I am attaching pictures to this review - taken this morning 29.09.13 I stayed here with friends last night and still feel sick when I think of the place - it is filthy dirty, completely overpriced (would not stay here again if I got if for free), totally unprofessional, old, unacceptable standards in this day and age etc. etc. .......

I stayed here for one night with my fiance, in a double ensuite room, and it fitted the bill perfectly for what we needed it for - a place to keep our stuff while we went out, off-road parking, close to the centre of dublin, a stone's throw from the bus stops to get into the city centre, with a...

We stayed here because one of us was attending a conference at the University College of Dublin. We were able to get a good price over the internet, which we felt gave a reasonable value for the accommodations; but when we stayed an extra day we were charged the "regular" rate and did not feel it was worth that price....

We booked 2 rooms for us and our best friends that we were traveling with for one night. When we arrived (3 hours early) the only one there was the cleaning staff. We planned to just leave our car and head in to the city center. The cleaning lady said she would call the manager about our room. Then she...

I stayed here one night as a couple very recently as we were attending a party in the city and needed somewhere cheap and convenient to stay for the night.

For me the most important two features of any B&B is a working shower and a bed comfortable enough to get a good nights sleep. All the rest is largely frills although it would have been nice to have a kettle that could stop boiling over without having to pull the plug and maybe some teabags. The service is impersonal...
