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 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 :)
Céad Mile Fáilte (One Hundred Thousand Welcomes - in Gaelic)
Please do not smoke inside the house. There is a decked terrace directly off the guest bedroom.
Please help yourself to breakfast, drinks etc.
Tap water is drinkable.
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!
Daragh's place was in a perfect location. Close to the action but far enough away that we weren't keep up by late late nighters. Communication was pretty good, any delay may have had to do with cell phone delays.
You will hardly find a more knowledgeable guide to Dublin than Daragh. He received us with an open map which he proceeded to fill with suggestions suited to our tastes. He and his partner are super friendly and will make you fill at home instantly. Plus the apartment is ideally located making this an amazing choice.
Daragh was very welcoming and extremely knowledgeable about Dublin. He had specific recommendations for any and all requests we had about dining, pubs, music, etc. The hosts were very generous in making us feel that we could fully use the facilities. Their location was central to the most visited places in the city, so we parked the car and walked to every place we wanted to go.
My boyfriend and I had a great time at Daragh's place. He was very welcoming and offered us drinks and food. He gave us a great orientation to the city and awesome food recommendations. The room was clean, cozy and in a great location!
I had the best time staying with Daragh. He was the best host ever. As soon as I arrived he showed me all of the best places to go. It was like staying with friends! Such a great location, I walked all over Dublin with no problems. I would highly recommend staying at Daragh's place. The room even has it's own terrace, which was nice!
Very welcoming, great local knowledge and a super friendly host :) All the more impressive given we arrived around midnight!
The room is pretty small but fine for the weekend. Well stocked drinks cupboard and a great central location - no more than 15mins walks from anything you'll want to see in the old town.
House is pretty small so likely to hear each other coming and going in the evening, but bed is plenty comfy enough for a good night's sleep :)
Beautiful house and beautiful host! We had a lovely time and really enjoyed the warmth and generosity! I would live to go back any time and hope the know I expect them to visit be any whenever they want!
