Connolly Station- Terminus for trains from West of Ireland, Northern Ireland and Dart Services from Dun Laoghaire Ferrryport.
4 mins walk
Take the lift/escalator down from the main station area to ground level. When outside you will see Talbot Street in front of you, with a small red convenience store (Spar) on the corner. Walk down Talbot Street towards The Spire of Dublin, a giant metal monument which is visible in the skyline throughout Dublin. About 200 meters down Talbot Street you will come to the junction with Lower Gardiner Street. At this junction turn left and The Adelphi is located about 10 meters further on the left of Lower Gardiner Street.
Heuston Station - Terminus for trains from South and Southwest Ireland. 5 mins by tram
Walk outside the front door of the station and in front of you there is a Luas (Tram) stop. Tickets are purchased from the machine on the platform. The Luas terminates at Connolly Station so from here one can use the directions above to locate The Adelphi. Alternatively a taxi rank is located to the side of Heuston Station. The fare direct to The Adelphi is approximately €8.
Busaras (Central Bus Station) - Coach Services from the entire island, U.K. and continental Europe. 2 mins walk
Walk outside the front door of the station, cross the road and keep to the left. Simply walk around the corner (to the right) here and you come onto Lower Gardiner Street. The Adelphi is located approximately 50 meters up this street on the right.
Dun Laoghaire Ferryport- Ferries from Holyhead and Merseyside. 15 mins by car/rail
On foot- The most cost effective way to reach us by foot is by using The DART (Electric Train) which runs along the entire coast of Dublin. The DART station in Dun Laoghaire is located within the confines of the ferryport. The cost for a one-way ticket to Connlly Station is 2 euro approximately. Please be sure to take the Northbound DART towards the city-centre.
By car- Turn right upon departure from the ferryport & follow Road signs listed as: 'AN LAR' or 'CITY CENTRE'.(2) Upon arrival at the city centre, you must cross the river Liffey. (3) Watch for the gray iron railway bridge on poles, known locally as the LOOPLINE RAILWAY BRIDGE crossing the Liffey, downstream on the right, as you cross the liffey. (4) Follow the Loopline railway bridge onto Beresford Place, from EDEN Quay. Turn left on Beresford Place onto Lower Gardiner Street. The Adelphi is located on the right of Lower Gardiner Street.
Dublin Port-Ferries from Holyhead and Merseyside. 5 mins by car/bus
Dublin Ferryport is located at the mouth of the Liffey, downstream from, but closest to the city centre, on the north bank of the river liffey. Irish Ferries & Stena both operate services from here. From our location, it is easiest of the 2 Ferryports to access, as it is relatively nearby. There is no regular bus service to & from Dublin Port, but Shuttle buses are laid on by Dublin Bus to meet most scheduled arrivals & departures. These bus services operate from The Central Bus Station, and operate according to Ferry arrival & departure times.
For those with cars (1) Turn LEFT onto EAST WALL ROAD upon leaving Dublin Port. (2)Turn RIGHT onto NORTH WALL QUAY. (3)Take a LEFT onto the FIRST LIFFEY BRIDGE. (4) Take a RIGHT onto GEORGES QUAY, & get into the lane closest to the river. (5) Take the NEXT RIGHT onto the 2ND LIFFEY BRIDGE. Cross this bridge, do not turn left. Get ready to take a left turn onto Lower Gardiner Street. THe Adelphi is located on your right.

Wait until the Bus stops at the Central Bus Station, but make sure to get off this Bus upon arrival at the Central Bus Station, as it then continues on its journey to connect with the Train Stations.

I don't know why many of these reviews are so bad, it's a very good place to stay in. It's very close to the city center, the bus number 41 which goes from the airport to the guesthouse stops in front of it.
we were four girls friends, we booked a room for four, but there were a problem and the owner gave us two rooms for the same price, so very good, the only bad thing was the stairs... a lot of them.. but it's just one thing, the rooms were very clean, and the heat worked good, the bed clothes clean and very warm, and the water from the shower... be careful with it... you will be as a chicken in the oven... but it's better to be like that, rather to be cold in winter.
the Service... we are Spanish so we are always expecting to be with people like us, they were very serious, but very polite.
about the breakfast... a little bit short, but fine, if you wanted Irish breakfast you have it, and if not, If you prefered continental you have it as well.
and about the noises... don't be so particular... there are the normal noises, I could sleep one night because I was very tired and nervouse, and I didn't hear anything, so please...
So Luke, I will talk about your guesthouse to everybody, that was great.
This is a Trusted Review. Why?
Great location,close to transport facilities,stayed in single room..to put it shortly appropriate for the price you pay(but clean anyway).Tasty breakfast included in price,another advantage.On the other hand not really pleasant and helpful one of receptionist,maybe cause I checked in around midnight
This is a Trusted Review. Why?
Overall ok, two bad things: the mattresses are old and need replacing and the windows are not noise-proof but I would think the latter one is a problem with almost all B&Bs at that location and you get some traffic at the front and trains at the back of the house. Breakfast and service have been absolutely fine.
I am very unhappy with my stay here at Adelphi Guesthouse, first I had to drag my huge suitcases up (and back down when I was lucky enough to leave) 4 flights of stairs because they did not have a lift. The windows are very thin, it sounds like they are open therefore it is very noisy all day and a little at night. My toilet wouldn't flush which I found to be very frustrating! The only good thing I have to say about this place is they have very good water pressure in the shower, which I don't think makes any of the other issues with the place any better. I would not recommend staying here to anyone!
This is a Trusted Review. Why?
Could have done with drink making facilities in the room & background music in the breakfast room as sparse and therefore you could hear other peoples conversations etc
