If you want a unique experience, within walking distance to most Dublin attractions then Number 31 is for you. Fabulous gourmet breakfasts, mega-friendly staff, cozy duvets, lovely oversized tubs, and attractive gardens are just part of the attraction. If you are the type who likes to interact with diverse and interesting people then you will return to Number 31 every time you are in Dublin!

We were welcomed at 7:00 am [ a courtesy because of our early arrival on the red-eye from New York] with a warm pot of tea , a hot breakfast and time for a nap. Everything thereafter gave us the sense of being at home. Friendly advice from Anne about where to go and what to see. Even Homer the dog welcomed us. Preferably , ask for a high-ceilinged room in the Georgian wing.
And do not miss the home-made preserves offered at the sumptuous daily Irish breakfast at the family-style tables in the breakfast room.

After an all night plane trip,my husband and I arrived at Number 31 bleary-eyed. We were welcomed with a peat fire ,a steaming pot of tea and warm cranberry bread. This was even before we checked-on ! Needless to say,it was a grand beginning to our 4 day New Year's lark. After walking across the intimate courtyard,Noel(the innkeeper extraordinaire), opened the door to this beautiful Georgian house where our room was located. Fireplace,lovely linens,carved molding, and the best shower in Ireland was awaiting the weary travellers. Number 31 is a very short walk to St. Stephen's Greene,a serene park where the hop-on and hop-off bus lines are located,Grafton Street,Trinity College,Dublin Castle,the Temple Bar area and Christ Church and St. Patrick's Cathedrals.A myriad of restaurants also abound in the area. We especially enjoyed Peploe's on St. Stephen's Greene. Who could ask for anything more ?!? We are both looking forward to returning to Number 31 before year's end . It will be
like coming home !

Number 31 was the perfect place to stay on my recent trip to Dublin. My boyfriend and I were curious when our taxi pulled up in front of a closed gate on a small, dark street after we arrived from the airport. However, we were quickly greeted and welcomed to the hotel. Number 31 is a gem. The hotel is comprised of two townhouses - the main building is the former home of an architect and the townhouse where we stayed was just behind it, on the other side of a charming garden. The main townhouse has a funky but sophisticated late 1960s/early 1970s aesthetic, with a very cool and welcoming sunken living room and fireplace. We were offered coffee and dessert in the sunken living room as soon as we arrived. Our room was beautiful - essentially a room in a mansion - very high ceilings and huge floor-to-ceiling windows; all with beautiful original detailing. The bathroon was basic but very nice.

Morning greeted us with an abundant breakfast in the warm and welcoming dining room and garden (complete with a friendly dog). We had a choice of sitting at one of a few communal tables, either inside or outside in a garden. After our first breakfast at Number 31, we looked forward to breakfast everyday. It was truly heavanly. Among several choices was the Irish breakfast, with perfectly cooked eggs, Irish bacon and sausage, creamy potatos and toast. We also sampled the delicious smoked salmon and scrambled eggs. Number 31 makes a yummy cranberry bread which is also part of your breakfast, along with individual French press coffee or individual pots of tea - absolutely perfect! The company was warm and friendly - you sit with others, B&B style.

I would highly recommend Number 31 if you are looking for a charming inn/B&B experience in Dublin. It has a great location - just a few blocks from St. Stephen's Green, and the hotel staff is friendly and warm. I have stayed in hotels all over the world, and Number 31 was one of the most memorable. We had a terrific experience.

So very gracious, helpful instructions and directions, the BEST breakfast and lodging we had the entire 2 weeks we were in Ireland. Would go tomorrow if I could.
