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 :)

Staying at Daragh's for the weekend was awesome. Daragh is a really nice guy, his house is impeccably clean, the bed was comfortable, and the entire place just felt really cosy. It was great coming back to his house after a long day of exploring Dublin. Location is central and easy for commute around town and to the airport. Highly recommended.
We had such a nice time staying with Deragh in Dublin. We seriously did not imagine his place to be that central so we were very surprised to find his place 2 min walking distance from downtown! Also he adviced us what to do and we loved the restaurants he told us to try! Thank you!!!
My husband and I stayed at Daragh's home from 14th to 18th february. It's the best location to stay at Dublin: near the centre (10 min walk), far enough the noisy area. The house is perfect, lots of accomodations, confortable, warm... We were like at home. And Daragh is the perfect host. He knows a lot of place to eat, to walk. His advices were perfect. Thank you to share your home and your time!
Daragh was an amazing host, right away when we arrived he had a map of Dublin and pointed out things to see and great places to eat, which was great because it was our first time in Dublin. His place is very centrally located making it easy to walk anywhere in the city. We felt very welcome staying with Daragh in his guest room.
Daragh was a funny and wonderful host with the best dinner and café recommendations. (and the best white wine at home :)) The apartment is centrally located and perfect for exploring the city by foot. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and highly recommend staying with him.
My boyfriend and I stayed at Daragh's house for a weekend, and I can't say enough good things about our stay. He was super friendly, helpful, and we had a great time hanging out with him. The house was clean, cute, and in a perfect location (quiet side street, but central and walkable to all the major sights). Highly recommend Daragh and his lovely home!
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour grâce à Daragh !
Très accueillant et de très bon conseil.
La chambre était très correcte dans une maison bien meublée et bien tenue.
Merci à notre hôte!
We had an excellent time in Dublin thanks to Daragh !
He was very welcoming and had perfect advices.
The room was really nice in a very pretty and beautifully furnished house .
Many thanks to our host!
We loved staying at Daragh's place! It's simply great!
The appartment is very clean, cosy, well-equipped, comfortable and it's not too noisy even it's super central located! You can reach everything easily. It's definitely a good choice !
And Daragh as its host is wonderfull too!
He is a really a nice host who always helps you if you need something and even gives you good advices where to go best in Dublin! The next time I travel to Dublin again I will come back to his place for sure :).
So I would absolutely recommend him to everybody who wants to travel to Dublin!
Daragh was a wonderful host. He had plenty of recommendations for things to see, and when Aer Lingus lost our luggage he really went the extra mile helping us get our stuff back.
The room was comfortable and functional. (Having a private door to the back patio was especially nice to let air in.) We couldn't have chosen a better location for seeing Dublin. It was close enough to walk to everything we wanted to see but far enough away from major streets that we didn't have any problems with noise at night.
We only had a weekend in Dublin, just enough to whet our appetite. When we come back, we'd absolutely stay with Daragh again.
Daragh is a very nice, friendly and helpful person and we felt very comfortable staying at his place. He has a beautiful furnished little house from where you can walk everywhere in the city center of Dublin. We would hardly recommend to book his guest room for a Dublin-Trip!
