And finally, if it's a sterile, generic hotel environment you're after, then our place is probably not for you. This is our home, built on many years of love and laughter - and we hope all guests who choose to stay here will feel every bit at home here as we've always done!
Guests will have the entire house all to themselves and also have sole access to the small - but charming - courtyard downstairs.
Free on-street and off-street parking.
Interaction with Guests
I'll be here to welcome you on arrival, show you around the house, answer any questions you may have and provide some insider tips and info on local sights and amenities. I'll then be available by phone, email, text, or Whatsapp for the duration of your stay and hope to help make your holiday in Dublin as pleasant and enjoyable as possible.
This is a very safe, friendly area - one of the few remaining genuine old Dublin neighbourhoods still unspoiled by 'progress'. People around here still know each other by name and greet each otherin the street with a smile - a rare find in most cities these days!
We're also lucky enough to have the beautiful, tranquil Phoenix Park literally as our back garden, which is the largest enclosed park in Europe and a wonderful space to explore. The deer roam freely here, and you can enjoy an exhilirating run, take in the award-winnning Dublin Zoo, or just relax and watch the world go by over a delicious coffee and cake at the quaint little old Tea Rooms down near the Bandstand. The lovely Royal Canal Walk is just a short stroll away too.
Within 2 -10 minutes walk, we have several fantastic bars and restaurants, including the jewel in the crown - The Hole In The Wall. If it's a REAL traditional Irish pub experience you're after, then this can't be beaten!
The best bit! While there is bus stop about 5 mins walk away, and train at 15 mins, almost all my guests choose instead to avail of my wonderful local taxi drivers - and right-hand men! - Robbie and Jimmy. (See the many glowing mentions they get in my reviews) From airport pick-ups, to short hops into Temple Bar/City Centre, to day-trips out to our beautiful coastal fishing villages such as Howth, Malahide or Dalkey, the guys will be on hand to make getting around Dublin fast, easy, affordable, enjoyable and stress-free. Also, Robbie and Jimmy are the absolute Fonts of All Knowledge on the subjects of places to see and things to do in Dublin, and are happy to offer the best advice and suggestions, specifically tailored to your requirements. Several guests have even remarked that it's like having your own personal tour guides, for a similar cost to public transport. The friendly, efficient service they provide my guests in invaluable (and unrivalled!) and a huge perk for anyone who chooses to stay here.
Other Things to Note
PLEASE CHECK WITH ME THAT DATES ARE AVAILABLE BEFORE SENDING RESERVATION REQUESTS
Check-in and check-out times are flexible where possible, dependent on incoming or outhoing guests on your days of arrival and departure.
Travel cot, high chair and stroller can be provided upon request, at no extra charge
No parties. This is a quiet, residential area and it's my number one priority that guests are respectful and my lovely neighbours are not disturbed in any way, so please keep noise to an acceptable level, both inside and outside the house.
Smoking is allowed outside on the balconies - two of the three balconies are covered so you'll still have shelter... ;-)
And most importantly - relax, make yourself at home and have a lovely time!
A group of 7 of us stayed in Susan's place and we couldnt have picked a better place to stay. The house was amazing, it looks even better than the pictures! Susan was extremely welcoming and helped us organise a lift from the airport. Robbie picked us up and was brilliant, every taxi journey was a real laugh and he was very flexible in his availability to take us to from the town.
The Hole in the Wall Pub is a 1 minute walk away and is great, a must visit!
Susan provided all we could need and more in the house and we would certainly stay here again if we were in Dublin.
Thank you Susan and Robbie, I hope to see you both again very soon!
We were a group of 9 French people staying at Susan's house for 3 nights.
Susan was very kind with us as well as Robie (Susan's driver)
The house was very confident and well located not far away from the city center.
We have spent a very nice week end in Dublin and I highly recommend to rent this house
Dublin is known for it's friendliness and hospitality but Susan surpasses all expectations with her warm, friendly and super-organised hosting. From the prompt response on enquiry to the arranging of taxi pick ups to the incredibly thoughtful touches like a birthday cake and snacks on arrival to a fully stocked fridge and all manner of toiletries available to us ..... Susan made our family trip of 7 to Dublin a happy, comfortable and hassle free trip, we felt very pampered and well looked after and we will definitely be back.
I can't recommend highly enough Susan as the perfect host, she is amazing and the property was super comfortable, warm, clean and chic. Having Robbie and Jimmy available as taxi drivers was a big bonus, they are both funny, knowledgeable about Dublin and super flexible (and fantastic value), again I can't recommend highly enough.
And lastly this was our first Airbnb booking, we might have been just incredibly lucky but we will definitely be using Airbnb again - thanks Susan!!
Super Haus. Freundlicher und sehr zuvorkommende Besitzer. Reibungsloser Ablauf und rund um TOP.
Vielen Dank für Alles. Sie sind sehr zu empfehlen und wir waren sehr zufrieden.
What a great place to stay! We traveled as a group of 11 girls and Susan was a fantastic host, meeting all of our needs. Susan arranged transport from the airport with Robbie and Jimmy who were great and were there for us whenever we needed them. Susan stocked the house with food, drinks and even treated me to a birthday cake! The house was next to a great pub called the Hole in the Wall which served lovely food and had its own wine boutique where you could purchase alcohol to take home. We had a great stay in Dublin and I don't think we would be as happy if we had stayed anywhere else! Thank you Susan!
Wir haben das Haus von Susan mit 8 Personen gemietet. Das Haus war super schön, alles hat funktioniert und es war bestens ausgestattet.
Susan war eine perfekte Gastegeberin - besonders toll waren auch die Taxifahrer, die sie uns organisiert hat., Sie haben uns zu jeder Zeit überall hin gebracht und das zu wirklich angemessenen Preisen. Uns wurde jedes mal noch etwas besonderes gezeigt und man hat sich sehr sehr viel Mühe um uns gegeben.
Das Haus selbst liegt schön am Park, es ist recht ruhig und trotzdem kamen wir immer gut in die Stadt. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten gibt es in der Nähe ausreichend.
Alles in allem würde ich jederzeit wieder gast bei Susan sein wollen und ichg würde jedem empfehlen sich hier einzuquartieren! Eine bessere Gastgeberin kann es eigentlich nicht geben :)
Abbiamo soggiornato in questa fantastica casa per 3 giorni durante le vacanze di Natale. Eravamo in 8 (due famiglie con figli) e c'era ampio spazio per le esigenze di tutti. La casa e' esattamente come si vede in foto ed e' equipaggiata con tutto quello che serve.
Susan e' una padrona di casa gentile e premurosa e si e' dimostrata disponibile e puntale verso ogni nostra richiesta.
Una nota di merito al "mitico" Robbie, che ci ha accompagnati ovunque con il suo Taxi-Renna e con la sua simpatia!
Peccato essere rimasti solo tre giorni.....

Hi there, I'm Susan. I live on the edge of the Phoenix Park, Dublin and couldn't wish for a better place to live. We're close enough to town to enjoy and appreciate everything our city has to offer, yet only have to look out our windows at the glorious park views to feel far removed from the hustle and bustle. I've had wonderful experiences as an AirBnB guest on breaks to cities such as London, New York and Barcelona, and decided it would be fun to try hosting for a change! I believe Dublin is one of the most characterful, vibrant cities in the world and will be more than happy to assist in every way possible to make your visit to our charming city an exciting, effortless, unforgettable experience. ;-)
