We arrived at Anchor House at the end of our trip to Ireland. Cae parking was booked in advance and this removed a major problem of where to park the car. Anchor House has a superb location. We walked from it to Trinity College, then on to St. Stephens. Green. It was humiliating to realise one was standing in a... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here with her family in August and loved it. Great location, great breakfast and comfortable rooms. The couple who own it are lovely and made us feel right at home. Walking distance to Temple bar and all the sites, definitely stay here.

Stayed 17-19th Sept...requested a room at the back of the house which was granted- nice and quiet no issue with road noise. The room (22) was spacious and clean with a TV and tea/coffee making facilities..bathroom was a good size and the shower was powerful too....always a bonus. Now,breakfast is included...and it's OK. But only that. Very basic: bacon, sausage,beans... More

I was staying for a few days at the Anchor House in August and again in September 2016. On both occasions I was welcomed warmly bij the friendly staff. The rooms are nice, with a good shower. Breakfast is fine too. In short: I will be glad to visit the Anchor when I return to Dublin! Natasja Boom The Netherlands

Excellent location, just across the river away from the main hub of the town made this the ideal place to stay and explore all Dublin has to offer. The room we had was clean and had all that you would need for a couple of nights. The bathroom was clean (although the shower tray could do with updating a bit),... More

We came across Anchor House by accident but what a find! Great location and price, awesome staff and service. Rooms are compact but clean, breakfast is huge and we loved it!!! Would definitely recommend them. So close to busy O'Connell St shopping and restaurants.

We had originally scheduled and paid for three nights ( Aug. 2016) at the Anchor House based upon the advertised hype as a "Charming B&B ". We were required to " pay up front for our stay"! When we made the reservations, they claimed they were full and had no more double rooms available so, we had to take a... More

Apologies for you not having a pleasant stay here. You paid for your 3 night stay on arrival and you were refunded for 2 nights on checkout next morning. Good you enjoyed The Hilton which appears to have suited your needs better. Regards, Joan More

This is a comfortable B&B in a good location close to the bus station and not far from the train station and DART. It is on a busy road and therefore is quite noisy. request a room facing away from the street. Also quite possibly the smallest shower stall I have ever seen. good breakfast. no elevator.
