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 working black Kilkenny marble fireplace with a spectacular gilt over-mantle mirror. The log basket is fully stocked with fuel- we charge cost price on an 'honour system'.

A small library of Irish books, and DVD's is available. The bedroom is upstairs and overlooks the apartment. 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.... A 90cm contract-quality single bed, and extra linens are available for a third guest. A charge of €10, to cover the cost of the extra laundry, will be collected upon arrival, if the room is occupied as a twin. The bathroom has a high-pressure shower and loads of storage space. •You will receive a welcome pack of the basics- quality tea, coffee, home-made granola and preserves, yoghurt, fresh fruit, free-range eggs. •100% cotton bed linen and towels are provided •Local tourist information and guide books available •Free wi-fi •Hair dryer •Fuel, at cost price, is available for the fire, if required - typically €5-10 for a night. •Washing machine and dryer are available in the building- we will do your laundry for you, for €10:00 CHECK-IN IS FROM 3pm, but we are happy to take in your bags AFTER 9am, and can give you keys to come aback at your leisure, after 3pm.

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 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!
  • Appartement dans une somptueuse maison typique Géorgienne. Idéalement placée entre le cœur de ville (15' à pied pour Temple Bar - 5' à pied pour O'Conell street) et Croke park (5'). Propreté remarquable. Service haut de gamme. Communication et instructions impeccables. Un grand merci à Karin.

  • Le logement est encore mieux que celui décrit : c'est un très bel appartement de style qui correspondait tout à fait à notre attente. Il est près du centre (nous allions à pied sans problème) et parfaitement équipé. De plus, Karin parle bien français, ce qui est important quand on ne parle pas anglais couramment ! Elle nous a bien conseillé sur Dublin et a toujours été à notre écoute. A conseiller sans hésitation.

    Jean Pierre2014-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • A proximité de l'hyper-centre, décoré avec gout, équipement complet de cuisine, hôte très sympathique et réactive... je recommande sans hésiter

  • Karin’s lovely Georgian house apartments were the perfect beginning to our Ireland adventure. The apartments were well-appointed, comfortable and had the makings of home. She also provided for parking for our rental vehicles for a small fee which was a real benefit to us. Karin was a delight in her friendliness and willingness to share favorite spots in her city. She provided books and maps and local info to allow the group of us many options for spending our time. The location was a comfortable walk to O’Connell Street, a hub of shopping, mass transit, pubs and the like. We could walk from there to the Temple Bar or even catch a bus or cab from there. Being that we were so far off our own time zone (Pacific Time), we found ourselves up late at night and sorting through a book shelf. To our delight, we found a wonderful book about Georgian houses in Ireland and the effort to renovate and restore them. It was a real delight and surprise to see Mountjoy Square mentioned in the book. Our own Georgian apartment became even more special to us as we learned of how many of the beautiful homes had been destroyed over the years, but Karin’s remained. Very nice!

  • My partner and I were in Dublin only briefly to attend a wedding in rural Ireland. We booked Karin's apartment for the week, notwithstanding we were in and out of the city. The flat is exactly what you would expect from the description. Personally, I loved the location- felt more like a local. It is certainly walkable to any of the south venues/events, as well as to transportation anywhere you might want to go. The flat is a block away from what appears to be an emerging Chinatown, very diverse with African, Korean and Vietnamese local businesses. The fireplace is, of course, everything; though the loft does not have much head room so it's not ideal for late night descents to the WC. Careful!

    Tamara2015-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Karin's absolutely wonderful place was everything I imagined and more!. The city bus from the airport was a direct shot to Karin's completely refurbished St. Georgian Home. After a day of travel I was welcomed with a fresh loaf of poppy seed bread, milk, hot tea, a beautiful fireplace, and a great Irish film to watch. Karin's home is an easy walk to the centre of Dublin and she provided me with all the travel tips I needed to find good food, places to site see, and of course shopping!!

    Danielle2013-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • The actual room was exactly as the pictures showed. Karin was a very friendly and helpful host. She gave us detailed local tips. The apartment is in an non-touristic area on a busy street, so be prepared for a bit of traffic noise. The kitchen was well stuffed and there was a breakfast "starterkit" with organic yoghurt, eggs, milk, butter, fruits and some lovely flowers on the kitchen table. Overall, it was a good choice to stay here and we would definitely do it again!

    Dublin, County Dublin, Irlande

    This bright and spacious apartment is located in a Georgian house built in the 1790s and features high ceilings, huge windows and views of leafy Mountjoy Square. It's a five minute walk to historic O'Connell Street and the lively bustle of the city centre, with excellent public transport connections for the airport and for exploring more of Ireland. Come stay in the heart of Dublin and experience the everyday life of the city on your doorstep..
    The apartment is located on the first floor of an old Georgian home, overlooking the greenery of Mountjoy Square Park. It most likely served as a drawing room when the house was first built and many of the original period features are still intact. The windows are floor-to-ceiling and south-facing, meaning the apartment is full of natural light throughout the day, even in winter. The open living space is perfect for lounging, reading and relaxing. There is a fully-equipped kitchen with a microwave, fridge, oven, kettle, toaster and complimentary tea and coffee. The bed is king-sized, the bathroom has an electric power shower and there is high-speed WiFi throughout the premises.
    Mountjoy Square is only a stone's throw away from Dublin's main sights, theatres, museums, galleries and parks. The apartment is located just a five minute walk to the top of historic O'Connell Street and the main shopping areas, restaurants and pubs are all within easy walking distance. The area is also home to many working Dubliners and it's a great place to take in the ordinary life of the city. Just five minutes north of Mountjoy Square is Croke Park, the legendary home of Gaelic games and a hub of excitement and activity whenever there's a match on.
  • Ce logement correspond parfaitement à la description et est très bien localisé.

    Elodie2018-04-30T00:00:00Z
  • L'appartement est conforme aux photos, très joli (en particulier la porte d'entrée et les grandes fenêtres) ! Il est relativement proche du centre ville (15 à 25 minutes de marche selon le lieu que vous souhaitez visiter). Seul point négatif (ce week-end en tout cas) assez bruyant : travaux devant la fenêtre le samedi matin et grosse soirée pendant la nuit de samedi à dimanche chez les voisins du dessus. Merci en tout cas ! La communication avec notre hôte a été facile et nous avons pu nous arranger pour arriver tard et partir très tôt :)

    Camille2018-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • Très jolie appartement situé dans un quartier calme, sans bar ou night-cub dans la rue. L'appartement est très propre, très lumineux grâce à de grandes fenêtres qui donnent sur un grand square. Marianne est très sympathique et la prise de rendez-vous pour la remise des clés a été très facile.

    Pierre2017-05-14T00:00:00Z
  • Aoife a été disponible pour m'indiquer des endroits où sortir, et très disponible pour mes questions avant d'arriver. Elle a été arrangeante pour les horaires, ce que j'ai beaucoup apprécié. L'appartement a du charme avec son style victorien. Je noterai que l'intitulé de l'annonce dit l'appartement spacieux, mais je trouve que cela n'est pas vraiment le cas, il s'agit plutôt d'un "grand" studio, avec un salon d'une taille correcte et une petite chambre (quasi juste le lit) et une petite salle de bain. Celle-ci n'est pas très pratique : le lavabo est minuscule rendant même difficile de se brosser les dents sans en mettre partout, et surtout il manque un petit meuble pour au moins pouvoir poser sa trousse de toilette. Le lit grince beaucoup, au moindre mouvement. Ce sont des choses qui doivent pouvoir être modifiées sans trop de difficultés, alors le studio devrait être très bien !

    Dihia2018-06-15T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent séjour, une communication et un accueil impressionnant de qualité.

    Timothé2017-04-17T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment was just as described, plenty of hot water in the shower although the bathroom sink was tiny. The kitchen had everything necessary for preparing breakfast and a light dinner. The radiant heat in the floors made the apartment warm and felt nice when barefoot. We appreciated the quiet and safe neighborhood, great for sleeping yet close to all main attractions. Easy walking distance for us but also convenient bus #7 right across the street would take you to Trinity College and back if you didn't feel like walking. Also easy connection to airport via bus #16 and short walk to Connolly Station and LUAS tram.

    David2017-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • Aoife was really helpful and charming and welcomed us to the apartment with a little bottle of wine. The flat is beautiful with high ceilings and those wonderful tall Georgian windows letting the light in. It was the first time we'd stayed in Dublin and this flat was a great base. We walked most everywhere and caught the tram a couple of times too. The flat was very warm and cosy with good wifi, a comfortable bed and a really nice shower room. The living room/kitchen is a relaxing place to have breakfast or just hang out on the big sofa recovering from a full-on Dublin day!

  • Très bon accueil par la fille de Andrea. Nous avons bien été conseillés pour profiter au mieux de notre WE. Appartement propre et fonctionnel pour y réaliser des repas. Le frigo était rempli de quoi faire les 3 petits déjeuners, c'est très appréciable. A 15min à pied du quartier animé, et des transports pour l'aéroport. Nous avons aussi apprécié de pouvoir laisser nos bagages jusqu'à la fin d'après-midi.

    SYLVIA2016-05-24T00:00:00Z
  • L'appartement d'André est très mignon, petit mais très fonctionnel. Il est parfaitement situé pour profiter à pied en quelques minutes des activités du centre de Dublin. Andréa a mis à notre disposition des produits frais pour le petit déjeuner, de nombreux commerces sont à proximité. La vue sur le parc depuis la chambre est agréable, le quartier est calme, pas de bruit la nuit. Au deuxième étage sans ascenceur. A disposition dans l'appartement de nombreux conseils pour apprécier votre séjour à Dublin.

    Anouk2016-04-04T00:00:00Z
  • Nous sommes très contents de notre séjour chez Andrea. La charmante déco vintage y a contribué. L'appartement est bien situé. Nous avons fait toutes nos ballades à pied. Parfait pour quelques jours à Dublin ! En plus, le coffee shop Jay, recommandé par Andrea, et la pizzeria Boco, sont 2 adresses à quelques pas de l'appartement à faire absolument. Tout y est excellent et fait maison !

    Caterina2018-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • L'appartement est vraiment sympas, très bien localisé - à quelques minutes du centre ville-. Nous avons pu nous déplacer à pied tout au long du séjour, sans avoir besoin d'utiliser les transports, ce qui est un formidable atout. Andrea est très agréable et toujours joignable en cas de problèmes, ce qui nous a été fortement utile le premier jour -alors que nous nous étions perdu dans Dublin-. Nous regrettons néanmoins de ne pas avoir eu de contact physique avec elle. Quelques petits détails nous ont un peu dérangé comme les quelques cheveux dans la baignoire à notre arrivée, ou l'inclinaison de la table qui n'est pas très pratique pour manger. Mais appart cela, tout est absolument parfait. La chambre est bien située, face au parc, offrant ainsi de belles nuits calmes. Je recommande grandement ce charmant petit appartement à tous les amoureux de passage à Dublin.

    Christine2018-07-04T00:00:00Z
  • Was there for a month. Had no issues at all. Beautiful flat, great location, close to everything. Andrea is a great host!

    Julien2018-06-03T00:00:00Z
  • Andrea's place was great- walking distance to everything we wanted to see, and the apartment itself was lovely and quiet. The suggestions for places to eat etc were also really good, and Andrea made sure we had everything we needed. Definitely recommended!

    Katie2017-07-10T00:00:00Z
  • Andrea's apartment is a comfortable stay on the northern side of the river Liffey. Small, cozy livingroom with kitchenette (fridge filled with breakfast items), comfortable bedroom on the rear of the apartment. An issue with the waterheater was solved adequately by her daughter who was our contactperson during our stay. Dublin is easy to explore from here. Being in contact with Andrea before our stay and with her daughter during our stay was pleasant. We can recommend staying here.

    Clasca2016-05-31T00:00:00Z
  • Andrea's place is a lovely little apartment about a 15 minute walk from Temple Bar. It is a nice option if you'd rather be away from the hustle and bustle of the city. There also happens to be a little pub across the street from her place, where you can stop in for a peaceful pint. The apartment itself is bright and trendy, perfect size for 2 people. The kitchen is well equipped if you are planning on doing a little cooking during your stay or even if you just want to reheat leftovers.

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.

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. Across the street is a shop called Window Fashions. Dublin Jewish Progressive Congregation (DJPC) Website: (website hidden) Email: (email hidden) Postal: PO Box 3059, Dublin 6 President: Mrs. Hilary Abrahamson Muslim: Islamic Cultural Centre of Ireland (ICCI) 19 Roebuck Road, Clonskeagh, Dublin 14, Tel: (phone number hidden) Islamic Foundation of Ireland (IFI) 163 South Circular Road, Dublin (website hidden): (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 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..
  • Nous avons séjourner à trois dans ce confortable appartement car nous installions notre fils pour 2 années d' étude à Dublin. Nous avons été chaleureusement reçu par Karin qui nous a bien aidé dans la découverte de la ville (bonnes adresses,...).

La cuisine est bien équipée et il y a une supérette au bout de la rue. Merci à Karin pour son accueil.

  • une adresse de charme dans le Dublin géorgian aux portes colorées ! l'accueil de Karin fut exceptionnel : ses bonnes adresses, le pub local aux 110 bières à goûter, les petits resto, et les boutiques de créateurs irlandais, n'ont plus eu de secrets pour nous ! quant à l'appartement, que dire ? les photos parlent d'elles-mêmes !!! ce fut un séjour magique à la hauteur de ce fabuleux pays.

L'appartement est très bien situé ! Il est à dix minutes à peine du centre. Nous sommes resté quatre jours sur place et avons pu "tout" visité à pied (hormis la prison de Kilmainhan où nous avons pris un taxi, mais beaucoup de transports en commun à disposition!) Nous gardons des beaux souvenirs de Dublin ! Merci Karin pour votre accueil et de nous donner la possibilité de séjourner dans une très belle maison atypique.

  • Great location! We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go during our stay. The apartment was clean and very nice. One word of advice, if you want hot water you need to make sure you turn the heat/water thermostat on to let the water tank heat up. Karin was very accommodating and we would recommend the apartment to anyone.

La cuisinette n'est toutefois pas très pratique pour se cuisiner un repas complet, c'est plutôt prévu pour ce faire un café et manger un croissant. Attention à l'heure de pointe le matin il y a un manque d'eau.

    Dublin, County Dublin, Irlande

    Experience authentic Georgian elegance is this large bright 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 and have an authentic experience in one of Dublin's special Georgian apartments, 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 first 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 three full-length windows overlooking the gardens of Mountjoy Square. It has a working Georgian grey marble fireplace with a spectacular gilt over-mantle mirror. The fully equipped kitchen has a granite worktop, a gas hob, electric oven, dishwasher and microwave. The rest of the apartment is comfortably furnished with period furniture, including a square Georgian dining table and four matching chairs, a comfortable Victorian antique Chesterfield sofa, TV & DVD player along with an iPod/iPhone dock for music. there are pashminas and Kashmir hand-loomed wool wraps, for cosy evenings in front of the fire. The bedroom is upstairs and overlooks the apartment. It has a comfortable double mattress, goose down duvet and pillows, and pure cotton sheets. Read in comfort with vintage Anglepoise reading lights. Please note there is restricted headroom in the sleeping loft- 5'10-1/2", and consequently the bed is low.

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.

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!
  • L'appartement est somptueux et les équipement sont d'excellentes qualité. Le seul petit bémol est le bruit de la rue qui est très passante, mais nous avons tout de même passé un excellent séjour à Dublin !

    Christine2018-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • Accueil et appartement très agréable. Karin est aux petits soins de ses locataires. L'appartement est très bien pour deux personnes, très bien situé pour visiter Dublin. Le seul reproche : il manque d'isolation phonique : On entend bien la circulation. Mais, cela permet de se lever tôt pour profiter de son séjour dans la capitale Irlandaise.

    Pascal2013-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • Un grand Merci à Karin pour sa disponibilité et sa gentillesse et surtout son accueil. Nous reviendrons à DUBLIN !!!

  • The purpose of my stay in Dublin was mainly to catch up with a friend (rather than sightseeing) so I was looking for a really nice space where we could chat at leisure, dine in and feel comfortable. This flat was such a treat. A beautiful and grand space to be with the highest quality features (wool throws, crisp bed linen, iPod dock). There were little unexpected extras such as finding fresh milk, eggs, butter and yogurt stocked in the fridge and fragrant lilies in the entry hall. All the staples provided to make you feel at home. Karin was really helpful and communicative - once she saw we were planning to mainly stay in - she showed me a huge collection of DVDs and recommended a few. On the occasions we did venture out to the museums - everything was easily reached on foot. This flat has all the luxurious trappings of a boutique hotel but with your own kitchen and dining table - perfect for my trip.

    Elaine2014-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely fantastic! This was my first Airbnb experience and I couldn't have chosen a better space. Karin is a walking tourist office! She has a wealth of information about everything there is to do in Dublin. The apartment was cozy and homey. The kitchen was well stocked with the necessities. And best of all, it's a great location within walking distance of everything. This or any of Karin's other listings is a sure bet.

    Mandy2015-03-24T00:00:00Z
  • Karin is a wonderful host, very cheerful and helpful. The house is beautiful, luminous and furnished with taste. Don't forget your irish merinos jumper though, as it can get cool when cold outside.

    Victor2014-11-07T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful flat in a great, historic location. We could not have asked for more.

    Rob2015-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • Had a great stay in Karin's apartment. The place was elegant and Karin was wonderful and most helpful host. The location was very convenient. Had a nice morning jog around the Mountjoy Square Park which is located just in front of the flat. Also only 10 minutes walk to the Croke Park Stadium where we went to see semifinals of gaelic football. Very highly recommended!

  • Je remercie Daragh et Edgar pour leur accueil chaleureux en fin de soirée. Le petit appartement était propre, fonctionnel, plutôt bien décoré et surtout disposait d'un excellent emplacement en plein centre de Dublin ! La communication était facile et les propriétaires étaient disponibles. A conseiller!

    Nicolas2015-11-05T00:00:00Z

  • Daragh's place was perfect for our first trip to Dublin. Daragh was very easy to easy to communicate with before and during our trip. He warmly welcomed us and was very attentive. He gave us great recommendations for restaurants geared to our vegetarian preferences and knew about the best cafes, and so much more. The apartment was clean, comfortable, pleasant, well-appointed, fabulous bed. Many relaxing evenings watching the sun set on a magnificent cityscape from the fun balcony. Do try the little cafe across the street! We will definitely be back and give two thumbs up!

    Katherine2016-06-27T00:00:00Z
  • The flat is fantastic! Lovely and clean with everything you need. Perfect location for getting into the city centre. Daragh was absolutely brilliant. So welcoming and kind giving us top tips of where to go, he even considered the best places for us with a 2 month old baby! I would definitely stay again. Thanks Daragh for making everything so easy!

    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!
    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. 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.
    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!

    Noellie2017-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • This is a really charming studio. I loved the decor and the place was immaculate. Jen was very attentive and responsive. The only minor con, in my view, is the location. While definitely central, the flat is not in the most charming part of the city (around Stephen’s Green).

    Eliza2018-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • Great little apartment for exploring dublin. Really good transport links to the airport, and everything we wanted to see was in walking distance. There were some really good restaurants just round the corner from the apartment. We were able to drop our bags off before check in with the use of the lock box which was really convenient and Jen was very responsive to queries. I would recommend this place to friends and consider staying here if I visit Dublin again.

    Abby2017-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay near downtown. Not much noise. Check in was the smoothest we had on our trip. Very responsive. Not a big deal for us, but know that there are quite a bit of stairs.

  • La cabaña de Fidelma es encantadora, tiene todo lo necesario para estar cómodo todo el tiempo que vayas a estar en Dublín. A cada lado de la calle cuenta con una o dos líneas de bus que te dejarán en el centro de la ciudad en 15/30 minutos (la línea 9 es la más rápida). Nosotros no pudimos conocer a Fidelma hasta el último momento, pero hemos estado en contacto con ella a través de la app y sus respuestas siempre han sido rápidas. Un sitio muy recomendable para una pareja que quiera pasar unos días en una cabañita pintoresca.

    Celia2018-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • Fidelma’s cottage was exactly what we were looking for! We stayed here for our first 2 nights in Ireland. There was parking available for our rental car and it’s only about 10 minutes from the temple bar area/city center of Dublin. Quiet location with everything we needed plus more. We would definitely stay here again on any future trips!

    Katie2018-06-10T00:00:00Z
  • The Cottage is beautiful and really clean. There’s everything you ask for and a little more. Fidelma is a super friendly and helpful host. By Bus you get to the Centre of Dublin in about 20 mins. We totally can recommend the stay at the Lilac Cottage!

  • Appartement très bien situé dans le quartier de Temple Bar. TRÈS tranquille et jolie, l'appartement est vraiment situé dans un emplacement de rêve. À deux minutes des bars et des restaurants et à pied de tous les attractions principales. Musées, Guinness, Jameson, centre-ville, autobus!! Franchement parfait. Seul hic, l'appartement n'est pas fait pour des gens qui veulent cuisiner. Elle est vraiment mal équipée. Si vous êtes comme moi et que vous aimez cuisiner, alors l'appartement vous décevra. Mais pour le reste, il est parfait! Kate a pensé à tout pour votre séjour, cartes, itinéraires pour sortir ou pour aller dans les musées. Il y a eu du travail pour nous offrir le plus d'informations possibles sur la ville et le pays.

    Caroline2018-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Kate ist eine sehr nette Gastgeberin, sehr hilfsbereit und jederzeit erreichbar. Das Appartement ist phantastisch gelegen und sehr ruhig. Alles ist direkt um die Ecke ... The Queen of Tarts, The Gutter Bookshop, Dublin Castle, Chez Max (französisches Café, Palace Street 1) und vieles mehr... Ich habe meine Zeit in Kate's Appartement sehr genossen und es war mir wie ein zu Hause. Bei meiner Ankunft war für alles gesorgt. Ich hatte Kaffee, Orangensaft, eine Flasche Weißwein und viele Kleinigkeiten mehr. Das Appartement kann ich nur weiterempfehlen und hoffe, dass die zukünftigen Gästen sich dort genauso wohlfühlen wie ich.

    Ilona2015-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Stayed here on a layover from US to EU. Kate' place was very clean, well stocked, with comfortable beds, good wifi and she accommodated us by letting us drop our bags since we arrived in the morning. It was the nicest airbnb rental I have stayed at to date. Much like a corporate apartment. It was very close to the Temple Bar area and their were nice shops offering local goods. It is also right next to the 747 bus stop which takes you to/from the airport.

    Eric2016-05-31T00:00:00Z
  • Kate made our stay in Dublin better than I thought possible. Central to everything, walkable to everything, and a comfy bed to boot!

    Dublin, Dublin, Irlande

    Very, very small studio apartment, centrally located in heart of Dublin near all amenities, shops, restaurants, bars and transport routes to explore. It's like a small hotel room with a mini kitchen to the side. Located off O'Connell St and just 3 minutes walk to Henry St pedestrian shopping area. For restaurants & night life Temple Bar is 10 minutes walk. All important tourist attractions can be reached on foot. Music venues & traditional pubs are convenient. Brilliant transport connections.
    Perfect for solo travellers or couples who want their own space in the heart of the city. Its a very small cosy studio. It has a double bed, private own en-suite style bathroom (i.e. shower rather than bath) and small kitchenette to the side. The decor is of a pretty basic standard but is adequate for those using it as a base to explore the city. The apartment is on the 1st Floor (people from US may call this the 2nd floor) and there is no lift/elevator so you have to climb one floor of stairs. The apartment didn't have the space to fit the washer/dryer machine, however there is one in the small lobby outside the apartment which is exclusively for this apartment. The kitchen is a tiny space to side of the main room, but it has an oven, hob, microwave, fridge and kettle.
    The location is the perfect base to enjoy all that Dublin has to offer. It is within a short walking distance of many major attractions (Trinity College, Temple Bar, O'Connell Street) and an abundance of shops, restaurants and bars. On Marlborough Street itself you will find St Mary's Cathedral with the Palestrina Choir (often performing at 11am Mass on Sundays). Right next door there is The Department of Education grounds. Further along the road there is the Dublin Institute of Technology; Adjacent to Marlborough Court is the pedestrian friendly shopping district of Talbot St and North Earl Street and Ireland's widest street, O'Connell Street. It is just a 5 minute walk to Henry St - Ireland's busiest shopping street.
  • Le point fort de ce logement est sa localisation: en plein centre, près de la o'connell street (shopping, restos, liaison aéroport..)

  • Nous avons passé un agréable séjour dans l'appartement de Roger. Il est petit mais fonctionnel, bien chauffé. L'emplacement est idéal en plein centre ville et à deux pas de tous les sites touristiques. La communication avec Roger est très facile et rapide, un peu moins avec Maria la femme de ménage qui s'occupe du Check out. L'immeuble est bruyant, on entend beaucoup la cage d'escalier, le voisinage et la machine à laver sur le palier. En conclusion, petit appartement sans prétention qui convient pour un usage restreint.

  • Jolie petit studio, très bien situé et facile d’accès !

    Mélissa2018-05-09T00:00:00Z

Nous nous n'hésiterons pas à revenir en tout cas! encore merci

  • Logement très pratique pour un week-end à Dublin. Difficile de trouver moins cher dans cette ville ! Petit mais cosy et la literie est impeccable. Nous n'avons pas rencontré Roger, mais sa communication et ses indications pour trouver les clefs étaient très claires.

    Laure2017-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • Très bon séjour dans ce petit studio. Très bon emplacement à même pas cinq minutes des magasins et transports publics. On peut tout faire à pieds. Studio calme et bien équipé.

    Solenne2018-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Endroit très propre, et très bien situé dans Dublin. Nous n'avons pas vu Roger, mais c'était prévu ainsi, et Roger était très réactif à chacun de nos messages. Il anticipait même nos besoins, et s'est soucié que tout aille au mieux pour nous. Nous recommandons donc ce petit appartement!

    Catherine2018-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • Logement idéalement bien placé au centre de Dublin ! Identique à la description fournis par Roger. Il y avait tout le necessaire. Le seul petit problème c'était le manque de pression d'eau dans la douche. Nous n'avons pas pu rencontrer les hôtes, car nos heures ne correspondaient pas, mais Roger a fait preuve d'une très bonne organisation. Nous recommendons sans problème !

José n'était pas présent pendant notre voyage mais Vadym nous a accueilli les bras ouverts. Le tram pour rejoindre le centre de Dublin est au pied de l'immeuble et il ne faut pas plus de 10 minutes pour rejoindre le centre. Super séjour très reposant!

    Rosalie2018-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • B&B situé un peu à la périphérie de Dublin à 10 min en tram du quartier Temple bar. Chambre petite, silencieuse et propre. Le petit déjeune pourrait être plus copieux (et pas d irish breakfast).

  • Prix relativement cher pour cet appartement excentré et très bruyant: aucune insonorisation: nous entendons tous les bruits de la rue très fréquentée ainsi que ceux des voisins du dessous. De plus, aucune pièce, terrasse comprise, n'a de vue sur l'extérieur. Pour finir, personne pour nous accueillir: le code de la porte d'entrée dispense notre hôte de tout contact, même chose à notre départ. Je ne recommande pas !

    Elisabeth2018-06-16T00:00:00Z
  • Logement a 20 mn du centre de Dublin mais bien desservi par les transports en commun. Literies confortables, terrasse agréable pour les journées ensoleillées, cuisine équipée. Un peu bruyant si on ouvre les fenetres. Pensez à faire 2 courses avant d'arrivée. Merci Susan.

  • Charmant appartement dans un quartier typique de Dublin, proche d'une station de bus ( 40 & 13) et des commerces. Facilité d'accès au centre ville par le bus ou à pied. Appartement pratique et lumineux pour un séjour à Dublin avec une sympathique terrasse. Susan donne beaucoup d'explications avant le séjour avec un mot d'accueil à votre arrivée ( très appréciable).

  • Très bon séjour d'une manière générales avec un emplacement proche du centre de Dublin. Par contre, si les voisins font un peu la fête, si ils prennent leur douche (bruit de canalisation), vous les entendrez. Les murs ne semblent pas très bien isolés. La femme de ménage est très sympa et fait un très bon travail. Cela dit, vous passerez toutefois un agréable séjour.

    Located in Dublin 1, the apartment is only a short 5 minute walk to O'Connell Street, Temple Bar and Grafton street only a 15 minute walk away, the living room kitchen area is cosy and well equipped with everything you need, the bedroom is very spacious, there are numerous coffee shops , bars , restaurants and supermarkets all within 5 minutes walk, great location to discover all Dublin has to offer
    The apartment is located on the top floor of a Georgian house which makes it unique with it's high ceilings and details, it's very cosy and kept to a high standard, it's well equipped with everything you need including excellent Wi-Fi and cable tv
  • L'appartement de Kieron est placé à deux pas d'O'Connell Street, la rue principale. Le quartier est sympa, résidentiel mais ne manque pas de commerces de proximité ni de bars et restos sympa. L'intérieur est nickel (mieux encore que sur les photos !). Cependant la chambre côté rue ne bénéficie pas du silence la nuit , pensez à vos boules Quies ! Je recommande à 100% ! Kieron saura vous répondre vite et précisément si vous avez besoin. Bon séjour à tous !

    Viviane2018-04-18T00:00:00Z
  • Belle appartement au dernier étage, emplacement ok, on peut ce garer dans la rue. Arrivée ok avec clef à code etc. En revanche pas de réponse pour chek out 1h plus tard et à 11h10 on nous a dit de partir...

  • Noro est un hôte très accueillant, son appartement correspond aux descriptif. Nous étions avec nos deux enfants de 18 et 21 ans et l'appart se prête bien pour 4 personnes. L'appart est propre et situé à 15mn du temple bar et 5 mn de la storehouse guiness. Il est calme et Noro a mis à notre disposition tout pour le breakfast et produits de salle de bain. Seul inconvénient : absence de volets et donc réveil matinal avec la lumière du jour. Je recommande cet emplacement pour une famille de 4 personnes.

    jf2017-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • l'appartement est calme et bien situé, tout est accessible à pied, ce qui n'est pas négligeable pour visiter une ville. Noro s'est montré disponible alors que nous mêmes étions en avance sur l'horaire convenu. Bref, bonne expérience!

Nous avons tout fait a pieds lors de notre séjour (20-25 mn du centre ville). L'appartement est grand propre et lumineux et a 5mn du fameux Guinness Storehouse !!! Je recommande cet appartement ! Tres beau séjour !!!

    This spacious & comfortable en-suite double room has wooden floors which gives it a warm and relaxing feeling! It comfortably fits two & is located a mere 15 mins from Dublin's City Centre by bus or tram. Our apartment is close to The Guinness Storehouse, Kilmainham Gaol & Phoenix Park, the largest inner city park in Europe. We are not in the centre of the city but we are only 35 minute walk along the Grand Canal. Breakfast is served around 10am but if you would like it earlier let me know.
    The room is equipped with a double bed and is en-suite with a shower. With two built-in wardrobes and a computer desk. The room is ideal for a business trip or a visiting trip. The WiFi is very good and you will have access to it once you have checked in. Fresh towels are provided as are essentials like toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner and shower gel and a hairdryer. Breakfast is served around 10.00am but if you would like it earlier please let me know and I will leave it out for you to help yourself. The neighbourhood is small and very friendly. We are close to all amenities and live right beside the Grand Canal. We are a 7 minute walk from St James Hospital for those of you who maybe coming for study reasons. It takes 45 mins to walk to the city centre along the Grand Canal and there is also a Dublin City Bike Park 5 mins away so you could hire a bike and cycle around the city. The apartment is situated on the Red Luas line which will take you to the HQ of the famous search engine and that will take you 25 minutes and only 20 minutes to O'Connell Street. Taxi's are around 25euro from the airport to our house, but make sure the taxi goes through the city. There is also an aircoach to O'Connell street and from there you can take the Luas (Tram). Or the Airport Express to Heuston Train Station where you can take the Luas to Rialto. Make sure the Luas is going towards Tallaght or Saggart and get off at Rialto. It is a 5 minute walk to our home. There is visitor parking out the front of our building which is free of charge. We have a bus stop right outside our door which goes to the city centre. When you are taking a bus to our home, you take the No. 122 bus going to 'Drimnagh', pronounced Drimna. And you get off at Herberton Road. Ask the driver to tell you when that is. We have a Yorkshire Terrier dog who is very friendly. He never goes in to the double room and he is kept in the living space with my daughter and I. There is a private lobby area into my apartment so when you get out of the lift on the 2nd floor, number 2 in the lift. Immediately turn right and you'll see the door to my lobby. We look forward to welcoming you in to our home and hope that you have an enjoyable stay.
    What I love about my neighbourhood is the community feel and that it is small and friendly. We have the best butchers in Dublin's fair city and we are very well situated to the city centre without being too close. A mere 10 minute bus journey away is the heart of the restaurant hub of Dublin with cuisines ranging from Mexican to Japanese to good homemade burgers and french a la carte!
  • Notre séjour à Dublin c'est très bien passé. Emma est très accueillante et disponible et nous avons pu bien discuter avec elle, tout en gardant une certaine intimité. La chambre est également très agréable.

Le logement est impeccable, Emma laisse dans la chambre à votre disposition toutes les informations utiles pour votre séjour (code wifi, bus, tram, visites, etc.) Le logement se trouve à 30min à pied de la cathédrale St Patrick, le bus est à 2min et le tram à 5 min à pied. Emma reste disponible si vous avez besoin d'être conseillé. Je vous conseille fortement ce logement.

    Rialto,, Dublin, Irlande

    Next door to Guinness Brewery and a short walking distance to all major Dublin attractions. I have two rooms. One has a double bed and the other has a double bed and a single bed. It's a 4-day minimum stay and better rates for longer periods.
    The Airlink Bus from the airport takes you to High Street – just past Christchurch Cathedral – quite close to my house. Like most houses in the area, it was built about 150 years ago. So, it is a typical red-brick, 2 up 2 down house, except that I have a large garden :-) My house has been extensively renovated in 2014 but it still retains the old-world, lived-in feel.
    It is a typical inner-city Dublin atmosphere, warts and all. However, Pimlico is surprisingly quiet for it's location. Tomas Street has supermarkets, restaurants, many take-away food outlets, college of Art and Design etc. But there are also novelty shops and markets in the area that make it unique. Close by is Meath Street with all the fruit and veg, meat and fish shops you could possibly need and Francis Street is the main Antiques street in Dublin.
  • Adresse à recommander sans aucune hésitation pour l'accueil, la convivialité, la propreté, la situation très accessible à pied ou en bus des commerces et des centres d'intérêts touristiques...Eddie est un super hôte, il donne beaucoup de bonnes info et est toujours disponible pour aider ou discuter. Merci beaucoup. Rien de négatif à dire. Isabelle

    Isabelle2017-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • Le logement est très bien placé, mais prévoyez des boules quiez, la rue est un peu bruyante, car les fenêtres ne sont pas en double vitrage, la tête de lit, donne sur la rue, et si vous voulez un peu d'air dans la chambre, il faut ouvrir la fenêtre. Sinon, le petit déjeuner à disposition, surtout les fruits étaient très appréciables. Eddie m'a conseillé des balades surtout celle en train de banlieue, pour aller à la mer. Son plan de la ville était parfait. Je me sentais bien dans sa maison. Le petit jardin à côté de la cuisine m'était très agréable. Merci

    Claudine2018-06-11T00:00:00Z
  • Eddie a vraiment été accueillant et sympathique. Il nous a fait faire un tour du quartier en nous donnant des recommandations sur les endroits où manger et des informations historiques sur le quartier. Il nous a aussi fournit une map de Dublin avec de très bon conseil sur ce qui était à voir non seulement en ville, mais un peu à l'extérieur. Sa maison est magnifique et la chambre est très pratique. De plus, la localisation est très bonne. Bref, je vous le recommande fortement si vous passez par Dublin.

    Kathryn2016-06-07T00:00:00Z

  • L'accueil de Bruno et Luciana était super. Nous avons eu de nombreux conseils sur les lieux à visiter. La chambre est lumineuse et calme. Le petit bémol est le fait de partager la salle de bain avec les autres clients air bnb (une autre chambre est louée dans l'appartement).

    France2018-05-29T00:00:00Z
  • Superbe appartement, propre désigne et quelle vue :0 hospitalité unique, je recommande !

    Paul2018-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • Bruno et luciana nous offre un accueil chaleureux avec de petites attentions. L'appartement est bien situé sur les quais. Depuis leurs balcons on a une magnifique vue sur les docks. Luciana est vraiment très agréable et sympathique. Bonne adresse.

    Claire2018-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • La chambre est vraiment charmante, l emplacement est pratique à 10 min à pied de Tronity Collegue. J ai vraiment adoré la vue depuis le balcon ou on peut y boire un café en toute tranquillité avec une vue sur les rameurs débutant.

    Mathieu2017-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Bruno’s place was perfect! Loved the beautiful view from our room. It was a very quiet and peaceful area to stay and rest. Bruno was very helpful, giving us the chance to drop our bags before our check in time. The bed was very comfortable. You won’t regret staying here!

    Felipe2018-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • Bruno is a great host and that makes his place feel good immediately. The room is simple and nice and we spent some good time there!

    Jan2017-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • The hosts were great at staying in touch and helping us find our way. The apartment is very comfortable, with a great view of the water off the balcony. This area is very business-y due to being closer to (Hidden by Airbnb) headquarters and other large companies. Not the easiest place to find street parking, but the q-park across the bridge was easy enough to walk from. Definitely not in the center of Dublin, the taxi fares ranged from 8€-15€ depending on the time, but there is a bus stop directly outside the entrance which would make the commute very cheap. The walk was also not too bad just not much to see on the way.

    Dina2018-05-16T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place & friendly host. A good place for a city trip to Dublin.

    A well equipped and great value apartment in the North City. Ideal for independent travellers seeking a central location at a reasonable price. Featuring keyless, digital entry, 24/7 check in, the apartment has all you need to cook, shower & sleep comfortably, plus Cable TV & wifi. Airport bus drops off over the road at Connolly Station. Supermarkets, O’Connell St, The Spire & IFSC 10 mins walk, with Temple Bar 15-20 mins. Note: above a head shop (legal highs). Please consider before booking.
    The apartment is on the first floor with no elevator. It features a full bathroom with the benefits of electric shower, and kitchen with all you need to cook, including kettle, toaster, hob, microwave, fridge and pots, pans and trays. A double bed in the bedroom and a sofa bed make up the sleeping configuration. It's on the first floor, Cable TV & fast wifi. Plus, easy key code check in. Like all of our apartments, this has all a traveler needs to 'live like a local' and see the sights, without having to take public transport everywhere, or to hire a car.
    Due to it's location at the fringe of the city centre, this neighborhood is always popular with travellers, mainly due to its proximity to the major public transport hub of Dublin - Connolly Station - and the availability of affordable accommodation, such as the large number of hostels & bnbs. Whilst well within walking distance of most attractions, the area is generally more suited to younger travellers or people who are comfortable in diverse, city crowds, populated by people of all classes and creeds. Being so close to the major train station and many working class pubs, you may occasionally see some quite intoxicated locals, but they are just on their own journey and keep to themselves. Some guests have reported feeling a bit unsafe at night, yet to this day, we have hosted over 15000 travellers without a single report of harm ever occurring. This can be validated by reading our 2400+ reviews. You won't find a single incident.
  • L'appartement est conforme à la description, récemment rénové et très propre. L'emplacement est très bien : juste à côté de Connoly Station, pratique pour rejoindre le centre très rapidement ou pour une escapade sur la côte. Jen a été très prévenant et aimable dans nos échanges par email. La chambre est au calme côté cour. Par contre pour ceux qui dorment dans le salon côté rue, il faut savoir que c'est très bruyant, même la nuit (le point positif c'est qu'on trouve un taxi au pied de l'immeuble en 30 sec, même au milieu de la nuit). Merci encore Jen, c'était un séjour très agréable !

    Angelique2017-05-28T00:00:00Z
  • Petit endroit sympas pour quelques jours de visite à Dublin. Je recommande.

    Audrey2018-04-08T00:00:00Z
  • Jen est un hôte très réactif, il est à l’écoute pour que votre séjour se passe le mieux possible ! L’appartement est très bien situé, à quelques minutes d’O’connell street ! Il est conforme à la description et bien entretenu ! Je vous le conseille vivement !

    Emma2018-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at Jen's! She was very available to answer any of our questions and it was nice to have a bit more space than the standard hotel room and all the items needed to cook at home. We were able to walk to many restaurants and pubs and easy access to transit to the main city centre and all the sights you'd want to see while in Dublin. Check in was really easy and having the washer/ dryer halfway through our trip was a huge bonus! There was a fair bit of street noise, as to be expected in the city, but this wasn't noticable from the bedroom. Overall this was a great experience and I would definitely stay here again !

    Kristin2018-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • Good location, nice apartment

    Conor2018-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • Check-in was a breeze. This listing is located on a very busy street, so expect noise form the street and the adjoining units. Jen was great at communicating leading up to, and throughout, my stay!

    Claire2018-05-19T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at Jen’s flat. It is a central location with short walks to everything you need. Absolutely recommended for anyone looking to stay in Dublin for a reasonable fee!

    Stella2018-07-02T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment was just like in the photos. Also was really clean and well located. Near the apartment are lot of bus stops and metro station. City center are less than 10 minutes by bus. Jen was very helpful host! She sent us comprehensive guide about the house and the city. I'd recommend the apartment to anyone who want to visit Dublin! For my family it was the best choice and we hope we back soon. Big thanks for Jen once again! :)

    My one bedroom apartment is located opposite Dublin Castle, right beside the Olympia Theatre & has a great view of City Hall. You will live in the more peaceful side of Temple Bar with everything that Dublin has to offer literally on your doorstep! The St. Patrick's Day Parade passes right in front of the apartment, affording you the best views from your living room windows!
    My large one bedroom apartment is situated on the second floor with fantastic views out over the entrance to Dublin Castle, City Hall, The Royal Exchange and Dame Street below. There are two large windows in the living/dining area from where you can see the world go by below you. The St. Patrick's Day Parade even passes by on Dame Street, right below the apartment - you'll have a truly incredible view from my place!! The location could not be better - everywhere you would want to visit is within a short walk... Temple Bar, Trinity College, Christchurch, Grafton Street, St. Patrick's Cathedral, St. Stephen's Green - these all are just a few minutes' walk away :) The apartment comfortably sleeps three people. There is one bedroom with a really comfy double bed, which is located at the back of the building so it is nice and quiet for sleeping. And there is also the possibility of accommodating a third person on the sofa bed in the living room. The sofa, when converted into a bed, is a full size European double (140cm x 200cm). There is a separate bathroom with a bathtub and shower. The kitchen is fully equipped (not that you will be wanting to eat-in very often with all the great cafes and restaurants on your doorstep!) - there is an oven and hob, fridge & freezer, microwave and dishwasher. There is even a Nespresso coffee machine to get you started in the morning :-) All the essentials that you need are provided - super-fast wifi, TV with DVD player (plus a small library of movies to choose from), a washing machine with laundry powder, clothes dryer etc. There are also some board games and books to keep you entertained if it's raining outside! The price includes all bed linen and towels. If you are staying for a long period, the price will also include the regular servicing and cleaning of the apartment. There are also a couple of umbrellas, just in case the Irish weather starts to play up! Please note, there is no elevator in the building.
    Dame Street runs along the south side of Temple Bar, which is the historic and cultural centre of Dublin. At one end of the street is Trinity College and at the other is Christchurch. There really is no better place to stay if you want somewhere central as your base for exploring the city. All of Dublin's best pubs, clubs and restaurants are literally on your doorstep and it is very easy to get to and from the airport / train stations.
  • Super séjour ! Nous sommes restés seulement une nuit pour découvrir Dublin. Emplacement parfait à proximité de tout et des quartiers sympas. Chambre au calme. Appartement propre. Des explications très claires données par Jason et de bonnes adresses. Le tout envoyé à l’avance pour pouvoir préparer notre voyage. Parfait !

    Cécile2018-06-11T00:00:00Z
  • L' appartement de Jason est une belle découverte. On le dirait neuf, il est clair, très propre, bien agencé, et extrêmement bien situé pour découvrir Dublin. La chambre est située sur l'arrière de l'immeuble et les nuits y sont très calmes. On y trouve tout ce dont on a besoin lors de son séjour, et même plus avec les produis de base dans la cuisine et salle de bain. Et l'attention de Jason avec un petit chocolat sur la table de nuit. Nous n'avons pas rencontré Jason mais il a été présent et réactif tout au long de notre séjour. Nous recommandons vivement ce logement et cet hôte et espérons revenir encore à Dublin et chez Jason. Véronique et Robert

    Véronique2017-04-04T00:00:00Z
  • Jason est très prévenant et attentif. L'appartement est très bien placé et correspond au descriptif. Nous avons passé un super séjour.

    Sylvie2017-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • Super appartement idéalement situé dans Dublin sur Dame Street. À quelques mètres de temple bar. Tout se fait à pied. Jason est un super hôte très attentionné et tout est parfaitement bien expliqué. Je le recommande à 100%

    Fanny2016-12-04T00:00:00Z
  • Le quartier est fantastique ! C'est LE quartier pour sortir à Dublin. L'appartement est tout équipé, il ne manque rien. Parfait pour des voyageurs qui voudraient rester 1 semaine ou plus à Dublin. Les indications sont très précises sur le lieux de l'appartement.

    Hugo2016-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • Nous sommes partis mon compagnon et moi du 29 janvier au 2 février à Dublin. Nous aimons visiter la ville à pied et l'appartement était parfaitement situé pour cela. Le logement se situe dans une des principales artères de la ville (200m du Temple Bar, Spar juste en face, beaucoup de restaurants et cafés dans notre rue). Toutes les explications données par l'hôte étaient claires et précises, nous n'avons eu aucun soucis pour le transport aéroport/centre (nous avons pris le Airlink 747 et nous sommes arrêtés à College green) ni pour récupérer les clés une fois arrivés. l'appartement est relativement spacieux et les équipements sont nombreux (machine à laver, lave-vaisselle, fer à repasser, sèche-linge etc.). Les seuls bémols que nous avons relevés étaient que les draps n'étaient pas de première fraîcheur (tâches) et la tuyauterie est assez bruyante (sifflements pendant et après la douche). Nous entendions la circulation lorsque nous étions dans le séjour mais nous comprenons bien que nous sommes dans une ville animée et que notre situation centrale oblige quelques bruits, c'est loin d'être invivable. En résumé nous avons adoré notre séjour en Irlande et recommandons chaleureusement le logement !

    Jeanne2018-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • L'appartement est tout à fait conforme à la description, sinon...mieux ! Toutes les précisions et les conseils de Jason permettent de se familiariser très rapidement avec les lieux et l'environnement. Un renseignement, un conseil, une adresse, n'hésitez pas à lui demander, son sens de l'accueil fera le reste. Nous recommandons vivement cette adresse.

    Daniel2017-05-17T00:00:00Z

  • Un studio super, propre et très très bien placé! Assez d'espace pour 2/3 personnes! Très bon rapport qualité/prix!! Idéal pour un petit séjour d'au moins 2 jours! Petit bémol, la salle de bain n'est pas directement dans le studio! Il faut juste monter de petits escaliers, mais sinon salle de bain très propre aussi!

    KADY2017-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • C'était vraiment un bon séjour. Le fait que la salle de bain et les toilettes soient partagées n'a posé aucun problème puisqu'on y a jamais croisé nos voisins. En plus le logement se situe au centre ville, avec dans la même rue un bar ou les barmans sont vraiment adorable. Tout était très bien !

    Mélina2018-08-07T00:00:00Z

  • Appartement très très bien situé. Propre. Seul point négatif le manque d'isolation sonore par rapport à la rue. Sinon il n'y a rien à redire nous le recommendons.

    Paul2017-04-07T00:00:00Z
  • Le studio a totalement répondu à nos attentes. Il est très bien situé en centre ville de Dublin. Il est propre, cosy, confortable et équipé de tout ce que nous avions besoin. Notre hôte n'a pas pu être là à notre arrivée mais il nous avait communiqué toutes les informations dont nous avions besoin pour intégrer l'appartement. Ses explications étaient très claires et il s'est assuré que nous étions bien arrivés. Tout s'est très bien passé. C'est un logement que je recommanderai à mes amis en déplacement à Dublin.

    Magali2016-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • Situation géographique parfaite, à proximité de tous les commerces et de tous les endroits important à visiter dans Dublin (nous avons tout fait à pied). Nous avons logé 2 jours dans cet appartement. Il n'en fallait pas plus car même si la literie est bonne et le linge (de lit et serviettes) est fournit, il manque beaucoup de vaisselle dans la cuisine et il n'y a même pas les éléments de base pour cuisiner (ustensiles et condiments...).

    Sophie2018-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • Cet appartement est ultra bien situé pour tout visiter à pied à Dublin. Il est assez grand pour 3 adultes et très illuminé. La lumière dans la salle de bain ne fonctionnait pas et quelqun est venu la réparer assez rapidement. Excellent séjour! Je recommande fortement.

  • Un très bon rapport qualité-prix : une chambre qui correspond tout à fait à la photo, dans une toute petite maison que Dwaine nous a laissé le loisir d'utiliser à notre guise ... située dans un quartier à la fois très tranquille et proche du centre ville (à pied ou en bus, l'un direct pour l'aéroport). Bémol : douche minuscule avec pression et température de l'eau laissant à désirer.

    Laurence2017-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Solution de logement économique et pas trop loin du centre, propre, calme, très bien à part les sanitaires exigus. Hôte très aimable, qui nous a mis à l'aise pour que nous sentions comme chez nous et donné plein de conseils d'adresses de pubs et restos évitant les pièges à touristes. Nous le recommandons vivement.

  • Fantastic place! Location is amazing - you have everything at your doorstep. Many really nice touches included (candles made it cozy) and you have everything you need in the place . The wifi was super-fast, which I appreciated after having major problems at my previous Airbnb. I would recommend staying here to everyone knowing you won’t regret it.

    Jeffrey2018-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • Sadia and Dee's place was everything I needed for my final nights in Dublin. Amazing location, central to everything with never more than a 10 minute walk to the site-seeing hotspots. Right down the street from Trinity College and two short blocks from the popular Temple Bar district. And even though it's on busy Dame St, street noise at night was never an issue. I would recommend this place for more petite travelers as the shower and bedroom were rather small. I would definitely stay here again. Also, Forno's right below has incredible food.

    Vanessa2018-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and clean. The host is very well organised and quick to answer. Recommended

    Andrei2018-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Sadia and Dee's place is the PERFECT place to stay if you're wanting to see Dublin on foot! Everything we wanted to see was all in walking distance and we really felt like we were able to see so many great parts of the city while staying at their place. The flat was clean and beautiful, with wonderful city sights just out the window. Dee and Sadia were extremely prompt with any questions we had - they were truly wonderful hosts. Their recommendations of places to visit or where to eat let us see some places we never would have otherwise. The place was nice and cozy warm in the evenings and the bedroom was quiet and allowed for some wonderful sleep after all our adventuring. We can't say enough good things about the location, amenities, and the fantastic hosts. I'm so happy we stayed here for our first trip to Dublin - it was a great experience and we hope to be back!

  • Le studio est très bien situé, à proche distance à pied de tout. Le contact avec James s'est fait facilement et l'échange de clé a été facile, malgré qu'on n'ait pas su rencontrer se rencontrer. En ce qui concerne le studio en lui-même, le confort et la décoration sont sommaires. Quelques ampoules doivent être remplacées (salle de bain très sombre, 1 lampe sur 4 fonctionnait) et les murs et plafond auraient besoin d'un rafraichissement. Le canapé a connu de meilleurs jours, tout comme le lit. Gros point positif pour l'endroit et la proximité. Point négatif pour l'aménagement du studio.

    Gwendoline2018-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Nous avons passé 4 nuits dans le loft de James, parfaitement situé au coeur de la ville. Nous avons pu en profiter pour faire de nombreuses sorties et visites dans Dublin : Temple Bar, Trinity College, Grafton Street, Dublin Castle... tout est à moins d'un 1/4 d'heure à pied ! L'annonce précisait une chambre séparée et finalement il s'agit d'un vrai loft, c'est-à-dire une pièce unique dans laquelle on trouve une cuisine, une chambre, un salon et un coin repas. L'appartement de James est très bien décoré et a beaucoup de charme. Nous n'avons malheureusement pas rencontré notre hôte qui était absent pour son travail. Mais il a été très présent par mail même si nous aurions aimé le rencontrer.

    Anne2014-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • L'appartement de James était parfait! Idéalement situé, nous avons pu découvrir Dublin entièrement à pied. L'endroit est idéal pour deux personnes et spacieux. James s'est montré très disponible pour répondre à toutes nos questions, même une fois sur place! Je recommande vivement cet hôte et son appartement.

    Alice2016-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • L'appartement est très clair, propre et spacieux. On s'y sent bien. Il est idéalement situé pour visiter le centre de Dublin, et James est un hôte charmant et prévenant. Je recommande chaudement cette location.

  • Mon hôte a bien compris que c'était ma 1ère location chez air b'nb et a répondu, avec beaucoup de patience, par avance à toutes mes questions d'ordre pratique, tant pour l'arrivée (remise des clés) que pendant le séjour (fonctionnement des fenêtres (pas comme en France) ), que pour le départ (dépose des clés). L'apartement correspond parfaitement au descriptif , y compris visuel. Le quartier est vraiment bien placé par rapport au centre de Dublin (Temple bar.. ). Il y avait un plan de la ville à notre disposition, et tout ce qu'il faut pour la toilette, les draps .. Accès à l'appart. au sein de l'immeuble à la fois très simple et très secure

    Myriam2015-03-29T00:00:00Z

Malheureusement nous n'avons pas rencontré Sabrina, mais Célia nous a très bien accueillis, formalités d'arrivée et de départ très simples. Fabuleux séjour à Dublin, qui est une ville très jolie. On vous recommande cet appartement pour la découverte de la ville.

    Fabien2017-02-20T00:00:00Z

    Dublin, Dublin, Irlande

    My beautifully remodelled one bedroom apartment in the quieter area of Temple Bar with an unbeatable view of City Hall and Dublin Castle is now available. The best of historic Dublin.
    *DISCOUNTED RATES FOR DECEMBER 2018* My apartment is approximately 380 square feet and consists of a bright open plan kitchen/living room, bedroom and separate bathroom. There are very high ceilings and beautiful ceiling covings throughout. The whole place has recently been fitted and decorated with new contents and there is original hardwood flooring throughout (except for the kitchen and bathroom, which are tiled). The apartment is south facing so it is bright and sunny all day and there are two gorgeous, original sash windows overlooking Dublin Castle and City Hall. The cosy living room provides an excellent place to relax, plan your day of sightseeing or simply gaze out the window directly at Dublin Castle. The sofa can open flat to become a bed which can comfortably sleep one adult. There is a large HD TV and DVD player with a selection of DVDs just in case you tire of the fantastic views outside :-) There is even a Chromecast ready and waiting so you can stream all your favourite shows and movies using the super fast WiFi in my apartment. The kitchen, with its clean white lines and modern feature floor tiles is equipped with everything you might need if you want to flex your culinary muscles at home. As well as all of the pots, pans and utensils that you might need there is a kettle, toaster, microwave, electric oven, electric hob/cooker top, dishwasher, fridge, freezer box and washing machine. When you have finished cooking, reward yourself for your hard work with a complementary coffee from the Nespresso machine! The spotlessly clean bathroom has been fitted with a brand new, modern bathroom suite as well as a top of the range electric shower. The room is tiled with beautiful, ornate floor tiles and clean, fresh white wall tiles. Fluffy towels are provided :-) Last but by no means least, the bedroom is your oasis from the busy city. There is a super comfortable double bed for you to relax after a busy day. There is plenty of space for you to store your things with two beside lockers, a bright, white chest of drawers and plenty of clothes hangers. There cannot be a better way of starting your day than looking right out at City Hall from your bed.
    Locations don't get much better than this. The apartment is located in a stunningly beautiful, quieter spot of Temple Bar - a stone's throw from all the fun and merriment. Dublin Castle and City Hall are right on the doorstep of the building, waiting to greet you every morning. Within 5 minutes on foot you can stroll through Trinity College, soak up some history at Christchurch Cathedral, indulge in some retail therapy on Grafton Street or browse the lively and cosmopolitan Georgian town, full to the brim with authentic pubs, trendy cafés and exciting restaurants all side by side. Looking right out on to Dame Street, my apartment offers unbeatable views of the annual St.Patrick's Day parade as well as all of the events and celebrations that take place at Dublin Castle throughout the year. The apartment is extremely conveniently located, right in the centre of everything that Dublin's lively city centre has to offer!
  • Appartement charmant, jolie déco et propreté irréprochable. Parfaitement situé, il permet de rayonner facilement à travers la ville et de visiter la majorité des lieux touristiques à pied. Ian est un hôte très prévenant, très gentil et qui fait son possible pour faciliter le séjour. Un grand merci pour cette première expérience plus qu'agréable à Dublin!

    Anne2018-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Logement très mignon, très propre et très bien entretenu dans le centre du Dublin, en face de City Hall et à deux pas de Temple Bar. Ian nous avait envoyé les informations par email au préalable pour aller récupérer les clés. Tout s'est très bien passé. Nous avions quelques questions supplémentaires et Ian a répondu tout de suite. Ian laisse, dans l'appartement, un cahier avec tout plein de recommandations : restaurants, pubs.... Tout cela nous a été très utile ! On a essayé plusieurs des adresses recommandées et nous n'avons pas été déçus. Vraiment rien à dire sur notre séjour : tout était parfait !

    Gilles2018-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • Firstly this flat is a perfect location. It has easy access to Temple Bar and many points of interest are within easy walking distance. The flat itself is beautifully presented and has everything a guest would need for a comfortable stay (including chocolate which Ian kindly left on the bed side tables). Ian was a fantastic host who made us feel very welcome. His welcome pack had some great tips in for making the most out of Dublin and of his flat. Ian was excellent at staying in contact with us throughout the trip and quick to respond to any queries we had regarding places to visit. I would recommend Ian and this flat to anyone planning to visit Dublin! Thank you Ian :)

    Harriet2016-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • We really felt at home at Ian’s place, and this made our stay in Dublin even more enjoyable. The apartment resembled exactly what was shown and described above, everything was clean and in good shape. Especially the kitchen equipment is amazing and contains everything you may need. The location of the apartment in the very heart of Dublin is amazing! All the major attractions and points of interest are within walking distance, and several bus lines (including the Dublin airport express shuttle) stop just across the street if needed. There was no difficulty to get in touch with Ian and we received immediate replies when we had questions. Taken together, we can highly recommend a stay at Ian’s apartment when visiting Dublin!

    Marius2017-06-20T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed in Ian's place over the Christmas '16 period. I'm Irish and had lived in Dublin for a long time, so knew the city. However, I was very pleasantly surprised by Ian's great little recommendation bible, which kept me up to date with all of the new places to eat/see here. Ian was a fantastic host who was both attentive and discreet. He was there when you needed him, and out of your way when you don't. I found him very hospitable, and friendly. A total gent. The apartment is absolutely lovely, with great spec. Not every place on Airbnb looks exactly what the advert says.. I can say with hand on heart, that Ian's place does.. :-) Would recommend to anyone vacationing in Dublin. Paul Kelly

    Paul2016-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • Ian’s place is centrally located in Dublin near the Temple Bar area, close to tons of restaurants and bars and walkable to so many sites. His place is clean and has everything you’d need for your stay. Ian was extremely responsive and gave great directions so it was so easy to check-in. Definitely recommend!

    Brandon2017-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, but on a busy street so potential for noise at night, but the new windows installed do limit any noise issues. Very clean and compact apartment, but good for central stays. Very secure.

    Kevin2017-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • Ian was such a great host. With this being my first time using airbnb he has definitely set the bar high. The apartment was very clean and cosy and was so close to all of the attractions we had planned on visiting. I would definitely stay here again

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 one bedroom apartment with lovely views looking over the prestigious Dame Street A beautiful one bedroom third floor apartment with lovely views to 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 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 standard double size room and dressed with hotel linens and it is very quiet as it is situated at the back of the apartment.

We provide all the essentials you need for a relaxing trip: coffee, tea, shampoo/conditioner, shower gel, towels, linens, hairdryer, iron, ironing board & washing up liquid. In short your home away from home!!
    This 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.
  • Dee's place is really nice and well located in the very center of Dublin. You can do everything by foot from this place."Temple bar" is just minutes away but the flat is quiet. The apartment was clean and practical, ideal for a stay in couple. The flat is located in the third floor by stairs so hthink about it if you carry heavy luggage. We really loved our stay in that place and thank again Dee for her nice welcoming and advice during our stay. We will come back for sure.

    Jennifer2017-05-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely time in this flat. It was relaxing, cozy, clean, and close to all of the major sites. We could not have chosen a better place. There was minor construction going on for a downstairs renovation but it didnt bother us a bit. See was incredibly hospitable and a great host. Thank you for a great vacation!

    Kayla2017-07-03T00:00:00Z
  • Really enjoyed the apartment and what it has to offers. The place was very clean and had everything you needed. The apartment is in the most ideal part of Dublin and so close to Temple Bar. Overall would come back!

    Jill2017-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • The apt was in a great location! Everything was no more than a 20 min walk. Sadia and Dee were great hosts! All the check-in instructions are accurate, and the apartment is very cozy! If you are there for St. Patrick’s Day you can grab a coffee and watch the parade from the comfort of the apartment windows!

    Danielle2018-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • Great place. They were really accommodating with a delayed check in time due to late flights and provided plenty of info on places to eat/transportation.

    Justin2018-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed staying here while visiting Dublin. The location is directly down town with great access to everything!

    James2018-11-05T00:00:00Z
  • Castle View apartment is an excellent location! So easy and convenient to get around, and apartment is very cozy. Dee was super responsive with any questions and provided great information so we felt welcomed and prepared for our stay. Would highly recommend!

    Amy2017-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • Location, location, location! The apartment was clean and stylish. Other things to note include the apartment is located almost 70 steps up a narrow stairwell (no elevator, etc.) - which may be a barrier for those traveling with lots of luggage or older guests. The bed was quite uncomfortable and needed to be leveled (most buildings in Dublin are very old, hence furniture that is not level). We ended up switching our heads to the foot of the bed so that we didn’t feel like we were hanging upside down!

  • Nous sommes arrivés tard dans la nuit et avons pu rentrés dans le logement d'Aubrey grâce à un code. Le logement est bien équipé et très bien situé. Aubrey nous a laissé de nombreuses informations et de bonnes adresses. Le logement était conforme à la description. La place de stationnement gratuite est très utile.

  • Nous n'avons pas eu l'occasion de rencontrer Aubrey mais il était très facile de communiquer par messages pour avoir des informations. L'appartement était très correct et conforme à nos attentes, accueil sympathique avec des cookies sur la table! Les transports en commun sont proches de l'appartement, ce qui est pratique car le centre ville est à 20-30 minutes à pieds. Nous avons passé un très bon séjour!

Merci encore à Aubrey pour son accueil et toutes les informations détaillées fournies avant le séjour sur le logement et sur Dublin. Nous avons même eu la bonne surprise d'avoir droit à des chocolats de Pâques à notre arrivée. Seul bémol si vous souhaitez loger à 4 adultes, le canapé lit n'est que moyennement confortable

    Léa2017-04-10T00:00:00Z
  • Le logement se situe à 5 minutes à pied d'une ligne de Bus qui nous a emmenés dans le centre de Dublin en 10 minutes. Des commerces proches permettent de se ravitailler. L'appartement est suffisamment spacieux pour accueillir une famille de 2 adultes et 2 jeunes enfants.

  • L'appartement est super bien situé, beaucoup de transports en commun à proximité, dont la ligne de bus reliant à l'aéroport. En plein centre donc possibilité de tout faire à pied, et dans une rue assez calme sans trop de passage la nuit. La taille convient pour 2 personnes pour un court séjour, tout était propre.

    Emilie2018-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Je n'ai pas rencontré Ivana mais j'ai pu échanger avec elle par message, elle est très polie et réactive. L'appartement est très bien situé, en plein centre de Dublin, on a tout fait à pied. Par contre, l'appartement est mal isolé, il y fait froid, mais nous ne sommes pas dérangés par le bruit.

    Laura2017-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • L'appartement est assez petit mais sur quelques jours pour 2 c'est très bien Il est très central donc idéal pour tout faire à pied par contre il y a quand même pas mal de bruit dans la rue le soir mais on ne peut pas tout avoir Ivana est très sympathique même si nous ne l'avons pas vu durant notre séjour car elle a un système de remise de clés dans une boite a l'entree de l'appartement cela est un peu dommage mais elle a été très presente par message Au final son appartement est très pratique pour découvrir dublin
