At only €75 B&B what more could you ask for!. Good location, right near a bus stop into City Centre. Lovely friendly people, spacious clean room with ensuite. Fine breakfast choice the next day & lovely dining room. Highly recommend Griffith House

We recently stayed 2 nights at Griffith House at the start of our trip around Ireland. We found the location very convenient - only a short taxi ride from the airport on arrival, and an easy bus ride into the city from the nearby bus stop. Our room was comfortable, had tea and coffee making facilities, and had a good sized bathroom, and we found it quiet. We had a lovely breakfast each morning and found Eugene and his daughter very helpful without being intrusive.

Room Tip: If you are a bigger person, book the room with the large bathroom. On arrival we had a choice of a l...

Griffith House is situated on a corner in a lovely, wide, tree-lined street. It is on the bus route into the city and 15 minutes walk from a small shopping centre (supermarket, pharmacy, take-away food). My husband and I stayed there for 2 nights in May. We were given the annexe at the back of the property and were able to park our car securely in the back yard. The annexe had a queen size bed, 2 single beds, a sofa, TV and a free standing heater which, being very cold at the time, we made good use of. The small en suite shower and toilet were adequate. Everything was clean. We were disappointed that the free wifi didn't reach the annexe and it was unreliable when I tried using it in the main house. We were happy with the choice of cereals and a cooked Irish breakfast.
Unfortunately we didn't find Eugene very interactive or friendly. My husband became unwell the night of our arrival and when I asked Eugene the next morning if he could tell me where I'd find a doctor's surgery, he was dismissive saying he didn't know because he never went to a doctor. An hour later, however, he came back to us with directions to a surgery.
All in all, while the location is very convenient and the annexe was clean and comfortable I would not stay here again because of the unfriendliness of the host. Travelling can be very stressful especially when one is in a country foreign to one's own and unfriendliness of accommodation hosts is a stress that shouldn't be there. (We never did see Ou who is also mentioned in advertising for Griffith House.)

Though in a great location, the room was very small and every noise in the house could be heard. Additionally, the shower water was ice cold in the morning. There was a hot pot in the room but only one tea bag (lots of instant coffee). Breakfast was plentiful and good.

Just what we needed. Ashort bus ride into city and even shorter one to airport.
Room was comfortable and Mr Maguire was very informative

I stayed with the Maguires for the first two nights of my trip and the very last. Picked from a package operator's listings and for its proximity to a cousin's house in the North Strand, I found the place clean, comfortable, and convenient. I had the smallest room the first two nights; the transom window opened to the fresh air took some getting used to. I had the large en suite Room 5 upon my return; by then an open skylight was a regular companion. Parking was easy at all hours. I delighted in breakfast (best pudding of the trip, tomatoes cut to two slices). My guess is that Mrs. Maguire is from Thailand. Lounge pictures of the couple show them with an elephant in the jungle (not the Phoenix Park). Through the French doors of the dining room, one can see a golden Buddha resting on a ledge high in the hall before the kitchen. Mounted all around are carvings of celestial musicians. Finishing each morning's tea with a little contemplation of harmonies was a fine preparation for each day's bustle.

Not all the rooms are actually in the house. Our party was split- half in the house and half in another building behind the house. Those inside were freezing and didn't have any warm water. Room was super cramped as well. Outdside was creepy being lead behind the house. The room was very large with three beds though and had its own bathroom. We called to inform them we would arrive late but when we got there he was put out and told us we woke him up. Breakfast was nothing to rave about either. Definitely our least favorite stay in Ireland.
