Considering this hotel was only 45 Euro a night and is near the centre of Dublin it is very good value. The host is great and breakfast was excellent.

Upon arrival we were greeted by Cathrine who was very friendly and welcoming from the start. Cathrine was very helpful and provided us with a map and good information on local attractions and services, as well as ensuring that we could find our way back to the guesthouse(using the map). The double room (#3) was adequately sized, clean and comfortable...

The owners were unfriendly to the point of rude. The facility was run down and held a musty smell. The windows let in street sound. Breakfast was limited, if you are interested in fresh fruit and yogurt, choose another facility

I stayed in the Marian guest house for 4 days and enjoyed the atmosphere and hospitality immensely. After showing up after a 8 hour flight with no accommodation; they gave me easy instructions from the airport, with a bus ride that left me outside the door. This was my first time in Ireland and I'd heard rumors of the famous...
