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 space

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.

Guest access

Full access throughout the house - except the attic, where the treasure is kept.

Interaction with guests

I work during the day as the principal of a busy architectural practice, but I'm happy to meet up and give tips and tricks for my neighbourhood. I also live right nearby.

Other things to note

Most things are within walking distance; temple bar is approx 15 minutes, the Guinness brewery is approx 10 minutes. There are a number of local cafes, although for a more substantial meal the city (between 12-15 min walk) offers the best selection of restaurants etc.

This was my very first airbnb reservation and I have to say that the bar has been set very high for future experiences. I appreciated the thoughtful details in Micheal's apartment and appreciate his accommodation of my atypical request re: check-in. The space is wonderful and within walking distance of all of Dublin. Quite a find. Thank you!

A perfect place to explore Dublin. Everthing is in walking distance! You are right in the middle of the city but it is very quiet. The house is very clean and really spacious. We loved the fireplace as it was a little chilly when we stayed in Dublin. Communication with Mícheál was great. On the first evening he visited us and asked us if everything is okay. You will find a lot of information arround your stay. We highly recommend the house to everyone likes a special home in Dublin.

We had a great time staying in Micheals's home. It was in an excellent location and easy to get to all the spots we wanted to visit while in Dublin. The design of the home is amazing and it is a very bright and a comfortable space. We would definetly recommend anyone to stay here!

Wow! What a special place -- truly a unique, thoughtful, tiny home. Four of us were very happy there, and enjoyed every detail--especially the glass floor and the lovely little outdoor space that brought so much light into the whole house. The neighborhood is definitely up and coming--a mix of local color and young artsy types. Lots of housing estates mixed in with unique refurbished spaces. Very close to Guinness and St. Patrick's, and within walking distance of everything else (if you enjoy walking.) Little coffee shops around the corner, grocery store super-close, too. Micheal's history of the house and his restaurant recs were super. Recommend!

Charming and comfortable home! We spent two nights in Mícháel's place and were very happy with its walkability, interesting architecture and well-equipped kitchen. Thank you, and nice meeting you, Mícháel!

Dad, Architect, Surfer - in order of context. Originally from Dublin, I've lived in the Liberties for over 15 years. The neighbourhood is fantastic and, when you get to know the neighbours here, many of whom are 3rd generation at the same address, you become an honourary Liberties adoptee.
Maria, my wife, is from Asturias in the North of Spain. She has inculcated in me a love of seafood, and taught me what it is to eat sea urchin, andaricas, and percebes (a lot of work).
My surfing has taken a back seat since our kids arrived on the scene, but Dara, the eldest (3), is just about at the stage where I can get him onto a board - so travelling out to the west coast may resume shortly.
