We stayed here in Boston for 4 days at the end of a very enjoyable 2 week trip to New England. This highly recommended B&B did not disappoint. We got a great welcome on arrival from Dympna. We stayed in the Salthill room on the first floor. It was a large room with a most comfortable double bed and a... More

We spent 3 nights at Aisling B&B, This was our first time to Boston and were very grateful that James offered to pick us up from the airport, especially when we saw the heavy traffic going into Boston, a nightmare for those that are new to the area. Our room Murmod Sanctuary was spacious. We had the use of a... More

We stayed at the Aisling for one night over Harbor Fest and could not have been more pleased with that choice. Dympna and her husband we're openly gracious and generous hosts, offering detailed information on getting around Boston. The breakfast that Dympna prepared was above and beyond what we expected that morning. The room was charming, comfortable and located within... More

What stood out to us during our four day stay was the neighbourhood feel of the area and the excellent hospitality of the hosts. We loved Dympna's cooked breakfasts with something different each morning. Conversations at breakfast time were enjoyable and the hosts, James and Dympna were helpful in regards to things to do and the best way to get... More

My daughter and I spent two nights at Aisling while she visited Tufts University. Jim and Dympna were gracious and welcoming. Our room was beautiful and the free off-street parking was so wonderful. Our room was near the small kitchen and it was great to make myself a cup of coffee and work from my comfortable bed. The cooked breakfast... More

I would NOT recommend this B & B. The owner agreed to take us to a restaurant near the airport upon our return home. We entered the car & he was clearly not pleased about taking us. I told him he can take us directly to the airport if he feels more comfortable. He then lashed out on me and... More

Dympna and James Moore are the proprietors of this wonderful Bed and Breakfast located in Boston's South End. The neighborhood is lovely and is overflowing with great ethnic restaurants. Our room was extremely comfortable, the breakfasts were scrumptious, and the conversations at the breakfast table, overseen by Dympna and James, were lively and fun. They also gave us excellent sightseeing... 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.
