Marian Guest House
Ranked #48 of 150 Dublin B&B and Inns
Reviewed 16 December 2015

Very good value and all the sights within easy reach. Excellent breakfast and spacious sightseeing information. Free parking if you request it in advance. Room and bathroom are good but it's an old house.

Room Tip: Not accessible for wheelchairs

Myself and my husband stayed for four nights and during that time our hosts were great.Nothing was too much trouble and you could have a full Irish breakfast or whatever combination you felt like on the day. Would recommend to anyone who visits Dublin it's close to all the attractions and excellent value for money.

Stayed here for a long weekend in August for my 30th birthday.

Really enjoyed our time here. The owner was warm and welcoming, and was happy to help with anything we asked of her.
The location is great, walkable to the main part of town - quite steep walking back again but to be honest after all the Guinness we drank, we couldn't care less!
The room itself was lovely and quiet, cosy and comforting. Exactly how B&B's should be! The shared bathroom was clean and adequate for our needs, though the extractor fan could be a bit noisy at times but definitely not at a disturbing level.
Breakfast was delicious and delivered promptly every morning to our room. Was rather romantic being cuddled up together eating toast and tea in bed, I must admit.

Would definitely recommend to others, and will stay again on our next visit to this beautiful city.

Oh - I almost forgot, I loved the 2 little ornamental ducks on the steps at the front of the building. Became quite a habit us both patting them on the head on the way in and out, and they came in handy when we had had a skinful and couldn't remember which door was our B&B's front door!

€50 B & B per night, off rd parking if required and wifi. Very clean, spotless. Perfect hostess, Catherine is so welcoming and helpful-This lady really can't do enough for you. Beautiful Georgian property, old world charm. Reason for stay, family member in Mater, less than 10 mins walk... good value.

(Downside, room 5 was top floor-inclining.)

Great location for a romantic stay in Dublin!! Slept through breakfast but that was our choice. Nothing was no trouble, advised us of anything we asked, very helpful. B&b bit dated but clean so cannot complain did everything it said on the tin!
