Our comfortable 1st floor apartment in the suburb of Portmarnock has sea views, is near the beach, supermarket and bus routes to the city centre and Dublin airport. Warm, bright, clean, it sleeps 4/5 and is perfect for visiting Dublin. Full kitchen and dining area, with all mod cons.

The space

Sunny, light-filled, spacious, independent 1st floor apartment with large south-facing windows and sea view, in the seaside town of Portmarnock. Located close to the famous three mile long Velvet Strand, every convenience is on your doorstep with a large supermarket and other shops at 1 minute's walk. Nearby fabulous restaurants and pubs, 2 large hotels (Portmarnock Golf Links Hotel and White Sands Hotel) golf, tennis, swimming pool, scenic coastal walks, sailing, kayaking, windsurfing & kite surfing. Take the family to play golf or tennis in Malahide Castle Park which also boasts a large children's playground, beautiful walks and an Avoca store and restaurant, a popular destination for Dubliners and visitors alike. Or play golf at one of Ireland's exclusive private golf links, the Portmarnock Golf Links Hotel. Garden enthusiasts can also visit Malahide Castle Park & Gardens where rare plants have been cultivated for decades. Portmarnock also has plenty of smaller parks, public pitches and open spaces to play football or other sports.
Beside the sea but close to Dublin City, Portmarnock offers an ideal environment to enjoy a real Irish holiday. Visit Dublin during the day, enjoying the wonderful atmosphere of this vibrant City and then come home to refreshing sea air in the evening. Or just spend the day relaxing on the beach, going for invigorating walks along the coast and maybe into one of Malahide's excellent coffee shops or restaurants for a treat! Malahide and Portmarnock are only 3 km apart, and the coast road path linking them is a very popular walk/run/cycle both for locals and visitors, with breathtaking sea views out to the islands of Lambay and Ireland's Eye. On the way, take the kids down to the rock pools to look for hermit crabs, anemones and other fascinating sea life.
Enjoy a drink in one of the atmospheric pubs and listen to a variety of great music. Monday night sessions at the Island View Hotel are particularly good for traditional Irish music enthusiasts. Malahide has a wide variety of restaurants to suit all tastes. There is something for everyone in this home away from home in a very desirable residential area.

We had a fantastic time in Ireland and enjoyed our stay at this lovely little apartment. Sheelagh was very accommodating of our late arrival, allowing us to let ourselves in, and providing bread and butter for toast in the morning. The grocery is just around the corner and a lovely two mile sand beach is only a five minute walk away. Its a great location with an easy drive or bus ride into Dublin and just a couple miles from the beautiful town of Malahide.

Sheelagh was a wonderful host. Her apartment is in a great suburban location, with Dublin just a 30 minute ride away on bus or train. We chose not to rent a car for our visit, and Sheelagh offered helpful advice on using the bus routes & even helped us call a cab. Bus routes are within a short walk from the apartment, and the grocery store is very handy also. Not to mention the sea, which is a very short walk away and has a beautiful beach for walking. The location was perfect for our vacation. The apartment itself is lovely, very comfortable, with plenty of room for the three of us, and we were able to make use of the washing machine in the apartment, which was an unexpected bonus. Thank you again Sheelagh for making our visit to Dublin very special! We hope to visit again!

Had a awesome trip! Sheelagh was perfect. Such a sweet person. She helped us find our way around the city. Recommended some places to go and helped us understand the public transit. The house was warm and welcoming. Very clean and had everything you could ask for. Only negative thing was water pressure was low in shower. Cheap, cozy and convenient..

My friends and I went to Ireland for St. Partick's Day and we wanted to find a place that would be outside the city, but close to Dublin when we wanted to venture over. We were introduced to Sheelagh's house in Portmarnock and it was exactly what we were looking for. It's about 15 minutes away from Dublin by taxi, 45 minutes by bus. There's also a grocery store walking distance from the house where we got our breakfast items and snack. Everyone we met in Ireland is extremely nice and helpful! Sheelagh lives next door if you ever have an questions, but she gives you all the privacy you need during your stay. We got some recommendations of some tourist and non-tourist places to visit while we were in town. She has available a blue binder that gives you all the bus times and popular places to go to in each nearby city. The house looks exactly like the pictures Sheelagh posted, and everything is just as she says on her profile. We talked about coming back to Ireland, and because of our experience, we said that we would if given the chance. Thanks Sheelagh!

We had a wonderful stay at Sheelagh's. The flat was very clean and well-equipped. Buses to and from the airport and Dublin city center are easy to use with thé leap visitor card. Portmarnock is à charming village, away from the city buzz. We highly recommend this place. Sheelagh out hostess is à lovely person.

I love meeting the people who come to our apartment as they come from all corners of the globe and are so interesting to talk to. One of my favourite local walks is the scenic coast road between Malahide and Portmarnock or around the Castle park, finishing with coffee and delicious cakes in one of the many Malahide cafes. At my home I grow organic vegetables in raised beds and walk my dog daily. I'm very interested in natural health especially homeopathy, environmental issues and nature in general - this is why living in this area with clean air, close to the sea, but with easy access to the City is just perfect! Also could not live without family and close friends, all things Italian, especially Parmesan cheese, good books, music and films! I spent 10 years in Italy, speak fluent Italian and adore the aliveness of the Italian spirit!
