Historical Traveler Reviews Charleville Lodge Dublin
OK but not great
We stayed there in August because it was reasonably priced for a family of 3 - 95 euros. Based on other reviews I suspect we would have preferred the new wing. We had a ground floor family room in the old section and the closet had mold. However, the public rooms were lovely and the service was great.
It was a bit of a hike to the city center, and the walk wasn't always lovely. Next time I'll probably spend more and stay right in the center.
My partner and I stayed at the Charleville Lodge last week and I must say that our stay could not have been more enjoyable. Our room was located in their garden wing overlooking the courtyard. It was very comfortable and excellent value. The guesthouse is family run and the staff went out of their way to ensure we had an enjoyable stay. This type of friendliness would not be seen in a five star hotel!!! Breakfast was hot and delicious with a great variety of food. We will be returning to Charleville Lodge without a doubt and would recommend it highly to anybody looking for comfort, quality and friendliness at a very reasonable price.
Really enjoyable stay
My wife and I had a really pleasant stay here. The hotel had just been refurbished and was in SPOTLESS condition. We would highly recommend Charleville Lodge
A fantastic stay!!
We stayed at Charleville Lodge for 3 nights and 4 days and couldn't have wished for a better hotel.
Yes, the tv may only have 3 channels...but if you travel all the way to Dublin to moan about the tv channels in your hotel...you're not making the most of your stay!
Our room was fantastic. Roomy, clean, tidy, fresh towels/soap/shampoo every day.
The staff were all friendly and welcoming and keen to help us in any way possible. They gave us advice on sights to see/avoid, the bus route into the centre etc.
Fair enough, it is at least a 20 minute walk to the centre from the lodge but what better way to see Dublin? We walked back several times after 12am and NEVER felt uneasy.
I agree with the previous reveiwer..if you've never been to Dublin, what are you waiting for??????? It's an amazing, surprisingly friendly city.
Would NOT stay here again!
We stayed at Charleville Lodge for one night in November. It's in a not so great area of Dublin so if you are planning on doing a lot in Dublin I would stay somewhere more centrally located. One good point was the nice man who was working the night shift. We arrived fairly late (11:30pm) and had to check in and park our car. He was very sweet and understanding.
The room was crap and a total rip-off! The room was tiny, barely enough room to walk around the bed. It definitely needed a fresh coat of paint and new carpet. The bath was small and pretty clean. We could hear all the traffic on the street so it was pretty loud as well. A room at the back might alleviate that problem. The breakfast room was cute, and of course that's what they showcase on their website so you think the rest of the place is ok. Breakfast was good and had a nice selection. We basically just slept here one night and then drove west, so it was ok for that purpose, but is certainly NOT worth the nearly 90 Euros we paid! It was worth about 50 Euros a night given the shabbiness and location!
Would not stay here again, nor can I recommend it with good conscience.
Old, 1950's hotel
This is an old inn, and very lumpy beds. The t.v. only gets 3 channels, if it works. It's just a very basic accommodation with no lift. Don't expect much. It's a 10 minute bus ride from the center city.
We had booked and payed our stay at Charleville Lodge in December 2003 for September 2004. 3 days before departure to Dublin the hotel manager
told us about problems with the travel agent. Supposedly the hotel didn't received our amount and if we would like to keep our room we have to pay the sum again (with a little discount). That was not really fair because our travel agent confirmed our booking and the transfer of the money. What was going wrong? We didn't accept the hotel's
offer and we advise tourists who like to stay in Charleville Lodge not to pay the full amount in advance! Perhaps they have to pay twice...
Bit far out of the city centre
Stayed here for the Robbie Williams gig last summer - nice guesthouse with a good cooked breakfast,large rooms and in a good state of decoration.Downside - the "coffee making facilities" were a coffee pot in the corridor where they ran out of cups/milk/sugar very early in the day.My only other gripe is the location - it is NOT 15 minutes walk into Dublin - it's at least a brisk half hour to Temple Bar from here.The bus is good but make sure you have correct fare or you won't get on - and the Lodge won't change any money for you. The last bus back this way is also very early so you will need to save your beer vouchers for a taxi and not have that last Guinness....Oh, and if you haven't been to Dublin and are thinking about it - JUST GO
Had a great weekend break
Very comfortable and clean All staff very friendly and helpful Breakfast hot and tasty We had a very pleasant stay

... to me if this was the line for Dublin - she replied yes. We began talking about travels and such, and ended up sitting together on the coach. The drive was so long. We started at 6, and took an hour break at 9...at which point, we went into the shop and all bought some liquor haha. We had made friends with the people behind us, all of which, including Sara (the girl I met in the queue in London), were Australian. I always seem to find ...

When I arrived in Ireland last time I had also come straight from London. I immediately felt comfortable in Dublin, and was captivated by the beauty of the regional areas and the friendly, outgoing nature of the people. When I arrived this time, driving though the streets of Dublin I had a bit of a ...

January 14- Wednesday:
Wednesday was filled with orientation stuff, welcome parties, and filling out forms. We made our way downtown to the famous store Penney's where I got a few things for my room and an awesome warm jacket that I've been wearing every day since! We also went to a random garage type of sale on campus that day where I picked ...
