Tara Hall is a regency-style house built in the early 1800's. It is the former residence of William Monk Gibbon, famous Irish poet and writer. The B&B is conveniently located just 10km from Dublin City Centre and is also near the sea.
Tara Hall is an ideal accommodation for travellers desiring access to both the activity of Dublin City Centre and the tranquillity of Dun Laoghaire. The lovely bed and breakfast is situated on the main DART (light rail) line to the city, and is also a 15-minute walk from Dun Laoghaire Town Centre and the ferry port.
The accommodation proves delightful for fans of literature, as the regency-style, 19th-century house is the former residence of William Monk Gibbon, a famous Irish poet and writer. In the dining room where guests now enjoy breakfast, Gibbon once hosted dances and readings.
Tara Hall features seven bright, comfortable bedrooms, six of which are ensuite. The rooms include cable TV, tea/coffee making facilities and free WiFi. Guests may also utilize laundry facilities and the car park.
