Love Living in Dublin!
Included in monthly rental:
Large living areas (shared). See interaction with hosts for details.
2 private bedrooms: A double with cast iron bath and a twin at attic level
It's a red bricked, 100 yr old house with high ceilings, original marble-ized and cast iron fireplaces. We completed it by adding a deep, claw footed, cast iron bath to a huge bedroom!
Wifi, kitchen, garden, parking, living rooms, piano, TV, everything!
Interaction with Guests
There are 2 private bedrooms within the home which are reserved for the host(s). They are therefore not included or described in the listing.
For much/most of your stay, there will only be 1 host in residence. For some of your stay 3 members of the host family may inhabit these bedrooms.
The house itself and the shared living areas are spacious so for shared times there is plenty of space!
The hosts will interact with renters as much as requested. We are friendly but flexible. Perhaps maximum interaction is preferred, perhaps minimum. We respect your wishes.
This spacious, semi detached, red-bricked house in Glasnevin, Dublin is just 2 km from the city centre!

The house is set along a leafy road in a quiet residential area and is served well by public transport. There is easy access to everything within minutes! Phoenix Park (& the Zoo) are a short bus ride away and there are direct bus routes to UCD, Trinity College, College of Music, DCU and many other third level educational establishments.
It is about 30 minutes from the airport by Dublin Bus (less than €4) and only 15 minutes away by foot from the Glasnevin Cemetery Museum & Genealogy services (no. 1 on tripadvisor), Botanic Gardens, Experience Gaelic Games (no. 4 on TripAdvisor) and an array of restaurants/pubs. The famous Gravediggers pub and the Brian Boru are a short walk away and Croke Park (home of Gaelic Sports) only a little further. It's a great place to live.

Other Things to Note
The facilities which are included in the rent of the bedrooms are many. The house has a south facing garden with a patio and a huge trampoline. On the ground floor there is a compact, modern kitchen with a separate but adjoining dining area. Off the entrance hall there is a music room with a guitar and a piano. Adjoining this there is a large sitting room with multi channel TV. There is wireless broadband and on-street parking. A limited no of bicycles are available.
If you can maintain normal useage of electricity, waste disposal, gas, internet & water there will be no extra charge!
We have a well insulated hot water cylinder so abundant hot water is available! We include a generous allowance of electricity, gas, water, internet & waste services in your rent. Only if your useage is significantly more than normal do we charge a supplement. This is taken out of a negotiated security deposit. Our last renters used less than normal of all the services, had a great time and had their deposit returned! See the review!
Sorting of waste into the various categories is really important to us as is preparation of waste for recycling (ie cleaning plastic containers, flattening cans etc).
Please observe the guidelines for waste disposal clearly outlined in the house.
Tidy/clean after yourself in shared areas please.
Smoking outdoors only please.
Quiet after 23.00 hrs please.
This has been our first experience with Airbnb and it has been fantastic. Grainne and her family helped us in everything we needed. The information about the house was totally correct and in a few days we felt like in our home. Communication with Grainne was great. The house has a garden that was very nice for my sons. The neighborhood was really quiet and peaceful, with a good connection by bus or on foot with Dublin downtown.
We have been staying three weeks and we've been great. The house is very nice, and is very well equipped. Both Graine and her husband were very gracious hosts and always aware that we are not missing anything. We have felt at home. We recommend this property for many reasons: location, equipment, cleaning, neighborhood, and of course by their hosts. Thank you very much for the care received and hope to see you again soon.
We had wonderful time! The hosts are so friendly and lovely, helped us in everything ! We are so thankful and surprised that we recommend everybody to rent this house. Very good communicated, really close to a lot of supermarkets,restaurants, gym, beautiful botanic gardens, quiet and friendly neighborhood. All the rooms are very ample and comfortable. Everything was simply perfect !
Will never forget this experience.
A nice, spacious house close to both the city (walking distance but public transport right around the corner) and the airport. Grainne was a fantastic host, providing great recommendations for local restaurants/pubs and letting us know everything about the house. Would recommend to everyone coming to Dublin . Thanks again Grainne!
The house is very comfortable, tidy and with everything you need to enjoy a pleasant stay.
The house was lovely and ideally situated only a mile or so from the City but in a pleasant quiet (website hidden) was large with plenty of room for the seven guests and sufficient on street parking.Grainne was an excellent host who not only provided a much appreciated welcome pack but made us feel at home from the outset. She made sure that we had more than enough information prior to arrival and was more than flexible regrading arrival/departure times.I would definitely recommend Grainne and her house to other Airbnb members
A really lovely house and hosts, such a pleasure to stay. We had three generations travelling together and there was comfortable space for all and even things to do when the weather turned inclement, which was a real bonus with children in the party.
I also can't emphasise enough how thoughtful our hosts were. When we couldn't get the central heating to work (don't worry, didn't appear to be a recurring issue), one of them immediately drove for 2hrs to come back and sort it out for us. And did I mention the still warm scones waiting for us when we arrived? Also just lovely and warm people.
Also a good spot for visiting Dublin. A pretty, characterful quiet neighbourhood. There's a useful bus stop with regular buses just up the road, which is good if you'd rather avoid taking a car into town. Also just up the road was a convenience store and and some eateries.
Would absolutely recommend it, and would stay there again in a second if returning.
