Whichever way you head out of the front door of this guest house, you’re likely to end up in somewhere quaint and interesting in Dublin.
The famous glasshouses of the National Botanical Gardens are just a stroll away, while exploring a little further by taxi will take you to the city centre crammed with shops, chic restaurants, cool bars and cafes.
And Phoenix Park, said to be the largest city centre open space in Europe, is a couple of kilometres down the road.
This 23-roomed red brick hotel is known for staff friendliness, a quiet ambience and going that extra mile to make family stays enjoyable.

Bright, clean and airy rooms are priced to start from around £60 a night with parking and free wi-fi.
This family-run hotel can cater for parties of up to six in a room and is equipped with cots for babies and toddlers.

“This hotel was a great price/value hotel!” said Peter Kovacs, from Hungary.
“We were booked for the first and the final night of our Irish Tour. We arrived very early, really to park our car so that we could experience Dublin. However we were given a most comfortable room immediately and superb directions of how to catch a bus into the city. The room was clean and comfortable and we enjoyed a quiet night,” said Ian B.
