About this listing
Two bedroom period red brick terraced house on a quiet, tree-lined street in the heart of the city centre. There are two double bedrooms, one shower room, kitchen and living/dining room. The house was fully refurbished and insulated. Roof terrace. This is my home that I rent periodically.
This listing is for a redbrick terraced city centre house.
This is the same location as our other listing - Perfect Location in Dublin City Centre - but is for the whole house. There are more photographs on that listing.
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.
One of my other listings - Best location in Dublin City Centre - has photographs of the house.
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.
You are welcome to help yourself to books, magazines, and of course our well-stocked bar!
The kitchen has oven, grill/microwave, hob, dishwasher, washer-dryer, fridge-freezer, Gaggia coffee machine etc.
There are numerous buses that pass nearby. Heuston Station is 10/15 minutes walk away (services Galway, Cork etc.)

Two double bedrooms
One shower room
This is my home that I rent periodically. It is thus fully stocked with herbs, condiments, liquor etc (help yourself within reason!) but has a different feel to my other listing which is permanently rented. There are clothes and linens in the wardrobes, half the bathroom cupboard has toiletries, and there are lots of books and magazines.
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 minutes. St 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.
Dublin City Centre is eminently walkable.
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.
Rubbish may be left in the small downstairs yard - let me know and I can have it collected if you see on an extended stay.
This is my home so there are personal items including clothing (in part of the wardrobes), toiletries (half the bathroom cabinet), books and magazines (in the living room). There is plenty of space for your belongings. The refrigerator will be cleaned but there are condiments there - which of course you may use.
Please feel free to help yourself to reading materials and alcohol (within reason) during your stay.
Please do not make loud noise or cause other disturbance that may bother the neighbours.
I need the names of each guest who will be sleeping in the house - there are two double bedrooms for a maximum of four people.
Please contact me immediately if you have any problems or are unhappy in any way with my home - most situations are very easily sorted with clear communication.
The house will be cleaned by the cleaner before your arrival, including all surfaces, refrigerator, bathroom, changing beds etc.
Most importantly, enjoy my home and enjoy Dublin!
