About this listing
Sweet little Dublin home. Small apartment in classic Georgian building on a quiet tree-lined avenue. Good neighbourhood, 15 mins walk from city centre, 5 mins from Grand Canal, 20 mins Trinity or UCD. Parks, shops, bars and restaurants close by.
Cosy little apartment, available to sublet while resident travels, in embassy district, close to city centre (5 mins by bus or 15 mins walking). On a quiet leafy avenue, one of the best addresses in Dublin, in a classic Georgian building, behind electronic gates with private parking.
Inside there is a well-appointed bathroom with tub and shower, hall with small desk, double bedroom, light and airy living room with the high ceilings and tall sash windows of Georgian buildings, double sofa bed, romantic open fireplace and original marble mantelpiece, widescreen TV with digital box, DVD player and large DVD collection, tiny galley kitchen, washing machine and all mod cons.
The whole is maintained to a good standard and is professionally cleaned before your arrival. Non-smoking building; smoke alarms in every room. This is a lovely place to stay and will suit a single traveller or couple; same rate per night for one or two people staying here.
There is a double sofa bed in the living room, so two friends or a couple with child(ren) could also stay here but it would be a squeeze for more than two - I wouldn't recommend it for a longer stay.
My home is gay friendly.
Many travellers have been my guests and happy with their temporary home in Dublin. Served by all transport links with busy Baggot Street Bridge nearby. There you will find restaurants, bars, cafes, shops, supermarket. It is a short and pleasant walk (or a shorter bus ride) to Merrion Square with The National Gallery and The Dail (Parliament). A little further to St Stephen’s Green and the shopping area. See map to confirm just how central this is while being in a lovely residential area with the famous Herbert Park and Grand Canal on your doorstep. Hi-speed wireless broadband included.
There is an aircoach directly from the airport to about 4 mins walk from the building that runs 24 hours a day.
Character and charm, with comfort and a great location.
You have the keys and sole use of the apartment for your stay. You have wifi, tv with cable, a big DVD collection, a nice bathroom and cooking facilities.
Interaction with Guests
I will meet you in person and show you around, when possible. If not, my housekeeper Kay will meet you. In the winter, I will try to collect you from the aircoach and bring you to the apartment. I will always be available within 24 hours if there is an emergency and there always are back-up people nearby, eg the housekeeper and my neighbour, with spare keys.
It's walking distance into the centre so you're in the beating heart of the city - but it's on an elegant tree-lined avenue and very quiet. The apartment is in a Georgian house in an area famous for its architectural beauty. There are parks, shops, restaurants, cafes and bars nearby. You will find it easy to feel the vibrant atmosphere of Dublin and retreat to peace and quiet.
Couldn't be easier, the bus at the end of the road will have you in the city centre in 5 minutes, there is also easy access to the DART train and the LUAS tram. (website hidden) has a stand nearby.
But the easiest of all is to go to the top of the road, turn left and it's a straight line into the centre. You will be at the parliament, The National Gallery, Trinity College in 15 minutes.
University College Dublin is a 10-15 minutes bus ride in the other direction and The Royal Dublin Society (RDS) is a 5 minute walk away.
We ask that you be considerate of our neighbours as regards noise, especially on the stairs, after 11 pm. There is one double bedroom - so best for single travellers or a couple but an extra person could stay on sofabed in living room. No smoking indoors but you can smoke outside (do please put your cigarette ends in the bins outside).
