I stayed in the Charleville Lodge in the middle of March during my 5 week vacation to Europe. We weren't expecting to stay in a hotel but something came up and we had to find lodging at the last minute. We were walking to the bus stop when we came across this hotel. It was evening and the outside was charming and atmospherically lit.
We didn't think we could afford it since it looked so nice, but we went inside anyway and were extremely happy to find out the price for both of us together was 40 Euro a night. You can also opt for breakfast for another 7-10 Euros, which is actually the only thing I would complain about. The first option isn't worth the price. If you want the breakfast spring for the all included Irish breakfast.
The staff was incredibly helpful and polite, the rooms were clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated. The showers had almost too much water pressure (a good thing!), and the whole place has been renovated to make you feel like you've stepped back into the late Victorian period.
There is a bus stop across the street and city center is only 5-10 minutes away, though we walked the 20 minute route instead. The botanical gardens is also a 15 minute walk. Several pubs, restaurants, and a grocery store are all within a few blocks. Very convenient, but a bit more private since it's not right in the city center.
Would not hesitate to stay here again and would definitely recommend it to anyone!
