Why use PBID as an abbreviation?
During our review, you might sometimes see us refer to Portobello B&B in Dublin (24 characters long, including blanks) as PBID (4 characters long) for the following 3 reasons:
- We created the acronym by taking the first letter of every word (which was very groundbreaking, we know)
- We’re lazy and PBID is simpler and easier for reviewing purposes
- We save 20 characters every time we do this
So, just a heads up that we’ll be using this abbreviation sometimes, so you’re not left scratching your head and wondering what the heck we’re talking about whenever we refer to PBID throughout the remainder of this review.
Also, we’ll sometimes use PBID62470 which is a combination of the abbreviation with the Travel Help Guru post id, which we sometimes use for THG tracking purposes to further differentiate abbreviations from one another.

That said, you can use the tips below to hopefully get a great Portobello B&B promotional offer, in addition to the deal at the top of this page.
Use Google to find the best Portobello B&B coupon promo codes and discounts
This is one of the most effective ways to get a PBID discount, even though it can be a bit time consuming.
In a nutshell, you want to get on Google or a different search engine of your choice and do searches for things like:
- Best Portobello B&B promotion code or available promotion codes
- Most recent Portobello B&B voucher code
- Popular Portobello B&B coupons
Sometimes, being more specific can help improve your search results, but you can also try keeping your search queries for PBID simpler, like this:

Questions about Portobello B&B special rates that can save you more money
In addition to trying the tactics above, if you can find the contact information for someone who can book your stay at PBID, ask this person (let’s call him or her The Booker) the following questions that can help you save money.
What tips are there to save money when booking a room at Portobello B&B?
In general, traveling to Dublin off season, when it’s less busy, will help you save money when booking a room at PBID, but it never hurts to ask The Booker what other strategies there are to get a better rate than the standard rate (aka special savings opportunities), as well as what the rate plan policies are in general.
How can you avoid extra fees at Portobello B&B in Dublin?
Ideally, you want to avoid as many hidden fees as you can, so it pays to ask The Booker for PBID whether there is an extra person fee, early check in fee, late check out fee, wifi / internet access fee, and in some cases, an additional resort fee.
Does Portobello B&B offer holiday promo codes?
Sometimes, you can find great holiday specials when securing a place to stay, and The Booker for PBID would likely know of any upcoming holiday discounts.
What holiday packages does Portobello B&B offer to guests?
This is a slightly different than the question above, in that you might discover a package that involves excursions, shopping, or dining in Dublin that save you money that way.
Does Portobello B&B have student discounts, senior discounts, or military discounts?
Here’s one of our favorite THG tips: investigate whether you can get a specific discount type, like a student discount, senior discount, or military discount when booking your PBID stay, since these kinds of discount types are often not publicly advertised.
Does Portobello B&B have any friends and family discount programs?
This is another great question to ask The Booker for PBID62470, because getting friends and family discounts gets you instant benefits that is good for you but also them (since it encourages you to get more people to stay there).
Are there any special offers available for couples at Portobello B&B?
Similar to the approach above, you can ask The Booker about PBID couple discounts for romantic getaways, which sometimes works, depending on the accommodation.
How often does Portobello B&B release new coupon codes?
If there are, indeed, PBID coupon codes, promo codes, etc., then The Booker would be the best person to ask about how often such Portobello B&B discounts are released.
What are the blackout dates for Portobello B&B promotional codes?
This is a follow-up question to the question above, because if you discover any PBID promotional codes, they will probably be subject to availability, and there will likely be black out dates when you won’t be able to use them (like during the busy season) and The Booker can tell you what those blackout dates are.
Are there every any Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals for Portobello B&B?
This one is more of a longshot, but it doesn’t hurt to ask the Booker if they ever have any black friday or cyber monday specials for PBID62470 (assuming you can wait that long).

And now, let the questions begin…
Is Portobello B&B in a good location in Dublin for you?
Where you want to be located in Dublin is one of the most important questions for you to answer.
Of course, it all depends on why you’ll be in Dublin in the first place, and whether the location of PBID will be helpful to you or not.
For example, are you traveling to Dublin for business or pleasure? Visiting friends or family there? Simply want to soak up the sights and attractions?
It’s very simple: decide what you want to actually accomplish (what you want to see or do) in Dublin. And then decide whether Portobello B&B’s location is a benefit for that or not.
Does Portobello B&B have a pool?
An indoor pool or outdoor pool (or even super swanky rooftop pool) might or might not be important to you, depending on how you’re planning to spend your time in Dublin and who you’re traveling with.
For example, if you’re traveling by yourself on business, it might not be important at all, but if you’re traveling to Dublin with friends, family, or children, and you think you’d enjoy relaxing by the pool at PBID, it might be an important consideration whether there is an indoor or outdoor swimming pool, whether it’s heated or not and has a pool bar or not, and so on.
If a pool is very important for your stay, THG recommends that you do a specific search for the best deals on Dublin hotels with pools.
Does Portobello B&B have a steam bath, sauna, hot tub, spa, or spa tub?
While you’re exploring the pool options at PBID62470, you might as well check whether there’s a steam bath, sauna, hot tub, full service spa, or spa tub that you might be able to enjoy to make your stay even more relaxing.
Does Portobello B&B offer free wi-fi?
This is a huge consideration when considering whether to stay at PBID, since people rely on wi fi (wireless internet access) for everything from business work to entertainment.
Travel Help Guru recommends that you double check that PBID62470 has, at the very least, free wifi in lobby areas, as well as more private options for fast, solid, reliable internet access.
Does the check-in time and check-out time at Portobello B&B work for you?
Check-in times and check-out times can vary a lot depending on the accomodation, so be sure to verify whether the check in time and check out time at PBID works with your schedule, as well as whether you can do a mobile check in to make the process even easier.
Does the cancellation policy for Portobello B&B work for you?
On the off-chance you have to cancel your reservation, check the cancellation policy for PBID so that you can avoid a cancellation fee on your credit card or debit card.
Does Portobello B&B have good transportation options for you?
Being able to get around Dublin easily will probably be an important consideration for you, so consider the related transportation issues and questions below, and see if PBID will sufficiently meet your needs.
Does Portobello B&B offer free airport shuttle service?
If you’re flying into an airport as a way of traveling to Dublin, you will want to ensure that you can easily get to and from the airport from PBID, and if you can do this for free with an airport shuttle service, instead of paying a taxi fare, bus fare, or for some other means of travel, that’s even better.
Does Portobello B&B offer free parking?
If you have a car during your stay in Dublin, be sure to verify whether PBID62470 offers free parking, because ideally you want to save some money by not paying for self parking or valet parking, if there’s any way you can avoid this fee.
Is the public transportation near Portobello B&B good?
If you don’t have a car when visiting Dublin, investigate what kind of transportation PBID provides to nearby sites, as well as the best way to get around, whether it’s by subway, train, taxi, bus, Uber, Lyft, etc, especially since a nearby subway station, train station, bus station, or taxi station in walking distance can make all the difference in the world.
Does Portobello B&B have enough beds for you?
If you’re staying at PBID with multiple people, this answer is important, because a single twin bed, double bed, queen bed, or king bed is fine if you’re on your own, but if there are others you’d rather not share a bed with, it’s worth checking whether you’ll have a couple double beds or queen sized beds for the sleeping arrangements, or perhaps even a double sofa that you can pull out and make into an extra bed.
Does Portobello B&B have good food options?
Depending on your needs, consider whether PBID offers a free breakfast, and if so, whether it’s a simple daily continental breakfast / buffet breakfast, or something fancier like a brunch or some kind of fine dining experience with exquisite cuisine and award winning food.

Does Portobello B&B have daily maid service?
Ideally, you want PBID to have clean bed sheets and fresh towels, whether or not there’s a daily cleaning service, and if you need laundry done, you might check whether there’s a laundromat or dry cleaning service nearby if these services aren’t available on site.
Are you happy with the amenities at Portobello B&B?
In addition to being happy with the services, you’ll also want to make sure you’re happy with the hotel amenities at PBID, such as the business amenities, exercise facilities and gym equipment (whether or not there’s a 24 hour fitness center), whether rooms come with perks like electric fireplaces, shopping options nearby, etc.
