Interaction with Guests
I like to interact with guests as much as they like and also as much as I can given I work outside the home
my neighbourhood has a village type atmosphere and yet is only twenty minutes walking ...away from all city attractions, theatre ...cinema etc.. I am quite near to some historical attractions such as Guinness and IMMA
luas (swift tram)-red line to tallaght The Square, the Civic Theatre etc. and to city centre in other direction includes Abbey Theatre which is the National Theatre also passes near the Italian Quarter and main Street O'Connell Street and goes right in to the O3 area at the Point..
Heuston Station within walking distance
Luas connects with Heuston and also to Connolly Station - one can get Dart to Seasides

Guinness and IMMA within walking distance
and as it is such a small city it is great to walk around.. always advised to bring a raincoat !
Other Things to Note
its a quiet house a DVD player and classic DVDs right beside the socket and ready to plug in.. also some classic videos!!! and modern dvds and books
I prefer non drinkers and non smokers-
It was a good overall experience. The host was very welcoming and helpful.
Imelda was very welcoming to her home I arrived a little early from when I had said I would but this didn't seem to be a problem. I didn't really see her for most of my stay but she was always very friendly. The location is great only 2 or 3 minutes away for the luas into town. The bed is also very comfortable I liked the collection of dvds and vhs tapes that were available.
Imelda has been very welcoming with me. She gave me also information about the city and what to do around! The location of the house is convenient because very close to the LUAS so that you can reach easily the city center and every place
She is a nice persone, in my time in her house he helps me with me visit in dublin. The problem she has a dirty house so far of the center and leave in a bad zone.
i am hurt by Daniels response - the cooker which is not part of the deal and which i allowed him to use as he seemed to be financially strapped was not as clean as it might have been if i was expecting it to be in use... i explained this to him jokingly saying " I only have the cooker as the kitchen came with the house!" the area is not a bad area and is quite clearly linked on my listing timewise it is about 20 min 30 min walk or luas or bus much quicker.. i am dissappointed that Daniel left such a bad review as he seemed to be enjoying himself...his lack of english was definitely a barrier.. also i am a she!!
Imelda is a very pleasant host. She left food and explained everything I needed to know about the house and the room. The neighborhood is outside of the hustle and bustle of downtown, but not too far via bus, the LUAS light rail, or a brisk walk.
I stayed 7 nights which was a little stressful. Imelda had a few rules, like don't open the bedroom curtains, and don't remove the rocks out of the bathroom sink. The building needs some maintenance. The location was fine.
that's a bit misleading... what Andrew means is the net curtains! of course I have no problem with the curtains being opened...
the rocks are decoration and of course most people would not have to be asked not to move them...(Andrew also put the mirror - quite a large one - on the floor!
in general Andrew was ok but he does like to move things around, books, curtains ..net...lace curtains... all houses need some form of maintenance... its an ongoing thing...
