Guest Access

You are welcome to use the kitchen and cooking facilities when we are not using them ourselves. We just ask that we have the living area to ourselves for two hours when we arrive home from work so that we can relax and cook ourselves some dinner. If we are at home the kitchen/living area is usually off limits on our from 8pm-10pm. You are welcome to use the facilities before or after this.

The living area consists of a 40" flat screen T.V. and a vinyl player with 5.0 surround sound. Again, the living area is free for you to use if we are at work and is usually off limits between 8pm-10pm.

Interaction with Guests

Your hosts are a well traveled couple and are happy to give advice on the areas of interest of the city and which tourist traps to avoid. During your check in we will show you transport options around the city and will be happy to give advice on restaurants, shopping and bars. We prefer guests to be as independent as possible during their stay as we both work full time and are usually out socialising with friends on our days off. Our listing is best suited to younger guests who intend to be out and about touring most days.

The Neighborhood

Our apartment is located 10 minutes walk from the new hub of the city. Around the corner is the Irish Financial Service Centre (IFSC) which houses the Convention Centre, perfect for those of you attending conferences.

There is an Aldi and Lidl supermarket close by.

The 3 Arena is located just a 10 minute walk which holds concerts from the worlds biggest stars at least twice a week. There is also a 6 screen Odeon Cinema and Starbucks located next door.

Would you like to catch some Irish sports in our national stadium? Croke Park is within walking distance and can be seen from our balcony.

An indoor market is located beside our building and runs every Saturday and Sunday, all year round.

Although we are considered a city centre apartment, many guests are surprised to find that all the tourist spots are not right outside the door. The tourist area of the City Centre is a 5 minute bus ride away or a 25 minute walk.

Please note that there are no restaurants directly outside our apartment. There are many restaurants and bars 10 minutes walk away or less than 5 minutes in a taxi for older guests.

Wesley

Dublin, Ireland · Member since February 2013

My name is Wesley and my partner is Eamonn. We are a couple sharing the main bedroom of our 2 bedroom apartment. We both work full time but we really enjoy sitting and chatting with our guests or even going to a bar in the city to catch a drink when our work schedule allows.

We are both very well travelled and between us we have visited all over Europe, and parts of The U.S., South America, Asia and The Middle East and we are constantly looking out for interesting places to visit.

We have a great knowledge of the places of interest around Dublin and Ireland in general and are always happy to give advice on what to see.
