Aberdeen Lodge4.0 out of 5.0

The house had great character. The staff was friendly and was very helpful. Reasonably close to the DART and the village of Sandymount. The breakfast was good and consistent. We stayed three nights. The beds were comfortable and the neighborhood was quiet. We would highly recommend for anyone wanting to stay away from City center.
We stayed the first two nights after our arrival in Ireland at the Aberdeen Lodge. It's not in the center city area, but rather in a quieter residential area south of center city. It's a little difficult to find if you're driving, but it is very much worth the trouble. The property is very quaint, the staff very attentive and helpful, and the lodge is simply charming. This property is within easy walking distance where you can take a hop-on, hop-off bus to tour the center city. We will absolutely book a stay at the Aberdeen Lodge if and when we return to Ireland.
Just returned from a vacation in Ireland and was so lucky to have found and booked 7 nights at the Aberdeen Lodge. Absolutely charming, and a beautiful area just outside central Dublin but so close to all transportation and also close the beach which was ideal for afternoon walks. The wonderful couple who owns and runs it are involved in every detail and it is run to perfection, from being warmly greeted and offered tea in the charming drawing room, to the scrumptious daily breakfast where you can linger and savor each delicious offering and your own carafe of coffee. The staff is amazing, super accommodating and friendly. Our room was not large but so cozy and perfect, the bathroom was a good size. A fond memory is turning in early on some nights after an exhausting sightseeing day and getting an amazing tea tray complete with cookies to enjoy in our cozy bed. The kitchen was also accommodating and on a couple of occasions prepared sandwiches packed 'grandma' style complete with an apple for us when we had early wake up for a day trip. So relaxing and charming, and it made our busy vacation very special!
I just returned from a 10-day trip in Ireland where I stayed in 7 different hotels & b&b's we mixed it up, but Aberdeen is by far my favorite, we stayed here for our first two nights in Dublin, and I could've stayed here the entire time!!! It was a gorgeous historic old Georgian style home, and family-run, so right when you arrive you get a personal experience. Pat who runs the house along with his wife, greeted us with coffee and delicious peanut butter cookies, for us settled in and helped us arrange our tours and told us how to get around the city outlining the map. Many b&b's don't have updated amenities but the bed was cozy, room very clean, the bathroom was amazing, you can't beat a good shower! Plus we had a view of the backyard and it was just very home. I felt like I was more in the country side and just one block away was the amazing ocean. It was a gorgeous neighborhood and 10 mins from downtown Dublin which you can taxi or Uber to, so half the price and a nicer location than most downtown places very quiet at night for a goodnight sleep. Pat also helped us arrange a Wild Wicklow Tour which I HIGHLY Recommend it was the prettiest views ever, taking you to the purple field and mountains where PS I love you was filmed, the Sally Gap and Glendalough. If I go back I will definitely be staying here again!!!! Love it 💗
Pitch perfect management, delightful staff, and ideal location make the Lodge a gem to be recommended highly. In recently for a business weekend from New England, USA, and the Lodge offers everything. Suburban peace, coastal walks, or (as it was during my stay) 10-minutes on the DART to be in the center of All-Ireland Finals insanity, an IFI film festival or whatever else you're into. Perfect serenity base from which to explore Dublin and beyond. Top drawer.
This is the most beautiful place I have stayed in quite some time! My partner and I were originally staying in a hostel in Dublin but found it to be quite a mess so the lovely owner offered us some rooms and I'm very happy he did. They were beautiful! Everything is clean, shiny and the staff were amazing!!! Highly recommended!!!
We loved staying at the Aberdeen Lodge at the end of our trip to Ireland. We had stayed near Dublin's city center when we first got to Ireland, but by the end of our trip we were ready for a quiet location near the beach and a quick train ride into the city. We were greeted with an elegant tea service complete with homemade cookies in the sitting room upon our arrival. The breakfast buffet was sumptious. Our host made dinner recommendations and reservations for us and directed us to a fabulous tour of Newgrange, which they also reserved for us. Aberdeen Lodge is a fabulous place to stay in Dublin!
My husband and I recently stayed here for three nights and we felt so welcomed by all the staff and was made to feel right at home as soon as we arrived. They accommodated our every need and couldn't ask for better service. We arrived a lot earlier than the check in time and the staff members made sure a room was ready for us and even took the time to go through all the local amenities and tourist attractions with us, which made us feel at ease as we have never been to Dublin before. All the staff were so friendly, the room was wonderful and the food was fantastic! Being possibly the best breakfast both me and my husband have ever had. We would definitely return in the future! 5 out of 5 from us! Fantastic!
Aberdeen lodge is in a quiet residential area of Dublin away from the hustle & bustle of the city which is only a ten minute train ride away.The breakfasts are a treat from a full Irish to a wide variety of healthy options, the soda bread is delicious. Elegant dining room. Restful bedroom. A welcoming check in with a cup of tea, Pat is very knowledgeable about Dublin with lots of helpful tips on getting around the area. Would highly recommend.
We found Aberdeen Lodge the perfect place to retreat after forays into Dublin and surrounding areas. Pat and Anne run a lovely place in a convenient location, with helpful information about the area, attentive and gracious staff, comfortable accommdation, and delicious breakfasts in a dining room with linen covered tables. The staff were uniformly pleasant, attentive and professional. Aberdeen Lodge is a great alternative to hotels, which might be more elegant, but can be sterile and predictable.
