The stay was very nice! Nice breakfast, nice host! Definitely worth for the money. The tram is very close, and it's only 5-10 minutes to city centre


Really great base for a stay in Dublin-just round the corner from the Luas (tram) and across the road from the bus stop. Great hospitality and can't really fault anything!

We liked to stay in Portland House two times on our trip across Ireland. Good location to start / end tour or just visit dublin. Easy to get to city by bus or tram.


The owners were very warm, welcoming and delightful with our 2 year old grandson. The breakfast was delicious... Best breakfast sausages I have tasted!

The owner was very rude and opened the door while being fairly intoxicated. She made my employees to drive around Dublin looking for the ATM as she refused to accept payment by card and when the cash was provided, refused to give a receipt. She also refused to provide breakfast, because, apparently, 7.30 on Friday morning, is to early to make breakfast for people staying there. The only good thing I can say that bed & breakfast was in top location for my guys to get to work. No excuse though
