The hotel is in a fairly decent area of the city for walking into the city center along O'Connell. There are a lot of shops around, ie clothes, groceries etc. Also, the bus stops for the airport are a short walk from here. That is about where the good points slow down. We may not have read enough reviews, but... More

Hi Emhug, Thank you for taking the time to write your review and your comments about your recent stay at the Kingfisher Townhouse. You are correct that we had a fire in our restaurant and we are closed for a short period of time while we renovate and reopen shortly. Our restaurant has been in business for over 40 years... More

Staying at this hotel was a disappointing experience. The room was in great need of renovation. The bathroom was icecold, and the water in the shower was not properly warm. This hotel is greatly overpriced.

Dear Evayxa, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at the Kingfisher. I am very disappointed to hear that you think our hotel room was over priced for your stay. We maintain very competitive prices with all of the other 3 and 4 star hotels in city center location. Our hotel rooms are spotless, we provide... More

Our family of 3 stayed in a triple room at Kingfisher Townhouse for 3 nights in April 2016. I've been very seldom let down by TripAdvisor, but this was one of those times. We had high hopes based on the positive reviews and the photos, but we definitely felt duped. First of all, our room looked little like the photos.... More

Stay here with work quiet a bit, it's a very well located b/b price is reasonable going by Dublin standards, the stairs to the rooms are on the noisy side of things. Place is clean & good overall. Very friendly staff Restaurant next door is very good .

Convenient location for concerts and shopping. Modern and fresh decor with thoughtful extras (bottled water and ear plugs - ear plugs not required!). There is 3 car parking spaces available in a very roomy private car park in the basement - 10 euros a night or work a deal and get it included with the room. Get 10% off meals... More

I spent ages reviewing different places to take my friends for a hen party- I wanted somewhere fairly low priced but also clean and well presented. The apartment was beautiful, well decorated and well kept and the staff were friendly and helpful. I will definitely go again!!!

Myself and a friend stayed at here for one night and what a brilliant place it is! The room was spotless and could not fault anything in the room. Everything was clean, prepared and had a kettle, hair dryer, complementary toiletries etc. The staff were friendly and did everything to help us from writing directions down on a map, giving...

I stayed for 2 nights.. and what I paid was not cheap. The photos looked great but the reality was disappointing. The female staff at reception were helpful.. This place was described as a family run hotel.. so I expected a cosy non-corporate feel. However there was not personal touch at all. Nothing family or cosy about this place. I... More

I recently stayed for 2 nights in the Kingfisher Townhouse in Dublin, Ireland. It was very clean, centrally located, and the people were very nice. I would stay there again, if it weren't for the expensive price tag. We stayed 2 nights and paid around $550. Granted this was around St. Patrick's day, I still didn't think the room was... More
