We visited Aberdeen Lodge, the first few days in July, we stayed in this lovely hotel for 3 nights. The area of Ballsbridge is lovely, far away enough from the hustle and bustle of the city centre but also close enough to travel in (10mins on the local DART).
The hotel was comfy, very clean and very welcoming, slightly over priced but so is everything, we found out in Dublin !!!
A very good choice of menu for your breakfast and the full Irish went down a treat to start the day.
We would definatly recommend this hotel for a relaxing, friendly Irish break , just on the outskirts Dublin.
