About this listing
We would love to share our own home with you, and because WE LIVE HERE TOO, we can really look after you. We provide a full Continental breakfast for the hungry traveller. Our children are grown and we have FOUR rooms available to rent. Great access to Dublin's delights is available via our 5 bus routes. Its history, culture and pubs are just on your doorstep.
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.
