We've stayed at many B&Bs and this is one of the very best! I wholeheartedly agree with other reviewers that Roberta & Grainne are the best hosts ever! They are friendly, accommodating, and went out of their way to ensure we had a pleasant stay - Roberta even left us a cafeteria with fresh coffee so that we could make... More

This is the first review I've written on a B&B. I felt compelled to rate this one because of the excellent service we received. Grainne made us feel so welcome on our first day in Ireland. We had flown all night and were pretty exhausted by the time we arrived at 9:30 am. Grainne welcomed us with tea, coffee and... More

Roberta and Gráinne are the best hosts I've ever had; they're warm, helpful, chill, and go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and enjoying your stay. Gráinne also sent me a very detailed email couple days before my travels about how to get to the lodge, recommended sightseeing tours, and travel passes for transportation, it really... More

Gráinne was a great hostess and helped us with some suggestions for tours and shows. We could have stayed here in Dublin several more nights as there was more to see than we had time for. There were four of us staying in a family room (my wife, myself and twin 18 year olds). The breakfasts were great and filling... More

This B&B is perfect if you want to go to Dublin ! It has a very good location, just next to Heuston Station, the tramway and some bus stops. My room was very comfortable and clean. There's a great choice of tea in the room. There's everything that you need in the bathroom. The best of all is the kindness... More

My sister and I stayed at Gate Lodge for one night. We were very happy with our large, very clean and welcoming room where we each enjoyed a very restful sleep in an extremely comfortable double bed (best B&B bed I've slept in!). Although the guesthouse is on a main road, the room was very quiet. I am a very... More

This B&B is well located, within walking distance to both the train and hop-on/hop-off bus stop. The neighborhood is quiet and well-lit if you come in later in the evening. The hosts are kind and knowledgeable and bent over backwards to ensure we had a pleasant stay. The breakfast is of the traditional Irish breakfast, but there is plenty of... More
