Hi, we are Ian and Laura,
We invite you to come and have an enjoyable stay in Dublin with two primary school teachers!
We were both born and raised in Dublin so we can tell you everything you need to know about our great city. We can also tell you the best places for tourists to visit in and around Dublin. If we have time we might even be able to bring you for a nice pint of Guinness!!
We are located in Blanchardstown, which is about 30 minutes by bus to the city centre. The buses come very regularly.
You will have your own private double room and private bathroom. We have high speed wi-fi, large screen TV and parking. We are located very close to the Phoenix Park, the M50 and the Blanchardstown Shopping Centre. The Blanchardstown Shopping Centre is a ten minute walk from our house and is one of Ireland's biggest shopping malls with numerous stores, restaurants, coffee shops, cinema, bowling, etc.
Depending on the time of your arrival, airport pick-up may be possible - it depends if we are working or not. We will always try our best to pick up our guests.
A breakfast of cereal and tea/coffee/toast will be available for free to all guests who come to stay with us.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
Ian and Laura
Thank you for the nice stay. I enjoyed the comfortable bed and the extra bathroom. I just meet Laura and she was very friendly, listening to all my Ireland experiance so far.
I can highly recommand their place.
The Bus to Dublin went only 25 minutes.
Ian et Laura nous ont accueillis en venant nous chercher à l'aéroport, puis ils nous ont tout de suite présenté les lieux, la chambre, et la salle de bain privée ! Puis ils nous ont offert un thé : on s'est tout de suite sentis biens. Ils nous ont aussi montré où prendre le bus. Tout était propre, ils nous avaient mis des savons à disposition, et le quartier très calme. Pour le reste, nous avons trouvé que le logement était un peu loin du centre ville de Dublin, mais très bien desservis par un bus (environ toutes les demi heures sauf le dimanche, toutes les heures ! ne pas hésiter à télécharger l'application Dublin Bus à consulter dans un endroit avec le wifi avant de vouloir rentrer !).
It was a really great stay! Ian and Laura were very kind, helpful and caring hosts. Although we arrived late in the evening, Ian collected us from the airport and showed us the way to the bus stop for getting into the city center on the next day. On our hole stay in Ians and Lauras cosy house we felt like beeing at home.
Thank you very much for a great time in Dublin :)
Ian and Laura were amazing, generous, enthusiastic hosts. They were kind enough to go out of their way to pick us up from the airport (from two separate flights several hours apart!) and to drop us off again at the end of the trip. The house is lovely: very clean, very pretty, and fully stocked with kitchen supplies, shampoo, towels, etc. The pictures on the listing are very accurate.
Ian gave us a great introduction to the city by pointing things out on the map (there are many available on the desk in the room) and by showing us how to work the public transportation system, even providing a Leap Card (you reimburse them at the end), which is much more convenient and cheaper than cash. The bus takes you right into the city center.
The neighborhood is quiet and safe and there are shops and grocery stores within easy walking distance.
The bathroom is well taken care of, right outside the room, and used only by the guests.
We felt completely at home and were very impressed! Thank you so much Ian and Laura!
Ian and Laura were perfect hosts. They made us feel like at home, helping and indicating what nice things we could do. Also it's nice to speak with them because they are friendly and funny.
The price is really cheap because, we think, they enjoy being hosts :)
We had our first experience with airbnb with them and if everyone is like them we discovered a really nice way to travel!
We had wunderfull days in Ireland. We meet much fine and friendly people but the most kindly two persons were Ian and laura. Thank you so much for living in your house and for all the things you gave
and you've done for us.
Now im german, dass ist einfacher:
Ian und Laura haben dazu beigetragen, dass wir ein paar wundervolle Tage rund um Dublin verbringen konnten. Schön war, dass wir neben einem Raum auch ein Bad nur für uns hatten. Die beiden haben uns durch Karten, Hinweise, Adressen und ein Busticket Vieles vereinfacht, ohnedem wären wir sicher etwas hilflos rumgeirrt.
Wir hatten nette Gespräche und konnten uns gut verständigen, auch wenn unsere Englischkenntnisse arg angestaubt sind. Darauf sind beide eingegangenen und um so leichter viel uns die Unterhaltung.
Wir wünschen den beiden alles Gute für die Zukunft.
Ian and Laura were amazing hosts. Ian was kind enough to drive us to our destinations that we wanted to visit, as well as dropping us off at the airport! Both were very welcoming and made us feel right at home.
The place is lovely - a really nice room with a very comfy bed. Breakfast was anything we fancied from the kitchen downstairs which was kind of them.
The location is great! It is one bus straight to the centre of town that takes about 20 minutes and the Nitelink bus runs all through the night, so you can stay in town as long as you like.
Overall a great experience. Ian and Laura made Dublin feel so accessible and we are now wanting to go back!
I'm a 31 year old primary school teacher. I teach in a school in the city centre, so I can offer early morning lifts in to the city centre every Monday - Friday during the school term. I love keeping fit and I play a lot of football. I also enjoy jogging and going to the gym.
Laura is 27, and she is a primary school teacher in Finglas. She is also a qualified ballet teacher and loves all sort of dance/music. She also enjoys keeping fit and jogging.
We both love meeting new people and travelling. We have travelled all over Europe, and have been to many parts of Asia and North America. We also enjoy socialising at the weekends and going for a drink or two! Finally, we both like to read when we get a chance.
We love the idea of airbnb and we want to help tourists discover Dublin. We are willing to help you in whatever way we can and point you in the right direction!
