I found this B&B by chance some time ago and think myself to be very lucky to have found a host that makes me feel like i am at home when i am away. The rooms are always clean and warm and there is a great breakfast. If you need information about bus times, local restaurants, places to see Tom or Sally Ann are a wealth of knowledge about their local area. It is no wonder I stay here time and time again.

Room Tip: Book earky.

This wonderful B&B was the final destination on our ten day visit to Ireland. The accommodations were comfortable and cozy, within easy walking distance of a good restaurant, and right down the road from the Dublin Airport car rental return area. It's a perfect location for those early morning departures. Tom and Sally graciously served the four of us an early hot breakfast the day we left, even though we asked them not to. Tom and Sally have anticipated everything their guests may need, from ready to heat soup in the dining room pantry, to a scale in your bedroom to weigh your suitcase! Please consider this lovely B&B if you're looking for a REAL home-like atmosphere in Dublin.

Room Tip: Ask for room in the back of the house, away from the noisy bus stop out front.

Tom was an excellent host. He offered numerous suggestions that were very helpful. The breakfasts were delicious and the accommodations were roomy and comfortable. Proximity to the airport is very good. Tom's son did an excellent job "subbing" for Tom when we arrived.

Room Tip: Flyover is a short walk to the bus which can take you to center city.

We recently spent 3 nights at Flyover B&B in Dublin.We had travelled from Canada and these were the final 3 days of our trip. It was very conveniently located outside the busy city centre, in a safe neighbourhood, but easily accessible by bus. Just cross the street to the bus stop and any bus will drop you at the centre of town on O'Connell Street for 2.15 Euros. The number 16 bus takes you right back to the front door of Flyover in the evening. Heading to the airport, on our way home, was a quick drive straight up Swords Road.
I had asked for a double room (2 people) and was pleasantly surprised that we had 2 adjoining rooms, one with a king size bed and the other with a twin. It gave us that much more space to spread out. Both rooms had flat screen tvs, nice to catch up on the late news in the evening. The rooms were very clean as was our wash room, nice hot shower. In the evening, my husband would go downstairs to gets us a hot chocolate and a cookie. There was also a selection of teas and coffee available.
The breakfast was lovely, the full Irish, and/or cereals, juice, yoghurt, toast, Irish soda bread.
Tom, our host, is a very friendly, calm fellow. He helped us with our bags, directions and answered all our questions. He has a computer and printer in the front hall for the guests’ use. We printed out our tickets for the Hop-on Hop-off bus and got a 10% discount for pre-buying online.
Thanks Tom, we really enjoyed our stay.

My wife and I loved this bnb! Tom was great at making sure we had everything we needed. We loved having snacks and tea available at anytime during our stay. Another great thing about this bnb is its location, only 5 minutes from the airport which makes it a great place to stay when you are flying out the next day. Also conveniently close to town and outside enough that you get the Dublin neighborhood experience. We will be staying here again on our next trip!

Tom and Sally Ann couldn't be nicer. We stayed 2-nights at the front end of our trip and the last night of our trip. The house and rooms were modern, spotless and very comfortable, food plentiful and delicious with tea, coffee and cereal available 24/7. Our room was equipped with a hairdryer and iron/ironing board along with a mirror close to an outlet for blowdrying my hair, not always the case as we traveled. There was also a big screen TV with a nice collection of DVD's in the room. A nice touch was a room safe. Tom carried our way too many and much too heavy bags upstairs. Both Tom and Sally Ann were very helpful with directions along with taxi and bus instructions even making a taxi reservation for our departure. Would highly recommend. Thanks Tom and Sally Ann!!!!!

We stayed for 2 nights at the end of our driving trip around Ireland.

The B&B is on a main road close to the airport with a bus stop right out and off street parking.

The bus out front takes you to either Dublin City or the Airport with minimal fuss.

Tom is a brilliant host, nothing is too much trouble for him and out of all of our trip of Ireland he was the only one to offer to take our bags up the 2 flights of stairs. He even booked a taxi for us to get to the Airport in plenty of time.

The rooms are modern, bright and comfortable, and even have a room safe. A nice big screen TV is provided and there is also a collection of DVD's in the room for you to watch if you want.

The dining room is open 24 hours for you to have cereal, and there was every sort of tea, coffee or hot chocolate for you to choose from.

The breakfast was delicious and huge!!

There is a computer and printer available to check your flight and print out your boarding pass if necessary. There are also scales to weigh your luggage. Very helpful!

Even though our room was at the front of the B&B, the traffic noise was minimal.
