Townhouse Dublin Reviews

I stayed at The Townhouse Dublin on the 26th March 2013, I was expected to travel to Cork but got snowed in while in Dublin, late March snow storm made it unsafe for me to travel. I Booked on the Townhouse website and enjoyed a full Irish Breakfast free, when I paid less than €50 I was nervous as I thought the accommodation might not be very good, however, The Townhouse is one of the most comfortable City Centre Hotels that I have ever stayed in, the open fire helped me defrost from the harsh weather and the friendly staff melted away the memories of what had been a difficult day at work. I enjoyed a cup of tea in front of the open fire and enjoyed great chat with fellow guests. I have no problem recommending The Townhouse Dublin, I think the real measure of a Hotel or Guesthouse is its welcome, and The Townhouse Dublin measured up real good.

Best wishes and happy travel


Stayed March 2013, travelled solo

Townhouse Dublin Special Guest

On Tuesday the 24th September 2013 The Townhouse Dublin proprietor, Muriel O’Connor, was proud to welcome a very Special Guest, 91 year old Sheila Dooner returned to the Georgian built Townhouse Dublin where she had lived and played as a child during the embryotic stages of The Irish Republic.


Sheila Dooner had lived on the second floor of 46 Gardiner Street, and she had mixed memories of happiness while also remembering the difficulties that many families faced during the depression of the 1920s.

Sheila was joined on her visit to The Townhouse Dublin by her two wonderful daughters who were delighted that their Mother was able to visit her childhood home.

Sheila delighted everyone with her story of how visitors to Number 46 Gardiner Street Dublin in the 1920s would use the large brass door knocker to indicate which floor of the building the wished to visit, for example, if someone wanted to visit the first floor, they would bang the large brass knocker once against its hardwood door, and the bang of the large knocker would echo through the large empty corridors and stairways to alert the families on the first floor.

On Wednesday 25th September 2013 Sheila Dooner and her family Gathered for a unique family reunion, and there is no doubt that Sheila will thrill her entire family with her memories of number 46 Gardiner Street in the 1920s.

The Townhouse Dublin was honoured that Sheila Dooner took the time to visit her ancestral home, and Muriel O’Connor in particular was thrilled to hear yet another chapter in the history of Dublin’s historic Townhouse.
