As well as your own room and the shared bathroom, we also have a small WC (shared) downstairs, which you can use.

Our house is only 60 metres from the sea front and the beach. We are facing north west and our back is to the south east. The sun shines through the kitchen windows every morning (if it shines at all!), a great welcome to the new day. This is a quiet, residential area, with good transport into the city centre. Our community of neighbours is friendly and helpful. Nearby, is the "village" about 5 or 10 minutes walk, with shops including a bookshop, a vegetable shop, pharmacy, dry-cleaners, supermarket, clothes boutiques. We have some great restaurants, cafes and pubs and menus are available in our house.
The Aircoach from the Airport stops at the top of our road, it is about 20 or 25 minutes journey. Into the city centre, we have a regular bus service which also stops at the top of the road. The Dart is a 15 minute walk away and can take you as far as Greystones to the south and Howth to the north. There is a Taxi office in the village.

This is a no smoking house, either in the house or the garden. We cannot accommodate pets. We feel sure that you will respect our home and our neighbourhood, and will do nothing to disturb or disrupt the household or the other guests.

About the Host, Kathy
I am an artist - a sculptor, and I also enjoy home activities such as baking, gardening and sewing. Myself and my husband, Paddy, like to go hillwalking and rock climbing: we are outdoorsy people. We like to move gently through life, and as a result, our house is warm and welcoming, and restful. As hosts, we welcome visitors and friends alike, and enjoy the company and the stories of all our guests. I enjoy singing and am part of Dublin South Music Makers. We meet every week and sing to each other. I am also a member of our local Transitions Towns and GIY groups.
