Nice spacious room with excellent facilities! Only a 10 min walk to occonnell street and 15 mins to temple bar area. Staff friendly enough and clean towels daily. However our room was right next to the breakfast area and was very noisy in the morning with chatter and plates being cleared in the kitchen.

This single room was the worst, most expensive room I've ever stayed in. The bed wasn't a proper bed. Just a piece of board on some sort of base covered in a really shoddy piece of flooring. There wasn't a wardrobe or drawers to put clothes in just a rack on the wall with some hangers. The wash basin was...

We stayed here for 2 nights. Good access to O'Connell Street. About 15-20 minute walk to Grafton Street and Temple Bar. Quiet and comfortable with a good standard buffet breakfast. Staff helpful. Bathroom in our 3 bedroom apartment was tiny and in need of an update. Bedrooms very small but beds comfortable. Would recommend as good value and suitable for...

Travelling with children is not so easy so we booked an appartment at Clifden since they offer 2 bedrooms. The apartment itself is not so bad. It was quite spacious and clean but there were 2 major issues: the master bedroom bed and the noise. Our mattress was in a terrible state, we could feel each spring and I barely...

Central appartments, clean and functional with good private bedrooms. We we're welcomed to st. patricks weekend with a nice gift bag with snacks, guiness, and two bottles of wine, very nice gesture. The appartment was clean with plenty of space, wifi and tv, and full kitchen, and the service in the 24 hour reception was great.

We booked a room at the Clifden Guesthouse and Apartments for a 1 night stay. Being University students we were looking for a good quality hotel for a small budget - and this hotel did not disappoint! The location is just outside the main areas of Dublin (5 minute walk) and is quiet at night, with no traffic or outside...

Great location only 5 minutes walk to city centre.Extremely friendly staff. Rooms small but clean we didn't have breakfast though it smelt delicious. Car park charge of ten euro per night though the website states free parking. Definitely would stay again.
