The Neighborhood

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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My mother and I spent 3 nights at John 's home . Perfect place for us: walking distance from the centre, quiet neighborhood but with a lot of services, use of kitchen, wide choice for breakfast, everything clean. Shared bathroom wasn't an issue at all. John and Julien very kind and helpful. Little smell of smoke in the living room only. Strogly recommended.

  • Hôtes très sympas, et de bons conseils pour visiter les quartiers ou établissements à ne pas manquer.
    Chambre vraiment impeccable.

  • Great apartment and great hosts! Nice location - about a 30 minute walk to the city centre, or there are several buses from the end of the road. John sent us really helpful instructions on how to get there from the airport (bus numbers, how much it would cost etc.) and made sure we felt totally at home for our entire stay. Breakfast was included which was perfect for us, and both John and Julien have obviously put a lot of thought into making sure their guests have a comfortable stay - tea/coffee/water in the room, towels provided, chocolates on the pillows. Highly recommended, would definitely stay here again!

    Only minor thing to note is that it is a smoking apartment (though there is no smoking in the bedroom); the apartment is really well ventilated but for those that are really sensitive to the smell of cigarette smoke, it might be something to keep in mind. Wasn't a problem for us though.

  • My experience with John and Julien was lovely, hopefully I will be back again. The apartment is very well located and very clean, the room is brighty and lots of space to storage, the bed is extremely comfortable, perfect when you get to the place after a day out. Rathmines is a nice area to stay and enjoy the restaurants and pubs around. They help us and advice about the area and we had a good chatting on Sunday morning. I recommend this place to everyone who visits Dublín.

  • You could not ask for anything more:
    1. Clean & comfy room
    2. Clean & comfy apartment
    3. Friendly and gracious hosts
    4. Great location...

    but you DO get more! from the little details in the room for your comfort, extra towels, luxury toilet paper, advice on sightseeing and a pot of fresh coffee always on the go...(email hidden) to stay. John & Julien were lovely, friendly and made us feel most welcome!

  • I was visiting Dublin visiting friends and was looking for somewhere to stay in Rathmines. John and Julien accepted my accommodation request right away.

    John and Julien were great hosts: offering a welcome cup of tea as soon as I got there. The room was lovely: well presented, comfortable and with all the trimmings. There was plenty of help yourself breakfast, too.

    My only regret: wished I'd stay longer !

  • John and Julien were by far the best Airbnb hosts I've had yet. Their place was in a great location (10 minutes by bus or a pleasant 30 minute walk to the center) and the room was perfect. They even put chocolate on the pillows! They were so accommodating and were always available whether by phone or in person to answer any questions we had. I will 100% recommend their place to anyone looking for a relaxing, fun vacation in Dublin. Thanks again for the great hospitality!

  • We had a lovely time with John and Julian during our 3 might stay in Dublin. They were very friendly and helpful and both very understanding particularly when I accidentally managed to lock them out of thier own house! Sorry again guys!

    Very helpful with suggestions for things to do and places to go and a lovely apartment in a very handy location, would certianly recommend to others and stay again.

  • We really enjoyed our two nights with John and Julien. They were great guys - very considerate and caring; extremely helpful and friendly; and good senses of humour. We would definitely recommend them to anyone and would stay with them again. The bed was comfortable and the apartment cosy and very clean. Location was excellent - buses and taxis right outside but also only 20 minutes walk to central Dublin. Also an excellent pub opposite with good food and beer - always a plus!

Hi, we're John and Julien. We are a couple living together for the last 8 years in Dublin. Julien is orginally from France and has loved Ireland so much that he's been here for the last 13 years. I'm Irish, born in Limerick and living in Dublin for 8 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.
