Hi, I'm Jenny. I'm a thirty something professional working in the NGO sector. A Dublin native (originally from Howth but living in Clontarf for 10 years) I love the idea of Airbnb as a unique way of seeing new places also of meeting new interesting people.
I'm renting my apartment with a spacious double room for up to two people. 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.
Guests will have solo use of the main large private bathroom complete with toilet, basin, bath/shower. Clean linen, towels (body/hair) and toiletries (shampoo/conditioner/bodywash/soap/toothpaste) will be provided for your stay.
The apartment also has:
- Cable TV
- DVD player
- Apple TV & Netflix account
- fast wireless internet
- use of MacBook Air laptop when free
- underfloor and ceiling central heating
- large comfy living room with two large couches
- fully equipped kitchen (oven/grill/hobs, microwave,
fridge/freezer, dishwasher etc)
- utility room (clothes washing machine, clothes dryer,
ironing board & iron)
- patio, hall and apartment alarm.
All of which you have access to as a guest!
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 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.
I look forward to welcoming guests into my home and can offer advice on lots of greats things to do in Dublin. If there is anything else you would like to know in advance please just ask me!
Jennys apartment is amazing!
Everything was clean and the manual was very detailed and helpful.
We definitely recommend this apartment to everyone who wants to visit Dublin.
Jenny was a great hostess! She was away during our stay and organised for the apartment keys to be dropped off with friends before.
The apartment is lovely - clean and stylish with every mod con you could hope for. Its a short bus or taxi ride from Dublin town.
I would definitely stay with Jenny again and hope to do so soon!
I didn't get to meet Jenny because she was out of town, but the apartment was great and she left very detailed instructions to navigate the building and parking area. She included a manual on appliances in the apartment and a listing of local sights and restaurants. Good sized room with nice bathroom and modern appliances. The apartment was convenient to downtown Dublin as well as the airport. I would highly recommend a stay in Jenny's apartment!
