Interaction with Guests
Julien and I work full-time but we do encourage our guests to interact with us when available so we can direct them in the right direction for the perfect Dublin break
Rathmines has the village feel within a large city. It has plenty of shops, supermarkets, restaurants, cinemas, bars, leisure centres and swimming pool all at your door step. With some of the best trad sessions in Dublin available in the local pubs, some might say it’s the true Dublin untainted by the tourist traps.
Getting around Rathmines couldn’t be easier! Everything is on the one straight street which leads back into Dublin city centre. There are numerous bus routes that go through Rathmines which operate from 7am till 11.30. They pass by every 5 to 10 min to Temple Bar and city centre area. If you choose to get a taxi, they are available 1 minute away from the house.
There is street parking available but it is metered during day time.
We do not allow smoking in the bedroom, but if you wish to use the living room that’s fine. Sorry no pets, and just treat our home with respect.
Relax and enjoy!
La chambre était parfaite , propre et très agréable ! Julien et John étaient aux petits soins pour nous. Je le conseil très vivement !
John and julien were both great hosts! They gave us some tips for our visits in dublin and recommended us this cool funky pub only a few minutes away from their flat. Our room was very clean and tea, water and a chocolate were ready when we entered our room. Altough john had to work the day we arrived, we met him in the city center where he gave us the key to the flat without any problems.
Thank you very much for this amazing stay!
John and julien were at home when we arrived, we had been given all the instructions to access the flat easily, they were very welcoming and made us feel at ease. The flat is very well situated, near a lively road with food shops and restaurants. The city centre is very near, only a few stops on the bus, even walkable (40 mn to Grafton Street). The flat is very functional, quiet and nicely decorated. The bedroom has plenty of available storage for clothes, the bed very comfortable. Breakfast choice was perfect, cereals, bread, fruits, juice, tea, coffee. I am very happy to have stayed 5 days with my daughter, and if I ever want to go to Dublin again, I would like to stay at John's place again.
L'appartement est plus que fidèle aux photos car c'est sans compter sur l'accueil chaleureux de John et Julien. Tout est très propre et la salle de bain,la cuisine et le salon sont accessibles à notre convenance. Le petit déjeuner est copieux. Les petites attentions comme le chocolat sur l'oreiller et le thé et le café dans la chambre révèle l'attitude plus qu'acceuillante de nos hôtes.
Le quartier est très bien situé à 15min en bus du centre. Dans le quarier même on trouve tout ce dont on a besoin et des super pubs comme le black bird.
Je conseille vivement cet appartement.
We enjoyed our stay with John and Julien, both of whom were gracious hosts providing directions and suggestions for things to see and places to eat. The accomodations were neat, clean, and as described. Amazingly, the weather was fantastic! Bus 14 or 15 can take you from train station to within 1-2 blocks of the apartment.
It's been a wonderful experience. We've really appreciated the room: it is bright, cute, clean and tidy, and John and Juliet are very polite. We really reccommend this solution: it's very easy to reach the downtown.
Unos anfitriones de 10! nos repetían las cosas si no entendíamos, nos hicieron sentir como en casa y nos ayudaron todo lo posible. Muy recomendado
About the Host, John
Hi, we're John and Julien. We are a couple living together for the last 9 years in Dublin. Julien is orginally from France and has loved Ireland so much that he's been here for the last 14 years. I'm Irish, born in Limerick and living in Dublin for 9 years.
We love travelling exploring new cities, people and culture.
As we are both well traveled we have tried to create a restful gem for the wary traveler with all the things that wouldn't fit in your suitcase at your disposal.
