Leeson Bridge House B&B 1 Upper Leeson St., in Fitzwilliam Quay, +353 1 668 2255, Dublin 4. 30 rooms. E59+/2; booking.com E98. Breakfast. Free parking. Located on a street of Georgian Houses adjacent to Dublin’s Grand Canal, this guest house is itself within a Georgian House and the special architectural features have been preserved.
Room 117 has high ceilings and free WiFi that works.
However, it also has a very small “wet room” bathroom, in which the shower had no floor tray so the
water went throughout the bathroom floor and down a center drain, but still required using all available towels to sop it up. Actually, I got used to it, and for the price I was able to tolerate it. As an aside, the first time I saw this type of bathroom was about 30 years ago in Switzerland and, indeed, it seems to be a Swiss innovation that was brought here by an advocate. The idea is that the natural heat will dry out the space in a short time, but that turns out not to be the reality.
