Locality & Noise

Welcome to Dublin’s Creative Quarter!

The location is amazing, you could not have picked a better spot in the city centre! All major tourist attractions, shopping and other entertainment places are located within a short walking distance.

It is important that all guests are aware before booking and after booking with us that the property is located in the very lively location, and is surrounded by bars, pubs, clubs and restaurants. With that comes the downside of the locality which is important for our guests and visitors to be aware of.

Grafton Guesthouse does not have rooms at the back or quiet rooms. Given the building’s history and its Victorian-era features requests for quiet, back rooms, and/or low floor rooms cannot be fulfilled.

Please ensure to consider the above information carefully before your stay with us.
