I've visited Dublin 3 times, and have always stayed at Harvey's. I needed a single room on a very busy weekend 9/6 & 9/7 when I was having trouble finding one, but Robert (one of the family owners of Harvey's), fit me in. Harvey's is old-fashioned in a nice way, comfortable, and very welcoming - you know you're staying with a family. I think they offer excellent value. It's away from the loudness of the Temple Bar area, but only about a 5 minute walk to O'Connell St., and a 10-12 minute walk to the river Liffey.
We had the best experience at Harveys Guest House. I stayed there together with my other 3 girlfriends for 3 nights. We had a family room which was really nice, big and bright. The beds were super comfy. It is easy to find the place. The most I would like to highlight is the nice and warm welcoming by the family who owns the place. Richard and his sister Dorina welcomed me so nicely. We also met their mother which is a very lovely lady. At once I entered the place, they welcomed me, offered a cup of thee. Dorina was super helpful, explained us everything, showed us around and even gave us a lift to the place we had a concert and a party. It’s nothing like a usual guest house where people just come and go. This place is special because it feels like visiting family. I’m convinced that if I or my friends ever come back to Dublin, we will definitely stay at this place again. We had the best time ever in Dublin staying there and all that thanks to Dorina! Thank you and hope we see you again someday soon!
Me and four friends stayed at Harvey’s Guest House as we were visiting Dublin for my birthday! The owner is so lovely and welcoming and really looked after us! We originally booked two rooms but had to change this last minute, the guest house was so accommodating and helpful with this. Location wise, it isn’t far from temple bar and is so cheap compared to other places we looked at in this area. The room was cleaned every day and we even got offered a lie in on the day we were checking out! Overall we had a lovely stay and I would definitely recommend it x
We came here as it was convenient for the ferry from Holyhead. Having a secure parking option was very welcome and the hosts were very friendly. The location is an easy walk to the centre and the price is reasonable by Dublin standards. Beware the steep stairs if you are not fit, and the room we had was a tight fit with our holiday luggage. It would have been nice to have tea and coffee making in the room. We didn't have breakfast as we wanted to get out early sightseeing.
Myself and my boyfriend visited Harvey’s guesthouse towards the end of May for my birthday. We had a lovely warm welcome from Nicholas and his colleague. We arrived a bit earlier then expected and they gladly allowed us to have a bigger room that was ready and available. Room was adequate and exceptionally clean with comfy beds. Nicholas took his time with us and showed us what to visit around Dublin and gave us plenty of recommendations along with a map. I would highly recommend the temple bar strip. There’s an amazing Indian there called Sitar Indian, one of the best Indians I have ever had! Temple bar and Buskers bar is also definitely worth a visit! We had breakfast and lunch at Murray’s bar on O’Connell street which were both amazing. It has a really good atmosphere and beer garden at the back. Their pies are lovely and also they do a traditional Irish stew. Their Irish and full english breakfasts are great and good value for money. If you want to get around on the bus you’ll need to buy a top up card from the local shop or you will need to have exact change.
Had a restful nights sleep and would definitely return if we visit Dublin again!
