Breakfast was big and delicious, all freshly made and a nice way to a chat with other people around a table. There is also a lovely sitting room...

My husband and I visited with a larger tour. We had a very clean, cheery, pretty, private room with our own private bathroom overlooking the breathtaking garden. Our bedroom window looked out on the High Cross and the street below. We felt right at home, cozy and warm and comfortable. Gemma made the best Irish breakfasts we could have imagined,...

A perfect little place just off a major bus line--easy to get into Dublin or to the major sites I wanted to see. The hostess, Gemma, was absolutely delightful and accommodating. I am already planning my next visit and am planning on staying there.

Our charming host Gemma looked after us superbly. I slept like a log and my room with en suite was very nice. Gemma also organised a wonderful buffet meal for my tour group followed by a traditional Irish music evening with great musicians. Had a great time. Has a most beautiful garden.
