Experience authentic Georgian elegance is this unique large OVAL studio apartment, overlooking park. Accommodates two in cosy sleeping loft. Light a fire, cook dinner in the designer kitchen, and then head out to enjoy the attractions of the city.
Come stay in one of Dublin's unique Georgian apartments, a perfect oval room, situated on Mountjoy Square, in the heart of Dublin's North Georgian core, and just minutes from O'Connell Street. This large studio apartment is on the ground floor of a beautiful redbrick townhouse, built in 1792. Both house and apartment retain all their original features, combined with modern comforts. The apartment has a fantastic 10ft window and overlooks a quiet side street, with an oblique view of the park.

It has a comfortable contract-quality double bed, Siberian white goose down duvet and pillows and pure Pima/Egyptian cotton sheets. Read in comfort with vintage Anglepoise reading lights. PLEASE NOTE there is restricted headroom in the sleeping loft, and consequently, the bed is low. ALSO, while the apartment faces a relatively quiet side street, it is on the corner of a fairly busy main road, so there will be traffic noise....

KARIN'S GUIDE TO THE CITY LOCAL GROCERY SHOPPING, SERVICES AND BREAKFAST OPTIONS In general, shopping hours are 9.30-6pm, with late-night shopping till 8pm on Thursdays. Sunday opening is from noon. BREAKFAST The Kingfisher Café, a no-frills 'caff' on the corner of Parnell Square and Parnell Street West is good for breakfast, with friendly and efficient service. Good value, and good fish and chips later in the day. The Old Music Store on North Frederick Street, a few blocks NW of us, does a good Irish breakfast in comfortable surroundings. LOCAL GROCERY SHOPPING Tops in Pops, just down the street to the right, for fresh local produce and basic groceries, 8.30am to 6pm Monday to Saturday. They are a fourth-generation local business, who have been trading on the site since 1931. The Londis corner store next door opens 8am to 10pm, but charge for privilege. There is an ATM machine at the back, right hand side of the store. Dunne's Stores, is the indigenous supermarket and department store chain, and has branches in every sizeable town throughout the country. There are two local branches. In North Earl Street, opposite O’Connell Street’s Spire, the Off-Licence (liquor store) is in a separate premises, a few doors apart - look for the James Joyce statue. You will find a bigger branch in the ILAC Shopping Centre, flanked by Henry Street, Moore Street and Parnell Street West (Moore Street entrance is opposite Paris Bakery). There is Metro Tesco on Parnell Street West, just past the Rotunda Hospital. A main branch is to be found in the basement of the Jervis Centre, off Henry Street. Carney’s Butchers, is another multi-generational local family business, which prides itself on the quality of its meat. In keeping with local tradition, they sell fresh fish on Friday’s. F.X. Buckley’s Butchers have two local branches; Moore Street and Talbot Street. This is a very old Dublin business and they have everything; free-range pork, beef and lamb from their own herds, poultry, game in season and fish, and, in the Moore Street branch, a deli counter for cooked meats next door. They are very obliging, and the lads have a great line in smart (sassy) chat. PHARMACIES Foley's Pharmacy on Parnell Street East is a 100+ year-old family business; they are very helpful. Opening hours: Monday-Saturday 9am 6pm. There is a late-night pharmacy, Hickey’s at 55 Lower O’Connell Street, (west side, within the block closest to the river). Opening hours: 8am -10pm M-F, 8.30am-10pm Saturday. 10am 10pm Sunday. Web: (EMAIL HIDDEN) POST OFFICES Our nearest Post Office is the Main City Post Office, the GPO, on O’Connell Street. 1828 façade, but badly damaged in the 1916 Rising, and largely rebuilt in 1928. The main hall is beautiful, with its entire original, 1928, fittings intact. It also contains the iconic statue, by Oliver Shepherd, The Dying Cuchullain. You will find a booklet with postal rates in the black folder. BANKS Allied Irish Bank has a branch on O’Connell Street, at the SW junction with Parnell Street, opposite the Rotunda Hospital. There is a bank of ATMs in the wall, on the O'Connell Street facade. Bank of Ireland has a branch at Lower O’Connell Street, on the east side of the street, between Middle Abbey Street and Ashton Quay. ATM inside, opens 8am to 9pm.

Call for appointment. Tel:(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN). NORTHSIDE LOCAL RESTAURANTS AND CAFES: 'The Cobalt Cafe', in a beautiful Georgian house on North Great Georges Street, which doubles as a gallery, is great for lunch. Parnell Street, Dublin's emerging 'Chinatown' is just a half a block to the south. Mr Fox, on Parnell Square West is our local fine dining restaurant, serving modern Irish food in a smart and comfortable setting. The menu is interesting and inventive, and they have a separate vegetarian menu, which has had the same care lavished on it. Nearer the river, 'Le Bon Crubeen' (crubeen=pig's trotter- it's a modern Franco-Irish restaurant) is on Talbot Street, as is the venerable and immensely popular 'Talbot 101'. It is packed to the gunnels with locals between 5.54 and 7.15, enjoying their pre-theatre supper before the Abbey curtains rise at 7.30, when they relinquish their seats for the rest of us! On the riverfront, I love Panem, facing the Millennium Bridge, for a quick coffee and a delicious Sicilian almond biscuit, baked on the premises. A few doors down, you'll find a cluster of Italian bars, cafes and restaurants serving good quality food. Half a block to the east is the trendy 'Winding Stairs' restaurant, with its book-lined walls (relics of a former second-hand bookshop-cum-cafe of the same name), while The Woollen Mills, opposite the Halfpenny Bridge, has a sophisticated casual menu, based on 'plates' for sharing.Back on Capel Street, locals rave about Brother Hubbard for lunch. LOCAL PUBS include the 'Hill 16' just opposite the house, on Gardiner Street - very popular with the GAA crowd on match days (the Gaelic Athletic Association Stadium, Croke Park, is just 3 blocks to the east), they pull a superb 'pint'. ‘The Heritage Parnell’, on Parnell Street West, just around the corner from O’Connell Street 'The Flowing Tide', on the corner of Marlborough Street, opposite the Abbey Theatre, is one of my favorites - after the curtain goes down in the Abbey, half the cast are likely to be at the bar. A few doors closer to O’Connell Street is Mulligan’s, another very nice pub, dating from the Edwardian era. 'The Church' on Mary Street, in a converted 1720's church, is another fine place for a drink; the former owner won many accolades for the high quality of the restoration. Capel Street has many typical local pubs, which have the added benefit of serving a largely local population. They include Mc’Neill’s' which is good for traditional music, and Slattery's . 'The Black Sheep' has the local craft beers covered, and does good bar food, (as does its sister pub, ‘The Brew Dock’, on Store Street, at the bottom of Gardiner Street. The north side traditional music 'musician’s' bar is 'The Cobblestone', at the top of Smithfield, and is suitably grungy. DEPARTMENT STORES AND FASHION Henry Street, off O’Connell Street, to the West, at the SPIRE, is the premier shopping street on the north side of the river. Here you will find Arnott’s the local department store, which highlights Irish fashion and design, throughout the store, and has several nice cafes. Henry Street also contains large branches of Debenhams and Marks&Spencers, as well as branches of most of the high street fashion chains. There are two large shopping centres, the Jervis, with a large branch of Tesco’s in the Basement, and the ILAC, which has a Dunnes Department Store, with a Food Hall in the basement. (You can shop for fresh produce on adjacent Moore Street, Dublin's oldest street market, now also home to a thriving cluster of ethnic food markets and restaurants.) NORTHSIDE CULTURAL ATTRACTIONS The North side of Parnell Square is home to the city's Hugh Lane Gallery of Modern Art; we share a significant collection of Impressionist painting with the Tate Gallery in London, part of the Hugh Lane Bequest, which is rotated in seven-year cycles. Next door is the Writer's Centre, and next door again, is the Writer's Museum, with a Michelin-starred restaurant in the basement, the amazing Chapter One. Down on the East side of Parnell Square is the beautiful jewel-box that is the Gate Theatre - part of the 18th-century entertainment complex established by the entrepreneurial Dr. Bartholomew, to help support his new Rotunda Maternity Hospital (the oldest purpose-built such hospital in the world, and still delivering babies on a daily basis, 270 years later (9000 is 2012). You could be seated in either the Abbey or Gate Theatres within 10 minutes of leaving the house, and the James Joyce Cultural Centre is even closer, on North Great Georges Street (don't forget to check out the Cobalt Cafe, opposite). Hop on the Luas Red Line, going west, in Abbey Street, halfway between Mountjoy Square and the river, and you will be dropped at the ‘Museum’. The National Museum, Collins Barracks, housed in an old military barracks, dating from 1702, contains the Decorative Arts Collections, (basically, everything post 1700). Descend at the next stop, ‘Heuston’ for IMMA, Ireland's National Museum of Modern Art, housed in the old Kilmainham Hospital, built in the1660’s. It pre-dates the more famous Chelsea Hospital in London by several years. Not to be missed is the Old Jameson Distillery, in Smithfield. Jameson was distilled here until 1971, when three historic distilleries amalgamated, and centralized distilling in Midleton, Co. Cork. The Museum is very well presented; one is guided around the distilling floor, among the huge old pot stills before retiring to the Bar to sample the goods. Nearby is one of the oldest churches in Dublin, St.Michan’s, on Church Street, dating from the mid-11thc. There are several mummified bodies in the basement, thought to be Crusaders. When I was a child, one was allowed to shake their hands….. SOUTHSIDE In the south city centre, the RESTAURANT HUB is in the pedestrian streets to either side of Grafton Street, and in Temple Bar. Particular favourites of mine include: * Nede, Temple Bar Square * Eden Bar and Grill, South William Street * The Green Hen, Wicklow Street * Fallon and Byrne, Exchequer Street, basement wine-bar, full service restaurant first- floor, and coffee bar within the food-hall on the ground floor. * Fade Street Social, Fade Street, tapas bar and full-service restaurant. * The Rustic Stone, Exchequer Street, upmarket, sophisticated and healthy ‘fast food’. * Cornucopia, Wicklow Street- vegetarian café day, full service by evening. * The Port House, South William Street, wine bar and tapas. * Pinxto, Crowe Street, Temple Bar, as above, same management. Southside city-centre TRADITIONAL PUBS we like are: * Mulligan's, Poolbeg Street * Neary's, Chatham Street * Grogan’s, South William Street * International Bar, Wicklow Street * O'Neill's, Suffolk Street * The Dawson Lounge, Dawson Street * The Stag's Head, Connaught Court * The Long Hall, South Great Georges Street * Doheny and Nesbitt’s, Merrion Row * Kehoe’s, South Anne Street * The Duke, Duke Street Fronting the river, TEMPLE BAR, with its vibrant mix of independent shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs, markets and cultural institutions occupies an area three blocks deep and ten blocks long. At the western end, look out for the two branches of the Queen of Tarts- a wonderful teas shop that offers really good home baking and teas and coffees, all served on mismatched antique china (Lord Edward Street and Cow's Lane). TEMPLE BAR FARMERS MARKET, is held every Saturday in Meeting House Square, 9-4.30, now has a smart new tensile roof for wet days, and is a good place to rub shoulders with the locals, whilst sampling local food culture. Don’t miss the Oyster Stall, Hick’s Pork Butchers, or David Llewyllan’s fantastic ‘Double L’ local cider- 100% apple (not even water), and the two local cheese stalls, among others. Don’t’ forget to check out the overflow stalls on Curved Street, where Rossa Crowe’s fantastic bread is on offer- Rossa took himself off to France for two years to train, and now produces slow fermented breads, made with the very best organic flours. TRINITY COLLEGE is a good orientation point; from here it is easy to find the mediaeval core, the cultural/political hub of the country around Kildare Street, and the Grafton Street fashion hub. The campus occupies a 40-acre (16ha.) site, and is over 400 years old, though what one sees today are mainly beautiful eighteenth-century buildings. It is worth a wander around, after a visit to spectacular Long Library, to see the Book of Kells and other illustrated Celtic manuscripts. From Front Gate, look south to Grafton Street or west up College Green and Dame Street, which lead to the mediaeval core. At the brow of the hill you will find: * Dublin Castle (visit the State Apartments, the Chester Beatty Library and the lovely garden in front (which is actually the helicopter-landing pad for the Castle). * The City Hall with its 'Museum of the Capital' in the basement is worth a look- the Hall is free, and there is a nominal charge for the Museum. * Christchurch Cathedral * Dublinia-in the Christchurch Chapterhouse (Viking Exhibition). * Old Saint Audeon's Church, built almost into the city wall. * St Patrick's Cathedral, and historic park beside. * Marshe's Library-the oldest public library in these islands, 1701. * Francis Street- the Antiques Quarter. * Thomas Street/Meath Street, for a touch of 'Old Dublin'. * The Guinness Storehouse. * Royal Hospital, Kilmainham, (IMMA) Ireland's National Gallery of Modern Art, with its wonderful, recently restored formal garden. KILMINHAM GAOL is worth a visit, and tells the story of Irish Nationalism. It can be reached via the grounds of IMMA, passing Bully’s Acre, and old graveyard, where Brian Boru was reputedly rested on his way to his final burial place in Armagh. Alternatively, exit onto Nassau Street, with its cluster of high-quality shops showcasing the best of Irish crafts - fashion, knitwear, weaving, glassware, ceramics and contemporary jewellery - the Kilkenny Shop has a great cafe upstairs, with views over College Park. Continue along the College Park railings till you reach Kildare Street, the cultural-institutional hub of the country. All of our national cultural institutions have free admission. Here you will find the National Library, and the National Museum, facing each other over the forecourt of Leinster House, home to the Oireachtas, our National Parliament. The National Library has a lovely exhibit on the poet, W.B. Yeats, and the Treasury, in the National Museum houses both the Bronze Age and Early Christian collections. On the opposite side of the block, on Merrion Street/Merrion Square, you will find the National Gallery, and the Natural History Museum (known to Dubliner's of my father's generation, as 'The Dead Zoo’. This is a very refreshing look to the past, with absolutely no interpretation, and nothing, not even a postcard, to buy). The National Gallery is halfway through a four-year renovation programme; in the meantime, the Millennium Wing, on Clare Street, has a ‘highlights of’ exhibition, and the Café and Gift Shop are also accessed via the Clare Street Entrance. GETTING AROUND Two operators offer Hop-On/Hop-Off tours: (URL HIDDEN) (URL HIDDEN) They both offer a 2-day ticket, and cost roughly the same price - check them out online before you make up your mind. One can buy an integrated LEAP card in most newsagents, at train stations, and in the Dublin Bus Head Office at 42 O’Connell Street (on the west side of the street, just north of the Spire). This can be used on the LUAS, DART, some suburban mainline trains, and on Dublin Bus routes. There is also a 3-day tourist pass, the Freedom Ticket, which provides good value. €28 will give you 72 hours transport, starting at the Airport; Airlink from the airport, the Hop-On-Hop –Off tourist bus and all local bus routes. Web: (URL HIDDEN) •The DART, the local electric commuter train, runs north/south along the coast. The northside city centre station is Connolly, on Amiens Street, facing Talbot Street, but I usually suggest people use Tara Street, as Connolly is also a mainline station, and is very big, and a bit confusing. Tara is purely a commuter station, and is about the same distance. It is on George’s Quay, just south of the Custom House. The other south-side city centre station is Pearse, on Westland Row, at the south end of the Trinity campus. •The LUAS Red Line runs east-west through the north side of the city, as far east as the docks, and serves both Connolly and Heuston mainline stations. The nearest stop to Mountjoy Square is Abbey, on Middle Abbey Street, opposite the Abbey Theatre. The LUAS Green Line serves the south suburbs; Ranelagh, Dundrum, Leopardstown Racecourse, and on out to Cherrywood, on the county boundary with Wicklow. •Main cross-city bus routes run north-south through O’Connell Street. The No.7 terminates on Mountjoy Square North, and there is a ‘shopper’s fare’ of 70c, to Grafton Street- alight at Trinity. On the return journey it skirts the Trinity campus and comes along Pearse, to the east of the campus - catch it on Clare Street, at the Millennium wing of the National Gallery. •DUBLIN BIKES are free to use for the first half hour, and have a stand on Mountjoy Square West, but one needs to go to the Princes Street stand (to the right hand side of the General Post Office (GPO)), to purchase a short term card. It costs €2, and is only available to credit card holders. SHOPPING WITH A DIFFERENCE Those interested in the local fashion, art and design scene should look out for the following addresses (in no particular order): •Designist, South Great George's Street (stock chosen for good design) •Irish Design Store, Drury Street •Article, Powerscourt Townhouse Centre (housewares) •Irish Designer Store, Top floor Powerscourt Townhouse Centre •Cow's Lane Gallery, Temple Bar (artist’s collective) •The Jam Factory, Nicholas Street (artist’s collective) •Avoca, Suffolk Street •Kilkenny Shop, Nassau Street •Designyard, South Frederick Street (jewellery) •Louise Kennedy, couturier, Merrion Square, and Tipperary Crystal •Gallery Zozimus, Francis Street (art gallery and carefully chosen crafts) •Graphic Studio Gallery, Temple Bar (artist-printmaker’s gallery) •Magee's of Donegal, Duke Street, and, •Kevin and Howlin, Nassau Street have hand-woven tweeds covered. •Dubarry's, College Green produce wonderful, country-style outerwear, including the most perfect alternative to sweaty, waterproof Wellington boots… •Monaghan's, Hibernian Way, the House of Ireland on Nassau Street and the Sweater Shops on Wicklow Street and Nassau Street has the best selections of traditional knitwear. Monaghan's specialise in cashmere. •The Cloth Shop, St. William Street, for interesting designer fabric, including a good selection of Irish Linen, and Liberty of London INDEPENDENT BOOKSHOPS and MUSIC STORES Eason’s, O’Connell Street, is a Dublin institution for over 100 years. It encompasses a large stationery department, a branch of Tower Records on the top floor, academic books in the basement, a nice café and two floors of general books. It is a good place to browse books of Irish interest, and they have a really good Information Desk. Chapters, Parnell Street West is my ‘local’. John Gannon is one of the best booksellers in the business, and his staff are hand-picked enthusiastic bibliophiles, one and all. Stock is a mixture of the latest releases, and carefully chosen remaindered books. Their ordering service is superlative, and they ALWAYS know exactly what one is talking about, even with just the vaguest, half-remembered clues from a newspaper review. Very strong on contemporary fiction, natural history, non-fiction and books of Irish interest. Extensive second-hand section upstairs. The Secret Bookstore, Wicklow Street is another favourite. It’s tucked away down a passage, near the L’Occitane shop and often throws up gems among its large second-hand stock. An eclectic music store occupies the rear of the shop. Cathach Rare Books, Duke Street, specializes in Irish first editions, and have an interesting selection of Irish maps and prints. Stokes Books is another interesting antiquarian/secondhand shop, specializing in books of Irish interest. You’ll find it in Georges Street Arcade. Claddagh Records, Cecelia Street, Temple Bar, is primarily a music publisher, but they have a retail outlet in Temple Bar, which is the oldest independent music shop in Dublin, and specializes in traditional Irish music, with some interesting World Music additions. PLACES OF WORSHIP: Roman Catholic: Many Catholic churches have Mass on Saturday evening, in addition to morning Masses. •St. Francis Xavier Roman Catholic Church, Upper Gardiner Street. Gospel Mass, 7.30pm Sundays, September to mid June. •St. Mary's Metropolitan Church - the Pro-Cathedral, Marlborough. Sung Mass, 11am, Sundays, with the Palestrina Choir. •St. Joseph’s Church, Berkeley Road, Dublin 7. •St. Teresa’s Church, Clarendon Street Church, choir sings at 11 o’clock Mass, Sunday’s •St. Peter’s Church, Phibsborough, Dublin 7, has wonderful Harry Clarke ((PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)) stained glass windows. •Whitefriars Street Church, Aungier Street, church has relics of St. Valentine.

SHORT TRIPS OUTSIDE THE CITY BY PUBLIC TRANSPORT NORTH: Catch the No.46A bus, (heading north on O'Connell Street to the Phoenix Park- the largest enclosed urban park in the world, 1750 acres behind a seven-mile-long stone wall. Ashtown Castle Interpretive Centre, with its wonderful walled garden and café is a good place to orient oneself. From here, on Saturdays, it is possible to visit Aras an Uachtarian, the official residence of our President. One can also visit Farmliegh, the Official State Guesthouse, a former Guinness mansion. Among it’s attractions are an art gallery, café, occasional free concerts, and regular weekend Farmer’s Markets. The Park also houses the Dublin Zoo, (1827, the second-oldest Zoo in the world, after London’s Regent Park Zoo). Several herd of Fallow Deer roam at liberty. Many sports are catered for; there is Polo ground, a cricket club, and lots soccer pitches. The Duke of Wellington is commemorated by a marvelous granite obelisk, which can be seen for miles. The area know as the Forty Acres affords superb views over the city, with the Royal Hospital and Guinness in the foreground, along the south side of the River Liffey. Phoenix Park can also be reached via the LUAS Red Line, direction Tallagh, heading west. Alight at 'Museum' and take a detour into the National Museum-Collins Barracks, which houses the Decorative Arts, post-1700, wonderful collections of silver, furniture, glass and other artifacts. Just up the road, in Glasnevin there are three worthwhile attractions: Glasnevin Cemetary, was founded by Daniel O’Connell as one of his first initiatives, post Catholic Emancipation in 1829, to provide a dignified place for Catholic burial. The Glasnevin Musuem is new, and has superlative displays of Nationalist history. They also have a very good Geneology Department. The National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin, date from the end of 18thC. Though relatively small, they contain an internationally-aclaimed collection of plants and three iconic Glasshouses, by Turner of Dublin, which have all been restored in the recent past. There is a nice café in the Gardens, and entry is free. The Gravedigger’s Pub, over-looking a Green, is not to be missed. It got its name from the fact that there used to be a hatch in the rear wall, through which the gravediggers were served. They do nice simple pub food, and one can sit outside on sunny days. Walk back into town, and stop at either the The Botanic Bar at Harte’s Corner or the Brian Borus, typicl local bars. The Porter House, at Cross Guns Bridge, which is a micro-brewery, with nice food, is on the corner of the Royal Canal. Take a stroll east down the canal bank, and you will see swans, and moor-hens going about their business. At the next bridge, at Dorset Street look out for the lifesize bronze statue of Brendan Behan, a local author. From here is just a few minute’s stroll up Belvidere Place, with its charming stepped terraces of tall Georgian houses, to Mountjoy Square. Another favorite is the Marino Casino, in Fairview/Clontarf, an early 18th century pleasure house, built to the design of Sir William Chambers, for Lord Charlemont, purely for entertaining, also just a few miles by bus, north of the city centre. Catch the DART, the coastal commuter train, heading north, at Tara Street Station, on the South Liffey quays, at Butt Bridge, and take a short ride. You have the choice of Howth (a working fishing village) or Malahide. Howth Demesne or Howth Head, behind the village will both afford walks with great views; the Harbour has a dozen restaurants along the quay- ranging from take-out fish and chips to the very upmarket. Book an early-evening window table at Aqua, and be astonished by the sunset over the coast, looking north-west. Another favourite of mine is Deep, midway along the quay (and do watch out for the local tame and greedy Harbour Seal, who begs shamelessly from the trawler men, who tie up alongside). Malahide is a charming village, with some of the most expensive urban residential properties in the country. Good food and good shopping are to be had here. On the edge of the village you will find Malahide Castle and Demesne, open to the public, which includes a renowned private Arboretum, as Milo de Malahide, the last of his family, (who had occupied the castle continuously since Norman times, in the 10th-12th centuries) was a significant plants-man. The Castle contains the National Portrait Collection, as was as magnificent furniture and other contents. There is a smart new branch of the AVOCA Shop and Café in the Courtyard. SOUTH: South of the city you will find Rathfarnham Castle, and its Berkeley Costume and Toy Collection. Marley Park is a little further, just at the foot of the Dublin Mountains. It has wonderful parkland with easy walks, and a magnificent walled garden with a nice cafe. The No.16 bus, from O’Connell Street will leave you close by. Powerscourt is at the edge of Enniskerry, its associated estate village, at the end of the No.44 bus route, which winds its way through the south side suburbs, into Wicklow, through the Scalp, a deep and picturesque glacial valley. The 19th century gardens are fabulous, and make great use of the 'borrowed landscape' beyond. The terrace and Nepture fountain are centred on the Sugarloaf mountain, which marks the beginning of the Wicklow Mountains. The Powerscourt Waterfall, part of the same estate, is a few miles further on, and there are beautiful, way-marked, woodland and moorland walks in the hills nearby. Do be mindful; these ‘mountains’ can be deceptive- while not high, they can be treacherous, as weather conditions can change in minutes. Stick to the way-marked paths, and do keep an eye on the weather. Take the DART south to Bray and Greystones - via Dun Loughaire, Dalkey and Killiney - all interesting villages, with many cafes and restaurants. Killiney Hill, with its eighteenth century obelisk at the summit, is a short climb that results in amazing views over Dublin Bay, and down into the Wicklow Mountains beyond. There is a nice pub in in the ‘village’- ‘The Druid’s Chair’. Dalkey is a charming village with old-fashioned shops and lots of nice pubs, cafes and restaurants. The local Dalkey Castle Heritage Centre, is worth checking out, and in the summer run a theatre programme, and walking tours. Bray Esplanade is a classic Victorian seaside amenity, sturdily built from local granite - the perfect place to enjoy an ice-cream. Campo di Fiori, either the Restaurant or the Café, both near the train station and the north end of the Promenade, are particular favourites of mine. If one is feeling energetic, one could contemplate the Cliff Walk from Bray to Greystones - 4miles/6km along the rough cliff path. Lots of nice pubs for a pint of Guinness at the other end, The Hungry Pear is my favourite café, among many. The DART will take you straight back into the city. But.. make sure to do it in the morning, as by mid-day the path is in shade, and it can be windy and cold. WEST: Travelling into the rich plains of Kildare, by the No. 67 bus route, you will come to the historic village of Celbridge, just twelve miles from the city centre. Castletown House is Ireland's finest Palladian mansion, and was saved from destruction by Desmond Guinness, in the early 1960's. He purchased it from the construction company who had acquired it. They intended to demolish it, to make way for a vast suburban housing estate. The Irish Georgian Society, founded by Desmond Guinness, restored the house and furnished it with the help of many volunteers and sponsors, and opened it to the public, a heroic task for a small membership conservation society. Today, it is in State ownership, and it is the flagship Georgian heritage property of Ireland. It is beautifully presented, and the parklands are undergoing restoration. A local bus, or the commuter train from Connolly Station in Amiens Street, will take one to Maynooth, a charming University town, with another magnificent Palladian mansion, Carton House, now operating as a very upmarket hotel and golf club. Lots of companies offer day-long coach tours. Some involve very long days, i.e, Cliffs of Moher in Clare and the Giant’s Causeway on the Antrim coast. Two more local, and very worthwhile ones are either: The Boyne Valley Tour (Newgrange Neolithic ( 5000 yr old World Heritage Site) / Mellifont Cistercian ruins- (12thC.)/ Monasterboice Early Christian (6th-8thC.) The Wicklow-Glendalough Tour (Powerscourt / Wicklow Mountains National Park and Glendalough (Glen of the Two Lakes) a 6thC. Early Christian site, in beautiful wooded valley. Details of both of these trips, and others, are available in the big black folder in the apartment.
A beautiful, historic, residential square, built in 1790's, within 5-10 minutes walk of the city centre. Elegance and convenience combined with a bit of inner city grittiness. I have loved it all, since 1978!
  • Super hôte et emplacement fantastique aimerait certainement rester à nouveau

  • Facile à suivre les directions pour se rendre à l'appartement et y entrer. Réponses très rapides. L'appartement en lui-même était dans un emplacement parfait à distance de marche de tout. Exactement ce dont nous avions besoin!

  • Cet appartement est un endroit parfait où séjourner pour explorer Dublin. Une cuisine bien garnie permet de profiter facilement d'une nuit et l'hôte a fourni des informations utiles sur la région à notre arrivée. Hautement recommandé!

  • Je ne plaisante pas du tout quand je dis que c'est exactement ce que je choisirais si je pouvais avoir un appartement :) c'est tellement adorable, avec une touche d'histoire, la salle ronde est vraiment unique et c'est très confortable. L'emplacement était fantastique, vous êtes à deux pas des transports en commun et à environ 20 minutes à pied de tout ce que vous voudrez voir en ville. Ma seule critique est que la douche est très petite, alors sachez si vous êtes une grande personne! C'est agréable d'avoir accès à une cuisine entièrement équipée, et Karin et Jackie étaient très désireux de vous aider de quelque manière que ce soit pendant mon séjour. Je le recommande vivement!

    Sarah2019-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • Une pièce vraiment intéressante dans un bon emplacement. J'ai pas mal marché partout à partir de là. Karin est très sensible aux questions et a fourni un excellent guide pour la salle et les choses à voir et à faire.

  • Un bijou absolu à Dublin! Superbe maison géorgienne transformée en appartements. Karin a ajouté quelques touches merveilleuses et j'ai adoré rester ici. L'appartement avait tout ce dont j'avais besoin et plus encore. L'emplacement est une promenade facile à la zone commerçante de Dublin et de bons endroits pour manger. Je recommande vivement de séjourner ici, une excellente trouvaille!

    Gina2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Hou la la! C'était le plus beau et accueillant AirBnB où nous avons séjourné! C'est tout d'abord un espace très charmant, un appartement ovale décoré avec goût. Et une cheminée en fonctionnement devant un canapé délicieusement confortable était l'endroit idéal pour passer une nuit d'été fraîche. Karin a tous les appareils haut de gamme et elle garde ses unités dans un état impeccable. Elle range le réfrigérateur avec des articles pour le petit-déjeuner, ce qui était une touche très accueillante. Le lit et les oreillers permettaient de passer une nuit merveilleuse. Nous avons également apprécié nos conversations avec Karin. C'est un endroit exceptionnel pour rester.

Airport bus (41) passes door, 8 min. walk to LUAS Red line, DART, (Connolly and Tara) and city busses. Dublin Bikes stand opposite house. KARIN'S GUIDE TO THE CITY LOCAL GROCERY SHOPPING, SERVICES AND BREAKFAST OPTIONS In general, shopping hours are 9.30-6pm, with late-night shopping till 8pm on Thursdays. Sunday opening is from noon. BREAKFAST The Old Music Store, on North Frederick Street is comfortable and offers a good cooked breakfast. The no-frills Kingfisher Café, on the corner of Parnell Square and Parnell Street West offers a good freshly cooked Irish breakfast and very good fish and chips later in the day. LOCAL GROCERY SHOPPING Tops in Pops, just down the street to the right, for fresh local produce and basic groceries, 8.30am to 6pm Monday to Saturday. They are a fourth-generation local business, who have been trading on the site since 1931. The Londis corner store next door opens 8am to 10pm, but charge for privilege. There is an ATM machine at the back, right hand side of the store. Dunne's Stores, is the indigenous supermarket and department store chain, and has branches in every sizeable town throughout the country. There are two local branches. In North Earl Street, opposite O’Connell Street’s Spire, the Off-Licence (liquor store) is in a separate premises, a few doors apart - look for the James Joyce statue. You will find a bigger branch in the ILAC Shopping Centre, flanked by Henry Street, Moore Street and Parnell Street West (Moore Street entrance is opposite Paris Bakery). There is Metro Tesco on Parnell Street West, just past the Rotunda Hospital. A main branch is to be found in the basement of the Jervis Centre, off Henry Street. Carney’s Butchers, is another multi-generational local family business, which prides itself on the quality of its meat. In keeping with local tradition, they sell fresh fish on Friday’s. F.X. Buckley’s Butchers have two local branches; Moore Street and Talbot Street. This is a very old Dublin business and they have everything; free-range pork, beef and lamb from their own herds, poultry, game in season and fish, and, in the Moore Street branch, a deli counter for cooked meats next door. They are very obliging, and the lads have a great line in smart (sassy) chat. PHARMACIES Foley's Pharmacy on Parnell Street East is a 100+ year-old family business; they are very helpful. Opening hours: Monday-Saturday 9am 6pm. There is a late-night pharmacy, Hickey’s at 55 Lower O’Connell Street, (west side, within the block closest to the river). Opening hours: 8am -10pm M-F, 8.30am-10pm Saturday. 10am 10pm Sunday. Web: (email hidden) POST OFFICES Nearest Post Office is Parnell Street East, at corner of Marlborough Street, but much nicer is the GPO, O’Connell Street. 1828 façade, but badly damaged in the 1916 Rising, and largely rebuilt in 1928. The main hall is beautiful, with its entire original, 1928, fittings intact. It also contains the iconic statue, by Oliver Shepherd, The Dying Cuchullin. You will find a booklet with postal rates in the black folder. BANKS Allied Irish Bank has a branch on O’Connell Street, at the SW junction with Parnell Street, opposite the Rotunda Hospital. ATM in the wall. Bank of Ireland has a branch at Lower O’Connell Street, on the east side of the street, between Middle Abbey Street and Ashton Quay.

Call for (website hidden)(phone number hidden). NORTHSIDE LOCAL RESTAURANTS: 'The Cobalt Cafe', in a beautiful Georgian house on North Great Georges Street, which doubles as a gallery, is great for lunch. Parnell Street, Dublin's emerging 'Chinatown' is just a half a block to the south. Newly opened, on Parnell Square West is 'Mr.Fox', serving modern Irish food in a smart and comfortable setting. Nearer the river, 'Le Bon Crubeen' (crubeen=pig's trotter- it's a modern Franco-Irish restaurant) is on Talbot Street, as is the venerable and immensely popular 'Talbot 101'. It is packed to the gunnels with locals between 5.54 and 7.15, enjoying their pre-theatre supper before the Abbey curtains rise at 7.30, when they relinquish their seats for the rest of us! On the riverfront, I love Panem, facing the Millennium Bridge, for a quick coffee and a delicious Sicilian almond biscuit, baked on the premises. A few doors down, you'll find a cluster of Italian bars, cafes and restaurants serving good quality food. Half a block to the east is the trendy 'Winding Stairs' restaurant, with its book-lined walls (relics of a former second-hand bookshop-cum-cafe of the same name), and it's sister restaurant, The Woollen Mills, while back on Capel Street, locals rave about Brother Hubbard for lunch. LOCAL PUBS include the 'Hill 16' just opposite the house, on Gardiner Street - very popular with the GAA crowd on match days (the Gaelic Athletic Association Stadium, Croke Park, is just 3 blocks to the east), they pull a superb 'pint'. ‘The Heritage Parnell’, on Parnell Street West, just around the corner from O’Connell Street 'The Flowing Tide', on the corner of Marlborough Street, opposite the Abbey Theatre, is one of my favorites - after the curtain goes down in the Abbey, half the cast are likely to be at the bar. A few doors closer to O’Connell Street is Mulligan’s, another very nice pub, dating from the Edwardian era. 'The Church' on Mary Street, in a converted 1720's church, is another fine place for a drink; the former owner won many accolades for the high quality of the restoration. Capel Street has many typical local pubs, which have the added benefit of serving a largely local population. They include 'O’Neill’s' and 'Slattery's which is good for music. 'The Black Sheep' has the local craft beers covered, and does good bar food, (as does its sister pub, ‘The Brew Dock’, on Store Street, at the bottom of Gardiner Street. The north side traditional music 'musician’s' bar is 'The Cobblestone', at the top of Smithfield, and is suitably grungy. DEPARTMENT STORES AND FASHION Henry Street, off O’Connell Street, at the SPIRE, is the premier shopping street on the north side of the river. Here you will find Arnott’s the local department store, which highlights Irish fashion and design, throughout the store, and has several nice cafes. Henry Street also contains large branches of Debenhams and Marks&Spencers, as well as branches of most of the high street fashion chains. There are two large shopping centres, the Jervis, with a large branch of Tesco’s in the Basement, and the ILAC, which has a Dunnes Department Store, with a Food Hall in the basement. (You can shop for fresh produce on adjacent Moore Street, Dublin's oldest street market, now also home to a thriving cluster of ethnic food markets and restaurants.) NORTHSIDE CULTURAL ATTRACTIONS The North side of Parnell Square is home to the city's Hugh Lane Gallery of Modern Art; we share a significant collection of Impressionist painting with the Tate Gallery in London, part of the Hugh Lane Bequest, which is rotated in seven-year cycles. Next door is the Writer's Centre, and next door again, is the Writer's Museum, with a Michelin-starred restaurant in the basement, the amazing Chapter One. Down on the East side of Parnell Square is the beautiful jewel-box that is the Gate Theatre - part of the 18th-century entertainment complex established by the entrepreneurial Dr. Bartholomew, to help support his new Rotunda Maternity Hospital (the oldest purpose-built such hospital in the world, and still delivering babies on a daily basis, 270 years later (9000 is 2012). You could be seated in either the Abbey or Gate Theatres within 10 minutes of leaving the house, and the James Joyce Cultural Centre is even closer, on North Great Georges Street (don't forget to check out the Cobalt Cafe, opposite). Hop on the Luas Red Line, going west, in Abbey Street, halfway between Mountjoy Square and the river, and you will be dropped at the ‘Museum’. The National Museum, Collins Barracks, housed in an old military barracks, dating from 1702, contains the Decorative Arts Collections, (basically, everything post 1700). Descend at the next stop, ‘Heuston’ for IMMA, Ireland's National Museum of Modern Art, housed in the old Kilmainham Hospital, built in the1660’s. It pre-dates the more famous Chelsea Hospital in London by several years. Not to be missed is the Old Jameson Distillery, in Smithfield. Jameson was distilled here until 1971, when three historic distilleries amalgamated, and centralized distilling in Midleton, Co. Cork. The Museum is very well presented; one is guided around the distilling floor, among the huge old pot stills before retiring to the Bar to sample the goods. Nearby is one of the oldest churches in Dublin, St.Michan’s, on Church Street, dating from the mid-11thc. There are several mummified bodies in the basement, thought to be Crusaders. When I was a child, one was allowed to shake their hands….. SOUTHSIDE In the south city centre, the RESTAURANT HUB is in the pedestrian streets to either side of Grafton Street, and in Temple Bar. Particular favourites of mine include: * Nede, Temple Bar Square * Eden Bar and Grill, South William Street * The Green Hen, Wicklow Street * Fallon and Byrne, Exchequer Street, basement wine-bar, full service restaurant first- floor, and coffee bar within the food-hall on the ground floor. * Fade Street Social, Fade Street, tapas bar and full-service restaurant. * The Rustic Stone, Exchequer Street, upmarket, sophisticated and healthy ‘fast food’. * Cornucopia, Wicklow Street- vegetarian café day, full service by evening. * The Port House, South William Street, wine bar and tapas. * Pinxto, Crowe Street, Temple Bar, as above, same management. Southside city-centre TRADITIONAL PUBS we like are: * Mulligan's, Poolbeg Street * Neary's, Chatham Street * Grogan’s, South William Street * International Bar, Wicklow Street * O'Neill's, Suffolk Street * The Dawson Lounge, Dawson Street * The Stag's Head, Connaught Court * The Long Hall, South Great Georges Street * Doheny and Nesbitt’s, Merrion Row * Kehoe’s, South Anne Street * The Duke, Duke Street Fronting the river, TEMPLE BAR, with its vibrant mix of independent shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs, markets and cultural institutions occupies an area three blocks deep and ten blocks long. At the western end, look out for the two branches of the Queen of Tarts- a wonderful teas shop that offers really good home baking and teas and coffees, all served on mismatched antique china (Lord Edward Street and Cow's Lane). TEMPLE BAR FARMERS MARKET, is held every Saturday in Meeting House Square, 9-4.30, now has a smart new tensile roof for wet days, and is a good place to rub shoulders with the locals, whilst sampling local food culture. Don’t miss the Oyster Stall, Hick’s Pork Butchers, or David Llewyllan’s fantastic ‘Double L’ local cider- 100% apple (not even water), and the two local cheese stalls, among others. Don’t’ forget to check out the overflow stalls on Curved Street, where Rossa Crowe’s fantastic bread is on offer- Rossa took himself off to France for two years to train, and now produces slow fermented breads, made with the very best organic flours. NORTHSIDE CULTURAL ATTACTIONS TRINITY COLLEGE is a good orientation point; from here it is easy to find the mediaeval core, the cultural/political hub of the country around Kildare Street, and the Grafton Street fashion hub. The campus occupies a 40-acre (16ha.) site, and is over 400 years old, though what one sees today are mainly beautiful eighteenth-century buildings. It is worth a wander around, after a visit to spectacular Long Library, to see the Book of Kells and other illustrated Celtic manuscripts. From Front Gate, look south to Grafton Street or west up College Green and Dame Street, which lead to the mediaeval core. At the brow of the hill you will find: * Dublin Castle (visit the State Apartments, the Chester Beatty Library and the lovely garden in front (which is actually the helicopter-landing pad for the Castle). * The City Hall with its 'Museum of the Capital' in the basement is worth a look- the Hall is free, and there is a nominal charge for the Museum. * Christchurch Cathedral * Dublinia-in the Christchurch Chapterhouse (Viking Exhibition). * Old Saint Audeon's Church, built almost into the city wall. * St Patrick's Cathedral, and historic park beside. * Marshe's Library-the oldest public library in these islands, 1701. * Francis Street- the Antiques Quarter. * Thomas Street/Meath Street, for a touch of 'Old Dublin'. * The Guinness Storehouse. * Royal Hospital, Kilmainham, (IMMA) Ireland's National Gallery of Modern Art, with its wonderful, recently restored formal garden. KILMINHAM GAOL is worth a visit, and tells the story of Irish Nationalism. It can be reached via the grounds of IMMA, passing Bully’s Acre, and old graveyard, where Brian Boru was reputedly rested on his way to his final burial place in Armagh. Alternatively, exit onto Nassau Street, with its cluster of high-quality shops showcasing the best of Irish crafts - fashion, knitwear, weaving, glassware, ceramics and contemporary jewellery - the Kilkenny Shop has a great cafe upstairs, with views over College Park. Continue along the College Park railings till you reach Kildare Street, the cultural-institutional hub of the country. All of our national cultural institutions have free admission. Here you will find the National Library, and the National Museum, facing each other over the forecourt of Leinster House, home to the Oireachtas, our National Parliament. The National Library has a lovely exhibit on the poet, W.B. Yeats, and the Treasury, in the National Museum houses both the Bronze Age and Early Christian collections. On the opposite side of the block, on Merrion Street/Merrion Square, you will find the National Gallery, and the Natural History Museum (known to Dubliner's of my father's generation, as 'The Dead Zoo’. This is a very refreshing look to the past, with absolutely no interpretation, and nothing, not even a postcard, to buy). The National Gallery is halfway through a four-year renovation programme; in the meantime, the Millennium Wing, on Clare Street, has a ‘highlights of’ exhibition, and the Café and Gift Shop are also accessed via the Clare Street Entrance. GETTING AROUND Two operators offer Hop-On/Hop-Off tours: (website hidden) (website hidden) They both offer a 2-day ticket, and cost roughly the same price - check them out online before you make up your mind. One can buy an integrated LEAP card in most newsagents, at train stations, and in the Dublin Bus Head Office at 42 O’Connell Street (on the west side of the street, just north of the Spire). This can be used on the LUAS, DART, some suburban mainline trains, and on Dublin Bus routes. There is also a 3-day tourist pass, the Freedom Ticket, which provides good value. €28 will give you 72 hours transport, starting at the Airport; Airlink from the airport, the Hop-On-Hop –Off tourist bus and all local bus routes. Web: (website hidden) •The DART, the local electric commuter train, runs north/south along the coast. The northside city centre station is Connolly, on Amiens Street, facing Talbot Street, but I usually suggest people use Tara Street, as Connolly is also a mainline station, and is very big, and a bit confusing. Tara is purely a commuter station, and is about the same distance. It is on George’s Quay, just south of the Custom House. The other south-side city centre station is Pearse, on Westland Row, at the south end of the Trinity campus. •The LUAS Red Line runs east-west through the north side of the city, as far east as the docks, and serves both Connolly and Heuston mainline stations. The nearest stop to Mountjoy Square is Abbey, on Middle Abbey Street, opposite the Abbey Theatre. The LUAS Green Line serves the south suburbs; Ranelagh, Dundrum, Leopardstown Racecourse, and on out to Cherrywood, on the county boundary with Wicklow. •Main cross-city bus routes run north-south through O’Connell Street. The No.7 terminates on Mountjoy Square North, and there is a ‘shopper’s fare’ of 70c, to Grafton Street- alight at Trinity. On the return journey it skirts the Trinity campus and comes along Pearse, to the east of the campus - catch it on Clare Street, at the Millennium wing of the National Gallery. •DUBLIN BIKES are free to use for the first half hour, and have a stand on Mountjoy Square West, but one needs to go to the Princes Street stand (to the right hand side of the General Post Office (GPO)), to purchase a short term card. It costs €2, and is only available to credit card holders. SHOPPING WITH A DIFFERENCE Those interested in the local fashion, art and design scene should look out for the following addresses (in no particular order): •Designist, South Great George's Street (stock chosen for good design) •Irish Design Store, Drury Street •Article, Powerscourt Townhouse Centre (housewares) •Irish Designer Store, Top floor Powerscourt Townhouse Centre •Cow's Lane Gallery, Temple Bar (artist’s collective) •The Jam Factory, Nicholas Street (artist’s collective) •Avoca, Suffolk Street •Kilkenny Shop, Nassau Street •Designyard, South Frederick Street (jewellery) •Louise Kennedy, couturier, Merrion Square, and Tipperary Crystal •Gallery Zozimus, Francis Street (art gallery and carefully chosen crafts) •Graphic Studio Gallery, Temple Bar (artist-printmaker’s gallery) •Malthouse Design Centre and Shop, Distillery Court, 537 North Circular Road, just around the corner from Mountjoy Square (cluster of design-led businesses, 10-5 M-F) •Magee's of Donegal, Wicklow Street, and, •Kevin and Howlin, Nassau Street have hand-woven tweeds covered. •Dubarry's, College Green produce wonderful, country-style outerwear, including the most perfect alternative to sweaty, waterproof Wellington boots… •Monaghan's, Hibernian Way, the House of Ireland on Nassau Street and the Sweater Shops on Wicklow Street and Nassau Street has the best selections of traditional knitwear. Monaghan's specialise in cashmere. •Murphy and Sheehy, Castle Market, stock Irish tweed, Irish linen and a quirky selection of designer fabrics. Look out for their ‘Linen Union (linen/cotton blend) Glass Cloths- the best ever for polishing glassware, they make a super, useful, inexpensive and lightweight traditional gift! •The Cloth Shop, St. William Street, for interesting designer fabric, including a good selection of Irish Linen, and Liberty of London INDEPENDENT BOOKSHOPS and MUSIC STORES Eason’s, O’Connell Street, is a Dublin institution for over 100 years. It encompasses a large stationery department, a branch of Tower Records on the top floor, academic books in the basement, a nice café and two floors of general books. It is a good place to browse books of Irish interest, and they have a really good Information Desk. Chapters, Parnell Street West is my ‘local’. John Gannon is one of the best booksellers in the business, and his staff are hand-picked enthusiastic bibliophiles, one and all. Stock is a mixture of the latest releases, and carefully chosen remaindered books. Their ordering service is superlative, and they ALWAYS know exactly what one is talking about, even with just the vaguest, half-remembered clues from a newspaper review. Very strong on contemporary fiction, natural history, non-fiction and books of Irish interest. Extensive second-hand section upstairs. The Secret Bookstore, Wicklow Street is another favourite. It’s tucked away down a passage, near the L’Occitane shop and often throws up gems among its large second-hand stock. An eclectic music store occupies the rear of the shop. Cathach Rare Books, Duke Street, specializes in Irish first editions, and have an interesting selection of Irish maps and prints. Stokes Books is another interesting antiquarian/secondhand shop, specializing in books of Irish interest. You’ll find it in Georges Street Arcade. Claddagh Records, Cecelia Street, Temple Bar, is primarily a music publisher, but they have a retail outlet in Temple Bar, which is the oldest independent music shop in Dublin, and specializes in traditional Irish music, with some interesting World Music additions. The Celtic Note, on Nassau Street, beside the Kilkenny Shop is another good bet. PLACES OF WORSHIP: Roman Catholic: Many Catholic churches have Mass on Saturday evening, in addition to morning Masses. •St. Francis Xavier Roman Catholic Church, Upper Gardiner Street. Gospel Mass, 7.30pm Sundays, September to mid June. •St. Mary's Metropolitan Church - the Pro-Cathedral, Marlborough. Sung Mass, 11am, Sundays, with the Palestrina Choir. •St. Joseph’s Church, Berkeley Road, Dublin 7. •St. Teresa’s Church, Clarendon Street Church, choir sings at 11 o’clock Mass, Sunday’s •St. Peter’s Church, Phibsborough, Dublin 7, has wonderful Harry Clarke (phone number hidden)) stained glass windows. •Whitefriars Street Church, Aungier Street, church has relics of St. Valentine. Church of Ireland: •Christchurch Cathedral, Christchurch Place, sung Services Sundays, •St. Patrick's Cathedral, Nicholas Street, sung Services Sundays. •St. Anne’s Church, Dawson Street, Dublin 2 Jewish: Dublin Hebrew Congregation (website hidden) Daily services in Synagogue at 32a Rathfarnham Road, Public Transport: Buses: (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN). Get off at Terenure Cross (road). Walk up Rathfarnham Road, pass AIB Bank and one row of terraced houses; shul is next building, with wooden/metal security gates.

SHORT TRIPS OUTSIDE THE CITY BY PUBLIC TRANSPORT NORTH: Catch the No.46A bus, (heading north on O'Connell Street to the Phoenix Park- the largest enclosed urban park in the world, 1750 acres behind a seven-mile-long stone wall. Ashtown Castle Interpretive Centre, with its wonderful walled garden and café is a good place to orient oneself. From here, on Saturdays, it is possible to visit Aras an Uachtarian, the official residence of our President. One can also visit Farmliegh, the Official State Guesthouse, a former Guinness mansion. Among it’s attractions are an art gallery, café, occasional free concerts, and regular weekend Farmer’s Markets. The Park also houses the Dublin Zoo, (1827, the second-oldest Zoo in the world, after London’s Regent Park Zoo). Several herd of Fallow Deer roam at liberty. Many sports are catered for; there is Polo ground, a cricket club, and lots soccer pitches. The Duke of Wellington is commemorated by a marvelous granite obelisk, which can be seen for miles. The area know as the Forty Acres affords superb views over the city, with the Royal Hospital and Guinness in the foreground, along the south side of the River Liffey. Phoenix Park can also be reached via the LUAS Red Line, direction Tallagh, heading west. Alight at 'Museum' and take a detour into the National Museum-Collins Barracks, which houses the Decorative Arts, post-1700, wonderful collections of silver, furniture, glass and other artifacts. Just up the road, in Glasnevin there are three worthwhile attractions: Glasnevin Cemetary, was founded by Daniel O’Connell as one of his first initiatives, post Catholic Emancipation in 1829, to provide a dignified place for Catholic burial. The Glasnevin Musuem is new, and has superlative displays of Nationalist history. They also have a very good Geneology Department. The National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin, date from the end of 18thC. Though relatively small, they contain an internationally-aclaimed collection of plants and three iconic Glasshouses, by Turner of Dublin, which have all been restored in the recent past. There is a nice café in the Gardens, and entry is free. The Gravedigger’s Pub, over-looking a Green, is not to be missed. It got its name from the fact that there used to be a hatch in the rear wall, through which the gravediggers were served. They do nice simple pub food, and one can sit outside on sunny days. Walk back into town, and stop at either the The Botanic Bar at Harte’s Corner or the Brian Borus, typicl local bars. The Porter House, at Cross Guns Bridge, which is a micro-brewery, with nice food, is on the corner of the Royal Canal. Take a stroll east down the canal bank, and you will see swans, and moor-hens going about their business. At the next bridge, at Dorset Street look out for the lifesize bronze statue of Brendan Behan, a local author. From here is just a few minute’s stroll up Belvidere Place, with its charming stepped terraces of tall Georgian houses, to Mountjoy Square. Another favorite is the Marino Casino, in Fairview/Clontarf, an early 18th century pleasure house, built to the design of Sir William Chambers, for Lord Charlemont, purely for entertaining, also just a few miles by bus, north of the city centre. Catch the DART, the coastal commuter train, heading north, at Tara Street Station, on the South Liffey quays, at Butt Bridge, and take a short ride. You have the choice of Howth (a working fishing village) or Malahide. Howth Demesne or Howth Head, behind the village will both afford walks with great views; the Harbour has a dozen restaurants along the quay- ranging from take-out fish and chips to the very upmarket. Book an early-evening window table at Aqua, and be astonished by the sunset over the coast, looking north-west. Another favourite of mine is Deep, midway along the quay (and do watch out for the local tame and greedy Harbour Seal, who begs shamelessly from the trawler men, who tie up alongside). Malahide is a charming village, with some of the most expensive urban residential properties in the country. Good food and good shopping are to be had here. On the edge of the village you will find Malahide Castle and Demesne, open to the public, which includes a renowned private Arboretum, as Milo de Malahide, the last of his family, (who had occupied the castle continuously since Norman times, in the 10th-12th centuries) was a significant plants-man. The Castle contains the National Portrait Collection, as was as magnificent furniture and other contents. There is a smart new branch of the AVOCA Shop and Café in the Courtyard. SOUTH: South of the city you will find Rathfarnham Castle, and its Berkeley Costume and Toy Collection. Marley Park is a little further, just at the foot of the Dublin Mountains. It has wonderful parkland with easy walks, and a magnificent walled garden with a nice cafe. The No.16 bus, from O’Connell Street will leave you close by. Powerscourt is at the edge of Enniskerry, its associated estate village, at the end of the No.44 bus route, which winds its way through the south side suburbs, into Wicklow, through the Scalp, a deep and picturesque glacial valley. The 19th century gardens are fabulous, and make great use of the 'borrowed landscape' beyond. The terrace and Nepture fountain are centred on the Sugarloaf mountain, which marks the beginning of the Wicklow Mountains. The Powerscourt Waterfall, part of the same estate, is a few miles further on, and there are beautiful, way-marked, woodland and moorland walks in the hills nearby. Do be mindful; these ‘mountains’ can be deceptive- while not high, they can be treacherous, as weather conditions can change in minutes. Stick to the way-marked paths, and do keep an eye on the weather. Take the DART south to Bray and Greystones - via Dun Loughaire, Dalkey and Killiney - all interesting villages, with many cafes and restaurants. Killiney Hill, with its eighteenth century obelisk at the summit, is a short climb that results in amazing views over Dublin Bay, and down into the Wicklow Mountains beyond. There is a nice pub in in the ‘village’- ‘The Druid’s Chair’. Dalkey is a charming village with old-fashioned shops and lots of nice pubs, cafes and restaurants. The local Dalkey Castle Heritage Centre, is worth checking out, and in the summer run a theatre programme, and walking tours. Bray Esplanade is a classic Victorian seaside amenity, sturdily built from local granite - the perfect place to enjoy an ice-cream. Campo di Fiori, either the Restaurant or the Café, both near the train station and the north end of the Promenade, are particular favourites of mine. If one is feeling energetic, one could contemplate the Cliff Walk from Bray to Greystones - 4miles/6km along the rough cliff path. Lots of nice pubs for a pint of Guinness at the other end, The Hungry Pear is my favourite café, among many. The DART will take you straight back into the city. But.. make sure to do it in the morning, as by mid-day the path is in shade, and it can be windy and cold. WEST: Travelling into the rich plains of Kildare, by the No. 67 bus route, you will come to the historic village of Celbridge, just twelve miles from the city centre. Castletown House is Ireland's finest Palladian mansion, and was saved from destruction by Desmond Guinness, in the early 1960's. He purchased it from the construction company who had acquired it. They intended to demolish it, to make way for a vast suburban housing estate. The Irish Georgian Society, founded by Desmond Guinness, restored the house and furnished it with the help of many volunteers and sponsors, and opened it to the public, a heroic task for a small membership conservation society. Today, it is in State ownership, and it is the flagship Georgian heritage property of Ireland. It is beautifully presented, and the parklands are undergoing restoration. A local bus, or the commuter train from Connolly Station in Amiens Street, will take one to Maynooth, a charming University town, with another magnificent Palladian mansion, Carton House, now operating as a very upmarket hotel and golf club. Lots of companies offer day-long coach tours. Some involve very long days, i.e, Cliffs of Moher in Clare and the Giant’s Causeway on the Antrim coast. Two more local, and very worthwhile ones are either: The Boyne Valley Tour (Newgrange Neolithic ( 5000 yr old World Heritage Site) / Mellifont Cistercian ruins- (12thC.)/ Monasterboice Early Christian (6th-8thC.) The Wicklow-Glendalough Tour (Powerscourt / Wicklow Mountains National Park and Glendalough (Glen of the Two Lakes) a 6thC. Early Christian site, in beautiful wooded valley. Details of both of these trips, and others, are available in the big black folder in the apartment.
    A beautiful, historic residential square, built in 1790's, within 5-10 minutes walk of down-town city centre. Elegance and convenience combined with a bit of inner city grittiness. I have loved it all, since 1978! Mountjoy Square is situated just NE of the historic city centre, within walking distance of just about all the main city attractions. It is the most densely populated area in the entire city: 1500 people have front doors opening onto the Square. The house fronts onto a 4acre/1.5ha park, across a fairly busy street. This apartment faces the side street, so it is quieter, but you will still hear traffic.....Please bear in mind that this is NOT LEAFY SUBURBIA, but a vibrant, living city community and it's definitely gritty in places... Having said that, I have lived here, uneventfully, for nearly 38 years, and consider the trade-offs well worth it, for the excitement and convenience of having the city on my doorstep..
  • J'ai passé un séjour agréable et confortable ici! Cet emplacement est également une promenade facile au cœur de Dublin! Il y a plusieurs pubs à distance de marche également pour boire en toute sécurité la nuit. J'adorerais revenir et rester ici encore. Karin fournit un guide complet de la ville et il m'a été très facile de naviguer et de comprendre ce que je voulais faire. Je vous suggère d'apporter vos propres serviettes si vous préférez des serviettes en coton. Karin fournit gentiment les serviettes mais elles peuvent être un peu rugueuses pour certains. J'ai choisi cet Airbnb principalement parce qu'il a une cuisine et c'était une si bonne idée! J'ai emballé des conserves et du pain et j'étais prêt pour les repas, ce qui était particulièrement utile en sortant de l'avion. Karin fournit des œufs et des condiments ainsi que du thé, ce qui était très attentionné et m'a beaucoup aidé! N'oubliez pas de fermer les rideaux boisés de la grande fenêtre, car cela permet de garder l'appartement au chaud la nuit et de ne pas gaspiller de gaz.

  • Les appartements ovales de Karin sont encore plus magnifiques que sur la photo. Plus que cela, Karin est l'hôte consommée. Elle vous laissera de la nourriture dans le réfrigérateur, des recommandations pour les endroits où manger et les choses à faire, et elle vérifiera pour s'assurer que vous avez tout ce dont vous avez besoin. Nous serions ravis de revenir avec elle lors d'un prochain voyage à Dublin!

    Francesca2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • Les chambres géorgiennes sont une trouvaille très spéciale dans le joyau de la place Mountjoy. À moins de dix minutes à pied de O'Connell Street, joliment décoré et, à Karin, un hôte charmant. Nous avons certainement l'intention de revenir dès que possible.

    Livvy2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Tout est parfait!

    Christin2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Cherchez pas plus loin!!! L'appartement de Karin a tout ce que vous pourriez souhaiter et PLUS! En entrant, vous avez l'impression d'être rentré chez vous après un long voyage. Accueillant, charmant et absolument délicieux, il était honnêtement difficile de partir explorer la ville car tout ce que je voulais faire était de rester ici et de me détendre devant le feu. Karin avait des œufs, du beurre, du jus de mangue, des confitures, des fruits frais, du thé et du café, tous en attente dans la cuisine pour le petit déjeuner et un panier plein de bois pour faire du feu. L'emplacement était parfait. C'était toujours dans le centre-ville, mais était sur un pâté de maisons calme loin du bruit. Je n'ai jamais pris de taxi et j'ai profité de l'emplacement fantastique de l'appartement, en parcourant Dublin 1 et 2. Karin avait également une longue liste de recommandations et de suggestions en termes de restaurants locaux, d'épiceries et d'intérêts à proximité, ce qui m'a été très utile. Je ne recommanderais plus cet appartement et j'ai hâte de le louer à nouveau lors de mon prochain voyage à Dublin!

  • Un vrai bijou! À une distance confortable du centre de Dublin se trouve ce joyau d'un immeuble des années 1840, avec un excellent appartement. Tout était parfait, de l'attention de l'hôte à chaque détail, au feu ouvert et à l'incroyable lit mezzanine.

    Dirk2019-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • Un bel espace confortable. Karin est un hôte très sympathique et serviable! :)

KARIN'S GUIDE TO THE CITY LOCAL GROCERY SHOPPING, SERVICES AND BREAKFAST OPTIONS In general, shopping hours are 9.30-6pm, with late-night shopping till 8pm on Thursdays. Sunday opening is from noon. BREAKFAST The Kingfisher Café, a Dublin institution, on the corner of Parnell Square and Parnell Street West is great for a 'Full Irish Breakfast', and numerous variations, including porridge. Everything is cooked to order and the sraff are professional and friendly. Breakfast served 9am-12:30, 7 days a week. Later in the day they have excellent fish and chips. Koffee and Kale, on the corner of Hill Street and Gardiner Place, two blocks away has great coffee and pastries, and soup/salad/sandwiches at lunchtime. LOCAL GROCERY SHOPPING Tops in Pops, just down the street to the right, for fresh local produce and basic groceries, 8.30am to 6pm Monday to Saturday. They are a fourth-generation local business, who have been trading on the site since 1931. The Londis corner store next door opens 8am to 10pm, but charge for privilege. There is an ATM machine at the back, right hand side of the store. Dunne's Stores, is the indigenous supermarket and department store chain, and has branches in every sizeable town throughout the country. There are two local branches. In North Earl Street, opposite O’Connell Street’s Spire, the Off-Licence (liquor store) is in a separate premises, a few doors apart - look for the James Joyce statue. You will find a bigger branch in the ILAC Shopping Centre, flanked by Henry Street, Moore Street and Parnell Street West . There is Metro Tesco on Parnell Street West, just past the Rotunda Hospital. A main branch is to be found in the basement of the Jervis Centre, off Henry Street. Carney’s Butchers, is another multi-generational local family business, which prides itself on the quality of its meat. In keeping with local tradition, they sell fresh fish on Friday’s. F.X. Buckley’s Butchers have two local branches; Moore Street and Talbot Street. This is a very old Dublin business and they have everything; free-range pork, beef and lamb from their own herds, poultry, game in season and fish, and, in the Moore Street branch, a deli counter for cooked meats next door. They are very obliging, and the lads have a great line in smart (sassy) chat. PHARMACIES Foley's Pharmacy on Parnell Street East is a 100+ year-old family business; they are very helpful. Opening hours: Monday-Saturday 9am 6pm. Michael recently (May 2017) won the National 'Community Pharmacist of the Year' award, and a nicer, kinder, or more helpful man you will never meet.... There is a late-night pharmacy, Hickey’s at 55 Lower O’Connell Street, (west side, within the block closest to the river). Opening hours: 8am -10pm M-F, 8.30am-10pm Saturday. 10am 10pm Sunday. Web: (EMAIL HIDDEN) POST OFFICES Nearest Post Office is Parnell Street East, at corner of Marlborough Street, but much nicer is the GPO, O’Connell Street. 1828 façade, but badly damaged in the 1916 Rising, and largely rebuilt in 1928. The main hall is beautiful, with its entire original, 1928, fittings intact. It also contains the iconic statue, by Oliver Shepherd, The Dying Cuchullin. You will find a booklet with postal rates in the black folder. BANKS Allied Irish Bank has a branch on O’Connell Street, at the SW junction with Parnell Street, opposite the Rotunda Hospital. ATM in the wall. Bank of Ireland has a branch at Lower O’Connell Street, on the east side of the street, between Middle Abbey Street and Ashton Quay.

The dentist is happy to see people on an emergency basis. Call for appointment. Tel:(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) blocks away, going West) NORTHSIDE LOCAL RESTAURANTS: 'The Cobalt Cafe', in a beautiful Georgian house on North Great Georges Street, which doubles as a gallery, is great for lunch. Parnell Street, Dublin's emerging 'Chinatown' is just a half a block to the south. Newly opened, on Parnell Square West is 'Mr Fox', serving modern Irish food in a smart and comfortable setting, by the same team who operate Dublin's much lauded 'The Pig's Ear' on Nassau Street, overlooking the Trinity College playing fields.. '147 Cafe' at 147, Parnell Street East, opp the Marlborough Street junction, serve good Illy coffee, and great sandwiches, daytime hours. Nearer the river, 'Le Bon Crubeen' (crubeen=pig's trotter- it's a modern Franco-Irish restaurant) is on Talbot Street, as is the venerable and immensely popular 'Talbot 101'. It is packed to the gunnels with locals between 5.54 and 7.15, enjoying their pre-theatre supper before the Abbey curtains rise at 7.30, when they relinquish their seats for the rest of us! On the riverfront, I love Panem, facing the Millennium Bridge, for a quick coffee and a delicious Sicilian almond biscuit, baked on the premises. A few doors down, you'll find a cluster of Italian bars, cafes and restaurants serving good quality food. Half a block to the east is the trendy 'Winding Stairs' restaurant, with its book-lined walls (relics of a former second-hand bookshop-cum-cafe of the same name); The woollen Mills on the corner of Liffey street does great casual food, including excellent brunch. Back on Capel Street, locals rave about Brother Hubbard, and the Soup Dragon, for lunch. Blas cafe in the Chocolate Factory, on Kings Inn Street, off Parnell Street West has an interesting, casual menu, in a bright, spacious and funky former factory (daytime). LOCAL PUBS include the 'Hill 16' just opposite the house, on Gardiner Street - very popular with the GAA crowd on match days (the Gaelic Athletic Association Stadium, Croke Park, is just 3 blocks to the east), they pull a superb 'pint'. ‘The Heritage Parnell’, on Parnell Street West, just around the corner from O’Connell Street, does 'pub grub'. 'The Flowing Tide', on the corner of Marlborough Street, opposite the Abbey Theatre, is one of my favorites - after the curtain goes down in the Abbey, half the cast are likely to be at the bar. A few doors closer to O’Connell Street is Mulligan’s, another very nice pub, dating from the Edwardian era. 'The Church' on Mary Street, in a converted 1720's church, is another fine place for a drink; the former owner won many accolades for the high quality of the restoration. Capel Street has many typical local pubs, which have the added benefit of serving a largely local population. They include 'O’Neill’s' and 'Slattery's which is good for music. 'The Black Sheep' has the local craft beers covered, and does good bar food, (as does its sister pub, ‘The Brew Dock’, on Store Street, at the bottom of Gardiner Street. The north side traditional music 'musician’s' bar is 'The Cobblestone', at the top of Smithfield, and is suitably grungy. DEPARTMENT STORES AND FASHION Henry Street, off O’Connell Street, at the SPIRE, is the premier shopping street on the north side of the river. Here you will find Arnott’s the local department store, which highlights Irish fashion and design, throughout the store, and has several nice cafes. Henry Street also contains large branches of Debenhams and Marks&Spencers, as well as branches of most of the high street fashion chains. There are two large shopping centres, the Jervis, with a large branch of Tesco’s in the Basement, and the ILAC, which has a Dunne's Department Store, with a Food Hall in the basement. (You can shop for fresh produce on adjacent Moore Street, Dublin's oldest street market, now also home to a thriving cluster of ethnic food markets and restaurants.) NORTHSIDE CULTURAL ATTRACTIONS The North side of Parnell Square is home to the city's Hugh Lane Gallery of Modern Art; we share a significant collection of Impressionist painting with the Tate Gallery in London, part of the Hugh Lane Bequest, which is rotated in seven-year cycles. (The cafe, overlooking an interior garden, is called 'Hatch'; the original is in the basement of the 'Little Museum of Dublin' on St. Stevens Green). Next door is the Writer's Centre, and next door again, is the Writer's Museum, with a Michelin-starred restaurant in the basement, the amazing Chapter One. Down on the East side of Parnell Square is the beautiful jewel-box that is the Gate Theatre - part of the 18th-century entertainment complex established by the entrepreneurial Dr. Bartholomew, to help support his new Rotunda Maternity Hospital (the oldest purpose-built such hospital in the world, and still delivering babies on a daily basis, 270 years later (9000 in 2012). You could be seated in either the Abbey or Gate Theatres within 10 minutes of leaving the house, and the James Joyce Cultural Centre is even closer, on North Great Georges Street (don't forget to check out the Cobalt Cafe, opposite). Hop on the Luas Red Line, going west, in Abbey Street, halfway between Mountjoy Square and the river, and alight ‘Museum’ stop. The National Museum, Collins Barracks, housed in an old military barracks, dating from 1702, contains the Decorative Arts Collections, (basically, everything post 1700). Descend at the next stop, ‘Heuston’ for IMMA, Ireland's National Museum of Modern Art, housed in the old Kilmainham Hospital, built in the1660’s. It pre-dates its more famous sibling, the Chelsea Hospital, in London by several years. Not to be missed is the Old Jameson Distillery, in Smithfield. Jameson was distilled here until 1971, when three historic distilleries amalgamated, and centralized distilling in Midleton, Co. Cork. The Museum is very well presented; one is guided around the distilling floor, among the huge old pot stills before retiring to the Bar to sample the goods. Nearby is one of the oldest churches in Dublin, St.Michan’s, on Church Street, dating from the mid-11thC. There are several mummified bodies in the basement, thought to be Crusaders. When I was a child, one was allowed to shake their hands….. SOUTHSIDE In the south city centre, the RESTAURANT HUB is in the pedestrian streets to either side of Grafton Street, and in Temple Bar. Particular favourites of mine include: * The Pig's Ear, Nassau Street * Nede, Temple Bar Square * Eden Bar and Grill, South William Street * The Green Hen, Wicklow Street * Fallon and Byrne, Exchequer Street, basement wine-bar, full service restaurant first- floor, and coffee bar within the food-hall on the ground floor. * Fade Street Social, Fade Street, tapas bar and full-service restaurant. * The Rustic Stone, Exchequer Street, upmarket, sophisticated and healthy ‘fast food’. * Cornucopia, Wicklow Street- vegetarian café day, full service by evening. * The Port House, South William Street, wine bar and tapas. * Stanley's, St. Andrew Street, off Wicklow Street- wine bar and full service * Pinxto, Crowe Street, Temple Bar, as above, same management. * Cleaver East, Clarence Hotel - chef Oliver Dunne had a Michelin star in the parent restaurant, Bon Appetit, Malahide village, until he decided to hand it back and get a life Southside city-centre TRADITIONAL PUBS we like are: * Mulligan's, Poolbeg Street * Neary's, Chatham Street * Grogan’s, South William Street * International Bar, Wicklow Street * O'Neill's, Suffolk Street * The Dawson Lounge, Dawson Street * The Stag's Head, Connaught Court * The Long Hall, South Great Georges Street * Doheny and Nesbitt’s, Merrion Row * Kehoe’s, South Anne Street * The Duke, Duke Street Fronting the river, TEMPLE BAR, with its vibrant mix of independent shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs, markets and cultural institutions occupies an area three blocks deep and ten blocks long. At the western end, look out for the two branches of the Queen of Tarts- a wonderful tea shop that offers really good home baking and teas and coffees, all served on mismatched antique china (Lord Edward Street and Cow's Lane). Piglet Wine Bar, on the same pedestrian street had a lovely wine selection and great tapas, at good prices. TEMPLE BAR FARMERS MARKET, is held every Saturday in Meeting House Square, 9-4.30, now has a smart new tensile roof for wet days, and is a good place to rub shoulders with the locals, whilst sampling local food culture. Don’t miss the Oyster Stall, , or David Llewyllan’s fantastic ‘Double L’ local cider- 100% apple (not even water), and the two local cheese stalls, among others. Don’t’ forget to check out the overflow stalls on Curved Street, where Rossa Crowe’s fantastic bread is on offer- Rossa took himself off to France for two years to train, and now produces slow fermented breads, made with the very best organic flours. SOUTHSIDE CULTURAL ATTRACTIONS TRINITY COLLEGE is a good orientation point; from here it is easy to find the mediaeval core, the cultural/political hub of the country around Kildare Street, and the Grafton Street fashion hub. The campus occupies a 40-acre (16ha.) site, and is over 400 years old, though what one sees today are mainly beautiful eighteenth-century buildings. It is worth a wander around, after a visit to spectacular Long Library, to see the Book of Kells and other illustrated Celtic manuscripts. From Front Gate, look south to Grafton Street or west up College Green and Dame Street, which lead to the mediaeval core. At the brow of the hill you will find: * Dublin Castle (visit the State Apartments, the Chester Beatty Library and the lovely garden in front (which is actually the helicopter-landing pad for the Castle). * The City Hall with its 'Museum of the Capital' in the basement is worth a look- the Hall is free, and there is a nominal charge for the Museum. * Christchurch Cathedral * Dublinia-in the Christchurch Chapterhouse (Viking Exhibition). * Old Saint Audeon's Church, built almost into the city wall. * St Patrick's Cathedral, and historic park beside. * Marshe's Library-the oldest public library in these islands, 1701. * Francis Street- the Antiques Quarter. * Thomas Street/Meath Street, for a touch of 'Old Dublin'. * The Guinness Storehouse. * Royal Hospital, Kilmainham, (IMMA) Ireland's National Gallery of Modern Art, with its wonderful, recently restored formal garden. KILMINHAM GAOL is worth a visit, and tells the story of Irish Nationalism. It can be reached via the grounds of IMMA, passing Bully’s Acre, and old graveyard, where Brian Boru was reputedly rested on his way to his final burial place in Armagh. Alternatively, exit onto Nassau Street, with its cluster of high-quality shops showcasing the best of Irish crafts - fashion, knitwear, weaving, glassware, ceramics and contemporary jewellery - the Kilkenny Shop has a great cafe upstairs, with views over College Park. The Pig's Ear restaurant is one of my all-time favourites. Continue along the College Park railings till you reach Kildare Street, the cultural-institutional hub of the country. All of our national cultural institutions have free admission. Here you will find the National Library, and the National Museum, facing each other over the forecourt of Leinster House, home to the Oireachtas, our National Parliament. The National Library has a lovely exhibit on the poet, W.B. Yeats, and the Treasury, in the National Museum houses both the Bronze Age and Early Christian collections. On the opposite side of the block, on Merrion Street/Merrion Square, you will find the National Gallery, and the Natural History Museum (known to Dubliner's of my father's generation, as 'The Dead Zoo’. This is a very refreshing look to the past, with absolutely no interpretation, and nothing, not even a postcard, to buy). The National Gallery is almost through a four-year renovation programme; in the meantime, the Millennium Wing, on Clare Street, has a ‘highlights of’ exhibition, and the Café and Gift Shop are also accessed via the Clare Street Entrance. GETTING AROUND Two operators offer Hop-On/Hop-Off tours: (URL HIDDEN) (URL HIDDEN) They both offer a 2-day ticket, and cost roughly the same price - check them out online before you make up your mind. One can buy an integrated LEAP card in most newsagents, at train stations, and in the Dublin Bus Head Office at 42 O’Connell Street (on the west side of the street, just north of the Spire). This can be used on the LUAS, DART, some suburban mainline trains, and on Dublin Bus routes. There is also a 3-day tourist pass, the Freedom Ticket, which provides good value. €28 will give you 72 hours transport, starting at the Airport; Airlink from the airport, the Hop-On-Hop –Off tourist bus and all local bus routes. Web: (URL HIDDEN) •The DART, the local electric commuter train, runs north/south along the coast. The north-side city centre station is Connolly, on Amiens Street, facing Talbot Street, but I usually suggest people use Tara Street, as Connolly is also a mainline station, and is very big, and a bit confusing. Tara is purely a commuter station, and is about the same distance. It is on George’s Quay, just south of the Custom House. The other south-side city centre station is Pearse, on Westland Row, at the south end of the Trinity campus. •The LUAS Red Line runs east-west through the north side of the city, as far east as the docks, and serves both Connolly and Heuston mainline stations. The nearest stop to Mountjoy Square is Abbey, on Middle Abbey Street, opposite the Abbey Theatre. The LUAS Green Line serves the south suburbs; Ranelagh, Dundrum, Leopardstown Racecourse, and on out to Cherrywood, on the county boundary with Wicklow. •Main cross-city bus routes run north-south through O’Connell Street. The No.7 terminates on Mountjoy Square North, and there is a ‘shopper’s fare’ of 50c, to Grafton Street- alight at Trinity. On the return journey it skirts the Trinity campus and comes along Pearse, to the east of the campus - catch it on Clare Street, at the Millennium wing of the National Gallery. •DUBLIN BIKES are free to use for the first half hour, and have a stand on Mountjoy Square West, but one needs to go to the Princes Street stand (to the right hand side of the General Post Office (GPO)), to purchase a short term card. It costs €2, and is only available to credit card holders. SHOPPING WITH A DIFFERENCE Those interested in the local fashion, art and design scene should look out for the following addresses (in no particular order): •Designist, South Great George's Street (stock chosen for good design) •Irish Design Store, Drury Street •Article, Powerscourt Townhouse Centre (housewares) •Irish Designer Store, Top floor Powerscourt Townhouse Centre •Cow's Lane Gallery, Temple Bar (artist’s collective) •The Jam Factory, Nicholas Street (artist’s collective) •Avoca, Suffolk Street •Kilkenny Shop, Nassau Street •Designyard, South Frederick Street (jewellery) •Louise Kennedy, couturier, Merrion Square, and Tipperary Crystal •Gallery Zozimus, Francis Street (art gallery and carefully chosen crafts) •Graphic Studio Gallery, Temple Bar (artist-printmaker’s gallery) •Malthouse Design Centre and Shop, Distillery Court, 537 North Circular •Magee's of Donegal, Wicklow Street, and, •Kevin and Howlin, Nassau Street have hand-woven tweeds covered. •Dubarry's, College Green produce wonderful, country-style outerwear, including the most perfect alternative to sweaty, waterproof Wellington boots… •Monaghan's, Hibernian Way, the House of Ireland on Nassau Street and the Sweater Shops on Wicklow Street and Nassau Street has the best selections of traditional knitwear. Monaghan's specialise in cashmere. •The Cloth Shop, St. William Street, for interesting designer fabric, including a good selection of Irish Linen, and Liberty of London INDEPENDENT BOOKSHOPS and MUSIC STORES Eason’s, O’Connell Street, is a Dublin institution for over 100 years. It encompasses a large stationery department, a branch of Tower Records on the top floor, academic books in the basement, a nice café and two floors of general books. It is a good place to browse books of Irish interest, and they have a really good Information Desk. Chapters, Parnell Street West is my ‘local’. John Gannon is one of the best booksellers in the business, and his staff are hand-picked enthusiastic bibliophiles, one and all. Stock is a mixture of the latest releases, and carefully chosen remaindered books. Their ordering service is superlative, and they ALWAYS know exactly what one is talking about, even with just the vaguest, half-remembered clues from a newspaper review. Very strong on contemporary fiction, natural history, non-fiction and books of Irish interest. Extensive second-hand section upstairs. The Secret Bookstore, Wicklow Street is another favourite. It’s tucked away down a passage, near the L’Occitane shop and often throws up gems among its large second-hand stock. An eclectic music store occupies the rear of the shop. Cathach Rare Books, Duke Street, specializes in Irish first editions, and have an interesting selection of Irish maps and prints. Stokes Books is another interesting antiquarian/secondhand shop, specializing in books of Irish interest. You’ll find it in Georges Street Arcade. Claddagh Records, Cecelia Street, Temple Bar, is primarily a music publisher, but they have a retail outlet in Temple Bar, which is the oldest independent music shop in Dublin, and specializes in traditional Irish music, with some interesting World Music additions. PLACES OF WORSHIP: Roman Catholic: Many Catholic churches have Mass on Saturday evening, in addition to morning Masses. •St. Francis Xavier Roman Catholic Church, Upper Gardiner Street. Gospel Mass, 7.30pm Sundays, September to mid June. •St. Mary's Metropolitan Church - the Pro-Cathedral, Marlborough. Sung Mass, 11am, Sundays, with the Palestrina Choir. •St. Joseph’s Church, Berkeley Road, Dublin 7. •St. Teresa’s Church, Clarendon Street Church, choir sings at 11 o’clock Mass, Sunday’s •St. Peter’s Church, Phibsborough, Dublin 7, has wonderful Harry Clarke ((PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)) stained glass windows. •Whitefriars Street Church, Aungier Street, church has relics of St. Valentine. Church of Ireland: •Christchurch Cathedral, Christchurch Place, sung Services Sundays, •St. Patrick's Cathedral, Nicholas Street, sung Services Sundays. •St. Anne’s Church, Dawson Street, Dublin 2 Jewish: Dublin Hebrew Congregation (URL HIDDEN) Daily services in Synagogue at 32a Rathfarnham Road, Public Transport: Buses: (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN).

Tel: +(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) Anwar-up-Madina Moore Street, Dublin 1. SHORT TRIPS OUTSIDE THE CITY BY PUBLIC TRANSPORT NORTH: Catch the No.46A bus, (heading north on O'Connell Street to the Phoenix Park- the largest enclosed urban park in the world, 1750 acres behind a seven-mile-long stone wall. Ashtown Castle Interpretive Centre, with its wonderful walled garden and café is a good place to orient oneself. From here, on Saturdays, it is possible to visit Aras an Uachtarian, the official residence of our President. One can also visit Farmliegh, the Official State Guesthouse, a former Guinness mansion. Among it’s attractions are an art gallery, café, occasional free concerts, and regular weekend Farmer’s Markets. The Park also houses the Dublin Zoo, (1827, the second-oldest Zoo in the world, after London’s Regent Park Zoo). Several herd of Fallow Deer roam at liberty. Many sports are catered for; there is Polo ground, a cricket club, and lots soccer pitches. The Duke of Wellington is commemorated by a marvellous Sobelisk, and the Forty Acres affords superb views over the city, with the Royal Hospital and Guinness Brewery in the foreground, along the south side of the River Liffey. Phoenix Park can also be reached via the LUAS Red Line, direction Tallagh, heading west. Alight at 'Museum' and take a detour into the National Museum-Collins Barracks, which houses the Decorative Arts, post-1700, wonderful collections of silver, furniture, glass and other artifacts. Just up the road, in Glasnevin, there are three worthwhile attractions: Glasnevin Cemetary, was founded by Daniel O’Connell as one of his first initiatives, post Catholic Emancipation in 1829, to provide a dignified place for Catholic burial. The Glasnevin Museum is new, and has superlative displays of Nationalist history. They also have a very good Geneology Department. The National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin, date from the end of 18thC. Though relatively small, they contain an internationally-aclaimed collection of plants and three iconic Glasshouses, by Turner of Dublin, which have all been restored in the recent past. There is a nice café in the Gardens, and entry is free. The Gravedigger’s Pub, over-looking a Green, is not to be missed. It acquired its name from the fact that there used to be a hatch in the rear wall, through which the gravediggers were served. They do nice simple pub food, and one can sit outside on sunny days. Walk back into town, and stop at either the The Botanic Bar at Harte’s Corner or the Brian Boru, typicl local bars. The Whitworth, at Cross Guns Bridge, with nice food, is on the corner of the Royal Canal. Take a stroll east down the canal bank, and you will see swans, and moor-hens going about their business. At the next bridge, at Dorset Street, look out for the lifesize bronze statue of Brendan Behan, a local author. From here is just a few minute’s stroll up Belvidere Place, with its charming stepped terraces of tall Georgian houses, to Mountjoy Square. Another favourite is the Marino Casino, in Fairview/Clontarf, an early 18th century pleasure house, built to the design of Sir William Chambers, for Lord Charlemont, purely for entertaining, also just a few miles by bus, north of the city centre. Catch the DART, the coastal commuter train, heading north, at Tara Street Station, on the South Liffey quays, at Butt Bridge, and take a short ride. You have the choice of Howth (a working fishing village) or Malahide. Howth Demesne or Howth Head, behind the village will both afford walks with great views; the Harbour has a dozen restaurants along the quay- ranging from take-out fish and chips to the very upmarket. Book an early-evening window table at Aqua, and be astonished by the sunset over the coast, looking north-west. Another favourite of mine is Deep, midway along the quay (and do watch out for the local tame and greedy Harbour Seal, who begs shamelessly from the trawler men, who tie up alongside). Malahide is a charming village, with some of the most expensive urban residential properties in the country. Good food and good shopping are to be had here. On the edge of the village you will find Malahide Castle and Demesne, open to the public, which includes a renowned private Arboretum, as Milo de Malahide, the last of his family, (who had occupied the castle continuously since Norman times, in the 10th-12th centuries) was a significant plants-man. The Castle contains the National Portrait Collection, as was as magnificent furniture and other contents. There is a smart new branch of the AVOCA Shop and Café in the Courtyard. Oliver Dunne's restaurant, Bon Appetit, on St. James Terrace, has superb food in elegant, relaxed surroundings.(This restaurant had a Michelin star for years, but the chef/patron decided to return it, and simplify his life - a case of 'been there-done that'.) SOUTH: South of the city you will find Rathfarnham Castle, and its Berkeley Costume and Toy Collection (No. 16 bus). Marley Park is a little further, just at the foot of the Dublin Mountains. It has wonderful parkland with easy walks, and a magnificent walled garden with a nice cafe. The No.16 bus, from O’Connell Street will leave you close by. Powerscourt is at the edge of Enniskerry, its associated estate village, at the end of the No.44 bus route, which winds its way through the south side suburbs, into Wicklow, through the Scalp, a deep and picturesque glacial valley. The 19th century gardens are fabulous, and make great use of the 'borrowed landscape' beyond. The terrace and Nepture fountain are centred on the Sugarloaf mountain, which marks the beginning of the Wicklow Mountains. The Powerscourt Waterfall, part of the same estate, is a few miles further on, and there are beautiful, way-marked, woodland and moorland walks in the hills nearby. Do be mindful; these ‘mountains’ can be deceptive- while not high, they can be treacherous, as weather conditions can change in minutes. Stick to the way-marked paths, and do keep an eye on the weather. Take the DART south to Bray and Greystones - via Dun Loughaire, Dalkey and Killiney - all interesting villages, with many cafes and restaurants. Killiney Hill, with its eighteenth century obelisk at the summit, is a short climb that results in amazing views over Dublin Bay, and down into the Wicklow Mountains beyond. There is a nice pub in in the ‘village’- ‘The Druid’s Chair’. Dalkey is a charming village with old-fashioned shops and lots of nice pubs, cafes and restaurants. The local Dalkey Castle Heritage Centre, is worth checking out, and in the summer run a theatre programme, and walking tours. Bray Esplanade is a classic Victorian seaside amenity, sturdily built from local granite - the perfect place to enjoy an ice-cream. Campo di Fiori, either the Restaurant or the Café, both near the train station and the north end of the Promenade, are particular favourites of mine. If one is feeling energetic, one could contemplate the Cliff Walk from Bray to Greystones - 4miles/6km along the rough cliff path. Lots of nice pubs for a pint of Guinness at the other end, The Hungry Pear is my favourite café, among many. The DART will take you straight back into the city. But.. make sure to do it in the morning, as by mid-day the path is in shade, and it can be windy and cold. WEST: Travelling into the rich plains of Kildare, by the No. 67 bus route, you will come to the historic village of Celbridge, just twelve miles from the city centre. Castletown House is Ireland's finest Palladian mansion, and was saved from destruction by Desmond Guinness, in the early 1960's. He purchased it from the construction company who had acquired it. They intended to demolish it, to make way for a vast suburban housing estate. The Irish Georgian Society, founded by Desmond Guinness, restored the house and furnished it with the help of many volunteers and sponsors, and opened it to the public, a heroic task for a small membership conservation society. Today, it is in State ownership, and it is the flagship Georgian heritage property of Ireland. It is beautifully presented, and the parklands are undergoing restoration. A local bus, or the commuter train from Connolly Station in Amiens Street, will take one to Maynooth, a charming University town, with another magnificent Palladian mansion, Carton House, now operating as a very upmarket hotel and golf club. Lots of companies offer day-long coach tours. Some involve very long days, i.e, Cliffs of Moher in Clare and the Giant’s Causeway on the Antrim coast. Two more local, and very worthwhile ones are either: The Boyne Valley Tour (Newgrange Neolithic ( 5000 yr old World Heritage Site) / Mellifont Cistercian ruins- (12thC.)/ Monasterboice Early Christian (6th-8thC.) The Wicklow-Glendalough Tour (Powerscourt / Wicklow Mountains National Park and Glendalough (Glen of the Two Lakes) a 6thC. Early Christian site, in beautiful wooded valley. Details of both of these trips, and others, are available in the big black folder in the apartment.
    A beautiful, historic residential square, built in 1790's, within 5-10 minutes walk of the city centre. Elegance and convenience combined with a bit of inner city grittiness. I have loved it all, since 1978!
  • Un grand espace. Hautement recommandé.

    Jake2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • C'est un super appartement dans un emplacement très central, on peut aller à pied à tout. Karin est également très douce et super utile dans les recommandations dans et autour de la ville. L'appartement est merveilleusement conçu et aménagé, je ne pourrais pas recommander plus haut!

    James2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Bel appartement très spacieux et unique, nous avons adoré la cheminée. Karen est également un hôte formidable, toujours là pour vous aider et avec beaucoup d'attention. Nous reviendrons à coup sûr! Merci beaucoup de la France.

    Ed2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • L'endroit était impeccable, très confortablement décoré. Tant d'extras. Le grenier n'est pas grand, mais moi non plus. J'ai dormi comme un agneau. Super utile de me laisser laisser mes bagages pour un pick-up de voiture de location. A dépassé mes attentes.

    Barbi2019-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • La maison est belle et très bien meublée. Nous pouvons fortement recommander cet hébergement. Seul le bruit de la route dérange quelque chose.

    Hubert2019-08-01T00:00:00Z
  • À notre arrivée, il était tard dans la soirée, mais Karin nous avait laissé des instructions faciles à suivre pour accéder nous-mêmes à l'appartement. La maison dans laquelle se trouve l'appartement est magnifique et l'appartement lui-même est magnifique également (ce lustre!). Nous étions trois et un lit pliant était fourni afin que personne ne doive dormir sur le canapé (ce qui est un peu dur , mais cela correspondait à l’esthétique de l’endroit.) Il y avait aussi des fruits frais qui nous attendaient dans la cuisine, ce qui était une délicate attention. L'emplacement est imbattable aussi. Globalement, c'est un excellent lieu de séjour pour notre week-end en Irlande!

    Casey2019-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • L'appartement de Kiran est unique en son genre et son hospitalité est imbattable. Nous nous sentions tellement à l'aise avec elle qu'elle se sentait comme une famille à la fin de notre visite. L'appartement décoré de manière classique contient tout ce dont nous avions besoin: du moka au mixeur portable - et le réfrigérateur est rempli de friandises comme du yogourt, du lait, des œufs et toutes sortes d'assaisonnements et de sauces à notre arrivée. Un jour, nous sommes même rentrés à la maison pour trouver un délicieux pain de malt aux noix sur notre table! Le signal Wi-Fi était un peu faible au début, mais à notre demande, Kiran a immédiatement répondu avec une solution immédiate et est allé jusqu'à nous procurer un tout nouveau shampooing quand elle a découvert que nous en étions à court. Elle a aussi les conseils les plus utiles pour explorer et se déplacer dans la ville / le pays. Kiran est un trésor caché, tout comme son appartement. Nous reviendrions certainement avec elle.

    Fantastic Apartment in the heart of the city with river views. Refurbished by award winning A2 architects, this unique space offers modern, bright open plan accommodation with amazing views of the Ha'penny Bridge, one of Dublin most famous landmarks.
    Fantastic Apartment in the heart of the city with river views. Refurbished by award winning A2 architects, this unique space offers modern, bright open plan accommodation with amazing views of the Ha'penny Bridge, one of Dublin most famous landmarks. Recently renovated by award winning A2 Architects, my 2nd floor, open plan studio apartment offers the perfect location to stay in Dublin. Situated right beside the symbol of Dublin, the Ha’penny Bridge, you are in the beating heart of the city. Everything is within walking distance, with Temple Bar and Trinity College for example just across the bridge and most other major sights a few minutes away . The airport bus is only 100 metres away, not to mention all the bars and restaurants just outside the door. Experiencing the true essence of Dublin couldn’t be any easier. Previously a 66-metres (710 sq ft) two-bedroom apartment, it was renovated to an open plan, creating a large space that allows full access to natural light. From the window overlooking the river Liffey, you get a great view of the sunset and the feeling of the city passing you by. It’s deceptively easy to just sit at the window and watch as people cross the Ha’penny bridge. I have Wi-fi, a great bathroom and fully functioning kitchen including a Nespresso coffee machine. Dublin is a conveniently compact city and my apartment is nestled right in the centre of it all, allowing for a hassle free, thoroughly enjoyable place to experience it to the full. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Location cannot be better. You are overlooking the River Liffey and directly above the beautiful Ha'penny Bridge. Cross the bridge and you are in Temple Bar with its numerous bars, restaurants, vintage clothes shops, Project Arts Centre, Gallery of Photography, Irish Film Institute and many other attractions. Dublin two main pedestrian shopping streets, Grafton and Henry St are about 5 minutes away. Trinity College with its famous Library is 3 minutes walk. The Aircoach bus from the airport drops you 5 minutes away. The LUAS tram stops in Jervis St 2 minutes away but the apartment is so central you probably won't be using public transport at all. I personally wouldn't recommend car hire as a lot of the streets are one way and it can be tricky to drive around if you are not familiar with the city. Notes: -The sofa bed in the pictures is BoConcept Melo 6070 Double Sofa with reclining and sleeping function. Size as double bed is 173cm wide x 197cm long so suitable for one or two people but not as comfortable as a bed. -The Bed is King Size (150 x 200cm) and has a memory foam mattress

Dublin two main pedestrian shopping streets, Grafton and Henry St are about 5 minutes away. Trinity College with its famous Library is 3 minutes walk. Dublin is experiencing a Renaissance after a long recession and every week a new exciting restaurant, cultural space or play is opening. It is a great time to be visiting!
  • La place de Dardo est fantastique! De grandes fenêtres donnant sur la rivière Liffey et le pont Ha'penny. C'est dans un emplacement central parfait, à distance de marche de tout ce que vous voulez faire à Dublin. Il y a beaucoup de vie nocturne à Temple bar et si vous êtes du genre à vous coucher tôt, apportez des bouchons d'oreille.

    Autumn2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Vous cherchez un endroit parfait à Dublin? Arrêtez de chercher juste ici. Cette revue n'a besoin de rien d'autre.

    John2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Le loft propre et élégant de Dardo était l'endroit idéal pour nous baser à Dublin pour nos aventures en ville et à proximité des arrêts de bus pour nos incroyables excursions d'une journée. Vous êtes vraiment en plein cœur du centre-ville. Cela étant dit, vous obtenez du bruit en ville, surtout les vendredis et samedis, donc si cela vous dérange, les bouchons d'oreille fonctionnent très bien! Il y avait de nombreux pubs, restaurants, magasins et autres services à proximité. Dardo était un hôte formidable et a été très réactif à nos questions et a été rapide avec notre remise des clés. Impossible de demander un meilleur hôte et nous avons apprécié ses recommandations! Merci encore Dardo de nous avoir permis d'utiliser votre espace! Nous voulons déjà planifier un voyage de retour!

    Kelli2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Dardo a très bien communiqué tout au long et a été très arrangeant avec nous. Nous avons atterri à Dublin assez tôt et nous avons pu déposer nos bagages tout de suite, ce qui nous a donné le temps d'explorer. L'appartement est dans un emplacement parfait et est très propre et bien rangé. Nous nous sentions vraiment en sécurité ainsi que l'accès et la sécurité du bâtiment étaient très bons. L'appartement était très spacieux et nous nous y sentions très à l'aise.

We have put a lot of effort into these documents and improve them on a regular basis. Bedroom 1 - Double bed for 2 persons Living room - Double Sofa Bed for 2 persons The apartment has plenty of space for you to relax in peacefully with Dublin on your doorstep.

  • Endroit incroyable!

  • L'endroit de Liam est parfaitement situé, c'est propre, c'est vraiment bon pour les familles (des poussettes doubles peuvent même rentrer dans l'ascenseur et la porte d'entrée de l'appartement). La cuisine est facile à utiliser. Merci pour tout Liam.

    Simarjeet2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • Vraiment bel appartement avec toutes les commodités et un emplacement vraiment agréable!

    Agustín2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • L'endroit était très bien équipé. Il est même équipé d'un lit bébé, d'une chaise haute, d'un lave-linge, d'un sèche-linge et d'un lave-vaisselle. J'adore la cuisine car vous pouvez trouver l'équipement dont vous avez besoin pour préparer un repas simple. L'emplacement était très bon. C'était à seulement 15 minutes à pied du quartier commerçant. En seulement 3 minutes à pied, vous pouvez trouver quelques bons restaurants et une épicerie. L'endroit est propre et confortable. Je reviendrai certainement ici si nous revenons à Dublin.

    Shereen2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Café, restaurants, épicerie locale très proche

    Margaret2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • La place de Liam est très bien située. Tout à Dublin était accessible à pied et il y avait un café incroyable dans le bâtiment voisin où nous allions tous les jours pour le petit-déjeuner (troisième espace, vivement recommandé!). . Il était facile de communiquer avec Liam et nous a aidés à trouver un endroit pour vérifier nos bagages avant que nous puissions nous installer chez lui. Il y a des travaux en cours dans la rue qui commencent assez tôt le matin en semaine, mais on ne peut pas faire grand-chose à ce sujet. Cela nous a simplement aidés à sortir du lit et à y aller car il y a tant à faire et à voir!

    Steve2019-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • Bel endroit, tout comme décrit. Les instructions et les conseils de quartier étaient super.

    Zoe2019-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • La place de Liam était dans un excellent emplacement pour nos besoins. C'était à distance de marche de tout ce que nous voulions faire à Dublin et à côté d'un arrêt de la ligne de tram quand nous en avions besoin. L'appartement était bien équipé pour préparer nos repas, ce qui était important car nous y étions pendant quatre semaines. Le magasin Fresh à proximité était idéal pour l'épicerie. L'appartement était propre et joliment meublé et constituait un espace confortable pour se détendre. Nous étions heureux de rencontrer Liam qui était sympathique et serviable. Dans l'ensemble, nous avons passé un excellent séjour. Nous espérons louer cet espace lors de notre prochain voyage à Dublin.

L'endroit où nous avons séjourné était vraiment propre et le lit était super confortable. Paul nous a également prêté des serviettes, ce qui était super. La maison est proche de la ville et d'autres destinations sympas. Tout était incroyable, je recommanderais ce séjour à tout le monde!

    Nadine2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • L'endroit de Paul est situé dans une très jolie partie de Dublin, donc parfait pour une bonne nuit de sommeil. L'endroit était propre et bien rangé, et Paul était plus que serviable pour toutes les questions.

    David2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Chambres impeccables très confortables et pratiques

    Paul2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Endroit très propre et bien rangé. Si vous prévoyez un week-end à Dublin, vous devriez louer une chambre ici. Temps de trajet en bus jusqu'à la ville à seulement 20 minutes ou en train à seulement 10 minutes. Gare routière et ferroviaire à distance de marche en quelques minutes. N'oubliez pas que les prises irlandaises sont différentes des nôtres. Malheureusement, nous avons oublié. Mais l'hôte était si gentil et nous a prêté tout ce dont nous avions besoin. Le matin, il y avait du thé, du café et des cornflakes avec du lait. Vous pouvez mettre vos affaires au réfrigérateur. et bien sûr utiliser la bouilloire à tout moment. La salle de bain est également très propre et il n'y a eu aucune complication avec les autres clients. Rien ne manquait. Le quartier est également très beau.

    Laura-Marie2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Bon emplacement, maison propre et très chaleureuse.

    John2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • La chambre de Paul était exactement ce dont nous avions besoin pour notre séjour à Dublin. Un trajet de 20 minutes en transports en commun dans la ville avec des arrêts de bus et des gares à moins de 6 minutes à pied (je suggère d'obtenir une carte ferroviaire à l'aéroport). Paul était extrêmement sympathique dès le début alors qu'il nous a personnellement enregistrés et nous a fait visiter la maison. Le petit déjeuner était disponible jusqu'à 11h et il nous a permis de garder les restes de plats à emporter dans son réfrigérateur. J'y retournerais totalement!

  • Super auberge près du centre!

    William2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Cette auberge est au nord de la rivière, à 10 minutes à pied du bus. Je pensais que c'était un bon emplacement. C'est propre et le personnel est sympathique. J'étais 100% satisfait du séjour.

    Brandy2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • La description était assez précise. Quand ils disent 18 lits, ils veulent dire 18 lits haha. Donc, si vous avez le sommeil léger, assurez-vous d'apporter un masque de sommeil et des bouchons d'oreille comme je l'ai fait. Avec ça, j'ai fini par bien dormir. Les lits étaient assez confortables et la chambre était très propre. Le petit déjeuner inclus était vraiment bon, et l'emplacement et le rapport qualité / prix étaient super. Parfait pour un voyageur à petit budget.

    Jordan2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Cet endroit a dépassé mes attentes à tous les niveaux. Je reviendrai ici. Le personnel est incroyablement compréhensif et serviable. Ils répondent rapidement et avec d'excellentes informations. Les chambres sont très propres, les lits sont confortables, le bureau est ouvert 24h / 24 et 7j / 7 et l'enregistrement est variable. Les salles de bain sont propres, elles ont des serviettes et des casiers si vous en avez besoin et offrent de nombreux équipements dont le petit déjeuner le matin. 10/10

    Ashley2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Super propre, incroyablement abordable, super petit déjeuner à tartiner. Vous pouvez apporter une serviette ou en louer une pour 1 €, et apporter une serrure pour les casiers sous les lits afin que vous n'ayez pas à dépenser 5 € pour en acheter une. J'ai apprécié qu'ils aient fourni des bouchons d'oreille gratuits, et la chapelle elle-même est un endroit vraiment cool et unique où séjourner. J'ai laissé mon sac dans la bagagerie pendant quelques heures et je n'ai eu aucun problème, mais il y a un panneau disant de l'utiliser à vos risques et périls, et j'ai parlé à un gars qui s'est fait voler ses bagages et lui ai dit que la réception refusait de regardez les images de vidéosurveillance alors soyez prudent avec ça. Dans l'ensemble, j'ai passé un excellent séjour et le prix est imbattable.

    Ana2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • Très bien situé, facilement accessible à pied de tous les sites principaux mais assez calme où vous aurez également une bonne nuit de sommeil à la fin de la journée.

    Claire2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • La place d'Annie était très propre, dans un emplacement très pratique pour toutes les grandes entreprises technologiques de Dublin ainsi qu'à une courte distance du centre-ville. Annie était très communicative, fournissant des instructions claires pour l'auto-enregistrement et a été en contact tout au long de mon séjour.

    Ciara2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Annie a été une grande hôtesse, tout le voyage s'est bien passé. Il a donné toutes les informations très claires et concises, vous n'aurez aucun problème pour trouver l'appartement et y accéder. Lorsque vous frappez, dites que l'appartement est un peu retiré bien que très bien desservi par le tramway et que l'accès soit quelque chose de "bizarre" mais Annie l'explique très bien. Annie a répondu à mes messages très rapidement et la chambre était très propre et présentable. Je recommanderais cet hébergement et n'hésiterais pas à répéter si je reviens en ville. =)

    Fernando2020-01-30T00:00:00Z

    Position, Position, Position. The best spot for sight-seeing, cafes, shopping & the night life of Dublin! You are literally at the Spire on O'Connell St. The bedsit is the perfect base from which to explore Dublin. Featuring keyless, digital entry, 24/7 check in, the apartment has all you need. Including a double bed, instantaneous shower, plus microwave, toaster & kettle. It's on the second floor, Cable TV & fast wifi. Great position and very experienced company run by super hosts!
    For light to early sleepers: Due to it's central location, there can be some street noise, so bringing some ear plugs may be advisable. Paper towels are not provided - this is a choice for the environment and the future. We do not supply face cloths, sorry - our linen company does not stock them. Recently renovated, with a small bathroom but the benefits of an instant shower, and kitchenette including kettle, toaster, microwave, fridge, plates, utensils, cutlery etc. Like all of our apartments, this has all a traveler needs to 'live like a local', in style, and see the sights, without having to take public transport everywhere, or to hire a car. Like your own hotel room! Shower might not suit very tall people.......
    The neighbourhood is vibrant and lively and has some fantastic restaurants near by. The area has recently included the Luas tram line which is only steps away from the accommodation. Please check our recommendations in the home manual!

  • S'il est possible de donner 6 étoiles au lieu de 5, je le ferais pour celui-ci. Donna est allée au-delà lorsque mes projets de voyage sont soudain devenus très tumultueux (gracieuseté de COVID19). Elle a vraiment un oeil pour les petites touches qui ont fait une différence substantielle dans mon voyage, et elle trouve un excellent équilibre entre professionnel et délicieux. Non seulement je recommanderais sa place à un nouveau voyageur en Irlande, mais j'y pense pour une éventuelle prochaine visite l'année prochaine!

  • Ma première auberge de toute ma vie et aucune déception. L’auberge est tout prêt de Temple Bar (5min) et de toutes les commodités. Ma chambre était calme malgré qu’on soit 10 avec le + la sdb dans la chambre. Les personnes y travaillant ont pris le temps de m’expliquer les transports emmenant à l’aéroport. Bref je recommande à fond !!!

  • Je ne peux pas dire assez de bien de cette auberge. Tout d'abord, c'est juste en ville, donc tout ce dont vous aurez probablement besoin est à distance de marche. Le personnel était super gentil et accueillant. Ils m'ont laissé utiliser les vestiaires depuis mon arrivée tôt. J'ai donc laissé tomber mon sac et je suis parti explorer avant même l'enregistrement. Et comme j'avais un départ anticipé à 5 heures du matin, le monsieur au comptoir m'a offert un petit déjeuner au cas où j'en aurais besoin même si les heures du petit déjeuner étaient de 7 à 10 heures. Leur hospitalité est sans pareille. Si je retourne à Dublin, je vais seulement rester au Times Hostel. Merci les gars!

  • Vous ne pouvez vraiment pas trouver un meilleur endroit pour le prix! L'emplacement est super et l'endroit est très propre. L'enregistrement a été facile et Asha était facile à atteindre. La seule chose est que les escaliers font beaucoup de bruit, donc j'étais inquiet de déranger les autres personnes dans la pièce voisine! La chambre est exactement comme annoncé. Nous reviendrions.

    Tina2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Location idéalement située dans Dublin, à deux pas du quartier Temple Bar et des quais. Très pratique et agréable pour un petit séjour. Bon contact avec Asha et colocation en discrétion. Je recommande vivement !

    Dublin 7, County Dublin, Irlande

    New first floor bunk room, 5 mins walk to Temple Bar, Trinity college & close to all tourist attractions & O'Connell st just 20 min walk. Featuring keyless, digital entry, & self-check in, high-speed wifi & TV, the apartment has all you need to explore from & cook, shower & sleep comfortably in. With a cosy living space to relax in, this suits people who travel light and want to be close to the action without breaking the budget. Great value and super central location.
    Paper towels are not provided - this is a choice for the environment and the future. We do not supply face cloths, sorry - our linen company does not stock them. This space consists of a bunk room with own front door access. When you walk in the lobby of the building, apartment is up 1 flight of stairs. In the apartment you have the Kitchen, Bedroom and Bathroom..
    The house is in the Liberties which is one of Dublin’s oldest and most fascinating areas which is a short walking distance to many historical attractions such as Christchurch Cathedral, Teelings Whiskey Distillery, Jameson Distillery, Guinness Storehouse, St. Patrick's Cathedral and Kilmainham Gaol. There are also many café’s, restaurants and bars around the area as well as the house being located just off Francis Street which is known as Dublin’s main Antique street. Meath Street is at the other end of my street which is home to the famous Liberty Market (Thursday-Saturday) and many shops and eateries. There is also a flea market which takes place in Newmarket Square on the last Sunday of every month and this would take approximately 5 minutes to reach by foot. This area is very popular with tourists considering its history and how centrally located it is, it really is a perfect location if you are looking to visit and experience all of what this great city has to offer.

  • Le chalet est magnifique. Il est conçu avec beaucoup de détails et d'amour et rend cet hébergement très spécial et confortable. Merci de nous avoir permis de rester.

    Christian2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • J'ai adoré mon séjour chez Fidelma! Elle était très accueillante et communicative. L'endroit était super confortable, très propre et joliment décoré. J'ai aussi apprécié la cuisine. L'arrêt de bus est très proche et j'ai vraiment aimé rester un peu à l'écart de l'agitation de la ville. Je souhaite seulement que j'aurais pu rester plus longtemps! Je le recommande vivement!

    Devyn2020-03-11T00:00:00Z

    Mary2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Un joli séjour mignon loin de l'agitation. Utilisation facile des services de bus. Super propre espace confortable, mieux qu'un hôtel générique.

    Wendy2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Un bel endroit où séjourner dans un excellent emplacement pour explorer Dublin. Le chalet lui-même était confortable et spacieux et exactement ce dont nous avions besoin pour notre mini-pause.

    Lisa2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Logement magnifique et confortable, romantique et accueillant.

    Adél2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Ce petit endroit était super. C'était un peu difficile à trouver simplement parce que les panneaux de signalisation en Irlande ne sont pas si clairs et que notre GPS ne fonctionnait pas encore tout à fait, mais une fois que nous nous sommes repérés, c'était facile. Fidelma a créé une petite oasis dans sa cour arrière. Nous avons apprécié un agréable séjour au calme, à distance de marche d'une épicerie à service complet pour acheter ce dont vous avez besoin pour préparer des repas simples. Elle avait du café, du thé et d'autres produits de base dans la cuisine de cette petite maison. Nous avons ramassé une carte de saut pour le bus au centre commercial à proximité pour monter le bus numéro 9 en ville tous les jours pour un peu d'économie sur notre prix du bus - 2,50 $ contre 3 $ par trajet. L'arrêt de buste était littéralement juste au coin. L'enregistrement a été facile, elle a été en contact avec nous tout le temps, le lit était confortable et l'endroit était mignon et propre. Envoyez-moi un message si vous avez des questions.

    We love Phibsborough because we've lived in the area since we arrived in Dublin. It is a quiet neighbourhood with a good connection to the airport and just 20 mins walking to the city centre. Within 5 mins walking distance, you can find a grocery shop, takeaway restaurants, pubs and pharmacies. Also, close by is located one of the biggest stadiums of Ireland, Croke Park (You can check the upcoming events here: https://crokepark.ie/).

    Dublin, County Dublin, Irlande

    *THIS APARTMENT IS ALL ABOUT LOCATION* Beautiful 1 bedroom top floor apartment perfectly located on the prestigious Dame Street slap bang in the heart of Dublin City Centre. Located behind us is the famed Temple bar district. Our apartment looks onto the pedestrian entrance to Dublin Castle in the medieval quarter of Dublin. Encompassing Temple Bar, City Hall, Christchurch, Patrick's Cathedral, Trinity College and Guinness storehouse a short stroll away. Dublin's best is right at your doorstep!
    A beautiful small one bedroom apartment with lovely views looking over the prestigious Dame Street Our location is ideal after a long days sightseeing THE PROPERTY IS OVER 300 years old and my apartment has been fully refurbished. This building is listed and preserved therefore we are not permitted to add an elevator. ** PLEASE NOTE - THERE IS NO LIFT IN THIS BUILDING. YOU WILL NEED TO CLIMB 60 STEPS ON THE ORIGINAL NARROW STAIRCASE OF THE MAIN HOUSE. THIS APARTMENT IS STRICTLY NON SMOKING. ** steps can be steep for elderly. But if the knees are good and your heart in ship shape, the location and view on Dame Street is worth it! This is an ideal base to relax & unwind after a long days sightseeing. Sit back and relax over coffee and watch Dublin float by from our large windows in the dining room. This apartment is located on the top floor, right in the centre of Dublin City. I love this area and I am sure that you will too. In fact it is one of the best locations to stay when visiting Dublin! Everywhere you would want to visit is just a short stroll away. This includes: Christchurch, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Temple Bar, Trinity College, St Stephens Green, Grafton Street & plenty more. The Guinness Storehouse is only a 15 minute walk away. Our apartment is beside Dublin's best restaurants, bars, theaters, traditional Irish pubs, shops, shopping centers, galleries, buses, taxis, luas, train station etc.. The airport 747 bus passes the door and so convenient for arrivals and departures to the Airport. Everything in our apartment is brand new and designed with guest comfort in mind. Our kitchen is fully equipped and has all the mod-cons including touch button Hob, Fridge, Microwave, pots, pans, utensils & bean to cup coffee machine. Our ensuite bedroom is a bijou size room equipped with a standard 4ft 6” double bed and dressed with hotel linens. It is situated at the back of the apartment away from the Main Street. In the bedroom there is a clothes rail to hang your clothes & an en-suite bathroom with separate electric shower room. This apartment is ideal for two sharing, however there is also the possibility of accommodating a third adult in the living room on our brand new sofa bed (can sleep 2 Children). We provide all the essentials you need for a relaxing trip: coffee, tea, shampoo, shower gel, towels, linens, hairdryer, iron, ironing board & washing up liquid. In short your home away from home!!
    This 3rd floor apartment is all about it's location and the bright comfortable interior with a great view to the prestigious Dame Street. What I love about my neighbourhood is the first morning views from our large windows towards Dublin Castle. It is rare to have such prime City living in a superb location in Dublin. There is lots to see and do in my area among all the famous sites there are plenty of cute cafes, award winning restaurants and great pubs. Alfresco morning breakfast at the Queen of Tarts on Cows lane, where I often read the morning paper with a sweet treat and tea from a china cup. Afternoon croissant on the heated terrace of the Castle gates with a great coffee outside Chez Max restaurant. My favourite family friendly Italian restaurant Toscana is right on my street, where they grow their own vegetables and salads from their family farm-house. Morning or evening yoga in the studio across my street. A stroll in the park in the Castle grounds on a sunny day or a visit to the Chester Beatty library! I love the people, the smile and even in the rain the fun and bustle of my City. The farmers organic market just around the corner, on a Saturday hail rain or shine! I love the walks around Trinity College and a visit to its long library and book of Kells that can be viewed there. A short stroll to Christ Church Cathedral and its beautiful crypt or to sunbathe in St Patrick's Cathedral gardens when the sun visits Dublin. A stroll to Guinness Store house to view Dublin from their sky bar. I love the shopping on Grafton Street and feeding the ducks in St Stephens Green. Of course when it rains the great craic and traditional music in the wonderful bars here any time of day. But my favourite bars have to be the Stags head off Dame Street behind the Mercantile. I love Hogans bar or 200 year old The Long Hall on George's St. Our neighbourhood for sure is most convenient for getting around with all the sights on our doorstep. But best of all I love the sense of history here. I reside in the oldest quarter of Dublin, where so much Irish history has been written.
  • Cet appartement était charmant et excellent emplacement!

    Ashley2020-03-16T00:00:00Z

    Bridget2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Mon fils de 9 ans et moi avons séjourné chez Sadia & Dee's au cœur de Dublin pendant 4 nuits. L'appartement dispose de tout ce dont vous avez besoin pour un court séjour en ville pour deux personnes et est parfaitement positionné le long des transports en commun. Il existe de nombreuses options pour la nourriture (restaurants, pubs, plats à emporter et dépanneur) et de nombreux sites intéressants à visiter à distance de marche. L'appartement était chaleureux et confortable. Sadia & Dee ont laissé d'excellentes instructions sur la façon d'accéder à l'appartement et ont rapidement répondu lorsque j'avais des questions. Juste une note sur les escaliers: oui, il y en a environ 60, mais ils sont étroits. Laissez vos grandes valises à la maison! Nous vous recommandons vivement de séjourner chez Sadia & Dee à Dublin.

    Belinda2019-12-11T00:00:00Z
  • Très bien situé et très propre. J'y retournerais volontiers!

    Adam2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • Nous avons passé un séjour agréable dans le lieu confortable de Sadia & Dee. L'emplacement ne pourrait pas être plus pratique et est accessible à pied presque partout où vous voudrez aller, en particulier tout ce que Temple Bar a à offrir. Les 60 marches qui mènent à l’appartement vous donneront un peu d’entraînement, mais ne vous inquiétez pas si vous êtes physiquement apte et n’essayez pas de porter trop de choses lourdes. Les vues de la place sont belles et nous avons adoré être dans le tohu-bohu de la région. Je le recommande vraiment.

  • Alwyn est un hôte merveilleux! Elle est très gentille et arrangeante quand mon heure d'arrivée a changé à la dernière minute. Elle me faisait le petit déjeuner chaque matin, même quand je devais partir tôt pour une excursion d'une journée, ce qui est au-delà! Elle a proposé des suggestions pour un restaurant à distance de marche et la nourriture était fantastique. L'emplacement est génial, dans un quartier calme de la ville mais à distance de marche des meilleurs sites de Dublin. La chambre est grande avec un lit confortable et les meilleurs oreillers. En tant que voyageur solo, je me suis sentie si bien accueillie et à l'aise dans sa maison. Je recommanderais fortement de rester avec elle!

    Sarah2020-02-09T00:00:00Z

    Molly-Claire2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Très bien!!

    Denise2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Avec le bassin de Blessington juste derrière, la maison d'Alwyn est très bien située à environ 20 minutes à pied du centre-ville mais aussi suffisamment éloignée de l'action pour être paisible le soir. La chambre est basique, chaleureuse et confortable, la salle de bain commune a toutes les commodités et Alwyn offrait des œufs, du pain grillé ou des céréales pour le petit déjeuner. Et le chien est très mignon! Super affaire pour un séjour à Dublin, j'y retournerais sans hésiter.

    Molly-Claire2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • Alwyn et Jake the jack russell étaient de très bons hôtes. Il est idéalement situé à environ 15 minutes à pied de la ville principale. Nous avons passé un très bon séjour, j'y retournerais volontiers si à Dublin.

    Renata2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Très belle chambre, simple mais spacieuse. Alwyn était super gentille et serviable, et elle a un petit chien sympathique. L'appartement est situé dans un quartier calme à côté d'un joli jardin public. Ce n'est pas très central, mais comme Dublin est très petite, vous pouvez vous rendre dans les principaux quartiers en 10-15 minutes à pied. Le seul inconvénient, c'est que le lit n'était pas confortable. Si vous avez des problèmes de dos, je ne le recommanderais pas. Sinon, je vous encourage fortement à rester ici.

  • J'adore cette auberge! Je recommanderais cette auberge à tout le monde. J'adore les pods. Ils sont confortables et vous avez l'impression d'avoir votre propre espace. Je dirai que si vous êtes super grand, vous pourriez passer un peu de temps, mais j'ai 5'5 et j'avais assez de place. Le bar et le café de l'auberge sont également merveilleux. De merveilleux employés y travaillent, alors allez-y! L'emplacement est incroyable. Vous pouvez littéralement marcher n'importe où ou prendre le tram comme je l'ai fait. Dans l'ensemble, c'est une auberge solide et je réserverai certainement à nouveau!

    Tina2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Le personnel a été très utile pour organiser ma réservation avec la réservation de mes amis qui ont réservé sur un autre site. Ils ont pu nous mettre dans la même pièce. La première fois que je séjourne dans une auberge et j'ai été agréablement surpris par l'expérience. Je le recommande sans hésiter à d'autres voyageurs.

    Anna2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Prix incroyable et excellent emplacement central. Parfait pour après un concert et y reviendra certainement! Je le recommande vivement !!

    Ella2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • L'auberge Jacobs Inn Pod est la meilleure auberge dans laquelle je sois jamais allé. Avoir les pods a ses avantages et ses inconvénients. Les gousses sont très privées, mais deviennent assez chaudes la nuit car elles sont fermées. L'emplacement est excellent!

    Michael2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Les chambres étaient propres, beaucoup d'intimité pour une auberge en raison des lits POD, beaucoup de plaisir au bar - tous les barmen étaient excellents. La nourriture est solide aussi.

  • Charmante petite dépendance à 30 minutes du centre de Dublin. Il y a un bus à 5 minutes à pied de la maison qui nous amène au centre. Claudia et Dany étaient très accueillants. je recommande

    Thibault2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • La place de Claudia et Dany était tellement cool! C'était privé, d'une propreté impeccable, avait tout ce dont nous avions besoin et nous nous sentions comme chez nous. L'emplacement est également privilégié car il est si proche de la ville - littéralement à quelques minutes. Je garantis que toute personne visitant Dublin sera très heureuse de séjourner ici. Je reviendrai certainement!

    Mario2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Nous avons passé un agréable séjour dans leur appartement. Il est complètement indépendant et bien équipé. Claudia et Dany sont très serviables et ont su s'adapter pour les heures. Ils n'ont pas manqué de petites attentions.

    Stéphanie2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Bel appartement dans un bel endroit, pas vraiment loin de la ville. Très content de cette visite! Recommander.

    Simona2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Parfait petit studio formé pour 2. Les équipements de cuisine étaient parfaits pour les petits repas et les collations. Le temps était froid et humide pendant notre séjour mais nous étions charmants et chaleureux à l'intérieur. L'emplacement était super pour nous. Nous ne voulions pas être dans le centre occupé. A proximité il y a un supermarché et certaines options à emporter et un service de bus qui vous emmène dans le centre de Dublin en environ 25 minutes. La meilleure partie était l'hospitalité de Claudia et Dany! Nous n'avons rien à lui reprocher. Des réponses rapides et ils nous ont vraiment fait sentir les bienvenus.

    Emma2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Claudia et Dany étaient des hôtes géniaux et nous ont fait nous sentir vraiment les bienvenus. L'endroit est vraiment bien aménagé et nous convenait parfaitement pour deux nuits. C'était d'une propreté impeccable et tout était comme annoncé. Claudia est également venue nous chercher à l'aéroport, ce qui a été d'une grande aide et a également été très rapide pour répondre à toutes les questions. Je le recommande sans hésiter!

    Alexander2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Claudia et Dany étaient des hôtes sympathiques et nous ont aidés pendant notre séjour. L'appartement était propre et avait tout ce dont nous avions besoin.

    Kam2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Mon partenaire et moi avons vraiment apprécié le séjour chez Claudia et Dany. L'endroit était encore meilleur que sur les photos. L'endroit est bien relié aux transports en commun - il faut environ 20 minutes pour se rendre au centre-ville en bus. Je recommanderais fortement cet endroit!

    Beautiful place with great views of the River Liffey and the Docklands in a very quiet and safe building. Grocery stores and the tech hub nearby with airport bus, city bus & tram stops within few minutes walk. Very close to all large tech companies.
    All amenities available.
  • Elo est à quelques secondes à pied de la 3 Arena, ce qui était absolument idéal pour mon séjour. J'espère y retourner à l'avenir!

    Jake2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Permettez-moi de commencer par dire que c'est de loin la meilleure chambre que l'on puisse avoir pour l'argent à Dublin! Cela étant dit, j'ai apprécié la qualité hôtelière de l'hébergement, les terrasses (oui, il y en a plus d'un) et la vue sur la rivière Liffey et les quais du Grand Canal - l'hébergement est loin d'être le meilleur chose à propos de cet Airbnb. Ce qui vole vraiment la vedette, ce sont les hôtes - passer du temps avec eux était le vrai régal ici. Des gens adorables et des personnages vraiment authentiques, je me suis senti privilégié d'être en leur compagnie. Nous avons partagé un repas, nous avons chanté, nous avons ri et raconté une histoire. Sur l'hébergement - il est très bien situé dans l'un des meilleurs quartiers de Dublin. À quelques pas de l'arrêt de bus Airlink menant vers et depuis l'aéroport. À quelques pas de tout vraiment. La base idéale pour quiconque explore Dublin. La chambre est grande, très adaptée pour un couple et très propre. L'appartement offre une cuisine entièrement fonctionnelle et il y a une machine à laver et un sèche-linge, ce qui est important si vous restez plus longtemps. Les photos ne lui rendent pas vraiment justice, les plafonds de l'appartement sont très hauts et les fenêtres panoramiques ouvrent l'endroit au bord de la rivière avec la lumière du soleil du matin. Je recommande vivement de rester ici. Je dois également un merci spécial à la charmante et charmante Giuliana qui a pris soin de moi à mon arrivée - merci mon amour :)

    Isabel 2019-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • Cet hostel est super, J’ai prolongé chez eux car j’étais bien. Tout est propre, c’est pas mal situé accueil chaleureux. Petit plus c’est l’ascenseur ! Le petit moins c’est que c’est mal isolé donc on entends un peu les bruits des personnes dans les couloirs ou dehors. Mais sinon super séjour j’y retournerais !

    In Casinha you will be hosted by a couple Taís & Carlos, plus three more guests. The bedroom has two bunk beds, that are small, cosy and warm. The bathroom and kitchen can be shared for up to six people, but it's not often. The two residents come from Brazil and have lived in Dublin for a few years. We really enjoy hosting and meeting people. This is the essence of Casinha (Little House in Portuguese :) Respect and love. Enjoy Dublin and welcome to CASINHA!

    We love Phibsborough because we've lived in the area since we arrived in Dublin. It is a quiet neighbourhood with a good connection to the airport and just 20 mins walking to the city centre.

Also close by, is located one of the biggest stadiums of Ireland, Croke Park (You can check the upcoming events here: https://crokepark.ie/).

La chambre était impeccable et très confortable; il y a un chauffage mais pas besoin car l'appartement est au dernier étage, donc il est charmant et chaleureux. Nous avons passé une bonne nuit de sommeil, nous reviendrons certainement dans cet appartement pour notre prochaine soirée à Dublin!
