We have had the pleasure of staying at South Lodge many times over the past number of years, discovering it on our honeymoon and bringing clients there ever since. The property itself is the former gatehouse of the Jameson (of whiskey distilling fame) family estate and is now a comfy B&B along the Strand Road in Portmarnock. The location i within easy walking distance of Portmarnock beach and abuts the Portmarnock Golf Club (grand views from upstairs over the course, especially in the mornings). It is within 15 minutes of Dublin Airport, is on the bus line to the city center and has convenient off-road private parking. There are three rooms ensuite which ooze ambiance (overhead beams, quaint roofline angles, wonderful views of the gardens), or two standard rooms for the more frugal guest. Welcomes, directions, suggestions and overall 'take care of your every need' hospitality are provided by propprietors Pat and Colin. Take away and pub grub and a few restaurants within walking distance or a much grander array close by, especially up the Strand Road in Malahide. Great location to base from while exploring historic Dublin city (Book of Kells, Kilmainam Gaol, Phoenix Park, Trinity College, etc.) and environs (the Boyne Valley north, Glendalough and Powerscourt south, or Kildare, Trim, etc. west). We would highly recommend a stay at South Lodge.
