The bnb is located next to Heuston Station, which can be conveniently accessed from the airport with the 747 airlink bus. The rooms were a little dated, but comfortable and large. However, being on the ground floor we sometimes heard footsteps on the floor above us, and the radiator sometimes made funny noises. Breakfast was tasty and plenty, that is... More

Very nice b&b even if it is a little dated. Good breakfast. as a very friendly feel to it, Grianne gives lots of info on Dublin and was always nice to chat to in the mornings over breakfast. nice spacious room and not too far from Dublin centre and 5 mins from heuston station.

Stayed at this wounderful B&B with 3 other friends. This was our first trip to Dublin, and we were so happy we decided to stay here. Firstly not only is the host/owner warm, welcoming and immensely helpful; she was so kind and bought us lactose free milk to make our stay even more pleasant (no pun intended) The B&B is... More

The staff at Gate Lodge was fantastic, and breakfast was great--plenty of cold, quick options (including cereal, yogurts, fruits, etc.) and a full Irish breakfast--were included in the price of the room. The french press coffee was a nice touch. The room felt a bit antiquated, and it isn't the most beautiful b&b we've stayed in. However, the place is... More

Stayed for a couple of nights last weekend. Grainne is a lovely host. Friendly and obliging. Her breakfasts are lovely. We found our room to be light and airy although a little dated. Our room was at the back of the guesthouse so we had no problem with traffic noise.

I was in Dublin for a big conference and chose this place for reviews and the position close to the airport bus stop and local transport. Attractions such as Jameson distillery, Guinness storehouse, zoo are close. Temple Bar is a 10-minute bus ride. Getting into the city centre is easy using buses or trams. You'll also be among the first... More

we stayed for 3 nights, it was clean, quiet, with a spacious room and comfortable beds. Our hosts were incredibly helpful with information and travel assistance. Very close to Heuston station and all the bus lines. I would stay there again.

I would first like to say Grainne is a lovely hostess who serves a tasty breakfast and chats about what and what not to see in Dublin. However, the lodge is very rundown and the neighborhood, while handy to the centrum, is shabby, though safe. Our bathroom had mold in the shower, the toilet paper holder was hanging off the... More

We stayed here for a long weekend, and it was perfect for our requirements. The hotel is located very near to Heuston station (not near enough to hear it) and the associated bus and tram stops, making it the perfect base. It is a lovely 20 minute stroll along the river to the city centre too. The room was basic,... More
