Aberdeen Lodge

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Aberdeen Lodge is a very pretty and comfortable B&B. It is a short ride on the Dart train from Dublin and is in a very scenic neighborhood. The town is an enjoyable walk and you definitely know you are in Ireland but without the hustle and bustle of Dublin. The service was excellent.

I would really love to give this hotel 5 stars as it has everything:

It is situated in a very nice part of southern Dublin, few minutes walks to either the beach, nice pubs/restaurants in Sandymount village and to the DART, which takes you o Dublin center within minutes.
The staff is extremely welcoming and helpful, it´s a very nice atmosphere and the extensive breakfast-menu is delicious.
Furniture, tiles, bathroom - nothing is quite new, but everything is clean and working.
There´s only one problem which we felt was huge: the building is not soundproof at all. You hear every spoken word in the rooms around you, every step seems to make the whole building squeal and you always know when other guests have to use the bathroom at night. This makes it more than hard to get a good night´s rest and kind of destroyed our opinion abput the hotel - as guest you don´t even have a chance of being considerately silent.

The owners welcomed me on the first night and I was given every possible bit of information about the area. A 5 min run to the beach and 20 min walk to a little village where there are different options for dinner. The 'Dart' is the tram that is a 10-15min journey into the city centre - one of my hesitations about staying out of the city. This service ran frequently and was very easy to get to from the lodge. Great choice for breakfast and would recommend for solo, families or couples.

We were a bit apprehensive at first as away from the city center, but quickly found that to be advantageous and would highly recommend it. The city is just like any other city, crowded and noisy, so we really enjoyed the tranquil location after a busy day. The staff were all friendly and helpful providing recommendations and booking a day trip for us. We enjoyed our morning breakfast overlooking the beautiful backyard. Our room was comfortable, thought a bit crowded as a lot of furniture in the room.

Dublin is the typical busy city. We were so lucky to find this oasis outside in the quiet neighborhood of Sandymount. We were welcomed with Tea and cookies and brought upstairs to our room. The Aberdeen is very comfortable. We were able to meet the family and felt like we were one of them. We didn't find the walk to the train station difficult at all. We were able to get to the city center without problem. We rented our car when we left Dublin, since it wasn't necessary to have one while in the city. One really felt safe here, the doors are locked at all times. You have to ring the bell to come back inside.

Room Tip: If you are looking for a quiet, clean place away from the busy city center, this is your place.

We recommend this place especially because of the quiet neighborhood. Lovely place to stay for a few nights. The owner and his family is staying at this place. We had a very warm welcome and a drink in the lounge room with plenty of recommandations of restaurants and places to see in Dublin.

I loved everything about this lodge. You feel like a part of a family, and the staff is extremely attentive, kind and thoughtful.
My only issue was the location, although it's an absolutely beautiful area, I found it hard to get to the city centre with limited knowledge of the transport systems.
