This small guesthouse was great. You can take the bus from the airport direct to the Glen Guesthouse. It lets you off right across the street. Also walking distance from the heart of down town where there spire is. Lots of shops and restaurants on that main street. The hop on and hop off buses are also there. It is...

Stayed here for 2 nights for a short break. Accommodation was disappointing. We were put in a front double bedroom. Traffic noise was bad but understandable being located on a busy main road. Guests from the next door hostel gathered at different times of night/early morning to chat on the front step which woke us several times during the night....

The front desk guy was not supportive and had no patience. Almost unpolite. The room heater was broken. Towels too small and very used. Not so nice location. Too expensive for the value. The pictures on the web site does not match the reallity. Find another one.

This was a difficult review to write Stayed here for two nights as part of a pre paid Dublin short break deal This guest house is a 5 minute walk from the river and a 10/15 minute walk from the Temple Bar area That said - it is located in the more run down part of town - it is...

Spent 4 nights in this hotel in January 2017. We were lucky and had a room off the main road, so found the room slightly small but very clean. The breakfast choice is excellent and the staff most helpful and friendly. Cheap priced accommodation but not too long to walk into the heart of Dublin itself.

The location is convenient to both central Dublin sights and the airport with the Airlink bus stopping right in front. Rooms are basic but adequate with the beds being quite hard, pillows flat and hot water and water pressure intermittent. The included breakfast is plentiful and staff very friendly.

My sister and I stayed at this guest house for 1 night. I asked for a room on the lower floors and we were given one on the first floor with a lift, in the new side of the building which is refurbished and looks really good. I would imagine the old part is not exactly the same. Our room...

Starting off with the bad, this hotel unfortunately does not have an elevator so we had to carry our bags to the top floor up flights of stairs. The staff at the hotel did offer to assist us with our heavier luggage but it was still quite the climb. Also the pressure in the shower was awful which was a...

Great location, with a bus stop to the airport right outside you can take the 747 bus for €10 return which makes the transfer from the airport to the hotel very easy.
