My apartment is located in leafy Ballsbridge, which is a great location for walking into the City centre. There are great pubs and restaurants on my doorstep! Also public transport is close by which gets me to other parts of the city and surrounding areas.
When not enjoying all the numerous delights that the city has to offer, I love to go on the little train called "The Dart" and travel 30mins to Dalkey and Killiney beach to the south as well as Malahide and Howth to the north. I have often watched the dolphins playing in the ocean! When at Killiney, I love to walk along the coast road which has been compared to The Amalfi Coast of Italy, past lots of famous homes to the heritage village of Dalkey, with its quaint shops, pubs and restaurants.
Other times I go uphill to the top of killiney hill where there are breath-taking views in all directions.
Dublin is an easy city to get around. The list is endless of things to see and do there! However if the mountains and lakes are your thing, they are within easy reach of my home. Just a few mins down the motorway and you are in the Wicklow mountains, which is a walkers paradise and steeped in history.
I love to travel to other parts of the world and I use Airbnb when I can!
