Beautifully maintained, B&B with quaint, immaculate rooms, stately dining and lounge areas, excellent breakfast and ample parking. The proprietors,Mary and Willie Doyle, are a real joy, immensely friendly ,considerate and helpful. Readily accessible to Dublin tourist areas though not within walking distance .

We only had a one night stay however loved the big airy room with 4 beds for our family (actually 5) and the Chesterfield lounge and large windows overlooking the garden. Breakfast was delicious and our welcome was friendly but what took the stay above the ordinary was our hosts assistance with our teenage son's soccer ball. It had to...

I recently had a very pleasant three night stay at Ardagh House. It's very difficult to find decent reasonably priced accommodation in Dublin, and this B&B strikes the right balance. Ardagh House is situated in the pleasant Dublin suburb of Rathgar, about a 15 minute bus ride in to the town centre. Within short walking distance is the village of...
