Phibsborough is a lively old city neighbourhood, full of interesting characters and steeped in history.
The area well served by several buses that cross the city and there's a DublinBikes stand at the end of the street as well as a taxi rank. But unless it's raining you're quicker walking to the city centre.

About the Host, Bairbre
I’m a native Dubliner. I live in Phibsborough a vibrant, multicultural neighbourhood just ten minutes walk from the city centre and half an hour from the Airport. There’s lots to see and do in Dublin and I’ll be happy to fill you in on places of interest and activities you might enjoy during your visit.
My house is old, built in 1883 and full of character ( including creaky floorboards). The bedroom is on the ground floor and is quiet and looks out on the garden. I do have a fluffy cat so probably not a good choice if you have allergies.
If you’re looking to take a break from the busyness of the city both the National Botanic Gardens and Phoenix Park are in walking distance and well worth a visit and the charming Blessington St. Basin is just around the corner.
