About Us

At Tipperary House we want you to feel you’ve found a home in the city of Dublin whether you stay for one night or a week.Our boutique family-run B&B was refurbished and redecorated in 2013 with soft colours to give it a cute and homely vibe with a vintage twist.

From floral patterns to bunting, candle lights, you will feel relaxed and comfortable here.

Our B&B is ideal for families, couples, small groups, and independent travelers who are looking for some peace and quiet in Dublin city centre.

We have triple glazed windows to keep the sounds of the city out and far enough away from the noisy nightlife found in Temple Bar to help you get a good night’s sleep.

Of course we’re close enough to the city centre – 20 minute walk, 10 minutes by Luas and 5 minutes by taxi if you want to experience the buzz.

If you’ve time for breakfast choose from:

Tea, coffee, hot chocolate, and orange juice

Cereals, toast, fresh fruit and yoghurt

We can also book tours and plan itineraries out of the city and around Ireland. Looking for a real Dublin experience? We can give you suggestions you’ll love to give you a taste of Dublin.

Our Story

Once upon a time Parkgate Street in Dublin was full of bed & breakfasts.

about-img-2Tipperary House is one of the few surviving bed and breakfasts and lives on to welcome a new generation of travelers.

In 1970 Tom and Tess Mulvey decided to take over a B&B.

In 2011 Tom and Tess retired. Their son Mark who spent the first years of his life in the B&B took over the business.

Mark had stayed in B&Bs and hostels on his travels through Europe, Australia, South East Asia, South America and Canada, and was full of ideas for the perfect boutique B&B/hostel.

Having traveled extensively and being a Dublin native, Mark knows the difference that including some ‘real Dublin’ attractions can make to a break in Dublin. He loves his job helping tourists and visitors to Dublin enjoy their stay.

Though retired, Tom, can still be found helping out when Mark’s busy and is also full of tips of where to go and what to do.

We got our name from a previous owner who was from County Tipperary and called the B&B Tipperary House.
