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.
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.
For everybody who wants to discover Maynooth (and Ireland) and is looking for a stay, I really recommend Leisa's accomodation! Wiebke and I were there for one week and we had a really great time there. We were welcomed very warmly by Leisa and her family. Besides, they have helped us a lot by looking for accomodation because we are going to study at the NUIM as ERASMUS students. A big thank you to Leisa and her familiy. We will definitely come back!
This was a beautiful stay , with a lovely family. We were made very welcome and made to feel very at home. A highly recommended place to be.
Staying at Leisa's and her family was our last stop after a fortnight touring all over Ireland. That's why we more than appreciated being with such a lovely family, we really enjoyed the quietness of the neighbourhood, we felt so comfortable in the bedroom with such good beds for us AND for our daughter, we were pleased too of being so close to the city centre of Maynooth full of nice restaurants ! The only bad point is that we only stayed two nights !!!
Hi Leisa an Family, we had a wonderful but very short stay at your B&B. Everything was nice espacially your nice three girls. Amelie was very sad as we had to leave in the early morning. When we come back to Ireland, we hope that we can stay longer because it is close to Dublin. Everything was wonderful and we had a warm welcome. Thank you!
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.
