Guest House Review

The staff was very helpful with anything we asked of them. Location was right on bus lines including airport and 10 minute walk to see the Book of Kells at Trinity College. Breakfast was ordinary. Room needed some work. Mattress was old and lumpy.

Central location but don't waste your money!

The staff were very rude and unwelcoming, we were told to climb up the stairs with our bags to our room which was near the top of the hotel to the fourth floor. The bed was a very small double which was very uncomfortable. The room felt unclean and damp. The shower was very small and was located in the bedroom, no separate bathroom. There was black mould on the ceiling and the ceiling had peeling wallpaper. The power point did not work properly, when it did, it made an unnerving continous crackling sound. Staff were too unapproachable to discuss anything with. We would never book with them again as they had an uncaring approach to their bed and breakfast and the comfort of their guests.

Needs a lot of work

I arrived early and was told I could leave my backpack but there was nowhere secure to leave it - so I didn't. The room was adequate but the bed was ordinary and the springs sounded every time I moved. Thank god I had lost weight. Breakfast staff were lovely but breakfast was nothing special. Of note, I said something about the exit door on the fourth floor being open and was informed that a workman was outside at 4pm in the afternoon. Funnily enough it was still open at 4am in the morning when I went for my loo break. I would not stay there again and only did this time as it was an emergency. There are so many other places that are much nicer.

Central, cheap and classic

It was thought that this trip for two was going to be an explore the city trip. Four days, and we needed a place to stay that weren't too expensive and was not far from the center of Dublin. This was exactly what we where looking for - not too fancy, just a perfectly ordinary, average place to stay the night over when we weren't exploring the city. The rooms aren't too big, and with only more space to a sink, a shower and a shelf, it's sure are going to be a bit messy, but as I said, on this trip we only needed a place to sleep and keep our things, and this is just perfect for these small requirements. This was the first trip we ever made as a couple, though me myself have been traveling a lot over the last years, and would consider this as an average, just okay place to stay the nights over.
