We are a semi retired couple who will be travelling to Australia in March or April 2017. As this will be our first visit, we hope to base ourselves in Sydney for a month and make trips by air to other places of interest. We live in a nice old cottage in the suburbs, about three miles from Dublin city centre. We are well served by public transport and there is a train station nearby which brings you to the city in ten minutes. We are a 30 minute walk from a nice beach. The coastline is very pretty and the mountains are less than an hours drive. Dublin is a great spot to base yourself for a trip to Ireland/Europe as Ryanair runs lots of cheap flights to Europe.
About Our Home
There are two bedrooms and a large reception room which has a sofa bed. It is a spacious and well maintained home with Some nice antique furniture. The apt has a balcony and a lift and overlooks a beautiful park and the alps in the distance. We are going to Australia last week in Feb 2017 and will stay for 4 weeks. We can swap our home in Dublin or our lovely holiday home in fabulous Nice, France for a non simultaneous swap.

Our home in Nice is let out for holiday leggings and guests always remark that the location is excellent. THe bedrooms are at the back of the building and on the 4th floor so nice and quiet. The views and the park opposite the apt are also great. Children love the playgrounds nearby and the sea is less than ten minutes walk. OUr home in Dublin is good base for exploring the lovely coastal towns of Howth and Malahide. There are many castles and stately homes to visit within a short drive. The Botanic gardens in Glasnevin and the rose gardens in nearby St. Anne's park are nice ways to spend an afternoon. There are lovely beaches to walk and there is a farmers market on a Saturday in the local park. Day trips to Wicklow are also very enjoyable. Dublin is a good base for your stay in Ireland and we recommend a few weekend trips to Galway, Kerry and West Cork.
