The space

This is a comfortable, spacious and very funky, late Georgian house with original features, an updated large bathroom and back garden. Decorated with 60s & 70s objets d'art, books and records.
Sleeping space: 2 bedrooms with a total of 2 double beds + 1 single bed and a good sized living room that sleeps 1 or a couple.
The much-loved kitchen is the social hub of the house.
Overall, there's plenty of space for 6 people.

Guest access

This is a 2 story house with steps up to the hall door.
You will have sole access to the house including bedrooms, bathroom, toilet, kitchen, living room and back garden.
The house is 5-15mins walking distance from all the main shopping areas, best restaurants and most museums. I work in the hospitality and entertainment industry and have a good insight into some of Dublin's best kept secrets.

Interaction with guests

I will meet you on arrival to hand over keys, then the house is entirely yours! I will respect your privacy 100% but I can supply extensive recommendations for a variety of activities in the Dublin area and around the country should you need them. Call me for other on-the-spot recommendations and I will normally answer or reply within an hour.
See my guidebook and map at the bottom of the listing for a sample of my recommendations.

Other things to note

Mi casa es su casa! Please make yourself at home!
• It is advisable to book one night before your arrival if you require an early morning check-in to ensure early access.
• The south inner city is the true city centre where all the best shopping, cultural activity and nightlife is. Visitors are often disappointed when they stay in the north inner city and discover the O'Connell street area is NOT the the main focus of Dublin urban activity and has very little street life at night.
• See my guide book/map for a sample of my recommendations.
• Why not stay longer and use the house as a base for your complete Irish visit? Ireland is small and I can recommend several day trips from Dublin all around the country.
• Parking permits are available from me for street parking in front of the house at a cost of €1.25 per day. Make sure not to leave anything on view inside your car.

Lex was an amazing host with an absolutely delightful home! I would highly recommend staying here to anyone who wants a charming place to stay in a great location, with a host who welcomes you with kindness and graciousness...and with wine and goodies. Everything was clean and wonderfully decorated and we felt right at home immediately. The garden is an absolute bonus and we spent our first hours out there relaxing and planning where we were going to walk from the house...which included the possibility of just about every place in Dublin we wanted to see! You'll love this place and working with Lex.

Lex was a superb and extremely accommodating host. The house is wonderful, the location simply couldn't be better in terms of walk-ability into Dublin, and the neighbourhood is just charming. If you want to stay in historic old Dublin and live like a local, this is the perfect place. We will definitely be back. I would rate this as an A+ experience in every regard.

Great location! Close to everything. Super homey and cozy. Loved the peet fire. Great for all our needs. We could walk to everything or say in and enjoy the home and relax by the fire. Lex was super helpful and available and had items on hand when we arrived super tired. I appreciate his patience and thoughtfulness as a host. Would definitely recommend.

Prime Location! We spent a week at Alex's place and were able to walk everywhere. Coffee shops, quick lunches, leisurely dinners at the pubs and lots of dessert options as well. We had no issues finding anything we needed within a quick ten minute walk, including vegan and gluten free options for some of us. We tried many of Lex's recommendations for food and were not disappointed. We also had food delivered to the house a couple nights after being out all day walking. Most sights are easily walkable. If you prefer to take a taxi, using the hail app was so convenient and quick. The house is pretty much what you see in the photos. Very home like and cozy. Bath towels were nice and big and fluffy, and there were lots of them. There wasn't anything we needed that we couldn't find in the house. The exterior courtyard in my opinion was one of the best features of the house. It gets loads of sunshine and is so perfect to enjoy a coffee in the morning while the birds are chirping. You don't feel like you are in the city. Evenings were a little chilly but still enjoyable to sit out and have a drink. There were three of us staying at the house (one older child) and we found it very family friendly, lots of personal space and a quiet, safe neighborhood. We would definitely return.

Lex's house is really nice. Musical-ambiented with a lot of details in any screen/place. He left all the things we needed for having breakfast and a detailed guide about what to do and where to eat and go out. The street is really quiet but just one street behind you have everything you need: pubs, discos, restaurantes, etc... Location is perfect and only 15 minutes walking from temple Bar. We enjoyed our time at this house and if we come back to Dublin probably will try to book his house again

A native Dub, fine-art graduate, working in the areas of music and design. I've been transforming my city centre, terraced house and garden for more than fifteen years, creating a comfortable, relaxed style that mixes mid-century design with contemporary and Georgian features. I love city traveling most. I cycle and walk to explore new places. I also enjoy architecture, design, music, art, film, nightlife + people and stories. I collect records, old and new. I would love to collect art & furniture. I shop more than I can afford to.
