Hi let us be your hosts,
My house offers four luxury bedrooms for a short or long term stay for visitors to Dublin's fair city.
The house is over three floors and very spacious, modern and clean in a quiet neighbourhood only 5 minutes from Dublin Airport, 20 minutes to the city centre by local bus or train.
Accommodation will include breakfast- Selection of cereal, eggs, toast, bagels, cheese, jams, tea ,coffee and orange juice..
A selection of herbal teas, tea and coffee are always available 24 hours..
Airport pickup and drop off can usually be organised for a small fee of €5 each way for 4 people.
Once you are settled in, a few minutes by car brings you to the vibrant village of Malahide which boasts a lovely 12th century castle set on 250 acres of park land, there are over 25 restaurants to choose from in this award winning pretty seaside town along with traditional Irish pubs with live music. Ladies boutiques, a yachting marina and the beach are also a big feature in Malahide village.
A further five minutes along the coast is Portmarnock beach, nicknamed The Velvet Strand due to the beautiful smooth sand along the beach, and is popular with wind and kite surfers.
The local double decker bus is a 20 minute ride to the heart of Dublin city centre and costs €2.80. Here you can visit all your planned attractions whether it be Temple Bar, The Guinness factory, Dublin Castle or just take a stroll around the citys streets and listen to the street buskers crooning.
This house has a unique destination as it offers you everything you need on your visit to Dublin within a short distance and if you want more than just a city break then there are plenty of fishing villages scattered around.
The M1 motorway is only a stones throw away and offers a direct access to everywhere in Ireland North ,South, East and West.
So if it is a short break for you in Dublin, an airport layover or just a place to sleep for an night before you go touring you can rest assured that we will pull out all of the stops to make sure that your stay in my home is a pleasant and memorable experience for you and yours.
My house is a great launching pad if you are travelling Ireland for your first night before touring the country and your last night before departure..

Des & Sinead
Everything the house has to offer..
We are always here to serve your needs!
Our stay with Des and Sinead went above and beyond our expectations! Des and Sinead are extremely warm and welcoming, going so far as to drive us in to the nearby coastal town of Malahide for our last night in Ireland so we would save money on cab fare and be afforded the opportunity to enjoy ourselves. Breakfast was delicious, the rooms and bathroom were clean and spacious, and they literally are located just minutes away from the airport (but far enough away so that there is no noise issues.) We would definitely recommend staying with Des and Sinead for all trips to, from, and around the Dublin area, and would stay again.
Des & Sinead exceeded all expectations! They both went over and above to welcome and accomodate our family of 5. They helped us feel at home in their very comfortable accomodation and took care of us like family. Warm, welcoming, friendly, genuine & helpful..delicious home-cooked breakfasts..everything was exceptional..I could go on & on! We highly recommend booking with Des & Sinead, feel truly blessed to have met them! :)
Des & Sinead are the best host ever. Me and my 2 friends stayed with Des and Sinead for 3 days and 2 nights but it feels like we were there our entire life coz They made us feel very welcome, as if we are home. They have exceeded our expectation. We travel almost every month and we can say that even 5 star hotels are not even close to their dedication and passion of helping each of their guests to the best of their resources and knowledge. "SERVICE STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART".
If you are looking for a place to stay, we highly recommend their services. It may be a long or short trip, Des and Sinead are the best host to be.
There aren't enough kind words to say about Des & Sinead! They are truly an incredible duo. The three of us (my fiancé, brother and myself) had clean and comfortable rooms with fresh bedding and limitless amenities for the 3.5 days that we stayed with them. Their home, which is not far from the Dublin center (by bus or train) is made to feel like your own. Every morning we woke up to yummy breakfast and Irish music. We had rented a car for the entirety of our trip and always had a safe place to park it (we wouldn't of had that option if we were right inside of Dublin center). I even got engaged in Ireland! We couldn't wait to get home to tell Des & Sinead because we knew how excited they would be. Honestly, it was our favorite part about our Euro trip because Des & Sinead made Ireland accessible to us. We will always remember our trip to Ireland and we will always remember Des & Sinead!!!!!!!
Beautiful, warm and clean house in a perfect location for getting to the airport and exploring Dublin from. Friendly management who are very helpful. I have stayed in a few B&Bs around Dubin and based on comfort and location this is by far the best. I would highly recommend and will definitely be staying again.
Des & Sinead were my first airbnb hosts, and i'm afraid it's all downhill from here. I'm not sure i've ever experienced as much hospitality in such a short span. Sinead promptly picked me up from the airport and no sooner did i walk in the door than i felt at home. Des and Sinead almost trip over each other making sure you're comfortable, well fed, and entertained. We watched rugby and the Mighty Boosh (my first time for each), played with Timmy and Coney (good guys both), Sinead was so kind as to make a fishNchip-run for me, and the conversation stayed engrossing into the wee hours, at which point i was all but carried to my bed. And, as if to give the evening a fairy-tale ending, i had Coney curl up at my feet for the night.
The next morning i was rushing to catch a bus, so i didn't have time for breakfast (though i did see that my place at the table was set for me) but sinead quickly supplied me with a cup of coffee to go, made sure i had bus fare, a copy of the schedule, and a map of dublin, and graciously drove me to the bus stop.
I thought i was just getting a clean, spacious, reasonably priced room for a night, but, --and the airbnb review page may not be the place for such sentimentalities-- but what i got was so much more; i got 3 new friends... (i have no problem with timmy per se, we just never clicked).
If i were to return to the Dublin area, i'd stay again with Des and Sinead.
You can't get any better that Des and Sinead. Incredible hospitality. Even though I was only there for about 16 hours, Sinead went out of her way to be accommodating, picking me up at the airport, and taking me to get takeout for dinner. The house is lovely and the room was huge, with a comfortable bed and good shower, and coffee and breakfast in the morning. If you need a place to stay near the airport, or if you're in Dublin and just want to stay with some wonderful people, this is your best bet. I can't thank them enough!
Des & Sinead are the BEST hosts in the world. They are so helpful, warm, welcoming, and will bend over backwards to help you in anyway they can. Seriously, I felt super taken care of. It was a nice change as I was feeling a little frazzled after so much travel!
The breakfast was so filling and they always had so much food. Their house is very comfy and the room was comfortable as well. The location is really convenient to the bus so I could go into Dublin easily.
Really, I think Des & Sinead MAKE this BnB experience. They are just so accommodating and the best people in this world. Hearts of gold they have!
Me, my girlfriend and a friend of mine stayed one night at Des and Sinead's house. If you are looking for welcoming people, cute little dogs to stroke and a perfectly maintained and clean house : their house is the one you need to go for! We loved every minute spent there. Des and Sinead are such great host! They even cooked us a nice breakfast before we left and made sure we knew where we were going and what we should see in Dublin. They did everything to make us feel at eased in their house and it worked ! We highly recommend them to you.
I only stayed one night - well, a few hours - at Des'&Sinead's, but it was really a lovely time. Sinead gave me directions on the phone and picked me up, when I got lost while trying to find a "short cut". Then I had a nice warm welcome by Des and the two dogs and a nice warm cup of tea. Would have liked to sit and chat for longer, but had to prepare for the departure in the morning.
Even on this short stay I felt a bit at home. The house has really nicely decorated interior and everything is neat and clean.
A great plus is the 5 min. driving distance to the airport - but I didn't hear any noise at night though. Hopefully next time I get the chance to visit Malahide and the surrounding area. Thanks again for being great hosts.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
