We spent 4 nights at the Gate Lodge. This was our first visit to Ireland and we really loved it. The owner Grainne is very welcoming, gave us clear instructions how to get there the first night and chatted with us every morning while we were having breakfast. Breakfast was really good, lots of choice and plentyful. We had a... More

I stayed here with my son during July. I have never used a B&B before, and normally opt for hotels, but since we were doing a lot of travelling over two weeks, I was trying to save money, and when this B&B popped up in my search, I looked at the prices and the location, and went with it. It... More

Having never been to Dublin before (or Ireland, for that matter) we consider ourselves VERY lucky to have found the Gate Lodge. We landed in perhaps the most convenient location we could have found. Since we were traveling without a car, we wanted to make as much use of public transportation as we could and this location turned out to... More

We stayed in Dublin for five of our eight days on our Ireland wedding anniversary trip...dreamt of for years and finally achieved! and boy were we lucky to choose Gate Lodge, a family-run B & B, who are some of the most charming people we've met, for our stay in Dublin! Most of our interaction was with the innkeeper, daughter... More

We loved staying at the Gate Lodge Guesthouse. It is in a great location to the train station and good restaurants. The owner is fabulous. The best breakfast we have had in weeks. We appreciated the friendly welcome.

We really enjoyed this B&B. International guests with a very friendly staff. The rooms are no frills but clean as a whistle. Close to Guinness and Jameson. Walking distance to the bus and the tram. Highly recommend this B&B. Irish breakfast was grand.

I usually stay in central Dublin but needed to be close to Heuston Station for early train. Gate Lodge is a bit ancient but very clean and comfortable. Staff very polite and friendly. Breakfast very good and will top up if required. Heuston Station around the corner where you can also connect to Luas for the centre or 747 bus... More

I stayed for two nights to attend a conference. Close to public transport, amenities, Old Kilmainham and Phoenix Park. A nice walk along the river to Jamison Distillery and attractions in the city. Plenty of nearby cafes and restaurants. Inside, nice big rooms, everything clean and lovely and a great cooked breakfast in the morning. But the pleasantness of the... More
