Comfortable, spacious, single bedroom with own shower room , desk, chair and wi-fi – perfect for the traveller who likes his/her own space. Ideal too for the business person or student who needs peace and quiet with quick access to the city….
This attic bedroom, on the top floor of a period house is perfect for someone looking for peace and quiet after a busy day. With wi-fi access, a desk and a chair (as well as its own shower room) it's a great fit for a business person or a student who might need to do a little work in the evenings. (Please note: We have two other listings 'Fab en suite near City Centre & Sea' and 'Tranquil en suite ...)
Blissfully quiet, it's hard to believe this room is in a house that's just 10-15 mins by bus from the city centre. The sea and bus stop are a 2 min. walk from the front door & within the same time frame you've a choice of great pubs and restaurants.
With wi-fi access, a desk and a chair (as well as its own shower room) this room is a great fit for a business person or a student who might need to do a little work in the evenings.. (Please Note | We also have a second double bedroom listed - 'Tranquil en suite near city centre' and a room with a loft which can accommodate up to three people -' Fab suite near city centre & sea')
Room features include | Private en suite shower room, comfortable single bed, the are mentioned desk and office chair, drawers, bedside locker, space for hanging up clothes, show rack rocking chair and glass topped table. Also included are iron & ironing board, (on request) hairdryer and lots of space for your luggage
The room is on the top floor (so it might not be a good choice fro someone who does't like climbing stairs - there are two flights to it) of a comfortable two-storey, 4-bed Victorian, red brick house with a surprising light-filled extension to the rear where a light breakfast is provided for guests....
The house, (which is a protected property) enjoys the high ceilings and wonderful features which make Victorian period homes such a privilege to live in. These are seamlessly combined with the luxury of all mod cons, including WiFi and satellite TV. It's on a beautiful road comprising of Victorian houses, all built to individual taste and requirements. You can see the sea from our front gate. Blink and you're on the seaside promenade (great for joggers and walkers - you can borrow the dog if you like!)
A mere 10 -15 minutes is all it takes to ...access town by bus, the mainline service to the West of Ireland, the beach, and some of the best parks in Dublin. Croke Park (where the national games are played) the o2 concert venue, the Bord Gais Energy, Abbey, Peacock and Gate theatres are all easily accessed by bus or train. The city train line (the DART) is a 7-minute walk away, which makes the Aviva stadium a short hop across the river. The airport is a 20-minute drive and is easily accessed by bus.
If you don't want to venture into town there are lots of cafes, restaurants and a little theatre nearby to amuse and entertain you...you're a short walk from two of the best pubs in north city Dublin (Harry Byrne's and The Yacht) but if you want something a little more historic you could go see Bram Stoker's house or the site of the famous Battle of Clontarf, which celebrates its millennium anniversary in 2014, take a trip to Howth or savour the delights of St. Anne's Park. And if golf is your thing you're definitely coming to the right place with a great inland club and two smashing links course right on our doorstep
Bedroom, dining room, garden and courtyard. If you want to watch something in particular on television in the sitting room (as has happened with World Cup football, for instance) that isn't a problem. We have satellite TV downstairs.
Interaction with Guests
We usually sit down with our guests over a cup of tea and a slice of cake when they arrive or if that's not possible we breakfast with them on Day 1 to give them any help we can in making their plans for their trip. But of course, if guests don't need help and prefer to take breakfast on their own this is perfectly fine too!
The ease of access to downtown Dublin, combined with having the sea and some beautiful parks on our doorstep makes this a very attractive neighbourhood for you to stay in.
The bus stop for the 130, which offers a good service to take you to and from the city centre is a 2-minute walk away. Train (the Dart) is 7 mins. walk away. If you fancy walking it takes about 45 mins to the city centre. From the airport we're 20 mins (approx €20) by taxi. There's on-street parking (free) if you've got a car. By bus from the airport it's a 2-bus journey. Shouldn't take longer than an hour. We re about 10 mins by car from the ferry at Dublin Port, about 15 mins. by bus

I had an absolutely lovely stay at Jacinta and Patrick’s home! This was my first time staying in an airbnb and I could not have asked for a better experience. Their home is beautiful, and conveniently located to Dublin City Centre, Howth, etc. Jacinta and Patrick were extremely accommodating and gracious hosts, and had great tips on what to see and do while I was in Ireland. I would highly recommend it to anyone traveling to the Dublin area! Thank you!
I really enjoyed my stay at Jacinta and Patrick's beautiful house. The house is located near the sea side and only a 10 min bus ride from the city, making it a very convenient location. Jacinta and Patrick were very nice and helpful. If any friend were to travel to dublin and ask about places to stay I would definitely recommend Jacinta and Patrick's house! Thank you!
I had a really good stay at Jacinta's. The location is very convenient - just a short bus ride in to the city centre. Jacinta's house is beautiful, with loads of character and very comfortable. It was also great value - I would highly recommend it.
Really enjoyed staying with Jacinta and Patrick in their Victorian house in the seaside area but still easily accessible by bus into Dublin. She made me feel very welcome and at home and is a mine of information about the local area and best things to visit, especially as I was only in the area for a short time. She was there with a cup of tea when I arrived from the airport.
I had a very nice stay at Jacinta's house. Room as described. Nice locality just across sea. She made breakfast herself for you and very helpful. Thank you.
It was great to stay with Jacinta. The room is exactly how you can see on the pictures. The whole family is more than warm and hospitable. Thank you for this nice stay.

I am a freelance journalist/publisher, married with two grown up sons. When we first moved into our house we kept adult students . Over the years we've hosted people from Italy, Spain, Iran, Germany, France, Austria. We've also had au pairs stay with us when our sons were young. It was a great experience, one we enjoyed very much. Some of our former house mates may even be looking at this page. If so... come and stay with us again guys. We'd love to see you!
What are the things I like and can't do without? Family, good friends/companionship, music (all sorts from classical to rock) books, cinema, radio (always on) and sports (I live with boys, say no more!)
I like travelling but not the tent and backpack variety. I am that person who takes the kitchen sink with her and if I forget it I acquire it en route. My favourite destination? St. Petersburg is magic, with Istanbul close behind but the best place of all is Co. Clare — my birthplace, on the west coast of Ireland.... Absolutely beautiful.
