Applewood B&B
Ranked #44 of 151 Dublin B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 7, 2013

We booked 2 rooms for a 3 night stay in August.
Ann was a very informative host who gave us lots of tips about Dublin and the local Drumcondra area.
Our rooms were clean, comfortable and a good size. The bathroom was also a good size in each of our rooms.
Breakfast had a good selection to choose from and we had a nice sunny view to the backyard from the breakfast room.
The bus to the city is just outside the front door but we chose to drive and park in the city.
Drumcondra shops are a few minutes from Applewood with plenty of convenience stores, pubs & restaurants.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back or side have less road noise

Ann runs an excellent B&B. I felt very comfortable. The rooms are clean, well appointed and very comfortable. The home is as stated by others is on the Dublin city/Dublin airport route. the train station also is not far away. Two or three blocks away is the tesco supermarket, coffee shops, chemist, spars, pubs etc. it is an excellent location.

Room Tip: There is of course no swimming pool or fitness centre. I can't take the highlight off!

Very good B and B . Comfy bed, good shower and delicious breakfast. Very convenient place to stay if youre using public transport. Bus from the airport to Dublin city centre passes the door. Ann the owner was very helpful about getting around and enjoying Dublin. Highly recommended.

Had a lovey overnight stay at Applewood. Booking made over the phone with Ann and as it's not far from the airport, she gave me details of buses we could take. Not far into the city centre, though Ann recommended Fagan's bar to eat, which was near the B & B and very nice & reasonably priced. We booked a double room, but were given a triple room which was nice. TV in the room with tea making facilities and a nice clean bathroom. Full Irish breakfast in the morning was lovely. We would recommend this B&B

I've stayed in 4 other B&B's on the road and I honestly wouldn't stay anywhere else apart from Applewood now. Not only is it warm and welcoming but quite often I have to stay on a weekly basis and it really is a home away from home. It's clean and homely and Ann is always there to make you feel so welcome and looked after.

I first stayed at the Applewood B&B back in 2000, and while it has changed owners it still has all the charm and comfort I remember. We stayed here in April before a tour- and Anne was a wonderful hostess. I wish we had waited to pre-purchase tickets to the bus as we could have saved with her. She took time to orient us well to the house, neighborhood and town. We took some of her food recommendations and were very happy with the local taverns. She also catered to my gluten free diet and we enjoyed having use of the sitting room and patio. The house is older so the rooms and bathrooms are small, but we wanted the comfort of being in a local neighborhood close to transportation and this met all our wishes. When we return to Dublin we'll surely be staying at the Applewood!

Stayed at Applewood House for some six weeks and it was a great experience. Very comfortable,clean,house and wonderful breakfasts choice of menu. Anne is a hostess with the mostess she takes a personal interest in her guests to ensure they have all the information locally and in the city, bus routes,attractions-both times and reservations she can make. Her breakfasts are superb in fact she "insists" that you have more of everything a lovely lady who will forever be a friend. Thi is a fantastic place to stay near the city and convenient to Airport, stadiums, and all of Dublin,s main attractions. Do,nt miss it !!!!!! Bill, Bunratty, Co Clare
