Aishling House B&B reviews

The b&b seemed chaotically run. We waited outside in the rain ringing the doorbell for 5 mins until another guest let us in. Waited in the hallway for the owner to appear for another 5 mins. Were taken to the wrong room first - waited for owner to go and swap the keys around. Decor was grubby and dated, room smelt musty. Wifi didn't work. We were woken up at 3am by noise outside our room -walls paper thin. Additionally we were informed when we arrived that the b&b no longer accepts card payment which seems ludicrous in this day and age. We had to go back out to withdraw 125 euros cash (no cash machine within walking distance so quite an inconvenience). The cost of the room (not including breakfast) seemed a lot given the service and size/condition of the room.

Has amply sufficient for me! I spent three days there and very well placed under. The breakfast is okay for the price and was good. The public transport connections to downtown is great. Bus stop is 5 minutes on foot and the DART is to foot about 10 minutes 30 euros it cost to ride with the Taxi from the Airport to the Aishling House. Thanks for the great information and the friendly help. Best regards from Berlin. Bye for now Jan

I staid in a double room and spent my holiday with my girlfriend. Everything was amazing but i would want specify only one detail: The price didn't include the breakfast but on the site this thing wasn't clear. For all the rest i advise to travell with Venere.com and in the Aishling House.

I like B and Bs because I like a small place with soul. i like to feel that I am living in the country not just being a tourist. Aishling House fit the bill for me. I don't like big hotels with a lot of services. To me they are mostly impersonal.

OK value for modest price. Heavy curtains were dusty & room musty, activating one family member's asthma. Mr. English a helpful host. Mrs. was neither friendly nor accommodating when extra room supplies requested. Close to bus line a plus. Breakfast excellent and plentiful.

Some of the equipment could do with updating. The shower was very slow and old fashioned with a poor water flow. The room above us had squeaky floorboards and the people one night seemed to walk up and down all night and then get up to leave at the crack of dawn but otherwise the room was quiet. The location is great for older folk or families probably not so good for younger people who want to go to the pubs and clubs. Breakfast was adequate and nicely cooked but small and in comparison with the "Full Irish" offered in restaurants or cafes not particularly competitive in value. But we thoroughly enjoyed it, would like to come again and would recommend it to our friends.

The proprietors were moderately welcoming. No assistance was given with our baggage. beds were comfortable. No lift, we were on the third floor. We had an early morning flight, they did not say goodbye, or leave any food out for us; even though they said they would. Bathroom had no heat and was outdated. The breakfasts' were plentiful and good quality. Location to city centre accessible by bus. Resturants in area minimal choice, and poor quality.

I booked the B & B on line the night before, having never been in Dublin I didn’t know what to expect. If you are looking for a quite very pleasantly situated B&B, a very short bus trip from the city centre. I would certainly recommended Aishling House for a very warm welcome, but even better excellent accommodation.
