Pat and Monica Finn's pleasant guesthouse is situated in a residential area near the Botanic Gardens at Glasnevin, and offers comfortable, well-maintained accommodation at a reasonable price.
The location is extremely handy- not only is it within walking distance of the Botanic gardens, but also conveniently close to Phibsborough, with all its shopping amenities. And an amazing number of places - the airport, north Dublin golf clubs, Dublin City University, The Helix (DCU Performing Arts complex), Dublin port and the city centre - are all very accessible from here.
While the atmosphere is Edwardian, modern facilities are provided, including a PC with broadband in the resident's lounge, plus a giant television and a stereo system, while more old-fashioned entertainment can be had from the piano.
Standards of comfort are high and guest rooms have tea/coffee trays, a desk, internet access, and a safe large enough to hold a laptop, which is useful; all are en-suite, although it should be noted that some bathrooms offer shower only. Breakfast consists of a generous buffet, and staff are friendly and helpful.
Parking is available in front of the house, and there is also on-street parking without much difficulty.
