The Space

A lovely bright clean single room, in a friendly Dublin house. This room would suit somebody looking for either a short term or long term let. The house is a 1930's period property and would be fairly typical of the type of house that a lot of Irish people live in. I work from home a lot, so will be here to help you out with any questions you might have. You will have total freedom of the house, and will have a front door key so you can come and go as you want, and when you are not out exploring the city you are welcome to use the kitchen to cook in, or the sitting room to curl up by the open fire, with our old dog and slightly mad cat, and a good book, or watch some telly or avail of the Wifi. If the weather is good you can sit out in the very private garden and even have a BBQ if you like. Located about 4 km from the city centre, in a quiet residential area, which has a late night Supermarket, Post Office, Chemist, and Parks on the doorstep, and a selection of Pubs and Restaurants about 15 mins away. Or if you want to pop in to the city the bus stops at the end of our little cul de sac and will have your there in about 25 mins. The room itself is really nice , it has lots of little extras like a kettle , tea, coffee and biscuits if you fancy a late night smack , maps of the area so you won't get lost , practical things like an electric blanket to keep you cosy, towels and extra bedding . Breakfast is included in the price , I provide a selection of items i.e. brown bread, eggs, yogurt, honey, cheese, butter ,tea, coffee, fruit, etc and you are welcome to cook it at anytime that suits you . I am happy to do either short term or long term just let me know what suits. ....Just to let you know my house is a normal Dublin house, it is not a hotel or hostel, but I do try really hard to help you feel at home here, and to give you as much info as you need to get about Dublin and Ireland if you want to go further, So I look forward to your visit ...And really you will not get better value anywhere else ...GREAT VALUE !!!!

  • I loved staying at Barbara's. Unfortunately I've been sick most part of my Dublin trip, so I couldn't enjoy the city too much. Fortunately I was staying at Barbara's and I find peace to rest and recover.
    Barbara is a beautiful person and her house is really warm!

  • My time in Dublin was very short (less than 48 hours) but staying at Barbara's home was the best choice! Very friendly person and peaceful atmosphere. The house was nothing but GREAT and the room was clean and cozy. Kitchen fully equipped not only for a tea but also for breakfast and dinner. No Photoshop or any "marketing trick" as what you see in pictures is what you get in real life including the room. Well connected with city bus. Barbara made all arrangements to hire a taxi for my business meeting early morning. Gave me great tips for short visit to Dublin as well as airport transportation by bus. Weather did not allowed me to enjoy garden but staying inside was very nice.

  • Staying with Barbara while in Dublin was a GREAT choice! Her house was one of the cutest, most quaint houses I've ever stayed in - absolutely fell in love with it!
    Barbara really offers a great "B&B" experience by providing not only a clean house, but a "fully-stocked" room & kitchen, breakfast items, and a friendly environment.
    She is a great host, and was so nice about offering me tips for enjoying my time in the city, and helping me get where I needed to go.

  • I spent 3 nights with Barbara. The room was clean and very cozy. I was staying in Dublin to visit friends who are from there. She invited them into her home and even made us tea with scones. Not only was she lovely the moment I met her, but when my converter wouldn't work, she went out and got the right one. I would definitely stay with her again. She was a delight and I am glad that I chose to stay with her!

Hi I'm Barbara, and I am a great fan of AIRBNB , I first used it myself to find accommodation in Brooklyn a while ago, and it was such a good experience I decided to become a host, and now I am a total convert. I have been letting out a room on either a long or short term basis for many years , but just love the Airbnb way of doing things. My favorite things are travel and anything art/design/craft related, My background is as a theatre designer, but these days I run a small home based business making hand made craft kits for kids,.........Planet Purple Kids.........I love meeting new people from different parts of the world, and would like you to feel at home here. ....If you are new to airbnb and maybe a bit nervous, go on try it , really it is so much better than any standard bnb or hostel
