At the weekends we can be more flexible. Checkout is flexible too depending on when our next guest will arrive. You will never be asked to checkout before 12 noon. We usually don't take guests for one night stays, however, sometimes it might suit us to take guests for one night, especially if we have only a day or two available between stays. Feel free to ask.

Interaction with Guests
The amount of interaction we have with our guests very much depends on the guest. You will see from our reviews that we fully understand what Airbnb is all about. If you, as a guest, wish to sit with us and share stories and experiences we will be delighted to chat over a tea/coffee or maybe even, on occasion, a glass of wine or a beer. However, if you wish to take a quiet and relaxing break where you enjoy your own company we will be happy to respect that.
We are situated on the edge of the Phoenix Park (the largest inner-city park in Europe). Our complex is modern and spacious with well manicured common areas. It is a very safe and secure area and easy to access by car, bus or train.
You should try to take a walk in the park if you have the time - you might even spot some deer. Or maybe take a walk along the banks of the Royal Canal.
There are nice places to eat within easy walking distance and also a number of pubs. There is also a local shop within our development and a larger supermarket a short walk away.
The city centre (O'Connell Street) is only 20 minutes away by bus/train. We have an excellent connection to the city centre by Dublin Bus numbers 37, 38, 38A, 39, 39A and 70. We are only three stops from the city centre on the Maynooth train line. Full directions are provided after booking in the automated email you will receive - PLEASE PRINT THEM OFF AND TAKE THEM WITH YOU.
We are only 10-15 minutes drive from Dublin Airport and we may be able to pick you up on your arrival (at a small extra charge) depending on your arrival date and time and our work hours. Otherwise, you can get to us from the airport by taking the 747 bus to the city centre and then taking the bus numbers above (or the train) to our place. More details provided in the booking confirmation email.
If you are taking a car, there is free parking available.
Smoking is permitted but only on the balcony. A continental style breakfast is included but you must help yourself. You can help yourself to tea or coffee whenever you wish.
Bedroom with double bed, drawer unit, side lockers with lamps and large built in wardrobe. Black out blinds.
It couldn't have been better as a first AirBnB experience. They are just the perfect hosts : kind, friendly and ready to give advises to visit the city. The apartment is very cosy and pleasant to live in. A A+ kinda BnB, not mentioning the chats on the balcony. I had a really good time honestly. Thank you guys !
Todo fue exactamente igual a lo que decia el anuncio, hasta la decoracion y la ubicacion de las cosas. Fueron muy amables, me ayudaron en todo y entendieron que estuviera poco y nada en casa dada mi desesperacion por conseguir casa en Dublin. Me gusto tanto su casa y el lugar, que alquile en el mismo complejo y ahora seremos vecinos! Compartimos buenas charlas en mis ratos en casa, asi que la verdad es q los super recomiendo!
Sehr zu empfehlen. Ich fühlte mich in dem Apartment sehr wohl. Es ist genau so wie von Joe & Marcin beschrieben. Während meines Aufenthalts waren Joe und Marcin verreist. Sie hatten aber alles optimal vorbereitet. Die Schlüsselübergabe erfolgte problemlos, die Wohnung war sehr sauber und top gepflegt und der Kühlschrank war mit diversen Nahrungsmitteln für das Frühstück perfekt ausgestattet. Nach meiner Ankunft haben mich Joe & Marcin angerufen, um sich nach mir zu erkundigen und nochmals zu betonen, dass ich mich ganz zu Hause fühlen sollte. In meinem Zimmer fand ich u.a. ein Willkommens-Schreiben mit Notfall-Nummern von Verwandten, einen Steckdosen-Adapter und zahlreiche Tipps für Unternehmungen rund um Dublin. Ich hatte eine tolle Zeit und hatte am Ende noch das Vergnügen Joe & Marcin kurz persönlich kennenzulernen. Jederzeit würde ich wieder bei ihnen buchen. DANKE!
This was my first Airbnb experience and thanks to Joe and Marcin, I must say it's SUPERB! They were extremely, incredibly welcoming and friendly. We arrived late around 10pm on a weekday and were very glad to be greeted with genuine smiles!
The memo they prepared for us to print out upon booking was very helpful as me and my boyfriend enjoyed the "leap card for visitor" that allowed us unlimited bus rides for 72 hours.
The apartment complex is easy to find from the airport with detailed directions given by the hosts. From the apartment, it takes about 20 -30 minutes into the city center by bus. I like how the apartment is not right in the city center so you get to see more of Dublin.
-Our room was modern, clean and cozy. The bed is perfect size for two people. Comfortable bed. Clean sheets.
-I like the fact that we have our own guest bathroom. The bathroom has ample space and a bathtub. It's even bigger than a lot of the hotels we've stayed at. Shower runs perfectly with hot water.
-Joe and Marcin prepared us bagels, cereals, fruits and juices for breakfast. We were able to help ourselves anytime we wanted breakfast.
-We also enjoyed the kitchen and the living room. Very spacious and comfortable.
Overall it was an incredible experience staying at Joe & Marcin's. We only got to spend one night together with Joe and Marcin, but I'll never forget the wine we shared and the lovely conversation we had!
Joe and Marcin are incredibly nice people. Their place is clean and they were extremely helpful!
About the Host, Marcin & Joe
We are two very easy going professional guys living and working in Dublin.
Marcin - late twenties, Polish, living in Dublin for over six years now. Fluent in Polish and English, with an understanding of Russian. Love theatre, movies, travel, music.
Joe - late thirties, Irish, have lived in a few different places around Ireland and abroad but living in Dublin full-time now for a number of years. Fluent in English only, I'm afraid, but have a basic knowledge of Gaelic (used to be fluent, but no longer) and have basic French. Also trying to learn Polish but with only limited success. Love theatre, movies, travel, music (all sorts), snowboarding.
We love to travel and between us we have been to many places over the years, including the UK, France, Germany, Poland, Spain, Portugal, Canary Islands, Italy, Turkey, Greece, Switzerland and New York.
We joined Airbnb on a trial basis but fell in love with the whole experience. We have hosted some really great guests and want to continue this great experience. We can accommodate either single visitors or couples so check out our place if you are interested in spending time in Dublin.
The photo of us with the parrots was taken when we were on holidays. We have no pets. Just thought we would put that in as many people have wondered if we have parrots or other pets.
Hope to chat and meet with you soon.
Marcin & Joe.
