Tara Hall guest house is located close to Dun Laoghaire seafront and a 5-minute walk to the DART light rail. Tara Hall offers free car parking and Wi-Fi in this regency style house dating back to 1800's. Surrounding areas include the villages of Dalkey and Killiney. Dublin city centre is only 20 minutes away by DART or by car, and the guest house is 45 minutes' from Dublin Airport on the Patton Flyer. Dun Laoghaire Harbour is only 5 minutes' away.
Appearance from outside - nice old Georgian house.
Very shabby - threadbare sheet, lumpy mattress, needs redecorating badly (eg why not paint over the shape left by the old loo roll holder from when it was last decorated - so simple to do!) -paint splashes on shower, dirty walls etc etc. Bathroom smelt of old drains. This could be such a lovely place with a bit of care. Owner a bit intimidating.
Location, near sea, Dart. Hospitable staff
We only stayed the one night and had a family room which we found suited our needs adequately.
Only spent one night there, booked it because of location, being handy for the port, and good value.
No lift, stairs difficult for a friend who has a very painful ankle.
Very friendlyand helpful,great breakfast,very homely place,nice location and good value for money
I would not recommend it to my worst enemy. It was dreadful. I am surprised that they are allowed to call it a guest house .Having stayed in various places through the world this is by far the worst experience I have ever had.
