My wife and I had the great fortune to stay at Number 31 during two separate visits to Dublin last week. Number 31 is in an excellent location, within walking distance to St Stephen’s Green, Trinity College, and Grafton Street shopping. The B&B is architecturally interesting, blending old Irish/Georgian, with modern furnishings. The rooms were large and comfortable, with excellent beds and linens, and modern bathrooms. But the most outstanding feature of this B&B is the unbelievable friendliness and caring of the hosts, and the employees. The proprietor Noel, welcomed us with a hospitality which we have rarely experienced in our many travels. Although the Irish are amongst the most friendly people we have come across in our worldwide travels, he treated us truly like family. We were in Dublin to visit our daughter, who was studying at Trinity College for the semester. Even though she was not a guest at Number 31, he treated her as if she was not only a guest, but part of his family, asking her to come to breakfast with us each day. The breakfasts are outstanding, with many choices of full Irish breakfast, various permutations of eggs and omelets, frittatas, Irish oatmeal with honey, home baked breads, cereals, all of which were delicious. The food seems to be prepared by a true chef, not just a B&B owner with an interest in cooking. The breakfasts were the best we had in Ireland. Stay at Number 31 for the lovely furnishings, great location, incredible breakfasts- but most of all, stay for the warm welcoming hospitality of Noel, his wife, and their staff.
