The Space

Gleann Oir Double Room.
Breakfast is not provided. Bedroom is large with a double bed, bedside lockers and a desk. It comes with its own private ensuite bathroom in a period 1930s house. The house is 10 mins bus ride or drive to city centre or a 30 mins walk. The walk is along the seafront and is rather scenic and refreshing.
We have wireless internet. The house is a large 7 bed house but we only let out one bedroom to guests. Because we are a large big house, you can have your privacy if that is what you want. The street is a quiet tree lined street with many houses from the turn of the last century. The neighborhood is popular with walkers and you will meet lots of people out walking alone or with their dogs at all hours of the day and night. The most attractive aspect of our house is that we have a sea view but are a few streets away from the main sea front, so we have the view without the traffic. Our street is very quite. I am a mature student at the local university studying digital media. My husband works in insurance. We have two boys aged 17 and 20. In the past, we lived in London for 10 years. When I was single, I lived in New York for 4 years. Mairead

Mature Student with two grown up boys. I work in IT. I recently went back to college as a mature student to complete a degree in mathematics and a masters in Digital Media. My husband works in insurance. I so enjoy meeting new people and having interesting conversations with them. I particularly like house-guests that are self-sufficient and like to get on with exploring the best Ireland has to offer.
