About our home
***MY HOME IS AVAILABLE FOR POINTS FROM THE 26TH JUNE - 10TH JULY - PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU ARE INTERESTED***
Our home was was completely renovated in 2010 and is a bright, peaceful spacious home suitable for a family getaway. Set over three floors, the house has five bedrooms, two living rooms, a large kitchen-dining area and a garden with patio perfect for al-fresco dining in the summer. Just 25 minutes from Dublin airport, and situated in the fishing village of Howth, with its numerous bars and restaurants, beach and cliff walks, sailing clubs, golf courses and bespoke shops, it is also just a 25 minute train journey from Dublin City Centre. A perfect location for discovering both Dublin city and its prettiest coastal suburbs.
“A wonderful place, people and time had in Howth. Easy to get around and enjoy the sites.
Highly recommend ”
Stayed July 2017
“Fionnuala and Todd were wonderful hosts from start to finish and made us feel very welcome in their home. Their house is very comfortable and perfect for a large family with plenty of space to relax both indoors and outdoors. It is located a short (albeit steep) walk from the beautiful village of Howth with plenty of wonderful restaurants / bars and things to do with the kids (park / beach / lighthouse etc). There are also a number of great family trips close by and Dublin is only a 30 min train ride.
I highly recommend this house for anyone wanting to experience a bit of warm Irish hospitality in a beautiful coastal village on the outskirts of Dublin. ”
