I was looking for something in the City Centre on the Southside, and was horrified by the prices of Dublin accomodation. Kilronan house is 10 minutes walk (up Harcourt Str.) from St. Stephen's Green Shopping Centre and the top of Grafton Str. Just 20m from the door there is a Starbucks and another coffee shop. Just 5-10 minutes up the road the 16 bus takes you directly to and from the airport for just a few Euro (although it does take much much longer than the Airport Express from Westmoreland Str.) In my opinion the best location in Dublin: just by the City Centre but not right in the noise and crowds of Temple Bar.
The rooms do not really have much room around the bed, but that's because the beds are huge. Very comfortable, big comfy pillows, it's as if the bed and bedding just swallows you up and you never want to get up. We had a room with en-suite bathroom which was clean and fine.
Slept very well, and didn't hear too much noise from other guest or the street.
We stayed 4 nights in a room on the 2nd floor which was perfect, and another night on the way back just near the kitchen on the ground floor. It was fine for us, because we got up really early before the kitchen was up and running for breakfast, to catch our flight. But if you are not planning to get up at 7am this room is probably somewhat noisy in the mornings.
Breakfast is very good and plentiful, although not very late (only made it that day we left for the airport). Ends at 10am on weekends.
Staff were very helpful and friendly, bringing our luggage up 2 flights of stairs, offering tea / coffee, helping tourists with ideas of things to do in Dublin etc.
I think the place could do with a little renovation, or a lick of paint, but it is very good accomodation and excellent value compared to other places in Dublin. Very much recommend this guesthouse.
