Make sure to keep a sharp eye out for O'Donoghue's; especially the outside area in the almost too well hidden alleyway. Great Irish stew, service, and of course...the Guinness. And, it's where the Dubliners got their start and used to play. Seriously, how great is that!

My view is on the guesthouse provided by the Bar on the three storeys building which is centrally located within town centre. There are altogether ten rooms of the same price with different set up and size. However, each is equipped with toilet and shower facilities. There is no lobby or other facilities. For meals there are simple, moderate or expensive take away, cafe and restaurants in the immediate vicinity.
With regards to the rooms, they are tidy and in order and the staff are cleaning up the rooms everyday. The heater will automatically turns on in the evening and off in the morning. Bedding is comfortable.
I had five nights in the biggest room with three beds and the room is facing the Main Street. Although at night time the bars and restaurants are quite crowded, I do not feel disturb by noises downstairs.
On the whole I am satisfied with the accommodation.

A great collection of bars and a great pint of Guinness. Staff are friendly. Very busy spot but totally worth the visit.

O'Donoghue's is one of the original homes of Trad Irish music It's a shrine off of St. Stephen's Green, unassuming from the street but with a jewel of a beer garden outside in an alleyway. My bride and I spent a wonderful Sunday afternoon in the beer garden, she playing her Bodhran in an open seisiún and me drinking a pint or two whilst tapping along to the great music. With electric heaters and an awning to protect from the elements, the craic at O'Donoghue's was spot on for an authentic Irish pub experience complete with the friendliness and generosity that the Irish have so cultivated over the centuries. If want the real deal, great atmosphere, toe tapping fun and rubbing elbows with the Irish, head over to O'Donoghue's.
