Street noise can be an issue in street-facing rooms
Few on-site features and no elevator
Located on an attractive street of red-brick Georgian buildings in central Dublin, the historic Parkway is a small family-owned-and-operated value guesthouse. Rooms, which were renovated in 2016, include flat-screen TVs, kettles, and free Wi-Fi, but they're cramped and bathrooms are tiny. Continental breakfast is included in the room rate, and there's a comfy lounge area with a TV, small library, and fireplace. Street-facing rooms can be noisy, and there's no elevator. Travelers might want to also check out the Harding Hotel, which is within walking distance of many tourist attractions.
Parkway Guesthouse is located on a street lined with five-story attached Georgian buildings with red-brick facades, arched doorways, and Juliet balconies. Built in 1776, the building was a private home until it was transformed into a hotel in 1940. The street has a lot of historical character and was used as a backdrop during the filming of "Michael Collins" in 1996. The guesthouse has been owned and operated by the same family since the 1950s, and its members still live on the premises. Interiors were renovated in 2016, and they have a well-maintained look, with floors lined with scarlet carpeting and attractive old-fashioned oak furniture finished in warm tones that decorates the entrance hall and breakfast room. The building does not have an elevator, which may present a challenge for some guests. Given its reasonable rates, this is a popular place to stay, and it draws travelers from across the spectrum.

Renovated in 2016, the rooms at Parkway Guesthouse are immaculate and well-maintained. Decor is simple and conservative with beige walls, scarlet carpeting, and matching bedspreads -- or black carpeting and gray bedspreads, with classic wood-grain furniture in warm tones. But the rooms are small with little extra storage space for luggage. Bathrooms are tiny; they have narrow shower cabins, and in some rooms, sinks are located outside the bathroom doors. Toiletries are provided. All rooms have a 32-inch flat-screen TV, free Wi-Fi, and kettles with free tea and coffee packets. The street-facing rooms can be noisy, so light sleepers may prefer one of the rooms at the back. Rooms are available as Singles, Doubles, Twins, Triples, and Family Rooms with bunk beds.
Parkway Guesthouse is a typical bed-and-breakfast, which means it has no on-site features other than breakfast and free Wi-Fi. Breakfast, which is included in the room rate, is a cold buffet of hard-boiled eggs, ham, cereal, bread with butter, jam, yogurt, fruit, tea, coffee, and juice. Special diets can be catered to if the management is informed in advance. The guest lounge is a pleasant place to relax and has brown leather sofas arranged around an open fireplace. The space is also set with an upright piano, small library, and tube-style television. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout.
