Just had a quick overnight stay at this hotel. Important aspect is its cheap and clean. I would actually have given 4 stars but for doors as felt they were not secure as previous reviews have alluded too. Can't comment on food but if you need somewhere to lay your head this is a great value option.

This B&B is situated in central Dublin, close to the major attractions and exactly in front of the river. It is cosy and the staff is friendly. Good breakfast and clean. However, no lift is installed!

I had the apartment on the front side of the Inn which overlooked the river. It was spacious and comfortable. I was traveling alone that day and the apartment was the only room available. It would definitely sleep three to four people. There was a decent kitchen and a washing machine. Plenty of tea and coffee, milk in the fridge,...

We stayed 5 nights in a spacious apartment with good comfortable beds, all kitchen amenities, free coffee and cookies in the room. The bathroom is small but ok. Only the shower needs replacing (no power and quite cold). Do not expect luxury- this is B&B and not a 5* hotel. It is basic with very good central location, right in...

The receptionist could not have been more helpful. We were a bit early but he got us sorted straight away with a room. It was on the top floor. It's a bit hard for those with a suit case but we were fine. The view was lovely, we could see the river flow right past our window. The room was...

Great location, comfortable rooms though they aren't huge they do the job! Walls are quiet thin and also hoovers going off from around 9:30 or so but it wasn't the worst and we quiet enjoyed our stay. Would have given it 4/5 stars but unfortunately the cleaners walked in to our room without knocking an hour and a half before...

The hotel is well located within walking distance of many attractions, and near the bus and a Redline tram (LUAS) stop. A very compact hotel. Rooms are VERY compact ... but are clean and very comfortable. The staff are very helpful. The breakfasts are great; cooked to order and as much as you can eat. The rooms facing the road...

It's in a great location, right on the river and in the centre of town, walking distance from everything. However, it was so small, you can't really move around in your room, the bathroom and shower are even smaller. But what can you expect in the middle of Dublin! Breakfast was great!
