Marilyn Mansion is a beautiful old stately house in a quiet upmarket established part of Dublin. The room was beautiful, really comfortable with fresh towels & clean linen at a great price. There's a piano in the hall & a coffee dock, handbasin inside the room & the shower room I found to be bright spacious & ergonomic. Lovely place to get some repose & a feeling of privacy.

I have stayed in this room for seven nights for 498,- EUR. The place is run down, mould in the bathroom, toilets not flushing properly. The place is run down, pictures obviously a fake. The manager repaired the broken light in the room later but did nothing about the mould. Fridge was smelling badly. They are trying to keep the place sort of clean with "housekeeping" but since this place is so run down, it's a joke. If you are looking for a good place to stay, this isn't it.

Recently returned from a stay here and I have to say I really liked it. Was dreading it after reading some derogatory reviews on here but quite honestly these seem unfair. We paid 310 euros in total for two single rooms for four nights which included a generous continental breakfast so it was good value.Yes the place is a bit worn around the edges but the property really is a mansion with original features and well tended gardens,the staff are friendly and kind and the towels and bed linen are spotless and changed frequently.The bathrooms are clean and modern and the beds are comfortable, so I think that this place is a good deal.Basically, if you want a luxurious experience this place probably isn't for you but if you just want a base for when you're not out in the city then this place is right for you.

Stayed here for 2 nights with family. It's a beautiful old house in a residential area. It has a hostel vibe. Staff efficient and unobtrusive, triple room was nice with lovely view of the garden. Bathroom just beside which was clean with decent shower. Nice big old dining room and access to fridge, microwave, tea /coffee 24/7. Loads of books and very warm. The house is a bit shabby, and there are places where it needs new paint, or tidier workmanship. But, it was clean and perfectly functional with a decent breakfast, at a very good price for Dublin. We would happily stay again.

We spent the last 10 days of our 7 week visit to the British Isles at Marilyn Mansion. We would definitely stay there again on a return trip to Dublin. It is located near several bus routes into Dublin City Center: a 5 - 10 min walk to the bus stops and a 15 minute bus ride. There is a comfortable common space for relaxing or working on your computer. There was a strong wifi signal. Tea, coffee and hot cocoa are available 24 hours. There is a refrigerator available for guests to store perishables. The staff were wonderful - friendly, helpful, responsive to all questions and requests. When we had early calls for day trips, they left prepared breakfast plates for us in the refrigerator. The breakfast buffet was well worth the 5 Euros.
