We enjoyed our stay at Harvey's Guesthouse. Just two things come to mind: 1) Their wifi is limited to the front rooms and hallways. That needs to be fixed, and 2) It should be easier to "sign up" for breakfast!! Otherwise, it's a good choice. You'll enjoy your stay. The directions to the guesthouse are a bit confusing -- but if you take the "bus" you can walk there in about 10 or 15 minutes. Highly recommended.

Harvey's is in a good location. It takes about ten minutes to walk into the centre. The owners were so helpful and we enjoyed our stay. I would stay there again.

Very reasonable for the close proximity to the centre. Spotlessly clean room with excellent power shower. Owner was very friendly upon check in. Our room was massive with a double and 2 singles, lovely fireplace and old sash windows. Lovely charm to the place. The old lady on check out was particularly friendly and knowledgeable. Did not have breakfast as rushing to the airport!

A really lovely welcoming atmosphere, quiet location (we had a back room at the top of the house), very clean, beds were comfortable and clean (mattress protectors, clean pillows, nice duvets etc). We weren't sure what to expect of a 'budget' hostel and were very pleasantly surprised. Would go back with (or without!) husbands and children.

An excellent Guesthouse to begin our trip to Ireland. Located north of the river, it was about a 20 minute walk to the river and then a few more minutes to Temple Bar district. Many other guest houses in the area and apparently, many "council flats". This gives the area character: something you won't get ensconced in your 4 star hotel and at no extra charge!. It was refreshing and fun to live for a few days amongst working class Dubliners. Recommend Harvey's Guesthouse to anyone who asks.

We thought that the hostel/room was a good value for what we spent to stay there. The people were very nice and helpful, especially since we had to check in earlier than we'd expected. We were a little confused about the internet and TV. We never figured out the TV (although that's not what we were in Dublin for anyway!), and we didn't see the signs about the wifi until we were checking out! It would be worth mentioning at check-in that the wifi is available in the common areas.
