The space
If you want a clean, warm and cosy room within 5km of the city centre, in the embassy-belt and one of the safest and most exclusive areas in Dublin, look no further. We're right next to the beach too for a stroll in the evening For 49 euro you will get a spotlessly clean private bedroom, with freshly laundered bed linen, 2 pillows, a desk, chair, good wifi, side lamp, an extra blanket and an electric under blanket for those long cold winter nights. You (and a second guest if the 2nd room is also booked) will have sole use of the main bathroom of the house, which includes a powerful Grohe shower.

I also provide freshly cleaned towels, complimentary shampoo, conditioner, shower gel toiletries, toothpaste etc along with a large bottle of drinking water, and some introductory snacks for your first night as I don’t provide kitchen access.
However, there is a 24/7 convenience store 200 metres from the house for supplies and a little cafe serving hot snacks. On top of the EUR 49 room rate, there is a EUR 7 one-off cleaning fee charged per booking.
BUT
Dirty bathrooms are my bugbear and this is reflected in my House Rules which I would kindly ask all prospective guests to read before booking.

My House Rules have been known to cause distress; I kid you not, you have been warned. I also have them printed and displayed on the bedroom and bathroom walls too so for those of you of a sensitive disposition please STOP reading now - this place will not suit you.

Rules such as removing shoes at the front door or being asked to leave the shared bathroom clean after use (or in the condition, you would like to find it) causes some guests to feel very affronted. This is not my intention, I love sharing my home with like-minded people - who say a big, fat NO to dirty shared bathrooms Over the past 8 years 99% of my guests liked this too (please read my feedback) but to the 1 percenters - who take personal offence to my House Rules and the fact that I post them on the bathroom wall, bedroom wall and maybe a few other places around the house - I make no apologies- and ask that you overlook my listing and find somewhere more amenable to your sensibilities.

If you've read this far and haven't thrown anything at your computer screen yet then I think you'll like it here. If you’ve managed to get through the House Rules without thinking ‘how very dare she’; or even "hey I don't mind clean freaks' then please give my listing your kind consideration and be assured that I will do everything I can to ensure you have a very pleasant stay and a spotlessly clean bathroom :)

Check-in to be requested in advance of booking Mon - Fri - between 6.30 - 11ish Sat/Sun flexible but need a 2 hr window 24 hrs in advance.

Parking is free and on a 1st come - 1st served basis. If you want a guaranteed spot
you need to message me BEFORE you book to see if I can confirm my dedicated spot for you. This is because I have 2 rooms on Airbnb but can only guarantee one spot and it might already be booked by a guest.

About Sandymount:
Sandymount Village, awash with local bakeries, gift shops, boutiques and cafes. Sandymount Strand is also a quick jaunt away from the village, grab some fresh fish and golden chips, with liberal amounts of salt and vinegar, and investigate the most famous beach in Irish fiction. James Joyce’s novel Ulysses was set here, and indeed you can see the Sandymount Martello Tower here, too. W.B. Yeats was born here, and Seamus Heaney lived in Sandymount for many years.

Guest access
Own private bedroom with key.
Shared bathroom.
No kitchen access - but Tea/Coffee making facilities can be requesed for the bedroom and some complementary treats provided if advance notice is given or before your arrival.
No clothes washing but the 24 hr garage 200 metres down the beach road has washin and drying machines available 24/7 if you need to wash clothes

Other things to note
Security is very important here - we have children so please LOCK THE FRONT DOOR both after you enter and exit - please watch the short (55 sec) video link, emailed to your messages inbox, . Please read the house rules before booking.
Please remove your outdoor shoes at the front door. I provide slippers or you can walk in your sox.
Please only take 10 minute showers (high power pump) between 6.30am and 11.30pm only (noise of pump disturbs others sleeping)

Turn out lights when finished in an area so I can maintain my rate and we can do our bit to save the planet.
Non-smokers only please.
No kitchen access.
No laundry faciilties.
No hot food in bedrooms.
We have a lovely lilac Burmese cat called Casper but if you're afraid of cats or don't like them then our place probably wouldn't be suitable.
