I found this place on the internet when searching for an affordable option to spend a few days in Dublin. As I always liked Clontarf and as I refuse to sleep in a non-seaview room when I am so close to the sea we booked it in advance even though it wasn't exactly very cheap (We paid 42.50 per person sharing over New Year 2006/2007 for an ensuite double room with a modern bathroom, TV and 3 big seaview windows).
It was a good choice really because the location of this place is just wonderful. So are the owners. And the "Full Irish" breakfasts along with cereals and toasts are great, too.
OK. our room was a bit cramped with a double and a single bed and it was a bit warm when coming back in the evenings but these already were the only downsides and we didn't care much. However, the third bed was great to sit down admiring the views of Howth, Dublin port, the southside and Bull Island. I could sit there for ages just staring outside. And at least the warm room in the evening provided us with a not too cold waking up in the morning...
Unique Quality: The owners of the B&B, John and Delia Devlin, are great. They made us feel very welcome, after a while we felt like "part of the family" and it was hard to eat the great breakfast because of too much talking going on ;)
The location of the B&B is perfect. A 10-15 mts bus ride away from the city centre (Abbey Street). Busses run frequently all day. The next Dart stop is easy to reach by the same bus, too. The sea is in front of your door basically. Ferries and ducks greet you in the mornings. It's a great place to escape Dublin's busy city centre.
If you come by car you can park it in the front yard at no extra costs.
Directions: Take Bus 130 from Abbey Street, get off the 1st or 2nd stop after Clontarf Bus Depot and walk a few metres.
25 irish pounds per person(double occupancy)
Unique Quality: Very nice B&B on the river, 10 min bus from town, this is in a quiet area, beautiful walks on the river, Breakfast, and a very nice host. There is 6 rooms to rent here so big groups are not a problem either.
