About this listing
Architect-restored period house in leafy Goldsmith street, Dublin 7.
15mins walk to the city centre spire. 15mins drive to Dublin airport.
Ideally located for museums, shopping, parks and nightlife.
The house is a large red brick Victorian townhouse, 2 levels, with small gardens front and rear. We, the owners, live mainly on the upper level and rent out 2 bedrooms on the garden level.
The main bedroom available in this listing is large and airy with period features, 20m2 with high ceilings and a cast iron bed 1.4m wide.
There is a second bedroom similar in style to the larger and is 14m2, the bed is 1.2m wide. It's on offer for 35euro extra if there are more than 2 in your group or if 2 individuals want separate rooms. (If for either of the above reasons you want to use the second room, please book as 3 people).
The shower room is a modern design. There is also a modern kitchen and living room that you are welcome to use. All open out onto a private rear urban garden.
No doubt you'll be satisfied with this green and central location, and we're LGBT friendly.
Any space on the ground floor: the kitchen, living-dining, bathroom, and your bedroom of course.
Interaction with Guests
I will generally be in the house when guests are staying and in this case will be there to give advise or answer questions about the house and the local area. However my partner and I have our own bathroom, kitchen and living room on the upper level so we will give you your space.
Broadstone is a city centre neighborhood with a sleepy residential feel. We are about 15mins walking to the spire on O'Connell Street which marks the centre of the city. Here you will find the shopping high street as well as restaurants and nightclubs.
If you tire of shopping on nearby O'Connell street or the nightlife of Templebar, you will be glad of our Dublin 7 location. From here you can visit Francis Bacon's studio at the Hugh Lane Gallery, the magnificent Botanic Gardens, the Phoenix Park, or just stroll along the Royal Canal.
Although only 15mins walking to O'Connell Street there are many transport options:
