We arrived late afternoon and had to leave by 6 am next morning for our flight Just what we needed. Ashort bus ride into city and even shorter one to airport. Room was comfortable and Mr Maguire was very informative

I stayed with the Maguires for the first two nights of my trip and the very last. Picked from a package operator's listings and for its proximity to a cousin's house in the North Strand, I found the place clean, comfortable, and convenient. I had the smallest room the first two nights; the transom window opened to the fresh air... More

Not all the rooms are actually in the house. Our party was split- half in the house and half in another building behind the house. Those inside were freezing and didn't have any warm water. Room was super cramped as well. Outdside was creepy being lead behind the house. The room was very large with three beds though and had... More

The room was so small. The hot water didn't work. Our friends got taken to the mysterious room in the back of the house. The family didn't interact with us. Breakfast was mediocre at best. The only thing that was nice is that it was right by the airport.

We stayed for three nights while visiting relatives and exploring Dublin. Very happy overall. Good breakfast, clean towels, hot showers, w/ access to wifi and found the location ideal, being in the relaxed suburbs and yet only a hop on the bus or walk to train into the hustle and bustle of the city center. Nice restaurants and eateries in... More

I stayed in Griffith house with a few friends of mine last summer and had a fantastic time.The house itself is a very typical and cosy irish family town house with a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere being provided by the hosts. The bedrooms themselves are kept to a very high standard and are nicely decorated. The beds are also extremely... More

I am handicapped and require first floor or a lift. We reserved the cottage in back requiring no stairs. We reserved two nights, however we were informed we would be moved to upstairs the 2nd night. I assumed we would then be helped with our luggage, as the young lady had told us we would be. Upon encountering the owner... More

We wanted a b&b near Marino college whilst attending a weekend function. Griffith House couldn't have been more convenient. It was clean and comfortable with everything we needed, including free wifi, and a hearty breakfast. Our room was not ensuite but we seemed to be the only ones using the separate bathroom which was just across from our room so... More

“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.”
