About this listing

I have lived here in Smithfield for ten years and know the area very well and always happy to give local advice about hidden gems.

The space

This stunning duplex appartment with private balcony and views of old Distillery and ancient Market Square. provides comfort, style and convenience in one the most vibrant and convenient areas of Dublin.
Own room with double bed and adjacent shared bathroom with shower over bathroom and stunning views over Dublin towards the Wicklow Mountains. Built-in wardrobe and chest of drawers, tv and dvd player and wifi internet.
Availability of adjacent further single bedroom to sleep the third guest sharing the same bathroom if your group includes a third person . Shared use of fully equipped kitchen with breakfast bar for eating, dishwasher, washing machine and nespresso coffee maker.
Magnificent views from the every room in the 10th floor appartment which floods with light from floor to ceiling windows. Property is situated in a secure apartment block with concierge service 24/7 and elevator. DUBLIN CITY CENTRE is within easy walking distance along the LIffey Quays. Supermarket, Coffee shop, restaurants, pizzeria, pub, medical centre, cinema and LUAS are 1 min away from the apartment. Walk to all the major attractions in Dublin including Temple Bar, Trinity College, the Guiness Factory, Jamiesons Brewery and Grafton Street or jump on the luas (tram) or the open top bus which are both only 200m away and explore further afield.

Guest access

I am at work during the week and am happy for guests to chill out in the appartment during he day and use the kitchen to make lunch and supper. However, once I am home later in the evening my listing is better suited to those who are happy to chill-out relatively peacefully or have plans out and about in town.

Interaction with guests

I like to interact with my guests and love to see them having a good time in and around Dublin and hear how stuff went. However, I would hope that that were independent travellers as I am often busy working and would respect some degree of privacy and space and of course that would be reciprocal. Please note that sometimes I will not be at home for several days but will always leave full instructions and contact numbers for any unforeseen problems .I don't have any issues with alcohol and enjoy a glass of wine or beer with meals I find it unacceptable for guests to sit around and drink a whole load of alcohol in my home.

House Rules

I am not so much into having an internal code of conduct. Plus, I believe the airbnb website is based on mutual respect.

So that even if I have nice furniture which I am happy to let you enjoy, i just ask in return not to damage it and keep the place in the same state as you found it. Please keep your own valuables and effects in your room and not left around the place. Of course you are welcome to put all your food in the fridge and kitchen cupboards etc. Please wash your stuff up pretty soon after using it - so its not left around in the kitchen (especially not overnight)

Smoking not allowed in doors but there is a covered balcony with cafe style chair and table to smoke outdoors if you need.

Please no guests allowed to visit (even if they are your friends) prior to my approval: if you want guests to stay over then please note there is another guest room available to book through air bnb as usual.

I am often out of town for many days at a time, and operate on a trust basis, so that people can feel at home. Please note that I have two rooms for rent on air bnb so there might be someone else around

Beyond her extra pragmatic location if you're taking the Aer Link bus in/out of the city from Dublin airport, Alison's space is so nice with all the amenities you'll need. She even has a U.K. power adapter in your room if you forget that it's not like the EU outlets. The view is outstanding, on level nearly with the Guinness Gravity Bar. It's just a stone's throw from plenty of great local sightseeing and food joints. And when you return back to Alison's you feel at perfect ease, knowing that she has created a safe, comfortable and reliable room in her own home for you to relax and hunker in for the night. We were a couple, and the comfy bed, next to a huge window and our own tv, was great. Kudos, Alison!

Alison's place was beautiful and such a lovely place to stay for the few days I was in Dublin. Very clean, comfortable, and quiet (so long as you don't mind an occasion tiny bit of street noise, which I don't). I would absolutely stay here again, and highly recommend to anyone coming to Dublin. Thanks, Alison!

Alison was great and the flat was very nice! It was a great location in walking difference to everything but also pretty quiet at night. Would love to stay again :-)

We never had the chance to meet Alison over the weekend but that didn't hinder the amount of communication we still had with her. If you love a good view this place is perfect and the location in general is fab, with loads of places to go right on the doorstep!

I am a dentist working in Trinity College Dublin, Ireland. I am English and moved to this wonderful city 7 years ago so I know it pretty well by now. I also have a home in Turkey and travel there as often as I can to pick up some sun....although the weather in ireland is better than its reputation suggests and I have very many sunny mornings drinking coffee on my balcony with great views as far as the Wicklow Mountains and the Dublin coastline
I love to travel and when I am visiting somewhere - I prefer to spend time getting to really know somewhere rather than passing though it, and Dublin certainly deserves more than a passing visit and has a lot more to offer than Temple Bar and the Guiness Factory!
I speak Spanish fluently, have a smattering of french, german and turkish - but I can usually find a way to communicate and connect with people wherever I am in the world. I enjoy live music, theatre and film. I am happy wandering or traveling alone - but also love to spend time with my dear friends and meeting new people.
I can't live without good coffee, an internet connection, my dearest friends and family ...... and the freedom to travel and get away from all of the above from time to time ;)
I enjoy traveling including planning trips as often as possible - but once I am away I try to be spontaneous and flexible and take things as they come.....whats's it like to have me as a guest........well hassle free I hope;)
....what's it like to stay at my place - well I would say its relaxed and easy going, with as much or as little conversation and privacy as you choose....
