What a lovely hotel with a friendly and helpful staff. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Would recommend this to all my friends. The breakfast was excellent. The hotel is well placed for access into Dublin with the Dart railway a short walk away and the number 1 bus starts from just outside. Nice outside area when the weather... More

All the good things people have said about the lodge we found to be true. Accomodating and attentive staff, very comfortable bed in room 27, nice area, quiet, good breakfast, etc. It is close to public transportation-10 minute walk to DART Line, 10 minute ride to Pearse Station and a 10 minute walk from Pearse to Temple Bar area, very...

Very quite nice location in a residential neighborhood. Clean room and very helpful staff. The breakfast was fantastic and you can walk to the beach. Not much around there, you need a car to get around.

located in ballsbridge you have to either take taxis (approx. 14 euros) or ride the dart (there were four of us so taxis it was). Nice and quiet and just a few blocks from the coast, we were greeted with hot tea and cookies and an introduction to the family and cat, Paws! Shown to our rooms which were roomy,... More

Our group spent a couple nights at the Aberdeen Lodge in June 2014. Our rooms were all en-suite, roomy and comfortable. The staff went out of their way to take care of us and make sure our visit was trouble free. The breakfasts were delicious. It is located on a treed street of large homes just outside the main city.... More

I was concerned about the location of this hotel, being a bit outside of Dublin, but my fears were soon allayed. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Very friendly welcome and accommodating staff. excellent breakfast. It was an easy 5 min walk to the nearby Dart station and from there frequent short and low cost trips into Dublin centre.... More

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... More

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... More
