This Double Room is in an architect restored open plan artisan house in the historic Mount Brown district available for single or double occupancy. Full cooking facilities, wifi and on street parking available. I also have a wood burning stove and a large bath tub which you are welcome to soak in.

  • Kathy's house was very cute and nice. Although we haven't met her, everything went very well. And we never had the feeling to be left alone. We had a great time in Dublin, and every spot was easy to reach from this place. As it is an old house bring some warm socks with you, and make use of the stove to make it very comfy! We loves to stay in that house and highly recommend it.

  • Waked up by the seagulls, after a sound sleep in a good bed in a quiet neighbourhood! We loved the house and the surroundings. We didn’t meet Kathy because we arrived later than expected but we got the feeling that we know her a little now after staying at her lovely place. It was easy to reach her by sms/tel.
    We felt at home and would like to come back, although the breakfast facilities were far less than suggested and the kitchen wasn’t very clean ;-)

  • Kathy welcomed a groggy jet-lagged me with a hot cup of tea and a big smile and gave some great recommendations for spots around town. Her charming little house is in a cloistered little neighborhood you might never know was there if not for finding her listing. An easy few minutes walk to the tram to get into the center in about 15-20 minutes, or 25 minute walk to the center, and a very short five minute walk uphill to the IMMA for an exhibit and lunch in the cafe- recommended.

  • Kathy has lovely house in a great area! It was great to be able to come back to her cosy living room in the evening. We were very comfortable there!

  • The room, house and host were all wonderful. It's a lovely cottage style home in a quiet residential zone quite close to the centre of Dublin. Kathy was really friendly and welcoming and made me feel at home.

  • We had a great time at Kathy's place. Although she was sick Kathy came by and gave us some useful tips. The neighborhood is really charming, plus it's well-located. We did everything by foot or Luas. Grazie and danke!

  • On arrival, Kathy was there to meet me and give me the basics about the home. I didn't see her anytime after that. It would have been nice to have her around and available for questions, but she had let out her room and was staying with a friend. I was out most days. The walk to O'Connell street (the main downtown street) was roughly a 45 mins walk -- it was further than I had expected. However it is 25 mins to the city centre. The room was a bit cold, but warm underneath the covers. I had planned to cook dinners there, but didn't because the kitchen was a bit cluttered. It is located in a very cute part of the city, which I wouldn't have seen had I not stayed there. Kathy's home was a nice place to rest at the end of the day.

  • We stayed at Kathy's place for 2 weeks. It added to the Dublin experience because we were one of the locals. Kathy's place became more comfortable and quaint with each additional day we were there. Very cool choice of stay to enjoy and experience Dublin.

  • Kathy is a great host with lots of excellent tips about Dublin. The place feels like home the minute you enter it. Highly recommended!

  • I loved Kathy's place. It's so cosy and confortable. She is very helpful and kind. She let me use the wash machine and her computer to buy my ticket to Belfast and I could use the kitchen as well. If one day I could back to Dublin i'll choose it again.

    Gracias Kathy.

About
I am a producer of cultural events & experiences in Ireland and am most passionate about making curious things happen. I am obsessed with art, music, theatre, film, fashion, literature and yoga . Am happy to point you in the right direction for gigs, shows and other pop up happenings around the city. I am also a yoga teacher & student and teach classes at a few centres around the city. I am bit of a global nomad and travel to inspiring places ( Iceland, India , California ) as much as possible especially to see shows, go to gigs and festivals or practice with international yoga teachers. My house is full of books, art and little treasures collected around the world on my adventures. I love living at Mount Brown as the neighborhood has so much character & feels like a living on set of a magical Harry Potter. I love being so close to the huge parkland expanse of Phoenix Park and the hundreds of deer that live there. This part of Dublin feels like a secret hideaway tucked from the hustle & bustle of city living complete with urban foxes nearby It cools to be to be an Airbnb host as I had an incredible experience in Colorado & California in 2012 and am ready to travel again in the near future.
