We stayed for 4 nights and had our breakfast here too. I enjoyed this place very much. It's not fancy yet it is very much the feel of Dublin. Wonderful breakfasts. Easy to walk to all over if your a walker. Not far from the Abbey Theater.
It's been a few years since I stayed here - way before 2016 so apologies for the retrospective review. The Townhouse was always the first place I thought of to stay when traveling to Dublin. Hopefully the service, helpfulness and friendliness of staff has not changed in recent times. The rooms were always clean and beds freshly made. The bathrooms were clean and showers hot. Tea making facilities, safes, wifi and TV in the rooms. Wifi also available on the gallery. Many rooms have views over the hotel's Japanese gardens. The breakfast room is pleasantly comfortable, bright and airy and the breakfast will set you up for the day. I love the hotel's links to Dublin's literary past and the quirky room names that reinforce that. The hotel is five minutes walk away from many of Dublin's historical sites and entertainment, e.g. O'Connell Street, Grafton Street, the Post Office and the River Liffey, pubs and theatres etc. Other sites such as Dublin Castle, Trinity College are within 10 minutes brisk stroll but Dublin is full of quirky surprises that you will encounter en route to the mainstream attractions.Several small markets, e.g. Cow Lane on different days, selling everything from cheeses to crafts. Close to the DART that will take you to attractions further afield. The hotel is also close, (walking distance), to the bus and train stations and the airport bus stops right by the front door!
I stayed here twice during my trip to Ireland in late July and Early August. My rooms were nice and comfortable. The Irish breakfast was good and plentiful.
What really set this hotel apart was the friendly staff, including David. I was traveling to Galway and he recommended I take a tour with the Wild Rover Tour group to The Cliffs of Moher. The tour would go to Galway and I could get off there instead of returning back to Dublin. I wanted to see the cliffs anyway, so I saved money and time. Dave also helped me get to the sites around Dublin, riding the green buses.
Thank for all your help and pleasantries you passed onto me during my stay.
Great value. Breakfast wonderful. Cozy place not too far from all the bars and nightlife. Like a lot of Dublin, the place has character. Service was fine. Generally a busy place. Overall it was a pleasant experience and well located.
