The Space

A lovely bright clean twin room suits one person or two people , in a friendly Dublin house. This room would ideally suit somebody looking for a long term let . 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 will be here to get you started , I also make short trips to the West of Ireland a lot so sometimes you and my other guests will have the house to yourselves.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 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 supermarkets, a post office, a chemist, and parks on the doorstep and a selection of restaurants and local pubs about 15 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, lots of books to peruse ,maps of the area so you won't get lost, practical things like an electric blanket to keep you cosy, towels, extra bedding , pillows,. Breakfast is included in the price ,I will provide lots of breakfast items i.e tea, coffee, bread,eggs , yogurt, honey etc, and you are welcome to cook it yourself at any time you want, so if you fancy breakfast at 7am or 3pm that is just fine, ...... So we look forward to your visit ..............Note my house is a normal Dublin house, it is not a hotel or hostel, and this is not an ensuite situation, I try really hard to make you feel at home and to give you as much info about getting around Dublin as possible....I am very happy to do long term as well as short, so if you think that this would suit let me know...regards barbara

Your Host



Dublin, Ireland · Member since July 2012

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 in theatre design and the craft industry , but these days I am taking time out to decide that to do with the next part of my life !! 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
