Have been running the B & B for 8 (URL HIDDEN) a keen golfer and have a handicap of twelve, so if you need to make up the numbers or you fancy a challenge i'm game!!
The rooms were clean & comfortable. Small village with basic amenities close to the airport. Jim was prompt to meet us on arrival. Other than not having a kettle in the room to make a tea things were adequate.
Very nice rooms, we got two rooms instead of one family room because of availability. Jim was very helpful and sent me travel directions as well as the results of the Ireland - South Africa Rugby match :)
He took us to the local pub, where we had a good time.
The family room (which is two rooms!) was very clean and comfortable for our family of 4. The train station is very near and there are frequent trains to Dublin city (perfect because you probably won't want to go there by car). Since the airport is also very near, this location is perfect for the start or the end of your Ireland holiday.
Although our stay was very short (arriving quite late and leaving quite early), we enjoyed our stay at Jim's B&B very much. The rooms were very clean, cozy and comfortable, Jim was friendly and helpful, and we were able to get to the airport in 15 minutes the next day.
We had a really nice time at Jim's place, he is a friendly and helpful host. The room was all clean and comfy and the Irish-breakfast-experience was excellent. We can highly recommend this place if you want to explore the Dublin area. When we were there the weather was great and warm (28 degrees) and spent all day at Donabate beach.
The train station is only a 5 minutes walking distance! Jim also organized a taxi since we had to leave very early to the airport.
Thank's again for everything, Jim!
Jim greeted us with warm Irish hospitality on our last night in Ireland. We arrived late and left very early so didn't really get a chance to spend much time. Tea & chocolate before bed was the perfect ending to the perfect day!
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. :)
My parents and I stayed one night at Jim's place before an early flight out of Dublin airport. He very kindly upgraded my partner & I to our own bedroom for no extra cost, which was wonderful! He's very friendly and the house was perfect for our needs. Thanks again Jim!
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!
We stayed at Jim's place for 3 nights including our first night abroad. It was a relaxing place to arrive as it's in a small residential community north of Dublin, but near the airport. Jim was a knowledgeable host and had good advice for traveling within Dublin and further into Ireland. The rooms were cosy and clean. The breakfast was great.
