“Charming Owner and Establishment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2012

It was quiet, clean, and eco-conscious. Even though the shower water pressure was relatively low, the water got quite hot. The best part was Terry, the owner. We found him very charming - especially when taking our breakfast orders. He paid close attention to details, and he did everything to make our stay comfortable and memorable. He went far and beyond what anyone would expect. We will be forever grateful to him for his generous hospitality. The breakfasts were wonderful - the most enjoyable out of the 3 bed & breakfasts we stayed at during our journey. The location is just outside of the city centre, so it was perfect for staying close to the action, but away from the noise. The toilet in our bathroom was unreliable. We had to ask to have it fixed once a day. Also, the toiletries provided were sparse. However, we didn't find it a significant inconvenience. If we ever have the chance to go back to Donnybrook Hall, we will!

Room Tip: We were in room number 6. It is on the top floor, with the window overlooking the courtyard. We hear...

On a recent visit to Dublin I stayed at Donnybrook Hall Guest House.
What a lovely warm welcome I received from a very courteous young man. The first time I have ever been greeted with the welcomed words on arrival ---- 'would you like a cup of tea?' music to my ears after a long delay at the airport. Thank you Anthony.

What a great find! Jerry and Anthony treated us like old friends when we stayed at Donnybrook Hall for the first time. They offer much more than a roof over the head; you are urged to eat a huge and varied breakfast, and, when we left at 6.00am, there was juice and a muffin waiting for us, since we had turned down the offer of sandwiches for our trip. Jerry gave us loads of information about what to do, where to go, etc. Just around the corner is O'Connells, one of the best places I've eaten in Dublin, or beyond for that matter. And the Donnybrook Fair supermarket, also a stone's throw away, is wonderful and also has a great restaurant upstairs. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 3, looking out on to a very quiet road. Two large beds. Very comfortable

The owner, Terry, and his staff are highly helpful and informative. They are always ready to help you if any question or concern about your trip in Dublin. This accommodation is located in a little bit outside of the city's core, which means it is far from city noise and very calm at night but I must add that the neighborhood is just amazingly lovely. There is a nice restaurant and some shops for buying snacks or liquor just nearby. Still, it is very easy to access to the city central, maybe 10 to 15 minutes ride to O'Connell street, if take bus. Breakfast is great and I think they can customize your breakfast if you want. Actually they added unique flavor to each one of our breakfasts when we were staying there for 4 nights. Given all those I have experienced, I can highly recommend this hotel.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Donnybrook Hall Bed & Breakfast in Dublin and it was lovely. The rooms are really nice, the location is good, breakfast fantastic (from eggs benedict to their own fresh fruit and home-made yoghurt) and the staff are the best asset! I would have no hesitation in recommending Donnybrook Hall. Thanks for a wonderful stay.
