Interaction with Guests
On weekends we sometimes like to travel around Dublin and the county and are more than happy to take guests with us if we're going somewhere interesting. We have a lot of information about different sites and are happy to answer any questions and provide advice (there are plenty of brochures brochures in the house).
We love to interact with guests and treat you like family, you are welcome to have tea with us, watch tv with us, go out shopping and do other things. If we're going somewhere interesting and you want to join we can always arrange something!
We also have a GPS with preset routes, bus cards and local SIM cards (that you can borrow and top up yourself in the newsagent 5 minutes away from the house).
The green right opposite the house is a nice place to walk. The neighborhood is fairly quiet and has some food shops, pharmacy, pub, coffee shop and newsagent all within walking distance from the house. One of the largest shopping malls is about 5-10 minutes away (car or bus) and has a 9-screen cinema, leisureplex, theatre, library and lots of nice restaurants. There are a good few take-aways around as well. A few children's play centres/parks are within reach.
We're only 12 km from city centre, so the best travel option is car. Public transportation is not always on time or reliable, and depending on time of the day it can take awhile to get around. Bus is just around the corner from the house (end/start stop), takes about 40+ minutes to get into the city centre , there are other stops a walk away which could save up to 15-20 minutes off your journey. There are 2 train stations close by (1 and 2 km away, not a straight path walk), it takes 20 minutes to city centre by train. The bus 39/39a will bring you to Trinity college, and from Suffolk St. or Aston Quay back to the estate (end stop is around the corner from the house).

We don't have a set check-in or check-out time, so long as you let us know in advance we are ok with any arrangement. Preferred check-in is after 6, preferred check-out is before 12. We can also arrange to pick you up at the airport and / or drop you off (20 euro each way (taxi would cost 28+) on weekends (daylight hours) and week nights.

julie est une personne adorable charmante le sens de recevoir toujours a l ecoute sa maison est tres joli tres bien entretenu nous avons passer un agreable sejour merci julie de ton acceuil
The house was beautiful! We felt very welcome and comfortable to be there. The area was really nice as well, and Julie gave us lots of help with things to do while we were in Dublin.
Very nice experience, she provided everything as advertised. She and her husband gave us a really nice warming experience. Beware that location is 45 minutes from downtown.
Julie was great! We were a bit later than we thought we would be, but she was there to greet us and offered coffee and tea and it was nice to sit at her table and talk for a few minutes. She also has plenty of brochures for Dublin and around Dublin, which helped us plan our days. Julie was very kind, we were still adjusting to the time change (from California, so we were 8 hours behind!) she even sent me a message apologizing for any noise while we were sleeping. We didn't hear because we were so tired, but very sweet, she was attentive to making sure we were comfortable, even when another couple arrived for her other room. Her house was great, bed comfortable, and the little village by her house was so cute and fun to walk around. If you stay here, you have to go to Rendezvous for an Irish Breakfast and coffee! We were able to go down to the little store and buy some snacks and keep in Julie's fridge. She also provided a nice selection of light breakfast (yogurt, fruits, toast, coffee, tea, biscuits). She was also gracious enough to let us wash some of our laundry, we are packed very light so were running out of fresh clothes. Would definitely recommend, and stay here again.
Julie was wonderful! She and her boyfriend greeted us warmly, showed us around, and were great company. They were so kind and helpful. The space was exactly as it was shown, everything was clean, bright, and homey. I would definitely stay here again.
Très bon accueil. Julie est de très bon conseil très accueillante et donne une première image de l'Irlande. Et même si la communication est pas tjs simple en anglais elle essai de faciliter les choses au mieux. Je recommande.
Julie was a fantastic host that I would highly recommend! She was willing to pick us up and drop us off at the airport for a small fee, cheaper than a taxi would have been. She is extremely pleasant and really knows her way around her town and Dublin!
At first when booking with Julie I was concerned that Dublin city center was too far from her house, but the bus ride to Dublin wasn't bad at all! Julie was kind enough to provide us with bus passes that could be easily filled with money at the corner shop. The bus stop to town is just a few minutes walk from her doorstep. The good thing about this particular bus route is that it's the beginning and end of the route! So we were never nervous about getting on and off at the right stop. The bus takes about 50 minutes, but it did not feel that long at all. I am very happy we chose a place just outside the big city.
Julie's house itself was wonderful. She provides slippers upon arrival. I can be a bit of a germaphobe, so my standards of cleanliness are quite high. Julie's home is very clean, cozy and comfortable!
She provides a continental breakfast, hairdryer, towels, and her expertise on everything Dublin. My only regret with booking with Julie is that we couldn't stay longer!
Thanks so much for the fantastic stay!
