The Space

Our lovely Bed & Breakfast, situated one mile from the Dublin City Centre, offers comfortable clean bed and breakfast accommodation for tourists and holidaymakers.

In an ideal location, it is situated close to the National Botanic Gardens, Airport, Irish pubs and bus stops, etc. It is ideally situated for the weary guests who wish to relax and enjoy their holidays.

Built at the beginning of the 20th century, the house has recently been expanded and modernized throughout, keeping all the original features. Situated on a quiet leafy tree lined street, just off the main airport/city link road, it is ideal for speedy access to the city and airport.

All our rooms are en-suite, offer tea and coffee facilities and are non-smoking. We also offer toiletries for your convenience. One can retire to the patio with a cup of Bewley's Irish coffee and enjoy a smoke there if they are so inclined.

A marvellous breakfast of fresh fruit, cereals, yoghurts or the famous "Irish Breakfast" will raise your spirits and energy for a visit to Dublin Castle; Kilmainham Hospital; Trinity College or other famous Dublin landmarks. A stroll in the Dublin's National Botanic Gardens located nearby can be very invigorating too.

For a long vacation or just a mini break, we cater for the guest’s every need.

  • We loved everything about this place! The house was very sweet and everyone in the family was lovely with a great sense of humor. The room was very comfortable and the food was excellent. The b&b is located in a great, quiet neighborhood near the beautiful Botanical garden and not far from downtown Dublin. The cute dogs made us feel even more at home. We would definitely return!

  • Last weekend we stayed with a group of international friends at Jack's B&B. We can only be very positive about the stay. Although we arrived just after midnight because of a flight delay, Jack still welcomed us in a very friendly way and he didn't mind at all to show the house and everything right away. Jack made sure everything was comfortable for us and every morning a nice breakfast was served. Jack also has a few little dogs, which was very nice to play with. If we come back to Dublin one day, we would for sure stay at Jack again. Thanks!

  • I spent good time at Jack's home. He's so friendly and you can talk about everything. He helps you as much as possible.
    The room was clean everyday; and the most important thing was when Jack asked you if you did sleep well.

    All home is perfect to stay (breakfast included), they were welcoming and friendly during my stay.
    If one day I go to Dublin again, I'm pretty sure that I will go with them again.

    Thank you so much for everything :D

  • We are a family of 5 who had a delightful stay at Friendly B & B. Jack and Audrey were most warm and welcoming. They are clearly conscientious and are committed to providing an all-around positive experience. The full Irish breakfast was personalized, and Audrey was attentive to our preferences. Both Jack and Audrey provided helpful transportation advice and gave us great suggestions for things to do in the area. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Chili, Peanut, and Mandy (the cute trio of dogs) were an important part of the friendly experience, too. Rave reviews for Jack, Audrey, and Friendly B&B!

  • It was very pleasant to stay at Jack's House. The most I liked the Jack's motto "my home is your home"... and it was so. The house and rooms are cosy, nice Irish breakfast and the hosts are friendly and helpful. I would be glad to meet Audrey and Jack again. Thank you!
