Other things to note

We have a baby who may cry loudly at times. This also means I am not always immediately available either online or in person.

Check-in time is 5PM - 11PM
Check out by 9AM

Please let me know what time to expect you at, so I will listen out for the doorbell - I cannot hear it from the back garden. If you could let me know by the day before, that would be ideal. Once I know your intended arrival time I will ensure I'm not bathing my toddler or getting him to sleep around that time.

Guests may leave luggage before check-in. Please arrange at least a day in advance.

Check-out time is 09:30
Please leave keys in the door of your room. You are welcome to leave luggage after check-out. Please arrange in advance.

Breakfast is provided until 10:00 and is laid out the night before so please serve yourselves. I will explain where things are at check-in. Milk, juice and butter can be found in the fridge.

If you have any special food requests or requirements, please let me know and I will hopefully be able to provide.

The kitchen is for use at breakfast only.

Please ensure the front door is closed when leaving the house. Sometimes the lock on the door doesn't click closed properly.

Please contact me on Airbnb messaging preferably. My mobile phone has bad signal in the house, so I rarely get calls and many texts arrive hours late. My phone is set to silent if I am putting my baby to sleep. If I do not respond to your message within a few hours, please message me again to remind me. Sometimes I am disturbed before I reply and because of the distractions of a baby I can forget that the message is not finished. My intention is always to respond.

Directions will be on your booking confirmation email. Please bring a copy of the directions and how to recognize the house with you on your journey - a simple screen shot or photo on your phone. This means you will find the house and it will not be an issue if you cannot get in touch with me immediately.

Heating and hot water:
There is underfloor heating throughout the house. Heating is set to 18 degrees upstairs and 20 degrees downstairs.

Hot water is set for 7am and 7pm. We have two large tanks to service the house, this is plenty but please do be mindful that taking a very long shower may empty the tanks. If you do find that the water is not as hot as you like, please let me know and I can switch it on for you. It takes about 20-30 mins to heat up.

No food is to be consumed in the bedrooms.

Non smoking household.

Only guests who have been booked in to stay are allowed to stay in the rooms.

Iron, ironing board, hairdryer, extra towels, pillows, blankets and usb plugs for charging phones are available on request.

If anything doesn't meet your needs or expectations during your stay, please let me know and I will do my best to amend.

Please leave a review after you stay. It is helpful for future guests and helps me ensure the accommodation and service I provide is accurately described and meets the expectations of guests.

Vanessa has a beautiful home which is very clean and safe location. A little tricky to find. Her breakfast is generous and appreciated having a very early start. Vanessa is busy and essentially uncontactable

Vanessa's home was beautifully decorated and Vanessa was a wonderful host, she was very welcoming and helpful with bus and transport queries. I really enjoyed my stay, Ben, her toddler was a pleasure to meet and I was treated like a friend of the family. The breakfast was laid out and ready for me to help myself, Vanessa had shown me around the kitchen when I arrived. There was lots of choice from pasteurise, cereal, toast, juice, tea etc and I was delighted with it. I would highly recommend Vanessa for really welcoming a guest into her home. It was a pleasure to stay with her family.

Interaction with guests

I am not always immediately available either online or in person because I have a toddler. The best way to contact me is on Airbnb messaging because my phone signal in the house is very bad. If I'm home and in the kitchen I'm happy to chat or give recommendations on things to do, just knock on the door. My toddler loves meeting guests too!

About Vanessa

My partner and I live in Dartry in south Dublin with our very active 2 year old. My partner has 2 other children who stay with us every second weekend, so at times we're a busier household. We have 3 rooms in our home listed on Airbnb. I enjoy yoga and creative arts. I'm interested in health & well being and being kind to the environment. I enjoy preparing nutritious, tasty, vegan food. I don't eat meat and rather the household be meat free also.
