Nice little B&B right in the middle of Temple Bar, where all the action is. And virtually all other attractions on walking distance. Rooms (only 4) are very spacious (over 50 sqm) and beautifully decorated. Our suite had a (small) queen size and a single bed. Not really fit for three, but very good for two. Personally, I would have preferred a large king size bed, but thats personal.
Two negatives; they didnt change towells during our three-night stay, and the bathroom fan makes a lot of noise. As this fan is switched with the bathroom light, you cant leave the light on without constant noise. Peanuts.
Breakfast is in a cafe just around the corner (8 am to 8 pm, and you can order as you like).
I read some remarks on the water pressure, but to me this wasnt disturbing. Also street noise nor stair case noise wast bothering at all.
On the day we left, we could store our luggage during the day. As these is no reception, you have to call to get your things back, and after calling it took only a few minutes before someone arrived. Perfect.
One could say that an average € 150 per night is a lot of money, but for a room this size right in the heart of a European capital, I would say its a bargain. If I would ever visit Dublin again, I would definitely consider staying here again.
