Ballsbridge Townhouse - Merrion Road, Dublin
Not what we had in mind
This was not the hotel for us. Coming from another country (US) we were in need of help with how to get around, where to eat, etc. These accomodations had none of that, we were totally on our own. Our room, which thankfully they moved us when we requested, was on the ground floor, right next to the lobby with plenty of noise and no privacy. 2nd room was much better. They had no electrical converters for US outlets, so no flat iron, no cell chargers, etc. We had to traipse all over the city to find our own, wasting precious vacation time, with no apologies whatsoever. No one ever once asked us how our stay was. The only food nearby was a vending machine that was out of order. Really the only thing they told us about the area on checking in was "this is not a b&b, you're on your own for breakfast. Not even one recommendation. Fortunately, there is a wonderful hotel across the street with a great breakfast buffet and a pub. It saved the day. The price was only very slightly higher than what we were paying at the townhouse. Not sure, but a soccer tournament in town may have escalated the price during our stay, but the price was totally outrageous for what we got.

Great Location
Our room was clean, very quiet as it was at the back, but the bed was two singles pulled together to make a double so it had an uncomfortable ridge in the middle. The room was very bright with a nice bathroom and lots of storage. The location is in a safe area close to all the Embassy's, perfect for sightseeing, and walking distance to lots of great pubs and good places to eat. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We would certainly stay here again.

Not a B&B
This is NOT a B&B or even a 'B' although it looked like a B&B on the site. It is part of Stay City apartments. Once you know that, you can decide if that sort of thing suits you. I was surprised to discover its nature when I arrived but the arrangement was fine for me and for 10 euro extra, I could park my car there for the night. By Dublin street charges, that's fine. The house appears to have been newly refurbished and enlarged and in dry-lining the walls, it has resulted in a very warm house but one in which sounds echo and resound. The hall retains the Edwardian flavour of the house and it has a most suitable carpet! The place is SO convenient to RDS, to buses to town etc.
