Complimentary tea and coffee or ( stronger) on your arrival.
The centre of. Georgian Dublin is only 20 minutes away by train or bus.
Iit's absolutely no problem if you would like a ride to the station, the bus is 5 minutes walk away..
You must visit Triniity College to see The Book of Kells, or stroll down Dublin's famous Grafton street for shopping. .
The more tranquil treasures of the National Museum, Library and Gallery are also a must see. Powerscourt Townhouse Centre is also a must (Built as the Guinness family's Town house) Its a totally unique Georgian enclosed shopping enclave, with designer clothes boutiques, antique shops, and several restaurants and coffee houses, to name but a few
Perhaps you might feel like dining by our famous River Liffey. A short stroll from O'connell Street, lies the MV Cill Airne . It is a former training vessel and now boasts an upmarket restaurant " Quay 16" or perpaps you might prefer the" Blue River Bistro" for more casual dining, with full bar and unrivalled views of the waterfront. I could go on and on and on............
We have numerous guide books and brochures, with lots of suggestions and recommendations of places of interest to visit, and great places to eat, and pubs to try "the Black Stuff " and watch the world go by, both locally and in town, (See photo of my lovely guest Peggy, sampling the very stuff in Howth)

Interaction with Guests
I am at home full time and here to offer help if needed, and all the information of a local to all the wonderful places to visit in Dublin and further afield
I offer the guests a tour of the area to familiarise themselves with the lie of the land, bus dart etc.,
Good pubs, restaurants etc.
I love living in Sutton , which is on a peninsula, so we have the sea all-around us, and have wonderful walks on the nearby cliffs and local beaches .. We live in a very quiet and safe area, our nearest beach, one of many, is only five minutes away.. We have sailing, fishing and swimming close by. We have wonderful restaurants and genuine Irish pubs in Howth village. . For those who like skuba diving there is now a school in Howth. A bird sanctuary on an island ( Ireland's Eye) in the bay. For golf lovers we have at least five Links courses within twenty minutes, two just on our doorstep.
Who could blame me for loving where I live

Hi, I'm Anne and I'm a very friendly and outgoing person. I 'm very open minded and love to try new things. I'm an Interior Designer and really love my work, and have travelled abroad on work projects. I love to visit markets, antique fairs, and buy old furniture. I paint and distress them with chalk paint and I give full and half day courses, and really enjoy teaching it. I always have a project on the go. I read a lot, and am a regular movie goer , and I love travelling, and have been to many countries. and also enjoy cruising, since I won our first cruise in a slogan competition ten years ago. I have just returned from a three week trip to California, during which I went on a seven day cruise up the Pacific coast way. It was fabulous. I love the States. While on my trip I learned how to play Sudouko. I'm now hooked.
I believe personality, fun and a strong sense that nothing is so precious that you can't relax, is fundamental to being a successful Super Host.
