Good parking at the hotel. No lift in the hotel, so request a room downstairs if stairs are a problem. The room was unheated in October, with no way of adjusting the controls. No wifi in the room, and only upon arrival did I learn from the room's handbook that it is only in some rooms. Not mine, sadly! Hotel... More

The service was very friendly and breakfast was nice if a bit limited. (Tea was excellent.) The rooms were clean if worn, and we had several (cultural?) problems in the beginning with using the shower, drawing the curtains(!) and flushing the toilet. The bus to the centre didn't take long, but they ran at longish intervals during the weekend. All... More

My friend and I stayed here for two nights when we first arrived in Dublin after 30hrs of flying. The beds were comfortable and our room was surprisingly warm. We forgot that we were provided with breakfast - so that was a welcome surprise! We expected to just have to cereal and fruit which was on show, but they brought... More

We stayed at Ardagh House with a company of four (all hailing from Germany) from August 31 until September 4, 2016. All four of us agree that our time was a really pleasant experience in all aspects. Ardagh House is nicely located in a quiet neighbourhood just at the right distance to the city centre of Dublin which can be... More

Beautifully maintained, B&B with quaint, immaculate rooms, stately dining and lounge areas, excellent breakfast and ample parking. The proprietors,Mary and Willie Doyle, are a real joy, immensely friendly ,considerate and helpful. Readily accessible to Dublin tourist areas though not within walking distance .

We fortunately stayed in some very lovely accommodations with some really wonderful Hosts. Ardagh House has been our 10 out of 10 best stay. We spent 10 easy nights and 10, 5 star Breakfasts with Mary... More

I was in Dublin on a business trip, Ardagh was my house for two weeks; Very well run place and friendly staff. Excellent breakfast, but not much change on it for a long stay, so I did skip a few days for and explored other places along the street. It is a good choice, but keep in mind that you... More

We were staying in Ardagh House while attending to Bruce Springsteen concerts in Dublin. The hotel is situated in quiet neighborhood but has good bus connections to Dublin city. Hotel has beautiful garden although we didn't have as much time to enjoy it as we would have liked because we spend most of the time queing to the concerts. Our... More

We chose this place based on previous reviews and were not disappointed. The house is lovely and we had a nice view of the garden. The breakfasts are cooked to order and are delicious. It is well situated with an easy bus ride into the city centre and plenty of restaurants within walking distance. The staff are warm and welcoming.... More

This is the second time I have stayed here. I love this hotel. It is spotless and the rooms are well equipped, clean and spacious. The breakfast is varied and plentiful. I cannot recommend Ardagh House highly enough. The staff are really lovely and helpful. The hotel is really convenient for the city. The LUAS(tram) is a short walk away... More
