My house is truly in one of the best locations in Dublin. You couldn't get any closer to where you want to be and yet it is quiet and peaceful. I am located in the old inner city, the last remaining bastion of the authentic old Dublin.

Your host, Katie

The Space

Hi and welcome to my page! My house is an old (100 years +) Guinness terraced house located in the antique district of Dublin, which also happens to be the unofficial gay district... It is situated 3/4 minutes walk from Christchurch cathedral (Dublin 8) and so in the heart of the city. It is on a quiet residential road but within walking distance of all main tourist attractions.

Within a ten minute walk is,
Trinity College Dublin,
NCADThe Guinness storehouse,
The Jameson Distillery,
St. Patricks Cathedral,
O'Connel Street and the Spire,
IMMA
The National Gallery, History Museum, and Government (website hidden). Stephens Green and The Phoenix Part.

The airport bus, the 747, stops 3/4 minute walk from my house also.

This is a beautiful old house, open fire, comfy bed, great wifi, warm shower, everything you need coming into a Dublin winter.
I will provided bed linen, towels and anything else you might need to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.

You have access to everything you might need. Please feel free to use all that is provided

I will generally be around for most if not all of your stay.

This is a very quirky, truly Dublin neighbourhood. It is at the heart of the antique section of Dublin with also some thrift/charity shops, markets and art gallery's. I love it!

There is lots of public transport nearby however you are within walking distance of pretty much everything and so shouldn't really need to use public transport. 10/15 minutes of Trinity college, O'Connel street, Guinness, Jameson, st. Stephan's Green etc

Guest Access

All your bed linen, towels etc are provided. Also please feel free to help yourself to my variety of tea and coffee. When time permits there will be home made bread and jams also available.

Interaction with Guests

I will usually be here to meet you on arrival, if I can't be, someone else (a close friend) will be. I am always available to take phone calls or text messages in the event that you need to make contact.

  • Avec mon amie nous avons passé trois jours à Dublin et avons pu loger au centre proche du Christchurch . Grâce à la proximité de son appartement, il nous a été facile de nous déplacer à pied. Le logement était confortable, la chambre aussi.Katie nous a préparé du bon pain, fait par ses soins.Elle a su être présente tout en étant très discrète

  • Appartement, très proche du quartier de Temple Bar, idéalement situé dans Dublin pour profiter pleinement du séjour. Nous n'avons pas eu la chance de rencontrer Kate, absente ce weekend là, mais celle-ci nous a laissé de nombreuses informations et adresses très utiles pour profiter de la ville.

  • Great location -- close to the main sights yet quiet. The place was clean and felt inviting. The room was comfortable. Katie was a warm host. I'd stay here again.

  • We had a lovely stay with Katie in Dublin. Her home is ideally located and it is a short 5 minute walk into the city and numerous restaurants and hotels.
    The bedroom and bathroom were spotlessly clean, and we found everything very comfortable.
    We would definitely stay again.

  • Katie's location is truly a great one on a quiet side street between Christchurch and St. Patrick's. I think I was the first person to sleep on the new bed, and I slept like a baby. Katie and I had a pleasant chat the first morning I was there, then she trusted me to stay in her place while she went away for the weekend. I didn't know it at the time, but I really needed a little down time by myself as I was visiting with two different groups of friends and appreciated the quiet at home before spending all day out on the town or out in the countryside. We had a really nice time together the last night before I left, talking about all sorts of good stuff. If I was visiting Dublin again, I'd definitely see if Katie would have me for another stay!

  • In the midst of a beautiful neighbourhood, with lots of that Dublin-charm a guest is hoping for, Katie's house has everything one need and more after a busy day exploring the city.... The house is clean, has a lot of persona and if you keep your window open on a Sunday night, you even get to fall asleep to the warm sounds of Irish folk music from the local Pub; what a way to end the day!

    Katie is a welcoming host with a lot of air-bnb experience. She comes across as very professional and sincerely interested in making the stay a good one. She is direct; a no-nonsense type of person, but is tolerant and with a good sense of humour..
    Even though her daily life continues uninterrupted when you are at her place (as it should) she is available if you have any problems...

  • I had a great time in Dublin. The apartment is in a great location, it is very well kept and clean. Everything ran smoothly.

  • Katie's home is very nice and located in the very center of Dublin, in a quiet area.
    All main monuments and visits are within 10 to 30 minutes walking.

    Thanks to Katie for her welcoming and good advises she gave to us.

    Too bad she is so busy with her studies and work !

  • Great location, walking distance to many popular attractions. Clean and safe. Katie was very accommodating, allowing us to drop our bags off after our flight arrived early morning.

About
HI, I am a doctoral student in my early thirties. I work evenings, so you would have the place to yourself generally for most of your stay. I have an extensive DVD and vinyl collection, which you are more than welcome to use. I am pretty easy going, very tidy and sociable, when work allows! :-) I personally have used airbnb during my travels around California and found it to be an incredible resource.. hence why I've decided to set up my own account. I am very much looking forward to welcoming you to Dublin and doing as much as I can to ensure you have a great time. Also if you are heading to Galway, check out my mum's house- she's on here too.. https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/608412
