Bridge House Dublin
Ranked #136 of 149 Dublin B&B and Inns
Reviewed 27 February 2014

the shower door was broken as in one part of three was not there at all so every time either of us had a shower the water was going out on the floor.this meant we had to keep drying the floor with the towels to stop the water going through the floor down into a Resteraunt below us.we asked about it been fixed after the first night.supposed to be fixed by day three never touched by the time we left on the eight day.other than that the room was what it was a double room.ok for the price i suppose

Room Tip: fix the shower door

We stayed over a night and it was a horrible experience. The staff was rude, They chased us out because we arrived too early, and although we had a long journey, also denied us the use of the toilet before the specific check in time. The toilets have probably not been serviced in a decade it is really stinky. I think the building itself has potential , and wasting a prime spot like this seems like a crime.

Room Tip: There is probably no good room.

I stayed here three nights over Near Years, and it was ok. Nothing really to write home about. There are circular stairs that take you to the top (where my room was) which are a bit narrow, so it might be a point of concern for those who may have a lot of luggage. The beds were comfortable and it was clean, but bring your own shampoo and soap. If you are looking for an inexpensive place to stay that is near the excitement of Temple Bar, this isn't a bad choice. It was awesome hearing the bells from Christ Church in my room, especially at midnight on New Years Day. Front desk staff are friendly. You need to leave your key with them every time you go out, but someone is always sitting at the desk no matter what time of day so it isn't an issue. Overall noise level was good from the top floor where we were. Besides the bells, I didn't hear any street noise.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a lower floor. Trudging luggage up and down those narrow stairs is no picnic.

Right, reading the reviews for this hotel it seems some people are fairly happy because of the value for money and some people are disappointed. I guess it depends on which room you get....I cannot believe some people would be happy to sleep in rooms 4 or 10 (the two rooms that I have seen). True the hotel is very well located, fairly clean and (surprisingly) does offer free WIFI (I would not expect that form this kind of hotel) but for the rest is absolutely terrible.
The rooms I was give faced the backyard and are right above some restaurants extractor fan, the rooms smell terrible (especially room 4 which is on the first floor).
If that was not enough the window is single glazed and does not close properly, meaning that you get a constant draft of cold air from outside....on the top of that in MY ROOM THE RADIATOR NEVER SWITCHED ON although I have asked it several times and for several times I have been told they would have switched on the heating "later on" (the last time I asked was one o'clock at night and the outside temperature was about 1C).

Room Tip: Avoid rooms 4 and 10 (single rooms)

I paid 34 euro to stay one night in this hotel, which is a fantastic deal for Dublin. It's located at the heart of Temple Bar, which is a prime location for seeing the city or for going out at night. The room was clean and average size. The bathroom was large. It's a pretty basic room, and the floors were slightly slanted, but it was a great room for the price. Would highly recommend to students or others traveling on a budget. It's not high scale, but it was cozy enough and got the job done.

Stayed here for one night in December as a last-minute decision and rented a triple room for the incredible price of €37. Genuinely could not believe my eyes when I saw the price. Booked on the hotel's website (about 2 hours in advance of arriving!) and rang to confirm the payment had gone through, which it had, and the receptionist was very helpful and polite.


The location couldn't be better if you want to be right in the centre of town, you really are, and Parliament Street is great from the point of view that it's beside Temple Bar but you're unlikely to slip up on vomit on a Sunday morning because it's just off the main cobbled streets and rows of pubs, but there are a bunch of great restaurants beside you (including the super cheap Ciao Bella Roma which has a midweek earlybird menu of 2 courses plus a glass of wine for something like €9???!!). A 10 second walk from the liffey and about a 10 minute walk from the DART so tourists if you're not renting a car and you want to stay central there's no better place.


The hotel is dark, sort of dingy, very higgeldy piggeldy, and I'd agree with another review I read which described it more as a house that someone had decided to turn into a hotel. Honestly though if you're not looking for anything fancy it's perfect. On arrival I was given a key, told it was a 24hr reception and that they keep the keys when you go out, there's a buzzer on the main door which is a decent idea given that the street is full of revellers at night so you won't have any strangers walking in! Free tea and coffee in the lounge if you want it as well. My triple room (no. 6) was pretty big, very very comfy beds, clean sheets, clean towels, clean floor, clean bathroom and decent shower as well. That room faces out onto the street which is quite loud but I'm a deep sleeper so didn't bother me at all, might be something to consider if you're not, though.

The 2 star rating is very harsh, while it might be a 2 star hotel, it really deserves 4 stars on tripadvisor for what it is. I will definitely stay here again, much better than spending roughly the same amount on a taxi home and if you don't plan on spending much time in the hotel other than for sleeping you cannot ask for better value, just hope they stay in business!

Room Tip: No. 6 looks out onto the main street, try to avoid if you're a light sleeper, go for it if you l...
