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 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!
  • Il posto di Karins è fantastico con tutto il necessario per un viaggio a Dublino. Il posto è perfettamente pulito e la cucina è molto ben attrezzata. La comunicazione con Karin è stata grandiosa, ci ha persino portato della torta per darci il benvenuto. Consigliamo vivamente di stare con Karin e ci piacerebbe tornare un po 'di tempo. Grazie ancora!

  • Accogliente appartamento accogliente che ti fa sentire parte di Dublino. La posizione è ideale non lontana a piedi da tutto ma con la storia del periodo che gli hotel moderni non offrono.

  • Gioiello assoluto a Dublino! Splendida casa georgiana trasformata in appartamenti. Karin ha aggiunto alcuni tocchi meravigliosi e mi è piaciuto molto stare lì. L'appartamento aveva tutto ciò di cui avevo bisogno e altro ancora. La posizione è facilmente raggiungibile a piedi dalla zona commerciale di Dublins e alcuni ottimi posti dove mangiare. Consiglio vivamente di soggiornare qui, un'ottima scoperta!

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..
  • Bellissimo appartamento a Dublino! Posizione eccezionale e straordinario edificio storico.

    Andrew2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • Il loft era esattamente come descritto e abbiamo trascorso un soggiorno meraviglioso!

    Shelby2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Ho trascorso un soggiorno piacevole e confortevole qui! Questa posizione è anche una facile passeggiata nel cuore di Dublino! Ci sono diversi pub raggiungibili a piedi e per bere durante la notte. Mi piacerebbe molto tornare e di nuovo qui. Karin fornisce una guida approfondita alla città e mi ha reso molto facile navigare e capire cosa volevo fare. Suggerirei di portare i propri asciugamani se si preferisce asciugamani di cotone. Karin fornisce gentilmente gli asciugamani, ma potrebbero essere un po 'graffianti per alcuni. Ho scelto questo Airbnb principalmente perché ha una cucina ed è stata una buona idea! Preparai delle conserve e del pane e mi preparai per i pasti, il che mi è stato di grande aiuto quando sono sceso dall'aereo. Karin fornisce uova, condimenti e tè, il che è stato molto premuroso e mi ha aiutato così tanto! Ricorda di chiudere le tende alberate per la grande finestra, poiché aiuta a mantenere caldo l'appartamento di notte e non a sprecare gas.

    Christina2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Gli appartamenti ovali di Karin sono persino più stupendi di quanto nella foto. Oltre a ciò, Karin è l'host consumato. Ti lascerà da mangiare in frigo, consigli su dove mangiare e cose da fare, e farà il check-in per assicurarsi di avere tutto ciò di cui hai bisogno. Saremmo felici di stare di nuovo con lei in un futuro viaggio a Dublino!

    Francesca2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • Soggiorno favoloso! Ci siamo divertiti così tanto ad esplorare Dublino da qui! Il check-in è stato molto semplice e l'appartamento aveva tutto ciò di cui potevamo avere bisogno, incluso un delizioso pacchetto di benvenuto. Ottimi consigli locali tra cui una società per il brunch e il signor Fox per una cena elegante! Speriamo di tornare!

    Laurence2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Le camere georgiane sono una scoperta molto speciale nella gemma di Mountjoy Square. A meno di dieci minuti a piedi da O'Connell Street, splendidamente arredato e, a Karin, un delizioso padrone di casa. Abbiamo sicuramente intenzione di tornare al più presto.

    Livvy2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Tutto è perfetto!

    Christin2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Non guardare oltre!!! L'appartamento di Karin ha tutto ciò che si possa desiderare e DI PIÙ! Entrando, ti senti come se fossi tornato a casa dopo un lungo viaggio. Accogliente, affascinante e assolutamente delizioso, era onestamente difficile partire per esplorare la città poiché tutto quello che volevo fare era stare qui e rilassarmi davanti al fuoco. Karin aveva uova, burro, succo di mango, marmellate, frutta fresca, tè e caffè tutti in attesa in cucina per colazione e un cestino pieno di legna per accendere un fuoco. La posizione era perfetta. Era ancora nel centro della città, ma era su un isolato tranquillo lontano dal rumore. Non ho mai preso un taxi e ho approfittato della fantastica posizione dell'appartamento, camminando per tutta Dublino 1 e 2. Karin aveva anche una lunga lista di consigli e suggerimenti in termini di ristoranti locali, negozi di alimentari e interessi vicini che mi è stato di grande aiuto. Non potrei raccomandare di più questo appartamento e non vedo l'ora di riaffittarlo al mio prossimo viaggio a Dublino!

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. ATM inside, opens MEDICAL AND DENTAL PRACTICES Mountjoy Medical Practice, Dr. Gerry Roebuck, Dr. Holly Porter (female) Dr. Colm Killeen. 2-3 Baker’s Yard, Portland Street North. Tel (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN). Opening hours 9-1.30 and 3.30-5.30. You can just drop in. €50 per visit. (Five blocks away, going North East) Frederick Dental Clinic, North Frederick Street. 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.

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!
  • Il posto di Karin era assolutamente fenomenale! Mio marito ed io siamo stati qui durante un viaggio in tutta l'Irlanda, e ci è piaciuto molto. Aveva tutto ciò di cui avevamo bisogno per cucinare e un mercato per la spesa. Karin è uno dei migliori host con cui abbiamo mai interagito!

    Taylor2020-03-19T00:00:00Z

    Ed2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • Il posto era perfettamente pulito, arredato in modo confortevole. Così tanti extra. Il loft non è alto, ma nemmeno io. Ho dormito come un agnello. Molto utile con il permesso di lasciare i miei bagagli per il ritiro di un'auto a noleggio. Ha superato le mie aspettative.

    Claire2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • Posso solo secondare tutto quello che ho letto nelle recensioni: questo posto è stato elegante, confortevole e molto divertente per le nostre prime notti a Dublino! È stato molto divertente tornare in questo posto dopo la nostra esplorazione della città a piedi. Karin è una hostess professionista e aveva tutto ciò di cui avevamo bisogno.

    Alyssa2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Ottimo soggiorno, consigliamo questa sistemazione atipica e calorosa. Grazie a Karin per la sua disponibilità.

    Sam2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Ottimo monolocale, spazioso e tutto il necessario per un weekend. Karin è andata ben oltre, permettendo un check-out posticipato e consegnando una banana fresca calda il sabato mattina, oltre a far rifornire il frigorifero di succo fresco, uova, latte e muesli. I lati positivi erano: letto spazioso e confortevole, cucina ben fornita, luminosa e ariosa, calda, facile da raggiungere autobus e biciclette proprio dall'altra parte della strada (che è possibile noleggiare per circa 3 € per 72 ore ed è stato un ottimo modo per spostarsi) , facile comunicazione con l'host, facile check in / out e possibilità di conservare i bagagli dopo il check out. Unico inconveniente potenziale era il rumore della strada leggermente rumoroso (dormiva comunque bene, ma potrebbe essere un problema se dormivi poco) e un po 'fuori dalle principali attrazioni turistiche (cioè 15-20 minuti a piedi; o autobus / ciclo facile) ma questo non ci ha disturbato particolarmente come città molto facile da girare e molti aspetti positivi del posto sicuramente compensati. Ritornerei al 100% e lo consiglierei ad un amico.

    Rosie2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Karin è stata un'ospite meravigliosa! È molto pronta a rispondere, educata, premurosa, premurosa. Si prende davvero cura dei suoi ospiti e li rende felici. Non posso dire abbastanza cose carine sull'ospite meraviglioso. Karin in realtà è stata così gentile da aiutarmi a pianificare il mio ultimo itinerario in Irlanda e ho avuto il miglior tempo !!!!! Il posto è davvero carino, molti servizi, c'erano anche articoli per la colazione, saponi, molto premuroso da parte dell'host da organizzare. È un appartamento molto accogliente, in un'ottima posizione a pochi passi dai trasporti pubblici e vicino a negozi, ristoranti, bar. Devi visitare The Celt !!!!

    Chantal2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • Appartamento assolutamente incredibile non potrei raccomandare altrove! La posizione eccezionale e la stessa strada è uno spettacolo da vedere. Karen è stata davvero d'aiuto e ha persino lasciato alcune cose nel frigorifero e negli armadietti per noi. Karen è stata molto disponibile con il nostro unico problema con l'acqua calda, ma ci ha dato rapidamente accesso a una doccia in un'altra stanza. Il camino era un vero piacere e le piante dappertutto erano un bel tocco. Anche se solo una stanza non si sentiva affatto angusta. Non vedo l'ora di tornarci!

    Zoë2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Il posto di Karin era perfetto per mio marito e il mio soggiorno di tre notti a Dublino. È stato IMMACOLATO (lo apprezzo davvero), in un'ottima posizione (vicino all'azione, ma un quartiere più tranquillo), ed è chiaro che è orgogliosa e si prende cura della proprietà. Era totalmente in cima alla comunicazione (check-in, check-out e durante il nostro soggiorno). È un posto incantevole per una coppia.

    Jessica2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Perfettamente pulito! Un posto delizioso dove stare. Io e mio marito ci sentiamo entrambi incredibilmente a nostro agio. Karin risponde rapidamente e una donna affascinante. Karin ha un opuscolo di cose da fare e ristoranti che sono i suoi preferiti. Tutto ciò che elenca è di prim'ordine. Non volevamo andarcene.

  • Grazie Dwaine per essere un eccellente padrone di casa. Ci siamo trovati benissimo e abbiamo apprezzato particolarmente la tua raccomandazione di andare a Smithfield. La camera da letto era super confortevole e privata e la posizione era buona: solo un breve viaggio in autobus o 25 minuti a piedi dalla città. Lo consiglierei a chiunque desideri uno spazio spazioso e piacevole che abbia anche un eccellente rapporto qualità-prezzo. Se dovessimo tornare, ci piacerebbe rimanere ancora.

  • L'appartamento di Wendy è molto ben posizionato, in una zona tranquilla e vicino al centro di Dublino. È caldo, ben equipaggiato e molto carino. Wendy ci ha accolto con molta attenzione e gentilezza, consigliamo vivamente questo alloggio. Grazie.

    Kari & Christian2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Un posto meraviglioso - Wendy era così accogliente ed è stato un ottimo soggiorno lontano dalla follia del centro di Dublino. Grazie!

    Billy2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Tutto in questo appartamento è meraviglioso. Wendy è cordiale, accogliente e molto disponibile. L'appartamento è situato tra l'aeroporto e il centro. Il quartiere è molto tranquillo. È a circa 20 minuti a piedi dal Trinity College, ma i trasporti pubblici sono vicini e i taxi sono prontamente disponibili se non si desidera camminare. Un taxi da / per l'aeroporto dura circa 20 minuti e costa meno di 25 euro. Wendy ha fornito cibo per la colazione e snack insieme a caffè, tè e succo di frutta. Ha anche fornito molti consigli eccellenti per ristoranti e negozi. Il Cloud Cafe era il luogo ideale per il brunch, a pochi passi di distanza. Da Mimmo era ottimo anche per una pizza quando eravamo stanchi da una lunga giornata di visite turistiche. Il camino era eccezionale, soprattutto da quando abbiamo visitato con tempo piovoso freddo. Ritorneremo sicuramente e consiglieremo Wendy a tutti i nostri amici.

    Steven2019-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • Ottimo appartamento situato in posizione centrale da cui esplorare Dublino. Da Mimmo, il ristorante italiano in cima alla strada, è un must. Cibo e servizio incredibile ma è meglio chiamare in anticipo per una prenotazione. Wendy è un ottimo padrone di casa assicurandosi di avere tutto ciò di cui hai bisogno, comprese le carte di viaggio da utilizzare sui mezzi pubblici. Super confortevole e ti fa sentire come a casa.

    Mark2019-11-06T00:00:00Z
  • Oh Dio, da dove comincio? È stato tutto fantastico. Al di sopra delle aspettative, notevole, meraviglioso. Continua a leggere per i dettagli: Prima di tutto, Wendy è un ospite fantastico. Ci ha fatto sentire i benvenuti, dandoci il benvenuto con focaccine e tè, fornendo personalmente consigli per le esperienze della città in base ai nostri interessi e persino aiutandoci con l'organizzazione del viaggio come ottenere i biglietti per i musei locali e chiamare un taxi per noi quando dovevamo partire per l'aeroporto. Attenzione altamente personalizzata! Assolutamente meraviglioso. E poi c'è l'appartamento stesso! Ottima cucina - un sacco di spazio per cucinare i propri pasti con un piccolo negozio di alimentari proprio lungo la strada a pochi passi. Il camino è stato così piacevole durante le fredde serate di ottobre che abbiamo trascorso lì. Il letto era comodo e tutto era molto pulito! Anche la posizione è ottima. Abbastanza lontana dalla città che non è rumorosa ma abbastanza vicina da farti pagare un autobus / tram nel cuore di Dublino solo per ca. € 2,50 a tratta. Wendy ci ha anche fornito dei biglietti da visita che hanno reso il trasporto pubblico un metodo di pendolarismo facile e senza stress (perché i taxi sono carini ma costano molto!). 10/10 consiglia posto di Wendy!

    Thea2019-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • Ottimo appartamento Abbiamo adorato la nostra visita e Wendy è stata un'ospite fantastica. A circa 20 minuti a piedi dalla parte centrale di Dublino. Il sistema di autobus è eccezionale. Molto facile da usare Di notte, consiglierei un taxi per tornare all'appartamento soprattutto per le donne che viaggiano da sole. Il viaggio alla luce del giorno andava bene da solo a piedi o in autobus. Grazioso appartamento!

    Maureen2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Wendy ha reso il nostro soggiorno a Dublino davvero piacevole. Ci ha aiutato ad apprezzare la città prendendoci il tempo di informarci delle varie attività in base ai nostri interessi. Ci ha anche contattato frequentemente in modo da trovare facilmente l'appartamento. La sistemazione è fantastica, molto grande, molto ben arredata e situata vicino ai principali punti di interesse e ai trasporti pubblici. Consigliamo vivamente questo alloggio!

    Sébastien2019-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • Sicuramente il miglior Airbnb in cui ho alloggiato. Wendy è stato molto disponibile con il check-in anche se siamo arrivati all'una di notte. La casa è molto bella e confortevole. Sembrava accogliente ed elegante. Tutto ciò di cui avevamo bisogno era disponibile e ci sentivamo come a casa. Non ho letteralmente niente di negativo da dire, tutto era semplicemente perfetto! Wendy è un anfitrione eccezionale. Ci ha accolti dopo una lunga giornata di lavoro e di viaggio ed è una persona molto simpatica nel complesso. Abbiamo adorato quanto sia premurosa e disponibile.

  • Una famiglia davvero gentile e accogliente che ha reso il nostro soggiorno piacevole e perfetto :)

  • Il posto di Klaudia era eccellente! Molto pulito, e ottima posizione con circa 5 minuti a piedi dalla stazione di Clongriffin.

    Hannah2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Una stanza davvero bella ma un po 'lontana dal centro della città. Klaudia è un ospite eccezionale.

    Elena2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Posto tranquillo e pulito. Padroni di casa molto piacevoli e calorosi. Comunicare e ascoltare i bisogni!

    Sébastien2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Ottimo posto per i viaggiatori (molto sicuro), e vicino alla fermata dell'autobus e al treno. Circa 20 minuti dal centro città con il treno e 35 minuti con l'autobus. Il loft era perfettamente pulito e ben attrezzato. I padroni di casa sono persone meravigliose e adorano consigliare alcuni posti locali. Consiglio vivamente questo soggiorno. Appena fuori città abbastanza da allontanarsi dal brusio ma più che abbastanza vicino per andare in città e in altre città ogni giorno. Anche il cane Pogo era uno dei preferiti, fa sentire il soggiorno come a casa. Grazie per aver reso il nostro viaggio a Dublino un'esperienza straordinaria!

    Theo2019-12-11T00:00:00Z
  • Vicino alla stazione ferroviaria nel centro della città. Pulito e spazioso!

    Melissa2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Il posto di Klaudia era accogliente, spazioso e perfettamente pulito. Non abbiamo avuto occasione di incontrare Klaudia, ma sua figlia è stata molto accogliente. Klaudia è stata molto gentile quando abbiamo comunicato con lei tramite messaggi e ci siamo assicurati che il nostro soggiorno fosse fantastico. Il loro cane Pogo è stata un'aggiunta molto amichevole! La stazione ferroviaria era a pochi minuti a piedi e raggiungere il centro città era molto facile. Ritornerei sicuramente.

    Sylyanne2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • La casa è bellissima molto grande, i padroni di casa sono molto amichevoli e amorevoli, hanno lavato i nostri vestiti, sono un sole dal cielo. Una famiglia adorabile è stata molto piacevole essere ospiti della loro casa e la cosa migliore della casa è il cucciolo ❤❤

    Dublino, Irlanda

    Spacious self contained studio in a quiet neighborhood only 15minutes from the airport, direct bus routes to the city centre only 40minutes away and a 5minute walk from local supermarket.
    Bright and airy studio with WIFI, own private entrance to studio at side of main house, situated in a cul de sac this area is very safe!
    Our neighborhood has the best of both worlds it is away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre but near enough too it for when you want to explore, dine or socialise. There is direct bus routes straight into the city centre right outside our estate. Only ten minutes up the road is the lovely Malahide village which has wonderful restaurants to choose from. We also have Howth close by a beautiful village by the sea with loads to see and do there...you can get to Howth by the dart which is a 20minute walk away.
  • Perfetto. Rapporto qualità-prezzo molto buono. È molto vicino all'aeroporto e c'è un autobus dall'hotel Hilton che ti porta e ti porta per € 3, quindi puoi fare un'escursione a Belfast prendendo gli autobus dall'aeroporto e risparmierai molto tempo. È anche un po 'lontano dal centro un po' lontano dal centro ma c'è un autobus ogni 10 'e in 30' ti lascia al centro. Inoltre, gli autobus hanno due altezze e se ti alzi in prima fila hai viste panoramiche che non ti fanno strada.

    Ignacio2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Grazie per il tuo consiglio, dandoci spazio e il tocco davvero premuroso di far emergere un riscaldamento supplementare mentre si sostituisce il radiatore. La tua proprietà è situata in una tenuta davvero incantevole che non è molto lontana dal vivace centro cittadino. Non possiamo ringraziarti abbastanza. Una volta che ci siamo concentrati sul servizio di autobus (un piccolo suggerimento ha un cambio esatto che non accetta note sull'autobus). È stato tutto semplice. Lo studio è perfetto per un visitatore del fine settimana nella bellissima città. Il check-in è molto semplice e funziona bene per tutte le parti. Comunicare con Ciara è stato geniale come un semplice WhatsApp e una risposta davvero rapida. Ritorneremo sicuramente quando visiteremo l'Irlanda. Grazie ancora :)

    DanylJoe2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Ciara era un ospite molto gentile e premuroso. La sistemazione ha un ingresso separato che è bello, ma è piccolo e non più moderno. Soprattutto il bagno avrebbe bisogno di un restyling. Ci vogliono circa 40 minuti di autobus per il centro di Dublino. Ci sono supermercati nelle vicinanze che era fantastico. L'aeroporto è a 10 minuti in auto, oppure prendi la navetta del bus per 5 € e la raggiungi in circa 15 minuti. Tutto sommato tutto andava bene.

    Sina2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Luogo perfetto dove soggiornare con facile accesso a Dublino in autobus. C'è tutto il necessario in casa ed è molto calmo! Lo consiglio :) Grazie!

    Diana2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • Siamo stati bene a Ciara. La sistemazione era calda e accogliente. Ciara è molto gentile e disponibile.

    Doreen2019-11-27T00:00:00Z
  • Un posto incantevole, ben posizionato con tutto il confort di una casetta. Chiuso al centro città e Howth! Grazie Ciara per la tua cordiale accoglienza e buoni consigli, torneremo :)

    Charlotte2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • Un posto perfetto dove soggiornare mentre esplori Dublino e i suoi dintorni. Alloggio molto indipendente dal momento che hai la tua cabina e le chiavi per entrare in modo da poter andare e venire come preferisci. Ciara è molto ospitale e risponderà a qualsiasi domanda in modo rapido e utile. È vicino sia agli autobus che ai treni, quindi anche se non è centrale puoi facilmente raggiungere Dublino e altri villaggi circostanti. Il WiFi funziona ma può variare leggermente. Strutture e letto molto puliti e carini. Consiglio vivamente a chiunque visiti Dublino.

  • Siamo stati accolti da Paul e ci ha dato un caloroso benvenuto. La cabina era molto calda e perfettamente pulita. Paul aveva persino rifornito il frigorifero in modo che potessimo goderci una tazza di tè. Un soggiorno breve ma molto piacevole e confortevole. Consiglio vivamente questo posto

    Eva2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • La cabina di Paul è un piccolo spazio per una notte e aveva tutti i comfort di cui avevamo bisogno. La strada fuori è un po 'rumorosa, ma abbiamo solo immaginato che fosse un fiume. Il check-in è stato semplicissimo e Paul è un anfitrione eccezionale.

    Karma2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • L'accogliente baita era immacolata e letteralmente a pochi passi dall'autobus di 15 minuti nel centro di Dublino. Paul è un ospite molto disponibile e gentile e ha reso il nostro viaggio da sogno in Irlanda assolutamente fantastico!

    Audra2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • La mia famiglia e io abbiamo avuto un'esperienza meravigliosa con Paul. Mi è stato di grande aiuto per qualsiasi domanda avessi, fornito pass per l'autobus e ci ha persino fornito un passaggio per l'aeroporto la mattina della partenza. Era un ospite molto gentile e generoso. Consiglio vivamente di soggiornare in questo posto. Grazie Paul per aver fornito un posto così fantastico per il nostro soggiorno in Irlanda.

    Maria2019-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • Il posto di Paul rende un breve soggiorno economico e conveniente vicino all'aeroporto. Il parcheggio e il check-in sono stati facili e le comunicazioni sono state tempestive e utili. Ristoranti e generi alimentari nelle vicinanze. Riscaldatori di spazio disponibili che funzionano in modo efficiente. Ottimo rapporto qualità-prezzo e posizione comoda.

    Alex2019-12-19T00:00:00Z
  • Molto bene a Dublino. Questa cabina è ideale per due coppie. Consiglio vivamente.

    Audrey2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Strutture molto belle. 2 camere (4 pax), soggiorno con angolo cottura. Tutto elettrico, acqua calda, riscaldamento, forno, apliances, ecc. TV con molti canali disponibili. Altamente raccomandato!

    Rui2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • Era molto ben raccolto e pulito, non è molto grande ma è sufficiente per rendere la vita di base e si riscalda molto rapidamente. L'autobus che ti porta al centro è molto vicino (se hai intenzione di prendere un autobus, non hai monete sugli autobus) e c'è anche un negozio di alimentari e una farmacia nelle vicinanze. Si è comportato molto bene con Paul. È stato un buon posto per dormire ed essere calmo.

  • L'appartamento era pulito, sembrava proprio come nelle foto, aveva tutto ciò di cui una casa ha bisogno. Il quartiere era carino e tranquillo. Il riscaldamento era perfetto e nel caso ci fosse un piccolo riscaldatore aggiuntivo. Amanda è stata molto gentile e ci ha risposto immediatamente se avevamo bisogno di qualcosa. Completamente raccomandato

    Ernesto2020-03-08T00:00:00Z

  • Buona quantità di spazio per una settimana o un weekend a Dublino. A circa 5 minuti a piedi dalla fermata dell'autobus che ti porterà in città (assicurati di ottenere una carta dell'autobus). Camere pulite e servizi, area incredibilmente carina e Amanda e Paul erano sempre lì per offrire una mano. Fa un po 'freddo nelle camere ma è pieno inverno, quindi cosa puoi fare. Consiglio vivamente questo posto.

    Antonella2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Il luogo privato e indipendente è esattamente ciò che sembra. Come un piccolo monolocale. Molto accogliente, confortevole e caldo. La parte anteriore del bnb è una bella zona di relax che sarebbe abbastanza buona per rilassarsi durante l'estate. Non sono riuscito a provarlo perché lo abbiamo noleggiato durante un weekend burrascoso. La connessione Wifi funziona alla grande. Il forno con le padelle è tutto lì se vuoi cucinare qualcosa da solo. Probabilmente lo proverò di nuovo nella stagione estiva!

    Gytis2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Il posto di Amanda è perfetto per chi viaggia da solo o in coppia ed è in un'ottima posizione per spostarsi. Super facile da fare il check-in e arrivarci. Lo consiglierei a chiunque voglia rimanere in pace fuori dal CBD principale

    Jai2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Abbiamo apprezzato molto questo soggiorno! La casa è molto ben posizionata, in una zona tranquilla, vicino al centro in autobus, ea 10 minuti dall'aeroporto dal taxi. L'unica cosa non così buona che abbiamo trovato è stata la doccia, che abbiamo dovuto aspettare almeno mezz'ora per fare un bagno, e aspettare un'altra metà per l'altra persona per fare un bagno, e abbiamo ottenuto acqua fredda una volta. .. ma ci siamo ancora divertiti, perché era una cosa che potevamo controllare e gestire, e il resto era semplicemente perfetto. Grazie di tutto!

    André2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Buon posto dove stare. Pulito, in una zona molto tranquilla, vicino alla fermata dell'autobus per il centro città

  • Ottima posizione non lontano da Dublino e buoni collegamenti in autobus. L'alloggio è ottimo per due, spazio e tutte le attrezzature necessarie per soggiornare. Tutte le risposte che ci chiediamo quando andiamo in viaggio ci hanno risposto gli host che hanno preparato un file con molte informazioni (trasporto, luoghi visitati, negozio ...) e sono sempre disponibili se abbiamo domande. Abbiamo trascorso un soggiorno molto piacevole laggiù, non ho esitato ad affittare.

    Élodie2019-11-01T00:00:00Z

  • Il posto era incantevole e solo una breve corsa in autobus dalla città. Posizione perfetta per una gita di un giorno a Howth e per visitare Dublino. Il divano letto era comodo e la cucina era perfetta per ciò di cui avevamo bisogno. Bella posizione, buon prezzo, ne vale la pena.

    The accommodation is a private flat off our main house which can be accessed from a side gate. We are in a residential area approximately 15 minutes from the airport and close to 2 direct bus routes into the city. Approximately 15 minutes walk from Clongriffin Dart Station. Shopping centre with Dunnes Stores and post office within walking distance. Central location for the lovely areas of Malahide, Howth and Portmarnock.
    15 minutes from the airport. Great access to local transport- 29a & 15 bus into City. Lovely local park nearby - Father Collins Park. Walking distance to supermarket and post office in a local shopping centre.
    Residential area with good transport links to the city. Good for an overnight stay for the airport, a weekend in Dublin or a longer stay to explore the area. Near to Portmarnock for those enjoying the beach, near to Malahide for pubs, restaurants and Malahide Castle. Also near to Swords which has Swords Castle and Pavillions Shopping Centre.
  • Alloggio pulito e accogliente con una camera da letto con buoni collegamenti in autobus e treno con il centro di Dublino.

  • Ottimo posto dove stare - davvero caloroso benvenuto!

    Jonathan2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • La settimana che ho trascorso a casa di Frances è stata meravigliosa. La sua casa si trova in un sobborgo residenziale a 7 km dal centro di Dublino, e puoi arrivarci con l'autobus n. 29a o con il treno DART. Entrambi sono piuttosto affollati nelle ore di punta. Il vantaggio della casa di Frances è che è molto silenzioso (niente traffico all'esterno, nemmeno gente per strada) e ci vivi quasi come un membro della famiglia con Frances, suo marito Dave e un simpatico cagnolino. Frances si preoccupa molto del tuo benessere, proprio come lo sarebbe tua madre o tua nonna ;-)

    Steffen2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • Ottima ospitalità da Frances, mi è piaciuto molto stare.

    Aisling2020-01-09T00:00:00Z

    Sukjin2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Ho soggiornato a casa di Frances per 3 notti e posso dire che sembrava di essere a casa. Frances e suo marito sono persone molto positive e gentili, erano disposti ad aiutare con consigli su come arrivare ovunque a Dublino. Consiglio vivamente Frances come host!

    Alina2019-12-30T00:00:00Z

  • Accogliente piccola cabina in un tranquillo sobborgo di Dublino. 20 minuti in taxi per l'aeroporto, e una breve passeggiata per la fermata dell'autobus per il centro. Il posto era molto pulito, le lenzuola erano morbide. Il riscaldatore funziona incredibilmente bene e ha riscaldato il posto in meno di 20 minuti. Comunicazione semplice, facile da trovare, tutto sommato un ottimo soggiorno.

    Tori2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • Siamo stati un fine settimana alla cabina di Amanda. È stato facilissimo da trovare e anche la comunicazione è stata semplicissima. Sebbene fosse quasi Natale, il riscaldamento era piuttosto caldo. Per andare al centro di Dublino ci sono voluti circa 30 a 40 minuti di autobus. La sera ci aspettava la calda e accogliente cabina. Se torniamo a Dublino ci torneremmo.

    Ann-Kathrin2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • La casetta in legno più meravigliosa, molto pulita e ordinata. Riscaldamento a gas che era eccezionale e riscaldamento elettrico in camera da letto. Tutto ciò di cui hai bisogno in uno spazio così piccolo e accogliente. Bollitore, fornello, frigorifero ecc. E caffè e tutti gli utensili da cucina. Vorrei che fossimo rimasti più a lungo!

    Beth2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • Le risposte sono state molto veloci e il check-in è stato molto semplice. C'era una bottiglia di acqua calda sul letto per la notte di pioggia e la cabina era molto accogliente :) Ho avuto un po 'di problemi a capire come l'acqua nella doccia, ma nel complesso è stato davvero piacevole il nostro soggiorno!

  • Ospitalità e servizio di eccezionale qualità e brillantezza

    Chris2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Il posto di Shumei è stato molto bello. Sua figlia mi ha incontrato al check-in e mi ha aiutato con i miei bagagli fino alla mia camera. La sua famiglia è stata molto gentile. La stanza era pulita e spaziosa. È uno a 2 minuti a piedi dalla fermata dell'autobus da casa. L'autobus arrivava nel centro di Dublino circa tre o quattro volte all'ora e impiegava circa 30 o 40 minuti per arrivare in città. Mi è sembrato conveniente e facile arrivare in centro. C'è anche un centro commerciale a circa 12-15 minuti a piedi da casa di Shumei se vuoi prendere degli spuntini. Inoltre ho sentito che il prezzo della camera era molto conveniente. Anche se vicino all'aeroporto, non credo che un autobus corra da casa loro all'aeroporto, quindi dovrai prendere un taxi. Ho chiamato un taxi e lasciato la mattina e mi è costato circa 20 euro per raggiungere l'aeroporto.

  • È stato bellissimo stare con persone fantastiche in giro. Bernadette è una persona gentile e disponibile. Mi sentivo come a casa. Ci sarò di nuovo totalmente. 10/10

    Tomas2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Adoro stare al tuo posto! Una casa piena d'amore. Mi piacerebbe molto tornare. sono andato a visitare grandi aziende, ma il tempo a casa AirBnb è stato meraviglioso come le mie ragioni per cui ci sono arrivato. non vedo l'ora di tornarci e avrei garantito il soggiorno nel posto di Bernadettes. Amy il cane più meraviglioso e carino sarà nel mio cuore proprio come la famiglia Bernadette, mi sentivo come uno di famiglia in quei 3 meravigliosi giorni in cui ho soggiornato lì. tutte le informazioni che ho ricevuto anche prima di andare sono state d'aiuto a me e al mio gruppo di 17 persone perché nessuno aveva informazioni così buone come quelle della mia adorabile famiglia Airbnb. non vedo l'ora di tornarci!

    Rassmus2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • La mia prima sistemazione Airbnb in assoluto e non potrebbe essere migliore. Immediatamente dopo l'arrivo ho ricevuto una tazza di tè, toast e ottimi consigli di viaggio da Bernadette. Lei è stata molto disponibile dal momento della prenotazione fino alla fine del mio soggiorno a Dublino. House si trova abbastanza dal centro (in una zona tranquilla), ma questo non è un problema grazie ai grandi trasporti pubblici in città. Anche io ho adorato il cane Amy, che è stato amichevole sin dalla prima volta che l'ho incontrata :) .. Se mai dovessi andare a Dublino in futuro, sarei così felice di incontrare di nuovo Bernie e la sua famiglia!

    Martin2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • Bernie è una vera signora e la sua ospitalità non conosce limiti. Offre una casa molto accogliente che offre tutto il necessario e molto altro! Molti piccoli tocchi adorabili che lo rendono un posto davvero fantastico. Pulitissimo e un eccellente rapporto qualità-prezzo - lo consiglio vivamente!

    Grace2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • La stanza è piccola ma super pulita e accogliente, con caffè e tè tutto il giorno. Anche la cucina è ben attrezzata. Bernadette è assolutamente meravigliosa. Mi piace molto stare lì. Mi fa sentire che sto visitando mia zia in Irlanda. A volte non voglio nemmeno andare in centro, voglio solo stare a casa e passare del tempo con lei e la sua adorabile cagnolina Amy! Grazie per avermi ospitato calorosamente!

    Lola2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Per un'esperienza sociale, questo è il posto che fa per te! Normalmente non scrivo recensioni di Airbnb, ma questo caso è un'eccezione perché è stato davvero incredibile. Stare con Bernadette e Martin è stata l'esperienza più straordinaria che abbia mai avuto su un Airbnb. La loro gentilezza e ospitalità sono praticamente senza pari. Per tutti i viaggiatori che vogliono incontrare gente del posto e divertirsi conversando davanti a un tè o una birra, questo è il posto che fa per te! Faranno di tutto per assicurarsi che la tua esperienza a Dublino sia la migliore che possa essere, fornendo non solo una stanza meravigliosa, ma anche consigli di viaggio grandi e utili che rendono il viaggio in città un gioco da ragazzi. Sono davvero alcune delle persone migliori che tu abbia mai incontrato e sono molto fortunato di aver scelto questo posto come alloggio durante il mio breve soggiorno a Dublino. Quando ritorno a Dublino, ci tornerò sicuramente. Grazie mille, Bernie e Martin!

  • Sono venuto a Dublino dall'Italia senza prenotare un alloggio. Ho prenotato la camera quando sono arrivato e Flore mi ha risposto in un minuto! Ho soggiornato in questa casa solo per una notte ma ho apprezzato appieno l'ospitalità del padrone di casa. Consiglio vivamente questa camera tranquilla e accogliente!

  • La casa Flores si trova in una zona periferica di Dublino. puoi raggiungere il centro città in circa 30 minuti se il traffico non è male. la casa in sé sembra piccola fuori ma in realtà è molto grande dentro. la stanza e la casa erano pulite e accoglienti. la stanza aveva anche un adattatore per le prese UE (era l'unica volta in cui abbiamo trovato un adattatore nelle stanze che era bello) ci è piaciuto molto flore, è una signora amichevole e lei vuole davvero aiutarti con tutti i tuoi problemi. grazie per averci ospitato :)

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

    Christine2019-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • Mary's Place è al 100%. Mi ha detto che il materasso era comodo e non mentiva! Sono stato accolto da Mary e abbiamo fatto una bella chiacchierata, soprattutto il fatto che forse non ha vinto Sam! Userò felicemente di nuovo Mary. PS, il cane è assolutamente stupendo.

La nostra camera era bella, spaziosa e pulita e la distanza dalla stazione degli autobus, dalla stazione di benzina, da McDonald's e dal centro commerciale è a soli 5 minuti a piedi. Non vediamo l'ora di tornare al nostro prossimo viaggio in Irlanda!

    Nicky2019-08-16T00:00:00Z
  • Dessy è un padrone di casa gentile. Siamo stati una notte a casa loro, perché sono molto vicini all'aeroporto e abbiamo avuto un volo molto presto. Dessy ci portò anche all'aeroporto, a un prezzo equo, per il quale siamo davvero grati. Il quartiere è incantevole e puoi raggiungere la loro casa dal centro città con l'autobus 29a, davvero facile. Li consiglierei per la loro grande ospitalità.

    Iulia2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • Dessy è un ospite molto gentile e disponibile. Se hai bisogno di consigli per i tuoi viaggi, chiediglielo! Offre anche la colazione gratuita con una varietà di cereali, pane, marmellata, frutta, ecc. Che era molto bella. La nostra camera era perfetta per noi, poiché aveva due letti, un tavolino con sedia e abbastanza spazio per i nostri vestiti e cose. C'è un parcheggio gratuito nella strada di fronte alla casa, se vieni in auto e c'è una fermata dell'autobus in 5 minuti a piedi se vuoi andare a Dublino, che abbiamo preferito a causa del traffico e della situazione dei parcheggi nella centro città. Un centro commerciale, McDonald's e una stazione di benzina anche a 5 minuti a piedi offrono tutto il necessario. Nel centro commerciale è anche possibile acquistare una tessera per saltare che è molto utile se si desidera passare ma l'autobus più spesso.

    Nicky2019-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • Dessy è molto amichevole e ci ha dato molti consigli. La stanza era pulita e bella. La posizione dell'appartamento era molto buona.

  • Sharon è un padrone di casa fantastico !! È super cordiale e accogliente, il suo posto è molto pulito ed è a meno di cinque minuti a piedi dalla stazione DART. Consiglio vivamente di soggiornare qui!

    Becca2019-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • Grande valore in una posizione perfetta, un paio di minuti dalla stazione Dart. Sharon e la sua famiglia sono tutti caldi e buonissimi, il posto era super pulito. Puoi fare colazione al mattino e tutto per cucinare sul posto. Il letto era comodo e la camera aveva tutto il necessario. Posso solo raccomandare! Grazie Sharon!

    Louise2019-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • La stanza proposta da Sharon è molto adatta per un viaggiatore singolo. Il vantaggio principale di questo alloggio è l'accoglienza di alta qualità offerta da Sharon. Le sue qualità umane e quelle della sua famiglia ti metteranno a tuo agio. La casa ha tutto il necessario e c'è un supermercato a 10 minuti. Ci sono anche molti parchi intorno alla casa e ovviamente il DART (metro) è molto vicino. molte grazie

    Sofian2018-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • Il posto di Sharon è convenientemente situato vicino al DART in un quartiere tranquillo e caratteristico. Il posto è esattamente come pubblicizzato; la stanza è pulita e confortevole e perfetta per chi viaggia da solo. Sharon va anche al di sopra e al di là, offrendo la colazione ogni mattina, accompagnata da un caffè o da tè per tutti i gusti. Dal momento in cui ho effettuato una prenotazione, Sharon era super dolce e ha mostrato durante tutto il mio soggiorno. È estremamente sensibile alle mie domande e ha fornito consigli e raccomandazioni locali (oltre a molte delle mappe e delle guide che ha nella stanza). Mi ha persino aiutato a chiamare i taxi per la mattina presto, quando i treni non correvano. Sharon e suo marito sono esilaranti e mi è piaciuto ascoltare le loro storie - quando dicono che fai parte della famiglia, lo dicono sul serio. Consiglio vivamente il posto di Sharon come posto dove stare se viaggiate da soli, in cerca di relativa convenienza, e ha bisogno di pace e tranquillità. Se dovessi tornare a Dublino, sicuramente cercherò prima il posto di Sharon. Anche se non riesco a ottenerlo, probabilmente farei un viaggio nella sua zona per salutare comunque. Sharon - grazie mille per la tua meravigliosa ospitalità; la mia esperienza a Dublino è stata fantastica, ma l'hai resa meravigliosa.

    Phoebe2018-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • Sharon e la sua famiglia sono dei padroni di casa eccezionali, molto disponibili e accoglienti! La camera è incantevole, molto pratica e pulita.

La casa è molto ben situata, a pochi passi dal mare, e il centro città si trova a breve distanza in autobus o treno. Consiglio vivamente il posto di Sharon!

    Mathilde2018-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Consiglio vivamente di stare con Sharon e Mick, ti fanno sentire caldo e accogliente. Mi è piaciuto molto il mio tempo con loro a Dublino.

    Stephen2018-08-09T00:00:00Z
  • Vicino al transito e ai servizi, il posto di Sharon è un luogo perfetto dove soggiornare a Dublino. Lei è così gentile e mi ha fatto sentire parte della famiglia.

    Brian2018-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • Sharon e la sua famiglia sono stati dei padroni di casa fantastici, estremamente accoglienti, cordiali e sempre dovresti avere qualche domanda sulla città. La casa è incantevole e situata a meno di un minuto a piedi dalla stazione ferroviaria di Howth Junction, che può portarti direttamente nella città, che è l'ideale! Ci tornerei sicuramente se fossi a Dublino. 5 stelle

  • Il mio soggiorno da Clare è stato fantastico. Chiara era un ospite così premuroso, gentile e caloroso. Senza dubbio uno dei migliori soggiorni AirBnB che ho avuto. Chiara si prende davvero cura dei suoi ospiti e fa di tutto per renderli i benvenuti e godersi il loro soggiorno. Il posto è situato convenientemente - è solo 20 minuti di autobus dal centro della città. Tranquillo, elegante e super pulito. È una scoperta rara e consiglio vivamente questo posto.

    Aru2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Mi è davvero piaciuto stare da Clare per alcuni giorni. Il posto era pulito, con una buona posizione (non troppo lontano dal centro città, e circa 5-10 minuti a piedi dal parco di Saint Anne e dal mare). Chiara è una signora adorabile, ti darà molti consigli e raccomandazioni se sei nuovo in città.

    Alex2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Un posto carino e accogliente nella città di Dublino. Chiara è una benedizione per chiunque nel mondo.

    Abhinav2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Aspettati un ragazzo molto accogliente. Un ambiente pulito e ordinato e una mano molto utile quando ne hai bisogno. Siate maturi, rispettosi e responsabili e il vostro soggiorno sarà memorabile.

    Chris2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Clare è stata sicuramente una delle migliori host che abbia mai incontrato in tutti i miei soggiorni su Airbnb. Mi sono sentita benvenuta di essere a casa sua e lei ha gentilmente accontentato al mio orribile programma. È stato fantastico allontanarsi dalla follia del centro città ogni notte e riposarsi in pace nel suo tranquillo quartiere. Non solo consiglio di stare a casa sua, ma è qui che alloggerò la prossima volta che andrò a Dublino.

    Sujie2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • Chiara è una signora molto gentile. Mi ha persino offerto un piccolo giro in auto fino alla fermata dell'autobus. La casa si trova in una zona tranquilla vicino al parco e al mare. La vista sul mare è mozzafiato. La posizione della casa è anche vicino alla fermata dell'autobus, molto comoda!

    Maggie2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Chiara è fantastica e la sua casa era incredibile !! Era così dolce e gentile e offriva ottimi suggerimenti tra cui andare nella città di Howth !! La mia esperienza è stata la migliore!

    Audrey2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Chiara è davvero disponibile e la sistemazione era piccola, ma assolutamente pulita con tutti i comfort necessari. Consiglio vivamente questo posto per un breve soggiorno in Contarf!

    Terry2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Posto bellissimo e accogliente! Tocchi premurosi. La posizione non è ideale ma il posto in sé è davvero confortevole.

    Carolina2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Il posto è perfetto per una coppia o una persona che desidera un posto privato con un ottimo rapporto qualità-prezzo. È abbastanza accessibile con i mezzi pubblici a pochi passi di distanza. Potrei raggiungere la parte centrale di Dublino in 30 minuti usando un autobus. È ben fornito di tutto il necessario. È piccolo e accogliente, e soprattutto privato con la propria porta. Adoro rimanere di nuovo se mi capita di viaggiare di nuovo in Irlanda.

    Ramachandra2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • Che delizioso appartamento indipendente in una zona tranquilla vicino all'aeroporto e non lontano dal centro, sono qui per lavoro ma sicuramente proverò a prenotarlo quando il clima sarà più caldo per andare a Dublino

    Martin2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Appartamento perfettamente pulito, ben arredato con tocchi deliziosi come cibo per la colazione. Donna è stata rapida nel rispondere e molto disponibile nelle richieste. Sarei felice di tornarci.

    Siobhan2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • Siamo stati qui prima di volare fuori dall'aeroporto di Dublino! Questo posto è a soli cinque minuti in taxi ed era super pulito e i padroni di casa erano incredibili! Non tornerei mai più in un hotel fuori Dublino con questo posto altrettanto vicino!

    Catherine2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Mi è piaciuto molto il nostro soggiorno qui! Ci siamo sentiti così ben accolti e ci siamo trovati benissimo.

    Allison2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • Il posto di Donna era adorabile! Il mio ragazzo e io siamo stati qui per un paio di giorni a seguito di un intenso viaggio in Irlanda. Avevamo bisogno di un po 'di relax e questo è esattamente ciò che abbiamo ottenuto grazie alla meravigliosa ospitalità e ad un appartamento accogliente. È comodamente vicino a un autobus che porta direttamente al centro città e all'aeroporto. Il check-in è stato super facile e accogliente. Il nostro volo è stato un po 'più tardi nella giornata, quindi Donna ci ha lasciato un paio d'ore dopo il solito orario di check out. Soggiorno senza stress con nient'altro che buone cose da dire! Altamente raccomandato!

    Jiri2019-11-24T00:00:00Z

  • Consiglierei il posto di Denis a chiunque abbia bisogno di un posto a Dublino. Il suo Airbnb era perfettamente dimensionato per 2 persone. Denis è stato utile e ci ha permesso di lasciare i nostri bagagli con sé prima del check-in, questo è stato utile perché volevamo esplorare Dublino ma non portare le nostre enormi borse in giro. Lo spazio era pulito e caldo!

    Ruby2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • Dennis è un padrone di casa davvero gentile. Tutto pulito, tutto lì! Peccato che fosse la nostra ultima fermata ...

    Joachim2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Siamo stati benissimo! Le foto non hanno catturato quanto sia accogliente il posto. È molto vicino al treno e le tariffe dei treni erano a un prezzo molto buono. Abbiamo pagato circa € 6 per due singoli. La cucina era ben attrezzata con cereali e caffè. Consigliamo vivamente questo soggiorno, per la sua comodità, pulizia e comfort!

    Sarah2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Spazio molto comodo. Caldo e di facile accesso. Molto vicino alla stazione e quindi a 20 minuti dalla città. Denis è stato fantastico e ci torneremo più a lungo la prossima volta ed esplorare la zona di più. Facile parcheggio in strada.

    Leona2019-12-14T00:00:00Z
  • Piccolo posto fantastico appena fuori Dublino. Letteralmente a 2 minuti dalla stazione e 15 minuti per raggiungere il centro città. Il posto era ben attrezzato con molti servizi. Ci tornerei. Anche un simpatico cagnolino.

    Daniel2019-12-06T00:00:00Z
  • Bella posizione in un quartiere tranquillo, a circa un minuto a piedi dalla stazione ferroviaria più vicina. Bel cane

    Charles2019-11-07T00:00:00Z

    Michael2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Ho usato Air B & B per alcuni anni ed è di gran lunga la migliore ospitalità che ho avuto. Il nome Super Host non potrebbe essere più appropriato per descrivere questa meravigliosa signora e l'incredibile ospitalità irlandese che ho ricevuto. Solo una signora davvero adorabile, orgogliosa di casa, con i piedi per terra, divertente e disponibile. Rimarrà sicuramente in contatto e speriamo di rimanere di nuovo con lei in futuro (se lei mi avrà ovviamente lol!) Da casa a casa ! Grazie Imelda x

    Daniel2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Imelda era un'ospite molto accogliente e la sua casa era davvero bella! Mi ha assicurato che conoscevo i percorsi più semplici in giro, mi ha suggerito siti da vedere e luoghi da visitare che erano dei fantastici gioielli nascosti, mi è piaciuto molto il mio soggiorno e se stai cercando un posto dove stare a Dublino ti consiglio vivamente il suo, grazie ancora Imelda!

    Korey2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Imelda è un anfitrione eccezionale. Era alla porta per ricevermi, sono stato accolto calorosamente e sono stato brevemente informato dove tutto è. Il posto è tranquillo. Ottimo per 1 persona. Camera e casa sono molto pulite e ben tenute. Avevo bisogno di un convertitore di spina per il caricabatterie che era già lì. Altamente raccomandato!

    Humayun2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Imelda ha una casa deliziosa. Facile raggiungere la strada principale per i mezzi pubblici o ordinare un taxi. Buon rapporto qualità prezzo!

    Clare2020-02-09T00:00:00Z

    HoYong2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Imelda è una grande schiera e fa di tutto per far sentire i suoi ospiti a casa. La posizione è un po 'lontana dal centro città, ma il centro città è facilmente accessibile da lì.

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

    The house is a terraced house in a quiet cul de sac in Dublin, just 10 min away from the airport by car or taxi and 20 min away from the city centre by bus. There is a bus stop 3 min away by foot where one can take a bus to the city centre every 5-10 minutes. There are groceries, pharmacy and places to grab food 2 min away by foot. The house has a kitchen, a living room, two bathrooms and a back garden, all of which I am happy to share with guests.
    I live on my own in a small house. The decoration is very influenced by my work, my passion for old and crafted furniture and my time in Scandinavia. One should expect a lot of wood and white, with simple and rustic furniture and a very cosy feeling. There is a stove in the living room that makes the best company in the evenings.
    Ballymun is a very interesting neighborhood and its story reflects some of the better and worse aspects of Dublin. The area in which the house is located is very quiet. There are supermarkets, food takeaway, pharmacy and a really nice coffee place at the rediscovery centre, which is located at the ol boiler house of the neighborhood.
