Imagine checking into a hotel where they serve you a delicious cream tea on arrival instead of asking you for your credit card immediately? That philosophy of customer service is what sets Aberdeen Lodge in Dublin apart from the rest. 

A handsome period house located in the leafy and fashionable Ballsbridge area of south Dublin, it’s centrally located (close to the Sydney Parade DART metro station) yet far enough away from the heavy traffic of nearby Merrion Road for the day to move at a more sedate pace. 

This gorgeous boutique hotel shares a neighborhood with the world's major embassies, who have chosen this exclusive area of Dublin for its convenience to the city center. It may have helped that the facilities and shopping in the area are second to none. 

You’ll discover that the staff is extremely pleasant and helpful (you can expect to receive the tea and biscuits I mentioned on arrival yourself) and the housekeeping is immaculate. Large well-kept gardens surrounding nearby grand mansions give Aberdeen Lodge an air of refined exclusivity. 

You can also look forward to a particularly good breakfast served in the dining room, which has a floor to ceiling glass window looking out on the hotels mature garden. Anyone who knows Dublin and Ireland knows what a soothing prospect a well-kept garden is on a summer afternoon. 

A member of the Haplin chain of hotels that includes other top class venues like Merrion Hall and Blake’s Hotel and Spa (both also handily located in Dublin) the Aberdeen Lodge offers an ideal combination of old world charm and modern customer service.
