A truly wonderful location in a quiet, leafy little street, close to all the main attractions Dublin has to offer. Great pubs and restaurants in Ballsbridge or in the pretty village of Sandymount are both just a short five minute stroll away, with a Tesco supermarket, a good butcher, greengrocers (which also sells some speciality health foods), a book shop, some nice boutiques and some very good restaurants and famous pubs. There are also landmark pubs, excellent restaurants in Ballsbridge which is even closer but has less of a 'village' atmosphere.
Our favourite thing is to walk to the Poolbeg light house for sweeping views of Dublin Bay - and if you're lucky you will find a fisherman selling mackerel straight out of the sea!
20 minutes walk from the city, 10 minutes by train - or take the bus. The train station is right around the corner or the bus stop into the city is also extremely close by.
Other Things to Note
Extremely close to the RDS where the legendary Dublin Horse Show is held each August. In summer, you can have a barbecue in the garden or take a stroll down to Sandymount beach. You can meet all your grocery shopping requirements at the Tesco in Sandymount.
Please do not smoke in the house. We do not allow pets.
Nicola and Eamon were very friendly - could not have been more welcoming. Their lovely home was a very comfortable and spacious stay for our group of 3 single girls. Location was well placed for the DART and cabs into the city were around a tenner. My first Airbnb experience but definitely not my last!
Eamon & Nicola were absolutely amazing hosts. The house was even more beautiful than the photos, and we instantly felt as home as soon as we walked in the door.
The house is in a fantastic location, in a quiet cul de sac, but super close to the DART station, shops, cafes and parks. It allowed us the perfect opportunity to explore Dublin, whilst having a quiet and relaxed 'home' to come back to.
There were 7 people in our group (all family, including two toddlers), and we all had loads of space, and felt extremely comfortable kicking back and relaxing. Eamon and Nicola have worked very hard to make their home a sublime and welcoming space. I cannot recommend them, and their home, highly enough. Absolutely superb.
We spent to nights in this really lovley, clean and quiet House.
We would defenitly recommend it for a relaxed stay in Dublin.
You can't ask for more. So 5 stars for the house from Eamon & Nicole.
thanks for the stay
Beautiful place, great host, everything as discribed, located next to Sandymount Dart Station (perfect access to Dublin centre), nice breakfast place (Browns) around the corner. Eamon is just the perfect host: flexible, organized, lovely and funny. We really enjoyed our stay (and lit the fire place every single evening:-))
We were delighted when Eamon responded to our last minute request, a prompt reply despite it being Stephens day. All arrangements were made with ease, Eamon arranged for us to collect the key and we found the house to be inviting and so comfortable on arrival; Both log fires were set and beautiful bed linen and towels were prepared for us. We were lucky enough to enjoy the gigantic traditional Christmas tree, and super dining table, allowing us to host our Christmas family gathering in true banquet style!
Eamon was very helpful, the house is lovely and in a perfect location.
Eamon was a fantastic host; the house was lovely and cosy with a gorgeous fire already burning in the fireplace when we arrived. The house is just lovely, beautifully decorated with a wonderful homely feel and the kitchen cupboards were full with everything you could possibly need! The area was great, we had breakfast both days in Browns which I can highly recommend and getting the dart into the city centre could not have been easier – to be honest we didn’t want to leave
About the Host, Nicola And Eamon
Hi we're Nicola and Eamon.
This is our spacious family home in the quiet but very centrally located Ballsbridge area. The Intercontinental hotel is just close by so it's a great neighbourhood.
The famous Irish poet WB Yeats was born around the corner on Sandymount avenue! ( This year sees the 150th anniversary of his birth)
The Dart (light rail) is literally a two minute walk from the house. It brings you right into the city in ten minutes - or out to the pretty seaside towns and villages of Howth, Dalkey and Killiney where you can stroll around the shops and sample the local seafood.
The house was built in 1892 - it's on a lovely terrace overlooking a little park and tennis court owned by the residents of our street.
You can catch a glimpse of the famous rugby venue, the Aviva stadium right at the top of the road.
The RDS - home to the legendary Dublin Horse Show is less than five minute's walk away.
The picturesque village of Sandymount is also very close by - with nice little shops, cafes and lovely restaurants for a very easy and relaxed night out.
We renovated the house top to bottom recently but did our best to maintain the character and charm.
It's a lovely warm family home, 140 sq metres large. It has a great kitchen with a 'snug' just off it where you can watch tv in front of an antique French stove in which we burn wood and Irish turf.
A tranquil sitting room at the front overlooks the park and it has an open fire where you can sit and read peacefully, listening to the radio, relaxing after a day of sightseeing!
A little bit about us: We are college buddies who first met while studying in University in Galway, now we're married with 3 kids.
Pre-kids we did a good bit of travelling but post-kids we've done even more! Among our favourite places on the planet are Buenos Aires, Budapest and Kyoto. We consider ourselves easy going and fun and would love people to enjoy our home in our absence!
We are very proud of our Airbnb 'superhost' status - thanks to all the lovely guests we've hosted so far - and we work hard to maintain it!!
