We were looking for a hotel which was cheap and cheerful, centrally located, and with late availability. Kingsfisher Townhouse met all these requirements and exceeded expectations. The room was really comfortable, very clean, was nicely decorated and despite the roadworks outside we had a good nights sleep! It was close to shopping area, and 10 minutes walk to Templebar. The...

Location is good. Staff efficient. Due to renovations following a fire you got a voucher to have your breakfast in a neighbouring coffee shop which was very average. This is really a B&B but charging the same rates as expensive hotels. When you put yourself up in a high price bracket (even allowing for little available accommodation in Dublin) you...

When looking for a hotel in dublin, a lot seem to be pretty expensive, especially if you're looking to stay in a central location. The Townhouse wasn't too expensive at all, easy to find and pretty central - we could walk to most places pretty quickly. Lovely and helpful people on reception 24/7 and they were happy to mind our...

Stayed here recently as part of a couple and we were so impressed with everything from start to finish! When we arrived we were greeted with a friendly smile and the receptionist couldn't have been more friendly. She gave us a full run down of where to go and what to do and directed us to our room. As for...

We stayed here on 8/8/16. Easy check in with helpful staff. Handy location & clean but certainly not the worth the price we paid & no breakfast included either. I would look somewhere else in future for the price we paid.

The hotel is in a fairly decent area of the city for walking into the city center along O'Connell. There are a lot of shops around, ie clothes, groceries etc. Also, the bus stops for the airport are a short walk from here. That is about where the good points slow down. We may not have read enough reviews, but...

Hi Emhug, Thank you for taking the time to write your review and your comments about your recent stay at the Kingfisher Townhouse. You are correct that we had a fire in our restaurant and we are closed for a short period of time while we renovate and reopen shortly. Our restaurant has been in business for over 40 years...

Staying at this hotel was a disappointing experience. The room was in great need of renovation. The bathroom was icecold, and the water in the shower was not properly warm. This hotel is greatly overpriced.

Dear Evayxa, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at the Kingfisher. I am very disappointed to hear that you think our hotel room was over priced for your stay. We maintain very competitive prices with all of the other 3 and 4 star hotels in city center location. Our hotel rooms are spotless, we provide...

Our family of 3 stayed in a triple room at Kingfisher Townhouse for 3 nights in April 2016. I've been very seldom let down by TripAdvisor, but this was one of those times. We had high hopes based on the positive reviews and the photos, but we definitely felt duped. First of all, our room looked little like the photos....

Stay here with work quiet a bit, it's a very well located b/b price is reasonable going by Dublin standards, the stairs to the rooms are on the noisy side of things. Place is clean & good overall. Very friendly staff Restaurant next door is very good .

Convenient location for concerts and shopping. Modern and fresh decor with thoughtful extras (bottled water and ear plugs - ear plugs not required!). There is 3 car parking spaces available in a very roomy private car park in the basement - 10 euros a night or work a deal and get it included with the room. Get 10% off meals...
