“Some good, some bad”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2012

Based on other reviews I think this review would be very different if we were in a different room. My husband and I were in a top floor walk-up (no elevator). The good: breakfast was excellent; good service and food; the staff were friendly, helpful and responsive to any request; the rooms were clean, comfortable and there was plenty of hot water. The bad: 2 of the 5 draws in the dresser kept falling off their track making them unusable; the toilet tank took almost 15 minutes to fill before it could be flushed again; the small bathroom had a light over the shower and toilet and a hole in the ceiling over the sink; the 2 outlets in the room were near the floor so recharging items had to be left on the floor; one day the bed wasn't made. I could go on with other annoying things, and although none of these things alone were terrible together they made the room seem worn and made getting out in the morning frustrating.

Room Tip: The main B&B is at # 70 (we were in #68). I would ask to be in the main house and not on the to...

I really wanted to like this place. I read all the reviews on Trip Advisor and feel I stayed someplace else. First the good features of Kilronan House- Breakfast and Darren. Breakfast was always very nice. You are given a menu, no buffet. Eggs, pancakes salmon, irish soda bread, juices were all very good. Darren at the front desk was extremely nice. The negatives all related to our room. We were given room 7 in building 68. Since it is the top floor it must have been the servants room when constructed. It was very small (even by European standards). The windows were single pane and did not fully close. Drafts and street noise. The dresser draws were a problem closing. When we came back to the room the first night, two kights were not working. They were fixed the next day. On the third night we lost another light. The bathroom was small. There was no toilet pressure. You flushed once and had to wait 5 to 10 minutes to flush a second time. A high hat (ceiling light) was missing so there was a hole in the ceiling. This made the bathroom dark. Our room was not made up on the third day. The bed was not comfortable. Why did we continue to stay here?- Darren said the place was full when we checked in. Would I recomment this place? No I wanted a place that included breakfast but I also needed a palce to sleep. This was not it. Sorry for being so negative. The other rooms must be nicer due to the other positive reviews. Oh, when I went down to the front desk at 11 pm to tell them the beds were never made up, I really should have received an apology.

Room Tip: Do not stay in 68-7

We were only in Ierland for 3 days and were very lucky to find the Kilronan House. We were in a bit of a jam of where to stay but came across the Guesthouse and immediately the staff was welcoming and understanding to our dilemma. Our room was very clean with all the toiletries neatly provided. The room was well lit and nicely decorated as if we were staying in a local Irish home. There was a shower and sink in the room, but the toilet was down the hall, but we didn't mind at all. Our favorite part of staying at the Kilronan House was the excellent breakfast they provided in the morning. It was so nice to wake up every morning and go to the beautiful dinning room and have a full Irish breakfast. Again the staff showed hospitality and caring about us staying there. It was nice that the staff tried to know us on a more personal level asking us where we were from, what we planned on doing in Ireland, what places to see, etc. They made us feel very welcomed to the guesthouse and welcomed in a country we have come to for the first time. The house is in a great location. Harcourt St. is just around the corner and becomes very lively at night. St. Stephens Green and Grafton street is also just a short walk away. We absolutely loved our stay in Ierland and we give much of the credit to the caring staff at the Kilronan House. We would highly recommend this guesthouse to anyone thinking about visiting Dublin. We will certainly make a return there in the future.

We stayed in this B&B last March (2011). It was a wonderful experience. The staff volunteered to watch our luggage until our check-in time. They arranged a taxi for us to the airport and made wonderful recommendations for dinner, even making the reservations for us. The room was exactly what we expected and I did so much research prior to going. It was definitely a bargain and a cute hotel. What we traded for location was well worth it. In fact, we are going back to Dublin in August and have skipped doing research this time and booked a room automatically with them for our stay in Dublin.

Room Tip: They have a standard room that's not en suite. It's worth doing it for the cheaper room. You...
