Interaction with Guests
Paul and myself will be available to help you with any queries or requests you may have. We love to meet and talk with guests but also value your privacy and will give you as much space as you need. If you are travelling by bus/ train we can arrange to meet you off the bus or train in Maynooth and bring you to our home.
Our beautiful historic town of Maynooth, County Kildare is the perfect place to stay as it combines the smaller friendly town feeling with the advantage of being conveniently accessible to Dublin City with trains, buses and by road ( 20 minutes by car). Maynooth is a university town hosting many students from around the world. With the world renowned golf clubs such as Carton House and the K Club Straffan nearby and also Computer giants Intel Leixlip and Hewlett Packard, Maynooth has a lovely atmosphere. Eating out is a must in one of our many top class restaurants. Kildare is also renowned for its first class thoroughbred horse industry. The beautiful Castletown house in Celbridge is only a 10 minute bus trip away.
The Airport Hopper bus links Maynooth to the airport with many runs throughout the day. Maynooth has excellent links to Dublin city centre (Connelly Station) with frequent trains and bus service (number 66 and 67 buses). Also trains and buses to the West of Ireland go through Maynooth. Our house has ample off street parking if traveling by car.
Other Things to Note
Breakfast consists of a choice of cereal, tea and coffee with toast and fresh bread, and juice. You are welcome to use the kettle, toaster and microwave as you wish. We are a non smoking household.
We welcome our guests to come and relax in our home. Please remember that we do have children and they will be asleep if you are returning to the house late. If you make new friends while out please do not invite them back to your room. Also no smoking in the house please.
Great host, beautiful room in a peaceful neighbourhood, 20 min from Dublin Centre. The fact that we had to leave at 5 am wasn't a problem (even managed to eat breakfast :-)
Very sweet time here. The room is like in the pictures and feels very cosy. All is very clean and tidy.
We also very much enjoyed chatting with Leisa, Paul and their beautiful families. They were very kind to give us directions and advice on places to go.
Moreover Maynooth is an excellent location for day trip into Dublin. The center of Maynooth is beautiful too.
My sister and I had a great time there and we recommend warmly the place.
Super accueil, très chaleureux. Très grande chambre, au calme (elle donnait sur le jardin), avec bonne literie. Petit déjeuner continental complet (fruits, céréales variées, pain et confitures, scones...). Le trajet vers Dublin est rapide, car Maynooth est juste à côté de la sortie d'autoroute (25 mn pour nous pour aller à l'aéroport). Restauration facile à proximité (grand choix au centre de Maynooth à 1,5km) : nous recommandons le pub O'Neills, excellente ambiance et viande de boeuf délicieuse. Parking. Wi-fi. Supermarché Lidl tout près. Nous avons adorer discuter avec Leisa et ses 3 filles sont vraiment adorables (la maison, très familiale, est joyeusement encombrée de leurs jouets et dessins, mais la partie "hôtes", séparée, est totalement calme et tout à fait conforme aux photos).
I really enjoyed my stay at Leisa's. She accomodated me at short notice and the room was exactly as described. Leisa made my stay a very pleasant and personable experience. 5 stars :)
Leisa, Paul and their family made me welcome in their home. It was great chatting to them both in the evening and in the morning. The room was exactly as shown, and very comfortable.
Leisa greeted me with tea and scones on arrival, and a decaf tea at night those evenings I was back early.
Maynooth is an excellent location for day trips into Dublin, as it is on the regular commuter train route, or you can take a longer Dublin bus route. It is also great as a base for travel to the rest of Ireland as the motorways are very close. There are many restaurants in the town that have excellent food and four pubs.
About the Host, Leisa
I am the mother of three beautiful girls that keep me busy but very happy!!! I grew up close to Maynooth, went to University in Maynooth and eventually married Paul... a Maynooth man! I have been lucky to have traveled to some beautiful places over the years. I spent a year in Boston when I was 20 which was a fantastic experience. I was able to see a lot of America, and the French West Indies, I have also spent some time in Geneva in Switzerland. We like to visit different countries in Europe when we can. I spent 15 years in the financial services industry before deciding to become a stay at home mother when our third daughter was born. Paul, myself and the girls enjoy many sports and being outdoors.
