My new fiancee and I stayed for two nights, and I've never felt so comfortable on vacation. We had surprisingly good weather, and the hosts were absolutely fantastic. We've been back home for a week and are still raving about the breakfast, plus the hosts were genuinely interested in who we were and where we were from. We spent a... More

My two nights at the Aisling Bed and Breakfast were comfortable, quiet, lovely, wonderfully situated in the fascinating South End of Boston. Many good restaurants, pharmacy, bakery, etc. within a few blocks. But the best -- the splendid delicious imaginative breakfasts, so graciously served served by Dympna and James - kindest hosts one could find in all the world. Stay... More

We spent a delightful weekend here at the Aisling Bed and Breakfast in April 2014 during our first visit to Boston. If you read any of the reviews available you will soon learn that the location is perfect. Just a few steps from the front door, the Grey Line bus will take you to all of the central Boston historical... More

My girlfriend and I spent Valentine's Day weekend here! What a joy it was (and I scored big points for booking it!). Every little aspect was outstanding. This historic 1870 home is in great condition and is extremely well taken care of. The furnishing are very impressive, as well (great antique furniture and impressive paintings/art on the walls tastefully all... More

Dympna and James are the loveliest people you'd ever want to meet: kind, thoughtful, interesting, helpful, humorous, and much more. We had our small wedding ceremony in their sitting room and it was just perfect; the hosts were so accommodating when it came to our guests, flowers, and all of the little details that we had to consider. We are... More

I spent two nights at Aisling B&B and absolutely loved it. The room was cozy, comfortable, cheerful and clean (this is very important to me), as was the bathroom. I was happy to get back to it every night. James and Dympna are kind and friendly but not invasive. We saw them only at breakfast, which was a lavish affair... More

My wife and I travelled to Boston last October on business. After the conference we moved to Aisling B & B. What a treat! The location in South Boston was great; a selection of good restaurants nearby and we could walk downtown in about 20 minutes. The room was very comfortable and the breakfast delicious. But what made this a... More

We stayed here for a few nights in November, having travelled up from NYC, and it was exactly what we wanted. We have been converted to the B&B experience, to avoid faceless and expensive chain hotels, and this is as good as they get. The place is furnished to a very high standard, and the hosts are always friendly and... More

From the time I made my booking until I was dropped of at the airport for my flight home, Dympna and James did everything to make my short stay in Boston a very enjoyable experience. Dympna was very prompt and efficient in answering questions I had prior to my arrival and as pre-arranged, James was waiting at the airport to... More

did I mention the delicious cranberry and Nut bread, and the apple crepes, all calorie free of course! All the days we were there we were the only ones at breakfast so we had the pleasure of James and Dympna's conversation about all manner of topics and life in Boston itself. They have been in Boston 30 years from Ireland,... More
