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

My 16yr old granddaughter and I stayed at Gate Lodge in August, and we had a wonderful time. Quiet and comfortable. Before leaving the US I had many questions for Graine, and she was most helpful and prompt. And while we were there she had lots of 'tribal knowledge' on things to do, how to get there, and lots of... More

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
