Ballsbridge, Dublin 4, Dublin
The Aberdeen Lodge is a charming mid-range hotel with bay windows and climbing ivy, surrounded by brick walls. This small guesthouse is located near Dublin Bay and the exclusive Ballsbridge neighborhood. Rooms are quaint and classic -- some have four-poster beds -- and all have free Wi-Fi. This lodge has lovely common spaces including a drawing room with a fireplace and manicured outdoor garden. One hotel highlight is the extensive daily breakfast, with items such as house-made preserves, bread, and pastries. While located away from the center of Dublin in a leafy, residential neighborhood, the DART train is nearby for easy access to the main sights.
