Me and my family stayed here for three nights in july. We got two bedrooms. One bedroom was on the second floor facing the street in front, which can be quite busy and noisy at night. The other bedroom was on the top floor, three flights of stairs up, and facing the back. Both rooms where very small and extremely...

This place advertises itself as basic rooms, with clean linen and towels. If you expect anymore then you will be disappointed. For the price, it is reasonable considering that it is so central and close to the buzz of the city centre yet it's more comfortable then any hostel is, and quieter! I love the surroundings and for me, I...

I stayed at Pillar B&B with my girlfriend for a few nights and we both had a really nice time there. The manager of the B&B, Mo, is such a nice and friendly guy, we both had a really nice time talking to him and having coffee with him. As my girlfriend is Croatian, she was very happy to have...

We stayed here for 5 nights over Easter. Though the place was relatively cheap, I wouldn't stay again. Yes, the rooms are small and cramped and there are shared toilets and showers, and the walls are super thin, but that's what can be reasonably expected for the price and we would have been happy. The problem is that the place...

After booking this B and B I checked the reviews on here and was worried. However after staying 3 nights I wasn't disappointed. Yes it was basic, but it was clean, comfortable and good value for money. It was very central for all tourist attractions. I would definately stay there again on my next visit to Dublin and would recommend...

I was in January and the heater didn't work! There is a note which says you'll have the breakfast served in your room from 8 to 10, I had to have breakfast in another place cause there was nobody in there! I had to ask for toilet roll ...! I'll never go back to this place!

A dreadful mistake on my part to book this. The price of €50 was way to high for a box room with no windows (did have a sky light), no sink, no towels provided, communal toilet and showers. Breakfast cost extra so I didn't bother. I was kept awake most of the night by noises guests and even noisier plumbing...
