Dublin B&B Egans HouseEver wondered what it’s like to run a B&B? Or just wanted to know a bit more about your hosts? Meet Pat and Monica Finn, owners of Dublin bed and breakfast Egans House, who have been welcoming guests to their home for over a decade…

What is your favourite thing about Dublin?

My favourite thing about Dublin is its friendly atmosphere. The feedback from guests is that people are very warm and helpful generally, especially when they seek information regarding places they wish to visit.

Dublin has a variety of unique visitor attractions. The most popular I believe is Dublin Zoo, then the Guinness Storehouse and the Jameson Distillery.

Which breakfast item served at Egans House is most popular with your guests?

I would have to say our scrambled egg – it is a firm favourite with guests.

What compliment do you most frequently receive from guests?

The very friendly service and relaxed atmosphere they experience when they stay here.

What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever found left in a bedroom?

That is tricky – a homemade hanging noose and, on another occasion, a blow-up doll!

What’s your favourite thing about running a B&B?
