A tastefully furnished period house (built around 1900), in a quiet cul-de-sac, two miles from the city centre.
There are two bedrooms available, each suitable for one or two people. Groups of four can be accommodated - there is a listing for each of the rooms - similar photographs - and groups of four can be accommodated by booking both listings. Each room has a king size bed - which is exceptionally comfortable, The rooms are spacious and and very calm - ideal for relaxation and rest. All the furniture is period, but the room has a nice modern feel to it. They've both got lovely linens, and plenty of fresh towels.
Two bus routes serve the main road, which is just around the corner from the house - the 16 bus from Dublin Airport (the journey takes about 50 minutes) is one of the routes. and the same bus runs to the City Centre - 10 minute journey.
The City Centre (Grafton Street - Trinity College) is a 20min to a half hour walk from the house. Historic Dublin - St. Patrick's Cathedral, Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin Castle, Chester Beatty Library, National Gallery, are all within easy reach - either by bus route or walking.
I am involved with the Dublin International Piano Competition - an event that takes place every three years - so I'm deeply involved in offering stellar hospitality to international travellers and how to showcase the best that Dublin has to offer. I'm very aware of the standard and level of the comfort that people need while they're staying.
I offer breakfast - muesli, yoghurt, fresh homemade Irish brown bread, croissants, tea and coffee.
The sheltered sunny garden is a calm and restful place to have breakfast on a warm morning. One of the bedrooms looks over the garden.
I provide a full guide book on Dublin, including map, information about day trips to Glendalough, Galway and the Cliffs of Moher, Cork and Belfast. I can help with planning your time in Dublin, and I also assist in planning travel around Ireland.
Hair dryer / Docking station / WiFi / on street visitor parking.
In addition to the bedroom, Guests have access to the Kitchen for Breakfast - and access to the Garden.
Please be mindful of security and remember to double lock the front door when leaving the house. The door should also be locked at night.

Please refrain from putting luggage on the beds - luggage racks are provided in the bedrooms.
This is my home, and I enjoy it, and I hope you will too.
Bijou Mews was a very nice separate coach house and was very tastefully appointed. We appreciated that Adrienne picked us up from downtown and brought us to her place. The homemade bread was very much appreciated. Adrienne explained everything in detail and the neighbourhood was nice, close to buses and was within walking distance to many shops, restaurants, etc. The bed was not the most comfortable and some tips on how to control the heat would have been appreciated, though the hot water bottles were nice to have.
Terra - Thank you for your review. I am sorry that your parents found the bed uncomfortable - I have had the mattress changed and also the base enhanced. It is a pity you did not mention about the heating when your parents were staying at The Mews, as it would have been very easy and no problem to change the timer. However, overall I am glad they enjoyed their stay, Best wishes, Adriene
We had very good writing contact in advance and even when I arrived later than planned, she welcomed me the very pleasant and friendly way possible. Also Dara was a real pleasure to meet and talk to, both are fantastic hosts I can only but recommend :-) :-)
Arriving she advised me briefly about the accommodation and my room and even provided very useful hints and support for a good head start in Dublin.
Thank you thank you thank you :-)
Adrienne was a friendly host! She picked me up from the bus stop and served me breakfast and tea. She also gave me advice on bus routes. The house and the room were great. Very comfortable bed and pillows. Adrienne was also very quick to respond when I had questions. The neighborhood was a close (20 min) walk to the city center. The only issue was that the heater in my bedroom was having trouble, though Adrienne had a maintenance person look at it right away. I would recommend staying here for a nice place to come back to after seeing the city.
I had a wonderful stay here. Adrienne is a lovely, interesting and generous person and a wonderful host. She picked me up from the airport bus and was on hand for any advice I needed about seeing the city. The place was very comfy and I had a delicious breakfast provided too. I will definitely be recommending Adrienne and her properties to friends who are visiting Dublin and hope to return myself one day too. Thank you!
Adrienne was a very gracious host, and I very much enjoyed my stay in her house. She welcomed me in with a cup of tea and homemade bread, and had many suggestions about sights to see, places to eat, and how to get around prepared. The house is beautifully furnished and located in a quiet, residential neighborhood. I walked into the center of Dublin several times and found it easy and enjoyable, though not the shortest walk; when I didn't feel like walking, the bus that stops close to the house was very convenient--it runs to the city center, and beyond straight to Dublin Airport. Adrienne wasn't staying in the house while I was there, but she left the kitchen stocked with delicious homemade breads, jams, and yogurt, as well as several options for tea and coffee, which made for excellent breakfasts. I would love to get some of the recipes. I was there in early November; with the chilly nights, I appreciated the electric blanket on the bed. Over all it was a very pleasant place to stay and made me feel at home during my time in Dublin.

Adrienne is a native of Dublin, with a good knowlege of the city. I live in a great area, very near town. I am involved in many areas of life, used to interacting with people and love to host visitors. I have travelled extensively in France and Australia, as well as many other European countries, as well are travelling to New York and London regularly. I have a great interest in current affairs, music, and the theatre. Adrienne is involved in a number of committees and is on the Executive of the Dublin International Piano Competition,which takes place every three years. Young pianists from all over the world come to Dublin to compete in the Competition, and Adrienne works closely with the competitors during the two weeks of the Competition.
