“Just like Home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

My Daughter and I stayed at St Martha's and what a Great experience. I've stayed at over 40 B&B's in my last two years living in Europe and another 100+ around the world and this is by far the friendliest and most accommodating stay I've ever had. Una is a wonderful host and gave us a list of recommendations in Dublin and several locations outside Dublin on the Dart (Bray and Howth were beautiful) We spent the first day in the city and riding the Hop On and Hop Off buss and that is a great deal. However, getting outside the city on the city line and DART (15,00 Euro for an all day family pass) is a splendid deal.

Like many of the TripAdvisor travelers, I found Una's special home and selected this location because of the High reviews. Everything was spot on, easy access to the bus, train etc. Lots of wonderful restaurants. the weather was wonderful and my daughter and I walked down to O'Connel Street and it only took 25 minutes. I look forward to another stay in Sept and others in the future. I hope anyone going to Dublin will get the chance to stay here and book early ~ very popular and now I know why. Thanks Una ~ Cheers Greg

Room Tip: I stayed in room #5 with a nice view and two beds.bath/shower.

We were very pleased to be able to drive in a short time to this B&B from the airport after a long flight. We had a vvery pleasant stay in a beautiful setting. Una went out of her way to assist us I'm many ways as we began out trip to Ireland. One of the best in the two weeks we spent here.

We stayed at Saint Martha's for two nights as part of a city break to see a rugby match at the Aviva Stadium, and it was a great experience! Una gave us a wonderful warm welcome and made sure that we had everything we needed. The cooked breakfast was fantastic and definitely set us up for a day out sightseeing! The price was also very cheap compared to other places I'd seen in Dublin. It is a bit of a walk from the city centre (20 minutes) but it was nice to walk off our massive breakfast! It's also on the bus route from the airport and, being on a quiet residential street, staying at Saint Martha's gave us the feeling of seeing part of the 'real' Dublin. Highly recommended for a bargain break in Dublin!

My Husband and I stayed here for a few nights at the beginning of January. I had stayed here many years ago with my Brother who has also stayed here many times before and had some lovely memories hence there was no hesitation in returning. Una once again made us feel at home and gave us some great recommendations on buses, places to go and things to see. She made us feel very welcome, and it was sad to leave! The bed was very comfortable and the breakfast just as I had remembered, very yummy indeed!

We would thoroughly recommend a stay here. It is in a great location for the Airport and for sightseeing, with buses running regularly to and from the City Centre (or a 20 min walk away). You will be sure to be made very welcome. We are already looking forward to our return and to staying with Una once again!

Wonderful traditional Irish breakfast delighted my day in Dublin. Also, Una's warm welcome and hospitality made me feel relax. The location is perfect for bus travelers to commute to and from city center.
The room is a clean and comfortable but the shower machine is loud and old. The cups and kettle in the room had dust on it, and this probably the only disadvantages in the room.

This is the second time we have stayed with Una, and we all agree that should we return to Dublin we would go back to Saint Martha's. Una is warm and fun to be around. She offers of where to eat on days the pubs are jammed packed after a hurling match. The transportation is great, and the neighborhood, quiet and pretty.

Saint Martha's B&B is our favorite place to stay while in Dublin. Aside from being well situated via public transport between the airport and is close to the city center, making it easy to do and see the things we wanted either by foot or bus, it is located in a lovely and quiet neighborhood near great places to eat, as close to the Botanical Gardens as well.

The B&B itself is welcoming and has a warm, homelike feeling. The rooms are nice and well kept, breakfast is always wonderful, with options from a full Irish breakfast to lighter and even veggie options. Una is a warm, wonderful person, always making us feel at home and quickly comfortable, and has always been a help when we've needed some.

We've stayed at Saint Martha's B&B 3 times now, and it is always our first choice when looking for a place to stay in Dublin.
