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!
  • Karins plats passade perfekt till våra behov - ett centralt läge, cool georgisk lägenhet och mycket bekvämt! Vi kommer förhoppningsvis tillbaka snart igen!

  • En härlig plats som går till många fantastiska restauranger.

  • Vår vistelse med Karin var verkligen fantastisk. Fastigheten är vacker och har massor av karaktär och charm. Det är väl beläget inom en 15/20 minuters promenad från alla åtgärder beroende på vart du vill åka. Karin var en kunskap och var en glädje att prata med. Hennes tips för Dublin och husets historia var enastående och ökade till glädjen av att bo i en sådan storslagen gammal byggnad. Boendet var välutrustat och fullständigt rena. Förvänta dig inte alla de senaste moderna nackdelarna, detta är en periodegenskap och detta utgör en del av dess underbara charm - och vi ville inte eller behövde något som inte fanns där. Det var en liten fråga med det heta vattnet, men Karin hanterade detta snabbt och mycket ursäktande. Ingenting var för mycket för Karin. Detta är en fantastisk bas för en helg borta. Jag skulle 100% rekommendera detta till alla vänner och vi kommer att återvända oss i framtiden.

    Dane2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Karin är den bästa. Hon gav oss tips om vad vi skulle se när vi var här. Hon var mycket tillmötesgående och hjälpsam. Kunde inte ha gjort något bättre. Det är en underbar gammal byggnad också. Vi skulle definitivt återvända och hoppas att en dag. Tack, Karin!

  • Jag bokade den här appen för familjemedlemmar som en födelsedagspresent, de älskade det.

  • Verkligen underbar upplevelse allround.

    Darren2019-06-28T00:00:00Z
  • Karins plats var en övergripande bra vistelse för oss. Hon var tankeväckande och lämnade lite mat till oss i kylskåpet och var snabb att svara på allt vi behövde. Platsen var en 15 minuters promenad till centrum och var ganska säkert. Mitt enda klagomål var duschen var mycket liten men annat än att det var en bra vistelse!

    Chase2019-06-25T00:00:00Z
  • Det var bara perfekt! Det finns inga fler ord behövs :). Tack så mycket!

Airport bus (41) passes door, 8 min. walk to LUAS Red line, DART, (Connolly and Tara) and city busses. Dublin Bikes stand opposite house. 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..
  • Vi kan inte rekommendera denna Air BnB tillräckligt! Snabbt svar, utrymmet var mer än vi trodde. Jackie vägledde oss och gav oss användbara tips. Huset är vackert och uppenbarligen älskat. Vårt enda klagomål var att vi inte stannade längre. Tack för att du gjorde vår resa så minnesvärd.

    Hannah2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Det finns några AirBnB: er som liknar enhörningar: så sällsynta att de nästan anses vara mytiska. Karins erbjudanden är enhörningar. Helt perfekt beläget i Dublin: gångbar till praktiskt taget överallt och precis på busslinjen för allt annat. Restauranger och kaféer, museer och parker ligger alldeles utanför dörren. Boendet ligger utanför världen i värme och välkomnande. Det var som att välkomna hem till en plats som jag just hade kommit till: vackra konstverk, bekväm säng, välfylld skafferi och en öppen spis. En fungerande öppen spis. Fönstren hade utsikt över ett vackert torg och nämnde jag en öppen spis. Det var allt jag kunde göra för att lämna lägenheten och titta runt Dublin. Jag kan inte vänta med att återvända och hoppas att alla kan uppleva den varma gästfriheten hos Karin och en av hennes perfekt utsedda erbjudanden.

    Gunnydog2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • En riktigt charmig, karaktäristisk lägenhet på ett bra läge med alla förväntade moderna bekvämligheter. Karin var en stor värd, tack.

    Maeve2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • En härlig, bekvämt belägen plats som hade alla bekvämligheter du kan begära. Vi kunde gå till en majoritet av de lokala platserna i Dublin. Sammantaget skulle jag rekommendera!

    Rebecca2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • En super liten lägenhet med bra läge. Karin går ur sitt sätt att få dig att känna dig välkommen och det känns verkligen som hemma. Väl värt ett besök.

    John2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • Denna plats var supersöt. Jag gillade layouten, det var trevligt att kunna laga måltider här, och vi var på gångavstånd från alla de platser vi ville gå!

    Paige2019-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • Du kommer inte hitta bättre än Karins. Fantastisk unik studio med ett loft och en STOR värd

    Thomas2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Underbar, vacker och stor lägenhet med tankeväckande detaljer och bekvämligheter. Värdarna är super lyhörda och vänliga. Rekommenderas starkt.

  • Vi hade en mycket bekväm vistelse på Liams lägenhet. Platsen var mycket bra och lägenheten var rymlig. Tack så mycket.

    Anthea2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Bra vistelse, bra läge, manualen hade några bra rekommendationer och tips. Vår grupp hade en underbar tid. Skulle stanna igen och skulle absolut rekommendera.

    Jack2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Super fin och snygg lägenhet. Vi hade en fantastisk tid i Dublin

    Patrick2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Fab plats. Stor plats. Enkel kommunikation. Vi älskade vistelsen. Och skulle definitivt stanna igen när du är i Dublin!

    Dimiana2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • Liams plats är ett perfekt läge och riktigt trevligt. Det var helt tyst trots att det finns många butiker och kaféer runt. Var en idealisk plats att rota oss själva när vi utforskade staden med våra två små barn. Alla sov bra, köket var trevligt och lager med grunderna, inklusive kaffe och te, och vi kände oss riktigt säkra. Jag kunde inte föreställa mig en bättre plats i staden, särskilt till detta pris.

    Elisabeth2019-12-13T00:00:00Z
  • Liams plats är mycket mysig och ren. Och Liam svarade till oss i tid och var till stor hjälp :)) Vi har haft vår vistelse där. Välkomstmailen som Liam skickade till mig var mycket användbar, vägledde mig tydligt om hur jag skulle komma in i lägenheten, vilken typ av turistintressen i närheten eller i staden ... etc. Tack för att du är värd för oss.

Läget ligger nära floden och busshållplatsen. Men vi kan också nå centrum till promenad. Jag kommer att rekommendera den här lägenheten till alla mina vänner som kommer att besöka dublin.

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.

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!
  • Historiskt hem nära restauranger.

    James2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Härlig plats att bo, bra kommunikation med värden. Skulle rekommendera

    Victoria2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • En pärla i ett vackraste hus beläget i en av Dublins finaste georgiska torg. Lägenheten var utmärkt, var exakt som beskrivits. Vi skulle inte ha trott att det är möjligt, men det verkliga är ännu bättre än som visas på fotografierna. Karin är verkligen en super värd. Vi kunde inte ha bett om mer. Hon är riktigt vänlig, extremt lyhörd och hennes kommunikationer är kristallklara.

    Peter2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Denna plats är absolut perfektion! Det är fantastisk, mysigt, rent nära centrum och Karin är den perfekta värden

    Katy2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Karin var lätt att kommunicera med, hennes utrymme är vackert inredda och så unikt!

    Clarisse2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • Denna plats är charmig och vacker. Vi kunde gå till alla delar av Dublin härifrån. De gigantiska fönstren ser ut i parken, så pittoreska! Känns som hemma. Det är lite högt på natten, så öronproppar rekommenderas.

    Julia2019-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • En härlig plats i ett riktigt stadsdel i Dublin. Utrymmet var vackert dekorerat med ett bibliotek med irländska och Dublin reseböcker. Loftarrangemang var bra för oss eftersom vi båda är under 5'8 ”. Om du är 5 '10 "eller äldre kan jag förvänta mig några huvudstöt. Karin var nådig men lyhörd och effektiv Favorit pub i närheten var Ned Kelly's Hogan's Stand. Fråga om den smyga genvägen från pubens bakdörr! Lätt att använda AirCoach från flygplatsen släpper dig strax söder om Parnell street cirka 10 minuters promenad bort. Ta vänster och sedan Lätt uppåt promenad till parken. Rekommendera starkt om du vill vara borta från Temple Bar etc.

    Karl2019-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • Vi hade en underbar vistelse på Karins plats i Dublin och ett mycket varmt och enkelt välkomnande. Studion är fylld med intressanta dekorativa inslag och är både rymlig och härlig att vara i. Det är också en fantastisk plats för många platser. Mycket nöjd med vår erfarenhet.

    Dublin, County Dublin, Irland

    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!

  • Dardos rena och eleganta loft var det perfekta läget för oss att basera oss i Dublin för våra stadsäventyr och nära bussupphämtningar för våra otroliga dagsturer. Du har verkligen mitt i hjärtat av stadens centrum. Med det sagt så får du stadsbrus särskilt på fredagar och lördagar så om det stör dig, fungerade öronproppar helt fint! Det fanns gott om pubar, restauranger, shopping och andra tjänster i närheten. Dardo var en stor värd och var mycket lyhörd för våra frågor och var snabb med vår nyckelupphämtning. Det gick inte att be om en bättre värd och vi uppskattade hans rekommendationer! Tack igen Dardo för att vi tillät oss att använda ditt utrymme! Vi vill redan planera en resa tillbaka!

    Kelli2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Dardo kommunicerade riktigt bra genom hela och var verkligen tillmötesgående med oss. Vi landade i Dublin ganska tidigt och vi kunde släppa av våra väskor direkt, vilket gav oss tid att utforska. Lägenheten har ett perfekt läge och är mycket rent och snyggt. Vi kände oss riktigt säkra och tillgången och säkerheten till byggnaden var mycket bra. Lägenheten var mycket rymlig och vi kände oss väldigt bekväma där.

    Simon2020-02-19T00:00:00Z

  • En fantastisk plats! Platsen var otroligt liksom vyerna. Älskade att gå ut genom dörren och vara i hjärtat av allt det vi ville göra. Dardo var fantastisk, platsen var fantastisk ... en mycket bra upplevelse och jag hoppas få möjlighet att stanna där igen.

    Jack2020-01-26T00:00:00Z

  • Liams plats är i ett perfekt läge, dess rena, det är riktigt bra för familjer (dubbla barnvagnar kan till och med passa i hissen och ytterdörren till lägenheten). Köket är enkelt att använda. Tack för allt Liam.

    Simarjeet2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • Riktigt trevlig lägenhet med alla bekvämligheter och ett riktigt trevligt läge!

    Agustín2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • Platsen var mycket välutrustad. Den är även utrustad med en barnsäng, barnstol, tvättmaskin, torktumlare och diskmaskin. Jag älskar köket eftersom du kan hitta den utrustning du behöver för att göra en enkel måltid. Platsen var mycket bra. Det var bara 15 min promenad från shoppingområdet. Inom bara 3 minuters promenad kan du hitta några trevliga restauranger och en närbutik. Platsen är ren och bekväm. Kommer definitivt att stanna här igen om vi åker till Dublin igen.

    Shereen2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Livlig modern lägenhet!, På ett perfekt läge! Perfekt för de få dagarna vi stannade! Enkel åtkomst och Liam var en stor värd!

    Ross2019-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • Lägenheten känns som hemma, den är mysig och har allt vi behövde för vår vistelse. Super nära till allt. Jameson är i princip i din trädgård (2-3 min promenad om det). Kaféer utanför din dörr. Du kan gå överallt och vara där på 15 minuter! Liam var extremt lyhörd, incheckning var en bris och han ger dig fantastiska lokala tips. En fantastisk vistelse!

    Margaret2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • Liams plats ligger på en fantastisk plats. Allt i Dublin var gångbart och det finns ett fantastiskt kafé i nästa byggnad över det vi åkte till varje dag för frukost (Tredje rymden - starkt rekommenderat!) Det finns också en riktigt bra kaffeplats tvärs över gatan så att du verkligen har allt du kan behöva nära . Liam var lätt att kommunicera med och hjälpte oss med att hitta en plats att kolla våra väskor innan vi kunde kolla in på hans plats. Det finns en del konstruktion på gång tvärs över gatan som börjar ganska tidigt på morgonen på vardagar men det kan inte göras mycket åt det. Det hjälpte oss bara att komma ur sängen och komma igång eftersom det finns så mycket att göra och se!

  • Fantastisk vistelse för en lång helg i Dublin. Lägenheten är mycket bra!

    Louis2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Karins lägenhet var ett fantastiskt hem under min vecka i Dublin. Rummet var exakt som beskrivs och incheckning gjordes mycket enkelt med instruktioner som skickats av Karin i förväg, inklusive transiteringsalternativ från flygplatsen. Platsen är fantastisk, rummet är bekvämt och mysigt med ett fullt lager kök. Karin såg till och med att återbetala mig när varmvattenberedaren hade lite problem den första natten, vilket var mycket uppskattat. Hon strävar verkligen efter att se till att gästerna är bekväma, och jag skulle definitivt stanna igen.

  • Γιώργος2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Boendet var bekvämt och rent. Inte bara detta utan det ligger i ett gammalt georgianskt hus som är berömt på gatorna i Dublin. Platsen är idealisk eftersom det ligger nära centrum av Dublin, cirka 10-15 minuters promenad till Temple Bar (centrum av Dublin), dock inte för nära så att du hålls vaken av pubarna och barerna. Karin var mycket hjälpsam med all information och mycket insiktsfull med sina förslag på var man kan besöka. Rekommenderar starkt att bo i detta boende. Tack Karin för en underbar vistelse!

    Bradley2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Huset är väldigt bra, det är väldigt bekvämt, jag gillar det.

    Jiangying2019-09-11T00:00:00Z

  • Clare var definitivt en av de bästa värdarna som jag har stött på i alla mina Airbnb-vistelser. Jag kände mig välkommen att vara i hennes hem och hon ansåg graciöst mitt otäcka schema. Det var fantastiskt att komma ifrån galenskapen i centrum varje natt och ha en lugn vila i hennes lugna stadsdel. Jag rekommenderar inte bara att bo på hennes plats utan det är här jag ska bo nästa gång jag åker till Dublin.

    Sujie2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • Clare är en väldigt snäll dam. Hon erbjöd även mig en liten bilresa till busshållplatsen. Huset ligger i ett lugnt område nära parken och havet. Utsikten över havet är hisnande. Husets läge ligger också nära busshållplatsen, mycket övertygande!

    Maggie2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Clare var mycket välkomnande och var mycket snabb att svara på alla mina meddelanden och frågor. Rummet och badrummet var mycket rena! Tack!

    Lindsay2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • Mycket trevlig gästfrihet. Clare gör allt för att göra din vistelse så trevlig som möjligt.

    Niklas2019-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • Jag kunde inte få ett bättre mottagande än det jag fick hos Clare. Rent och fint hem. Hon tog mig med i sin bil och visade mig tillrätta den första dagen. Gav mig massor av tips om sevärdheter m.m. Bjöd mig på rejäl frukost varje dag samt även kvällsfika med te. Jag fick en känlsa av att vara som hemma och blev mycket väl omhändertagen på alla sätt. Parkering av bilen jag hyrt kunde jag parkera framför hennes hus. Dusch, toalett hade bra standard och alltid rent och snyggt.

  • Clare är en häpnadsväckande värd! Hon gav mig mycket information innan min ankomst samt tydliga instruktioner för att komma fram. Hon är trevlig, vänlig och förbereder fantastiska frukostar! Huset är oklanderligt rent och fullt möblerat! Fem stjärnor räcker helt klart inte!

    Lorenzo2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • Detta är ett bra ställe att bo. Clare är en fantastisk värd och mycket gästvänliga. Hon ger lokala tips och går ut ur sitt sätt att vara till hjälp. Det finns lokala bekvämligheter inom gångavstånd.

    Helen 2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Clare är en absolut docka! Detta är bara vår andra vistelse på en airvia men vi kunde inte be om en vänligare värd. Hon var så tillmötesgående och nådig och kommer att göra nästan vad som helst för att göra din vistelse angenäm. Hon har en underbar syn och humor och fantastiskt att prata med. Hennes hem är varmt och charmigt med allt du kan behöva. Clare gick utöver för att se till att vår vistelse var underbar. Vi saknar henne redan.

    Dublin 5, County Dublin, Irland

    My cottage is over 150 years old and is a complete oasis within 20 minutes of the city centre. Escape after a busy day of shopping and sightseeing to an old world cottage close to Clontarf Seafront, Clontarf Beach, St. Anne's Park, great restaurants & pubs, DART station, bus stops. You’ll love my place because of the old-world charm, the dogs and great location. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, families (with kids), and furry friends (pets).
    Your room is a cozy twin with wardrobe and dresser. It has views into the beautiful country garden.
    Clontarf is one of the most popular suburbs in Dublin, conveniently located within minutes of the city centre, but also boasting spectacular beaches, sea-front promenade, St. Anne's park and some of the finest cafes and restaurants the city has to offer.
  • Underbart hus i ett avskilt lugnt område. Lätt att komma in i Dublin och komma ut. Maire är en lysande värd och känner till alla bra ställen att gå.

    Lucy2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • Ingen nonsens perfekt plats när du anländer till Dublin Port

    Mike2019-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • Ett bra stopp nära bra läge för flygplatsen och färjeterminalen. Maire var en exceptionell värdinna som fick oss att känna oss mycket välkomna. Vi älskade att träffa hennes hund Setanta och hans kompis George, båda vänliga. Skulle stanna där igen!

    Eva2019-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • Att bo hos Maire var som att bo med familjen. Detta har varit den överlägset bästa upplevelsen i en air bnb. Vi tyckte om hennes sällskap, några skratt och lite vin! Det var en väldigt bra upplevelse! Hennes hem är väldigt lugnt, omgiven av en vacker trädgård och avskilt från livets rörelse i Dublin. Bussen stannar precis utanför huset och ligger bara 20 minuters resa in i staden. Maire gav oss hur man använder kollektivtrafik och var vi ska äta och se! Rekommenderar starkt.

    Jacob2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Underbar lugn plats. Lätt att nå med kollektivtrafik, så vi kunde göra alla typer av resor tidigt på morgonen i Irland utan bil.

    Hans2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • Tyvärr fick jag inte chansen att träffa Maire eftersom hon var utanför staden och besökte familjen, men hon svarade snabbt och såg till att vi kom in. Hennes hem var trevligt och mysigt. Det var undangömt från den livliga gatan så vi hade en lugn natt som vår kväll i Irland. Sängarna var bekväma och badrummet var trevligt. Vi har haft vår natt.

    Susie2019-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • Särskilt Maires uppriktiga natur sötnade vår vistelse. Stort tack för det varmt välkomnande och de trevliga konversationerna. Även om vi inte ens var 12 timmar på plats känner du dig väldigt bekväm där.

    My place in Donnycarney is centrally located and is situated in a quiet residential street in a quiet neighbourhood. It is about a fifteen/20 min taxi ride from airport. The city centre is only about a 12 minute bus drive and the bus stop is a mere four/five minutes walk from the house. The home is a small self-contained building in my back garden with its own private entrance giving guests complete privacy to come and go as they wish.
    My place in Donnycarney is centrally located and is situated in a quiet residential street in a quiet neighbourhood and although close to the hustle and bustle of the city centre it is away from all the noise. It is about a fifteen/20 min taxi ride from airport. Very close to Beaumont Hospital. 5 mins drive. The city centre is only about a 12 minute bus drive and the bus stop is a mere four/five minutes walk from the house. The home is self-contained with its own private entrance giving guests complete privacy to come and go as they wish. The space although small (approx 30 square metres) is lovely and bright, it is a little garden apartment within my back garden. It has a kitchen/living room, a separate bedroom and a bathroom with an electric shower. In the living room there although there is a TV, there is no cable but it does have access to movies and popular series’s etc through Netflixs. There is also separate Wi-Fi connection. The couch in the living room converts to a couch bed which would be suitable for children. We do not make this bed up on arrival however once given advance warning that the bed is required I will provide fresh bedding. If there is a small toddler arriving there is a small fold out kids mattress on top of the wardrobe. If a baby is arriving a pack and play. An older child/children could stay on the couch bed The kitchen which although has limited cooking facilities does include a four ring hob and a separate small tabletop oven so ideal if you would like to throw something together or stick a pizza on. there is complimentary tea and coffee, milk, light breakfast cereals et cetera. As the space is in my back garden you have access to the entire space and you are more than welcome to sit in the garden if you wish, please just note that it has not as yet been finished so if you are looking for an abundance flowers and plants etc, you may be disappointed. There is also a small friendly very old dog who sometimes might be in the back garden, she’s extremely friendly so no need to worry. Although we check a few times a day there may be a time or two when she has an “accident” Don’t worry it will be removed promptly! My neighbourhood is very accessible to the city centre with numerous and plenty full buses that service the area it is also very close to the Dart station (killester) which is only a 10 minute walk away, this makes the apartment very accessible to any destination on the Dart line for example the beautiful fishing village of Howth where there are some amazing eateries and pubs et cetera particularly if you love your seafood! Also along the Dart line is the beautiful coastal village of Malahide which again has great pubs and eateries but is also home to the amazing Malahide Castle which is set in a beautiful park and playground et cetera. Closer to home and if you would like to see a beautiful national monument I am only five minute walk from the Casino Marino (it really is a hidden treasure), look up its history in the internet
    Donnycarney is a suburban area so a lot of families, elderly people live nearby. It is only minutes to walk to supermarket, a couple of pubs, church, restaurants, take aways and transport links to city, or Dart station. The space is also very close to Beaumont Hospital.
  • Jag kände verkligen hemma! Jag stannade där i två veckor när jag åkte till Dublin på affärsresa. Du har allt du behöver för att vara bekväm även för en lång vistelse. Avstånd till centrum är bara cirka 15 minuter med buss, och om du behöver åka norrut, som det var mitt fall, var det också mycket bekvämt och cirka 10 min bilresa. Antoinette är alltid glad över att hjälpa och för att vara ärlig var det en lättnad att hon var precis framför, för fall! Tack så mycket, jag skulle definitivt välja detta boende igen !!!

    Ángela2019-12-14T00:00:00Z
  • Perfekt läge, perfekt värd. Antoinette var där när det behövdes, men lämnade mig till mina egna enheter resten om tiden, som passade mig :) På baksidan av trädgården, men det fungerar för alla.

    Martin2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • Antoinettes plats var ett stort frist för oss efter långa dagar med sightseeing. Hon lämnade några frukostartiklar som fungerade perfekt för oss när vi måste vara på turnébussen super tidigt. Det var väldigt ett hem hemifrån och erbjöd de varelser bekvämligheter som du kommer att behöva när du reser. Hon var mycket uppmärksam och skulle checka in, och vi rekommenderar denna plats till vem som helst!

    Chasmin2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • Detta är en fantastisk lägenhet.

    Frankie2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Detta är en liten GEM av en plats. Det är i ett lugnt bostadsområde men det är lätt att komma in i stan på din cykel eller ta buss. Antoinettes lite tankeväckande inslag är fantastiskt, och platsen är obefläckad ren och varm och inbjudande.

  • Derek har ett vackert hem, lättillgängligt med bil och tåg (och buss men vi testade inte det). Endast tre tåg stannar in i staden. Han var härlig och gav oss massor av bra tips för hur vi skulle få ut mesta möjliga av vår tid i Dublin. Skulle rekommendera.

  • Vi älskade vår tid här! Stor plats, vi hade en bil och kunde köra till Central Dublin inga problem. Flat kom med många förslag och var väl utrustad. Mycket rent och mysigt. Donna var härlig och var mycket hjälpsam. Rekommenderar starkt att bo här för ett besök i Dublin

    Andi2019-10-18T00:00:00Z

    Andrew2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • Vår första gång i Irland. Donna var stor och mycket resursstark. Snabb körning till flygplatsen. Kanske 20 minuter i staden. Utrymmet och de erbjudna bekvämligheterna var perfekt för oss. Rekommenderas starkt.

    Daniel2019-10-12T00:00:00Z

    Nicole2019-10-08T00:00:00Z

    Carissa2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • Donnas loft var helt perfekt för vår korta lilla vistelse i Dublin. Platsen ligger inom gångavstånd från ett köpcentrum med olika butiker. Loftet var gnistrande rent och var mycket mysigt! Tyvärr hade min man och jag inte möjlighet att träffa Donna personligen, men det kändes som om hon var där med sina snabba svar på meddelanden! Efter att vår flygning hade försenats flera gånger öppnade Donna även graciöst loftet för oss tidigt, vilket också var mycket uppskattat! Massor av flygblad för takeaways tillgängliga liksom för människor att tänka på! I listan anges att färska kakor med mjölk och te skulle vänta på oss när vi anlände, som vi ivrigt väntade på ... det fanns dock inga. Det är också viktigt att notera att frukosten serveras själv (gör egna ägg). Tyvärr hade vi en tidig aktivitet planerad för nästa dag så vi när vi sov lite, vi slutade snabbt inte tid att göra äggen. Sammantaget en underbar vistelse och vi skulle absolut stanna där igen! Nästa gång skulle vi förhoppningsvis vara i området i mer än en natt!

    Christina2019-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • Donna var en mycket hjälpsam och vänlig värd! Vi stannade kvar med ett litet barn, och hon kunde inte ha gjort vår vistelse smidigare!

    Andrea2019-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • Du kan förvänta dig att allt blir glittrande rent och lätt att hitta. Närheten till flygplatsen är mycket praktisk!

  • Jag hade bra kommunikation med Tony, tack så mycket för att du lyssnade på min dåliga erfarenhet och jag är så glad för att ha gott humör igen. Toniken är ett bra värd slag och sjukhus. Har en trevlig resa, hoppas du glad varje dag!

  • Härligt par som gör allt för att ditt besök ska vara så bra som möjligt. Gångavstånd till dart som tar dig till centrala Dublin på några minuter. Jag kan definitivt rekommendera denna (super) värd!

  • Rent fint sovrum. Enkel incheckning. Tony och hans fru var trevliga och såg efter mig, veta att jag var en soloartistisk kvinnlig resenär. Jag skulle stanna här igen och rekommendera detta till vem som helst.

    Sammi2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Tony & Dolores erbjuder ett enkelt, rent och prisvärt utrymme. Perfekt för affärsresenärer eller turister.

  • Frances är härlig och omtänksam - jag skulle rekommendera platsen bara för henne! Dessutom är huset mycket rent, sängen comfy och duschen varm! Den har alla bekvämligheter du kan behöva, är en trevlig tio minuters promenad till pilen i ett lugnt område och känns helt enkelt välkomnande och bekväma! Jag kommer definitivt tillbaka!

  • Vad du kan förvänta dig är utöver den genomsnittliga AirBnB-vistelsen! Frances är en av de mest älskvärda och vänliga värdarna och bostäderna är exakt som publicerade. Jag stannade i 5 dagar, bara behövde en plats att sova och koppla av mellan äventyr och det var just det, ett hem hemifrån. Kommer att besöka Frances igen i framtiden.

  • Frances är en härlig värd och allt fungerade bra under vistelsen. Hennes hus ligger i ett bostadsområde, men lätt att nå från Dublin centrum. Om du letar efter ett lugnt område är det ett utmärkt val.

    A quaint single bedroom which is bright and sunny in the front of the house. Has a built in wardrobe and chest of drawers .Very comfortable room with bedside lamp for reading.
    we are only 15 minutes from the AIRPORT.
    We have lived in our house for the last 27 years and it has been wonderful, it's a quite neighbourhood and you'll have no problemgetting a good night's sleep. If you come by car your car will be safe outside under the tree. If you have to use public transport the bus stop is 5 minutes from our house into the city centre.
  • Jag älskar att bo på din plats! Ett hem fullt av kärlek. Skulle gärna komma tillbaka. Jag besökte stora företag men tiden hemma hos AirBnb var lika underbar som mina skäl till att jag kom dit. kan inte vänta med att gå tillbaka och jag skulle garanterat bo på Bernadettes plats. Amy den mest underbara och sötaste hunden kommer att vara i mitt hjärta precis som familjen Bernadette, kändes som en i familjen de 3 underbara dagarna jag stannade där. all information jag fick redan innan jag åkte hjälpte mig och min grupp på 17 eftersom ingen hade så bra information som jag hade från min härliga Airbnb-familj. kan inte vänta med att komma tillbaka dit!

    Rassmus2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Min första Airbnb-logi någonsin och det kunde inte bli bättre. Omedelbart efter ankomst fick jag en kopp te, rostat bröd och bra researråd från Bernadette. Hon var så hjälpsam från bokningstillfället till slutet av min vistelse i Dublin. Huset ligger ganska från centrum (i en lugn plats), men det är inte problem tack vare stor kollektivtrafik i staden. Jag älskade också hunden Amy som var vänlig sedan första gången jag träffade henne :) .. Om jag någonsin kommer att åka till Dublin i framtiden kommer jag att vara så glad att träffa Bernie och hennes familj igen!

    Martin2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • Rummet är litet men super rent och mysigt, med kaffe och te hela dagen. Köket är också välutrustat. Bernadette är helt underbart. Jag gillar verkligen att jag bor där. Hon får mig att känna att jag besöker min moster i Irland. Ibland vill jag inte ens gå till stadens centrum, vill bara stanna i huset och tillbringa tid med henne och hennes vackra damhund Amy! Tack för att du värt mig varmt!

    Lola2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • För en social upplevelse är detta platsen för dig! Jag skriver normalt inte recensioner på Airbnb, men det här fallet är undantag för det var verkligen otroligt. Att bo med Bernadette och Martin var den mest fantastiska upplevelsen jag någonsin har haft på en Airbnb. Deras vänlighet och gästfrihet är praktiskt taget oöverträffad. För alla resenärer som vill träffa lokalbefolkningen och ha roliga samtal över te eller öl, är detta platsen för dig! De kommer att gå utöver för att se till att din upplevelse i Dublin är den bästa den kan vara - tillhandahåller inte bara ett underbart rum utan också bra och användbara reseråd som gör att resa i staden blir en bris. De är verkligen några av de bästa människorna du någonsin möter och jag känner mig väldigt lycklig att jag valde denna plats som mitt boende under min korta vistelse i Dublin. När jag återvänder till Dublin kommer jag absolut bo här igen. Tack en miljon, Bernie och Martin!

    Beautiful accommodation in a lovely part of Dublin. The centre of Dublin is on your doorstep with two very short stops away at a cost of €2 return. There are lots of shops bars and restaurants within walking distance. Beautiful seafront walks nearby. The fishing village of Howth is also two stops on the train where you will find the amazing Howth Cliff walk, fish restaurants and trad music bars also serving food. Is so close to the house 5 bus routes stop right outside your door to city.
    Lovely double bedroom with free wifi and lots of wardrobe space. Tea and coffee available day and night along with bottled water. The kitchen is a short walk down the glazed link. Large bathroom just outside your bedroom door. Electric shower so there is always hot water available. Very comfortable surroundings with shops bars and restaurants within walking distance of the house. Taxi service available but there are lots of taxis that drive past the house day and night. Your room is yours for the duration of your stay and you will be provided with a key to lock the door in your absence. I also have another double room available if there are more than two guests. Please check availability here https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/25644991?guests=1&adults=1
    This area is very convenient for moving around the city. It's also fifteen minutes away from the beautiful fishing village of Howth which has amazing Restaurent's and bars playing traditional music along with fabulous cliff walks. My home is also in walking distance of the sea. The Dart (train) runs every 15 minutes and will take you to the centre of Dublin in ten minutes at a cost of €2 return. This is practically on my doorstep. It will also take you to the bus station should you want to take a day trip to Galway, cliffs of Moher or any of the beautiful wild Atlantic way city's in Ireland.
  • Ann är mycket uppmärksam och ger många tips om saker att göra. Platsen är riktigt bra, tåg och buss ligger precis utanför dörren! Vi hade färsk frukt till frukost varje dag, liksom bröd, sylt, smör, ... vi har verkligen haft det! Boendet rekommenderas starkt och vi kommer att bo med Ann igen på vår nästa resa till Dublin!

    Waltraud2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Ann är en underbar värd. Hon är varm och välkomnande och har ett vackert, rent hem med en mycket bekväm säng. Ann är härlig och snäll. Hon gick utöver när jag berättade för henne om min allergi. Hon såg till att jag hade något jag kunde äta när hon inte behövde ❤ Hon tillhandahåller en överdådig frukost med ett stort utbud av kaffe och te. Hon rymde också en tidigare incheckning och gav tips om saker att göra i Irland och sevärdheter att se. Hon rekommenderade en dagstur utanför Dublin som visade sig vara fantastisk. Hennes hus är mycket lättillgängligt från centrum eftersom det bara är 2 minuter från DART-järnvägsstationen, från vilken du också kan komma till Howth, som är en vacker kuststad, jag rekommenderar att vandra (du kan göra en vacker vandring längs en klippa), pubar och sevärdheterna och tågresan dit är mindre än 30 minuter lång. Jag kommer definitivt att bo igen med Ann nästa gång jag är i Dublin. ❤

    Belu2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Helt underbart ställe att bo. Allt är mycket välorganiserat, mousserande rent, frukosten var härlig och serveras med omsorg. Platsen är fantastisk, bara ett kvarter att fånga för att träna var som helst. Det fanns en bra plats nära att gå till en bit. Ann är en pärla från en värd, önskar att jag kunde ha stannat kvar i en månad. Härligt hus, härlig vistelse, härlig människa. A + upplevelse

    Roen2019-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • Ann är så vänlig och varm och välkomnande, med användbara tips och rekommendationer. Ann's house har ett fantastiskt läge, bara en minut från tågstationen - för att åka norr eller söder - och är superkomfortabelt och hemtrevligt. Jag stannade i tre nätter direkt från planet från Australien och kunde inte ha bett om något mer! Tack Ann!

    Sarah2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • Ann är en härlig person och en stor värd. Boendet är mycket bekväma och superren. Hon har en vänlig katt. Perfekt platsblock från DART och lokala busshållplatser, vilket gör kollektivtrafiken i hela Irland tillgänglig utan bil.

    Elizabeth2019-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • Ann's place är den perfekta platsen för ditt besök i Dublin. Inte bara är hennes hem bekväma, rena och vackert dekorerade, Ann gav oss en riklig och utsökt frukost! Vi kände verkligen bortskämda på Ann, och hennes hem är bekvämt beläget! Det är en snabb tågresa från stadens centrum och en snabb bilresa från flygplatsen. Området är också otroligt säkert och lugnt, vilket gör det till ett perfekt resmål för alla som vill koppla av och njuta av Dublin. Vi kommer säkert tillbaka!

    Position, Position, Position. The best spot for sight-seeing, cafes, shopping & the night life of Dublin! You are literally at the Spire on O'Connell St. The bedsit is the perfect base from which to explore Dublin. Featuring keyless, digital entry, 24/7 check in, the apartment has all you need. Including a double bed, instantaneous shower, plus microwave, toaster & kettle. It's on the second floor, Cable TV & fast wifi. Great position and very experienced company run by super hosts!
    For light to early sleepers: Due to it's central location, there can be some street noise, so bringing some ear plugs may be advisable. Paper towels are not provided - this is a choice for the environment and the future. We do not supply face cloths, sorry - our linen company does not stock them. Recently renovated, with a small bathroom but the benefits of an instant shower, and kitchenette including kettle, toaster, microwave, fridge, plates, utensils, cutlery etc. Like all of our apartments, this has all a traveler needs to 'live like a local', in style, and see the sights, without having to take public transport everywhere, or to hire a car. Like your own hotel room! Shower might not suit very tall people.......
    The neighbourhood is vibrant and lively and has some fantastic restaurants near by. The area has recently included the Luas tram line which is only steps away from the accommodation. Please check our recommendations in the home manual!

We also have Howth close by a beautiful village by the sea with loads to see and do there...you can get to Howth by the dart which is a 20minute walk away.

  • Ciara är en härlig dam som är en nådig och hjälpsam värd. Stugan är härlig. Privat, tyst och ett paus efter en dag med utforskning i Dublin. Hon lämnar eftertänksamma detaljer såsom stapelvaruhandeln och en användbar lista över närliggande platser att köpa beställningar. Låt inte dess plats på en karta lura dig; Det är en trevlig bussresa från centrala Dublin och hållplatserna ligger precis utanför samhället där stugan ligger. Händer ned, det bästa värdet i boende i Dublin-området. Bra gjort, Ciara!

    W Tomas2019-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • Vi har haft vistelse här i 3 nätter. Clara var mycket vänliga och hjälpsamma. Vi använde pendelbussen från Hilton-hotellet, en 10 minuters promenad från Ciara, till Dublin flygplats för 2 euro. Detta gör hennes plats mycket tillgänglig.

  • Värden var fantastisk och mycket hjälpsam - vi kunde kolla in sent utan problem eftersom vi hatar en sen flygning. Det fanns också några livsmedel och snacks tillhandahålls tillsammans med en mycket detaljerad och användbar anmärkning som går över allt. Platsen var annorlunda än vad jag använder som sin i värdens bakgård men det var inte ett problem. Vi skulle definitivt stanna här igen.

    Jason2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • Perfekt läge i ett mycket snyggt område. Hur Rory närmar sig sina gäster är fantastiskt. Han hade tips och tog oss (4 personer) till busshållplatsen och till stationen. Det viktigaste för oss var att allt var obefläckat!

Bäst av allt var vår värd som är generös och snäll, vänlig och kunnig, bra att prata med men inte påträngande. Vi skulle gärna bo där igen. Tack så mycket Rory för all din hjälp.

    Jane2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Mycket trevligt hus och läge, och fantastisk värd.

    Ivan2019-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • Vi blev mycket väl mottagna av Rory, fann vi en härlig hus i ett mycket lugnt och trivsamt område. Rory är en mycket bra värd, vi var tvungna att lämna mycket tidigt för flygplatsen och Rory är upp till oss att göra kaffe! Mycket trevligt av honom. Rum och badrum var mycket ren och fin. Tack än en gång

    Clontarf, Dublin, Irland

    The house is a terraced house in a quiet cul de sac in Dublin, just 10 min away from the airport by car and 20 min away from the city centre by bus. There are groceries, pharmacy and places to grab food 2 min away by foot, as well as a bus stop where one can take a bus to the city centre every 5-10 minutes. 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.

  • Imelda har ett vackert hus. Lätt att komma till huvudvägen för kollektivtrafik eller att beställa taxi. Bra valuta för pengarna!

    Clare2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Hon är riktigt trevlig och snäll person. Rummet är också så trevligt, rengörs mycket väl. Värden försöker också kommunicera och lyssna på min fråga med flexibilitet. Det var underbar upplevelse.

    HoYong2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Imelda är en stor värd och går ur vägen för att få sina gäster att känna sig som hemma. Platsen är lite långt från stadens centrum men centrum är lättillgängligt därifrån.

    Emily2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Gillade verkligen min vistelse, rekommenderar - jag kommer tillbaka!

    Ruth2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • En härlig plats, skulle rekommendera. Imelda var välkomnande och det var fantastiskt att ha tillgång till köket.

    Ruth2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • Mycket ren och varm plats. Jag skulle rekommendera det. Dessutom finns det många alternativ för frukost och lite extra mat kvar till ditt förfogande. Och busshållplatsen för att komma till staden är ganska nära Imelda's.

    Tamara2019-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • Imelda är en härlig värd som ger dig all information du behöver för din resa. Hennes plats är söt och mysig. Jag rekommenderar verkligen.

    Allesandra2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • Imelda är en tankeväckande och snäll värd. Jag kände mig väldigt bekväm på hennes plats. Hon välkomnade mig i sitt hus lämnade tips om hur man skaffar buss och taxi, användbara appar, det finns bekvämligheter om du glömmer att ta med något, frukosten ingår vilket är mycket trevligt. Jag hade en fantastisk upplevelse. Tack, Imelda! :)

  • Jag gillar ;)

    Luiz2019-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastiskt ställe!! Skulle stanna där igen och njuta av personalen och den gästvänliga miljön!

    Staci2019-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastiskt alternativ för en billig säng i en dyr stad.

    Cullen2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • Det är ett riktigt bra vandrarhem. Mitt rum blev lite illaluktande men återigen fanns det 18 personer så det förväntades. Jag kommer definitivt att rekommendera och kommer tillbaka snart.

    Victoria2019-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • Jag hade en fantastisk vistelse i Dublin och förmögenheten att bo på ett bra vandrarhem. Du lär känna många trevliga människor med olika bakgrund och personalen är mycket tillmötesgående.

    Liesa2019-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • Mycket ren plats, kvaliteten på tjänsten är riktigt bra. Vandrarhemmet ligger mycket väl i stadens centrum med busstationer och restauranger i närheten.

    Romane2019-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • Detta var min första gång i Irland så jag var inte riktigt säker på vad jag skulle förvänta mig alls. Min hela erfarenhet på Gardiner var verkligen roligt. Personalen var stor och hade bra med kommunikation. En av personalen meddelade mig i realtid medan jag kom från flygplatsen för att hitta min väg till Gardiner. Allt var extremt rent. De städade badrummen och duschar 4 gånger om dagen. Personalen var mycket hjälpsam med vägbeskrivningar och aktiviteter att göra. Sammantaget var personalen stor, platsen var mycket ren och samhället var mycket inkluderande. Jag rekommenderar starkt och kommer att stanna med Gardiner när jag återvänder till Dublin.

    Hannah2019-10-09T00:00:00Z

    Roberto2019-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • Annie var riktigt trevlig och svarade alltid på våra frågor riktigt snabbt. Våra rum var riktigt mysigt och rent, lite litet för två personer men precis som bilderna! Det var perfekt för att stanna några dagar. Läget var riktigt bra, nära stadens centrum. Badrummet är gemensamt med andra gäster, men om de personer du delar huset med är trevliga och respektfulla är det inte ett problem! Vi rekommenderar det definitivt.

    Giulia2019-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • En riktigt bekväm plats. Nära till Airlink-bussen, hopp på och av turbussen oick up plats. Ganska rakt fram och är nöjd !!

  • Mycket rent svarade Annie mycket snabbt och gav lokala råd, tack!

    Freya2019-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • Stor plats, 2 min promenad från Connolly station så jag rekommenderar starkt eftersom det är lätt att komma till stadens centrum promenader eller luas. Väldigt ren. Stor värd.

    Catherine2019-07-06T00:00:00Z

    Dublin, County Dublin, Irland

    Newly renovated, funky little flat located 5 minute walk from the spire, O'Connell St - where all tours, buses, trams depart from. Featuring a compact, open plan kitchen/diner and chic living room for relaxing in with a double bed, providing comfortable sleeping arrangements for 2 people. In a historic Georgian terrace only a short walk from restaurants, supermarkets; pubs; cafes; it's cosy fit out is superbly rounded off by it's convenient proximity to the major attractions.
    - The apartment is on the third floor, but there is no lift in the building. - Light or early sleepers should bring ear plugs due to some street noise caused by weekends revelers returning home late. - Paper towels are not provided - this is a choice for the environment and the future. - We do not supply face cloths, sorry - our linen company does not stock them. - A bathroom and kitchen, with the benefits of an electric, instant shower and all you need to cook, including kettle, toaster, hob, fridge and pots, pans and trays. Like all of our apartments, this has all a traveler needs to 'live like a local' and see the sights, without having to take public transport everywhere, or to hire a car........
    The apartment is perfectly located for exploring the city; all of the city's cultural institutions are within walking distance and the transport connections are excellent 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). 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 South of us, does a good Irish breakfast in comfortable surroundings. 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).
  • Precis som förväntat! Bra läge och nära busshållplatser! Älskade det!

    Megan2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Simon och hans team är mycket bra värdar. De svarar snabbt och processen för in- och utcheckning är mycket enkel. Platsen är också mycket bra. Den ensamma uppmärksamheten är att du måste ta 3 trappor för att komma till lägenheten på översta våningen. Och de är väldigt smala och svåra att klättra om du har stort bagage. Så var medveten om du har barn, är äldre eller har mycket med dig. Annars bra tid där. Enkelt men trevligt.

    Luis Felipe2019-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • Simons plats var riktigt trevligt. En gedigen tio minuters promenad från många barer / restauranger och shopping. Platsen var mycket liten men söt. Allt var rent. Trappan upp till lägenheten med bagage var lite utmattande, måste definitivt vara försiktig. Men totalt sett var det en trevlig vistelse.

    Jessica2019-12-04T00:00:00Z
  • Detta är en härlig lägenhet i en riktigt cool del av Dublin. Simon och hans team var så snälla och snabba att svara på alla mina meddelanden. Jag skulle absolut rekommendera detta utrymme för alla som bor i Dublin om det är tillgängligt, du kommer inte ångra det!

    Kathleen2019-11-13T00:00:00Z
  • Perfekt läge att besöka staden, mycket nära till allt. Simon gav oss all information vi behövde i tid.
