The location is convenient to both central Dublin sights and the airport with the Airlink bus stopping right in front. Rooms are basic but adequate with the beds being quite hard, pillows flat and hot water and water pressure intermittent. The included breakfast is plentiful and staff very friendly.

My sister and I stayed at this guest house for 1 night. I asked for a room on the lower floors and we were given one on the first floor with a lift, in the new side of the building which is refurbished and looks really good. I would imagine the old part is not exactly the same. Our room...

Starting off with the bad, this hotel unfortunately does not have an elevator so we had to carry our bags to the top floor up flights of stairs. The staff at the hotel did offer to assist us with our heavier luggage but it was still quite the climb. Also the pressure in the shower was awful which was a...

Great location, with a bus stop to the airport right outside you can take the 747 bus for €10 return which makes the transfer from the airport to the hotel very easy. Very friendly staff all welcoming and helpful, room is quite basic however we spent most of our time exploring the city therefore only slept and showered there so...

An excellent place to stay. It is right next to the bus stop that comes from the airport €10 for a return. It takes about 10 minutes to walk in to the centre of Dublin from here. You get free breakfast, well at least we did. It was very nice! The wifi in the guesthouse is very good too. The...

Don't get too excited about the rating of this hotel. Most good reviews only point out the good location. Indeed, that's the only positive thing about it. It's close to the city centre and main attractions (It's worth mentioning there are plenty of other B&Bs in the area) HOWEVER, it's certainly not worth the price you pay!! We stayed for...

Our room was tiny and had no proper storage for clothes. No drawers or cupboards (no room!) and just a short hanging rail with three coat hangers. Bed was lumpy and uncomfortable. Breakfast wasn't bad, but the service left a lot to be desired. View from our room was a brick wall and a grotty awning over a doorway. We...

Sorry bout that.

For the price point, location, and that we only slept/showered in the room, it was great for our needs. It's not a new shiny property, and not someplace I'd want to hang out all day (small quarters, dull lighting, tiny tv, no amenities it seemed). But the rooms are clean, we had wifi, breakfast, it's walking distance to O'Connell St,...
