“I felt really looked after!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2011

Thank you to Terry and Anthony at Donnybrook Hall for looking after me so well. They couldn't have been more helpful. I was travelling alone and really appreciated their care. The B&B is spotlessly clean and the rooms are comfortable. The breakfasts are amazing too. They don’t get great water pressure in the area so don’t expect a powerful shower though!

We stayed at Donnybrook Hall in Sep/Oct 2011 - What a great spotless B&B! We had our own separate entry off the garden. Thanks to Terry and Precious we could highly recommend - the breakfast menu alone was mind blowing! Close to bus stop for Dublin city and walk to pubs for dinner!

I stayed here for a few nights a while ago and found it a great place to stay. I was made very welcome by the owners. I have a good sized room with double bed. Room had an ensuite and wireless internet. The cooked breakfast was excellent. The B&B is located in a pretty good location, with a bus stop nearby for the short trip into Dublin city. I would stay here again for sure.

Stayed with terry and his staff for St. Patricks day this year. Amazing is really all we can say. I went with my girlfriend and another couple and we all loved it. Terry was an awesome host and gave us a tremendous amount of help as this was our first time in Ireland, but definitely not our last and I will stay here again if possible.

My husband and I stayed for one night in this lovely house. We were made to feel most welcome and the location is very close to Ballsbridge and city centre as well as being right in the centre of Donnybrook. The price of the room with breakfast was €55, which in this area is extremely good value. There is a parking area for guests but it was full when we arrived. However if you intend to leave your car on the road before 6.30 pm and after 8am they will provide you with a parking disc. The rooms was standard size with tea and coffee provided. The bathroom was small but had all the necessary items. We unfortunately had to leave before breakfast so can not give you any feedback on it, however they were most upset that we did not have time to partake of their lovely spread and we would love to go back to try it. The room was quiet despite facing the road but the traffic does calm down in the evenings in that area. All in all a very pleasant experience and I would use it again.

After a flight cancellation coming from Minnesota and an additional 12 hours of traveling and then lost luggage, our first night in Dublin was a stay at Donnybrook Hall. They were so friendly and accomidating to us. We had no toiletries and only the clothes on our backs and they offered good suggestions for us for needed supplies and even let us use their personal laptop to contact the airlines etc. They have a coupon they give out for a discount at the local restaurant and I wouldn't recommend going there. Our waitperson was rude to us the entire meal and I didn't think the food was anything special for their prices. The breakfast at Donnybrook was very good and the owners were extremely friendly and very helpful in suggestions for things to see in Dublin. It's also EXTREMELY easy to hop on the direct bus into Dublin just up the street from the B&B. Leave your rental car at the B&B and take the 10-15 minute bus ride into Dublin.

In early September we've stayed for 3 days at Donnybrook Hall it was a very pleasant stay with a lot of attention of Terry, a warm welcome and much info about Dublin, perfect breakfast good accommodation, walking distance to centre is about 25 min so a plaesant evening night walk home after an perfect day in Dublin.

We will come again
