About the Homestay
Hi, I am Martina and I am looking forward to welcoming you into our home that I share with my husband Brendan and our 9 year old Cavalier King Charles Bobby. We have two children who are now adults and one grandchild. We are located on the west side of Dublin City in a quiet suburb called Blanchardstown Village. We are 20mins drive from Dublin Airport (taxi approx 25 euro) and 25 mins by bus (3 buses to choose from into the city centre) or 20 mins by train to the city centre. The bus stop is 5 mins walk from our house and 8 mins walk to the train station. There is also a late night bus available up to 4am on Friday and Saturday nights from the city centre. We have a twin room available with wifi access and two full shower rooms available to guests. I am also happy to provide a light breakfast if required. Payment on arrival please.
Our house is close to many amenities including The Phoenix Park, Dublin Zoo, The National Aquatic Centre, Blanchardstown Institute of Technology and Connolly Hospital to name but a few. We also have Blanchardstown Shopping Centre within walking distance where you will enjoy plenty of shops, restaurants, cinemas and the local theatre, here you will find some wonderful entertainment. There is also a great gym within walking distance.
