About This Listing
A modern detached bungalow in an up and coming area of Dublin. Very close to the city centre, Croke Park stadium and the sea.
Oh hello there!
Our house is a detached bungalow that consists of:
-3 bedrooms: All with a double bed
-large living room - with a comfy couch area and a dining table that seats 6
-a well equipped kitchen and a small yard.
It looks like a small bungalow tucked away off the road but opens up to a large 1000 square detached home.
A nice road close to the centre of dublin. 15 mins walk to town, a bus stop 2 mins walk ..just outside the door! the luas (tram) is 10 mins walk away. 20 euro to airport in a taxi or 15 mins walk then a bus. close to clontarf strand, fairview park. near all the major sights!
We've got two dublin bike cards you can use lots of books and maps etc
we've got a nice big flat screen tv and super fast wireless and wired broadband for our guests, along with lots of movies on a hard drive just in case the weather isnt great!
Around the corner is the mud island community garden that we are members of, feel free to go around on a saturday or tuesday to meet the community, get your hands dirty and even earn some fruit / veg!
We will leave one room (the smallest one) locked with our personal belongings in it but everything else is available for your use!
Interaction with Guests
We will meet you with the keys and show you around on your arrival and we are always at the end of the phone / email / (website hidden) if you need help with anything.
We have lovely neighbours and the location is perfect with access to all the best spots in Dublin and to the main transport systems. It is a real inner city community steeped in history. Make sure to check out the walkway to clontarf where you can walk / cycle beside the sea all the way to bull island - bird sanctuary. If you're feeling brave you can even have a swim here, many do! The local pubs are legendary and some of the best italian food in Dublin is just across the road. There's also lovely deli's all close to hand.
Buses are right around the corner from the house with access either to city centre or the coast. We're 15 minutes walk from the city centre or a shorter walk to the Luas tram line and intercity train service.
We want all guests to feel at home in our home and to treat it with the same respect that they would treat their own home.
Smoking is not allowed inside but allowed outside in the garden / yard. thanks!
No surprise guests coming back after a night out either... When it comes to the question your place or mine... choose theirs!
The apmt we rented from Mick & Dee was exactly like in the description - more than meets the eye.
A very beautiful place to stay in a fantastic city. It made our trip even better than we expected it to be.
Thanks a lot again for the hospitality!
Lovely place, lovely hosts !! My friends and I really enjoyed our stay : we stayed there for 3 night and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
First Airbnb experience and thanks to Mick & Dee it’s been a real success !
The place was exactly like the description and pictures. Very clean, modern, and functional. We had everything we needed.
They were in touch at all times if needed. Thanks to them for their wealth of information and tips !
Location is good, 20 min walk to the center.
Would love to return next time I’m in Dublin!
C'était notre première expérience AirBnB et celle-ci fut totalement réussie !
Même si nous sommes arrivés tard le vendredi soir, Mick nous attendait et nous a accueillit chaleureusement !
Il nous a tout de suite mis à l'aise et nous a expliqué le fonctionnement des différents équipements de son logement.
Le logement était totalement conforme à nos attentes et à la description du site internet.
Nous avons passés 3 jours super à Dublin en grande partie grâce à ce logement !
Merci beaucoup Mick & Dee
Mick was waiting for us & gave a warm welcome. He gave us a full tour & explained everything with a few useful local tips which we made full use of. The cottage was as described and meet our needs perfectly. Everything worked as it should & the cottage was really well equipped.
This was my first Airbnb experience, and Mick and Dee have set the bar extremely high! They put me at ease, right from the first email response and answered every question I had and in an extremely quick fashion.
We arrived in Dublin very early in the morning, around 7am. Mick was already there waiting for us at the house, which is hugely appreciated after traveling all night across a 5 hour time difference. He even helped with the bags (actually, he did pretty much all the work) and made us coffee. They checked in throughout the trip, and even offered to drop by the house to help with a few things if necessary (not necessary, but again, the effort is appreciated).
The house itself was exactly as pictured and described. We loved their fun decor! Everything was clean, the beds were comfortable, and there was ample space to unpack and settle in. We didn’t end up cooking, but it looked like we would have had everything we needed. They welcomed us to use whatever they had, and it was an easy to walk to several stores for anything else. I forgot to pack electrical adapters, but there were several provided, along with tons of maps and guidebooks and suggestions. The location was convenient for walking to the city center and train stations, and bus stops were practically outside the door. It was peaceful and quiet, but provided easy access to all the action. Our cab driver from the airport had a little difficulty finding it, so just make sure you have directions ready!
Thank you, Mick and Dee, for a wonderful experience! I would not hesitate to book with you again or to recommend you to friends! Sorry we brought the snow with us!
Ahhh thanks for such a lovely review, you guys were fantastic guests and we're so glad you had a great time in Dublin and in our place. Also it's great you had a good first Airbnb experience too! we love it and cant imagine staying in hotels ever again (other than weddings etc). One tip though, next time you should arrive in your wedding dress just so your hosts can recognise you ;-)
Best of luck and come back to Ireland soon!
