We were so happy that Sandra had a room for us since we only booked a week before. Unfortunately my daughter was in a car accident in county Donegal. She was in the hospital for a week and when she was released we needed a place to stay in Dublin until we can book our flight home. I phoned Sandra and explained our circumstance. We were lucky that there was a room available. The room must have been the former attic and she did warn us that they were about 30 steps to get up there but we didn't mind that. The room was small but had one double bed and two twin beds and just enough space to walk in between the beds. The room and the tiny bathroom were spotless. The one small window opened to the roof so it felt a little claustrophobic sometimes but we did not really spend a lot of time in the room. The breakfasts we had were good. The location was great for public transport or catching a taxi. We actually picked up the hop on hop off bus at Hedigan's pub which was about a two minute walk from there. We ended up staying four nights. There was one evening when we walked in and smelled cigarettes. The cigarette smell drifted all the way up to our room and lasted through the late evening. We let Sandra know this the next day and she seemed surprised and skeptical about it. This is the only negative thing I can say about the B&B. We had a great stay otherwise. When it was time to leave Sandra arrange for a cab to take us back to the airport and we really appreciated that.
