The space

This calm double bedroom is in a three bedroom apartment with a spacious kitchen/ living room.

As well as the amenities listed I provide guests with adapters and umbrellas. The curtain has blackout fabric to help you sleep during the short Summer nights and is well insulated, warm and cozy in Winter.
There is a comfy seat for reading and two reading lamps. There's plenty of room for clothing with a wardrobe and two sets of drawers. Suitcases can be stored either under the bed, or if they're large, in the living room.
The bathroom is shared but each guest has their own storage space.

The apartment has plenty of space and is decorated in an eclectic style. There is a sheltered patio area for outdoor sitting.
There's free wifi and a small library of books and dvds for you to use in the living room. There's also free tea, coffee and hot chocolate.

Guest access

As well as your own bedroom you will have access to the bathroom (shared), kitchen/ living room, balcony area and roof garden.

Interaction with guests

You'll see me mostly in the evenings or the weekends as I work during most days. I sometimes socialize with guests then.

The neighborhood

The location really could not be better! It's in the absolute centre of Dublin, so it's close to everywhere yet just far enough away from the nightclubs in the South city centre to be a perfect location for sleeping too. The main tourist attractions are within an easy walking distance from here.

The main train and bus stations are within easy walking distance as is the nearest Luas station (light rail system). There's even a Dublin bike depot outside the front door on your right!

O'Connell Street, Dublin's main street, is just around the corner where buses leave for ever destination in the city, including the Dublin tour buses.

The GPO building is on this street, the focal point of the Easter Rising, along with various department stores and shops.

This part of Parnell St stretches from the Gate and Olympic theatres to the UGC cinema. In between there's a supermarket, a truly brilliant bookstore and a range of cafes and take-aways.

On Parnell Square, the block just north of here, is the Municipal Gallery with the famous Hugh Lane collection of fine art. This is free to enter and boasts a fine collection of late 19th and early 20th century art. This hosts free classical concerts every Sunday. Chapter One (a michelin star restaurant) is on this block along with the garden of Remembrance park.

Just opposite the apartment building is Moore street, the ancient, cobbled, open air fruit and vegetable market. Walk down this street and you'll come to Henry Street, one of Dublin's two main, very busy shopping streets.

At the other end of Parnell Street is Capel street which leads down to the river across the bridge from Dublin Castle. This street has dozens of pubs of different character, live music venues and restaurants.

If you cross the river (about a ten minute walk from here) you'll be in Temple bar where there's a wide variety of late night bars, clubs, cafes and more eclectic shops.

Getting around

There's every kind of public transport nearby.

The city centre in Dublin is compact so all of the main tourist attractions are within walking distance of this apartment.

Buses to everywhere in Dublin, including the bus tours of Dublin, leave from O'Connell St, around the corner. There is a Dublin bike (free bike hire) depot on Parnell St a minutes walk from the apartment building. The Luas (tram) stop on Abbey St is a five minute walk away. The main train station, Connolly station, is a 25 minute walk away. The main bus station, Bus Aras, is a 30 minute walk away.

From the airport any Dublin city bus that says "city centre" will bring you to O'Connell St, as will the aircoach (more expensive) or a taxi. From O'Connell St you're only a few minutes walk from the apartment building.

Other things to note

I hope that you'll feel very welcome here, like you're at a friend's home while you stay.

The living room is where I sew and make crafts so may be slightly cluttered at times.

I do keep the apartment clean but the floors and rugs are old and so have many marks on them.

I'm from here and know this city and the country very well so feel free to ask me about anywhere you'd like to go or about things you'd like to do.

We stayed with Niamh from 12th April to 17th April and it was a perfect stay. We had our own set of keys and could come and go as we wanted. The location of the apartment is perfect, very close to O'Connell Street and all the main attractions are within walking distance. I've been to Dublin before but Niamh's room was one of the best places that I've stayed. I absolutely recommend her cozy apartment.

Very central flat, 5 minutes walking from the city center. The host is kind. We had some problems with the shower, as we had it cold for two nights.

Our stay at Niamh's was great. the place is well located, we had our keys to go in and out whenever we wanted. She even gave us a list of places to go out for dinner, breakfast or a beer in Dublin.

Wow! My boyfriend and I are so happy with our choice to stay with Niamh! This was our first time using airbnb and she really set the standard high. Her apartment was eclectic, beautiful, cozy, and comfortable. There were lots of shops, pubs, and restaurants nearby. Excellent location! Niamh was very accommodating and had many recommendations for local places to visit. I highly recommend staying with her! Incredible value!

Niamh is such a good host, my mom accidentally burned her Kettle but she didn't blame for her at all, instead she tried to comfort my mom. We enjoyed our stay at her place. It's great location and nice beautiful rooms. Thank you Niamh, I will definitely recommend your place to my friends.

Hello. I'm an Irish artist and teacher who's been living in Dublin for many years. I have a wide range of interests including hiking, reading, films, photography, every craft imaginable, science, history and am a keen rugby fan. My favourite places to travel are deep in any unspoilt countryside or old, busy cities like Amsterdam or Prague.
As a host I love talking with guests and finding out about life in other countries but as I make art at home and sometimes go out of an evening I won't around all the time.
