About Daniel Haydock

Hi there,

My name is Daniel (23), I'm a recent graduate of Business and Spanish at University College Dublin. I now work for KPMG professional services and manage this property on behalf of my parents who aren't as tech savvy!

My brother Conor (19) occasionally steps in while I'm at work to meet and greet guests as well as assist with turnovers!

Why Daniel Haydock chose Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown

This property although attached to our main house is entirely self contained with it's own entrance, kitchen and living area. The property itself is surrounded by a large mature garden and has ample parking.

The house is located just 30 minutes from Dublin City Centre and Dublin Airport making it ideal for short visits.

Set on the border of Dublin and Wicklow, The Nook is very close to some of the best nature Ireland has to offer with places like Powerscourt, Glendalough and Kilruddery all a short drive away.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The home is gated meaning it is very secure, it also has access to a full sized all weather tennis court with rackets provided.

We are well linked by public transport with the bus and dart only 2 km away.

Clean, secure, beautiful rental

  • 5 of 5

This property is well maintained and very spacious with very gracious hosts. We enjoyed the local area around Bray as well as the easy access to the Wicklow Park region and Dublin. Train access was close by and really a nice easy way to enter Dublin. I would definitely book this location again! My only addition that would make this place absolutely perfect would be a washing machine and dryer.

Comfortable - cute - a bit distu

  • 4 of 5

Overall enjoyed our stay. Daniel was quite attentive. My only complaint was it was a bit dusty around the TV with small dust bunnies on a few of the walls.

Aside from this we had a wonderful time, the property was great, parking was easy. We hired a car to drive around the area. Thank you so much!

Beautiful Property

  • 4 of 5

This rental unit is attached to a lovely home with beautiful grounds. It's not too far from the light rail transit station, but you do need a car. The bedrooms are quite large, whereas, the living, kitchen and bath are a bit small. Plenty of parking, and the property has an automatic gate, so very secure.

The washer/dryer are not in the unit - you need to inquire with the owner to get access.

This was our first time to Ireland, and this was the first place we stayed. We found it challenging to find the place (got lost), so be sure to get clear instructions, including the name of the development, and the name of the house, as there are no addresses like we're used to in USA.

Owner-managed, and their response time is good.

Daniel was the perfect host. He even remembered that my husband and I were celebrating our 30th and greeted us with a card and candy. Beautiful property. Convenient to many sites
