The Space

We have lovingly restored this charming 100 year old cottage nestled in the foothills of the Dublin mountains. Originally built 1910 we have created a wonderful modern and airy living space with old and new combined. It consists of 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms (1 en-suite) a large modern open plan living/ Kitchen/Dining area, a large garden and also a private decked outdoor space. The house is equipped with a modern German kitchen, a utility room with washer/Dryer. Fitted wardrobes in 1 bedroom and a walk in closet in the master suite.
We have kept some of the original features of the house including the old brick fireplace in the master bedroom. There are wood floors throughout. At Laurel Cottage not only will you have the beautiful interior, the cottage also boasts spectacular views of Dublin city. It is located on Stocking Lane only 5 miles from the city centre of Dublin but minutes from all the best mountain trails that the Dublin mountains has to offer, including Massey's Wood, Hellfire Wood, Pine Forest, Tibradden Wood and Larch Hill. All local amenities are 5 minutes drive or about 20 mins walk away (including shops, pubs, churches etc....) The public transport available is the Dublin Bus 15B route ( bus stop 1 minute walk away) which runs mostly every half hour. Located 5 mins drive from the M50 Dublin ring road so the cottage has easy access to everywhere in Dublin( Dundrum town Centre 15 mins, Airport 20 mins, City 20 mins) . This is a unique property and guaranteed to provide a unique experience by being able to enjoy all the benefits of the city aswell as experiencing country living. This house suits all types and we can try to accommodate whatever sleeping needs that you might have. The master suite has a King bed and the other room has a double. It is also a great home for hosting a gathering or party !

  • This cottage was the perfect starting point for a wonderful holiday in Ireland. The cottage is beautiful - very modern inside with all of the amenities we needed. Emma was a true delight! She was so helpful and friendly. She gave us very good food for breakfast and was helpful in giving us advice on where to go with our family, how to manage the bus transportation, etc. a great experience!

  • It really is beautiful!

    The cottage definitely has the wow factor - Emma has done an amazing job with it. We stayed for two weeks while our own home was under repair and Emma was absolutely fantastic in welcoming us and dealing with any questions we had during our stay. Nothing was too much trouble.

    Living in the area myself, the cottage really is in a nice location with good access to shops, parks, forest trails, etc. It is also very close to the M50 which would be great if you were driving from the airport.

    The cottage was clean and comfortable and we really enjoyed our stay there. Thank you Emma!

  • What a beautiful house with a wonderful host! We loved our stay at Emmas cottage. Laurel cottage is very well situated close to the City center as well as Dublin's beautiful countryside. It is family-friendly, very spacious and very tastefully decorated. Everything to feel at home abroad :-)
    Emma was very friendly and gave us a lot of helpful informations and gave us a warm welcome including a fantastic welcome basket with lots of useful and tasty things!
    We can recommend this location to everyone.

  • Beautiful and spacious cottage perched on a hilltop overlooking Dublin. Hard to imagine a more perfect location for exploring both the city and the countryside by rental car. For going downtown, we took the 15B bus (30 minute ride to Trinity College) to avoid parking hassles.

    Emma was a gracious host: she even stocked the fridge with breakfast items for our first day. Wonderful!

    Be sure to hike the Hellfire Club just up the road.

  • This is a home away from home, The house has big open spaces, tastefully furnished with everything you need. Absolutely loved our stay here. Emma is the perfect host she met us with a welcoming smile and an essentials pack, nice touch, wish all airbnb would do this as if you arrive late you have what you need until you get to shop.
