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!

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 (website hidden) 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

Check-in and check-out times are flexible where possible, dependent on incoming or outhoing guests on your days of arrival and departure.

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!
Ich war anfangs sehr skeptisch hinsichtlich der generellen Benutzung von AirBnB. Susan hat allerdings dafür gesorgt, dass dieser Zweifel komplett unbegründet war, bin sogar total begeistert.
Susan war leider nicht da, weil sie sich im Urlaub befand, hat jedoch im Vorfeld dafür gesorgt, dass alles komplett abgeklärt war, so dass es keine einzige Komplikation gab. Reibungsloser hätte es nicht laufen können!
Sie hat mir unaufgefordert wertvolle Tipps für Dublin gegeben und sich die Zeit genommen alle meiner Fragen zu beantworten. Des Weiteren hat sie den Kontakt mit den beiden Taxifahrern Robbie und Jimmy hergestellt. Diese beiden Herren kann ich wärmstens empfehlen, da sie nicht nur extrem nette und zuvorkommende Menschen sind, die auch alle meiner Fragen beantwortet haben, sondern angemessene Preise für die Fahrten verlangt haben. Die direkte Abholung am Flughafen hat zu einer sehr angenehmen Ankunft geführt.
Zur Unterkunft brauche ich nichts hinzu zu fügen, da Susan sie schon perfekt beschrieben hat.
Falls ich wieder nach Dublin fliegen sollte, dann werde ich definitiv diese Unterkunft erneut buchen.
My family and I enjoyed our stay with Susan, she was very thorough with how to use everything and there was plenty of space for six. Her cupboards were filled with things that we could use and the proximity to Phoenix Park was a plus! Susan was also very accommodating despite our late reservation, thank you!
Susan was a fantastic Host! We had come into the town for the inaugural Ironman 70.3 Dublin and it was the best location stay to be at! Transportations from and to the airport from Robbie were quick, efficient, overly gracious and there was never a loss for humor! The house was wonderfully quiet right next to Phoenix Park and offered plenty of scenery and lovely atmosphere for the race preparation and the event itself. Everything well stocked for our visit with shopping and markets within a short stroll from us, as well as fantastic local restaurants just steps down the road. There was plenty of room for the 6 adults that were part of our party and everyone of us loved it! We were able to get around quickly by taxi and foot and there was also a short walk to a DART station nearby as well. HIGHLY recommended for a stay in Dublin!!
We had a WONDERFUL stay at Susan's property! We would stay here again and will recommend this property to our friends. She thought of everything and we wanted for nothing. We have stayed at several AirBnb properties and this was definitely one of the best. Communication with us was fantastic, she was always available (email, text, phone) and helped us with anything that we needed before, and especially during our trip. Even though we had a large party booked in, Susan was able to accommodate a change in the number of people when we had family come into town. The property was clean, wifi worked great, there were place to eat right down the street and a small shop around the corner to buy water. The property is just a short drive away from downtown Dublin, which worked well for us. We also can't say enough good things about Robbie and Jimmy, two gentlemen she uses to drive for her. They met us at the airport and then took our party where ever we needed to go during our stay. They were absolutely fabulous! Funny and a wealth of information about the local area. Their prices were very good and we were able to enjoy our time in Dublin without worrying how we'd get from one place to another. This is a great place to stay and can't say enough about how much we enjoyed staying here and getting to know Susan, Robbie and Jimmy.
Susan was an amazing Host and the home was truly that...a home that we loved coming back to when we were done enjoying Dublin. We were a party of 6 adults traveling to Ireland from the States for the first time and it was wonderful. One of my party got sick while we were there and she and Robbie, the driver she recommended, went above and beyond what one would be expected in terms of helping us. I would recommend this listing without any hesitation whatsoever and will be staying there again. Robbie and Jimmy, the drivers that Susan recommends are wonderful and full of knowledge..take their and Susan's advice without hesitation. They care and are great and caring people. We came as guests and left as friends... Stay here...
A lovely place to stay with everything that you need there. Susan was very helpful and we were made to feel very welcome. Thank you for a great stay!
Nice house with easy access to Central Dublin. Big enough to house my entire 8 person family! Can't say enough good things about Susan. She made us feel very welcome and did everything she could to go out of her way to enhance our experience and make sure we had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. Her personal attention really made a difference. I had told her it was my son's birthday and she even left us a cake and decorations. Anything we needed she was right there and available to help. So wonderful when traveling out of the country. Would highly recommend this house to friends and definitely would stay again!

About the Host, Susan
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. ;-)
