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.
Me and my sister stayed with Monica for two nights while visiting Dublin. It was just what we needed, a comfortable room with a lovely bed. Monica made us feel really welcome and it felt more like staying with friends than a stranger.
The bus is just round the corner from the house and takes about 20 mins into Dublin. Not really a big deal as the buses are often and run late into the night.
Swords town centre is about 15 minutes walk away and had lots of different places to eat and bars.
Would definitely stay again if returning to Dublin.
We only had a 2 night stay at Dublin but were very comfortable at Monica's place. Although the ground floor room was quite small, Monica offered us the slightly larger room upstairs for the 2nd night since there was a cancellation. Monica is a no non-sense person and lets you do your stuff around the house without any interference. We had a pleasant stay at Monica's
Monica ist eine aufmerksame und hilfsbereite Gastgeberin. Der herzliche Empfang mit Tee und Keksen war klasse, die Lage der Unterkunft ist ebenfalls sehr gut, nur wenige Minuten zur nächsten Bushaltestelle. Trotz Flughafennähe sehr ruhig.
Great stay. Room was as described, very close to the airport ans Monica was very helpful. Will definitely stay here again on my next Dublin layover.
Monica's home was the perfect pit stop on our 3 week European journey. So close to the airport and a short walk to downtown swords where we enjoyed the best fish and chips we've ever had! (The old schoolhouse bar and grill) Monica was very helpful and a wonderful host. I highly recommend you stay here!
This is listing is as expected. Clean, accommodating, no frills.

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.
