If you like old, creaky, funky, accommodations, this one is for you. After staying at several of Irelands best B&B's, this place was a real disappointment. Thank goodness Dublin is full of fun and we only needed the room to lay our weary heads.
First, the staff, while not rude, were not as friendly as we expected. More like indifferent American service as opposed to the warm and friendly Irish we became accustomed to. Second, the facility was very, very aged. The furniture in the sitting room was very worn out and needed to be replaced. Not very inviting to the point of us not really wanting to sit down. Our room was filled with old, worn out furniture, creaky floor boards and the bed was uncomfortable and small. A double bed for two adults. The bathroom was cramped and I have never seen a shower set up like this one. Finally, don't stay here if you can't walk up numerous steps carrying baggage. The staff helped us with our bags, which was appreciated, but it was still a chore to lug our bags up 10-15 steps to get to the lobby then another set to get to the second floor.
This place was barely acceptable and didn't really dampen our spirits, but it is not a good value.
