When visiting Aberdeen Lodge years ago, the owner had been especially kind to us. We were leaving town, and misjudged the distance to the bus stop to get a ride to the airport. Pat Halpin, the owner, informed us that we would miss the bus, so he drove us to the bus stop. We highly recommend Aberdeen Lodge.

The guesthouse is actually two Edwardian (I think) houses beautifully joined together and renovated. I was welcomed by the lovely landlady. Ann, who immediately offered me tea or coffee which are complimentary throughout your stay. I arrived two hours early but she said that was no problem; and she showed me to a beautifully furnished quiet bedroom. I left my car parked outside the front door and caught a No. 1 bus from its terminus at St. John's church which is less than 100m from the Guesthouse. In fact the Dart station is only about 5 minutes' walk. The breakfast was as good as I have ever had and Anne's homemade bread is wonderful!! Thank you for an extremely comfortable stay.

I had the pleasure of staying here as I had an appointment in a local hospital. All I can say is that it is an absolute gem and can wholeheartedly say I will be back! Even with certain Covid restrictions, the staff and owners were so warm and friendly. I was greeted and brought to the drawing room where I was shown a local map with all amenities marked in and given a brief rundown of walking distances - super helpful if you want to walk about and enjoy the sights and smells. I was then shown to my room where the loveliness continued - a beautiful double four poster bed in a room with gloriously high ceilings and large windows - I make a point of mentioning this as over the years I’ve stayed in many Dublin hotels and the rooms have been nothing short of small boxes. You will not have this problem in the Aberdeen Lodge! I had a comfortable nights sleep and had a beautiful home cooked breakfast the next morning - the eggs and fresh squeezed orange juice are on point! I also had the pleasure of meeting the owners Mary and Pat, and also Sandy, who was very attentive and friendly while I had my breakfast :-) No complaints - the Aberdeen Lodge is a beautiful place to stay in Dublin!

I had the pleasure of staying here whilst on a trip home to visit my father who was sick in St. Vincent’s hospital. I honestly have to say that it is one of the places out there that knows old school customer service! Ann and her staff were absolutely wonderful, so personable, friendly and it felt like home away from home. It is so beautiful and clean, warm and cosy. I would sit by the fireplace in the living room every night before going to bed which was so relaxing. I didn’t want for anything as the girls were so attentive and just wanted to make sure I was enjoying my stay. When I return home sometime in the future, I will definitely stay there, 1st choice hands down!!! During a very difficult time, I would like to wish Aberdeen Lodge and all the staff (and Sandy 🐾) the very best. Warmest regards, Tara!

Hi Tara, Thank you so much for both staying with us and your kind words. Ann sends you her regards - she is home schooling the kids so has her hands full. A woof woof from Sandy and we look forward to seeing you again, hopefully in the not so distant futue. GiGi

Really nice suburban location. Very good at arranging trips-would especially recommend Wicklow mountains tour. By the coast so a nice walk along the beach and a short walk from the fab food cooked up at the Crudo in Sandymount. Very good breakfasts, especially liked the full Irish breakfast and the peanut butter cookies with tea and coffee were amazing. Staff could n t have been more helpful and contributed to our very enjoyable stay
