Fine and fit for purpose. Bit expensive, but maybe that was the weekend we hit Dublin, too much demand.

Very nice visit. The proprietor couldn't have been more friendly and helpful, the room was large (by Euro B&B standards) and clean, the bed was comfy, and the location--while not right in the thick of things--was reasonably convenient.

Cute Neighbourhood Accommodation

I stayed at Acara House for 3 nights. The hostess Elizabeth and her mum Helen were very accommodating. The room was small but with a comfortable bed and TV. It was a really good choice for a cheap stay. The breakfast facilities were adequate for those with non dietary requirements. Overall pleasant place to stay, only down side was the room wasn't as clean as I would have liked.
