Many times I grace the paths of Ireland's capital but I have failed to write about my adventures, I love Dublin everything is so accessible there is a lot to see and do, shopping is great, buses come and go at accessible times and places, the Luas system is the best way to get around in Ireland, the stops are easily signed and called out so your sure not to miss it.

Accommodations in Dublin

So far our accommodations have been great. The first place we stayed, as I mentioned before, was warm and welcoming. The rooms were pretty basic but they were clean and had everything we needed. The only real down side was that we had to walk up 4 flights of stairs. But hey at least we will be toned. The water pressure was also a little low, but at …

... on a beach in Aussie. They would constantly save Asians from drowning and some admitted they couldn't swim even though they were deep in the water. I can never escape Asians! Luckily, I had a great view from my room and I just stared outside and admired the Irish beauty. I also reflected on my trip and debated a million ways to not go home. I just can't!! This trip has been awesome and I don't want reality to begin. I went back ...

    In a row of B&Bs

    More like a hotel than a B&B, this Guesthouse was more than adequate for our needs. It was very inexpensive (we stayed midweek) and had really great value. Good location. Breakfast was good but limited options. Weird note - you had to leave your key at reception every time you left the building.

    Chicago loves Anchor Guest House

    from

    The Anchor Guesthouse was our very first stop in Ireland. My friend and I stayed here 5 nights and were very impressed by this B&B and the warm hospitality we received from the Coyne's. From the very beginning, they were very accomodating with our rental car, willing to move it out of the private car park whenever we needed. We also ventured out on foot since they are located right in the heart of Dublin. Even at all hours of the night, there was a happy person on duty to let us in through the security door. The breakfast here was delicious, the best scrambled eggs, hot coffee and tea, and very attentive service. The Coyne's were also very willing to assist us in our site-seeing around town and local recommendations. The room was also great! There is a "lift" to the room which was so appreciated since we had a lot of luggage, the only B&B that we didn't have to drag our bags up a ton of stairs. Our room was spacious and clean, we were pleasantly surprised every time we came back to the room and saw that not only had it been cleaned, but the bathroom toilet cleaned as well, and toilet paper always stocked. Great heat in the room and bathroom, great shower, awesome water pressure, and the only B&B we stayed at that had a normal sink faucet. I don't know about you but I wash my face with warm water and there's nothing more annoying than going back and forth between a faucet of scalding hot and the other ice cold to try to wash your face!! We highly recommend this B&B and would definately stay here again if we are fortunate to travel to Ireland again!

    Anchor Guest House is the best

    from

    Great location, good and friendly service, nice rooms and reasonable prices. I'll come here again!

    A central review

    from

    a very neat clean b&b in a central location at a affordable price. the staff is friendly and very helpful for any requests you might have for sites to see or places to find. serves a great breakfast every day. I recomend this b&b as a four star establishment. it made our stay quite enjoyable.

    Absolutely Perfect!

    from

    The Anchor Guest took care of us with great kindness. The location is perfect and within a mere 5 to 10 minute walk to Temple Bar & Trinity College and even closer to the bus depot & O'Connell Street. The rate was wonderful, the breakfast delicious, the staff ever caring and the location could not be beat. Not only did the staff arrange for a taxi on our day of departure and a wake up call, but they also climbed the tower to make sure the princesses' were up and ready for their flight. Even when we botched our reservations the Guest House made sure we were accommodated and comfortable. Never an issue with the climate of the rooms or hot water which is odd as I've always expected that buildings that old would struggle to meet the demands of this "Instant Gratification" American. I would stay at the Anchor Guest House again and again and again.

    Fantastic Place to Stay - Friendly, Charming & Clean!

    from

    The "Lonely Planet Travel Guide for Ireland" says the Anchor Guesthouse is highly recommended by it's readers and we were not dissapointed! The rooms were clean, spacious and comfortable. The breakfast is plentiful and delicious.

    The Staff couldn't have been nicer to us and helped us with a great many little details that really made our stay in Dublin special - Including providing (without request) a light breakfast tray for us very early morning (4am!) so we wouldn't be hungry at the airport.

    Central location, safe neighborhood and a price that makes you feel a little guilty!

    Would definitely stay again and recommend to family & friends.

    Great location, nice people and good food!!!!!

    from

    Our family of four stayed in two seperate rooms from Sept. 14-20, 2004. The rooms were spacious and well kept with lots of hot water. It was a perfect location for all the "happening" places. Train, DART and bus stations just around the corner. The bus stop for the airport was right in front of the guest house. The staff was extremely helpful and very nice. Our hot breakfasts were cooked to order plus juice, coffee or tea and cold cereal if you desired. Yes, there was a 7 Euro "deposit" but that was for long distance calls. Any unused balance was returned to you. I would highly recommend this guest house to anyone wanting to stay in Dublin. We'll be back!!!!

    Surly Host, Cold Room

    from

    This B&B was a big disappointment! Sure the room was well appointed and fairly comfortable. The trouble was that there was no heat in the room. There was some in the bath but when I complained that stopped as well. The management suggested I shut the shutters on the windows. It was a 40° night. That didn't help very much.

    Very good value for money

    from

    We spent 4 nights in total in this guesthouse and found it comfortable and extremely well priced compared to the average prices in Dublin. We did have hot water at all times, the door arrangement was no problem at all (there was someone available at the desk 24-hours a day), and the managers were very friendly and helpful. The location is very convenient, with transportation to/from the airport right outside, and within a short stroll from all the city attractions. I would stay there again.

    Great rate, no hot water

    from

    We recently stayed at the Anchor Guest House on Lower Gardiner St. in Dublin. While the room itself was comfortable (including the bed), and the rate was much lower than the hotels, we had no hot water regardless of the time of day we tried to take showers. When we complained to the desk, we were told high demand in the morning meant there wouldn't be enough for everyone! No explanation why we didn't have hot water at 12:30 p.m. Frankly, 120 euros a night ought to include hot water. Also, there was an annoying entry set-up - no key for the front door; we had to ring a buzzer every time we wanted to enter, then wait for someone to come out from the back.

    Very good deal !

    from

    The hotel is very well located, you can walk easily to the Temple Area or to the main bus terminal. The bus to/from the airport stops just around the corner. The room we had was big and very clean. Breakfast was allright. We've recommended it to other people and they all liked it.
