Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Really pleased! As my first visit to Dublin and also to AirBnB, things couldn't have been better.
    Margaret was an excellent host, always helpful and very friendly. The house is very nice, comfortable, nicely decorated.
    You can get to central Dublin in a 45 minute walk. Even walking at late hours (23'ish) didn't have any problems on the street.

    Response from Margaret:

    Thanks David kind of you to say as when you were here I was really let down by painters who started the bathroom then wandered off for nearly a week leaving all of their painting gear on the upstairs landing and have still not fully finished. (The bathroom mirror (which is large) is still in my bedroom......

  • Big clean room, nice bed! Interesting older house. Lovely host!

Rathmines is a quiet small town, with everything you need, just 20 minutes walking from Dublin city center! And Margaret is a very generous, nice and friendly host, always available to discuss and responding for your needs!
