Bottom Line

Located in a northern neighborhood about a 20-minute walk from the city center, it's run by Kevin, Garvan and their Schnauzer Fred. The two rooms are thoughtfully decorated and have ultra-comfortable beds and unique decor, but they share a bathroom. The hosts are particularly thoughtful and serve a famed three-course breakfast, taking their guests preferences into consideration. If you're looking for a home away from home experience, the Two Rooms in Dublin will deliver.

Scene

Quiet due to just two guest rooms; the hosts and their dog are very friendly and offer guests recommendations

The hotel is in an unremarkable brick building with three windows that was built in 1834; once inside, the attention to detail is evident. Hosts Garvan, Kevin and their Schanuzer Fred greet guests at Two Rooms with their fresh-baked (and raved about) scones, along with tea and French press coffee. The few public spaces and rooms are thoughtfully decorated and have unique knickknacks such as a carousel horse, a rotary phone, and a Jesus figurine. Garvan cooks a delicious three-course breakfast and serves it in the dining room by candlelight. The wooden table and white pod-like chairs sit next to the fireplace and filled bookshelves. There's a bright kitchen that looks out onto the lovely garden housing a wooden table and chairs, an old tuba, and ample greenery. The bed and breakfast is homey and quiet, and Garvan and Kevin will give recommendations on what to do or where to eat in Dublin.

Location

Situated in Dublin's north inner city, about a 20-minute walk to the city center

The Two Rooms in Dublin is located in a northern inner city neighborhood where it's safe to walk around but not very remarkable or pretty. It's a 10-minute walk to O'Connell Street, Dublin's main thoroughfare. It's about a 20-minute walk to the city center and Temple Bar, a lively area with many pubs, restaurants, and galleries. The Dublin airport is about a 15-minute drive and the Connolly rail station is 10 minutes away by car. There's ample street parking. 

Rooms

Two carefully decorated rooms with plush beds, and one with a fireplace; they share a bathroom

The Upstairs Bright Double is a spacious carpeted room with a huge window that lets in a lot of light.The brass and cast-iron bed is very comfortable with 100 percent Egyptian cotton sheets, a goose down duvet, and colorful plaid throw. There are a wooden dresser, an armoire holding silk oriental robes, and medallion rug. Unique decor touches include a wooden toy truck, black feathered mask, and old radio that is softly playing classical music when gets arrive. The room looks out over surrounding buildings.

The Garden Double with Open Fire is similarly decorated and furnished with the same cozy bedding. The fireplace is a nice feature during colder months. The room has wooden floors, dining table with two chairs, a pretty distressed dresser, and traditional rug. A rotary phone, radio, and nightstand with books are thoughtful touches. There are also silk robes, and fresh water is always provided. The room overlooks the garden and there's a half bathroom across the hall.

The two guest rooms share a bathroom; it's a large space with a deep tub, glass walk-in shower, and toiletries. A big and small rubber ducky, books, and fresh flowers are also present.

Features

The popular three-course breakfast is a highlight.

The Two Rooms in Dublin is known for its well-regarded three-course breakfast, which is served in the dining room by candlelight. Hosts take the guests preferences and dietary restrictions into consideration and serve up locally sourced dishes. Their scones are regarded as some of the best, but expect to also try dishes like baked eggs with four cheeses, cinnamon french toast with blueberry compote, and homemade granola with yogurt and poached fruit. They even sell a cookbook and a mug featuring Fred's likeness. Though they don't serve lunch or dinner, the hosts will offer their recommendations on what to do or where to eat in Dublin. There's free Wi-Fi, and the greenery-filled garden and patio is a nice spot to sit and relax.
