Historical Traveler Reviews Roxford Lodge Hotel Dublin
Aggie, the innkeeper, was hands down the nicest we met in Ireland. We traveled with a one year old baby, and her hospitality was wonderful. This is a great place to stay if you have an infant - our one year old slept in the pack n'play the hotel had arranged, ate in their comfortable high chair at breakfast, and Aggie allowed access to her refigerator to refill the baby's milk and store her food. The great location of the hotel, comfortable rooms, and reasonable price make this a safe bet even for the pickiest traveler. Would definitely stay here again.
My wife, myself and our two kids 5 and 2yrs recently stayed at the roxford lodge during our stay in ireland. What a great hotel! The service was great, the facilities were good- we even had a spa and sauna in our large room! The breakfast was extensive, and the staff couldn't do enough to make our stay more comfortable. Free internet access in the lounge was also a nice feature. The staff provided tea and coffee in the room, but also offered to bring a fresh pot of tea or coffee up to us or to be served in the lounge which was nice. The only gripe was that the directions to the hotel given on the website were hard to follow. It was a refreshing stay,very well priced and we absolutely loved it. Thankyou again roxford lodge. We used 'trip advisor' to find this hotel and we found the previous reccomendations very helpful.
Sorry -- Not That Great!
Although the desk staff was very friendly and helpful, I thought this place was a bit weird. From the outside, it is very impressive. And the location was great for us, we didn't mind the walk into the main area of Dublin. The free secure parking was very convenient. Our room itself was kind of "off". The decor was quirky and outdated. There was a huge tacky sauna taking up a big space in the room. Our room was overlooking the parking lot. There was just a strange vibe at this place. Breakfast was average. I couldn't recommend it. Plus, some related advice: we tried to drive in Dublin and it was the biggest mistake we made on our 2 wk trip around Ireland. We're city drivers and we thought we could handle it -- but it was terrible!!! I know there's someone out there like us thinking it probably isn't THAT bad, but it is!!! Trust us! Most things you'd want to see are within walking distance, but take a cab or bus to the Guinness Brewery, Kilmainham Gaol, and the Cemetary and Botanical Gardens. We loved Dublin but almost didn't survive it because of the horrible traffic and confusing roads!
Great value, great breakfast, convenient location!
Stayed here with 3 girlfriends on our 2nd visit to Dublin. Staff very friendly - we were offered a cup of tea or coffee every time we walked in the door no matter the hour! The rooms were fine - including a highly amusing and crazy box of a small 2 person sauna in each clean room. Quiet location and very easy to walk into St Stephens in 15 minutes.
The breakfast was great - full Irish but you could have a healthy alternative with fruit or yoghurt. So all round a good value hotel choice for Dublin city.
We liked the School House bar along the road for a first of last drink of the evening.
Great hotel - will stay here again!
I had to spend a week in Dublin on business but as I'd never been before I was nervous about finding a decent hotel. Thanks to the TripAdvisor reviews, I selected this place and was very glad I did! OK, so my room was a little 'over-decorated' (patterned stained glass over the bed, for starters) but it was scrupulously clean, with a good bed, well designed, and where else will you get a sauna, a jacuzzi and FREE broadband in your room for 80 euros per night?! The staff are wonderfully friendly - every time they see you they ask whether you'd like a cup of tea - and breakfast was very decent (whether you want a full Irish or just a bowl of cereal).
The hotel is located in the leafy residential area of Ballsbridge to the south-east of the city centre, just over the canal; it took no more than 15 minutes to walk to the Georgian centre of town (Trinity College, etc), and you get to walk past one of the oddest statutes of Oscar Wilde that you're ever likely to see. There is also a bus-stop right outside that will take you direct into the city centre. The Aircoach bus (from the airport) drops off and picks up at a stop about 200 m from the hotel.
I will come back!
Great for families
We found the Roxford Lodge to be ideal for our small family--the family room had two singles and one double bed, and the staff was very friendly and helpful to us. The location is a bit of a walk from the major tourist sites, but not bad--it gives you a chance to stroll through Merrion Square, which was beautiful in the Spring.
Myself and my boyfriend arrived in Dublin on a wing and a prayer with nowhere to spend the night hoping to find a half decent room, somewhere to rest our weary heads. What we got instead was excellant hospitality, wonderful service and a lovely holiday. Both the day and night staff were helpful and friendly, doing their best to cater our every need with a warm smile. We had both a sauna and a jacuzzi in our room, a T.V and a large bed, all for a reasonable price. It was the best nights sleep I've had in a long time and I can't wait to stay again.
A comfortable night's sleep
A small hotel not far from the city centre, so the car could be left in the secure car park. The receptionist was helpful and friendly. Our room was at the back and it was quiet at night so we had a good night's sleep. Rooms and garden clean and well presented.
Fantastic Hospitality! Lovely B&B!
Our favorite night's stay during our 11 days in Ireland was at the Roxford. After a long train ride from Galway, we were greeted with incredible hospitality by Lynne who directed us to a beautiful room with a sauna and jacuzzi tub (and she helpfully showed us how everything works). Then we warmed up in the lovely sitting room by a fire and were brought tea and biscuits. Lynne recommended a nice park for a little walk and a very good restaurant. The hotel is well kept, in a great neighborhood (close to downtown but far enough out to be quiet) and is a very good value. When I return to Dublin I will definitely stay at the Roxford!
A wonderful welcome - no problem
We were made wonderfully welcome at this excellent small hotel. Agnes and her staff simply said 'No problem' to anything we asked or even hinted at. On arrival, exhausted and stressed, we were brought a wonderful pot of tea and chocolate biscuits. My wife and I were fortunate enough to enjoy the executive suite. In addition to the four poster bed we enjoyed our own sauna, jacuzzi and kitchen facilities. If you wish to enjoy very clean and comfortable facilities, close to the city centre, and value courtesy and care then visit the Roxford Lodge. I recommend it warmly.

The day starts with a nice breakfast at our hotel. Funny little restaurant where an even funnier little lady serves fresh continental breakfast or the full Irish shabang. Then its off to discover the town via the Open top hop on hop off bus with driver / guides who have that very funny Irish sense of humour "I really like me mother in law, its het …
It's the night before I depart. I'm feeling ok, if a little too calm. My bag is packed and everything I wanted to bring fit perfectly, with room to spare and only comes in at 14kg - should I be worried?? I think I have sorted everything that was on my numerous lists, including the hospital visit this morning to get the all clear for my finger and even a sneaky haircut before I go!

... we rented a car so we could make our journey down to Waterford, Ireland! Now just to be perfectly clear, the trip to Waterford was supposed to take a maximum of two hours, but for my grandparents & I driving for the first time on the "wrong side" of the road, it took us around 8 hours! We couldn't find the right motorway (highway) and got lost many times,but we eventually made it, after hitting a few curbs ...
... I'll come back and be back to work Sunday.
Dublin's great but I'm really looking forward to getting out of the city and seeing some of the Irish countryside on the way there. Belfast should be fun, I'm sure I'll have a lot to say about it on this blog when I get back. For this post though I'm just happy to report I'm working again and can stay here longer and still ...
So Eric and I got up with quite the hangover, but we still had a few hours to kill before our bus back to Dublin, so we decided to give the Sports simulator a go. We get there, and the owner is quite keen on us trying out his huge warehouse full of 9 sports to try out. It was actually a lot of fun because we had to compete (me vs Eric) on many different sports: Soccer, Hurling, Golf, Putting, Rugby Kicking, ...
