Well positionedPosted Sep 14, 2014
A budget B and B with reasonable but basic facilities. We found the area very handy and Elizabeth most accommodating. The room was small and the ensuite requires dexterity.

Excellent HospitalityPosted Jul 2, 2014
Pros: Acara House is in a quiet residential area within a five minute walk from the Drumcondra road. From there you can walk into the city on hop a bus.
Location: Tip: get a 10 euro return ticket from the airport link bus. It drops you at the end of the road.
Comfortable B&B with excellent hospitality by Elizabeth. Made our stay special.

ExcellentPosted Jun 6, 2014 on Hotels.com
Our stay was excellent. The bathroom is a bit tight and small, but the bed was comfortable and the room was entirely to our liking. This is best for those seeking a simple stay, not for those looking for luxury. I would describe it in the whole as comfortable and relaxing.

OUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME IN IRELANDPosted Jul 20, 2013
Location: It is located very close to the city central (about a 20 minute walk). Just around the corner from the B&B is a nice street filled with pubs, etc.
Our stay at the Acara House was absolutely wonderful! From the minute my daughter and I got there until we left, Elizabeth was both warm and friendly and always willing and anxious to make us feel comfortable. The room was was very neat, clean and cozy and was tidy upon all of our returns. Elizabeth was always available to help or give advice and even went out our her to way to help us with our parking. I recommend this B&B to anyone who wants a wonderful stay in a convenient location and a very gracious host. She serves up a wonderful breakfast on request or has plenty of fresh fruit, cereals, bread, juice, coffee and jams or jelllies. Thank you Elizabeth for making our stay a memorable one!

Well priced, comfortable, and friendlyPosted Oct 6, 2012 on Hotels.com
The Acara House is a comfortable, well priced B&B just outside Dublin's city center, in the Drumcondra section. Very easy to get there by Air Coach bus from the airport, and about a 20 minute walk to the Temple Bar and Trinity College sections. Drumcondra itself is a working class neighborhood, with a lot of local color, but a bit lacking in places to eat, cafes, and other amenities when you don't yet know your way around. The Acara House proprietor, Elizabeth, is fantastic. She went out of her way to stay in touch with us by e-mail before we arrived, and opened the doors very early so we could get settled after our overnight flight from Boston, rest a bit, and really enjoy our first full day in Dublin. We had to leave before breakfast the next morning to catch a train to Galway, so are unable to comment on breakfast, but the dining room itself looked very inviting. The bed was large and very comfortable, especially after a night wedged into economy seats on the airplane. We would recommend the Acara House very highly.
A very nice b&b and lovely ownersPosted Aug 7, 2012 on Hotels.com
I did enjoy staying. I had a tiny room but it was enough for me cos i stayed for only one night. I did like decor, facilities were good and i had a nice breakfast. There was only one thing...drawers in the cabinet weren't really clean, but the bathroom was and that was more important for me. Overall i would like to come back there.

Great breakfast, but a ways awayPosted Jul 21, 2012 on Hotels.com
This was the nicest and cleanest B&B I stayed in whilst in Dublin. Room was big and clean, nice tea service en suite. It is a GOOD 25-30 minute walk (at a clip) from city centre, and there is no clear or easy way to get there. There are bus stops close by, but these are poorly labeled. Also, surrounding area is quiet yet sparse. The Mapels Hotel across the way has a restaurant and full bar, but that is it. I recommend the lodging for price, cleanliness, and the great breakfast... Just bear in mind that it is not close. With that said, the lodgings in Dublin proper are no great bargain and arent all that nice.

Very comfortablePosted Jun 18, 2012
Cons: Tiny bathroom
Very comfortable B&B, welcoming hosts and delicious breakfast. Only let down was the tiny en-suite bathroom but would definitely stay here again.
