The space

This is a large detached home, situated on a quiet road with no through traffic. And we have FOUR rooms available to rent in it, and we live in the home as well, to better look after your needs during your stay. We love to talk if people want to talk! Over the years we have catered for the Leaders from the People to People Student Ambassador programme in the US. Because we enjoyed this so much we have branched out into the AirBnB scene for the last 3 years. Our family have moved out and we have empty rooms now, and so we enjoy the company of guests and visitors.
Four rooms are available, two twin rooms and two singles... single occupancy is at €35 per night, with an extra guest at €30 sharing in the twin rooms.
Directly nearby is the foothills of the Dublin mountains and the famous Wicklow Way walking route.
Rathfarnham Castle is just down the road ,as well as 5 great local parks including Marlay Park and Bushy Park.
Various buses leave our local bus stops every ten minutes, and provide ready access to the City Centre. The bus is definitely the best way to get around the city. Dedicated bus lanes avoid the daily traffic snarls.
Breakfast will be provided at a time of your choice every day.
The quiet local neighbourhood is a guarantor of a good night's rest.
A good pub ( the Blue Haven) is within 300 meters of the door.
And Trendy pub ( the Rathfarnham Orchard) is 800 meters away!

Loads of buses leave the area for the City Centre!

Ger and Jean made our family of six feel like we were at home. Their home was comfortable and inviting. They were so friendly and welcoming that you were sad to leave.
