Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The Celtic Lodge is very close to O’Connell Street, convenient to the Abbey Theatre and the Gate and to lots of restaurants. Security is very good and the rooms are very small but adequate, if you don’t need a lot of space. Breakfast was excellent. The best thing about the Celtic Lodge is Sean, who is usually on the front desk. He is friendly , personable, and very helpful. He gave us lots of tips about restaurants, transportation, etc. We will return the next time we are in Dublin.

We were very disappointed by our room. it has nothing to do with the photos. we travelled with our son, so we booked for 3. the manager shawn did not want to send us photos, although we demanded them two times. he charged our credit card for 2 nights before our arrival 576 euro. we arrived, the room had 8 m2, even for 2 it is impossible, we could not unfold the bed for our son. the small window could not even be opened so there s not air in the room. this is not the real room. the price is sooo exaggerated. the personnel especially the ladiesfrom the restaurant is very nice though, but the management policy is not fair nore honest. it really left a bad mark on our stay in ireland.

This is the worst place I have ever stayed in. Grotty, unhelpful unreasonable staff. More like hostel than guesthouse. Rooms are so loud with noise underneath there is no way anyone would get any sleep. Shockingly bad for the prices charges. In grotty area known for prostitutes. Run down . No air con. Do not touch with barge pole if want any sleep . And even when had to leave as so noisy wouldn’t offer refund. Awful awful place..

I would research other places in the area before booking here. The staff were nice but the location of the hotel is above a bar that plays music loudly late into the night it would’ve been nice to have known this beforehand. We understood booking in a city there might be noise or it might be smaller rooms but for over 200 a night it was pretty disappointing and felt like the hotel marketed itself as higher end when it’s not. Bathroom had mold and room wasn’t super clean. Location was good but I’d look elsewhere for more comparable places.

We made a reservation for 4 nights. After we checked in we received word that we had a family member in ICU back in the states and that we may need to leave early. We spoke to the person on duty and they said nothing could be done to refund us unless Sean approved. We went up to our room to try and rest for the evening. The rooms had no air in them at all. We opened the window but the music was so loud. I finally called for a fan and was told there were none. The music continued to keep us awake along with how stuffy the room was. I called again. I was told it was rude that I called late in the night again to ask for a fan. They eventually brought one at 4 am but didn’t bring one for our second room. We had to leave in the morning and again we were told to contact Sean. We have emailed Sean a few times asking for even a partial credit but he just ignores our emails. The light in our kids bathroom didn’t work, the water pressure was nonexistent. Sad that management will not a knowledgeable istomer emails. Don’t stay

Do not touch this guesthouse with a barge pole. My family and I had a four night stay at this guesthouse. The rooms have little or no soundproofing, the nightlife on Talbot street is considerably loud, so you have absolutely no chance of sleep until the late small hours. One of our party had a non functioning TV, when we complained we were given total BS about all the TVs being upgraded and it would be back working the next day, needless to say the TV was still non functioning when we left. There is NO LIFT at this place, so beware. Our shower was very basic and tired with poor water pressure. One evening my parter and I went out for an evening meal, when we got back we knocked on the exterior door, the man behind the reception desk was reading a newspaper, he didn’t even raise his eyes and totally ignored us. It fell to another member of staff to let us in. IGNORANT. In short this place is awful, do yourself a favour a find somewhere else.

I booked the a last minute stay at the Celtic Lodge based on good reviews and I’m happy I did. The room was cozy and the bed was comfortable. We ate downstairs at the restaurant and had the delicious Irish stew with the homemade Guinness bread. We had a great time at the pub next door listening to live Irish music. The morning we left we had a delicious breakfast made by Margaret. The rest of the ladies were wonderful including Esther, Tami, Marie and Allison. I’d also like to mention Aaron and Bradley from the restaurant and pub. I will definitely stay here on my next return to Dublin.

The lodge was perfect for a stay in the city proper. Quiet, despite being so close to pubs and clubs. Wonderful location, staff was absolutely delightful and breakfast was grand! Highly recommend! Would definitely stay there again when Dublin.

I love this place the staff are so welcoming especially the beautiful young lady on front desk (Ciera?) Her smile would brighten up your day. Breakfast is delicious and the ladys are all so welcoming,always making sure I was ok for everything. I will definitely be back it's my new home away from home! Beds are a little on the low side but confortable.

I arrived at 1am to find my booking had been cancelled and I had nowhere to stay in Dublin on a Saturday night. I booked the room two weeks in advance but they gave it to someone who just walked in on the night. Totally spoiled my one day trip to Dublin. When I emailed the manager afterwards he didn't even bother to respond.
