Please read this description before booking.
I offer a room in my apartment which is located right in the city center for a price that it is lower than any hostel. Location it is just amazing as all of my guest said. Please do not book it if you are not willing to give 5 star when in your review for the price.
I do not accept requests from those without a pic on the profile or without any verification.
I have a specific check in/out times.
I will try to accommodate your needs only if you give me times of your preferred arrival/departure when sending your booking request. In exchange you should rate the flexibility in the review.
As I will trust you to share my space please be so kind to leave a review first. That will help not only me but the community we both belong to.
I have a cat so if you are allergic this is not a place you might consider.
This is one bedroom apartment where I offer my room and I use the living room pull out bed at night.
The room is quiet, clean and comfortable for two adults.
Bathroom is spacious and clean. I have complimentary toiletries for my guests free of charge. Even a new toothbrush if you need one.
Hair dryer and Iron are available.
Fresh and new bedlinen and towels.
Fully equipped kitchen with complimentary items for your breakfast. Just clean the tools after your finished.
Adaptor in the room.
For anything else please ask. Although this is not an hotel I want my guest to feel comfortable while staying with me sharing my space.
If you have any issue please don't blame my cat in your review.
Recently I had a bunch of sunflower in a vase which turned quite smelly and a guest in her review blamed the cat's food for that.
Just let me know what it is bothering you and I promise to do my best to help. It is not honest to have a problem and mention it only in the review.
This is my apartment therefore it is decorated to my tastes and this is the essence of airbnb by living the local!
I know that inside each of us there is the nasty shadow of Gordon Ramsey looking for hell everywhere so if you have few drops of his bad blood inside of you don't book my room. I would like to share my space with someone that can appreciate the super central location, the fair price, all the freebies i have for my guests, the fast wifi and so on.
I am also super flexible with your check in and out times but if your flight is delayed please give me a call or send a text since I am not a full time concierge.
airbnb is about sharing, belonging and not just only to get a better price on a room.
I use the living room as my bedroom at night. The door will be closed and from the main door you will have direct access to the bathroom and the room.
I have a cat so if you are allergic this apartment will not suit you.
The room, the kitchen the bathroom, the living room during the day and the utmost central location in Dublin for a price you cannot beat.
I have tons of toiletries for you to use and also free stuff for your breakfast.
Interaction with Guests
I will be always available to help you, to have a chat but of course I will not push you to have a conversation every single second.
Temple Bar, Trinity College, O'Connell Street, Capel Street the new vibrant Chinatown in Dublin. Grafton Street for your posh shopping, St Stephen Green for your jogging, Henry Street to shop until you drop.... O'Connell Station, Heuston Station

Awful experience. I was flexible with your times so I had to be flexible with my previous host. If you want to have access straight away to your room please book an hotel. I made everything clear so you could change accomodation if that was not fine with you. All the best.
Sonia was lovely and friendly on my arrival to her flat in Dublin. She offered my a cup of tea and is very willing to help. The room is pleasant, the bed is comfortable, but there can be some noise from the trams that go past outside.
The location is fantastic though. It's in the centre of town and very close to attractions and Temple Bar district.
Overall, a lovely experience. Thanks Sonia!
Sonia is really really nice, helpfull, and she Gives good advised. When i was at home i felt like her friend. Thanks you so much for this unforgottable week see you soon i hope.
By the way, her cat is cute and very smart....
Sonia made me feel very welcome and was friendly and very helpful with information about Dublin. Her flat is very clean and tidy and the bed very comfortable. The area was fine with lots of pubs and cafes. The trains did keep we awake for a while at night, but my home is in a very quiet, rural area, and it took a while for me to acclimatise.
My wife and I only stayed a day here but Sonia (and her friendly cat WeeWen) made us feel very welcome and was very accommodating. She even got us a little something for our belated honeymoon/anniversary! Everything in the room itself was clean and well maintained. The location is great as well. It was a short walk from the airport shuttle stop to her place, and just across the river (which is practically at the doorstep) is the main Temple Bar area, as well as other nice restaurants and shopping areas even closer by. Sonia gave us a great start to our trip!
Sonia was very helpful and sweet. She gave me a bunch of helpful info for places to check out in Dublin. The room was cozy and clean and the apartment location was just as stated, super central!
Sonia was very friendly and accommodated, same as her lovely cat! The location was perfect to easily walk to anywhere in the city but not right in the middle of busiest touristy area, which was a plus for me. The room was very spacious and clean, and the neighborhood was safe and convenient. Thanks Sonia!
