***Please read our house rules first and tell us a little bit about yourself and the reason for travelling if you decide to contact us***

Come to live as a real Dubliner in the most central area of Dublin. What we offer you is a comfortable double bedroom in a georgian building just located in front of the Parliament. You cannot get any more central than that! Restaurants, pubs, shops...everything is literally 5 minutes walk from the building! The area is super safe, you can walk home at any time of the night without any problem. You won't even need a taxi, apart from the one that will bring you to and from the airport. (But we also have the Airlink 757 bus stop from/to the airport just in front of the building! And also the Hop on Hop off bus stop is just in front of us!)
I'm Italian and I have been living in Dublin for 10 years, so not only can I give you useful information about the city, but you can also experience a little bit of Italy while you stay in Dublin. I live here with my husband, who is Irish, and he will introduce you to the beauty of the Emerald isle, the rugby, our tasteful craft beers, the wonderful nature, and of course...where the craic is!!

Luas and Dart stations are also 5 minutes walking. 2 huge main parks -St. Stephen's Green and Merrion Square are 1 minute away. A supermarket and a gym are just around the corner along with restaurants, pubs, etc. etc.

House Rules

We prefer a kind of guest who is here to visit the city, and not spending most of the day at home :) So, basically...a tourist (or a professional here for a business trip). You are obviously more than welcome to share with us a cup of tea or a coffee and have a chat when you are at home to relax, if you wish.

We will provide sheets, towels, hair dryer, toiletries and iron.

We are 2 very clean and tidy people and we ask that our guests leave the room and the common area clean as they find it.
That means:

- cleaning the bathroom sink and the shower/bath (given that is shared) with sponge and detergent after use. Cleaning WC with brush.
- as we have carpets throughout, please remove shoes when at home
- No use of the kitchen: we only offer a good breakfast (at an agreed time the night before).

Also:
- PLEASE NOTE THAT A PHOTOCOPY OF YOUR PASSPORT OR ANY OTHER NATIONAL ID IS MADE UPON ARRIVAL
- no party people, drunk or noisy people. You are free to come home at any time, but please be quiet, for us and for the neighbours, especially between 10.30 pm and 7.00 am
- it is not permitted to bring other people at home
- this is a no smoking building
- there is free access to Internet
- if keys are lost there will be a charge of 30 euro
- no food and no pets in the room.
- check in: 14.00 pm, or as differently agreed: communication of expected time of arrival required at least 24 hours in advance
- check out time 11.00 am

Last but not least:
PLEASE NOTE PAYMENT: CASH UPON ARRIVAL
* For St. Patrick's days the cancellation policy for the refund of the 25% deposit (prepaid at the moment of the booking) is 30 days, and NOT 7 days. Full refund of this 25% deposit in case of cancellation with at least 30 days notice, no refund after that.

Smoking is not allowed.

    Lorenz is very welcoming and helpful.
    The apartment is easily reachable from the airport by bus and the bus stop is located right in front of the building.
    The house is neat, clean and bright.
    A nice experience, everyone's advice to try.

    Nos sentimos como en casa, fueron muy amables con nosotros, y nos dieron muy buenos consejos. Tuvimos algún problema con la reserva de un tour, y nos ayudaron a resolverlo satisfactoriamente. Si volvemos a Dublin, probablemente nos alojemos nuevamente allí. David y Lorenz, unos muy buenos anfitriones. Saben tratar muy bien a sus inquilinos. Gracias a los dos, de parte de Guillermo y Manuela.

    I put only 5 stars but they deserve 10. They are friendly good people. The location is perfect, you can just walk everywhere.
    I felt like I was at home. I wish I could come back to your home.

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) and a 25% deposit using a choice of payments: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal. The deposit is collected in advance on behalf of the host to protect against no show or late cancellations (within 7 days of arrival). You then pay your host the balance due on arrival. The 25% deposit payment is made to the host 2 business days after your scheduled arrival date. This deposit payment will only be refunded if you cancel the booking at least 7 full days prior to arrival.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
