If Dublin's city center is a Georgian wonder, a short commute (15-minute walk) to the historic Phibsborough area of Dublin's Northside will transport you to the Victorian 19th century and to this lodge comprising a row of completely restored terraced houses. Rest a while in the lodge's rather austere residents' lounge, with its antique-leather lawyer's chairs and working fireplace. Upstairs, guest rooms are simple but brightly colored, wide, and have high ceilings. As for the commute, the No. 10 bus takes but five minutes and it's an easy walk in good weather.
