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.

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.

Guest access

Guests have full access to the first, second and third floor, exclusive use for group of guests. There is no sharing of anything.
Non-smoking policy for the entire house.
smoking is fine in the small courtyard at the back.

The neighborhood

the house has no direct neighbours on both side and the neighbours at the back are far away.

We are very close to the old Jameson Distillery in Smithfield. It is well worth a look. The house is very close to Smithfield square where there is also a very popular pub called the Cobblestone which has traditional Ceile Irish music every day from 4pm.
The house is very well located as it is only 10 minutes walk to O'connell street, the heart of Dublin
Around the corner, on Manor Street, there is a very nice Gastro Pub called Mulligans which does very good gourmet food 7 days a week.
We have just put a new plumbing system in the house which has 500 litres of hot water 24 hours on gas. there is great pressure for the 2 showers and there is a big golden bath.
The nightly rate does not include the cost of gas ( reading is done on arrival and on departure so we can work out the real cost of gas. The house has a central heating system on gas as well for the cooler months.
we provide wood at cost price (5.50 euro/ bag) in the living/dining/kitchen area, there is a wooden stove which is very powerfull in term of heating, It is very easy to light it and in no time it delivers great heat without mentioning that it creates a lovely, country feeling to the house which is quite nice considering that you are in the middle of the capital city of Dublin, so now very few places have this feature.
We have tried to turn huge volumes, high ceilings drawbacks into a great sense of space and warmth.
We can of course help you to light your stoves if you wish.
The house is very close to one of my favourite spot in Dublin which is the phoenix park with all the wild dears, you can hire bikes there, there is a cricket club, they also play Polo, people run, Families love it too.
So from the house, you can walk everywhere in dublin enjoying all the services of the city, yet able to relax and enjoy staying in a big old house, experiencing some of the old days of living.

Getting around

It is very accessible for the city. It is about 10 minutes walk to o'connell street, the center of the house. There is also a Tram Stop about 4 to 5 minutes away which has trams going to the city every few minutes..

Other things to note

I am very happy to welcome guests who have a genuine interest inexperiencing a different type of accommodation, understand and appreciate the challenges of old, historic,protected house.

A great stay for a hen do, where all guests can be together in the lounge and kitchen. Nicole is fabulous and can not do enough for you. She was great from booking to checking out and was great at communication. The house is in a good location next to shops and transport to city center, we did walk a couple of times and took approx 20/30 mins.

We stayed for a,hen weekend. The house was perfect for the weekend. There was a big communal space that was lovely. Plenty of space in the house. The bed room lay out is a little different but it worked perfect for us for the weekend. As its a,listed building the windows are single glaze so there was,some noise. The area is perfect for getting around,great food shops and coffee shoos close by. Also luas is close. Thanks very much nicole we really enjoyed the weekendstay

Nicole is a fantastic host, she is very knowledgable about Dublin and couldn't be more helpful regarding travel and tips about the city. Her home was perfect for us 12 hens for the duration of our stay over the weekend. Would totally recommend the property for similar parties.

Nicole and her husband could not have been more accommodating. We stayed here for a hen party and loved the quirky decor and cosy Fire. Well served with a supermarket and ATM and fifteen minutes walk to the centre.

We loved our stay!!! Nicole's communication in the run up was fantastic and really made me confident we were going to have a lovely stay. The area was great, 15min walk into temple bar and a supermarket a couple of pubs, restaurants coffee shops and bars literally across the road, as well as the distillery. We did a tesco delivery (after a lot of bother as ordering from outside Ireland) but would have happily shopped at the supermarket had we known it was there. We had a lovely evening in the Cobblestone a few doors down, listening to traditional music and had a few half pints of Guinness. There was plenty of room for out 16 strong hen party and all the household necessities in the kitchen for making dinner. I can't recommend this house enough!!!

An unbelievable place! You get an entire Georgian house smack in the middle of one of the hippest parts of Dublin (Smithfield). Absolutely incredible mix of modern and old - and an unbelievable host!! I will definitely be back.

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,
