Great family run B&B/Hotel (not sure of the difference) You are at the end of the number 14 bus route which runs into town in 20 minutes and close to Rathgar / Rathmines villages.

Breakfast was great. Room was good. We felt the bathroom/TV could use some updates. We really enjoyed everything! Thank you

Our family of five had a very pleasant 3-night stay at Ardagh House. Our two rooms were a bit small, but very clean and comfortable.

We were so happy with our stay at the Ardagh house. Even before we arrived, we had correspondence with Mary who advised us about how to plan my visit in Ireland (even beyond Dublin)!
