I loved this place. Friendly staff, comfortable bed, well appointed room and a shower that will really waken you up. Blasted away the cobwebs it did. The staff were friendly, even the night guy who had to let me in at an ungodly hour. If your staying here and your coming on by your own method of transport, be careful....

I had my wedding in this hotel. It was inexpensive for the service we got. The owner/manager looked after our every need. The room was laid out beautifully. Fresh linen sparkling light fittings. It is a small room but holds 60 people comfortably. This ensured a very cosy post meal party. The meal and the service was top class. Every...

The guest house is easy to reach from the airport with bus lines 40 or 16 (Drumcondra station) and from there several bus lines or the train will bring you to the centre. The staff was extremely friendly. When I arrived on a Monday afternoon, the guy from the reception gave me a very nice welcome. I am quite sure...

This is a good hotel. The staff very friendly and helpful. It is decently close to the attractions and the city centre. The beds were comfy but rooms weren't massive not that that bothers me. I would recommend it to anyone visiting for a few days. If i were to visit again i would stay here.

Decent pub-style food here, with nice service. However, the walls are paper thin and we had a dreadful night’s sleep thanks to people arriving back at all hours of the night, not in itself a problem, but when you can actually hear people come up the stairs and hear them talking and laughing (or crying, in one case) in their...
