About This Listing
This small house is in the artisan cottages area near Grand Canal Dock - an easy walk to the city centre. It was updated in 2002 to include 2 bathrooms, and 3 small bedrooms. It has comfortable, modern furnishings, and underfloor heating throughout.
This recently renovated/modernised cottage in the Grand Canal Dock area provides 3 bedrooms and a sofabed in the lounge room to easily accommodate 6 people (or up to 8 if there are 2 in each bed + the sofabed). There are two full bathrooms (shower/toilet/sink), and a large, modern kitchen with a family dining table. The whole house has underfloor heating that stays on 24 hours to keep you perfectly warm and cosy during your stay.
There is one main bedroom upstairs with a double bed plus two small dormer-style bedrooms, both with semi-double beds. The lounge room can be made into an additional bedroom with a very nice BoConcept sofabed - the room is open to the kitchen, but is closed off to the hallway. All linens and towels are provided, as is basic kitchenware. There is a dishwasher, washer and dryer. There is also high-speed wireless internet.
There is a Eurospar market in the neighbourhood, and the Beggars Bush area to the south is just five minutes walk, and has a number of excellent cafes and pubs. To the north is the Grand Canal dock area with the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre, a supermarket, and many popular waterside restaurants. Merrion Square and Trinity College are a 15-20 minute walk. Grafton Street or Temple Bar are a 25 minute walk.
South Dock Street Park is at the end of the street, and ideal for kids.
Grand Canal Dock DART station is just 350 metres away.
This is a beautiful home steeped in history. Built in 1895, it was one of the original workman's cottages housing employees of Bolands Flour Mill. The mill stopped production in 2001, leaving the neighbourhood quiet and peaceful, and ideally located right in Dublin 4, in the part closest to the city centre.
The house is not occupied by anyone but you during your stay.
Grand Canal Dock is a vibrant, international area (home of all the biggest high-tech multinationals), with excellent waterfront cafes, pubs, the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre, and much more. It's an easy walk 20-25 minutes to the city centre (Temple Bar) to the west, or going east you can reach the parks and beaches of Sandymount in about the same time.
Taxis are easily accessed any time around the corner on Barrow Street.
Grand Canal Dock DART station is a 3-minute walk from the house. Buses to the city or Sandymount are also a 3-minute walk away. Dublin Bikes opened new stations in the area in 2014.
No smoking is allowed in the house. Parking may be available if organised with sufficient notice before your stay. Please clarify if you are bringing a pet so arrangements can be made.
Great experience in Dublin thanks to wonderful accommodation. The cottage is centrally located, right near DART and walking distance to many areas of interest. Lovely place with everything you might need for a stay. Jim and Heath provided great communication as well. Highly recommend!
We spent for nights at Jim and Heath's house. Everything was perfect. the house is very cosy, with comfortable beds, everything was as described and we had everything we needed. The house is 5 minutes away from the dart station, and 25 /30 minutes away from the city center on foot.
We enjoyed our stay at Jim and Heath's cozy cottage. They were excellent at communicating and answered any of our questions quickly. The cottage had ample space for our family of six adults. It was an easy walk into the city centre and had 2 grocery stores close by which we went to daily to pick up food for our dinner. The airport shuttle dropped us off approximately a 15 minute walk from the cottage. We did not go to local pubs as we stayed in for game nights however there were local pubs close by. The cozy cottage more than met our needs and we would happily stay again if back in Dublin and would encourage others to stay there as well. It is located in a quiet neighbourhood which suited us perfectly. Many thanks go out to Jim and Heath for warmly welcoming us to their home.
Jim and Heath were wonderful hosts. The house was so clean and the pictures were exact. The house is in an amazing location. It's a great size with amazing kitchen and living room. The bedrooms are big and the bathroom spotless. I really enjoyed staying here and would definitely do so again :) thanks guys
Great communications from host and list of useful info.
The cottage was well equipped, clean and welcoming on a nice quiet street. It is in a great location - very handy for Dublin centre and for the theatre, etc. We used the local DART station a lot - just round the corner.
Great house in a quiet neighborhood, but close enough to walk to city center. We were there for 8 nights and were very happy to have chosen Jim and Heath's house. Very well appointed, functional kitchen, washer and dryer, comfortable beds, we would gladly come back.
I stayed at Jim and Heath's apartment for about a week while visiting Dublin. The apartment is clean and comfy with everything I needed. Jim was my main point of contact and left detailed instructions about everything. All in all it was a good experience. Thanks Jim and Heath!

About the Host, Jim And Heath
We (Jim and Heath) are university lecturers and we share our time between Tokyo and Dublin. In Dublin, we have a 3 bedroom home, very comfortable, quiet, and in the city center. This cottage house has underfloor heating throughout so it is very warm and cosy. We let the house out whenever we are away. We have already hosted a number of excellent guests since moving into the house in December 2013. In Tokyo we have a very comfortable, quiet apartment in the city center. We have let out our home while we are away since moving to Tokyo in 2004. We are homeowners and permanent residents, and we take very good care of our homes. We love both Dublin and Tokyo and we are happy to help out travelers looking for a great deal on a comfortable home away from home.
