My brother in law booked this 2 months ago. Upon arriving, apparrently there was a mistake in the rooms and we had to wait 35 minutes while our room was made up and another long wait while the second room was being prepared. However, our suite had a private bathroom with a small shower. Nothing grand but clean and comfortable. We had a door that led to an outdoor sitting area facing the garden. It's hard to make a good second impression unfortunately.

I booked this place on as it said in the description that it had parking. This was a necessary component of my booking as I was driving up from Cork and would arrive late. After booking a non refundable night I received an email that informed me that parking was ‘first come first serve’. I emailed back straight away voicing my discomfort. Heading up late was stressful enough without the guarantee of parking. I was told that there was ‘nothing to be done’ and it was a lottery. I was naturally annoyed as the main reason I booked this place was for the parking. I was essentially told to ‘get over it’ Needless to say, I did not stay there nor would I recommend it to anyone. Appalling customer service.

I booked this hotel thru It says on there page that payment will be taken at check-in. 2 days later they took 100% on my card. We chose this hotel because my friend needed a visa. She was refused. Now the hotel is refusing to give money back even though under their cancellation policy on their page it says any cancellation before 2/28 entitles them to keep 30 percent. Businesses like this one should not be allowed on apps like or etc because they make these apps look bad.

I was working south of the city .... this was perfect ... meant I didn't have to deal with Dublin morning traffic ! A private, warm, comfortable room, with wifi ! Cheerful, helpful staff ... I really wanted a desk in my room, no desk, but one of the staff cheerfully brought an outside table in for me ... perfect ! Free continental breakfast if you book direct. Loads of off street parking ...

Good value for money. Room was cozy, clean and quiet. It's near the city center, good location. And avobe all this hostel has a friendly and helpful staff. In short, it's ideal for a quiet and relaxing stay in Dublin.

The bus stop is located just 5 min walk from the guest house. It’s also possible to walk to the city centre, it takes about 40 minutes. The neighbourhood is lovely and quiet. The room was big and the wifi was fast. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, it was very enjoyable. The negative thing was the bed, which was not very comfortable and the noise coming from the other rooms.

This is a basic kind of place, cheap and cheerful - a comfortable bed, small tv, excellent shower (shared), good coffee, and breakfast if you want it. There are few other creature comforts, though there is a small sitting room. The staff are lovely, helpful and always smiling. I find it great for an overnight stay, but I’m an old geezer; young travellers might stay much longer; they display a letter from a happy customer who stayed for a month.

Room was clean and cozy and the hotel personnel was very nice and helpful. Couple of stops from dublin city centre (tip for visitors: get the leap card for city transport, its very cheap compared to one time tickets)

Confirmation said “double room with shared bathroom” yet paid for a triple room (£93 a night) to get a room that’s not even like the pictures shown online. Didn’t get clean towels during our stay. Cold tap ran hot water and even when mentioned to member of staff they didn’t do anything about it. well over priced.

We stayed at Marilyn Mason for few nights. Guest House is within easy access to city centre 20 minutes by bus. 10/12 euros by taxi in the evening. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. It is not a posh place,everything was clean and we had a bathroom in our room. The gentleman from Mauritius was very helpful and kind I think his name was Ismael. Both receptionists we met were great and friendly. Dublin is an expensive city for hotels and we just needed a place to sleep and have breakfast, out the whole day exploring Ireland. Marilyn Mansion was perfect for our needs! Thank you :)
