The Space

It is a double room available downstairs with a bathroom adjacent to it. The bathroom includes a whirlpool bath, a nice way to relax after a busy day or a long flight. The room is nice and cozy in the winter.

On arrival at the airport you can ring for a cab - (phone number hidden) - it costs 10 eu. It's cheaper than the airport cabs, ring straight away as they come from Swords.

Visitors can check-in at any time - within reason - come directly from the Airport. You can enjoy tea/coffee, have a nice hot shower and a rest, Particularly after a long-haul flight just to re-charge the batteries !! We are not located in the airport flight path, so no noisy planes to keep you awake.

For larger bookings, please note that we also have an upstairs double bedroom (fits up to 3 people) with en-suite adjoining, which is only used by guests ( There is also a bathroom downstairs, which includes a whirlpool bath, lovely way to relax after a long flight.).

Just a few mins.walk to bus stop (3704) or 15 min walk (or bus) to Swords where there is lots of great restaurants, pubs etc., which also serve good food at reasonable prices, great shopping centre .- Pavillion Shopping Centre - where there are shops selling beautiful Irish gifts to take home, or you can get 'cheap n cheerful' souviners etc., also. ( (website hidden)- Pavillion Shopping Centre)

There is a very good bus service to Dublin city where there are so many tourist attractions...too numerous to mention The regular bus service takes 30-40 mins. to the city centre or an express service which takes 20 mins. The bus stop (3704) is 3 mins from my home.

We live a short distance from beautiful beaches & parks. 10 mins drive from here takes you into the countryside. The renowned NEWGRANGE Heritage Site is 30 mins drive from here. you can access it by taking the country roads with lovely countryside to enjoy. Get a taste of the 'real' Ireland.

Also, the Airport is 15 min bus journey with buses running frequently, or taxi service which is even quicker. I book cabs/taxis from my local office 10eu to Airport ,at any time of day or night. I occasionally drop people to the Airport, if they have small children or if people are experiencing difficultes re: car hire etc.

Also, there is parking space outside house for anyone wishing to avail of it. Anyone wishing to stay will be made feel very welcome, looking forward to meeting many new people in 2014

  • Monicas home was beautiful and located in a very nice, quiet suburb within walking distance to everything in swords. Very conveniently located close to the airport and about a 30 minute trip to the center of Dublin. Monica was extremely helpful with suggestions on where to eat and things to do. I definitely recommend staying here if you get a chance.. Thanks Monica!

  • I needed a place last minute, and Monica was very responsive to my messages. She was very helpful with everything.

    Her house is clean and in a nice location. It's a little ways out from Dublin city, but it's easy enough to get there using the bus system. There is a stop right by her house. She's really close to the airport. It made catching my flight back home super easy!

    I would definitely recommend Monica as a host and would stay with her again.

  • My husband and I arrived in Monicas place in midnight,she was so nice and welcome us with her guest from Berlin and say hello. We had a great connection instantly like a real family. She really help us out make us feel home. The private room with our own bath was amazing. Everyday Steve's cook. One night we had a romantic dinner with fresh flower and candle lights and took photo to send to our son in Hawaii. In the last night we had a big party with Monica's family and friends outside her garden with fireplace.

    Mahalo for great memories that we will treasures for the rest of our lives.

About
I am friendly & easy-going and enjoy meeting people from different backgrounds. When on holidays I enjoy meeting and chatting with the locals, I find that the best way to learn about a new place. I only started Hosting in March '13 but have met so many great & interesting people. I have had cards, e-mails and even a gift posted to me from a lovely lady from Florida who stayed with her family, in the Summer. I will enjoy a quiet Christmas at home with my family this year. No plans as yet, for holidays. Hopefully a little Winter Sunshine may be on the cards for early in the New Year. I love reading and my other pastime is gardening. I enjoy swimming to keep fit, unfortunately I do not go as often as I should ! I'm looking forward to meeting lots of new people in 2014.
