I recently arrived back to Dublin after a business trip to Asia. Now, Asian hotels are gorgeous, as you have probably read on this hallowed service for travellers. Dublin was cold and foreboding but I needed to stay in its centre, so I opted to stay at The Anchor. I had stayed there earlier in the year, following an earlier...

This was a nice B&B. The rates were reasonable and they provided a very nice breakfast. They are centrally located in Dublin with walking distance to all downtown attractions. The staff were very helpful.

Amazing hotel, great location and lovely staff. The bus outside the hotel (which is located in the city center) takes you straight to the airport. The rooms are clean, the staff is polite and helpful and the breakfast is amazing. Quality scrumptious food. We would definitely stay here again.

Anchor House is a great place to stay! Conveniently located, very comfortable beds, great service (Thank you Joan and staff!) and has a full Irish breakfast that is fresh and tasty. We spent four nights in this nice place and left with a feeling of being so well treated starting from booking, mail correspondence, welcoming atmosphere and overall great service....
