Had a great stay here last summer. Accommodations were lovely, and just what we needed for our group. My nephew ended up coming last minute, and he was able to take a room with a bunk bed just off one of the adult rooms we had booked, and there was no additional cost! We especially enjoyed one evening on the... More

I've stayed in many bed and breakfasts over the past 20 years, and none comes close to the hospitality my husband and I experienced here. As others have mentioned, James and Dympna are thoughtful, genial proprietors who genuinely care about their guests and their needs. Dympna and James insisted on picking us up and returning us to the airport, even... More

Aisling B&B is by far the best lodging experience I've ever had! Our hosts James and Dympna treated us like family and the location is perfect close to great restaurants and public transportation. Both are very knowledgeable about Boston and gave us lots of valuable information. James picked us up at the airport and on the return made two trips... More

This B and B is located in a beautiful house on a quiet street with easy access to public transportation, restaurants, bars, etc.. Dympna and James are wonderful hosts!

I would definitely recommend this B&B if only for the victorian-style building and beautiful breakfast room and delicious home cooked treats! Nice discussions with the owner who was very warm and welcoming. The room was cozy and well decorated, the only downside would be the street light which made it quite light in the room at night.

Beautiful house on a quiet street in a very nice neighborhood. James actually gave us rides to and from the airport! We stayed in the street level room where there's a separate entrance to the floor, and there's a small kitchen furnished with coffee and tea, etc. Very convenient. James and Dympna are the perfect hosts, very warm and welcoming.... More

We celebrated our 38th wedding anniversary with a four day visit to Boston and stayed at Aisling B&B. Dympna and James were out of town; however, we had the pleasure of meeting Damon and Finola during our stay. Damon was so helpful with restaurant and travel suggestions. He helped us navigate the buses and subways. We truly enjoyed his company... More

Loved our stay with James and Dympna. Nothing was too much trouble for them. We had to leave early on our second day to catch our flight so we were not expecting breakfast at such an early hour however Dympna was prepared with breakfast and James drove us out to the airport. Thank you.

Had a lovely stay at Aisling B & B this week. Don't think we have met two people as interesting on our trip as Dympna and James and their kindness and generosity to us was much appreciated. Dympna put together a beautiful breakfast and went out of her way on our last day getting up early to "send us off".... More

James and Dympna are wonderful hosts and a wealth of information and conversation. The location of their home is perfect for foodies. We especially loved having access to the city's bike share program. There are several rental spots not more than a block away.

Thank you for the review, and we too are happy to be in the epicurean center of Boston. I personally love using the Hubway (the bike sharing system) as it is typically the fastest way around Boston. The bank of bikes is just around the corner from the BNB. More

Staying in South End

Neighborhood Profile
South End
Stroll down the beautiful brownstone lined streets while capturing views of Boston’s tallest buildings from a distance. Some of Boston’s best restaurants are scattered around this neighborhood. There are many gems to be found, from jazz clubs to classy bars and restaurants. It is also home to art galleries, interesting boutiques, artsy stores and SOWA open market during the summer months. The South End is a true find in the city, with a more residential feeling than Back Bay.
