Interaction with Guests
We endeavour to meet all of our guests in order to explain how to use the appliances and security system. We also try to provide as much information as we can on the local area, the city, Wicklow tours, transport services and medical facilities in the area. We are generally contactable by phone and, should we not be available, our family are all in the immediate locality to help with questions or issues which may arise from time to time.
Dundrum is one of the best neighbourhoods in south Dublin. We have fantastic amenities closeby in the form of the Dundrum Town Centre with lots of great restaurants and shopping facilities. Transport to the city is close by in the form of our tram systems (LUAS) which is close, convenient and very reliable. We are also close to the beautiful Marley Park with hundreds of acres of woodland. Wicklow is a short drive away with easy access to all of the major attractions including Glendalough and Avoca. The house is accessed from the M50 motorway which has a direct link to Dublin Airport - journey by car to the house from the airport is about 25 minutes.
The LUAS system has two stations about 7/8/ minutes walk fro the house. It is extremely reliable and takes 15 minutes to St. Stephens Green in the heart of the city. We also have a public bus stop directly outside the house with links to the city centre and Dunlaoire. (Not as reliable as the LUAS but can be very useful for certain journeys.) Wicklow is a short drive away - 20 minutes to Glendalough, 30 minutes to Brittas Bay, 40 minutes to Avoca.
Other Things to Note
Parking for up to 5 cars is provided free of charge. All bed linen and towels are provided. If it is cold you can use our log fire and we also have a comprehensive central heating system in place.
We expect the property to be treated carefully and with respect. This is our primary home and there are personal items in view such as family photographs and so on. We expect our guests to respect such items appropriately. Smoking is not allowed in the house, however there is a large decking area outside which can be used for such purposes. There is a sophisticated security system which must be used for insurance purposes. High speed broadband connection is available - inappropriate usage is unacceptable. We will inspect the house at the end of the lease period - it is expected that any damage will be reported by the guests at that time.
We were heartly welcomed by our hosts, Dave and Ann, and got a short introduction, how everything works in the house. Both are very friendly and helpful, and can easily be reached if needed. Heating was on, and the fridge filled with fresh food for us.
The house is situated south of Dublin centre, but can easily be reached by bus or tramway (Luas). It has plenty of space for six, a nice backyard with fireplace and barbecue grill, which we both were allowed to use. The neighbourhood is safe and quite. We even noticed a couple of foxes strolling around.
The house is equipped with everything needed; even a piano is ready for use. A shopping mall with Tesco (and Lidl a bit further down the road) is a 10 min walk away, some small local shops are even closer. Nice walking and areas in the south (towards Wicklow) can easily be reached.
In summary, we had a wonderful stay in Dublin in a house where there is nothing missing, met lovely and helpful hosts (they even gave us a lift to the Luas station when we returned home), thus, I can highly recommend to stay in Dave and Ann's house while exploring Dublin and its surroundings.
We all had a very comfortable stay in the house of Dave and Ann and felt like home.
Accueil très chaleureux....Dave et son épouse sont très sympas , très attentionnés et très à l'écoute..
La maison est très confortable ( nous étions 8 ) et répond en tous points au descriptif qui en est fait....aucune surprise désagréable, bien au contraire... tout est parfait.
La proximité avec le LUAS est très appréciable, le centre ville de Dublin est très rapidement accessible.
Notre séjour a donc été très agréable et nous recommandons vivement cet hébergement....
Un grand merci à Dave et son épouse...!
Dave and Anne were wonderful hosts. They greeted us on arrival even though we had been delayed and arrived quite late in the evening. They took us through the house and explained how to use all the appliances etc. They also provided an extremely thorough information book which was very helpful and gave us invaluable information about the tram and bus transport, shopping and eateries. The house was lovely with everything we needed including a bottle of wine and breakfast items. They also made themselves available at any time and provided contact phone numbers for any questions we might have. There were 7 people in our group and the house was plenty big enough with 3 living rooms, a large kitchen, 4 double bedrooms, a bathroom including toilet, a shower room and a second toilet downstairs. We could not fault the house or the hosts. We only wish that we had stayed longer. If you want accommodation in Dublin then this is the place to stay. If we are ever in Dublin again we will definitely be hoping to stay here again. Thanks ever so much for a wonderful experience.
We loved the Large Prime South Dublin House. The location in a quiet neighborhood was great and easy access from the motorway. Dave and Ann were very helpful with directions to public transportation (close by), restaurants and shopping. There was food to get us started for breakfast and more. They gave us loads of information about sights. The house and garden are lovely - very clean and everything we needed. A great price, a great place and the greatest people! It was a wonderful introduction to our first trip to Ireland.
This was a great success. The location was perfect, with easy access to the city, the sea and the mountains. Dave and his wife were most welcoming and explained everything we needed to know and left an excellent "starter pack" of food. The house was immaculate but very homely and we (6 adults and 2 small children) settled in very quickly. The children loved the playroom where there were lots of toys to keep them amused. The other two sitting rooms were ideal so the adults could chill out without being on top of each other. The outside area was lovely and and safe for the children to play. My son-in-law loved the big gas BBQ. Dave had supplied an extra single mattress, so the children didn't have to share a double bed. We had a wonderful time. Thank you Dave and Ann
Very nice place!
We felt really welcome and at home.
Dave and Ann put in some good effort to make us feel at home and they are very available to solve any problem or to ask for information.
The house is situated in a quiet Dublin suburb about 10 minutes walk from a big shopping centre. Towels and bedsheets are provided. And there is a washing machine and dryer. The kitchen has all the utensils you need. There was even some food in the fridge to get us started.
I can really recommend this place.

About the Host, Dave
We have a large family who are now either leaving home or are living away for the moment. We also live in Wicklow during the Summer so our house is available. As an avid piano player I have a nice piano available and lots of sheet music to practice with!
