Interaction with Guests
When I am there I love to interact with guests.
Its just about the best place to live in Dublin. Everything on your doorstep, including lovely restaurants, lively pubs, barista cafes, and 20 mins walk to St. Stephens Green, the main pedestrianised shopping area on the south side of the city.
Take the aircoach from Dublin airport. Ask to be let off at Doubletree Hotel.Cross the road, and walk up Appian Way. At the top of Appian way, turn left into village, and third road on right hand side is Ashfield Road. No. 93 is the first house on the right hand side beside the Italian restaurant. Approx. 12 minute walk from Doubletree Hotel.
No pets allowed. No smoking.
Gostei muito de ficar na casa de Mary, a casa é muito bonita e a vizinhança é ótima, com várias opções de compras. Infelizmente não me encontrei com Mary, mas ela providenciou tudo para que minha estadia fosse boa.
I really enjoyed my stay at Mary's house. Both herself and her brother Mike were excellent hosts and I was very glad that I was able to meet them. The house was clean, beautiful and had all the necessities. I was made to feel right at home. It was about a 25 minute walk into the downtown centre or a quick ride on the LUAS tram. I would definitely recommend a stay at Mary's!
The location is very convenient, just a few steps from the main street of Ranelagh. The house is clean and cozy. Mary is very helpful. Excellent accommodation at a great value.
I had a perfect experience on Mary's house. Ranelagh is just great and she and her brother Michael are good people and very friendly. My experience was much better than expected. Highly recommended!
Mary was a very welcoming host, easygoing, helpful and knowledgable about the city.
Mary was away on business so she explained how to obtain the keys and left a note for me with the wifi code. I asked about a hair dryer ahead of time and she had one in the drawer. The decor and vibe in the house was so cozy and calming. Everything was clean. The pillow was really comfortable. There was a Dublin travel book and map on the shelf in the room. My only suggestion, if you are staying in the summer and are sensitive to light like I am, is to bring an eye mask or scarf. The sun rises close to 0500 so the room can get bright pretty early. There is so much right near the location- corner stores, pharmacy, breakfast places, restaurants, a supermarket. I was there studying and the house was quiet and perfect for me. Getting to UCD was easy on the Dublin bus as it would be to get to city center. I was told the area is a posh, up and coming location so the restaurants are more on the expensive side, which I didn't mind. Ultimately, it felt like home and I would love to stay again next time I come to Dublin. I highly recommend it.
Mary was very welcoming with me. The house is confortable and very clean. I like the place, only 3 tramway station to St Steffen Green where you can have good time ... hope i will return there.
