    Location 5.5 /10

    The Aberdeen Lodge is located on the very peaceful 'Park Avenue', in a very upmarket residential area (Ballsbridge) where each house is as beautiful as the last. It is close to Sydney Parade (DART) station, numerous embassies (French, Chinese, etc.) and the residence of the former Irish Prime Minister.

    Accommodation 7.45 /10

    The 16 rather spacious rooms consist of 8 modest "Classic" rooms, 6 "Deluxe" rooms and 2 suites which are all decorated in soft colours. All rooms have a pleasant view and are laid out differently, with a high double or king-size bed, a small desk, storage, a television (some of them flat-screen) and a telephone. Four of the "Deluxe" rooms have four-poster beds and the hotel is carpeted throughout. The suites consist of a large bedroom and a lounge area. The tiled bathrooms are modest and clean and are equipped with a bathtub, washbasin, hair-dryer and basic hospitality products. Tea or coffee can be ordered free of charge, should you so wish. Room service is available until midnight.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    Just like the residences surrounding it, the Aberdeen Lodge is housed in a beautiful three-storey building consisting of two adjoining houses built at the end of the 19th century. The nice little car-park just in front of the hotel is ideal. Guests will really feel at home when they enter the guesthouse. A large part of the ground floor is set aside as the owners' living quarters, so the tiny reception is open until 1:00am, after which guests must use a card to enter the premises. The walls of the corridor are adorned with various awards that the guesthouse has won. A door opens into a cosy, charming lounge with Edwardian furniture (checked sofas and armchairs), low-lighting, a marble fireplace, a small library area and a computer. Every painting is worth studying, as are the various Edwardian pieces. The property is enclosed by low walls and the tall trees surrounding it guarantee guests' privacy. The small garden, from where you can see the large open kitchen, is carpeted with a beautiful lawn; and the small, pretty terrace area adorned with potted flowers is decked with four round tables. All the while, the household cat strolls peacefully around the ground floor of the property.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    In the kitchen, guests will find the lady of the house, who will lovingly prepare traditional Irish dishes for you, depending on the time of day. Depending on the weather, guests can relax in the small, modest, pale-coloured sitting room or on the small garden terrace. A delicious continental or even (traditional) Irish breakfast is served. A small buffet also serves fruits and cereals, and guests are invited to choose anything else from the menu (poached eggs, fish, etc.). The menu features very basic snacks such as sandwiches, a small selection of cheeses, etc. The wine menu offers a large selection.

    To know

    Guests who discover the Aberdeen Lodge come back in their droves, and the owner also has another small establishment, Merrion Hall, 2,789ft away.

      The Davenport hotel is housed in a former church which dates back to 1863 and enjoys a central location not far from Trinity College and St. Stephen's Green park. Needless to say, its façade is unique, and the fine interior decor is impeccable as the hotel was renovated at the end of 2008. Basically, this is a good place to stay for those who like to keep it simple!

      It really is difficult to identify the plus points of this hotel, somewhat lost along a very busy avenue far from the capital, not to mention to unpleasant odour of the surrounding marshlands. It makes a functional and very basic pied-a-terre, but nothing more!

      This hotel is ideal for business trips, due, first of all to its location in the heart of a business district, but also due to its facilities, which are a lot bigger than many of the regular city hotels, in particular its swimming pool and superb gym.

      A DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, The Morrison was not built in honour of the famous rock singer Jim Morrison, but it does pay tribute to Irish musicians, bands and artists. Reopened in February 2013 after 10 weeks of refurbishment, The Morrison now boasts a designer interior - a rare choice of decor in this city where most hotels are decorated in a more classic style. Add to this the delicious restaurant and the art gallery, and The Morrison is unquestionably a safe bet in Dublin.

      The beautiful 5-star Dylan Hotel was not built in honour of the famous rock star. No, the Dylan simply chose to take up residence in the street of the same name. Now a small hotel with 44 guest rooms, the Dylan was first a hospital, then a hotel, before becoming the Dylan Hotel. It has been welcoming guests into its entirely unique, modern and elegant interior since 2007. Far from being a chain hotel, the Dylan has a bar, restaurant and lounge, but unfortunately no well-being centre.

Apart from the massage rooms, sauna and hammam, the hotel also has a lovely large swimming pool, which is quite rare for the Irish capital. Neither too big nor too small, the Clarion Hotel enjoys a privileged location at the heart of the city centre, on the banks of the River Liffey.
