We wanted to share a gem of a special hotel in a victorian townhouse within walking distance of the heart of Dublin. We LOVED our time there and the entire Number 31 family made us feel so welcomed all throughout our stay. From the moment you arrive, they welcome you and help you with your luggage. Number 31 is a victorian townhouse and so well-appointed with art deco pieces and wonderful art. There is an unique area right, when you enter, where you can sit and relax and talk and it is so cozy. We had special help from the general manager, Mihai and all in reception–thank you Agata, Clara, Dana and Marina! You made us feel at home every moment and helped us with all of our tourist questions. We looked forward to Delia’s homemade Irish breakfast each morning…Delia has been there for many years and everything coming out of her kitchen is delicious! Luiza, Mary and Ciara are Delia’s right hand angels who make all go right for a wonderful breakfast. – Hotel Guest, September 2022
Best Hidden Treasure
This hotel is amazing, especially for architecture and interior design lovers. Very smart hotel, chick, beautiful, and unique. The staff is super friendly. The atmosphere is cool, 20’s style! Design with thought to every detail. Super comfortable. Got upgrade to a bigger room for free without asking. The breakfast – was the best breakfast I’ve ever eaten in Ireland. Don’t miss it. I recommend it with all my heart. Stay in this hotel, you won’t regret it.

Charming & Comfortable
What a delightful surprise this lovely Georgian townhouse is. We had a one-day layover in Dublin and wanted something close to the city centre and comfortable. Number31 fit the bill. The architecture is gorgeous, the decor is charming, and the beds are so cozy. The courtyard and the lobby offer lovely areas to sit for a cocktail, rest, or read. A stay includes breakfast – don’t miss it! The coffee is served in a French press – a good strong brew. you can order off the menu anything from eggs Benedict to a full Irish. All served with wonderful brown bread and good Irish butter. Tables are community-style, so we got to meet our fellow house guests and share travel notes. The staff were warm, welcoming and eager to help make our stay a success. Our room was a dream. The bed & pillows were so comfortable. The bathroom is modern and well-equipped. The shower was perfect. One thing to consider – some rooms include a steep climb up stairs. If you have any issues with stairs, just ask for a room on a lower level. There are plenty of good restaurants nearby. We had dinner at Matt the Thresher just down the street. The staff offer great recommendations. We walked to Grafton St easily in less than 10 minutes. This is our go-to for future trips to Dublin!

I stayed here for one night with my boyfriend, and we had a lovely time. It’s decorated very nicely and in a good central location. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, our room was lovely and had everything we needed. We really enjoyed the included breakfast- it was delicious!

This is the coolest hotel I’ve ever stayed in.
My wife and I booked a room based on a recommendation by a work colleague and we weren’t disappointed.
This is a hotel of two halves, one side is the beautiful Georgian building with amazing rooms with gorgeous high ceilings with incredible detailing and the other, where we stayed, is the fantastic original 60’s architects house with a sunken lounge by the fire and even an honesty bar. We stayed in “Sam’s room” which I believe was the architect who designed the building’s original bedroom and its bathroom alone was worth the visit. The room had the most comfortable bed I’ve ever slept on and for the first time ever I was sorry to be getting into my own bed when I got home.
The staff were so friendly and helpful all the way through our short stay and the breakfast was cooked to order in the morning and it was delicious.
This will be our go-to spot every time we stay in Dublin from now on. Can’t recommend it highly enough.

Number 31 … Exquisite, Warm & Very Special
I have stayed in many hotels over the years, but have yet to stay in one that measures up to the unique elegance and comfort of ‘Number 31’. We entered through the unassuming, seclusion of the close, which lead us to the infamous sunken lounge. I was hooked! The glass-walled reception area is proudly positioned looking out over the enclosed courtyard and has the Georgian facade of the main building in its sights. We stayed in ‘The Fabulous Double’. I have to say that this room title was no understatement, as indeed it was a ‘Truly Fabulous’ room. Everywhere we looked oozed 1920s glamour and style. From beautiful artwork to elegant furnishings that seem to have been carefully selected and positioned by a keen eye for detail. Every staff member that we met throughout our stay was friendly, welcoming and extremely helpful. Now, I have to mention ‘Delia’s breakfast’. It was simply delicious! Great ingredients, well-executed by an accomplished cook.
I look forward to my return to Number 31…It won’t be long before I stay again! A big Thank You to Ray and the team.

What a glorious place, the rooms and staff are exquisite and it was great to meet Delia the most extraordinary breakfast maker who helped fill us in with the extraordinary and rich history of the building. Look forward to returning sometime soon.
– Hotel Guest, January 2022
We stayed in the Fabulous suite and I have to say, it was one of the most interesting and well-curated rooms I have ever slept in. The hotel is gorgeous, dripping with art deco antique pieces, the staff are wonderful and the breakfast is amazing. We look forward to experiencing Number 31 again.

A wonderful Stay
Fantastic Hotel with great service and wonderful breakfasts. Slept well in a huge comfy bed and the hotel is located in a quiet area. The internal garden is charming and the lounge cosy and beautiful complete with fire and the honesty bar. The perfect place as within easy walking distance to all the sights etc. Thank you, Delia and staff, it was our first trip since the beginning of Covid and it was a real treat.

Lovely Hotel – Everything about my stay was perfect
I’ve been coming to Dublin regularly on business for 5 years, and have stayed in many hotels. This was my first stay at Number 31 and I’m thrilled to have found it – My new favourite! It is just a lovely place, decorated well, super comfortable and large room, very relaxing and cosy common areas. And the staff was nothing short of spectacular. It made my ordinary work trip a spectacular experience in Dublin. I highly recommend and look forward to my next stay!

Number 31, More like Number 1!
From the moment we checked in we were welcomed so warmly by the staff and had a drink which we had in the garden by the fire pit. The room was gorgeous and the whole experience was beyond our expectations.

Great Venue, Staff & Location
Great venue in a central location. The staff were very accommodating and friendly! The breakfast was also very nice with a great selection on offer. Rooms are spacious, comfortable and the decor was unique and stylish. I would recommend staying here!

Perfect Romantic City Getaway
Perfection. We stayed for our honeymoon for two nights – initially planned one but immediately extended because of how much we loved Number 31. Beautiful hotel from head to toe, we especially loved the Art Deco rooms with modern amenities. Fantastic service from every staff member – who went out of their way for us. The eggs Benedict were the best I’ve ever had. A hidden gem that I fully recommend for any romantic city getaway!! Will be back.

A Hidden Gem
We have stayed here multiple times over the years and consider No 31 an oasis. I travel for business regularly but have rarely felt as warmly welcomed. The staff goes to great lengths to make sure we had everything we needed. The bed was amazing and Delia’s breakfast was delicious. We will be back, no doubt.
– Hotel Guest, June 2021
I’m a Dubliner, so know this place well! Stylish, spacious and comfortable. Gorgeous place to stay in the city, always enjoy the space and the garden! Great breakfast too. I’ll Be back again as soon as I can!

Fabulous Hotel with Warm Welcome and Delicious Breakfast!
We stayed at Number 31 on the June Bank Holiday. Can say, without a doubt, we were so happy to stay in this beautiful hotel. The staff were so helpful from the moment we arrived. It was so lovely to get up for breakfast the following morning and to be greeted by Delia who made sure we were well fed with her amazing breakfast, there was so much to choose from on her breakfast menu and loved the cranberry loaf, all the food was delicious, thank you, Delia! Thank you so much for making our weekend so special. We will be returning to this lovely hotel.
– Hotel Guest, June 2021
This was a very enjoyable stay. It was a great location, very close to the city centre. It was a bright, clean and very stylish interior. The staff were lovely, in particular Delia and her stunning breakfast! So accommodating and the food was delicious. She is a credit to herself. Would recommend this stay.
– Hotel Guest, December 2020
We had a lovely night’s stay in No.31. The staff were incredibly friendly, breakfast was delicious and both houses are worth seeing alone. The glittering honesty bar is good fun. It’s located in a beautiful part of Dublin to wander around, even under covid restrictions

Just a perfect place to stay. My mother and I have just returned from an 80th birthday trip back to my mum’s childhood in Dublin. I booked No 31 based on previous reviews and it more than exceeded my expectations. The location is perfect – very central and in old Georgian Dublin, beautiful. The staff bar none were all delightful, warm and friendly and could not do enough for us. The rooms were lovely and comfortable with all that we needed. The breakfasts were outstanding – thank you, Delia! I have travelled extensively and been fortunate to eat some great food but Delia’s breakfasts are the best I have ever had. Lovely, intimate eating space with an abundance of fruits, cereals, cheeses, homemade cranberry loaf, bread and scones. Then the a la carte menu which I defy anyone not to deliberate over because there are just so many fabulous options. Everything cooked perfectly and with a generous heart. We counted our stay in breakfasts rather than nights! Don’t hesitate to stay.
– Hotel Guest, February 2020
Just Magic. Wonderful, quiet, calm, perfect location that gives you a space to enjoy Dublin. The staff are extremely personable, helpful but non-intrusive which adds to the whole experience. The breakfast was delicious and the best porridge I have ever had.
– Hotel Guest, February 2020
No. 31 has been my hotel of choice in Dublin for the past decade. It’s the type of experience where one feels as if they’ve been at a favourite artsy friend’s home rather than a boring corporate room or faux “elegant” place. Lovely Delia’s cook-to-order breakfasts are amazing, she offers something for everyone: from full Irish to mushroom frittata, plus a healthy buffet of fruits, yoghurt & cereals. Her cranberry tea bread is something I dream about when I’m back home in the states
– Hotel Guest, September 2019
We love No 31. It is so well situated for Shops and Restaurants and a short walk to Stephan’s Green. The staff are wonderful and very helpful. The breakfast has to be the best in Dublin. It has the bonus of a City Garden which is lovely to sit outside! Our favourite place to stay is Dublin!
– Hotel Guest, September 2019
Located in the Georgian area of Dublin and a few minutes walk from St Stephens Green, Number 31 is a welcoming city hotel. The sunken lounge area with an honesty bar is a pleasant place to have a chat and wind down. The breakfast is excellent with a healthy buffet of fruits and cereals and a cook to order menu. French press coffee just right. Respectfully renovated. If you prefer a unique stay to a generic chain hotel this is a good choice.
– Hotel Guest, 27 August 2019
Number 31!!!! Charming, close to downtown, good variety of restaurants within walking distances, The most helpful staff one could ever hope to meet. Fabulous breakfast (included with stay)! There should be a “Delia” in charge of every good hotel kitchen, but there is only one of her and she is the greatest! Enjoy fresh natural ingredients, perfect Eggs Bennie, the best cranberry citrus bread ever, and so much more. Hope to come back again!
– Hotel Guest, 21 August 2019
Lovely quiet hotel in a pleasant area. Not far from the centre of town, the location for us was ideal. Very clean tidy room, small but sensibly furnished. Good shower. Great breakfast, cleverly laid out breakfast room, inviting guests to sit together and chat!! Staff were super smart, polite and helpful without being intrusive giving the hotel a laid back friendly vibe. Would stay again but choose a room in the older part.
