Reviews of Number 31
Hotel Guest on 25-Oct-2016:
Wir hatten einen sehr schönen Aufenhalt in einem ruhigen und grosszügigen Zimmer mit Blick auf den Garten. Frühstück ist ganz toll, sehr liebevoll und individuell zubereitet. Sehr freundliches Personal, tolle Lage sehr zentral. Zusammenfassung: klein und fein ! Einzige Anmerkung: Abflussrohr zu hören, Heizungsregler im Bad und Fernsehfernbedienung kaputt.

First of all, Noel is the salt of the earth. There is nothing he will not do for you to make your stay in Ireland as pleasant as possible. We were a challenge in that we arrived hours before checkin time, but were immediately pampered with a fantastic breakfast in the "sun room". We had been up over 24 hours, and Noel and his team did their best to get us into a room early so we could rest. Noel and his right hand, Adam, offered suggestions for things to do and places to eat. You never feel lost when you start out from Number 31. Our home could not have been more comfortable. Thank you Noel, Adam, Linda and all who cooked and cleaned to make our stay memorable. God Bless!

The staff is unfailingly friendly and helpful. They offered suggestions for dining and volunteered to make reservations. The common spaces are lovely and inviting. The rooms are well appointed, clean, and comfortable. The location is excellent for walking to various museums on the south side of the Liffey.

By far my favourite place to stay in Dublin - wonderful people, design, location, breakfast... wonderful everything!
Hotel Guest on 17-Oct-2016:
My husband and I loved our stay at Number 31. Our flight from the US arrived early in the morning, and we were so happy to eat breakfast that morning at Number 31. The food was great, my husband had the full Irish breakfast and I had the scrambled eggs with smoked salmon. Our room in the Georgian house was very nice. Overlooking the garden, there was no street noise. It was larger than most European hotel rooms. The location was very convenient, about a 10-15 minute walk to St. Stephen's Green and Grafton street shopping. I would definitely stay here again. The staff was very courteous. Helped with calling taxis, where to eat...The other guests I spoke with felt the same way.

Hotel Guest on 16-Oct-2016:
Very welcoming and friendly, nothing too much trouble. Will be back.
Erin Burget on 14-Oct-2016:
Fabulous! Favorite part was getting to personally interact with the owners at each breakfast. Can't wait to come back!!
Hotel Guest on 13-Oct-2016:
We were very happy with our experience at Number 31. The service was above and beyond what other hotels offer. From the gracious cup of tea and cookies we received upon arrival to the delicious full breakfasts we had, the staff were friendly, warm and welcoming. It is also in a terrific location for exploring Dublin. We would definitely return to Number 31 when we visit Dublin again.
Cheryl Marquis on 13-Oct-2016:
Number 31 is an amazing little guesthouse! We are so pleased to have found it. We stayed there twice, for two nights when we first arrived in Dublin, then for a night before leaving the country after our vacation. Linda and Noel are wonderful, accommodating hosts. The rooms are lovely, the breakfast unbelievable, but most importantly, their warmth is unparalleled. I especially enjoyed the small garden that connects the 2 buildings. Another benefit is their association with the best driver in all of Dublin, Justin Wilson. He set up a tour for us for the surrounding area of Dublin. He also arranged for us to have an incredible driver on the west coast. I feel that we have true friends in Dublin!

We stayed at Number 31 for 5 nights in October, 2016. Since we planned to spend our time only in Dublin we were looking for a place to stay that would be comfortable, pleasant, and our home away from home. Number 31 met our expectations wonderfully! Noel and the entire staff could not have been more pleasant and accommodating. Our room was lovely and we enjoyed the short stroll through the garden on our way to and from a delicious breakfast each morning. Number 31 provided a serene sanctuary in the midst of a bustling city.

Great room, wonderful location, hospitable host, amazing breakfast.
Michael Gleason on 28-Sep-2016:
A very comfortable room in a very good location, and a very good breakfast, too. But it was the owners & staff that made our stay exceptional. We can't wait to go back.
Sarah McDonald on 28-Sep-2016:
All excellent & I will be back! Fabulous food & staff... Sarah McDonald
Hotel Guest on 26-Sep-2016:
Great place to stay. Breakfasts are delicious! Location is quite good
Hotel Guest on 24-Sep-2016:
Charming warm beautiful and so conveniently located! A treat of a place. Makes you feel like you're home though in a foreign city!
Hotel Guest on 24-Sep-2016:
Top rate service and accommodation.
Hotel Guest on 22-Sep-2016:
It was pretty much what we expected. Room was just a tad smaller than anticipated but worked out fine. Noel was an outstanding host and the breakfasts were fantastic. After reading reviews we requested to not be in the "basement" room, so we were given the fourth floor. Not sure if that was on purpose, or if that's just the way things worked out. Far away from the basement, but quite the climb up the stairs. Would rate a 5 if we were on a lower floor maybe. Very nice accommodations and walking distance to the heart of Dublin.
Stanley Seneco on 19-Sep-2016:
Wonderful breakfasts. Good location in the city. Room extremely comfortable with all conveniences. Common room great to have discussions with other guests. Everyone is so friendly and helpful.
Hotel Guest on 16-Sep-2016:
Lovely stay. Great room, hospitality, and breakfasts. Hard to top the location, yet our room was very quiet. Only suggestions would be softer towels, and better lighting outside our room's door (we were in room 15). And perhaps an honour bar in the lobby? But those are minor nits - overall a wonderful spot that we would certainly recommend.
Hotel Guest on 12-Sep-2016:
We enjoyed every aspect of our stay at Number 31. The staff were uniformly welcoming and helpful; our room was lovely; the public spaces were a pleasure to use; and we were delighted by both the food and the company at breakfast. We would most certainly choose Number 31 again on a repeat visit to Dublin.
Robert Keeline on 10-Sep-2016:
We loved the location and the breakfasts. Also the beds and pillows! I think the only thing we would change would be the lighting. Hard to read in bed and to see in general at night Needs some sparkle lighting to see the lovely furnishings Your hospitality and helpfulness is unsurpassed. Would definitely stay here again!

My stay at Number 31 was truly wonderful. I stayed in 5 hotels during my 2 week trip through Ireland, and only Number 31 managed to provide casual, comfortable elegance with great service. It's an enviable mix- and Number 31 has it. Highly recommended.
Stuart VigusHumphrey on 8-Sep-2016:
Wonderful hosts, lovely rooms and areas to relax. The sunken courtyard garden was a particular highlight, when we wanted to relax in the afternoon before heading back out, and with complimentary tea and cookies available on request during the day, things couldn't be better. We look forward to returning.
Donna Shea Clark on 5-Sep-2016:
We loved Number 31! It had a wonderful B&B feel in the midst of central Dublin. Lovely staff, wonderful breakfasts, stylish rooms, and fabulous location. I will definitely return!
Andrew Schulman on 5-Sep-2016:
What a lovely place! The room, the hospitality, the breakfast!! Couldn't have been a better base for our stay in Dublin. Can't wait to come back, thank you!!
Susanne Dr Wolfram on 2-Sep-2016:
It was wonderful! Comfortable rooms, friendly staff, super cats, best cooked breakfast ever!!
Hotel Guest on 1-Sep-2016:
We had an amazing time at Number 31. We are a family of four and had two rooms. The rooms are very comfortable and stylish. The staff and owners could not have been nicer or more helpful in every way. The breakfast is the best, no need for lunch!! Highly recommend!
Stephen Schuelke on 1-Sep-2016:
My wife and I really enjoyed our visit when we stayed at Number 31 on August 6th and 7th. Noel and everyone at Number 31 was very helpful and made sure we had all we needed for a comfortable stay. Noel made sure we knew our way around Dublin and gave great advice about how to get around. To top that off the breakfasts were great!
Hotel Guest on 29-Aug-2016:
Our family had a lovely three-night stay. The staff could not have been more welcoming and gracious and the accommodations were comfortable and architecturally charming. It is wonderful to stay in a place where there is attention paid to the smallest details and an eye for elegance is in evidence everywhere. We were charmed and hope to return some day soon.
Theresa Mullen on 28-Aug-2016:
Accommodations were unique and supremely clean. Staff and owners were incredibly hospitable, knowledgeable and kind.
Genevieve Wood on 25-Aug-2016:
We absolutely loved our trip to Ireland and a big reason for that was the hospitality from start to finish at Number 31. We were greeted when we arrived with tea, coffee, and delicious cranberry bread treats. Adam, who greeted us, then proactively spent at least 20 minutes with us going over a map of Dublin and describing points of interest, restaurants, and travel options. The staff was very helpful before we arrived in giving us feedback on good restaurants so we could make reservations in advance of our trip. The website tells you that your stay includes breakfast - what it doesn't tell you is how amazing the breakfast will be! Coming from the U.S., when you see "breakfast included," you think some muffins, bagels, mane boiled eggs and fruit. At Number 31, they make your breakfast to order...omelette, scrambled with salmon, sausages, wonderful breads, homemade porridge, delicious berries, yogurt and French pressed coffee and tea. You will love starting each day here meeting other hotel guests and the owners who are delightful and full of stories about the hotel and Dublin. We had two double rooms and both were very clean and beds were very comfortable. We were there when temps didn't get above 68 so while I prefer air conditioning, simply opening the windows did the trick. Bathrooms are modern. Only improvement we'd suggest is adding more lights to the rooms. Linens and products were excellent. If you're looking for a local experience instead of a chain hotel but are concerned about whether a local hotel will provide the level of service and accommodations you're looking for...you can't go wrong by booking at Number 31. We would definitely stay there again!
Elaine Doran on 23-Aug-2016:
Number 31 is without doubt the best hotel I've ever stayed in. From the warm welcome with a cuppa, the helpful chat about the local area, complete with recommendations, to the central but quiet location and the incredible breakfast. I've stayed 3 times now and wouldn't stay anywhere else if I visit the city again. The rooms are really comfortable, clean and nicely decorated. The staff couldn't be more accommodating - even bringing a DVD player and DVDs to your room! The breakfast really is delicious - make sure you leave yourself plenty of time to really enjoy it. If you stay at Number 31 you really won't be disappointed.
Virginia Woelflein on 23-Aug-2016:
Lovely hotel; extremely kind and attentive staff; delicious breakfasts; great recommendations for local restaurant. Highly recommended.
Hotel Guest on 22-Aug-2016:
Noel and his staff made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. We felt as though we were visiting friends rather than staying at a hotel. Our family will remember and talk about the breakfasts at #31 for a long while-everything from full Irish to scrambled eggs with smoked salmon to a delicious porridge, all prepared and served professionally and with full attention to detail while maintaining a friendly and informal feel. The location was great for us-within walking distance of many Dublin sights. Our room was comfortable and quiet even with an entrance close to the street. Would absolutely choose to stay there again.
Laura Brewer on 21-Aug-2016:
We loved staying here! Our room was a cozy best, and the breakfast was phenomenal. Best of all was Noel's (and the entire staff's) warm hospitality and charming Irish wit.
Hotel Guest on 18-Aug-2016:
Wundervoll. Sollte ein Geheimtipp bleiben!
Hotel Guest on 16-Aug-2016:
We had a lovely, though too short, stay at Number 31. As the guidebooks say, the breakfast is phenomenal. We stayed at the Shelbourne Hotel when we first arrived in Dublin and then stayed at Number 31 a week later when leaving Dublin, after a wonderful week touring around Ireland. Number 31 was every bit as comfortable and relaxing and much less expensive than the first hotel. It is within close walking distance to nearly everything you could want to see in Dublin. Tea and cookies on our arrival made our day. Thanks to Noel and Sean, our stay was the perfect way to end our vacation in Ireland.
Hotel Guest on 6-Aug-2016:
Our stay was wonderful. A real pleasant surprise. Our host and the staff were pleasant and the breakfast was wonderful each morning. You were greeted with fabulous coffee and delicious food. Rooms were clean and efficient. Our only complaint was that the rooms were a bit warm.
Amy Shapiro on 5-Aug-2016:
Absolutely terrific -- elegant and low key. I recommend it highly.
Hotel Guest on 2-Aug-2016:
The hospitality of everyone at the hotel was warm and helpful but the breakfasts were out of this world!
Ramon Solis on 28-Jul-2016:
Outstanding, from the hearty welcome to the last full Irish breakfast; sad we could not have stayed longer. Thanks.
Howard Martin on 22-Jul-2016:
Another fabulous stay at Number 31. Everyone is so welcoming and helpful. The rooms are lovely and the breakfast could not be better no matter where you stay. We will be back again! Soon I hope.
vicki warnock on 19-Jul-2016:
Noel was a lifesaver with suggestions regarding car rental. He not only gave us a lovely nights stay with fabulous breakfast, but peace of mind.
Maureen Bromley on 18-Jul-2016:
We landed in Dublin exhausted. Our stay at Number 31 was rejuvenating. The staff were excellent and helped us sort out our daily plans. Breakfast was filled with wonderful food and conversation with the staff and fellow guests. Noel is charming and welcoming and definitely embodies the Irish gift of gab. What a great way to start a visit to Ireland. "If you try to see everything you may end up seeing nothing" Noel
Benjamin Valdez on 14-Jul-2016:
Dublin was our first stop and Number 31 was a fabulous start. The room and morning breakfast were outstanding. Sean offered great recommendation on things to do and places to dine. It was a memorable time. Thank you!!
Jeffrey Crudgington on 13-Jul-2016:
Charming, quirky (in the nicest sense), peaceful and with a selection of breakfasts for "gourmands" to carry you through the day. A trendy boutique hotel with a great ambience in a good location.
