This hotel is very nice. Our room was large with two double beds and one twin. Cathedral ceilings and floor to ceiling windows really add to the room. Breakfast was also spot on. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

This was great spot to access interesting areas of Dublin. Our room was small but clean and cosy. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom worked well and it was very quiet. We enjoyed walking through St Stephen's Green.

Historical Traveler Reviews Stauntons on the Green Dublin
spent three days in this guest house, when i arrived the car park was no where near the guest house a staff member parked it, when I wanted to leave each day in my car I had to wait over half an hour for it to be returned to me-very inconvient. did not get a good night sleep from the noise of traffic on the street. Breakfast was adequate but would expect more for the price we payed. overall a very dissapointing stay would not reccommend this place
Best Location in Dublin
Stayed at Staunton's in July - fabulous location - can walk to most museums, shopping, tourist attractions. Charming rooms, garden, friendly and accomodating staff. Excellent value. Ask for a front room if you enjoy the street sounds, a garden room if you prefer quiet. I always prefer the front overlooking St. Stephen's Green.
Needs quite a bit of sprucing up
Booked this B&B because of it's location, great idea, because of it's proximity to everything. Staff was generally nice but a little rough around the edges. The rooms though were very run down. Cracks in the ceilings, wallpaper at least 20 years old and what was that with the toilet? It was so close to the wall only skinny butts could fit comfortably. I don't have a big butt, but even my wife did not fit entirely. Would not return to Staunton's.
A bit like Faulty Towers, perhaps
This place definitely has a good location, and that is worth quite a bit in Dublin these days. The rates are also low, especially since they include cooked breakfast. However, I also encountered issues that should not exist in any place posing as a hotel:
1. Hygiene was not great; the space behind the window shutters had clearly NEVER been cleaned, so huge balls of dust emerged when I shut them for the night.
2. There is an electric kettle in each room, with teabags and instant coffee. However, the kettles were so dirty that nobody in their right mind would use them (an effective way of cutting cost, perhaps?)
3. Make sure to request a room facing the back garden, as the road out front carries a lot of traffic and the windows are old (no triple glazing here..)
All in all, you will definitely feel you're in a cheap place. But if you don't expect much, you'll be OK.
Room with a view in a house of character
I am currently staying in this hotel. It's made up of three townhouses joined together and therefore no elevators unfortunately. However, none of the rooms are too high up and they have wide staircases anyway. The rooms are spotless and with nice pine furniture, even the small one I was in. My room is a small compact single room but with all the amenities. Moreover, what intrigued me was a beautiful view of the garden behind the hotel and a skylight over the bathroom which gave it an airy impression. The only thing I have to say is that the TV is practically useless as reception is very poor on all the channels. Moreover, the overwhelming Irish breakfast served in other Dublin hotels is not available here even though you still get cereals, yoghurt and a modest fry up. However, it's good enough for me.
Hotel with bags of Character
Having just returned from a two-night stay in the hotel, I was a little worried, having booked the hotel, having not read the previous feedback.
We had an excellent stay, we have previously stayed at Jury's Custom House; Staunton's was a refreshing change from the "normal" hotel room experience. Our room was excellent, magnificent ceilings, fireplace and view over the garden. Their were some down points such as the breakfast was ok but not fantastic and the bathroom needed a few new fittings.
Never the less, the hotel was an opportunity to stay in a Georgian town house, overlooking a wonderful park, within easy walking distance of the main centre. If you are looking for a hotel with bags of character Staunton's is for you...
I stayed here for 2 weeks in February. I had a spacious room, with very high ceilings and two tall bow windows overlooking the garden. This is not a "modern hotel", sparkling clean, with each room exactly the same. It is several townhouses joined together. While some of the furnishings were "gently worn", I found that to be part of the charm. My bathroom was very small, no tub, just a shower. However, that shower had the best water pressure of any shower I have used in many trips to Ireland. Breakfast is included. The staff is friendly and the location, on St. Stephen's Green, could not be better. The price was very reasonable. I loved it and would happily return.
Give it a miss
The room I had was dreadful and the water cold.
My friend and I spend a wonderful few days staying at Stauntons on the Green last month. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is great. I found no faults with this place!
Staunton's is Great
We just returned from a week's stay at Staunton's on the Green, and can't say enough good things about it. The location and accomodations were certainly good, but the service was exceptional. Everyone went out of their way to help make our first trip to Dublin as enjoyable as we always thought it would be. No question was too trivial, and the staff (Catherine, Colette, Joanne, and Brian) were just spectacular. If we ever return to Dublin, we will definitely stay here again. Great experience all around.

... We passed thru Killybegs which is a fish processing center with many nice home overlooking the Bay. We transferred to smaller vans at Killcar to get up Slieve League Cliffs. The cliffs are the highest sea cliffs in Europe, approximately 1920 ft. Paddy told stories and history about the area. He said that this area was part of the Appalachian Mountain Range and that the Appalachian Trail would continue from Newfoundland over to northern Ireland and then to Scotland. The cliffs ...
... the bars. To learn all there is to know about Guinness we arrived at the Guinness factory and store around 1pm Saturday afternoon. Quite a presence the facilities have -- think of a major brewery owning the land from Lake Michigan to our offices on N Michigan and then down to Millennium Park in width.
The museum was packed as you might expect on a Saturday afternoon, but very manageable and a very well laid out self guided set up. Very modern architecture as well. I suspect ...
We survived the night! The only ones in the entire complex. Mine host, Tom , who has a permanent relationship with the Blarney Stone, he does not stop talking! He had to get the help in for cooking our dinner. At the prescribed time we made our way down to the beautifully decorated bar where we sat on throne like chairs, while Tom was trying to sell us an aperitif. Probably shocked with our choice of a cider and a ...
... provide touring options around Ireland.ESN (for European students even though I'm apart of it) and ISS (International Students Society) it's pretty much a grudge match between the two and I feel as though it's a turf war. I'm hoping to go to Galway with ESN but waiting in the line for any trips is ridiculously long and has too many people to get a more local vibe. But it is also a way to see the country. ...
... around the exhibition and went a bit crazy in the Guinness shop. It is massive. If you have been, you'll know what I mean.
Back into the artsy stuff, we saw a film at the Irish Film Institute that night, called "How I live now". It was really good and the film institute itself is a nice building tucked away in Temple Bar. I can recommend the film, check out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RSaxm68P PT4 for the trailer.
