very old Georgian house Very original with most of the character of the period when it was built. City Centre location, 10min walk =O'connell street( heart of dublin City), temple bar area( night life, pubs, restaurants= about 12 minutes walk)

The space

This house is very old and one of the first Georgian house built in Dublin. This house is unique, it has preserved order inside and outside the house because it has period plaster features in the ceiling on the ground floor, first floor, second floor and on top of the walls throughout the house, it has high ceiling, single glaze, Georgian, huge windows, the rooms are big, the Local council wants to preserve the house for its original period features and want to preserve absolutely everything about the house even things we may think would be better with modern materials. This house was in derelict condition 3 years ago, I have saved the house and spent a huge amount of money to present it in the condition it is to airbnb guests :

- New, very large main bathroom with great water pressure, big golden bath and great power showers with unlimited hot water on gas.

- New plumbing system offering unlimited hot water on gas 24 hours and in huge quantity ( 500 litres of very warm water tank), a pump has been installed to offer very powerful showers and a great pressure for drawing the water in the golden bath in the main bathroom in minutes.

- Gas central heating with new efficient gas boiler, costing on average around 25 euros/ night for a group of 10 guests. This is only an estimation, it could be a bit less or a bit more depending on hours used and on number of guests.
Warning : this house is huge with high ceiling and no isolation and big Georgian windows, GAS CENTRAL HEATING IS A MUST in the winter months and is necessary to warm the house 2 hours before your arrival to make your stay nice and pleasant.
Estimation of cost : 25 euros / night in the winter, half of that in the summer months.

- 16 kw Wood- burner in the kitchen/dining/ living area which makes the place very warm and homely. we provide wood at cost price ( 5.50 euros/ bag of wood). It makes the living/dining/ kitchen area very warm and creates a great atmosphere in the house for our guests. I offer to have it lighted 2 hours before our guests arrival.

- Central location ( 10 minutes walk to o'connell street: heart of Dublin) ; 15 minutes walk to temple bar; 5 minutes walk to the Guinness factory, 15 minutes walk to the huge Phoenix park (707 hectares) with the wild dears, the president house, the American ambassador house, the zoo....

- Convenient big place for big groups, we can welcome up to 15,17 guests on a sharing basis.
All the beds are new and the mattresses are very confortable, linen is new, fresh and clean, towels provided.

CONCLUSION :
The house is far from BEING PERFECT, BE WARNED. Nothing in the house is straight, nothing about the house is straightforward, the windows are from that time, every decision requires a specialist architect, this house is unique, full of characters. This house has been our house for the past 5 years, we have lived there very happily and love the fact that this house is a real life museum where our walls could tell you genuine stories of welcoming Irish people, farmers since as early as the 1700. I am now very happy opening our doors to AIRBNB GUESTS WITH THE RIGHT ATTITUDE who desire to experience a unique, different type of accommodation, who understand the challenges arising from being in an old building( no isolation, big volumes, high ceilings ) and APPRECIATE being in an old house with genuine history and character.

So far, to my surprise, my house has pleased many guests and have been enjoying the house greatly, I was not expecting all those bookings, the photos are accurate, when I will finish wallpapering the hallway, I will hire an airbnb photographer. it is not in my interest to hide anything or to have the wrong photos, all photos are accurate and real.

So that everyone knows, all is missing renovating now is a bit of painting, I would like to find a gorgeous wallpaper for the hallway and I am on my way to Milano in 2 weeks for it!

I really want to create a unique, beautiful, clean, safe and comfortable home for my guests. I am very grateful with the business that my guests bring and really enjoy meeting everyone. I want to give everyone a personal touch and intention. it is my very desire to make their stay a unique experience in Dublin and at North king street.

Perfect house for a large group. Nicole was happy to help with the many questions and last minute changes I had. Very flexible with checkout too which was brilliant. Great location too.

Nicole's place is great, it is quirky and has lots of character. The location is fab, just a short stroll to Temple Bar and the city centre. Nicole was a brilliant host, accomodating our every need with no fuss. Nicole helped to make our girls weekend in Dublin the success that it was. We had a great time! I would highly recommend Nicole's place.

Nicole was an excellent host. Very flexible and accommodating. The house is great for hen dos. Nice and spacious, but also not too fancy so you can relax and enjoy without worrying. Great location with everything you need nearby. Thanks Nicole!

I would highly recommend this house for a stay in Dublin. Nicole was a wonderful host. She was very helpful throughout the booking process and when she met us on arrival gave us a very interesting run down of the history of the house and told us some of the best places to go during our stay. She was also easy to contact during our stay. The house is incredible. Nicole has real flair and she has done an amazing job redecorating while retaining the charm of the old house. The rooms are large and beautiful and the kitchen is light-drenched and a lovely place to sit and eat. It is fully equipped if you like to cook. If you prefer to eat out Urbanity cafe at the other end of the square is a great place to have breakfast or lunch- they do fantastic coffee and fabulous food. For dinner try L Mulligan Grocer for a great meal in charming surrounds. We found it easy to walk into the city from the house and the tram stop was only a 5 minute walk away if we wanted to travel much further.

The host is very nice and helpful, the location is very good. Unfortunately the accommodations did not meet our expectations. The overall feel was they are trying to do the right thing in the restoration, but the home still needs some work. The carpets where rather filthy and the misty/mold smell while entering was concerning and triggered my wife's allergies. We do wish the owners good luck with saving and restoring a historic building as the history is interesting.

Just an awesome place. It is old and that is the charm. Centrally located, historical and you could not find a better host.

We stayed here for a Hen Do and had the best time. Nicole was so helpful before and during our stay and I cannot recommend this place enough. It is in the perfect location, close to everything you would need. It really is the perfect house for a Hen Do. We all had an excellent time :) Thanks so much Nicole :)

I am so happy to be able to welcome guests from the world over and to be able to welcome big groups in the heart of Dublin city center:):), the house is old, circa 1675, far from being perfect but has so much to offer in term of genuine history, offering a different type of accommodation with old tick walls, high ceilings, big volumes, log fire...
I am an easy-going person, love meeting people from different horizon and
Will do my maximum to make sure that your stay together and in Dublin is great:):):):)
I am also very happy to re-organise the space more efficiently on a sharing basis to make it possible for bigger groups,

I am looking forward to meeting you in Dublin:):):)

Warm regards,

Nicole
