The Space

Nice comfortable house 20 minutes from the City centre. Single bedroom with wardrobe, chest of drawers. The bathroom with electric power shower will be shared with others. You are welcome to use the rest of the house, including the front and back garden. I have cable TV and Wifi. Parking is also available.

The area is very nice and quiet. There is a a nice pub across the road from us that has traditional Irish music Wednesdays and Saturdays.
There is also a large supermarket and some good restaurants nearby.

I am located near the Dublin City University, 20 minutes from the O2 arena, 20 mins the Croke Park DCU and 15 minutes to the airport.

Bus wise the 16A from the airport will take you to the end of my road. And there are plenty of buses into the Dublin centre which take about 20 minutes.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I had a grat week at Margarets house. I decided to book in her house because of the reviews I read from her and let me tell you that its all true. For starters the house is located in a very nice area close to the airport and city center. The room is nice and comfy. Any questions about transportation, places to go or any other thing Margaret and her husband Gordon would help you anytime. I really enjoy the week and the lovely company. They make you feel like home whenever youre far from home. Thank you very much!!!!! Best hosts!

  • Margaret and her husband are great hosts. Very polite, clean and helpful. The room size is OK and the transport is nearby. Definitely recommending this one.

  • Margaret and her husband Gordon are lovely people. Although the Shantalla Centra bus stop on the #16 airport bus is only a few minutes walk from Margaret's place, she took the time and picked me up in her car as I walked there. She also did my wash and invited me to Sunday dinner. The room is small, but bright with a big window, and has a comfortable bed. She includes a breakfast--cereal and toast, tea and coffee--too. I really enjoyed my two days there. I recommend it highly.

    thanks paul

  • I had an absolutely lovely time staying with Margaret! Her family took such great care of me. Her home is in a quiet neighborhood about halfway between the airport and downtown. Getting to either was super easy via bus. There's a supermarket across the street, so I was able to pick up whatever I needed without any trouble. I had a wonderful trip, and will certainly visit again when I'm coming back through Dublin.

    Response from Margaret:

    thanks rose glad u enjoyed ur stay see u in april

  • it was wonderful experience to enjoy the warm hospitality of Margaret and Gordon , so willing to make you feel at home very fast . the house is nice , strategically located 20 minute from the center from Dublin, public transport works properly even during bank holiday time. Room is cosy and quiet just perfect for releasing from the stress after hard work. I could enjoy the garden beside the season , I cannot imagine how beautiful has to be in summer chilling out with a glass of wine . But again the golden part of this house are them : 2 persons just so easy going and in love for life and people, surely a place to recommend to everyone and no question : looking forward to be back again .
