3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I´m not sure about the other rooms but the single room is not good. Very small with no facilities (but a ~40 years old TV); - Bathroom was not clean; - Staff was rude when I asked for an adapter at 22h; - Internet service unavailable (except if you stay behind the door´s room)

Lovely proprietors and about a 10 minute walk into the centre of Dublin. There was quite a lot of rubbish on the street. The room was clean though and breakfast was OK . They let us leave luggage there whilst waiting to check-in.

An excellent central location. Clean and quiet. My hosts were pleasant and helpful. I would definitely stay here again!!! I had a single room with a shared bathroom which was fine for me. Not luxurious but clean and comfortable.

Fantastic breakfast with friendly host and made what you liked. Room was basic with loose sockets. Tv was to high and small you couldn't watch it. Within walking distance to centre with lots to do. Quite street and would go back.

Catherine and Brendan were amazing hosts! I stayed there for 4 days and am so happy I walked up to the Marion Guest House. The best breakfast I've had in a VERY long time as well.

My husband and I stayed one night and received excellent service. The room was spotless and lovely and warm. Catherine was so welcoming, friendly and extremely friendly. Our concert that we had planned to go to was cancelled but Catherine suggested a wonderful pub to go to and we had a brilliant night. Breakfast next morning was gorgeous. We would... More

Nice place, not far from the center. Old furniture but everything is clean and functional. A good choice for those who look for a quite place to sleep. The hosts are very friendly and helpful people. You get a good Irish breakfast.

Spent a few days in Dublin 7-11 April for a belated 25th anniversary celebration. So we had three nights B& B at Marian House. An excellent stay; Catherine really is the epitome of Irish hospitality…. friendly, welcoming, and very happy to help and to advise on any holiday matters arising! We greatly appreciated that we could drop our luggage off... More

Shared bathroom, not particulary clean room, stains and hair on sheets and towels, bed was making lots of noise, hairdryer in the hallway where everyone passes, low privacy. Staff was friendly, breakfast was really good and location is decent. Nice couple of small changes can bring this b&b long way. It's on the owners to recognize those things and improve.
