“Best little b&b around!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2012 via mobile

I had such a wonderful time,I stayed for two weeks, Margaret and Eugene are so helpful! They really make you feel at comfortable and homey. They have maps, tickets and a wealth of knowledge to make sure your stay in Dublin is exemplary. They are very accommodating and it was like being home away from home. I did not feel like a stranger for very long. The rooms are the perfect size and very clean. Each room has its own bathroom and shower, a tv and there is access to free Internet. There is also plenty of space to hang clothes and store items. They have a private car park in case your renting a vehicle however if you plan to take the bus there is a stop 20 seconds walk from the gate. Takes you right into city centre. A great day in Dublin starts with a great breakfast and Margaret cooks a better breakfast then any cafe in town! I recomend the full irish. It is a quiet little neighborhood very close to the botanical gardens and glasnevin cemetery. Also just a 15 minute drive to the airport. It is fairly quiet I live in the country so the noise level here was hardly noticeable. There are also a few good places to eat and shop within a 10 minute walking distance. So if you plan to stay in Dublin, I would highly recommend you stay here! I can't praise it enough!

We stayed at this B&B the first and last nights of our trip. Upon arriving in Dublin at @8:00 AM, we headed for the B&B hoping we could leave our luggage. One of the rooms was ready and we were able to check in early to our delight. We parked our car in their carpark as it's a 30 second walk to the bus stop for the city center. The B&B is also a short walk from the national botanical gardens (free) which our hosts Margaret & Eugene recommended-they were right- well worth the visit. Also a short walk away is the Addison Lounge/Restaurant with good food and great Guiness. Margaret & Eugene invited us to join them and their friends in the bar, and one of their friends Jimmy, a guitarist/singer entertained us with Irish songs for over an hour- a very special night. Breakfasts were very good, the rooms extremely clean, and plenty of hot water. The rooms are on the small size, but you are in the city, so it's a good trade off. The personal attention, friendliness and helpful suggestions make this a great choice and we will not hesitate to stay here again.

My family and I (6 adults) roadtripped across Ireland in the fall of 2010 (September/October). We stayed in a different B&B each night of our 10-day vacation. Aghadoe House was our 2nd-to-last night in Ireland. It's located on the north side of the city, within walking distance to the (free!) botanical gardens, and on a main busline. The city center is a short, easy 10-minute bus ride away. Buses are a great way to travel around Dublin--they are clean, convenient, safe, and affordable. Eugene and Margaret allowed us to check in early (late morning) to drop off our cars (in free, off-street parking) so that we could explore the city all day. They even helped us to navigate the bus routes (by telling us which routes to take to get to where we wanted) and sold us 2-day tickets to the Hop On-Hop Off Dublin Bus Tours (very convenient to see the tourist attractions in Dublin). Our room was on the 2nd floor with a window to the street. It was clean, but small (but really what do you expect in the city?). It had a queen-size bed and bathroom ensuite. Unfortunately, the bed was not so comfortable, but it sufficed. Irish breakfast was served the next morning in the first floor dining room. We discussed our travels with Margaret and Eugene over breakfast. We all wished we would have booked this B&B for 2 nights, but we already had a reservation at another B&B for our last night in Ireland. Margaret and Eugene were super helpful in making a phone call to our next B&B (which was also in Dublin) to see if we could check in early again to ditch our cars. Overall, it was a lovely stay and we would gladly stay here again!

We spent two nights at Aghadoe House and it was a pleasant experience. The twin room was somewhat small, but comfortable enough. The location is very close to the city centre, and there was a bus stop just steps from the house. Eugene was a great host, and the breakfast was very good.

If you're from North America travelling with an Apple laptop and you're having trouble connecting to the WiFi, let Eugene know and bring the laptop next to the wireless router. For some reason, the computer would not find the signal until I was right up on top of it, but then I could return to my room with a full signal. Eugene has this is common with Americans and Canadians.

Very close to the airport. Good location in terms of restaurants, variety stores, and pubs.

The room wasn't so big but very clean and comfortable.
The location is extremely good: you can take a bus or walk 15 minutes to reach the city center! Very good irish breakfast (loved it!) and the host was very nice with us, he really helped us!
Love staying here, and if I'll go back to Dublin I'll totally stay here again!

This was our first experience of B & B's in Ireland. We arrived and were warmly welcomed with a cup of tea. The room, however was quite small as we anticipated with close to the city accommodation. The bed was less than comfortable. However, our concern was openly listened to and we were able to change to another room and had a better bed and bathroom. The breakfast was acceptable. The best aspect of the B & B is the proximity to Dublin transport being within easy distance of the airport, next to bus transport to the city and within a few minutes of a very good pub.
