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

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

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

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

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

    This is a double bedroom in my 19th century terraced red brick home in a quiet residential area in central Dublin's south side.
    The room measures 5 X 4 meters and has 1 king size bed. While no bedrooms in the house have "en-suite" bathrooms, guests share 1 bathroom on the same floor with separate toilet up 1 short flight of stairs and another full bathroom down 2 flights, on the ground floor at the back, accessed through the kitchen. These and the kitchen are shared by a maximum of 6 persons including the host, when the house is full.
    These terraced red brick streets were built late 19th century. Through the 20th century many houses were divided into apartments and the area became part of Dublin's "flat land". In the 1990's fashions changed and these older houses became desirable residences and the change to owner occupation began, and many families with young children moved in.
  • De gastheer was spectaculair! Geweldige koffie en zelfgemaakte cake stonden op me te wachten toen ik incheckte :)

    Sol2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Het huis is gelegen in een rustige en schattige woonwijk op een gunstige locatie om Dublin te voet te bezoeken, het is in feite slechts 15 minuten lopen van de St. Patrick's Cathedral en alle andere bezienswaardigheden. Tijdens ons verblijf was Joe er niet en onze gastheer was Pia ... echt een fantastische persoon !!! Zeer vriendelijk en uiterst beschikbaar. Vlekkeloos huis, onberispelijke communicatie .... kortom, ik raad deze accommodatie absoluut aan en ik zou zeker terug gaan !!

    Marta2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Zeer mooie plek om te verblijven. De gastheer geeft ook nuttige tips over de omgeving.

  • Was een geweldige plek om te verblijven en op slechts 30 minuten lopen van het stadscentrum

    Christopher2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Je kunt zien dat dit niet Maud's eerste rodeo-hosting is. Van de zachte verlichtingsarmaturen en het opgeheven beddengoed, tot de unieke douche-cum-sauna natte ruimte, deze plek - gelegen op niet meer dan vijf minuten van de lokale Lidl - verwelkomt u met open armen. Nogmaals bedankt Maud!

    Haafizah2019-12-13T00:00:00Z
  • Alles in de studio is gezellig, de locatie is echt goed. We hebben een heerlijke tijd gehad in Maud's studio.

    Alfonso2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Geweldige locatie en mooie plek om te verblijven. Had alles wat we nodig hadden en dicht bij het stadscentrum. Echt genoten.

    Kate2019-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • Het huis van Maud heeft alles wat u nodig heeft voor een rustig verblijf in Dublin: het is warm en gastvrij, en de locatie is comfortabel, zelfs als de trap naar het bed niet wordt aanbevolen aan mensen die last hebben van hoogtevrees of moeite hebben om de trap te beklimmen . Al met al meer dan tevreden!

    Sara2019-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • Gezellig huis dicht bij het stadscentrum.

    Moritz2019-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • Mijn vriend en ik hadden een geweldige tijd hier te verblijven. Deze locatie is een beetje een wandeling vanuit het centrum, maar we hebben nooit een probleem gevonden. Je kunt een wandeling van ongeveer 25 minuten maken of het busstation is superhandig en om de hoek. De plaats was schoon en had een prettig huiselijk gevoel. De sauna was een leuke touch en we hielden van de supermarkt op het blok dus we konden ons eigen ontbijt maken. De buurt voelde erg veilig, zelfs 's nachts. Zou het aanbevelen aan een vriend en persoonlijk terugkomen!

    Katherine2019-11-06T00:00:00Z
  • Het gezellige pension van Maud is een heerlijke, rustige plek om te verblijven in een bruisende stad. Het was de perfecte locatie om Dublin te verkennen en konden gemakkelijk overal naartoe lopen waar we wilden gaan. Ze gaf ons prachtige aanbevelingen voor dingen om te doen en plaatsen om te eten. Neem absoluut de DART van Bray en maak de klifwandeling naar Greystones! We raden Maud en haar pension ten zeerste aan aan iedereen die Dublin bezoekt!

    South Circular Road, Dublin, Ierland

    This spacious & comfortable en-suite double room has wooden floors which gives it a warm and relaxing feeling! It comfortably fits two & is located a mere 15 mins from Dublin's City Centre by bus or tram. Our apartment is close to The Guinness Storehouse, Kilmainham Gaol & Phoenix Park, the largest inner city park in Europe. We are not in the centre of the city but we are only 35 minute walk along the Grand Canal. I work full-time so I am not around a lot and leave my guests to their own privacy
    The room is equipped with a double bed and is en-suite with a shower. With two built-in wardrobes and a computer desk. The room is ideal for a business trip or a visiting trip. The WiFi is very good and you will have access to it once you have checked in. Fresh towels are provided as are essentials like toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner and shower gel and a hairdryer. Breakfast is self service as I leave for work at 8am. The neighbourhood is small and very friendly. We are close to all amenities and live right beside the Grand Canal. We are a 7 minute walk from St James Hospital for those of you who maybe coming for study reasons. It takes 45 mins to walk to the city centre along the Grand Canal and there is also a Dublin City Bike Park 5 mins away so you could hire a bike and cycle around the city. The apartment is situated on the Red Luas line which will take you to the HQ of the famous search engine and that will take you 25 minutes and only 20 minutes to O'Connell Street. Taxi's are around 25euro from the airport to our house, but make sure the taxi goes through the city. There is also an aircoach to O'Connell street and from there you can take the Luas (Tram). Or the Airport Express to Heuston Train Station where you can take the Luas to Rialto. Make sure the Luas is going towards Tallaght or Saggart and get off at Rialto. It is a 5 minute walk to our home. There is visitor parking out the front of our building which is free of charge. We have a bus stop right outside our door which goes to the city centre. When you are taking a bus to our home, you take the No. 122 bus going to 'Drimnagh', pronounced Drimna. And you get off at Herberton Road. Ask the driver to tell you when that is. We have a Yorkshire Terrier dog who is very friendly. He never goes in to the double room and he is kept in the living space with my daughter and I. There is a private lobby area into my apartment so when you get out of the lift on the 2nd floor, number 2 in the lift. Immediately turn right and you'll see the door to my lobby. We look forward to welcoming you in to our home and hope that you have an enjoyable stay.
    What I love about my neighbourhood is the community feel and that it is small and friendly. We have the best butchers in Dublin's fair city and we are very well situated to the city centre without being too close. A mere 10 minute bus journey away is the heart of the restaurant hub of Dublin with cuisines ranging from Mexican to Japanese to good homemade burgers and french a la carte!
  • Geweldige plek en gastheer

    Ernest2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Verwacht precies wat hier wordt beschreven. Het was een heel leuk verblijf, alles was schoon, de gastheer gaf reistips en we hadden veel privacy. De locatie van het huis is perfect om naar de stad te rijden in slechts 15 tot 20 minuten, met verschillende bus- en tramhaltes daar, of om rond te dwalen en Phoenix-park of de dierentuin te bezoeken.

    Isabelle2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • Emma is lief en haar hond is schattig en supervriendelijk. De kamer is erg mooi en eigenlijk groter dan het lijkt. Het is een geweldige locatie, niet ver van het stadscentrum, maar ver genoeg om stil en vredig te zijn. Ik had een aangenaam verblijf en zou zeker weer terugkomen de volgende keer dat ik in Dublin ben.

    Malakai2019-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • Emma is een begripvolle gastheer die ons toestond om een mooie slaapkamer te gebruiken.

    Romain2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Emma heeft een gezellige kamer en door haar welkom voelde ik me echt thuis tijdens mijn verblijf in Dublin. Ze is ook erg aardig om me te helpen met transport.

    Han2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • Emma is een uiterst behulpzame gastheer die ervoor zorgde dat ze zeer duidelijke en gedetailleerde instructies achterliet. De kamer was ruim en schoon en alle voorzieningen waren in orde. De flat zelf is ook goed gelegen en op slechts een korte loopafstand van de dichtstbijzijnde tramhalte. Sterk aanbevolen

    Vincent2019-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • Emma's huis is mooi en comfortabel met een eigen badkamer. Geweldige locatie op 5 minuten van de tram naar de stad!

    Lee2019-12-06T00:00:00Z
  • Ik verbleef bij een vriend in Emma's huis voor een weekendje weg naar Dublin. Het is een mooie, stijlvolle, sprankelende schone ruimte met alles wat u nodig heeft voor een kort verblijf wat betreft de badkamer. De plaats ligt op loopafstand van bezienswaardigheden, zoals Kilmainham Gaol (20 minuten), of zelfs het centrum (35-40 minuten), maar koud weer kan het wat moeilijker maken. Er is goed en frequent openbaar vervoer. Emma's suggesties met betrekking tot doorvoer en taxi's waren waardevol. Ze is een zeer discrete gastheer. Je zult dol zijn op haar vriendelijke hond. Sterk aanbevolen!

    Our cozy double room is in a quiet central area of town close to a tram stop, bus lines and shops. It's about 30 minutes walking distance from the Temple Bar area Ideal stay for your Dublin trip! Please keep in mind our check-in times as we currently work full time therefore early check-ins would be a bit difficult to arrange.
    Old style Dublin cottage with bright rooms and comfortable furniture. Ideal location- close to town, shops and transport services.

    Christine2018-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Dit is een geweldige plek om te verblijven. De kamer / huis is niet te ver van het centrum van Dublin. Het is een goede wandeling of een korte treinrit op de LUAS rode lijn. Nog een leuke bijkomstigheid is dat de luchthavenbus je afzet bij Hueston, dat minder dan 1,5 km van het huis verwijderd is. De kamer zelf is niet groot, maar ik heb genoten van de lay-out; je hebt een opklapbare bank / bed, een rek om jassen op te hangen, en kleine kaarten voor al het andere. Gastvrijheid was geweldig, en alles is zeer schoon. Profiteer ervan

    Isayah2018-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • Het huisje was erg gezellig en schoon. Het was ongeveer 3 minuten lopen van de Luas (tram) dus het in- en uitstappen van de stad was vrij eenvoudig. Verschillende ochtenden moest ik vroeg vertrekken en ik had geen problemen met taxi's. Ik heb genoten van mijn verblijf.

    Kathryn2018-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • Ik vond het de perfecte keuze voor een paar nachten in Dublin als een soloreiziger. Het was gemakkelijk om er te komen met de bus / tram, ik voelde me comfortabel, had veel privacy en Jordan en James waren vriendelijk, discreet en snel met communicatie. Bedankt!

    Rachel2018-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • Jordan en Jame's geplaatst was precies beschreven. De kamer is klein maar heeft wat je nodig hebt en een volledig futonbed. De flat is zeer schoon en goed onderhouden voor gasten. Ook is het station Luas om de hoek en slechts een paar haltes van de belangrijkste bezienswaardigheden.

  • Ik verbleef 4 weken in Elvas Lovely House. De check-in was heel eenvoudig. Elva is een zeer vriendelijke persoon. Ze is gewend aan toeristen, dus ze spreekt een heel goed Engels om te begrijpen. De kamer is klein maar volledig comfortabel. Elva was erg vriendelijk. Ik kon haar alles vragen en ze probeerde me altijd te helpen. Ik heb genoten van de gesprekken die we hadden. Ik huur een fiets, dus het kostte me 20 minuten om de stad in te fietsen. Maar er is een busstation vlak voor het huis. Ik ben zo blij dat ik Elva en haar familie heb ontmoet.

    Sarah2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • Dit was een uitstekende plek om te verblijven! Niet midden in het centrum, dus je bent uit de drukte, maar echt gemakkelijk te bereiken met het openbaar vervoer. Elva was ook geweldig !! Ofwel iets klaargemaakt voor het ontbijt of het aan mij overlaten, de hele ervaring was plezierig. Ook is hun hond ook heel schattig.

    Kelsey2019-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • Elva's huis is zo comfortabel - ik was op Dublin voor een academische conferentie en de kamer heeft een geweldig bureau om te werken. Ze was een heel lieve en gastvrije gastheer en Buddy de hond is een prachtige toevoeging!

    Rowan2019-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • Ik heb genoten van mijn tijd bij Elva thuis! De kamer was schoon en zeer comfortabel om in te verblijven. De familiehond, Buddy, is zo schattig! Elva's zonen zijn aardig en zeiden altijd gedag tegen me. Ik zou deze gastheer aanraden en zou hier weer verblijven!

    Samantha (Sammi)2019-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • Leuke kleine kamer, die perfect geschikt is, als je veel reist. De verbinding met de bus is geweldig, bijna voor de deur, je hoeft maar minder dan 10 minuten te gaan. Over het algemeen vond ik het erg koud in huis, wat misschien ook door mij kwam: D De elektrische deken is absoluut geweldig en werd gebruikt.

    Sarah2019-06-16T00:00:00Z
  • Elva is een warme persoon die geïnteresseerd is in haar gasten. De kamer is klein maar voldoende met voldoende opslagruimte. Het beddengoed is goed en ik had echt goede nachten.

  • Isa gaf ons een snelle reactie voor een last minute boeking. De plaats was erg schoon en de slaapbanken waren comfortabel. Isa was aardig genoeg om ons te begroeten en was zeer grondig in de details.

  • Bed was behoorlijk goed gebruikt. Koud appartement. Ramen stonden open toen we aankwamen en geen hitte aan.

  • Zeer mooie gastheer en schoon appartement :)

    Paula2019-11-24T00:00:00Z

  • Schoon en netjes dicht bij het stadscentrum, maar op een rustige locatie

    Peter2019-07-06T00:00:00Z
  • Een perfect mooie plek .... Stedentrip als paar voor 3 nachten. Geschikt voor onze behoeften, goed geprijsd, we hebben niet veel tijd doorgebracht in het appartement, maar gebruikten het als uitvalsbasis voor het verkennen van Dublin. We kochten de DoDublin 72 uur transportkaart en vonden het heel gemakkelijk om een bus naar de stad te nemen en onze voeten te sparen de extra mijl die het zou hebben genomen om te lopen. Niet luxueus, niets gek, gewoon een fijne plek om te zijn. Ik heb wat reviews gelezen over de geur, het had zeker een muf gevoel, maar het stoorde ons helemaal niet (ik kan niet tegen zoveel parfum) ...

    Lisa2019-06-14T00:00:00Z
  • Mooi comfortabel appartement. Zeer handig voor een bezoek aan het Guinness Storehouse en een mooie rustige omgeving. De communicatie van de eigenaar is fantastisch

  • Dit was onze eerste keer dat we Airbnb gebruikten en het was een fantastische ervaring. Robert en Wojciechs appartement was schoon, comfortabel en had alles wat je nodig had voor een geweldig verblijf. De kamer was licht en zeer comfortabel. De badkamer was zo veel mooier dan de badkamer van het hotel en onze aardige gastheren hadden aan alles gedacht. Handdoeken, toiletartikelen, een haardroger, we konden niet om meer gevraagd hebben. Het appartement was ook op een geweldige locatie. We zouden het zeker aanraden aan iedereen die op zoek is naar een geweldig verblijf in Dublin.

    Fiona2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • We hebben genoten van ons verblijf! Dicht bij de Lua die u naar het stadscentrum brengt. De kamer was schoon en goed. Gemakkelijk koffie of thee plukken. We hebben een fijne tijd gehad!

  • We verbleven hier 2 nachten en vonden het geweldig! De plaats is superschoon en stijlvol, een zeer grote badkamer met alle voorzieningen die je nodig hebt, naast een tramhalte die je heel snel naar het centrum brengt. Ik kreeg altijd snel antwoord op mijn vragen en Wojciech en Robert waren ook erg vriendelijk en gastvrij in persoon. Bedankt voor het fijne verblijf!

    Spacious Double bedroom with its own fridge and microwave. Location is great, 25 min by bus to city centre and 10 min to the popular rathmines area, many pubs, cafes and restaurants near by The outside of the building doesn't look very nice but rest assured your room is in perfect condition and you'll be able to rest peacefully.
    This is a small building comprised of 4 apartments, all the neighbors are very friendly
    Harold's Cross is a lovely area of Dublin, Harold's Cross Park is right in front of the building and walking down the canal seeing the swans is very relaxing.
  • Het was echt zo geweldig. Super schoon en minimalistisch. Er waren handdoeken, koffie, een magnetron en koelkast. Veel ruimte om onze spullen neer te zetten en rond te hangen. Geweldige waarde ook!

    Kiley2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • Soriana is een zeer vriendelijke en behulpzame gastheer. Ze is zeer bereid om te helpen en tips te geven over de stad. Het bed is zeer comfortabel en de kamer is ruim, evenals zeer dicht bij het centrum van Dublin. Ik raad het aan!

    Carla2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Soriana was een geweldige gastvrouw, ze behandelde ons super goed. We voelden ons thuis. De kamer was erg goed en liet ons dingen voor het ontbijt. 100% aanbevolen!

    Rubén2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Dit is een ruime comfortabele kamer waar u zich welkom zult voelen. Gelegen nabij het centrum, 20-25 minuten lopen van de belangrijkste bezienswaardigheden. Gelegen op 1 minuut van bushalte 16, die van / naar de luchthaven reist. Soriana, bedankt voor het warme welkom en hulp!

    Нина2019-12-27T00:00:00Z

    Pavel2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Dit is een geweldige kleine plaats, Soriana liet me welkom voelen en ik ben dankbaar voor het uitproberen van haar Arepa!

    Kevin2019-11-13T00:00:00Z
  • Ikzelf en een vriend verbleven twee nachten in het appartement van Soriana. We werden met open armen verwelkomd en naar onze mooie en ruime kamer gebracht! We werden geïnformeerd dat we de eerste gasten ooit waren en waren erg enthousiast! Handdoeken en toiletartikelen waren voor ons voorzien waar we erg dankbaar voor waren! Het tweepersoonsbed was ongelooflijk comfortabel en er was ook een koelkast en magnetron aanwezig en ook koffie, melk en flessen water in de koelkast - een onverwacht maar gewaardeerd tintje! Soriana zelf deed haar best om ons ontbijt te maken dat heerlijk was! (een Venezolaanse ham en kaas gerecht genaamd Arepas). Ze zorgde ervoor dat we alles hadden en was zeer flexibel met de check-out tijd die erg behulpzaam was. De kamer was ook geweldig waar voor je geld! Ik zou het ten zeerste aanbevelen om van Soriana te huren, omdat ze zo'n zorgzame en vriendelijke gastheer was die veel aandacht aan detail besteedde! Boek snel, u zult er geen spijt van krijgen!

    Harold's Cross, County Dublin, Ierland

    i am an italian guy, living with my girlfriend and our little son (born on 22 November 2019)in a very beautiful, spacious new flat in the centre of Dublin. Flat is at top floor, in a new building and located just 5 min walking by the Guinness Storehouse (most visited place in Ireland!!), 10 min walking by Heuston train station and close to city centre and other important places, such as Kilmainham Gaol (the old jail), Phoenix Park (largest park in Europe!) and Temple Bar (most famous area).
    the neighbourhood is very quiet and close to city centre! In front of the building there is a nice gym with swimming pool and sauna (in case you would like to relax!) and a nice cafè. The nearest supermarket is 10 minutes walking, and in front of our building there is the largest Hospital in town, St. James. You are welcome ;)
  • Geweldig verblijf in Dublin! Gastheren waren super vriendelijk en gaven restaurant suggesties die geweldig waren. Ontbijtrestaurant ligt op een steenworp afstand met een goede prijs en smakelijk eten. Zeer comfortabel bed met toegang tot een balkon en over het algemeen een mooi en schoon appartement. Zou er weer blijven!

    Jamie2019-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • Schoon appartement in een gebied dicht bij vele voorzieningen. Een korte Uber-rit naar enkele van de geweldige pubs en winkels. Bed was comfortabel en alle dingen waren precies zoals beschreven, zonder verrassingen. Stefano was niet beschikbaar toen we kwamen, maar hij zorgde ervoor dat we dat van tevoren aan ons kenden en maakte afspraken over waar we de sleutel moesten ophalen. Hij reageerde altijd snel op onze vragen. We zouden hier weer blijven en het zeker aanbevelen.

    Barb2019-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • De accommodatie ligt dicht bij het centrum, de locatie is rustig, de kamer is schoon.

    Anita2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Leuke plek met goede toegang tot Dublin lightrailsysteem. De kamer was erg comfortabel en ik hield van het uitzicht op de stad vanaf het grote balkon. Vergeet niet te stoppen bij het Archway cafe om de hoek voor het ontbijt!

    Luke2019-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • Heel leuk verblijf in Dublin! Goed geplaatst in de stad en zeer schoon en rustig! Bedankt voor het verwelkomen.

    Pieter2019-06-10T00:00:00Z
  • Leuke plek, je huurt een kamer in hun huis, gedeelde badkamer. Dichtbij transportknooppunt

    Deb2019-06-01T00:00:00Z
  • Stefano's plaats was geweldig. Zeer aan te bevelen. Zeer schoon en comfortabel met veel parkeergelegenheid op straat. We moesten om 13.00 uur bij hem thuis zijn, want dat was het moment waarop hij naar het werk moest vertrekken, wat oorspronkelijk geen probleem was, maar onze vlucht heeft twee uur vertraging opgelopen en toen zijn we daadwerkelijk geland. Dus ik snel gemaild hem en hij deed zijn uiterste best om andere regelingen te treffen voor ons de sleutel tot onze plaats te krijgen. Dat hebben we erg op prijs gesteld. We hebben Stefano nooit leren kennen vanwege zijn werkschema en onze reisplannen, maar Gergana was er en ze was erg aardig en beantwoordde al onze vragen. Als je naar Dublin reist, kun je hier verblijven.

    Take a 25 minute walk past St. Patrick's Cathedral and Christchurch into the heart of Dublin's bustling city centre. This studio apartment has everything you need to enjoy all Dublin has to offer!
    This space provides fantastic value for anyone wishing to enjoy a city break in Dublin.
    Mainly residential area 2km from city centre
  • Uitstekende vervoersverbindingen naar de stad, duurt slechts ongeveer 15/20 minuten van het stadscentrum. Marian was zeer behulpzaam met tips over hoe je de weg kon vinden. Plaats was brandschoon, douche was HEET. Waar voor uw geld.

    Ashleigh2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Geweldig en eenvoudig inchecken, leuke borden om buitenlanders te leren hoe ze apparaten moeten bedienen en een efficiënt appartement. Het is tien minuten rijden van het stadscentrum zodra je een bus neemt. We hebben een geweldige tijd gehad!

    Rebecca2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Al met al een goed verblijf Check-in was simpel en de communicatie was snel. Nogmaals bedankt

    Anna2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Ik en mijn vriendin verbleven 31/01/20 - 04/02/20 en we vonden het geweldig, het appartement en de locatie waren beter dan ik had verwacht! Marian was erg behulpzaam door ons reisinformatie te sturen waarmee we gemakkelijk van Dublin Airport naar het appartement konden komen. Deze reis kostte ons ongeveer een uur, maar we namen de tijd. Ze was er altijd voor ons indien nodig en reageerde heel snel op berichten die niet alleen nuttig maar ook geruststellend waren. Toen we bij het appartement aankwamen, was het echt schoon, warm genoeg voor mij (verwarming staat aan tussen 1800-2200 in de wintermaanden, anders moet je betalen om het pay as you go-verwarmingssysteem te gebruiken). Een klein appartement maar absoluut prima voor 2 van jullie. Restaurants, afhaalrestaurants en bars in de buurt. De locatie was redelijk goed. Een bushalte letterlijk tegenover het pand met bussen die regelmatig naar de stad rijden, maar als u van wandelen houdt, is het slechts 25-30 minuten lopen naar de stad met onderweg veel plaatsen om te stoppen en te zien. Alles ligt eens dicht bij elkaar in de stad en is een prachtige plek vol echt gastvrije mensen. Zou hier zeker weer verblijven en vond het een fantastische prijs-kwaliteitverhouding in dit gebied.

    Shaun2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Zeer schoon en comfortabel appartement. Dicht bij het centrum van Dublin. Marian was een geweldige gastheer. We houden van ons verblijf.

    Gisele2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastische plek, hoewel het klein is, was het perfect voor de vakantie van mij en mijn vriend. Hoewel het niet te centraal is, waren er goede transportverbindingen dichtbij! Hoewel het aan de voorkant van het pand ligt, was er geen lawaai van de weg.

    Eleanor2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Kleine maar zeer functionele accommodatie, bus en winkels in de buurt, 30-40 minuten lopen van het centrum. Uitstekend onthaal, goede communicatie, geweldig!

    Ana2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Leuk, klein studio-appartement met alles wat je nodig hebt voor een fijn verblijf in Dublin. Slechts 30 minuten lopen of een korte busrit naar het stadscentrum. Vlotte communicatie met de gastheer en gemakkelijke zelf inchecken maakten het een geweldig verblijf

    Dublin 8, County Dublin, Ierland

    A king size bed with a beautiful newly fitted bathroom, centrally located on a quiet street, a mile and half from Dublin city centre. It is one of the largest bedrooms in my private, 3 floor house and guests enjoy the use of my lovely, spacious house and garden.
    As a designer my home has a unique colourful, eclectic appeal, filled with art and ceramics and quirky details created with love. In addition the bathroom is newly fitted with a wonderful pressure power shower, hot water always on tap, and even has a chandelier as a touch of luxury! The street is very quiet ( like staying in the countryside) although also within walking distance of the city centre (1.5 miles) or served by a main bus route and tram which connects to the entire city and direct to the airport links.
    A quiet centrally located area, close to the city centre, but quieter and more spacious than staying in the busy and somewhat noisy centre of town. Beside the scenic grand canal and served by main bus routes and the Luas ( tram)
  • De locatie van het huis is geweldig (15-20 minuten met de bus naar het centrum van Dublin) en Peter was een geweldig persoon. Ik hou van zijn energie! Het interieur van het huis is prachtig en gaaf! Ook was het hele huis brandschoon! Inchecken was ook eenvoudig. Mede dankzij zijn tip konden we genieten van een geweldig lokaal restaurant en café genaamd fumbally. Bedankt Peter en ik hoop je weer te zien :)

    예은2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Peter is een fantastische gastheer en zijn plek is geweldig voor een verblijf van elke lengte. Hij was zeer gastvrij en informatief en zowel in- als uitchecken kon niet soepeler verlopen! Zou het ten zeerste aanbevelen!

    Benjamin2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Echt een leuke plek, met een zeer behulpzame gastheer. Sterk aanbevolen en zou hier zeker weer verblijven.

  • Ik had een zeer comfortabel verblijf in de lichte tweepersoonsslaapkamer. De kamer is ruim en licht met een zeer comfortabel bed. Het huis is een oase van rust met gemakkelijke toegang tot het stadscentrum. Het is overal brandschoon. Peter is een heel vriendelijke, gedienstige en gastvrije gastheer. Het is een uitstekende plek om te verblijven.

De kamer en badkamer waren allebei erg schoon en fris. Peter's plaats ligt ook op loopafstand van vele bezienswaardigheden in Dublin, wat geweldig is! Absoluut een aanrader! Bedankt Peter!

    This spacious & comfortable room has new carpets and bed which gives it a warm and relaxing feeling! It comfortably fits one & is located a mere 15 mins from Dublin's City Centre by bus or tram. Cottage is close to The Guinness Storehouse, Kilmainham Gaol & Phoenix Park, the largest inner city park in Europe. We are not in the centre of the city but we are only 35 minute walk along the Grand Canal.
    The room is equipped with a single bed and a wardrobe. The room is ideal for a business trip or a visiting trip. The WiFi is good and you will have access to it once you have checked in. Fresh towels are provided as are essentials like toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner and shower gel. The neighbourhood is friendly and close to shops, restaurants, cafe and pubs. The cottage is situated on the Red Luas line less than 5 minutes walk to Rialto stop which will take you to city centre in less than 20 minutes. Taxi's are around 25 euro from the airport to our house, but make sure the taxi goes through the city. There is also an aircoach to O'Connell street and from there you can take the Luas (Tram). Or the Airport Express to Heuston Train Station where you can take the Luas to Rialto. Make sure the Luas is going towards Tallaght or Saggart and get off at Rialto. It is a 5 minute walk to our home. There is visitor parking out the front of the cottage or on the street which is free of charge. Several buses service the area. I have a small Frenchie dog who is very friendly. He never goes in to the room and he is kept in the living space . A small outdoor space is available. I am forward to welcoming you in to the cottage home and hope that you have an enjoyable stay.
    Cottage is close to Rialto village which has cafe, restaurant, pub, grocery store, post office and ATM
  • Super schoon appartement op korte loopafstand van het Guinness-pakhuis. Een verblijf in dit superschone appartement wordt nog handiger door een supermarkt om de hoek te hebben. Beveel een verblijf hier ten zeerste aan.

    Lauri2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • Raheel is een super warme en gastvrije gastheer met een schattige hond. Ze zullen allebei hun uiterste best doen om een geweldig verblijf te garanderen. Het huis is perfect uitgerust voor een verblijf en is gunstig gelegen direct naast een van de belangrijkste tramlijnen. Ik kan een verblijf bij Raheel van harte aanbevelen, ik zal in de toekomst zeker terugkomen!

    Lauri2019-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • Ik zocht een rustige plek niet ver van het centrum van Dublin. Met de tram dicht bij het huis van Raheel, is het heel gemakkelijk om het hart van Dublin te bereiken. Het is een rustig huis in een rustige straat. Ik vond dat leuk. Raheel was zo behulpzaam als het mogelijk was. Voor de prijs die ik betaalde, kon ik niet om meer vragen.

    Jean2019-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • Een goed appartement met alle dingen die je nodig hebt. Schone en comfortabele kamer perfect om te slapen en te ontspannen. Raheel is zo aardig en een geweldige gastheer.

    Miguel Ángel2019-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • Zeer meegaand en vriendelijk. Ik zou er weer blijven!

    Kyle2019-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • Raheel's plaats ligt op een zeer veilige en rustige locatie met een prachtig landschap. Check-in was heel eenvoudig en gemakkelijk. Rio is een absoluut schattige, vriendelijke en zachte hond. Ik zou het zeker aanbevelen.

    Hasnaa2019-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • Raheel's plaats is aan de kleine kant, maar heeft alles wat nodig is. Het ligt in een rustige omgeving, dus u hoeft zich geen zorgen te maken over het drukke nachtleven. De tramhalte ligt op 5 minuten afstand, wat erg handig is. Ik had niet veel tijd om met Raheel te praten, maar voor zover ik weet is hij erg vriendelijk en klaar om te helpen wanneer dat nodig is, zoals het vinden van een adapter zonder welke ik geen batterij meer zou hebben, wat natuurlijk een ramp is! ☺ Zijn vrienden waren ook erg aardig en gastvrij en zijn hond Rio (die er misschien wel of niet is) is natuurlijk super schattig.

    The Guinness Storehouse is a 3 minute walk from the apartment. Dublin Castle, Trinity College, St Patricks cathedral and Phoenix Park are all within a 20-30 minute walk or short bus journey. The famous Temple Bar area is just a 20-25 mins walk away, and is the heart of the Southside. The epicentre of Dublin nightlife, here you will find many examples of traditional Irish pubs, live music and delicious food places. On the other side of the river you’ll find O'Connell Street, the main artery of Dublin's Northside and a great place to start exploring the city. The neighbourhood is quiet and is mainly a residential area. Pim street used to house the employees from the Guinness Brewery. History: Liberty Basin; post-medieval Pim Street dates from 1813 and was named after John Pim, a merchant of Pim & Goodbody. The site revealed the remains of a stone and red-brick culvert along the Forbes Lane/Pim Street frontage. Cartographic evidence suggested that the culvert formed part of the 19th-century reservoir known as the ‘Liberty Basin’, built on the site in the 1820s, then owned by W. Brabazon, the Earl of Meath. After protracted negotiations between the various statutory bodies of the day and the Earl of Meath, the Liberty Basin was built in 1820–21 to supply water, via fountains to the Liberties area, which had to date lacked a clean and abundant source as enjoyed by other parts of the city under the control of the Corporation. At least three quarters of the Liberty Basin built in 1820 was revealed during excavation. The north-east quadrant of the basin is probably still intact under the adjoining property, which has a warehouse built over it. The remains uncovered were in good condition and mostly intact, with only some earlier removal and intervention. The basin was eventually decommissioned and used by the then adjacent Jameson Distillery to store and sell spent grain from their brewing process. A stone warehouse for industrial use was eventually built over the basin.
  • Alles was perfect. Van aankomst tot vertrek. Er zijn enkele regels, maar deze zijn redelijk. Geweldige communicatie en we hebben zoveel lokale tips ontvangen. Ik kan deze accommodatie zeker aanbevelen.

  • Geweldige plek in de omgeving van Dublin. Dicht bij het openbaar vervoer en veel dingen in de buurt om te doen en te zien

    Cameron2019-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • Centraal gelegen ten opzichte van alle hotspots. Geweldige plek als je wilt lopen naar restaurants, de rivier en Guinness. De plaats is schoon, mooi ingericht, heeft voldoende ruimte en geweldig voor grote groepen. De bedden zijn super comfortabel en ruim.

    Maral2019-05-18T00:00:00Z
  • Jen's Place ligt op een steenworp afstand van het Guinness Storehouse. De Big Red Bus en de Hop on Hop-off-bus stoppen ook op die locatie, waardoor vervoer eenvoudig en toegankelijk is. Een supermarkt was een 10 minuten lopen door een woonwijk. Het stadshuis was groot en past gemakkelijk in onze groep van acht.

    Dawn2019-05-08T00:00:00Z
  • Logeren bij Jen was geweldig. Zeer ruim en comfortabel. Het appartement ligt op 5 minuten lopen van het Guinness Storehouse. We vonden ook een geweldige lokale bar met lekker eten en mensen op 3 minuten afstand genaamd Harkins. Zou zeker weer hier verblijven. Een verborgen juweeltje!

    Joyce2019-05-03T00:00:00Z
  • Geweldig plek. Mooi en schoon. Een geweldige gastheer Een beetje ver weg en een beetje dodgy gebied.

    Marcus2019-04-25T00:00:00Z
  • We waren 7 vrienden voor een reis van 3 dagen in Dublin en we hadden een geweldige tijd in dit appartement. Het huis is echt groot en schoon, er zijn 4 kamers met enorme bedden: de eerste is op de begane grond, de andere boven. Er zijn 2 badkamers, een is groot en functioneel, de andere is kleiner, maar goed op dezelfde manier en het is in een van de kamers. Jen was altijd beschikbaar en heel vriendelijk. Het appartement bevindt zich niet goed in het centrum van de stad (het is min of meer 20 minuten lopen naar de tempelbar), toch is het gemakkelijk om een bus of een taxi te nemen, de haltes zijn heel dichtbij. Er is alle comfort en het is echt knus, dus we kunnen het zeker aanbevelen.

    A lovely bright single room located close to city centre along the Grand Canal. It is within walking distance of the city and many language schools, universities and colleges. The room is very suited to Erasmus and international students coming to study in Dublin. The area has many facilities , shops, pubs, restaurants etc (URL HIDDEN)
    The room is in a spacious house situated along the Grand Canal with easy access to city centre and Grand Canal dock business area. The trendy area of Portobello which has a great variety of coffee shops, restaurants and yoga studios is 5 minutes walk from the house . It is especially suitable for those working or Erasmus students studying in Dublin with many transport options to universities, and businesses. My aim as a host is to provide a safe and quiet environment for women travelling alone. There is a direct local bus number 16 from the airport to within 5 minutes walk to the house.
    The neighbourhood is a very safe , central nice area with many amenities . The walk way along the canal is full of activity . There are also many places to eat around Harolds Cross and Portobello area. There are a range of pubs in the area to suit all types of guest. The nearest pub MVP is especially welcoming for a lone woman to enjoy a drink. The shopping district of Rathmines is a 10 minute walk.
  • Super accommodatie, liefdevolle zorg Altijd weer

    Thomas2019-12-05T00:00:00Z
  • Het huis van Marie heeft slechts 30 minuten lopen naar het stadscentrum en er is bus 16 naar de luchthaven van Dublin, het is zo handig! In het huis vindt u alles wat u nodig heeft, en ook Marie biedt het ontbijt aan. Sterk aanbevelen!

    Xu2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Marie is geweldig en ik vond het geweldig om bij haar te blijven. Haar huis is gezellig en uitnodigend, en het bed is uiterst comfortabel + wordt geleverd met extra dekens als je zoals ik bent en het vrij gemakkelijk koud hebt. Als het een goede dag is, is het heel leuk om naar het stadscentrum of de DART te lopen, en zo niet, dan zijn er meerdere bushaltes in de buurt. Als gastheer gaat Marie boven en buiten - ze heeft zelfs een taxi voor me gepland, zodat ik niet om 3 uur 's ochtends bij de bushalte hoef te wachten. Ze is ongelooflijk grappig, aardig en een algehele badass-dame, als je me mijn vloeken wilt vergeven. Ik keek uit naar al onze chats, hoe lang of kort ze ook waren. Het enige wat ik zal zeggen is dat de wifi een beetje dodgy is in de kamer, maar eerlijk gezegd vond ik het niet eens erg. Het voelde echt alsof ik echt elke avond naar een thuis weg van huis kwam, en ik zou opnieuw boeken in een hartslag! Heel erg bedankt Marie, je bent een juweeltje!

    Laurel2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • Marie's huis lag op een geweldige locatie. Het was elke dag heel gemakkelijk om van en naar het stadscentrum te lopen. Ze biedt elke ochtend een uitgebreid ontbijt en haar huis is zoals geadverteerd. Ik genoot ervan om 's ochtends met haar te praten voordat ik elke dag vertrok.

    Madison2019-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • Ik verbleef voor de tweede keer bij Marie, omdat zij in elk opzicht de perfecte gastheer is.

    Anne2019-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • Dit was een heerlijke plek om te verblijven, niet ver van het centrum van de stad, maar verwijderd genoeg dat het een beetje meer rustig en ontspannen was. Marie was erg aardig en gastvrij, en het was een leuke thuisbasis om voor mijn eerste keer naar Dublin te reizen.

    Sonia2019-06-09T00:00:00Z
  • De kamer bevindt zich in een charmant huis in Dublin met uitzicht op het Canal Grande. Het is licht, schoon, ingericht met smaak en met een raam naar de achtertuin, waardoor je binnen in de stad kunt genieten van het prachtige landschap. Voor mij was dit essentieel: woon in de stad maar op een rustige plek en heb toegang tot het centrum, hetzij te voet of met de bus (stop op 5 minuten van het huis). Marie is een geweldige gastvrouw, attent en charmant; Ik heb echt genoten van onze gesprekken in de ontbijten (die dagelijks op de keukentafel heeft) en is altijd attent en ontvankelijk geweest om te delen, wat ik erg op prijs stel. Mijn evaluatie is het maximum voor deze accommodatie en deze airbnb-ervaring, bedankt!

    Gonzalo Y Natalia2018-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • Marie's appartement is stijlvol en ligt op een aangename plek aan het Canal Grande vanwaar je gemakkelijk naar het centrum kunt lopen of naar Docklands langs het kanaal. Marie is heel gastvrij, het is een genot om met haar te kletsen. Ik heb een geweldige tijd gehad in Dublin in haar huis!

    My place is close to St Patrick's Cathedral, National Museum of Ireland - Archaeology, Viking Splash Tours, National Museum of Ireland - Natural History Museum, and The Little Museum of Dublin. You’ll love my place because of the ambience, the neighbourhood, the comfy bed, and the light. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, and families (with kids).
    A room with natural sunlight, wooden floors. Clean carpeted stairs lead up to the room for hygienic purposes. Kindly leave your shoes downstairs on the shoe rack. Due to the central location in the heart of Dublin, you might experience some street noise. However, you would still love it as you can reach everywhere in city center by foot or bus :) Bed dimensions: 135*190cm
    Very central, live, easy access to all places in Dublin city centre.
  • Dit was precies goed voor een stedentrip, op korte loopafstand van alles wat je zou willen bezoeken - Temple Bar, Portobello, Christchurch etc. Het huis was erg schoon, handig en we zouden nooit geweten hebben dat de gastheer of andere gasten er zelfs waren omdat het zo vredig en ruim was! Ook de Teeling Whisky-distilleerderij ligt op een paar minuten lopen - zeker een bezoek waard!

    Lauren2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Wij waren er voor 4 nachten en de latere check-in was geen probleem. Hadi ontving ons hartelijk en liet ons alles zien. De kamer was groot genoeg, schoon en zoals beschreven. De locatie was erg goed, super gemakkelijk te bereiken met de bus vanaf het vliegveld en de stad kan te voet worden verkend. We waren erg blij en zouden Hadi aan anderen aanbevelen.

    Janine2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Het huis ligt heel dicht bij het centrum, de kamer is erg mooi, maar de badkamer bevindt zich op een andere verdieping! Maar de hosting was geweldig.

    Bia2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • Mooie kamer in een heel mooi en groot appartement. Hadi verwelkomde ons op een zeer mooie manier. Over het algemeen geweldig.

    Yuval2019-11-20T00:00:00Z
  • We hebben een heel goed verblijf gehad! Hadi's welkom was perfect! De kamer was schoon en het bed zeer comfortabel. Het huis is ook erg goed gelegen!

    Celia2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • De Airbnb ligt in de buurt van het stadscentrum van Dublins en dicht bij busstations. Perfect voor een stedentrip. De kamer was erg schoon en netjes en er was thee voorzien voor ons. Hadi, die ons verwelkomde, is een geweldige gastheer en altijd bereid je vragen te beantwoorden en je te helpen met je problemen. De badkamer wordt gedeeld met de familie en andere gasten, maar dit was nooit een probleem tijdens ons verblijf. Al met al is het appartement erg schoon en omdat het ons tweede verblijf hier was, hadden we het gevoel terug te komen naar een thuis weg van huis.

    Julia2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • We hadden een goed verblijf in Hadi's huis! Het huis is echt goed gelegen in vergelijking met toeristische activiteiten. Er zijn echter twee nadelen op het gebied van comfort: de ramen verminderen het geluid van de straat niet (bieden oordoppen) en er is heel weinig druk voor de douche (erg moeilijk om lang haar te wassen).

    Justine2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • We brachten slechts een weekend door in het appartement van Haya en werden hartelijk verwelkomd bij aankomst. De locatie van het appartement is geweldig, het stadscentrum ligt op loopafstand. De kamer was schoon en de badkamer was netjes en schoongemaakt. We hebben geen andere gasten ontmoet. Heel erg bedankt Haya, we hebben een ongelooflijk weekend gehad in Dublin - zelfs met veel zon!

    An 'old-world' two double-bedroom house on a quiet street. With a studio at the end of the garden.
    AVAILABLE ONLY FOR RENT BY THE MONTH. BOOKINGS WORK OUT AT 1688 PER MONTH. Two large double rooms available for couples, or singles. The beds are King Size, the duvets are Super King Size. This combined with black-out blinds and curtains means you will sleep deeply in this quiet house. The second Bedroom is exactly the same but very slightly smaller. Free parking os also available here on the street. There is no longer a lovely cat in the house. Sorry - I know some of my guests really loved him. He is missed by everyone... People say there is a lovely atmosphere in this house. So please come and enjoy it. Coffee available for guests, in both French cafetière and Italian espresso maker form :) The front door is always double locked, so your belongings and passport etc. will be totally safe here.
    One of the most visited tourist destinations is a 5 minute walk from the house: The Guinness Storehouse, with its panoramic views over Dublin City. Other popular destinations such as Teeling Distillery and IMMA (Irish Museum Of Modern Art) are also close by. Lidl is a 5 minute walk away as well, if you are needing to save money!
  • House was mooi en schoon en Rory en zijn mede-gastheer maakten het inchecken heel gemakkelijk. Het huis ligt zeer dicht bij een tramhalte, dus ~ 15 minuten naar Temple Bar enz

    Guy2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Dit is een mooi klein huis met 2 slaapkamers met elk een tweepersoonsbed. Het huis is goed uitgerust met alle dagelijkse benodigdheden. We kunnen onze huurauto gemakkelijk buiten het huis parkeren en het is slechts een paar minuten lopen van de tramlijn die u naar het centrum brengt.

    Esther2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • zeer mooie plek, rory is erg warm en ik beveel dit appartement aan ...

    Laurent2019-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • Rory was perfect, behulpzaam en beleefd, zowel voor de informatie als voor alle dingen die we nodig hadden. Het huis is erg mooi en met een mooie buitenruimte (we kregen ook het welkomstbezoek van een mooi kitten). Het huis is goed verbonden met het centrum en de check-in was perfect. Aanbevolen voor een vredig bezoek aan Dublin

    Elisa2019-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • Rory's woning ligt heel goed in de stad. Een 2 minuten lopen naar de tram en goed gelegen om de stad te zien. We hebben echt genoten van ons bezoek.

    Rialto, County Dublin, Ierland

    In the middle of the historic neighbourhood of the Liberties, the house is new, bright and warm, innovative and exciting; Located half-way between the Guinness Brewery and Christchurch Cathedral, it is within easy walking distance of everything. People particularly like the glass floor, bringing light and warmth deep into the house, and the remote control fireplace!
    The house is a small modern infill development (51 sqm) and was featured on 'Tiny House Hunters' TV programme in the United States. Although small, the spaces are ingeniously knitted together, full of light and very warm, thanks to a glass roof, and glass floor on the first floor corridor. The sleeping accommodation has one double bed room and one double sofabed in the study.
    The neighbourhood is an old working-class neighbourhood bursting with character, not to mention; antique shops, cafes, galleries, libraries, hip bars, local pubs, grocery shops, locals, tourist attractions (Guinness Storehouse), a couple of cathedrals, parks, a castle (Dublin Castle), trinity college, temple bar ... pretty much the whole package.
  • We hebben genoten van onze week in de plaats van Mícheál. We waren verrast dat het ondanks de beperkte voetafdruk van het gebouw nog steeds open en ontspannen aanvoelde (tot een goed ontwerp denk ik). Locatie was geweldig voor ons - rustig 's nachts, maar toch dicht bij winkels en cafés plus slechts een 15 - 20 minuten lopen naar vrijwel alles wat we wilden doen / zien in Dublin. Mícheál was een geweldige gastheer - vriendelijk en zeer ontvankelijk zowel vóór als tijdens ons verblijf.

    Matthew2019-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • Geweldige locatie en comfortabele ruimte!

    Aartdina2019-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • Ongewone maar aantrekkelijke en over het algemeen functionele ruimte in een mooie herenhuis enclave / buurt. Op loopafstand (anderhalve mijl of minder) van bijna alles waar de meeste mensen misschien in geïnteresseerd zijn. Beneden woonkamer is een beetje klein, maar we kwamen nooit voor middernacht dus hadden er weinig nut voor. (Als u in Dublin bent en vóór middernacht binnenkomt, wilt u misschien de volgende keer dat u reist een andere bestemming overwegen - zeg Lourdes of het Vaticaan.) Er is een gashaard naast een centrale verwarming om te werpen de ochtendkou. Keuken was behoorlijk functioneel, hoewel ik zou hebben gedood voor een drip multi cup koffiezetapparaat. Zou het zeker aanbevelen aan vrienden.

    Pete2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • Geweldige accommodatie, schoon, ruimtegericht, glazen vloer en dak (leuk idee en veel licht). Rustige omgeving, 15 minuten lopen naar het stadscentrum, 10 minuten lopen naar distilleerderij Jameson :)

    Andrei2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Geweldige plek en locatie.

    Karen2019-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • Dit huis ligt op een absoluut perfecte locatie om Dublin te voet te verkennen. We parkeerden onze auto bij aankomst en hadden hem niet meer nodig tot de dag dat we vertrokken. We verbleven 4 nachten en vonden het geweldig. Het was superschoon. We hielden van de open haard 's nachts. Het heeft alles wat u nodig heeft voor een geweldig verblijf. Michael was super behulpzaam. We hielden van zijn gids en leerden hoe hij zijn architecturale meesterwerk in zo'n kleine ruimte creëerde. Een van onze favoriete pubs, The Liberty Bell, was op een korte loopafstand. We doken daar onze eerste avond in vanwege de regen, en het werd een van onze favorieten tijdens ons verblijf.

    Dublin 8, County Dublin, Ierland

    A comfortable private double bedroom with a small fridge. Great for one person or couples travelling together. The apartment is 15-20 minutes walking distance from to the most touristic location, and just 5 minutes walking to Saint Patrick's Cathedral Church. *note that: If you are 2 people , you most put 2 people on your reservation ( not 1), as there are is an additional charge for a second person. ** there is no locker in bedroom door, Make sure you are fine with that.
    Its a cosy apartment close to the most tourist area and welcoming arrival.
    The apartment is about 3min walking to the Saint Paticks Cathedral and Teeling Distillary. Jameson , guinness and Temple Bar area about 10-15 walking.
  • Zeer comfortabele en schone kamer. De gastheer is erg aardig :)

    Alessandro2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Ismenia is een geweldige gastheer, gastvrij en zeer beschikbaar. De kamer en de badkamer waren erg schoon. Het grote voordeel is dat het appartement super goed is geplaatst, de meeste toeristische bezienswaardigheden liggen op loopafstand (ongeveer 10 minuten). Ik heb een geweldige tijd gehad! Aanbevelen :)

    Ondřej2019-10-11T00:00:00Z

  • Komt exact overeen met de foto's en was helemaal in orde, maar je kunt misschien mensen in andere appartementen horen als ze bijzonder luidruchtig zijn - ik persoonlijk niet, maar mijn vriend zei dat ze het deden. Geweldige communicatie van Isa ook! Makkelijk te vinden en perfect als u gewoon ergens uw hoofd wilt rusten voor een nacht

    Isobel2019-06-14T00:00:00Z
  • Geweldige plek in Dublin, op slechts 30 minuten lopen van het Guinness Storehouse, of als je niet wilt lopen is het echt een korte rit. De nabije omgeving is minder toeristisch, dus u kunt goedkopere voedselprijzen verwachten in en rond Temple Bar Area. De plaats is mooi en comfortabel en was perfect schoon toen we aankwamen.

The house has 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 1 kitchen and a small sitting room.It is a comfortable bedroom measuring 5 X 4 meters with 1 king size bed. A maximum of 6 persons including myself (when the house is full) share 2 bathrooms and a small kitchen with all basic appliances. 1 bathroom is adjacent and the other is on the ground floor at the back, accessed through the kitchen.

  • Ik arriveerde in Dublin met een plan om te blijven wonen. Pia had de leiding over het huis, hij is een geweldig persoon !!! Altijd bereid om te helpen, super metgezel en vriendelijk. Ik weet dat ik een vriend voor het leven heb gemaakt. Ik was 10 dagen en zij waren de beste !!! Super dankbaar! De locatie is perfect, het huis is absoluut een thuis. Super aanbevolen! Tot ziens

Het duurt een korte wandeling om naar het stadscentrum te komen, maar er is ook een busstation (122 busroute). Erg blij met ons verblijf hier. :-)

  • Joe was het toonbeeld van gastvrijheid, altijd bij de hand met kopjes thee en lokale tips. De accommodatie ligt op een geweldige locatie op korte loopafstand van het stadscentrum. Echt genoten van mijn verblijf hier

    Dublin 8, County Dublin, Ierland

    My place is close to St Patrick's Cathedral, National Museum of Ireland - Archaeology, Viking Splash Tours, National Museum of Ireland - Natural History Museum, and The Little Museum of Dublin. You’ll love my place because of the ambience, the neighbourhood, the comfy bed, and the light. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, and families (with kids).
    A room with natural sunlight, wooden floors. Clean carpeted stairs lead up to the room for hygienic purposes. Kindly leave your shoes downstairs on the shoe rack. Bed dimensions: 135*190cm Due to the central location in the heart of Dublin, you might experience some street noise. However, you would still love it as you can reach everywhere in city center by foot or bus :)
    Very central, live, easy access to all places in Dublin city centre.
  • De ruimte was schoon en zoals beschreven. Hadi was erg meegaand. Het is ongeveer 10 minuten lopen naar de rand van het stadscentrum en het centrum van Dublin is groot!

  • Het huis is geweldig, zeer schoon, heeft wat nodig is om een paar dagen door te brengen. Hadi is erg aardig en was erg aardig voor ons. De locatie is perfect. Cafetaria's, markten en geweldige pubs op 5 minuten en als je van wandelen houdt, heb je bijna alle toeristische bezienswaardigheden op maximaal 20 minuten. Mijn vriend en ik kochten de Leap-bezoekerskaart om de bus en trein 7 dagen te gebruiken en we gebruikten deze alleen tijdens de reis naar de luchthaven en nog twee dagen. We raden ten zeerste aan om hier de dagen door te brengen.

    Bianca2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • Uitstekende locatie, goed verbonden om de meest afgelegen punten te bereiken, warm en comfortabel huis

  • Het is waar dat de badkamer op de begane grond tijdens het slapen op de eerste verdieping een beetje gênant is, maar verder was het een aangenaam verblijf

    Javier2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • Leuke kamer op een centrale locatie, perfect om een paar dagen door te brengen in het hart van Dublin

    Gabriele2019-11-19T00:00:00Z

    Vladimir2019-11-03T00:00:00Z

    i am an italian guy, living with my girlfriend and our little son (born on 22 November 2019). Flat is at top floor, in a new building and located just 5 min walking by the Guinness Storehouse (most visited place in Ireland!!), 10 min walking by Heuston train station and close to city centre and other important places, such as Kilmainham Gaol (the old jail), Phoenix Park (largest park in Europe!) and Temple Bar (most famous area).
    the neighbourhood is very quiet and close to city centre! In front of the building there is a nice gym with swimming pool and sauna (in case you would like to relax!) and a nice cafè. The nearest supermarket is 10 minutes walking, and in front of our building there is the largest Hospital in town, St. James. You are welcome ;)
  • We hebben echt een leuke tijd doorgebracht bij Stefano, de flat is erg mooi en de kamer is schattig en netjes. We voelden ons welkom en hadden er geen spijt van om daarheen te komen.

  • Geweldige plek om te verblijven in Dublin. Zeer goede communicatie, het huis is zeer schoon en heeft een goede locatie.

    Edinei2019-06-02T00:00:00Z
  • Dit was een gezellige plek om te verblijven. Heel aardig koppel. Ik hield ervan dat deze plaats ongeveer 5 minuten rijden naar het centrum was. De trein was ook aan de overkant van de straat. Mijn vrouw en ik hadden een aangename nacht.

    Paola2019-06-01T00:00:00Z
  • Dit was onze eerste boeking via airbnb en we waren meer dan tevreden! Helaas hebben we Stefano altijd gemist, maar Gergana was heel vriendelijk, open en behulpzaam. Onze kamer was liefdevol ingericht met veel details, hoewel niet afsluitbaar, maar dat was geen probleem. Het beddengoed was echt schoon - voor mij persoonlijk erg belangrijk - en ook de badkamer. De verbinding met de stad was perfect. Al met al 100% aan te bevelen.

    Josi2019-05-28T00:00:00Z
  • Zeer schoon met een geweldige locatie naast de tram. Ik zou deze plek aanbevelen als je het niet erg vindt om buiten te blijven of erg rustig.

    Lacey2019-05-27T00:00:00Z
  • de plek is geweldig! Het is gemakkelijk om erin te komen en heel veilig. Stefano en zijn vriendin waren allebei ongelooflijke gastheren en zo behulpzaam!

    Jacqueline2019-05-24T00:00:00Z
  • Zoals afgebeeld in toevoegen. Schoon en netjes.

    Kerry2019-05-14T00:00:00Z
  • Mooie kamer op de 6e verdieping van een schoon en relatief nieuw gebouw. Mogelijkheid om gratis en gemakkelijk door het gebouw te parkeren. Voor goede wandelaars, het appartement is een klein half uur van het stadscentrum. Anders mogelijkheid om de tram nemen gewoon naar beneden het gebouw. Stefano en Gergana zijn zeer gastvrije en vriendelijke gastheren. Met dank aan Gergana voor al zijn goede adviezen.
