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.
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.
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.
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
Relax & enjoy my home.
My daughter stayed at Monicas place with a friend and they were satisfied and liked the room and also the host. They would recommend it to everyone.
Monica was very welcoming and hospitable. The neighborhood was lovely -- quiet and quaint. She was very helpful giving us directions and restaurant advice and provided tea and toast for us in the morning. We enjoyed our stay very much!
Ein sehr nettes Haus, sehr praktisch und nahe zum Flughafen gelegen. Monica ist sehr freundlich und man kann gut mit ihr reden. Wir können die Unterkunft empfehlen!
After a late trip and arriving from about 38 degree of this very hot summer we arrived here. The room si cozy and perfect for sleeping in quiet, the kitchen full of everything You May need as a mindnight snack or a proper breakfast. The bath cab offer You a good suggestions of what to buy at Boots it You are a beauty Addict as i am. Wi-Fi was great. Sleeping was very restoring and at 5 minutes taxi from Airport
Monica's home is a good place to stay for a sleep if you want to go to the airport early, by car or taxi, like us.
Monica made us feel right at home! She was very flexible with our schedule, and was helpful with our "things to do in Ireland" questions. Thanks for the relaxing atmosphere and entertaining conversations!
Monica was a very nice host, she even helped us to get suitable tickets and caught up the bus for us ! The room we had was very quiet so we slept well. Thanks again, Monica! ;)

About the Host, Monica
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.
