Good place to start, if you come to work with
ebay, paypal, IBM, symantic, Xerox ...
I was was staying at Kerstin's former house when I came to work in Dublin, the new one is even better located for Xerox, Paypal, symantec, IBM in Ballycoolin business park - ebay is just around the corner. There is a hospital 200 meters away, which gives you a kind of secure feeling, just in case ... Blanch is a little bit outside, but the bus connection, even nitebus, is very good. The train doesn't go too often, but when you check with the timetable it's very convenient.
Kerstin's place is in tidy and need condition, don't expect this everywhere in Ireland, it's far better than every hostel. Kerstin is very helpful and since she is arround for a long time, she would know almost everything, places to go, where to buy stuff and ... and ...and.
I spent a great time and can honestly recommend to stay at her place.
