My name is Alison and I'm from Sydney, Australia. I came over with my Irish husband and daughter in 2004 and have been here ever since. Normally I work in TV and enjoy renting our room out to meet lucky travellers!
Alison and her daughter were so nice!!! I got kind of lost trying to find the place on (website hidden) maps from Busaras, but Alison and her sweet dog came to meet me (just make sure you look up Avenue, not Street). The room was comfortable and clean, the bathroom was adequate. I got a huge breakfast of eggs and toast and hot tea.
Although I only stayed for one night, I'd say these guys were perfect hosts (for me). They were watching arrested development in the living room and made me feel welcome, Alison gave me some great directions to get to some cute cafes and bars.
It's too bad the room isn't big enough to host couples (or like me someone selfishly wanting a double bed), but this room is well priced and convenient walking/busing/tramming to Dublin City Centre.
Alison was great! She responded efficiently and communication was easy. Really easy going and laid back. No issues what so ever!!
House is clean! My room was nice and cosy :) I had a great night sleep. She even made me breakfast the next day! Easy to find, which was handy for me.
Alison has good knowledge of the area and helped me out with my travels! Definitely recommend to stay!!
