I recently had a very pleasant three night stay at Ardagh House. It's very difficult to find decent reasonably priced accommodation in Dublin, and this B&B strikes the right balance.

Ardagh house lies just outside dublin city centre with good public transport into the centre. Warm welcome, cosy room and excellent breakfast. Ideal if you want to see something more of dublin. Some nice shops, restos and pubs within walking distance

This very nice guest house is located in a Dublin suburb but is very well connected by public transport to the city centre. The bus stop is only a couple of hundred yards from the hotel. There is also a LUAS station about 10 mins walk from the guest house. This was important for us as we did not have...

We were looking for somewhere to stay close to family in Churchtown. This was ideal for us as it was close and had parking . The owners were very helpful and very friendly and made us feel very welcome. I would definitely recommend it and would stay there again.
