The room wasn't that bad, but everything else was terrible! Just avoid it if you can... The breakfast was awful, the staff unfriendly, the noise unstoppable. Oh and the place seemed dirty. I just wanted to leave as sono as I could in the morning. I surely won't go there again. And it isn't close to any dart station either.... More

We arrived in Dublin at 10:30pm last Friday. On the way to the hotel from the airport the taxi driver rang ahead to the hotel to confirm directions. When asked if we had a reservation, we confirmed we did, It was then that we were told by the owner that he didn't in fact have room for us. No sorry... More

Room was roomy and the bed comfortable although noisy for us as we had a room facing the road.. Easy to find with plenty of parking and close to bus route to city centre. (IMPORTANT Note the buses take coins only!!) Breakfast was a weak point hence downgrading the rating to only average. Only Flora (not butter), instant not ground... More

I wouldn't recommend this B&b. Had to ask for second towel. Continental style breakfast only. I expected a better selection for breakfast. Bread was out of date.Cleanliness was just about up to standard. Certainly wouldn't stay here again. €120 per night!

This place is filthy, unwelcoming, spartan and overpriced. The only welcome we got upon arrival was the credit card machine and the owner's hand out looking for my credit card, without literally uttering a word of welcome, and although he was guaranteed payment through booking.com. We arrived at 3.30pm on Sat and had no further human contact with the owner... More

Hard to call it hotel or bed and breakfast. Please forget to go there. Anything ANYTHING acceptable. I paid a single small room for a double room. Breakfast is orrible, no comfort at all. Room too small for two. Could not even close the shower's door.

The place is filthy, staff very unhelpful, noise of n11 unbearable, breakfast frozen, then let de-frost, disgusting, staff snooping in my room while I was out. It's cheap for a reason, it's class-less...

I was stuck for somewhere to stay I needed something cheap and this popped up. Mould on the ceiling and in the bathroom, staff weren't as nice as he could be. I will never return. Needs some serious work doing on the place. Location is good
