About this listing
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.
No smoking in the house or guest house please. There is a great courtyard between the two buildings that's fit for this purpose.
Please be considerate to the neighbours; it's a quiet residential area comprised mainly of family occupied dwellings, so no parties please!
Please note and observe the bin collection and recycling arrangements outlined in the house manual.
While the house is located in a safe and secure residential area, I would ask guests to observe common sense when it comes to basic security regarding the locking of doors etc. at night and whilst away from the house.
Thank you for your cooperation.
