Experience authentic Georgian elegance is this unique large OVAL studio apartment, overlooking park. Accommodates two in cosy sleeping loft. Light a fire, cook dinner in the designer kitchen, and then head out to enjoy the attractions of the city.
Come stay in one of Dublin's unique Georgian apartments, a perfect oval room, situated on Mountjoy Square, in the heart of Dublin's North Georgian core, and just minutes from O'Connell Street. This large studio apartment is on the ground floor of a beautiful redbrick townhouse, built in 1792. Both house and apartment retain all their original features, combined with modern comforts. The apartment has a fantastic 10ft window and overlooks a quiet side street, with an oblique view of the park. It has a working black Kilkenny marble fireplace with a spectacular gilt over-mantle mirror. The log basket is fully stocked with fuel- we charge cost price on an 'honour system'. The fully equipped kitchen has a granite worktop, a gas hob, electric oven, dishwasher and microwave. The rest of the apartment is comfortably furnished with period furniture including a Georgian oval 'hunt' dining table and four matching chairs, a comfortable 6 ft., sofa, TV & DVD player along with an iPod/iPhone dock for music. A small library of Irish books, and DVD's is available. The bedroom is upstairs and overlooks the apartment. It has a comfortable contract-quality double bed, Siberian white goose down duvet and pillows and pure Pima/Egyptian cotton sheets. Read in comfort with vintage Anglepoise reading lights. PLEASE NOTE there is restricted headroom in the sleeping loft, and consequently, the bed is low. ALSO, while the apartment faces a relatively quiet side street, it is on the corner of a fairly busy main road, so there will be traffic noise.... A 90cm contract-quality single bed, and extra linens are available for a third guest. A charge of €10, to cover the cost of the extra laundry, will be collected upon arrival, if the room is occupied as a twin. The bathroom has a high-pressure shower and loads of storage space. •You will receive a welcome pack of the basics- quality tea, coffee, home-made granola and preserves, yoghurt, fresh fruit, free-range eggs and fresh brown soda bread. •100% cotton bed linen and towels are provided •Local tourist information and guide books available •Free wi-fi •Hair dryer •Fuel, at cost price, is available for the fire, if required. •Washing machine and dryer are available in the building- €7.50 •Secure off-street parking is available for €5 per night CHECK-IN IS FROM 2pm, but we are happy to take in your bags AFTER 9am, and can give you keys to come aback at your leisure, after 2pm.

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, a few blocks NW of us, does a good Irish breakfast in comfortable surroundings. 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. 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.

Frederick Dental Clinic, Dr. Peter Dwyer, North Frederick Street. -My dentist- is happy to see people on an emergency basis. Call for appointment. Tel:(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN). NORTHSIDE LOCAL RESTAURANTS: My favourite local is W. J. Kavanagh's on Dorset Street, just two blocks north of us, on the main road to the airport. It's an old Dublin pub, which has undergone a gentle transformation - a huge selection of craft beers, and a small, artisan-based seasonal menu. very laid back and no tourists. '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 'The Hot Stove', serving modern Irish food in a smart and comfortable setting. Across O'Connell Street, on Moore Street, you will find the Paris Bakery, and (new) Deli. They serve all day, until 10 pm; superb pastries and great coffee from 8am, as well as excellent bistro-style meals, and fantastic bread. 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, 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.) Clery’s Department Store is on O’Connell Street- have a look at the elegant 1940’s neo-classical façade, a mini version of Selfridges’s in London. 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 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 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.

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 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!
  • "Unique" is the proper word to describe this flat. And it is a truly wonderful experience. You are staying in a genuine Georgian but with the modern conveniences! Clean and well appointed, the flat is in a great neighborhood within a nice walk of everything you want in Dublin. Cozy and comfortable within a beautiful home. Karin was great and spent time helping us with tour plans and giving us a history lessons as well! I would highly recommend on all levels!

  • Great place to stay - walking distance to the city and Karin provided a lovely unique home away from home while in Dublin. Would recommend to travellers requiring their own space with all facilities in a great part of Dublin. George and Julie

  • Very helpful host. The house is very comfortable and easy to live in.

  • Karin had put together an enormous amount of information which was sent to us - it was great to have so many recommendations, and she also provided many guide books etc. We loved the Georgian house and the patina of age on the stairs etc. The entrance area felt very warm and welcoming, particularly after the rather "gritty" exterior of the road outside. The Oval shaped studio flat is well equipped, comfortable and surprisingly quiet given the main road outside. It felt safe and cosy inside. It's only about 10 minutes walk to the main part of the town. Some of the areas near the flat feel a bit grimy and run-down but we didn't encounter any trouble, and the flat is very convenient. The bathroom and kitchen were very clean and had everything we needed. Thank you!

    Susan2015-04-16T00:00:00Z
  • Karin's flat is lovely, and in a great location in walkable Dublin. Directions were perfect and all the tour information was great. Karin is a wealth of knowledge. The place itself is lovely, and the groceries and banana bread that Karin provided and added bonus.

    Driscoll2013-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • We arrived in Dublin, exhausted, after traveling almost 24 hours, and what a delight it was to pull into the welcoming environs of Karin O'Flanigan’s oval Georgian studio on Montrose Square! Our lovely studio was quite large, comprising a living room with a beautiful original working fireplace, bathroom, eating area and kitchenette (with very nice counter tops and many well organized cabinets), and a sleeping loft above. Karin had clearly attended meticulously to every detail, from the antique furnishings and period art work to the fully furnished kitchen (food, coffee, tea and other staples and a complete array of pots and pans, dishes, silverware, and appliances). Along with the books, DVD's, and more local information provided within the studio than you can imagine, Karin made herself available to answer any questions we may have had and to make sure all of our needs were attended to. She made sure that we had an ample supply of fruit, eggs, yoghurt, soda bread(!), juice, and pretty much anything else needed for a good breakfast on each of the four days of our stay. We really enjoyed the non-touristy, neighborhood feel of the location. Montrose Square is great and is an easy, maybe 15-minute, walk over to O’Connell St. and then down, across the Liffey, and into the heart of the city. The studio is very close to attractions like the James Joyce House and Garden of Remembrance, and also close to great neighborhood pubs and markets. Karin, who is really quite an historian, was extremely knowledgeable about the city and was filled with suggestions about everything of interest -- restaurants, pubs, museums, walks, transportation -- that turned out to be right on target. We highly recommend Karin’s Oval Studio. It’s lovely and unique, Karin is a wonderful host, and the location is terrific. Without pretensions, this studio was the most historically authentic and elegant city lodging we have ever stayed in during all of our travels. We loved it.

    Willa2013-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment was a real delight. Karin was very warm and left a great welcome pack!

    Sarah2014-04-25T00:00:00Z
  • Karin's flat is beautiful and in an excellent location in central Dublin. Karin provides lots of information on where to go as well as supplying various guide books on the city. The flat was very clean and the bed was very comfortable.

    This central location is ideal for your Dublin stay - a charming bright apartment with uniquely curated retro decor close to main attractions, provides every comfort! Your bedroom window looks out onto the beautiful gardens of the historic Kings Inns...enjoy!
    I have just spent the last few months doing up this apartment with love and care. Having experienced hosting guests in my own home through Air BnB, I find that I really enjoy looking after visitors and making sure that they have a great stay in Dublin! I wanted to enhance this apartment's unique features and also make it as comfortable as possible for guests. It is is small but perfectly formed! With a gorgeous brand new bathroom and a stylish retro 1950s style kitchen, it will be a special place for your stay which I hope will be a very happy one. I have also included some artistic touches , incorporating an antique stained glass window and some unusual old pieces of furniture - in a bright and airy atmosphere.
    Broadstone is an up and coming neighbourhood, (max) 10 minutes walk from Parnell street - Dublin's China town! Amazing Korean and Chinese restaurants as well as the open air market on Moore Street. This connects with the busy shopping area of Jervis St and Henry St. The apartment is a short walk from O'Connell Street (the main street of the city), Parnell Square, the Hugh Lane Gallery and the Garden of Rememberance. Beside you are the peaceful Kings Inns gardens which are open to the public, leading to the gorgeous Georgian architecture of Henrietta street, the oldest and best example of Georgian architecture in the city. The south side of the city, Temple Bar and Grafton street are all within easy walking distance. Also close by are Dublin's most famous theaters - the Gate and the Abbey. The famous 'Chocolate Factory' is on your route to Parnell St. On Parnell Square you will find 2 excellent restaurants - Chapter 1, the Hot Stove. Another great place to eat - 147 Parnell St. - is very close by. Smithfield is also only 10 walk down Constitution Hill - the famous Cobblestone pub, the Jameson Distillery, the Lighthouse Cinema, Stoneybatter with its wonderful array of pubs and gastro pubs- all within easy walking distance. Blackhall Place was designed by the famous architect James Gandon who also designed the Customs House and Fourcourts.
  • We really enjoyed our trip to Dublin as well as Air bnb though Andrea and her cosy flat. Before our arrival Andrea was swift to communicate and even alleviated an issue concerning an accidental cancelation. Upon arrival she gave us some great recommendations of things to do and places to eat. The apartment itself was cosy, but not cramped to which suited us to the ground. We would recommend the flat if you have a modest budget but still want to be near the City centre.

    Benjamin2016-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Had a great stay. Appartment was lovely and in a great location. Would definitely recommend and stay here again.

    Eric2016-03-29T00:00:00Z
  • After a misunderstanding on my part about our arrival date, Andrea was extremely gracious and arranged for us to meet her friend to get the keys. The apartment was lovely, well appointed and very clean. There were many bookletsabout Dublin and a well written note about local pubs and restaurants. The neighborhood wasn't as upscale as some others, but felt perfectly safe. We were able to walk everywhere we needed to get to within 5-10 minutes, but weren't in the middle of the hubbub of the touristy areas, which we really appreciated. We had a lovely stay and would definitely reccomend Andrea's apartment for anyone wanting a nice, comfy and clean place to venture out from. Thank you for sharing your home!

    Courtenay2015-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had a helpful email exchange about how to find the apartment easily. We were then met at the door by the host's daughter (host was unwell) who immediately made us feel welcome and at home. The apartment and surroundings were exactly as described. The apartment was immaculate and the host had left us eggs, milk and soda bread in the fridge, which were very much appreciated. We had a comfortable and relaxing stay and would love to return some time.

    Patricia2016-06-04T00:00:00Z
  • What a lovely experience in Dublin! This was a very nice, newly renovated apartment about a 15 minute walk from the city center. It was very clean and had everything we needed. Andrea was very pleasant to work with and accommodating as my husband and I stayed with our toddler. She left some essentials in the fridge for us which was very thoughtful. We had some minor issues with the washer and plumbing, however she worked fast to get them resolved and it never interfered with our stay. I'd definitely stay here again given the chance!

    Heather2015-05-09T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our time in Andrea's flat - it was extremely clean, well decorated, and comfortable, easy to reach from the airport and well-located to get into the centre (as well as close to Capel Street where we found a lot of nice pubs/brunch places etc). Andrea communicated with us in the lead up to our stay and made sure someone was on hand to field any urgent queries which was reassuring. We also appreciated the pack of suggestions and clear instructions for amenities which was in the flat on arrival. Overall a great stay in Dublin!

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

  • My friend and I had a fantastic stay at Marianne's flat which is just fabulous. Check in and out were just as smooth as possible, Marianne's instructions were to the point, the room beautiful and with a nice view to the square, everything as described even better and the location was very central for our purposes. We felt so at home and in a lovely place that spent extra time in than planned or intended because of the flat itself. Thank you!

    Stavroula2017-05-28T00:00:00Z
  • Marianne's place was a great place to end our holiday in Ireland. The apartment is in a great location and with in walking distance to the busy side of Dublin. You get to look out over the park every morning and you are a short distance from shops and dining. Great place to stay if you don't want all the noise from the main drag.

  • This is a very nice, very safe, very comfortable, very clean flat. we liked that it was an older building with character. It's just on the edge of all the sites so that it's reasonably quiet. Marianne was very accommodating and helpful. I would recommend this place to anyone who can climb a flight of stairs. Bus stop is just across the street, and bike rentals just down the street.

    This gorgeous room with en-suite is located in a Victorian home, on a quiet street, close to bus stops & walking distance from the city. It's perfect for two people with everything you'd need for a cosy stay. 3 people & a golden retriever live here!
    You will have a beautiful double bedroom perfectly suited to two people, with luxurious feather down duvet and pillows, a clean and elegant en-suite bathroom with a great shower in a cosy nicely decorated red-brick terraced house.
    The area is peaceful and quiet, just south of the city, but conveniently accessible. We are just a 10 min walk from Camden Street where you can find lots of nice cafes and pubs to try out and just a 25 minute walk from most of the city's main attractions.
  • I stayed just one night with Claire and her housemates, but it was an enjoyable stay. It is a very nice house, in a quiet area, and convenient for buses into town. Rio (the dog) is friendly, without being intrusive. The room is nicely decorated, the only odd thing being that the 'barn' door to the ensuite is decorative only and doesn't close - but the ensuite has a good extractor and this wasn't a problem. I hope to stay again at some point in the future.

    Richard2015-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • I really enjoyed my stay with you, Claire! You made me feel right at home, and were extremely helpful whenever I needed anything. The room was beautiful and just as pictured. Spotlessly clean! I loved Rio, too. The area was also safe and very nice. Thanks so much for everything!!

  • I loved my stay. The room looks exactly like in the pictures and it done with a lot of style. The use of space is amazing. Every corner is a signature. Claire was amazing even before I arrived. She had a full on Pdf done with the room, surounding areas and places close to the house usefull. She is a good host and a good people reader. Unfortunately we did not interact much, but she cought up with the fact that I had a busy weekend coming. She was not intrusive and was amazingly quick at replying to all my messages. It was wasy to find and only 20minutes away from most sightseeing places. I would truly recommend Claire's place to anyone either passing by or staying for a while.

    Bianca2014-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed two nights at Claire's. She was very friendly and welcoming. Bedroom was beautiful and home was a close walk to food and entertainment. Wonderful start to our vacation!

  • Claire's place is wonderful! Very elegant and clean (just like the pictures). You would never know your in the city, as the location is in a quite neighborhood with on street parking. Right around the corner you'll find shops and cafe's and it's about a 20 or so minute walk to the downtown area for all your site seeing. Highly recommended! Oh and not to forget Rio their golden retriever is an absolute sweetheart!

  • Staying with Anastazio was great. The apartment and bedroom was exactly like the pictures. He was very friendly, even baked a cake for us :) I went out with him and his friends in the weekend and had a great time. Anastazio is now a friend and not just a host. Would for sure stay here again.

  • Well what can I say... First time in Dublin and can really see why people love staying here with Anastazio we had a great weekend. The apartment was very clean and well looked after. Anastazio was very relaxed and laid back and let us do what we wanted, gave us a spare key so we could come and go as we pleased. All round he is quite a character (in a good way) we enjoyed every minute of his company and cannot wait to home back!!

    Dean 2016-04-11T00:00:00Z
  • Anas is the exemplar of a perfect host! He adds to the experience of this listing, by having a smile that always come with a jovial and positive character. A good indication of why he is a Super Host. I emphatically believe a host can strongly influence the experience for the better or worse. And Anas was for the better! The listing was great and exactly the same as seen in the photographs. If only I knew about this location beforehand when I came in August, would I have been able to see a hurling match at Croke Park, since the listing is a block away from this venue! Great place and great location!

    Marc2015-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • I cannot begin to describe the delight we experienced while staying with Anastazio! He is the ultimate host and did everything to extend his unique form of hospitality in the most delightful ways. The flat is lovely and comfortable. He made us feel like family during our stay. I highly recommend him, and should you be blessed with a reservation at his flat, it will be a memory you will never forget. His smile and warmth are contagious, so be prepared to relax and laugh.

    dianna2014-06-05T00:00:00Z
  • He's not a superhost for no reason! Not only did I received the 5 stars welcoming, the experience I have had with Anastazio and his 'brother' has exceeded any star rating system. We shared stories, laughs & giggles, delicious home made food (yes, he also happens to be a super chef!!!), and even the experience of setting up the first Christmas tree in his apartment! Despite the modern and tasteful decor in his loft (it's the same from the photos), it was by far the warmest and the most cozy bnb I have ever visited. Anastazio has undoubtedly set a very high bar for the other bnb. The whole experience was perfect and I have never thought I would come around in saying that. It was my first time travelling in a foreign country on my own, and I felt very well taken care of. He was always quick to respond(ever since I requested for a booking), very accommodating, always there to help (don't be afraid to ask!). I honestly can go on and on about this superhost. But you would have to experience it for yourself! I highly doubt anybody can ask for a better airbnb experience. And to be frank, I can't wait to visit Ireland again, and when I do swing by Dublin, I am not staying anywhere else!

    I share the apartment with my girlfriend Carmen and we welcome you to our cosy home. Its a very relaxed atmosphere, we enjoy playing music, drinking tea and discussing the meaning of milk. -> Please note: Starting from August we will also be sharing the Apartment with our Cat "Frank Fluff".
    There are many things on the walls to be looked at and to be discovered, great books to be read and many guitars to be played. ->Please be aware that this is an apartment, so everything is a bit "smaller" especially the kitchen. It isn't really suitable for cooking big meals, however quick breakfasts and snacks are no problem! If you are thinking of arriving by car, please be aware that parking at our apartment is very difficult and expensive, as it is a ‘pay and display’ system. Free parking in Ranelagh is only available between the hours of 7pm and 7am Monday to Saturday. (Sunday is free parking all day)
    We live in Ranelagh - trust us, you will love it!
  • Lawrence and Carmen's place was very conveniently located, with very easy access to the city centre, supermarket, great places to eat, gyms - anything you may need! They went out of their way to be helpful and were full of good suggestions for things to do. They were wonderful company and very considerate of us as guests in their home. Would definitely recommend to others, and would love to visit again.

Thank you to both of them! :)

  • Great place, very clean and comfortable. It's a bit far from the city center though, about a 30 minute walk. I recommend using the Dublin bike share to get around.

    Henry2017-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • A great price for a very nice, modern house. Back patio was lovely and kitchen was well equipped. Easy bus ride or half hour walk into city center.

    Katherine2017-06-29T00:00:00Z
  • Place was great - clean, well kitted out, 3 bedrooms all with en-suite, plus additional small bathroom. 5 minutes walk from Grand Canal Dart and (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN), 15 minutes easy walk to 3Arena. So very easy to get to. Communication with owner was very prompt at all times, and faultless. Would def use again if required in Dublin, and very happy to recommend without reservation.

  • Eduardo was very welcoming as were his flat mates. All very nice young men. Edouard and one mate were gone in the evening. One was home and he stayed to himself. Very comfortable with a lovely large bathroom with a deep soaker tub and a shower. His apartment is beautiful with a gorgeous view. It is a little difficult to find if you use the Thorncastle address on AirBnB. It is much better to say PortView Apartments. The room had a view of the water and the lights of the city. Suggestions would be to put a bath mat out for the floor. It is slippery when wet. The tub itself is kind of slippery when taking a shower but there are tub rails to hold. There was no hand towel to use when washing your hands. Only one bath towel per person which is hard for someone with long hair. The cleaning fee is pretty high in comparison to other spots. All in all he was very accommodating and a friendly person. He helped us find a restaurant for dinner and it is within walking distance of many Dublin sights if you don't mind a bit of a stroll.

    Sindy2016-06-23T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful view, quiet area, near tram station, clean room. Edouard is very kind host.

    hiroki2017-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely great place to stay! Edouard was on vacation, so unfortunately we weren't able meet. He was very accommodating though, and the apartment was clean. The view is amazing. I would definitely stay here again!

    Aric2016-06-27T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice and roomy flat with great views. In contrast to what some other reviews have said, the room is certainly big enough. Edouard and his flatmate received me well and helped my out with the directions. The place wasn't very tidy, but was it a complete mess either. Same for the bathroom that wasn't 'hotel' clean, nor was it disgusting. All in all a reasonable experience, average cleanliness compensated by good hosts.

    Teun2016-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • Eddy was a great host in the sense of makingvsure my needs were met. He communicated and assisted me with my concerns. I had made an error in my reservation and he went beyond to help me. The apartment is spectacular. The location is wonderful wants you get your directions figured out. It wss a seven minute walk to public transportation toward city centre; Trinity College area. Also, to the shuttle express to airport. Overall, it really was a good choice to book through him.

    Andrew2016-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • The Flat was very nice with an amazing view on Dublin Port. We were able to arrive pretty late even as Edouard had to work on the next morning. Overall it was a great Airbnb Experience!

    This room offers a 4'6" sofa-bed and is suitable up to two people. It has use of a shared bathroom, shared with one other room only. (WHB, Shower and WC). We live close to Ringsend village in the middle of Dublin's new and vibrant dockland 'silicone valley'. The rejuvenated Dublin docklands is now home to the European headquarters of the worlds largest search engine (website hidden), (website hidden)the largest social media company, Paypal and Airbnb to mention but a few, These are all within a 15min of our home, making the Boathouse an ideal place to stay for business or pleasure. Its a pleasant 10 min walk through the park to the village and then on towards the city centre, by bus or by Luas (tram) for ten minutes more. We're within walking distance of the Bord Gais Theatre offering a selection of Westend and broadway touring shows. It was designed by architect Daniel Libeskind in the beautiful settings of the Grand Canal Harbour; 20mins walk. The harbour area has a variety of restaurants and places to sit out while enjoying a coffee or a glass of wine and is always a great place to go on a warm evening. As its one of my favourite places, I'll be happy to share with you all of my recommendations on where to eat and where to avoid. We provide a guest manual containing details of local restaurants, amenities and home delivery menus.
  • Lovely house - warm and cosy. One of the nicest Airbnb rooms I have stayed in - super-comfy. Great hosts who made me feel very welcome. Very central for Silicon Docks. Recommend :-)

  • Loved my time with Lynda! So knowledgeable about Dublin and things to do and see. More than willing to help in planning a fun day in Dublin. Gave us a key so we could come and go as we pleased. Definitely would recommend staying here.

    Nora 2016-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • Lynda's house was lovely and comfortable, and we received a warm welcome. We came in from the Stena Line dock and found that it's easier to take a cab to the house than public transportation. The room has an en-suite bathroom with an excellent shower, and the bed is very comfortable. A short walk through a nice park brings you to pubs, cafes and busses into town. Very pleased with our stay.

    Janet2017-08-27T00:00:00Z

Re location - there's not loads in the immediate vicinity but it's walking distance to the city centre and to Sandymount. I'd definitely recommend staying here.

My boyfriend and I arrived a little late and had to leave early in the morning so my only regret is that we didn't get to spend more time in her lovely home.

  • Bruno and his wife were great hosts; friendly and accommodating. They included personalized details which was a nice touch for our stay and offered amenities to make sure we had everything we needed and were comfortable. We did stand in the rain for a few minutes while we tried to get into the complex the first time, but after we called Bruno directly, he promptly came down to let us in and we had a key going forward. We did have a car, but it is an easy walk to get to restaurants and pubs without one. If you have a car and need to use the car park, it is a little expensive. Overall, we had a great stay.

    Jessica2017-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • Bruno is always available and ready to help. If his English isn't perfect, that's made up for by his availability and eagerness to provide any help you need. The apartment has lovely views and is quiet. The only thing people should know is that other guests may be staying as well, so that the bathroom is shared by potentially six people. We had no problems with it since everyone was courteous and respectful. There are lots of bathroom toiletries available, a hair dryer and different kinds of electrical adapters. Bruno lent me his laptop so I could check in online. Bruno and Lu are friendly and enthusiastic hosts.

    Marit2017-09-25T00:00:00Z

The room is very comfortable, excellent wifi and has a great view. The shared bathroom has all the stuff a traveller requires. You might bump into other travellers but this just adds to relaxed mood of Bruno's place.

    The neighborhood is a small village type place.

If you're in Dublin for a match or concert at the Aviva you won't find a better place! transport bus luas (swift tram), number 1 and 47 bus but in Dublin you can walk almost anywhere! Grand canal dart station is a ten minute walk, you can go into the city, or north or south to Dublin's coastal towns from there

    Jared2014-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • Some other airbnb cancel on us and Julie rescue us from sleeping in the street or paying a really really expensive hotel so what can I say. 5 stars is just not enough for Julie she deserves at least 20 , is like staying in a friend house maybe even better as I don't think I'm this nice and friendly even with my own friends Great location , if you are a light sleeper like me then this is perfect for you, just silent in the night perfect place to rest after a day our in Dublin . The place is spot on clean , extremely close to the 3 arena (or the point as people from dublin call it ) transport everywhere if you are going to Dublin unless you are staying, on the penthouse in the Clarence you can not beat Julie , if we go back to dublin we will choose her again without thinking

    rogelio2015-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • Julie is a lovely host, friendly and kind! She made us feel very welcome in her house, which is a really nice place. She also gave us some recommendations of what to do and where to eat. The place is exactly as in the photos, and the bed is very comfortable. It's about 20 min walk to the centre. However, if you are tired after a long day walking around, there is a bus that leave you practically in the door. I do recommend this place!

    Ana Luiza2015-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • The place was exactly as advertised.. and as you can read in all the other reviews: clean, comfortable bed, friendly host,… A home away from home. A bit outside the real center, but still walkable (and it’s a nice walk along the river Liffey.. you can’t get lost either). Within 10 min. walking you will find the bus to the airport and the DART train which can take you to the coastal cities and Howth. I would stay there again at my next visit ! Really felt at home with Julie.

    俐穎2017-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time! Francesco was amazingly accommodating and helpful, making the stressful transition from the airport to Dublin so easy. He was watching our flight status so I didn't have to worry about communicating what time we would get there when our flight was delayed, and he met us promptly by our taxi and helped us with our bags. His apartment is great, super comfortable bed and nice, large bathroom. We are both reserved, private people and Francesco left us alone to explore the city and recover from jet lag. The apartment is about a 30 minute walk to city centre, and there are tons of restaurants and pubs around the apartment and a grocery store right around the corner. The walk was great for us, and we stopped and got food and a drink on our way back. Francesco had tea, coffee and biscuits ready in the morning and made me fresh toast with homemade blackberry jam. All in all it was a lovely experience and we would absolutely stay with him again!

    Katie2017-05-27T00:00:00Z

    Alex2017-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • This was a very nice, clean and quiet ground floor apartment - from the airport, you can catch the 747 bus to the convention centre, and from there it's just a short walk. The apartment is situated in a good location with many convenience stores and places to eat nearby. Met Kevin outside the block and then he gave me a quick tour of the place and how to operate various things. Would stay here again!

    Pav2016-04-25T00:00:00Z
  • nice apartment but really needs updated and looked after. the positive was the location, very close to Connolly Station and city centre. Kevin very pleasant and attentive host.

  • Very good city centre location, easily accessible to all amenities. The apartment is very quiet with a great view overlooking the river. The room was cosy and clean and as described. My flight was a little delayed well beyond my expected arrival time the hosts were most accommodating. I was made feel welcome throughout my stay and everyone was very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend staying here

  • Perfect location in the city. The room and the bathroom are newly decorated. Very silent area. 12 minutes walk from the city center.

    Cathy2017-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • The double room with ensuite is as per described although my wife and I both felt it needed 'the finishing touches'. The entrance hall, kitchen, hall stairs and landing, and back garden to us clearly felt like they were 'work in progress', given more TLC we feel it will make it a far nicer place to stay. On a positive note communications with Angela, value for money and location were, for us at least, great.

    Ian2017-09-05T00:00:00Z

    Tad2017-05-31T00:00:00Z
  • Angela's apartment is located near (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Docks, in a renewed and fascinating area that mixes new buildings with the charm of Gran Canal. The Dublin bus stop is 3/4 mins far while the DART is even closer. Me and my girlfriend spent 3 nights without a single problem. Her son Lorenzo gave us a warm welcome and she has been very helpful all the time. The room is very clean and all the furniture is brand new, as for the bathroom. Unfortunately we haven't been able to use the kitchen because of an unexpected technical issue but we hope to try it during our next visit. All in all, very good price performance.

  • It was my business trip for the last moment so I was glad I found this place immediately. After arrival, it turned out that everything iIs exactly the same with the description and photos. House owner was very nice and helpful. I can strongly recommend this place. Very close to the financial center, good restaurants and about 30 min walk to the center of town. What more could you want?

  • Great location, loved the neighbourhood. Tara is a friendly host who accommodated our Morning no arrival and had some provisions for us and got back to us quickly when we had questions.

    Mary Lou2017-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment was perfect for my family and I. It was very clean and cozy. Tara was very accommodating and even provided basic food items. My nephew especially loved the apartment as there was a tv so he was able to watch cartoons and a park nearby where he was able to play. I cannot recommend this apartment enough. It was exactly as described and Tara was a wonderful host.

    Krystal2017-07-22T00:00:00Z

  • Tara's apartment is really big and confi and perfect for groups up to 4 people. The bus station is not far away so can get to the O'Connor Street really easily! Supermarkets and Bars are nearby. I would really recommend to stay at this place!

    André2017-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the location of Tara's place. There's a bus stop on the next street over which made it easy to jump on and take a quick ride straight to Trinity college. Parking is on the street outside of the building and we were always able to find a spot without issue. Tara was great at communicating with us and arranged for us to be met and shown around the apartment by family when she was out of town. The apartment could use a fresh coat of paint but is quite comfortable and had everything we needed to sleep, cook, and do laundry easily. I would definitely come back and stay again.

    Kelli2017-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in Dublin for 2 nights and were so pleasantly surprised with how conveniently located the apartment was. Having never been to the Dublin area before, it was a great place to stay! Tara was so incredibly kind and so quick and easy to communicate with. Having only stayed in a few AirBnb's, Tara has set the bar very high. The apartment is very comfortable, clean, and well kept. We were greeted with scones and crumpets, and she even had milk, butter and a few other essentials for us. We couldn't have asked for a better host, if we are ever back we will certainly stay with her again! Thank you for a great holiday, Tara!

    Erin2017-09-23T00:00:00Z

  • Super clean, comfortable apartment! Fairly quiet area! Walkable distance to all the touristic attractions, we didn't have to use public transport at all which was great! Yves was very nice and made few suggestions in regards places to visit. He was staying in the apartment in his other room for the first night but that didn't bother us at all. Generally great stay!

    Paulina2017-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Yves’s place is one of the best Airbnb’s I’ve stayed at in Dublin. It is a home away from home in it being spotlessly clean, very easy to find, and the tram stopping right in front of the apartment. If you decide to stay at his place you’ll have a very spacious and homely bedroom with a cupboard with hangers, heated room, a very comfortable bed. In addition to this there is a power shower, fully equipped kitchen(Fridge, Microwave) TV with many channels, clean carpet, iron, functioning washing machine and Yves’s communication. The Wi-Fi is strong and view from balcony to the world outside is cool. Location is not central but town is just 10 – 20 minute walk depending on your perception. The Conference centre is a five minute walk. Restaurants, Take Aways, M&S Food Outlet and a few Bars are 5 minute from apartment. I definitely would come back to Yves’s if it comes up on my Dublin search criteria.

    Bandele2017-03-03T00:00:00Z

    Charlie2016-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • Yves has a clean, comfortable home. The room was nice, but there was loud music playing outside from a local bar until late that night. It was a Saturday night and they sounded like they were having a lot of fun. If I was younger, I would have had fun going down and maybe dancing some. With the window closed, we were able to dull the sound and slept well. The location is great for walking around and seeing the sights. We overall enjoyed our stay and would recommend it others.

    Brandy2017-06-18T00:00:00Z

  • Yves and his girlfriend were very accommodating to our check in time despite a pretty short notice. There is lots of privacy and Yves would chat a little when he gets home. The house is very clean in a very accessible and convenient neighborhood right at the central business district. It was 7 mins walk from the Bus Station, LUAS Tram right at the door steps and just 5 min walk to 747 bus stop to go to Dublin airport. There is M&S, cafes and restaurants around since there are offices and school nearby. It was quiet right after business hours like 8pm. Walkable (10~ mins) walk to Temple Bar area. The room is specious enough for my friend and my own luggages to be opened fully and the bed was comfortable for the 2 of us. There is a large window facing other residential houses (not tall buildings) so the view is pretty good. There is a separate bathroom right outside our room that is very clean and well equipped with hair dryer and towels. Yves was also kind enough to let us use his washing machine, plates and cutlery from the kitchen. It is a very nice and homely apartment and I would recommend to friends to stay too.

  • I booked Jen's place as a surprise for my partners birthday for a long weekend away, it was last minute and I wasn't sure what to expect. The apartment is just north of the river, we found everything was easily within walking distance. The apartment it self was everything I was hoping for. The hosts have really thought about their guests needs when renting out the apartment. We arrived late afternoon, dropped our bags off, looked in the cupboards then headed to the local spa to grab bits for breakfast the next day. The cupboards had coffee etc, ketchups etc...this made our shop much more efficient for the short time we'd be there. We had a couple of questions while we were there, Jen responded immediately to everything. 10/10 for every aspect, brilliant first Airbnb experience, thank you Jen x

The place is easy to locate and the lock box makes it easy to check in at whatever time. the hosts were very communicative and way to get ahold of.

    Good sized double room in an amazing location in the city (most of Dublin's embassy's and 5* hotels are in the area). We are a 10 minute walk to Grafton Street, Trinity College, Grand Canal Dock, Landsdowne Road Stadium, DART train service and tram service. There are also a lot of bus routes outside the front door but mostly you will walk to where you need to go we are so central.

    Our cosy apartment is 20 minutes walk to Temple Bar/City centre. You will be staying in the centre of the Tech Companies: Goo-gle, Face-book and Airbnb! We have a bus stop outside our apartment with buses that will take you to the Centre in a few minutes. Tesco,Spar and other convenience shops close to our place. Grand Canal Area is one of the most nicest and safest area in Dublin. Light breakfast in the kitchen. Help yourself :-)
    Our cosy place is very close to Temple Bar/City Centre. (20 minutes walk or a few minutes by bus) Ringsend/Grand Canal Dock are very nice and safe areas. There a are a lot of restaurants and shops nearby.
    We are pretty easy going couple and enjoy our guests to have fun in Dublin. We will provide information and maps for you to get around the city and the countryside. Just feel free to ask :-)
  • Tania and Patrick were very nice hosts. They were really flexible with the check in and had no problem letting us in even at 11pm. Their flat is nice and tidy and the bed comfortable. It was nice to have a chat in the morning while having breakfast. The location is not a long walk from the city centre. Would recommend staying at theirs again!

    Sara2017-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Tania was great and very communicative, even though I had a lot of trouble contacting her because I was traveling abroad. The room was cozy and quiet and really close to downtown.

    Alicia2017-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • Not only were they both wonderful people, but they greeted us with such kindness and a cup of tea. Tania took us to Trinity College, which was a highlight of our trip!

    Erika2017-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • Tania was a fantastic host! Seeing the book of Kells was such a bonus too. The place is an easy walk to the lively areas of Dublin, but in a quieter area and on the first floor for a quiet nights sleep. I recommend the Porterhouse in Temple Bar for good live music and craft beer. The room was comfy and had some nice touches such as toiletries and had everything we needed. Thanks for an awesome stay in Dublin!

  • Tania's apartment was very clean and cute. She provided us with a variety of breakfast food and tea which we really appreciated. She was very accommodating and a wonderful host!

    Marie2017-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • Tania and Patrick were wonderful, accommodating hosts who went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay. Their apartment was clean, comfortable, and conveniently located just a 10-20 minute walk (or short bus ride) from everything you could want to do in Dublin. Also only 5 minutes from the metro if you want to take an easy trip out of town. Highly recommend.

    Great apartment located on the 3rd floor within one of the best apartment developments in Dublin city. The Gasworks is located close to Grand Canal Square, Merrion Square and a 15 minute walk to the city centre. There are a number of amenities near by such as cafes, restaurants, convenience stores, bars, and so much more. The area has numerous modes of public transport which can provide access to all of Dublin city and suburbs.
  • This is an ideal place to stay if you're traveling to Dublin and your office is nearby. The apartment is cozy, very clean, and very relaxing. Nearby is a wonderful grocery store to pick up some food for your stay and great restaurants are within a 10-minute walk. Would certainly stay here again if work takes me back to Dublin.

  • WOW!! This apartment in Dublin was fabulous. The value for the money is excellent. The apartment is located about 15min from City Center. The location was quiet, close to Dart and bus and very comfortable! There's a Spar (little market) just steps away. Mark and Greg were so accommodating! I absolutely loved our stay! Can't wait to go back!!
