A little bit about Dublin Itself: Dublin meaning "town of the hurdled ford", is the capital and most populous city of Ireland.The English name for the city is derived from the Irish name Dubhlinn, meaning "black pool". Dublin is situated near the midpoint of Ireland's east coast, at the mouth of the River Liffey, and at the centre of the Dublin Region.
Dublin has many landmarks and monuments dating back hundreds of years. One of the oldest is Dublin Castle, which was first founded as a major defensive work on the orders of King John of England in 1204, shortly after the Norman invasion of Ireland in 1169, when it was commanded that a castle be built with strong walls and good ditches for the defence of the city, the administration of justice, and the protection of the King’s treasure. Largely complete by 1230, the castle was of typical Norman courtyard design, with a central square without a keep, bounded on all sides by tall defensive walls and protected at each corner by a circular tower. Sited to the south-east of Norman Dublin, the castle formed one corner of the outer perimeter of the city, using the River Poddle as a natural means of defence.
The Molly Malone statue near Grafton Street.
One of Dublin's newest monuments is the Spire of Dublin, or officially titled "Monument of Light". It is a 121.2 metres (398 ft) conical spire made of stainless steel and is located on O'Connell Street. It replaces Nelson's Pillar and is intended to mark Dublin's place in the 21st century. The spire was designed by Ian Ritchie Architects, who sought an "Elegant and dynamic simplicity bridging art and technology". During the day it maintains its steel look, but at dusk the monument appears to merge into the sky. The base of the monument is lit and the top is illuminated to provide a beacon in the night sky across the city.
Many people visit Trinity College, Dublin to see the Book of Kells in the library there. The Book of Kells is an illustrated manuscript created by Irish monks circa. 800 AD. The Ha'penny Bridge; an old iron footbridge over the River Liffey is one of the most photographed sights in Dublin and is considered to be one of Dublin's most iconic landmarks.
Other popular landmarks and monuments include the Mansion House, the Anna Livia monument, the Molly Malone statue, Christ Church Cathedral, St Patrick's Cathedral, Saint Francis Xavier Church on Upper Gardiner Street near Mountjoy Square, The Custom House, and Áras an Uachtaráin. The Poolbeg Towers are also iconic features of Dublin and are visible in many spots around the city.

Our stay at Danielles family couldn't have been any better!
Her lovely family welcomed us very openly, the entire house is very clean and tasteful and Francois, Danielles husband, even made crepes for us for breakfast. Besides, the two were very helpful regarding our stay in Dublin, they gave us good recommendations on Dublin and Danielle even wrote down directions to the most amazing sea side outside of the city.
We'd love to come back some time!
I could not have asked for a better place to stay or more welcoming hosts. Excellent location and very, very cozy. I will dream about Francois's crepes and that gorgeous home until I visit Dublin again! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I rented the room for mother and we were very impressed of the very nice welcome. Danielle and her family are very kind. The house is near the city center, but the street is very quiet and you don't feel that your are near the city center of a capital city.
The room is very nice. My mother ejoyed her stay there. She felt like in a secound family, very comfortable. So I would rent this room again.
The location is great (walking distance to most places of interest), the house very cozy, clean & nicely decorated and Danielle and Francois are really geat hosts. They are not only very easy-going and helpful but also give you a sense of home away of home (especially with the Francois' delicious Sunday pancakes). Thank you for adding that nice touch to my Dublin experience and Should I come back to Dublin I hope to stay with you again!
Our stay at Danielle and Francois was perfect.
Very good bedroom and bed, very good crepes and especially so good welcome !
And the good places to go out are so close !
Many thanks, next time we come back here for sure !!

Danielle and her family were very welcoming and nice. The place was clean and the bed euphoric. The house was so easy to find and super central. The shower was not very hot but that would be my only critique. Thanks for very welcoming stay!
These are Adorable People, thank you Danielle for the parking disc prepared, and Francois for the pancakes!!! Great place, I shall stay there again next time I am in Dublin. My rating for this lovely family home is 5 star!!
It's hosts like Danielle and her family that make the Airbnb community a special one. If you want to experience Dublin in the perspective of a local family, stay here!
The house itself is a dream come true. I would love to live one day in a house just like it. I loved the location--you'll discover an interesting area no matter what direction you go. The Airport Bus was super convenient to arrive at the house.
Oh and you'll feel like you're in heaven sleeping in the bed and a queen if you choose to take a bath. Danielle has thought of every small detail to make your stay comfortable--including interesting books at your bedside. And if you like yoga, it's about a 10 second commute to class :)
Thank you for sharing your home with me!! This particular Airbnb experience was especially unique, and will be something that I will always remember.
This place is fantastic. The location is central and easily walkable (even late at night without judo skills). The house is gorgeous, large, bright, welcoming, a real family home with plenty of space for everyone to exist and not feel like you are intruding (WiFi throughout). Danielle and Francois are so very welcoming - and a dab hand at making crepes ; ) The room is enormous, a bed so large and comfortable that you pretty much have to swim across it to turn off the reading lights (real feather duvet/pillows - uber warm). There's a Tesco a 3 mins walk away for supplies, oodles of great bars/cafes/restaurants within easy walking distance too. They've lived in Dublin for over 10 years so can help direct you if you're looking for ideas for things to do/see. It's sometimes difficult for hosts to strike a balance between being welcoming and intrusive (I expect that runs both ways) - these guys get it spot on, available if you have a question/need anything yet otherwise they get on with things and leave you to it. If I go back to Dublin, I'm heading to 15 Grantham Street!!
I had a wonderful experience staying with Danielle and her lovely family. Her home is gorgeous, immaculate and has a beautiful calm energy. I plan to book with Danielle next time I am in Dublin, and highly recommend it there.
