Hi we're Nicola and Eamon.
This is our spacious family home in the quiet but very centrally located Ballsbridge area. The Intercontinental hotel is just close by so it's a great neighbourhood.
The famous Irish poet WB Yeats was born around the corner on Sandymount avenue! ( This year sees the 150th anniversary of his birth)
The Dart (light rail) is literally a two minute walk from the house. It brings you right into the city in ten minutes - or out to the pretty seaside towns and villages of Howth, Dalkey and Killiney where you can stroll around the shops and sample the local seafood.
The house was built in 1892 - it's on a lovely terrace overlooking a little park and tennis court owned by the residents of our street.
You can catch a glimpse of the famous rugby venue, the Aviva stadium right at the top of the road.
The RDS - home to the legendary Dublin Horse Show is less than five minute's walk away.
The picturesque village of Sandymount is also very close by - with nice little shops, cafes and lovely restaurants for a very easy and relaxed night out.
We renovated the house top to bottom recently but did our best to maintain the character and charm.
It's a lovely warm family home, 140 sq metres large. It has a great kitchen with a 'snug' just off it where you can watch tv in front of an antique French stove in which we burn wood and Irish turf.
A tranquil sitting room at the front overlooks the park and it has an open fire where you can sit and read peacefully, listening to the radio, relaxing after a day of sightseeing!
A little bit about us: We are college buddies who first met while studying in University in Galway, now we're married with 3 kids.
Pre-kids we did a good bit of travelling but post-kids we've done even more! Among our favourite places on the planet are Buenos Aires, Budapest and Kyoto. We consider ourselves easy going and fun and would love people to enjoy our home in our absence!
We are very proud of our Airbnb 'superhost' status - thanks to all the lovely guests we've hosted so far - and we work hard to maintain it!!
