My boyfriend and I stayed one night. The room was small but new, very confortable and with a thoughtful use of the space. We had shelves everywhere. The breakfast was good and it was very clean. The location was excelent!

This is a very new, slightly hipster guesthouse in the heart of Dublin. Internet was great. Reading lights poor. Our room was quiet although the earplugs left out were intimidating at first. No chair for the desk. DO NOT BRING A CAR. Besides being extremely difficult to find when driving (one way streets/construction), the parking arrangement at a nearby garage... More

Great place, loved the room. Our room looked over the back of the property and as such had lots of sun streaming in on one of our mornings here. The place is centrally located, close to Dame St, where you can access the site seeing buses, Temple Bar and also Grafton St. Continental breakfast is included in the tariff. Would... More

Great city centre location and very good value. Was in a single room, just refurbished, very nice bed and bathroom. Very small but perfect for my purposes. Not suitable for kids (don't think they accept children) or if you'll be going to bed early and need silence (it's a busy area at night) but great for single/couples in Dublin for... More

Great location and great decor. Just very small and without air-conditioning (which is very common in Ireland, but a bit shocking for an American). The staff were extremely friendly and the entire process was very simple and pleasant. The bed was my favorite part - very comfy!

Very close to the city centre, the Grafton Guesthouse is a good place to stay, not very expensive, in the booking there was included the breakfast in a french restaurant situated one minute walk from the hotel. Essential but tasty breakfast, I loved the brown bread with raspberry jam! Yummy! Cleaning service available. I Recommend it!

If you're not planning to spend any time in your room then this single would be great. It was clean but not much bigger than the single bed it held. The heat couldn't be adjusted so I left the window open. Wifi worked great and the continental breakfast was what I expected--bread cheese meat granola fruit salad. For what I... More

unfortunately our stay at the much acclaimed Grafton Guest House was very unpleasant, indeed. We were a party of three, and the "newly refurbished double" looked nice on the first instant, but turned out to be done with cheap material (like bad windows), the heating was not be controlled (although it said so), so there was nothing that would prevent...

Grafton Guesthouse was perfect for our needs. We weren't planning on spending much time in our rooms, so we didn't need anything extravagant. The property was centrally located to everything we could possibly want to walk to; the staff were very friendly and helpful; the beds were comfortable, and the room had everything we needed for our stay. Would definitely... More
