Away from the tourist areas that are O'Connell Street and Temple Bar, this is a relatively small B&B on the Quay with possibly a room or two overlooking the Liffey. We had room 23 a small double room with ensuite bathroom. Shower cubicle was small so a bit of a squeeze to get in and out of but there was...

Stayed for two nights. Bed comfortable, lots of hot water and very good breakfast. Staff very pleasant. Budget accommodation in a good location,just across the liffey to temple bar. Would recommend buying the hop on hop off bus.

My favourite budget deal in Dublin. Location could not get better, rooms are cozy and reasonably clean, there's everything you need. The breakfast is nice and cozy. The only disadvantages are that there is no elevator and there is quite a lot of traffic outside, so if you are sensitive to sounds you might want to use ear plugs. It's...

Stayed here for 3 nights with my friend while we explored Dublin. Excellent location with bus stops (public and Hop on Hop off) practically outside the front door. Within walking distance to all the pubs and restaurants across the liffey, and to O'Connell where we met our bus tour to Wicklow and Kilkenny and some excellent shops. Also a little...

Spent two nights here in August 2016. 15 minute walk from where we were dropped off by airport coach. We did arrive very early and although we couldn't have a room they did take our cases off us so we could look around the area unburdened. We returned and it was an easy check in with a very pleasant receptionist....

The exterior may look a little sketch, but our 2 bedroom was wonderfully decorated with windows that looked over the Liffey. Very close to attractions, could be a little loud for some with the road noise as we had to keep the windows open. No air conditioning which is quite common in Ireland. We left too early for breakfast.

Just had a quick overnight stay at this hotel. Important aspect is its cheap and clean. I would actually have given 4 stars but for doors as felt they were not secure as previous reviews have alluded too. Can't comment on food but if you need somewhere to lay your head this is a great value option.

This B&B is situated in central Dublin, close to the major attractions and exactly in front of the river. It is cosy and the staff is friendly. Good breakfast and clean. However, no lift is installed!

I had the apartment on the front side of the Inn which overlooked the river. It was spacious and comfortable. I was traveling alone that day and the apartment was the only room available. It would definitely sleep three to four people. There was a decent kitchen and a washing machine. Plenty of tea and coffee, milk in the fridge,...

We stayed 5 nights in a spacious apartment with good comfortable beds, all kitchen amenities, free coffee and cookies in the room. The bathroom is small but ok. Only the shower needs replacing (no power and quite cold). Do not expect luxury- this is B&B and not a 5* hotel. It is basic with very good central location, right in...
