We have two adult bikes and one teenagers' bike available for your use. Maynooth is part of the Royal Canal Greenway https://greenwaysireland.org/royal-canal-greenway. Our car is a Skoda Estate which we are happy for you to use.
We are located in the pretty University town of Maynooth, which is 25km from Dublin City Centre. Maynooth is 30 mins by car to Dublin city centre and in the Dublin city bus and rail network so there are several bus routes (Dublin Bus) and commuter trains to Dublin city centre daily. The website www.discoverireland.ie has lots of information on the many tourist attractions in Dublin City. Maynooth itself is a lovely, vibrant, university-town with many good shops, hotels, restaurants and pubs. Maynooth is beside the M4/5/6 motorway which links to the West and North West of Ireland.
Our house is in the Moyglare Abbey estate and is about a 10-15 minute walk from the centre of Maynooth town. There are many major tourist attractions near to Maynooth, obviously Dublin with all its attractions but also near us you can visit Newgrange, Trim castle, the National Stud and Japanese gardens, the Boyne Valley and much more.

Maynooth is a lovely, picturesque, university town with many nice restaurants, hotels and bars. The town is very well serviced and has several shopping centres and one large retail park. The town is also near to the Liffey Valley shopping centre. Our house is in the Moyglare Abbey estate and it takes about 10-15 minutes to walk to the centre of Maynooth town. We are near the country side but also near to the train and bus stations with regular services to Dublin City. The Royal Canal goes through Maynooth and there is a park on the grounds of the college. There are numerous equestrian centres in the area. Maynooth is just off the M4/N4 motorway and near the M50 motorway and so it is a good location from which to explore the island of Ireland.
