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 as 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.
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 nearly 13 years to a few months old. Two of my grandchildren ages 4 and 7 are French and live in Nice with my eldest daughter and French son-in-law. Two of my grandchildren ages 12.5 and 8.5 now live in the USA and the other four grandchildren are based in Dublin.
My daughter and fiancé live with me with their 2 children ages 3 and the baby is 7 months +.
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 €.

Carmel is very nice host. She helped us in all our efforts, and came to check us on the bus. We felt at home here at Carmel. We hope to return.
Notre séjour chez Carmel a été très agréable. La maison est chaleureuse et confortable. Elle se situe d'ailleurs près d'un supermarché et d'un arrêt de bus ce qui est très pratique. Enfin, Carmel est une personne qui a le cœur sur la main, elle a toujours été là pour nous aider et nous informer.
Carmel is a warm friendly helpful host. Her house is immaculate. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Couldnt ask for better.
