Come stay in one of Dublin's unique Georgian apartments, a perfect oval room, situated on Mountjoy Square, in the heart of Dublin's North Georgian core, and just minutes from O'Connell Street. This large studio apartment is on the ground floor of a beautiful redbrick townhouse, built in 1792. Both house and apartment retain all their original features, combined with modern comforts. The apartment has a fantastic 10ft window and overlooks a quiet side street, with an oblique view of the park.

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

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

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

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

  • Marvelous! Ik vond het geweldig.

  • Ik was gecharmeerd van de mooie Georgische flat van Karin toen ik de foto's online zag en het echte werk overtrof zeker mijn verwachtingen! Zij is de volleerde gastheer die aan alles heeft gedacht. Een gevulde keuken, een badkamer gevuld met toiletartikelen, prachtige boeken en dvd's, een open haard (we hebben er geen gebruik van gemaakt), enorm veel gidsen en kaarten naast haar eigen uitstekende suggesties ... Ik zou door kunnen gaan. De straat was 's nachts volkomen stil en een korte wandeling van 15 minuten naar de rivier de Liffey. Karin zelf begroette ons hartelijk. Ik kan me geen betere Air BNB-ervaring voorstellen en ik kan niet wachten om naar Dublin te gaan en weer bij Karin te blijven!

  • Dit is een charmant huis in een groot deel van Dublin. Zo gemakkelijk om de stad te bereiken in de overvloedige taxi's. Het was zo leuk om thuis te komen in dit charmante appartement na een volledige dag bezichtigen!

  • Je kunt een fijne Georgische kamer verwachten, die slim is aangepast om badkamer en keuken te bevatten zonder deze te beschadigen. Uw gastvrouw is vriendelijk en zeer goed geïnformeerd. Je bevindt je in het hart van Dublin, ideaal gelegen om de stad te verkennen.

    Nicholas2019-05-15T00:00:00Z
  • Wat een speciale plek om te verblijven. We hielden van het Georgische huis met zijn originele kenmerken en geweldige locatie. Genoten ook van het voedsel dat voor ontbijt werd verlaten. We hebben een heerlijk weekend gehad in Dublin. George!

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..
  • Zoek niet verder!!! Karin's appartement heeft alles wat je ooit zou willen en MEER! Bij binnenkomst voel je je thuis na een lange reis. Gastvrij, charmant en absoluut verrukkelijk, het was eerlijk gezegd moeilijk om de stad te verkennen, want het enige dat ik wilde doen was hier blijven en ontspannen voor het vuur. Karin had eieren, boter, mangosap, jam, vers fruit, thee en koffie in de keuken staan klaar voor het ontbijt en een mand vol hout om vuur te maken. De locatie was perfect. Het was nog steeds in het stadscentrum, maar lag op een rustig blok verwijderd van het lawaai. Ik heb nooit een taxi genomen en geprofiteerd van de fantastische locatie van het appartement, die over Dublin 1 en 2 liep. Karin had ook een lange lijst met aanbevelingen en suggesties op het gebied van lokale restaurants, supermarkten en belangen in de buurt, wat erg behulpzaam was. Ik kan dit appartement niet meer aanbevelen en kijk ernaar uit om dit opnieuw te huren tijdens mijn volgende reis naar Dublin!

  • Een echt pareltje! Op een comfortabele afstand van het centrum van Dublin is dit 1840 juweeltje van een gebouw, met een uitstekend appartement. Alles was perfect, van de aandacht van de gastheer tot in elk detail, tot de open haard en het ongelooflijke hoogslaper.

    Dirk2019-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • Een mooie gezellige ruimte. Karin is een zeer vriendelijke en behulpzame gastheer! :)

    Chrissy2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • Geweldige plek om te verblijven! Karin heeft aan alles gedacht en extra moeite gedaan om een bed and breakfast-gevoel te bieden. Sterk aanbevelen!

    Kayla2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Ik kan deze plek niet genoeg aanbevelen. Het appartement zelf is mooi, heeft alles wat u nodig heeft en nog veel meer. Het voelt echt als een thuis weg van huis! Karin was een geweldige gastheer, stuurde heel gedetailleerde incheckinstructies, liet me mijn tas achter bij de accommodatie voor en na mijn verblijf en liet veel eten achter in de keuken voor toen ik aankwam! Het appartement ligt op niet meer dan 25 minuten lopen van alle plaatsen die u misschien wilt zien - dus het is geweldig voor mensen die graag te voet verkennen. Het is ook dicht bij veel bus- en tramhaltes als u niet veel kunt wandelen. Een geweldige ervaring!

    Alexandra2019-12-04T00:00:00Z
  • Locatie is perfect, je kunt bijna overal naartoe lopen. Je hebt een volledige toegang tot de plek, zodat je kunt komen en gaan wanneer je wilt.

    Thomas2019-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • Karin's huis was geweldig. Een foto zegt meer dan duizend woorden, maar de foto's doen haar prachtige plek geen recht. De flat was huiselijk, maar heel elegant. Haar aandacht voor de kleinste details was verbazingwekkend. Ze had zelfs een universele laadconvertor beschikbaar die op de mantel stond te wachten. Alles was aanwezig voor ons eerste ontbijt, wat het winkelen teniet deed. Ze deed zelfs een last-minute lading was, zodat we onze reis konden vervolgen met schone kleren. Het huis was centraal gelegen, dicht bij alles en de buurt voelde heel veilig. Mijn enige spijt was dat ons verblijf in Dublin zo kort was dat we niet genoeg tijd konden doorbrengen met genieten van dit heerlijke thuis weg van huis. Toch geeft het ons gewoon een ander excuus om terug te keren naar Dublin!

    Cheryl2019-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • Karin's appartement is een kans om te verblijven in een historische ruimte in Dublin. De keuken is gemoderniseerd en beschikt over alle voorzieningen die u nodig heeft. Het is op loopafstand van het station Connolly, waar verschillende grote supermarkten zijn en op slechts een paar minuten van de halte Parnell LUAS.

  • Fantastische plek. Goede locatie. Gemakkelijke communicatie. We hielden van het verblijf. En zou zeker weer verblijven wanneer ik in Dublin ben!

    Dimiana2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • Liam's plaats ligt op een perfecte locatie en erg leuk. Het was helemaal stil, hoewel er veel winkels en cafés in de buurt zijn. Was een ideale plek om onszelf te wortelen terwijl we de stad verkenden met onze twee kleine kinderen. Iedereen sliep geweldig, de keuken was mooi en vol met basics, inclusief koffie en thee, en we voelden ons echt veilig. Ik kon me geen betere plek in de stad voorstellen, vooral niet voor deze prijs.

    Elisabeth2019-12-13T00:00:00Z
  • De plaats van Liam is erg gezellig en schoon. En Liam antwoordde ons op tijd en was zeer behulpzaam :)) We hebben genoten van ons verblijf daar. De welkomst-e-mail die Liam naar mij stuurde, was erg nuttig en leidde me duidelijk naar de toegang tot de flat, wat voor soort toeristen in de buurt of in de stad ... enz. Bedankt voor het ontvangen van ons.

  • Het was een geweldige bnb-ervaring! Het ruime appartement van Liam is mooi en netjes. De hele machine in het huis werkte goed en het huis was altijd warm. Handdoeken en beddengoed was schoon en mooi. De locatie ligt dicht bij de rivier en de bushalte. Maar we kunnen ook te voet naar het centrum lopen. Ik zal dit appartement aanbevelen aan al mijn vrienden die Dublin zullen bezoeken.

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

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

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

    Thomas2019-07-13T00:00:00Z
  • We hebben een prima verblijf gehad! De locatie was geweldig voor ons, op slechts een paar minuten lopen van O'Connell Street en de Spire, en een heel gemakkelijke wandeling naar de rivier. Geweldige toegang tot Noord-Dublin sites. Veel restaurants en pubs in de buurt, en uitzicht op Mountjoy Square Park aan de overkant van de straat! Binnen is het huis absoluut prachtig, een goed onderhouden Georgiaans herenhuis, met verbazingwekkende details die doorgaan in het appartement zelf. Leuke privéruimte, fantastisch werkende open haard, gigantische ramen en slechts een heleboel historische kenmerken. Gezellig bed op de zolder. Geweldige keuken, met mooie doordachte details, waaronder yoghurt, fruit, koffie en meer. Check-in was eenvoudig en zeer zelfvoorzienend, en we waren in staat om onze tassen vroeg of laat te verlaten als dat nodig was; zou zeker weer verblijven! Wat een geweldige kans om Georgian Dublin te ervaren!

    Sean2019-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • Kwam naar Dublin voor een concert in Croke Park. Dit appartement is letterlijk om de hoek, goedkoper dan een hotel met veel betere faciliteiten en extra's. Zou hier zeker weer verblijven!

    Aaren2019-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • We hielden van Karin's place! Het uitzicht is geweldig en de inrichting heeft onze ervaring verbeterd. Ze had zorgvuldig adapters in elke plug-in, vers fruit en kookbenodigdheden. Wou dat we hadden gepland om te blijven langer dan 2 dagen. De locatie was gemakkelijk beloopbaar en openbaar vervoer rondom. We zouden deze plek zeker aanraden. Doug en Kelly, Canada

    Kelly2019-05-28T00:00:00Z
  • Echt een van de mooiste plaatsen waar ik ooit heb verbleven. Enorme ramen van vloer tot plafond - Karin had verse eieren, melk, koffie, thee, fruit en yoghurt enz. Voor ons achtergelaten - dus ik zat bij het raam na het inchecken en gewoon relaxed en keek de wereld voorbij met een enorme pot koffie. Karin had een boekje met veel goede tips over waar te gaan voor eten, drinken, winkelen, enz. Wat geweldig voor me was, want ik ben niet al te bekend met Dublin. Ik ga altijd naar dezelfde overbevolken toeristenvallen, dus het was geweldig om haar lokale kennis te hebben. Een van mijn favoriete reizen ooit weg

    Sarah2019-05-26T00:00:00Z
  • Deze flat is een prachtige, historische plek om 'thuis' te bellen terwijl je in Dublin bent. Karin is een attente, responsieve gastheer die geweldige informatie en lokale tips biedt. De flat zelf is warm en uitnodigend. De keuken en badkamer hebben alles wat je nodig hebt om comfortabel te zijn. De locatie is geweldig - dichtbij genoeg voor het nachtleven of toeristische plezier, maar net buiten die gebaande paden, zodat u elke dag Dublin kunt ervaren. We zouden graag weer hier verblijven en moedig je aan!

    Deidre2019-05-22T00:00:00Z
  • Karin was gemakkelijk om mee te communiceren en reageerde snel. Ze had gedetailleerde instructies nagelaten over alles in het appartement en veel nuttige informatie over de buurt. Haar appartement was erg mooi en we hadden een goed verblijf.

    Jaya2019-05-20T00:00:00Z
  • Prachtig ingericht, ruim appartement met uitzicht op het park en de wijk. We houden van wandelen en vonden het heel gemakkelijk om overal te geraken. Karin is een zeer behulpzame gastheer en ik zou het ten zeerste aanbevelen om hier te verblijven.

    Dublin, County Dublin, Ierland

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

Dublin two main pedestrian shopping streets, Grafton and Henry St are about 5 minutes away. Trinity College with its famous Library is 3 minutes walk. Dublin is experiencing a Renaissance after a long recession and every week a new exciting restaurant, cultural space or play is opening. It is a great time to be visiting!
  • Dardo communiceerde heel goed en was echt meegaand met ons. We landden vrij vroeg in Dublin en we konden onze tassen meteen afzetten, wat ons tijd gaf om te verkennen. Het appartement ligt op een perfecte locatie en is zeer schoon en netjes. We voelden ons echt veilig en de toegang tot en beveiliging van het gebouw was erg goed. Het appartement was zeer ruim en we voelden ons daar zeer comfortabel.

  • Een fantastische plek! Locatie was ongelooflijk, net als de uitzichten. Hield ervan de deur uit te lopen en in het hart van alle dingen te zijn die we wilden doen. Dardo was geweldig, de plaats was geweldig ... een zeer goede ervaring en ik hoop dat ik de kans krijg om daar weer te verblijven.

    Jack2020-01-26T00:00:00Z

    Louise2020-01-21T00:00:00Z

  • VERBAZINGWEKKEND!! Dit was onze favoriete lucht bnb van de reis. Het is niet alleen absoluut mooi, maar de locatie !! De gastheren waren zo behulpzaam en meegaand. We zullen 100% terugkomen in het appartement van Dublin en Dardo !!

    Madison2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Dit is zo'n perfecte locatie! Je kunt naar alles lopen wat je in Dublin wilde doen. Het appartement was stijlvol en schoon en Dardo zorgde voor een zeer gemakkelijke en volledige routebeschrijving vanaf de luchthaven.

  • Levendige moderne flat!, Op de perfecte locatie! Perfect voor de paar dagen dat we verbleven! Gemakkelijke toegang en Liam was een geweldige gastheer!

  • Liam's plek ligt op een geweldige locatie. Alles in Dublin was beloopbaar en er is een geweldig café in het volgende gebouw waar we elke dag naartoe gingen voor het ontbijt (Third Space - sterk aanbevolen!) Er is ook een echt goede koffieplek aan de overkant van de straat, dus je hebt echt alles wat je nodig zou kunnen hebben dichtbij . Liam was gemakkelijk om mee te communiceren en hielp ons met het vinden van een plek om onze koffers in te checken voordat we bij hem konden inchecken. Er is wat constructie aan de overkant van de straat die vrij vroeg in de ochtend op weekdagen begint, maar daar kan niet veel aan worden gedaan. Het hielp ons gewoon uit bed te komen en aan de slag te gaan omdat er zoveel te doen en te zien is!

  • Zeer mooi gebouw, een zeer mooie trap! Ook was onze kamer erg leuk - we hadden een kamer die aan de straatkant was gelegen - dus het was niet stil 's nachts maar we konden heel goed slapen! Karin was hier niet tijdens onze check-in, maar vanwege de exacte beschrijving hebben we onze weg gevonden. Ik wil ook vermelden dat de openbare verbinding met de luchthaven erg goed is - bijna elke bus is op loopafstand. Ook is de weg naar het centrum van Dublin slechts een paar minuten lopen. Dus we waren zeer tevreden en genoten erg van ons verblijf!

    Alex2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Geweldige plek, zeer centraal gelegen. Karin is een heel lieve gastheer en de plaats is een geweldige thuisbasis voor het verkennen van de stad.

    Emiliano2019-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • Geweldige plek om te verblijven in Dublin! Het appartement was onberispelijk en mooi! Locatie was geweldig en op loopafstand van alle belangrijke bezienswaardigheden. Karen is een geweldige gastheer. Ze gaven me zoveel geweldige reistips en zorgden ervoor dat ik me zo welkom voelde! Zou zeker aanraden om meer te reizen naar Dublin!

    Fausta2019-05-28T00:00:00Z
  • We genoten erg van ons verblijf bij Karin. Het huis is absoluut mooi en het appartement is uitgerust met alles wat je nodig hebt: volledig uitgeruste keuken, wasmachine, badkamer, etc. etc. Karin's huis ligt op 10 minuten afstand van het centrum. Het inchecken en de communicatie waren perfect. Op onze volgende reis naar Dublin zullen we zeker weer verblijven in Karin. Absoluut een aanrader!

    Marcus2019-05-25T00:00:00Z
  • Blijf hier. Het is een geweldig gebouw en alle units van Karin zijn charmant en smaakvol ingericht. Je hebt alles wat je nodig hebt in een prachtig deel van de stad dat dicht bij het centrum van Dublin ligt, maar voldoende uit de buurt om de drukte te vermijden. Ik liep de eenheid binnen en voelde me meteen thuis en had mezelf echt daar kunnen zien wonen. Je zult blij zijn.

    Julie2019-05-17T00:00:00Z
  • Karins place is de perfecte locatie voor een verblijf in het hart van Dublin, een prachtig oud gebouw met mooie details van styling en details. Wat we verwachten van een stad op de leeftijd van Dublin 5/5.

    Matthew2019-05-15T00:00:00Z
  • Het was mijn moeder en ik was de eerste keer in Ierland en ons verblijf in het mooie huis van Karin was precies waar ik op hoopte en meer! De locatie was geweldig! Vlak naast een park dat we vanuit onze kamer konden zien en het was op loopafstand om de hele stad te bereiken. Zelf inchecken was leuk en zorgde ervoor dat ik me comfortabel voelde om in en uit te stappen. Ze begroette ons bij aankomst en voorzag ons van een kaart van Dublin en eigenlijk kaartte alle wandelroutes voor ons uit naar alle plaatsen die we wilden gaan. Ze gaf ons ook wat te eten voor ons verblijf, dat was erg leuk. Ik was gewoon verliefd op het karakter en de geschiedenis van haar huis. Bloemen en planten overal! Ik zal er zeker weer verblijven om daar weer te verblijven als ik ooit terug ben in Dublin.

    Shistine2019-05-11T00:00:00Z

  • De plaats van Neil is gezellig en perfect verbonden met zowel het stadscentrum als de luchthaven. Neil is een geweldige gastheer: attent, vriendelijk en leuk! Ik zou niet aarzelen om zijn kamer opnieuw te boeken!

    Michael2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Neil was zonder twijfel een geweldige gastheer. De kamer was precies zoals geadverteerd. Het was stil. Ik vond het een geweldige locatie voor openbaar vervoer, winkels en restaurants. Ik vond het ook leuk dat het een bewandelbare stad was, dus koos ik ervoor om naar mijn bestemmingen te lopen. Ik heb een beter gevoel voor de stad. Cultureel, levendig en vriendelijk slechts een paar woorden die te binnen schieten. Neil was geweldig in het helpen van me door de stad te navigeren. Als ik hem fysiek niet zag, was hij heel gemakkelijk te bereiken via messenger. Ik zou Neil aanraden, geen probleem. Bedankt voor het ontvangen van mij.

    Marsha2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Neil gaf goede aanwijzingen om bij hem thuis te komen. Hij was in staat om me tegemoet te komen door me vroeg mijn tassen te laten afzetten. Kamer leek precies op de foto's. Ik voelde me daar echt veilig. Hij reageerde altijd snel op de boodschap en was een genot om mee te praten als ik vragen over Dublin had.

    MaryEvelyn2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Zoals altijd is Neil een aardige gastheer.

    Room is small but practical. You can use the kitchen to cook and store your food in the fridge. City center location 20-25min walk or 10 min by bus. Tesco, spar and few takeaways in walking distance. Bare in mind host (me) works Monday-Friday 9am-7pm thats why check in time is bit stretched. But on Saturday and Sunday I am fully flexible with check in time. No drop in bags before the arrival. **No additional guest allowed. **Bare in mind you are coming to my home and please respect my privacy.
    Cozy place. Close to bus stop many bus lines like 123,14,15, 130,27,27b,42,43 Croke park stadium walking distance. Tesco and 2 Spars in walking distance 5 min walk. You will share the apartment with 2 other people + 1 guest in other room

  • Ik heb een uitstekend verblijf gehad. Was stil, schoon en een goede prijs. Ik had de volgende dag een examen en de gastheren waren erg stil en attent, dus ik kon proppen!

    Robert2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Goede locatie, niet ver van de luchthaven en het centrum. Het is een kleine kamer, maar het bed is comfortabel en de douche had veel warm water. Tomislav reageerde heel snel en het inchecken en boeken verliep erg soepel. Ik zou zijn plaats aanbevelen.

    Mike2020-02-20T00:00:00Z

    Milos2019-12-06T00:00:00Z
  • Goede plek om Dublin te bezoeken voor de prijs. Tomislav is zeer behulpzaam en reactief, het was een genoegen om met hem om te gaan. Het appartement is rustig en gezellig, het was een zeer goede reis.

    Oscar2019-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • 2 erwten in een peul, waar: D maar het appartement van Tom ligt heel dicht bij de bushalte, een Spar-markt om iets te kopen en als je wilt lopen is het 30-40min van de hoofdstraat van Dublin. De kamer is natuurlijk niet groot, maar we hebben een hele leuke week binnen doorgebracht, misschien is het doorspoelen van het toilet een beetje luidruchtig, maar met enkele oordoppen is het probleem opgelost. Tom is erg aardig (net als zijn zus Lena) en verliet ons volledig autonoom naar onze spullen. Goedgekeurd !!

    Ric2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • De kamer is hetzelfde als de foto, hoewel deze niet groot is, maar een eenvoudige accommodatie voor één persoon is voldoende. Ongeveer een half uur rijden biedt de douche ook een shampoo die handig, klein en slim is! De verhuurder hecht veel belang aan schoonmaak en lawaai, en ik ben bang dat dit andere huurders zal beïnvloeden, ik vind het geweldig.

    Peggy2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Leuke ruimte voor 1 met alles wat je nodig hebt inclusief een USB-aansluiting aan de muur voor het geval je je adapter bent vergeten. Voor mij was de locatie uitstekend en heel dicht bij waar ik moest zijn, maar zelfs als je naar het centrum moet, is het ongeveer 10 minuten met de bus. Alles is vlot verlopen. Goede waarde.

    Smithfield, dublin7,, Dublin, Ierland

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

  • Leuke plek, geweldige locatie en vriendelijke gastheer !!

    Judit2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Het appartement is zeer centraal. Je bent heel dicht bij O'connel Street en kunt perfect naar alles lopen. Als je verder wilt gaan, bijvoorbeeld naar Phoenix Park, kun je vanaf daar ook de bus nemen voor een kleine prijs. We hebben de gastheer niet persoonlijk leren kennen, maar de communicatie via de site verliep soepel en er waren geen problemen met zelf inchecken. De kamer is erg klein, maar voor een weekendtrip waarbij je 's ochtends op pad gaat en' s avonds terugkomt, is het zeker genoeg. Als we weer naar Dublin vliegen, zouden we deze accommodatie opnieuw boeken.

De kamer is eenvoudig, voor degenen die alleen slapen, is geweldig. Antonio was zeer behulpzaam en zorgde er ook voor dat we ons op ons gemak voelden. Mensen wonen in het huis, maar erg stil. We hoorden geen enkel geluid en we zagen ook niemand in de gangen. Ik vind het leuk, bedankt!

  • Neil was een geweldige gastheer, heel vriendelijk en behulpzaam en zorgde ervoor dat we ons zo welkom voelden in zijn huis. De kamer was net zoals beschreven - gezellig en dicht bij de stad. We hielden van ons verblijf! Bedankt Neil :)

    Anna2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Zeer goede accommodatie, de gastheer geeft ons veel informatie om het te vinden. De kamer was schoon en comfortabel. 4 minuten lopen naar bushalte. Wij bevelen het aan.

    Alex2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect voor ons verblijf !! Zeer meegaand omdat we vroeg moesten inchecken. We hebben Neil leren kennen en genoten van onze gesprekken. Zou hier zeker verblijven als we Dublin opnieuw bezoeken!

    Amber2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Het huis van Neil was perfect gelegen ten opzichte van de stad voor onze voorkeuren. De ruimte was schoon, comfortabel en het beschikbaar hebben van douche-benodigdheden was geweldig omdat we alleen handbagage inpakken. We hebben Neil leren kennen en spreken en hij was erg behulpzaam om ons te vertellen welke toeristenvallen we moesten vermijden. Ik zou zeker bij Neil's huis op een terugreis naar Dublin verblijven.

    Amber2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Neil was geweldig. Te allen tijde super attent. Het is aangepast aan onze schema's om ons de sleutel te geven. Op het nachtkastje lag chocolade. Er is alles in de kamer. Als we terugkeren naar Dublin zullen we herhalen.

    Pedro José2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Neil plaats waard wat het waardeert. Hij begrijpt onze verschillende reissituaties en helpt ons om het te verbeteren. Zijn aanbeveling was echt goed op plaatsen om te bezoeken of aanbevelingen voor het ontbijt, enz. De kamer is goed en ruim, de badkamer is ensuite en goed voor onze reis. U bevindt zich in het stadscentrum en het is gemakkelijk om het openbaar vervoer te vinden om rond te gaan. Soms ervaren we in het openbaar vervoer in Dublin enige vertraging. Maar er zijn zeer goede en goedkope taxi's en UBER om door het stadscentrum te gaan. Dublin is een kleine stad, maar je moet je tijd nemen om een rondleiding te maken vanuit het centrum van Dublin naar Cliffs of Moher, The Brunner en Galway, het is geweldig.

    Benjamin A.2019-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • Engels: Neil is een uitstekende en zeer vriendelijke gastheer. De kamer en badkamer waren erg schoon en mooi ingericht. Het was iets dat op de een of andere manier nodig was. Zijn e-mailinstructies waren geweldig en zeer nauwkeurig. Tips voor eten en drinken waren zo geweldig, geweldige ontbijtbar en pub om de hoek, Iers en zo geweldig. Bedankt voor het verblijf, graag weer. PS: Dublin en de Cliff of Moher zijn absoluut het bekijken waard. Duits: Neil is een uitstekende en zeer vriendelijke gastheer.

  • Neils airbnb is een geweldige plek om te verblijven en ik zou deze plek ten zeerste aanbevelen! Ik was blij met de kleine details zoals de chocolade en het water op het nachtkastje of de grote keuze aan shampoo! Ik ben eigenlijk heel kieskeurig over netheid maar Neils place was echt schoon en comfortabel! Bedankt voor het ontvangen van ons Neil :)

    Gardiner House is located in a beautiful historical building. It has been completely renovated to a high standard though it still retains its originality and charm. A former 200-years-old convent with its own Victorian chapel converted into a backpacker hostel for travelers from all over the world to meet and mingle. Our aim is to make your stay in Dublin as comfortable and enjoyable as possible, making you feel at home away from home, while providing a high-quality service at a budget price.
    Each floor comes with its own wi-fi router – free wi-fi thought the whole building, and the shared rooms are equipped with all you need to ensure a comfy stay: fresh bed linen are included; power outlets for each bed; little reading lights and individual lockers underneath the bunks to lock up your valuables – bring your own padlock – otherwise padlocks, adapters and big shower towels can be purchased at reception. Hairdryers, iron, boarding games are available to borrow as well 😊 All rooms are bright and spacious and cleaned daily, each floor has multiple bathrooms, which are cleaned four times a day to ensure a high-quality standard of cleanliness.
  • Ik had echt een leuk en aangenaam verblijf in Dublin! Sterk aanbevolen.

    Lea2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • De beschrijving was behoorlijk perfect. Als ze 18 bedden zeggen, bedoelen ze 18 bedden haha. Dus als je een lichte slaper bent, zorg dan dat je een slaapmasker en oordopjes meeneemt zoals ik deed. Daarmee sliep ik redelijk goed. De bedden waren behoorlijk comfortabel en de kamer was erg schoon. Het inbegrepen ontbijt was echt heel leuk, en de locatie en prijs waren geweldig. Perfect voor een budgetreiziger.

    Jordan2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Deze plaats overtrof mijn verwachtingen op alle niveaus. Ik zal hier weer verblijven. Het personeel is ongelooflijk begripvol en behulpzaam. Ze reageren snel en met veel informatie. De kamers zijn zeer schoon, comfortabele bedden, bureau 24/7 geopend en inchecken is variabel. De badkamers zijn schoon, ze hebben handdoeken en kluisjes als je nodig hebt en bieden veel voorzieningen, waaronder ontbijt in de ochtend. 10/10

    Ashley2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Super schoon, ongelooflijk betaalbaar, geweldig ontbijt verspreid. U kunt een handdoek meenemen of er een huren voor € 1, en slot voor de kluisjes onder de bedden meenemen, zodat u geen € 5 hoeft uit te geven om er een te kopen. Ik waardeerde dat ze gratis oordoppen boden, en de kapel zelf is echt een coole en unieke plek om te verblijven. Ik heb mijn tas een paar uur in de bagageruimte achtergelaten en had geen problemen, maar er staat een bordje om het op eigen risico te gebruiken, en ik sprak met een man die zijn bagage had gestolen en zei dat de receptie weigerde om kijk naar de CCTV-beelden dus wees daar voorzichtig mee. Over het algemeen had ik een fantastisch verblijf en de prijs kon niet worden overtroffen.

    Netiya2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Was geweldig en goedkoop

    Adrian2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • Het ontbijt is prima. Alles is voldoende voorzien !! Twee soorten brood, twee soorten roomkaas, boter, nutella, ontbijtgranen, vier soorten, melk, jus d'orange, fruit, sinaasappel, appel, banaan verschijnen twee soorten willekeurig. Als het niet leeg is, vul het dan op dat moment, en het personeel zal de afwas doen tijdens het ontbijt ~~ ♡

    2020-01-30T00:00:00Z

    The house is a terraced house in a quiet cul de sac in Dublin, just 10 min away from the airport by car and 20 min away from the city centre by bus. There are groceries, pharmacy and places to grab food 2 min away by foot, as well as a bus stop where one can take a bus to the city centre every 5-10 minutes. The house has a kitchen, a living room, two bathrooms and a back garden, all of which I am happy to share with guests.
    I live on my own in a small house. The decoration is very influenced by my work, my passion for old and crafted furniture and my time in Scandinavia. One should expect a lot of wood and white, with simple and rustic furniture and a very cosy feeling. There is a stove in the living room that makes the best company in the evenings.
    Ballymun is a very interesting neighborhood and its story reflects some of the better and worse aspects of Dublin. The area in which the house is located is very quiet. There are supermarkets, food takeaway, pharmacy and a really nice coffee place at the rediscovery centre, which is located at the ol boiler house of the neighborhood.

  • Het was zo leuk. Ik hou van dat huis.

  • Goede locatie. Waar voor je geld

    Gabrielle2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Lee was zo behulpzaam met onze check-in tijd. De locatie was perfect en zijn communicatie hielp ons om ons nauwkeurig geïnformeerd te voelen gedurende onze hele reis. Ik zou het zeker aanbevelen.

    Shea2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Ik hield van mijn verblijf hier in Lee's prachtige kleine plaats! Het is compact maar gezellig, met een comfortabel bed en geweldige accenten zoals haver en pakjes soep (zeer gewaardeerd in het midden van de winter) en alles wat je nodig hebt om een maaltijd te bereiden. De locatie is ook ideaal, een korte wandeling naar O'Connell st en niet te ver van de Liffey of Temple Bar. Een smart tv zorgt ook voor Netflix-streaming. Het allerbelangrijkste was dat Lee een aardige en attente gastheer was, communicatief en bood me ook aan om nog een nacht te blijven toen ik in Dublin gestrand was - zeer gewaardeerd. Ik kan deze plek niet genoeg aanbevelen.

    Carina2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Een mooi, schoon en gezellig appartement op korte loopafstand van het centrum van Dublin!

    Isabelle2020-01-08T00:00:00Z

Alles was zoals beloofd en het appartement was erg schoon. De badkamer is een beetje koud maar dat is helemaal geen probleem. Bedankt voor het verblijf!

  • Kamer was schoon en veilig. Annie neemt altijd contact met je op en helpt wanneer je maar wilt. Aarzel niet om te huren :)

    Nida2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Dit was een ideale plek om te verblijven als je niet op zoek bent naar tijd om de gastheer te leren kennen. Voor mij is dit een super pluspunt. Ik hou van absolute privacy en was in staat om mezelf in te checken zonder af te spreken en een uur door te brengen met praten en glimlachen en ongemakkelijk voelen. De locatie is fantastisch; inderdaad, het is de beste plek in de stad (weg van Temple Bar - een nachtmerrie) maar is volledig centraal en op een paar blokken van alle belangrijke bezienswaardigheden (Trinity College in het bijzonder). Goede aanwijzingen. De plaats wordt gedeeld met twee andere kamers, maar ik ben nog nooit iemand tegengekomen - wat ideaal was en het was stil. Alles bij elkaar genomen was dit perfect voor mij om te blijven om voor zaken in de stad te zorgen.

    Creston2019-10-24T00:00:00Z

  • Een echt juweeltje. Verborgen in een rustige woonwijk was deze plek een echte verrassing. Compact maar perfect ingedeeld, gezellig, brandschoon en misschien wel de best gevulde (keuken en badkamer) Airbnb waar ik ooit in heb verbleven!

    Evert2019-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • Geweldig verblijf! Donna was zeer behulpzaam en vriendelijk. Geweldige locatie vanuit of naar de luchthaven. Snelle rit in een taxi en Donna was er om al mijn vragen te beantwoorden! Zou hier zeker weer verblijven!

    Kimberly2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • De plaats van Donna was geweldig. We verbleven slechts een nacht op weg naar ergens anders, maar haar huis ligt dicht bij de 27 buslijn die u rechtstreeks naar het stadscentrum brengt. Leuke plaatsen en zeer vriendelijke gastheren.

    Nikoletta2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • Gezellig, warm en schoon verblijf met alles wat u nodig heeft en nog een paar extra's meer. Gratis op straat parkeren en een eigen ingang. Mini melkkan, yoghurt, eieren en jam in de koelkast. Kast heeft weinig solide extra's. Veel extra toiletartikelen waren handig. Overal geen ruis en veel licht. Een geweldige tussenstop na onze vlucht. Geen tv maar het was niet essentieel voor ons doel. Lokale supermarkt SuperValu heeft alles wat je nodig hebt! Geen echte restaurants of pubs op loopafstand dus auto / taxi essentieel. Zal er weer verblijven!

    Elizabeth2019-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • Deze plaats was erg ontspannend na veel reizen. Het was super schoon en had alles wat ik nodig had om te koken en op te ruimen, wat een enorm probleem voor mij is! Zou hier zeker weer verblijven.

    Shane2019-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • Mooi plekje en heeft alles wat je nodig zou kunnen hebben. Het was perfect voor ons voordat we naar onze volgende bestemming gingen omdat het vrij dicht bij de luchthaven ligt. We hebben genoten van ons korte verblijf.

    Welcome to our home in Marino. You have a private room with double bed which is located upstairs and access to the shared bathroom on the same level. You also have access to the kitchen. We’re vegetarian so I respectfully ask that you only cook vegetarian meals in the house. Breakfast is self-service. There are cereals, dairy or oat milk, yoghurt and fruit, and tea and coffee. Buses to city centre located 3 min walk from house, we’re near the airport and a short drive to Dublin Ferry Port.
    The Kitchen/Lounge Has all the usual bits you might need; fridge, cooker, kettle, toaster, washing machine and space to store your dry foods too. There is space to sit and relax, plenty of cookery books to peruse. The house has minimalist furniture as you can see from looking at the pic of the kitchen. The Bedroom The mattress sits on tatami mats, so is low to the ground. There’s a wardrobe, shelves, a small table with floor cushions and a mirror. The Bathroom Again, the usual; toilet, sink, shower and bath. There is also shared shampoo, shower gel and hand wash. Note this is a bedroom in a shared house so you will be sharing the bathroom with 2 or 3 other people.
    It's a quiet, friendly residential neighbourhood right beside the Casino of Marino which was built as a Summer house for Lord Charlemont in the 1600's, so no actual gambling going on just a beautiful old House.

  • Geweldige plek op een gunstige locatie. Veel cafés en bars in de buurt en het meeste harde werk is voor u gedaan met de gids. Zou het zeker aanraden en zal er weer verblijven wanneer we terugkeren naar Dublin!

    Emily2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Geweldige plek om te verblijven

    Ronald2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Zeer goed onderhouden, lekker warm, lekker zacht bed

    Michael2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Geweldig appartement met alles wat nodig is voor een uitje met stellen. Goede locatie, op ongeveer 15 minuten lopen van de tempelbar maar ook tal van winkels en plaatsen om dichter bij het appartement te eten. In- en uitchecken was eenvoudig en Simon reageerde erg snel toen hij hem een berichtje stuurde. Over het algemeen zou ik zeker aanraden hier te verblijven en zou hier weer verblijven als ik terugkom naar Dublin.

    Richard2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Net zoals verwacht! Goede locatie en dicht bij bushaltes! Ik vond het geweldig!

    Megan2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Appartement op de derde verdieping. Klein appartement waar je je goed voelt. Houd er rekening mee dat de bank niet groot is. Het beddengoed is te zacht voor mij, maar het is nog steeds een persoonlijke mening. Zeer rustig geen lawaai 's avonds of' s nachts.

    Alisson2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • De flat schoon en zeer flirterig, goed gelegen. In 20 minuten lopen bent u in het stadscentrum. De eigenaar erg behulpzaam en vriendelijk.

    Miriam2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Mijn partner en ik bezochten tijdens Kerstmis en hadden echt een heerlijke tijd. Het pand was dicht bij de meeste bezienswaardigheden met de wandeling plat en gemakkelijk om overal te geraken. De bus naar het vliegveld was in dezelfde straat (Parnell 747) en openbaar vervoer was niet nodig, behalve om van en naar het vliegveld te komen. De trappen kunnen rustig steil zijn, maar dit was geen probleem voor ons. Bed was zo comfortabel! We zijn erin geslaagd om een volledig kerstdiner te maken na een bezoek aan de lokale supermarkten (lidl en tesco) en de keuken was goed uitgerust, afgezien van het ontbreken van een vriezer - we wisten niet tot nadat we onze boodschappen hadden gekocht, maar om eerlijk te zijn was dit niet geadverteerd. Al met al hadden we een geweldige tijd en zouden er weer verblijven als Dublin bezoeken.

    Rafael2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • De gastheer is aardig Goede omgeving en goede uitrusting Er is warm water, maar koud water en warm water worden apart aangepast en hebben oefening nodig Als er geen lift is, is de bagage zwaar.

    Do2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Mooie gastheer op een prachtige locatie, deze kamer was perfect. Geweldige gemeenschap van mensen en het voelde als thuis.

    Maria2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Marius, bedankt dat je aardig voor ons bent. Hoewel ons verblijf erg kort was, voelden we ons op uw gemak en zouden we bij u blijven als u Dublin opnieuw bezoekt. Wees voorzichtig!

    Sara2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Perfecte plek om te verblijven voor een korte reis naar Dublin. Zou er weer blijven!

    Jeff2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Alles heel schoon, de keuken geweldig. Marius antwoordde ons in minder dan een uur, wat geweldig was. 100% aanbevolen

    Anais2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Allemaal goed, relatief centraal en een goede prijs-kwaliteitverhouding

    Eduardo2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • We wilden twee dagen in Dublin doorbrengen en we kozen voor de Marius-kamer. Het was een zeer goede keuze. Dicht bij het centrum, schone kamer, comfortabel bed. Marius en zijn huisgenoten zijn vriendelijk. We hebben sleutels van het appartement en we kunnen zo lang zonder problemen naar de stad gaan. Als je iets zoekt voor een kort verblijf, raad ik je deze kamer echt aan.

  • Vergeet niet de specifieke locatie aan de taxichauffeur te zeggen als u vanaf de luchthaven komt. Bijvoorbeeld de naam van de weg ... enzovoort

    Sukjin2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Ik verbleef 3 nachten bij Frances en ik kan zeggen dat het als thuis voelde. Frances en haar man zijn zeer positieve en aardige mensen, ze waren bereid om te helpen met advies over hoe je ergens in Dublin kon komen. Ik raad Frances zeker aan als gastheer!

    Alina2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Ik had een zeer comfortabel verblijf bij Frances. Ze was gastvrij en communicatief. Zou er graag weer verblijven!

    Patrick2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Ik beveel Frances voor 100% aan dat ze echt een goede gastheer is.

    Jonas2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Frances is aardig en zorgzaam - ik zou de plek alleen voor haar aanbevelen! Bovendien is het huis erg schoon, het bed comfortabel en de douche warm! Het heeft alle voorzieningen die u nodig heeft, is een mooie wandeling van tien minuten naar het pijltje in een rustige buurt en voelt gewoon gastvrij en comfortabel aan! Ik zal zeker terugkomen!

    L.2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • Wat u kunt verwachten, gaat verder dan het gemiddelde AirBnB-verblijf! Frances is een van de meest gracieuze en vriendelijke gastheren en de accommodaties zijn precies zoals gepost. Ik bleef 5 dagen, had gewoon een plek nodig om te slapen en te ontspannen tussen de avonturen en het was precies dat, een thuis weg van huis. Zal Frances in de toekomst opnieuw bezoeken.

    Rachel (Shelly)2019-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • Deze plek is een echte aanrader, Frances is een erg aardige en behulpzame persoon en de kamer is gezellig en schoon. De locatie ligt op 10 minuten van het treinstation en het is ongeveer een half uur van het centrum. Er zijn enkele restaurants, winkels en een park niet ver.

    Ксения2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • Frances is een aardige gastheer en alles werkte prima tijdens het verblijf. Haar huis ligt in een woonwijk, maar is gemakkelijk te bereiken vanuit het centrum van Dublin. Als u op zoek bent naar een rustige omgeving, is dit een uitstekende keuze.

  • Clare was absoluut een van de beste gastheren die ik in al mijn Airbnb-verblijven ben tegengekomen. Ik voelde me welkom om bij haar thuis te zijn en ze paste gracieus mijn gekke schema aan. Het was geweldig om elke nacht weg te zijn van de gekte van het stadscentrum en een vredige rust te hebben in haar rustige buurt. Ik raad niet alleen aan om bij haar te blijven, maar dit is waar ik zal verblijven de volgende keer dat ik naar Dublin ga.

    Sujie2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • Clare is een heel aardige dame. Ze bood me zelfs een kleine rit naar de bushalte aan. Het huis ligt in een rustige omgeving dicht bij het park en de zeezijde. Het uitzicht op de zee is adembenemend. De locatie van het huis ligt ook dicht bij de bushalte, erg handig!

    Maggie2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Clare is geweldig en haar huis was geweldig !! Ze was zo lief en aardig en bood geweldige suggesties, waaronder naar de stad Howth gaan !! Mijn ervaring was de beste!

  • Clare is een aardige gastvrouw en ze zorgde ervoor dat ik me thuis voelde in Dublin. De plaats is mooi en je kunt gemakkelijk de bus nemen naar het stadscentrum.

    Sander2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • De plaats van Clare ligt in de buitenwijk van Dublin en is zeer toegankelijk. Ik had een geweldig verblijf. Ontbijt in de ochtend en zeer dicht bij bezienswaardigheden (stadscentrum) of verder.

    Richard2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Clare was erg gastvrij en reageerde heel snel op al mijn berichten en vragen. De kamer en badkamer waren erg schoon! Dank je!

    Clontarf, Dublin, Ierland

    Newly renovated, funky second floor flat located 5 minute walk from the Spire, O'Connell St - where all tours, buses, trams depart from. Featuring a compact, open plan kitchen/diner and chic living room for relaxing in with a double bed, providing comfortable, great value sleeping arrangements for 2 people. In a historic Georgian terrace only a short walk from restaurants, supermarkets; pubs; cafes; the cosy fit out is superbly rounded off by it's convenient proximity to the major attractions.
    - The apartment is on the the second floor, but there is no lift in the building. - Like in all big cities, light or early sleepers should bring ear plugs due to some street noise caused by weekends revelers returning home late. - Paper towels are not provided - this is a choice for the environment and the future. - We do not supply face cloths, sorry - our linen company does not stock them. - A bathroom and kitchen, with the benefits of an electric, instant shower and all you need to cook, including kettle, toaster, hob, fridge and pots, pans and trays. Like all of our apartments, this has all a traveler needs to 'live like a local' and see the sights, without having to take public transport everywhere, or to hire a car.........
    The apartment is perfectly located for exploring the city; all of the city's cultural institutions are within walking distance and the transport connections are excellent NORTHSIDE CULTURAL ATTRACTIONS The North side of Parnell Square is home to the city's Hugh Lane Gallery of Modern Art; we share a significant collection of Impressionist painting with the Tate Gallery in London, part of the Hugh Lane Bequest, which is rotated in seven-year cycles. Next door is the Writer's Centre, and next door again, is the Writer's Museum, with a Michelin-starred restaurant in the basement, the amazing Chapter One. Down on the East side of Parnell Square is the beautiful jewel-box that is the Gate Theatre - part of the 18th-century entertainment complex established by the entrepreneurial Dr. Bartholomew, to help support his new Rotunda Maternity Hospital (the oldest purpose-built such hospital in the world, and still delivering babies on a daily basis, 270 years later (9000 is 2012). In general, shopping hours are 9.30-6pm, with late-night shopping till 8pm on Thursdays. Sunday opening is from noon. BREAKFAST The Kingfisher Café, a no-frills 'caff' on the corner of Parnell Square and Parnell Street West is good for breakfast, with friendly and efficient service. Good value, and good fish and chips later in the day. The Old Music Store on North Frederick Street, a few blocks South of us, does a good Irish breakfast in comfortable surroundings. Dunne's Stores, is the indigenous supermarket and department store chain, and has branches in every sizeable town throughout the country. There are two local branches. In North Earl Street, opposite O’Connell Street’s Spire, the Off-Licence (liquor store) is in a separate premises, a few doors apart - look for the James Joyce statue. You will find a bigger branch in the ILAC Shopping Centre, flanked by Henry Street, Moore Street and Parnell Street West (Moore Street entrance is opposite Paris Bakery).
  • Echt geweldige Airbnb, voelde als een mini-appartement en had alles wat je nodig had. Als je daar wilde koken, kon dat gemakkelijk, wat we geweldig vonden.

    Rose2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Geweldig plek! Perfecte loopafstand van het centrum. Ik hield van mijn verblijf hier.

    Lauren2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Klein appartement met zorg ingericht, goed uitgerust en zeer schoon. Het herstellen van de sleutels gebeurt met een code, het is praktisch als je laat aankomt. En Simon reageert indien nodig erg goed. Als je geen zin hebt om te koken, vind je binnen 10 minuten lopen wat je zoekt. Let op: de trap is steil en smal om naar het appartement te gaan dat zich op de tweede bevindt. De badkamer met laag plafond is niet geschikt voor lange mensen, maar voegt charme toe aan het geheel. Een hele goede basis. Ik kom terug!

    Jeanne2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Zoveel te zeggen hier. De locatie was dicht bij alles wat ik maar kon wensen en ik en mijn partner hielden van de plek die het zo privé voelde. Kwam Francis bacons studio bezoeken en het was 5 minuten verwijderd!

    Callum2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Goede locatie! Kamer was erg schoon en uitgerust met alles wat we nodig zouden kunnen hebben. Simon was zeer responsief en behulpzaam tijdens ons verblijf, zeer aan te bevelen!

    Located in the heart of the city, no need for additional transport. 1 minute walk to O'Connell street, 4 minute walk to temple bar and trinity college. Blacked-out curtains, high floor, late check-out of 1pm, quiet apartment = a good night sleep at a great price in dublin city centre. Wake up to a snack. Tea, coffee and biscuits provided. Fresh towels and fresh linen with every stay. Very quiet, clean, good sized bedroom on the fourth floor (elevator access).
    Fourth floor north inner city apartment, with southern facing window. View the famous custom house, spire and many more features of the beautiful Dublin skyline. We have opted to remove the wardrobe and set up a more relaxing sitting area, so that guests can comfortably enjoy a meal or relax and make plans for the day.
    The eclectic and intriguing Asian district of Dublin, very historically significant and of course very central area with everything within a short walking distance.
  • Bedankt voor de gastvrijheid, we bevonden ons heel goed in de accommodatie, Colm was altijd beschikbaar voor onze verzoeken.

  • Fantastische locatie - op loopafstand van alles wat we in Dublin hoopten te zien. Colm was een goede gastheer en nam de tijd om ons door lokale bezienswaardigheden te praten. Hij was geweldig in het communiceren met ons, en bood zelfs aan om ons iets eerder binnen te laten dan oorspronkelijk was overeengekomen, vanwege de vroege aankomst van onze vlucht.

    Georgia2019-10-04T00:00:00Z

If you come by car your car will be safe outside under the tree. If you have to use public transport the bus stop is 5 minutes from our house into the city centre.
  • Na het lezen van alle beoordelingen die Berni had, was het geen vraag voor mij waar ik mijn accommodatie zou boeken! Ze is erg aardig, vóór mijn vlucht stuurde ze me alle informatie die ik nodig zou kunnen hebben. Ze denkt er altijd aan om de kosten te verlagen, dus ze heeft me net alles verteld wat handig kan zijn voor budgetreizigers. Helaas kwam mijn vlucht 's avonds, ondanks dat ze me echt hartelijk verwelkomde. Naast een kopje thee vertelde ze me alles over de aanblik, wat de moeite waard is om te bezoeken, waar te gaan, welke bus ik moet gebruiken. De kamer was schoon, comfortabel en was gevuld met vele extra's. Ze bereidde een grote mand vol toiletartikelen en niet te vergeten de mand met veel kaarten, gidsen voor Dublin. Het huis ligt op slechts 20 minuten van het centrum en ligt in een heel rustige, groene wijk. Haar man, Martin, is ook een heel grappige, relaxte man met wie ik ook echt leuke chats had! Last but not least een heel lieve en schattige hond, Amy was er ook, waardoor de langdurige chats "hariger" werden

    Alex2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Bernie en haar familie waren allemaal aardige en gastvrije mensen. Bernie heeft uitstekend werk geleverd om ervoor te zorgen dat alles tijdens mijn verblijf goed verliep en gaf ook graag tips over Dublin. Uitstekende waarde voor de plaats in een rustige buitenwijk op slechts ongeveer 30 minuten van de stad. Ik heb erg genoten van mijn verblijf in haar huis.

    Nathan2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • Het was prachtig verblijf met geweldige mensen rond. Bernadette is vriendelijk en behulpzaam. Ik voelde me alsof ik thuis ben. Ik zal er weer helemaal zijn. 10/10

    Tomas2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Ik hou ervan op jouw plek te blijven! Een huis vol liefde. Zou graag terugkomen. ik ging op bezoek bij grote bedrijven, maar de tijd bij AirBnb thuis was net zo geweldig als mijn redenen waarom ik daar aankwam. kan niet wachten om terug te gaan en ik zou gegarandeerd verblijven in Bernadettes. Amy de meest geweldige en schattige hond zal in mijn hart zijn, net als de familie Bernadette, voelde als een in de familie die 3 prachtige dagen dat ik daar verbleef. alle informatie die ik kreeg voordat ik ging, hielp mij en mijn groep van 17 omdat niemand zulke goede informatie had als ik van mijn mooie Airbnb-familie. kan niet wachten om terug te gaan!

    Rassmus2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Mijn eerste Airbnb-accommodatie ooit en het kon niet beter. Onmiddellijk na aankomst kreeg ik een kopje thee, toast en geweldig reisadvies van Bernadette. Ze was zo behulpzaam vanaf het moment van boeken tot het einde van mijn verblijf in Dublin. Huis ligt vrij van centrum (in rustige plaats), maar dat is geen probleem dankzij het geweldige openbaar vervoer in de stad. Ik hield ook van hond Amy die vriendelijk was sinds de eerste keer dat ik haar ontmoette :) .. Als ik ooit naar Dublin ga, zal ik zo blij zijn om Bernie en haar familie weer te ontmoeten!

    Martin2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • Bernie is een echte dame en haar gastvrijheid kent geen grenzen. Ze biedt een zeer gastvrije woning die alles biedt wat je nodig zou kunnen hebben, en meer! Veel leuke kleine details die dit echt een geweldige plek maken om te verblijven. Sprankelend schoon en uitstekende prijs-kwaliteitverhouding - zou het aanbevelen!

    Grace2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • De kamer is klein maar super schoon en gezellig, met de hele dag koffie en thee. De keuken is ook goed uitgerust. Bernadette is absoluut geweldig. Ik geniet echt van mijn verblijf daar. Ze geeft me het gevoel dat ik mijn tante in Ierland bezoek. Soms wil ik niet eens naar het centrum van de stad, wil ik gewoon in het huis blijven en tijd doorbrengen met haar en haar mooie damehond Amy! Bedankt voor het hartelijk ontvangen van mij!

    Lola2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Voor een sociale ervaring is dit de plek voor jou! Normaal schrijf ik geen Airbnb-beoordelingen, maar dit geval is een uitzondering omdat het echt ongelooflijk was. Logeren bij Bernadette en Martin was de meest geweldige ervaring die ik ooit heb gehad in een Airbnb. Hun vriendelijkheid en gastvrijheid zijn vrijwel ongeëvenaard. Voor reizigers die de lokale bevolking willen ontmoeten en leuke gesprekken met thee of bier willen voeren, is dit de plek voor jou! Ze doen hun best om ervoor te zorgen dat uw ervaring in Dublin de beste is die het zou kunnen zijn - ze bieden niet alleen een prachtige kamer, maar ook geweldig en nuttig reisadvies dat reizen in de stad een fluitje van een cent maakt. Ze zijn echt enkele van de beste mensen die je ooit zult ontmoeten en ik voel me erg gelukkig dat ik deze plek heb gekozen als mijn accommodatie tijdens mijn korte verblijf in Dublin. Wanneer ik terugkom naar Dublin, zal ik absoluut weer hier verblijven. Bedankt, Bernie en Martin!
