About This Listing
Welcome to your Dublin-style home away from home! Within minutes of tons of cool activities and public transit, this safe & cozy flat will provide a homey space in a great location to explore this fun city! Come and see Dublin at it's best! :)
Welcome to FBer's flat!! :)
I live 5 mins from RDS (Royal Dublin Society) and 2 mins from the Sandymount railway station which helps me go to Dublin city center (only 4km away) and commute to work in the morning super easily.
This flat is located in the Embassy district where I can easily find nice restaurants and interesting strolls! (of course it's a very safe and nice neighborhood!) Come stay with me! :)
Dublin is not all about pubs!! If you want to stay in the calm and safe area but also convenient to go to the city center, this is the perfect place for you!
This place is not a professional renting house, but the place I really live and have my life in, so it's much more cozy, warm and habitable (I believe :)). My flat has two bedrooms: one with a super-size king bed and the other with a double bed with memory form mattress ( both super comfy!!!). The kitchen is cute and everything you'll need for your stay. The living room furniture is awesome and you'll love cuddling up on the sofa with a good book after your daily adventures! The floors are new and so are many of the kitchen appliances!
I provide all the basics: towels, linens, toilet paper, soaps, shampoo & conditioner so you can have all the FUN!!
I'm currently out of town for a while, so this entire flat is available for renters to use. Great for couples, family excursions, and international travelers. It's one of the best locations in Dublin-within easy reach to so many amazing sites. I know you'll love it!! Email me, let's get started!
- free wifi
- washing machine
- fully equipped kitchen
- towels and bed linens
- shampoo, conditioner, body gel

I am currently away traveling for work, so the entire flat is available for guests' use exclusively.

The flat’s location was perfect for staying in Dublin. We felt the neighborhood was safe, quiet and close to the dart(train) line to reach the city center. When we arrived we had to wait outside for thirty minutes in the rain because the cleaner who was supposed to let us in did not show. When we were welcomed by the cleaner we were not shown how to work everything such as the washer and dryer and stove top and oven. We were under the impression from the description before we rented the flat that Alexis was going to be the one to greet us and be there in person to answer questions. As four young girls traveling we would have liked to know ahead of time that the cleaner greeting us was a younger man. When we messaged Alexis on Airbnb she would respond quickly. It was hard for her to answer questions because she was not living in Dublin and she had to rely on her cleaner. Overall, we really enjoyed Ireland.
The flat is spacious and comfortable. The location was very convenient for our visit to Dublin. Communication with Alexis could not have been better. Her agent was present at the time we arranged and was thorough and pleasant. This was our first airbnb experience and it was very good. I would certainly recommend this hot and this flat.
I had a wonderful time in Dublin. Alexis gave me a lot of useful information and made planning my trip a lot easier. The flat was really nice and had every thing we needed. I would highly recommend staying here. The neighbourhood was very welcoming and safe. The aircoach to and from the airport was brilliant.
Ottimo appartamento in una posizione perfetta per il centro e per il lungomare. Camere ben arredate e con tutto il necessario per soggiornare ( ci sono anche gli adattatori internazionali). La cucina accessoriata con tutte le stoviglie, caffè e tè. Alexis è stata gentilissima e sempre disponibile.
Consigliato a tutti
Lovely flat, brilliant location - would love to live there! Very quiet neighbourhood but within short walk of everywhere we wanted to go.

About the Host, Alexis
;) I am out-doorsy nature lover that loves traveling and meeting people! Also I love trying new things! So far, I have studied and worked in 8 different countries around the world. (not counting the good number of places I have visited and travelled -- so far 247 cities in 40 countries!! I know it's a lot!!)
I love trying different things and learning new things. I have studied computer science, energy market, technology policy, data science and worked for many international organizations - a game company in Korea, environmental consulting firm in Paris, a startup in Boston and Faecbook here in Dublin. I used to be a secretary for a congressman in Korea making regulations and writing for his speeches, and I was selling some ramen pots to K-pop (Korean pop) fans in Indonesia, US and Ireland.
I brought lots of art pieces from Bali and Thailand to Dublin and had two Indonesian art exhibitions in Dublin since arriving! Some of these art pieces you can find in my airbnb flats! :)
With Facbook (I can't type the proper name because of airbnb's website hiding policy but i mean the evil awesome, social media company), which is my latest magic place, I created and led a project to understand permanent account deletion users through their demographic data and behavior data, which was fascinating!! :D
Briefly introducing my outdoorsy life, I am semi-professional scuba diver; have dove more than 300 times in quite diverse places including Atlantic sea, Red sea, Florida, Indonesia, Thai, Malaysia, Mediterranean and Korea! I personally love Bali SO MUCH and lived in Bali for half year, collecting interesting paintings, meeting Balinese artists to help them build their own webpages to sell their art works, and swimming, diving and surfing! And in addition to scuba diving, I do horse back riding, wind surfing, running, bit of surfing and cycling. (I did cycling a lot in infamous winery region in France such as Bordeaux and Burgundy. ;-) Ping me if you are interested in half drunk cycling in gorgeous French winery towns!
Now I live in Seoul, South Korea and Dublin, Ireland half & half, so ping me when you are coming to one of these places! :-) I love meeting people and hopefully I can meet interesting and lovely people through Airbnb while I am in the same place as you! :)
Life is amazing! Looking forward to meeting you :D
