About this listing

Welcome to my home! This comfortable double bed is right in the heart of the city and is centrally located in a quiet area of Temple Bar. My home is minutes from most key sights, with Trinity College and Grafton Street an easy 7 minute walk away.

The space

This is a great double bed, private room in the heart of Temple Bar, but on the quiet end! Everything in Dublin City Centre is no more than a five or 10 minute walk away. All the major transport hubs such as Train stations, Luas Tram and Bus stops to all parts of Dublin are within very easy reach. The AirLink bus from Dublin airport stops almost at our front door!

Wireless internet is included, as are multiple iPod/iPhone chargers and powered speakers. multiple plug converters for plug types from all around the world. There is also a large LCD TV with a wide range of channels in the living room.

We provide all bedclothes and towels and there is a washer and dryer if you wish to freshen up your clothes during your stay, free of charge. There is also a hairdryer and plug adapters to use in the room if you wish. You will have exclusive use of your own bathroom which has a shower and a full sized bath.

As there are over 200 restaurants and cafes within a 10 minute walk from the apartment you won't be short of places to eat! If you wish to cook for yourself the there are also full kitchen facilities in the apartment.

You essentially have all of Dublin city at your feet when you stay with me. You will have no need for transport of any kind to get around the city and can easily walk to a huge number of cultural and tourist spots.

On confirmation all guests receive a 1,000 word document with lots of hints and tips, including the best way to get from the airport, suggestions for things to do and see, along with a list of great places to eat.

Guest access

You will have access to living room with TV/Cable/DVD. You will also have full access to the kitchen and cooking facilities if you wish. There is also a washing machine and clothes dryer in the kitchen if you need it, for which there is no charge.

Interaction with guests

The meeting point is usually the Bittersweet Cafe (07:00hrs to 19:00hrs) which is 30 yards/metres up the hill from Airlink bus stop number 10. After 19:00hrs you will be met in the Legends Bar with is right across from the bus stop. From there you will be brought up to the apartment. You will also be provided with a personalised map which will give you an in-depth overview of where to visit and eat in the immediate vicinity of the apartment.

Other things to note

LATE ARRIVALS: Please note that as it can take up to 2 hours to get to the apartment from the airport, the latest arrival at the apartment that I can normally accommodate is 20:00 hrs. Please check with me if you know you will be arriving after this time.

EARLY CHECK-INS: Early check-ins are welcome (particularly suited for early landing trans-Atlantic flights). For those making use of this please bear in mind that my previous nights guests do not normally check-out until around 11:00hrs. The early check-in allows you drop your luggage, get some hints and tips and to then head out to undertake some early sightseeing.

LATE CHECK-OUTS: Late Check-outs are never a problem. If a new guest is arriving on the day you leave then you are welcome to leave your luggage in the front room, take the keys with you, and return at time that is suitable for you to make your onward journey, free of charge.

PROFILE PICTURE: As an added security measure I also do not take bookings from guests who have no profile picture, or whose picture is of something that is obviously not them.

This is my home and I run a relaxed and easy apartment, but as we are in an apartment complex there is a requirement that noise is kept to a minimum after 10pm.

For security reasons I only accept guests who have been reviewed by other Airbnb hosts.

We do not allow pets and smoking is also not allowed inside the apartment, although there is an open air balcony just outside the front door for those need a cigarette every now and then :-)

The apartment is not suitable for young children, and not ideal for children over 12. Please contact me first if you are planning to bring children with you on your trip.

Other than these small things you can essentially treat this great space as your own home.

Dave is a photographer. He displays lots of his photos which gives a great atmosphaere in the apartment. He rents out 2 bedrooms which is not obvious in his ad. One room is really for one person only as the bed is 120 cm, even if he advertises the room for 1-2 people. We enjoyed our stay however in his apartment, we stayed for 5 days and had 3 different couples sharing with us staying in the other room, a constant change was going on. It is an apartment bloc - probably half the aoartments are rented out to day visitors.

Dave keeps a great house, with a terrific location just close to Temple Bar.

We loved our stay at this apartment. Dave is an incredible host, very attentive and nice to talk, he was also patient with our 6 months baby. The apartment's location is ideal to visit all Dublin, and also near the airport stop. The room has everything anyone will need for a trip in Dublin. We totally recommend it!

From start to finish, Dave has been the perfect host. As soon as I booked, Dave was quickly in touch with a wealth of information - from the details about check in etc to airport transfers and tourist information. Dave was really welcoming, friendly and helpful throughout the stay but we were given our privacy and space. The apartment itself is in a perfect location - just a couple of minutes walk from Temple Bar with lots of bars and restaurant, however we didn't find it noisy in the apartment. Its clean, tidy and the room is a good size for two people. We've had a great time and would like to thank Dave for being such a wonderful host!

Dave was the best host you could ask for and his place was in a wonderful part of Dublin--everything right outside your door! We had a quick, action-packed trip and he made everything so much easier and stress-free. We loved speaking with him and hearing his suggestions on where to go! Dave really enhanced our Dublin experience!

Dave User Profile

I am from Dublin, Ireland but have spent quite a bit of time in Kansas, USA, and have travelled extensively since I was a teenager. As an experienced traveller I know what it is that is most precious to those who find themselves in foreign cultures; a clean bed, a welcoming host, some insights into where the locals go to eat and drink. I have taken all these thoughts and combined them into an experience that I love to have in my own travels.

I am a founder member of the Dublin Host Ambassador Group for Airbnb. Our group advises them of improvements we feel will enhance the whole Airbnb experience and we also direct new hosts on the road to creating positive memorable guest interactions.

While I am always pleased to meet people from any corner of the world, I have to admit that I have an immense fondness for Americans, this comes out of great experience I had living there when I was younger and for the huge amount of support and encouragement I received from some many Americans over so many years. I have not yet an American that I did not like!

I have also made many visits to Germany, Austria and Switzerland and enjoy interacting with guests from that neck of the woods. Please bear in mind though, that my German speaking skills extend to being able to order a beer and a donut :-)

I am a photographer who runs his own photography school which allows me to travel around Ireland, Europe and the USA to shoot scenes that I like, many of these are on the walls of the apartment. If you are also a keen photographer then I look forward to talking cameras, techniques and creativity with you. If you are not then I still look forward to hearing your story!
