My Family Home:
I live in a 4 bedroom semi-detached house in a residential area close to a beautiful park and lots of open green spaces. It is a very comfortable house with a modern upgraded central heating system. The external walls front and back have been insulated to a very high standard.
The large back bedroom consists of a very comfortable queen size bed with built-in wardrobes and two bedside lockers with lamps. During the pandemic this room has been updated with new wooden floors and walls freshly painted. There is a fabulous view of the Dublin Mountains from this airy bedroom. The double bedroom has WiFi and a spare set of bed linen for long stay guests who will be responsible for keeping their own bedrooms clean and tidy and changing bed linen if they stay for longer than 2 weeks.
The front bedroom is a single occupancy bright clean room. It has WiFi and a spare set of bed linen for long stay guests who will be responsible for keeping their own bedrooms clean and tidy and changing bed linen if they stay for longer than 2 weeks.
I have a lovely conservatory which I use all year round as I enjoy the view of my patio back garden which has a very nice granite table and granite seats for those sunny days of barbecuing and eating outside. This room has a Smart TV /WiFi and stereo system in it with a nice comfortable sofa/bed. This room has also been recently re-floored and the walls painted.
Downstairs there is a WC with a wash-hand basin which has also has new floor tiling and the walls painted during the pandemic. The kitchen is separated by the conservatory and dining room and includes all mod cons such as microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, plenty of cooking utensils etc. Guests have the use of these facilities especially if they are here on a long stay.
I have wireless internet throughout the house so this would be great for students who use Skype/Zoom to keep in contact with family. My sitting room is to the front of the house with Large TV with many channels.
I live 5 minutes away from the 15/65B bus stops which will take you directly into the city. The 15 bus operates every 10 minutes during the day and every 20-25 after 20.00.
The 65B is not as frequent but is a shorter journey to and from the city.
The 175 bus brings you directly to University College Dublin (UCD) it takes 40 minutes it depends on how busy traffic is. You can rent bikes from the university https://ucdestates.ie/blog/2017/10/13/bleeperbikes-are-now-available-throughout-campus/
The Institute of Technology Tallaght (Tallaght University) is about a 12 minute cycle or 30 minute walk. You can get the 175 bus which is 4-5 minute walk from my house and a short bus ride away.
Lidl is a short walk from my house to do your grocery shopping.
I live close to some of the famous traditional pubs Johnny Foxes and The Merry PloughBoy which is very popular for tourists to frequent.
I live on a very quiet road with plenty of greenery all around and a local pub Scholars about 3-4 minutes’ walk from my house. I live very close to the M50 motorway so if any guest wanted to travel to any other part of Ireland they have easy access north or southbound by rental car.
I have 8 grandchildren, 5 girls and 3 boys ranging in ages from 14 years to 20 months old. Two of my grandchildren ages 5 and 8 are French and live in Nice with my eldest daughter and French son-in-law. Two of my grandchildren ages 14 and 10 now live in the USA. Two live in Cornwall England ages 20 months and 4 years and the other tow grandchildren are based in Dublin and are ages 4 and 7.
Si les clés principales de la porte d'entrée sont perdues par un invité, vous devez payer le remplacement du verrou et de nouvelles clés. C'est très cher et pourrait coûter plus de 200 €.

My stay with carmel went very well, the house is very clean and carmel is the perfect host. It leaves me with even better memories of Dublin!
If you want to feel as at home, Carmel's house is perfect place. House is warm and cosy, full of positive energy. Carmel is the most amazing person. She will help you no matter what. My partner and I were welcomed so well that we felt as part of family. We will never forget our time with Carmel. We loved our night chats with Carmel with cup of tea. House is located in nice area, near to the bus line 175 so you can take direct bus to the UCD. There are also direct lines to the Dundrum, Tallaght. Also, if you like hiking you can go to Dublin mountains as house is near, and you can see it from one of the rooms. The house is big and recently renovated. Lidl is away 10 minutes of walking, so you can easily shop what you need. You will not regret if you choose Carmel's place to stay, no matter is is couple of days or months. Coming from other country and leaving your family and friends is certainly one of the hardest thing to do. Therefore, to come in home as this means a world.
In Carmel's house I felt completely comfortable, welcome, safe, calm, and at home, from the first moment I entered. Carmel will offer you all her confidence, generosity, sweetness, and wisdom as your host. In addition to having an exceptional human being as an owner, the house itself has everything you need: it is clean, spacious, comfortable, very warm, well equipped, and with easy connection to the transport network. As if that wasn't enough, the price is very reasonable.
I could not recommend the stay with Carmel more. I will be forever grateful to have met her and to have received her generosity and fantastic energy for two weeks. Do not hesitate to reserve this place if you see find it available!
My stay in Carmel’s house was nothing short of Perfect. Carmel is a perfect host. She is concerned and caring and took the extra mile to make me feel welcome, the other house guests were also very kind. The house was very clean, and all facilities were easily accessible. I can't miss mentioning the house's excellent insulation, which made it very warm and cozy. I felt right at home when I was there and if any guest gets a chance to stay in Carmel’s house, consider yourself fortunate to have the best stay of your life!
The only downside of my stay was that it was short but I would run back if Carmel ever wanted to have me there. Carmel is a gem of a person; everyone should get the opportunity to meet her at least once in their lifetime!
Carmel es una anfitriona muy atenta y amable. Me acogió a mi y a mi novio como si fuésemos parte de su familia. Nos ayudó en nuestra mudanza a Dublín, en la búsqueda de piso y de trabajo. La habitación era grande y confortable, y el resto de la casa siempre estaba a nuestra disposición. La casa está en un barrio residencial muy tranquilo y bonito, con un gran servicio de transporte público de buses. Os recomendamos quedaros aquí si tenéis la oportunidad, vais a amar formar parte de esta familia.
We loved staying here, and really recommend it to everyone!
I spent two days in Dublin, and i'm glad about staying at Carmel's house !
A peaceful place near Dublin (bus 15) and a lovely person and family ! I already know where to stay next time i have to go in Dublin
Ces quelques jours à Dublin ont était superbe avec un logement très arrangeant Carmel est bienveillante et nous a conseillé sur les endroits à aller visiter. La chambre est parfaite et Carmel est pleine de petites attention (banane, pomme et main offert à notre arrivée ainsi que toutes nos demandes diverses)... Je recommande vivement vous ne serez pas déçu!
My wife and I had the perfect stay with Carmel. As a host we could not recommend her highly enough. We found her exceptionally caring, helpful, friendly and generous while still giving us all the privacy that we needed. The accommodation itself was very tasteful and so HOMELY and we hope to return again in the near future.
I had a great stay at Carmel's; Lovely environment and comfy room!
She is super caring and has a welcoming family. I'm very grateful.
Besides, the location is close to supermarket, bus stop, and a beautiful park to walk, relax and exercise.
My experience was all positive; I super recommend!!
I had a wonderful stay at Carmel's house! She made sure I was safe, that I had the right directions to not get lost in Dublin and looked after me when I got a little sick. I enjoyed our talks, she is an amazing host and her family is the loveliest I met in Ireland!
