Positive Reviews


Good location for public transport

Though the lodge is neither in Dublin's centre, nor very near the terminals of its airport, guests describe it as being in a position very easy to reach by public transport from either location. Guests never seemed to feel that they were stuck in a neighbourhood with no easy options to see the sights.


Good breakfast

Many guests complimented the breakfast, and regarded it as just what they needed for an excellent start to their day. It s described as a combination of continental and fry-up, and was more than enough food.


Free parking

Though not mentioned often, the motorists who did were very grateful for the free on-site parking in a fairly central spot.

Negative Reviews


The walls are “paper thin”

A few guests complained that even in normal circumstances the walls and doors didn't do a very good job of keeping sounds from other parts of the building out of the rooms. On some occasions there were rowdy groups, and then of course even good soundproofing would not have helped.


Some rooms with shared bathroom

There seemed to be some confusion about the bathroom situation. Guests say that they booked a room with a private bathroom, but when they arrived they were allocated a room where the bathroom was not simply shared with another room, which it was, but was also one flight of stairs below.  Some make the accusation of misrepresentation on the part of the lodge, but the situation is not completely clear.


Looking a little tired

Several guests expressed the opinion that the hotel was in desperate need of a makeover. It was not usually that they said things weren't functioning properly, but rather that furniture was worn, and of a type and age that was neither fashionably modern nor classic.
