About this listing
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.
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.
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(BE SURE TO HAVE CHANGE AS IT'S EXACT FARE) or you can buy 'Leap Card' which can be used on buses & trains in Dublin area. The taxi service is quicker but obviously more expensive. I book cabs/taxis from my local office 10eu to Airport at any time 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.
SOMETIMES PEOPLE GETTING A TAXI FROM THE AIRPORT FIND THE DRIVERS CAN'T FIND MY HOUSE !! ?? I LIVE AROUND THE CORNER FROM THE CHURCH & THE PRIMARY SCHOOL.
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 2015
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 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.
