Interaction with Guests
We (my fiance Enda and I) live in the house. We both work during the day so the house will be empty from early in the morning until mid afternoon.
We know Dublin well and will be very happy to chat with our guests and offer advice and information on Dublin. I work in the theatre so can particularly offer advice on cultural events if this is of interest.
We will do our best to accommodate any particular needs and requests, although would appreciate advance notice of anything unusual.
Stoneybatter/ Arbour Hill is a fantastic area, close to the city centre and with many attractions in the nearby vicinity. These include Phoenix Park, Guiness Brewery, Jameson Distillery, Irish Museum of Modern Art and Lighthouse Cinema.
There are also some lovely, pubs, restaurants and cafes in and around stoneybatter itself and we'll be happy to give recommendations.
The house is an easy 20-25 minute stroll into the centre of the city.
We are next to the red LUAS (tram) line and close to several bus routes.
We are also 10 minutes away from Heuston station for anyone wishing to travel further afield.
There is free parking available in the square.
The house is around 20-30 minutes drive from the airport.
There are no house rules as such. We would just ask you to respect that the house is our home and to treat it as you would your own.
Also please note that the house is in a quiet residential area so please keep the noise down if coming back late at night.
Maisie and Enda nous ont vraiment fait sentir à la maison. Le premier soir ils sont venus nous chercher à la gare de bus, ils nous ont donné un plan et des très chouettes pistes (restaurants, pubs, monuments, etc.) pour découvrir Dublin en profondeur. Ils étaient vraiment très aimables et serviables. La chambre est très confortable et la salle de bain est juste en face. Malgré le fait que la salle de bain est partagée, nous n'avons eu aucun problème, nous nous sommes très bien coordonnés. Le petit déjeuner est copieux et varié, un vrai régal. Nous recommandons à tous ceux qui veulent visiter Dublin et vivre comme les Dublinois de rester chez eux, ils ont fait de notre voyage une très riche expérience de la ville.
Pour un premier séjour en Irlande, nous fûmes ravies !
Maisie et Enda ont été très amicaux. Ils nous ont donné des conseils de visite. Leur maison est accueillante, proche du tram et à une 20aine de minutes à pied du centre-ville. Ce fut très chouette pour découvrir les quartiers alentours. Nous recommandons nos hôtes pour un séjour irlandais !
Although we spent the majority of our trip in Ireland driving across the country, Maisie and Enda were very thoughtful and kind upon our arrival. The bnb location is slightly out of the way, was very hard to navigate back to if you plan to rent a car and was located behind a prison (whose siren went off our first night) but all in all, we enjoyed our time there.
We stayed here for 2 nights, the house is really charming, in a quiet area close to the city centre. Maisie and Enda gave us a warm welcome and lots of advices to visit Dublin. They are really nice hosts. They recommended us a lovely and typical pub close to their house.
We do recommend Maisie and Enda house!
It was a wonderful stay, the room was exactly like in the pictures, bright and comfortable.
The apartment is about 35 min walk to the city centre (City Hall), but we like walking, so it was OK for us. There is a tram station about 5-7 min walk from the apartment, it can take you to the centre if you don't like walking.
The most important thing is that Maisie and Enda were the most welcoming, friendly and helpful hosts ever!!! It was a real pleasure to meet people like them, they gave us lots of helpful information, and took care of us like we were their friend.
If we come back to Dublin, we will definitely be happy to stay there again.
This was an absolute great first experience wih AirBnb ! I didn't know we will get the chance to know a host so attentive with his guests ! It's a shame Maisie was away but Enda did a really great job ! First, he came and pick us up at the bus station to help us out with our bags (and also we could not get lost this way!).Then: we got 2 irish mugs as a St Patrick's present ! Lovely !! The place was as cosy and clean as in the pictures! We slept very well and a continental breakfast was ready for us in the kitchen every morning ! 20mins walk from center, but really, we never thought it was too much ! And the area is nice and calm, and one of the pub around home became one of our favorite ! And if you don't want to walk : the tram is 5min away from home ! We took it only two times!
Really, St Patrick's days is not the good days to get to know Irish customs and habits so that's why it was a chance to stay at this place because Enda explains a lot of things about the city and country and also he showed us some places to go to eat and drink, around the house and away from tourists attractions (where real irish people go!)! He even had a drink with us the first night and the last night with his friends who were as lovely as him !
I so recommend Maisie and Enda for your stay in Dublin! From the beginning, Maisie was welcoming and very friendly in our emails exchange, and Enda made it perfect once there ! He was very open and funny, and patient with our english ! We had fun from beginning until the end ! We just felt like home !
