I cant really add much to the positive reviews so far expressed, what I will say is that any negatives I have read are from people who dont understand Dublin.

Cracks in the walls, electric plugging hanging in silvertape, spiderwebs, old dust on the lamp in the ceiling and a really wobbly matrass. The bath is cleaned several...

Our arrival at Botanic Villa was at 2am from a delayed flight and Ken greeted us warmly. The rooms were sufficient for two people and had enough space to be comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was exceptional, with Ken ensuring we had enough to eat. The hospitality was excellent, Ken was helpful, warm and friendly. I loved my stay in...
