“Great little B&b”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

Great little B&B we stayed in room 27 twice during our 2 1/2 week stay in ireland once in the begining for about 3 days and then the last 2 days we were in Ireland, Great price, great room only things i would note is that the channels on the TV are very limited (as seems to be the trend in most hotels in ireland so i dont fault Egans for this, we also werent in ireland to watch tv, was jus something to fall asleep to) The staff is very friendly and helpful with all our inquiries and getting us cabs to go to dublin Centre. Great stay both times would return

Thank you for your lovely review. Sorry about the TV. That one was especially bad for whatever reason. It was recently brought to my attention by another guesr staying in that room and it is now fixed. we only have 8 Tv channels. As you rightly say people do'nt go on holidays to watch TV but it is nice at the end of a tiring day to lie back and relax watching TV.
We do not do "pay per view" etc as we are a small family - oriented hotel.

Kind Regards

Ireland is a garden, Dublin is a gorgeous place smelling of turf peat instead of exhaust gas, and Egans house is a charming and friendly place. My four children and I loved staying here - the lounge with its kids games and coffee machine was fantastic! I strongly recommend it for families!

Thank you for your lovely review, especially in relation to the fact that we try and cater for children of all ages as well as their parents. Young children love playing games and having these simple games in a lounge which is warm and cosy and safe and not a lounge in the usual sense of a pub is very nice.

Kind Regards

Just one world: perfect...
A B&B situated 20 minutes walking to the O'Connel Street.
We arrived very late (and the check-in is 'till 24.00) but the receptionist waited for us!! The room was clean and the staff very helpful..
Thank you again!! :)

Just returned to Liverpool from a lovely 2 night stay at Egans House in Dublin. I booked this B&B through the internet and was told that we didn't have to pay till we arrived or when we departed (whichever was easier for us). Arrived to lovely receptionist who was more than helpful and very polite. We went into our twin room which was very clean and warm with ample space for 2 people. We didn't spend much time in the B&B as we were sight seeing or sleeping but we did ask the receptionist for some help with buses and directions on the sunday morning, she was more than helpful with bus numbers and even drew a little map to help us find the bus stop. We requested a taxi to take us the airport on departure which the receptionist organised for us. Overall we found all staff more than helpful and made our first visit to Dublin an enjoyable experience and I would definately recommend to friends and family. Thank you for all your help and a lovely experience (next time I will book breakfast as it smelt lovely) can't wait to come back x

Room Tip: The B&B is in a quiet area so all rooms are quiet.

When I arrived or checking in the girl on reception was too busy on her mobile phone to even notice i had arrived. My room (23) was extreemly small for the price I had paid and had NO HOT WATER. I complained to reception twice and the girls did nothing to help.

Very dissapointed with this guesthouse and would reccomend anyone to stay away, or demand they get a room the size they pay for!

Room Tip: Avoid being ripped off and demand a larger room, they are the same price!! Avoid Room 23

We are sorry that you had a bad experience.
Our staff are strictly not allowed to use their mobile phones except to text other staff members re rosters etc, if they cannot get them on the landline. The receptionist was most likely doing this or possibly using the "walkabout" wireless phone which they always take with them if they have to leave reception at any time. (We are a small hotel and only have one receptionist on duty at any one time). They will answer this phone if it rings when they are away from reception and then walk back to reception to deal with the call, still using this phone.

In relation to the room it is a little small but is very comfortable and quiet being off a corridor where there are no other rooms. It is beautifully decorated ,all furniture being lovely polished mahogany. For the price you paid on a very busy weekend, namely €37, I would not describe it
as a ripoff.
You are right in saying that the you complained about the water being cold in the shower. You were told to leave it running for a few minutes and to dial zero for reception if you still had a problem. There is no record of any further issues.
Apologies for the problems.

Stayed in this great B&B last week, set in a really quiet part of Dublin, tree lined streets. Room really comfortable, lounge area very nice and cosy. Staff great, park outside the door. 5 minutes walk to get a bus or taxi into town. However, some lovely restaurants and bars within walking distance. Dall'Italiano is a fabulous restaurant 10 minutes walk. The Botanic gardens are 10 minutes walk away.

Thank you very much for your superb review. It is greatly appreciated. This guesthouse is certainly very centrally located just over a mile from the city centre. Most places of interest in Dublin are pretty close by.
You mention the Botanic Gardens which is only 10 mins walk away and well worth a visit by all age groups.
Just as close almost is the very old and historical Glasnevin Cemetery with new museum, restaurant (strange I know to have an eaterie in a cemetery!) and very interesting daily guided tours at just €5.
Dublin zoo is only 3 Km away and makes for a great family day out.
There are as you say many very goog local places to eat and drink and we have special discounts with 3 of them.
Thanks again
