Positive Reviews

Top class breakfast

The breakfast served up here is top quality. The full Irish is cooked to perfection and guests say that it is more than filling enough to keep you going through the day. You can help yourself to continental items if you prefer lighter options.

A true Irish welcome

The staff at this guest house do their best to welcome you with open arms. They are very friendly and love talking about their city. You can find plenty of information on local tours and sights and the staff are more than helpful in helping plan days out.

Amazing location

This place is the absolute best base for people that are visiting the city centre. You are just a few minutes' walk from all the sights. It's ideal for newcomers to the area as there's no chance you'll get lost.

Negative Reviews

Tiny rooms

Guests don't expect to find palatial rooms in a city centre B&B, but they do expect a little more space than they get at this place. They say that the entire building is cramped and not really worth the money paid despite its central location.

Housekeeping issues

This place isn't filthy, but there have been some issues with left over trash from previous guests and dust in the rooms. Guests also found that the bathrooms could have done with a bit more scrubbing as they had mould in places.
