Just spent one night. We were upgraded on arrival to a spacious room , 101, overlooking the street as the standard room had some unknown problem. This was good news!
Staff were very friendly and room was very clean.
There were two beds in the room, both very low and a chair in the room would have been welcome as there was space for it.
The en suite was small but practical.
Location is very central, but noisy on a Fri night....didn’t mind too much.
Pricey, but I suppose that’s typical Dublin at the moment!
I would recommend.

We stayed here for 3 nights for our first trip to Dublin and it was great. Friendly helpfull staff ( Sean), the rooms,although a bit small, were en suite and clean. Full Irish breakfast was substantial (plenty of other choices) and always piping hot with as much coffee/tea as you wanted. Ideal location just off O'Connell st, and a short walk to Temple Bar. The restaurant and traditional pub attached were fab,with great live music every night. Would recommend.

We stayed here just 1 night. I picked it because it was walking distance to Connolly Train Station, because we had an early train the next morning. Sean at the front desk, was the essence of Irish hospitality! But it is an older property on a busy street with squeeky floors, with rooms right over a bar with music going til about 11:30pm. We knew that in advance, so we were prepared. Breakfast wasnt bad either. It met our needs, & I would recommend if you are doing the same, but not for a longer stay.

We arrived for a 4 night stay and from start to finish the stay was wonderful. The staff in the hotel are so friendly and helpful and will help you with anything you need, also the cleaners are friendly and always say hello. The hotel room was extremely clean and beds was very comfortable, the room has a tea and coffee facilities which are refilled daily along with shampoos and a hairdryer, there's also a safe in the room ( free of charge ) which isn't normally the case. The hotel is very central and only a 10 minute walk into temple bar and some of the main attractions. If I returned to Dublin this hotel would be my choice of stay.

Do not touch this guesthouse with a barge pole. My family and I had a four night stay at this guesthouse. The rooms have little or no soundproofing, the nightlife on Talbot street is considerably loud, so you have absolutely no chance of sleep until the late small hours. One of our party had a non functioning TV, when we complained we were given total BS about all the TVs being upgraded and it would be back working the next day, needless to say the TV was still non functioning when we left. There is NO LIFT at this place, so beware. Our shower was very basic and tired with poor water pressure. One evening my parter and I went out for an evening meal, when we got back we knocked on the exterior door, the man behind the reception desk was reading a newspaper, he didn’t even raise his eyes and totally ignored us. It fell to another member of staff to let us in. IGNORANT. In short this place is awful, do yourself a favour a find somewhere else.

I would research other places in the area before booking here. The staff were nice but the location of the hotel is above a bar that plays music loudly late into the night it would’ve been nice to have known this beforehand. We understood booking in a city there might be noise or it might be smaller rooms but for over 200 a night it was pretty disappointing and felt like the hotel marketed itself as higher end when it’s not. Bathroom had mold and room wasn’t super clean. Location was good but I’d look elsewhere for more comparable places.

The rooms are small, which I could deal with, but the bathroom mold was horrible. High in the shower, all over the vent, along the tile grout and along the bottom of the wall seams with the base. You just were afraid to touch anything in there. You can't bend over at the sink without the bathroom door open, that's how close it was in our room (#306). Maybe some are bigger, don't know? The supplied hair dryer cord was fastened to one of the bed nightstands in the corner of the room, with a bracket and screws. Nowhere near a mirror. They did provide another dryer when we asked, it just seemed really strange where they had the one in the room.

The Celtic is central to everything. The GM Sean staff is extremely friendly and accommodating and allowed us to store our luggage as well as accepted some luggage that had arrived late from the airline (while we went sightseeing). The breakfast was a full on Irish breakfast and our waitress Margaret was sunshine in the morning. The hotel is connected to 2 pubs (that I believe they own) next door that offers great food and drinks for a great price. This is not a tourist trap. They offer live music and have a “local” feel. The bartenders and waiters are great and remembered us when we came back in. We stayed there several times and Cataa became our “go to” waitress. This made the restaurant, the pub AND the hotel feel like home.

1 star for one very important reason - mold. The room had mold in the shower that looked to be black mold. The room smelled moldy to the point that we agreed felt like a health hazard.

We spoke with the front desk and asked to change rooms; they denied, saying that they were entirely booked. We were not going to sleep somewhere that we considered a health hazard, so we packed our bags and booked at another hotel for our entire stay.

I wish I would have read the other reviews that mentioned this issue before booking, this seems to be a common complaint with the hotel.

Does the guesthouse provide its free shuttle to/from Heuston train station?
Answer from Mari

No. I would not recommend staying at Celtic Lodge Guest House. Floor creaked, room was dirty, bed was horrible. The bathroom screen would not close, no water pressure. Cobwebs on ceiling. Could hear noise from other rooms. Could not wait to leave there. Definitely the worst accommodation I have ever stayed in. Over priced for what they offer. There are other stays at similar rates which are much nicer.

Answer from Longfordian

Parking is available in a nearby multi storey car park. €25 per 24 hours. You can get a voucher at the Celtic Lodge that gives you 50% off the parking thus 24 hours is only €12.50

Yes, they have about 5 hangers but I brought a few with me just in case. Also, there is a store right nearby that you can buy some hangers if you need more for like 1 euro.

I would contact the lodge directly. I stayed in a single room two separate times. I found the room that was higher up to be more spacious. I don't know if that applies to double rooms or not.
