A tastefully furnished period house (built around 1900), in a quiet cul-de-sac, two miles from the city centre.
There are two bedrooms available, each suitable for one or two people. Groups of four can be accommodated - there is a listing for each of the rooms - similar photographs - and groups of four can be accommodated by booking both listings. Each room has a king size bed- which is exceptionally comfortable. The rooms are spacious and very calm - ideal for relaxation and rest. All the furniture is period, but the room has a nice modern feel to it. They've both got lovely linens, and plenty of fresh towels.
Two bus routes serve the main road, which is just around the corner from the house - the 16 bus from Dublin Airport (the journey takes about 50 minutes) is one of the routes. and the same bus runs only 10 minutes to the City Centre.
The City Centre (Grafton Street - Trinity College) is a 20min to a half hour walk from the house. Historic Dublin - St. Patrick's Cathedral, Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin Castle, Chester Beatty Library, National Gallery, are all within easy reach - either by bus route or walking.
I am involved with the Dublin International Piano Competition - an event that takes place every three years - so I'm deeply involved in offering stellar hospitality to international travellers and how to showcase the best that Dublin has to offer. I'm very aware of the standard and level of the comfort that people need while they're staying.
I offer breakfast - muesli, yoghurt, fresh homemade Irish brown bread, croissants, tea and coffee.
The sheltered sunny garden is a calm and restful place to have breakfast on a warm morning. One of the bedrooms looks over the garden.
I also have an information pack on Dublin, including map, city guide and information on day trips to Glendalough, Galway and the Cliffs of Moher, Cork, and Belfast.
I am delighted to help any guests to plan their days in Dublin, and if they are travelling to the rest of Ireland, I can also offer advice and assistance.
Hair dryer / Docking station / WiFi / on street visitor parking.
I would ask guests to be mindful of the security of the house - to ensure that the hall door is double locked when leaving the house, and the door should also be double locked at night.
If you open any windows, please close them before leaving the house.
Smoking is not permitted inside the house - if you wish to smoke, please do so in the garden. Food is not permitted in the bedrooms.
Please refrain from putting luggage on the beds - a luggage rack is provided in the bedrooms.
This is my home, I enjoy and I hope you will too.
Adrienne is just a lovely host. She made me feel very welcome. It was very nice to chat with her. The room I stayed in was really nice and the bed very comfortable. Further the accommodation was very clean. Adrienne offered me various things for breakfast including brown bread, homemade yogurt, granola and fruit. The area is just nice too and there's a very good public transport link. At the same time it is close enough to walk into the city. The two nights I spent at Adrienne's house were a very pleasant experience and I'd definitely stay again when I am around Dublin.
Adrienne is super!!! She welcomed us in the best way. Everything was perfect: room, breakfast and cleaning. The place was very close to the city centre and also the stop bus. A very lovely week end thanks to Adrienne. I hope to come back soon.
Bye Stefania and Raffale
Adrienne und Dara haben uns herzlich willkommen geheißen und sind sehr hilfsbereit und freundlich gewesen. Wir haben im Haus von Dara übernachtet. Leider war das Bad nicht sauber und das Zimmer wurde während des Aufenthaltes auch nicht gereinigt.
I have read the review from Carina. I do not accept that the bathroom was not clean - it was cleaned thoroughly for the guests arrival. There seems to be some confusion re the servicing of the room - I have never had the issue before - all my airbnb guests have attended to their rooms themselves, and during any airbnb stay, the bedroom never needed cleaning. The room was in order and spotless on arrival. In over 100 reviews, this is the only time this issue has arise. I would refer prospect guests to the other reviews for my listings. It is regrettable that Carina feels this way about the listing.
The most welcoming, wonderful and comfortable of experiences I have ever had on Airbnb. Adrienne and Dara go above and beyond to make you feel welcomed into their home, as well as helping you with plenty of maps, advice and directions to the hotspots of Dublin.
The rooms are beautiful. The house spotless. Everything you need is right there at your fingertips. I can't recommend them enough. Thankyou Adrienne! :)
I certainly hope to be back again someday (if not for another wonderful chat and that beautifully fresh baked bread).
Dara is an excellent host.Helpful at any time and open minded.We had a fantastic time during our short visit in Dublin.We got to know each other a bit during the morning breakfast.
The room was clean and cosy.The location is a stroll away from the city center.
I would highly recommend his place to anybody visiting Dublin.
Adrienne is an amazingly helpful, kind, knowledgeable and cultural hostess.
She went out of her way to make our stay in the Mews outstanding. Her breakfasts Mews apartment is very tastefully furnished, comfortable and cosy, a 20minute bus ride from Dublin centre, and situated in a tranquil, period zone of south Dublin. Her breakfasts, from homemade breads, yogurts, and jams- a mouth-watering experience.
No hesitation whatsoever to recommend this to anyone who wants to enjoy an unforgettable

Adrienne is a native of Dublin, with a good knowlege of the city. I live in a great area, very near town. I am involved in many areas of life, used to interacting with people and love to host visitors. I have travelled extensively in France and Australia, as well as many other European countries, as well are travelling to New York and London regularly. I have a great interest in current affairs, music, and the theatre. Adrienne is involved in a number of committees and is on the Executive of the Dublin International Piano Competition,which takes place every three years. Young pianists from all over the world come to Dublin to compete in the Competition, and Adrienne works closely with the competitors during the two weeks of the Competition.
