We arrived late (after 23:00) so they left us a key which was easy to find.
Room was a bit crowded, but clean and cosy. Breakfast was very good, including both a Continental buffet and cooked breakfast of your choice.
The location and surrounding area is very nice, just just 30 minutes drive from the airport and Dublin centre

The Moat Lodge is a really nice little B&B, slghtly away from Dublin but great for exploring the area.
The room was clean, comfortable, modern and well furnished. The breakfasts are awesome! The couple who own the B&B are incredibly nice - really pleasant people who went way beyond 'good customer service' to make sure my stay was as good as can be!

I stayed for 2nights here, due to its location to a wedding reception I was attending. A good breakfast provided and a very clean place.

This was a very nice B&B although we were under the impression that we would be more in the country...it was situated in a small town of Lucan...a 10 minute walk to the city bus and a half hour ride into Dublin. It was neat riding the bus with the 'locals' though. Astrid was very nice and we had very good breakfasts. The room was sort of small as was the bathroom, but that's typical of most B&B's. Internet didn't work in the room, so we had to go to their dining room for Internet access.

Moat Lodge is a good value place to stay in Dublin. Owners are friendly, helpful and the breakfast makes a good start to the day - very generous.

I spent a week in Ireland and stayed in a different hotel or B&B each night and in comparison, this place was the worst. Our greeting was lukewarm at best and on the way to our room, we were subjucted to no less than four huge no-smoking signs. The owner left us at the door with a warning not to arrive late for breakfast the next morning. The room was tiny and very ugly and cheap. The owners had made absolutely no effort to make the room attractive or comfortable, the only decoration being the two large no-smoking signs. In the "welcome" pack there was a further poster stating that guests who smoke in the rooms will be fined something like €200.

My partner is a smoker (who always goes outside), and when he politely enquired where in the garden he may smoke, the very curt answer was "We do not encourage smoking, even outdoors." On our way out to dinner, we left through the front door, pasted with further instructions such as "do not slam door" and of course, no-smoking. Even though the ban doesn't affect me personally, I find it very rude and unwelcoming to hang so many signs. It makes you feel like a naughty school child rather than a welcome and may I add, paying guest.

Breakfast was nothing special. The room and bathroom were clean. I have been to Ireland several times and every other place I stayed at was just so much nicer.
