Rathview House is close to downtown Dublin. Also close to the airport and ferries. We were made a nice basket to go in lieu of breakfast since we had to leave early to catch the ferry to Hollyhead early in the morning.

First night in Ireland...and I couldn't be happier... Rooms was small, but very nice and clean. For breakfast I could choose, what I like. The porridge was delicious. And lady (owner) was perfect and very kind. What is more...it is near Dublin AirPort. :)
