Check In
  • GREAT pillows, great bed, huge rooms, lovely place. Friendly host and DELICIOUS breakfast. Very close to Dublin airport and easy to find. Overall we plan to return anytime we are in Ireland. Highly recommend. We stayed in the family room - which was AMAZING for our family of four. :)

  • Wir hatten einen tollen Urlaub in Irland, mit dem wir uns zugleich einen großen Reisewunsch erfüllen konnten. Jim ist ein sehr netter Gastgeber und vor allem die Lage nah am Flughafen und nur ca. 25 Minuten von der Dubliner Innenstadt überzeugte!

    We had a great holiday in Ireland, on which we could fulfill one of our oldest trip desire. Jim is a very nice host and above all the close proximity to the airport persuades to stay at Donabate Lodge and additional the City Center of Dublin is only a 25 min. ride with the train!

  • Jim has a great place in a nice neighborhood just a minute from downtown (you can see main street from house). Very comfortable, convenient and clean and Jim makes a good breakfast too!

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Jim at his Donabate BnB on the outskirts of Dublin.

    Jim runs a very clean and pleasant BnB. Our two rooms were more than adequate for 4 adults (2 parents and 2 young adult children). They ware clean, well appointed and had very comfortable beds. Jim’s location is very convenient to the train in and out of the city and Jim's neighborhood is very safe.

    There are a few local pubs and restaurants worth a visit within easy walking distance.

    Jim accommodated our late arrival and early departure and he was easy to communicate with by email.

    Jim serves a great Irish breakfast and is knowledgeable about Dublin and its offerings.

    A grocery store is two blocks away.

    I recommend a stay at this very pleasant Dublin/Donabate BnB three blocks from the local train station.

    Jim, thanks for a memorable stay in Dublin.

  • Jim is an awesome host. He kindly helped us with little details, like dropping luggage early, leaving late, helping with or organising transport... The place is easy to find by car, or walking from Donabate train station.

    Donabate village is small and quiet, lots of places to eat within 100m walking distance. The train station is 5m away if you walk slowly, and trains go every hour and take about 30m to Pearse station, which is near Trinity College, Dublin. Ask for a family day ticket, it's currently only 10€!
    Transport to the airport is best by car, a cab costs about 20€.
    Donabate has multiple golf courses, so if that's your passion, Jim's lodge will be the perfect place for you!

    The family room is actually two with two beds each plus bath ensuite. The room is clean, beds are good.
    Jim's full Irish breakfast is awesome, and he was happy to help with special requests by my daughter.

    Overall, a very recommendable place! Thank you, Jim!

  • Great place to stay when wanting to be near the airport. Much cheaper than staying in Dublin plus no traffic. The small town has a pub (or two) along with some places to eat and a grocery store. The train goes through constantly and the ride is only 20-25 minutes into downtown Dublin.

  • Jim was a great host! He was hospitable in every way possible and constantly made sure my friends and I were comfortable during our weekend stay in Dublin. Jim's place is about 20-25 minutes away from the city center but the commute is very easy and straightforward by train. I would recommend anyone going to Dublin to stay with Jim!
