Lovely double attic room with TV, chest of drawers and a brand new bed and matress. The bathroom with electric power shower will be shared with others. You are welcome to use the rest of the house, including the front and back garden. I have cable TV and Wifi. Parking is also available. I have just installed a downstairs shower room
The area is very nice and quiet. There is a a nice pub across the road from us that has traditional Irish music Wednesdays and Saturdays.
There is also a large supermarket and some good restaurants nearby.
I am located near the Dublin City University, 20 minutes from the O2 arena, 20 mins the Croke Park DCU and 15 minutes to the airport.
Bus wise the 16A from the airport will take you to the end of my road. And there are plenty of buses into the Dublin centre which take about 20 minutes.
There are many places of interest in and around Dublin including many castles, museums, art galleries, stately homes, royal palaces, zoos, gardens and theme parks.
wifi parking and kitchen can be used for light refreshments only no major cooking

We stayed here for St. Patty's Day weekend and are glad we did. Margaret and her husband were both very nice and welcoming. The room was clean and the bed was comfy. It was very close to the bus stop and we were about to get into town for festivities easily. Margaret is very helpful and helped us book dinner reservations and a tour to the Cliffs. We felt very comfortable and would stay here again if we ever return to Ireland.
This was our first experience using airbnb... It also may be our last. We had booked for two nights but ended up going to a hotel for the second night .
Firstly the room we were offered was not the room advertised. We were given a very, very basic room on the second floor, not the attic.
Secondly, when we awoke in the morning we had noticed the heating had been turned off, despite the fact that the outside temperature had dropped to -3°C.
Finally, this was the so called "straw that broke the camels back". My husband was getting changed in the morning and noticed something under the edge of the bed. Upon further inspection, which meant touching the item, he noticed that it was a dirty pair of men's underwear.
Two very friendly people who were always willing to chat and make us feel welcome. Nice suburban neighborhood with a few stores and a bar close-by.
Margaret and Gord were wonderful hosts. Informative, hospitable and kind, they were the ideal hosts for a genuine Irish experience. The room was clean and comfortable. Each morning toast and/or butter, yogurt, and tea were provided. With traffic, it usually took about 25-40 mins to get to downtown Dublin by bus which was conveniently located near the house (less than 2 mins). Overall, is definitely recommend staying with Margaret and Gord if you'd really like to get know genuine Ireland and it's hospitable people. There is no shortage of conversation :)
Je suis allé chez Margaret pour deux nuits avec ma copine et nous avons été très bien accueilli, malgré le fait que j'arrivais tard le soir (minuit) et je repartais très tôt le jour de mon départ (4 heures du matin).
Elle a également pris soin de réserver un taxi pour mon départ.
Je recommande grandement.
Great location, near to bus stops for city center and airport. The room was small but clean. Also the bathroom was clean. Margaret and their family were very kind.
