Accueil chaleureux d'Aida. Le quartier est très calme et la situation géographique permet de se rendre rapidement à al gare et en ville. Le logement est très fonctionnel et magnifique. Aida est une hôte d'exception qui avait tout prévu pour notre arrivée et pour que notre séjour se déroule au mieux. Superbe séjour donc!
Aida's cottage was really beautiful. It is very modern and finished to a high standard. The kitchen was equipped with new appliances which allows you to cook like you were at home. There are plenty of take-away options near by also, Da Mimmo Italian was recommended to us By Aida and it did not disappoint! The cottage was extremely clean and there is plenty of space downstairs with two sitting areas. The underground heating was luxury and Aida has set it to be on for our entire stay. Aida was flexible about the check-in time and greeted us with some food supplies for breakfast, in addition to a bottle of red wine-this was a lovely touch. There is free parking outside the door which is a big bonus for Dublin. The only downside we had was that the one toilet is actually downstairs, we were unaware of this when booking and we had someone in the group who this was an issue for. Overall, I would recommend Aida's cottage in a flash - it's like a home away from home!
A very enjoyable stay in a beautiful and well located place.
Aïda welcomed us and helped us settle in in a whip. The house and the small garden have been beautifully designed and decorated. Very close to the city center either on foot or on short bus drive (plenty of buses). I love the location next to a park, close to real shops with real people, close to the very nice West Wood sport center (Clontarf branch) which has a 50m pool - also open in winter. DART (the Dublin train / commuter) is 5 minutes away which is great to visit the countryside without a car. Thank you Aïda. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. Thanks also for the different indications on the neighborhood which were very useful.
Was greeted and shown around the accommodation by a friend of the host. The Cottage was as described and the breakfast items kindly provided was a nice touch.
Wasn't advised where the washing machine was but found it a couple of days later in a separate location in the back garden, so it may be worth adding to the information sheet or mentioning when greeting future guests.
Neighbourhood was fine and location for getting into City Centre is ideal as all buses run in from the stop on the main road into the centre. You can actually walk it in 20 minutes as well. Stores nearby in either direction on main road for groceries.
I just stayed for 5 days in Aïdas house with my mom, her friend and my uncle and aunt. The minute we walked through the door, we all agreed that the house was something special. The architechture is really nice and the house has such a nice atmosphere. On top of that, Aïda is a great host. She gave us a very nice and informative welcome and she had provided us with fruit, coffee, bread, eggs, cheese etc. for breakfast. Well, there wasn't enough for 5 days, but we didn't expect anything, so it was a pleasant surprice. Besides that, the kitchen is very well equiped, so it is very easy to cook a good meal, if you want to do that.
The house sleeps 6 people, but 2 have to sleep on a bed couch in the living room. It worked as my bed during my stay, and it was actually very comfortable. But since the only toilet in the house is located next to the living room, the other guests have to pass you while you're sleeping if they have to use the toilet at night. So I recommend to let the "heavy sleepers" use the bed couch, if you're staying more than 4 people.
The house is located north of Dublin City Center. It takes about 30 minutes to walk to the City Center. Bus stops are 1 min. away and buses towards City Center departs frequently and take you to town in no time. There's only a 15 minute walk to a train station, where the DART Train will take you to the beautiful coastline just outside of Dublin. A day trip to Howth is very recommendable. So the house is located in a calm area, but has easy access to town and lot's of nice places.
Oh..... and if you're hungry and don't feel like going into the City Center for dinner, don't hesitate to visit "Da Mimmo" A small Italian restaurant a few minutes away. Excellent freshly made Italian food!!! Actually it's worth a visit no matter what!!!
If you're going to Dublin as a group of people. Or if you just want a lot of space for yourself, I can highly recommend Aïdas place. Nice, clean, cozy and beautiful house, great host and good location. Definitely a great airbnb experience!
Aida made us feel very welcome. She was very classy and had great style as well as a very friendly and warm way about her. Just really nice experience and her personality was reflected by a really wonderful home that was artistic, creative and fun as well as practical. We loved her home and was happy to have stayed there our first time in Dublin.
We have bee at aidas aapartement for 3 nights. It was just amazing. Everything was great. You have enough space- we were a group of 5 and it was so comfortable. Aida came to give us the key and she is really helpful and kind. We were surprised in a positiv way for all the stuff she had prepared for us. Thank you so much aida!
