The Space

Your chance to stay in an award winning house that combines a loft style main house and a private, separate guest house with a Japanese bath house vibe accessible to the main house through an interconnecting courtyard; a great sun trap in which to stretch out on a bean bag and read or just chill out.

Internationally renowned Canadian architect and critic Charles Jenks who is to architecture what Jeremy Clarkson is to cars thought it 'wonderfully naive and enjoyable'
Both sleeping spaces come complete with their own bathrooms; in the case of the guest house, a Japanese ofuro- style bath.

It comes complete with cosy under floor heating, fully equipped kitchen, 2 cable TVs, a DVD player and a great sound system to connect to your MP3 player.
Linen and towels are provided as is cutlery, as well as cooking and eating utensils.

The house is located in a quiet residential street about 25 mins walk from the city centre, 15 mins walk from the main train station, DART and LUAS (light rail and tram systems respectively) and BUSARAS, Dublin’s main bus station, all of which can take you to many destinations both in and around the city and beyond.
If you don’t wish to walk there feel free to take one of the many buses that pass closeby every 3 minutes or so at peak times, 5 thereafter.
The coast road to scenic Bull Island and Dollymount Strand is only 5 minutes walk through nearby Fairview Park.
The charming fishing village of Howth, renowned for its restaurants and bars, only 25 mins from the nearby DART station makes for an ideal day trip.

On street, free parking is available outside the house for car users. The house is only 5 mins from the airport by car or Airport Bus through the nearby Port Tunnel. It is also about 5 minutes drive from Dublin Port Ferry terminal.

The house offers a unique opportunity to stay in a calm, relaxing house removed from the noise and bustle of the immediate city centre but yet close by and easily accessible by foot or public transport.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • We were three women and had a comfortable stay in Pat's house. With a main building with a double bed and a day bed, which works perfectly to sleep on, and a separate small guest house with another double bed and own bathroom section, it's a comfortable place that offers privacy despite taking up relatively few square metres. The shower and (tiny but big enough) toilet in the main building are in separate rooms from each other.
    Pat was wonderfully friendly and welcoming. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Dublin.

  • Pat's place was excellent (clean, modern, well equipped, good location, etc), and Pat was an incredibly gracious host. Would highly recommend anyone to stay at his place while in Dublin.

  • We an excellent time in Ireland, using Pat's house as our "home base." Pat was an attentive host as questions popped up over the course of our trip. We didn't spend too much time in Dublin but when we did we used cabs back and forth (would reco downloading the Hailo app for that since this house is in a lesser known residential area). A cab to the city center is about 10 euros from Pat's. The house is very close to the airport, which is a plus.

  • Billeder er taknemmelige. F. eks. vidste vi ikke at toilet, bad og madras på var i samme rum i annekset. Plasticvæggene i lejligheden knirkede en del. Det var varmt, men det kunne vandet ikke blive.
    Der var meget rodet udenfor,
    Vi havde en dejlig uge i Dublin. Pat er en meget charmerende og venlig mand, som diskede op med øl og mad da vi ankom.
    Lejligheden er ikke beregnet for ældre eller handicappede.

  • We really enjoyed our stay in the beautiful house which blew us away in both it's design and layout. The little garden was a perfect place for our little terrier to play. Pat was welcoming even walking us to the nearest pub in case we got lost. This is a beautiful getaway but is so near to the city centre and surrounds.

  • Pat's place is a GREAT place to spend the night while in Dublin. He has a great, clean, modern, and unique place to relax after exploring the city. We had a group of 4 stay and there was plenty of room between the upstairs loft room and the room that is off the back of the flat through a small enclosed courtyard. Everything was there that we could have needed and Pat was really great in explaining how everything worked, where we were in relation to landmarks and gave us great advice on how to get around Dublin during the busy St. Patricks' Day weekend. Overall, we loved our time at Pat's place and we couldn't recommend it more!

  • First Airbnb experience at Pat's loft-appartment and a great one. Pat was a lovely host, very welcoming and always available in case me or my friends had any questions or issues. I would definitely recommend Pat as a host to anyone.
