Pat really made our trip to Dublin by providing invaluable local knowledge on restaurants in Sandymount as well as encouraging us to make the most of our Leap cards by doing some coastal walks outside of the city. The lodge has an excellent location out of the hustle and bustle of the city but is close to the DART stations and bus stops for easy travel into the city centre and surrounds. All the staff were extremely friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed breakfast, including the Irish soda bread (which goes very well with the raspberry jam!). Price of the room and breakfast was very good for the quality received. We were also very pleased to get a friendly welcome from Sandy and Robin (the golden retrievers) when we arrived.
I place a lot of weight on traveler reviews when booking lodging. Aberdeen Lodge has outstanding reviews so my wife and I were expecting a great stay. Well, Pat and Anne exceeded even our high expectations. The Lodge is beautifully appointed, clean, and inviting. The staff are exceptional and attentive to every request. For example, I asked if they had sugar-free maple syrup for my pancakes. They didn’t, but Anne went to the store that day and bought some for me. The breakfasts are delicious, served in the dining room overlooking the garden. Pat is extremely helpful with directions and suggestions. We spent a week there exploring Dublin up close and the Lodge is conveniently located a short walk and a 10 minute DART train ride to the center of Dublin. TIP…walk to Sandymount Village, about 15 minutes, and eat at Mulligan’s Pub. We highly recommend Aberdeen Lodge and would definitely return.…
Aberdeen Lodge was a great value for pricey Dublin. You won’t need a car because you’re near bus lines and the DART with just a short walk. The neighborhood was lovely and the owner was kind and helpful. If you can’t book this via 3rd party websites because of lack of availability, call the Lodge directly. We got lucky and were able to score extra nights. They serve a wonderful breakfast for a reasonable price. This was a wonderful place to de-stress.
A group of us travelled from Devon to Dublin under the pretext of a cricket tour. Well, a little cricket was played and a great deal of hospitality was sampled, with Pat & his family team at the Aberdeen Lodge acting as genial hosts and high quality concierges. The hotel is elegant, calm and restful with discreet service. Rooms are clean and comfortable, the showers in the bathroom are a true torrent of water which was much appreciated after some light exercise. Breakfast however has to be the highlight, freshly prepared combinations of modern and traditonal ingredients to create a highly indulgent event. One of our party (me) stupidly left my wallet behind - 3 days later it was returned via courier safe and sound. True extra mile service. Recommend.
Wonderful stay , a very nice call before to know when we like to book in and when we arrived we were taken to the drawing room for tea. Served with a nice chat and very helpful information. The room had a four poster bed and lovely view of the garden . Everything you need was on had and spotless clean. We were out for the evening and came back late to a lovely tea in our comfortable room. Had a lovely night sleep, quite and comfortable bed. The breakfast was delicious served in a bright dining room with lovely view of the garden. The staff were helpful and very pleasant and friendly.
We slept each night of the week in another B&B. This one was our favorite. There is so much love in each detail, the owners and the staff are super nice and the beds are more than super comfortable. And the breakfast is delicious and looks stunning. Thank you.
I don't know where to start, but I stayed here for 5 nights in April 2022 as my husband vv ill in the nearby St Vincent's Hospital. From the minute I spoke to Pat on the phone himself & Anne looked after me like one of there own. Their home is just beautiful so homely & warm, Anne is a fabulous cook & all her food was top class. Nothing was a bother & I will highly recommend to anyone going to Dublin & we hope to come back soon ourselves for a wee break 😍
The Aberdeen Lodge is an absolute gem and Pat and Ann are the most wonderful of hosts. The quiet and very beautiful neighborhood is within a very short walk to the DART train for a 10 minute ride into the heart of Dublin and an easy stroll to a beautiful beach on Dublin Bay. If you are tired after a long day, there is no need to travel into Dublin for dinner as the little town center is also just a short walk from the Lodge and there are plenty of nice restaurants to choose from. Our room was just beautiful and Ann's breakfasts were terrific and make sure that you try her homemade brown Irish soda bread. The backyard is a wonderful place to relax after spending the day touring all the sites of Dublin and for people who miss their dogs that were left at home, there are two beautiful and very friendly dogs to provide that oxytocin boost that you may be missing. I doubt that you could find a more welcoming place to stay and we will certainly look forward to a return visit.…
I booked the place at random because it had prices lower than the ones in the centre and most of all because it seemed to promise a more homey atmoshpere. The place delivered everything it portrayed on their website and other sites. A huge bonus for me: it is a place where the owners live as well with their children,the cat and two fabulous retrievers. My room was on the top floor and as there is no lift since the place is an old villa,I nicely worked off all the food I had on a particular day. They only offer breakfast but the choice is very good. Dining room and the sitting room feel like a bit of Downton Abbey on a smaller scale. The owners were helpful with adapters and umbrellas, ready to chat and provide reliable info about everything a first time traveller would wan to know. There is a lovely terrace and the back garden to relax. The room was lovely and cosy, the only thing to work out is how to use the sink because there are two fossets and washing your face requires both of them to mix the temerature of the water in the sink but that is the charm of the isles. The person who expects everything to be as at home should stay at home. The village is called Sandymount and has a few nice pubs to get good food. Local transport from the place to the city is easy and frequent and the area very safe. I walked well past midnight from the centre of the village on my last night ( because the taxi driver could not find the lodge) to my hotel and felt as safe as if I were in my hometown. If you do not mind commuting to the centre everyday this is a lovely place to stay, heartily recommended. I will definity come back.…
In an excellent area just a 10 minute walk from both the beach and the Dart station, a 10 minute trip into Dublin. Lovely clean room but could with with a little modernisation, quite cold. Good choice for breakfast but lacking a cereal option. Great dogs, very friendly.
