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, together with shampoo 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.
Thank you Dave and Ann,
To find a beautifully laid out home, so well stocked with welcome.
We had a wonderful week with our family, a toy room and a closed in large garden for the grandchildren, a large kitchen table for all to
share and even a Scrabble time when the children had gone home.
Our sons and wives loved it as a proper home where we could all spend time together. Another visit is well on the cards!
Great house, very well located. Wonderful hosts. My family had a great time during the holidays. The house has everything you would think of. Perfect for families with children.
House was fantastic! Very clean! There is a fenced in backyard for kids to run around as well as toy room off the kitchen! Dave and Ann were very welcoming and gave us a wonderful orientation to house and surroundings. They even have a binder with laminated sheets to orient you to the city! Best hosts to date!
We stayed in Dave and Ann's house for a week with our four young children. It worked out very well. The house was great with lots of space for everyone and it was particularly nice that there were a few different living room spaces where different people could do different things, including a playroom with a variety of toys for the smaller kids.
The outdoor space is lovely. There is a very nice deck with a barbecue and fire pit as well as a nice bit of lawn. Because the whole property is gated we felt very comfortable letting the kids run around as they liked.
We also took advantage of the wide range of DVDs in the house when the children needed to wind down or when we wanted a quieter evening.
What is probably Ireland's most upscale mall is a short walk away and there is a wide range of restaurants and bars there that would cover pretty much any kind of food you would want. We didn't go into Dublin proper (we were visiting relatives) but there is good public transport close by as well.
Dave and Ann welcomed us warmly with a clear description of how to use everything in the house and with a variety of foods to tide us over for a day or so which meant we didn't need to worry about getting to the shops immediately.
Overall we had a very nice time and would heartily recommend this house if you are looking to stay in the area.
Dave and Ann are some of the most wonderful people we met while in Ireland. Their fun and generous attitude made us feel like we were at a home away from home. We didn't have any issues to speak of, but whenever we had any questions about anything they were quick to help us. Whether we had questions on how to drive, where to grocery shop, or where to visit while in Ireland, they were very helpful. And the house was absolutely perfect for our rotating big family. When we had 4 of us it was perfect and when we had 7 it was perfect. In addition, the house was comfortable for all ages. My 2 year old had a great little playroom and my 57 year old mother loved the sitting room and patio. They had everything you could need to be comfortable while away from home. And the garden, including the large patio, is just beautiful and well kept. Dave and Ann gave us as much privacy as we wanted, but were there whenever we needed anything regardless of how simple it was. This was my first stay using Air B&B and I can only hope we have this much luck in the future. I highly recommend this property not only because the property itself is great, but because the owners are awesome people.
P.s.- my pianist daughters loved playing their piano everyday! They put many hours in on that piano and it was great fun for the whole family.
We had a lovely stay. We are a family of 8 adults and youth. There was plenty of room for all of us in the 4 bedrooms, 3 living rooms, 2 bathrooms, and ample kitchen. Plenty of parking. Unlimited hot water - nice for long showers multiplied by 8 people. Outdoor barbecue, deck, and enclosed yard. Reliable high speed Wifi. The owners live there when they are not renting it out so it is well cared for. Plenty of towels, blankets, and other essentials. Stocked with useful information and maps about the area are a nice touch. The solid home security system gives you peace of mind when sleeping at night or away touring the city. A huge supermarket is a 10 minute walk away. The train station is a 10 minute walk then 20 minutes by train to the city center. The owners were extremely helpful, very available, welcoming, and respectful of our privacy. We highly recommend this house for your stay in Dublin.
We really enjoyed our stay at Large Prime South Dublin House. Dave and Ann were so welcoming. We felt at home immediately. The house had everything we needed, even fresh food in the fridge on our arrival. The house is very convenient to Dublin centre and to reach the Wicklow area. Highly recommend staying at Large Prime House.

About the Host, Dave & Ann
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!
