I have one super king very comfortable bedroom available (with new mattress) which can accommodate 2 people. You would be sharing the bathroom as I have my own. All the hot water is heated by solar tubes!! You have your own TV in each room with satelite channels but you are also welcome to unwind in the spacious living room which is very cosy on colder nights when I light the stove which is an enclosed fire that uses less fuel but emits more heat, (in keeping with the eco-friendly theme of the house) just what you need on those cold wintery nights!!
I live right beside a one of the best bus routes and tram to the city centre and the journey takes 20mins. The sea is about 10/15mins away by bus. There is an airport bus that comes straight to my house too which is very convenient as it runs 24/7. It's a very safe and quiet neighbourhood with a typical Irish pub, (website hidden)(phone number hidden), that serves great Guinness within a minute's walk for those nights you want to stay local. I'm happy to provide you with all the tourist information you may need in relation to the best museums and pubs etc to visit.
A simple breakfast of toast or cereal plus tea and coffee is included in the fee. If you would like to stay for dinner that is at an extra cost or you can use the kitchen yourselves and make yourselves at home especially on mornings when I'm having a lie in!!
I like to grow as much food as I possibly can so during the summer, all salads etc are all organic from my garden!! If you have any questions, just ask. I look forward to hearing from you and hopefully hosting you. Anyone who stays with me always say they feel very welcome and at ease straight away, so I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to my cosy home in Dublin in the not too distant future. Happy travelling and adventuring! Rachel :-)
As I sometimes work from home, I would just ask when you are here during the day when I'm working that you would be as quiet as possible. I will give you your own house key on arrival and don't mind if you come home late. Other than that I like to think that I am an easy-going host who enjoys meeting new people and making their stay in Dublin a memorable one!
Rachel is a very nice host and interesting person. She created a comfortable and creative environment and even met me when i got lost :)
I loved the atmosphere and the warmth of the place. will definitely stay again :)
Especially important to me, the house was warm!
Rachel's is very confortable and Rachel isvery kind and helpful person. She learns me a lot of things. The house is based very well linked with the city center and the area is quite quiet.
I has a very enjoyable stay with Rachel. She was able to accommodate me at very short notice and was very helpful. The house is right beside the N11 so its very quick and handy to flag a taxi or get a regular bus into city centre. Happily recommend to anyone. :)
Lovely house in a quiet area, near a bus stop. Very comfortable bed, very friendly dog. We actually missed meeting Rachel in person, but she guided us kindly via text when we got lost. We have already recommended Rachel to friends.
I enjoyed my stay at Rachels place. The location is very convenient and the room very comfortable. Rachel was away for the weekend, but with the key I could come and go as I pleased.
Comfortable and cosy house.. good nights sleep, quiet location. Near bus stop and not too far from UCD. Rachel was welcoming and left me with a key to come and go .. Overall a pleasant experience.
Hi I love hosting people and have been doing it for many years now as I love meeting new people from all over the world and giving them the famous Irish welcome. I have many interests such as cooking, photography, walking, reading, psychology, the environment and nature, cycling to name just a few. Anyone who stays with me always say they feel very welcome and at ease straight away. I look forward to welcoming you to my home and to my beautiful city of Dublin.
