About this listing
Welcome to Gledswood Park, the heart of suburbia, but very close to town!
I have a a stylish open plan 3 bed semi-detached in Clonskeagh, 6 mins minute walk to LUAS stop, 4 mins to bus. 5 minute walk to the Gates of UCD. The Luas will get you into town in under 20 minutes. Happy to assist with pick up from Luas or the bus if this helps you at all. Family home with one parent and one child.
Nice outdoor deck and garden at back of kitchen, If you are keen on shopping look no further ! the house is one luas stop away from the largest shopping centre in Dublin (Dundrum Shopping Centre), a 20 minute walk to Ranelagh where there are plenty of fantastic restaurants at different price points. It is a 12 minute walk to Dundrum Shopping Centre and Dundrum village. If you have a car it is ideal as we are 5 minutes from the N11/M50 where you can get on the motorway to Wicklow, There is free parking outside so rental cars most welcome!
The Garden Of (website hidden). Wicklow is a 30 minute drive, you can be at the sea in 10 minutes (f you fancy a swim at Killiney let me know and I will be happy to take you out!) and in the City Centre in 15 minutes.
My previous guests have included city visitors, masters students and people who have just started working for an international company nearby. May suit person or couple coming for a weekend, who needs a room for a night or two or an international student needing reasonable accommodation for a week or so.
What makes it unique: it is light-filled and open plan, clean and tidy and very central. Good selection of DVDs (if you wish to watch one in your room), and fast broadband.
Please no smoking in the house
No cooking in the evenings - downstairs is family zone in the evenings! (you can spend as much time over breakfast as you like)
In the attic room there is a TV which plays videos, you are welcome to choose a video from the selection downstairs
Jane and her family were gorgeous hosts. Social, talkative, close and friendly, as well as helpful. All communication went easily and smooth via Airbnb, e-mail and via phone.
The location is according to the description, close to public transport and in a cute part of Dublin, calm, silent where you can relax and feel yourself home after a busy day.
I found the room cosy and in good size for my 5 nights of stay, as well as it provided a private environment such as the whole part of house what I did use during my stay.
At my next visit, Jane's offer definitely will be the choice, I highly recommend.
Jane and James both made me feel welcome in their home.
The house was clean, equipped with everything you might need during your stay, in a nice, quiet neighbourhood and the transportation (bus and luas) is pretty good compared to Dublin standards.
Thanks for the hospitality
Jane's place is really nice. The kitchen is perfect with a view of a very beautiful garden. She offered one room each for two of us. I had the rooftop room which very nice, spacious and you get to wake up with natural sunlight in the morning. When it's warmer outside, you can enjoy the sunshine in the garden and play with the adorable cats she has. Jane and her son were both really helpful and nice people. She made the house very neat and tidy. Overall it's a lovely place to stay.
We had a wonderful time staying at Janes place. She made sure we had everything we needed and made us great breakfast. The house is very nice and clean and close to the bus. Jane and her son were great hosts and i highly recommend staying there! Thank you for making us feel very welcome and for the good conversations.
I had a fantastic stay with Jane and James.
The house and room are lovely and I was made to feel very welcome.
They are a great family and wonderful hosts, I would recommend them to anyone.
Really for me my stay summed up what I had hoped AirBnB would be, a great house to stay in, and I met some great people.
I had a wonderful time at Jane's. I couldn't have hoped for more welcoming hosts. The house is close to a luas stop and within walking distance of UCD. The room itself is bright, quiet, and has plenty of storage space (with a great bed, too!), and the garden with outside dining table was a great bonus.
Jane was extremely kind and welcoming for the duration of my stay. She definitely helped make my time in Dublin awesome, and she goes above and beyond to make your stay feel special. She has a lovely home and a wonderful family.
