Awesome! I had a very pleasant stay by Alwyn. Thank you very much for your very warm welcome.
Nice quiet street, comfortable bed, clean uncluttered room; Alwyn very welcoming and made a lovely breakfast :)
Unfortunately my car broke down days before I was due to be in Dublin to see my visiting sister which resulted in an expensive bill and me being unable to attend. I explained this to the host who was understanding and said that she would help me out by allowing me to cancel at short notice with no charge, however no refund was received. I've not contested this as clearly I was in breach of our agreement.
The hosts communication was very good throughout.
Staying at Alwyn's was my first airbnb experience, and my four days in Dublin couldn't have been nicer. If you read the other reviews posted here you'll see that folks like staying at Alwyn's place. She was welcoming and relaxed in a way that put me at ease, and I felt very comfortable sharing her place. My room was super comfy, and I slept better there than I had in ages. The shower, too, was the best I'd had after two months on the road. She was available for whatever I needed whenever I needed it, and didn't mind waking up at 4:15 am the morning I was leaving (I set the alarm for an hour earlier than I needed it and she didn't mind a bit!), and she even gave me breakfast to get me on the road which I really appreciated. Blessington Basin, the lovely pond she lives on, has ducks and swans and is surrounded by trees for a wonderful and quiet bit of nature in the middle of Dublin. Her place is a ten or twenty minute walk to everything you want. I will return to Dublin in November and hope to stay with Alwyn again. Don't miss the opportunity to meet Jake, a friendly fellow who loves his belly rubbed. All in all, I left having had a really positive airbnb experience, thanks to Alwyn, and I expect to use it in the future quite a bit.
I had the priviledge of being hosted by Alwyn and Jake (mighty Jack Russel Terrier, good mannered, excellent at fetching, does not relinquish ball easily-can be bribed to do so with chicken and/or persistant petting) on a lighting half-day trip to Dublin, which deserves a lot better.The area is both close to the city center, a pleasant 10-min. walk and also very close to the route to the airport and the bus stop to it, again, about a 10min (website hidden) app.the same distance ample opportunity to buy food and other necessities. The neighbourhood is safe and very quiet, Alwyn is really easygoing and I had all the time in the world to get used to the surroundings and tone down a bit from the trip.All in all a very pleasant stay, would gladly visit again.
This was my second time staying w Alwyn and it was as lovely as the first time I stayed. Alwyn was really helpful and accommodating. :)
This is a great room, lovely and cosy and suitable for exploring the city. Alwyn is a fantastic host, very lovely lady and even made me breakfast in the morning and lent me her hairdryer which was great! Location is within walking distance to the town centre, but if you don't fancy the 15-20 min walk into town (one straight road) then there are plenty of buses nearby. there is also a nearby bus stop that takes you directly to the airport. Overall a great stay and for the price, i think it is highly recommended. Would stay there again. Thanks Alwyn!
