A firm favourite among Dublin's budget travellers, this pleasantly warm and cheery guesthouse occupies a lovely old red-brick building. Its pine floors, high ceilings and open fireplace make it a thoroughly pleasant place in which to relax. Rooms range from dorms to doubles, and all are immaculately clean. In fact, this place has all you really need: cheerful rooms in a safe location at a cheap price. And its most recent addition (a branch of the excellent Bald Barista café just up the road) is perfect for charging up the system with a morning espresso and planning out the day.
