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

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

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

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

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

  • Vidunderlig studiolejlighed med mezzanin. Fantastisk beliggenhed 15 min. Gang til GPO. Nem check-in-proces, masser af ting, du har brug for i skabene i køkkenet og badeværelset, og tip og tip til det lokale område. Ikke en dårlig ting at sige om det. Stærkt anbefale

  • Jeg bookede denne app til familiemedlemmer som en fødselsdagsgave, de elskede den.

  • Virkelig fantastisk oplevelse hele vejen rundt.

  • Karins sted var et samlet godt ophold for os. Hun var tankevækkende og efterlod nogle madvarer til os i køleskabet og var hurtig til at svare på alt, hvad vi havde brug for. Placeringen var en 15 minutters gang til centrum og var temmelig sikker. Min eneste klage var bruser var meget lille, men bortset fra at det var et godt ophold!

    Chase2019-06-25T00:00:00Z
  • Karin er en meget erfaren vært, intet mangler! Lejligheden er uplettede rene og alt er som i beskrivelsen. Vi vil gerne blive der længere, måske næste gang. Oplysningerne er meget hjælpsomme, Karin tænkte virkelig på alt! Vi har meget nydt vores snak med hende. Derfor er det meget nemt for os at anbefale denne indkvartering.

    Stefan2018-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Helt smukke lejlighed. Alt var rent og oplysningerne var klare. Vi spurgte, om det ville være muligt at droppe vores bagage i bygningen før check-in, og det var ikke et problem overhovedet for dem! Der er også en opvaskemaskine, og det var den første jeg så i en Air BnB!

    Évelyne2018-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • Vidunderlig flad, meget bekvemt til butikker og restauranter. Karin og Jackie er begge dejlige og er meget hurtige med deres svar og vejledning. Jeg værdsat virkelig opmærksomheden på detaljer og hvor sikker jeg følte som en solo rejsende. Tak for at dele din lejlighed!

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

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

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

  • Fantastisk vært og fantastisk plads! Karin og Jackie var store værter og stedet var unikt og meget rent! Jeg anbefaler at bo her helt sikkert!

    Sara2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Charmerende historisk hems, som er fantastisk til et ophold i Dublin. Bygningen er smuk og havde dejlige detaljer inklusive liljer. Karin svarede også hurtigt på meddelelser. Den eneste ulempe er, at mange lokale sagde, at kvarteret ikke var det sikreste, så vi endte med at tage førerhuse hver aften.

    Aubri2019-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • En dejlig flad oplevelse med en fantastisk beliggenhed!

    Deb2019-07-06T00:00:00Z

  • Smuk lejlighed. Liam er meget hjælpsom! Vi reccomend lejligheden!

    Stephanie2019-04-09T00:00:00Z

    Janina2019-04-02T00:00:00Z
  • Lejligheden overrasker positivt, når man kommer - da adgangsforholdene er lidt triste. Den er lys og venlig. Der var kaffe, te og koldt vand i køleskabet, så vi kunne 'tjekke ind' med det. Derudover var der også sukker, salt og peber. Opvaskemiddel og -tabs, plastikposer mm., så det var dejlig nemt at gå til. Vi havde 5 fine dage i Dublin.

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

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!
  • Fantastisk sted, meget hyggeligt og behageligt og inden for gåafstand til alt hvad du kunne få brug for!

    Ed2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • Stedet var uplettede, meget komfortabelt indrettede. Så mange ekstramateriale. Loftet er ikke højt, men heller ikke jeg. Jeg sov som et lam. Super hjælpsom med at lade mig efterlade min bagage til en afhentning af en lejebil. Overgik mine forventninger.

    Barbi2019-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • Kom til Dublin for en koncert i Croke Park. Denne lejlighed er bogstaveligt talt rundt om hjørnet, billigere end et hotel med langt bedre faciliteter og ekstra tilbehør. Ville bestemt bo her igen!

    Aaren2019-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • Jeg har haft et vidunderligt ophold på Karins georgiske studie. Kommunikationen på forehand var god med praktiske tip og forklaringer. Indbydende var varm, og Karin tog sig tid, var meget venlig. Der var en masse ekstra godbidder i køleskabet, og jeg har følt mig så velkommen. Ved afrejse gik min fly timer efter at have checket ud: ikke noget problem, Karin lod mig lægge min bagage i hallen, så jeg kunne gå på skiltning (jeg gik til den smukke Howth). Meget anbefalende !!!

    Monique2019-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • Karin er virkelig en stor vært. Hendes lejlighed er smuk, godt placeret til at besøge Dublin og tage sig tid til at opleve byen ved at gå. Hun byder dig velkommen med stor venlighed og opmærksomhed. Hun havde gjort nogle shopping for rigelige og varierede morgenmad, det er virkelig rart. Hendes indikationer er klare og komplette. Tag dig tid til at læse dem godt, for hvis du finder dig selv fast foran døren, vil Karin ikke undlade at fortælle dig .... Og hun har det rigtige! Meget flot ophold på Karins lejlighed for et behageligt ophold i Dublin. At anbefale!

    Patrick2018-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • Varmt og komfortabelt ophold i et dejligt georgiansk hjem. Placeringen er fremragende, kommunikationen med Karin er første sats. Morgenmad godbidder leveres og at kunne forlade poser før og efter er et stort plus. Vi ville elske at vende tilbage til Dublin og bo på Karins igen. Mange tak

    Julie2018-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • Karins sted er vidunderligt, og hun var en fantastisk og imødekommende vært

    Dustin2018-09-29T00:00:00Z

  • Wow! Fantastisk ophold til min fødselsdag med et par af mine venner. Fra gået var Sarah så indbydende med sine meget venlige hunde. Hun tilføjede endda balloner & processo! Virkelig tankevækkende hånd. Seng var så behagelig og havde en fantastisk søvn, pool & sauna område er perfekt. Pricy men meget værd det. Vil 100% anbefale til venner x

    Ais2019-05-12T00:00:00Z
  • Sarahs hjem er stort og dejligt. De fire af os opholdt sig på øverste niveau med stuen og køkkenet. Vi havde alt, hvad vi havde brug for for at lave hurtige måltider. Sengene var så behagelige. Vandtrykket var fantastisk. Vi brugte ikke puljen eller saunaen, men de var tilgængelige for os. Vi følte os meget sikre og sikre.

    Jodi2019-05-11T00:00:00Z
  • hvis du vil have en smag af himlen i dublin er dette stedet som du har et fredfyldt miljø med en opvarmet pool og sauna ved siden af en vidunderlig park og gode værter i en dejlig indstilling inde og ude i en historisk renovering

    David2019-05-01T00:00:00Z
  • Sarah og hendes ejendom er et sjældent fund i dagens verden. Hendes varme er kun matchet af hendes hjem på stalde. Denne maleriske irske ejendom ligger i et hyggeligt og roligt kvarter lige ved siden af en park med mange aktiviteter. Sarah har til formål at glæde og behandle sine gæster som hendes dejlige familie. De tre ting, som jeg finder mest vigtige i en AirB & B er: seng, brusebad pres, og renlighed af lejligheden. Alle tre er usædvanlige i dette dejlige hjem. Ikke alene giver Sarah et dejligt sted, men hun har også et væld af kendskab til Dublin. Det var et privilegium at møde Sarah, hendes familie (herunder hunde) og blive i hendes AirB & B.

    Andrew2019-04-29T00:00:00Z
  • Hvis vi kunne give 6 ud af 5 stjerner ville vi. Stedet var helt spektakulært fra start til slut. Ren, hjemlig og tankevækkende. Sarah var den mest dejlige vært fra en velkommen, da vi landede for at sikre, at vi havde alt, hvad vi havde brug for. Vi ønsker, at hun kunne køre hver Airbnb.

    Alecia2019-04-19T00:00:00Z
  • Jeg blev hos Sarah i en gruppe på seks for at fejre min vens høne gør i Dublin for en nat i weekenden. Jeg forventede at være dejlige baseret på fotos og tidligere anmeldelser, og vores ophold overskredet expecations! Hjemmet er helt fantastisk, og Sarah gik ud over at sikre os, at vi var glade og følte os hjemme fra at tillade os at checke ind tidligt, da vi havde et meget tidligt fly, da vi ankom, for at tage vores tasker til lufthavnen for at møde os næste aften så vi behøvede ikke at bære dem rundt med os efter tjekker ud. Hun tilbød også os løfter når det er muligt ind i byen og tilbød os rabatkuponer til attraktioner, vi besøgte. Sarahs eget hjem er adskilt fra pensionatet, men hun var tilgængelig, hvis vi nogensinde havde brug for noget. Hun har også nogle gorgoeus hunde vi mødte som var et plus :) Hjemmet sammen med pool og sauna virkelig følte luksuriøse og Sarah er en virkelig venlig vært, så jeg ville absolut ikke tøve med at booke her. En af de bedste airbnb oplevelser. Tak igen x

    Helen2019-04-14T00:00:00Z
  • En virkelig vidunderlig plads nær Phoenix Park, Zoo, Downtown og lufthavn med helt vidunderlige værter. Parlamentet er rummeligt og fungerede vidunderligt for vores gruppe på 8 inklusive 4 børn. Sarah gik virkelig ud over at hjælpe os ud. Stærkt anbefale.

    Ryan2019-04-02T00:00:00Z

    Dublin, Irland

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

Dublin two main pedestrian shopping streets, Grafton and Henry St are about 5 minutes away. Trinity College with its famous Library is 3 minutes walk. Dublin is experiencing a Renaissance after a long recession and every week a new exciting restaurant, cultural space or play is opening. It is a great time to be visiting!
  • Du kan ikke slå denne placering! Tæt gåtur til alt i Dublin! Lejligheden var comfy og har alt hvad du behøver for dit ophold.

  • Dardos lejlighed er perfekt beliggende og virkelig smukt designet. Super rummelige og sikre, meget rene og med alle bekvemmeligheder er det virkelig specielt. Vi vil meget anbefale for en lang weekend i Dublin!

    Madeleine2019-05-06T00:00:00Z
  • Placering, beliggenhed, beliggenhed. Darios lejlighed er et rummeligt moderne rum med højt til loftet og plads til at sprede sig og slappe af. Efter et par minutter sagde min kone "Hvis dette sted havde en tørretumbler og en vaskemaskine, ville det være perfekt" 2 minutter senere åbnede hun en skabsdør for at finde et skjulhul med begge. Vi vil være tilbage.

    David2019-05-02T00:00:00Z
  • Vi holdt på Dardo sted for et par nætter i april. Lejligheden opfyldte vores forventninger og afspejler nøjagtigt de billeder og beskrivelse, der er noteret på Airbnb. Min kone var eskatiske for at se, at der var både en hårtørrer og rækværk på badeværelset. Dardo besvarede hurtigt vores spørgsmål og kunne imødekomme en tidlig check-in anmodning, som var en enorm hjælp. Hans anbefalinger til restauranter og pubber var store. Lejligheden placering var awesome og var i gåafstand til alt. Vi ville helt sikkert blive på Dardo sted igen i fremtiden.

    Ryan2019-04-28T00:00:00Z
  • Dette sted var smarte og i det perfekte sted i Dublin. Tæt på Temple Bar men uden at føle at du er i et turistområde. Vil blive igen næste gang jeg er i Dublin!

    Alexandra2019-04-25T00:00:00Z
  • Store vært og beliggenhed.

    Ethan2019-04-04T00:00:00Z
  • Vi nød virkelig vores ophold i Dublin. Dardo lejlighed er endnu pænere end det ser ud i billeder og var spotlessly clean. Lejligheden er inden for nem gåafstand af næsten alt af interesse. Dardo var virkelig hjælpsomme og venlige før og under vores ophold. Vil absolut anbefale.

    "The Hide" is a cosy, handcrafted cabin nestled on a slope on our property with stunning views towards Glenveagh National Park. Just fifteen minutes drive from The Wild Atlantic Way makes The Hide ideal for a peaceful retreat or a great base for exploring Donegal.
    The cabin is a cosy, self contained space, designed and made by Pete to make the most of our beautiful mountain views. We have both enjoyed decorating the space with as many handcrafted, reclaimed and up-cycled items as possible. As you enter The Hide you will find a wood burning stove in the centre of the cabin, alcove double bed with curtains and blinds to the right and a small bathroom behind the bed. A couch against the centre back wall allows guests to avail of the fire and the tranquil views through the double doors onto the deck. To the left is the kitchen area with a four ring electric hob, combined oven, grill and microwave and fridge with freezer compartment. Guests have access to a washing machine and dryer in a nearby outbuilding. The space is heated by the wood-burning stove with fuel provided. The private decked area with seating, table and barbecue is to the front. Guest access is via a private gravel path behind our own traditional cottage which leads to the cabin. If The Hide is unavailable for the dates you are interested in, please check out our other listings. The Cow Shed is a little converted byre at the opposite end of our house from the cabin. The Birdbox is our little handcrafted treehouse nestled in mature trees behind The Cow Shed.
    We are centrally located in a beautiful part of Donegal, close to most of its attractions. The cabin is nestled in a valley 3 km from the scenic village of Fintown. The river Finn is known widely for its salmon and trout fishing and permits are available locally for fly-fishing. In Fintown village, you will find the only operational narrow gauge railway in Donegal. It runs for 5 km beside Lough Finn, which is overlooked by Aghla and Scraig mountains. The local village has a shop, pubs, church, school, health centre and library. The towns of Glenties, Dungloe, Ballybofey and Letterkenny are 15 minutes, 15 minutes, 25 minutes and 30 minutes drives respectively. There you will find restaurants, pubs and supermarkets. There are many stunning beaches within a 30 minute drive, offering beautiful walks and a choice of sports such as kayaking, surfing, golf and horse-riding, all of which we can help you to organise.
  • Virkelig nød vores ophold på denne dejlige ejendom. Det er så fredeligt og en god flugt fra alt. Pete og Anna var strålende værter og tjekker os ind med alt hvad vi havde brug for og efterlod os at nyde vores ophold. Vi nød at læse ved ilden og kigge ud over den utrolige udsigt. Vi vil helt sikkert være tilbage!

    Catherine2019-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • Pete og Anna's hytte er et meget behageligt og hyggeligt rum i smukke og rolige omgivelser. Det var rart at afbryde forbindelsen og slappe af i et par dage. Der er så lidt lysforurening, jeg kan forestille mig, at det ville have en smuk udsigt over nattehimlen (forudsat at der ikke er skyer eller fuldmåne). Pete mødte os, da vi ankom og var meget venlige og havde nogle tip om steder i nærheden. Vi nød virkelig vores ophold her og vil bestemt anbefale det, hvis du leder efter et fredeligt par dage.

    Gilbert2019-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • Pete og Annas hytte er smuk. Anna var utroligt indbydende og er en stor vært. Udsigten fra kabinen er fantastisk; vi så endda vilde hjorte i markerne umiddelbart foran kabinen. Vi vender bestemt tilbage igen.

    Christopher2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • Vi havde vidunderlige efterårsdage her på 'skindet'. Udsigten er utroligt, og selve sommerhuset er super hyggeligt med dejlige detaljer, der får dig til at føle dig hjemme. Der er ikke behov for wifi her, når du kan sidde ved bålet og se på naturen fra sengen! Vi elskede alle de bøger, brætspil og iPod, der var tilgængelig!

    Carina2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • Dejlig hytte i Donegal. Et sted at komme væk fra det hele.

    Paula2019-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • Pete og Anna's plads var enestående på alle måder. Selve pladsen var smukt udført og så hyggelig. Vi vil aldrig glemme en sådan smuk udsigt og elskede at vågne op til bjergene. Hvis vi kunne flytte ind for evigt, ville vi gøre det. Tak skal du have!

    Leila2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Vidunderlig indkvartering. Udsigten er uovervindelig ... Vi følte os meget behagelige der. Pete og Anna er meget hjælpsomme og super flot ... og giver også gode tip til vandreture eller bilture ...

    Monika2019-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • Dette sted er en perle. Fantastisk beliggenhed og udsigt. Meget godt udstyret med alt hvad du har brug for, inklusive ordentlig kaffe og en ipod med melodier :)

  • Smukt sted til en afslappende tid væk. Absolut et godt sted at komme væk fra trængsel i byen. Vi elskede at sidde ved ilden, nippe til vin, læse en af de mange bøger og se på udsigten! Kunne ikke anbefale stærkt nok. Selvom det bare er en note, at hvis du er høj, har du måske lidt problemer med at rejse dig op i badeværelset og i soveværelset! Vi er hobbitstore, så det generede os ikke :)

    Jenny2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • 'Ko-skuret' er unikt og rustikt. Det er omgivet af et smukt landskab og er et fantastisk sted at bruge som en base for at udforske området Donegal County. Anna var så meget hjælpsom, hensynsfull og omsorgsfuld. Vi elskede vores ophold og var kede af at forlade roen i deres dejlige opholdssted.

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

  • Sådan en sød lille sted! Barry var så rart! Han startede en brand, da vi ankom, ventede på os i vejen for at hjælpe os med at finde det søde lille hus. Anbefales for virkelig at få opleve en sød lille by i Irland. Den pub, han anbefalede, var så god, at vi gik tilbage to gange!

    Jacqueline2019-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • Vi havde for nylig et to overnatninger på Pops Dream og blev øjeblikkeligt forelsket i stedet. De idylliske omgivelser var smukke og naustet selv hyggeligt og behageligt. Barry holdt os også godt på brænde og var sådan en dejlig vært.

    Jocelyn2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Barrys sted er et absolut sjældent fund. Du er i kontakt med naturen, men en smuk gåtur væk fra en dejlig by fuld af store mennesker. Du vågner op fra en hyggelig seng, og når du åbner øjnene, og den første ting, du ser, er bare et perfekt postkort. Huset er dekoreret på en smuk og unik måde, og rummet er blevet brugt på den mest effektive måde, jeg kunne forestille mig. Hvis dette sted skal være fantastisk om sommeren, kan jeg fortælle jer, at om vinteren bliver det perfekte sted til en romantisk og afslappende ferie. Helt glad for hver eneste smule af det, vi kommer tilbage!

    Emily2019-11-26T00:00:00Z

  • Smuk beliggenhed. Fredelig og rolig. Quirky kabine med en fantastisk udsigt over søen - det er den første ting, du ser, når du vågner om morgenen og danner baggrund for hele opholdet. Vidunderlige værter - tankevækkende og opmærksomme. Perfekt til en afslappende tilbagetog weekend. Stærkt anbefale.

    Amie2019-11-17T00:00:00Z

Gratis parkering lige udenfor og alle bekvemmeligheder du kunne have brug for i nærheden (købmand for at holde måltider billige eller restaurant til et godt måltid) Fidelma har alt, hvad du eventuelt kunne have brug for i sommerhuset og havde fantastisk kommunikation hele vejen igennem. Tøv ikke med at booke hos hende, hvis vi befinder os i Irland igen.

    Dan2019-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Et godt sted at undslippe støj fra det centrale Dublin, og du er stadig kun 10 minutters taxa væk.

    Alex2019-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • En fantastisk lille find. Vi elskede virkelig opholder sig lidt ud af Center-meget mere støjsvage og bedre værdi for pengene! Taxier til byen er ikke dyre. Hytte var dejlige og rene. Alle de ting, du kunne have brug for som te og kaffe. Dejlige hånd ligesom at have dvd'er og spil og ting i levende område. Følte virkelig hjemlig. Masser gør i det lokale område - vi havde en rigtig pakket få dage! Fidelma (selvom vi ikke mødte) var utroligt hjælpsomme, minder os om der er en varmelegeme, hvis vi bliver kolde og giver tip om taxier osv. Vil virkelig anbefale opholder sig her, vi ville elske at komme igen!

    Emily2019-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Fidelma var en fremragende vært. Hun fik hjemmet til at føle sig hjemme. Hun havde et hæfte af fantastiske tips til os og sørget for at vi havde alt, hvad vi havde brug for! Jeg vil helt klart anbefale hende til min familie og venner og bruge hendes hytte igen i fremtiden!

    Kelsi2019-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Sød lille hytte! Det var den perfekte størrelse for os to og havde alt, hvad vi havde brug for. Netflix inkluderet og en flok dvd'er at vælge imellem for en hyggelig nat i. Vi fik mange tips fra Fidelma om store lokale steder at spise og besøge. Det var nemt at komme ind i centrum Dublin med en masse buskommunikation i området. Det var en dejlig forandring at vågne op til at synge fugle rater end biler, der hylder i byen. Alt sammen var vi meget glade for at blive her og vil anbefale det til alle! Tak Fidelma for sådan et dejligt ophold!

    Emelie2019-02-19T00:00:00Z

Vi bragte hendes pack-n-play og der var stadig nok plads til os alle! Sommerhuset var usædvanligt ren og havde så mange små hånd at gøre os komfortable! Hvis nogensinde i Dublin igen, vi vender tilbage! Tak fordi du har os!

    Stone walled self catering cottage, secluded, great views, excellent walks, close to Arklow and Wicklow towns. An hour from Dublin, Queen size bed and double sleeper couch,separate bathroom, kitchen/living room.Remote location, wifi available.
    Spacious, well equipped, authentic old stone cottage, ( circa 1640's). Two levels. Outside deck/patio area. Separate bedroom and bathroom area. Log stove.
    The location is remote, no street lights or passing traffic... The quietness at night is unique. The rising sun in the east over the Irish sea is clearly visible from the deck area. The stars at night are magnificent in the clear winter skies. We love the solitude and feeling of space the location provides.
  • Granary er en stor hytte med fantastisk udsigt over det irske landskab og naturen. Du vil se masser af dyreliv i markerne. Sanchia er en stor vært! Spørg hende om tips om hvor man skal hen i området, og hilse på hendes søde hunde!

Fra brændeovnen til den charmerende kitty og maleriske udsigt - hver dag var mindeværdig der, og vi kan ikke vente med at besøge igen! Tak for at have gjort dette til en sådan fantastisk tur for os!

  • Placeringen af hytten er fantastisk, og selve hytten er absolut uplettede. Det er utroligt varmt og hyggeligt og meget fredeligt. Triona og Rory er fremragende værter og var til enhver tid tilgængelige for spørgsmål. Jeg kunne ikke anbefale dem stærkt nok.

    Odette2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Smukt sommerhus med fantastiske omgivelser. Vi kom ned for en afslappende weekend, før vi vendte tilbage til arbejde efter juleferien, og det var meget mere end hvad vi forventede. Huset i sig selv er udstyret med vores alt fra torv, wifi, køkkenfaciliteter til shampoo og en hårtørrer; vi havde brug for intet. Vi ankom sent, og Triona havde branden tændt for os ved ankomsten, da vejret var forfærdeligt. Udsigten fra sommerhuset er betagende. Vi gik op ad bakkerne, og billederne gør det ikke nogen retfærdighed. Vi overvejede ikke at forlade vi elskede det så meget. Vi har allerede talt om at vende tilbage. Triona var en fremragende vært, og kommunikationen var 110%. Tak så meget for sådan et dejligt ophold, vi kan ikke vente med at vende tilbage

  • Oplevelsen ændrer sig aldrig. Altid fantastisk. Tak for et lille stykke ro i en hektisk verden.

  • Vi havde et vidunderligt ophold i Triona & Rorys smukke hjem, som er i den mest vidunderlige placering. Det er perfekt placeret & spotlessly ren. Vores værter var meget hjælpsomme med lokale tip, og jeg ved helt sikkert, at vi vil besøge igen!

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

  • Peters slot er en utrolig oplevelse !! Vi elskede det!

    Steven2019-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • Hvis denne plads er tilgængelig, skal du booke den med det samme. Dette var vores mest interessante og dejlige bolig på vores tur. Peter og Eva er dejlige. Peter er en kunstner i ordets sande forstand, og hans talent og vision afsløres rundt om hvert hjørne. Stedet er fyldt med specielle unikke detaljer. Hvilken fantastisk oplevelse.

    Dawn2019-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • Ophold i Peters slott er en oplevelse, du aldrig finder andre steder. Vi elskede vores ophold. Hvis du nogensinde har lejlighed til at tilbringe en nat der bare gør det. Det er en hukommelse, du har for evigt. Pete er en fantastisk vært!

    Suzann2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • Peter og Eva er de mest fantastiske værter og vil transportere dig til et eventyrland i deres vidunderlige slot! Dette er ikke kun et sted at bo, det er en hel oplevelse! Jeg har opholdt sig i et par slotte, og denne føles langt den mest autentiske, samtidig med at jeg tilbyder alle de moderne bekvemmeligheder, du kan bede om. Hvis du er heldig, kan du muligvis tilbringe en eftermiddag med Peter høre hans fascinerende historier og måske dele videoer af hans "koncerter på trappen". Mange af hans tidligere gæster har været ret talentfulde kunstnere og har delt deres gaver i det vidunderlige akustiske rum i et gammelt slotspiral trapperum, fanget til eftertiden. Hvis du kan synge eller spille et instrument, så spørg, om du kan være en del af denne elitegruppe. Under alle omstændigheder, hvis dette sted er tilgængeligt, BESTIL DET. Du vil ikke fortryde dit ophold ....

    Molly2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • Dejlige afslappede mennesker og roligt, behageligt og afslappende sted. Bange for at anbefale incase vil det blive booket næste gang jeg prøver at besøge. Tak pete og eva

    Edward2019-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • Det er virkelig svært at finde et sted at starte! Peter har gjort et enestående job med at gendanne dette slot fra murbrokkerne. Jeg vil aldrig glemme dette ophold og vil opfordre enhver enkelt person til at bo her, hvis man er i Irland. Dette ophold var ærligt min favoritdel af vores tur til Irland. Anyway, slottet er hinsides perfekt. Der er rindende vand, opvarmning med fantastiske pejse, gode faciliteter og en atmosfære, der er helt i top! Peter er en af de største AirBNB-værter, vi nogensinde har mødt. Hans pleje af hver gæst går ikke glip af et beat. Side note: Dette slot har muligvis ikke en sten langt mere elegant end Blarney Stone. Skål!

    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!

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

  • Havde en vidunderlig tid, hvis du er ude efter fred og ro og afslapning er dette det perfekte sted. Bare elskede komfuret gjorde det så hyggeligt. Smukke æg og brunt brød leveret fra irma. Vi kom med tog og irma indsamlede os og bragte os tilbage til stationen, da vores tur var ovre over hendes gæstfrihed var fantastisk. Vender bestemt tilbage til denne lille skive af himlen igen en dag.

    Sharon2019-12-16T00:00:00Z

    João2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Vi kan ikke vente med at komme tilbage hit - hvad en smuk plads til at tilbringe en rolig afslappende par dage. Irma var så indbydende og venlig og dejlige hjemlige røre (tak for det friske bagt brød!) Dejlige lokale gåture også og intet at høre undtagen fugle og kyllinger.

    Jessica2019-12-04T00:00:00Z

    Niccolò2019-11-05T00:00:00Z
  • Dette er et dejligt sted at omfavne fred omgivet af en smuk natur. Ovnen giver en meget romantisk atmosfære, og Irma byder os velkommen med frisk brød og smør.

  • Bekvemmeligheder var fremragende. Donna og hendes mand var utroligt hyggelige og hjælpsomme i alle vores samtaler. Rummet er bekvemt placeret tæt på lufthavnen i et dejligt roligt kvarter. Det var rent og godt indrettede. Det var vores foretrukne sted vi opholdt sig i vores britiske tur.

    Christy2018-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • Stedet var fantastisk og perfekt til hvad vi havde brug for. Rent og hyggeligt og godt prissat. Nem bus rute til centrum. Medbring skift til bussen, selvom de kun accepterer korrekte ændringer. Vil helt klart anbefale.

    Tom2018-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Donnas sted var super sødt. Det var perfekt for os, vi måtte stå op meget tidligt for at komme til lufthavnen, og det var super tæt på lufthavnen. Hun havde forladt varer til morgenmad for os og alt var rart og rent. Vi vil helt klart anbefale Donna sted at bo.

    Lezli2018-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Donnas sted var fantastisk! Hun var super fleksibel med os til check-in, og da vi kom der var hendes forældre der for at byde os velkommen. Hendes sted var super ren, det havde fantastiske bekvemmeligheder, noget vi ønskede eller behov, det var meget komfortabel og tæt på lufthavnen, som var virkelig vigtigt for vores ophold den nat. Jeg vil meget anbefale opholder sig på hendes sted. Jeg var meget imponeret.

    Grace2017-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • Meget komfortabel og stille lejlighed bag et privat hjem, der ligger meget tæt på Dublin lufthavn. Det var endda dekoreret til jul under vores december ophold! Der var masser af tankevækkende hånd ligesom æg i køleskabet og frisk brød. Donna guidede os også til Cock og Bull for et godt aftensmad. Et af de bedste steder vi opholdt sig i på vores tur!

    Doreen2017-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • Jeg nød grundigt mit ophold i denne lejlighed. Jeg blev mødt af Donas forældre, som gav mig nøglen. De var varme, venlige og hjælpsomme. Lejligheden i sig selv er moderne, frisk, lyse og ulasteligt rene. Det er indrettet til en høj standard. Det irske sodavand, samt te- og kaffefaciliteterne var velkomne. Sengen var usædvanligt behagelig. Jeg nød en god nats søvn. Donna var en fornøjelse at håndtere, og havde en afslappet men lydhør kommunikationsstil. Jeg har ingen tøven ok ingen anbefale denne lejlighed, og jeg har til hensigt at blive der igen når behovet opstår.

    John2017-12-17T00:00:00Z

    Emmanuel2017-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • Billederne til Donna sted på air bnb gør ikke retfærdighed til hvordan smukke, moderne & SPOTLESS ren det var virkelig !! Selvom vi ikke mødte Donna, var hendes forældre lige der for alt, hvad vi havde brug for, og de lod os endda holde vores poser i deres personlige hjem for dagen på grund af vores sene fly, kommunikation var også fejlfri. Lejligheden kom med fantastisk lille frynsegoder, som gjorde opholdet meget cozier (æg, mælk, brød, & stearinlys! Osv.) Vil meget anbefale dette sted til enhver fremtidige venner eller familie rejser til Dublin! Tak så meget igen til Donna & hendes familie !!

    Dublin 17, County Dublin, Irland

    Recently awarded 'Most Unique Listing in Ireland' by Airbnb! This cabin is nestled in a tranquil woodland setting, with uninterrupted panoramic views over Lough Derg all the way to the Sliabh Aughty hills in Galway. The cabin is far away from busy roads and street lights and is a haven of birdsong, starry nights and spectacular sunsets with "one of the best views we have ever woken up to". Fully equipped with kitchen, bathroom and lofted bedroom; and is suitable for all seasons.
    You have a seperate entrance and car parking facility. We live adjacent to the cabin but it is not overlooked. The cabin was designed and built by Stephen (a master carpenter) who was inspired by the 'Tiny Homes Movement' which advocates living simply on a smaller scale. It is built from locally sourced timber, is fully insulated and has low voltage led lighting; all designed to increase sustainability and minimise the environmental impact. Although small in scale, the cabin contains everything you could need for a perfect holiday experience.
    This area is far from the busy tourist trails and is a well-kept secret haven of natural beauty. However, our central location means you are only an hour from the 'Wild Atlantic Way' and less than two hours from Dublin.
  • Vi har været i denne søhytte i løbet af de sidste 3 dage, og alt vi kan sige er: fabelagtig. Stephen indsamlet os og bragte os fra Nenagh til hans sted, fordi vi ikke havde nogen bil, og i stedet for at betale for en taxa havde han den fantastiske detalje at bringe os med ham. Han tog os også til supermarkedet lørdag og i dag bragte hans dejlige kone os igen til byen. Jeg ved ikke, hvilken slags mennesker der ville have gjort det for os, men vi må bare sige, at vi er glædeligt. Kabinen er som en drøm. Romantisk og med en fantastisk udsigt. Tak en million for at gøre disse dage uforglemmeligt! DU FORSKER MERE END FIVE STJERNER!

    Paula2019-03-31T00:00:00Z
  • Kabinen er simpelthen fantastisk! Du har en vidunderlig udsigt over Lough Derg og vi så en af de smukkeste solnedgange vi nogensinde har set. Huset er lille, men har alt man behøver fra et meget rent badeværelse til et lille madlavningssted og en seng i øverste etage med udsigt over søen. Steve var en meget flink vært, kommunikation hurtig og hjælpsom og check-in / check-out ukompliceret. Jeg kan absolut anbefale denne hytte.

    Christian2019-03-28T00:00:00Z

    Ciaran2019-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Vi elskede vores ophold på Stephens sted, smukke visninger og meget fredeligt. Ønske vi kunne har opholdt sig længere!

    Cynthia2019-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Min ven og jeg havde sådan en vidunderlig tur! Kabinen var uplettede og hyggelige. Udsigten over søen og hestene var fantastisk. Tak til Stephen for at sikre, at vi havde alt, hvad vi havde brug for. Jeg vil anbefale denne hytte til næsten enhver, vi havde en dejlig tid.

    Jesse2019-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Vi har haft to dejlige dage i Coolbaun. Huset er så klogt i design og indstillingen er ud over smukke. Stephen var der ved ankomsten og gav os masser af tips om steder at besøge. Vi vil meget anbefale nogen opholder sig her for en tilflugtssted. Vi vil helt sikkert være tilbage. Malene og Enda.

    Malene2019-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Vi har haft fredelige 3 dage i hyggelig indkvartering. Kunne ikke bede om noget mere, hvis du vil tage en pause i naturen.

    Folan’s Cottage is a beautiful architecturally designed holiday home that was rebuilt in 2010 from two ruined stone cottages. It is only a few meters from a wonderful quiet sandy beach, with views of the Twelve Bens and across the ocean to the Arann Islands. The setting is magical and remote with just rabbits, sheep and Connemara ponies as your neighbours.
    (The calendar that shows availability is correct and kept up to date. Please don't enquire for unavailable weeks. Use the CONTACT HOST option for general enquiries.

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

  • vi havde et godt ophold på tonys hytte, vi kunne godt lide den nice, rolige atmosfære og han og hans kone var virkelig hjælpsomme med alle beskrivelser og anbefalinger via airbnb.really nice og venlige værter. naturen på beara halvøen var smuk. vi elskede vores vandretur på dursey island! sarah og alina

    Sarah2019-04-25T00:00:00Z
  • Dette er en engang !! Det er et sted at blive husket altid. Det er en livsstil, mange ville misundelse boet af to dejlige mennesker, der deler deres rum så generøst og diskret. Fuld af vidunderlige kunst og interessante bøger er det spartansk endnu hjemlig. Et fantastisk sted at tour Beara halvøen.

    Stella2019-04-20T00:00:00Z
  • Tony og Carolines sted er absolut smukt! Indstillingen, visning, komfort og fred var alt ud over vores forventninger. Det var let en af de bedste dage / nætter i vores Irland ferie. Selv om det kan være lidt af et eventyr at finde, er det værd at gøre. Anbefales til alle, der besøger Ring of Beara!

    Ann2019-04-17T00:00:00Z
  • En af de bedste airbnb ophold vi nogensinde har haft. Området var smukt og chalet var et perfekt touch. Fantastisk stil. Kan ikke vente med at blive igen.

  • En god aften og en dejlig oplevelse! Denne øko chalet er en lille himmel, vi følte virkelig som hjemme. Jeg anbefaler! Tak Tony;)

  • Bedste Airbnb jeg nogensinde har haft !!! Dette træhus vil blæse dig væk - vi havde den mest fantastiske tid. Det er meget privat og har alt hvad du behøver - vi var så imponerede over konstruktionen, bekvemmelighederne og de små hånd, der gjorde dette sted til at føle sig som hjemme. Richard var så hjælpsomme med hans anbefalinger og lokale tips. Du skal bo her hvis du kommer til Cork !!!

    Grace2018-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • Sikke et fantastisk sted at bo! Vi havde aldrig troet, vi ville blive i et træhus. Det var rent, smukt indrettede og havde en fantastisk udsigt. Richard er helt sikkert dygtig til at have skabt et sådant sted. Dette er et must-stay Airbnb-oplevelse.

    Christina & Mark2018-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • Treehouse var alt, hvad vi havde forestillet sig, det ville være .. det var bare magisk! Richard var en fantastisk vært og var der for at hilse os selvom vi ankom senere end forventet. Visningen fra indkvartering var utroligt; vi fik se hele byen Cork lyset om natten! Vi var lige blevet forlovet den dag, og det var en fantastisk måde at tilbringe vores første aften engageret :) Vi håber en dag at komme tilbage og blive længere !! Tak, Richard! Alison + Dano.

    Ali2018-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • Dette er et fantastisk og unikt sted at bo med byen lige uden for døren, du kunne ikke bede om mere fra en afslappende pause væk

    Paul2018-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • Vidunderligt sted. Jeg vil tilbage !!!!

    Marion2018-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • Richards sted er den ultimative træhuspakke! Vi vidste, at det ville være køligt, men WOW, det overgik seriøst vores forventninger. Visningen, let gåafstand til byen, comfy seng, små hånd, moderne faciliteter (Wifi! I et treehouse!) Og de varme croissanter om morgenen - sådan en drøm. Vi havde den mest afslappede weekend og kom hjem til at føle sig opdateret. Dette er absolut det bedste sted at bo i Cork. Jeg er faktisk chokeret, jeg har ikke set dette sted på en liste over Irlands bedste Airbnbs! En ting, der bør bemærkes: Badeværelset er på en anden etage end soveværelset, du skal bruge trapper og gå udenfor for at komme til det. Det regnede og vi fandt det ikke et problem (tag en jakke og brug de flip flops leveret!) Men i vintermånederne eller dage, hvor der er voldsom regn, kan det være ret gener. Bare noget at huske på!

    Alyse2018-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Lidt vanskelig at finde - men når du er i den største AirBnB finder du det. Mere end nok plads til 2, super privat, 5 minutter fra alt det sjove i Cork. Det er perfekt, unikt og en flugt fra byen uden at skulle gå. Morgenmad var fantastisk - varm croissanter leveret af remskive. Endelig var Richard utroligt venlig, indsigtsfuld og gav masser af gode ting at gøre. BLIV HER!!!!

    Eric2018-08-09T00:00:00Z
  • Træhuset er fantastisk, mange dejlige tankevækkende detaljer. Vi var heldige med vejret, men vi kan forestille os, at det kun er halvt så godt i regnen. Især fordi badeværelset (super eftertænksom) kun er tilgængelig udefra. Downtown Cork er inden for gåafstand.

  • Vi havde en god tid i studiet af Claudia og Dany. Claudia var meget lydhør over for vores meddelelser. Studiet er meget veludstyret, og ret godt placeret (20 minutter fra centrum). Der er også et supermarked ved siden af busstoppestedet, som er ret praktisk. Vi anbefaler uden tøven! Tak igen for dette ophold =)

  • Super små boliger meget veludstyrede og pletfri! Vi havde ikke en chance for at møde vores værter, men alt er så godt forklaret, at det ikke generede os. Nærhed til bussen og et lille supermarked: top!

    Valérie2017-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • Claudia og Dany var meget flinke og hurtige med svar. Claudia forlod os detaljerede instruktioner om indcheckning og udtjekning. De havde også en busscheudule udskrivet samt andre kort og ture i Dublin. Lejligheden generelt er defiantly præfekt for to personer, med et hyggeligt badeværelse og tekøkken. Vi elskede vores ophold og definalty anbefaler opholder sig med Claudia og Dany.

    Sadie2017-09-23T00:00:00Z

    "The Swallow's Nest" – A unique and thoughtfully renovated stone shed which accommodates up to two people and offers a completely peaceful and relaxing break in the hills of Donegal. Private entrance and secluded location. Available for single nights between two existing bookings. Please enquire.
    “The best place to sleep in Donegal." Eli Gothill The Swallow's Nest So named after the swallows which nested here year upon year until renovation work started in October 2014, this compact and tastefully renovated accommodation started life as a humble cow byre. It is approximately 200 years old, and stands apart from the main cottage with its own private driveway, entrance and deck. It overlooks a grassy meadow dotted with sheep. The unit consists of one central living space with kitchen area, simple furniture and a bathroom. The king size bed is up on a sleeping mezzanine which affords spectacular views over the meadow and hills beyond. Heating is from a wood-burning stove with small portable radiant heater for occasional use. The kitchen comprises a sink, gas hob, small electric oven and fridge. The Swallow's Nest is essentially for couples and offers a truly romantic and peaceful retreat - somewhere where you can literally ‘shed your life' and relax. It is unsuitable for children and infants because of several safety concerns, such as the height of the mezzanine. It comes with all linen, towels, basic toiletries, freshly baked scones and some cooking essentials. The basket of scones, butter and jam are a welcome gift and are not supplied on a daily basis, unless requested and for a small extra charge. A towel refresh/drying service is offered for those guests staying longer than a few days.
    I live in a secluded and private location with complete tranquility, yet am surrounded by very caring and helpful neighbours. This sort of sums up Donegal : peace where you want it and help when needed. Add to this the stunning coast line and mountains, walking opportunities and great wealth of traditional music, the pubs and their people and you have a place I call home. - a little slice of heaven.
  • Vi havde en fantastisk 3 nat ophold på Swallows Nest. Allaye er en vidunderlig vært, der byder dig velkommen med åbne arme - Rådgivning var nessicary men også efterlader dig til dine egne enheder. Meget komfortabel, hyggelig indkvartering - det varmer hurtigt op med den dejlige brændeovn. Hun organiseret en ridetur med hendes ven Geraldine for os - og vi kan anbefale dette hele heartedly! Det er meget sjældent du ride to sådanne fantastiske steeds på en trail ride. Vi ønskede at tage Rosie & Diesel hjem med os! Geraldine gjort os føles som del af familien, og vi vil være tilbage :)

    Laura2017-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Allaye var sådan en vidunderlig vært! Hun var der glæder os med lækre hakkekød tærter i hendes smukke lille hytte, der er som noget fra et eventyr. Omkringliggende områder var meget malerisk, og der er store ture og eventyr lige uden for døren.

    Kevin2017-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Allaye var en meget indbydende vært, der har ild ved ankomst og lækre varme scones klar til os at fortære! Huset er stor - meget unik og hyggelig, og indstillingen er lige så smuk. Trods det er vinter, ovnen let opvarmet stedet og det var forbavsende komfortable.

    Darren2017-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Allaye gjort os føler afslappet og godt tilpas fra det øjeblik vi ankom, stolene i med lækre friskbagte scones glæder os. Hun har rammende kaldt denne lille bygning 'den svalerede «, som perfekt afspejler den meget specielle hyggelige og rustikke føler, at det har. Selv om det var en dyb vinter ophold for os, den franske komfur betød, at vi var altid varmt, nogle gange endda for varmt! Placeringen er inden for nem kørselsafstand af gode strande og dramatisk natur, og kun en kort køretur (ned en smal vej) fra Glenties, hvor der er en slagter, god købmand, en dejlig restaurant og hotel. Som notering nævner, ejerens familie hjem er lige bag indkvartering, og vi blev gjort føler velkommen til at give Allaye et råb, hvis vi havde brug for noget (som vi gjorde ikke, som vi fandt alt, hvad vi har brug for blev leveret). Det har stadig en privat føler selv, og en smuk panoramaudsigt fra mezzaninen dobbeltseng. Allaye anbefalinger var meget hjælpsomme. Vi havde besøgt området et par gange før, men hendes foreslåede tur lykkedes at påpege et par lokale skønhedspletter, vi havde ingen idé om eksisterede! Bygningen er smukt og nænsomt renoveret og vi vil helt sikkert anbefale The svalerede til andre par & enkeltpersoner søger at bruge lidt tid 'væk fra det hele' i denne smukke del af Donegal.

    Nicola2016-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • Jeg havde en vidunderlig ophold i svalerede. Hyggelig, isoleret, rolig-alt det nødvendige for en romantisk weekend eller for en enlig rejsende, der søger nogle resten fra en travl livsstil. Allaye var en slags vært og forudsat alt for at gøre mig faldt velkommen. Jeg anbefaler stærkt opholder sig her.

    Aaron2016-12-17T00:00:00Z
  • Hvad er et fantastisk sted Allaye har. Det er roligt, afsondret og naturskønne. Hun er en fantastisk vært, og vi vil helt sikkert besøger her i fremtiden.

    Austin2016-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastiske! Vi elskede det så meget, kan ord ikke beskrive !!! Swallows sommerhus er præfekt, unik, romantisk, en til at komme tilbage til. Vil anbefale det til nogen, book det nu. Allaye er en dejlig vært så dejligt at have log brænderen på venter os. Tak så meget for vores ophold
