About this listing

Brilliant 1800s home away from home serves as an ideal city location in walking distance to all the best Dublin sites (St. Patrick's Cathedral & Stephen's Green are not more than a 10 min walk from our house), restaurants (we have the Michelin star Camden Kitchen on our street), and music- pubs (the famous Whelans & Devitt's nearby)! We offer a popular treat of fresh home-made breakfast crepes for those staying on the weekend.

The space

This Georgian period room features in this great family 3 bedroom, 1.5 shared family bathroom, 2.5 story house with garden level Airbnb apartment that accommodates 4 people below. Guests in our home are given the spacious Master bedroom with a gorgeous comfortable King size wood sleigh-bed and period feature fireplace (albeit non-working and only decorative).

We are a Frenchman and Californian lady with 2 children living in Dublin for nearly 20 years and are happy to be your hosts. We do our best to be eco-friendly and organic with all of our household products. Our family enjoys having friendly guests about from all over the world, and it helps us cover the high utility bills in year round heating a big, high-ceiling early 19th century historic house within the cool climate of Dublin.

Guests are welcome to use our cozy family kitchen, eat homemade crepes with us on Sunday mornings, avail of fresh bathroom towels and do a load of wash if staying nearly a week. Also free WIFI connection is available.

We live in a great neighborhood, filled with delightful cafes, small markets, charity shops, pubs/live music, parks, and within a 10 minute walk to the city center (including Grafton Street, Stephen's Green, the National Concert Hall, and St. Patrick's Cathedral). Hidden gems in our neighborhood are the Iveagh Gardens (which features a hedge labyrinth and angel fountains), and the old Jewish neighborhood with its own special Bretzel bakery, and the canal full of swans. Public transport is readily available with bus lines just 2 mins away, the LUAS train 3 blocks from us, and
DublinBikes for rent on our street. Everything you could want to experience in Dublin is within easy access!

Guest access

Guests can use anything in the kitchen (including bulk foods and spices); hair blower (in guest room); iron; family shampoos or toothpaste; towels; videos & travel guides.

Interaction with guests

We are happy to chat with guests when encountered! Guests are considered a part of the family when about, so don't be surprised if we are chatting to you when we are still in our bathrobes! :)

The neighborhood

Our Portobello neighbourhood is an eternally up and coming area with cool cafes, pubs, restaurants and music venues. It is a relatively safe and quiet, well-kept residential area within the hub of the city centre with loads of sites and happenings within easy reach. It is ethnically and economically diverse making for real and dynamic city living. On our street, you will find a Michelin star restaurant, The Camden Kitchen, plus many wonderful breakfast cafes in the area. We live next to the old Jewish neighbourhood complete with Bretzel Bakery and the Jewish Heritage Museum. We are very happy here!

Getting around

Yes, easy public bus access and LUAS line train stop within one block. The public Airport Bus No 16 is only 3-4 Eur in coins each way and so handy to our house; the bus stop is just to the left of our main cross street, CAMDEN.

Other things to note

We offer accommodation in a FAMILY lived-in home, NOT a classic B&B. So please don't expect all the fancy stuff you find in hotels and such. If you want that, feel free to book in the 100-400 Eur (the going rates in our area) rooms around the corner from us.

Also please note we have a new cat (as of 25th Dec. 2016), so sorry to decline those with allergies!

We have central heating through radiators (that cannot be adjusted) and keep the heating going up from 6:30- 11:30am & 4-11pm in the winter. We consider that fair and reasonable. If you come from a warmer climate than that of Ireland, and don't climatise easily, you may want to bring extra layers for warmth to suit yourself. To be fair, please don't expect us to leave the very expensive heating on all night, unless you want to pitch in an extra 10Euro per night.

Please note our shower has an anti-scalding mechanism which never permits it to get super hot and sometimes cuts out for a minute to regulate the temperature. If you prefer the super hot, go for our clawfoot bath with shower nozzle which will always deliver 100% hot water for your satisfaction. Many European homes only have the bath with shower nozzle anyway. If that is not optimal for you, do consider a different Airbnb host.

My girlfriend and I stayed with Danielle and her family for a wonderful weekend in Dublin. Danielle and her husband, Francois, as well as their two daughters, we especially welcoming, and were kind enough to spend a morning with us over breakfast (delicious crepes!). Their home is beautiful, and the room was very comfy and clean. The house is in a fantastic location! Very centrally located, great food nearby, and we will definitely stay in the neighborhood (hopefully at their place!) when we next visit Dublin. A wonderful place to stay for all those visiting the city!

Danielle is wonderfully accommodating and her house was the perfect home base for our short stay in Dublin. The room and the house are both gorgeous and clean, and the area is surrounded by lots of cafes, restaurants, and pubs, all within walking distance of other sights in the city. We loved Sunday crepes and meeting Danielle and her family, who all made us feel so welcome. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a warm + welcoming airbnb experience in Dublin, thank you Danielle!

Francois and Danielle 's place is wonderful, not quite sure how many years I am staying with them when I go to Dublin - but let's say a few! So I am a very happy returning customer :-) They are hospitable and kind, great conversation although discreet if one is too busy. I am always there on business, so highly recommend this lovely airb&B, for me, a gem.

I had a great short stay in Danielle's beautiful, tranquil house. Danielle is lovely, and made me feel very welcome. The master bedroom is very spacious and bright, with a wonderfully comfortable bed; the bathroom is beautiful and the shower excellent; and I really enjoyed the Sunday morning treat of delicious crêpes made by François, accompanied by good conversation. The house was ideally located, only a few minutes from St Stephen's Green. Thanks once again to Danielle and François and their daughters for welcoming me into their home.
