About this listing
Small double room with roof terrace attached. Very quiet and cosy. Original floorboards and white walls. 4'6 bed with cotton linens. The house is a redbrick artisan house, in the heart of the city centre on a quiet street. Walk everywhere!
A cosy small double room with private attached deck / roof terrace in newly-restored redbrick artisan house in the best location in the Dublin city centre. The room is bright and quiet and you have shared use of the shower room. The bed is 4'6" (standard double). There's a nice terrace/deck accessed directly from the guestroom. Broadband internet is available. Walk to St Stephen's Green in less than 10 minutes and Temple Bar in 6 minutes.
Host is a well-travelled gay man. I speak (with varying degrees of fluency!) English, Spanish, Italian and French. I can advise on cultural and entertainment options. Help yourself to coffee (Nespresso I'm afraid, the Gaggia keeps breaking :)) or a glass of wine. I love living here, both for the house and the convenience of being right in the heart of things, while on a very quiet street.
You will not need to get a taxi anywhere in the city centre when staying here. The 747 airport bus leaves you 4 minutes walk from front door and usually takes about 25/30 minutes. The house is very cosy in winter (well-insulated!). The interior is all-white and mixes contemporary fittings with some period touches. The floors upstairs are the originals (restored) and there are Edwardian/Victorian fireplaces.
I can provide on street parking permits where necessary.
There are lovely cafes (Cafe Noto, Fumbally, Queen of Tarts, Mannings) nearby. The best local pub (possibly the best pub in Dublin) is Fallons. You are 10 minutes walk from all that Dublin City Centre has to offer.
There are buses and trains to all outlying areas should you wish to explore - Malahide, Howth, Dalkey, Bray and Greystones are within easy reach. The Phoenix Park is a 15 minute walk away.
Please feel free to help yourself to breakfast. There is coffee, a selection of teas, bread, eggs, fruit, granola and cereals.
Help yourself to alcohol - whether you prefer a beer, a G&T or a glass of Malbec of NZ Sauvignon blanc, there should be something to suit your tastes :)

Interaction with Guests
We enjoy meeting new people, and are happy to chat. We also understand that people generally want to see and experience as much as they can when on a short visit to Dublin.
I love this area. Trinity College is a ten minute walk. as is Grafton Street and Camden St. The location cannot be beaten. I love my street as it is friendly and tree-lined. The convenience is key. Love being able to walk everywhere, and feeling part of history in Dublin's most historic residential quarter.
Everything in the city centre is within walking distance. The DART (suburban train) is a 15 minute walk away, the LUAS (tram, both red and green lines) are 10 minutes walk. Heuston Station is 15 minutes walk - for regional trains. Cross city buses (I never use them) are less than 5 minutes away.
Other Things to Note

If you do not have a working mobile (cell) phone in Dublin please have an alternative means of communication for check in.
Please do feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like any information - If I don't know I will try to find out for you!
Please be aware that this is my home. There are books, magazines and other personal items available for your house. This is an advantage if you wish to treat the house as a home: it has lots of cooking equipment, ingredients, spices etc. but it does mean that it is more cluttered than my other listing which is permanently let.
