About this listing
The house is a terraced red-brick period house which is located in a relatively quiet
village, which is only a short bus journey, or gentle walk, from the hustle and bustle of the city center.
The village itself has all the necessary amenities including banks, pharmacies,restaurants, cafes,supermarket and most importantly a fine selection of pubs. The buses run very frequently and the stops are only a short walk away.
There are two rooms available. The first, with a queen sized bed and adjoining private bathroom and shower, overlooks a junior school's playground. The second room is a smaller room single bed, and is facing the street in view of the opposite side of the street, perfect for anyone who appreciates Dublin's take on Georgian architecture.

of the residents are experienced travellers and will do their best to help you and make you stay enjoyable and informative but also will give you your private space.

Raquel은 진심으로 사람에대해 배려할줄아는 멋쟁이입니다. 그만큼 집도 멋지게 가꾸며 손님을 맞이하더군요. 내가 사용했던 방은 그집손님방 중에서 가장좋은 방이라고 생각됩니다. 화장실이 딸려있어서 공용화장실을 사용하는 다른방보다 훨씬 편하고 경치가 아주 좋았습니다.
시내에서 가깝고 조용한동네입니다.
다시 머물고싶은 아늑한 방이었습니다. Raquel 에게 감사합니다.
Raquel was such a welcoming and helpful host throughout my stay, as was her son Niall - always around for a chat or to offer useful advice when needed and let me treat the house as if it were my own. The room and house itself are just as lovely as they look in the pictures - full of character and a great place to stay. Rathgar as an area is very nice and although it is a short distance out of the city centre, it is well connected by public transport with regular busses to most places you'd need to go. In all, a very highly recommended house and host.
Raquel is the most gracious and caring person, and most hospitable and sophisticated host, that I have ever had the pleasure to stay with!! The description of her place being a "home away from home" couldn't have been more accurate. She made me feel totally at ease my entire stay at her beautiful home. It is just as described on her Airbnb page. (In fact, when I mentioned to another host, I stayed with in Swords, where I was staying in Rathgar he said: "Danny, That's where the millionaires live!") However, Raquel was not a "diva"... she was unfailingly kind! She went "above and beyond the call of duty"- printing boarding passes & travel directions; giving me valuable advice on what was worth seeing and what wasn't on my short visit; places that were potentially dangerous; she was spot on with all her sage advice.) She made my trip totally memorable instead of a disaster! If I had not stayed with her it would not have been nearly so enjoyable- she was like a "surrogate mom"! (She has two sons and I felt like an "honorary' third son. My mom wants to give her a "big hug" for all the things big and little she did for me. For example, Raquel knew I was traveling on a tight budget. She has traveled widely and shared some great tips on how I could stretch my travel dollar.)
Did I mention she is a great cook! Her full Irish breakfast was delicious. In fact, it was far tastier than the ones I had at restaurants later in my trip. The Irish bread she served was so good!
Her location is very convenient and lovely. (She could charge far more for her rooms but she isn't in for the money. She is a "people person"!) I could go on with many more examples but I am almost out of words.
On my next trip to Ireland, if Raquel would permit me, I would love to stay at her home again. ( I still have a few more sites to see that she had recommended.)
I would, without hesitation or reservation, recommend any of my family & friends & classmates stay at her lovely home when visiting Ireland! She is phenomenal- intelligent, compassionate, considerate- the perfect host!!!!
Thank you for your very kind review. You are a very special beautiful person and indeed it was as if you were my own son. I’m delighted that you enjoyed your stay so much. I hope that we see you again when you visit Ireland. In the meantime, I would like to wish you the very best.
I had a wonderful stay in Raquels home ! It really is a home away from home ! Raquel went out of her way to make me feel welcome and was incredibly understanding when I arrived almost an hour late. Not to mention the gorgeous breakfasts and spot on recommendations of sights to see in Dublin and Ireland. I could not have found a better place to stay for my first visit to Ireland.
I had a great time time at Racquel's house. It is located on a quiet street of the Dublin suburbs so you won't be woken up by traffic in the morning. It is also only a very short walk from public transport and shops and restaurants. I was in Dublin for a tennis tournament and Racquel was very friendly and helpful telling me the best way to get from the airport to her house and allowing me to ride her son's bike to the tennis venue everyday. The house was very clean and tidy and I definitely recommend staying there if you go to Dublin.
