Broadstone is a city centre neighborhood with a sleepy residential feel, however only 10mins walk from the capital's central promenade: O'Connell St. and a further 10mins walk to the Templebar area. For those who want to give their feet a rest, we are right beside a high frequency bus route 46A and also a DublinBikes station no.12. (email hidden), or (website hidden). We are located on the airport side of the centre so you'll have easy access to Dublin airport via taxi, express bus or local bus. There is also on-street parking outside the front door.
If you tire of shopping on nearby O'Connell street or the nightlife of Templebar, you will be glad of our Dublin 7 location. From here you can visit Francis Bacon's studio at the Hugh Lane Gallery, the magnificent Botanic Gardens, the Phoenix Park, or just stroll along the Royal Canal.
No doubt you'll be satisfied with this green and central location, and we're LGBT friendly.
The stay with Paul and Emerson was great.
The rooms are quite large and beautiful. On top of that you have access to a lovely kitchen, living room, and a great garden. Paul and Emerson both gave us a great amount of privacy but were sure to make themselves available to help us with getting around or if any problems came up.
The flat is located on the north side of Dublin so it's not the closest you could get to the "sites" probably, but it's all definitely still within walking distance. Plus there is a massively robust bus system.
All in all we had a wonderful experience and we highly recommend staying here :)
Paul was a great host. The flat was very nice with everything you need to rest and relax after a day in Dublin. There are small cafes, a deli, and a drug store nearby, which was quite convenient. We totally enjoyed are stay and wish we could have stayed longer.
Our stay at Paul house was fantastic! The house was very comfortable, clean, well equipped and nice, and close to the city center. But the best was the honer, Paul is a gentle host that cares about his guess. Our Stay at Paul's was one of the best our trip in EIRE.
Of course, we will recommend this accommodation in Dublin!

Paul was really kind and clever. Nice to chat with him. The place is nice, really cool room with a hudge and comfortable bed! Is a bit far from the center but really not a problem...
Paul was an absolutely fantastic host. The room was clean and airy and the bed was so unbelievably comfortable it really could have been a hotel. The bathroom was perfect too - lots of hot water and very modern. Overall, the house itself has an air of charming seclusion. It's clean and in a very quiet neighborhood. There isn't much right on the block but it's a quick 20 minute walk to the main throughfare and the bus, which comes very regularly, is just one block away. Also, it's very convenient to the Botanical Gardens, the square of Remembrance, and the Writer's Museum. It's a great oasis to come back to after long days of exploring!
When I arrived, Paul sorted out little details with me immediately (spare key, bus routes, water heater etc). He was very organized, which wasn't surprising given how responsive he was over email. He then gave me a little walking tour of Dublin, which I incredibly appreciated, and helped me get situated by showing me the tourist's office and explaining the various ways to get around.
Throughout my stay Paul, and his warm and charming partner Emerson, were unfailingly gracious, polite, and helpful. They offered cups of coffee, tips about the city, helpful advice, and frequently their very lovely company at every turn. Paul was remarkably thoughtful as a host, for instance putting on the radiator when the weather took a cooler dip my first day there. This was my first airbnb experience and thanks largely to Paul and Emerson it was definitely a success!
Very nice place with clean rooms. Very nice Host and a very quiet neighborhood.
Très bel appartement, les chambres sont propres et confortables. Un excellent rapport qualité prix. Très bien situé. Comptez 15mn à pied pour être dans le centre de Dublin ou 5mn en bus max.
