Had a great three night stay with Paul and Eileen within walking distance of City Center. Walked everywhere and enjoyed the city and the hospitality. Eileen's restaurant and further travel suggestions were perfect. We'd highly recommend a stay with the Coughlin's.

Portobello B&B was absolutely perfect for our family's trip to Dublin. We had 6 adults, 3 rooms a piece and the B&B suited us wonderfully. Each couple had their own room and bathroom which were very private and clean. Eileen and Paul were wonderful hosts. Every morning we'd wake up and have our own table to enjoy their home cooked...

Eileen is an exemplar hostess and Paul is welcoming and charming as well. The residence has a great location as mentioned. The rooms are well-maintained and very comfortable, and the bathroom is en suite. Breakfast is always a plus, and these owners provide a hearty start to the day. Portobello strikes a good balance of cozy and updated. If you... More

Eileen and Paul were lovely hosts and have a beautiful B&B. Very easy to access from the airport or city center, €3.30 on the 16 bus straight there from the airport or even just a 20 minute walk to the city center. Nice restaurants, cafes, and pubs nearby. Beds were made every day and breakfast was nice with many options... More

Great b&b in a great location. There is a bus stop right outside the b&b which can be taken into the city. Or walking into the city would take just over 10mins The woman, Aileen was so helpful. When we wanted to know what things we could do in Dublin she always had suggestions and would help us find our... More

A very warm welcome from Eileen and Paul for us and our family. Cosy rooms in old Victorian town house. On a busy road but we were in the middle of town. Garage parking round the back. Very polite and chatty hosts making you feel really at home. Everything worked and was new , modern and clean. Comfy bed ,... More

I stayed at this hotel whilst visiting Dublin at the end of October. Eileen and Paul could not have been more welcoming. The rooms were immaculate and beds extremely comfortable. There was a lovely choice at breakfast and nothing was too much trouble. Would definitely return if I were to return to Dublin in the future

I was very disappointed to have booked two nights next week - booking was confirmed verbally - I then rang by happen chance only to be told that the room was not available, despite the booking already being taken. Very poor communication, not professional. No offer of another accommodation recommendation, insincere apology.
