Spent a few days with my wife at Adare recently and we really liked the place: It was nice & clean, the king size bed was very comfortable, and we slept well. Patrick and Catherine were very knowledgeable on local places to eat (several places offer 'early bird' 3 courses for around 20 euro). The tea making facilities (normally in a guests room in most b&bs) were in the breakfast room which meant that there was always daily fresh milk available for this. Breakfast was from 7:30 to 9:00 with most tastes catered for.
If you stay at Adare and need an Umbrella, Catherine will probably lend you their large golfing umbrella: I'm sure it doesn't rain too much in Dublin but we stayed during the recent (and possibly infamous) 'Dublin flood' on the 24th October and the umbrella was much appreciated; the rain however did not affect our enjoyment of the break. Herbert Park, just around the corner from Adare was nice to walk around & has a large lake.
The location of Adare has very good access to buses (we used the 46A most) and the DART train (at Landsdowne road): The DART was good value as we got two returns to Howth for only around 8.60 euro. If we are ever in Dublin again we'd definitely consider returning to Adare.
