“Good Location, Price, Service, and Breakfast”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

I stayed at Oaklodge B&B for a week and I was pleased to find that it lived up to the reviews I had found on this site. The location is peaceful and quiet and allows easy access to Dublin on foot or via bus/train/taxi. I stayed in a single room and while I felt it was a bit small it certainly lived up to my expectations for privacy, quiet, comfort, and convenience especially considering the price. Teresa is an excellent hostess and her attitude, patience, and professionalism added to my pleasant stay at Oaklodge. The diverse selection and generous portions of breakfast were also fantastic. The only downside I experienced was that my room (on the top floor) did not have very good WiFi coverage though this was easily solved by simply going to the main floor common area. I have recommended this B&B to family that are visiting Dublin and when I return to Dublin in the future I will certainly look to the Oaklodge B&B for a place to stay.

Room Tip: I recommend paying for an ensuite if you plan to stay more than a night - it can be a bit tedious wo...

Stayed at Oakmount for 2 nights early October. Located just outside the city centre, this is a beautiful and very upscale part of Dublin. A quiet residential street, very easy access to transport, the Airport Aircoach/Dublin bus stop a 5 minute walk with the DART about 15 minutes just past Herbert Park. Room was quite spacious, extremely clean, very comfortable and quiet, breakfast was wonderful. Teresa is a most welcoming host, you will feel as if you are a guest in her home. Very strongly recommend this B and B. Very much enjoyed my stay and will most certainly be back.... Thanks for wonderful hospitality!

We spent 3 nights here, while visiting friends. It is a beautiful family home converted to a B&B and operated by lovely people. We requested a double with an ensuite bathroom, which was located on the (American) 2nd floor/ (European) 1st floor. (I did not see any guest rooms on the main floor so if you have limitations regarding stairs, then this might not be the best fit for you.) Our room actually had one double bed and a separate single bed and was very nicely decorated and comfortable. The room had a wardrobe, television, hair dryer, electric kettle for tea service, and desk area with chair. The ensuite bathroom was a 3/4 bath with shower only, toilet and sink and whilst not very large was more than adequate for our needs. There is a 110/220 outlet in the over-the-sink light fixture but it is for things like shavers and NOT heat producing appliances such as hair dryers.

Breakfast was excellent; you must try the kippers and the soda bread! Teresa and her family go all out and are very accommodating. We did not make much use of it, but the front living room is very comfortable and inviting.

The B&B is a very short walk to the Dublin bus stop, a bit longer into St. Stephen's Green area and is very conveniently located. We took a flat rate taxi (viptaxis.ie) from the airport though the Aircoach (aircoach.ie -Leopardstown Route) will drop you off at the Morehampton Road stop, which is then a short walk to the Oaklodge.

WiFi is available in the public areas of the inn though we could access it from our room as well. As to electronics, as with most older European homes there are not as many or as conveniently located electric outlets so we purchased a 3 outlet cube adapter at Home Depot (Leviton 15-Amp 2-Wire White Triple Adapter, there are others with 3 holes if you need that) plugged it into a UK/Irish adapter, which then went into the wall outlet; worked well for cameras, phones, tablet. That way you only need one of the bulky UK/Irish adapters. Be courteous and remember not to overload a circuit!

Thank you for your comments and I am delighted you enjoyed your stay in Oaklodge. For the benefit of potential guests I would just like to clarify the issue re electrical outlets in bathrooms. The health and safety requirements in Ireland do not allow the use of hairdryers in bathrooms.
In Oaklodge I provide a hairdryer in each room and there is a suitable socket within the bedroom within easy reach of a mirror for drying hair. Teresa

Our room at Oaklodge met all of the requirements of a good b&b - it was comfortable, clean, quiet, and reasonably spacious, especially for a big city accommodation. Teresa exceeded all of the requirements of a good b&b owner, as she was very friendly, very helpful and very well organized. And, with a full breakfast included, the price was certainly reasonable, especially in comparison with the cost of a Dublin hotel on a weekend night.

Not being very familiar with Dublin, we were initially concerned about the location, but that proved to be a positive. It is in a neighborhood that is both quiet and pretty, and we actually enjoyed the 15-20 minute walk to and from the center of the city, especially when returning after dinner. With Teresa's guidance, we took the bus when pressed for time, a task made easier by the fact that all of the buses at the nearby stop go to the city center. It is an "exact change" system, the fare being an awkward 1.90 euro, but the driver won't complain if you put in 2 euros; just don't expect any change.

All in all, we found this to be an excellent choice for a visit to Dublin.

We had a great experience at Oaklodge all around. We ended a 9 day tour of southern Ireland there and agreed that it was the nicest place we stayed. Teresa's attention to detail made it feel like a very comfortable home. Our room was impeccably clean and even the sheets were pressed. Breakfast each morning was a beautiful and delicious feast. We also loved the neighborhood... close enough to great restaurants and Marion row, but quiet enough to be relaxed from the hustle and bustle of Temple Bar. We hope to return again to Dublin soon and will definitely look forward to our next stay at Oaklodge.

Teresa is a very pleasant hostess, always smiling. It is his house with great taste and is very thorough. We stayed a week with our baby in the house, the home that we reserved it is worthy of the Irish heat we hear about. The room was very clean and the bathroom very comfortable. The district of residence is one of the most beautiful Dublin. Not to mention the delicious breakfast box.
If you need to make a living in the Irish capital, I highly recommend Oaklodge Bed and Breakfast.

We spent 2 nights at the Oaklodge. Teresa was very helpfull for all transportation details including a badge to stay in the street if needed. The house is nice in a lovely Georgian neighbourhood, quiet and easy to reach by bus, even at night. The first day we went to Dublin Center by foot (25 minutes) and it was a pleasant walk with typical houses all long, easy to find with the plan provided by Teresa.
Rooms are quiet and comfortable, breakfast is great with a choice of fish or cheeses, rarely offered and appreciated at the end of the stay.

We recommand it.



Rooms were comfortable, nicely, but simply decorated and most important....spotless. Breakfast was delicious, everything made to order. Teresa is a love
