I've been to Boston quite a few times now and always find something new to enjoy. The Aisling is one of my favorite finds in quite a while. James and Dympna are wonderful hosts and the bed and breakfast is both beautiful and provides modern amenities, like parking, cable, and wifi. The breakfasts are remarkable, featuring a fresh hot dish,...

Wonderful breakfasts prepared by Dympna and all guests share the same big table with James at the head. A great way to start the day chatting with fellow guests. James advises what to do and where to go and other guests chip in with ideas. This place is unique. It's a bit further out from the centre than most hotels...

The location of this B&B is excellent with good bus links to downtown or further afield to Harvard. With the suggestion from James, we purchased a pass which made trips even easier. We dined at Toro and Stella, both a short walk away.We stayed 3 nights in Salthill on the second floor which was a pretty room facing the rear...

Our experience at Aisling was fantastic. James gave us excellent resturant reccomendations within walking distance. The neighborhood is perfectly located within walking distance to everything including the freedom triail, feniuel square and the Boston Commons. Our room was perfect for 3 girls on a weekend adventure. The decor was adorable, beds comfortable and a very modern bathroom. The three of...

We had a lovely stay on the South End of Boston at the Aisling B& B. James picked us up from the airport which was very nice. He gave us pointers as to where to go to dinner nearby. The house is located in a very central location to many great dining locations. Our room was nice, quiet and cozy....

Thank you for the great review, it seems like you had a great time without any complaints. While your 4-star review is good, it actually hurts our rankings, would you consider revising it to 5-stars? In any case, thank you for staying with us and we look forward to seeing you again.

We stayed at The Aisling Bed and Breakfast at start of our holiday to New England, James very kindly met us at the airport and drove us to the B&B. The house is in a lovely location, beautiful brown stone houses and you can easily walk into the centre or take a short bus ride. James and Dympna were very...

Aisling B and B is a wonderful place to stay if you value being treated like a person, enjoy a restful night sleep,and would rather be teated like a friend than a customer.I had the sense I was in Boston rather than a large urban setting.

Good location, clean, and delicious food!! The owners are very friendly and provided helpful sightseeing info.

For our 3 nights in Boston this B & B was just perfect. We didn`t want a large impersonal modern hotel downtown, and this lovely characterful home B & B was exactly what we hoped for. Our room, Salthill, was lovely and very quiet at the back of the house upstairs. Very congenial hosts in James and Dympna, who had...

Staying in South End

Neighbourhood Profile
South End
Stroll down the beautiful brownstone lined streets while capturing views of Boston’s tallest buildings from a distance. Some of Boston’s best restaurants are scattered around this neighborhood. There are many gems to be found, from jazz clubs to classy bars and restaurants. It is also home to art galleries, interesting boutiques, artsy stores and SOWA open market during the summer months. The South End is a true find in the city, with a more residential feeling than Back Bay.
