About this listing
A tastefully furnished period house (built around 1900), in a quiet cul-de-sac, two miles from the city centre.
There are two bedrooms available, each suitable for one or two people. Groups of four can be accommodated - there is a listing for each of the rooms - similar photographs - and groups of four can be accommodated by booking both listings. Each room has a king size bed- which is exceptionally comfortable. The rooms are spacious and very calm - ideal for relaxation and rest. All the furniture is period, but the room has a nice modern feel to it. They've both got lovely linens, and plenty of fresh towels.
Two bus routes serve the main road, which is just around the corner from the house - the 16 bus from Dublin Airport (the journey takes about 50 minutes) is one of the routes. and the same bus runs only 10 minutes to the City Centre.
The City Centre (Grafton Street - Trinity College) is a 20min to a half hour walk from the house. Historic Dublin - St. Patrick's Cathedral, Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin Castle, Chester Beatty Library, National Gallery, are all within easy reach - either by bus route or walking.
I am involved with the Dublin International Piano Competition - an event that takes place every three years - so I'm deeply involved in offering stellar hospitality to international travellers and how to showcase the best that Dublin has to offer. I'm very aware of the standard and level of the comfort that people need while they're staying.
I offer breakfast - muesli, yoghurt, fresh homemade Irish brown bread, croissants, tea and coffee.
The sheltered sunny garden is a calm and restful place to have breakfast on a warm morning. One of the bedrooms looks over the garden.
I also have an information pack on Dublin, including map, city guide and information on day trips to Glendalough, Galway and the Cliffs of Moher, Cork, and Belfast.
I am delighted to help any guests to plan their days in Dublin, and if they are travelling to the rest of Ireland, I can also offer advice and assistance.
Hair dryer / Docking station / WiFi / on street visitor parking.
I would ask guests to be mindful of the security of the house - to ensure that the hall door is double locked when leaving the house, and the door should also be double locked at night.
If you open any windows, please close them before leaving the house.
Smoking is not permitted inside the house - if you wish to smoke, please do so in the garden. Food is not permitted in the bedrooms.
Please refrain from putting luggage on the beds - a luggage rack is provided in the bedrooms.
This is my home, I enjoy and I hope you will too.
