Hi Sophie,

Thank you so very much for your visit to Dublin and for your stay at the accommodation:):):)
You were very nice and very easy to communicate with. It was a real pleasure having you for your special event:):):)I am very happy that you found the location of the house very convenient for your party.
Yes, this house is circa 1675 and is one of the oldest Georgian house in Ireland and as such from knocking them down literally back in 2000 to wanting to preserve them with a protection order in 2001, the county council is realising that those type of houses are our heritage, have and represent real testimony of our past culture, history and how people used to live.
This house has great volumes, original plaster work in ceilings, walls, original staircase, original 360 years plus single glass in the Georgian windows, this house was nearly in derelict condition 4 years ago with nothing but black walls and floors and had no kitchen, bathrooms, doors, no plumbing system, no central heating ....a lot of money and efforts has been put in to get to where we are now, it is a life project,and of course thanks to all of our Guests visits and support, I am putting it all back in saving this house, I am passionate and determined to take care of this genuine piece of history and unique building and fully accept all its challenges while respecting its integrity and entity.
I am not pretending in making a new house, don't and cannot do that, rather we are all making sure that we can adapt, observe and appreciate its uniqness, the details... craftsmanship, preserve and enjoy this old " beauty". This accommodation has only one main bathroom( huge) and another one on the third floor, that's might be very limited to most people in today's age but we are not allowed to change that, it is the rules of conservation, we are not allowed to divide the original big rooms and destroy the original plaster covings, we cannot dig into the walls or interfere with them even if they look imperfect to our eyes, it has to stay in its original state.
For sure, those Georgian houses are not going to be made again.
This accommodation has great volumes,is in the heart of the capital city of Dublin and has a great central location where you can explore all Dublin on foot.
I also delighted to be able to welcome big groups.
I decided to open my doors to airbnb Guests as I hope that I can offer my Guests something different, NOT PERFECTION, but maybe a brief experience, a discovery in what it was to live in a old house...of course combining with new modern comfort too with great powerful showers, new central heating system... New beds...
Thank you very much Sophie for your visit and feedback, all has been taking on board,
Warmest Regards,
Nicole
