This is a beautiful property , but it is quite remote and it and the owners have a few quirks. First, to accommodate the 7 of us who wound up Hillwalk Ireland hiking together, this necessitated 2 vehicles being dispatched to pick us up from trail endpoint and the husband's involved an OLD van that had no rear seats, had...

I had to be in Ireland for 6 weeks and stayed in the Blackstone House the entire time. It is a "B&B" for "bed and bathroom" - definitely no breakfast here. In general, the area is quiet while the room and the bathroom were clean. If all you need is literally a room and bathroom, then it is adequate. But...

- Special Room only - weekly rate- is self catering which you are told at the beginning of your stay. I stayed 3 months and was very happy. It was recommended to me by a I T company who have had several employees stay her while looking for permanent accommodation.

Where else can you have valet parking in a securely locked compound, a full Irish breakfast including two succulent sausages the length and thickness of a Montblanc Meisterstueck fountain pen, rooms that include period and plush four-poster beds and - to complement - a complimentary selection of mobile phone cords for cellular contingencies? Blackstone House, run by William and Kate,...

I went to Blackstone House cause I thought it would be a good b&b. I also read other recommandations and it seemed a very nice b&b. Well it was not... The shower was a nightmare! The whole bathroom was wet once you turned on the shower. I stayed for 11 days, the room has been cleaned ONCE! and that was...

Previously I was paying around 40 euro per night for a small double room, when I found this guest house. For 150 per week, the room was large, old-style nicely decorated, with fridge, tv, small bathroom, wifi included... The manager, William, is easy-going. I stayed for one month until I find my own appartment, but could have stayed more. The...

My friend and I arrived at the Blackstone House on St.Patrick's Day with high expectations due to the reviews that we had read from quite a few former guests. Our expectations were soon dashed. We were met at the door by William who showed us to our room on the first floor. Katie who was in the hall when we...

This B&B is good value for Dublin, though not within walking distance to the city centre, public transport is pretty good and easy to use. I chose to stay here because of free WiFi, which was good. Furnishment is a bit old-fashioned but okay, and breakfast was really grant! Staff was super friendy! What I didn't like was the petit...
