My Fiance's grandmother and uncle stayed in this hotel and could not have better things to say about this hotel. It is very close to the hospital only a stones throw, the lady that owns the place could not be more friendly and attending to your requests, the rooms were big and very clean and the beds were comfortable, there was a big range of choices for breakfast and the breakfast was lovely, They said that this hotel would be their first choice when returning to dublin and would definately stay here in the future and would recommend to anyone

Have stayed with Ardagh on many occasion and recently stayed once again. Never fails. A truly warm welcome from Mary and all the team. Great location, and so peaceful, make a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of hotels. All guests are so respectful, no banging of doors and shouting. It really is like being a guest in someones home. Rooms are spotless, yes maybe a little dated, and worn but comfort is always guaranteed. Like many other reviewers this truly is a gem of a bed and breakfast but yet it is so much more ................in a world of impersonal you are not just a number in Ardagh...........you are a welcome guest.

Found this B&B on priceline and was not disappointed. Staff was outstanding. Less than ten minute walk from bus stop or a reasonable cab fare to city centre.

Gave us a tip on a pub to visit that was off the beaten path, cheap, and not saturated with tourists. They went way out of their way to accomodate us and make sure we have a nice stay. We took a day tour to Cork and Blarney, rendering us unavailable for breakfast. Ownership made us a breakfast basket and delivered it to us the night before.

If you want a picturesque, Victorian style Irish B&B, this is the place for you.

Can't say enough good things!

Ardagh House is clean, peacful, and quiet. The complimetnary breakfast is HUGE and honestly the best breakfast I had in my entire month in Europe. The owners are very friendly, helpful and dependable. This is a gem amongst bed and breakfasts and is very affordable. Make the rating 10 stars! Ardagh House is out of the city proper, but within short walking distance to the bus stop and the Luas (tram). Within 5-10 minutes you'll be in the heart of Dublin.

Room Tip: All are fabulous!

We stayed here for one night when we needed a place to stay at the last minute. It was surprising quiet and met all our needs. It was lovely to have tea and coffee making facilities, nice clean and spacious room. The breakfast was great and the owners very helpful. Only little niggles were that our room was up three flights of stairs and we had lots of luggage having been travelling for a while (only ourselves to blame) and secondly, we could only get wifi on the ground floor, although there is a lovely couch downstairs to sit on!

Room Tip: The top level floors are very quiet. You wouldn't know there was anyone else around, you just h...

an excellent experience from the moment we arrived (greeted warmly and in a friendly courteous manner) to checking in (simple & straightforward) to being shown our room (large spacious clean tidy and well furnished) to a restful night to a very enjoyable breakfast. The owners and staff were on hand to assist in making the stay smooth and comfortable - An mbeidh bac a chur arís (will stay again)
