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.

The Space

This recently renovated/modernised cottage in the Grand Canal Dock area provides 3 bedrooms and a sofabed in the separate lounge room to easily accommodate seven people. 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, St. Stephen's Green and Trinity College are a 15-20 minute walk.

South Dock Street Park is at the end of the street, and ideal for kids.

Grand Canal Dock DART station is just 3 minutes walk.

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 was the scene of the 1916 Easter Rising, claimed by Eamon de Valera for the Irish Republic. 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.

Guest Access

The house is not occupied by anyone but you during your stay.

The Neighborhood

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.

Getting around

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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • What a fantastic experience...I had great communication with Jim and he was very responsive. Loved, loved, loved...the house...very close to a fantastic food market and public transport (although I only ever took a cab or walked). Also close to the theatre and some great places to eat, would recommend to anyone...

  • Jim, thank you very much! I had a fantastic week in your cottage! The house is super clean, spacious and in the middle of the tech center in Dublin. Super easy to walk everywhere, also to Downtown Dublin. Communication before the booking was great, also during the stay Jim asked me if everything is OK. Thank you very much! Definitely looking forward to stay here again! Best, Georg

  • Nous avons beaucoup aimé notre séjour dans la maison de Jim à Dublin. L'accès au train et à l'autobus étaient à 5 minutes de marche.
    L'endroit était propre et chaleureux. Une épicerie était à un coin de rue de notre maison. C'était notre première visite en Irlande et nous sommes très satisfaits de la maison à Dublin que nous avons loué.
    Merci Jim !

  • Staying at Jim's place was a great experience. My children (girl 10 and boy 18) totally enjoyed themselves as they each had their own bedroom and because Jim's place has several sockets everywhere they were able to charge their phones and gadgets without hesitation.

    The underfloor heating was a major highlight and the fact that we were able to entertain guest due to Jim's kitchen having a multitude of necessary items was a big deal.

    A special aspect of Jim's location is the fact that it is close to the train station, Insomnia, chemists, local shops and restaurants, swimming pool and theatre.

    The children are asking to go back again next year so I guess they agree that Jim's place was the best for Xmas.

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.
