Other things to note

The room is at the top of the house, 2 full floors up from the kitchen and well away from the hustle and bustle of family life, which takes place mostly 2 floors below the bedrooms in the basement.

The basement is 15m x 5 m and is a kitchen/cum diner/cum lounge and tv room, all open plan with sliding doors to a sunny south facing patio and small garden. Smoking allowed outdoors only. I don't make breakfast but you're free to have complimentary tea/coffee up until 10 am ONLY in the kitchen. No use of kitchen after 10 am or any other time. You can use a shelf in the fridge to store foodstuffs you require.
A puggle and a chihuahua called Tikki and Toffee live in the basement of the house ie kitchen area and are not allowed roam upstairs at all. They bark at strangers at first but will lick you to death once you lower your hand for them to sniff and say hello! We also have a burmese house cat called Casper who is also extremely affectionate and friendly.

Very clean and modern house. No noise in the neighborhood (gated community). Great location, with the beach on one side and the embassy area on the other. Easy to access from the airport by bus. A fridge is available in the kitchen for Airbnb guests. Two small and affective dogs and a cat. A great experience overall.

Easy to find great location immaculate house Karen was very friendly and welcoming. The airport bus stop was very close by,the dart stop to go into the city centre a 5 minute walk away, although I actually took my car and was able to park safely outside the house. The room itself was very clean and comfortable and I was sorry to say goodbye, I feel I made a real friend in Karen and hope to see her again.

I had a lovely stay at Karen's house. She was very welcoming and made sure I was happy with everything, comfortable and knew where I was going. The room was as described, spacious, bright and very warm. The house was really nice and tidy. It is a great place to stay and I will definitely stay there if I'm in Dublin again :-)

The listing was very accurate, everything was just as described. Karen was very warm, easy to get in touch with, and super attentive. Her dogs are adorable! The bed was very comfortable and the room had a lot of natural light which was great for resetting jet lag. I appreciated the guides and pamphlets she provided as well. Thanks, Karen!

Karen is extremely gracious, fun, energetic and hospitable. The neighborhood is near the water and makes for a beautiful walk into Dublin City Center. I did it twice while I was visiting and really enjoyed the beautiful scenery and peaceful surroundings. The house is beautiful and my room was great, it felt bigger than the photograph.
