“Down to earth accommodation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2011

For good, honest and down to earth hospitality and accommodation, without any unnecessary frills and just outside Dublin, this the place to be.

Our room had a stunning sea view which was enchanting by night.

My family and I (6 adults) roadtripped across Ireland in the fall of 2010 (September/October). We stayed in a different B&B each night of our 10-day vacation. Slievenamon Manor was our last night.

I have to say I was surprised to read negative reviews of this place. I might not have stayed here had I read the reviews beforehand, but I'm glad I didn't. We had a very pleasant stay. It's located on the northeast side of the city across from the water and on a main busline. The hosts were kind enough to allow us to check in early (late morning) so that we could leave our cars there (in free, off street parking) and explore the city. The city center is an easy 10-15 minute bus ride away. Our experiences with the buses in Dublin were great. They are clean, safe, convenient and affordable. Our room was on the second floor. It was clean, adequately sized, and had a bathroom ensuite with a queen-size bed. The bed was not overally comfortable, but we didn't mind. A traditional Irish breakfast was served the next morning in the first floor dining room. The host also helped us with directions to the airport that morning. We had no complaints about this B&B and would gladly have stayed here again.

Insalubrious. Really. Dust from ages ago in the room and all over the place in general.

I am still so shocked by how poorly run this B&B is, I can hardly think of where to start. The innkeeper is rarely there...he is constantly leaving notes for guests to go next door or wait for him to return in 10 mins (which turned into over an hour for one guest we encountered on returning from Dublin). No assistance was provided to help guests up multiple flights of stairs with suitcases, beds were lumpier than sausage gravy, cups in the bathroom still had toothpaste on the rim, and the breakfast was cold cereal and powdered orange juice. The towels have never come in contact with fabric softener, and he moved us to a different room, which was stuffy and overlooked the laundry hanging in the back garden.

The 130 bus to Dublin City Centre stops about half a block down , and the fare per person is 1.80. There aren't "loads of restaurants around, as he advertises, but the 1014 Restaurant a couple blocks up the road was quite nice. There is a chip shop next door.

Anyway, service was lamentable, cleanliness was suspect and it was a bitter disappointment.

Charming waterfront property within easy bus reach of the heart of Dublin. Quiet and picturesque, yet convenient to Dublin airport by taxi.

The service at this B&B was average at best. The building is old and the rooms are very small and not very comfortable. Bathroom is small and not really very clean. Location is far from Dublin cit center. It must be reached by City Bus or cab. We did not like this place that much and would look for other accommodations on returning to Dublin. It is a 28 to 30 euro ride to and from the airport.

The Slievenamon Manor is one of the worst places we stayed. while in Irela We spend 7 nights in Ireland staying at B & B's and this was the worst possible choice we could have made. The bathrooms were very dirty, dirt and mold all around the shower, the coffee pot was dirty and the milk had expired in April. Mismatched linens on the beds, we were so concerned with the cleanness that we were afraid to eat breakfast there so just asked for fruit. The young men did not seem to care that we were upset that everything was so dirty and unkept. Do not plan a stay here, they need to be inspected by the B & B association and taken off the places recommended.
