“Wonderful B&B Experience”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

We stayed at the Lorcan Lodge near the Dublin Airport at the beginning and the end of our 3-week trip to Ireland. The location is perfect and Rose, the owner, is wonderful! She met us with a smile even though we arrived while she was serving breakfast to her guests! We had flown from California, arrived very early in the morning, and were exhausted! She gave us tea and toast and we checked in quite early. We had no euro change, so she loaned us euro coins to ride the nearby bus into Dublin. It was quite easy and with parking right outside her door, we didn't have to drive into Dublin!
Our triple room was lovely, immaculate and definitely met our needs!
Rose welcomed us back on our last night as well! We had an early flight and she served us an early, wonderful breakfast! I can't say enough good things about Rose and her home!. We all felt really welcome!! I highly recommend the Lorcan Lodge! Did I mention that it was immaculate??

My parents and I stayed at Lorcan Lodge last month for three nights during our stay in Dublin. Rose was incredibly gracious and welcoming. She was always available to help and took care of all details for us, even ones we hadn't considered for ourselves. She reserved our taxi back to the airport and had a breakfast waiting for us in the refrigerator prepared even at the early 6am hour of our departure. On the other mornings she had fresh coffee, yogurt and full breakfast menu which she prepares on an as-ordered basis. We stayed in bed and breakfasts for most of our Ireland & Scotland trip but hands down this was the best. Accommodations were remarkably clean and private. The b&b is located about 20 minutes out of Dublin city center but worked perfect for us as we would cab into Dublin for the day and explore on foot, then cab home for. I would give a 10 star review if I could. Also great location for proximity to airport.

We wanted to end our first Ireland trip with a homey B&B, not a huge hotel on airport property, and Lorcan Lodge was a good choice. It is in a residential neighborhood and it felt like we staying at someone's home. (I'm pretty sure it IS a converted home, actually.) There is a mall nearby (walking distance) for food or a movie theater, and the airport is about 2 miles away. We took a taxi the next morning, something the hostess quickly arranged when we mentioned it upon arrival.

Our room was a reasonably-sized three-twin room (with a small but functional in-room bathroom) that overlooked the neighborhood; with the windows open, we were very comfortable relaxing there before heading out to dinner. However, other members of our party got a cramped room (one queen bed) with afternoon sun, and they were roasting hot in there since it was a warm, sunny day.

For airport convenience, I would definitely recommend Lorcan Lodge.

Lorcan Lodge is a clean and comfortable b&b not far from the airport, located in a quiet and green residential area. The owners are helpful and friendly. Although it's not so close to the city centre, it is connected by several bus lines, with the bus stop within walking distance.

Definitely recommended for people in search of comfort and quiet outside the busy city centre.

The Lorcan Lodge is just that...home away from home. The house is spotless, the breakfast was delicious,and there is even an area in the yard where you can enjoy your tea in Rose's beautiful garden.The ensuite rooms include hairdryers and televisions. A mall is within walking distance from the lodge. We wished we could have stayed longer but were only in Dublin for an overnight layover before our flight back to the States. A big thank you to the McDermott family for all their hospitality and kindness during our brief visit! We hope to visit you again.

Lorcan Lodge B&B is worth every eurocent they charge you. Rose is a mum to everyone, the place is absolutely spotless clean and you couldn 't ask for more. The rooms are very comfortable, great ensuite and we couldn't find anything wrong.

The Lorcan Lodge is a cute, clean place to stay, conveniently located between the Dublin city center and the airport. Rose was very welcoming, and very helpful about where to go and what is near. The rooms are small but very clean and it had the best shower we had in Ireland! The #16 bus runs about every 10 minutes to either the city center or the airport and is only about 3 blocks away. It may be that we had just been spoiled by our other stays around Ireland that this hotel wasn't rated excellent by my husband and I, but I would recommend it highly for a short stay or for people who like to be cozy. It is quite lovely.

Room Tip: I would pay the extra money for the larger rooms if I went back.
