Good location, easy to find when getting off the airport bus. Within walking distance to all major attractions and train station. Clean, comfortable, good in room amenities such as tea, coffee and free bottled water. There is also a TV, but not many channels (although it’s not like we all stay in to watch TV when in another country). Free...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your kind review and score. We really appreciate you sharing this with others here on Tripadvisor. It was great to read all the positive things you had to say about our guesthouse, location and staff. This is what we feel seperates us from other guesthouses in the city centre. As you've pointed out it really...

I booked here and I had not great expectations and it seemed to good to be true (at that price, so close to O Connell Street). The price was low probably beacuse it was low season but my room was excellent and with free amenities you usually don't get in B&B (free water, candies). Location was excellent, staff kind and...

The hotel, or better said guesthouse is quite pleasant and the personal is top. However, there are two things that I disliked here: first, the offer I found was like "wooow, EUR 79 instead of EUR 200!"; a great deal. Second, some of the pictures make you believe your stepping into a modern hotel, whereas it is a ell conserved...

My two friends and I stayed in apartment 3 over the road from the guesthouse. The rooms were very nice and spacious, and we had everything we needed. They supplied a hairdryer, ironing board, toiletries and all kitchen necessities which was very handy, and the beds were very comfy! The only cons of staying here would be the size of...

Okay, four of us arrived at our 2 bed apartment and on checkin we were already disappointed.. The lady behind the counter started asking for proofs of id and card payments from the booking which we has submitted prior to arrival... And after a few awkward mins they found them. Then we were told they have to take £50 per...

Stayed at the Clifden Guesthouse in Dublin. We found the Hotel very tired and desperately in need of a refurbishment. Although after saying that the bed was extremely comfortable and clean. The room was very small to hold three single beds and we had to do a shuffling act to use the bathroom and literally had to climb over beds....

Spent two nights with my wife during a recent business trip, attracted by the favorable ranking, which is in my experience not justified.
