Experience authentic Georgian elegance is this unique large OVAL studio apartment, overlooking park. Accommodates two in cosy sleeping loft. Light a fire, cook dinner in the designer kitchen, and then head out to enjoy the attractions of the city.
Come stay in one of Dublin's unique Georgian apartments, a perfect oval room, situated on Mountjoy Square, in the heart of Dublin's North Georgian core, and just minutes from O'Connell Street. This large studio apartment is on the ground floor of a beautiful redbrick townhouse, built in 1792. Both house and apartment retain all their original features, combined with modern comforts. The apartment has a fantastic 10ft window and overlooks a quiet side street, with an oblique view of the park. It has a working black Kilkenny marble fireplace with a spectacular gilt over-mantle mirror. The log basket is fully stocked with fuel- we charge cost price on an 'honour system'.

A small library of Irish books, and DVD's is available. The bedroom is upstairs and overlooks the apartment. It has a comfortable contract-quality double bed, Siberian white goose down duvet and pillows and pure Pima/Egyptian cotton sheets. Read in comfort with vintage Anglepoise reading lights. PLEASE NOTE there is restricted headroom in the sleeping loft, and consequently, the bed is low. ALSO, while the apartment faces a relatively quiet side street, it is on the corner of a fairly busy main road, so there will be traffic noise....

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 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!
  • Um lugar encantador que pode caminhar até muitos ótimos restaurantes.

  • A nossa estadia com Karin foi realmente incrível. A propriedade é linda e tem grande quantidade de personalidade e charme. Está bem situado a 15/20 minutos a pé de toda a ação, dependendo de onde você deseja ir. Karin era uma fonte de conhecimento e uma alegria para conversar. Suas dicas para Dublin e a história da casa foram excelentes e contribuíram para o prazer de ficar em um prédio antigo tão grandioso. O alojamento estava bem equipado e limpo. Não espere todos os confortos modernos mais recentes, essa é uma propriedade de período e isso faz parte de seu charme maravilhoso - e não queríamos nem precisávamos de nada que não estivesse lá. Havia um pequeno problema com a água quente, mas Karin lidou com isso com rapidez e muita desculpa. Nada foi demais para Karin. Esta é uma base fantástica para um fim de semana fora. Eu recomendaria 100% a qualquer amigo e voltaremos no futuro.

    Jack2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Fácil de seguir as instruções para chegar e entrar no apartamento. Respostas muito rápidas. O apartamento em si estava em uma localização perfeita, a uma curta distância de quase tudo. Exatamente o que precisávamos!

  • Este apartamento é o local perfeito para ficar para explorar Dublin. Uma cozinha bem equipada facilita a noite e o anfitrião forneceu informações úteis sobre a região quando chegamos. Altamente recomendado!

  • Sem brincadeira quando digo que é exatamente isso que eu escolheria se pudesse ter qualquer apartamento :) é tão adorável, com um toque de história, a sala redonda é realmente única e é muito aconchegante. A localização era fantástica, você está a poucos passos do trânsito e a cerca de 20 minutos a pé de qualquer coisa que você queira ver enquanto estiver na cidade. Minha única crítica é que o chuveiro é muito pequeno, portanto, esteja ciente de que você é uma pessoa grande! É bom ter acesso a uma cozinha totalmente equipada, e Karin e Jackie estavam muito ansiosas para ajudar de qualquer forma durante a minha estadia. Eu absolutamente recomendo!

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..
  • Existem alguns AirBnBs que são como unicórnios: tão raros que quase são considerados míticos. As ofertas de Karin são unicórnios. Absolutamente perfeitamente situado em Dublin: acessível a praticamente todos os lugares e na linha de ônibus para todo o resto. Restaurantes e cafés, museus e parques ficam bem ao lado. As acomodações estão além do reino em calor e hospitalidade. Era como ser acolhido em casa em um lugar que eu acabara de chegar: belas obras de arte, cama confortável, despensa bem abastecida e lareira. Uma lareira em funcionamento. As janelas davam para uma bela praça e eu mencionei uma lareira. Foi tudo o que pude fazer para sair do apartamento e dar uma olhada em Dublin. Mal posso esperar para voltar e espero que todos possam experimentar a calorosa hospitalidade de Karin e uma dela suas ofertas perfeitamente apontadas.

    Sara2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Loft histórico encantador, ótimo para uma estadia em Dublin. O edifício é bonito e tinha detalhes encantadores, incluindo os lírios. Karin também respondeu prontamente às mensagens. A única desvantagem é que muitos moradores disseram que o bairro não é o mais seguro, então acabamos levando táxis para casa todas as noites.

    Aubri2019-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • Refúgio acolhedor perfeito. Muito limpo e confortável. Com todos os toques para fazer você se sentir no coração de Dublin.

  • Comecei minha experiência no AirBnB com Karin em 2013 e fiquei encantada em retornar a um apartamento diferente em sua bela casa georgiana para esta estadia com o marido a reboque. Era tão adorável quanto eu me lembrava. O mobiliário é bonito, a cozinha muito bem equipada e o local é elegante e confortável. Há tudo aqui para uma estadia encantadora., Uma que você não esquecerá. Há bons restaurantes por perto ou supermercados, se você preferir ficar. Tudo é realmente bem pensado. Todo o lugar é lindo. Você não pode dar errado, e eu nunca ficaria em outro lugar em Dublin.

    Katie2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Apartamento aconchegante, único e bem equipado, com muitas informações sobre lugares para visitar e comer etc., ótimos livros e DVDs ... poderíamos ter ficado felizes em ficar !! Karin e Jackie eram fáceis de se comunicar e rápidos de responder, havia ovos, leite, geléias, smoothies ... uma ótima seleção de itens básicos e muito mais perfeitos, pois estávamos exaustos quando chegamos e não precisávamos ir. direto para fazer compras! Conseguimos deixar nossas malas no último dia e pegar emprestado um guarda-chuva ... Gostaria de visitar Dublin novamente e com certeza gostaria de ficar no Quarto Oval novamente :)

    Helen2019-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • Lindo apartamento, realmente muito exuberante. A cama era muito confortável, a cozinha tinha tudo o que você precisava - até tinha leite, ovos, café, chá, bom e iogurte. Eu poderia ter me mudado! Muito perto do centro de Dublin, não muito longe para caminhar.

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

The dentist is happy to see people on an emergency basis. Call for appointment. Tel:(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) blocks away, going West) NORTHSIDE LOCAL RESTAURANTS: 'The Cobalt Cafe', in a beautiful Georgian house on North Great Georges Street, which doubles as a gallery, is great for lunch. Parnell Street, Dublin's emerging 'Chinatown' is just a half a block to the south. Newly opened, on Parnell Square West is 'Mr Fox', serving modern Irish food in a smart and comfortable setting, by the same team who operate Dublin's much lauded 'The Pig's Ear' on Nassau Street, overlooking the Trinity College playing fields.. '147 Cafe' at 147, Parnell Street East, opp the Marlborough Street junction, serve good Illy coffee, and great sandwiches, daytime hours. Nearer the river, 'Le Bon Crubeen' (crubeen=pig's trotter- it's a modern Franco-Irish restaurant) is on Talbot Street, as is the venerable and immensely popular 'Talbot 101'. It is packed to the gunnels with locals between 5.54 and 7.15, enjoying their pre-theatre supper before the Abbey curtains rise at 7.30, when they relinquish their seats for the rest of us! On the riverfront, I love Panem, facing the Millennium Bridge, for a quick coffee and a delicious Sicilian almond biscuit, baked on the premises. A few doors down, you'll find a cluster of Italian bars, cafes and restaurants serving good quality food. Half a block to the east is the trendy 'Winding Stairs' restaurant, with its book-lined walls (relics of a former second-hand bookshop-cum-cafe of the same name); The woollen Mills on the corner of Liffey street does great casual food, including excellent brunch. Back on Capel Street, locals rave about Brother Hubbard, and the Soup Dragon, for lunch. Blas cafe in the Chocolate Factory, on Kings Inn Street, off Parnell Street West has an interesting, casual menu, in a bright, spacious and funky former factory (daytime). LOCAL PUBS include the 'Hill 16' just opposite the house, on Gardiner Street - very popular with the GAA crowd on match days (the Gaelic Athletic Association Stadium, Croke Park, is just 3 blocks to the east), they pull a superb 'pint'. ‘The Heritage Parnell’, on Parnell Street West, just around the corner from O’Connell Street, does 'pub grub'. 'The Flowing Tide', on the corner of Marlborough Street, opposite the Abbey Theatre, is one of my favorites - after the curtain goes down in the Abbey, half the cast are likely to be at the bar. A few doors closer to O’Connell Street is Mulligan’s, another very nice pub, dating from the Edwardian era. 'The Church' on Mary Street, in a converted 1720's church, is another fine place for a drink; the former owner won many accolades for the high quality of the restoration. Capel Street has many typical local pubs, which have the added benefit of serving a largely local population. They include 'O’Neill’s' and 'Slattery's which is good for music. 'The Black Sheep' has the local craft beers covered, and does good bar food, (as does its sister pub, ‘The Brew Dock’, on Store Street, at the bottom of Gardiner Street. The north side traditional music 'musician’s' bar is 'The Cobblestone', at the top of Smithfield, and is suitably grungy. DEPARTMENT STORES AND FASHION Henry Street, off O’Connell Street, at the SPIRE, is the premier shopping street on the north side of the river. Here you will find Arnott’s the local department store, which highlights Irish fashion and design, throughout the store, and has several nice cafes. Henry Street also contains large branches of Debenhams and Marks&Spencers, as well as branches of most of the high street fashion chains. There are two large shopping centres, the Jervis, with a large branch of Tesco’s in the Basement, and the ILAC, which has a Dunne's Department Store, with a Food Hall in the basement. (You can shop for fresh produce on adjacent Moore Street, Dublin's oldest street market, now also home to a thriving cluster of ethnic food markets and restaurants.) NORTHSIDE CULTURAL ATTRACTIONS The North side of Parnell Square is home to the city's Hugh Lane Gallery of Modern Art; we share a significant collection of Impressionist painting with the Tate Gallery in London, part of the Hugh Lane Bequest, which is rotated in seven-year cycles. (The cafe, overlooking an interior garden, is called 'Hatch'; the original is in the basement of the 'Little Museum of Dublin' on St. Stevens Green). Next door is the Writer's Centre, and next door again, is the Writer's Museum, with a Michelin-starred restaurant in the basement, the amazing Chapter One. Down on the East side of Parnell Square is the beautiful jewel-box that is the Gate Theatre - part of the 18th-century entertainment complex established by the entrepreneurial Dr. Bartholomew, to help support his new Rotunda Maternity Hospital (the oldest purpose-built such hospital in the world, and still delivering babies on a daily basis, 270 years later (9000 in 2012). You could be seated in either the Abbey or Gate Theatres within 10 minutes of leaving the house, and the James Joyce Cultural Centre is even closer, on North Great Georges Street (don't forget to check out the Cobalt Cafe, opposite). Hop on the Luas Red Line, going west, in Abbey Street, halfway between Mountjoy Square and the river, and alight ‘Museum’ stop. The National Museum, Collins Barracks, housed in an old military barracks, dating from 1702, contains the Decorative Arts Collections, (basically, everything post 1700). Descend at the next stop, ‘Heuston’ for IMMA, Ireland's National Museum of Modern Art, housed in the old Kilmainham Hospital, built in the1660’s. It pre-dates its more famous sibling, the Chelsea Hospital, in London by several years. Not to be missed is the Old Jameson Distillery, in Smithfield. Jameson was distilled here until 1971, when three historic distilleries amalgamated, and centralized distilling in Midleton, Co. Cork. The Museum is very well presented; one is guided around the distilling floor, among the huge old pot stills before retiring to the Bar to sample the goods. Nearby is one of the oldest churches in Dublin, St.Michan’s, on Church Street, dating from the mid-11thC. There are several mummified bodies in the basement, thought to be Crusaders. When I was a child, one was allowed to shake their hands….. SOUTHSIDE In the south city centre, the RESTAURANT HUB is in the pedestrian streets to either side of Grafton Street, and in Temple Bar. Particular favourites of mine include: * The Pig's Ear, Nassau Street * Nede, Temple Bar Square * Eden Bar and Grill, South William Street * The Green Hen, Wicklow Street * Fallon and Byrne, Exchequer Street, basement wine-bar, full service restaurant first- floor, and coffee bar within the food-hall on the ground floor. * Fade Street Social, Fade Street, tapas bar and full-service restaurant. * The Rustic Stone, Exchequer Street, upmarket, sophisticated and healthy ‘fast food’. * Cornucopia, Wicklow Street- vegetarian café day, full service by evening. * The Port House, South William Street, wine bar and tapas. * Stanley's, St. Andrew Street, off Wicklow Street- wine bar and full service * Pinxto, Crowe Street, Temple Bar, as above, same management. * Cleaver East, Clarence Hotel - chef Oliver Dunne had a Michelin star in the parent restaurant, Bon Appetit, Malahide village, until he decided to hand it back and get a life Southside city-centre TRADITIONAL PUBS we like are: * Mulligan's, Poolbeg Street * Neary's, Chatham Street * Grogan’s, South William Street * International Bar, Wicklow Street * O'Neill's, Suffolk Street * The Dawson Lounge, Dawson Street * The Stag's Head, Connaught Court * The Long Hall, South Great Georges Street * Doheny and Nesbitt’s, Merrion Row * Kehoe’s, South Anne Street * The Duke, Duke Street Fronting the river, TEMPLE BAR, with its vibrant mix of independent shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs, markets and cultural institutions occupies an area three blocks deep and ten blocks long. At the western end, look out for the two branches of the Queen of Tarts- a wonderful tea shop that offers really good home baking and teas and coffees, all served on mismatched antique china (Lord Edward Street and Cow's Lane). Piglet Wine Bar, on the same pedestrian street had a lovely wine selection and great tapas, at good prices. TEMPLE BAR FARMERS MARKET, is held every Saturday in Meeting House Square, 9-4.30, now has a smart new tensile roof for wet days, and is a good place to rub shoulders with the locals, whilst sampling local food culture. Don’t miss the Oyster Stall, , or David Llewyllan’s fantastic ‘Double L’ local cider- 100% apple (not even water), and the two local cheese stalls, among others. Don’t’ forget to check out the overflow stalls on Curved Street, where Rossa Crowe’s fantastic bread is on offer- Rossa took himself off to France for two years to train, and now produces slow fermented breads, made with the very best organic flours. SOUTHSIDE CULTURAL ATTRACTIONS TRINITY COLLEGE is a good orientation point; from here it is easy to find the mediaeval core, the cultural/political hub of the country around Kildare Street, and the Grafton Street fashion hub. The campus occupies a 40-acre (16ha.) site, and is over 400 years old, though what one sees today are mainly beautiful eighteenth-century buildings. It is worth a wander around, after a visit to spectacular Long Library, to see the Book of Kells and other illustrated Celtic manuscripts. From Front Gate, look south to Grafton Street or west up College Green and Dame Street, which lead to the mediaeval core. At the brow of the hill you will find: * Dublin Castle (visit the State Apartments, the Chester Beatty Library and the lovely garden in front (which is actually the helicopter-landing pad for the Castle). * The City Hall with its 'Museum of the Capital' in the basement is worth a look- the Hall is free, and there is a nominal charge for the Museum. * Christchurch Cathedral * Dublinia-in the Christchurch Chapterhouse (Viking Exhibition). * Old Saint Audeon's Church, built almost into the city wall. * St Patrick's Cathedral, and historic park beside. * Marshe's Library-the oldest public library in these islands, 1701. * Francis Street- the Antiques Quarter. * Thomas Street/Meath Street, for a touch of 'Old Dublin'. * The Guinness Storehouse. * Royal Hospital, Kilmainham, (IMMA) Ireland's National Gallery of Modern Art, with its wonderful, recently restored formal garden. KILMINHAM GAOL is worth a visit, and tells the story of Irish Nationalism. It can be reached via the grounds of IMMA, passing Bully’s Acre, and old graveyard, where Brian Boru was reputedly rested on his way to his final burial place in Armagh. Alternatively, exit onto Nassau Street, with its cluster of high-quality shops showcasing the best of Irish crafts - fashion, knitwear, weaving, glassware, ceramics and contemporary jewellery - the Kilkenny Shop has a great cafe upstairs, with views over College Park. The Pig's Ear restaurant is one of my all-time favourites. Continue along the College Park railings till you reach Kildare Street, the cultural-institutional hub of the country. All of our national cultural institutions have free admission. Here you will find the National Library, and the National Museum, facing each other over the forecourt of Leinster House, home to the Oireachtas, our National Parliament. The National Library has a lovely exhibit on the poet, W.B. Yeats, and the Treasury, in the National Museum houses both the Bronze Age and Early Christian collections. On the opposite side of the block, on Merrion Street/Merrion Square, you will find the National Gallery, and the Natural History Museum (known to Dubliner's of my father's generation, as 'The Dead Zoo’. This is a very refreshing look to the past, with absolutely no interpretation, and nothing, not even a postcard, to buy). The National Gallery is almost through a four-year renovation programme; in the meantime, the Millennium Wing, on Clare Street, has a ‘highlights of’ exhibition, and the Café and Gift Shop are also accessed via the Clare Street Entrance. GETTING AROUND Two operators offer Hop-On/Hop-Off tours: (URL HIDDEN) (URL HIDDEN) They both offer a 2-day ticket, and cost roughly the same price - check them out online before you make up your mind. One can buy an integrated LEAP card in most newsagents, at train stations, and in the Dublin Bus Head Office at 42 O’Connell Street (on the west side of the street, just north of the Spire). This can be used on the LUAS, DART, some suburban mainline trains, and on Dublin Bus routes. There is also a 3-day tourist pass, the Freedom Ticket, which provides good value. €28 will give you 72 hours transport, starting at the Airport; Airlink from the airport, the Hop-On-Hop –Off tourist bus and all local bus routes. Web: (URL HIDDEN) •The DART, the local electric commuter train, runs north/south along the coast. The north-side city centre station is Connolly, on Amiens Street, facing Talbot Street, but I usually suggest people use Tara Street, as Connolly is also a mainline station, and is very big, and a bit confusing. Tara is purely a commuter station, and is about the same distance. It is on George’s Quay, just south of the Custom House. The other south-side city centre station is Pearse, on Westland Row, at the south end of the Trinity campus. •The LUAS Red Line runs east-west through the north side of the city, as far east as the docks, and serves both Connolly and Heuston mainline stations. The nearest stop to Mountjoy Square is Abbey, on Middle Abbey Street, opposite the Abbey Theatre. The LUAS Green Line serves the south suburbs; Ranelagh, Dundrum, Leopardstown Racecourse, and on out to Cherrywood, on the county boundary with Wicklow. •Main cross-city bus routes run north-south through O’Connell Street. The No.7 terminates on Mountjoy Square North, and there is a ‘shopper’s fare’ of 50c, to Grafton Street- alight at Trinity. On the return journey it skirts the Trinity campus and comes along Pearse, to the east of the campus - catch it on Clare Street, at the Millennium wing of the National Gallery. •DUBLIN BIKES are free to use for the first half hour, and have a stand on Mountjoy Square West, but one needs to go to the Princes Street stand (to the right hand side of the General Post Office (GPO)), to purchase a short term card. It costs €2, and is only available to credit card holders. SHOPPING WITH A DIFFERENCE Those interested in the local fashion, art and design scene should look out for the following addresses (in no particular order): •Designist, South Great George's Street (stock chosen for good design) •Irish Design Store, Drury Street •Article, Powerscourt Townhouse Centre (housewares) •Irish Designer Store, Top floor Powerscourt Townhouse Centre •Cow's Lane Gallery, Temple Bar (artist’s collective) •The Jam Factory, Nicholas Street (artist’s collective) •Avoca, Suffolk Street •Kilkenny Shop, Nassau Street •Designyard, South Frederick Street (jewellery) •Louise Kennedy, couturier, Merrion Square, and Tipperary Crystal •Gallery Zozimus, Francis Street (art gallery and carefully chosen crafts) •Graphic Studio Gallery, Temple Bar (artist-printmaker’s gallery) •Malthouse Design Centre and Shop, Distillery Court, 537 North Circular •Magee's of Donegal, Wicklow Street, and, •Kevin and Howlin, Nassau Street have hand-woven tweeds covered. •Dubarry's, College Green produce wonderful, country-style outerwear, including the most perfect alternative to sweaty, waterproof Wellington boots… •Monaghan's, Hibernian Way, the House of Ireland on Nassau Street and the Sweater Shops on Wicklow Street and Nassau Street has the best selections of traditional knitwear. Monaghan's specialise in cashmere. •The Cloth Shop, St. William Street, for interesting designer fabric, including a good selection of Irish Linen, and Liberty of London INDEPENDENT BOOKSHOPS and MUSIC STORES Eason’s, O’Connell Street, is a Dublin institution for over 100 years. It encompasses a large stationery department, a branch of Tower Records on the top floor, academic books in the basement, a nice café and two floors of general books. It is a good place to browse books of Irish interest, and they have a really good Information Desk. Chapters, Parnell Street West is my ‘local’. John Gannon is one of the best booksellers in the business, and his staff are hand-picked enthusiastic bibliophiles, one and all. Stock is a mixture of the latest releases, and carefully chosen remaindered books. Their ordering service is superlative, and they ALWAYS know exactly what one is talking about, even with just the vaguest, half-remembered clues from a newspaper review. Very strong on contemporary fiction, natural history, non-fiction and books of Irish interest. Extensive second-hand section upstairs. The Secret Bookstore, Wicklow Street is another favourite. It’s tucked away down a passage, near the L’Occitane shop and often throws up gems among its large second-hand stock. An eclectic music store occupies the rear of the shop. Cathach Rare Books, Duke Street, specializes in Irish first editions, and have an interesting selection of Irish maps and prints. Stokes Books is another interesting antiquarian/secondhand shop, specializing in books of Irish interest. You’ll find it in Georges Street Arcade. Claddagh Records, Cecelia Street, Temple Bar, is primarily a music publisher, but they have a retail outlet in Temple Bar, which is the oldest independent music shop in Dublin, and specializes in traditional Irish music, with some interesting World Music additions. PLACES OF WORSHIP: Roman Catholic: Many Catholic churches have Mass on Saturday evening, in addition to morning Masses. •St. Francis Xavier Roman Catholic Church, Upper Gardiner Street. Gospel Mass, 7.30pm Sundays, September to mid June. •St. Mary's Metropolitan Church - the Pro-Cathedral, Marlborough. Sung Mass, 11am, Sundays, with the Palestrina Choir. •St. Joseph’s Church, Berkeley Road, Dublin 7. •St. Teresa’s Church, Clarendon Street Church, choir sings at 11 o’clock Mass, Sunday’s •St. Peter’s Church, Phibsborough, Dublin 7, has wonderful Harry Clarke ((PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)) stained glass windows. •Whitefriars Street Church, Aungier Street, church has relics of St. Valentine. 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 (URL HIDDEN) Daily services in Synagogue at 32a Rathfarnham Road, Public Transport: Buses: (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN).

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!
  • Lindo lugar para ficar, boa comunicação com o anfitrião. Recomendaria

    Victoria2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Uma jóia em uma das casas mais bonitas de uma das melhores praças da Geórgia em Dublin. O apartamento era excelente, exatamente como descrito. Nós não teríamos pensado isso possível, mas o real é ainda melhor do que o mostrado nas fotografias. Karin é realmente um super anfitrião. Nós não poderíamos ter pedido mais. Ela é realmente amigável, extremamente receptiva e suas comunicações são claras.

    Peter2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Este lugar é perfeição absoluta! É impressionante, aconchegante, limpo perto do centro e Karin é o anfitrião perfeito

    Katy2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • O local era impecável, muito confortavelmente decorado. Tantos extras. O loft não é alto, mas eu também não. Eu dormi como um cordeiro. Super útil em me deixar deixar minha bagagem para pegar um carro alugado. Excedeu as minhas expectativas.

    Barbi2019-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • Lugar esplêndido.

    Will2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Eu tive uma estadia maravilhosa no estúdio georgiano de Karin. Comunicação no forehand foi ótimo, com dicas úteis e explicações. Acolhedor foi calorosa e Karin tomou o tempo, foi muito simpática. Havia um monte de presentes extras na geladeira e eu me senti tão bem-vinda. Na partida, meu vôo foi horas após o check-out: não há problema, Karin me deixou colocar minha bagagem no corredor, para que eu pudesse ir signtseeing (eu fui para Howth bonita). Muito recomendar !!!

    Monique2019-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • O lugar era ótimo. Todo o espaço que precisávamos, cafeteira e adaptadores para ajudar a manter nossos componentes eletrônicos carregados. Está em uma rua movimentada, por isso há ruído do tráfego após uma determinada hora. Ainda assim, encontrou tudo para ser melhor que o esperado.

    Mark2019-06-19T00:00:00Z
  • Eu selecionei a opção "melhor do que esperávamos" ao revisar o apartamento de Karin. No entanto, sinto que dá a impressão de que não esperávamos muito do apartamento quando, na realidade, estávamos à espera de um elevado padrão, dadas as críticas positivas e a Karin conseguiu ultrapassar estas elevadas expectativas, para o nosso deleite! Nós muito apreciamos o fornecimento de sumo de fruta e ovos etc. foi uma adição tão pensativo e trouxe relaxamento imediato após uma manhã movimentada de viagem (e encheu nossas barrigas famintas). Karin mesmo desde alguns toalete que foi outro adorável toque. Karin foi incrivelmente flexível com nossos planos de viagem e foi feliz para guardar nossas malas para nós ambos antes do check-in e após o check-out tempo que significava que poderíamos ver realmente mais de Dublin. Teríamos muito prazer em ficar com Karin novamente, se a oportunidade surgir, eu não posso elogiar muito Karin.

    Dublin, Irlanda

    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!
  • Dardo é um super anfitrião.

  • Lindo estúdio elegante, com uma excelente vista para o Liffey

    Peter2020-03-24T00:00:00Z
  • O lugar de Dardo é fantástico! Grandes janelas com vista para o rio Liffey e a ponte Ha'penny. Está na localização central perfeita, a uma curta caminhada de tudo o que você quer fazer em Dublin. Há muita vida noturna no Temple Bar e, se você for do tipo que vai dormir cedo, traga alguns protetores de ouvido.

  • O loft limpo e elegante de Dardo foi o local perfeito para nos basearmos em Dublin para nossas aventuras na cidade e perto de pontos de ônibus para nossas incríveis viagens de um dia. Você está realmente bem no coração do centro da cidade. Dito isto, você recebe barulho da cidade, especialmente às sextas e sábados, por isso, se isso o incomoda, os protetores de ouvido funcionaram muito bem! Havia muitos bares, restaurantes, lojas e outros serviços por perto. Dardo foi um ótimo anfitrião e foi muito receptivo às nossas perguntas e foi rápido com a nossa chave pegar. Não poderia pedir um anfitrião melhor e nós apreciamos suas recomendações! Mais uma vez obrigado, Dardo, por nos permitir usar seu espaço! Já queremos planejar uma viagem de volta!

    Kelli2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Dardo se comunicou muito bem e foi realmente acolhedor conosco. Aterrissamos em Dublin bem cedo e pudemos deixar nossas malas imediatamente, o que nos deu tempo para explorar. O apartamento está em uma localização perfeita e é muito limpo e arrumado. Nós nos sentimos realmente seguros, assim como o acesso e a segurança do prédio eram muito bons. O apartamento era muito espaçoso e nos sentimos muito confortáveis lá.

    Simon2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Lugar muito agradável, localização incrível!

  • Local incrível!

    Gareth2020-05-04T00:00:00Z
  • O local estava muito bem equipado. Ele ainda vem equipado com um berço, cadeira alta, lavadora, secadora e lava-louças. Eu amo a cozinha, pois você pode encontrar o equipamento necessário para fazer uma refeição simples. A localização era muito boa. Foi apenas 15 minutos a pé da área comercial. Dentro de apenas 3 minutos a pé, você pode encontrar alguns bons restaurantes e uma loja de conveniência. O local é limpo e confortável. Definitivamente ficarei aqui novamente se formos a Dublin novamente.

  • Apartamento moderno e animado!, Na localização perfeita! Perfeito para os poucos dias que ficamos! Fácil acesso e Liam foi um ótimo anfitrião!

    Ross2019-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • O apartamento parece um lar, é aconchegante e tem tudo o que precisamos para a nossa estadia. Super perto de tudo. Jameson é basicamente no seu quintal (2-3 minutos a pé, se isso). Cafeterias à sua porta. Você pode andar por toda parte e estar lá em 15 minutos! Liam foi extremamente responsivo, o check-in foi fácil e ele fornece dicas locais incríveis. Uma estadia incrível!

    Margaret2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • O local de Liam está em uma ótima localização. Tudo em Dublin era passável de pedestres e há um café incrível no prédio ao lado do qual íamos todos os dias para o café da manhã (Third Space - altamente recomendado!) Há também um local de café muito bom do outro lado da rua, para que você tenha tudo o que precisa nas proximidades . Liam era fácil de se comunicar e nos ajudou a encontrar um lugar para despachar nossas malas antes que pudéssemos fazer o check-in em seu lugar. Há algumas obras em andamento do outro lado da rua, que começam bem cedo pela manhã nos dias da semana, mas pouco pode ser feito sobre isso. Apenas nos ajudou a sair da cama e seguir em frente porque há muito o que fazer e ver!

A casa era linda, a localização é perfeita, eles gostaram da solidão, assim como da bela praia.

    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!

  • Nós amamos, amamos, amei a nossa estadia aqui. Tão tranquilo e aconchegante nesta casa de campo, mesmo que o tempo esteja ruim, você não se importa de estar sentado com uma vista deslumbrante e um livro perto da lareira. Ótimo lugar para se desconectar do mundo um pouco. Não posso recomendar o suficiente!

    Isabelle2020-03-12T00:00:00Z

A parada de ônibus fica muito perto e eu realmente gostei de ficar um pouco fora da agitação da cidade. Eu só queria ter ficado mais tempo! Eu recomendo!

    Adél2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Este pequeno local foi ótimo. Foi um pouco difícil de encontrar, porque as placas de rua na Irlanda não são tão claras e nosso GPS ainda não estava funcionando muito bem, mas, depois de nos orientarmos, ficou fácil. Fidelma criou um pequeno oásis em seu quintal. Nós apreciamos uma estadia tranquila e agradável, a uma curta caminhada de um supermercado com serviço completo para comprar o que você precisa para preparar algumas refeições simples. Ela tomou café, chá e outras coisas básicas na cozinha desta casinha. Nós pegamos um cartão de salto para o ônibus no shopping próximo para pegar o ônibus número 9 até a cidade todos os dias, economizando um pouco nossa tarifa de ônibus - US $ 2,50 por US $ 3 em cada sentido. A parada do busto estava literalmente ao virar da esquina. O check-in foi fácil, ela esteve em contato conosco o tempo todo, a cama era confortável e o local era bonito e limpo. Mande-me uma mensagem se tiver alguma pergunta.

    This property is an ideal getaway as its location offers all the benefits of country, coastal(300 meters to beach) living and is a short distance (1.5km) from the shops and restaurants of Killybegs.
    The scenery is breathtaking. With private access to 3 beach coves that open onto Fintragh beach (blue flag). Untouched wildlife including birds of prey, otters, coastal birds, seals, dolphins and if you are very patient you might catch a glimpse of a puffin! In addition to its natural edge it has been at the very hub of historical events with neighbouring fields accommodating ring forts, neolithic tombs, waters sailed on by vessels that participated in the Spanish armada and on the beach at the foot of our land (near cove 2) a B-17 flying fortress crashed and submerged in the sands during 1944 (all survived). Or just simply fish mackerel, crab and lobster from the headlands.
    Local Pier , Kayaking, Cycling, Mountains, Fishing, Walking, Beaches, Surfing, Bird Watching and much much more.

  • A cabine de Barrys foi incrível. Estávamos lá no meio da tempestade brendan e, quando chegamos, o fogão estava aceso e o lago ao fundo era pitoresco. Melhor Airbnb em que eu já fiquei. Recomendo se estiver visitando a área. Nós voltaremos. Obrigado por tudo.

    Chris2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Tivemos um tempo fabuloso aqui, uma localização incrível. Bela fuga, se você quer relaxar, Barry é um anfitrião brilhante. Altamente recomendado.

    Peter2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • Eu amei o lugar de Barry novamente e eu definitivamente voltaria! obrigado

    Jack2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Um refúgio na natureza. Eu definitivamente voltarei. A vista da garagem de barcos é incrível. Passei as manhãs vendo o sol nascer, embrulhado em um cobertor quente, e bebendo café fumegante no convés. O único som era o canto dos pássaros e o suave farfalhar da brisa. O lugar de Barry é uma jóia tranquila, aninhada nos trilhos mais conhecidos. As instalações são excelentes e a hospitalidade excelente. Barry e sua mãe, Kay, foram calorosos e muito acolhedores. Obrigado por tudo!

    Lisa2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Não há nada que eu possa culpar sobre este lugar, ficamos em NYE e foi absolutamente perfeito! O fogo tornou a cabine agradável e aconchegante, apesar de estar muito frio lá fora, e Barry voltou com mais madeira após a primeira noite, o que foi muito atencioso. Ideal para uma pausa tranquila, longe de toda a loucura! Nós definitivamente voltaremos.

    Tara2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Barry foi um excelente anfitrião e tão acolhedor. Ficamos na cabana no Natal e era tão aconchegante, com a lareira acesa e belas vistas sobre o lago. Nossa parte favorita foi de manhã, quando você viu o sol nascer sobre o lago. Foi de tirar o fôlego. Obrigado por uma estadia incrível Barry!

    Hannah2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Lugar incrível para ficar! Nós amamos cada minuto de nossa estadia e gostaria de ter reservado por mais tempo. Se você gosta de caminhar, havia um loop de 5 km que você pode fazer. Vimos o nascer do sol mais incrível em nossa primeira manhã lá. Um pub e uma loja local não estão muito longe, se você gosta disso. Recomendaria altamente!

    Frank2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • A cabana de Barry foi uma fuga dos sonhos Ele foi um ótimo anfitrião. A tranquilidade da água atrás do fogão tostado. Foram dois dias e noites de felicidade. Não poderia recomendar mais para uma escapada relaxante. Barry e sua mãe estão sempre mais do que felizes em acomodar

  • Adoramos nosso fim de semana na casa de Gerry. Nós nos sentimos muito bem-vindos e os extras que aparecem no apartamento como bebidas, comida e velas fazem com que pareça tão caseiro. A localização é perfeita para explorar Cork e perto do aeroporto. É altamente recomendável ficar aqui é confortável, limpo e aconchegante. Obrigado por nos receber, com certeza retornaremos um dia.

  • Gerry deu as boas-vindas à nossa linda casa no fim de semana. A casa era um refúgio acolhedor, perfeitamente posicionado nos arredores da cidade.

    Stone walled self catering cottage, secluded, great views, excellent walks, close to Arklow and Wicklow towns. An hour from Dublin, Queen size bed and double sleeper couch,separate bathroom, kitchen/living room.Remote location, wifi available.
    Spacious, well equipped, authentic old stone cottage, ( circa 1640's). Two levels. Outside deck/patio area. Separate bedroom and bathroom area. Log stove.
    The location is remote, no street lights or passing traffic... The quietness at night is unique. The rising sun in the east over the Irish sea is clearly visible from the deck area. The stars at night are magnificent in the clear winter skies. We love the solitude and feeling of space the location provides.
  • Casa linda com vistas deslumbrantes. Deliciosos biscoitos frescos e ovos de pato quando chegamos. Não posso recomendar o suficiente

    David2018-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • Cottage bonito com cargas de caráter. Muito confortável. Muito quieto. Ovelhas fora da janela. Sanchia nos cumprimentou na chegada e nos mostrou ao redor. Bolinhos frescos na mesa. Nós com certeza gostaria de voltar se desta forma novamente. Dianne e Lindsay. Sul da Austrália.

    Dianne2018-11-09T00:00:00Z
  • HOLLY COTTAGE PAZ DE ESPÍRITO Sanchia emana uma energia e um amor que poucos fazem, sua hospitalidade é excelente. A casa é calorosa e acolhedora e está equipada com tudo o que pode ser necessário, muito prático e muito limpo, a atenção ao datail é feita com amor. Meu marido e eu lhe agradecemos por criar este cantinho do paraíso, e nós o inventamos com todo nosso coração

    Francesca2018-11-06T00:00:00Z
  • Esta casa é tão grande! gostaria que tivéssemos mais tempo. Eu poderia ter passado dias aqui e aproveitado cada minuto disso. a cama era confortável, e Sanchia não poderia ter sido mais complacente. recomendaria isso sem dúvida

    Stacy2018-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • O chalé de Sanchia era um dos meus lugares favoritos da minha viagem à Irlanda. A casa era exatamente o que eu precisava na minha viagem - e eu teria reservado uma segunda noite se ela não tivesse novos visitantes próximos. Havia vento & chuva e eu fiquei morno e relaxado com um grande fogo que queima e assistiu vários filmes do local de DVD no local. A localização é um pouco isolado (embora perfeito), por isso é melhor chegar durante o dia e trazer seus mantimentos ou suprimentos para que você não tenha que sair novamente. Cal inferior: este Airbnb foi o destaque da minha viagem e eu não tenho nada, mas o carinho de memórias.

    Brianne2018-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • O fogão a lenha nos manteve quentinho em uma noite fria. Encontramos tudo o que precisávamos para fazer um agradável jantar e café da manhã no chalé. Acordar com uma vista maravilhosa cercada por animais de fazenda felizes foi delicioso. Sanchia e seu chalé são igualmente incríveis!

    Amory2018-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • Linda casa de pedra antiga renovada. Tão aconchegante. Aughrim apenas a 10 minutos de distância. Muitas caminhadas por perto. Não há problema em encontrar com eircode no Google Maps.

  • Este é um lugar incrível para ficar! A casa é adorável, e extremamente limpo e bem conservado! É muito perto dos cais de Howth e não muito longe de Dublin. Muito fácil de se locomover para restaurantes, locais turísticos, etc. Toni é um anfitrião muito gentil e prestativo! Melhor lugar para ficar, na minha opinião!

    Josh2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • Não há nada que você perca. Leite, geléia maravilhosa, pão caseiro e suco estão esperando por você. Você desfrutará de uma vista espetacular. Todas as atrações de Dublin podem ser facilmente alcançadas de ônibus ou trens DART locais.

    Caroline2019-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • Lugar incrível para ficar. Começando com uma verdadeira recepção irlandesa por Toni e seu marido Leonard. Localização é perfeita. Mesmo na praia e a 10 minutos a pé da vila de Howth e de todos os seus restaurantes. A cabine é impecavelmente limpa e muito bem equipada. A vista da área do salão é incrível. Cama muito confortável. A geladeira estava abastecida com mais do que o essencial e o pão e geléia caseiros de Toni. Mais uma vez obrigado por uma estadia maravilhosa. Mal podemos esperar para voltar.

    Suzanne And John2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Dizer que ficar na cabana de Toni e Leonard era um prazer seria um eufemismo. A bela paisagem era inspiradora, e a cabine em si era perfeita para meu marido e eu. Até pedimos comida para nossa última noite, para que pudéssemos aproveitar a cabine! Toni fez um delicioso pão marrom, que nós apreciamos com um café da Nespresso. A cama e o sofá são confortáveis e fáceis de relaxar. A localização é perfeita; uma viagem rápida e fácil de trem para Dublin e muito perto da vivacidade e da beleza de Howth. Toni e Leonard foram anfitriões maravilhosos; eles nos deram muitas dicas e sugestões para a nossa primeira estadia na Irlanda e foram imensamente gentis e acolhedores. Já estamos planejando uma viagem de volta nos próximos anos! Mais uma vez obrigado, Toni e Leonard pela incrível estadia!

    Mallory2019-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • A cabine de Toni é um lugar especial! É um local encantador à beira-mar para relaxar e curtir a cidade de Howth How

    Julie2019-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • A cabine é linda e extremamente aconchegante. Está a poucos passos da praia. Você acorda todos os dias com uma vista incrível! Estar lá foi uma experiência tão bonita. Toni também é um superhost real! Ela é muito gentil, super responsiva e sempre disponível para qualquer coisa. Ela nos forneceu um café da manhã adorável, com delicioso pão caseiro e geléia. Definitivamente, recomendo Toni e a cabine, mal posso esperar para voltar em breve :)

    Giada2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • Algumas pequenas imperfeições que estavam nas mãos de Toni: um corte de energia e terraplenagem sendo realizadas ao lado não ajudou, mas a vista do jardim é incrível e poder usar o portão privado direto para a praia é uma grande vantagem. Estávamos encontrando amigos para comemorar o aniversário de Phil Lynott e passávamos a maior parte do dia voltando bastante tarde da noite. Achei fácil estender o feriado quando percebemos que poderíamos fazer um show do Foo Fighters no RDS. O check-in foi fácil e Toni forneceu alguns itens de café da manhã para nos preparar durante a primeira manhã e ela fez algumas recomendações para restaurantes locais para comer e nos ajudou a descobrir os horários dos ônibus e a rota para Malahide. A cama era confortável, embora os travesseiros não fossem a nossa preferência, conseguimos dormir bem. Esperamos voltar como uma ótima alternativa para um hotel em Dublin durante os meses de verão e é um ótimo local para os fãs de Phil Lynott.

    Ann2019-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • Definitivamente recomendaria uma estadia nesta encantadora cabana à beira-mar. Grande anfitrião um foi muito tranquilo lá.

  • Casa bonita, limpa espumante e idílica. Cottage tem tudo que você precisa e Triona é uma casa maravilhosa. Tínhamos dois filhos pequenos conosco e tudo o que precisávamos era fornecido, a casa era muito adequada para crianças pequenas.

    Fina2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • A casa de campo de Triona é um refúgio mágico no interior da Irlanda e o melhor Airbnb em que já fiquei. Do fogão a lenha ao gatinho charmoso e vistas pitorescas - todos os dias eram memoráveis e mal podemos esperar para visitar novamente! Obrigado por fazer desta viagem uma viagem fantástica para nós!

    Annie2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • A localização da casa é impressionante e a casa em si é absolutamente impecável. É incrivelmente quente, aconchegante e muito tranquilo. Triona e Rory são excelentes anfitriões e estavam disponíveis a qualquer momento para qualquer consulta. Eu não poderia recomendá-los o suficiente.

    Odette2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Linda casa com um ambiente deslumbrante. Descemos para um fim de semana relaxante antes de voltar ao trabalho após as férias de Natal e foi muito mais do que antecipávamos. A casa em si é equipada com tudo, desde relva, wifi, cozinha a shampoo e secador de cabelo; nós precisávamos de nada. Chegamos tarde e Triona acendeu o fogo para nós na chegada, pois o tempo estava horrível. As vistas da casa são de tirar o fôlego. Subimos as colinas e as fotos não fazem justiça. Nós contemplamos não sair, nós amamos tanto. Já falamos sobre voltar. Triona foi uma excelente anfitriã e a comunicação foi de 110%. Muito obrigado por uma estadia tão agradável, mal podemos esperar para voltar

    Geoffrey2019-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • Teríamos adorado ficar mais tempo no castelo. Todo mundo estava muito atento a nós e realmente criou uma experiência. Foi em uma bela localização, leva 1 hora de carro de Galway, cidade, mas tão bonito e onírico. Havia champanhe e queijo, chá e descontos no jantar. O jantar foi super divertido e chique. Nós ainda temos uma aula de história antes do jantar na área que foi super envolvente. Tudo o que você quer fazer fica a uma caminhada ou passeio de carro. Muito divertido neste castelo. Lembre-se de que o custo é baseado por pessoa e é um pouco mais caro que em outros lugares. É uma experiência embora. Todo mundo foi incrível.

    Adam2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • Se for possível classificar um lugar com 6 estrelas em vez de 5, eu o faria por este. Donna foi além quando meus planos de viagem de repente se tornaram muito tumultuados (cortesia de COVID19). Ela realmente está interessada em pequenos detalhes que fizeram uma diferença substancial em minha viagem, e ela encontra um ótimo equilíbrio entre profissional e agradável. Não apenas eu recomendaria o lugar dela para um novo viajante na Irlanda, mas também estava de olho em uma possível visita repetida no próximo ano!

    Sherard2020-03-19T00:00:00Z

    Cahercastle has been standing since the late 1400s One needs to be somewhat crazy to be owned by a castle , itsowned me now for 20 years, anyway it is our home its not perfect, so don't expect perfection ,we do have cobwebs and a little dust (so asthma sufferers take note)We endeavour to make your stay as comfortable as possible Please note when making a request to stay please take time to write an introductory message or have an informative profile We look forward to welcoming you Peter / Eva
    A beautiful, original medieval castle experience can be yours for a weekend, a week, or even longer. You'll be staying in the master bedroom, the highest room in the castle. This castle has been restored to its original state by using traditional materials, and also by using cutting edge technology. We used traditional local stone, limestone, as well as oak beams, to make the castle as traditional as possible, but it also has modern conveniences, such as solar water heating. The castle was built sometime in the 1400's but was refurbished in the last decade. It is comprised of a master bedroom upstairs, with access to the turret, a living room and dining room, two guest bedrooms, and some storage rooms. I'm Peter, your host, and I spent the last ten years refining and refurbishing the castle - the pictures can attest to how well that has worked out. Two room in the castle are still under construction - the storage room downstairs. Remember, this is a castle that is over 600 years old. That means it's not perfect. Castles were never designed with bathrooms and showers, so we've improvised. You'll have to come downstairs to have a bath which is located in the living room - this is the quirkiest part of the castle. You have full private access to the living room,kitchen , bath and your master bedroom Castles are built with solid stone, so there is a huge fireplace with a cooker to keep the place warm and of course underfloor heating complements of our pet Dragon that lives in the dungeon The castle has lots of quirks, its a great and fun place to stay the night. Galway City is a 25 minute drive from the castle which is a very beautiful city. The castle is around a 20 minute drive from Galway Airport, a 45 minute drive from Shannon Airport and Dublin is two hours away. What to expect: lots of winding staircases, a castle that has been lovingly restored, but there are some cobwebs, and it gives you the real Irish castle experience. It's not pristine, its not perfect, but it's a real castle. There are lots of sheep and cows in the nearby fields - but lots of peace and quiet. This is a very unique place to stay. There's nothing like it around, where you can say that you stayed in an actual castle. It's not a tourist attraction (like Blarney Castle) and it's not pristine like a hotel, but you'll have a great time visiting. You'll need a car. The castle is about two miles from the nearest public transport. (Craughwell has both train and buses running regular schedules) I can help with anything like lighting a fire or answering any of your questions. P.S. as this is our home we like to get an idea of who's coming to stay so please write a message of introduction or have a written profile as we do sometimes decline if we just see a one liner and nothing on a profile so to avoid disappointment fill out your profile
    Countryside, farms, cows ,sheep , 3 acre garden, stream , river , trees, And you might see the odd fox, heron, pheasant, rabbit and of course the friendly farmers and neighbours cctv in operation outside the castle
  • Que maneira mágica de começar nossa estadia na Irlanda! Parecia literalmente que estávamos de volta à era medieval, mas com toques modernos e peculiares! Peter e Eva são tão bons !!!!! E nós amamos o seu doce gatinho! Queremos voltar e ficar mais tempo novamente!

    Bree2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Foi ainda melhor do que esperávamos. Não podíamos parar de prestar atenção em toda a arquitetura e detalhes arrumados. Peter e Eva foram muito gentis e acolhedores. Este lugar foi definitivamente o destaque de nossa viagem à Irlanda.

    Alicia2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Não me lembro exatamente de onde me deparei com este castelo ABnB, mas estou tão feliz por ter conseguido !! Reservamos com alguns meses de antecedência para garantir que não perderíamos. A nossa estadia aqui não foi apenas uma das melhores partes do nosso tempo em Galway, mas um destaque em todas as nossas férias na Irlanda. Nós tivemos tudo o que precisamos. Os quartos e camas limpos e confortáveis. Apesar de estar cercado por pedras, você vai se sentir quente e aconchegante aqui. Peter foi um anfitrião incrível e pronto em todas as comunicações. Ele também passou a ser um prazer falar com ele.

    Jessica2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Para experimentar a simpatia e a herança da Irlanda, você deve ficar aqui no Castelo de Pete. Que experiência incrível e Pete é um anfitrião maravilhoso.

    Tabitha2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Tudo o que posso dizer é que isso é imperdível, que experiência e prazer incrível, basta ir !! Você não vai se arrepender. Sobre Pete, sua paixão e dedicação a este castelo é algo que simplesmente não consigo descrever. É realmente humilhante. Pete é muito interessante e você pode ouvir suas histórias sobre seu amor pelo castelo. O trabalho que ele colocou nele é fenomenal. Sobre o castelo: De uma ruína, ele transformou-o em algo tão mágico, tão intrigante, peculiar e fascinante. Eu e minha filha tivemos apenas uma noite lá, o que não foi suficiente para nós, tente fazer 2 pelo menos, se puder. Só posso classificá-lo como provavelmente o lugar mais interessante que já fiquei. Todos os detalhes e considerações o deixarão encantado. Confie em mim e vá reservar agora. Obrigado Pete & Eva pela magia!

    Donna2020-03-03T00:00:00Z

  • Um ótimo lugar para ficar, eu recomendaria definitivamente o lugar de Keith.

  • 5 estrelas ☆☆☆☆☆ O alojamento é um local muito aconchegante para se visitar durante um fim de semana. Smart TV, todas as comodidades, cama muito confortável e ambiente relaxante. Pena que nunca chegamos a usar a banheira de hidromassagem devido ao clima frio, mas definitivamente voltaremos no verão.

    Laura2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • Lugar incrível, check-in simples e apenas tem uma atmosfera brilhante! Ore por céus azuis de manhã e você acordará com as mais incríveis vistas do céu !!! Gostaria de recomendar a ninguém!

    This hexagon hut is situated on its own on land that is half orchard half woodland, 5 Km from Westport. It gives a nice view over the natural environment with wild life and low key farming. A few goats and a few hens roam in the adjoining field.
    The hexagon shaped cabin has decking on both sides to enjoy morning sun as well as evening sun. On the morning sun side, where the door is, the decking leads to the little bathroom building. The cuckoo is around from the end of April until the end of May. The Owenwee river with salmon and trout runs on about 200 Meter distance. Westport town is on 5 Km distance. Clew bay 2 Km . Nearest beach 7 Km. There is a nice and safe place to park the car at the bottom of the path leading to the cabin. Guests are free to roam the one third of an acre around the hut. There are beautiful walks around without having to use the car. One of the few native woods left is only 1,5 Km away. From 1 April till 1 October I don't take bookings for less than 3 nights Just for help if needed The neighbourhood of this place is extremely friendly and there is a big sense of community here. Public transport, busses and trains, is available in Westport. There is a safe opportunity to cycle to town. Westport town has great entertainment possibilities. Lots of traditional music, also good blue grass and jazz. Many coffee shops and restaurants and indeed a great choice of very interesting and unique shops.
    The neighbourhood of this place is extremely friendly and there is a big sense of community here.
  • Nós nos divertimos muito nesta casinha! Nós passado 3 noites, foi super nice, tranqüila e relaxante. Eu recomendo esse lugar!

    Thibaud2019-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • Privacidade e relaxamento nesta pequena residência peculiar. Grande hospitalidade de Irma que nos deu dicas sobre onde visitar. Nós apreciamos completamente a nossa estadia e gostaria de recomendar para aqueles que querem um retiro rural invulgar.

    Janis2019-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • Ótima estadia no Irma! Nosso avião estava muito atrasado e chegamos muito tarde, mas Irma estava esperando por nós com toda a sua gentileza! o alojamento é em um belo cenário e é consistente com a sua descrição. Eu recomendo!

    Elodie2019-06-27T00:00:00Z
  • Paraíso! Para real embora. Nós ficamos algumas noites durante a nossa lua de mel. Irma nos tratou muito bem. Ela nos deixou um cartão pensativo, bem como leite, pão caseiro, manteiga e ovos. O hexágono era um lugar incrível para ficar.

    Jessica2019-06-23T00:00:00Z
  • Irma foi um anfitrião maravilhoso. Ela tinha pão fresco, ovos, café e leite para nós quando chegamos. O local é encantador e bem pensado. Nós amamos estar escondido, rodeado pela natureza. Irma pensa em pequenos detalhes como um pequeno buquê de flores e bengalas para nossa caminhada até Crough Patrick. Adorável, ecclectic lugar para ficar. Altamente recomendado! Espero voltar!

    Kort2019-06-18T00:00:00Z
  • O lugar de Irma é verdadeiramente único, localizado em um belo cenário no campo ainda a menos de 10 minutos da cidade de Westport. Tivemos uma recepção calorosamente maravilhosa e uma excelente comunicação do início ao fim. Irma é adorável e um ótimo host. A casa tem tudo que você precisa para uma pequena pausa, uma cama super confortável e uma vista incrível. Ficamos tristes em sair e já estamos planejando nossa próxima visita.

    Phil2019-05-27T00:00:00Z

    Rebecca2019-05-19T00:00:00Z
  • A cabine de Irma era de longe a mais peculiar das BBs em que ficamos durante uma visita de um mês na Irlanda. Um refúgio do país tranquilo, mas perto o suficiente para a cidade e locais circundantes. Desejo que eu poderia dar 10 estrelas !! Nós voltaremos...

    Recently awarded 'Most Unique Listing in Ireland' by Airbnb! This cabin is nestled in a tranquil woodland setting, with uninterrupted panoramic views over Lough Derg all the way to the Sliabh Aughty hills in Galway. The cabin is far away from busy roads and street lights and is a haven of birdsong, starry nights and spectacular sunsets with "one of the best views we have ever woken up to". Fully equipped with kitchen, bathroom and lofted bedroom; and is suitable for all seasons.
    You have a seperate entrance and car parking facility. We live adjacent to the cabin but it is not overlooked. The cabin was designed and built by Stephen (a master carpenter) who was inspired by the 'Tiny Homes Movement' which advocates living simply on a smaller scale. It is built from locally sourced timber, is fully insulated and has low voltage led lighting; all designed to increase sustainability and minimise the environmental impact. Although small in scale, the cabin contains everything you could need for a perfect holiday experience.
    This area is far from the busy tourist trails and is a well-kept secret haven of natural beauty. However, our central location means you are only an hour from the 'Wild Atlantic Way' and less than two hours from Dublin.
  • Absolutamente amei a experiência Tiny House! Muito confortável e tudo o que você precisa em um belo local. Stephen e Aine foram extremamente hospitaleiros e amigáveis. Estava extremamente frio lá fora, mas a Tiny House estava quentinha! Espero ficar novamente um dia.

    Sonja2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • Tivemos uma estadia maravilhosa nesta bela cabana, Stephen e Aine são anfitriões maravilhosos que eu não poderia culpá-los nem um pouco! Ótimo lugar para ir se você estiver em busca de um tempo tranquilo com incríveis vistas panorâmicas do Lago Derg. Altamente recomendado!

    Kelly2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Alojamento totalmente recomendado, toda a atenção aos detalhes em um ambiente maravilhoso. Natureza, paz e uma cabana dos sonhos. Estaremos de volta, obrigado Stephen!

    Miriam2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • Queríamos ter uma experiência em passar uma pequena casa. Nós realmente amamos o nosso tempo na pequena casa. A localização é excelente, com uma vista incrível do lago. Casa é muito aconchegante. Tomar café da manhã, trabalhar ou ler um livro com essa visão foi maravilhoso. Muito bom para relaxar por alguns dias. O único detalhe é que a internet nunca funcionou. Portanto, se você precisa de internet para trabalhar ou algo assim, não é confiável. Mas há uma boa recepção por telefone. No geral, é um lugar maravilhoso. Altamente recomendado.

    Ramiro2019-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • Este lugar é excepcionalmente ótimo para realmente relaxar. É muito calmo e acolhedor e a casa tem todas as comodidades necessárias. A vista é apenas mágica. Eu amei como parecia tão minúsculo por fora e ainda tinha espaço mais do que suficiente para tudo por dentro. Stephen e Aine são anfitriões adoráveis e acolhedores. Super altamente recomendado :)

    Meike2019-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • Esta pequena cabana é uma jóia escondida aconchegante, tem tudo o que você precisa para passar alguns dias tranquilos. É uma curta distância de carro de Nenagh, por isso é muito acessível, mas assim que você chega, a cabine fica em uma posição perfeita e tranquila, com vistas para o lago e o pôr do sol que você não encontraria em nenhum outro lugar. Definitivamente voltarei novamente

    Rebecca2019-10-20T00:00:00Z

  • Ótima localização, fácil de encontrar e estacionamento direto no Mick's. Cama aconchegante e confortável, embora fotos possam ser atualizadas. Tivemos uma adorável estadia de duas noites e achamos a caminhada em Galway realmente simples. O processo de check-in / check-out foi super fácil e o apt foi um ótimo lugar para ficar para explorar Galway. O único problema é a torneira na área da cozinha é muito lenta! Caso contrário, tudo bem para uma estadia de duas noites.

    Lucy2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Grande valor e a uma curta distância da praça.

    Brett2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • O lugar de Mick era uma bela e compacta casa de campo elegante em Galway. O local foi convenientemente a uma curta distância de bares e restaurantes. Ele foi acomodando com as minhas preocupações com a tomada de café no apartamento. Meu marido e eu definitivamente recomendo o lugar de Mick se você estiver em Galway.

    Ashley2019-05-24T00:00:00Z
  • Ótimo lugar - fácil de caminhar até o centro da cidade e pontos de interesse. Realmente gostei do nosso tempo lá.

    Melissa2019-05-17T00:00:00Z

  • O lugar de Katy era o espaço perfeito para pousar. Limpo, acolhedor e caloroso e uma caminhada de 30 segundo para a praia do outro lado da estrada, que era muito bonito para uma boa caminhada rápida na costa. Katy foi adorável e rápido para responder às nossas necessidades. Ela teve ótimas sugestões sobre o que fazer na área também! Nós recebemos visitas de seu doce cão mais velho, Rosa, que nós amamos !! mas se você não é uma pessoa de cachorro, não se preocupe ... ela é muito inteligente e teria a dica;) e ela nunca teria entrado na cabana, mesmo quando a convidamos. Nós gostamos de amá-la todos os dias, então ela voltou para mais. Todos nós amamos nossa estadia aqui e planejar voltar no futuro!

    Jenn2019-05-07T00:00:00Z
  • O lugar de Katys foi exatamente como descrito! Nós amamos o lugar acolhedor e calorosa recepção, tanto quanto a área local de Rush. Katy foi muito útil e comunicação foi perfeita. Eu definitivamente recomendo este lugar para os meus amigos!

    Christina2019-05-05T00:00:00Z
  • Se eu pudesse dar a esta localização e Katy mais de 5 estrelas eu faria. A casa é maravilhoso ..... cerca de 20 passos do Oceano Irlandês, que era simplesmente bonito. A casa é apenas como retratado ... a cama tão "confortável" depois de um longo dia de falar um "passeio sobre". Sabendo que eu estaria cansado e com muita necessidade de café vindo dos estados ... tudo que eu precisava para aquela xícara de café quente ... estava só esperando por mim. "Obrigado" muito Katy. Todas as perguntas que fiz foram respondidas em tempo hábil e com informações úteis adicionais. Em suma Katy foi ótimo e muito útil. A cidade de Rush é ótima ..... todos muito simpáticos e realmente tudo o que você precisa. Um açougueiro maravilhoso da cidade (foi capaz de obter salsicha fresca de pequeno-almoço britânico). O pôr do sol e sol nasce são de tirar o fôlego. Apenas o que seria necessário para fugir e limpar a mente. Eu já estou planejando minha próxima viagem a Rush e a maravilhosa cabana de praia.

    Pamela2019-04-25T00:00:00Z
  • Katy foi um anfitrião maravilhoso e tinha tudo pronto para nós quando chegamos. A localização é pitoresca ea comida de café-da-manhã é um toque maravilhoso, usamos apenas sobre tudo isso durante a nossa estadia de três noites. Katy foi muito simpática e nos forneceu algumas dicas realmente úteis. Com certeza gostaria de ficar lá novamente!

    Matt2019-04-13T00:00:00Z
  • O lugar de Katy era muito encantador e nós sentíamos como casa do primeiro momento nós entramos na cabana. Quando chegamos, fomos muito bem recebidos por Rosa. Acabamos de ver Katy uma vez durante a semana em que estávamos em Rush, mas ela foi muito gentil e prestativa - em todos os aspectos: restaurantes, lojas, hotspots, ... Na casa de campo você pode encontrar informações suficientes sobre lugares próximos e distantes que Katy havia preparado. Todos em todos, tivemos uma estadia amável no lugar de Katy!

    Mai2019-04-07T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutamente incrível localização e ótimas paisagens. Katy é um excelente anfitrião e eu definitivamente voltarei.

    Folan’s Cottage is a beautiful architecturally designed holiday home that was rebuilt in 2010 from two ruined stone cottages. It is only a few meters from a wonderful quiet sandy beach, with views of the Twelve Bens and across the ocean to the Arann Islands. The setting is magical and remote with just rabbits, sheep and Connemara ponies as your neighbours.
    (The calendar that shows availability is correct and kept up to date. Please don't enquire for unavailable weeks. Use the CONTACT HOST option for general enquiries. We are unable confirm bookings for more than 12 months in advance and July and August are booked year to year with family and regulars) We only rent the house by the week, Saturday to Saturday. It is possible to take the house for less than 7 nights but the weekly rate still applies. In low season (Nov to Feb) we can be more flexible if the house is available a couple of months out. Accommodation Folan’s cottage sleeps 6/7 in 3 bedrooms. Kitchen Large kitchen with island counter, electric oven and hob, microwave oven, dishwasher, clothes washer/dryer, double sink, fridge and freezer, food processor and blender, dinner table for 8 people, French windows which fold back fully and open out onto south facing terrace with view of the ocean. Living Room Fireplace with stove, T.V., DVD player, bluetooth sound system for playing music from your smartphone Murvey Bedroom On ground floor with large double bed, fitted wardrobes, en suite bathroom with shower.

    The beauty of this area is just breathtaking. The house is right beside a beautiful beach which is almost always deserted because there is no road access. It is safe for swimming and ideal for sand castles and shrimping in local rock pools. There are numerous coastal and hill walks in the immediate area and we are close to the Twelve Bens mountains which have some of the best hiking terrain in the country.
  • Nós apreciamos completamente tudo sobre a nossa estadia. A arquitetura notável, a localização deslumbrante à beira-mar, a bela paisagem e o calor das nossas boas-vindas. Na chegada, fomos recebidos ao pôr do sol por três cavalos brancos que tornaram a experiência quase mágica. Esta foi a nossa melhor estadia na Irlanda - adoraríamos voltar.

    Richard2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Tivemos uma estadia maravilhosa no impressionante Folan's Cottage. A casa é uma jóia arquitetônica em um local mágico. É extremamente bem equipado e confortável. A comunicação de Simon foi excelente e todo o processo foi muito tranquilo.

    Naomi2019-06-29T00:00:00Z
  • A casa de Simon é o lugar mais bonito que já ficamos. A casa é impressionante, tão perfeitamente trabalhada e em um local mágico. Estávamos lá com uma criança pequena e ele ficou hipnotizado observando os cavalos e ovelhas pelas janelas, encontrando conchas na praia e ouvindo a chuva quando ela invadiu. A cidade de Roundstone é adorável e há muitos lugares bonitos e especiais para visitar nas proximidades. Este foi o destaque de nossa viagem à Irlanda e nós definitivamente voltaremos!

    Katie2019-04-27T00:00:00Z
  • Simon tem um lugar magnífico com tudo o que precisávamos para nossa primeira estadia na Irlanda. A praia é linda com vista para a montanha atrás da casa. Gostamos de assistir a manhã dos cavalos correndo pelo campo. A casa é remota, portanto, esteja preparado para dirigir para cidades vizinhas. Fizemos a caminhada sobre a montanha até Roundstone, que era linda, mas acabou sendo muito mais desafiadora e lamacenta devido a uma semana chuvosa. Gostaríamos muito de voltar no verão!

    Kelly2019-03-23T00:00:00Z
  • Ótima localização, elegante Cottage. Mesmo sendo inverno, tivemos uma estadia maravilhosa. Caminhadas em Roundstone, Clifden e Errisbeg eram emoção suficiente para nós, no resto do dia ficamos olhando o mar ... ou os pôneis ... ou o mar e os pôneis.

    Annett2019-02-16T00:00:00Z

    In the heart one of Ireland's least known and unspoiled peninsulas this architect designed cozy eco chalet is REALLY off beaten the track (open & close 2 gates, unsurfaced road) in a yard with stabled ponies, ducks chickens and geese. Yet stylish, clean, and warm (3 heaters!). NEW mattress! Books about Ireland and local art. Bathroom with hot shower, washing machine. Toaster, cold water sink and electric kettle. New convection oven/microwave/grill unit. Composting toilet serviced regularly.
    We are a genuine AirBnB - a private place opened out to those who share the AirBnB ethos and not available any other way. On the Wild Atlantic Way and the Beara Way, the chalet is located near the ruined Kilcatherine Church, built by monks said to be practicing for work on the Skellig Islands across the Bay and near the largest ogham stone in Ireland. Protected oak woodlands nestle by Ballycrovane Pier where local fisherman still harbour - and there are no jet skis. Visitors who have booked for only one night wish they had known how special the area is and allowed more time! [Do note, fellow cooks, that the cooking facilities are limited - new unit this summer replaces microwave with a unit that adds convection oven and grill as well, and there is a grill and toaster and electric kettle. ] And guests have asked us to say that we really are off the beaten track - finding us in the dark is not advised - and the unsurfaced road has two gates that need to be opened and closed. But they all say its worth it!
    Secluded strands and hidden local piers. Ruins, wild headlands and unspoiled commonage running for miles. The end of the world. Castletownbere - about 18 kilometers distant - is the nearest town with restaurants and famous pubs. The Village of Eyeries - 5 km - has shop and post office and cafe. You can look out on one of the most remote bays - Ballycrovane - and headlands - the Cod's Head - on Ireland's west coast. You will never forget the experience, and you may even decide to return - or to never leave...
  • Tony foi maravilhoso! Foi capaz de se reunir para se instalar. Lugar adorável.

    Laura2019-11-04T00:00:00Z

  • Obrigado por ser um ótimo anfitrião! Seu chalé ecológico era perfeito para uma noite tranquila, bebendo vinho e lendo livros. Nós também gostamos de explorar a área local e recomendaria o ponto Kilcatherine, independentemente do clima!

    Ioan2019-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • Ficamos na casa de Tony por duas noites. Procuramos um lugar aconchegante razoavelmente perto da natureza. Ficamos super surpresos quando chegamos ao chalé dele. O local está situado em uma localização incrível, não apenas há belas paisagens do lado de fora da porta da frente, também existem galinhas felizes, patos, pôneis e cães ao redor. À noite, você pode assistir estrelas enquanto se senta nas escadas da casa. Há também uma pequena vila bonita por perto. O próprio Tony é um cara adorável e muito hospitaleiro.

  • Este lugar é absolutamente deslumbrante. Depois de passar algum tempo aqui, você vai querer ficar aqui por mais tempo! É mais do que esperávamos!

  • Uau!! Nós amamos a nossa estadia no eco-chalé de Tony! É tão tranquilo e as vistas são incríveis! Um dos pores do sol mais bonitos de todos os tempos! Definitivamente, recomendo reservar um tempo para dirigir o Anel de Beara! Linda!

  • Estúdio perfeito formado para 2. As instalações de cozinha eram ótimas para pequenas refeições e lanches. O tempo estava frio e úmido durante a nossa estadia, mas éramos adoráveis e quentes por dentro. Localização foi ótima para nós. Não queríamos estar no centro movimentado. Nas proximidades, há um supermercado e algumas opções para levar e um serviço de ônibus que leva você ao centro de Dublin em aproximadamente 25 minutos. A melhor parte foi a hospitalidade de Claudia e Dany! Nós não poderíamos culpá-lo. Respostas rápidas e eles realmente nos fizeram sentir bem-vindos.

  • Claudia & Dany foram anfitriões brilhantes e nos fizeram sentir muito bem-vindos. O lugar é realmente muito bem feito e nos serviu perfeitamente por duas noites. Estava impecavelmente limpo e tudo estava como foi anunciado. Claudia também veio e nos pegou no aeroporto, o que foi uma grande ajuda e também foi muito rápido em responder a qualquer pergunta. Definitivamente recomendo!

    Alexander2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Claudia e Dany foram anfitriões amigáveis e nos ajudaram na nossa estadia. O apartamento era limpo e tinha tudo o que precisávamos.

    Kam2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Meu parceiro e eu realmente gostamos da estadia na casa de Claudia e Dany. O lugar era ainda melhor do que nas fotos. O local está bem conectado aos transportes públicos - leva cerca de 20 minutos para chegar ao centro da cidade de ônibus. Eu certamente recomendaria este lugar!

    Joline2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Tivemos um ótimo momento, o local é pequeno, mas muito limpo e acolhedor, tem todas as comodidades necessárias, lojas e mercados muito próximos na área, no geral foi muito bom e os anfitriões são muito simpáticos e amigáveis.

    Andrei2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • O alojamento era ótimo, era muito limpo e os anfitriões eram muito bons. Se você quer ir para Dublin, precisa passar um pouco de tempo no ônibus e caminhar ou trazer um carro. Estadia muito agradável

    Jessi2019-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • Estúdio muito limpo e amigável. Tudo estava perfeito. Nós até tivemos pequenos bolos e chocolate. Claudia muito gentil e atenta aos pedidos. Eu recomendo

    This beautiful 18th century converted barn, located opposite the owner’s home, within easy and quick access to Waterford and Kilkenny . Has a country style open-plan layout. It provides the perfect base to explore the sunny south east many famous sights and walking trails. Following a day's trekking in the Greenway which is just 6 miles away you can sit and enjoy the stunning views which the barn provides. At the end of the day you can relax beside the cosy stove and plan your next day's outing!
    The barn has high speed internet access. However please be aware that the mobile signal is poor inside the barn due to the thick stone walls.
    It's a quite cul de sac with just two houses .
  • Marie foi um anfitrião incrível! Meu marido e eu tivemos uma estadia encantadora, a cama era tão confortável também! Com certeza, ficaria lá novamente. Um lugar tão bonito!

  • Casa aconchegante linda em uma área tranquila. Ótima hospitalidade e super relaxante.

    Darren2019-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • O celeiro de 1779 era lindo. As provisões estavam além das nossas expectativas. E as acomodações foram excelentes. Lugar realmente divertido para fugir!

    A. Brad2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Marie é maravilhosa. Demos uma volta errada ao chegar lá e ela saiu para nos encontrar e nos guiou até o local. Este lugar é totalmente perfeito. Tudo o que você precisa para obter comodidades, incluindo todos os itens de café da manhã. Gostaria que tivéssemos mais de uma noite !!

    Donna2019-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • O celeiro de Marie era espetacular! Um espaço tão lindo e ela foi a anfitriã mais gentil! Ela fez um tour muito completo e até lavou a roupa. Eu recomendaria ficar com ela para ninguém!

    Stephanie2019-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • Facilmente um dos melhores lugares em que ficamos, anfitrião adorável e prestativo, excelente localização rural tranquila, mas ainda a apenas 15 em Waterford. As cargas de pequenos extras desde que Marie é um motivo para ela estar um pouco acima do resto. Não posso culpar esta encantadora casa de campo.

    Martin2019-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • Este lindo lugar era limpo, silencioso, confortável e as comodidades nos fizeram sentir bem-vindos e rejuvenescidos. É altamente recomendável o celeiro restaurado de Marie. Foi fantástico!

  • Recomendo ficar no lugar de Sean. Cama confortável linda, área tranquila e um espaço privado. Perfeito para uma estadia de trabalho. Infelizmente não chegou a conhecer sean, espero que da próxima vez, mas ela foi rápida com as respostas e muito útil. Seria altamente recomendável.

    Kieran2019-12-06T00:00:00Z
  • Sean é um anfitrião generoso e atencioso, e eu recomendo esta estadia para quem precisa ficar em Dublin, a um custo razoável por noite.

    Alan2019-12-05T00:00:00Z
  • Este lugar fica longe de casa. Ótima localização e fácil de encontrar. Sean é uma jóia e vai recebê-lo de braços abertos em sua casa. Gostaria de visitar novamente!
