Location: Located 20 - 30 minutes south of Dublin and is a 2 minute walk from the 140 bus line. The location is great as Rathgar is also a city of sorts. Smaller than Dublin, but comparable to a smaller city in the United States. If you are walking around Rathgar, you are about 15 minutes from pubs and restaurants...

Stayed at The Ardagh House for 5 nights while in Dublin for Paddys. Didn't want to stay in City Centre with all of the commotion going on. This was the perfect choice! First of all, Mary and Willy are the most gracious hosts! Make you feel at home right away. Thank you Willy for carrying my luggage up those stairs!...

I stayed at Ardagh for a night and my parents spent 3 during Jan'17. The place is very well kept with nice big rooms, dining area and garden. The owners are hospitable and the breakfast is decent. The receptionist though was weird, I asked her for a jug of water and glasses and she told me that there are glasses...

Stayed here 3 nights in September. The good : Nice quiet location, very friendly and helpful owners, excellent breakfasts, comfortable bed. Not so good : our room could have done with sprucing up, bathroom especially needed decorating and shower updating. TV in room oldest I've seen for a long time. Poor soundproofing. From our experience Ardagh House is worth staying...

The owners of this accommodation were so welcoming and lovely to talk too. They gave us great advice on how to get to the city and really made us feel welcome and comfortable.

The Ardagh House has a warm & welcoming atmosphere. Host & staff are very nice & helpful. The rooms are cozy as well although the shower sometimes lacks water pressure and heat (which is probably the case in most guesthouses in Irland). The Breakfast was very good and plenty. I'd definetely visit here again.

Good parking at the hotel. No lift in the hotel, so request a room downstairs if stairs are a problem. The room was unheated in October, with no way of adjusting the controls. No wifi in the room, and only upon arrival did I learn from the room's handbook that it is only in some rooms. Not mine, sadly! Hotel...

The service was very friendly and breakfast was nice if a bit limited. (Tea was excellent.) The rooms were clean if worn, and we had several (cultural?) problems in the beginning with using the shower, drawing the curtains(!) and flushing the toilet. The bus to the centre didn't take long, but they ran at longish intervals during the weekend. All...
