“A comfortable place in Dublin”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2012

Wonderful traditional Irish breakfast delighted my day in Dublin. Also, Una's warm welcome and hospitality made me feel relax. The location is perfect for bus travelers to commute to and from city center.
The room is a clean and comfortable but the shower machine is loud and old. The cups and kettle in the room had dust on it, and this probably the only disadvantages in the room.

This is the second time we have stayed with Una, and we all agree that should we return to Dublin we would go back to Saint Martha's. Una is warm and fun to be around. She offers of where to eat on days the pubs are jammed packed after a hurling match. The transportation is great, and the neighborhood, quiet and pretty.

Saint Martha's B&B is our favorite place to stay while in Dublin. Aside from being well situated via public transport between the airport and is close to the city center, making it easy to do and see the things we wanted either by foot or bus, it is located in a lovely and quiet neighborhood near great places to eat, as close to the Botanical Gardens as well.

The B&B itself is welcoming and has a warm, homelike feeling. The rooms are nice and well kept, breakfast is always wonderful, with options from a full Irish breakfast to lighter and even veggie options. Una is a warm, wonderful person, always making us feel at home and quickly comfortable, and has always been a help when we've needed some.

We've stayed at Saint Martha's B&B 3 times now, and it is always our first choice when looking for a place to stay in Dublin.

St. Martha's B&B..

What a truly delightful B&B. On arrival we were made to feel very welcome. The place is spotless! Very comfortable rooms. Breakfast was excellent with full range of cereals etc. Very quiet and not too far from the town centre. I would highly recommend this B&B.. Dublin was fantastic. We will be coming back next year..

I stayed at the Saint Martha's B&B for 2 months and was very happy with that decision! The B&B itself is located in a nice and rather quiet neighboorhood in Drumcondra. It's only a 2 minute walk to the next bus stops. From there, it's a 10-minute-bus-ride to O'Connell-Street and the stops are served in about 5 minute intervals.
The rooms vary from rather small (as you would expect from a Dublin-City B&B) to really airy and comfy. All rooms are very clean.
Una will make every effort to make your stay as pleasant as possible.

found out about this b&b from 3 irish teachers in poughkeepsie,ny,usa. una was very accomodating letting our group in before check-in time because our plane landed @7am and we took the bus from the airport, dropped our bags and had a cup of coffee and went sight-seeing. came back later for a little nap and went for dinner and nite-life. the place is immaculate and she is a bundle of info and energy. i can't wait for a return this october

As they say in Irish "A hundred thousand welcomes" . Well OK technically there was only one, but from the first Una made us feel welcomed. Nothing was too much trouble. "If you need anything just ask" The room was clean, the beds comfortable, the shower was hot, the TV worked and the all important tea/coffee making facilities were there. Breakfast first day "What'll ye have, there's fresh fruit, juice, yoghurt, cereals" and then "Would you like the full Irish?
Quality and Quantity! Would we go back - you bet!
