Eamon, Pauline and Ronan create a truly wonderful at the Ferry House Hotel. Great breakfast, proper pressure on the shower ;-) and personal stories as well as professional service and impeccable hospitality. Much recommended. If you want to stay in B&B, this is the place to be.

We found this lovely B&B in Dun Laoghaire just outside Dublin for our first visit to this country. Pauline and Eamon made us feel welcome, gave us all sorts of suggestions for places to visit both locally and in Dublin. This is an old house, been converted to a B&B with showers

We just returned home from 11 nights at the Ferry House during our holiday in Ireland. This lovely historical home with very high ceilings, very clean and comfortable rooms was perfect for exploring. It is a few easy minutes walk to the DART , the Harbor road promenade, great

Visited here whilst at a sailing Regatta, with six of us using two rooms. Initial welcome was very good and rooms clean and tidy. Breakfasts were decent, without being spectacular, tho set us all up for the day ahead. One note of caution - business was for sale when we stayed,

We started out staying in Dun Laoghaire (outside Dublin) based on a Rick Steves recommendation. Eamon was our host for three nights, and he didn’t miss with food or music! Loved the feel of the Ferry House, and the care and attention we were given. Highly recommend.

I, too, found the owner's son (who was in charge during my visit) very accommodating. Why don't you give them a ring to ask? BTW, I found it a good place to stay. I'll certainly be using it next time I pass through Dun Laoghaire (and might even use it when I have business in Dublin - access to the City Centre by the DART railway line is so easy).

My advice would be to get the 703 AirCoach to / from the airport to Glasthule (St Joseph's Church). Departs Terminal 1 on the hour (Terminal 2 a couple of minutes later), every hour and 4 mins past the hour from Glasthule and takes about 45 mins. You would need to be on the 4.04am coach to the airport for your 6.45 flight. The fare is €8 a single ticket which can be bought on the coach. The coachstop at Glasthule is approx 5/10 mins walk to the B&B. The DART doesn't run to the airport. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ferry House, I had a great stay there recently and would use it again should the need arise. Eamonn and Pauline are great hosts.

I traveled both ways to and from Ferry House much later, but your proposed journey does seem possible, if you look on the Transport for Ireland website.

"I only saw my room on the ground floor so can't comment on the others."
"Family room is located next to a street that does get a bit of traffic; especially busses early in the morning and into late at night."
"they're all good"
"just watch where you park the car make sure you have a ticket on it over active parking wardens."
"Ask to get a room towards the park rather the quite busy road"
