Thank you for our great stay at your lovely, well-equipped house.
We felt really welcome and were very comfortable.
Monkstown certainly is a special village, having so many nice restaurants and other amenities, the sea and lots of transport stops.
We hope that we might stay again at some future time, if we are in Dublin.
We stayed at the Monkstown townhouse for five weeks August and September. The house was great. Spotlessly clean and equipped with every thing you could possibly need for your stay. Nice little garden to have coffee in. Pat was wonderfully helpful when we needed something and gave us privacy when we did not. Nice friendly neighbors..
The location is great, close to the Dart, buses, the sea front. If you feel like walking along the seafront Blackrock and Dun Laoghaire are close by. Farmers market in Dun Laoghaire on Sundays worth a visit. We frequented several restaurants nearby. FXB The Bar , Fresh Salt at Avoca. And Seapoint restaurant.
This was so much better than staying in a hotel for five weeks. An added bonus (washer/dryer).
A very good experience. We will be back another time. We will definitely recommend it to friends.
Thanks for the great weather Pat, only one rainy week out of the five the rest was glorious. Not sure how you organised that for us!!
The house was very nice, clean and confortable, very close to transport services to Dublin city (bus and DART) close
to the shops and pubs of Monkstown village
Patricia welcomed us so cheerfully, everything was prepared
in advance with little attentions such coffee, milk and sweets
at our arrival, house provided bed linen and towels which
was very convenient for us arriving by plane
we had a great and SUNNY week, Dublin is very worth
visiting and the WICKLOW moutains amazing ! The little
garden at the back of the house was very pleasant to rest
after our visits and walks and we appreciated the seaside
Many thanks to our hostess, we will recommend this place to our friends travelling to Dublin in the next future
We were only guest residents in this lovely townhouse for four nights and would happily have stayed for four weeks. Literally everything was just as described, or better. It is a superb, quiet location, with comfortable beds and every possible creature comfort is provided. Everything was clean and well maintained, plenty of hot water for showering and the chance to use the laundering machines would have made a longer stay simple.
Although we did not partake of the 'fine dining' spots in the village (which do indeed require a reservation, as noted by another reviewer), we had a lovely meal during the World Cup playoffs in Goggins Pub, just up at the corner. We loved the breakfast options at Café du Journal and thoroughly enjoyed shopping for delicious provisions in the Avoca store. SPAR had anything else we needed.
The DART trip into Dublin was quick and easy and the maps which Pat provided made all of our explorations quite simple. The seaside walk was so close and the views were delightful. We also visited a private garden in nearby Blackrock, which we found on the Dublin Garden Group website. Highly recommended.
Pat was so kind and generous, answering countless small questions before our arrival, arranging to let us 'move in' early in the day, since our flight arrived at 5AM and leaving a box of tea, fresh milk and cereal for our immediate needs. Although we only met briefly, it was a comfort to know that she was nearby, had we needed assistance.
If we are fortunate enough to return to the Dublin area, we will definitely choose to return to #8. I recommend it highly to any couple or small family. Five stars all the way!
This townhouse is everything it's claimed to be. It's a modern, very clean, generously furnished and equipped home at the end of a quite cul de sac. The location is perfect for long walks along Dublin Bay. Nearby restaurants are first class, but make sure you book early because they are popular. The owner's family was kind and very helpful. We'd really like to stay again.
As a native Dubliner, this is the perfect little house and location for me on my trips back. Pat has provided everything you could possibly need. For a special experience in Dublin, you couldn't ask for a nicer place or location to stay... close to the sea, lovely coffee shops & restaurants and the bus passes the door if you don't have a car. A real home from home. Thanks Pat.
Lovely house in a very peaceful setting, yet only 5 minutes walk to shops, restaurants, bus and dart links. Very well equipped property with the bonus of outdoor space. Fantastic internet and television service. Pat is close by, should there be any problems (however in our case, we did not need her). We stayed for a month and did not want to leave! We would recommend leap cards for travel on the dart, luas and bus. The towns of Blackrock and Dun Loaghaire are both a short walk away and offer even more restaurants, shops and activities. We would thoroughly recommend this property.
Set in a quiet enclave, the house is just a three minute walk to the fashionable coastal village of Monkstown, which offers high quality restaurants, specialist food stores, boutiques, garden/design centre, churches, cafes and landmark pubs along with usual village amenities of post office, ATM, pharmacy, hair salon, newsagents, dry-cleaners, grocery and other stores.
A swimming pool and fitness centre is located about 250 meters from the village.
Monkstown is also home to the headquarters of Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eireann, an Institute that promotes traditional Irish music and culture and events regularly take place here.
A 5 minute walk from the house brings you to the seafront, with access to Seapoint beach near the Martello tower, and also to the Dublin suburban rapid Rail service (DART) at Monkstown station.
The bus stop for the hourly Aircoach to and from Dublin Airport is just a three minute walk from the house.
This stop is also on the main bus route to Dublin city centre. Buses from Monkstown stop directly outside the RDS (Royal Dublin Society) in Ballsbridge, where the renowned Dublin International Horse Show takes place each August and other events such as major concerts, Arts and Antique Fairs, Young Scientist and other exhibitions are held throughout the year. These buses also stop beside the National Gallery of Ireland, which is very close to Trinity College and Dublin city centre.
Monkstown is just one kilometre from Dunlaoghaire with it's lovely harbour, promenade, yacht clubs and two piers along with live theatre, multiplex cinema, library, shops, pubs and restaurants.
Stena Line Ferries operate a rapid ferry service between Dunlaoghaire and Holyhead.
Golfing enthusiasts can arrange to play at Killiney Golf Club, near Dunlaoghaire or alternatively at Elm Park Golf Club, closer to Dublin. Tennis is also available by arrangement.
Those interested in literature can, just one km beyond Dunlaoghaire, enjoy a visit to James Joyce Tower and museum in Sandycove, where part of Joyces masterpiece, Ulysses, was written.
For lovers of horse-racing, Leopardstown Racecourse is 8 km from Monkstown.
The M50 Motorway, giving access to the national motorway network, is also at a distance of 8km.
