I stayed at this place several times as after a first positive experience I couldn't but consider it as my first option in the Dublin area.

Sanctuary Cove is located on the waterfront with a wonderful view and great places to walk to enjoy that view. The rooms are average in size for Irish B&B's, very clean, decorated nicely and comfortable. The bathroom was small (as are most Irish B&B) but the shower was hot. Kathleen gave us a warm welcome and was very helpful in...
