Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The location is ideal - the airport coach stops at the end of the road, although I chose to travel by local bus and use my Visitor Leap Card (a great bargain, if you are travelling around Dublin). Buses into the city centre are very frequent, although it's also a pleasant walk and Donnybrook itself is a pleasant area.

The room was comfortable and spotless, looking out over a quiet road. Tina and Terry were friendly and very helpful. They took the Covid requirements seriously, although restrictions have now largely lifted. The only pity was that breakfasts are currently not available because of the pandemic. However, there are tea and coffee making facilities in the room and a Tesco Express 2 minutes away, as well as plenty of cafes nearby.

And the cost of the stay was very reasonable for Dublin. I would come back like a shot and recommend it highly!

I lived for almost 7 years in Dublin so when I decided to visit back the city for a long weekend I knew I wanted to be close to the city centre but also close to Ranelagh (the best hood for me) Donnybrook Hall is like a typical Irish house with all the facilities you need. A variety of bus stops around the corner, even the one who bring you straigh to the airport. The place itself is very clean, quiet, kettle,hairdryer, towels, wifi are provided in the room. They let you keep your suitcase after the check out for the day your travel back. The owner and the lady are very friendly always willing to help you. I highly recommend this place, it has been the best decision I took. Just remember bring your adapter for the plugs!!

My experience at Donnybrook Hall was wonderful!

My double room was more than adequate with an updated private bathroom. Enough hangers in wardrobe for my 8 night stay. Comfy bed, warm room (with the nice option to crack open a window) for my December stay. TV also included music channels, which was nice, Coffee/tea/biscuit/choc croissant in room daily.

The staff was hospitable from checkin to my departure, Encountered a friendly face to ask about needing help every morning and night. Daily housekeeping was reliable and trustworthy. Defiantly a family operation!

The neighborhood is great. There is a row of shops that include an upscale market, a bakery/coffee shop, Tesco, a pub with a restaurant and another restaurant. A fast food place serving really good fish and chips is open late along with another fast food place. There is a bus stop near the hotel, city center is about a 20 min ride by bus. I used taxis (easy pickup area in front of hotel) and safely walked into town many times. A taxi to temple bar was about 15-20 euros, a 50 min walk.

This is a good option for a nice, quiet stay. A great value for the room and resourcefulness of the staff. Would defiantly recommend and revisit Donnybrook Hall!

Tucked away just off the main road to the south side if Dublin lies Donnybrook Hall.

Terry & the staff were wonderful hosts- from organising parking to the fabulous clean rooms, and the wee chocolate treat awaiting your arrival or when you return and the end of the day- it’s the wee things!!

A brilliant area for accessing the city centre, and the major road network around Dublin, Donnybrook Hall is located in a quiet street with eateries, bars and shops close by. There is also a lovely park close by.

Thanks for a lovely stay and see you again

As a solo traveller and It being my first ever visit to Dublin, Terry and Martina at The Donnybrook Guesthouse made me feel very welcome, comfortable, well informed and safe. Their customer service was perfect and they went the extra mile, when the didn't necessarily have to.

If/When I visit Dublin in the future, I know where I'll be staying and that's back at the lovely Donnybrook Guesthouse.

Thank you so much.

Robert.

Extremely well run and friendly hotel in Donnybrook, I was impressed with the location, the room, the welcome greeting and the goodbye chat with the owner.

I was attending an Expo at the RDS and it was a very pleasant 15 minute walk away, through Herbert Park..

On arrival, the young lady sat in the lounge with me, made me a cup of tea and went through the local spots and places to see and to go to eat. I don’t think I have ever had such a friendly greeting !

I spent a pleasant evening in Donnybrook and had a peaceful night’s sleep in my lovely comfortable room (see video).

In the morning as I was leaving, Terry the owner asked after my sleep and a nice chat ensued before I strolled to the Aircoach stop a few minutes away.

Great experience

My only regret is that we didn’t stay here longer! The location is perfect, the accommodation is lovely, clean, new, comfortably welcoming... perfect! We had two rooms in the back off of the sun room/ dining room and they were charming. Our host was so nice and we were able to meet her dad the next morning on our way out. The neighborhood is fantastic, there are a few restaurants/pubs and shops within walking distance and a bus if you wish to go to City Center instead of the 15 minute walk. I can’t wait to visit here again, in 2020!!

***UPDATE well we all know what happened in 2020😣 hence we finally made it back in 2023. This time we were able to stay for 3 nights and I’m so glad we did!! We attended events at Energia Park and Aviva Stadium which we both an easy walk from Donnybrook Hall. We walked into City Center, it was maybe 25-30 minute walk. Leaving City Center we took the DART from Tara and Pearse stations to the Landsdowne Rd station which is about a 10-15 minute walk from Donnybrook Hall.
Nothing has changed, still the perfect location and the hospitality is superb. I honestly can’t wait to come back and stay here again!

I've found the prefect and most coziest place to stay in Dublin at last!
I was greeted by the lady of the house, parked up and shown my room then went downstairs for tea and chocolate biscuits and had a little chat.
I have never received such a wonderful welcome.
The room was the coziest room I have been in, spotlessly clean with on-suite bathroom.
Perfect for me as I had had such a long journey.
I went for food in a local pub which was lovely.
The house is in a very good position, nice and quite, which is just what I was looking for.
So it is now my place to stay anytime I need to in Dublin from now on.
Best wishes and many thanks to the owners, I'll be back!

Answer from reh343

I think the best based on cost and convenience is to take the Aircoach bus. You pet on right at the entrance to Terminal 2 and there is a stop about 2 blocks from Donnybrook Hall. I think the fare is 8€ each way and you get get ticket on line.

Answer from Matt P

I would say the best combination of cheapest and easiest is the Aircoach (big, blue bus). If I remember correctly, they run about every fifteen minutes. You can go to their website (add a "ie" extension to the company name) to get their routes. I think the one-way cost was 10 euro.

I think that they do have a hairdryer, but write them a note to double check. At that hour I would take a taxi, as I do not know the schedule of the buses. Good luck and you will enjoy your stay at Donnybrook.
