“Like home, but better”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

This is one of the nicest B&B we've ever have visited. We've spend our first night in Ireland there and after this nice experience decided to come back for our last night again. The house is located around 12 mins drive from Dublin airport and easy to find. From the windows in the rooms on the backside you have a great view on the Portmarnock Golf Links golf course and it's about a 5 minutes walk to get to the beach (which is great too). It transports all charm of the old building combined with a lovely interior. Pat and Colin cared for so man details in the rooms and the house itself that you instantly feel home. Both are unbelievable nice hosts. Highly recommended!

We had a wonderful stay at this B&B last year so we returned this year! Pat and Colin are wonderful hosts and our very accomodating! Close to the airport which is great! Beautiful rooms and baths and wonderful food! Our boys couldn't wait to come back here! Last year, we had an early flight and they even offered to pack us a breakfast to go. How sweet! Beautiful view over the golf course. Close to Malahide with shopping, harbor and restaurants! Thanks!

Room Tip: Two rooms up top overlooking golf course

We had a wonderful stay here on our first night of a weekend in Dublin. Easy to find from the airport, we were welcomed and shown to our beautiful room. Pat and Colin were lovely and provided a delicious breakfast. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a cosy B&B, we would certainly stay there again. Thanks!

Our host and hostess were gracious and very accommodating. The allowed us an early check in so that we could rest after our flight from the US. When we returned at the conclusion of our holiday, they provided an early morning continental breakfast so we could have food before going to the airport, even though are departure time was two hours before they served breakfast. This B & B is located close to nice gold courses, beaches and Dublin.

We have had the pleasure of staying at South Lodge many times over the past number of years, discovering it on our honeymoon and bringing clients there ever since. The property itself is the former gatehouse of the Jameson (of whiskey distilling fame) family estate and is now a comfy B&B along the Strand Road in Portmarnock. The location i within easy walking distance of Portmarnock beach and abuts the Portmarnock Golf Club (grand views from upstairs over the course, especially in the mornings). It is within 15 minutes of Dublin Airport, is on the bus line to the city center and has convenient off-road private parking. There are three rooms ensuite which ooze ambiance (overhead beams, quaint roofline angles, wonderful views of the gardens), or two standard rooms for the more frugal guest. Welcomes, directions, suggestions and overall 'take care of your every need' hospitality are provided by propprietors Pat and Colin. Take away and pub grub and a few restaurants within walking distance or a much grander array close by, especially up the Strand Road in Malahide. Great location to base from while exploring historic Dublin city (Book of Kells, Kilmainam Gaol, Phoenix Park, Trinity College, etc.) and environs (the Boyne Valley north, Glendalough and Powerscourt south, or Kildare, Trim, etc. west). We would highly recommend a stay at South Lodge.
