NORRA SIDAN LOKALA RESTAURANTER: "The Cobalt Cafe", i ett vackert georgianskt hus på North Great Georges Street, som fördubblas som ett galleri, är bra till lunch. Parnell Street, Dublins framträdande "Chinatown" ligger bara ett halvt block i söder. Nyligen öppnade, på Parnell Square West är "The Hot Stove", som serverar modern irländsk mat i en smart och bekväm miljö. På O'Connell Street, på Moore Street hittar du Parisbageriet och (nytt) Deli.

Nära floden, "Le Bon Crubeen" (crubeen = gris trotter-det är en modern fransk-irländsk restaurang) ligger på Talbot Street, liksom den ärafulla och oerhört populära "Talbot 101". Den packas till gunnlarna med lokalbefolkningen mellan 5,54 och 7,15 och njuter av deras pre-theater-kvällsmat innan klostergardinerna stiger kl. 7.30 när de avstår från sina platser för resten av oss! På floden älskar jag Panem, inför Millennium Bridge, för en snabb kaffe och en läcker siciliansk mandelkaka, bakad i lokalerna. Några dörrar ner, hittar du ett kluster av italienska barer, kaféer och restauranger som serverar god mat. Ett halvt kvarter i öster är den trendiga restaurangen "Winding Stairs" med sina bokfodrade väggar (reliker till ett tidigare begagnat bokhandeln med samma namn), medan tillbaka på Capel Street, lokalbefolkningen raser om Brother Hubbard till lunch. LOKALA PUBS inkluderar "Hill 16" mittemot huset, på Gardiner Street - mycket populärt med GAA-publiken på matchdagar (Gaelic Athletic Association Stadium, Croke Park, ligger bara 3 kvarter i öster), de drar en superb " halvliter'. "The Heritage Parnell", på Parnell Street West, precis runt hörnet från O'Connell Street "The Flowing Tide", på hörnet av Marlborough Street, mittemot Abbey Theatre, är en av mina favoriter - efter att gardinen går ner i Abbey, hälften av casten kommer sannolikt att vara i baren. Några dörrar närmare O'Connell Street är Mulligans, en annan mycket trevlig pub, från den edwardianska tiden. "Kyrkan" på Mary Street, i en ombyggd 1720-kyrka, är en annan bra plats för en drink; Den tidigare ägaren vann många utmärkelser för restaureringens höga kvalitet. Capel Street har många typiska lokala pubar, som har den extra fördelen av att betjäna en till stor del lokalbefolkning. De inkluderar "O'Neill's" och "Slattery's som är bra för musik. "The Black Sheep" har de lokala hantverkarna övertäckt och gör bra barmat, (liksom sin syster pub, "The Brew Dock", på Store Street, längst ner på Gardiner Street. Norra sidan traditionell musik "musikerens" Baren är "The Cobblestone", på toppen av Smithfield, och är lämpligen grungy.

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.

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.

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 'The Hot Stove', serving modern Irish food in a smart and comfortable setting.
Across O'Connell Street, on Moore Street, you will find the Paris Bakery, and (new) Deli. They serve all day, until 10 pm; superb pastries and great coffee from 8am, as well as excellent bistro-style meals, and fantastic bread.

Nearer the river, 'Le Bon Crubeen' (crubeen=pig's trotter- it's a modern Franco-Irish restaurant) is on Talbot Street, as is the venerable and immensely popular 'Talbot 101'. It is packed to the gunnels with locals between 5.54 and 7.15, enjoying their pre-theatre supper before the Abbey curtains rise at 7.30, when they relinquish their seats for the rest of us!

On the riverfront, I love Panem, facing the Millennium Bridge, for a quick coffee and a delicious Sicilian almond biscuit, baked on the premises. A few doors down, you'll find a cluster of Italian bars, cafes and restaurants serving good quality food. Half a block to the east is the trendy 'Winding Stairs' restaurant, with its book-lined walls (relics of a former second-hand bookshop-cum-cafe of the same name), while 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.) Clery’s Department Store is on O’Connell Street- have a look at the elegant 1940’s neo-classical façade, a mini version of Selfridges’s in London.

NORTHSIDE CULTURAL ATTRACTIONS
The North side of Parnell Square is home to the city's Hugh Lane Gallery of Modern Art; we share a significant collection of Impressionist painting with the Tate Gallery in London, part of the Hugh Lane Bequest, which is rotated in seven-year cycles. Next door is the Writer's Centre, and next door again, is the Writer's Museum, with a Michelin-starred restaurant in the basement, the amazing Chapter One. Down on the East side of Parnell Square is the beautiful jewel-box that is the Gate Theatre - part of the 18th-century entertainment complex established by the entrepreneurial Dr. Bartholomew, to help support his new Rotunda Maternity Hospital (the oldest purpose-built such hospital in the world, and still delivering babies on a daily basis, 270 years later (9000 is 2012).

You could be seated in either the Abbey or Gate Theatres within 10 minutes of leaving the house, and the James Joyce Cultural Centre is even closer, on North Great Georges Street (don't forget to check out the Cobalt Cafe, opposite).

Hop on the Luas Red Line, going west, in Abbey Street, halfway between Mountjoy Square and the river, and you will be dropped at the ‘Museum’. The National Museum, Collins Barracks, housed in an old military barracks, dating from 1702, contains the Decorative Arts Collections, (basically, everything post 1700). Descend at the next stop, ‘Heuston’ for IMMA, Ireland's National Museum of Modern Art, housed in the old Kilmainham Hospital, built in the1660’s. It pre-dates the more famous Chelsea Hospital in London by several years.

Not to be missed is the Old Jameson Distillery, in Smithfield. Jameson was distilled here until 1971, when three historic distilleries amalgamated, and centralized distilling in Midleton, Co. Cork. The Museum is very well presented; one is guided around the distilling floor, among the huge old pot stills before retiring to the Bar to sample the goods.

Nearby is one of the oldest churches in Dublin, St.Michan’s, on Church Street, dating from the mid-11thc. There are several mummified bodies in the basement, thought to be Crusaders. When I was a child, one was allowed to shake their hands…..


SOUTHSIDE
In the south city centre, the RESTAURANT HUB is in the pedestrian streets to either side of Grafton Street, and in Temple Bar. Particular favourites of mine include:
* Nede, Temple Bar Square
* Eden Bar and Grill, South William Street
* The Green Hen, Wicklow Street
* Fallon and Byrne, Exchequer Street, basement wine-bar, full service restaurant first- floor, and coffee bar within the food-hall on the ground floor.
* Fade Street Social, Fade Street, tapas bar and full-service restaurant.
* The Rustic Stone, Exchequer Street, upmarket, sophisticated and healthy ‘fast food’.
* Cornucopia, Wicklow Street- vegetarian café day, full service by evening.
* The Port House, South William Street, wine bar and tapas.
* Pinxto, Crowe Street, Temple Bar, as above, same management.

Southside city-centre TRADITIONAL PUBS we like are:
* Mulligan's, Poolbeg Street
* Neary's, Chatham Street
* Grogan’s, South William Street
* International Bar, Wicklow Street
* O'Neill's, Suffolk Street
* The Dawson Lounge, Dawson Street
* The Stag's Head, Connaught Court
* The Long Hall, South Great Georges Street
* Doheny and Nesbitt’s, Merrion Row
* Kehoe’s, South Anne Street
* The Duke, Duke Street

Fronting the river, TEMPLE BAR, with its vibrant mix of independent shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs, markets and cultural institutions occupies an area three blocks deep and ten blocks long. At the western end, look out for the two branches of the Queen of Tarts- a wonderful teas shop that offers really good home baking and teas and coffees, all served on mismatched antique china (Lord Edward Street and Cow's Lane).

TEMPLE BAR FARMERS MARKET, is held every Saturday in Meeting House Square, 9-4.30, now has a smart new tensile roof for wet days, and is a good place to rub shoulders with the locals, whilst sampling local food culture. Don’t miss the Oyster Stall, Hick’s Pork Butchers, or David Llewyllan’s fantastic ‘Double L’ local cider- 100% apple (not even water), and the two local cheese stalls, among others. Don’t’ forget to check out the overflow stalls on Curved Street, where Rossa Crowe’s fantastic bread is on offer- Rossa took himself off to France for two years to train, and now produces slow fermented breads, made with the very best organic flours.

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.

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.

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.

I live on the top floor of the building, and aim to greet my guests and give them an orientation to the apartment and the city upon arrival. I am usually on hand to answer any questions. If I am not here, a family member will usually deputise for me.

Annat att notera

Veckans och månadspriset är tillgängligt - var vänlig fråga VÄNLIG, Var vänlig, Var god och håll all korrespondens i strängen på webbplatsen. Jag kan inte garantera att jag ens kommer att se, än mindre svara på e-postmeddelanden som skickas till min privata e-postadress. OBSERVERA - Det finns begränsad höjd i sovloftet, och dubbelsängen är LÅG. Var god studera fotografierna och läs beskrivningarna noggrant. Lägenheten presenteras som en dubbel enhet. Jag antar att det är vad som krävs, om inte annat sägs. En 90 cm avdragbar säng av kontraktskvalitet är tillgänglig för en extra gäst. Om lägenheten krävs som en TWIN-det finns en extra avgift på € 10 per hyresperiod för att täcka kostnaden för extra tvätt. INTE PÅ SITE PARKERING. Jag ångrar att jag inte längre kan erbjuda parkering på plats. Jag har förhandlat fram en diskonteringsränta med den lokala QPark parkeringsparken, som är två kvarter söder och två kvarter väster om oss på Cathal Brugha Street vid korsningen med Marlborough St.. Det är 5 € över natten klockan 17:00 - 10:00 eller € 12,50 per Enkel inresa / utgång 24 timmars lay-over. Mitt råd skulle vara att återvända bilen tidigt - jag kan inte föreställa mig att du behöver den i Dublin .... Vi har ett labyrintiskt envägssystem, som delvis är utformat för att motverka privata bilister från att städa upp stadens centrum och , För närvarande grävas halva stadsgatorna för att underlätta spårläggning för den nya spårvagnslinjen, genom att komma i bruk i december 2017. Jag kommer lämna några rabattkuponger på bordet i lägenheten. SENASTE ANVÄNDNINGAR (efter 19:00) måste signaleras väl i avancerad. Mycket sena ankomster kommer att bli föremål för en sen incheckningsavgift, samlad i kontanter vid ankomsten. TIDLIGA MORNINGSFÖRSÄKRINGAR är också enligt tidigare överenskommelse.

WEEKLY AND MONTHLY PRICING IS AVAILABLE - PLEASE ASK

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE keep all correspondence in the string on the site. I cannot guarantee that I will even see, let alone respond to emails sent to my private email address.

PLEASE NOTE -- there is restricted height in the sleeping loft, and the double bed is LOW. Please study the photographs, and read the descriptions carefully.

THE APARTMENT IS PRESENTED AS A DOUBLE UNIT. I will assume that is what is required, unless told otherwise. A 90cm contract-quality foldaway bed is available for an extra guest. If the apartment is required as a TWIN- there is an additional charge of €10 per rental period, to cover the cost of the extra laundry.

NO ON SITE PARKING.
I regret that I can no longer offer parking on-site.

I have negotiated a discount rate with the local QPark multi storey car park, which is two blocks South and two blocks West of us on Cathal Brugha Street, at the junction with Marlborough St. It's €5 overnight 5pm- 10am, or €12.50 per single entry/exit 24 hr lay-over.

My advice would be to return the car early- I can't imagine that you will need it in Dublin....We have a labyrinthine one-way system, designed in part to discourage private motorists from cluttering up the city centre, AND, at the moment, half the city streets are dug up, to facilitate track-laying for the new cross city tram line, due to come into service in December 2017.

I will leave some discount coupons on the table in the apartment.

LATE ARRIVALS ( after 7pm) need to be signalled well in advanced. Very late arrivals will be subject to a late check-in fee, collected in cash, upon arrival.

EARLY MORNING ARRIVALS are also by prior arrangement. We can take in luggage AFTER 9am, and can give you keys to come back at your leisure, after 2pm.

Your consideration of other guests is appreciated: please be quiet between the hours of 10pm and 9am.

AS I DO NOT CHARGE A DEPOSIT, IT WOULD BE MUCH APPRECIATED IF GUESTS OBSERVED THE FOLLOWING RULES, IN ORDER TO MINIMISE WEAR AND TEAR, AND POTENTIAL DAMAGE:

SMOKING IS NOT PERMITTED IN THE BUILDING

The house has been painstakingly restored, with cork flooring in the apartment and original polished wooden floors in the common areas, so NO STILLETTOES, please.

ABSOLUTELY NO FOOD OR DRINK TO BE TAKEN UPSTAIRS - red wine, coffee and tea and expensive white bed linens are a disaster waiting to happen...

Please use coasters under hot cups, and drinks glasses, and be mindful that the finish on waxed and French polished antique furniture is quite delicate; alcohol and nail polish remover will leave unsightly, and difficult to remove, marks. A dish is provided for keys, which can chip or scratch..

Please do not put wooden utensils or cutting boards in the dishwasher!

NB. PLEASE DO NOT OPEN THE CENTRE SASHES OF THE WINDOW
The centre sash of the window is curved, and can be difficult to operate, as the tolerance between the two sashes is very tight- a design issue that cannot easily be resolved. The side sashes have spring balances and operate very easily, and will provide more than adequate ventilation.

PLEASE BE MINDFUL OF SECURITY, and remember to double-lock the front door. The top lock is a latch, but the bottom one is a deadlock, which needs to be locked, both when entering and leaving the building.

It would be much appreciated if guests would strip the bed before leaving. Please leave towels and sheets in two separate piles outside door

Please also TURN OFF the central heating; by turning the rotary switch on the boiler, which located in the press above the microwave. Also, please check that the the back-up electric water heater (immersion) in the press in the bathroom is off (by flicking UP the two switches beside the timer unit..

Other than that, it would be much appreciated if you would treat the house as you would your own home.

I wish you a very pleasurable stay in Dublin.

Karin was incredibly welcoming, the kitchen was stocked with basic items like milk, eggs, fruit juice and muesli. Later in the day she dropped in some home made banana bread, which was lovely. She was very accomodating and flexible in terms of departure, I'd definitely stay there again.

I contacted Karin about renting the Very Special Oval Georgian Studio for my daughter and her boyfriend. She got the trip to Dublin as an 18th birthday present. Karin got back to me right away and the 5 days were booked! The couple had a wonderful time. The studio was so nice they wanted to spend more time there! They saved money eating breakfast and lunches in the flat. The flat is very central, about a 10 - 15 min. walk to Temple Bar and easy to get to from the airport by bus. Karin couldn't be there for their arrival but kindly arranged for someone to meet them. This was our first time using Air BnB and the whole experience couldn't have been better. Much nicer and more personal than using a hotel and cheaper as well. Thank you so much, Karin! We'll definitely contact you the next time we are in Dublin and will recommend you to friends!

We had a fantastic time in Dublin, and much thanks to this great apartment. It was beautiful and had everything we could expect. We certainly enjoyed sitting in front of the fireplace with a glass of wine or Guinness. Karin was a great host!

I spent two nights at this wonderful apartment when in Dublin for a conference. Karin’s welcome pack was much appreciated and included home made muesli and marmalade, organic eggs, loose tea, great coffee and orange juice. The flat was impeccably clean and I soon had a roaring turf fire going. It was great to be away from the hustle and bustle of central Dublin yet be within walking distance of it - and what a great walk it is too! This is a real Dublin neighbourhood and I instantly felt at home. The Hill 16 over the road is very welcoming, as is The Parnell down the hill. My only regret is not having had enough time to fully explore the neighbourhood but I will certainly put that right in the future.
