Beautiful home on River Dodder, prefect for a family vacation in Ireland. Kid friendly with rockers, cribs, playmats etc. if needed. Great location, close to the city (20 min cycle / 15 min bus) but with easy access to the beach, mountains and main motorways to all other Irish cities. Stylish, peaceful & easily accessible!
The house is just over 1700 square feet, around 160 square meters. It has a very large, open plan living room, dinning room and kitchen, prefect for your family to relax in and make yourselves at home.
There's also another living room downstairs with open fireplace and a home office setup (with WiFi throughout the house) that you can use if you want some time to yourself.
The garden is large, south-facing and tranquil. It's a great place to sit and enjoy the sun, read a book or enjoy a drink or two. We have apple and plum trees and grow strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, gooseberries and rhubarb so you're welcome to pick from the garden and bake a nice crumble if you want.
The front of the house looks out over the river Dodder and a bank of trees which stretch the length of the road on the far side of the river. At each end of the road are large parks with beautiful walks, Bushy park in particular has great amenities with tennis courts, football pitches, woodlands and lakes. If you want to borrow tennis rackets for a game that's no problem.
Again at either end of the road are bus routes that take you straight into town or indeed to the airport. Taking a bus to the city centre outside of rush hour takes around 20 minutes (up to 45 in rush hour). It would take between 40 mins to 1 hour to walk. For cyclists Dublin city centre is a 15 - 20 minute cycle away, the Dublin mountains are around a 40 minute cycle or you could head east to Sandymount beach in around 15 minutes.
If you're driving there's great access out to the M50 and on to all the main motorway routes and we have off street parking for three cars.
Dundrum shopping centre (Europe's largest) is close by too, 15 mins by bike or 10 mins by bus.
We'll have hair dryers and fresh towels and linen ready for when you arrive. You can also use the washer, iron, cooker etc. so you can travel light and not stress about the little things.
One firm rule is to please smoke outside.

Easy going, friendly couple in our mid 30s. We both work full-time though Diana is currently on maternity leave with our little girl. We love trying new foods and wines and love to travel and meet new people. We both like hiking and swimming. We're often out at the weekends but love cooking and socialising with guests on weeknights. I was born and raised in Dublin and my wife knows it well so we'll be able to help you plan a great break away in Dublin!
