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!

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 Wifi begins with 617.., the password is FHNCKCRG.

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.
Great first Airbnb experience! Flat is exactly as nice as described and Daragh is the best host imaginable, helped us to find everything and provided us with a lot of valuable tips and recommendations for our stay in Dublin.
We had a wonderful time in Dublin. The house is perfect walking distance to most major attractions (Guinness, Trinity, Jameson, Dublin Castle, Temple Bar) so we didn't need any public transport in our 2 days. Daragh was a wonderful host, and although we never officially met due to timing issues (Edgar was so kind as to let us into the apartment, give us a map and point out some highlights), he was always very quick to respond to our emails and was incredibly helpful. The apartment itself was fine for what we needed. There were 4 of us, 2 rooms with beds, a small but useable kitchen, and a very tiny bathroom but it was all up to date and didn't really pose a problem. All in all had a great time, it was a fair price for a weekend in the city center, and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.
Daragh's place is great! It became our home away from home in Dublin, making our visit that much more enjoyable. It was clean, spacious and comfortable. Exactly as advertised. The location is great; we were able to walk every where.
Daragh was a very accommodating host, attentive to make sure we had everything we needed and available if we had any questions.
I will definitely reach out to Daragh again for my next trip to Dublin!
El anfitrión se portó genial con nosotros. Antes de llegar a Dublín, se preocupó mucho por nosotros, y nos dio todas las indicaciones que le pedimos.
Ante cualquier duda, contestaba rápido. Muy agradable y educado.
La casa está en un lugar perfecto, puedes ir andando al centro, o a cualquier lugar de visita (Catedral, Fábrica de Guinness, etc.). El barrio es tranquilo y seguro, no tuvimos ningún problema.
La casa es fantástica, amplia y limpia. Todo funciona a la perfección, pues creo que ha sido recientemente remodelada.
Very nice and cozy flat. The flat is very well located and in walking distance to all important sightseeing spots.
It's well equipped, with everthing you need.
I highly recommend this flat!
Notre séjour s'est très bien déroulé. L'appartement de Daragh est très agréable et parfait pour les 4 adultes que nous étions. Daragh est très accueillant et donne beaucoup d'information sur Dublin. Le quartier est calme et tout proche du centre ville. Bonne adresse, bon rapport qualité/prix, je recommande cet appartement.
Nous avons eu des réponses rapides à toutes nos questions et de bonnes suggestions d'adresses ! La maison correspond bien au descriptif et franchement la literie confortable à été tres apprèciée après de longues journées de visites
