“Great Hospitality”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

My wife and I stayed at the Aisling for two nights while in town for a beer festival. The room was perfect. Dympna is a great hostess. When first made the reservation, she noticed that we live close, so she contacted me to see if we needed a parking space. We did. She helped us make room under the stairs for our bicycles, which we had brought with us. Breakfast was a treat. The food was all homemade goodies, with enough variety that even a picky eater such as myself could find plenty to eat. Having the host and hostess join us during the family style breakfast is a nice touch. They spurred the conversation on with all the guests.

My husband and I spent a very nice long weekend in Boston, and chose Aisling B&B for its location and great reviews. We had an outstanding time in the city, and our hosts were absolutely superb! James very kindly picked us up from the airport on Saturday morning, and Dympna welcomed us like family. Excellent food, rooms and hospitality! Highly recommended!

My wife and I recently had the pleasure of stayiing at Aisling Bed and Breakfast in Boston. The room was very comfortable. The breakfasts were prepared with great skill, creativity and obvious enjoyment- they were outstanding. But what really enriched our Boston experience was the time we spent with our generous hosts, Dympna and James. What wonderful people! We would recommend Aisling to anyone planning a trip to Boston!

Recently stayed for 2 nights at the Aisling B&B. Was on a driving holiday around the east coast and choose this B&B because of its good location and free parking, little did we know we were also going to get fantastic food and great hospitality. Dympna is a great host and is very helpful in suggestions of where to go and what to do. Her house is a beautiful 4-story building located a short 15-minute walk to the Prudential Centre. I had never stayed at a B&B in the states before and after staying with Dympna I would defiantly recommend it. You can come and go as you want, so why stay in a downtown hotel when you can stay here, get a scrumptious breakfast that will set you up for the day and free parking in a great location. What more could you ask for. Thanks Dympna. If we are back to Boston we will be staying at the Aisling B&B.

We really enjoyed our stay at this great B & B. Dympna's cooking was was really fantastic. Both Dympna and James gave us great advice on transportation and places to eat. Many thanks to James for collecting us and dropping us back to the airport.

We would definitely recommend this B & B.

I found the Aisling from the excellent reviews on TripAdvisor. This bed and breakfast was as good as the reviewers said it was. Dympna and James were great hosts and we appreciated how welcome they made us feel. They gave us some great suggestions for restaurants and attractions. Dympna really spoiled us with homemade breakfasts that were outstanding. The B&B had parking behind it for our vehicle and we walked or used nearby public transportation for the three days we were there. I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting the Boston area.

We enjoyed our two-night staying at Aisling B&B, Dympna welcomed us at the parking lot behind the house, right after we parked our car, she told us in detail of the local attractions that we both felt that we probably should have stayed longer to enjoy all the fun things in Boston. Both Dympna and James were very helpful and we certainly enjoyed our breakfast conversation as well as breakfasts. Their location was also very convenient to go to different attractions, although we drove, but we took public transportation all the time.
