Once you are settled in, a few minutes by car brings you to the vibrant village of Malahide which boasts a lovely 12th century castle set on 250 acres of park land, there are over 25 restaurants to choose from in this award winning pretty seaside town along with traditional Irish pubs with live music. Ladies boutiques, a yachting marina and the beach are also a big feature in Malahide village.
A further five minutes along the coast is Portmarnock beach, nicknamed The Velvet Strand due to the beautiful smooth sand along the beach, and is popular with wind and kite surfers.
The local double decker bus is a 20 minute ride to the heart of Dublin city centre and costs €2.80. Here you can visit all your planned attractions whether it be Temple Bar, The Guinness factory, Dublin Castle or just take a stroll around the citys streets and listen to the street buskers crooning.

Des and Sinead provided our first impression of Irish hospitality and of airbnb. It will be hard to beat! We completely enjoyed our stay in their clean, warm home, and the unexpected special attention and care shown by them, made us feel like friends rather than simply guests. Highly recommended. We plan to return!
Des and Sinead went out of there way to make sure we got about, showed us around and transported us to and fro to airport. They went above and beyond to help us. Good Luck to both.
Des and Sinead are terrific! They went above and beyond for us. Sinead helped us with getting the right change for the bus, she drove us to the bus stop and showed us how to walk home from it. They helped us with maps and sights in Dublin. And finally, on our departure to the airport, Sinead, took us on a short sightseeing tour of the local castle and the coast. We don't consider ourselves high maintenance guests, but these gestures were simply the exceptional hospitality and concern that Des and Sinead have for their guests. The room was very comfortable and everthing was sparkling clean. HIGHLY recommend.
Des and Sinead are the best hosts that we have encountered, bar none. They far exceeded our expectations. Not only are they incredibly warn, generous and open, they are people that we would love to call friends. We have travelled as a family for three weeks throughout a good portion of Europe. I had lived there before but it was a first for my husband and children. I wanted them to have a wonderful experience. Des and Sinead were a great part of that. We stayed in 6 air bnb locations throughout our European stay. Some were wonderful and some were lacking to say the least. To end our stay with Des and Sinead made up for any and all glitches we may have encountered.
I can't say enough about the two of them. Anyone that stays with them will feel blessed. I only hope that someday we can host them here in Toronto.
Like others who have stayed with Des and Sinead, I was 100% impressed with the attention and care that I received while I stayed with them. The night before I was scheduled to arrive to their place (very late the night before), my plans changed and I sent them a message. I didn't expect a response until the next morning, but I was surprised to hear back within 10 or 15 minutes. They were so flexible about changes in my arrival time, as well as the number of guests staying. They were fair about the change in reservation fee, as well.
When we arrived, Des and Sinead talked to us about the best way to make the most of our time in Dublin (and told us all about the buses, gave us a map to get around, and shared some tips), and Sinead even drove us to the bus stop so we could quickly get to the city center. As we waited for the bus, we saw it drive by us (oh no!). Though Sinead could have left us to wait for the next one, she caught up to the bus and made sure we got onto it...amazing!
My friend and I were sick, and Des and Sinead stayed up until we got home and made sure we had a warm cup of tea and medicine after a cold, rainy, windy day exploring Dublin.
My flight left at 6:30 the next day, and even though we told Des he didn't need to wake up at that ungodly hour, he was up at 4:15am making sure we were up and getting ready to get to the airport on time. By the time we were dressed, he had prepared a cup of tea and was warming bagels and toast for us.
Des and Sinead were a perfect combination of attentive and warm while simultaneously allowing us privacy. They are amazing hosts, and deserve all the wonderful reviews (and more) that they've already received. I would most definitely stay with them again!
Des and Sinead were a great host and hostess. They made the start of our trip to Ireland and Scotland very memorable. They made us feel very comfortable from the very start and went out of their way to be helpful. Their accommodations were spacious and clean. We would stay with them again without hesittation.
Great experience... Great communication and so inviting. Lovely accommodations and hosts....Thank you Des and Sinead. It was nice meeting you!!
Des and Sinead were extremely kind and hospitable to me. Their place is super convenient to the airport and transportation through them was easy. Everything was exactly as their listing had portrayed and I was pleased with the accomodation. A few pluses: the heat was suffiencient (compared to my other colder accomodations I'd experienced in Dublin), everything seemed new and in good condition, and the dogs were very friendly and lovable. Minuses: shared bathroom, thin walls (could hear other guests). Overall very good!
There are no minuses M B B at €28 per night.
You were picked up the Airport on arrival and requested Sinead to take you to a Local Irish Bar because you needed to eat, whilst Sinead waited for you and this held my day up.
You were then brought straight to my house at 2 pm in the afternoon and given a large warm Double Bedroom (not the single bedroom you paid for) with a memory foam mattress with a spotlessly clean bathroom and a hot power shower beside it.
You were offered drinks on arrival and also a free lift to enjoy the local seaside village of Malahide, you chose to stay in your bedroom from 2 p.m until breakfast the following morning, after you finished breakfast you were chauffeured straight to your departure lounge in Dublin Airport.
Our walls are the standard walls of The Airport Hotel walls, concrete and plasterboard, if you had done what most guests do and go the sightseeing or just go for a walk in the Malahide Castle park and get some fresh Irish air. Everyone was in their bed by 10 pm so there was not a sound in the house
Next time you should spend €100 and book an Airport Hotel room (you will have a private bath and toilet) from 2 pm in the afternoon and refuse to leave the room.There is a very good chance you will hear other people like staff working and guests checking in and out as well as Airplanes and I suggest you do this the next time as Airbnb is not designed for you.
€28 PER NIGHT
Des and Sinead are the coolest and most dedicated AirBnB people I have ever met. The service was absolutely amazing and very professional. Everything was super clean and breakfast was amazing (cereal, bagels, etc.). By far the best AirBnB experience yet. 5-10 min car ride from the airport and a 30 min bus ride from downtown Dublin.
These guys are the most professional and committed Airbnb I've visited so far, make this your only choice if you want to stay close to the airport!
