The rooms were basic but a good size and good value considering the cheaper price. The breakfast included was great value and all home cooked. The owners were lovely and helpful and they really...

Our son and a classmate stayed at King's Inn prior to a university spring break class in Dublin. Traveled there to connect with distant family in the area. John's rapid responses to all my questions regarding his hotel were very helpful and reassuring. The kids enjoyed their all-too-short stay immensely: incredibly comfortable beds to recover from a long flight, exceptional...
