Hi let us be your hosts,
My house offers four luxury bedrooms for a short or long term stay for visitors to Dublin's fair city.
The house is over three floors and very spacious, modern and clean in a quiet neighbourhood only 5 minutes from Dublin Airport, 20 minutes to the city centre by local bus or train.
Accommodation will include breakfast- Selection of cereal, eggs, toast, bagels, cheese, jams, tea ,coffee and orange juice..
A selection of herbal teas, tea and coffee are always available 24 hours..
Airport pickup and drop off can usually be organised for a small fee of €5 each way for 4 people.
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.
This house has a unique destination as it offers you everything you need on your visit to Dublin within a short distance and if you want more than just a city break then there are plenty of fishing villages scattered around.
The M1 motorway is only a stones throw away and offers a direct access to everywhere in Ireland North ,South, East and West.
So if it is a short break for you in Dublin, an airport layover or just a place to sleep for an night before you go touring you can rest assured that we will pull out all of the stops to make sure that your stay in my home is a pleasant and memorable experience for you and yours.
My house is a great launching pad if you are travelling Ireland for your first night before touring the country and your last night before departure..

Des & Sinead
When Sinead came to pick us up at the airport she told us that she had an unexpected issue come up. Apparently the family that was also booked the same night were bringing 2 extra people. Although I had booked and paid for this reservation months ahead of time....we were bumped....and found this out when she picked us up.
Sinead told us that she booked us into a B&B called CASTLE LODGE B&B which turned out to be the MOST amazing surprise! We were walking distance from the adorable village of Malahide, Malahide Castle, and the beach! We had an amazing time with our hosts and felt welcomed and invited! I now have a new "home" in Dublin!
Des and Sinead were the best hosts we have ever had! They were as friendly as Irish/Scottish people come. They were always ready for us and took absolute great care of us during our stay. They made us feel right at home and their dogs were absolute angels (: Definitely recommended, we would come back and stay with them again.
Sinead and Des are wonderful hosts who go the extra mile for their guests .The house is in pristine condition. Sinead picked me up from and dropped me to Dublin airport. I liked them (website hidden) was eas y to be in their house. The 2 dogs were angelic too!
I was able to stay with Des and Sinead on my way into Ireland and on my way home to the US. They are the kind of people I wish were in my life every day. They are both so very easy to be around and so incredibly welcoming. When you are in their home, it's your home. They are generous, helpful, and kind. I stayed in 2 rooms on my 2 stays and I loved them both! Lovely decor and nice, hot showers! The home is very clean and the breakfasts are filling - ALWAYS plenty of hot coffee or tea.
Their home is not far to Dublin City Center by bus (and short walk to bus stop.) The bus ride itself is lovely, if you can sit upstairs, do so. Plenty of wonderful old churches to peek at as you ride.
If they encourage you to order food from the nearby take-away, DO IT! The food is delicious and very affordable. (Seriously, made my last night in Ireland even better!)
They aren't kidding when they say they'll pick you up at the airport. Every pick-up/drop-off was so easy and fast! Definitely take them up on it - 5 Euros is a smashing deal for the service!
I'm so glad I get to stay in touch with them on (website hidden) - Des, Sinead, Timmy, and Coney made me feel so very welcome - not a care in the world in their lovely home. I hope I can go back soon!! They are absolutely the best!
Exceptional stays (yes, we stayed with them twice). Des and Sinead were wonderful hosts - friendly, full of advice and suggestions for what to do and see, and how to go about doing so. They made our stay a pleasure, and could not do enough for us. Highly recommend staying here. We did so twice and look forward to repeat visits!
Absolutely faultless. Des and Sinead are the ultimate hosts, polite, professional, supremely efficient and exceptionally friendly. Their home is immaculate, spacious, quiet, and conveniently located for buses to Dublin and the airport . Sinead had change for the bus, printed out timetables , with their address on, just in case, spare chargers for the phone, and they both always had a smile, plenty to chat about, and fabulous cups of tea and coffee.
Wonderful stay with these great hosts. Made a quick stay very fun and easy.
I don't remember having nicer hosts. The bed and the room were great. The tea was delicious. The location was very good. I got precise directions and other information from Des and Sinead was most welcoming. The short time spent there was a pleasure. Thanks to both of you.
There is not much I can share that has not already been said. except they treated me like Family while I was there. I am a 77 year old man, when they took me to the airport, they walked me in to make sure everything went right. Thanks Des and sinead for a cup of tea and a great visit.. When I come back to Ireland I know where I will be staying. I will recommend there house to anyone. Des and Sinead you are the greatest.
Like the other reviewers, I can only highly recommend this accomodation. Des and Sinead are an exceedingly friendly and helpful family. They did everything to get us to Dublin. Des drove three times to the bus stop and back to get us to the bus, because we had a disabled person with us. He even proposed to take us to Dublin City by car, but I didn't want him to waste his time. Sinead prepared a delicious breakfast for us every morning with eggs and cereals. The rooms are clean and in good style. The house is in a quiet residential complex with nearly no traffic and a childrens playground direct in front of the house. To get to Dublin by bus is easy and costs 2.80 Eur one way per person. The bus stop is 5 to 10 min to walk and it takes 30 min to get into Dublin City. But be sure you have enough small change, as the bus drivers do not accept bank notes and you also don't get any change. All in all we had a great time with Des&Sinead and next time we're in Dublin we'll of course stay with them again.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
