The best thing about this B&B.
Large gravel parking lot. Enough space for a large truck (18 wheeler w/no load) to park and leave at 3:00 am. You have to pay Dublin rates, even though the train to Dublin is 10 minutes away with few parking spots.

  • Liked — breakfast
  • Disliked — location, atmosphere
