Interaction with Guests
I look forward to welcoming you on your arrival and showing you around the house, answering any questions you may have and providing insider tips and information on local sights and amenities. I'll be available by phone, email, text, or Whatsapp for the duration of your stay and hope to make your holiday in Dublin as pleasant and enjoyable as possible.
This is a very safe, friendly area - one of the few remaining genuine old Dublin neighbourhoods still unspoiled by 'progress'. People around here still know each other by name and greet each other in the street with a smile - a rare find in most cities these days!
We're also lucky enough to have the beautiful, tranquil Phoenix Park literally as our back garden, which is the largest enclosed park in Europe and a wonderful space to explore. The deer roam freely here, and you can enjoy an exhilirating run, take in the award-winnning Dublin Zoo, or just relax and watch the world go by over a delicious coffee and cake at the quaint little old Tea Rooms down near the Bandstand. The lovely Royal Canal Walk is just a short stroll away too.
Within 2 -10 minutes walk, we have several fantastic bars and restaurants, including the jewel in the crown - The Hole In The Wall. If it's a REAL traditional Irish pub experience you're after, then this can't be beaten!
The best bit! While there is bus stop about 5 mins walk away, and train at 15 mins, almost all my guests choose instead to avail of my wonderful local taxi drivers - and right-hand men! - Robbie and Jimmy. (See the many glowing mentions they get in my reviews) From airport pick-ups, to short hops into Temple Bar/City Centre, to day-trips out to our beautiful coastal fishing villages such as Howth, Malahide or Dalkey, the guys will be on hand to make getting around Dublin fast, easy, affordable, enjoyable and stress-free. Also, Robbie and Jimmy are the absolute Fonts of All Knowledge on the subjects of places to see and things to do in Dublin, and are happy to offer the best advice and suggestions, specifically tailored to your requirements. Several guests have even remarked that it's like having your own personal tour guides, for a similar cost to public transport - and it's true! The friendly, efficient service they provide my guests in invaluable (and unrivalled!) and a huge perk for anyone who chooses to stay here.

Susan was a magnificent host! Our flight got in quite late on the Thursday night and she still waited up for us all to arrive at the house to make sure we arrived safely and to give me a tour of the house and how everything worked. Not only that but she also had a birthday cake and drinks and a fully stocked fridge and freezer that we were allowed to eat and drink whatever was there. There was also everything you needed already in the house!! Shampoos, conditioners, body wash, hair dryers, straighteners everything!! There was also a pre paid phone just like the pictures show and a bag full of tourist attraction brochures and maps of Dublin. The house is EXACTLY like the pictures immaculately clean and incredibly homely! With Phoenix Park literally on your doorstep, incredible location! Not only was the home and Susan lovely but the taxi drivers Robbie and Jimmy are the stars of the holiday! They are the taxi drivers that Susan works with and the three of them are the perfect trio. Robbie and Jimmy were always at hand and willing to take us where we wanted to go and advise us on the best places to go as well. They were so chatty and friendly and really made us feel welcome in Dublin. Not only that but they provided a historical perspective driving through the streets of Dublin too. Really a fantastic bunch, a great addition to a fantastic holiday! Thank you so much for everything you have provided for our holiday Susan!!!
Throughout the booking process, Susan always responded quickly to questions and was full of tips and advice about the local area. Susan welcomed us in person when we arrived in Dublin and had kindly made arrangements to have taxi’s collect us from the station, and had a fully stocked fridge (for a group of 12 girls, that can’t be easy!) which made the trip incredibly convenient. Robbie and Jimmy, our taxi drivers for the weekend were super helpful, very funny and warm and made us feel at home for the duration of our stay. I can’t recommend them highly enough! We had a great laugh.
The listing was incredibly accurate, the house is gorgeous and just like the pictures and Dublin was a fantastic venue for our weekend away. We had a great time. Thanks so much Susan, Jimmy and Robbie!
Many thanks to lovely Susan! Our stay was very pleasant and very confortable. We were a big group of 12 and it was exactly what We expected. Everything you can need is in Susan's house ! She let for us plenty of food and was very helpful.
Many thanks also to Jimmy and Robbie! A "Must have" during your stay in Dublin!
Susan made us feel like home giving us all the facilities that we need it. The house was very warm and confortable. It was exactly we expected.
Susan trust us to rent the house although we were a big group.
The neoghborhood was quite and didn't have traffic so we could sleep well, and the house is near a supermarket and pubs !!!
About the taxis we had a great experience, not only were they cheap but also they explain us a lot of things of Dublin. They were some kind of touristic guides to us.
Jimmy and Robbie are very kind and funny, they are the bests !!!!
We recommend the house to everybody that goes to Dublin.
Thanks for all Susan, Robbie and Jimmy !!!!
Susan is a great host and does everything to make your stay an enjoyable one. The house perfectly accommodates for 8 adults and has everything you need for a stressless stay. The taxi drivers Jimmy and Robbie pick up in front of the house and drop you off in the city center, quick and easy.
There are a couple of really good pubs very close by where you can a nice evening and just walk back.
We had a really nice stay, thanks !
Susan made our whole experience enjoyable and easy. She answered all my emails before the trip and we were met at the airport by Jimmy and Robbie who were just fantastic.
The house suited us 10 ladies down to the ground! It was clean,comfortable and breakfast(sausages,eggs etc) was all provided.Getting into town was easy and the beautiful Phoenix Park was on the doorstep. I would thoroughly recommend this property and would stay here again.
I stayed in Susan's house for a weekend to celebrate my birthday with nine friends. The house was lovely and Susan was a great host; before we arrived she was excellent at responding to messages and answering all my questions.
The house was clean, tidy and beautifully decorated. Susan has also thought of absolutely everything you might need whilst away from home and has fully stocked cupboards, cabinets and drawers - you really don't need to bring anything except your clothes. There were also plenty of full length mirrors which was great for a party of ten girls and although it was freezing outside you wouldn't have known it as the house was kept nice and warm for the duration of our stay (that may sound an odd thing to mention but I always worry I'll be cold!)
Susan really went the extra mile as a host; not only did she have a birthday cake and wine in wait for me on arrival but she also took me to nearby Navan where I have family roots and helped me to locate the very building where my nan was born.
Although the house isn't in the city centre Jimmy and Robbie were such great taxi drivers who made themselves easily contactable and available that the journeys in and out were not an issue. Along with Susan they were very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful and we really got the most out of our time there by using their services.
Susan was very flexible and allowed us an early check-in and late checkout, she was also easily contactable whilst we were there and responded promptly to any messages we sent her.
We had a great stay ad everybody in my group has said that they would definitely stay at Susan's again. This has to be the best air bnb experience I've had.
Thank you Susan for being such a great host & for making the house so warm and welcoming! :)

Hi there, I'm Susan. I live on the edge of the Phoenix Park, Dublin and couldn't wish for a better place to live. We're close enough to town to enjoy and appreciate everything our city has to offer, yet only have to look out our windows at the glorious park views to feel far removed from the hustle and bustle. I've had wonderful experiences as an AirBnB guest on breaks to cities such as London, New York and Barcelona, and decided it would be fun to try hosting for a change! I believe Dublin is one of the most characterful, vibrant cities in the world and will be more than happy to assist in every way possible to make your visit to our charming city an exciting, effortless, unforgettable experience. ;-)
