Come stay in one of Dublin's unique Georgian apartments, a perfect oval room, situated on Mountjoy Square, in the heart of Dublin's North Georgian core, and just minutes from O'Connell Street. This large studio apartment is on the ground floor of a beautiful redbrick townhouse, built in 1792. Both house and apartment retain all their original features, combined with modern comforts. The apartment has a fantastic 10ft window and overlooks a quiet side street, with an oblique view of the park.

It has a comfortable contract-quality double bed, Siberian white goose down duvet and pillows and pure Pima/Egyptian cotton sheets. Read in comfort with vintage Anglepoise reading lights. PLEASE NOTE there is restricted headroom in the sleeping loft, and consequently, the bed is low.

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!
  • Prachtig oud huis!

  • Marvelous! Ik vond het geweldig.

  • Ik was gecharmeerd van de mooie Georgische flat van Karin toen ik de foto's online zag en het echte werk overtrof zeker mijn verwachtingen! Zij is de volleerde gastheer die aan alles heeft gedacht. Een gevulde keuken, een badkamer gevuld met toiletartikelen, prachtige boeken en dvd's, een open haard (we hebben er geen gebruik van gemaakt), enorm veel gidsen en kaarten naast haar eigen uitstekende suggesties ... Ik zou door kunnen gaan. De straat was 's nachts volkomen stil en een korte wandeling van 15 minuten naar de rivier de Liffey. Karin zelf begroette ons hartelijk. Ik kan me geen betere Air BNB-ervaring voorstellen en ik kan niet wachten om naar Dublin te gaan en weer bij Karin te blijven!

  • Dit is een charmant huis in een groot deel van Dublin. Zo gemakkelijk om de stad te bereiken in de overvloedige taxi's. Het was zo leuk om thuis te komen in dit charmante appartement na een volledige dag bezichtigen!

  • Je kunt een fijne Georgische kamer verwachten, die slim is aangepast om badkamer en keuken te bevatten zonder deze te beschadigen. Uw gastvrouw is vriendelijk en zeer goed geïnformeerd. Je bevindt je in het hart van Dublin, ideaal gelegen om de stad te verkennen.

    Nicholas2019-05-15T00:00:00Z
  • Wat een speciale plek om te verblijven. We hielden van het Georgische huis met zijn originele kenmerken en geweldige locatie. Genoten ook van het voedsel dat voor ontbijt werd verlaten. We hebben een heerlijk weekend gehad in Dublin. George!

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

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

SHORT TRIPS OUTSIDE THE CITY BY PUBLIC TRANSPORT NORTH: Catch the No.46A bus, (heading north on O'Connell Street to the Phoenix Park- the largest enclosed urban park in the world, 1750 acres behind a seven-mile-long stone wall. Ashtown Castle Interpretive Centre, with its wonderful walled garden and café is a good place to orient oneself. From here, on Saturdays, it is possible to visit Aras an Uachtarian, the official residence of our President. One can also visit Farmliegh, the Official State Guesthouse, a former Guinness mansion. Among it’s attractions are an art gallery, café, occasional free concerts, and regular weekend Farmer’s Markets. The Park also houses the Dublin Zoo, (1827, the second-oldest Zoo in the world, after London’s Regent Park Zoo). Several herd of Fallow Deer roam at liberty. Many sports are catered for; there is Polo ground, a cricket club, and lots soccer pitches. The Duke of Wellington is commemorated by a marvelous granite obelisk, which can be seen for miles. The area know as the Forty Acres affords superb views over the city, with the Royal Hospital and Guinness in the foreground, along the south side of the River Liffey. Phoenix Park can also be reached via the LUAS Red Line, direction Tallagh, heading west. Alight at 'Museum' and take a detour into the National Museum-Collins Barracks, which houses the Decorative Arts, post-1700, wonderful collections of silver, furniture, glass and other artifacts. Just up the road, in Glasnevin there are three worthwhile attractions: Glasnevin Cemetary, was founded by Daniel O’Connell as one of his first initiatives, post Catholic Emancipation in 1829, to provide a dignified place for Catholic burial. The Glasnevin Musuem is new, and has superlative displays of Nationalist history. They also have a very good Geneology Department. The National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin, date from the end of 18thC. Though relatively small, they contain an internationally-aclaimed collection of plants and three iconic Glasshouses, by Turner of Dublin, which have all been restored in the recent past. There is a nice café in the Gardens, and entry is free. The Gravedigger’s Pub, over-looking a Green, is not to be missed. It got its name from the fact that there used to be a hatch in the rear wall, through which the gravediggers were served. They do nice simple pub food, and one can sit outside on sunny days. Walk back into town, and stop at either the The Botanic Bar at Harte’s Corner or the Brian Borus, typicl local bars. The Porter House, at Cross Guns Bridge, which is a micro-brewery, with nice food, is on the corner of the Royal Canal. Take a stroll east down the canal bank, and you will see swans, and moor-hens going about their business. At the next bridge, at Dorset Street look out for the lifesize bronze statue of Brendan Behan, a local author. From here is just a few minute’s stroll up Belvidere Place, with its charming stepped terraces of tall Georgian houses, to Mountjoy Square. Another favorite is the Marino Casino, in Fairview/Clontarf, an early 18th century pleasure house, built to the design of Sir William Chambers, for Lord Charlemont, purely for entertaining, also just a few miles by bus, north of the city centre. Catch the DART, the coastal commuter train, heading north, at Tara Street Station, on the South Liffey quays, at Butt Bridge, and take a short ride. You have the choice of Howth (a working fishing village) or Malahide. Howth Demesne or Howth Head, behind the village will both afford walks with great views; the Harbour has a dozen restaurants along the quay- ranging from take-out fish and chips to the very upmarket. Book an early-evening window table at Aqua, and be astonished by the sunset over the coast, looking north-west. Another favourite of mine is Deep, midway along the quay (and do watch out for the local tame and greedy Harbour Seal, who begs shamelessly from the trawler men, who tie up alongside). Malahide is a charming village, with some of the most expensive urban residential properties in the country. Good food and good shopping are to be had here. On the edge of the village you will find Malahide Castle and Demesne, open to the public, which includes a renowned private Arboretum, as Milo de Malahide, the last of his family, (who had occupied the castle continuously since Norman times, in the 10th-12th centuries) was a significant plants-man. The Castle contains the National Portrait Collection, as was as magnificent furniture and other contents. There is a smart new branch of the AVOCA Shop and Café in the Courtyard. SOUTH: South of the city you will find Rathfarnham Castle, and its Berkeley Costume and Toy Collection. Marley Park is a little further, just at the foot of the Dublin Mountains. It has wonderful parkland with easy walks, and a magnificent walled garden with a nice cafe. The No.16 bus, from O’Connell Street will leave you close by. Powerscourt is at the edge of Enniskerry, its associated estate village, at the end of the No.44 bus route, which winds its way through the south side suburbs, into Wicklow, through the Scalp, a deep and picturesque glacial valley. The 19th century gardens are fabulous, and make great use of the 'borrowed landscape' beyond. The terrace and Nepture fountain are centred on the Sugarloaf mountain, which marks the beginning of the Wicklow Mountains. The Powerscourt Waterfall, part of the same estate, is a few miles further on, and there are beautiful, way-marked, woodland and moorland walks in the hills nearby. Do be mindful; these ‘mountains’ can be deceptive- while not high, they can be treacherous, as weather conditions can change in minutes. Stick to the way-marked paths, and do keep an eye on the weather. Take the DART south to Bray and Greystones - via Dun Loughaire, Dalkey and Killiney - all interesting villages, with many cafes and restaurants. Killiney Hill, with its eighteenth century obelisk at the summit, is a short climb that results in amazing views over Dublin Bay, and down into the Wicklow Mountains beyond. There is a nice pub in in the ‘village’- ‘The Druid’s Chair’. Dalkey is a charming village with old-fashioned shops and lots of nice pubs, cafes and restaurants. The local Dalkey Castle Heritage Centre, is worth checking out, and in the summer run a theatre programme, and walking tours. Bray Esplanade is a classic Victorian seaside amenity, sturdily built from local granite - the perfect place to enjoy an ice-cream. Campo di Fiori, either the Restaurant or the Café, both near the train station and the north end of the Promenade, are particular favourites of mine. If one is feeling energetic, one could contemplate the Cliff Walk from Bray to Greystones - 4miles/6km along the rough cliff path. Lots of nice pubs for a pint of Guinness at the other end, The Hungry Pear is my favourite café, among many. The DART will take you straight back into the city. But.. make sure to do it in the morning, as by mid-day the path is in shade, and it can be windy and cold. WEST: Travelling into the rich plains of Kildare, by the No. 67 bus route, you will come to the historic village of Celbridge, just twelve miles from the city centre. Castletown House is Ireland's finest Palladian mansion, and was saved from destruction by Desmond Guinness, in the early 1960's. He purchased it from the construction company who had acquired it. They intended to demolish it, to make way for a vast suburban housing estate. The Irish Georgian Society, founded by Desmond Guinness, restored the house and furnished it with the help of many volunteers and sponsors, and opened it to the public, a heroic task for a small membership conservation society. Today, it is in State ownership, and it is the flagship Georgian heritage property of Ireland. It is beautifully presented, and the parklands are undergoing restoration. A local bus, or the commuter train from Connolly Station in Amiens Street, will take one to Maynooth, a charming University town, with another magnificent Palladian mansion, Carton House, now operating as a very upmarket hotel and golf club. Lots of companies offer day-long coach tours. Some involve very long days, i.e, Cliffs of Moher in Clare and the Giant’s Causeway on the Antrim coast. Two more local, and very worthwhile ones are either: The Boyne Valley Tour (Newgrange Neolithic ( 5000 yr old World Heritage Site) / Mellifont Cistercian ruins- (12thC.)/ Monasterboice Early Christian (6th-8thC.) The Wicklow-Glendalough Tour (Powerscourt / Wicklow Mountains National Park and Glendalough (Glen of the Two Lakes) a 6thC. Early Christian site, in beautiful wooded valley. Details of both of these trips, and others, are available in the big black folder in the apartment.
    A beautiful, historic residential square, built in 1790's, within 5-10 minutes walk of down-town city centre. Elegance and convenience combined with a bit of inner city grittiness. I have loved it all, since 1978! Mountjoy Square is situated just NE of the historic city centre, within walking distance of just about all the main city attractions. It is the most densely populated area in the entire city: 1500 people have front doors opening onto the Square. The house fronts onto a 4acre/1.5ha park, across a fairly busy street. This apartment faces the side street, so it is quieter, but you will still hear traffic.....Please bear in mind that this is NOT LEAFY SUBURBIA, but a vibrant, living city community and it's definitely gritty in places... Having said that, I have lived here, uneventfully, for nearly 38 years, and consider the trade-offs well worth it, for the excitement and convenience of having the city on my doorstep..
  • Zoek niet verder!!! Karin's appartement heeft alles wat je ooit zou willen en MEER! Bij binnenkomst voel je je thuis na een lange reis. Gastvrij, charmant en absoluut verrukkelijk, het was eerlijk gezegd moeilijk om de stad te verkennen, want het enige dat ik wilde doen was hier blijven en ontspannen voor het vuur. Karin had eieren, boter, mangosap, jam, vers fruit, thee en koffie in de keuken staan klaar voor het ontbijt en een mand vol hout om vuur te maken. De locatie was perfect. Het was nog steeds in het stadscentrum, maar lag op een rustig blok verwijderd van het lawaai. Ik heb nooit een taxi genomen en geprofiteerd van de fantastische locatie van het appartement, die over Dublin 1 en 2 liep. Karin had ook een lange lijst met aanbevelingen en suggesties op het gebied van lokale restaurants, supermarkten en belangen in de buurt, wat erg behulpzaam was. Ik kan dit appartement niet meer aanbevelen en kijk ernaar uit om dit opnieuw te huren tijdens mijn volgende reis naar Dublin!

  • Een echt pareltje! Op een comfortabele afstand van het centrum van Dublin is dit 1840 juweeltje van een gebouw, met een uitstekend appartement. Alles was perfect, van de aandacht van de gastheer tot in elk detail, tot de open haard en het ongelooflijke hoogslaper.

    Dirk2019-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • Een mooie gezellige ruimte. Karin is een zeer vriendelijke en behulpzame gastheer! :)

    Chrissy2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • Geweldige plek om te verblijven! Karin heeft aan alles gedacht en extra moeite gedaan om een bed and breakfast-gevoel te bieden. Sterk aanbevelen!

    Kayla2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Ik kan deze plek niet genoeg aanbevelen. Het appartement zelf is mooi, heeft alles wat u nodig heeft en nog veel meer. Het voelt echt als een thuis weg van huis! Karin was een geweldige gastheer, stuurde heel gedetailleerde incheckinstructies, liet me mijn tas achter bij de accommodatie voor en na mijn verblijf en liet veel eten achter in de keuken voor toen ik aankwam! Het appartement ligt op niet meer dan 25 minuten lopen van alle plaatsen die u misschien wilt zien - dus het is geweldig voor mensen die graag te voet verkennen. Het is ook dicht bij veel bus- en tramhaltes als u niet veel kunt wandelen. Een geweldige ervaring!

    Alexandra2019-12-04T00:00:00Z
  • Locatie is perfect, je kunt bijna overal naartoe lopen. Je hebt een volledige toegang tot de plek, zodat je kunt komen en gaan wanneer je wilt.

    Thomas2019-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • Karin's huis was geweldig. Een foto zegt meer dan duizend woorden, maar de foto's doen haar prachtige plek geen recht. De flat was huiselijk, maar heel elegant. Haar aandacht voor de kleinste details was verbazingwekkend. Ze had zelfs een universele laadconvertor beschikbaar die op de mantel stond te wachten. Alles was aanwezig voor ons eerste ontbijt, wat het winkelen teniet deed. Ze deed zelfs een last-minute lading was, zodat we onze reis konden vervolgen met schone kleren. Het huis was centraal gelegen, dicht bij alles en de buurt voelde heel veilig. Mijn enige spijt was dat ons verblijf in Dublin zo kort was dat we niet genoeg tijd konden doorbrengen met genieten van dit heerlijke thuis weg van huis. Toch geeft het ons gewoon een ander excuus om terug te keren naar Dublin!

    Cheryl2019-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • Karin's appartement is een kans om te verblijven in een historische ruimte in Dublin. De keuken is gemoderniseerd en beschikt over alle voorzieningen die u nodig heeft. Het is op loopafstand van het station Connolly, waar verschillende grote supermarkten zijn en op slechts een paar minuten van de halte Parnell LUAS.

  • Fantastische plek. Goede locatie. Gemakkelijke communicatie. We hielden van het verblijf. En zou zeker weer verblijven wanneer ik in Dublin ben!

    Dimiana2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • Liam's plaats ligt op een perfecte locatie en erg leuk. Het was helemaal stil, hoewel er veel winkels en cafés in de buurt zijn. Was een ideale plek om onszelf te wortelen terwijl we de stad verkenden met onze twee kleine kinderen. Iedereen sliep geweldig, de keuken was mooi en vol met basics, inclusief koffie en thee, en we voelden ons echt veilig. Ik kon me geen betere plek in de stad voorstellen, vooral niet voor deze prijs.

    Elisabeth2019-12-13T00:00:00Z
  • De plaats van Liam is erg gezellig en schoon. En Liam antwoordde ons op tijd en was zeer behulpzaam :)) We hebben genoten van ons verblijf daar. De welkomst-e-mail die Liam naar mij stuurde, was erg nuttig en leidde me duidelijk naar de toegang tot de flat, wat voor soort toeristen in de buurt of in de stad ... enz. Bedankt voor het ontvangen van ons.

  • Het was een geweldige bnb-ervaring! Het ruime appartement van Liam is mooi en netjes. De hele machine in het huis werkte goed en het huis was altijd warm. Handdoeken en beddengoed was schoon en mooi. De locatie ligt dicht bij de rivier en de bushalte. Maar we kunnen ook te voet naar het centrum lopen. Ik zal dit appartement aanbevelen aan al mijn vrienden die Dublin zullen bezoeken.

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

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

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

    Thomas2019-07-13T00:00:00Z
  • We hebben een prima verblijf gehad! De locatie was geweldig voor ons, op slechts een paar minuten lopen van O'Connell Street en de Spire, en een heel gemakkelijke wandeling naar de rivier. Geweldige toegang tot Noord-Dublin sites. Veel restaurants en pubs in de buurt, en uitzicht op Mountjoy Square Park aan de overkant van de straat! Binnen is het huis absoluut prachtig, een goed onderhouden Georgiaans herenhuis, met verbazingwekkende details die doorgaan in het appartement zelf. Leuke privéruimte, fantastisch werkende open haard, gigantische ramen en slechts een heleboel historische kenmerken. Gezellig bed op de zolder. Geweldige keuken, met mooie doordachte details, waaronder yoghurt, fruit, koffie en meer. Check-in was eenvoudig en zeer zelfvoorzienend, en we waren in staat om onze tassen vroeg of laat te verlaten als dat nodig was; zou zeker weer verblijven! Wat een geweldige kans om Georgian Dublin te ervaren!

    Sean2019-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • Kwam naar Dublin voor een concert in Croke Park. Dit appartement is letterlijk om de hoek, goedkoper dan een hotel met veel betere faciliteiten en extra's. Zou hier zeker weer verblijven!

    Aaren2019-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • We hielden van Karin's place! Het uitzicht is geweldig en de inrichting heeft onze ervaring verbeterd. Ze had zorgvuldig adapters in elke plug-in, vers fruit en kookbenodigdheden. Wou dat we hadden gepland om te blijven langer dan 2 dagen. De locatie was gemakkelijk beloopbaar en openbaar vervoer rondom. We zouden deze plek zeker aanraden. Doug en Kelly, Canada

    Kelly2019-05-28T00:00:00Z
  • Echt een van de mooiste plaatsen waar ik ooit heb verbleven. Enorme ramen van vloer tot plafond - Karin had verse eieren, melk, koffie, thee, fruit en yoghurt enz. Voor ons achtergelaten - dus ik zat bij het raam na het inchecken en gewoon relaxed en keek de wereld voorbij met een enorme pot koffie. Karin had een boekje met veel goede tips over waar te gaan voor eten, drinken, winkelen, enz. Wat geweldig voor me was, want ik ben niet al te bekend met Dublin. Ik ga altijd naar dezelfde overbevolken toeristenvallen, dus het was geweldig om haar lokale kennis te hebben. Een van mijn favoriete reizen ooit weg

    Sarah2019-05-26T00:00:00Z
  • Deze flat is een prachtige, historische plek om 'thuis' te bellen terwijl je in Dublin bent. Karin is een attente, responsieve gastheer die geweldige informatie en lokale tips biedt. De flat zelf is warm en uitnodigend. De keuken en badkamer hebben alles wat je nodig hebt om comfortabel te zijn. De locatie is geweldig - dichtbij genoeg voor het nachtleven of toeristische plezier, maar net buiten die gebaande paden, zodat u elke dag Dublin kunt ervaren. We zouden graag weer hier verblijven en moedig je aan!

    Deidre2019-05-22T00:00:00Z
  • Karin was gemakkelijk om mee te communiceren en reageerde snel. Ze had gedetailleerde instructies nagelaten over alles in het appartement en veel nuttige informatie over de buurt. Haar appartement was erg mooi en we hadden een goed verblijf.

    Jaya2019-05-20T00:00:00Z
  • Prachtig ingericht, ruim appartement met uitzicht op het park en de wijk. We houden van wandelen en vonden het heel gemakkelijk om overal te geraken. Karin is een zeer behulpzame gastheer en ik zou het ten zeerste aanbevelen om hier te verblijven.

    Dublin, County Dublin, Ierland

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

Dublin two main pedestrian shopping streets, Grafton and Henry St are about 5 minutes away. Trinity College with its famous Library is 3 minutes walk. Dublin is experiencing a Renaissance after a long recession and every week a new exciting restaurant, cultural space or play is opening. It is a great time to be visiting!
  • Dardo communiceerde heel goed en was echt meegaand met ons. We landden vrij vroeg in Dublin en we konden onze tassen meteen afzetten, wat ons tijd gaf om te verkennen. Het appartement ligt op een perfecte locatie en is zeer schoon en netjes. We voelden ons echt veilig en de toegang tot en beveiliging van het gebouw was erg goed. Het appartement was zeer ruim en we voelden ons daar zeer comfortabel.

  • Een fantastische plek! Locatie was ongelooflijk, net als de uitzichten. Hield ervan de deur uit te lopen en in het hart van alle dingen te zijn die we wilden doen. Dardo was geweldig, de plaats was geweldig ... een zeer goede ervaring en ik hoop dat ik de kans krijg om daar weer te verblijven.

    Jack2020-01-26T00:00:00Z

    Louise2020-01-21T00:00:00Z

  • VERBAZINGWEKKEND!! Dit was onze favoriete lucht bnb van de reis. Het is niet alleen absoluut mooi, maar de locatie !! De gastheren waren zo behulpzaam en meegaand. We zullen 100% terugkomen in het appartement van Dublin en Dardo !!

    Madison2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Dit is zo'n perfecte locatie! Je kunt naar alles lopen wat je in Dublin wilde doen. Het appartement was stijlvol en schoon en Dardo zorgde voor een zeer gemakkelijke en volledige routebeschrijving vanaf de luchthaven.

  • Levendige moderne flat!, Op de perfecte locatie! Perfect voor de paar dagen dat we verbleven! Gemakkelijke toegang en Liam was een geweldige gastheer!

  • Liam's plek ligt op een geweldige locatie. Alles in Dublin was beloopbaar en er is een geweldig café in het volgende gebouw waar we elke dag naartoe gingen voor het ontbijt (Third Space - sterk aanbevolen!) Er is ook een echt goede koffieplek aan de overkant van de straat, dus je hebt echt alles wat je nodig zou kunnen hebben dichtbij . Liam was gemakkelijk om mee te communiceren en hielp ons met het vinden van een plek om onze koffers in te checken voordat we bij hem konden inchecken. Er is wat constructie aan de overkant van de straat die vrij vroeg in de ochtend op weekdagen begint, maar daar kan niet veel aan worden gedaan. Het hielp ons gewoon uit bed te komen en aan de slag te gaan omdat er zoveel te doen en te zien is!

  • Zeer mooi gebouw, een zeer mooie trap! Ook was onze kamer erg leuk - we hadden een kamer die aan de straatkant was gelegen - dus het was niet stil 's nachts maar we konden heel goed slapen! Karin was hier niet tijdens onze check-in, maar vanwege de exacte beschrijving hebben we onze weg gevonden. Ik wil ook vermelden dat de openbare verbinding met de luchthaven erg goed is - bijna elke bus is op loopafstand. Ook is de weg naar het centrum van Dublin slechts een paar minuten lopen. Dus we waren zeer tevreden en genoten erg van ons verblijf!

    Alex2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Geweldige plek, zeer centraal gelegen. Karin is een heel lieve gastheer en de plaats is een geweldige thuisbasis voor het verkennen van de stad.

    Emiliano2019-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • Geweldige plek om te verblijven in Dublin! Het appartement was onberispelijk en mooi! Locatie was geweldig en op loopafstand van alle belangrijke bezienswaardigheden. Karen is een geweldige gastheer. Ze gaven me zoveel geweldige reistips en zorgden ervoor dat ik me zo welkom voelde! Zou zeker aanraden om meer te reizen naar Dublin!

    Fausta2019-05-28T00:00:00Z
  • We genoten erg van ons verblijf bij Karin. Het huis is absoluut mooi en het appartement is uitgerust met alles wat je nodig hebt: volledig uitgeruste keuken, wasmachine, badkamer, etc. etc. Karin's huis ligt op 10 minuten afstand van het centrum. Het inchecken en de communicatie waren perfect. Op onze volgende reis naar Dublin zullen we zeker weer verblijven in Karin. Absoluut een aanrader!

    Marcus2019-05-25T00:00:00Z
  • Blijf hier. Het is een geweldig gebouw en alle units van Karin zijn charmant en smaakvol ingericht. Je hebt alles wat je nodig hebt in een prachtig deel van de stad dat dicht bij het centrum van Dublin ligt, maar voldoende uit de buurt om de drukte te vermijden. Ik liep de eenheid binnen en voelde me meteen thuis en had mezelf echt daar kunnen zien wonen. Je zult blij zijn.

    Julie2019-05-17T00:00:00Z
  • Karins place is de perfecte locatie voor een verblijf in het hart van Dublin, een prachtig oud gebouw met mooie details van styling en details. Wat we verwachten van een stad op de leeftijd van Dublin 5/5.

    Matthew2019-05-15T00:00:00Z
  • Het was mijn moeder en ik was de eerste keer in Ierland en ons verblijf in het mooie huis van Karin was precies waar ik op hoopte en meer! De locatie was geweldig! Vlak naast een park dat we vanuit onze kamer konden zien en het was op loopafstand om de hele stad te bereiken. Zelf inchecken was leuk en zorgde ervoor dat ik me comfortabel voelde om in en uit te stappen. Ze begroette ons bij aankomst en voorzag ons van een kaart van Dublin en eigenlijk kaartte alle wandelroutes voor ons uit naar alle plaatsen die we wilden gaan. Ze gaf ons ook wat te eten voor ons verblijf, dat was erg leuk. Ik was gewoon verliefd op het karakter en de geschiedenis van haar huis. Bloemen en planten overal! Ik zal er zeker weer verblijven om daar weer te verblijven als ik ooit terug ben in Dublin.

    Shistine2019-05-11T00:00:00Z

  • Clare is een verbazingwekkende gastheer! Ze gaf me vóór mijn aankomst voldoende informatie en duidelijke instructies om aan te komen. Ze is aardig, vriendelijk en bereidt een geweldig ontbijt voor! Het huis is onberispelijk schoon en volledig ingericht! Vijf sterren zijn duidelijk niet genoeg!

    Lorenzo2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • Clare is een geweldig persoon. Ze is attent en zorgt ervoor dat ons verblijf zo aangenaam mogelijk is. Ze is zelfs gekomen om ons met de auto naar een geweldige plek te brengen, zodat we niet hoeven te wachten op het openbaar vervoer! Ik raad het aan!

    Amélie2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • Clare is een geweldige gastheer! Communicatie werkt prima. Haar huis ligt in een rustige straat, dus geen verkeer buiten. De kamer evenals het huis was schoon en netjes. Ik zal terug komen :-)

    Thorbjorn2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • Clare is een geweldige gastheer, ik waardeerde hier gastvrijheid en ondersteuning - kan de plek alleen maar aanbevelen - heel rustig en toch kun je het stadscentrum op tijd bereiken! Bedankt - maakte mijn verblijf

    Rita2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Mijn verblijf bij Clare was absoluut geweldig. Ze was zo ongelooflijk gastvrij en vriendelijk. Ze behandelde mezelf en al haar gasten als familie! Haar gastvrijheid was geweldig en ik hield gewoon van de hele ervaring. Ik zou de plek van Clare zeker aanraden aan iedereen die naar Ierland reist. Het is vooral geweldig voor individuele reizigers omdat je andere geweldige gasten zult ontmoeten.

    Katie2019-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • De tijd bij Clare was erg goed! Clare is een aardige persoon en is altijd vriendelijk en behulpzaam voor ons geweest. Ze doet haar uiterste best om haar gasten zich op hun gemak te laten voelen. De kamer was erg goed, ook het ontbijt. We zouden op elk moment teruggaan naar Clare en zouden deze airbnb ten zeerste aanbevelen. We wensen Clare het allerbeste! Veel dank!

    Beate2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • Het huis van Clare is zo'n heerlijke rustige, schone en comfortabele ruimte in een zeer mooie buurt. Het ligt dicht bij alle openbaar vervoer, ATM, supermarkten, kustlijn en nog veel meer. Haar gastvrijheid overtreft alle verwachtingen op zo'n positieve manier. Onmiddellijk na het boeken, gaf ze een e-mail met alles wat ik moest weten om overal te geraken, dus ik wist dat het verblijf gezond zou zijn. Ze ontvangt tegelijkertijd andere gasten, dus oordoppen zijn goed als je net als ik bent en traag aanpassen aan tijdzoneverschillen. Ik zal absoluut weer bij haar blijven bij toekomstige bezoeken. De douche in mijn kamer hebben was een heel prettig gemak, en al haar kamers zijn mooi. Haar huis heeft zoveel charme en positieve, respectvolle en veilige energie.

    Sukjin2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Ik verbleef 3 nachten bij Frances en ik kan zeggen dat het als thuis voelde. Frances en haar man zijn zeer positieve en aardige mensen, ze waren bereid om te helpen met advies over hoe je ergens in Dublin kon komen. Ik raad Frances zeker aan als gastheer!

    Alina2019-12-30T00:00:00Z

  • Frances is aardig en zorgzaam - ik zou de plek alleen voor haar aanbevelen! Bovendien is het huis erg schoon, het bed comfortabel en de douche warm! Het heeft alle voorzieningen die u nodig heeft, is een mooie wandeling van tien minuten naar het pijltje in een rustige buurt en voelt gewoon gastvrij en comfortabel aan! Ik zal zeker terugkomen!

    L.2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • Wat u kunt verwachten, gaat verder dan het gemiddelde AirBnB-verblijf! Frances is een van de meest gracieuze en vriendelijke gastheren en de accommodaties zijn precies zoals gepost. Ik bleef 5 dagen, had gewoon een plek nodig om te slapen en te ontspannen tussen de avonturen en het was precies dat, een thuis weg van huis. Zal Frances in de toekomst opnieuw bezoeken.

    Rachel (Shelly)2019-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • Deze plek is een echte aanrader, Frances is een erg aardige en behulpzame persoon en de kamer is gezellig en schoon. De locatie ligt op 10 minuten van het treinstation en het is ongeveer een half uur van het centrum. Er zijn enkele restaurants, winkels en een park niet ver.

    Ксения2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • Frances is een aardige gastheer en alles werkte prima tijdens het verblijf. Haar huis ligt in een woonwijk, maar is gemakkelijk te bereiken vanuit het centrum van Dublin. Als u op zoek bent naar een rustige omgeving, is dit een uitstekende keuze.

  • Clare was absoluut een van de beste gastheren die ik in al mijn Airbnb-verblijven ben tegengekomen. Ik voelde me welkom om bij haar thuis te zijn en ze paste gracieus mijn gekke schema aan. Het was geweldig om elke nacht weg te zijn van de gekte van het stadscentrum en een vredige rust te hebben in haar rustige buurt. Ik raad niet alleen aan om bij haar te blijven, maar dit is waar ik zal verblijven de volgende keer dat ik naar Dublin ga.

    Sujie2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • Clare is een heel aardige dame. Ze bood me zelfs een kleine rit naar de bushalte aan. Het huis ligt in een rustige omgeving dicht bij het park en de zeezijde. Het uitzicht op de zee is adembenemend. De locatie van het huis ligt ook dicht bij de bushalte, erg handig!

    Clontarf, Dublin, Ierland

    Valentia House, in the suburb of Clontarf, 3k from the city centre, close to the seafront, with a regular bus service every 15 mins to the centre of Dublin. There is a wealth of restaurants nearby, a beautiful park with our award-winning Rose Garden, pubs, a supermarket, churches and the Old Wooden Bridge leading to the beach. Eastpoint Business Park is 3k away. A taxi from the airport takes about 30 mins, for about €25. There is an excellent bus service from the airport to the city centre.
    Our spacious ensuite bedrooms have king sized double beds. They come with complimentary tea/coffee and bottled water. Wifi is free and reliable. Bedrooms have tv's. Downstairs guests have access to a small, private sitting room, also with tv. Fancy a read? Here we also have our 'drop or swap'! Just finished a book and fancy another, or maybe just forgot to bring one along, we might just have something to interest you. We offer off-street parking.
    Nestled by the sea, this cute, intimate suburb, steeped in history from the time of King Brian Boru, has a wealth of award-winning restaurants, a beautiful park with a Rose Garden and restaurant with outdoor courtyard, along with a weekly organic food market. Here there are many paths to explore. Down the centre of the park is a long avenue, known to locals as 'The Mile' and this is extremely popular with walkers and joggers alike. For those who love the sea air, there is The Old Wooden Bridge leading down to the beach, where one can enjoy watching the early sunrise in the morning, a refreshing leisurely walk in the afternoon, or the beautiful sunset in the evening. There is always a perfect time to take this stroll. The suburb of Howth is located about 8k north of Clontarf, out along the coast. This is a beautiful fishing village with two delightful piers to enjoy a stroll. If you are lucky you might even catch a glimpse of the seals swimming in the harbour. A portion of fish and chips from the famous Beshoff's is always recommended. A walk over Howth Head is a must, with the most stunning views imaginable, out over the Bay and over to the south of the city.

De ontbijten waren een geweldige touch - in feite ga ik beginnen met het verstrekken van ontbijt in mijn AirBnB. Jackie is ook super aardig en meegaand. Bedankt voor alles!

    Spacious self contained studio in a quiet neighborhood only 15minutes from the airport, direct bus routes to the city centre only 40minutes away and a 5minute walk from local supermarket.
    Bright and airy studio with WIFI, own private entrance to studio at side of main house, situated in a cul de sac this area is very safe!
    Our neighborhood has the best of both worlds it is away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre but near enough too it for when you want to explore, dine or socialise. There is direct bus routes straight into the city centre right outside our estate. Only ten minutes up the road is the lovely Malahide village which has wonderful restaurants to choose from. We also have Howth close by a beautiful village by the sea with loads to see and do there...you can get to Howth by the dart which is a 20minute walk away.
  • Perfect. Waar voor je geld erg goed. Het ligt heel dicht bij de luchthaven en er is een bus van het Hilton hotel die je voor € 3 brengt, dus je kunt een excursie naar Belfast maken door de bussen vanaf de luchthaven te nemen en je bespaart veel tijd. Het is ook een beetje ver van het centrum een beetje ver van het centrum, maar er is een bus om de 10 'en in 30' het laat je in het centrum. Bovendien hebben de bussen twee hoogtes en als je op de voorste rij staat, heb je een panoramisch uitzicht dat je niet lang maakt.

    Ignacio2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Bedankt voor uw advies, ons ruimte geven en de echt doordachte aanraking van het uitbrengen van een extra verwarming terwijl de radiator wordt vervangen. Uw woning bevindt zich op een heel mooi landgoed dat niet ver naar het drukke, drukke centrum van de stad pendelt. We kunnen je niet genoeg bedanken. Zodra we onze kop rond de busdienst hadden (een kleine tip hebben exacte verandering accepteren ze geen aantekeningen op de bus). Alles was gewoon gemakkelijk. De studio is perfect voor een weekendbezoeker aan de prachtige stad. Het check-in proces is heel eenvoudig en werkt goed voor alle partijen. Communiceren met Ciara was een briljante eenvoudige WhatsApp en een echt snelle reactie. We zullen zeker terugkomen wanneer Ierland bezoekt. Nogmaals bedankt :)

    DanylJoe2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Ciara was een zeer vriendelijke en zorgzame gastheer. De accommodatie heeft een aparte ingang, wat leuk is, maar het is klein en niet zo modern meer. Vooral de badkamer zou een opknapbeurt nodig hebben. Het duurt ongeveer 40 minuten met de bus naar het centrum van Dublin. Er zijn supermarkten in de buurt die geweldig was. De luchthaven ligt op 10 minuten rijden met de auto, of u neemt de bus-shuttle voor 5 € en bereikt deze in ongeveer 15 minuten. Al met al was alles goed.

    Sina2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Perfecte plek om te verblijven met gemakkelijke toegang tot Dublin in de bus. Er is alles wat je nodig hebt in het huis en het is erg rustig! Ik raad het aan :) Bedankt!

  • Een mooie plek, goed gelegen met alle comfort van een klein huis. Gesloten voor stadscentrum en Howth! Bedankt Ciara voor je vriendelijke ontvangst en goede adviezen, we komen terug :)

    Charlotte2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • Een perfecte plek om te verblijven tijdens het verkennen van Dublin en de omgeving. Zeer onafhankelijke accommodatie omdat je je eigen hut en sleutels hebt om erin te komen, zodat je kunt komen en gaan wanneer je wilt. Ciara is zeer gastvrij en beantwoordt alle vragen snel en behulpzaam. Het ligt dicht bij zowel bussen als treinen, dus hoewel het niet centraal ligt, kunt u gemakkelijk Dublin en andere omliggende dorpen gemakkelijk bereiken. De WiFi werkt, maar kan een beetje in snelheid fluctueren. Zeer schone en mooie faciliteiten en bed. Zou het zeker aanraden aan iedereen die een bezoek brengt aan Dublin.

  • Kamer was iets kleiner dan verwacht, maar je verblijft in het huis met de eigenaar. Eenpersoonsbed is comfortabel en je hebt voldoende opbergruimte. TV in de kamer en in staat om keuken te gebruiken of om te praten met Tony en zijn vrouw. Uitstekend verblijf met een paar minuten lopen naar bus of dart.

  • Alles bij Tony thuis is buitengewoon aangenaam en comfortabel voor de gasten. Tony en Dolores zijn ook geweldige mensen - ik voelde me daar erg thuis! Bedankt jongens!

    Felipe2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Ik hield van mijn verblijf hier bij Tony's !! Het was schoon, comfortabel en gunstig gelegen dicht bij een DART-station. Tony bood me ook een goedkope ophaalservice aan op de luchthaven, wat mijn reizen en inchecken veel gemakkelijker maakte. Ik zou hier zeker weer verblijven!

    Jackie2019-12-29T00:00:00Z

    Jane2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Een fantastische plek om te verblijven. Perfecte locatie, een beetje buiten de stad, maar zo gemakkelijk te bereiken. Tony is een super gastheer, ik voelde me zo thuis, hoewel ik er nauwelijks was.

    Rose2019-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • Een geweldige kamer, gelegen op een gemakkelijke plaats! Zeer schoon en met een geweldige gastheer! Ik kijk ernaar uit om terug te komen.

    Amanda Beatriz2019-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • Dit is een zeer handige en voordelige plek om te verblijven in de omgeving van Dublin. Er zijn goede verbindingen met het openbaar vervoer, in de vorm van de DART verderop in de straat, waardoor het erg handig is om overal in de stad rond te reizen.

    Matthew2019-07-06T00:00:00Z
  • Tony's plaats is geweldig! Het huis was zo schattig, schoon en dicht bij alles. Ik zou zeker weer verblijven 100%. Ze hebben zelfs geholpen door voor de laatste ochtend een taxi naar de luchthaven te bellen. Ze waren geweldig voor mij!

  • Een echt juweeltje. Verborgen in een rustige woonwijk was deze plek een echte verrassing. Compact maar perfect ingedeeld, gezellig, brandschoon en misschien wel de best gevulde (keuken en badkamer) Airbnb waar ik ooit in heb verbleven!

    Evert2019-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • Geweldig verblijf! Donna was zeer behulpzaam en vriendelijk. Geweldige locatie vanuit of naar de luchthaven. Snelle rit in een taxi en Donna was er om al mijn vragen te beantwoorden! Zou hier zeker weer verblijven!

    Kimberly2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • De plaats van Donna was geweldig. We verbleven slechts een nacht op weg naar ergens anders, maar haar huis ligt dicht bij de 27 buslijn die u rechtstreeks naar het stadscentrum brengt. Leuke plaatsen en zeer vriendelijke gastheren.

    Kourtney2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • Het verblijf was zeer aangenaam, het appartement is zeer schoon en van alle mogelijke gemakken voorzien. Goede communicatie vanaf het vliegveld.

    Clara Fen2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • De plaats van Donna was geweldig! Gemakkelijk bereikbaar vanuit het centrum van Dublin, schoon, warm en met een uitgebreid ontbijt dat we 's ochtends kunnen maken. Donna en haar familie waren erg behulpzaam!

    Nikoletta2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • Gezellig, warm en schoon verblijf met alles wat u nodig heeft en nog een paar extra's meer. Gratis op straat parkeren en een eigen ingang. Mini melkkan, yoghurt, eieren en jam in de koelkast. Kast heeft weinig solide extra's. Veel extra toiletartikelen waren handig. Overal geen ruis en veel licht. Een geweldige tussenstop na onze vlucht. Geen tv maar het was niet essentieel voor ons doel. Lokale supermarkt SuperValu heeft alles wat je nodig hebt! Geen echte restaurants of pubs op loopafstand dus auto / taxi essentieel. Zal er weer verblijven!

    Elizabeth2019-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • Deze plaats was erg ontspannend na veel reizen. Het was super schoon en had alles wat ik nodig had om te koken en op te ruimen, wat een enorm probleem voor mij is! Zou hier zeker weer verblijven.

    Shane2019-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • Mooi plekje en heeft alles wat je nodig zou kunnen hebben. Het was perfect voor ons voordat we naar onze volgende bestemming gingen omdat het vrij dicht bij de luchthaven ligt. We hebben genoten van ons korte verblijf.

    This is a unique opportunity to see the sights of Dublin City whilst staying on a Nature Reserve with the peace and quiet that has to offer. The Cottage is 10 seconds from the beach and 10 minutes from Dublin City Centre by car or 20 by bus. There are wonderful walks on the island and also several excellent restaurants within walking distance or use the bikes for the 10k cycle path around the bay! We love to share this very special location with anyone that enjoys something out of the ordinary!
    The twin bedroom in the cottage would probably best suit families as the only bathroom is the ensuite through the double bedroom or an outside toilet!!
    The choice of instant access to beautiful walks and scenery or buzzy city life!
  • Ik wist dat dit huis prachtig zou worden omdat alle eerdere beoordelingen fantastisch waren ... maar het is echt een juweeltje. Het uitzicht vanuit dit huis is prachtig. Ik ging elke ochtend wandelen langs de stiermuur en zag kitesurfen en gekke decemberzwemmers .. het huis zelf is vol van karakter vanwege zijn leeftijd maar ook met de mooie schilderijen en antiek. Het is een klein huis, maar de woonkamer is vrij groot .. en echt alles wat je nodig hebt is aanwezig. Het is erg gezellig en goed verwarmd. De bushalte ligt op slechts 5 minuten lopen, dus de stad is echt toegankelijk. Miranda is mooi en liet benodigdheden voor het ontbijt. We komen zeker terug.

    Naoive2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Deze plek is geweldig. Zo'n mooi huisje EN locatie! Deze plaats was zo perfect voor ons om Dublin te verkennen zonder de stress van een verblijf in Dublin. De grote schepen voorbij zien komen was een ontspannen manier om elke avond te eindigen.

    Sarah2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • Een knus en gezellig toevluchtsoord terwijl Lorenzo de kust buiten sloeg. Uitzicht over het estuarium was geweldig en geweldige wandelingen net buiten de deur.

    Brigid2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • Dit was zo'n speciale plek om te verblijven !! We hebben bewust verschillende ervaringen opgedaan tijdens onze vakantie in Ierland .... een tuinstudio, een landhuis, een stijlvol stadsappartement en een gezellig strandhuisje. Dit was veruit onze favoriet. Het was warm, gezellig en echt uniek. Miranda en haar man gingen veel verder dan onze verwachtingen ..... alles voor een eenvoudig ontbijt en nog veel meer. De huisgids was de meest uitgebreide die we hebben gezien en al hun aanbevelingen waren perfect.

    Jean2019-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • Zowel Miranda (gastheer) en haar dochter waren allebei erg vriendelijk en behulpzaam! Th buren waren ook lol. We hebben genoten van het huis, de locatie, gemak 2 de bushalte (dus hoefde niet naar Dublin te rijden, het kostte slechts 3 € per enkele reis) en rond het eiland te wandelen. Nogmaals bedankt.

    Rachel2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Het huisje was prachtig en de keuken goed gevuld. Miranda liet zelfs wat brood, boter, eieren en melk achter. Het was als een thuis weg van huis. De omgeving was prachtig met veel leuke badplaatsen. We hadden de beste zeevruchten in restaurants daar.

    Jennie2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastische plek op het eiland Bull. Perfect voor golfers of vogelaars.

    Ian2019-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • Idyllische locatie op een eiland natuurreservaat. Hoewel oud, het huisje heeft volledige voorzieningen en ligt op slechts 15 minuten van het stadscentrum van Dublin. Uitzicht vanuit het huisje is spectaculair en verandert dramatisch met de getijden en het weer. Miranda was een vriendelijke, behulpzame en flexibele gastheer.

  • Fantastische AirB & B! Colleen was een geweldige gastheer, erg vriendelijk en gaf me een aantal goede pub-aanbevelingen. De locatie is perfect. De kamer is erg gezellig net als de rest van het huis. Kon niet genoeg aanbevelen!

    Dan2019-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • De plaats van Colleen ligt in een zeer mooie omgeving, gemakkelijk om Dublin vanaf daar te verkennen. Colleen zelf is erg behulpzaam en heeft geweldige lokale kennis.

    John2019-11-29T00:00:00Z
  • Zeer attente en vriendelijke gastheer. Gezellig appartement!

    Klaudia2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Ik koos voor Colleen's airBnB-aanbod omdat ik niet in de drukte van centraal Dublin wilde zijn, omdat ze zeer goede beoordelingen had en omdat de locatie er goed uitzag (als een Australiër die opgroeide in de buurt van de oceaan, is het hebben van water dichtbij een leuk pluspunt) en het bleek een zeer goede keuze te zijn! Haar herenhuis is charmant, de slaapkamer, die boven is, is van een goede grootte, met kasthangruimte, een ijdelheid met laden (zoals getoond op de foto's) en een comfortabel bed. De woonkamer heeft een tv met Netflix-toegang en goede wifi. Het herenhuis ligt een paar honderd meter terug van de esplanade - er is een pub, een buiten licentie en verschillende eetgelegenheden in de buurt en de 130 bus naar het centrum van Dublin heeft een halte vlakbij, op de esplanade. De busdienst is zeer regelmatig. Ik kocht een Dublin bus-, trein- / lightrailpas van 19,5 euro, 72 uur, vanaf het luchthaveninformatiebureau in terminal 1, en het was een geweldige keuze (het kost 7 euro enkele reis van de luchthaven naar het centrum van Dublin en meestal 3 euro voor de reizen in de stad, dus er is niet veel te zien om het een waardevolle aankoop te maken). Was ik blij met mijn keuze voor het verblijf van Colleen en zou ik er weer verblijven - zeker! Een sterk aanbevolen keuze!

    Stephen2019-11-09T00:00:00Z
  • Ik ben nog niet zo lang in Dublin geweest en mijn reis zat vol met dingen om te doen. Ik moest werken in Ierland, maar ik wilde ook genieten van mijn verblijf in Dublin en een goed gevoel krijgen voor de stad. Ik geloof dat de plaats van Colleen misschien wel de beste plek was om dat allemaal te doen. Ze is een mooie bruisende meid die me erg welkom liet voelen in haar huis. De hele tijd contact gehouden tijdens mijn verblijf, gaf me wat goed advies en deed echt haar best om me comfortabel te laten voelen. Ik koos voor de plaats van Colleen omdat het op een steenworp afstand van de kust ligt, maar ik was een beetje bezorgd dat het misschien te ver van het stadscentrum was. Ik was opgelucht dat het ongelooflijk eenvoudig en snel was om de stad in en uit te gaan. Ik raad van harte aan om bij Colleen te blijven en ik zal zeker terugkomen de volgende keer dat ik in Dublin ben.

    Willehalm2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • Colleen was erg behulpzaam en flexibel met haar tijd. Alles was zoals geadverteerd en het huis was erg schoon en gemakkelijk om met de bus naar de stad te komen. Ik beveel ten zeerste aan om hier te blijven

    Jason2019-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • Heel gezellig huis met een aardige gastgastheer! Clontarf is erg mooi voor een wandeling over de zee, maar tegelijkertijd niet ver van de stad! Zou elke keer terugkomen!

    Britta2019-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • Colleen is een aardige persoon, en hier is het huis heel lief. Goede verbinding met het centrum via bus.

Ze zorgde ervoor dat ik de gemakkelijkste routes in de buurt kende, suggereerde sites om te zien en plekken om naartoe te gaan die een aantal fantastische verborgen juwelen waren, ik heb echt genoten van mijn verblijf en als je op zoek bent naar een plek om te verblijven in Dublin zou ik de hare sterk aanbevelen, nogmaals bedankt Imelda!

Kamer en huis is erg schoon en goed onderhouden. Ik had een plug-converter nodig voor de lader, die was er al. Sterk aanbevolen!

    This spacious 1 bedroom apartment is perfect for an extended visit to Dublin City. We can easily sleep 4 people here.
    You will have full access to the whole apartment. There is 1 bedroom, a bathroom, a fully equipped kitchen with an adjoining large dining and sitting room. The apartment is yours for the duration of your stay , so you can get as comfortable as you like. Make yourself feel right at home. This modern apartment has everything you need, its been recently renovated, it still has that new apartment smell. You probably can imagine what I'm talking about..
    The north side of the city is a fabulous part of Dublin. It is one of the busier parts of the city. Hundreds of local pubs, many infamous around the locality and plenty of historic drinking spot for many famous people throughout the countries long history. The food around my area is pretty good also, depending on where you go, I can recommend hundreds of good places near my apartment. If you are into traditional Irish food , there is a classic Irish take away beside practically every pub. Make sure you ask for extra salt and vinegar on your chips. The chippers usually do a great battered sausage and chips. This apartment is right in the heart of Dublin, the neighbourhood is busy but it is beautiful place to chill out, have a few drinks and enjoy the amazing Irish weather that we don't have everyday.
  • Schoon en comfortabel

    Michael2019-12-18T00:00:00Z

  • Dit is een appartement op de 7e verdieping met een prachtig uitzicht en veel ruimte. Het voelt heel erg aan als een penthouse. Opgenomen met de lift is de gehele 7e verdieping van ons. Zeer schoon en modern en alles lijkt nieuw. Lilly voorzag ons van uitstekende aanwijzingen voor zover er te komen en in te checken. Een geweldige prijs, we konden geen mooier verblijf ergens anders in Dublin hebben. John Callahan

    Thank you for visiting my ad! A few things you must know before you'd make a booking: Comparing to the standard/high accomodation prices in Dublin it is an affordable place to stay. Recommended to people who would like to spend a few days in the town and prefer being in a simple private room with a comfortable bed instead of going to a hostel. There's no special service. I can assure you that the room will be clean and noone will bother you during your stay.
    The room includes a table, a cabinet, one double bed with fresh bedsheet and bathtowels. *It is normally suitable for one person, but I gladly allow couples to make reservation for two people. Please don't forget to put 2 person while booking a date. It can affect the pricing either (+12€)*
    It is a quiet, safe area on the north side of Dublin city. The shopping center (with super market, butcher, restaurant, cafe, pharmacy, hairdresser, etc.), Mc Donald's, petrol station, bus stop, church are just a few minutes walk from our house.

  • Ik had een prettig verblijf 's nachts. Ik vertrouwde alleen op de beoordeling en enkele beoordelingen en was aangenaam verrast. De plaats was rustig en ik heb goed geslapen. Ik reed in een auto en een goede verbinding met de M50 was een pluspunt voor mij.

  • Beveel deze Airbnb zeker aan! Heel dicht bij de luchthaven en gemakkelijk om het stadscentrum te bereiken via de lokale bussen. Op loopafstand van een supermarkt. Een ruime en comfortabele Airbnb die schoon en netjes was.

  • Erin's plaats was geweldig! 12 min van de luchthaven en had alles wat je maar wilt, van wasmachine tot een elektrische deken. Erin werkte met ons samen toen onze vlucht drie uur vertraging had en we midden in de nacht aankwamen. Geweldige ruimte, comfortabel bed en gezellige omgeving!

    Ashley2019-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • Erin's huis was een geweldig verblijf! Het was dicht bij de luchthaven en het centrum en gemakkelijk bereikbaar. Erin was erg meegaand en reageerde snel toen we vragen hadden. Zou absoluut aanraden hier te verblijven!

    Madeline2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Leuke, schone plaats in de buurt van Dublin! Een goede deal en bussen naar de belangrijkste stad gunstig gelegen in de buurt

    Zahra2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • Erin was erg aardig en gastvrij, we voelden ons zeer comfortabel thuis. Sterk aanbevolen als u naar Dublin reist en liever een beetje uit de buurt van het centrum bent. Als u met de bus reist, duurt het ongeveer 40 minuten. Tevreden over alle aspecten van ons verblijf.

    The house is a terraced house in a quiet cul de sac in Dublin, just 10 min away from the airport by car and 20 min away from the city centre by bus. There are groceries, pharmacy and places to grab food 2 min away by foot, as well as a bus stop where one can take a bus to the city centre every 5-10 minutes. The house has a kitchen, a living room, two bathrooms and a back garden, all of which I am happy to share with guests.
    I live on my own in a small house. The decoration is very influenced by my work, my passion for old and crafted furniture and my time in Scandinavia. One should expect a lot of wood and white, with simple and rustic furniture and a very cosy feeling. There is a stove in the living room that makes the best company in the evenings.
    Ballymun is a very interesting neighborhood and its story reflects some of the better and worse aspects of Dublin. The area in which the house is located is very quiet. There are supermarkets, food takeaway, pharmacy and a really nice coffee place at the rediscovery centre, which is located at the ol boiler house of the neighborhood.

    Wendy2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • We hebben hier een zeer aangenaam verblijf gehad. Het was een warme gastvrijheid met veel goede tips. Belinda is een geweldige gastheer en zorgde goed voor ons. De accommodatie was goed uitgerust en gelegen nabij een busstation, van waaruit u de stad Dublin of de luchthaven in een mum van tijd kunt bereiken. We zouden er zeker weer heen gaan.

    I'm going away for 2 weeks in June. I would like someone to stay in the house and look after my cat. I'll provide food, you just provide love! Peaceful house in pretty neighbourhood! Next to leafy St Anne's park and the beautiful Bull Island beach. Quiet little haven tucked away in Raheny but 20 minute bus from the City Center. Have 2 bikes if needed. Also 15 minutes by Dart to Howth, the stunning coastal fishing village with cliff walks and views of Dublin Bay.
