short or long term in Cosy Home

House - Private room · Terenure, Dublin 6W, Ireland

The Space

A lovely simple single room in a clean bright friendly house. The house is a 1930s period property and would be fairly typical of the type of house that a lot of Irish people live in,. I work from home a lot so will be on hand to help you out with any questions.You will have the run of the house, and will be given a door key so you can come and go as you wish,and when you are not out exploring the city you are welcome to use the kitchen to cook in, or the sitting room to curl up by the open fire with our old dog and slightly mad cat ,and a good book, or watch some telly or avail of the WiFi .If the weather is fine you can sit out in the very private garden and even have a BBQ if you like. Located about 4 kms from the city center ,in a quiet residential area, which has late night supermarkets, a post office, a chemist and parks on the doorstep and a selection of restaurants and local pubs, about 15 minutes away . Or if you want to pop into the city, the bus stops just at the end of our little cul de sac and it will have you there in approx 25 mins .The room itself has many little extras, like a kettle, tea, coffee and biscuits if you fancy a late night snack ,maps of the area so you won't get lost, practical things like, adapter plugs, an elec blanket to keep you cosy , towels, extra bedding , pillows,. Breakfast is included in the price,I will provide a selection of breakfast items i.e. tea, coffee, brown bread, eggs yogurt ,honey, fruit and you are welcome to cook it at any time you want , so if you wish to have breakfast at 7am or 3pm that is just fine with me . I am happy to do either short term or long term , just let me know what suits, my house is a normal Dublin house, it is not a hotel or hostel, I try really hard to make you feel at home , and to give as much info about getting around Dublin as possible...... So we look forward to your visit..... Really you will not get better value any where else ...GREAT VALUE !!!!!!

  • Barbara was amazing!! Her house is located right across from a park with market, pharmacy and restaurants a short walk. The house itself is simple, clean and spacious with a beautiful garden to enjoy your coffee or tea. Washing machine is a BIG PLUS! Barbara has a precious dog named Feebee, she's so playful, that i really enjoyed taking to the park for a nice walk. Barbara always had the refrigerator and pantry FILLED to the brim with food. And there was plenty of tea and coffee around to suit.

    Also, I rented a car and parked just outside of Barbara's without any fuss. Her house is located about 6 km from Dublin city center. It took me less that 10 minutes to drive into town where the Guinness Storehouse is located.

    I would recommend anyone to say with Barbara. She was an excellent host and she exceeded all of my expectations for an AirBnB experience. This was my first stay aswell!! It couldn't have worked out better!!

    Cheers Barbara!!

  • I truly had such a great stay at Barbara's place! I would truly recommend this place to any of my close friends or family. She is so welcoming and was always there to help me figure out how to get into the city center or to my next place in Ireland. She really went above and beyond in making my stay comfortable and easy. Plus, she is just very nice to talk to and be around! The breakfast offering was so great and my room was lovely. Everything was very clean and my bed was so comfortable. Thank you for an aboslutely amazing stay!

  • My stay with Barbara was very enjoyable from start to finish! It was great to be picked up from the bus station, especially as it was the middle of the night and Barbara waited up for me. Barbara is a gracious host and made me feel very welcome in her home and in her country!

  • Barbara is by far the best AirBnB host I've had! She's so friendly and welcoming, and became a friend within minutes. I would highly recommend anyone staying in Dublin to stay with her if you can!

  • I stayed for my semester abroad three month at Barbaras house. Barbara made me feel at home from the first day on and helped me at the beginning with informations about Dublin and when i had any question, she helped whatever it was.

    The room i was staying in was perfect and really comfortable. The whole house was absolute nice and i was allowed to use the garden, the comfortable living room and the perfect kitchen whenever i wanted, while i was living there. All other people who were living there and who i have met while i was living there were really nice and helpful.

    Barbaras house is located in a beautiful little street and its nice and quiet. There is bus stop just next in front of her house and two buses are driving directly to the city. The next supermarkets are 50m away and always open until 10pm.

    I always got fresh blankets and towels plus i could use the washing mashine whenever i wanted. Barbara always provided nice food for the breakfast and everything is well organized!

    I miss the time at her house and i will definitely come back for a holiday !!!!!

    Ich wohnte während meines Auslandssemester für drei Monate in Barbaras Haus. Barbara gab mir von Anfang an das Gefühl bei ihr zu Hause zu sein und half mir in den ersten Tagen mich in Dublin zu recht zu finden.

    Mein Zimmer war sehr bequem und ordentlich und sauber mit einem super Schreibtisch zum arbeiten.
    Das ganze Haus war absolut nett und ich durfte den Garten, das gemütliche Wohnzimmer und die perfekte Küche zu benutzen wann immer ich wollte, während ich dort lebte. Alle anderen Personen die ich in der Zeit in dem Haus von Barbara kennen gelernt habe waren sehr nett und ich habe viele neue Freunde dazu gewonnen.

    Barbaras Haus liegt in einem schönen kleinen Straße und es ist sehr schön und ruhig. Es gibt eine Bushaltestelle direkt vor ihrem Haus und zwei Busse fahren direkt in die Stadt. Die nächsten Supermärkte sind 50m entfernt und immer offen bis 10 Uhr.

    Ich bekam immer frische Handtücher und Decken und konnte die Waschmaschine benutzen, wann immer ich wollte. Im Kühlschrank waren immer genügend gute Dinge für ein ausgewogenes Frühstück.
    Barbara ist einfach immer hilfsbereit und ermöglicht so gut wie Alles!
    Ich vermisse die Zeit in ihrem Haus, und ich werde auf jeden Fall wieder für einen Urlaub wiederkommen!

    Liebe Grüße Moritz

Hi I'm Barbara, and I am a great fan of AIRBNB , I first used it myself to find accommodation in Brooklyn a while ago, and it was such a good experience I decided to become a host, and now I am a total convert. I have been letting out a room on either a long or short term basis for many years , but just love the Airbnb way of doing things. My favorite things are travel and anything art/design/craft related, My background is as a theatre designer, but these days I run a small home based business making hand made craft kits for kids,.........Planet Purple Kids.........I love meeting new people from different parts of the world, and would like you to feel at home here. ....If you are new to airbnb and maybe a bit nervous, go on try it , really it is so much better than any standard bnb or hostel
