Decked private, sheltered courtyard with lounge type garden furniture and outdoor lighting. Uniquely there's a honey bee hive on the main roof (you can see it from the ensuite bathroom window) In season the house comes with a sample of delicious Victoria Terrace honey. The bees collect pollen from the beautiful gardens of Airfield House, just a walk away and open to the public. Fear not they never come near the courtyard, they fly in the opposite direction, and you'll be completely unaware of their presence.

Historic Georgian Redbrick, lovingly restored and extensively modernised. The best of Georgian and contemporary design.
Sarah was warm, welcoming and helpful. Her place was adorable and just as charming as it showed on the website.
We had a really great time in Sarah's appartment !! The place is cosy and beautiful, and so was the room !! Perfect ! Sarah is a great host, I recommand her 100% !!
There are not enough nice things to say about Sarah and her home. After a long week of traveling all over the UK and Ireland ending our trip in Dublin and at Sarah's was so refreshing. She was incredibly kind and helpful. The home itself is in a great location and so easy to get to and from the city center. By far the best Airbnb we have stayed in yet! She went above and beyond hosting us. This is the place to stay if you are traveling to Dublin!
You just have to see Sarah's home to believe it.
It is possibly the most beautiful Airbnb we have stayed in on this trip. A vibrant area and amazingly accessible to transportation.
Sarah herself is wonderful. So is Seamus.
Sarah's house is so warm and beautiful. From the moment you step inside you feel just at home. The area is very convenient and is walking distance to the Luas and shopping centre. We throughly enjoyed our stay and loved staying in Sarah's lovely home. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to have a lovely stay in Dublin. (Thankyou for the delicious chocolates aswell Sarah x )
Sarah was so wonderful in welcoming me to Dublin and sharing all of the information I may need to get around the city. She took my own interests into consideration when recommending good coastal walking areas, where to grab a bite to eat, and other areas of the city and the surrounding area that I may enjoy. Sarah's house was a dream--open, light, and airy, and the room I stayed in was so comfortable. Her home is away from the chaos of the city centre, but only a 13 minute train ride in (and the LUAS stop is directly across the street!). I enjoyed the casual nature of Dundrum, but loved the close proximity to downtown. Sarah's eye for the little things was a wonderful addition--eye masks for sleeping, bubble bath, a cell phone, etc. Sarah was a delight to get to know, and I hope to have the opportunity to stay with her again!
Well seeing this is my second stay at Sarah's, I can say that both Sarah and her home are amazing!! The flat is so beautifully decorated and designed.. Clean and peaceful! It is perfectly located in Dundrum, so close to the Luas and just a few minutes walk to the shopping center. Also, Sarah is one of the sweetest people, she immediately makes you feel right at home and welcomed! You'll absolutely love meeting her and you'll love you stay here! Thanks Sarah for everything :)

About the Host, Sarah
I am delighted to welcome you to Victoria Terrace. I hope you love it as much as I do!
I've signed up to Airbnb for many reasons. Firstly my friends say I'm a born hostess! I love to have people in my home. I have put my heart and soul into renovating it, and want as many people as possible to enjoy it as possible. I've always loved the idea of running my own boutique hotel, so this is like a really mini version of that.
Also, I love to travel. I work freelance, and love the freedom that gives me. The joy of living in 2015 is that with my laptop, at certain stages of projects I can work from just about anywhere in the world with internet, which means my house, is free for you to enjoy.
I also have a separate listing for my spare bedroom for when I am in town.
Looking forward to welcoming you!
