Irish hospitality at it's best!!! You will not find a sweeter woman than Sandra. She truly has her guests's comfort and enjoyment at heart. My room was small but very cozy and clean. Quite comfortable bed! The Irish breakfast was delicious! If you don't want eggs and sausages, cereal, toast and yoghurt are also available. Very well located. A nice... More

Room was tiny, bathroom even smaller. Moved the stained chair in the room and the back fell off. Sat on the toilet and the seat came off!! Sheets were clean but... More

While the room was on the small side, it was nice and clean. Our breakfasts were great and we could walk easily to City Centre. But, the best thing about our stay were our wonderful hosts! They were very helpful, fun to chat with and very accommodating. The airline lost our big bag and Sandra went above and beyond helping... More

Very friendly owners, always making effort to chat with guests. Rooms bit cramped, but clean Very busy road. Good for city centre. Shopping centre near by and on main bus route into city centre. Good breakfast. Plenty of choice.

We just finished a 2 week trip to Ireland and Scotland staying at accommodations based on TripAdvisor reviews. This b&b was the only one that disappointed us. We even thought we had the wrong b&b and went back to see why we booked this place. Cons: We were met at the door by a disheveled man who did not even... More

We had a great 3 night stay here two weeks ago. Very reasonably priced. Buses go into Dublin Centre from outside the house. The room was very clean and comfy, we both slept really well.

We had our accommodation in Botanic Villa for 5 nights on our honeymoon. The hosts were very kind and helpful, the room was clean and cozy. They served full Irish breakfast for us every morning which was very tasty. We would return there if visited Dublin again and highly recommend it for travellers.
