Top floor room with double and single beds which meant it was very cramped. Noisy as overlooking main road. There was an ancient TV perched on top of wardrobe! I don't think that counts as TV in room. No make up/room cleaning service either. Only good thing was the breakfast - very good!

Poor value for money, €90, no breakfast prior to leaving due to 8.30-9.30am breakfast time. Horrible 1970 decor, whole place feels mean, tv on top of wardrobe, reception poor. Shower door only opened half way difficult to access taps, didn't see any breakfast room. Advertises free parking but on roadside Won't be back and wouldn't recommend it Especially to tourists

We loved our stay in this cozy B&B! The breakfast was delicious, the owners were amazingly sweet, and we could walk into the heart of town easily! I would definitely recommend this if you're staying in Dublin!

Just back from a 2 night stay at the Marian Guest House. The room was clean with a double bed and small single to make it a twin room. While spacious the room was dated but with an air of character about it. Bathroom was a tad on the small side but it did everything we needed it to. The...

No issues at all with this lovely wee guesthouse. The owner is a lovely charming lady. The room was spacious and clean. The location is in central Dublin. Excellent breakfast. Good sleep, not too much noise within the building. It's a not a 4 or 5 star hotel but it is a high quality guesthouse.

Stayed here my first night in Dublin. Thought I had requested an end suite bathroom, but that was not the case once I arrived. Good news, it was just outside my door. I had a room facing the road, which was just fine with me. You could hear some traffic but it wasn't horrible. Bed was decent, and the decor...

I stayed here for 10 days and loved it. It's a decent location, I walked pretty much everywhere and didn't have a problem. They make a delicious Irish breakfast. I was there as a solo traveler and felt very safe. Would recommend!

Catherine and Brendan are nice people with typical Irish charm. Felt at home as soon I walked through the door. Irish breakfast was fantastic although it didn't do a lot for my ever-expanding waistline. I will certainly book to stay there next time Pete
