Stayed here at the beginning and end of our trip. Missed breakfast both times because of our early departure out of the city, so can't comment on it. Check-in was easy, and they let us leave our bags in the lobby area so we could explore the city since we arrived before our room was ready. The rooms were very...

Assuming the fact that accommodation in Dublin is pretty expensive, Grafton Guesthouse is not the exception. I got a small room but cosy with a nice bathroom. It really worths to stay here as you are basically in the center of action without being in a noisy place. I would recommend to stay here.

The good things: the rooms are clean and nice but smaller than a closet. The bathrooms are also clean but the toilet is almost under the sink and the sink is too low. The bed is OK but it takes all the space in the room. The water get hot but it takes a looooong time to heat. The breakfast...

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. Our Single Rooms all come with a double size bed as we believe that enjoying a double bed even when you are alone is a lot more comfortable than a single bed. Of course the down side is that it takes a lot more space… Thanks for mentioning the cleanliness...

The hotel was renovated currently, so the room was beautiful, clean and very cosy with a woody feeling. From sunday to tuesday, it was the perfect place to stay. It is located perfectly and you can walk to every place from there. But: don't stay here on friday and saturday, choose a hotel not located in temple bar for these...

The room was a reasonable size with a comfortable bed and refurbished and spotless bathroom. It was well cleaned every day and the complimentary tea/coffee etc. replenished. However, there were only three coat hangers in the double room and not a single draw, so there was nowhere for the two of us to put our clothes for a five night...

The guidebook described it as "quirky" and I readily agree. Check in is at a different hotel, parking is at a third location, and breakfast is at a fourth. The rooms are simple, but comfortable and complete. Moreover, the guesthouse is conveniently located in the thick of things. We loved it.

The room was beautiful to look at but they put their money into all the wrong things. We had a room that overlooked a busy outdoor bar, leading to extreme street noise at night. There was only one pane of glass in the very big windows and absolutely no soundproofing. As we lay there it sounded like we were in...

Stay away from this place. Our room overlooked the Hogan Bar and there was very, very loud bar and street noise ALL night long. We couldn't believe that this continued unabated until about 5:00 am. The room had been nicely remodeled, but the windows remained very old single pained class that provided zero sound insulation. Even with earplugs and pillows...

Thank you very much for your feedback. I wish to apologise for the pluming issue that we have had in our guesthouse earlier on during the week. This problem got solved rather promptly but affected your stay with us nonetheless. The area of Dublin we are located in gets quite busy at the weekend especially, with a lot of people...

The Grafton Guesthouse is a good option for staying in central Dublin. Our room was small but clean with a modern and simplistic décor.  We had all the basic necessities in our room. The large windows gave the room a bigger feel and lots of natural light. We were within a walking distance to many good restaurants, cafes, and shops....
