I stayed at Lynden b&b once a week while studying on a part time course nearby. It was very convenient for me location wise, good price & breakfast was nice. I’d been staying there once a week for over 2 months when i had a horrible experience with the land lady. My breakfast was always at 7.30am, this one morning I’d slept in for college and only woke up when Maria knocked on my door at 8.30am. She gave out to me for missing breakfast, said that she gets up at that time just for me, I’d completely wasted her morning and that I was an inconsiderate person. I apologized and said I’d slept in and was actually going to be late for college, I really didn’t mean to miss breakfast, to this she walked away from me. At this point I should mention every single time I’d eaten breakfast there was a least one other person being served so this was an exaggeration. I also felt that if she felt comfortable to knock at my door then why not do it earlier, I wouldn’t expect this service but if she was so annoyed then why not? I paid her husband that morning and went to college. The following week I returned, when I went to pay I was told there would no longer be a room for me as someone else needed that room on the night I’d selected. I was then given a 5 minute lecture from Maria about how young people -I was 23 at the time- don’t understand the working world, how we don’t appreciate everything that’s done for us & the hard work older generations do. I found this extremely insulting, I was working a full time job waitressing while studying a part time post grad in Dublin which is 2 hours away from me! I understand hard work!! It was human error, one sleep in (which I apologized for) and I was treated that way. I was glad not to return and found another b&b with a very nice & understanding land lady.
I stayed recently for a backgammon tournament with 2 friends, good breakfast, clean comfortable warm rooms, good value, Friendly hosts. They also helped out a fellow player who had accommodation problems on Sunday at last minute to put him up.
We booked two nights October 2018 to avoid traffic and hotel rates in Dublin. The location was perfect - an easy walk to the DART train which had excellent service to Dublin. The Lynden is a gracious older home maintained well. Our room was entirely satisfactory. Our hostess Marie was a delight - almost like going home to mom. She was welcoming, informative, and cooked fine breakfasts. We would book there again if ever returning to the Dublin area.
Wanted to book a room with them, its the 3rd time I was planning on booking with them and this time complete unprofessional service. They said they had a room available for a certain date and in order to book it they needed my card details. I dont feel comfortable with giving my card details so asked if there was any other way i could reserve the room. Steve who i spoke to told me that a cash deposit was an alternative. it was only for the night so i decided to call back since bringing a cash deposit was a hassle for me since i live on the other side of the country. I said i would ring back to confirm which and when i tried to call back to speak to steve, my number has been blocked by them so the call cant go through. Very unprofessional service. They choose who they want to take in and if its only for the night, they say that they don't have any availability. One the other two occasions spent there, everything was fine, the room was left clean and tidy, so very unfair to just treat their customers like this. In my opinion they are not trustworthy.
We stayed with Maria at the Lynden B&B for our first two nights in Ireland, taking the convenient train into Dublin each day. She is warm and caring, and we had good conversations with her. Her breakfasts are outstanding! Our room was very comfortable. Maria kindly made up our beds for us when we arrived in the morning, fresh off the plane, so we could take a nap before going into the city. With more time we would have explored the town of Dun Laoghaire itself, which would be worthwhile.
In a quiet street, not so far from the bus and the Dart station. Easy connection to Dublin. Dun Laoghaire is a nice place, quiet, with good restaurants in and around this place. You can walk to the sea and along the sea. The B&B is ok and a good place to stay.
Lynden House, situated in a quiet neighborhood, is a lovely Victorian home within walking distance of the town center. Maria and Steve are wonderful hosts and made my cousin and I feel welcomed and taken care of. Maria had a solution for every question. My cousin feared she might have to ship the books she'd bought and asked if Maria knew where she could weigh the books. Maria had a scale! Problem solved. I'd not seen an assortment of cheeses offered for breakfast, but I most certainly enjoyed them. My only drawback was the key to the room. It was one of those "quaint" keys that always defies me. Fortunately, my cousin managed it quite well.
Met family friends in Dun Laogharie to start our Irish trip and stayed for the second time here. The hosts, Marie and Steve, were as welcoming as before. Room decent enough, parking fine, and easy access to shops and front. My friends had the porridge and I the cooked breakfast. But it wasn’t a patch on my previous visit. Far less on the table and my egg a little well done (wasn’t asked). Sausage so-so. Too bad.
Having to go to Dun Laoghaire at short notice, our local tourist office suggested three guest houses, we picked Lynden as being the most convienent. It proved to be an excellent choice. It is part of a Victorian/Edwardian terrace our bedroom was large with a comfortable bed and a good ensuite fitted into one corner. A comfortable sitting room downstairs with a good supply of books and a rack of tourist information leaflets. But the crowning glory was the breakfast. The table was loaded with goodies, wheaten bread, scones, a basket of cheeses, orange juice, marmalade for a start. We were offered a choice of cereals and porridge, followed by a full Irish fry, the best fry that we have had for a very long time, most tastefully laid out on the plate. Maria and Stevie were ideal hosts, Stevie was a mine of local information. We know where we will be staying the next time we are in the Dublin area!
Maria was fabulous hostess. We were able to arrive early, check in, and take a rest before heading in to Dublin for sightseeing. Breakfast was unbelievable! Parking adequate. Train station about 5 minute walk. value.
