Location is great and rooms in the lower level are absolutely quiet. Free parking in the back makes it easy. Just a 20 minutes walk to city centre (Ha'Penny Bridge). Even though we had to leave 2 hours before regular breakfast hours, we received everything as usual guests.

Me and my boyfriend booked it for one night but we felt so comfortable in this B&B that we stayed for another night. I am cleaning obsessed and I was really impressed with this B&B. Even though the house is big every inch of it is sparkling! LOCATION: perfect, in the center of the city but doesn't feel too busy...

We booked this B&B for ourselves then added our friends to the booking. The owners were wonderful to work with in changing our schedule. Upon arrival they welcomed us and made us feel right at home. Our rooms were clean, comfortable, quiet and the perfect place to stay for a week in Dublin. Perhaps because it was January and they...

Great location in Dublin. Easy walk downtown to shops, restaurants and bars. Lovely people, delicious breakfast - clean and comfortable rooms. Very helpful with tips on how to get around. Nice living room, but only available to guests at breakfast time.

We stayed for just a night and it was great. The hosts were so welcoming, helpful, and accommodating with our travel schedule! A bit of a walk into the city center, but well worth it for the quiet streets for sleeping at night. Beautiful room and shower, Breakfast was fantastic, definitely recommend!

A great B&B in the Dublin area. It is situated in Portobello, not in the very center of the city, but still central. In doing so, you find yourself in walking distance from the - often overcrowded - tourist area, but still having a rather real "Dublin-experience". The rooms including the bathroom are rather small but newly renovated. The breakfast...

Had a great three night stay with Paul and Eileen within walking distance of City Center. Walked everywhere and enjoyed the city and the hospitality. Eileen's restaurant and further travel suggestions were perfect. We'd highly recommend a stay with the Coughlin's.
