“Felt like a home from home and close to the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2011

From the moment we arrived, the owner Bernie gave us the warmest of Irish welcomes and was full of helpful advice on how to get the most from our weekend stay in Dublin. Our room was spacious, clean and homely, and the friendly chat and banter with Bernie and her husband, made this a very memorable and special stay. This B&B is particularly good value, given it's close proximity to the city, coupled with the excellent local knowledge Bernie can provide. Breakfast too was incredible! We will definitely return!

Very friendly atmosphere, place well looked after. It is not directly in the town centre but there are interesting things to see within 10min. walking distance nevertheless.

We only stayed at this B&B for one night and breakfast, however it was a very pleasant stay, rooms were clean, warm and spacious. Breakfast was great too and the host was very very friendly, helpful and welcoming. We arrived in Dublin late at night and this B&B was very convenient since it is just a few minutes drive from the airport. Would recommend this to anyone going to Dublin!

My friend and I visited the beautiful Botanic View B&B, we spent a few days.
Not only is Botanic View B&B convenient, but it also has the friendliest, most accomodating proprietor I've ever met! She makes hers that hers guests have everything they could possibly need.

The room was clean and all we had a lovely experience at a great price. I would definatley recomend it. Every morning we were offered a hearty irish breakfast before we went on our way to sight see.

When you come to Botanic B&B, you are made to feel at home. You will leave wishing you didn't have to, and already be thinking of coming back! If we ever go back to Dublin this where we will stay.

3 friends and I stayed "under the roof" in the 4-bed-room for a long Dublin weekend. The place is indeed "compact" (especially the bathroom), so be aware and prepared for that. Bernie and PJ, the owners are really friendly, they serve a nice Irish breakfast, give you a lot of info and we got a free car ride to the Guinness brewery. It takes you less than 30 min walking to Temple Bar, and busses are around the corner. Also close by are several nice pubs and the "gothic" Glasnevin cemetery. I would stay here again when back in Dublin.

Room Tip: The house is quiet as it is in a residential area.
