The restaurant is under renovation. The street also but the hotel is still quiet...it is well placed and close to the city center. Rooms are good and bathromms really nice and useful. No international tv.

Great space! Clean room comfy bed. As a tourist if you are looking to meet locals it is a fantastic area! The only downside was the steps and the amount of luggage I was traveling with, I had a late check in (11pm) and there was someone there to greet me. Great experience.

Nice place to stay for one night. Noisy, but in a good location, as it is in the city centre and walking distance to the spine. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Our room was on street side and as it is Dublin, you can hear the cars and trucks constantly. For people living in the city centre, not a big...

Stayed in one of the luxury apartments. Normally I'd minus one star due to the fact they didn't announce a holding deposit for the room key and also didn't announce the walk to apartment is ten minutes but left at 5/5 as the apartment was brilliant. Spacious and comfy. No hot water in day 2 but overall 5/5

We were looking for a hotel which was cheap and cheerful, centrally located, and with late availability. Kingsfisher Townhouse met all these requirements and exceeded expectations. The room was really comfortable, very clean, was nicely decorated and despite the roadworks outside we had a good nights sleep! It was close to shopping area, and 10 minutes walk to Templebar. The...

Location is good. Staff efficient. Due to renovations following a fire you got a voucher to have your breakfast in a neighbouring coffee shop which was very average. This is really a B&B but charging the same rates as expensive hotels. When you put yourself up in a high price bracket (even allowing for little available accommodation in Dublin) you...

When looking for a hotel in dublin, a lot seem to be pretty expensive, especially if you're looking to stay in a central location. The Townhouse wasn't too expensive at all, easy to find and pretty central - we could walk to most places pretty quickly. Lovely and helpful people on reception 24/7 and they were happy to mind our...

Stayed here recently as part of a couple and we were so impressed with everything from start to finish! When we arrived we were greeted with a friendly smile and the receptionist couldn't have been more friendly. She gave us a full run down of where to go and what to do and directed us to our room. As for...

We stayed here on 8/8/16. Easy check in with helpful staff. Handy location & clean but certainly not the worth the price we paid & no breakfast included either. I would look somewhere else in future for the price we paid.

The hotel is in a fairly decent area of the city for walking into the city center along O'Connell. There are a lot of shops around, ie clothes, groceries etc. Also, the bus stops for the airport are a short walk from here. That is about where the good points slow down. We may not have read enough reviews, but...

Hi Emhug, Thank you for taking the time to write your review and your comments about your recent stay at the Kingfisher Townhouse. You are correct that we had a fire in our restaurant and we are closed for a short period of time while we renovate and reopen shortly. Our restaurant has been in business for over 40 years...
