Our house, is a four bed roomed semi-detached which was totally refurbished in 2010. It is situated on Temple Hill which is a 2 minute walk from the hustle and bustle of Blackrock's fashionable village,offering a variety of trendy eateries, boutiques and gourmet food shops.. The bedroom is at the front of our house and has an ensuite with shower. There is a double bed with a double fronted wardrobe which has a tv with satellite stations, including Sky Sports. There is also a large study station with a very comfortable office chair. We also have wi-fi. The house is a bright, warm modernized home with the usual mod cons, including solar panels, so there is always plenty of hot water. We have a large modern kitchen come breakfast room which looks out on to our back garden.
Our home is within walking distance of Monkstown and Blackrock villages. We are a 3 minute walk from Seapoint DART Station - Train. We are very close to the sea (Seapoint) where you can enjoy the vista of Dublin Bay while walking along the sea front. Seapoint is also very popular for swimmers; there are regular cohorts of people who swim there all year round. Dun Laoghaire is within strolling distance of Blackrock village offering a variety of trendy eateries, boutiques and gourmet food shops. Several bus routes together with the N11 and DART provide efficient access to the city centre.
I have very recently stayed with the Denise and Lisa and all I can say is it was a "home from home" experience if not more.
They can't do enough for you, nothing was any trouble for them.
It was my first time in Ireland and Denise showed me around Blackrock, provided all the useful local information such as bus cards, shops, dart, nearby towns etc. Lisa is a very friendly, people person. She helped me with everything I could think of, all I did was asking. And then there is Dixie, a lovely Scottish Terrier. I love dogs so it was great to have him around but even if you are not too keen on dogs, this house is still very convenient since Dixie is a very quite dog and wouldn't get near you unless you wanted to play with him. I can't say enough for the family.
Beautiful family and so is their house. Very convenient location, minutes from the main street and DART stations (Blackrock and Seapoint), on bus route to Dublin centre.
House has a high BER rating, I never felt cold there. Spacious garden, spotless kitchen and bedroom. It is a newly decorated house with all MOD CONS.
The room is spacious with TV, desk and en-suite shower room, also spotless clean. Towels are provided, so pack another pair of shoes ladies instead of towels :)
As a conclusion I really enjoyed my stay and their company, I would recommend anyone coming to Blackrock to experience their hospitality. I would like to thank Denise, Lisa and Dixie for helping me have a great start in their lovely country. I'm going to be in Ireland for a year and I will definitely be seeing them through out the year as we are friends now.
Highly recommended, 10/10
