About this listing
Something different - charming 1930's style terraced houses beside river and park, this cosy, quiet home in leafy Rathgar is only 5 minutes walk from busy village with its boutiques, pubs, restaurants and bookshops. Central Dublin only 10 min by Luas tram. Free parking outside the door - heaven!
Cosy living room connects to dining area and compact kitchen which opens onto a large deck and pretty, very private garden.
Upstairs, two small double bedrooms with antique cast iron double beds in each beside toilet and shower.
On arrival, you will find everything you need in fridge or store cupboard to rustle up a delicious breakfast or snack after your journey.
Modern double glazed windows throughout.
The peaceful south facing back garden is a beautiful space where you can sip your morning coffee in privacy - plan your day to the sound of birdsong. Later, after a long day in the city, relax and maybe cook something delicious on the barbecue!
The entire house can be made available for guests with the exception of a tiny office. Check in is before 2pm if possible but we will try to facilitate you - and preferably check out before 12 noon. I can also make one bedroom available to a couple for (min/max) 3 nights.
Interaction with guests
I look forward to meeting and greeting my guests whenever possible, making them welcome and assisting them in any way I can to find their way around. I am only a phone call away if they have any queries or problems during their stay.
This is such a unique and special neighbourhood - you really don't need a car! At one end of the street is a little walkway to the river bank - then over the footbridge into Dartry park - great for jogging, dog walking or just strolling among the tall trees - turn left to the weir where you can stand and watch the herons and cormorants drying their wings. Keep walking straight on beside the river, under the bridge and pick up a newspaper or coffee at the Kiosk. Coninue up the hill to the buzzing neighbourhood of Raathgar with its Organic Supermarket, coffee shops and restauarants. Then through the next park and further along the banks of the Dodder, full of wild life. The other direction brings you to the famous Dropping Well Pub - all 5 minutes from my home! Cross the road to the Luas Tram stop and be in St Stephens Green in 10 minutes, or continue walking along the river all the way to Ballsbridge!
Yes - a bus at the end of the road which brings you into the city, or the Luas Tram just 10 minutes walk from the house. More buses available at Rathgar village only 5 minutes from the house.
Other things to note
I can give you lots of tips and information about some of the many great places Dublin has to offer - from restaurants and pubs to theatres, galleries and places of historical and cultural interest - or maybe you just want to soak up the atmosphere and go shopping! My home is also within short driving distance of Dunlaoghaire, Bray and Graystones - all beside the sea with wonderful views, walks and more great places to eat!
Just to respect my little home and its contents - treat it as if it was your own! I have a green bin in the garden for fruit and vegetable waste, another outside the door for recyclable materials. Please no smoking though!

I really enjoy lots of things! Cooking, ethnic food, live music, singing, walking, the countryside, movies, reading, vintage shops and markets, travelling when I can - especially to France where I try to speak as much French as possible! I'd love to travel more - who knows where I might end up! And of course - meeting people from anywhere and everywhere!
