“Stay Away”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2012

How is it possible for Bord Failte to allow this " hole " a licence to operate ? Do not stay here. The rooms are not properly hoovered. And the dust around the skirtings, radiators, press and beds is disgusting. We asked for an additional 2 towels but only received 1. The reason ? the clean towels were not delivered yet, neither were they the next morning. The breakfast was horribly presented and distasteful. When we asked for anything we were made to feel as if we were overstepping our boundaries. The manner of the owner was hurried and not at all welcoming. Not near good enough for a country " of a hundred thousand welcomes "!
This premises is not favourable to be called anything but disgraceful.

I scored the Deerpark Lodge 5 because I felt the poor ratings were unfair. It's a 3 at best. If you're looking for 5 star accomadation go to a 5 star hotel!! If you're looking for a bed and a ball washer go to the Deerpark Lodge!!
Yes the furniture and fittings were outdated but it was cheap and clean. The staff were friendly and relaxed. I didn't go to Dublin to sample the wonders of a B&B on the Castleknock Road but it was just the job to throw the head down after a concert and a feed of beer!!!
I really don't understand what people expect for E49 a night!

We booked this B & B because it was convenient to where we were attending a family get-together. castleknock Road and all the properties along the way are really smart - when you arrive at Deerpark Lodge you immediately sense this place is among many things neglected. The reception area is dingy and untidy. We booked double room and told we had the last room when we arrived a twin room which would not have been a problem. The room was tiny with very basic furniture - rusted radiator along a single bed - tiny window looking out on a scrap yard - old bathroom with dirty shower - we went to our party and decided to travel home again afterwards - I do not understand how a business such as this can continue - I owned and ran a guesthouse and I would be very embarrassed to present standards such as this.

Room Tip: Be careful booking on-line - go and have a look first.

Stayed for 2 nights over the June bank holiday. Our main Reason for picking this b&b was its proximity to phoenix park (bloom garden show was on). Arrived at 10am on check in day and was allowed to leave car in car park and walk into the park for the show. Paid £66 for the 2 nights plus £22 for 2 days breakfasts -which were superb, good quality items and pertly of it. The rooms are a bit tired but were quiet, bed could be more comfortable, but we both slept both nights. Overall would stay again if going to something in the park, otherwise not close enough to Luas or dart to be completely convenient to Dublin city centre.

The area is lovely, the b&b is right next to Phoenix Park which you can walk through to get to the city center. I was given a room in an apartment in a block next door to the lodge which I felt was a bit unnerving given I arrived late at night and was a lone traveler. The apartment room contained no information, phone etc. There was three small single beds and a tv which didn't have English menus / instructions. The tea cups in the room were not that clean.

The owner of the b&b wasnt very friendly or welcoming, I wasnt shown around the main lodge or asked if I was ok or given any local information on where to get some food etc. I really felt like I was an inconvinience. A nice scottish lady was quite friendly however the next morning.

They could do much better as its a modern place in a good location.

Room Tip: Ask if you will be staying in the main lodge or overflow appartment.

Unfortunately my daughter and I did not enjoy the stay at this B&B. When we arrived we were kept waiting for a good 10-15 minutes for anyone to welcome us. We didn't previously book breakfast as we had an early start each day, but one day we decided to book the night before as we had time but wished we hadn't. It was burnt and not good quality at all and certainly did not live up to the standard of full irish breakfast.

On the Friday evening the teenage son had a barbecue party and music was blaring until 5.00am that morning. Also the barbecue was placed right under our bedroom window so all the smoke came up so had to keep the window shut.

The bathroom was very shabby with cracked tiles and flooring and looked very amateur in fixtures and fittings.

Overall I did not find the people friendly or welcoming and I certainly would not recommend it to anyone. We have stayed in many B&B's and hotels over the years but this was one of the worst ever.
