The space

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.

Guest access

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 :-)

The neighborhood

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.

Getting around

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 :-)

House Rules

You really couldn't ask for more hospitality, such a lovely couple. The room is very spacious and the old barracks venue is gorgeous. A close walk to town and an easy bus away from the airport. Would definitely recommend.

My stay with Emma and Ronan was everything I hoped it would be. It was my first time traveling alone, first time in Europe, and first time using Air BnB. Their home was very comfortable and everything is like the description said. The location is great, walking distance to the city center. I was able to come and go as I pleased. Had a bit of trouble learning how to use the key but once i figured it out it was no problem. I arrived earlier than expected and wasn't able to communicate right away due to issues with my phone. Emma left work as soon as she heard from me to let me in and show me how everything worked, which was greatly appreciated. They were both also very helpful with any directions or tips about getting around when I needed them. If I am ever in Dublin again I will definitely look to stay here!
