The hotel, or better said guesthouse is quite pleasant and the personal is top. However, there are two things that I disliked here: first, the offer I found was like "wooow, EUR 79 instead of EUR 200!"; a great deal. Second, some of the pictures make you believe your stepping into a modern hotel, whereas it is a ell conserved...

My two friends and I stayed in apartment 3 over the road from the guesthouse. The rooms were very nice and spacious, and we had everything we needed. They supplied a hairdryer, ironing board, toiletries and all kitchen necessities which was very handy, and the beds were very comfy! The only cons of staying here would be the size of...

Stayed at the Clifden Guesthouse in Dublin. We found the Hotel very tired and desperately in need of a refurbishment. Although after saying that the bed was extremely comfortable and clean. The room was very small to hold three single beds and we had to do a shuffling act to use the bathroom and literally had to climb over beds....

Spent two nights with my wife during a recent business trip, attracted by the favorable ranking, which is in my experience not justified. Room was very small, and so was the bed which for two can be really unconfortable, especially with a mattress with a lot of .. mileage. Bathroom clean but not really tidy. In the morning the fried...

It was my first time in Dublin and I was visiting with my boyfriend. We arrived early so had some time to look around before check in. The lady at the desk took our bags for us and was extremely helpful explaining how to get to all the near by attractions, even drawing out directions on a map for us!...
