The Space

Hi ... I hope I can be your host and offer a great experience staying in my city centre apartment! Recently awarded 'Excellence' by Tripadvisor!

Please note this apartment is my home - it is not an empty sterile apartment - if you are looking for such a location - better to pay the higher rates elsewhere .... otherwise i really hope i can welcome you to my home which you will have sole use of!

l check my email constantly and endeavour to reply to all emails very promptly as I know it helps you plan ... PLEASE CONTACT ME TO CONFIRM AVAILABILITY BEFORE YOU SEND A BOOKING REQUEST ... Thanks!

This listing is for my entire apartment which consists of two double bedrooms and two large comfortable double couchbeds in the livingroom - accommodating a maximum of eight guests - though usually I say 6 with comfort!

You also have a well equipped kitchen, a large comfortably furnished living room with flat screen TV, satellite channels and a long balcony with great views of Dublin city centre and the Four Courts!

People book through airbnb to get local information and a friendly welcome in your host's home rather than a neutral sterile apartment - when you book the whole apartment you will be free to enjoy it solely but the warm welcome is still offered!

I provide basic breakfast items for you for the first morning - there are many supermarkets within a few minutes' walk with a corner store at my building!

These accommodations are also listed separately: Dublin Centre Home from Home Rooms 1 & 2.

There is a nice bathroom (NEWLY REFURBISHED) with an electric shower offering unlimited hot water for showers!

If you are not looking to rent the entire apartment please check individual listings for availability as often some of the rooms will be available ...

I am 4 minutes walk from the Luas (tram) Red line which is a direct link to the National Convention Centre but I am within very easy walking distance of anywhere in the city centre!

Please check the availability of each listing I offer on it's calender as they can differ ..... thanks! - its always worthwhile to message me anyway ... as I can sometimes have availability at the last minute!

If you would like any hints on what to do around Dublin or indeed in planning an itinerary around just get in touch! I also love history and have a keen interest in photography and am happy to point you towards some Dublin gems!

It's nice to know who might be coming to stay so if you can please fill me in just a little on your group and your overall travel plans!

I live in Dublin city centre in Smithfield just 10 mins walk from the heart of Dublin and it's principal 'boulevard' O'Connell Street and the cool social/bar/restaurant quarter - Temple Bar.

In addition there is a host of shops/restaurants/bars located just steps from your Dublin home from home - see the gallery of pics for some cool places at your doorstep!

I have a lot of experience in hosting people and showing people my city – I love talking about recent irish history and my apartment looks onto the Four Courts building – one of the many historical buildings in Dublin! I can leave you to your own schedule or am happy to suggest good things to do and see, both in Dublin and in the surrounding countryside and beyond .... from galleries and museums to shopping to country / historical walks – just ask – I am happy to point you in the right direction – Dublin awaits you!

There are many tourist attractions such as Jameson Distillery and National Museum, Collins Barracks along with the famous Cobblestone Bar, renowned for irish music and a good pint of Guinness, right at your doorstep! Just across Dublin's principal river, the Liffey, is St. James' Gate - home of Guinness since 1759!

House Rules

Smoking from my balcony only.

When you arrive I will give you a set of keys for your own convenience - as these are expensive to replace I just ask for a 20 euro refundable deposit.

Please note that all my apartments are in the same building and are of the same standard and for practical scheduling reasons I may assign you a different apartment. This is to make best use of my accommodations to best suit my guests' needs.

The apartment is located very central and close to many bars and restaurants - Dublin is a great town to party in however the apartment is in a mixed development and includes some young families - it is expected that you respect your neighbours - no parties of any description are allowed. Any infraction of this rule will result in immediate termination of your stay in the apartment - this is to ensure quiet enjoyment of the apartment for all - thanks!

Please note all guests must be in possession of a valid visa to visit Ireland - I will not assist in any formal sponsorship process for a tourist or other visa.
