Hi, I have a lovely downstairs bedroom to rent, very centrally located about a 15 minute walk (or less) from Stephen's Green. 5 minutes walk fom the green luas line, and 3 minutes to buses. The 16 bus goes from the airport to a few minutes walk of the house. its by the leafy Portobello end of the canal, with swans and sunshine. Close to the Iveagh gardens, a small gem of a park, with fountains and a waterfall.(even some Dubliners don't know about this one!) Close to the National concert hall, and Dublins lively Camden street. You can smell the hops from the Guinness Brewery on some days. Portobello was the old Jewish quater of Dublin, with the only kosher bakery in Ireland at the end of the street, the Bretzel, and the Jewish Museum just around the corner. George bernard Shaws house is a 2 minute walk from here. lots to see and do.
The room is suitable for couples or singles. I live here with my lovely cat, and am pretty easy going. There is a shared living room, bathroom and kitchen. Sunny decking complete with Hammock.Students and travellers from all over are welcome!
Dublin is a city that everyone raves about. Displaced locals get all misty-eyed about the pubs, the craic, the hilarious, friendly people they left behind.
So make a detour down that side street, spend a few hours trailing through the parks and gardens, take your time in the museums, talk to people in the pubs, watch a hurling match, ride the DART out of town to Howth, Dalkey and Malahide, catch a play, or just sit on the Liffey boardwalk and let it all pass you by.
Whatever you decide to do, you can rest assured that at least one of the clichés about this city really is true: Dublin genuinely does have something for everyone.

We stayed with Mim for 3 nights and 4 days and had an absolutely wonderful time!!!
Mim is a fantastic woman! She was very cheerful and friendly. She was berry helpful and took time to answer all our questions about the city and getting around it. The room was very comfortable and the apartment is in a comfortable place. we didn't have to take a single bus because everything was walking distance. City center and Temple bar were a 20 minute walk away. :)
We highly recommend staying here.
In a comfortable position to reach the city centre on foot, Portobello is a lovely area.
The house was well organized with everything we needed. The atmosphere was always great, Mim and her cat made us feel at home!
We stayed at Mim's house for 2 nights when we were in Dublin and it was everything we hoped for. The room was very nice and clean (we stayed in the room downstairs). Mim is very lovely and nice. She arranged parking tickets for us so we could park for free right near the house. The location is great, a walking distance from the city center.
Mim is a lovely host, friendly, considerate and accommodating. The house cosy, comfortable and is in a great location and a nice neighbourhood. Thanks Mim.
Mim is a very nice and easy going person. She rents out two rooms. My room was on the ground floor. The room was clean and furnished to my needs. Renters are advised to keep the window closed at night, although in a very quiet neighbourhood which felt totalls secure to me...
The apartment overall seemed a bit full of things.
The apartment can easily be reached by Bus No. 16 outbound, stop Harrington street. It takes about 20 minutes from the apartment to the city centre or, if need be, the same bus takes you straight to the airport (riding time approx. 1 hour, cost at the time of writing 2.80€).
I did not eat breakfast but went to diners on Camden street, all in walking distance.
It was lovely staying with Mim in her home. Comfortable bed and a charming atmosphere. Mim is an excellent and thoughtful host, would stay there again.
Mim was wonderful! She was very flexible on checkin/checkout and immediately fed me some lovely soup upon arrival. The room was great, clean and warm. Clear instructions on everything, and lovely to chat with. Not sure what else to say. Great price, location, host, and slept like a log.
Without doubt the nicest most homely place I have ever stayed with out exception. Mim always made sure we were happy, made you feel right at home and was always able to give you information about the local area an amenities. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending it as highly as possible if your in Dublin.
Mim is a vivacious host. She has a great house in the Portobello neighborhood of Dublin, within easy walking distance of the city centre. The room was very clean and comfortable, and the house rules allow for a laid-back, come and go as you please experience.
Mim was very accommodating and friendly-- I was set to arrive early in the morning on a Saturday and Mim was eager to meet me, and did so with a smile on her face. Even though I was an hour later than expected, due to a longer-than-expected customs line, Mim had a pot of tea and biscuits ready within minutes of when I showed up, and laid out the minimal house rules, how to come & go from the apartment, and how to get on the house WiFi.
From there, I was on my own-- the week I stayed with Mim was easy and friendly throughout. The bedroom is separate from the rest of the living quarters, making coming and going easy, and the apartment is centrally located to a lot of fun areas-- roughly a 15 minute walk to Grafton Street, for reference.
All in all, a very positive experience throughout- thanks Mim!
