I loved my stay at St. Aidens. Clean, bright, airy and quiet, what more do you need. Oh and friendly staff to top it all. Close to bus stops, shops and restaurants in an upmarket residential area. What you get here is five star accomodation for B&B prices.

St. Aiden's really feels like a home from home. It is my first time in Dublin and I felt ever so comfortable in this guesthouse. It's clean, cosy and has a homely atmosphere. Situated in the very pretty Rathgar, it's an easy bus ride into city centre. Would recommend this to anyone!

Stayed here on Saturday of Bon Jovi concert, can't fault the room or service, but it was a bit overpriced for 1 nite @ €88. No wonder people don't come to stay in Ireland when they are being made to pay extortionate prices just because of an event being on. What makes it any different to a normal weekday?

We enjoyed our stay here while also attending the local synagogue. We greatly appreciated the kosher food provided for breakfast and the snack biscuits on Saturday evening with our bottle of wine we had purchased at the local Super valu market! The room was small but had a large bed and good size bathroom and shower. Very friendly hostess and... More

Stayed here for two nights and had a good experience. Room was basic with private bathroom. Irish breakfast was the best part with other options as well. It is not in a walking distance to downtown area but good bus connections. Hostess was very nice and accomodating.

We were up for the Heineken and Amlin Cup finals and spent two nights in this accommodation. The location was good for us as we picked up the No 18 bus ( a fifteen minute walk to Rathmines) to bring us to Ballsbridge. We even walked back from Ballsbridge on Saturday night as it was a lovely night. There is... More

My husband, me and our 7 years old (at that time) were visiting family in Dublin in May 2011. The family lives in the area, that is why we choose this B&B in the first place. We did not read any reviews before getting there and were a bit nervous getting there. But we were so happy we came there.... More
