Outstanding value and excellent location 1 block from bus station and close to city center. We just completed a 3-day stay here. The hotel is very well-maintained and has a comfortable and homey feel. Our room was clean and quiet. We thought staff were unusually pleasant and helpful, as well as eager to please. The traditional Irish breakfast was great....

The staff were very kind and attentive. The house was beautiful, yet homey. Welcoming front parlor with cozy fire. Grandfather clock chiming in the hallway. Enjoyed the full Irish breakfast that was part of the room rate. Very convenient for all the places we wanted to visit on foot. Would definitely stay there again.

The location is good, the price is right, and the place is clean and friendly. The breakfast is just OK,. Right next to the bus station (3 minutes walk) for buses to the airport. Would stay here again.

I carefully read the reviews of every place we consider staying while on vacation. This b&b was no different. The reviews were for the most part all very positive. I agree that the staff was friendly and very helpful. Our room was tiny, but clean. That was to be expected. We could not get wifi in our room, so we...

We stayed at the Anchor House in Dublin for one night in April 2012. This B&B is conveniently located within walking distance of many of the attractions in Dublin. Our room was in the rear of the property and was clean and comfortable, albeit a bit small. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was nice. There is...

This B & B is in a great location for touring, but it's very near to the rougher part of town. While it is not actually IN the rougher part of town, just make sure you are careful not to get lost and wind up there. The rooms are very very small, but adequate and clean. The owners were very...

Nice B&B, good location. Nice comfy rooms and very friendly staff. Great breakfast. Good location (10 min walk to Temple Bar). ATM on the corner. Grocery stores, souvenir store and pharmacy witin 150 metres. Only 5 mins walk to the 2nd stop on the Dublin Bus Tour (green double decker hop on hop off buses)

We spent 2 nights at this B & B in May 2012. The B & B is centrally located, the rooms are basic and the staff very friendly and helpful. The beds aren't the most comfortable and the rooms are a bit of a tight squezze. However if you want a basic B & B at a reasonable price, then...
