Hi, I'm Jenny. I'm a thirty something professional working in the NGO sector. A Dublin native, I'm originally from Howth but I've been living in Clontarf for the 10 years. I love the idea of Airbnb as a unique way of seeing new places and also of meeting new interesting people by welcoming them into my home.

I'm renting a spacious double room in my large two bedroom apartment. The room has a double bed and lots of storage space, including a fitted wardrobe. There is also a television, alarm clock, hair dryer, an extension lead and plug adaptors (European and American) for any electrical items which guests might bring.

Interaction with Guests

There is a bus stop directly outside the main gates of the apartment with buses that will take you both north and south of Dublin City. It's only a 10 minute bus trip to Dublin city centre itself.

It is also a short walk to Clontarf Road Dart (train) Station which will also take you both north and south of the city.

The Neighborhood

The area of Clontarf is a lovely safe suburb located on the coast just 10 minutes north of Dublin city center. Its location with great restaurants, shops, pubs, coffee shops make it an ideal place to stay on your trip to Dublin.

The renowned Bull Island beach and bird sanctuary is great for swimming, kite surfing, jogging, dog walking and only 15 minutes down the (website hidden) Anne’s Park, Fairview Park and local village shops are all within 5 - 10 mins walk from the apartment.

Three great bars (world famous Harry Byrnes, The Yacht and Wrights) and an award winning restaurant (Downstairs) are two minutes walk away from the apartment. It is just a 5 min walk to the promenade by the sea which is great for joggers and walkers with views all along the sea front.

Clontarf also has a rugby club, cricket club, tennis courts, golf courses (one inland club - Clontarf and two links courses - Royal Dublin and St. Anne's), a GAA club, and a sailing club.

The beautiful scenic fishing villages of Howth and Malahide which are both packed with fantastic restaurants and bars can be reached easily from Clontarf by bus or train. As are the theatres: The Abbey, The Gate, Project Arts Centre, The Olympia, The O2, Grand Canal.

  • Jenny was so great and accommodating! The place was great and the room is even better in person. Everything was comfortable and the private bathroom was great too. Jenny was really sweet and gave you privacy when you needed but was really warm and welcoming at the same time.
    There is a bus stop right outside of their place so it's easy to get to the center. Also the there is a short walk to the bay and a great stretch of different places to grab a quick bite by the water. Highly recommended :)

  • Jenny and Pete were very pleasant hosts. They were both very welcoming and open with their apartment as well as quite flexible with the arrival time. The accommodations were exactly as listed and everything I needed for my stay was provided. The neighborhood was also nice with plenty of bus stops within a 10 minute walk and a nice village not much further. I would definitely recommend anyone stay with Jenny and Pete for their visit to Dublin!

  • Jenny had all the arrival information and directions well organized so that navigating the city to her place was easy and stress free. She was gracious, accommodating and made us very welcome. The quiet location was a refuge for us and we enjoyed our stay even with falling sick while there. Jenny's descriptions of distances to city centre, neighborhood pubs and restaurants are all accurate. I would stay with her again in a second.

  • Jenny was a great host, very prompt with her responses and always there if you need anything. The room was great with a really comfy bed. Also we had, wi-fi and TV for when we were at the flat. Towels, robes and toiletries were at our disposal and also we had a bathroom and toilet to ourselves. The neighbourhood was quiet and safe, right next to a bus station and a great pub and also in close distance to the train station that takes you to town. There were also restaurants and shops, as well as, a great walking space along the canal nearby. We had a great time and enjoyed our holiday in Dublin to the fullest!
