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.

There are many places of interest in and around Dublin including many castles, museums, art galleries, stately homes, royal palaces, zoos, gardens and theme parks.

No pets allowed.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Margaret and Gordon made me very welcome in their home and were very hospitable throughout the week. They couldn't have been more friendly. The room was smaller than I had expected but it was clean and warm, and the bed was comfortable.

  • Margaret and Gordon are very friendly and easy to talk to. You feel welcome! And also the bed - at least mine, which is the only bed I can say something about - was very comfortable! Very important if you ask me.
    Also the house is located right between the airport and the city wich is perfect. Not far away from anything.
    I can recommend!

  • hola amics.

    Vaig estar tres dies dormint a la casa de Margaret. El llit és molt confortable, i la casa està neta i és (website hidden). Pensau que heu d'agafar el bus per arribar al centre de la ciutat a 20 minuts en bus que disposa d'una freqüència de cada 10 minuts. Ara bé, s'agraeix molt!!!! Dormir al centre de Dublin vol dir ficar-se en un lloc estressant i ple de turistes i estudiants llatinoamericans principalment, en canvi el barri de Margaret és 100 % Irlandés, tranquil i molt agradable.
    Molt bona avaluació!!!!

    I will be come back soon!!! Margaret and her husband are very friendly and lovely.

  • I had a great stay by margaret. She's very friendly and the position is good. 10-15 minutes to the airport and 10-15 minutes to the centre. Take the bus 16 to go to the shantalla avenue, from there It's only a few minutes to walk.
    The room size was ok, the bathroom and the shower is very good and the house is clean.
    Thanks margaret

  • A great stay in Dublin! The room is clean and warm, the bed is comfortable and Margaret and Gordon are very kind people!
    You can find everything that you may need near there: a supermarket, shopping, 3 or 4 pubs (with good prices), bus stops, grocery stores... It's 15 minutes by bus from airport, and 15 minutes from city center, very easy to access.
    Margaret and Gordon always want to help you giving directions, offering some ride (if they are going to the same direction) and tips to help during your stay there.
    It was my first time out of my country and I felt like I was in my home.
    Dublin is an awesome city, the people are very kind with foreigners, the streets and parks are clean and colorful, the entrances are not too expansive, the nightlife is great!

  • I had a great stay at Margaret's. She was really nice and offered great local tips. The bus is close by to get into the city center as well as to the airport. Her home is comfortable and quiet, so sleeping in isn't an issue at all.

  • 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!
