We stayed as a family of four in a family room this week. We really enjoyed staying here, it was clean, convenient and a very reasonable price - less than 500euros for the four of us for five nights, including yummy cooked breakfast and two loads of washing! The lodge was just as I expected from the reviews and photos - not new, or the top of the range, a little bit tired in the decor, but nothing to complain about! The reception staff were always very friendly and happy to help, offering to do the washing for us for 12 euros a load was a great help! We mainly caught taxis in to town from here, as it was cheaper than a bus for the four of us - between 8 and 12 euros, depending on traffic, and it cost us around 30 euros for a taxi to and from the airport. Taxis are very plentiful in Dublin!! Never any trouble hailing one at the front of the B&B. We enjoyed the local restaurants, at least 10-20 within close walking distance, our favourite was the american diner themed, Eddie Rockets, not very Irish, but fantastic burgers and about a two minute walk from the Lodge. We would definitely stay here again, close enough to walk to town if you wish, but far enough away to be away from all the christmas shindigs! For a family, ask for room 105, only a few stairs to lug your suitcases, and very quiet for sleeping - just a little bit of walking noise on our ceilings on occasions!
