A bright and airy double room in a cosy red-brick terraced house on a quiet street in the centre of historic Portobello, Dublin. A few minutes from the bustling Camden street area and only a short stroll into the centre of Dublin.

The Space

This is a bright and airy double room in a cosy red-brick terraced house on a quiet street in the centre of Portobello, Dublin. The two windows look out over trees and gardens, and have black-out roller blinds. There is a large bathroom next door with fireplace and bath, and wardrobe space on the landing.

The ground floor has a living room, also with a working fireplace, a large kitchen / dining area and a light-filled home office leading to a south-facing patio lined with old ivy.

The house is one street away from the beautiful, tree-lined Grand Canal. There are plenty of great cafes, pubs and restaurants nearby, ranging from cheap and cheerful ethnic cafes to the Michelin-starred Locks restaurant just around the corner. A 15-minute stroll brings you into the centre of Dublin via the vibrant area of Camden Street. We are convenient to museums, galleries and the main shopping areas. There is a Dublin Bike station at the end of the street, and the area is very well served by buses (including the 16, which goes to the airport) and the Green Luas (tram) line. I recommend Le Cool Dublin as one of the best online guides to the delights of the city.

Freshly laundered sheets, towels and soap are provided for each guest. All guests are welcome to use the kitchen/dining area, TV, washing machine, broadband wifi and can avail of a free-of-charge Dublin Bike card for the duration of their stay. This is an LGBT friendly house.

Guest Access

Guests have access to the whole house apart from the office and second bedroom.

Interaction with Guests

I leave each guest to have their own space as much as they require.

The Neighborhood

Portobello is a lovely, quiet area filled with Victorian housing and bounded by the Grand Canal to the South. There are plenty of great pubs, cafes and restaurants and it's really easy to get into the centre of Dublin ( 15 minute stroll, 5 minutes on the bus)

Getting around

The house is about 30 minutes from the airport by taxi, depending on the time of day, and the fare will be around €25/30. Alternatively the Air Coach express bus travels every 20 minutes to the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel on Burlington Road ( tickets €8 one-way) where you can jump in a taxi for the rest of the journey (fare aprox. €8/10) or walk for about twelve minutes up the canal.The number 16 bus takes about an hour from the airport to the South Circular Road, Longwood Avenue, Stop 1289, about 300 metres away from the house. On the other side of the street is the South Circular Road, Carlisle Street, Stop 1349 which is well served by four bus routes that take 5 minutes to get to the centre of Dublin.
I recommend downloading the free My Dublin smartphone app, which shows real-time bus information. The Green Luas ( tram) line is five minutes away, and serves South Dublin. There is a Dublin Bikes station at the end of the street, and I have a card available for guests to use.

  • I stayed in Conor's house in Dublin for two days for work. It is in a great location, right beside the Grand Canal and a very short walk from pubs and eateries. Conor went out of his way to make my stay as easy as possible, giving me his bike card (the best way to get around) and making sure I had everything I needed during my stay, including car parking permits. The room is exactly as seen in the photos and the bed is really comfy. We had some great chats and I would highly recommend his red brick home beside the leafy canal as a perfect home away from home for anyone passing through Dublin. It was hard to leave!

  • We had a great stay at Conor's place! It is a very beautiful and inspiring house in a very charming neighbourhood. It's decorated with taste and there are books almost in every room :) Although we only rented the room, it felt that we rented the whole house. Conor is super friendly and welcoming, he had good tips for museum and eating out. He also gave use food for breakfast, and lent us his umbrellas. His neighbours are also very friendly. Everything was perfect! Thanks again Conor, I would definitely go back.
