A group of us travelled from Devon to Dublin under the pretext of a cricket tour. Well, a little cricket was played and a great deal of hospitality was sampled, with Pat & his family team at the Aberdeen Lodge acting as genial hosts and high quality concierges. The hotel is elegant, calm and restful with discreet service. Rooms are clean and comfortable, the showers in the bathroom are a true torrent of water which was much appreciated after some light exercise. Breakfast however has to be the highlight, freshly prepared combinations of modern and traditonal ingredients to create a highly indulgent event. One of our party (me) stupidly left my wallet behind - 3 days later it was returned via courier safe and sound. True extra mile service. Recommend.

Wonderful stay , a very nice call before to know when we like to book in and when we arrived we were taken to the drawing room for tea. Served with a nice chat and very helpful information. The room had a four poster bed and lovely view of the garden . Everything you need was on had and spotless clean. We were out for the evening and came back late to a lovely tea in our comfortable room. Had a lovely night sleep, quite and comfortable bed. The breakfast was delicious served in a bright dining room with lovely view of the garden. The staff were helpful and very pleasant and friendly.

We slept each night of the week in another B&B. This one was our favorite. There is so much love in each detail, the owners and the staff are super nice and the beds are more than super comfortable. And the breakfast is delicious and looks stunning. Thank you.

I don't know where to start, but I stayed here for 5 nights in April 2022 as my husband vv ill in the nearby St Vincent's Hospital. From the minute I spoke to Pat on the phone himself & Anne looked after me like one of there own. Their home is just beautiful so homely & warm, Anne is a fabulous cook & all her food was top class. Nothing was a bother & I will highly recommend to anyone going to Dublin & we hope to come back soon ourselves for a wee break 😍

The Aberdeen Lodge is an absolute gem and Pat and Ann are the most wonderful of hosts. The quiet and very beautiful neighborhood is within a very short walk to the DART train for a 10 minute ride into the heart of Dublin and an easy stroll to a beautiful beach on Dublin Bay. If you are tired after a long day, there is no need to travel into Dublin for dinner as the little town center is also just a short walk from the Lodge and there are plenty of nice restaurants to choose from. Our room was just beautiful and Ann's breakfasts were terrific and make sure that you try her homemade brown Irish soda bread. The backyard is a wonderful place to relax after spending the day touring all the sites of Dublin and for people who miss their dogs that were left at home, there are two beautiful and very friendly dogs to provide that oxytocin boost that you may be missing. I doubt that you could find a more welcoming place to stay and we will certainly look forward to a return visit.

I booked the place at random because it had prices lower than the ones in the centre and most of all because it seemed to promise a more homey atmoshpere. The place delivered everything it portrayed on their website and other sites. A huge bonus for me: it is a place where the owners live as well with their children,the cat and two fabulous retrievers. My room was on the top floor and as there is no lift since the place is an old villa,I nicely worked off all the food I had on a particular day. They only offer breakfast but the choice is very good. Dining room and the sitting room feel like a bit of Downton Abbey on a smaller scale. The owners were helpful with adapters and umbrellas, ready to chat and provide reliable info about everything a first time traveller would wan to know. There is a lovely terrace and the back garden to relax. The room was lovely and cosy, the only thing to work out is how to use the sink because there are two fossets and washing your face requires both of them to mix the temerature of the water in the sink but that is the charm of the isles. The person who expects everything to be as at home should stay at home. The village is called Sandymount and has a few nice pubs to get good food. Local transport from the place to the city is easy and frequent and the area very safe. I walked well past midnight from the centre of the village on my last night ( because the taxi driver could not find the lodge) to my hotel and felt as safe as if I were in my hometown. If you do not mind commuting to the centre everyday this is a lovely place to stay, heartily recommended. I will definity come back.

In an excellent area just a 10 minute walk from both the beach and the Dart station, a 10 minute trip into Dublin. Lovely clean room but could with with a little modernisation, quite cold. Good choice for breakfast but lacking a cereal option. Great dogs, very friendly.

We’ve just returned from an excellent short stay. We were made very welcome by Pat, his wife and staff. The room was spacious and comfortable and the breakfasts delicious, especially the home made brown bread. Access to Dublin was easy via nearby bus and train stations and Sandymount is a lovely nearby town. I’d highly recommend staying here and hope to visit again.

I stayed in this lovely little hotel with its very kind and welcoming hosts for three nights. It's very authentic and situated nearby a beautiful beach area, that creates a nice contrast to the busy city life you'd get right in Dublin, which is also very easily reached by either bus or train. My personal favourite touch were probably the two dogs and the cat, who were some great company after my arrival and a whole day of travelling.

We stayed here as part of a Virgin experience package. On arrival we were treated like royalty - being asked to sit in the lounge and presented with tea, coffee and delicious peanut butter cookies. After a brief discussion with Pat, he gave us our train passes and open top bus tour passes (part of the Virgin package). Our room was on the first floor. Spotlessly clean and overlooked the back garden. Although quite old- fashioned (compared to many modern hotels) it was a lovely, comfortable place to stay. Without a doubt, the best thing about our stay was the delicious Irish breakfast! Something we looked forward to every morning. The position of the hotel is a 10 minute walk to the local train station which was great too.
