This place was far too expensive for what was on offer. Although it was clean, the TV didn't work and the room was too pokey for a family. Too far out of town, very basic accommodation, shared bathroom. It was sold to me as a B&B yet on arrival we were told there was no breakfast! There are places in the heart of Dublin that offer you much more for your Euro.

Looks good from the outside but that's where it ends. Top attic room, shower was no more than a good dribble and went from warm to really hot in a cycle....taps on sink spun around when turned on/off...the sink was so small it was impossible to fill the kettle so had to decant using a cup from tap to the kettle..The long fanlight window was strongly sprung so i had to climb onto the window sill to pull window closed and the handles were loose...There were lots of stains on the carpet and the decor was generally shabby. The TV was angled down towards the floor and the remote control was so sticky and greasy I had to disinfect it with several wetwipes. However, on the 1 plus the bed was comfortable and the bedding clean. Poor customer service on arrival, booking couldn't be found, and then just pointed up to my room and told to leave the key in the room when I left in the morning.. Sorry very poor and not worth the money...

Adequate and basic- no breakfast so why name B and B ?(misleading) Premise was clean and tidy but impersonal, lacking any decor- Absolutely overpriced for what you got- Someone is milking this premise !!

This was a nice reprieve from the hassle of big name hotels. The rooms were tastefully decorated, with charm and inviting personalities. It was centrally located and the host was very accommodating. I was centrally located and offers access to a number of sights...

A B&B without breakfast, quite disapointed. The house is on a very busy road and the room is noisy when the window is open. The room is small (quite clean though), no computer desk or chairs. However, a toaster and a fridge are available in the common room.

The hotel is beautiful. We had lunch in the Iveagh Bar. The food was good. Service could have been better. We had 3 different wait staff. Seemed like they weren’t sure who’s table we were at. We also had lunch in the Chesterfield Restaurant. It was kind of confusing as it’s like a cafeteria food choices but service at the table too. Food choices good and the food was excellent! The main level is air conditioned but rooms are not. Most of the time this wouldn’t matter but we were there during a heat wave and it was hot! Thankfully there was a fan. The room was very clean. Sufficient towels. Free bottled water daily was very much appreciated. Also a tea pot with either coffee or tea. Says centrally locates. However, we walked over 20-30 minutes or more to get anywhere we wanted to tour. The tram is right outside and there also the on and off bus as well as taxis. We preferred to walk. Overall a very nice hotel in a very quiet neighborhood. I would recommend this for your stay in Dublin!

Whilst the room was small it was clean and quite adequate, however my booking was for a b&b (bed & breakfast) whilst I did not have breakfast on my booking I wrongly assumed that breakfast would be available for an extra charge. Until I arrived and saw a sighn saying We Do Not Do Breakfast. So in my opinion it should not be called a b&b it should simply be call ed bed, and that is all I got the tv was very old and did not work, was unable to find snyone to let them know, the backnof the remote controll was missing exposing two very old leaking batteries

Where do I begin?!? Stayed here for two nights in a small single room. Bed seemed clean and well as bathroom. Room was covered in cobwebs and found a lovely (yuck) large black spider crawling on me one night when I using my phone in the dark! Cups and glasses were dirty with dust in them. Would not use them at all. Room was cold until the hearing came on and the provided electric heater shuts on and off after a few minutes. NO BREAKFAST!! Plenty of other b n bs next door and a short distance away to stay in. Bathroom was tiny!! Could barely turn around. Only saw staff on check in when I needed to pay up front and didn’t see them since. You leave your key on the desk when checking out. Would absolutely not stay here again. Walls are paper thin, windows thin so you hear traffic noise. Towels clean though with a mint on arrival. Nice touch but that’s all that was nice. Very over priced! Never again.

I was a solo business traveller on this occasion. The room I was given was a disgrace. The proprietor should be embarrassed to rent out this room. When I arrived, the proprietor helped me with my luggage to my room. He opened the door and scuttled off very quickly... perhaps he actually was embarrassed. That was the last I saw if him. I paid over 300 euros for 3 nights here. This 'en-suite' room was a single room containing a single bed with a toilet at the end of it, a shower in the corner, a sink, a very tired beside table and a tv with very limited channels. The light shade was disgustingly dirty to the point where rubbing my finger across disturbed what was clearly months of dirt. The bed seemed clean and the rest of the room seemed average.

I had booked for a weekend stay at the Ashling house. We were greeted at the door by the owner who showed us to our room at the top of the house. I was pleasantly surprised. It was spotlessly clean. Beautiful white sheets and cosy duvets. Plenty of towels. Tea and coffee and a kettle are provided and I was pleased to find a hairdryer. An extra touch were the chocolate mints. Angling House is in an excellent location, just around the corner from Croke Park and a short bus or taxi ride from the city centre. Despite being on a main road there was a parking spot provided and the room was quiet. Lots of reasonably priced cafes for breakfast just down the road. Plenty of local pubs close by. All in all a great stay. Best nights sleep I've had in a long time. I'd definitely return.
