About this listing
We live in a lovely part of Dublin, with convenient access to the city centre, either by a 15 minute walk or by bus/train. There are lots of really nice restaurants and bars in the area. Our cottage is small but comfortable.
A comfortable convenient house close to the heart of Dublin. It is a petite cottage set within an old Barracks and boasts two museums in the complex.
A 15 minute walk to the city centre (Grafton Street/Temple Bar) and the host of pubs, restaurants and sights on offer. Also a 15 minute walk to the sea where you can take a nice long walk or bike ride beside the beach.
The house is in the centre of the leafy suburb of Dublin 4/Grand Canal area, which has great transport links and is a much sought after area. It is beside the Aviva Stadium so is ideal for sporting events like Rugby and Football. It is also convenient for the Grand Canal Theatre if you intend to see a show. 20 min walk from the O2 if you are going to see a concert.
If it is a business trip, we are beside , and Accenture. The convention centre is a short taxi drive away or a 21min walk. Very convenient for all offices in the centre of Dublin.
Free high speed WIFI is available as well as Cable TV. There is guest parking in the complex or paid parking outside the complex if none of the spots are free.
Access to all areas of the house except for our bedroom.
Interaction with guests
As little or as much as the guest wishes. We live in the house, so if you use the sitting room, chances are we will get to know each other :-)
Dublin 4 is one of the most sought after areas to live in. It is famed for it's leafy suburbs, proximity to both the sea and the city. There are many wonderful bars and restaurants on your doorstep, which means you won't have to travel too far to sample or culinary delights.
4 Minutes from the Dart (Train) station. 2 Minutes walk from a road with many bus routes on it. You can also easily flag a taxi outside. However, we find we walk or cycle everywhere as we are so close to the city. You can also catch the Aircoach for €16 return from Dublin Airport to the School House Hotel which is 5 minutes walk from our door.
Other things to note
Our house is a home, so it is clean, but lived in :-)
No smoking in the house, but you can smoke outside or in the courtyard :-)
Love animals, but because it is a petite house, there is just no space for any large ones!
