“Wonderful home. Great location.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

This is a very beautiful older home that has been totally refurbished by John and Delia. Our room was in the front part of the second floor and was overlooking the water. The view was beautiful. The location is great because you're not in the hustle and bustle of downtown Dublin, but not that far away, either. It was only about a 15-20 minute drive.
Each morning we awoke to the smell of the food being prepared by Delia. It was delicious and plentiful.
We were able to park our car very near to the B&B on the street in front. You may also park inside the gate of their property, if you wish. Nearby is a pier and bird sanctuary, which made for fun walks with our children. There are also a number of good restaurants within walking distance if you don't want to eat in Dublin.
Both John and Delia are charming people and were gracious hosts.
This was overall a very enjoyable experience, and we would definitely repeat.

This was our first trip to Dublin, we wanted a peaceful location within easy reach of the centre. This is perfect. Fine room, John and Delia are lovely hosts, extremely helpful but not obtrusive, very pleasant dining room and the breakfast was really good and copious. The area is lovely as the Liffey comes down to the sea. Really good walk by the wooden bridge to hidden beach & further on by the sea wall to St Anne's Park. Enjoyed our picnic, by the water right across from the house, bought locally - ask for the good fish & chip shop and there you will find excellent off licence and delicatessen too. Very good bus and rail access to Dublin centre & little towns down the coast, like Howth. If staying for 3 days a bargain is the Dublin bus tour with local bus fares included.

Room Tip: Our room was at the back, it was fine.

The rooms are tired and very basic. Breakfast was poor and very obviously the cheapest they could buy. On the positive the location was good and owner was helpful if not lacking in manners occasionally.

I came all the way from Mexico to attend a design event in Dublin and was so happy to stay at Annagh House! Delia and John are a lovely couple which excels in making you feel right at home Ina foreign country. They were friendly since I arrived, showed me how to arrive to the city centre, take the bus, they even arranged a taxi to pick me up the day of my back to Mexico flight.

I love to practice my English with them, and since Delia studied History it was so nice to have a conversation after having breakfast. Their good taste, culture and kindness shows in everything. I also liked the fact that they have pictures from their daughters and nieces in the dinning room, it gives the " home" feeling as well as the great breakfast.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms with heating during night because April is still cold in ireland

My husband and I spent our last night in Ireland at the Annagh House. The house was lovely and John was very kind. We only spent a few hours sleeping here however since we had an early flight out. John was kind enough to set up a car to pick us up in the morning to take us to the airport. If you have a car, be careful pulling in and out of the drive since cars are usually parked on the street and it can be difficult to see. We had the very top room of the house and the water in the shower did not get warm no matter how long we waited but again that could also be because the hour we were getting ready at.

Had a wonderfully enjoyable stay, what could we add to five star reviews below? Not a lot, perfect in every respect, will hopefully return. Hosted by John and Delia, most friendly welcome in sixty years of traveling.

John and Delia were excellent hosts and very accommodating. The room we stayed in was quite nice, the shower was excellent and the room very quiet as we looked out onto the backyard. The B & B is a short bus ride from Dublin Centre. We purchased a 3 day bus pass and often went into Dublin and back twice a day without a problem. It is also a short walk from Clontarf center where there is a large grocery store. The B & B faces the harbor and is across the road from a jogging path. It is also a short taxi ride from the airpot.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the back are quieter. Rooms facing the water have a better view but may be noisier.
