Charming little house in Dublin City Centre. This is my main home, renovated in 2011. It is a redbrick terraced house in the Christchurch area with every convenience in the locality. The house was built by The Dublin Artisan Trading Company in the early 1900's.

There are two double bedrooms, a separate kitchen, shower room and large living/dining area. There is also a decked roof terrace on the first floor.
The house is fully insulated, there is underfloor heating downstairs. There is a large working cast iron fireplace in the living room. The decor is contemporary and bright, with some period touches.
All of Dublin is at your feet when staying here. The street is really quiet, yet you are minutes from Dame Street. There are numerous lovely cafes (including Cafe Noto, The Fumbally and Queen of Tarts) nearby, as well as pubs (Porterhouse Parliament Street, Fallons, The Bull and Castle) and restaurants, theatres and cultural attractions.

Interaction with Guests
Interaction varies - I try to be available to guests in person where possible, and certainly am available to contact through phone or online where necessary.
I am a great believer that if there is something amiss it can usually be swiftly dealt with if the guest contacts.
I am also available to provide any local information - if I receive a text or message about an event, sport, restaurant, pub etc I will either know or generally be able to find out ..
It is right in the heart of the city centre and yet on a very quiet tree lined street. I like the traditional redbrick fronts of the houses and the fact that you can be in Temple Bar, Grafton Street or St Stephens Green in less than ten (website hidden) Patrick's Cathedral and Christchurch and Christchurch Cathedral are minutes away. There is a great selection of traditional pubs and fashionable cafes.
Everything Dublin city centre has to offer is within walking distance.
Yes, but not necessary for the city centre.
There are cross city buses nearby, the Luas (tram) stops just over the river and Heuston Station (trains to the West and South of Ireland) is 15 minutes on foot.
Other Things to Note
The house is very cosy and warm in winter.
Towels and sheets are 100% cotton and excellent quality.
The kitchen is fully stocked with equipment and appliances.
There is a house manual provided with keys on check in.
The Wifi begins with 617.., the password is FHNCKCRG.
The television is SMART.
No smoking indoors please.
Please feel free to borrow novels, magazines etc.
Please be careful with the fireplace, it is cast iron so corrodes with water contact.
Daragh's home was a great getaway for our quick 2-day trip in Dublin. The bathroom is a bit on the small side, but there is a washer/dryer, full kitchen and a patio access off one of the main bedrooms. Daragh's was super accommodating and helpful, and gave us a map with recommendations for restaurants and bars that we loved.
Daragh was very welcoming & helpful. We didn't meet him in person but he was very repsonsive to emails and made lots of helpful suggestions for places to go in Dublin. The apartment was great, the location was so convenient. The terrace was especially nice- in fact one of our group found it was the perfect spot to propose! So now this place will forever be a part of their engagement story!
We stayed 3 nights and we had a great time. The house is smal but very and stylish and everything you need was there! Even Netflix and Apple tv
Great location, great host!!
We stayed 2 nights in the house and all was perfect. House is very nice, cleaned and perfectly located in the centre of Dublin. Daragh is great host, he was very attentive and quickly replied to my messages.
This is a nicely modernised house in a great location. Daragh is a very relaxed host and everything you need for your stay is there. There are basic shops (Spar) minutes away and even a few of the top sights on the doorstep. It is a very quick walk to Temple Bar and a bit longer to O'Connell Street, but there are lots of buses. We were blessed with great weather and the roof garden is a real suntrap.
