From the moment we stepped inside Bearna Rue Lodge we felt welcomed. Elizabeth and Sean are lovely and we felt immediately as though we had known them forever. Their hospitality was warm and attentive. Our room was cosy and fresh. And being in Ireland for a busy week it was lovely to come back to in the evening and chill... More

We spent one night here recently on our way back to Dublin from Cork. It was a bit tricky to find, up a windy hill with very, very narrow driving space! Once there, however, there was plenty of area to park. Our hostess, Elizabeth, wasn't home when we arrived at about 4pm, but she returned while we were ringing the... More

We recently stayed here and it was our last stop while visiting Ireland. it was our least favorite of the B&B's we stayed in. It is seated 20/30 minutes outside of Dublin, but they still charge the extra €10 for a stay in "Dublin". Now, that being said, it is located in a remote area away from hustle and bustle... More

My mother, best friend, and I stayed at Bearna Rua Lodge for two nights while exploring nearby Dublin. Elizabeth and Sean were very hospitable and absolutely lovely hosts! We were there a couple days after the celebrations for the 1916 Easter Rising and enjoyed hearing about Elizabeth's grandfather who partook in the Easter Rising events 100 years earlier. The B&B...

We stayed here for 2 nights while enjoying Dublin during St. Patrick's day. Ms. Elizabeth and her husband Sean were gracious hosts, we couldn't have asked for better. Elizabeth was so helpful with directions and places to go. The tram is just a short commute away and will take you right into the heart of Dublin. The breakfast was perfect... More

My husband and I stayed at Bearna Rua Lodge the last two days of March. I had specifically chosen it because of it's location; the LUAS station is about 10 minutes away and we were able to take it into Dublin instead of driving. And relax outside of Dublin at night! Elizabeth was a wonderful hostess. She gave us advice... More

We stayed here while attending a wedding nearby. The place was overpriced, very poorly decorated and room was quite small. Breakfast was included in the rate, but the only options given were to have it at 8 or 9 am, ridiculous for a weekend stay. Avoid.
