Very spacious, well maintained, fully equipped house, conveniently located just 15 minutes walk from O'Connell Street and beside Croke Park (Convention Centre 1.6km, Temple Bar & Trinity College 2km). Great local bus service that passes by many of the main tourist attractions. A traditional working class area of Dublin that's a bit shabby in places, but lovely neighbours - this little cul-de-sac so close to the city bustle is surprisingly peaceful. Guests have exclusive use of the entire house.
This spacious property has been newly decorated and has all the essentials for a comfortable stay for a group of friends or for families. All the essentials are provided: towels and bed linen, shampoo/shower gel, hairdryer, breakfast essentials (tea, coffee, cereal), cosy and warm - central heating throughout, fully equipped kitchen with cooker, microwave, toaster, kettle, cafetiere, larder fridge and a separate stand-alone freezer, washing machine (clothes drying rack for indoor drying, washing line in yard), iron and ironing board. Wifi. "Smart" tv's in living room and twin bedroom, both with 240mb broadband internet connection, Netflix enabled, digital channels (plus integrated DVD player on bedroom TV), ideal for parents spending the night in with young children.
Business and Family friendly: 24 hr check-in, wifi and unlimited 240mb broadband, "smart" television with local and digital channels and web apps (Netflix enabled), and screen mirroring, infant high chair and cot.
There are 2 bathrooms.
Although located just 15 minutes walk from O'Connell Street, one of the main city centre thoroughfares, it is on a quiet, secluded cul-de-sac, with the benefit of free on-street parking (subject to availability), unusual in such a central location. The local bus just 2 minutes walk away brings you on a route that takes in O'Connell Street (where you can pick up most of the tour buses), Henry Street (one of the main shopping streets in Dublin), Temple Bar, Trinity College and Book of Kells, Grafton Street, Christchurch, Dublinia, St Patrick's Cathedral, and the Guiness Hop Store, etc.
No smoking in the house please. There is a small back yard where you can smoke in peace, please dispose of cigarette butts in the garbage, after fully extinguishing under the tap. Party people welcome as long as you intend doing your partying in town and using the house to relax and recover!
Full use of the entire house during your stay. Private entrance. Late arrival no problem - arrangements for key collection at any time day or night. Free unallocated parking on the street (subject to availability of space - if you are bringing a car).
Interaction with guests
I may not be able to meet you but will be contactable by telephone, text (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) or AirBnB messages during your stay. My number (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN). If you can't get hold of me you can telephone my hosting service in an emergency on +(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) (calls only, don't text this last number, it won't be seen!). If you are arriving by plane, you can take the airport bus for €6, but will have a 15 minute walk from the drop-off point on Gardiner Street. If there are 3 of you or more, it is cheaper to take a taxi, which should cost between €18 and €30 depending on whether day (8am-8pm) or night (8pm - 8am) and number of passengers.
Other things to note
Unlimited 240mb broadband. WiFi. Smart TV with tv channels and online apps including Netflix (if you have your own subscription) and mirroring in living room and second Smart tv with DVD player in the twin bedroom. The free on-street parking is subject to availability on arrival, as the parking spaces are unallocated (arrive before 5.30pm on weekdays to make sure of a space). The house is on a very private street, which makes it very quiet and pleasant, but can be difficult to find, I will send detailed directions. Croke Park is 2 minutes walk away and the Spire (centre of O'Connell Street) is 20 minutes walk, while Temple Bar is a short bus ride away (or 25 minutes walk if feeling energetic). Dublin is a well-connected city - good 3G/4G signal almost everywhere for mobile internet, and nearly every bar and coffee shop in Dublin has free wifi.
This is a quiet neighbourhood with some elderly residents, so please be aware of this. No parties, loud music etc.
Please wash the dishes before you leave. A few unwashed cups would be acceptable if you are rushing for a flight, but don't leave a pile of dirty dishes in the sink for the cleaner, it is not her job.
I will consider pets, but there will be an additional cleaning charge, as a more thorough clean will be necessary, since subsequent guests may have an allergy to pet hairs.
- If guests lock themselves out of the property OR they do not place keys in the lockbox at checkout, a £50 fee will apply. If a guest loses a set of keys during their stay, an £80 fee will apply.

Avid traveller, I speak fluent Spanish, adequate French, bad German and can understand Italian and Portuguese (a little bit - don't expect too much!). Will do my best to make you feel welcome and comfortable.
