I made a return solo trip to Dublin in early November, 2016, some 50 years since my first visit in 1966 as a seventeen year old and 12 years since I last traveled to Ireland. While I had previously found lodging in the Clontarf and Ballsbridge neighborhoods, I this time chose Botanic View B&B for its north side proximity to...

We stayed for a week and it was a wonderful stay. Bernie and PJ were delightful, friendly and very accommodating. The room was spotless and the location was only a short bus ride from the city centre. We will definitely recommend to anyone staying in Dublin!

I really enjoyed staying with you guys. Bernie and PJ are fantastic hosts with always a joke to tell and useful advice as to where to go and what to do. The B&B is a little away from the city centre, but still in walking distance (ca30min), which was great for us as we never depended on taking cabs while...

We had a fantastic time at the Botanic View B&B. Our room was spacious, clean and cosy, with the city centre in walkable distance (ca 30min). The price we got was more than competitive, particularly considering that the rugby was on. The owners were very friendly and helpful. I would always book a room here again.

A very good B&B not too far from the city centre (can walk, also bus stops nearby). The rooms were bit old fashioned, but the host couple was lovely, warm-hearted and caring about their guests, always willing to help and let u know about events at the moment. AND the breakfast was very good, but u also have a possibility...

Cramped room, broken tv, the ensuite bathroom is just a converted cupboard, stingy breakfast, instead of a glass of orange juice, you get a shot of orange juice, the toast was just bread held over a candle for two seconds. All the products such as shower gel, jam and marmalade were cheap supermarket brands, they didn't even hide the fact...

We just stayed a second time for three nights after a stay a year ago. It's very comfortable, the owners are super nice, and the full Irish breakfast can't be beat. Two notable pubs, the national Botanic Garden, and Glasnevin Cemetery (with its award winning tour) are all around the corner. Buses are handy to the city center, and cabs...

I really loved my stay in Botanic View B & B. Bernie, the owner, is very nice and helpful! The room was very clean, always with hot water, heating and a comfortable bed. I will definitely recommend this place and I'll stay here again in my next visit to Dublin.

Bernie and husband "PJ" are very helpful. The house is nice enough, but not fancy, the breakfast area too crowded, and Botanic View is not in the most convenient location for Dublin City center. But I understand the very high ranking on TA due to the value it represents, and the absolute kindness of the owners. On the day of...
