Located in the thick of Dublin’s Lower Gardiner Street B&B territory, the Abbott Lodge boasts some of Dublin’s least expensive starting double room rates. They’re so low (at €39) that they’re actually cheaper than what a couple might shell out at many hostels in Dublin. That a Full Irish breakfast is included in the nightly rate is something of a mind-boggler.

Although they’re not classically "antique" or super stylish, the Abbot Lodge’s 29 rooms do the cheapo trick. We spied lots of earthtones: browns, oranges, beiges. The result resembles how a really hardcore fall fanatic fan might prepare for the season. All are equipped with coffee and tea facilities, a television and free Wi-Fi.

The bathrooms, all private, are on the small side but adequate.

Two B&Bs were combined to create the present-day guesthouse, which also features a kitchen and dining room that resemble a country cottage.

As for location, the Abbot is right up there with the rest of the Lower Gardiner crew: It's close to shopping, the Liffey and, of course, not terribly far from the infamous Temple Bar scene.

The Abbott Lodge is a great option for anyone for whom a low rate is the highest priority. The rooms are clean, the location is relatively central and the management is courteous.

Breakfast is included in the room rate.

About the Abbot Lodge neighborhood

Starting just above the Liffey, Gardiner Street shoots north from the Custom House, a behemoth of an 18th-century building located near Butt Bridge and across the water from Trinity College. Although not particularly scenic, Gardiner Street Lower offers a wealth of hotels and B&Bs with proximity to the Henry Street and O’Connell Street shopping areas.
