We offer a comfortable double bedroom, a bright kitchen and breakfast laid out for you in our eclectic arty home. Right next to the Guinness Hops store and ChristChurch, a quick 20 minutes walk will get you pretty much everywhere in the city centre.
We are Ayelet and Steve, a sculptor and a graphic designer. We've enjoyed travelling, and keep bringing things home with us. Our house is a labour of love and is filled with interesting artistic pieces (her) and some robocop and Alien figures (him).
We have a two bedroom, two storey house, with a small back yard and a green side garden, a real sun spot in summer. There is a shared shower and toilet downstairs, along with the sitting room and kitchen.
We are more than happy to help you find interesting places to go in Dublin, places to eat, activities, etc, including local spots that we love like the best place to get great selection of Irish beers, hear local bands, or a great brunch on the weekend.
Bedlinen and towels are included, as well as breakfast which includes cereal,toast, fruit and coffee. It is help yourself, but it will be laid out for you whenever you get up so you can take your time. Also included are free Wifi and heating, and shampoo, conditioner and shower-gel, so you can travel a little lighter.
When you are booking PLEASE make sure your profile includes a photo and some info about yourselves. We want to know a little about who is coming to staying in our home, and saves us having to ask for it later.
Cheers, and we look forward to meeting you......
Guests have access to the whole house with the exception of our bedroom.
Interaction with Guests
We want you to feel comfortable, but please remember this is our our house, and we'll be here too. We'll probably chat to you over breakfast at some stage, as well as when you arrive of course.
We like to meet our guests, and can help steer them towards places of interest in Dublin city, should you ask. We've compiled a list of places we like to go, markets, bars, restaurants, etc and a map for you to take away, as well as a selection of touristy things if you'd prefer. The Guinness Brewery is a few minutes walk away ( you can see the bar at the top from our kitchen), Christchurch and St.Patricks Cathedrals are about 20 minutes, and downtown bars and restaurants about 25 minutes walk. Everything is accessable and on your doorstep.
We live in a residential area so there are shops, a launderette, hairdresser and a pharmacy. A ten minute walk will get you to some good bars and cafes, and a 25 minute walk will get you into the city centre, bars, restaurants, music, etc, etc. Dublin is a small city so everything is very close and walkable.
The coast isn' t too far either, travelling to Dun-laoghaire or Howth on the Dart for walks or to indulge in the yummy Sunday food market are great ways to spend a sunny day. or with a car the Dublin and Wicklow Mountains are only 40 minutes away for hiking or sightseeing.
The bus stop is a minute away and all buses go into the city centre. The Luas (tram) stop is about 8 minutes away bringing you into the city centre as well as to the main train and bus stations, or the O2 music venue.
Other Things to Note
You will get your own house key so you can come and go as you please. There is a deposit for the keys, returnable when you leave.
Help yourself to tea and coffee whenever you want. There is also a hairdryer and iron available, just ask.
We are pretty flexible with check-in times, although if possible we try to keep Friday check-in after 4pm, and Monday before 11 am. You are more than welcome to store your bags during the day at either end though.
We look forward to meeting you.......
There is no smoking in the house, but feel free to go out the back yard to smoke, where there is also an outside light.
We're sorry but no additional guests are allowed back to the house.
A €50 deposit is required for the keys, which is given back when you return them.
Ayelet and Steve are very welcoming and super helpful. I´d definitely recommend staying with them. We loved their breakfast! From their lovely home its just a 15 min walk to the city.
Ayelet and Steve were excellent hosts! Even though our flight was delayed which meant we got in after midnight, Steve was still welcoming when we woke him up to enter. They provided a lovely breakfast and great conversation. When we told them that we were cold on the first night, they explained that it's because the heating was on a timer and the next night they had left us a hot water bottle in bed, changed the timer for the heating and left extra blankets on our bed! Really lovely couple and excellent hosts.
Ayelet and Steve are the perfect hosts! They were super accommodating to our check-in and check-out times and made us feel right at home. In addition to the delicious breakfast each morning, we had great conversation and loved the feel of their warm and beautiful home. If they weren't available to communicate face to face, they made sure to leave adorable notes telling us where the milk was or when they would be back, which we greatly appreciated. If we ever need a place to stay in Dublin again, Ayelet and Steve's artistic oasis will be our first choice. Thanks y'all!
PS the wifi is super fast!
This was the first time we had used this type of accommodation so were a little apprehensive, however we had no need to be. Steve and Ayelet were really welcoming, offering us help and information when we needed it and left us to do our own thing when we didn't.
I would fully recommend this stay, they have a beautiful house which is in keeping with cultural area.
Thanks guys, wish you well for the future!
We spent a really good time in Dublin also thank to Ayelet and Steve! They are lovely and cosy and give us a lots of suggestions. The flat is clean and so nice. Flavia and Cinzia. ;)
Ayelet made us feel very welcome and told us some great places to go and eat. The room was lovely and clean and the house very arty!
Ayelet and Steve made us feel very welcome in their home. We didn't spend a lot of time there (we were too busy exploring and eating at the places recommended to us by them both) but when we did they were both very friendly and the house was comfortable.
We got the tram on the first day but soon realised we were only a 20 minute walk from the city center and it's a nice stroll past St Patrick's Cathedral. I would recommend a stay with Ayelet and Steve.
Hi. We are Ayelet and Steve, a sculptor and a graphic designer. We enjoy living so close to the city centre, allowing us to walk or cycle everywhere. We enjoy traveling when we can, and always seem to bring something back with us. We've travelled to parts of Europe, Asia and Australia.
We're really enjoying the experience of meeting new people with Airbnb, and look forward to meeting new people.....When you contact us, please tell us a little something something about yourselves, we would really appreciate it.
