We stayed here for 1 night in the family room. Great welcome by Padraig, well done bedroom with 1 king bed and 2 single beds. Really quiet as well when you think it is next to a busy road. The highlight was the breakfast we just had, absolute fabulous fruit salad, very tasty homemade scones and brilliant hot food. Definitely will be back!

Historical Traveler Reviews Azalea Lodge Dublin
Having scoured the Tripadvisor in search of a comfortable and decently priced accommodation in Dublin, I finally chose Azalea Lodge. Upon my three night stay there, I realized that as an accommodation of repute, Azalea Lodge does not live up to its reputation. Suffice to say that I did not experience hardship during my stay at this bed and breakfast, but I was not delighted either. For a bed and breakfast that ranks the highest in terms of popularity, Azalea Lodge lacks certain luxuries that are offered by many other accommodations in the same price range.
One such luxury is the toiletry. All Azalea Lodge offered was a liquid soap placed on the bathroom sink. I have been to many a bed and breakfast in Ireland where bathrooms are equipped with soap bars, shower gels and shampoos galore. To my disappointment, there was no hairdryer at Azalea Lodge either. While other accommodations provide guests with electric kettles, tea bags, instant coffee, sweetener, and biscuits, the lack of such luxury made me hopeful that I would be offered tea by the owners. In fact, I was dying for a hot cup of tea upon my arrival to Azalea Lodge after several hours of driving in the country. The owners were indisputably amiable and cordial. They even helped with luggage. But the cup of tea and the scone that were never offered sadly disillusioned me with the whole notion of Irish hospitality.
Having read the commentators' compliments on the breakfast, I was expecting a hearty meal, beautifully adorned, offered in tastefully chosen dishes. I was again disappointed to find that all was simply mediocre. The room was clean but not spotless. The TV set was incredibly small.
While it is not a poor accommodation, Azalea lodge does not merit being the top bed and breakfast in Dublin. There is still a great deal of room for improvement at the Azalea Lodge.
Lovely B & B
Great location on a main road for easy access to both the airport and city centre. Beautiful Edwardian townhouse, immaculately clean and comfortable... and Bernadette was so kind and accomodating... and the breakfast was great! I highly recommend this B&B for anyone travelling to Dublin.
Bernadette is very nice and friendly and she runs a beautiful B&B. It was a bit more formal than others we've been to, but we were very comfortable. The rooms were spacious and clean with nice linens. We had 2 rooms for our party of 6. The one bathroom was small for a room with 3 beds(expecting 4 people), but the other bedroom had a larger bathroom. The location is great, quiet, but with a bus stop right outside the door for a quick ride into the city center. Bernadette served a wonderful hot breakfast made to order and served with fresh rolls, fruit, etc.
Our plane arrived after midnight...no problem. This B & B is perfectly lovely, a large brick house with very attractive rooms containing modern bathrooms (shower only). Very quiet despite being on the main road (equal distance) between town and airport. Buses run frequently in both directions. There is even a bus that runs directly (#41) to and from the bus station for out-of -town trips. Bus tickets can be purchased just down the street, or the very helpful and pleasant drivers accept cash. Breakfasts are very nice, with Juice, milk, yogurt, rolls, muffins, all types of cereals, coffee, served in a very pleasant room. There is also a large living room for use of the Tenants and beds are made up and changed daily . Very reasonable rates. Don't hesitate to stay here.
Azalea is a very nice place to stay. The rooms are clean, the breakfast is great and the innkeeper Bernadette is a very pleasant person!! We stayed here at our last night in Dublin
to be close to the airport next morning. All worked very well. Itīs just a 15 - 20 min.drive by
car, but the busstop is very close,too.
I too had a great experience with Bernadette's B&Bs. I had read good things about the Azalea here but found, when I rang to book, that it was fully booked. However, my colleague and I found space to stay at her other B&B, just across the road - The Ashling. It was great: clean, well-decorated, quiet off-street accommodation, reasonably priced and very convenient for getting a bus into town. When I said to Bernadette that I would have liked one of her Irish breakfasts, she agreed that we could eat at the Azalea. She was really helpful - late one evening I needed to get a print out of something off the internet and she did it for me straightaway and brought it across. Will definitely go back.
My family stayed at Azalea Lodge our last night in Ireland. I was a bit hesitant about the location, since I knew it was not in the city center. I shouldn't have worried, though, since it was an easy, cheap 10-minute busride into the downtown and we didn't feel any inconvenience. Also, it was a great commute to the airport the next day.
This B&B was the cleanest, nicest, most beautiful place we stayed in Ireland. All our B&B's were wonderful (thanks, TripAdvisor!), but Azalea Lodge stands out as the best quality for the money. It is beautifully kept without being stiff or formal. Good food, too! The hostess is great, and was especially friendly to our 3-year-old daughter. In short, I would not hestitate to recommend Azalea Lodge to anyone.
Our party visited Dublin to run the Dublin Marathon and received a great welcome from Bernadette. In the morning she dealt magnificently with the various breakfast demands of 10 by then neurotic runners with various ideas of the ideal meal 2 hours before the 26.2 mile race. She also helped us our with our logistic problems over luggage and kit, helped by the Lodge being on the way back to the Airport - much appreciated by the Halstead Road Runners
My Mother and I had a wonderful stay with Bernadette at her B&B. They are located near bus routes and about a 30 min walk into downtown. Gorgeous and clean with a wonderful breakfast! Bernadette went out of her way to cater to my Mother and I's diet choices (vegetarian and vegan) and was gracious and helpful. The B&B is also a 15 min drive from the airport and close to both Connelly and Heuston train stations. Thank you, Bernadette!
My mother, daughter and I just spent three nights at this bed and breakfast on the north side of Dublin. It was WONDERFUL. The rooms were large and airy. Very clean. The breakfast was great. I cannot say enough nice things about the owners. They were very nice and helpful. They greeted us off an overnight flight with a cup of tea and some cakes in their enclosed garden which is delightful. The day we rented our car they drove me to pick it up and waited so I could follow them back. The bus stop is just down the street to ride into the city center and two doors down where it drops you off. I cannot recommended this b&b enough.

... streets. He also helped us all brave the high hike up to Loughcrew, where 3300 BC stone enclosures show primitive artwork and pagan beliefs, built specifically to coordinate with solar eclipses. To reach this area, we had to climb up a steep, muddy, very high hill against strong winds and rains which left us spent and drenched, but the day was well worth ...
... no sign of Julie's bag, where could it be? Check with the service counter and it is apparently on the plane to Boston, they take it off the plane and no that's not Julie's :( unfortunately this means that they have no idea where it is, her bag was mislabeled so it could be anywhere, hopefully it will be delivered to the hotel soon. Into Dublin we head and we are supposed to be dropped off outside our hotel but the bus driver who was supposed to announce the stops didn't so we get dropped ...
... in time to drop off my little volksy (tear) hand back the sat nav (not throw....calmly hand back) and check in for my flight. I definitely allowed too much time, I had hours at the airport before my flight. I arrived in Madrid just before 8pm and thankfully it is warm, even at that time of night. yay! I caught a cab to my hotel, checked in and got settled, worked out the plan of attack for tomorrow and then went for a drink. Job ...
... all appropriate. Poor Emily. As we walked back down from the restrooms after drying her dress with the hand dryers, she went skipping back to the table. We decided that was a good time to leave. And the taxi ride back with Jen? Let’s just say Jen’s purse has not been the same since and Emily was crowned the barfing queen of Dublin.
And then there was ...
I then walked down the road to the pick up point where I waited for the bus. Once on the bus I promptly fell a sleep, I woke up at the rest stop just outside town (since we spent the first hour just picking people up) and then had another little nap before waking up to hear the guides commentary. She had the heat turned up so it was nice and cozy and if she had music on I was out. When I was awake I saw what really looked like a gypsy camp. That was kinda cool.
