On a recent visit to Dublin, we were so pleased that we chose to stay at Aberdeen Lodge. As we walked into the hotel, the first question we were asked was "Would you like a cup of tea or coffee?" In over 40 years of staying in hotels all over the world, this was a first! The owners and staff went out of their way to ensure a perfect stay. The Dunne & Crescenzi restaurant in nearby Sandymount, which was one of their suggestions, was also superb! Our room was well furnished, very comfotable and very quiet, despite being at the front of the building. The bus into the City centre, has its terminus about 100m from the front door and saves the hassle of drivng in and parking. All things considered,we would have no hesitation in recommending it as the best place to stay in Dublin.
