Very friendly & welcoming owner. B&B ideally situated beside St James Hospital and easy access to city centre and surrounding areas such as Crumlin Hospital via bus and Luas. Stayed in the double room ensuite and found it comfortable and a hearty breakfast include the following morning.

We had a triple room at the top of the house. It was large, quiet, sunny and comfortable. Our host was wonderfully helpful and breakfast was delicious. We would love to come back again next time we visit Dublin.

The Portland, although fairly basic, offers a comfortable bed, a hearty breakfast and a location that allows easy access to O'Connell Street and centre activities . Good value for money, and ideal as a base if you want budget accommodation. You have to pay for your accommodation cash, which means a bit of forward planning. The property has WIFI, but... More

If you're only needing 1 night to rest your bones, then this would suffice. Clean bed in a very basic room with breakfast for 2 cost 90€. Short bus ride into town (number 123) so handy for amenities. Our room also had its own unique tooth mug with a hole in the bottom. Who says oral hygiene can't be fun!

Lovely lady, very friendly.... However the room was too small for a twin room, no bedside cabinets, no bedside lamps, very old and small TV. Hot water - whenever the boiler switches on.... My opinion - a single room sold as a twin room.

I found the proprietor very friendly and helpful when i met her. Prior to my stay she was very prompt with email replies. The place was recommended to me as an ideal location for visiting at James's hospital and it was just that. The area was safe enough to walk in the evening and easy walking distance to the hospital... More

as stated above, then when I rang to enquire on how this could happen (after i was emailed and told the bad news 3 days after paying the deposit) the landlady started screaming down the phone ( and i really do mean hysterically screaming) that it was "not her problem" & i quote "she wasn't used to dealing with internet...
