Me and my friend really enjoyed the area of Castleknock. It's beautiful, clean and peaceful, and still the connections to the city center are good (the bus stop is just outside the hotel). The B&B is also located just a few minutes from the Phoenix Park gate, and if you're patient it's possible to stroll through the the park to the city center (about 5 km or so). What we didn't enjoy quite as much was that the staff was a bit difficult to get in touch with during our visit. "24 hour reception" seems to mean "You can reach us if we're home and around", since the owner family also live in the building. However, when we DID get in touch with the staff they were helpful. The room was ok, just a bit noisy in the night because of the old floor making a squeaking sound.Overall, the B&B was priceworthy and it's actually nice to experience more than the city center of Dublin.
PS. Note that several maps show the wrong location of the hotel, just ask the taxi to take you to the Phoenix Park gate in Castleknock.
