I live in a very central location next to Kilmainham Jail and Museum of Modern Art (there is a stop at the jail for the hop on hop off sightseeing bus) also a 3 min walk to the Luas which brings you into the city centre. Just around the corner is a supermarket, coffee shop, bakery and pharmacy, it's also a short walk to the Guinness Visitors Centre.
I have a very comfortable double room available in my apartment which in a large, sunny 2 bed apartment in a modern apartment complex which is very quiet and secure. The apartment is warm and clean.

I enjoy welcoming people to my home and meeting people from around the world. I am happy to give people lots of local information about Dublin to make their stay an enjoyable one. I have guides books, maps and lots of tourist information available for guests.
Please note I sometime have a foster cat.
No smoking inside (possible on the balcony) be kind to neighbours, no loud noise after 23:00
Pauline is such a kind and gracious host. The property is ideally located and the bedroom is very comfortable. 10/10
Pauline is the perfect host and my stay was fabulous. From the great location less than 10 minutes walk from the Luas which will get you anywhere you would want to go, blocks from the hop on hop off bus stop, grocery, bakery, pizza and a pub just 5 minutes walk the location is great. The complex is gated and the building is secure.
Pauline is kind, interesting, smart and detailed. Her info folder gives you everything from turning on the tv to places to see. The little touches like cereal, homemade Irish soda bread, jams, teas, a hair dryer, guide books and hot water bottles for your bed all make you feel at home. She even made sure I had a number of a local taxi to get me to my tour bus. I could not have asked for anything else. Staying with Pauline was such perfection and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. You can't go wrong choosing Pauline and her place.
We really liked very much our weekend in Dublin and in Pauline's flat. She and Mimi( her adorable cat) were very friendly with us . Pauline was very kind to explain us where we should go for some shopping and to taste the local food;-))) we recommend her ;-))) the flat is very well situated next to the tram station. Thanks a lot!
What to say about the AirBnB experience that Pauline offers, that others haven't mentioned already. Not much I expect, judging from the rave reviews.
What stood out most for me, was the following.
In my experience, this apartment complex is one of the quietest I've ever stayed in. I was staying midweek, so it may liven up a bit at weekends, but I wouldn't be surprised to hear that it is always so quiet. A good night's sleep is pretty much guaranteed.
I have back injuries that cause constant pain, but I drifted off to sleep in the guest room, in no time at all.
Pauline is the consumate host. There if you need her, but not in your face. A lovely person to chat with and always helpful.
The apartment is very comfortably furnished and you ought to feel instantly at home.
As regards transport and location, more positives. Location is on a quiet street in a good area, but that has good transport into the city centre that takes about ten minutes or a little longer. The 123 bus stops right outside the apartment complex and goes straight into town via the Liberties, Guinness brewery, Trinity College etc. It may stop on O'Connell Street, but I can't recall.
The Luas tram system is about five minutes walk away, Suir Road stop and again, takes only 10-15 mins to get you to O'Connell Street. (Red Line)
For me, as I don't have my own pets and am a bit of a softie, the cherry on the cake was sharing the common areas of the apartment with THE sweetest little rescue tortoiseshell pussy cat, that Pauline was looking after for a few days. I said goodbye only yesterday with a heavy heart.
I've had many AirBnB experiences since AirBnB started up several years ago and they've been a bit of a mixed bag.
Staying with Pauline for a few days was one of my best AirBnB experiences to date, if not THE best.
Perfect location, great room, Pauline is a proper hostess!! Would highly recommend!
The flat is located in a quiet neighbourhood a few miles outside the city center of Dublin. The next train station to the city center is close to the flat, so it's no problem to get to the center of Dublin. The room is clean and very cosy and looks exactly like in the picture. Pauline gave us a very warm welcome and, because we we're arriving pretty late, shared her dinner with us. Moreover she is a very organized and well informed host. The breakfast wasn't opulent but fresh and absolutely sufficient. She also offered self-baked bread. We can really recommend to stay at Paulines house!
When you see an avalanche of positive reviews, folks, there must be a reason. Once again airbnb came through for us. Not only was Pauline's home and apt. complex lovely, but you never even knew she was there! I had some apprehensions about being in a shared environment, but boy, was I wrong. It was a great way to start our Dublin trip, and we even had full access to the kitchen and a lap top computer, which really came in handy when we had to make last minute reservation changes. A great, comfortable bed, and a very quiet location made everything else perfect. We were right near the jail, which is a must-see site, and all the rest of Dublin was accessible by the tram. It was a great alternative to being right in the heart of the city, but close enough that you were there in just a few minutes. All this for a very reasonable price, which was also most appreciated. I would stay there again in a heartbeat!!

I am Irish and have lived in Dublin for the past number of years. I currently work for an Irish NGO. I have been lucky to have worked in many parts of the world (USA, Australia, NZ, Europe) as well as visiting many more (Africa, Asia and South Pacific) I enjoy travelling and also meeting new people. My hobbies are sailing, running and voluntary work for an animal welfare charity. I look forward to meeting my guest and giving them lots of local information about Dublin.
