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!

  • Splendido appartamento, posizione fantastica per esplorare Dublino! Liam è stato davvero utile prima dell'arrivo e si è assicurato che avessimo molte informazioni per il check-in / arrivo dall'aeroporto! Il tocco in più della caffettiera e del caffè fresco per la mattina è stato molto apprezzato. Grazie ancora :)

    Kate2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Lo spazio è esattamente come descritto, con tutto il necessario per un lungo soggiorno. Posto centrale con molti negozi, ristoranti, pub e caffè nelle vicinanze. L'appartamento aveva molto spazio per noi tre. Abbiamo avuto alcuni problemi di comunicazione minori, ma per il resto Liam è stato un grande ospite.

    Lucy2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Abbiamo trascorso un soggiorno molto confortevole nell'appartamento di Liam. La posizione era molto buona e l'appartamento era spazioso. Grazie mille.

    Anthea2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Ottimo soggiorno, buona posizione, il manuale aveva alcuni ottimi consigli e suggerimenti. Il nostro gruppo è stato benissimo. Ci tornerei e lo consiglierei assolutamente.

    Jack2020-01-04T00:00:00Z

    Erik2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • È stato un posto assolutamente fantastico. Vicino al centro, belle strutture, super pulito e la casa era bellissima! Tornerò sicuramente al posto di nuovo!

    Sumi2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Il posto di Liam è in una posizione perfetta e davvero bello. È stato completamente silenzioso anche se ci sono molti negozi e caffè in giro. Era il luogo ideale per radicarci mentre esploravamo la città con i nostri due bambini piccoli. Tutti hanno dormito benissimo, la cucina era bella e fornita di articoli di base, compresi caffè e tè, e ci siamo sentiti davvero al sicuro. Non potevo immaginare un posto migliore in città, soprattutto a questo prezzo.

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

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

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!

  • 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.

  • Sarah è stata un'ospite eccellente e molto disponibile. Il posto è fantastico come le strutture. Essere consapevoli del fatto che si trova in un'area residenziale ed è vicino alla casa principale, quindi è necessario ridurre il rumore. Nel complesso il nostro soggiorno è stato eccellente

    Sam2019-11-29T00:00:00Z
  • Da dove comincio?! La casa è BELLA e in una posizione eccellente. Ma Sarah è una delle persone più gentili che abbiamo mai incontrato. Ha reso la nostra prima visita in Irlanda indimenticabile. La nostra mamma irlandese

    Brooke2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Una notte favolosa, posizione, spazio e servizi erano perfetti per il nostro weekend e i padroni di casa erano così accoglienti. È facilmente accessibile dalle strade principali e dall'aeroporto e un breve viaggio nel centro della città. Stiamo già programmando di prenotare per il prossimo anno! Grazie ancora per un piacevole soggiorno.

    Aisling2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Non posso parlare abbastanza bene di Sarah e della sua bella casa. Il nostro orario di atterraggio del volo era fuori dall'orario del check-in e ci ha accolto con tè e conversazione. Le camere sono molto confortevoli. Per quanto sembri sciocco, la pressione dell'acqua era degna di nota. Abbiamo alloggiato in molti hotel e B&B nel corso dei nostri viaggi in luna di miele, e la pressione dell'acqua qui è stata fenomenale in confronto. Anche lo spazio è assolutamente stupendo. Ritorneremo sicuramente. Sarah è di gran lunga l'ospite migliore che abbiamo mai avuto, ed è davvero una persona meravigliosa.

    Cassandra2019-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • Sarah è un'ospite eccezionale, che offre di fare la spesa e di fornire un passaggio occasionale al Castleknock Village. Lei e la sua famiglia erano le guide perfette per le cose da fare e vedere a Dublino! Phoenix Park è un posto fantastico a mezzo isolato di distanza. I ristoranti Castleknock, in particolare Castello Bruno, erano incredibili! Abbiamo apprezzato molto la sauna e la posizione è solo una breve corsa in taxi per le principali attrazioni !! Ti consiglio di stare qui con la famiglia e gli amici per goderti la magia e il fascino di Dublino!

    Kathleen2019-11-09T00:00:00Z
  • Questo è un posto fantastico dove stare. Non possiamo dire abbastanza cose fantastiche al riguardo. Non rimarrete delusi se rimanete qui. Non vediamo l'ora di tornare.

    Steve2019-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • L'eccezionale ospitalità che abbiamo ricevuto qui stabilisce il massimo per l'Irlanda. Ci siamo immediatamente sentiti parte della famiglia e lo stesso Airbnb è stato incredibile. Sicuramente rimani qui se ne hai la possibilità!

    Jessica2019-10-29T00:00:00Z

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

Dublin two main pedestrian shopping streets, Grafton and Henry St are about 5 minutes away. Trinity College with its famous Library is 3 minutes walk. Dublin is experiencing a Renaissance after a long recession and every week a new exciting restaurant, cultural space or play is opening. It is a great time to be visiting!

  • Il loft pulito ed elegante di Dardo è stato il luogo perfetto per noi per base noi stessi a Dublino per le nostre avventure in città e vicino alle fermate degli autobus per le nostre incredibili gite di un giorno. Sei proprio nel cuore del centro città. Detto questo, si sente il rumore della città soprattutto il venerdì e il sabato, quindi se questo ti dà fastidio, i tappi per le orecchie hanno funzionato bene! C'erano ampi pub, ristoranti, negozi e altri servizi nelle immediate vicinanze. Dardo è stato un grande ospite ed è stato molto attento alle nostre domande ed è stato rapido con il nostro ritiro delle chiavi. Non potevamo chiedere un ospite migliore e abbiamo apprezzato i suoi consigli! Grazie ancora Dardo per averci permesso di usare il tuo spazio! Vogliamo già pianificare un viaggio di ritorno!

    Kelli2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Dardo ha comunicato molto bene in tutto ed è stato davvero accomodante con noi. Siamo arrivati a Dublino abbastanza presto e siamo riusciti a lasciare le valigie immediatamente, il che ci ha dato il tempo di esplorare. L'appartamento si trova in una posizione perfetta ed è molto pulito e ordinato. Ci siamo sentiti davvero al sicuro, così come l'accesso e la sicurezza dell'edificio erano molto buoni. L'appartamento era molto spazioso e ci siamo sentiti molto bene lì.

    Simon2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Posto molto bello, posizione straordinaria!

    Chester2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Il posto di Dardo è stato fantastico! Perfetta posizione perfetta perfetta, molto pulita, ottima comunicazione! Torneremo qui in futuro!

    Alysia2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Un posto favoloso! La posizione era incredibile, così come i panorami. Mi è piaciuto molto uscire dalla porta ed essere nel cuore di tutte le cose che volevamo fare. Dardo è stato fantastico, il posto è stato fantastico ... un'esperienza molto positiva e spero di avere l'opportunità di tornarci.

    Jack2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Splendida posizione! Padrone di casa delizioso e molto amichevole.

    Louise2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • Ottima posizione con vista sul fiume e sul ponte pedonale di ha'penny. Molto spazio. Un po 'spifferi ma riscaldatori di spazio disponibili. I tempi di risposta dell'host sono fantastici.

  • Il posto era molto ben attrezzato. È inoltre dotato di una culla, seggiolone, lavatrice, asciugatrice e lavastoviglie. Adoro la cucina perché puoi trovare l'attrezzatura di cui hai bisogno per preparare un semplice pasto. La posizione era molto buona Era a soli 15 minuti a piedi dal quartiere dello shopping. A soli 3 minuti a piedi, puoi trovare alcuni bei ristoranti e un minimarket. Il posto è pulito e confortevole. Ritorneremo sicuramente se andiamo di nuovo a Dublino.

  • Il posto di Liam era in una posizione eccellente per le nostre esigenze. Era a pochi passi da tutte le cose che volevamo fare a Dublino e vicino a una fermata della linea del tram quando ne avevamo bisogno. L'appartamento era ben attrezzato per cucinare i nostri pasti che era importante dato che eravamo lì per quattro settimane. Il vicino negozio Fresh era ottimo per la spesa. L'appartamento era pulito e ben arredato ed era uno spazio confortevole per rilassarsi. Siamo stati felici di incontrare Liam che era gentile e disponibile. Nel complesso, siamo stati benissimo. Speriamo di affittare di nuovo questo spazio nel nostro prossimo viaggio a Dublino.

  • Buona posizione, casa pulita e molto calda.

    John2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • La camera di Paul era proprio ciò di cui avevamo bisogno per il nostro soggiorno a Dublino. A 20 minuti di trasporto pubblico dalla città con fermate degli autobus e stazioni ferroviarie a meno di 6 minuti a piedi (suggerisco di fare un salto in treno in aeroporto). Paul è stato estremamente gentile fin dall'inizio, mentre ci ha fatto personalmente il check-in e ci ha mostrato la casa. La colazione era disponibile fino alle 11 e ci ha permesso di tenere tutti gli oggetti da asporto rimasti nel suo frigorifero. Ritornerei sicuramente!

    Nonye -Chinonyelum2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Abbiamo davvero apprezzato il nostro soggiorno a Dublino a casa di Paul. Era tutto molto pulito. L'arredamento è semplice ma ha tutto ciò di cui avevamo bisogno. Paul ci ha dato buoni consigli su cosa fare a Dublino e in Irlanda e ha sempre risposto abbastanza velocemente quando abbiamo domande. L'area circostante è tranquilla ed è facile raggiungere il centro città o la spiaggia. Consiglierei di portare i tappi per le orecchie perché le pareti sono sottili e puoi sentire gli altri ospiti in casa. Nel complesso siamo rimasti davvero contenti di aver scelto questo posto!

    Lea2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Paul è stato molto gentile, comunicatore rapido, ha suggerito posti e ci ha fatto fare un giro. Aveva anche asciugamani, shampoo sotto la doccia e cereali / caffè / tè / latte forniti.

    Denis2019-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • Malehide è una città meravigliosa, non troppo distante dal centro città. Valeva la pena una giornata per passeggiare per la città e visitare il castello, il porto turistico, l'estuario e i pub locali!

    Dawn2019-10-20T00:00:00Z

  • Ottimo posto per un gruppo di 3 adulti e un bambino. Abbiamo dovuto volare fuori il giorno successivo e sono stati principalmente interessati alla vicinanza degli appartamenti all'aeroporto, ma siamo rimasti sorpresi da quanto bello malahide è, bella città costiera con molti ristoranti e negozi e facile distanza dal castello malahide. L'appartamento era pulito e confortevole con piccolo giardino e parcheggio facile

    Brian2017-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Ottimi padroni di casa. Risposte rapide a tutte le query. Bella casa, pulita e confortevole. Cucina ben attrezzata. Quartiere bello e sicuro. Alcune deliziose trattorie ci aspettavano in frigorifero!

    Margaret2017-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • Il posto di Tara soddisfa ogni nostra esigenza per il nostro soggiorno a Malahide. Il cottage misura il nostro gruppo di sei comodamente per una notte (e avremmo potuto fare un secondo), ma sarebbe sicuramente adatta 4 molto bene per un soggiorno più lungo. Lo spazio è accogliente, pulito e ben arredato; esattamente come nella foto! Tara è andata davvero fuori per rendere il nostro soggiorno facile e confortevole. Lei era molto comunicativa e disponibile per tutte le domande che abbiamo avuto (anche prendere la mia chiamata al suo sabato sera quando siamo stati persi cercando di trovare la casa!). Lei era pronta a dare ottime raccomandazioni, e persino offrì di fermarsi per il negozio prima che noi arrivassimo. La casa è a circa 20 minuti a piedi o veloce corsa in auto sia Malahide Castle e una grande area del centro piena di ristoranti deliziosi. (Consigliamo Jaipur per chi ama il cibo indiano, ma Tara ha anche altre ottime raccomandazioni). Si tratta anche di una corsa 15-20 minuti per l'aeroporto che era molto comodo per i pochi di noi che avevano voli di mattina presto. Nel complesso abbiamo avuto un ottimo soggiorno e spero di tornarci in Irlanda per tornarci presto! Grazie ancora Tara!

    Nicole2017-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • Il posto di Tara è un ottimo posto dove stare durante una visita a Malahide. La passeggiata in Malahide dura circa 15 minuti. Ci siamo divertiti dopo un pasto fantastico nel villaggio. Il cottage era perfetto per la nostra vacanza in famiglia. Era molto pulito e recentemente rinnovato. Ci auguriamo possa esserti utile nella programmazione del tuo viaggio. Tara era un ospite brillante e sempre lì se e quando avevamo bisogno di lei. Grazie

    Janette2017-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Questa casa è bella! Era vicino a tutto quello che avevamo bisogno per una breve passeggiata, treno, autobus o taxi. Tutto quello che abbiamo preso. Il treno per Dublino è a 15 minuti a piedi se il tuo lento (me) Tara era un ospite stupefacente. Ogni volta che avevamo bisogno di lei, lei ha risposto subito. Già prevedendo un viaggio di ritorno

    Cherice2017-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • L'elenco di Tara era ottimo, molto pulito, vicino sia all'aeroporto, sia allo shopping e ai ripari. Tara stessa è un ospite impressionante che ha posto il posto in modo che tutte le domande siano risposte, ma se necessaria è solo un testo lontano, ma ancora abbastanza professionale per darti tutta la privacy che vuoi. Ottimo posto, ottimo padrone di casa.

    Lee2017-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • Siamo stati immediatamente soddisfatti dell'aspetto luminoso, pulito e moderno del luogo e la calorosa accoglienza dei nostri ospiti. Ci è piaciuto che potessimo fare una breve passeggiata fino al cuore del villaggio. Avere il nostro parcheggio era anche un sollievo. Ci siamo sentiti molto a casa ogni volta che siamo tornati da una giornata intensa e apprezzato il quartiere tranquillo e pittoresco. I nostri padroni di casa erano molto disponibili e disponibile. Un posto eccellente se stai cercando una casa lontano da casa. Grazie Tara e Stephen.

    Grace2017-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • Tara e suo marito erano i padroni di casa perfetti. Molto disponibile e cordiale. L'appartamento era molto pulito, molto, molto importante per la nostra famiglia. La posizione è ideale, vicino all'aeroporto e con i mezzi pubblici per Dublino. Il villaggio è vicino da per mercati, pub e ristoranti. Ci siamo sentiti molto sicuri. Tara ha lasciato anche snack, caffè e tè per noi. Ci tornerò sicuramente quando visiteremo Dublino. Grazie Tara & Stephen per la tua calorosa ospitalità !!!!!

  • Siamo stati a casa di Shay per una notte prima di un volo in partenza da Dublino. Il posto era pulito, il frigo era ben fornito e aveva tutto ciò di cui avevamo bisogno. La posizione era a meno di 10 minuti dall'aeroporto e ci siamo divertiti ad andare a cena nella città di Malahide. Ritornerei in questo posto e lo consiglierei ad altri.

    Madison2019-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • Il posto di Shay era perfetto! Non abbiamo finito per entrare fino a molto più tardi del previsto, ma Shay ha reso il check-in estremamente semplice e ha risposto rapidamente al mio messaggio. La casa era molto pulita e carina! Vorrei che avessimo più tempo per goderci e la zona! Abbiamo scelto questa casa per la vicinanza all'aeroporto (a dieci minuti d'auto). Era tutto ciò che speravamo e altro ancora!

    Meg2019-06-26T00:00:00Z
  • Un B&B pulito e ben arredato molto vicino al Castello di Malahide e alla città, e puoi prendere l'autobus o il treno dalla vicina a Dublino per una gita di un giorno.

    Phil2019-06-20T00:00:00Z
  • Il Lodge è situato a pochi passi dal Castello di Malahide, che si è rivelato essere un'attrazione molto più grande di quanto ci aspettassimo! (Il castello in sé non è enorme e non abbiamo visitato l'interno. Tuttavia, l'area intorno al castello è un bellissimo parco che si collega al Villaggio. È come il Central Park di Malahide) Abbiamo usato il posto di Shay come primo fermarsi dopo l'aeroporto per dormire al largo del nostro jet lag prima di iniziare il nostro viaggio attraverso il paese. Consiglio vivamente questo posto a chiunque cerchi un posto vicino all'aeroporto. (Un posto che sembra essere anche caratteristico, tranquillo e bello.)

    Kevin2019-06-11T00:00:00Z
  • La casa era perfetta per il nostro soggiorno. Si tratta di un cottage separato per gli ospiti dalla casa principale con ingresso privato. La casa era molto pulita e la posizione era perfetta per raggiungere a piedi il castello e i giardini di Malahide e accedere al villaggio, dove ci sono molti ottimi ristoranti e negozi. Era 15 minuti dall'aeroporto. La casa era esattamente come nella foto e descritta e l'host era molto gentile al momento del check-in e ha dato consigli utili. Vorremmo rimanere qui più a lungo.

    Bridget2019-05-26T00:00:00Z
  • Il Lodge supera tutte le aspettative. Shay è un anfitrione eccezionale con risposte rapide e caldi tocchi premurosi che ci hanno fatto sentire come a casa. Abbiamo adorato il nostro rapido soggiorno al Lodge e lo consiglierei a tutti. Grazie mille Shay per aver condiviso il tuo posto con noi!

    Rob2019-04-27T00:00:00Z
  • Cottage assolutamente delizioso! Molto meglio di quanto ci aspettassimo. Tanti piccoli tocchi meravigliosi per farti sentire a tuo agio ea casa. Tutto era perfettamente pulito. Shay era anche un ospite molto accogliente. Vorremmo assolutamente prenotare di nuovo qui o lo consigliamo a chiunque.

  • La padrona di casa è stata fantastica e ha fatto di tutto per aiutarci con tutto ciò di cui avevamo bisogno. La posizione è a circa 50 minuti dal centro della città in treno, autobus e anche un po 'di camminare. C'è un negozio di alimentari a 3 minuti da casa che è fantastico. Ci ha fornito la colazione e ci ha persino aiutato a cucinare il nostro cibo quando la cucina non era inclusa nel soggiorno.

    Glaucia2020-02-23T00:00:00Z

Ci ha sempre assistito molto gentilmente e ci ha lasciato la colazione pronta anche se siamo partiti molto presto l'ultimo giorno. Le persone della zona sono molto amichevoli. È molto bello passeggiare per quelle strade. Siamo stati benissimo

    Aldo Ruben2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Siamo stati benissimo in questa casa accogliente con una famiglia così bella. La zona è molto bella con una spiaggia nelle vicinanze e un facile accesso a Dublino. Rosheen e suo marito sono stati molto utili con i consigli e il trasporto che hanno dato. Consiglio vivamente questo airbnb a chiunque!

    Jazlyn2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Questa è una bella famiglia di 6 persone in una graziosa casa molto vicino al centro di Malahide. Tutto era perfetto e davvero cordiale! Siamo stati prelevati all'aeroporto e l'accoglienza è stata così calorosa e ci ha fatto sentire subito a casa. Dormire era fantastico, dato che è un quartiere molto tranquillo. I letti sono estremamente comodi con molti cuscini, un enorme piumone e buoni materassi. In casa, non penseresti mai che ci siano bambini ... sono molto silenziosi e premurosi. Il bagno era molto pulito e ordinato e noi come ospiti avevamo il nostro! Il soggiorno è lì per la colazione degli ospiti ed è stato delizioso perché c'era un enorme albero di Natale e un comodo camino. Tutto è molto carino con molti dettagli ponderati. Abbiamo potuto fare la nostra colazione ogni volta che volevamo, ma Roisín ci ha fornito tutto ciò di cui avevamo bisogno (e altro). Abbiamo davvero apprezzato il nostro soggiorno, diciamo un GRANDE GRAZIE e un FELICE NATALE a tutta la famiglia, e posso solo consigliare questo posto! Ritorneremo sicuramente!

    Constanze2019-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • Rosheen e la sua famiglia ci hanno accolto con i sorrisi più brillanti. Facile da comunicare e ha ricevuto risposte rapide da Rosheen. È stato un soggiorno meraviglioso e confortevole al Malahide. Tesco e trasporti situati nelle vicinanze di airbnb. Buoni ristoranti e bar disponibili a piedi. Adoro le colazioni dolci che Rosheen ha preparato per noi ogni mattina. È anche un luogo sicuro. Nel complesso è stata un'esperienza molto positiva stare con Rosheen. Grazie.

    Vaibhavi2019-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • Questa è una posizione fantastica per esplorare Malahide, a 2 minuti dal mare e dai negozi. La camera da letto e il bagno privato erano pulitissimi.

    Mark2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • Ottima posizione per l'accesso all'aeroporto. Il proprietario affitta quattro stanze separate, tutte usando un bagno, quindi sembra un po 'un ostello ma serve il bisogno di una notte per un rapido accesso all'aeroporto. La mia mansarda era particolarmente piacevole e tranquilla.

    Mark2019-10-10T00:00:00Z

  • La casa si trova a circa 500 metri dalla fermata dell'autobus, il centro è a 1 km, il centro commerciale a 500 metri e l'aeroporto a 15 minuti in autobus. La camera si trova in mansarda, con stile, pulizia e chiarezza. L'host è molto cordiale, anche se abbiamo ricevuto un'altra persona al momento dell'arrivo, il bagno è condiviso non molto grande ma pulito. La colazione andava bene, senza grandi dettagli, pane tostato e cereali, abbastanza.

  • 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. Ti senti molto a tuo agio, è particolarmente comodo durante la caccia in pianura o in solitaria. 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

    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.

    There are many nice restaurants and shops near my cottage. Free breakfast consisting of cereals, tea and coffee is available. You might need to get your own milk in the shop just across the road.
    This is a spacious bedroom with plenty of space to run around and dance when you come home drunk. The room has a door lock so you can go out and be assured that all your valuables are safe inside the room. The bedroom has a double bed and a wardrobe cabinet so it is perfect for 2 people to sleep in comfortably. There is a fully equipped kitchen in the house that has the basic ingredients you need to prepare a meal. There is a dining table and chairs you can use to prepare a meal or eat dinner. During hot Irish summer evenings, there is a really cool backyard where you and your guests can chill, chat and sip on some fine Irish whiskeys.
    My home is located in North Dublin, County Dublin, Ireland. It is a good home and very handy for the airport as well as the city. There is a bus stop just a little to the side of the cottage. It is also a short bus ride from Croke Park, which is the biggest stadium in Ireland, this is were the national sports of Ireland are played, such as GAA and hurling. There is a Texaco Garage across the street and Airside Retail Park is just down and is great local place to shop.

    Beautiful place with great views of the River Liffey and the Docklands in a very quiet and safe building. Grocery stores and the tech hub nearby with airport bus, city bus & tram stops within few minutes walk. Very close to all large tech companies.
    All amenities available.
  • Il posto di Elo è a pochi secondi a piedi dalla 3 Arena che era assolutamente l'ideale per il mio soggiorno. Spero di tornarci in futuro!

    Jake2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Vorrei iniziare dicendo: questo è senza dubbio la migliore stanza che si possa ottenere per i soldi a Dublino! Detto questo, ho apprezzato la qualità alberghiera dell'alloggio, le terrazze (sì, ce n'è più di una) e la vista sul fiume Liffey e sulle banchine del Canal Grande - la sistemazione è tutt'altro che la migliore cosa su questo Airbnb. Ciò che ruba davvero lo spettacolo sono i padroni di casa: passare del tempo con loro è stata la vera sorpresa qui. Persone adorabili e personaggi veramente genuini che ho avuto il privilegio di essere in loro compagnia. Abbiamo condiviso un pasto, abbiamo cantato, abbiamo riso e raccontato una storia. Sulla sistemazione - è molto convenientemente situato in una delle parti migliori e più costose di Dublino. A pochi passi dalla fermata dell'autobus Airlink che porta da e per l'aeroporto. A pochi passi da tutto davvero. La base perfetta per chiunque esplorare Dublino. La stanza è grande, molto adatta per una coppia e molto pulita. L'appartamento offre una cucina completamente funzionale e c'è una lavatrice e un'asciugatrice che è importante se rimani più a lungo. Le foto non rendono davvero giustizia, i soffitti dell'appartamento sono molto alti e le finestre panoramiche aprono il posto sul lungofiume con la luce del sole mattutina che vi entra. Consiglio vivamente di soggiornare qui. Devo anche un ringraziamento speciale alla deliziosa e affascinante Giuliana che si è presa cura di me quando sono arrivata lì - grazie amore :)

    Tundra2019-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • Siamo stati molto bene a casa di Deirdre. Il check-in è stato facile. Il posto era pulito con qualche tocco in più. Le raccomandazioni che avevano per dove andare in città erano molto belle! Come qualcuno aveva già menzionato in una recensione, ci sono alcune scale da salire, che è qualcosa da tenere a mente con i bagagli, ma questo non ci ha disturbato. Spero solo che se usciremo di nuovo qui avremo più tempo per esplorare l'area. Sembra un posto davvero carino con molto da fare nelle vicinanze!

Lei è stata molto flessibile con il nostro check-in in quanto avevamo bisogno di restituire la nostra auto a noleggio diverse ore prima dell'orario richiesto per il check-in. Era il posto perfetto per la nostra ultima notte in Irlanda!

    Adam2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • Se è possibile valutare un posto a 6 stelle anziché 5, lo farei per questo. Donna è andata ben oltre quando i miei piani di viaggio sono diventati improvvisamente molto tumultuosi (per gentile concessione di COVID19). Ha davvero un occhio per i piccoli tocchi che hanno fatto una differenza sostanziale nel mio viaggio e trova un ottimo equilibrio tra professionista e delizioso. Non solo consiglierei il suo posto a un nuovo viaggiatore in Irlanda, ma l'ho tenuto d'occhio per una possibile visita di ripetizione l'anno prossimo!

Quando voli, avere del cibo come pane, uova e latte, nonché shampoo / balsamo, anche un foglio per i pranzi al sacco, fa la differenza. Arredamento molto pulito e curato. Grazie Donna.

  • Ho trascorso un piacevole soggiorno a casa di Liam! I padroni di casa sono stati molto utili, lo spazio era molto pulito e confortevole, ed è in una posizione privilegiata per un prezzo molto ragionevole. Consiglio vivamente!

    Alexandria2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Perfetto tutto! Ospitalità, accogliente camera pulita e scintillante, ottima posizione dove ho letteralmente raggiunto l'aeroporto di DUB. Il mio check-in era un po 'in ritardo rispetto alla sua scadenza, ma ha comunque ricevuto un caloroso benvenuto. Consigli locali e consigli pratici da lei sono sicuramente utili anche per me che ero stato a Dublino prima. Lo consiglio vivamente e torneremo sicuramente la prossima volta.

    Andy2019-06-27T00:00:00Z
  • Ho soggiornato per una notte, tutto era un modo descritto, pulito e confortevole. Liam è stato molto gentile nell'organizzare il mio check-in posticipato e accogliente. La posizione era perfetta per le mie esigenze, vicino all'aeroporto e al mio posto di lavoro in Airside Business Park.

    Pablo2019-06-26T00:00:00Z
  • Comunicazione eccellente e persona molto simpatica! :-) Posizione vicino all'aeroporto, raggiungibile con navetta ogni mezz'ora, molto comodo.

    Paul2019-06-23T00:00:00Z
  • Ho ricevuto un caloroso benvenuto e mi sono subito sentito a mio agio. Devo anche menzionare quanto tutto fosse pulito, il posto è decisamente tenuto ad un alto livello e questo è evidente. Ritornerei, dato che la posizione è eccellente e il rapporto qualità / prezzo è molto buono.

    Mark2019-06-22T00:00:00Z
  • Ottima sistemazione a 30 minuti a piedi dall'aeroporto in una zona tranquilla e accogliente, una casa perfetta con persone adorabili, mi raccomando!

    Axel2019-06-15T00:00:00Z
  • Ho soggiornato qui per una notte perché è così vicino all'aeroporto. Ci sono un paio di ristoranti e un negozio di alimentari facilmente raggiungibili a piedi. I padroni di casa erano molto gentili e disponibili. È stato davvero facile fare il check-in e il check-out.

  • Un ottimo soggiorno. Piccolo villaggio incantevole e un'ottima posizione in città. Comodo e tranquillo e facile accesso a Dublino e all'aeroporto

    Ned2019-05-26T00:00:00Z
  • Incredibile soggiorno nella camera del maggiordomo. Tutto ciò di cui avremmo potuto aver bisogno per il nostro soggiorno è stato fornito per noi. La comunicazione con l'ospite è stata favolosa, e hanno fatto di tutto per rendere il nostro soggiorno davvero speciale! La stanza del maggiordomo è molto più grande di quanto le immagini dimostrino, una vera e accogliente suite! La città hpuse si trova proprio di fronte alla stazione ferroviaria, quindi puoi andare ed esplorare l'Irlanda con grande facilità, e negozi, pub, ristoranti sono proprio sulla porta di casa! Ci torneremo sicuramente in futuro!

  • Grazie per avermi ospitato Frances.

    Chloé2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • 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
  • Non dimenticare di dire la posizione specifica al tassista se proviene dall'aeroporto. Ad esempio, il nome della strada ... e così via

    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
  • Ho trascorso un soggiorno molto confortevole con Frances. Lei è stata accogliente e comunicativa. Ci tornerei volentieri!

    Patrick2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Consiglio Frances per il 100% che è davvero una grande schiera.
