We found we needed to stay an extra unplanned day in Dublin on a recent trip, as the B&B we were in could not accommodate us for that night. Some quick work and some generous help by other B&B owners led us to Griffith House, and we could not have selected better ourselves. Charm everywhere in this place, great folks...

we were in chalet. Good size and clean, bed very comfortable. En suite very small and could do with decorating, biscuits on hospitality tray would be nice . Breakfast good but very little staff interaction.Good base for Dublin city centre.

We travelled to Dublin last month and the temperature was unseasonably cold. Our room at Griffith house was freezing! I slept with 5 blankets and woolen socks but was still cold. The radiators were turned off after midnight. Aside from the cold, I have no other complaints. The rooms were clean and comfortable. You can easily catch the bus to...

The room was adequate although the 'ensuite' was obviously and afterthought and more like a broom cupboard - nowhere to hang towels or put a bar of soap even. Walls were paper-thin, so if you're a light sleeper I'd recommend ear plugs or sleeping pills! The owner was not exactly rude but definitely not up for a chat! It felt...

Griffith house - we chose this because our travel agent personally stayed there and recommended it and it had good reviews online but we were sadly disappointed because there was no Irish welcome here.  The good was they let us drop our bags early.  He seemed rushed to get us out.  Said go down street two blocks for bus and...

Stayed at this B&B with my three teenage boys. It is conveniently situated beside the city centre, which the boys loved for the nightlife. The daughters of the propieter recommended various pubs and nightclubs for them, and were very helpful in general. Eugene was very welcoming, and gave us a wide choice for breakfast. The house was spotless, and the...

We booked this B&B for a few reasons: Price was reasonable and only ten minutes to city center by taxi. The room had tea and coffee making facilities, flat screen tv and a very comfortable bed. A slight criticism is the room was alittle small and little natural light. The breakfast was good, we were asked if wanted extra toast,...

I've waited 4 months to write this review hoping to calm down. We Stayed 3 Nights, It was an awful experience. The WORST place we stayed in ireland or any where!

“If you are a bigger person, book the room with the large bathroom. On arrival we had a choice of a larger room with a small shower, or a smaller room with a full bathroom....the smaller double room was still big enough but it was great to have a full bathroom.”
