Highlights are: proximity to the city centre of Dublin and all it has to offer; Smithfield for all its attractions and a sunny bench watching the bird wildlife with a cup of coffee in Broadstone basin.

There is so much to do within minutes of the property including: Smithfield square (a 15 minute walk) with wonderful attractions like The Lighthouse Cinema and the wonderful Cobblestone Pub for traditional Irish music and a decent pint. The Third Space coffee shop here also does a great breakfast.

Fancy some fresh air? Stroll to the National Botanic Gardens (25 minute walk), the historic Glasnevin Cemetery (20 minute walk) or the Phoenix Park (30 minute walk) which boasts being the largest urban park in Europe!

If you are interested in art on your walk to the city centre you will pass the Hugh Lane gallery on Parnell Square which houses a wonderful collection of contemporary art, including Francis Bacon's relocated studio, definitely worth a visit.

Once you reach city centre the city is yours with plenty to do and see, great places to eat and drink. It's all yours to enjoy!

We really enjoyed our stay in Shamrock Street. The cottage is a lovely space and definitely cosy. The location is brilliant being walking distance to just about every where you need to be in Dublin. Claire and Jo gave us a lovely warm welcome and local information about where to go. We followed their recommendations and weren't disappointed.

I recently came here with two others for three nights in August during a trip across Europe. This was definitely one of the best Airbnb's that we stayed at during our trip. Claire and Jo were very accommodating and wonderful at giving us suggestions for where to go. The house itself is also quite spacious and has a lovely little terrace to sit at for breakfast. It's also about 15 minutes from the city center, so essentially everything is within walking distance. Highly recommended

This place was perfect for our Dublin plans. Claire was very understanding and accommodating with our flight plans. We were there for a race during our time in Dublin. It was easy to grab an Uber Taxi or flag down a taxi when needed. Otherwise, it is very walkable to the hotspots in the area. We walked a lot in the evening and felt completely safe. The neighborhood was very cute and quiet. We only wish that we visited the basin, that is located literally 2 minutes from cottage, more than once. We would definitely suggest this cottage for future visitors. It really made a lot of our plans hassle free!

Claire and Jo's place was great! Very spacious and tidy. They gave us great recommendations on some places to visit and even provided us with free parking permits for our car rental. The location is in a relatively quiet neighborhood. It's bit of a walk from the main attractions in central Dublin but a 5-10 min. cab ride can easily get you there. Overall a pleasant experience!

Claire met us at the house, despite us showing up earlier than expected, and was very welcoming. She gave us a city map and pointed out good restraunts and areas to go to. The house was great and fit three of us very comfortably. Overall we had a great time there and would recommend it to anyone.

Claire and Jo lived happily in Shamrock Street until they finally grew up and moved in with their other halves! We were born in Dublin and have a good knowledge of this great city which we love to share with guests to make their trip to Dublin a memorable one.

We have many happy memories of living in Shamrock Street and are happy to share this special place with you!
