Aberdeen Lodge

Guest house in Southside
Image by Booking.com

Not only is this absolutely one of Dublin's best guesthouses, but it's also a carefully guarded secret, known only to those who dare stay a short train ride away from the city centre. Their reward is a luxurious house with a level of personalised service as good as you'll find in one of the city's top hotels.

Most of the stunning rooms have either a four-poster, a half-tester or a brass bed to complement the authentic Edwardian furniture and tasteful art on the walls. The suites even have fully working Adams fireplaces. As there is one member of staff for every two rooms, the service is exceptional, not to mention totally hands-on and very courteous. An added touch for international guests is the 'meet and greet' service at Dublin Airport, where a driver will collect you and your baggage and escort you to the hotel in a town car (book it in advance).
