The neighbourhood

Our house is located at the gate of the famous Phoenix Park. The house has a beautiful country feel about it but yet it is 10 minutes from the City Centre. We are within 10 mins drive of 5 golf courses, so we are ideal for golf enthusiasts. We are only 20 minutes drive also from the Dublin mountains again ideal for hill walkers,and those that like horse riding.The village of Castleknock is 5 minutes walk from the house. Here you have 5 restaurants 3 pubs and all local amenities like hair dressers, dry cleaners, beauticians etc.
As we are at the Phoenix Park gate, our house is ideally situated for any event being held in the Phoenix park, like BLOOM in June, IRON MAN in August and motor racing

Our stay in Sarah’s converted Stables in the Phoenix Park was a great surprise – with all the amenities of the Phoenix Park literally over the back wall – the location is just great. The House is well equipped with 4 double bedrooms and everything you might need for your stay – the House has the luxury of an Indoor Swimming Pool and Sauna which is for exclusive use by the guests ! You share the Courtyard with the family house and dogs, but they are very friendly and welcoming. There is also a Games room with a Pool Table, giant Sports TV & Gym equipment. Our stay was really enjoyable and Sarah was a really welcoming host. It was my partner's birthday, and Sarah left us in the flat Flowers, prosecco, smoked salmon, chocolate !! Very nice attention, thanks again ! I will definetely recommand Sarah's Home.

Excellent location, right on the edge of the lovely Phoenix Park, easy access to airport and The City. Sarah and Michael are fabulous hosts, they welcome you in to their amazing home and will do anything to make your stay very special. The swimming pool, sauna and games were fantastic extras to the lovely accommodation spaces. We could not recommend The Stables high enough, we will definitely be back.

This is a super venue. We loved the pool and sauna and if the weather had been unkind there was enough to do with the Pool Room and Fitness Room to keep everyone happy. Sarah certainly knows about Irish hospitality.

Sarah's home was wonderful for us. I would say if you wanted to stay here be sure to stay for more than one evening. You need to take the time to enjoy the space. Overall it was a wonderful stay. Sarah was sweet and even walked quite a ways to help us find her house. She hopped in the back and said drive! Her husband was helpful as well. Overall it was a great stay. If you have the time be sure to stay with them. Easily one of the best Airbnbs we've stayed in.

Hi Sean, thank you for your kind review. Hope I didn't frighten you when I jumped into the back of the car ( Haha). It really was a pity you did not have time to explore the area, but maybe there will be a next time. Again lovely meeting you both Sarah
