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.

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

  • En härlig plats som går till många fantastiska restauranger.

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

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

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

  • Verkligen underbar upplevelse allround.

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

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

Airport bus (41) passes door, 8 min. walk to LUAS Red line, DART, (Connolly and Tara) and city busses. Dublin Bikes stand opposite house. KARIN'S GUIDE TO THE CITY LOCAL GROCERY SHOPPING, SERVICES AND BREAKFAST OPTIONS In general, shopping hours are 9.30-6pm, with late-night shopping till 8pm on Thursdays. Sunday opening is from noon. BREAKFAST The Old Music Store, on North Frederick Street is comfortable and offers a good cooked breakfast. The no-frills Kingfisher Café, on the corner of Parnell Square and Parnell Street West offers a good freshly cooked Irish breakfast and very good fish and chips later in the day. LOCAL GROCERY SHOPPING Tops in Pops, just down the street to the right, for fresh local produce and basic groceries, 8.30am to 6pm Monday to Saturday. They are a fourth-generation local business, who have been trading on the site since 1931. The Londis corner store next door opens 8am to 10pm, but charge for privilege. There is an ATM machine at the back, right hand side of the store. Dunne's Stores, is the indigenous supermarket and department store chain, and has branches in every sizeable town throughout the country. There are two local branches. In North Earl Street, opposite O’Connell Street’s Spire, the Off-Licence (liquor store) is in a separate premises, a few doors apart - look for the James Joyce statue. You will find a bigger branch in the ILAC Shopping Centre, flanked by Henry Street, Moore Street and Parnell Street West (Moore Street entrance is opposite Paris Bakery). There is Metro Tesco on Parnell Street West, just past the Rotunda Hospital. A main branch is to be found in the basement of the Jervis Centre, off Henry Street. Carney’s Butchers, is another multi-generational local family business, which prides itself on the quality of its meat. In keeping with local tradition, they sell fresh fish on Friday’s. F.X. Buckley’s Butchers have two local branches; Moore Street and Talbot Street. This is a very old Dublin business and they have everything; free-range pork, beef and lamb from their own herds, poultry, game in season and fish, and, in the Moore Street branch, a deli counter for cooked meats next door. They are very obliging, and the lads have a great line in smart (sassy) chat. PHARMACIES Foley's Pharmacy on Parnell Street East is a 100+ year-old family business; they are very helpful. Opening hours: Monday-Saturday 9am 6pm. There is a late-night pharmacy, Hickey’s at 55 Lower O’Connell Street, (west side, within the block closest to the river). Opening hours: 8am -10pm M-F, 8.30am-10pm Saturday. 10am 10pm Sunday. Web: (email hidden) POST OFFICES Nearest Post Office is Parnell Street East, at corner of Marlborough Street, but much nicer is the GPO, O’Connell Street. 1828 façade, but badly damaged in the 1916 Rising, and largely rebuilt in 1928. The main hall is beautiful, with its entire original, 1928, fittings intact. It also contains the iconic statue, by Oliver Shepherd, The Dying Cuchullin. You will find a booklet with postal rates in the black folder. BANKS Allied Irish Bank has a branch on O’Connell Street, at the SW junction with Parnell Street, opposite the Rotunda Hospital. ATM in the wall. Bank of Ireland has a branch at Lower O’Connell Street, on the east side of the street, between Middle Abbey Street and Ashton Quay.

Call for (website hidden)(phone number hidden). NORTHSIDE LOCAL RESTAURANTS: 'The Cobalt Cafe', in a beautiful Georgian house on North Great Georges Street, which doubles as a gallery, is great for lunch. Parnell Street, Dublin's emerging 'Chinatown' is just a half a block to the south. Newly opened, on Parnell Square West is 'Mr.Fox', serving modern Irish food in a smart and comfortable setting. Nearer the river, 'Le Bon Crubeen' (crubeen=pig's trotter- it's a modern Franco-Irish restaurant) is on Talbot Street, as is the venerable and immensely popular 'Talbot 101'. It is packed to the gunnels with locals between 5.54 and 7.15, enjoying their pre-theatre supper before the Abbey curtains rise at 7.30, when they relinquish their seats for the rest of us! On the riverfront, I love Panem, facing the Millennium Bridge, for a quick coffee and a delicious Sicilian almond biscuit, baked on the premises. A few doors down, you'll find a cluster of Italian bars, cafes and restaurants serving good quality food. Half a block to the east is the trendy 'Winding Stairs' restaurant, with its book-lined walls (relics of a former second-hand bookshop-cum-cafe of the same name), and it's sister restaurant, The Woollen Mills, while back on Capel Street, locals rave about Brother Hubbard for lunch. LOCAL PUBS include the 'Hill 16' just opposite the house, on Gardiner Street - very popular with the GAA crowd on match days (the Gaelic Athletic Association Stadium, Croke Park, is just 3 blocks to the east), they pull a superb 'pint'. ‘The Heritage Parnell’, on Parnell Street West, just around the corner from O’Connell Street 'The Flowing Tide', on the corner of Marlborough Street, opposite the Abbey Theatre, is one of my favorites - after the curtain goes down in the Abbey, half the cast are likely to be at the bar. A few doors closer to O’Connell Street is Mulligan’s, another very nice pub, dating from the Edwardian era. 'The Church' on Mary Street, in a converted 1720's church, is another fine place for a drink; the former owner won many accolades for the high quality of the restoration. Capel Street has many typical local pubs, which have the added benefit of serving a largely local population. They include 'O’Neill’s' and 'Slattery's which is good for music. 'The Black Sheep' has the local craft beers covered, and does good bar food, (as does its sister pub, ‘The Brew Dock’, on Store Street, at the bottom of Gardiner Street. The north side traditional music 'musician’s' bar is 'The Cobblestone', at the top of Smithfield, and is suitably grungy. DEPARTMENT STORES AND FASHION Henry Street, off O’Connell Street, at the SPIRE, is the premier shopping street on the north side of the river. Here you will find Arnott’s the local department store, which highlights Irish fashion and design, throughout the store, and has several nice cafes. Henry Street also contains large branches of Debenhams and Marks&Spencers, as well as branches of most of the high street fashion chains. There are two large shopping centres, the Jervis, with a large branch of Tesco’s in the Basement, and the ILAC, which has a Dunnes Department Store, with a Food Hall in the basement. (You can shop for fresh produce on adjacent Moore Street, Dublin's oldest street market, now also home to a thriving cluster of ethnic food markets and restaurants.) NORTHSIDE CULTURAL ATTRACTIONS The North side of Parnell Square is home to the city's Hugh Lane Gallery of Modern Art; we share a significant collection of Impressionist painting with the Tate Gallery in London, part of the Hugh Lane Bequest, which is rotated in seven-year cycles. Next door is the Writer's Centre, and next door again, is the Writer's Museum, with a Michelin-starred restaurant in the basement, the amazing Chapter One. Down on the East side of Parnell Square is the beautiful jewel-box that is the Gate Theatre - part of the 18th-century entertainment complex established by the entrepreneurial Dr. Bartholomew, to help support his new Rotunda Maternity Hospital (the oldest purpose-built such hospital in the world, and still delivering babies on a daily basis, 270 years later (9000 is 2012). You could be seated in either the Abbey or Gate Theatres within 10 minutes of leaving the house, and the James Joyce Cultural Centre is even closer, on North Great Georges Street (don't forget to check out the Cobalt Cafe, opposite). Hop on the Luas Red Line, going west, in Abbey Street, halfway between Mountjoy Square and the river, and you will be dropped at the ‘Museum’. The National Museum, Collins Barracks, housed in an old military barracks, dating from 1702, contains the Decorative Arts Collections, (basically, everything post 1700). Descend at the next stop, ‘Heuston’ for IMMA, Ireland's National Museum of Modern Art, housed in the old Kilmainham Hospital, built in the1660’s. It pre-dates the more famous Chelsea Hospital in London by several years. Not to be missed is the Old Jameson Distillery, in Smithfield. Jameson was distilled here until 1971, when three historic distilleries amalgamated, and centralized distilling in Midleton, Co. Cork. The Museum is very well presented; one is guided around the distilling floor, among the huge old pot stills before retiring to the Bar to sample the goods. Nearby is one of the oldest churches in Dublin, St.Michan’s, on Church Street, dating from the mid-11thc. There are several mummified bodies in the basement, thought to be Crusaders. When I was a child, one was allowed to shake their hands….. SOUTHSIDE In the south city centre, the RESTAURANT HUB is in the pedestrian streets to either side of Grafton Street, and in Temple Bar. Particular favourites of mine include: * Nede, Temple Bar Square * Eden Bar and Grill, South William Street * The Green Hen, Wicklow Street * Fallon and Byrne, Exchequer Street, basement wine-bar, full service restaurant first- floor, and coffee bar within the food-hall on the ground floor. * Fade Street Social, Fade Street, tapas bar and full-service restaurant. * The Rustic Stone, Exchequer Street, upmarket, sophisticated and healthy ‘fast food’. * Cornucopia, Wicklow Street- vegetarian café day, full service by evening. * The Port House, South William Street, wine bar and tapas. * Pinxto, Crowe Street, Temple Bar, as above, same management. Southside city-centre TRADITIONAL PUBS we like are: * Mulligan's, Poolbeg Street * Neary's, Chatham Street * Grogan’s, South William Street * International Bar, Wicklow Street * O'Neill's, Suffolk Street * The Dawson Lounge, Dawson Street * The Stag's Head, Connaught Court * The Long Hall, South Great Georges Street * Doheny and Nesbitt’s, Merrion Row * Kehoe’s, South Anne Street * The Duke, Duke Street Fronting the river, TEMPLE BAR, with its vibrant mix of independent shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs, markets and cultural institutions occupies an area three blocks deep and ten blocks long. At the western end, look out for the two branches of the Queen of Tarts- a wonderful teas shop that offers really good home baking and teas and coffees, all served on mismatched antique china (Lord Edward Street and Cow's Lane). TEMPLE BAR FARMERS MARKET, is held every Saturday in Meeting House Square, 9-4.30, now has a smart new tensile roof for wet days, and is a good place to rub shoulders with the locals, whilst sampling local food culture. Don’t miss the Oyster Stall, Hick’s Pork Butchers, or David Llewyllan’s fantastic ‘Double L’ local cider- 100% apple (not even water), and the two local cheese stalls, among others. Don’t’ forget to check out the overflow stalls on Curved Street, where Rossa Crowe’s fantastic bread is on offer- Rossa took himself off to France for two years to train, and now produces slow fermented breads, made with the very best organic flours. NORTHSIDE CULTURAL ATTACTIONS TRINITY COLLEGE is a good orientation point; from here it is easy to find the mediaeval core, the cultural/political hub of the country around Kildare Street, and the Grafton Street fashion hub. The campus occupies a 40-acre (16ha.) site, and is over 400 years old, though what one sees today are mainly beautiful eighteenth-century buildings. It is worth a wander around, after a visit to spectacular Long Library, to see the Book of Kells and other illustrated Celtic manuscripts. From Front Gate, look south to Grafton Street or west up College Green and Dame Street, which lead to the mediaeval core. At the brow of the hill you will find: * Dublin Castle (visit the State Apartments, the Chester Beatty Library and the lovely garden in front (which is actually the helicopter-landing pad for the Castle). * The City Hall with its 'Museum of the Capital' in the basement is worth a look- the Hall is free, and there is a nominal charge for the Museum. * Christchurch Cathedral * Dublinia-in the Christchurch Chapterhouse (Viking Exhibition). * Old Saint Audeon's Church, built almost into the city wall. * St Patrick's Cathedral, and historic park beside. * Marshe's Library-the oldest public library in these islands, 1701. * Francis Street- the Antiques Quarter. * Thomas Street/Meath Street, for a touch of 'Old Dublin'. * The Guinness Storehouse. * Royal Hospital, Kilmainham, (IMMA) Ireland's National Gallery of Modern Art, with its wonderful, recently restored formal garden. KILMINHAM GAOL is worth a visit, and tells the story of Irish Nationalism. It can be reached via the grounds of IMMA, passing Bully’s Acre, and old graveyard, where Brian Boru was reputedly rested on his way to his final burial place in Armagh. Alternatively, exit onto Nassau Street, with its cluster of high-quality shops showcasing the best of Irish crafts - fashion, knitwear, weaving, glassware, ceramics and contemporary jewellery - the Kilkenny Shop has a great cafe upstairs, with views over College Park. Continue along the College Park railings till you reach Kildare Street, the cultural-institutional hub of the country. All of our national cultural institutions have free admission. Here you will find the National Library, and the National Museum, facing each other over the forecourt of Leinster House, home to the Oireachtas, our National Parliament. The National Library has a lovely exhibit on the poet, W.B. Yeats, and the Treasury, in the National Museum houses both the Bronze Age and Early Christian collections. On the opposite side of the block, on Merrion Street/Merrion Square, you will find the National Gallery, and the Natural History Museum (known to Dubliner's of my father's generation, as 'The Dead Zoo’. This is a very refreshing look to the past, with absolutely no interpretation, and nothing, not even a postcard, to buy). The National Gallery is halfway through a four-year renovation programme; in the meantime, the Millennium Wing, on Clare Street, has a ‘highlights of’ exhibition, and the Café and Gift Shop are also accessed via the Clare Street Entrance. GETTING AROUND Two operators offer Hop-On/Hop-Off tours: (website hidden) (website hidden) They both offer a 2-day ticket, and cost roughly the same price - check them out online before you make up your mind. One can buy an integrated LEAP card in most newsagents, at train stations, and in the Dublin Bus Head Office at 42 O’Connell Street (on the west side of the street, just north of the Spire). This can be used on the LUAS, DART, some suburban mainline trains, and on Dublin Bus routes. There is also a 3-day tourist pass, the Freedom Ticket, which provides good value. €28 will give you 72 hours transport, starting at the Airport; Airlink from the airport, the Hop-On-Hop –Off tourist bus and all local bus routes. Web: (website hidden) •The DART, the local electric commuter train, runs north/south along the coast. The northside city centre station is Connolly, on Amiens Street, facing Talbot Street, but I usually suggest people use Tara Street, as Connolly is also a mainline station, and is very big, and a bit confusing. Tara is purely a commuter station, and is about the same distance. It is on George’s Quay, just south of the Custom House. The other south-side city centre station is Pearse, on Westland Row, at the south end of the Trinity campus. •The LUAS Red Line runs east-west through the north side of the city, as far east as the docks, and serves both Connolly and Heuston mainline stations. The nearest stop to Mountjoy Square is Abbey, on Middle Abbey Street, opposite the Abbey Theatre. The LUAS Green Line serves the south suburbs; Ranelagh, Dundrum, Leopardstown Racecourse, and on out to Cherrywood, on the county boundary with Wicklow. •Main cross-city bus routes run north-south through O’Connell Street. The No.7 terminates on Mountjoy Square North, and there is a ‘shopper’s fare’ of 70c, to Grafton Street- alight at Trinity. On the return journey it skirts the Trinity campus and comes along Pearse, to the east of the campus - catch it on Clare Street, at the Millennium wing of the National Gallery. •DUBLIN BIKES are free to use for the first half hour, and have a stand on Mountjoy Square West, but one needs to go to the Princes Street stand (to the right hand side of the General Post Office (GPO)), to purchase a short term card. It costs €2, and is only available to credit card holders. SHOPPING WITH A DIFFERENCE Those interested in the local fashion, art and design scene should look out for the following addresses (in no particular order): •Designist, South Great George's Street (stock chosen for good design) •Irish Design Store, Drury Street •Article, Powerscourt Townhouse Centre (housewares) •Irish Designer Store, Top floor Powerscourt Townhouse Centre •Cow's Lane Gallery, Temple Bar (artist’s collective) •The Jam Factory, Nicholas Street (artist’s collective) •Avoca, Suffolk Street •Kilkenny Shop, Nassau Street •Designyard, South Frederick Street (jewellery) •Louise Kennedy, couturier, Merrion Square, and Tipperary Crystal •Gallery Zozimus, Francis Street (art gallery and carefully chosen crafts) •Graphic Studio Gallery, Temple Bar (artist-printmaker’s gallery) •Malthouse Design Centre and Shop, Distillery Court, 537 North Circular Road, just around the corner from Mountjoy Square (cluster of design-led businesses, 10-5 M-F) •Magee's of Donegal, Wicklow Street, and, •Kevin and Howlin, Nassau Street have hand-woven tweeds covered. •Dubarry's, College Green produce wonderful, country-style outerwear, including the most perfect alternative to sweaty, waterproof Wellington boots… •Monaghan's, Hibernian Way, the House of Ireland on Nassau Street and the Sweater Shops on Wicklow Street and Nassau Street has the best selections of traditional knitwear. Monaghan's specialise in cashmere. •Murphy and Sheehy, Castle Market, stock Irish tweed, Irish linen and a quirky selection of designer fabrics. Look out for their ‘Linen Union (linen/cotton blend) Glass Cloths- the best ever for polishing glassware, they make a super, useful, inexpensive and lightweight traditional gift! •The Cloth Shop, St. William Street, for interesting designer fabric, including a good selection of Irish Linen, and Liberty of London INDEPENDENT BOOKSHOPS and MUSIC STORES Eason’s, O’Connell Street, is a Dublin institution for over 100 years. It encompasses a large stationery department, a branch of Tower Records on the top floor, academic books in the basement, a nice café and two floors of general books. It is a good place to browse books of Irish interest, and they have a really good Information Desk. Chapters, Parnell Street West is my ‘local’. John Gannon is one of the best booksellers in the business, and his staff are hand-picked enthusiastic bibliophiles, one and all. Stock is a mixture of the latest releases, and carefully chosen remaindered books. Their ordering service is superlative, and they ALWAYS know exactly what one is talking about, even with just the vaguest, half-remembered clues from a newspaper review. Very strong on contemporary fiction, natural history, non-fiction and books of Irish interest. Extensive second-hand section upstairs. The Secret Bookstore, Wicklow Street is another favourite. It’s tucked away down a passage, near the L’Occitane shop and often throws up gems among its large second-hand stock. An eclectic music store occupies the rear of the shop. Cathach Rare Books, Duke Street, specializes in Irish first editions, and have an interesting selection of Irish maps and prints. Stokes Books is another interesting antiquarian/secondhand shop, specializing in books of Irish interest. You’ll find it in Georges Street Arcade. Claddagh Records, Cecelia Street, Temple Bar, is primarily a music publisher, but they have a retail outlet in Temple Bar, which is the oldest independent music shop in Dublin, and specializes in traditional Irish music, with some interesting World Music additions. The Celtic Note, on Nassau Street, beside the Kilkenny Shop is another good bet. PLACES OF WORSHIP: Roman Catholic: Many Catholic churches have Mass on Saturday evening, in addition to morning Masses. •St. Francis Xavier Roman Catholic Church, Upper Gardiner Street. Gospel Mass, 7.30pm Sundays, September to mid June. •St. Mary's Metropolitan Church - the Pro-Cathedral, Marlborough. Sung Mass, 11am, Sundays, with the Palestrina Choir. •St. Joseph’s Church, Berkeley Road, Dublin 7. •St. Teresa’s Church, Clarendon Street Church, choir sings at 11 o’clock Mass, Sunday’s •St. Peter’s Church, Phibsborough, Dublin 7, has wonderful Harry Clarke (phone number hidden)) stained glass windows. •Whitefriars Street Church, Aungier Street, church has relics of St. Valentine. Church of Ireland: •Christchurch Cathedral, Christchurch Place, sung Services Sundays, •St. Patrick's Cathedral, Nicholas Street, sung Services Sundays. •St. Anne’s Church, Dawson Street, Dublin 2 Jewish: Dublin Hebrew Congregation (website hidden) Daily services in Synagogue at 32a Rathfarnham Road, Public Transport: Buses: (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN). Get off at Terenure Cross (road). Walk up Rathfarnham Road, pass AIB Bank and one row of terraced houses; shul is next building, with wooden/metal security gates.

SHORT TRIPS OUTSIDE THE CITY BY PUBLIC TRANSPORT NORTH: Catch the No.46A bus, (heading north on O'Connell Street to the Phoenix Park- the largest enclosed urban park in the world, 1750 acres behind a seven-mile-long stone wall. Ashtown Castle Interpretive Centre, with its wonderful walled garden and café is a good place to orient oneself. From here, on Saturdays, it is possible to visit Aras an Uachtarian, the official residence of our President. One can also visit Farmliegh, the Official State Guesthouse, a former Guinness mansion. Among it’s attractions are an art gallery, café, occasional free concerts, and regular weekend Farmer’s Markets. The Park also houses the Dublin Zoo, (1827, the second-oldest Zoo in the world, after London’s Regent Park Zoo). Several herd of Fallow Deer roam at liberty. Many sports are catered for; there is Polo ground, a cricket club, and lots soccer pitches. The Duke of Wellington is commemorated by a marvelous granite obelisk, which can be seen for miles. The area know as the Forty Acres affords superb views over the city, with the Royal Hospital and Guinness in the foreground, along the south side of the River Liffey. Phoenix Park can also be reached via the LUAS Red Line, direction Tallagh, heading west. Alight at 'Museum' and take a detour into the National Museum-Collins Barracks, which houses the Decorative Arts, post-1700, wonderful collections of silver, furniture, glass and other artifacts. Just up the road, in Glasnevin there are three worthwhile attractions: Glasnevin Cemetary, was founded by Daniel O’Connell as one of his first initiatives, post Catholic Emancipation in 1829, to provide a dignified place for Catholic burial. The Glasnevin Musuem is new, and has superlative displays of Nationalist history. They also have a very good Geneology Department. The National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin, date from the end of 18thC. Though relatively small, they contain an internationally-aclaimed collection of plants and three iconic Glasshouses, by Turner of Dublin, which have all been restored in the recent past. There is a nice café in the Gardens, and entry is free. The Gravedigger’s Pub, over-looking a Green, is not to be missed. It got its name from the fact that there used to be a hatch in the rear wall, through which the gravediggers were served. They do nice simple pub food, and one can sit outside on sunny days. Walk back into town, and stop at either the The Botanic Bar at Harte’s Corner or the Brian Borus, typicl local bars. The Porter House, at Cross Guns Bridge, which is a micro-brewery, with nice food, is on the corner of the Royal Canal. Take a stroll east down the canal bank, and you will see swans, and moor-hens going about their business. At the next bridge, at Dorset Street look out for the lifesize bronze statue of Brendan Behan, a local author. From here is just a few minute’s stroll up Belvidere Place, with its charming stepped terraces of tall Georgian houses, to Mountjoy Square. Another favorite is the Marino Casino, in Fairview/Clontarf, an early 18th century pleasure house, built to the design of Sir William Chambers, for Lord Charlemont, purely for entertaining, also just a few miles by bus, north of the city centre. Catch the DART, the coastal commuter train, heading north, at Tara Street Station, on the South Liffey quays, at Butt Bridge, and take a short ride. You have the choice of Howth (a working fishing village) or Malahide. Howth Demesne or Howth Head, behind the village will both afford walks with great views; the Harbour has a dozen restaurants along the quay- ranging from take-out fish and chips to the very upmarket. Book an early-evening window table at Aqua, and be astonished by the sunset over the coast, looking north-west. Another favourite of mine is Deep, midway along the quay (and do watch out for the local tame and greedy Harbour Seal, who begs shamelessly from the trawler men, who tie up alongside). Malahide is a charming village, with some of the most expensive urban residential properties in the country. Good food and good shopping are to be had here. On the edge of the village you will find Malahide Castle and Demesne, open to the public, which includes a renowned private Arboretum, as Milo de Malahide, the last of his family, (who had occupied the castle continuously since Norman times, in the 10th-12th centuries) was a significant plants-man. The Castle contains the National Portrait Collection, as was as magnificent furniture and other contents. There is a smart new branch of the AVOCA Shop and Café in the Courtyard. SOUTH: South of the city you will find Rathfarnham Castle, and its Berkeley Costume and Toy Collection. Marley Park is a little further, just at the foot of the Dublin Mountains. It has wonderful parkland with easy walks, and a magnificent walled garden with a nice cafe. The No.16 bus, from O’Connell Street will leave you close by. Powerscourt is at the edge of Enniskerry, its associated estate village, at the end of the No.44 bus route, which winds its way through the south side suburbs, into Wicklow, through the Scalp, a deep and picturesque glacial valley. The 19th century gardens are fabulous, and make great use of the 'borrowed landscape' beyond. The terrace and Nepture fountain are centred on the Sugarloaf mountain, which marks the beginning of the Wicklow Mountains. The Powerscourt Waterfall, part of the same estate, is a few miles further on, and there are beautiful, way-marked, woodland and moorland walks in the hills nearby. Do be mindful; these ‘mountains’ can be deceptive- while not high, they can be treacherous, as weather conditions can change in minutes. Stick to the way-marked paths, and do keep an eye on the weather. Take the DART south to Bray and Greystones - via Dun Loughaire, Dalkey and Killiney - all interesting villages, with many cafes and restaurants. Killiney Hill, with its eighteenth century obelisk at the summit, is a short climb that results in amazing views over Dublin Bay, and down into the Wicklow Mountains beyond. There is a nice pub in in the ‘village’- ‘The Druid’s Chair’. Dalkey is a charming village with old-fashioned shops and lots of nice pubs, cafes and restaurants. The local Dalkey Castle Heritage Centre, is worth checking out, and in the summer run a theatre programme, and walking tours. Bray Esplanade is a classic Victorian seaside amenity, sturdily built from local granite - the perfect place to enjoy an ice-cream. Campo di Fiori, either the Restaurant or the Café, both near the train station and the north end of the Promenade, are particular favourites of mine. If one is feeling energetic, one could contemplate the Cliff Walk from Bray to Greystones - 4miles/6km along the rough cliff path. Lots of nice pubs for a pint of Guinness at the other end, The Hungry Pear is my favourite café, among many. The DART will take you straight back into the city. But.. make sure to do it in the morning, as by mid-day the path is in shade, and it can be windy and cold. WEST: Travelling into the rich plains of Kildare, by the No. 67 bus route, you will come to the historic village of Celbridge, just twelve miles from the city centre. Castletown House is Ireland's finest Palladian mansion, and was saved from destruction by Desmond Guinness, in the early 1960's. He purchased it from the construction company who had acquired it. They intended to demolish it, to make way for a vast suburban housing estate. The Irish Georgian Society, founded by Desmond Guinness, restored the house and furnished it with the help of many volunteers and sponsors, and opened it to the public, a heroic task for a small membership conservation society. Today, it is in State ownership, and it is the flagship Georgian heritage property of Ireland. It is beautifully presented, and the parklands are undergoing restoration. A local bus, or the commuter train from Connolly Station in Amiens Street, will take one to Maynooth, a charming University town, with another magnificent Palladian mansion, Carton House, now operating as a very upmarket hotel and golf club. Lots of companies offer day-long coach tours. Some involve very long days, i.e, Cliffs of Moher in Clare and the Giant’s Causeway on the Antrim coast. Two more local, and very worthwhile ones are either: The Boyne Valley Tour (Newgrange Neolithic ( 5000 yr old World Heritage Site) / Mellifont Cistercian ruins- (12thC.)/ Monasterboice Early Christian (6th-8thC.) The Wicklow-Glendalough Tour (Powerscourt / Wicklow Mountains National Park and Glendalough (Glen of the Two Lakes) a 6thC. Early Christian site, in beautiful wooded valley. Details of both of these trips, and others, are available in the big black folder in the apartment.
    A beautiful, historic residential square, built in 1790's, within 5-10 minutes walk of down-town city centre. Elegance and convenience combined with a bit of inner city grittiness. I have loved it all, since 1978! Mountjoy Square is situated just NE of the historic city centre, within walking distance of just about all the main city attractions. It is the most densely populated area in the entire city: 1500 people have front doors opening onto the Square. The house fronts onto a 4acre/1.5ha park, across a fairly busy street. This apartment faces the side street, so it is quieter, but you will still hear traffic.....Please bear in mind that this is NOT LEAFY SUBURBIA, but a vibrant, living city community and it's definitely gritty in places... Having said that, I have lived here, uneventfully, for nearly 38 years, and consider the trade-offs well worth it, for the excitement and convenience of having the city on my doorstep..
  • Vi kan inte rekommendera denna Air BnB tillräckligt! Snabbt svar, utrymmet var mer än vi trodde. Jackie vägledde oss och gav oss användbara tips. Huset är vackert och uppenbarligen älskat. Vårt enda klagomål var att vi inte stannade längre. Tack för att du gjorde vår resa så minnesvärd.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Tel: +(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) Anwar-up-Madina Moore Street, Dublin 1. SHORT TRIPS OUTSIDE THE CITY BY PUBLIC TRANSPORT NORTH: Catch the No.46A bus, (heading north on O'Connell Street to the Phoenix Park- the largest enclosed urban park in the world, 1750 acres behind a seven-mile-long stone wall. Ashtown Castle Interpretive Centre, with its wonderful walled garden and café is a good place to orient oneself. From here, on Saturdays, it is possible to visit Aras an Uachtarian, the official residence of our President. One can also visit Farmliegh, the Official State Guesthouse, a former Guinness mansion. Among it’s attractions are an art gallery, café, occasional free concerts, and regular weekend Farmer’s Markets. The Park also houses the Dublin Zoo, (1827, the second-oldest Zoo in the world, after London’s Regent Park Zoo). Several herd of Fallow Deer roam at liberty. Many sports are catered for; there is Polo ground, a cricket club, and lots soccer pitches. The Duke of Wellington is commemorated by a marvellous Sobelisk, and the Forty Acres affords superb views over the city, with the Royal Hospital and Guinness Brewery in the foreground, along the south side of the River Liffey. Phoenix Park can also be reached via the LUAS Red Line, direction Tallagh, heading west. Alight at 'Museum' and take a detour into the National Museum-Collins Barracks, which houses the Decorative Arts, post-1700, wonderful collections of silver, furniture, glass and other artifacts. Just up the road, in Glasnevin, there are three worthwhile attractions: Glasnevin Cemetary, was founded by Daniel O’Connell as one of his first initiatives, post Catholic Emancipation in 1829, to provide a dignified place for Catholic burial. The Glasnevin Museum is new, and has superlative displays of Nationalist history. They also have a very good Geneology Department. The National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin, date from the end of 18thC. Though relatively small, they contain an internationally-aclaimed collection of plants and three iconic Glasshouses, by Turner of Dublin, which have all been restored in the recent past. There is a nice café in the Gardens, and entry is free. The Gravedigger’s Pub, over-looking a Green, is not to be missed. It acquired its name from the fact that there used to be a hatch in the rear wall, through which the gravediggers were served. They do nice simple pub food, and one can sit outside on sunny days. Walk back into town, and stop at either the The Botanic Bar at Harte’s Corner or the Brian Boru, typicl local bars. The Whitworth, at Cross Guns Bridge, with nice food, is on the corner of the Royal Canal. Take a stroll east down the canal bank, and you will see swans, and moor-hens going about their business. At the next bridge, at Dorset Street, look out for the lifesize bronze statue of Brendan Behan, a local author. From here is just a few minute’s stroll up Belvidere Place, with its charming stepped terraces of tall Georgian houses, to Mountjoy Square. Another favourite is the Marino Casino, in Fairview/Clontarf, an early 18th century pleasure house, built to the design of Sir William Chambers, for Lord Charlemont, purely for entertaining, also just a few miles by bus, north of the city centre. Catch the DART, the coastal commuter train, heading north, at Tara Street Station, on the South Liffey quays, at Butt Bridge, and take a short ride. You have the choice of Howth (a working fishing village) or Malahide. Howth Demesne or Howth Head, behind the village will both afford walks with great views; the Harbour has a dozen restaurants along the quay- ranging from take-out fish and chips to the very upmarket. Book an early-evening window table at Aqua, and be astonished by the sunset over the coast, looking north-west. Another favourite of mine is Deep, midway along the quay (and do watch out for the local tame and greedy Harbour Seal, who begs shamelessly from the trawler men, who tie up alongside). Malahide is a charming village, with some of the most expensive urban residential properties in the country. Good food and good shopping are to be had here. On the edge of the village you will find Malahide Castle and Demesne, open to the public, which includes a renowned private Arboretum, as Milo de Malahide, the last of his family, (who had occupied the castle continuously since Norman times, in the 10th-12th centuries) was a significant plants-man. The Castle contains the National Portrait Collection, as was as magnificent furniture and other contents. There is a smart new branch of the AVOCA Shop and Café in the Courtyard. Oliver Dunne's restaurant, Bon Appetit, on St. James Terrace, has superb food in elegant, relaxed surroundings.(This restaurant had a Michelin star for years, but the chef/patron decided to return it, and simplify his life - a case of 'been there-done that'.) SOUTH: South of the city you will find Rathfarnham Castle, and its Berkeley Costume and Toy Collection (No. 16 bus). Marley Park is a little further, just at the foot of the Dublin Mountains. It has wonderful parkland with easy walks, and a magnificent walled garden with a nice cafe. The No.16 bus, from O’Connell Street will leave you close by. Powerscourt is at the edge of Enniskerry, its associated estate village, at the end of the No.44 bus route, which winds its way through the south side suburbs, into Wicklow, through the Scalp, a deep and picturesque glacial valley. The 19th century gardens are fabulous, and make great use of the 'borrowed landscape' beyond. The terrace and Nepture fountain are centred on the Sugarloaf mountain, which marks the beginning of the Wicklow Mountains. The Powerscourt Waterfall, part of the same estate, is a few miles further on, and there are beautiful, way-marked, woodland and moorland walks in the hills nearby. Do be mindful; these ‘mountains’ can be deceptive- while not high, they can be treacherous, as weather conditions can change in minutes. Stick to the way-marked paths, and do keep an eye on the weather. Take the DART south to Bray and Greystones - via Dun Loughaire, Dalkey and Killiney - all interesting villages, with many cafes and restaurants. Killiney Hill, with its eighteenth century obelisk at the summit, is a short climb that results in amazing views over Dublin Bay, and down into the Wicklow Mountains beyond. There is a nice pub in in the ‘village’- ‘The Druid’s Chair’. Dalkey is a charming village with old-fashioned shops and lots of nice pubs, cafes and restaurants. The local Dalkey Castle Heritage Centre, is worth checking out, and in the summer run a theatre programme, and walking tours. Bray Esplanade is a classic Victorian seaside amenity, sturdily built from local granite - the perfect place to enjoy an ice-cream. Campo di Fiori, either the Restaurant or the Café, both near the train station and the north end of the Promenade, are particular favourites of mine. If one is feeling energetic, one could contemplate the Cliff Walk from Bray to Greystones - 4miles/6km along the rough cliff path. Lots of nice pubs for a pint of Guinness at the other end, The Hungry Pear is my favourite café, among many. The DART will take you straight back into the city. But.. make sure to do it in the morning, as by mid-day the path is in shade, and it can be windy and cold. WEST: Travelling into the rich plains of Kildare, by the No. 67 bus route, you will come to the historic village of Celbridge, just twelve miles from the city centre. Castletown House is Ireland's finest Palladian mansion, and was saved from destruction by Desmond Guinness, in the early 1960's. He purchased it from the construction company who had acquired it. They intended to demolish it, to make way for a vast suburban housing estate. The Irish Georgian Society, founded by Desmond Guinness, restored the house and furnished it with the help of many volunteers and sponsors, and opened it to the public, a heroic task for a small membership conservation society. Today, it is in State ownership, and it is the flagship Georgian heritage property of Ireland. It is beautifully presented, and the parklands are undergoing restoration. A local bus, or the commuter train from Connolly Station in Amiens Street, will take one to Maynooth, a charming University town, with another magnificent Palladian mansion, Carton House, now operating as a very upmarket hotel and golf club. Lots of companies offer day-long coach tours. Some involve very long days, i.e, Cliffs of Moher in Clare and the Giant’s Causeway on the Antrim coast. Two more local, and very worthwhile ones are either: The Boyne Valley Tour (Newgrange Neolithic ( 5000 yr old World Heritage Site) / Mellifont Cistercian ruins- (12thC.)/ Monasterboice Early Christian (6th-8thC.) The Wicklow-Glendalough Tour (Powerscourt / Wicklow Mountains National Park and Glendalough (Glen of the Two Lakes) a 6thC. Early Christian site, in beautiful wooded valley. Details of both of these trips, and others, are available in the big black folder in the apartment.
    A beautiful, historic residential square, built in 1790's, within 5-10 minutes walk of the city centre. Elegance and convenience combined with a bit of inner city grittiness. I have loved it all, since 1978!
  • Historiskt hem nära restauranger.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  • Vart ska jag börja?! Hemmet är vackert och med ett utmärkt läge. Men Sarah är en av de vänligaste människorna vi någonsin har träffat. Hon gjorde vårt första besök i Irland oförglömligt. Vår irländska mamma

    Brooke2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • En fantastisk natt bort, plats, utrymme och bekvämligheter var perfekt för vår helg och värdarna var bara så välkomnande. Det är lättillgängligt från huvudvägarna och flygplatsen och en kort resa till centrum. Vi planerar redan att boka för nästa år! Tack igen för en härlig vistelse.

    Aisling2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Jag kan inte tala tillräckligt mycket om Sarah och hennes vackra hem. Vår landningstid för flygningen var utanför incheckningstiden, och hon välkomnade oss med te och konversation. Rummen är så bekväma. Så dumt som det verkar var vattentrycket märkbart. Vi stannade i många hotell och BnBs under våra smekmånad resor, och vattentrycket här var fenomenal i jämförelse. Utrymmet är helt underbart också. Vi kommer absolut tillbaka. Sarah är den absolut bästa värden vi någonsin har haft, och hon är en verkligt underbar person.

    Cassandra2019-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • Sarah är en enastående värd som erbjuder att hämta matvaror och ge en tillfällig hiss till Castleknock Village. Hon och hennes familj var de perfekta guiderna för saker att göra och se i Dublin! Phoenix Park är en fantastisk plats bara ett halvt kvarter bort. Castleknock-restaurangerna - särskilt Castello Bruno var otroliga! Vi har haft bastun och platsen är bara en snabb hyttur till stora attraktioner !! Jag rekommenderar att du stannar här med familj och vänner för att njuta av Dublin magi & charm!

    Kathleen2019-11-09T00:00:00Z
  • Detta är en fantastisk plats att bo. Vi kan inte säga tillräckligt bra saker om det. Du blir inte besviken om du stannar här. Vi kan knappt vänta med att komma tillbaka.

    Steve2019-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • Den enastående gästfrihet som vi fick här sätter baren högt för Irland. Vi kände genast som om vi var en del av familjen, och själva Airbnb var otroligt. Definitivt stanna här om du har chansen!

    Jessica2019-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • Sarahs plats är ett fantastiskt hus. Hon är en stor värd, hjälpsam och lyhörd. Ett bra socialt utrymme för gäster utan att vara ovanpå varandra. Definitivt en att tänka på för stora grupper som reser.

    Dublin, Irland

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

Dublin two main pedestrian shopping streets, Grafton and Henry St are about 5 minutes away. Trinity College with its famous Library is 3 minutes walk. Dublin is experiencing a Renaissance after a long recession and every week a new exciting restaurant, cultural space or play is opening. It is a great time to be visiting!
  • Dardos plats är fantastisk! Stora fönster med utsikt mot floden Liffey och broen Ha'penny. Det är i det perfekta centrala läget, gångavstånd till allt du vill göra i Dublin. Det finns mycket nattliv i Temple bar och om du är typ att gå i säng tidigt, ta med några öronproppar.

    Autumn2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Letar du efter en perfekt plats i Dublin? Sluta titta RÄTT HÄR. Denna översyn behöver inget annat.

    John2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Dardos rena och eleganta loft var det perfekta läget för oss att basera oss i Dublin för våra stadsäventyr och nära bussupphämtningar för våra otroliga dagsturer. Du har verkligen mitt i hjärtat av stadens centrum. Med det sagt så får du stadsbrus särskilt på fredagar och lördagar så om det stör dig, fungerade öronproppar helt fint! Det fanns gott om pubar, restauranger, shopping och andra tjänster i närheten. Dardo var en stor värd och var mycket lyhörd för våra frågor och var snabb med vår nyckelupphämtning. Det gick inte att be om en bättre värd och vi uppskattade hans rekommendationer! Tack igen Dardo för att vi tillät oss att använda ditt utrymme! Vi vill redan planera en resa tillbaka!

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

    Simon2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Mycket trevligt ställe, fantastiskt läge!

    Chester2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Dardos plats var fantastisk! Perfekt perfekt perfekt läge, mycket ren, bra kommunikation! Kommer att stanna här igen i framtiden!

    Alysia2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • En fantastisk plats! Platsen var otroligt liksom vyerna. Älskade att gå ut genom dörren och vara i hjärtat av allt det vi ville göra. Dardo var fantastisk, platsen var fantastisk ... en mycket bra upplevelse och jag hoppas få möjlighet att stanna där igen.

    Jack2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Vackert läge! Härlig platt och mycket vänlig värd.

    Dublin, Dublin, Irland

    Superb city centre location within walking distance of all major tourist attractions (see below for times).

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

  • Riktigt trevlig lägenhet med alla bekvämligheter och ett riktigt trevligt läge!

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

  • Livlig modern lägenhet!, På ett perfekt läge! Perfekt för de få dagarna vi stannade! Enkel åtkomst och Liam var en stor värd!

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

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

  • Stannade i 3 dagar och det är en härlig plats att koppla bort. Plats med fantastisk utsikt över sjön och mycket lätt att ta sig runt. Liten hamn i närheten för att ta en promenad. Allt du behöver är där. Barry och hans mamma var mycket tillmötesgående och mycket vänliga, alltid villiga att hjälpa till. Vi skulle definitivt komma igen!

    Bianca-Denise2019-09-27T00:00:00Z

    Delia2019-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • Denna plats är i ett vackert läge, nära en lokal by, och värt att bo om du inte har något emot enheten. Barry är mycket vänlig, snabb att svara och besvarade alla frågor vi kan ha haft. Om vi någonsin befinner oss i Irland igen kommer jag att hålla denna plats bokmärkt.

    Christiana2019-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastiskt litet båthus med fantastisk utsikt över Lough Derg. Huset är mycket kärleksfullt inredda med många små detaljer. Barry och hans mamma är super trevliga och ivriga att få dig att må bra. Men du måste vara medveten om att båthuset är på vattnet och du måste förvänta dig spindlar och liknande. Men även med detta "lilla problem" hjälpte Barry oss omedelbart. Sammantaget var det en vacker vistelse som vi inte kommer att glömma. :)

    Lisa2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • Hej Barry. Tack för dessa härliga två dagar. Allt bra. Vi hade en trevlig vistelse på din härliga plats. Jag tycker att det är en vacker plats också på vintern.

    Giulio2019-07-05T00:00:00Z
  • Denna plats är bara fantastiskt! Underbara vyer och mycket vänliga lokalbefolkningen. Vacker plats att komma och koppla av och göra lite sightseeing!

    Hazel2018-04-10T00:00:00Z
  • Om möjligheten hälsar dig, missa inte en vistelse på denna fantastiska båthus. Barry och hans folk är otroligt fantastiska värdar. Vi hälsades av Barrys pappa och eskorterades till sjön där Barry väntade på att hjälpa oss med våra väskor och visa oss runt. Den första morgonen tog Barry sin mamma varm, hemlagad scones och sylt till oss. Båthuset är en magisk plats och månuppgången över sjön, en vackraste syn. Vi önskade att vi hade mer än 2 dagar att spendera här. Om det var en 6 stjärna eller mer betyg, får Pops Dream det! Jan & Mike

    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
  • Peter är en underbar person och en stor värd, och hans slott är vackert. Vi bokade en natt på Peters slott i hopp om att lägga till ett unikt element till vår resa till Irland och Peter levererade. Peter hälsade oss varmt, hjälpte oss med vårt bagage uppför den slingrande trappan, gav oss en rundtur i de två nivåerna hyresgäster har tillgång till, berättade historier om slottet och restaureringen och rekommenderade sätt att spendera vår tid i stan. Han är bra på att kommunicera via AirBnB-appen och samordna en ankomsttid. Jag skulle rekommendera Peter och hans slott till alla som vill lägga till en unik, äkta och minnesvärd twist till deras resa i Irland. Läs hans lista i sin helhet innan du bokar, han är mycket rättvis när han beskriver fastigheten och boendet. Men bilderna gör inte det arbete han har gjort rättvisa för att återställa fastigheten. Slottet är fullt av vacker karaktär och unika detaljer. Vi är mycket tacksamma för att du har tillbringat en natt på vår resa i slottet och skulle också rekommendera det till andra. Tack Peter !!!

    Mark2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Wow, vad kan jag säga. Jag hade höga förväntningar och platsen blåste dem ur vattnet! Verkligen en unik plats och upplevelse som illustrerar hur värdefull en tjänst AirBnB kan vara. Detta slott är ett arbete med kärlek till värden, Pete, och vår chatt med honom om dess historia och hur det kom till var en höjdpunkt under hela veckan i Irland. Du kommer att ha de två översta våningarna för dig själv, plus taket (jag rekommenderar att du är där uppe vid soluppgången, oavsett temperatur) och det kändes mycket privat. Jag vill inte ärligt ge bort något annat om platsen, och vill att andra bara ska lita på att det är fantastiskt och uppleva det färskt. Tack Pete för att du delade din dröm med världen. Jag kommer tillbaka!

    Matthew2019-11-15T00:00:00Z
  • Jag och min pojkvän stannar i slottet en natt och vi var båda sprängda av allt! Vackert slott vackert rum med fantastisk utsikt från toppen, med de två översta våningarna innebar att vi hade vår integritet. Fantastiskt vardagsrum med allt du kan behöva och brusande eldar höll oss mysiga. Värdarna var så vänliga och vänliga mot oss och fick oss att känna oss mycket välkomna. Kunde inte ha haft en bättre natt!

    Ken2019-11-14T00:00:00Z
  • Att bo på Peters slott var ren magi. Det är fantastiskt att höra historien om hur han har återställt den och verkligen uppnått en livslång dröm. Han och hans familj är väldigt varma och begåvade människor, och när det var dags att lämna ville vi verkligen inte säga adjö till dem, eller det vackra hem som vi hade tillbringat natten i. Från stentrappuppgången till utsikten från taket vid soluppgången, Petes slott är en plats som vi aldrig kommer att glömma.

    Kristi2019-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • En av de mysigaste och coolaste platserna att bo på i Irland. Mycket intressant bakre historia till renoveringen av slottet och värden, Peter, är extremt vänlig och kunnig!

    Christine2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • Älskade, älskade, älskade vår vistelse, en sådan spektakulär plats att bo, unik och fantastisk ... Värdarna är fantastiska! Vitig, informativ, varm och intressant ... En riktigt fantastisk upplevelse ... Massivt tack till er båda!

    Shelly2019-11-09T00:00:00Z
  • Förvänta dig en vistelse i ett autentiskt slott där alla bekvämligheter och bekvämligheter har förväntats noggrant. Förvänta dig en mycket varm mottagning från en värd som verkligen bryr sig om sina gäster, som har sett till varje detalj utöver dina förväntningar. Förvänta dig att njuta av fantastiska utsikter från slottets tak, miles av underbara gröna landskap som är täckta av morgonen dimma. Räknar med att behandlas som royalty. Detta var ett magiskt minne som vi aldrig kommer att glömma.

    Betsy2019-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • Om du letar efter boende som är ovanligt är det bara för dig. Min flickvän och jag stannade en natt och var ledsna att lämna. Det är en av de coolaste platserna vi någonsin har stannat kvar i och vi kommer från Galway. Pete och hans familj är alla så välkomnande och vänliga. Försök här, du kommer inte ångra det.

    The Cow Shed is a cosy, rustic converted byre situated in a very tranquil scenic area. The view from the cottage looks towards the beautiful Glendowan mountains and Glenveagh National Park. Ideal for a peaceful retreat or a great base to explore
    The cottage consists of an open plan living, dining and kitchenette area with a double sleeping mezzanine above. There is a small bathroom with an electric shower. The kitchenette contains an electric hob, a small combination convection oven, microwave and grill and a small fridge. Guests have access to a washing machine in an adjacent outbuilding. The space is heated by a wood-burning stove with fuel provided. The guest cottage has a private garden, seating area and barbeque to the rear. As the byre was originally part of a small farm, our own traditional cottage sits on the same site. If The Cow Shed is unavailable for the dates you are interested in, please check out our other listings. The Hide is a cosy, handcrafted cabin nestled on a slope at the opposite end of our house from the cottage. The Birdbox is our little handcrafted treehouse nestled in mature trees behind The Cow Shed.
    We are centrally located in a beautiful part of Donegal, close to most of its attractions. The cottage is nestled in a valley 3km from the scenic village of Fintown. The river Finn is known widely for its salmon and trout fishing and permits are available locally for fly-fishing. In Fintown village, you will find the only operational narrow gauge railway in Donegal. It runs for 5 km beside Lough Finn, which is overlooked by Aghla and Scraig mountains. The local village has a shop, pubs, church, school, health centre and library. The towns of Glenties, Dungloe, Ballybofey and Letterkenny are 15 minutes, 15 minutes, 25 minutes and 30 minutes drives respectively. There you will find restaurants, pubs and supermarkets. There are many stunning beaches within a 30 minute drive, offering beautiful walks and a choice of sports such as kayaking, surfing, golf and horse-riding, all of which we can help you to organise.
  • Vi älskade vår första vistelse på Pete och Anna så mycket att vi kom tillbaka! Vi hade också en underbar tid andra gången - vi älskade den lilla stugan på vintern lika mycket som vi gjorde på sommaren [även om vi var tacksamma för den lilla elvärmaren när vi försökte få elden att gå ordentligt på morgonen]. Pete var jättebra om att kommunicera när vi var lite sena, och vi hade en bra liten prat när vi kom dit - vi fick känna oss mycket välkomna. Så allt en fantastisk vistelse - vi rekommenderar detta mycket starkt!

    Sofie2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • En lysande komma undan i en perfekt sug stuga på en mycket pittoresk plats, jag skulle definitivt rekommendera!

    James2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Pete och Anna har ett fantastiskt ställe på en härlig plats. Om du vill fly undan allt är det här platsen att åka till. Detta symboliserar verkligen vad air bnb handlar om, unikt boende med en personlig service. Pete och Anna gick utöver för att hjälpa oss när det behövdes och vi är verkligen glada över att vi stannade hos dem. I en nationalpark med enastående skönhet är det här platsen att vara!

    Maya2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • En välkommen fly från staden till denna absoluta pärla i hjärtat av sydvästra Donegal, vi hade en vacker vistelse i Pete & Anna's home. Stuga med utsikt över svepande kullar, är stugan en pittoresk konverterad ko skjul, komplett med en timmerbrännare; bekväma, mysiga och rena! Pete & Anna är underbara. Efter ett katastrofalt försök att vandra berget Errigal (och en tappa borttappad till leran), rekommenderade Pete Maghera Beach vid Ardara. Det är förmodligen den vackraste stranden i Irland - vi hade en fantastisk dag. Anna rekommenderade också en naturskön resa till Glenveagh, där vi körde genom nationalparken bland bergen - det var spektakulärt! De är ett härligt par och naturliga värdar. Få saker slog avkopplande vid elden med en bok (och lite vin) efter en lång dag utforska. Pete och Anna plats var en fantastisk plats att göra detta. Vi bokar redan ledig tid för att komma tillbaka!

    Ciaran2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Pete & Anna's plats var den perfekta platsen att bo medan du äventyrar Donegal County. Vacker liten stuga och den sötaste värdfamiljen! Definitivt skulle rekommendera.

    Jenna2019-12-04T00:00:00Z
  • perfekt liten romantisk tillflyktsort! Pete och Anna lägger så mycket kärlek i varje liten detalj. Huset har allt du behöver och är omgivet av ett så vackert landskap! Vi älskade särskilt den lilla ugnen !!

    Kathrin2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • En vacker liten öppen planlösning. Vi använde köket för att göra middag och bosätta sig på natten med ett glas eller två. Inga närliggande butiker, så se till att ta med dig mat och dryck under förberedelse. En underbar plats att koppla av, koppla och skratta.

    Megan2019-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • Denna plats är en sann dröm, speciellt om du letar efter något speciellt. Petes tips för det dagliga programmet var geniala och kvällarna framför ugnen var riktigt mysiga. Den är utrustad med allt du behöver. Vi har haft vår tid i Donegal mycket och kan mycket rekommendera detta boende!

    Cozy log cabin with standard size double bed (140cm), small kitchenette (no oven or microwave) and toilet/shower room. Located on a large tranquil piece of land with private studios, public yoga studios and two residential buildings. While busy with people working, you will be undisturbed. Please note that there is no T.V. and no space to make up another bed.
    Blackrock is a small village, but has all the basic amenities as well as some lovely cafes and restaurants. It is situated on the coast and when the tide is out you can walk in either direction. If you jog, the strand is also where you will see a lot of people jogging. The next village Monkstown is also lovely with more cafes and restaurants. The town following Monkstown is Dun Laoghaire where there is a cinema a few shopping centres and also a pier which is lovely to walk especially on a summer evening. Town is only 10 to 15 minutes away by public transport. You can also take the train southwards to Killiney where you can walk along a lovely stone beach or to Dalkey, a lovely village and a short walk from Killiney Hill where you can get a full view of Dublin.

    The listing is a lovely, modern, log cabin in a secluded spot located in the back garden of a fine suburban house in south Dublin. Free on street parking is available immediately outside the main residence. The listing is suitable for couples or solo travellers. There are no particularly strict house rules; all we ask is that you respect the property just as you'd like your own home to be respected. There is one cat in residence at the property.
    Lilac Cottage is a self contained, double bedroom, shower room, full working kitchen and living area with TV/DVD.
    Kimmage is a lovely, settled neighbourhood. Several good restaurants are within walking distance as are shops, pubs, parks, and a gym, yoga and pilates. It also has an excellent bus service which will bring you into the city centre in around 20 minutes.
  • Detta är den perfekta lilla undanvägen! Du får mycket avskildhet och platsen är perfekt för allt du vill se i Dublin! Kabinen är sååå trevlig att du glömmer att du är i en storstad. Du är 15 minuter från centrum av Dublin och det finns 2 perfekta busshållplatser om du inte har en hyra. Gästfriheten är perfekt och Fidelma är snabb att hjälpa! Jag skulle absolut bo med Fidelma igen!

    Sarah2019-11-06T00:00:00Z
  • Det här var min syster & jag skulle först sluta i Irland. Vi kunde inte ha valt en bättre plats att börja. Undangömt i en trädgård i ett ganska stadsdel var det en perfekt tillflyktsort från liv och rörelse i centrala Dublin. Skulle stanna här igen i hjärtslag när vi kommer tillbaka till Irland.

    Brittney2019-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • Tack så mycket Fidelma för den absolut perfekta platsen att bo !! Vacker stuga med allt du behöver för en perfekt semester! Ta Fidelmas råd om att äta, hon kommer inte att styra dig i fel riktning !! Jag kan inte uttrycka hur mycket vi har haft vår vistelse !!

  • Jag kan inte säga tillräckligt bra saker om min vistelse och erfarenhet. Från början var kommunikationen varm och ultraljud. Lägenheten var ren och fylld med allt du kan behöva, det kändes verkligen som att komma hem efter långa dagar med sightseeing. Platsen är idealisk, på gångavstånd från allt på min lista över saker att göra, se och äta. Micheál hälsade oss tidigt och med ett varmt välkomnande uppförande och är en mängd kunskap, också extremt lyhörd när jag hade ett WiFi-problem. Tyvärr hade jag inte chansen att träffa Maylene men hon välkomnade oss också och det var en välsmakande överraskning. Jag skulle rekommendera denna apt och dessa fantastiska värdar för alla som vill besöka Dublin och vara så behagliga som man kan vara hemifrån!

  • Lägenheten var exakt densamma som på bilderna. Platsen kunde inte vara bättre, gångavstånd till allt du behöver. Micheal var väldigt snäll och hjälpte oss med allt vi bad och behövde. Ser fram emot att bo igen i Micheals lägenhet.

    Gaby2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • Micheals plats ligger på ett fantastiskt centralt läge i Dublin inom gångavstånd från allt. Det finns allt du behöver i lägenheten, och Micheál svarar snabbt på eventuella frågor. Wendy och Peter Australien

  • Lägenheten är som annonserad. Det var rent, bra wif-fi, och ligger i ett centralt / säkert område i Dublin för att gå nästan överallt. Jag rekommenderar starkt apt, liksom crepe restaurangen direkt nedan för frukost.

  • Vi hade ett bra nytt år i Dublin på grund av den exceptionella lägenheten i lägenheten i Temple Bar. Bilderna beskriver lägenheten mycket bra. Balkongen mycket trevligt. All nödvändig utrustning var i lägenheten och vi hälsades av Mikaels fru som var väldigt snäll och berättade för oss 2-3 saker att göra i Dublin. Lite högljudd ibland på natten, men samtidigt är det i stadens centrum. Vi rekommenderar utan tvekan.

    Ludo2019-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Micheáls lägenhet var den perfekta platsen för att utforska allt Dublin har att erbjuda. Mycket nära till alla stora attraktioner, restauranger, barer och nattliv. Det är mycket säkert och säkert och utrustat med allt du kan behöva. Vi hade tyvärr en flygavbokning & anlände 12 timmar sent men det var inget problem för Micheál att träffa oss mitt på natten som vi verkligen uppskattade. Micheál är en mängd kunskap och en stor värd, tack och hälsningar för en bra vistelse.

  • En sådan underbar vistelse, chalet är underbara, härliga lilla handen som ljus och en flaska vin i kylskåp. Hottub var underbara och platsen var fab. Hottuben fungerade inte korrekt på vår andra natt men de fixade det och som en gest gav oss en annan flaska vin! Brekkie kom i en härlig korg med några blommor, bara härlig. Skulle inte tveka att rekommendera! De vänliga ungarna var en bonus !!!

    Tracy2018-05-20T00:00:00Z
  • Underbart. Allt du kan önska i en b & b. Anyas gästfrihet var så underbar och välkomnande. Vi slutade vår 2 veckan resa i Irland här. Det var perfekt. Mysigt. Omtänksamt berör överallt. Frukost sjönk vid vår dörr. Min enda fråga är att vi inte boka det för flera dagar !!! Jag önskar att vi kunde stannat dubbelt så länge. Charmig och underbar.

    Craig2018-05-16T00:00:00Z

  • Denna plats är AMAZING !! Vi kunde bara stanna en natt men Richard såg till att vi var alla. Det är den mest unika platsen jag någonsin har stannat och hade fantastisk utsikt över staden. En 15 min promenad. Denna plats är en av ett slag och önskar att vi kunde stannat längre. Vi kommer tillbaka!

    Meghan2019-05-24T00:00:00Z
  • Allt om denna plats är bara WOW. Alla andra recensioner har ganska sagt sagt det. Tveka inte, boka denna Airbnb och njut av staden ot Cork. Richard och hans fru var så vänliga och trevliga. Den stora mängden tanke och passion som har gått in i tranquilitree gör det verkligen en upplevelse i sig själv. Notera - bäst att packa ljus eller ryggsäck det. Den kullen upp till deras plats är inget skämt!

    Erin2019-05-21T00:00:00Z

    It is a quiet culdesac. Close to a good bus service to the city. There is pubs and takeaways plus a cafe and deli near by
  • Om du åker till Dublin är Seans plats ett måste! Det är precis utanför stadens centrum. Jag tog bussen inom 20 minuter. Så det var trevligt att vara precis utanför galenskapen. Och Sean var strålande att ge mig vägbeskrivning på busslinjer. Seans plats är härlig & hon bryr sig verkligen om sina gäster. Jag fick mig att känna mig som hemma. Sovrummet var vackert och mysigt och det var inget bättre än att se te och kaffe där för dig när jag kom. (Särskilt efter en lång försenad flygning!) Sean är verkligen en underbar dam och jag skulle gärna bo med henne igen när jag återvänder till Dublin.

    Derek2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • Tyst tyst tyst. En mild oas i galskapen i Dubland. Rekommendera starkt för en natt, en vecka eller längre. En bra bas att se huvudstaden. gott om bussar och sådant i närheten. Pips matställe för tillagad frukost ett måste, träffa de riktiga dublinersna. Även om du har en bil får du en dag eller veckas pass för kombinerade Luas, Dart, buss etc. mycket att se och göra, fantastiskt nattliv i stan. Sean, en härlig dam som gillar att chatta och få dig att känna dig som hemma, kan inte göra tillräckligt för att hjälpa, en pärla bland Airbnb-folk.

    Bill2020-01-23T00:00:00Z

  • Vi älskade vår vistelse här. Hotellet är fantastisk från utsidan och har en hemlighet för det inuti. Personalen och ledningen driver det på ett mycket gemensamt sätt med gratis scones och Prosecco som hjälper till att samla gästerna i ett utrymme och skapa en fantastisk atmosfär. De tog en bild av oss på middagen en natt och skrev ut den som en gratis present. Små saker som det gör stor skillnad och vi älskade den vibe de försöker skapa i sitt utrymme. Platsen är idealisk om du försöker röra dig runt olika delar av Connemara. Det enda lilla klagomålet jag hade är den dusch vi hade var inte kraftfull alls och vi var tvungna att använda badslangen som var obekväm

    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.
  • Vi hade en härlig tid. Det var trevligt att ha vårt eget utrymme och att kunna laga en måltid. Elden gjorde natten, det var varmt och mysigt. Tina var väldigt omtänksam och rolig!

    Tessa2019-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • Davids hem är en perfekt tillflyktsort. Vi var tråkiga att bara vara där en natt eftersom egenskapen och det omgivande området hade mycket att utforska! David är en underbar värd, som ger massor av information om det omgivande området och platser för att se till att vi stannade vid längs vår resa.

    Brittany2019-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • David och Tina har satt ihop en vacker reträtt precis utanför Killybegs. Fastigheten är ren och har alla bekvämligheter för en vistelse i flera dagar. Många bra tips för vad man ska göra och se, inklusive många tips som inte finns i de vanliga turistguiderna! Fastigheten är vacker och sträcker sig från stugan hela vägen till viken med tillgång till stranden bara några minuters promenad. Utlandet på fastigheten gör fantastiska bilder! David och Tina är väldigt nådiga och underbara att bo med. Vi kommer att hålla kontakten med dem och bokar förmodligen fastigheten till vårt nästa stopp i Donegal-området.

    Ted2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • Om du letar efter en charmig lägenhet med självhushåll vid havet, leta inte längre än David och Tinas plats. Uthyrningen var mysig och välutrustad! Vi gillade att titta på DVD-skivor vid elden och gå till den privata stranden. Det var en hytt på 7 € från centrum av Killibegs. Vi rekommenderar den här egenskapen!

    Amy2019-09-08T00:00:00Z

  • Vi hade en härlig tid på Tina och Davids hus - det var ljust, snyggt inredda och öppen spis skapade en särskilt mysig atmosfär. Vi var främst ute men hade några härliga chattar med Tina, och våra värdar var också snabba att svara via privat meddelande! WiFi- och telefonsignalen kan vara lite ojämn, så du kanske vill planera i förväg om du behöver den för jobbet (eller helt enkelt lämna ditt arbete hemma, vilket är det mycket bättre alternativet :)).

    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.

  • Om du letar efter någonstans att slappna av, för att komma bort från allt, är det här stället! Utanför den misshandlade banan men lätt att hitta och omgiven av fantastiska landskap. Platsen själv är snygg och mysig och fylld med fantastiska hemlagade och hem odlade råvaror!

  • Irma's Cuckoo Cabin var en vacker reträtt efter några veckors resa. Inbäddat i skogen var den eleganta enrumshyttan helt pittoreska och funktionella. Det har en lugn atmosfär, det är tyst och avkopplande, och Irma tog med ägg och färskt bröd till våra frukostar. Det finns också många trevliga vandringar runt området. Definitivt rekommendera. Obs: du behöver en bil för att komma till denna plats (eller taxi).

    Victoria Drummond Tower was built as a Folly Tower in the victorian period in 1858 by Victor Drummond Delap as part of Monasterboice House & Demesne. The tower is regarded as a folly tower built in remembrance of his late mother Victoria Drummond Delap. Recently restored into a small habitable dwelling and is now available for rental for selected months of the year. A very unique and enjoyable place to stay with a vast range of local & historical amenities at your disposal.
    Drummond Tower comprises of 4no. floors including a top roof level which guests can enjoy extensive views of the surrounding countryside. The ground floor comprises of a kitchen area with cooking and washing facilities. On the first floor there is a comfortable living room with adequate space to relax and watch TV or read books form the extensive book collection. There are 2no. couches with 1no. being a comfortable double sofa bed. The second floor bedroom is the last of the internal floors which comprises of a queen sized bed with en-suite, shower and washing facilities. One of the great advantages is waking up in the mornings and looking out over the tree tops and the immediate countryside. The top floor level is the external castellated roof terrace. There is 360 degree views of the area and space to enjoy the fine weather. The roof terrace is illuminated so one can access the area during at night to look at the stars
    Drummond Tower is situated in the countryside on the Boyne Valley Drive - R168. 5 mins from Monasterboice Round Tower & Melifont Abbey. Newgrange, Dowth, Oldbridge (Battle of the Boyne) and Slane / Collon Village is within 15mins drive. Drogheda is located nearby with shopping, Restaurants and Bars. We would recommend Monasterboice Inn (5 mins drive) with selection of fine food & beverages. Also check out "No. Three" in the local Village of Collon which would be approx 3 miles or visit the lovely village of Slane and have a pint on Boyles Pub

    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.
  • Vilken härlig stuga ligger på den irländska landsbygden! Den hade allt vi behövde och var en fantastisk start på vårt äventyr i detta vackra land! Sanchia är en stor värd och välkomnade oss med bra information om de omgivande områdena. Skulle helt stanna här igen !! En skiva av himlen!

    Elizabeth2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • Detta är en härlig stuga: ren, härlig inredning och möbler, användbara faciliteter, utmärkt läge, fin utsikt! Sanchia svarade snabbt på mina meddelanden. Bra vistelse, kommer att försöka återvända en dag!

    Ali2019-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • Sanchia var underbart. Om vi kommer tillbaka till Irland kommer vi definitivt att boka hennes stuga igen. Jag kan inte säga tillräckligt bra saker om henne och hennes hem.

    Tiffany2019-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • Underbart landskapsläge om du vill försvinna till back-road territorium! Mycket privat, utmärkt utsikt, fantastiska köksfaciliteter!

    Carol2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Ingenting annat än bra saker att säga om vår vistelse på Granary stugan! Sanchia var absolut den mest älskvärda värden - hon hjälpte oss med information om tåg och buss innan hon till och med anlände till Irland. Hon var så snäll och välkomnade oss med öppna armar. Stugan själv var så rymlig och mysig. Vi var bara två men en familj på 4-5 kunde lätt bo här bekvämt. Vyerna från den bakre verandan var otrolig (även efter morgondimman rullade in). Stugan gav oss en riktig känsla av den irländska landsbygden, och jag skulle rekommendera denna vistelse till alla min familj och vänner !!

    Katie2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • Vi stannade på en annan AirBnB varje kväll på vår veckas resa till Irland, och överlägset är denna plats / vår absoluta favorit. Först av allt, Sanchia var en docka, och var inte bara söt och hjälpsam, hon var så vänlig som du kunde få - vi pratade med henne i 30 minuter på morgonen även om vi borde ha checkats ut. Platsen själv var absolut magisk. Det var så pittoreska och avkopplande, hela stämningen på platsen var bara perfekt. Vi hade en storm natten vi stannade där och det var så romantiskt och sött att bara ligga på soffan med min man, titta på en film med elden som knarkade bredvid oss och lyssna på vinden tjutande. Vi kyssade bara där tills vi somnade och det är så trevligt att ha stunder så perfekta som att känna sig kopplade. Denna plats fick oss att känna oss "hemma" samtidigt som vi gav oss en chans att också känna att vi befann oss i ett sagans drömmar. Älskade denna plats! Nästa gång vi åker till Irland vill jag spendera mer tid här för säkerhet! Jag rekommenderar starkt om du vill ha en härlig, avkopplande, bekväm, romantisk reträtt.

    Victoria2019-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • Denna plats är perfekt! Värden är mycket vänliga och hjälpsamma och hade hem bakade scones redo för oss vid ankomst. När vi anlände hade vi planerat att gå ut på middag men slutade inte att lämna denna lugna stuga så vi åt de äggäggarna som värden hade tillhandahållit, bästa måltiden på vår resa hittills. Vackra jordbruksmarker och vänliga hundar. Precis rätt. Vår enda ånger är att inte stanna en natt för att njuta av området. Vi skulle komma igen

    Donna2019-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • Om du drömmer om att vakna upp i ett sagolandskap med läckra scones. Och om det regnar ute på kvällen för att göra en gosig eld i spisen, är denna vackra stuga den perfekta platsen för dig. Du kommer omedelbart att känna dig som hemma eftersom Sanchia är en så kärleksfull hostess. Vi kände oss väldigt bekväma och saknar det redan nu. Ett litet paradis :)

  • En otrolig atmosfär i slottet. Så varm och välkomnande. Rummet är litet men en oerhört bekväm säng och glad att se att det fanns ett bad. En mycket, mycket koslig vistelse

    Vicky2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Rummet är litet men härligt och mycket smakfullt. Dusch var enorm och exakt vad jag ville ha. Missa inte en möjlighet att bo i detta förtrollande slott.

    Peter2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Detta var ett extremt trevligt hotell med exklusiva möbler och finish. Detta rum är ett av de minsta rummen under de trevligare rummen men gör det fortfarande möjligt för gästerna att utforska ett vackert slott och uppleva bekvämligheterna på en budget!

    Chris2019-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • Utmärkt värde för vad du betalar! Rummet är ganska litet men det beskrivs exakt i rumets Airbnb-beskrivning. Härlig vistelse totalt sett!

    Sarah2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Vi älskade det på Abbeyglenn. Platsen är nära staden och många platser, inklusive en promenad till fots till Donegal Castle. Maten var särskilt fantastisk, och hotellets anställda var mycket personliga. Vi skulle definitivt stanna igen.

    Jerilynn2019-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • Ja, du kan och borde stanna i ett slott! Den här är till dig! Och när du gör det, dra fördel av allt. Eftermiddagste och scones. Gratis champagne och historia-prat. Gratis frukost. Musik i en mysig pub med levande ljus kl. 22. Prova snooker. Kolla in de historiska bilderna. Möt papegojan. Promenera marken. Gå till stan. Kör Sky Road. Gör allt. Var bara försiktig med en sak: middag, även om den är vacker, är dyr. Vi trodde att det var allomfattande med ett pris, men det finns verkligen extra kostnader för aptitretare, desserter och serviceavgift. Var bara försiktig om du har en budget.

    Patty2019-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • Slottet är mycket vackert, rummet är cite och tjänsterna är perfekta. Tack

    Hélène2019-05-03T00:00:00Z
  • Denna plats var fantastisk. Definitivt en av de bästa airbnb listorna kan du stanna på period. När jag gick in blev jag gjord för att känna mig avslappnad. Jag skulle definitivt stanna här igen. Mina vänner och jag kom kollektivt överens om att vi borde ha bokat en andra natt på grund av hur fantastisk denna plats var. Rekommenderas starkt.

    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...
  • Häftigt ställe!!! Mycket ren, mycket mysig, bra värdar (!) Och supersöta djur. Allt inne i stugan var som beskrivits. De har till och med en mikrovågsugn kokbok som är mycket praktiskt. Ekotoilet luktar inte alls. Mycket intressanta böcker :) De gav oss mycket bra tips och rekommendationer för platser att besöka. Det enda sorgliga är att vi inte kunde stanna längre! Tydlig 5-stjärnig rekommendation !!

    Juliane2019-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • Rekommenderas starkt. Mysigt, spännande landskap, stencirklar, pittoreska platser. Det är bäst att stanna i flera dagar.

    Veit2019-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastisk natt i det lilla paradiset långt från allt, vilken lycka! Stugan är mycket bekväm och välutrustad, det är en riktig kokong. Tillgången med Tonys indikation var ganska uppenbar, men faktiskt kommer den före natten eftersom den verkligen är förlorad! Vi gillade verkligen att upptäcka Beara-halvön som är mycket vild och har många överraskningar! Vi rekommenderar utan tvekan !!

    Helene2019-07-15T00:00:00Z
  • Tonys eko-stuga var den perfekta platsen för lugn och utsikt när vi utforskade området. Det hade alla bekvämligheter som vi behövde. Vi skulle definitivt besöka igen!

    Paul2019-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • Helt enkelt underbart! På vår tur genom Irland låter vi vår själ koppla av i Ecochalet i tre dagar. Landskapet är vackert och det finns mycket att upptäcka i området. Med beskrivningen har Tony skickat oss tidigare, vi har tyckt att boendet är bra. Du har allt du behöver och mer. En absolut rekommendation om du vill njuta av lugnet och naturen!

    Johannes2019-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • Jag kan inte beskriva hur helt fantastiskt och vackert Tonys plats är. Rätt vid havet och det var så hemtrevligt med fler böcker än jag kan namnge! Det måste vara en av de finaste vackraste platserna jag någonsin har stannat kvar. Vaknade till en tupp och hälsade varje gång av vackra hästar med lukten av havet där. Klassiska Irland, och det bästa stället att varva ner och gå en promenad. Rekommendera starkt Causkeys Bar precis längs vägen. Hela platsen var så bild-esc att jag kunde ha stannat där i veckor. Kommer definitivt tillbaka en dag.

    Augustine2019-07-02T00:00:00Z
  • Liten stuga vackert dekorerad mycket varm på en magisk plats. Tony är en diskret och vänlig värd. Tveka inte en sekund. Underbara minnen garanterat!

    Our cabin is warm and cosy. Enjoy the space, help yourself to veg from the garden, feed the farm animals, collect the eggs and explore all our area has to offer
    We are in the heart of the countryside but within walking distance of the town. The cabin is accessed via a raised walkway over the vegetable garden and nestled neatly under mature beech trees. The cabin is on our small farm which you are free to explore, experience and enjoy. The area is a slightly off the beaten track hidden gem. You could use your time here to explore Lough Key Forest Park, the town of Boyle, Boyle Abbey, King House and Drummanone Dolmen. You could visit the majestic Carrowkeel passage tombs and delve into the caves of Keash. Try walking around some of the lesser known lakes and woodlands e.g. Clontykilla woods and cycling a myriad of country lanes. See if you can catch some fish on the nearby Boyle river or Lough Gara. Spend your evenings snuggled in the cabin with some local literature or head to Boyle for something to eat and a few pints. For those wanting very lively nightlife Carrick on Shannon is 12 km away
    This is an area with hidden gems waiting to be discovered. We love our interactions with the animals, the peaceful lakes, rivers and hills and our friends and neighbours. A quiet pint in town with a good meal and chat is a simple pleasure. A rich historical tapestry from passage tombs to hidden abbeys to grand mansions continues to stimulate.
  • Hideaway är en stor och välutrustad pod. Det har alla bekvämligheter som beskrivs i listan, så att du kan vara självförsörjande i nästan allt. Vi stannade på vintern med våra 2 små barn (23 månader och 7 månader). Det var mysigt och perfekt för vår vistelse på 1 natt. Om du är ett par kan du gärna spendera mycket längre här, som en bas för att utforska området. John var mycket välkomnande och mycket tillmötesgående när han visade barnen nötkreatur, åsnor, höns och ankor. Han lämnade även oss nybakade scones till frukost (2 vuxna storlek och 2 baby storlek). Johns välkomst och gästfrihet var verkligen entusiastisk och jag kan inte rekommendera att stanna här tillräckligt högt.

    Tom2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Mycket bekväm vistelse i ett härligt lugnt läge. Gillade verkligen denna pod. Det bästa vi har hållit i hittills med allt du behöver. Gott om plats för 2 vuxna och vår dalmatiner. Kan inte vänta med att komma tillbaka för att utforska mer!

    Emma2019-12-15T00:00:00Z

    Ed2019-10-31T00:00:00Z

    Back to nature in this tranquil little wooden building, beautiful antique windows reveal a gentle vista of rolling hills and open skies. It's Ireland's answer to glamping, (with a solid roof over your head ;) ) yet the feeling of being out in nature.
    This is a glamping experience, it is a warm, dry, insulated wooden cabin with a comfortable bed and lovely views. Be prepared to wander through the garden to kitchen and w.c. Umbrella and torch provided. Wifi available in the kitchen cabin, not in the Cosy Cabin itself. Experience the exquisite night-time quiet of the countryside, awaken to the soothing cooing of woodpigeons and the country sounds of rooster 'Jenkins' and his flock of happy hens. Lounge in the garden as Red Kites soar overhead and, in season, snack on organic produce, especially our sweet organic grapes from the polytunnel. Look up at the milkyway sketched across the night sky and inhale sweet clean air. The cabin accommodates 2 people, it has its own solar power supply, its south-east facing big windows provide beautiful views of the surroundings. The bed is a comfortable double and there's a fold out table and chairs and an outdoor picnic table. BREAKFAST: A basket of breakfast goodies will be provided for you to dine at your leisure. A 30 meter stroll through the garden brings you to the kitchen and a wc/shower room which are housed in a separate cabin. You are welcome to cook in the communal kitchen and make teas and coffee (provided) whenever you please. The kitchen has a small fridge, two hot plates and pots and pans. You'll be sharing the kitchen with other guests, you also have the option to eat in your cabin or at your private picnic table. We have a garden Chimenea and you are welcome to light a fire there. But we ask you to bring your own fuel, a bag of logs or bale of briquettes and fire-lighters.
    "There is not in this wide world a valley so sweet" Stroll from the house to the beautiful Avondale Arboretum with the Avonmore river flowing down from the Wicklow National Park to the Meeting-of-the-Waters made famous by Thomas Moore's song. A twenty minute drive will bring you to the golden sands of Brittas bay or the stunning beauty of Glendalough. Rathdrum nestles in the heart of the Wicklow Mountains and offers direct access to all the beauty "The Garden of Ireland" has to offer. The Wicklow Way & Lugnaquilla mountain are some of the nearby hiking highlights. The Clara Lara Funpark and Greenane Maze and Farm Museum are great for kids. And not to forget the beautiful Avondale Forest Park just a 15min walk from your cabin, the riverwalk there is simply stunning. Have a look at our other listing so you can book for a whole family.
  • Fiona är en super trevlig värdinna. På avresedagen förberedde hon frukost för mig tidigare - som dagarna innan var det helt underbart och gott. Den mysiga stugan är så mysig och utsikten över trädgården. Om du letar efter lugn och avkoppling är det här. Rekommenderas varmt! :)

    Kathi2019-04-16T00:00:00Z
  • Mycket vacker och orginial plats att sova! Ingen tvekan, vi är på landsbygden i Irland. Lite kyligt på vintern men det finns värmare i varje rum (viktigt att anmäla det till motvilliga). Mycket välkommen, diskret värdar men tillgängliga. Jag rekommenderar!

    Sarah2019-04-12T00:00:00Z
  • Edwin och Fionas stuga var en mycket speciell och avkopplande vistelse. Utrymmet var vackert och rent, och hade all känsla av att vara utomhus och alla moderna bekvämligheter vi brukar tycka om ljus, värme, wifi och en varm dusch. De har genomtänkt inrättat inomhus- och utomhusutrymmen för en vacker upplevelse. Frukost var läcker, och det omgivande området var ett nöje att utforska. Rekommenderas starkt!

    Cassie2019-04-11T00:00:00Z
  • Vi hade en mycket bra vistelse på Edwin och Fiona. En atypisk inställning och perfekt att koppla av i mitten av naturen. Jag rekommenderar starkt!

    Théo2019-04-08T00:00:00Z
  • Stugan är för äkta äventyrliga och utlänningar! Vi ville ha en semester full av äventyr och vi hittade det .. Huset har bara en dubbelsäng och liten men mysig .. Riktigt trevligt! Och med speciella detaljer! Lite obekväma måste gå på toaletten som ligger 30 meter från stugan, som rapporterats av tillkännagivandet; men nått det på natten med ficklampan har sin charm! Köket är fyllt med allt, frukosten är riklig och komplett .. Bara lite för kallt. Rådgivning till alla som vill tillbringa en semester i kontakt med naturen ..

    Erica2019-04-06T00:00:00Z
  • Min son älskade att titta på kycklingarna! Jag är så glad att vi stannade här, utanför Dublin eftersom det var så tyst. Vi satt på sängen och tittade på de stora fönstren och spelade ett brädspel tills solen gick ner. Sängen var mycket bekväm och vi väckte på morgonen av att sjunga fåglar. Och den färska maten att göra frukost såg så perfekt och testad så smaklig.

    Summer2019-04-04T00:00:00Z
  • Detta är en utmärkt plats för ett par att spendera en romantisk semester! Mysigt och tyst, Edwin var super trevlig och fick oss att känna oss bekväma och hemma. Vi hade inte nöjet att träffa Fiona, men vi är säkra på att hon också är super snygg!

    Hugo2018-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Vilken otrolig vistelse! Ännu bättre än annonseras i alla avseenden var stugan väldigt mysig och det var omtänksamt vid varje tur. En läcker frukost väntade på oss på morgonen, och Edwin var till hjälp med att ge lokala rekommendationer. Fiona körde också generöst oss till tågstationen på morgonen. Jag kan verkligen inte rekommendera det nog! Bara vet att det är ganska avlägset, vilket är exakt det vi letade efter. Tack!

    Beautifully restored Pre-Famine cottage. Listed on The Financial Times as a tranquil escape from the bustle of modern life. Rural setting surrounded by lacy stone walls, secluded gardens, and still on the outskirts of the cultural city of Galway.
    Riding stables across the road and 9 hole golf course and driving range 1/2 mile away
  • Denna plats är för alla som vill ha en verklig irländsk upplevelse av att gå tillbaka i tiden. Magin med bränder på kvällen under ett halmtak är till skillnad från andra!

  • Du kanske saknar WIFI, men bara för lite. Tänd elden, öppna en flaska vin och duva i din favoritbok.

  • Denna plats är magisk, och jag önskar att jag hade stannat längre än två nätter. Från det färska bakade brödet och godbitarna i friggen till den bollande bäcken precis utanför den främre nederländska dörren, kunde min erfarenhet inte ha varit bättre! Torvbrännande spisen var så tröstande, och jag tänkte inte ens klättra uppför trappan till loftet för sänggåendet. Dusch hade bra tryck och varmt vatten, och värmaren ovanför badrumsdörren var glasyren på kakan. Mousserande rent, privat och känslan av att vara i en saga. Bara en kort bilresa utanför staden så att du får en smak av landskapet. Jag kunde inte ha bett om en bättre upplevelse. Verkligen en av mina favoritupplevelser på Airbnb genom tiderna!

  • Vi hade en fantastisk vistelse på stugan! Det är bortom charmig och det är en upplevelse vi aldrig kommer att glömma. Från det läckra hemlagade brödet, till den öppna spisen och trädgårdsområdet, var det precis det vi letade efter i vår Irlands erfarenhet. Ren, bekväm, mysig och tyst. Tack Romain!

  • Stugan var så härlig! Det känns som om du är ute på landsbygden och hundratals år tidigare - förutom att du är bekvämt precis utanför Galway och har idag alla varelser. Vi älskade särskilt eldstaden!

  • Älskade min vistelse i denna söta stuga! Det var så avslappnande att sitta vid elden och höra bäcken utanför, och jag fick en stor sömn på övervåningen! Skulle def stanna här igen!

  • Fantastisk autentisk stuga i fridfulla omgivningar. Förutom ett vänligt välkomnande av värdarna behandlades vi också med en välsmakande hem bakad limpa irländskt bröd. Vi njöt särskilt av kvällar vid öppen eld och morgnar som smuttar kaffe i den avskilda trädgården och lyssnade på den surrande strömmen. Högt rekommenderad!

  • Den mest otroliga stuga vistelse! Foton gör det inte rättvisa. Det är så pittoreskt och vackert och de små detaljerna är vackra. Ägg, mjölk och färskt bröd tillhandahålls är vackra och spisen är gudomlig !!! Mycket kort körde till Galway och värt lugn och ro samt utomhusgrönska!

    Amazingly located apartment in the quiet quarter of Temple Bar a few mins walk from Trinity College, Dublin Castle, City Hall, Grafton Street, St Patricks and Christchurch Cathedrals.
    Always something to do or see
  • Jag kan inte lägga mycket till de goda saker som andra redan har sagt i sina recensioner. Som någon som besöker Dublin varje år tycker jag att platsen är fantastisk, mycket nära liv och rörelse utan besväret att vara direkt i det, komplexet lägenheten ligger i är trevligt och säkert och lägenheten i sig är ren, bekväm och mysig. Värdarna är extremt snabba på att svara och mycket tillmötesgående, vi kunde inte ha varit lyckligare med vår vistelse.

  • En vänlig, lugn och bekväm lägenhet i hjärtat av tempelbaren! Vi hade en fantastisk tid!

    Birgit2019-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • Bra läge, mycket bekvämt

    Elisabeth2019-06-27T00:00:00Z
  • Lägenheten överensstämmer med beskrivningen, mycket välplacerad för att besöka Dublin och njuta av dess nattliv. Eftersom den ligger på kanten av Temple Bar är området ganska tyst (även under St Patrick's Day). Micheál är en vänlig värd som har gett oss många tips för vår vistelse, med bra adresser för en drink eller middag.

  • Jag hade en perfekt vistelse. Allt var vad jag förväntade mig och platsen är perfekt för alla. Dess nära höftdelen av staden (tempelbaren) och en 15 minuters promenad från nästan allt, inklusive alla former av kollektivtrafik! Rekommenderas till någon som kommer till Dublin för en dag eller en månad!

  • Lägenheten ligger i ett idealiskt läge om du vill vara nära Temple Bar. Vi stannade över nyår för 3 nätter och på en upptagen tid hittade det inte bullriga alls. Det sov bekvämt 4 och bäddsoffan i vardagsrummet var faktiskt verkligen comfy. Michael & hans fru var stor med kommunikation & platsen var ren vid ankomst med allt vi behövde för att njuta av vår vistelse. Skulle definitivt rekommendera !!

  • Wow, vad en fantastisk plats! Dag efter dag fortsatte vi att kommentera varandra ständigt att vi hade hamnat i en helt perfekt plats för att utforska Dublin. Det var fantastiskt att vara 5-15 minuter till var som helst vi ville komma i stan: Grafton Street, Ha'penny Bridge, Trinity College, St Stephen's Green, Temple Bar, etc. Airlink Shuttle var rätt upp på gatan vilket innebar att Det var billigt och lätt att komma till / från flygplatsen. Micheál tillhandahöll stegvisa riktningar med bilder för att se till att vi hittade oss till lägenheten och kommunicerade under hela processen så att de kunde träffas när vi kom dit. Utrymmet i sig var perfekt för oss som ett par som reser tillsammans. Stort vardagsrum / matsal / kök och ett rymligt sovrum för oss att dela. Badrummet innehöll en djup soaker badkar som var DELIGHTFUL efter en kylig dag turné till Giant's Causeway! Jag rekommenderar starkt denna plats till alla som besöker Dublin. Vi planerar redan att boka med Micheál igen nästa gång vi är där, vilket vi hoppas kommer snart!
