“Great option over hotels in Dublin”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2013

My wife and I stayed for several days at this charming hotel during our stay in Dublin and really enjoyed it. Located not far from the city center in a quiet neighborhood, this B & B is walking distance from the sea, local rail line, and neighborhood town center where you can visit the local pub and crawl back home.

Upon our arrival we were ushered into the living room and offered tea / coffee and then moved up to our room. The room was nicely decorated with vaulted ceilings. The bed was cozy.

Breakfast in the morning was very good with a nice selection from breads and cereal to an Irish breakfast.

I stayed at Aberdeen Lodge in July 2013 and had a really wonderful time. The staff is extremely helpful and has a high sense of service, the hotel is very fresh and the breakfast is to die for. It feels like a home away from home and I would recommend it to everybody.

Lots of love from Sweden.

Extremely comfortable, hospitable, quiet, and charming. Michael Halpin is a very good host, and his staff was terrific. (Thanks, Daniel!). Four of us stayed for several days, and every afternoon or evening Daniel saw us coming he readied the whiskey glasses and ice for us. A fine lad! Mr. Halpin was also very helpful to me in January when I made the reservation, by suggesting other places to stay during our golf junket. And his major suggestion was the only place we stayed that compared with his. This is a very nice B&B hotel, exactly what we wanted, and not a major hotel with all services. But they are really good people. When I reserved I also booked our last night before flying back to the States with them. And then I asked whether they could stow our golf cases for us until we came back through, so the car would be a bit less crowded. Not a problem! An altogether good place to stay. A brisk walk through a leafy residential neighborhood from the hotel into Sandy Mount for several nice dining options, or a shorter walk to the rail stop for an 8 minute commute to Trinity College area for sightseeing and more dining and pub choices. Thank you, Aberdeen Lodge, for getting a great trip off to a great start!

I can honestly say that this B&B and their staff made my vacation, it was the icing on the cake. For starters, the location was perfect. It is located in a residential area, yet within minutes you can find yourself in the center of all the action in Dublin. The place itself was very quaint and looked as if everything was out of a painting. Words can not fully describe how wonderful and accommodating the staff was. They were all so warm and welcoming. Anytime I needed anything or had a question they were more than happy to assist me. I am so happy
that TripAdvisor helped me find this place and I will definitely be going back!

We started and ended our first visit to Ireland staying at Aberdeen Lodge. To visit Dublin, this is an ideal option. Only four stops off the DART from Pearse Station in the center of Dublin, this is a high end B&B in terms of accommodations & service; yet you experience a true family atmosphere as well. Ann was expecting when we left and delivered by the time we returned. Patrick and Ann, owners, and staff never missed a beat. Daniel welcomes evenings with a smile and complementary tea, coffee, etc. (don't forget to ask for cookies as well). Special breakfast requests off the menu are honored too! Every staff member is knowledgeable for directions, recommendations, etc.; a perfect blend of class and comfort, we will definitely return.

Room Tip: Rooms have different bed options. Make sure you clarify what you want; king v full and twin, and boo...

We had booked to stay in their sister property which had closed down as we'd stayed there before but I'd no grounds to worry.
We were warmly met with tea, coffee and freshly baked treats. Our rooms were huge - our son was thrilled with his adjoining room!
Breakfast was gorgeous - scrambled egg and salmon - sublime!
It's slightly out of our normal budget but you are treated like royalty and sitting in the larger, comfy chairs, you feel like it too!

Location of inn offers a nice, quiet alternative to a downtown hotel. Short walk to public transport and then 10 minutes into Dublin. We took advantage of the great weather and walked along the strand into Sandymount for a very good dinner at Browne's - a late night in a pub wasn't what we were looking for with two small kids. Pat was very helpful with suggesting things to do in Dublin with kids.
