Welcome to Botanic View Dublin Bed and Breakfast , ideally located in Glasnevin, Dublin 9. After 13 years of successful B&B trading on Botanic Road, we have now (as of November 2008) moved our B&B to our new location just around the corner, to 3 Iona Road.
At No. 1 Iona Rd you will find our short & long term self catering accommodation. Both houses are two totally refurbished period houses.

Glasnevin is accessed via FINGLAS or BALLYMUN exits from the M50 motorway, which surrounds Dublin boundary.

Estuvimos alojados en casa de Bernie y nuestra experiencia ha sido fantástica. Bernie es una gran anfitriona, nos dio facilidades en todo (cambios de última hora, consejos y información para movernos por Dublín y alrededores, tanto a nivel de transportes como señas, mapas, lugares para comer o tomar buenas cervezas). Apesar de compartir la casa con alguna persona más, no suposo ningún problema. Es una casa cómoda, ubicada en un barrio que apesar de estar alejado del centro, nos aportó la tranquilidad que buscábamos después de cada día intenso.
