Me and husband stayed here for two nights for a weekend away. Catherine the owner was lovely. The Irish breakfast is lovely. The location is about 10 minute walk away from the main centre. The room was okay, the en suite was a little small but okay.

We decided to see Dublin and spent 3 days here for a quick little getaway. We kept an open mind with the intent to see and do as much as possible. We have never stayed at a bnb before but I'm pleased to say that I'm happy it was at Marian guest house. She was a very lovely lady and...

Clean & tidy but as a single unworldly traveller I found the airplane size toilet area and shower in a closet quite unnerving and also the small single room with sloping floor on third floor. The breakfast was good and the only time I saw the hosts.

I´m not sure about the other rooms but the single room is not good. Very small with no facilities (but a ~40 years old TV); - Bathroom was not clean; - Staff was rude when I asked for an adapter at 22h; - Internet service unavailable (except if you stay behind the door´s room)

Lovely proprietors and about a 10 minute walk into the centre of Dublin. There was quite a lot of rubbish on the street. The room was clean though and breakfast was OK . They let us leave luggage there whilst waiting to check-in.

An excellent central location. Clean and quiet. My hosts were pleasant and helpful. I would definitely stay here again!!! I had a single room with a shared bathroom which was fine for me. Not luxurious but clean and comfortable.

Fantastic breakfast with friendly host and made what you liked. Room was basic with loose sockets. Tv was to high and small you couldn't watch it. Within walking distance to centre with lots to do. Quite street and would go back.

Catherine and Brendan were amazing hosts! I stayed there for 4 days and am so happy I walked up to the Marion Guest House. The best breakfast I've had in a VERY long time as well. Catherine was extremely hospitable and went out of her way to give places to go and see not just In Dublin but around the...

My husband and I stayed one night and received excellent service. The room was spotless and lovely and warm. Catherine was so welcoming, friendly and extremely friendly. Our concert that we had planned to go to was cancelled but Catherine suggested a wonderful pub to go to and we had a brilliant night. Breakfast next morning was gorgeous. We would...
