About This Listing
A modern newly renovated house in a seaside suburb 15 minutes from the airport and 30 minutes from Dublin city.
My stay with Tracey was exactly what I needed - a homely environment where I felt relaxed and welcomed. Tracey took the time to sit and chat but also made me feel welcomed to come and go as I please, helping me out quite a few times with lifts to make it easier for me. She was very flexible in the comings and goings of myself first then when my husband joined me, and finally taking us to the airport at the crack of dawn! Many thanks Tracey.
Malahide is a very pretty village and a nice walk from Traceys along the estuary or an easy bus ride - lots of pubs in true Irish fashion and we caught some great live music. The bus ride to Dublin centre was also very pretty and took about 20/30 mins passing through quite a bit of delightful countryside which surprised me as we were so close to Dublin.
If you are looking for a stay with a friendly local in a quiet, pretty area out of the hubbub of the centre but close enough to get to the tourist sites easily then I highly recommend Tracey's place
we spent a really good week in tracey's house.
She was more than welcoming with us (we had such great talk and fun).
She has got a really peacefull and beautifull houses located in a nice part of malahide (close to malahide castle, malahide center).
There is a bus stop just at the end of the road witch can bring you to the town and to the airport.
Tracey can give you good advices and places to visit.
I definitely recommand you to stay there.
We enjoyed our stay with Tracey very much. After all of the places we stayed on our trip, I asked my girls what their favorite place was to stay during our trip to England and Ireland. They both agreed that Tracey's was the best accommodation. Tracey was very gracias and her home very comfortable. She was very helpful with transportation information and suggesting local attractions.
GREATEST HOST EVER! 5 STARS! Not only was Tracey friendly, extremely knowledgeable and kept a great home, but she is exactly the kind of person you want waiting for you in your home-away-from-home. Her house is located in a quiet and charming village just 20 minutes from Dublin, and you'll definitely want to check out the local Malahide Castle if you have time. It's also 10 minutes from the Dublin Airport, which was great as we stayed with Tracey on our last night in Ireland.
Tracey was SUPER welcoming and immediately sparked up great conversations with us that seemed like they would go on for DAYS! She's lived a hugely interesting life and knows just about everything about Ireland, sailing, and lots more. She even invited us to join her for dinner (vegetarian gluten-free pasta and sauce - even our resident carnivore liked it!) and went out of her way to make us a customized breakfast. Crumpets were had!
The room was comfy, clean and very purple. It's perfect for a traveling couple or solo traveler, plenty of space and power outlets and parking included!
We loved loved loved our stay here. Tell Tracey we said hi!
About the Host, Tracey
I'm a sailor with a passion for adventure. I spent 10 years as a seaborne gypsy crossing oceans and exploring the world on my 40ft sail and wind powered floating home. This house doesn't float, to my knowledge, and has all sorts of wonderful things that I've ceased to take for granted, unlimited running hot water, wifi, an ice filled freezer, TV!, a garden, and far too many rooms for one person.
