The bus stop is 5 mins walk from our house and 8 mins walk to the train station. We have two Double rooms and a Single room available with wifi access and two full shower rooms available to guests. I am also happy to provide a light breakfast if required.
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.

Martina was super,let us use kitchen..Bed was very comfortable.. Will stay there again
Highly recommend - The stay at Martina’s house is super good. Clean, cozy and quiet. Martina's family is very friendly. I missed my hometown a lot, she made me feel a warm family atmosphere. I was able to create great memories in Dublin.
Staying at Martina and Brendon’s was just perfect! They gave me and my friend Mollie the best service, helped us with getting the bus and what stops to go to and stop at. Recommended great pubs and bars and were so kind and hospitable! We will be coming back! Thank you both!!
We quickly felt very comfortable at Martina's place. Martina is adorable, laughing and very helpful, the perfect host. We keep in touch for sure
Excellent séjour. Martina et son mari Brandon sont des hôtes charmants, très à l'écoute de leurs invités. Nous avons apprécié de discuter avec eux. Leur maison est bien située et il est facile de se rendre dans le centre de Dublin.
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Martina e Brendon sono stati due ospiti molto gentili e ci hanno fornito tutte le indicazioni su come muoverci al meglio a Dublino e cosa vedere, le nostre camere erano spaziose e luminose e per colazione c'era molta scelta. E' stato un soggiorno piacevole anche per i ragazzi che hanno adorato dormire in mansarda! Host consigliato! Caterina
