The Anchor House is a 22-room guesthouse situated at the south end of Lower Gardiner Street's hotel hub. It features (not surprisingly) a subtle nautical theme, and it’s most definitely a well-run ship with a convenient location and a friendly staff.
While the Anchor House's exterior is late 19th-century brick, the interior is à la today, with cheerful yellow walls and modest wooden furniture. And like many of the Georgian house-hotels in Dublin, the Anchor House is comprised of a 200-year-old building in the front and a separate, newer building in the back. The pros and cons of each are pretty self-evident. The newer extension has an elevator and is accessible by car from a back alley.
There's no ramp to the original home, and windows are quaintly original (read: not soundproof). All rooms have a private bathroom, telephone and satellite TV. Many Anchor House rooms also offer views of the back parking lot (and not much else).
Breakfast is served for an extra charge. Wi-Fi is free throughout.

About the The Anchor Guesthouse neighborhood
Starting just above the Liffey, Gardiner Street shoots north from the Custom House, a behemoth of an 18th-century building located near Butt Bridge and across the water from Trinity College. Although not particularly scenic, Gardiner Street Lower offers a wealth of hotels and B&Bs with proximity to the Henry Street and O’Connell Street shopping areas.
