A terrifically intimate hotel in a great location, with World Class Service. Noel and staff have made my wife and I and our family, welcome now for over 15 years. It simply is the only place we would stay in Dublin, truly Irish and wonderfully friendly.

Highly recommend. Very good location, nice area, convenient for St Stephen's Green, Central Dublin. Noel, Sean, Adam and staff were extremely helpful with dining advice, other reservations, contacting previous B&B re lost item, taxi arrangements and even a wonderful dialogue about a branch of the family tree in County Tipperary. Breakfast was excellent, A+; thank you Linda & Delia. And...

What a find! Yes, expect the best breakfast in Dublin. Yes, expect the best night's sleep in Dublin. And yes, expect the very best in hospitality and warmth from owners Noel and Deirdre - nothing is too much trouble. Sadly we were staying for just one night en route to a wedding, but if we'd been staying longer in Dublin...

It's a warm and welcoming experience. The owner and staff are terrific, generous, and helpful. All steps are taken to make you happy. I would recommend getting a twin bedded room if you are used to American king beds.

The hotel is amazing - we stayed in the Georgian townhouse in a family room - and there was plenty of space for the four of us. We loved walking through the garden to breakfast each day. Breakfast is wonderful, and they were so accommodating! Loved the shower and the heated towel rack. The hotel is centrally located, and I...

We loved No. 31--not an overstatement to label it one of our top hotel experiences. Lovely hotel and grounds, ideal location, relaxed feel in a beautifully appointed facility with top-of-the-line details (Haston's mattresses, etc.). The owner, Noel, and all of his staff couldn't have been more welcoming or accommodating. And the breakfasts. We arrived to check in (ragged from our...

Dublin is a friendly city and our hosts at Number 31 certainly contributed to this atmosphere. As soon as we arrived we were sat down to a cafetière of fresh coffee and slices of homemade orange and cranberry loaf. Reception has a sunken lounge and a peat fire. The accommodation building was originally a Georgian townhouse which has been tastefully...

Delightful stay. The staff were friendly and very helpful throughout. The owner, Noel, was the consummate host, welcoming us for an early check-in with tea and freshly baked bread. Linda was instrumental in helping me address my husband's illness while there, phoning a doctors' service and giving me directions to a local chemist. Our room was beautiful, warmly decorated, quiet...

My husband and I visited this B&B at the recommendation of my cousin. We spent a total of 6 nights at this lovely cozy, clean, hospitable Inn and we were delighted with the service and staff! "Overjoyed" is really a better word to describe it and here's why: We were in Dublin to visit with our college daughter who is...
