“The best place I ever stay in Dublin!!”
Reviewed 1 November 2013

This place is superbly awesome. Terry takes care of his guest very well. The place is extremely clean. The breakfast is great. The value is so tremendous that I really hope they are making some money because I want them to stay open for my next trip!!! It's just so unbelievably good.

Stayed here for 2 nights as my wife was running the Dublin marathon.
The room was lovely, clean and warm but what made the stay was the fantastic staff.
Terry, Eric and Martina were so helpful and couldn't do enough for us.
We are due to go back to Dublin again soon and will certainly try to stay here again.
Thanks again x

Spent two nights here. Close to the RDS. Takes no less than 20 minutes fast walk. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Room and bathroom were of nice size. Shower was small even for me. Nice big breakfast. Floor was creaky so if you were on the first level you could hear the people upstairs walking around. I did find that my room was to cold for my comfort. Tea and coffee provided in room. Is outside of the center city.
I wouldn't personally return to stay here if ever in the area again but it is solely based on personal preference. This has nothing to do with the lodge. I just found that I prefer a hotel that is managed 24 hours if I need something. Great for someone that like B&B accomodations!

My family stayed here for a week and everyday was a joy! Terry and the rest of the staff were exceptional in every way. They helped us plan our time, cooked amazing breakfasts to order, and made us feel truly welcome everyday. When we go back, I can't imagine staying anywhere else. It will feel like home (without the dishes!)

My husband and I came to Ireland for a week, half in Dublin. We were really pleased with Donnybrook Hall - clean, comfortable room, great breakfast, very helpful staff. It's located outside the city center a bit, but it is only a few minutes' walk to the bus that goes straight to St. Stephen's Green in only 10-15 minutes. The staff is there to help you get around the city and plan your visit, which was a wonderful concierge service I wasn't expecting. Overall, a wonderful part of our trip to Ireland!

Room Tip: We were at the room in the far back of the garden, which was lovely and very peaceful. The only thi...

Stayed here for a night last week with a friend as we were going to concert in the O2. I had booked a twin room and we were amazed to find our room was actually two rooms with four beds in it. The room was excellent. Bathroom isn't huge but perfectly adequate with shower and very clean. Beds were SO comfortable. There was tea/coffee making facilities and a tv in both rooms. Great breakfast here with plenty of choice. The absolute jewel in this B+B is the staff. Nothing is too much trouble and so helpful! A big thank you to Debbie who was just fantastic to us. O Connells restaurant around the corner was recommended by B+B and it was really good.They do a special menu for guests of Donnybrook Hall and it was super value and very tasty. I wouldn't hesitate to stay in Donnybrook Hall again or to recommend for anyone to stay here.

Hi Deemur,

Thank you for writing up such a lovely review about Donnybrook Hall on trip advisor. It was a pleasure to be able to help you both out (especially with it being so miserable outside), I'm glad you enjoyed your meal in O'Connells we're lucky to have it so near and to be able to work closely with them to provide guests with such a nice menu.

Positive feedback is always a pleasure to receive and we are delighted that you had such a nice comfortable stay with us. Should you decide to return to Dublin for another getaway call us directly and we will be sure to help you out.

Warm wishes

Debbie

A few days ago we stayed in this lovely B&B. We enjoyed our stay which results especially from the very caring staff.
- Sandwiches for day tours
- Explanations of how to get to places we wanted to visit and when we should best leave to get there on time
- Sending our postcards when we didn't have the time to get stamps
They took care of everything we needed. Thanks a lot for this!
But back to the B&B: It is located in a quiet area which nevertheless can be reached easily by bus from the city center and via aircoach from airport (Stop: Donnybrook Road).
The room was more spacious than expected and had only a single disadvantage: The WLAN was unfortunetly not very steady. This problem could easily be solved by installing a WLAN-Repeater.
The breakfast was very tasty. But one should keep in mind that it is freshly prepared, hence it can take some time until the breakfast is served.
As a whole, a stay in the Donnybrook Hall can be highly recommended.
