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.

This listing is for a double en-suite room. If you're looking for more than one room or need a bigger room please have a look at our other listings.

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.

  • Exactly as described, spotlessly clean and friendly, and very convenient for the city centre. I would not hesitate in recommending to any future visitors, a very friendly home from home in Dublin!

  • James and Audrey are very good hosts. My flight was delayed and I didn't inform thm that but they waited and welcame me until almost midnight. The room is very comfortable and quiet, and I had rather sound sleep. The location has easy access to city center and airport. I like the delicious Irish breakfast that Audrey made. James helped me buy Thai take away in the evening. Many thanks for them!

  • I really enjoyed staying at Jack's and Audrey's b&b. Yes, it's a proper family-run b&b, with en-suite bathroom and a choice between irish or continental breakfast. I had to use the place's extra facilities and had aditional requirements, and they were always helpful and accomodating. Furthermore they helped me pick another b&b nearby since I had to stay longer than anticipated.
    And they are both very nice persons to talk to.

    I completely recomend it.

  • Jack and Audrey's place was very nice. It was a traditional bed and breakfast, and it was lovely. We were only there for a short stay but Audrey cooked a full Irish breakfast for us in the morning! It was delicious. They let us use their washer and dryer, which was very fast and very handy. It is not in the city centre, but very close to the Botanical gardens and only a short bus trip to the centre. My partner and I walked it the centre in 30 minutes. It also gave us a chance to explore a less touristed neighbourhood, with less expensive pubs/bars. The room was tidy, the bed comfortable and the shower was luxurious. I would stay again next time I visit.
    Thanks again!
