    Irish Hospitality in the Heart of Dublin!


    While we were in Ireland we became 2 of the "volcano victims" which meant that we inadvertently extended our stay by 3 days. It was a nerve-racking experience. We weren't sure when we'd get to come home, rumors swirled it may even be 6 months before we could fly out. The staff at Kilronan House were AMAZING to us. When I mentioned that we wouldn't be able to pay for our last few days until after we returned home, we were told "We'll not turn you out." which, of course, did wonders for our morale! And we did pay immediately upon our return.

    Our stay in this homey Georgian B&B (located smack dab in the Georgian area of Dublin) allowed us to visit the following in about a 10- or 15-minute walk:
    St. James' Park
    Trinity College (Book of Kells)
    Merrion Square (where Oscar Wilde once lived with his parents)
    Temple Bar district (for wanton nights of drinking!)
    Brown & Thomas on the famous shopping Mecca of Grafton Street (there's a Ladurée here, whoopee!)
    St. Patrick's Cathedral
    Christchurch Cathedral

    We didn't visit here but these are also available within a 10-minute walk:
    Guinness Storehouse
    Hop On Hop Off bus
    Dublin Castle

    And if the symphony's your thing, the National Concert Hall is JUST next door.

    A bit further is Kilmainham Gaol (if you're at ALL interested in history this is a must do for you), the General Post Office (one of the major settings of the 1916 Easter Rising), and Connolly Train Station (hey, we're Connollys; it'd be a crime if we didn't stop by).

    Unique Quality: We received a deal of only 590 euro for 7 nights which is about $57 for each of us (exchange rate is currently $1.34/1 euro).

    Full Irish breakfast is included in the price. There were so many options to choose on the menu: black & white pudding
    porridge (Irish oatmeal)
    Irish bacon
    eggs fixed any way you'd like (including boiled)
    broiled tomatoes
    soda bread
    white bread taste
    assortment of jams
    REAL butter
    plain yogurt w/fresh fruit
    plain yogurt w/banana
    pancakes w/maple syrup
    orange juice
    grapefruit juice

    We'd tried every permutation possible for breakfast but there just weren't enough days (despite a 10-day stay)!

    There is also complimentary (FREE!) internet access along with flat screen TVs, phone, hair dryer, tea & coffee making facilities, AND iron & ironing board (not mentioned on their website).

    Every evening we were greeted with fresh hot coffee in the sitting room and lovely hospitality from the staff (Cormac, Romy, and Anne were just lovely). In the sitting room is a beautiful Waterford Crystal chandelier (which you can see in the bottom right-hand corner of photo#5) and, we're told, a 20,000 euro painting in the breakfast room!

    The Kilronan House


    I believe that the price was approx. 60 euro pp/night and includes breakfast.

    Unique Quality: This B & B is located only about 2 blocks from St. Stephens Green. Staff was great and breakfast was great.

You must stay at the Kilronan House!

by TripAdvisor Member mkelleyGuilfordCT

Picture yourself as the invited guest of an Irish gentleman in a Georgian House in Dublin....nothing beats the Kilronan House for warmth, charm, and value.

It is rare to find a lovely and comfortable small hotel or B&B (15 rooms) in a major city that is centrally located to all of the attractions, yet also on a quiet, distinguished avenue. We easily walked from the Kilronan House all over the city and returned wearily to our Georgian gem away from the bustle.

Terry, the host, is a charming innkeeper with a brogue and a twinkle in his eye, who is attentive to his guests but not intrusive.

The breakfasts -- my goodness, why aren't the Irish all overweight?
Course after course of delectable choices in a beautiful, intimate breakfast room.

Oh -- and don't forget to visit the rest of the country -- it is a jewel. An emerald, truly.

Very heartful place

by A TripAdvisor Member

Having stayed at several (really bad AND expensive) guesthouses in Dublin, I finally went to Kilronan House in autumn 2004.

It's the best guesthouse I ever had the luck to find in Dublin within the last 10 years. Do not miss it.

Great Experience

by A TripAdvisor Member

Spent 7 nights at the Kilronan House (B&B) and couldn't have been treated more warmly by the owner and his staff. Clean rooms with a very modern bathroom which was supplied with soap and shampoo and with bath and hand towels, oh, yes, a wash cloth. Breakfast was first class, juice, fresh fruit, yogurt, oatmeal, dry cerals, eggs, pancakes, bacon, ham, etc. ps you don't have to order all of the breakfast items each day....

nice stay

by A TripAdvisor Member

We enjoyed our stay at Kilronan House. Breakfast was great everyday, many options to choose from. We stayed here at the end of our 18 day trip in Ireland and Scotland and it was very pleasant as our beds were by far the most comfortable that we stayed in. The front room is kind of noisy since it's on a busy street, but it wasn't an issue since everything else was great. I would highly recommend staying here.

Best choice

by A TripAdvisor Member

My husband had planned a surprise trip to Dublin, 4 nights, and he couldn't have chosen a better place to stay than Kilronan House.
It was great to be close to the center but in a quiet area. Great breakfast, excellent pancakes. Clean and cozy room. We didn't feel like staying in a hotel, but in a home.
Thanks to Terry, Katie & rest of the staff for a wonderful stay, you were really friendly and helpful.

A little gem

by A TripAdvisor Member

Kilronan House is a little gem in the quiet, Georgian area of Dublin within walking distance to the city centre, or if you're feeling lazy, bus services from Leeson Street just around the corner. Also, the airport shuttle bus drops off and picks up on Leeson Street (7 Euros) and the #746 Dublin Bus from the airport also drops off and picks up on Leeson Street (1.60 Euros - see the Dublin Bus website for a timetable).

The guesthouse itself is spotlessly clean and welcoming, the breakfasts are yummy and Terry & staff are very friendly and helpful. I would heartily recommend Kilronan to anybody visiting Dublin and definitely plan to return. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Very Hospitable

by A TripAdvisor Member

We were made to feel very welcome from the moment I rang to notify of our late arrival to the moment we left. Nothing was too much bother and often it was offered before you asked. Advice on Dublin was cheerfully given and good advice into the bargain.

Our room was comfortable and clean with an excellent shower. There were slight problems with the location of the sink as the bathroom door opened across it but, that apart, the room was OK.

Breakfast on the other hand was wonderful. The menu was extensive with a choice of aperitif (porridge with stewed apple, fresh friut, cereal or yogurt) and main course (full irish with a choice of fried, poached or scrambled eggs, smoked salmon and scrambled eggs or omelete (again with a variety of fillings). Together with fruit juice, coffee or tea and toast and marmalade or jam and you were set up for the day.

Kilronan House is fairly well located being within walking distance (St. Stevens Green a 5 minute stroll and Trinity College another 5 minutes away) of the city centre. It has a lot to commend it and I congratulate all involved with it's running. Many thanks for an enjoyable weekend. Next time, perhaps you can ensure that the right team wins.

Need suggestions from Dubliners or those familiar with Dublin. Looking for nice hotel in City Centre (Dublin 2 preferred), at a reasonable rate for two nights following a tour in early September. Walking to distance to attraction, Trinity, Grafton St, Temple Bar, etc. Two people. Considering the Holiday Inn City Centre, but have read a review that was not very flattering and referred to its location as a "ghetto" and not very safe. Any suggestions from those "in the know" will be appreciated.

I have stayed twice at the Best Western Central Hotel on Exchequer Street. Lovely, quaint hotel with wonderful staff. Full breakfast included, and an easy walk to all the sites you want to see. If needed there is a wash-and-fold with same day service just around the corner on St. George's Street.

Re: Dublin Hotels

The Holiday In Hotel itself is absolutely fine - it's location is not great however.

It's located on a street that I certainly wouldn't go near at night time ( I come from Dublin).

I suggest staying away from it for that reason and stick closer to the Temple Bar /Grafton St area if possible. These are busy areas and you will have no problems at all.

have a great time

Thanks to all that responded about a suitable hotel in Dublin. Have decided on Jury's Christchurch based on recommendation from a Dublin resident. I appreciate your help!!
