My boyfriend and I spent three nights at Acara House last week. The property is wonderfully located in Drumcondra which is a cute suburb of Dublin and easily accessible to the city center. The room/bathroom was clean and cozy. Liz was a very friendly hostess. We liked staying in Drumcondra vs city center Dublin as it is quieter and not as congested. Would stay here again if in Dublin.

A warm and welcoming home away from home Acara House B&B is our favourite place to stay while in Dublin. Aside from being well situated via public transport between the airport and is close to the city center, making it easy to do and see the things we wanted either by foot or bus, it is located in a lovely and quiet neighbourhood near great places to eat, as close to the Botanical Gardens, Independent Pizza our favourite place to eat and drink. The B&B itself is welcoming and has a warm, homelike feeling. The rooms are nice and well kept, breakfast is always wonderful, with options from a full Irish breakfast to lighter and even veggie options. Liz is a warm, wonderful person, always making us feel at home and quickly comfortable, and has always been a help when we've needed some. We've stayed at Acara House B&B 2 times now, and it is always our first choice when looking for a place to stay in Dublin.

Nicely located in a quiet neighborhood, within a short walk of multiple buses into town (or the airport). Good breakfasts. Rooms and bathrooms small, as people note, but more than adequate for the purpose. Liz is most helpful and on top of everything.
