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 (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. 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!
This truly is a cozy home located in a lovely, quiet neighborhood! We were made to feel very welcome by our host and all that we needed was provided for us.
It is an easy bus or cab trip into the center of town where there is much to do and see. We would definitely recommend seeing the National Museum of Archeology, booking a tour of the Hill of Tara, and participating in a Musical or Literature Pub Crawl.
Andrea is a lovely host, she was also very helpful. She prepared a to-do list that you can do in Dublin and the list is really the best. Her house is also really beautiful with a really lovely garden. The neighborhood is also peaceful and people are really helpful. The bus stop to the city center is a 2 min walk and city center with the bus is maximum a 10-min ride. We loved everything about the house and the host Andrea.
Andrea's house was like a home for our one week stay in Dublin. The place is very well located and only 200 m from the bus stop! The bus no 14 brings you in only 17 min to Stephens Green. Dartry Park and Bushy Park next door are perfect for walking and running. There are very beautiful trees and my kids enjoyed running around.
As I stayed with my three kids in the house, we did much cooking at home and we enjoyed the very well equipped kitchen. The garden is just a dream! Where ever you look at Andrea's house you see she loves her home and I'm very happy and grateful that it was our home in Dublin!
Andrea es una persona encantadora. En la contratación de la casa los correos electronicos y mensajes eran contestados rapidamente. También nos recomendó varias excursiones a realizar, así como zonas dónde comer cerca de su casa. El dia de nuestra llegada que era muy tarde nos esperó e incluso nos preparó algo de cena y nos dejó comida en la nevera para desayunar el dia siguiente. El barrio es muy tranquilo, con un rio y amplias zonas verdes y parques muy cerca para practicar deporte, andar, etc...fuera del bullicio de dublin, pero muy cerca al mismo tiempo del centro de dublin, a solo 4km. Nosotros incribimos a los niños en un campus de futbol y tenis por las mañanas para que practicaran el idioma y nos fue muy bien, ya que en coche de alquiler lo teniamos todo en n radio inferior a 4 km. La casa es muy bonita con un jardin muy bien cuidado. Nada negativo a comentar, todo al contrario. Dos habitaciones de dimensiones correctss, cocina-comedor-sala de estar muy bonitos... esto es todo. La anfitriona y la casa han sido fenomenales.
Andrea is a really friendly, nice and sweet woman. From the begining she did her best to make us feel as good as been in our own house. She offered everything we needed and suggested us nice places to visit as well as good restaurants & pubs. She is very kindly and high hospitable.
The house is even better than offered, with a nice garden to be relaxed. Everything cleaned and very confortable. It is also very quiet, high valuable when located in a big city.
The area where the house is located is at the south of Dublin, nearby a beautiful park and well communicated by bus and train from the city centre at only 30 minutes. Quiet area, safe, full of nice big houses and wide streets to walk around. Had a really nice week. High recommended. Thanks Andrea for everything and being as you are.
Den blide, hyggelige vertinnen tok godt imot oss i huset og gikk gjennom en liste med praktiske opplysninger. Vi hadde bedt om tips til severdigheter i Dublin og små landsbyer vi kunne ta utflukter til. Likeså koselige spisesteder/puber i landsbyen like ved. Vi prøvde ut tipsene og ble meget godt fornøyd.
Huset var hjemmekoselig og hagen nydelig. Området var veldig rolig og stille. Flott å komme tilbake til etter byvandring/pubopphold.
Veldig bra Wifi i huset.
Fint område for kveldstur langs elven, kombinert med middag på restaurant i landsbyen Ratghar i nærheten.
Andrea's house worked out perfect for our week's stay in Dublin. Her place felt like a home for us. It's locate was very convenient to Dublin and there was good shopping and dining within a short stroll. Andrea was a perfect host. When we return to Dublin we would consider Andrea's home again. Thank you.
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!
