Experience authentic Georgian elegance is this unique large OVAL studio apartment, overlooking park. Accommodates two in cosy sleeping loft. Light a fire, cook dinner in the designer kitchen, and then head out to enjoy the attractions of the city.
Come stay in one of Dublin's unique Georgian apartments, a perfect oval room, situated on Mountjoy Square, in the heart of Dublin's North Georgian core, and just minutes from O'Connell Street. This large studio apartment is on the ground floor of a beautiful redbrick townhouse, built in 1792. Both house and apartment retain all their original features, combined with modern comforts. The apartment has a fantastic 10ft window and overlooks a quiet side street, with an oblique view of the park. It has a working black Kilkenny marble fireplace with a spectacular gilt over-mantle mirror. The log basket is fully stocked with fuel- we charge cost price on an 'honour system'.

A small library of Irish books, and DVD's is available. The bedroom is upstairs and overlooks the apartment. It has a comfortable contract-quality double bed, Siberian white goose down duvet and pillows and pure Pima/Egyptian cotton sheets. Read in comfort with vintage Anglepoise reading lights. PLEASE NOTE there is restricted headroom in the sleeping loft, and consequently, the bed is low. ALSO, while the apartment faces a relatively quiet side street, it is on the corner of a fairly busy main road, so there will be traffic noise....

KARIN'S GUIDE TO THE CITY LOCAL GROCERY SHOPPING, SERVICES AND BREAKFAST OPTIONS In general, shopping hours are 9.30-6pm, with late-night shopping till 8pm on Thursdays. Sunday opening is from noon. BREAKFAST The Kingfisher Café, a no-frills 'caff' on the corner of Parnell Square and Parnell Street West is good for breakfast, with friendly and efficient service. Good value, and good fish and chips later in the day. The Old Music Store on North Frederick Street, a few blocks NW of us, does a good Irish breakfast in comfortable surroundings. LOCAL GROCERY SHOPPING Tops in Pops, just down the street to the right, for fresh local produce and basic groceries, 8.30am to 6pm Monday to Saturday. They are a fourth-generation local business, who have been trading on the site since 1931. The Londis corner store next door opens 8am to 10pm, but charge for privilege. There is an ATM machine at the back, right hand side of the store. Dunne's Stores, is the indigenous supermarket and department store chain, and has branches in every sizeable town throughout the country. There are two local branches. In North Earl Street, opposite O’Connell Street’s Spire, the Off-Licence (liquor store) is in a separate premises, a few doors apart - look for the James Joyce statue. You will find a bigger branch in the ILAC Shopping Centre, flanked by Henry Street, Moore Street and Parnell Street West (Moore Street entrance is opposite Paris Bakery). There is Metro Tesco on Parnell Street West, just past the Rotunda Hospital. A main branch is to be found in the basement of the Jervis Centre, off Henry Street. Carney’s Butchers, is another multi-generational local family business, which prides itself on the quality of its meat. In keeping with local tradition, they sell fresh fish on Friday’s. F.X. Buckley’s Butchers have two local branches; Moore Street and Talbot Street. This is a very old Dublin business and they have everything; free-range pork, beef and lamb from their own herds, poultry, game in season and fish, and, in the Moore Street branch, a deli counter for cooked meats next door. They are very obliging, and the lads have a great line in smart (sassy) chat. PHARMACIES Foley's Pharmacy on Parnell Street East is a 100+ year-old family business; they are very helpful. Opening hours: Monday-Saturday 9am 6pm. There is a late-night pharmacy, Hickey’s at 55 Lower O’Connell Street, (west side, within the block closest to the river). Opening hours: 8am -10pm M-F, 8.30am-10pm Saturday. 10am 10pm Sunday. Web: (EMAIL HIDDEN) POST OFFICES Our nearest Post Office is the Main City Post Office, the GPO, on O’Connell Street. 1828 façade, but badly damaged in the 1916 Rising, and largely rebuilt in 1928. The main hall is beautiful, with its entire original, 1928, fittings intact. It also contains the iconic statue, by Oliver Shepherd, The Dying Cuchullain. You will find a booklet with postal rates in the black folder. BANKS Allied Irish Bank has a branch on O’Connell Street, at the SW junction with Parnell Street, opposite the Rotunda Hospital. There is a bank of ATMs in the wall, on the O'Connell Street facade. Bank of Ireland has a branch at Lower O’Connell Street, on the east side of the street, between Middle Abbey Street and Ashton Quay. ATM inside, opens 8am to 9pm.

Call for appointment. Tel:(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN). NORTHSIDE LOCAL RESTAURANTS AND CAFES: 'The Cobalt Cafe', in a beautiful Georgian house on North Great Georges Street, which doubles as a gallery, is great for lunch. Parnell Street, Dublin's emerging 'Chinatown' is just a half a block to the south. Mr Fox, on Parnell Square West is our local fine dining restaurant, serving modern Irish food in a smart and comfortable setting. The menu is interesting and inventive, and they have a separate vegetarian menu, which has had the same care lavished on it. Nearer the river, 'Le Bon Crubeen' (crubeen=pig's trotter- it's a modern Franco-Irish restaurant) is on Talbot Street, as is the venerable and immensely popular 'Talbot 101'. It is packed to the gunnels with locals between 5.54 and 7.15, enjoying their pre-theatre supper before the Abbey curtains rise at 7.30, when they relinquish their seats for the rest of us! On the riverfront, I love Panem, facing the Millennium Bridge, for a quick coffee and a delicious Sicilian almond biscuit, baked on the premises. A few doors down, you'll find a cluster of Italian bars, cafes and restaurants serving good quality food. Half a block to the east is the trendy 'Winding Stairs' restaurant, with its book-lined walls (relics of a former second-hand bookshop-cum-cafe of the same name), while The Woollen Mills, opposite the Halfpenny Bridge, has a sophisticated casual menu, based on 'plates' for sharing.Back on Capel Street, locals rave about Brother Hubbard for lunch. LOCAL PUBS include the 'Hill 16' just opposite the house, on Gardiner Street - very popular with the GAA crowd on match days (the Gaelic Athletic Association Stadium, Croke Park, is just 3 blocks to the east), they pull a superb 'pint'. ‘The Heritage Parnell’, on Parnell Street West, just around the corner from O’Connell Street 'The Flowing Tide', on the corner of Marlborough Street, opposite the Abbey Theatre, is one of my favorites - after the curtain goes down in the Abbey, half the cast are likely to be at the bar. A few doors closer to O’Connell Street is Mulligan’s, another very nice pub, dating from the Edwardian era. 'The Church' on Mary Street, in a converted 1720's church, is another fine place for a drink; the former owner won many accolades for the high quality of the restoration. Capel Street has many typical local pubs, which have the added benefit of serving a largely local population. They include Mc’Neill’s' which is good for traditional music, and Slattery's . 'The Black Sheep' has the local craft beers covered, and does good bar food, (as does its sister pub, ‘The Brew Dock’, on Store Street, at the bottom of Gardiner Street. The north side traditional music 'musician’s' bar is 'The Cobblestone', at the top of Smithfield, and is suitably grungy. DEPARTMENT STORES AND FASHION Henry Street, off O’Connell Street, to the West, at the SPIRE, is the premier shopping street on the north side of the river. Here you will find Arnott’s the local department store, which highlights Irish fashion and design, throughout the store, and has several nice cafes. Henry Street also contains large branches of Debenhams and Marks&Spencers, as well as branches of most of the high street fashion chains. There are two large shopping centres, the Jervis, with a large branch of Tesco’s in the Basement, and the ILAC, which has a Dunnes Department Store, with a Food Hall in the basement. (You can shop for fresh produce on adjacent Moore Street, Dublin's oldest street market, now also home to a thriving cluster of ethnic food markets and restaurants.) NORTHSIDE CULTURAL ATTRACTIONS The North side of Parnell Square is home to the city's Hugh Lane Gallery of Modern Art; we share a significant collection of Impressionist painting with the Tate Gallery in London, part of the Hugh Lane Bequest, which is rotated in seven-year cycles. Next door is the Writer's Centre, and next door again, is the Writer's Museum, with a Michelin-starred restaurant in the basement, the amazing Chapter One. Down on the East side of Parnell Square is the beautiful jewel-box that is the Gate Theatre - part of the 18th-century entertainment complex established by the entrepreneurial Dr. Bartholomew, to help support his new Rotunda Maternity Hospital (the oldest purpose-built such hospital in the world, and still delivering babies on a daily basis, 270 years later (9000 is 2012). You could be seated in either the Abbey or Gate Theatres within 10 minutes of leaving the house, and the James Joyce Cultural Centre is even closer, on North Great Georges Street (don't forget to check out the Cobalt Cafe, opposite). Hop on the Luas Red Line, going west, in Abbey Street, halfway between Mountjoy Square and the river, and you will be dropped at the ‘Museum’. The National Museum, Collins Barracks, housed in an old military barracks, dating from 1702, contains the Decorative Arts Collections, (basically, everything post 1700). Descend at the next stop, ‘Heuston’ for IMMA, Ireland's National Museum of Modern Art, housed in the old Kilmainham Hospital, built in the1660’s. It pre-dates the more famous Chelsea Hospital in London by several years. Not to be missed is the Old Jameson Distillery, in Smithfield. Jameson was distilled here until 1971, when three historic distilleries amalgamated, and centralized distilling in Midleton, Co. Cork. The Museum is very well presented; one is guided around the distilling floor, among the huge old pot stills before retiring to the Bar to sample the goods. Nearby is one of the oldest churches in Dublin, St.Michan’s, on Church Street, dating from the mid-11thc. There are several mummified bodies in the basement, thought to be Crusaders. When I was a child, one was allowed to shake their hands….. SOUTHSIDE In the south city centre, the RESTAURANT HUB is in the pedestrian streets to either side of Grafton Street, and in Temple Bar. Particular favourites of mine include: * Nede, Temple Bar Square * Eden Bar and Grill, South William Street * The Green Hen, Wicklow Street * Fallon and Byrne, Exchequer Street, basement wine-bar, full service restaurant first- floor, and coffee bar within the food-hall on the ground floor. * Fade Street Social, Fade Street, tapas bar and full-service restaurant. * The Rustic Stone, Exchequer Street, upmarket, sophisticated and healthy ‘fast food’. * Cornucopia, Wicklow Street- vegetarian café day, full service by evening. * The Port House, South William Street, wine bar and tapas. * Pinxto, Crowe Street, Temple Bar, as above, same management. Southside city-centre TRADITIONAL PUBS we like are: * Mulligan's, Poolbeg Street * Neary's, Chatham Street * Grogan’s, South William Street * International Bar, Wicklow Street * O'Neill's, Suffolk Street * The Dawson Lounge, Dawson Street * The Stag's Head, Connaught Court * The Long Hall, South Great Georges Street * Doheny and Nesbitt’s, Merrion Row * Kehoe’s, South Anne Street * The Duke, Duke Street Fronting the river, TEMPLE BAR, with its vibrant mix of independent shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs, markets and cultural institutions occupies an area three blocks deep and ten blocks long. At the western end, look out for the two branches of the Queen of Tarts- a wonderful teas shop that offers really good home baking and teas and coffees, all served on mismatched antique china (Lord Edward Street and Cow's Lane). TEMPLE BAR FARMERS MARKET, is held every Saturday in Meeting House Square, 9-4.30, now has a smart new tensile roof for wet days, and is a good place to rub shoulders with the locals, whilst sampling local food culture. Don’t miss the Oyster Stall, Hick’s Pork Butchers, or David Llewyllan’s fantastic ‘Double L’ local cider- 100% apple (not even water), and the two local cheese stalls, among others. Don’t’ forget to check out the overflow stalls on Curved Street, where Rossa Crowe’s fantastic bread is on offer- Rossa took himself off to France for two years to train, and now produces slow fermented breads, made with the very best organic flours. TRINITY COLLEGE is a good orientation point; from here it is easy to find the mediaeval core, the cultural/political hub of the country around Kildare Street, and the Grafton Street fashion hub. The campus occupies a 40-acre (16ha.) site, and is over 400 years old, though what one sees today are mainly beautiful eighteenth-century buildings. It is worth a wander around, after a visit to spectacular Long Library, to see the Book of Kells and other illustrated Celtic manuscripts. From Front Gate, look south to Grafton Street or west up College Green and Dame Street, which lead to the mediaeval core. At the brow of the hill you will find: * Dublin Castle (visit the State Apartments, the Chester Beatty Library and the lovely garden in front (which is actually the helicopter-landing pad for the Castle). * The City Hall with its 'Museum of the Capital' in the basement is worth a look- the Hall is free, and there is a nominal charge for the Museum. * Christchurch Cathedral * Dublinia-in the Christchurch Chapterhouse (Viking Exhibition). * Old Saint Audeon's Church, built almost into the city wall. * St Patrick's Cathedral, and historic park beside. * Marshe's Library-the oldest public library in these islands, 1701. * Francis Street- the Antiques Quarter. * Thomas Street/Meath Street, for a touch of 'Old Dublin'. * The Guinness Storehouse. * Royal Hospital, Kilmainham, (IMMA) Ireland's National Gallery of Modern Art, with its wonderful, recently restored formal garden. KILMINHAM GAOL is worth a visit, and tells the story of Irish Nationalism. It can be reached via the grounds of IMMA, passing Bully’s Acre, and old graveyard, where Brian Boru was reputedly rested on his way to his final burial place in Armagh. Alternatively, exit onto Nassau Street, with its cluster of high-quality shops showcasing the best of Irish crafts - fashion, knitwear, weaving, glassware, ceramics and contemporary jewellery - the Kilkenny Shop has a great cafe upstairs, with views over College Park. Continue along the College Park railings till you reach Kildare Street, the cultural-institutional hub of the country. All of our national cultural institutions have free admission. Here you will find the National Library, and the National Museum, facing each other over the forecourt of Leinster House, home to the Oireachtas, our National Parliament. The National Library has a lovely exhibit on the poet, W.B. Yeats, and the Treasury, in the National Museum houses both the Bronze Age and Early Christian collections. On the opposite side of the block, on Merrion Street/Merrion Square, you will find the National Gallery, and the Natural History Museum (known to Dubliner's of my father's generation, as 'The Dead Zoo’. This is a very refreshing look to the past, with absolutely no interpretation, and nothing, not even a postcard, to buy). The National Gallery is halfway through a four-year renovation programme; in the meantime, the Millennium Wing, on Clare Street, has a ‘highlights of’ exhibition, and the Café and Gift Shop are also accessed via the Clare Street Entrance. GETTING AROUND Two operators offer Hop-On/Hop-Off tours: (URL HIDDEN) (URL HIDDEN) They both offer a 2-day ticket, and cost roughly the same price - check them out online before you make up your mind. One can buy an integrated LEAP card in most newsagents, at train stations, and in the Dublin Bus Head Office at 42 O’Connell Street (on the west side of the street, just north of the Spire). This can be used on the LUAS, DART, some suburban mainline trains, and on Dublin Bus routes. There is also a 3-day tourist pass, the Freedom Ticket, which provides good value. €28 will give you 72 hours transport, starting at the Airport; Airlink from the airport, the Hop-On-Hop –Off tourist bus and all local bus routes. Web: (URL HIDDEN) •The DART, the local electric commuter train, runs north/south along the coast. The northside city centre station is Connolly, on Amiens Street, facing Talbot Street, but I usually suggest people use Tara Street, as Connolly is also a mainline station, and is very big, and a bit confusing. Tara is purely a commuter station, and is about the same distance. It is on George’s Quay, just south of the Custom House. The other south-side city centre station is Pearse, on Westland Row, at the south end of the Trinity campus. •The LUAS Red Line runs east-west through the north side of the city, as far east as the docks, and serves both Connolly and Heuston mainline stations. The nearest stop to Mountjoy Square is Abbey, on Middle Abbey Street, opposite the Abbey Theatre. The LUAS Green Line serves the south suburbs; Ranelagh, Dundrum, Leopardstown Racecourse, and on out to Cherrywood, on the county boundary with Wicklow. •Main cross-city bus routes run north-south through O’Connell Street. The No.7 terminates on Mountjoy Square North, and there is a ‘shopper’s fare’ of 70c, to Grafton Street- alight at Trinity. On the return journey it skirts the Trinity campus and comes along Pearse, to the east of the campus - catch it on Clare Street, at the Millennium wing of the National Gallery. •DUBLIN BIKES are free to use for the first half hour, and have a stand on Mountjoy Square West, but one needs to go to the Princes Street stand (to the right hand side of the General Post Office (GPO)), to purchase a short term card. It costs €2, and is only available to credit card holders. SHOPPING WITH A DIFFERENCE Those interested in the local fashion, art and design scene should look out for the following addresses (in no particular order): •Designist, South Great George's Street (stock chosen for good design) •Irish Design Store, Drury Street •Article, Powerscourt Townhouse Centre (housewares) •Irish Designer Store, Top floor Powerscourt Townhouse Centre •Cow's Lane Gallery, Temple Bar (artist’s collective) •The Jam Factory, Nicholas Street (artist’s collective) •Avoca, Suffolk Street •Kilkenny Shop, Nassau Street •Designyard, South Frederick Street (jewellery) •Louise Kennedy, couturier, Merrion Square, and Tipperary Crystal •Gallery Zozimus, Francis Street (art gallery and carefully chosen crafts) •Graphic Studio Gallery, Temple Bar (artist-printmaker’s gallery) •Magee's of Donegal, Duke Street, and, •Kevin and Howlin, Nassau Street have hand-woven tweeds covered. •Dubarry's, College Green produce wonderful, country-style outerwear, including the most perfect alternative to sweaty, waterproof Wellington boots… •Monaghan's, Hibernian Way, the House of Ireland on Nassau Street and the Sweater Shops on Wicklow Street and Nassau Street has the best selections of traditional knitwear. Monaghan's specialise in cashmere. •The Cloth Shop, St. William Street, for interesting designer fabric, including a good selection of Irish Linen, and Liberty of London INDEPENDENT BOOKSHOPS and MUSIC STORES Eason’s, O’Connell Street, is a Dublin institution for over 100 years. It encompasses a large stationery department, a branch of Tower Records on the top floor, academic books in the basement, a nice café and two floors of general books. It is a good place to browse books of Irish interest, and they have a really good Information Desk. Chapters, Parnell Street West is my ‘local’. John Gannon is one of the best booksellers in the business, and his staff are hand-picked enthusiastic bibliophiles, one and all. Stock is a mixture of the latest releases, and carefully chosen remaindered books. Their ordering service is superlative, and they ALWAYS know exactly what one is talking about, even with just the vaguest, half-remembered clues from a newspaper review. Very strong on contemporary fiction, natural history, non-fiction and books of Irish interest. Extensive second-hand section upstairs. The Secret Bookstore, Wicklow Street is another favourite. It’s tucked away down a passage, near the L’Occitane shop and often throws up gems among its large second-hand stock. An eclectic music store occupies the rear of the shop. Cathach Rare Books, Duke Street, specializes in Irish first editions, and have an interesting selection of Irish maps and prints. Stokes Books is another interesting antiquarian/secondhand shop, specializing in books of Irish interest. You’ll find it in Georges Street Arcade. Claddagh Records, Cecelia Street, Temple Bar, is primarily a music publisher, but they have a retail outlet in Temple Bar, which is the oldest independent music shop in Dublin, and specializes in traditional Irish music, with some interesting World Music additions. PLACES OF WORSHIP: Roman Catholic: Many Catholic churches have Mass on Saturday evening, in addition to morning Masses. •St. Francis Xavier Roman Catholic Church, Upper Gardiner Street. Gospel Mass, 7.30pm Sundays, September to mid June. •St. Mary's Metropolitan Church - the Pro-Cathedral, Marlborough. Sung Mass, 11am, Sundays, with the Palestrina Choir. •St. Joseph’s Church, Berkeley Road, Dublin 7. •St. Teresa’s Church, Clarendon Street Church, choir sings at 11 o’clock Mass, Sunday’s •St. Peter’s Church, Phibsborough, Dublin 7, has wonderful Harry Clarke ((PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)) stained glass windows. •Whitefriars Street Church, Aungier Street, church has relics of St. Valentine.

SHORT TRIPS OUTSIDE THE CITY BY PUBLIC TRANSPORT NORTH: Catch the No.46A bus, (heading north on O'Connell Street to the Phoenix Park- the largest enclosed urban park in the world, 1750 acres behind a seven-mile-long stone wall. Ashtown Castle Interpretive Centre, with its wonderful walled garden and café is a good place to orient oneself. From here, on Saturdays, it is possible to visit Aras an Uachtarian, the official residence of our President. One can also visit Farmliegh, the Official State Guesthouse, a former Guinness mansion. Among it’s attractions are an art gallery, café, occasional free concerts, and regular weekend Farmer’s Markets. The Park also houses the Dublin Zoo, (1827, the second-oldest Zoo in the world, after London’s Regent Park Zoo). Several herd of Fallow Deer roam at liberty. Many sports are catered for; there is Polo ground, a cricket club, and lots soccer pitches. The Duke of Wellington is commemorated by a marvelous granite obelisk, which can be seen for miles. The area know as the Forty Acres affords superb views over the city, with the Royal Hospital and Guinness in the foreground, along the south side of the River Liffey. Phoenix Park can also be reached via the LUAS Red Line, direction Tallagh, heading west. Alight at 'Museum' and take a detour into the National Museum-Collins Barracks, which houses the Decorative Arts, post-1700, wonderful collections of silver, furniture, glass and other artifacts. Just up the road, in Glasnevin there are three worthwhile attractions: Glasnevin Cemetary, was founded by Daniel O’Connell as one of his first initiatives, post Catholic Emancipation in 1829, to provide a dignified place for Catholic burial. The Glasnevin Musuem is new, and has superlative displays of Nationalist history. They also have a very good Geneology Department. The National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin, date from the end of 18thC. Though relatively small, they contain an internationally-aclaimed collection of plants and three iconic Glasshouses, by Turner of Dublin, which have all been restored in the recent past. There is a nice café in the Gardens, and entry is free. The Gravedigger’s Pub, over-looking a Green, is not to be missed. It got its name from the fact that there used to be a hatch in the rear wall, through which the gravediggers were served. They do nice simple pub food, and one can sit outside on sunny days. Walk back into town, and stop at either the The Botanic Bar at Harte’s Corner or the Brian Borus, typicl local bars. The Porter House, at Cross Guns Bridge, which is a micro-brewery, with nice food, is on the corner of the Royal Canal. Take a stroll east down the canal bank, and you will see swans, and moor-hens going about their business. At the next bridge, at Dorset Street look out for the lifesize bronze statue of Brendan Behan, a local author. From here is just a few minute’s stroll up Belvidere Place, with its charming stepped terraces of tall Georgian houses, to Mountjoy Square. Another favorite is the Marino Casino, in Fairview/Clontarf, an early 18th century pleasure house, built to the design of Sir William Chambers, for Lord Charlemont, purely for entertaining, also just a few miles by bus, north of the city centre. Catch the DART, the coastal commuter train, heading north, at Tara Street Station, on the South Liffey quays, at Butt Bridge, and take a short ride. You have the choice of Howth (a working fishing village) or Malahide. Howth Demesne or Howth Head, behind the village will both afford walks with great views; the Harbour has a dozen restaurants along the quay- ranging from take-out fish and chips to the very upmarket. Book an early-evening window table at Aqua, and be astonished by the sunset over the coast, looking north-west. Another favourite of mine is Deep, midway along the quay (and do watch out for the local tame and greedy Harbour Seal, who begs shamelessly from the trawler men, who tie up alongside). Malahide is a charming village, with some of the most expensive urban residential properties in the country. Good food and good shopping are to be had here. On the edge of the village you will find Malahide Castle and Demesne, open to the public, which includes a renowned private Arboretum, as Milo de Malahide, the last of his family, (who had occupied the castle continuously since Norman times, in the 10th-12th centuries) was a significant plants-man. The Castle contains the National Portrait Collection, as was as magnificent furniture and other contents. There is a smart new branch of the AVOCA Shop and Café in the Courtyard. SOUTH: South of the city you will find Rathfarnham Castle, and its Berkeley Costume and Toy Collection. Marley Park is a little further, just at the foot of the Dublin Mountains. It has wonderful parkland with easy walks, and a magnificent walled garden with a nice cafe. The No.16 bus, from O’Connell Street will leave you close by. Powerscourt is at the edge of Enniskerry, its associated estate village, at the end of the No.44 bus route, which winds its way through the south side suburbs, into Wicklow, through the Scalp, a deep and picturesque glacial valley. The 19th century gardens are fabulous, and make great use of the 'borrowed landscape' beyond. The terrace and Nepture fountain are centred on the Sugarloaf mountain, which marks the beginning of the Wicklow Mountains. The Powerscourt Waterfall, part of the same estate, is a few miles further on, and there are beautiful, way-marked, woodland and moorland walks in the hills nearby. Do be mindful; these ‘mountains’ can be deceptive- while not high, they can be treacherous, as weather conditions can change in minutes. Stick to the way-marked paths, and do keep an eye on the weather. Take the DART south to Bray and Greystones - via Dun Loughaire, Dalkey and Killiney - all interesting villages, with many cafes and restaurants. Killiney Hill, with its eighteenth century obelisk at the summit, is a short climb that results in amazing views over Dublin Bay, and down into the Wicklow Mountains beyond. There is a nice pub in in the ‘village’- ‘The Druid’s Chair’. Dalkey is a charming village with old-fashioned shops and lots of nice pubs, cafes and restaurants. The local Dalkey Castle Heritage Centre, is worth checking out, and in the summer run a theatre programme, and walking tours. Bray Esplanade is a classic Victorian seaside amenity, sturdily built from local granite - the perfect place to enjoy an ice-cream. Campo di Fiori, either the Restaurant or the Café, both near the train station and the north end of the Promenade, are particular favourites of mine. If one is feeling energetic, one could contemplate the Cliff Walk from Bray to Greystones - 4miles/6km along the rough cliff path. Lots of nice pubs for a pint of Guinness at the other end, The Hungry Pear is my favourite café, among many. The DART will take you straight back into the city. But.. make sure to do it in the morning, as by mid-day the path is in shade, and it can be windy and cold. WEST: Travelling into the rich plains of Kildare, by the No. 67 bus route, you will come to the historic village of Celbridge, just twelve miles from the city centre. Castletown House is Ireland's finest Palladian mansion, and was saved from destruction by Desmond Guinness, in the early 1960's. He purchased it from the construction company who had acquired it. They intended to demolish it, to make way for a vast suburban housing estate. The Irish Georgian Society, founded by Desmond Guinness, restored the house and furnished it with the help of many volunteers and sponsors, and opened it to the public, a heroic task for a small membership conservation society. Today, it is in State ownership, and it is the flagship Georgian heritage property of Ireland. It is beautifully presented, and the parklands are undergoing restoration. A local bus, or the commuter train from Connolly Station in Amiens Street, will take one to Maynooth, a charming University town, with another magnificent Palladian mansion, Carton House, now operating as a very upmarket hotel and golf club. Lots of companies offer day-long coach tours. Some involve very long days, i.e, Cliffs of Moher in Clare and the Giant’s Causeway on the Antrim coast. Two more local, and very worthwhile ones are either: The Boyne Valley Tour (Newgrange Neolithic ( 5000 yr old World Heritage Site) / Mellifont Cistercian ruins- (12thC.)/ Monasterboice Early Christian (6th-8thC.) The Wicklow-Glendalough Tour (Powerscourt / Wicklow Mountains National Park and Glendalough (Glen of the Two Lakes) a 6thC. Early Christian site, in beautiful wooded valley. Details of both of these trips, and others, are available in the big black folder in the apartment.
A beautiful, historic, residential square, built in 1790's, within 5-10 minutes walk of the city centre. Elegance and convenience combined with a bit of inner city grittiness. I have loved it all, since 1978!

KARIN'S GUIDE TO THE CITY LOCAL GROCERY SHOPPING, SERVICES AND BREAKFAST OPTIONS In general, shopping hours are 9.30-6pm, with late-night shopping till 8pm on Thursdays. Sunday opening is from noon. BREAKFAST The Old Music Store, on North Frederick Street is comfortable and offers a good cooked breakfast. The no-frills Kingfisher Café, on the corner of Parnell Square and Parnell Street West offers a good freshly cooked Irish breakfast and very good fish and chips later in the day. LOCAL GROCERY SHOPPING Tops in Pops, just down the street to the right, for fresh local produce and basic groceries, 8.30am to 6pm Monday to Saturday. They are a fourth-generation local business, who have been trading on the site since 1931. The Londis corner store next door opens 8am to 10pm, but charge for privilege. There is an ATM machine at the back, right hand side of the store. Dunne's Stores, is the indigenous supermarket and department store chain, and has branches in every sizeable town throughout the country. There are two local branches. In North Earl Street, opposite O’Connell Street’s Spire, the Off-Licence (liquor store) is in a separate premises, a few doors apart - look for the James Joyce statue. You will find a bigger branch in the ILAC Shopping Centre, flanked by Henry Street, Moore Street and Parnell Street West (Moore Street entrance is opposite Paris Bakery). There is Metro Tesco on Parnell Street West, just past the Rotunda Hospital. A main branch is to be found in the basement of the Jervis Centre, off Henry Street. Carney’s Butchers, is another multi-generational local family business, which prides itself on the quality of its meat. In keeping with local tradition, they sell fresh fish on Friday’s. F.X. Buckley’s Butchers have two local branches; Moore Street and Talbot Street. This is a very old Dublin business and they have everything; free-range pork, beef and lamb from their own herds, poultry, game in season and fish, and, in the Moore Street branch, a deli counter for cooked meats next door. They are very obliging, and the lads have a great line in smart (sassy) chat. PHARMACIES Foley's Pharmacy on Parnell Street East is a 100+ year-old family business; they are very helpful. Opening hours: Monday-Saturday 9am 6pm. There is a late-night pharmacy, Hickey’s at 55 Lower O’Connell Street, (west side, within the block closest to the river). Opening hours: 8am -10pm M-F, 8.30am-10pm Saturday. 10am 10pm Sunday. Web: (email hidden) POST OFFICES Nearest Post Office is Parnell Street East, at corner of Marlborough Street, but much nicer is the GPO, O’Connell Street. 1828 façade, but badly damaged in the 1916 Rising, and largely rebuilt in 1928. The main hall is beautiful, with its entire original, 1928, fittings intact. It also contains the iconic statue, by Oliver Shepherd, The Dying Cuchullin. You will find a booklet with postal rates in the black folder. BANKS Allied Irish Bank has a branch on O’Connell Street, at the SW junction with Parnell Street, opposite the Rotunda Hospital. ATM in the wall. Bank of Ireland has a branch at Lower O’Connell Street, on the east side of the street, between Middle Abbey Street and Ashton Quay.

Call for (website hidden)(phone number hidden). NORTHSIDE LOCAL RESTAURANTS: 'The Cobalt Cafe', in a beautiful Georgian house on North Great Georges Street, which doubles as a gallery, is great for lunch. Parnell Street, Dublin's emerging 'Chinatown' is just a half a block to the south. Newly opened, on Parnell Square West is 'Mr.Fox', serving modern Irish food in a smart and comfortable setting. Nearer the river, 'Le Bon Crubeen' (crubeen=pig's trotter- it's a modern Franco-Irish restaurant) is on Talbot Street, as is the venerable and immensely popular 'Talbot 101'. It is packed to the gunnels with locals between 5.54 and 7.15, enjoying their pre-theatre supper before the Abbey curtains rise at 7.30, when they relinquish their seats for the rest of us! On the riverfront, I love Panem, facing the Millennium Bridge, for a quick coffee and a delicious Sicilian almond biscuit, baked on the premises. A few doors down, you'll find a cluster of Italian bars, cafes and restaurants serving good quality food. Half a block to the east is the trendy 'Winding Stairs' restaurant, with its book-lined walls (relics of a former second-hand bookshop-cum-cafe of the same name), and it's sister restaurant, The Woollen Mills, while back on Capel Street, locals rave about Brother Hubbard for lunch. LOCAL PUBS include the 'Hill 16' just opposite the house, on Gardiner Street - very popular with the GAA crowd on match days (the Gaelic Athletic Association Stadium, Croke Park, is just 3 blocks to the east), they pull a superb 'pint'. ‘The Heritage Parnell’, on Parnell Street West, just around the corner from O’Connell Street 'The Flowing Tide', on the corner of Marlborough Street, opposite the Abbey Theatre, is one of my favorites - after the curtain goes down in the Abbey, half the cast are likely to be at the bar. A few doors closer to O’Connell Street is Mulligan’s, another very nice pub, dating from the Edwardian era. 'The Church' on Mary Street, in a converted 1720's church, is another fine place for a drink; the former owner won many accolades for the high quality of the restoration. Capel Street has many typical local pubs, which have the added benefit of serving a largely local population. They include 'O’Neill’s' and 'Slattery's which is good for music. 'The Black Sheep' has the local craft beers covered, and does good bar food, (as does its sister pub, ‘The Brew Dock’, on Store Street, at the bottom of Gardiner Street. The north side traditional music 'musician’s' bar is 'The Cobblestone', at the top of Smithfield, and is suitably grungy. DEPARTMENT STORES AND FASHION Henry Street, off O’Connell Street, at the SPIRE, is the premier shopping street on the north side of the river. Here you will find Arnott’s the local department store, which highlights Irish fashion and design, throughout the store, and has several nice cafes. Henry Street also contains large branches of Debenhams and Marks&Spencers, as well as branches of most of the high street fashion chains. There are two large shopping centres, the Jervis, with a large branch of Tesco’s in the Basement, and the ILAC, which has a Dunnes Department Store, with a Food Hall in the basement. (You can shop for fresh produce on adjacent Moore Street, Dublin's oldest street market, now also home to a thriving cluster of ethnic food markets and restaurants.) NORTHSIDE CULTURAL ATTRACTIONS The North side of Parnell Square is home to the city's Hugh Lane Gallery of Modern Art; we share a significant collection of Impressionist painting with the Tate Gallery in London, part of the Hugh Lane Bequest, which is rotated in seven-year cycles. Next door is the Writer's Centre, and next door again, is the Writer's Museum, with a Michelin-starred restaurant in the basement, the amazing Chapter One. Down on the East side of Parnell Square is the beautiful jewel-box that is the Gate Theatre - part of the 18th-century entertainment complex established by the entrepreneurial Dr. Bartholomew, to help support his new Rotunda Maternity Hospital (the oldest purpose-built such hospital in the world, and still delivering babies on a daily basis, 270 years later (9000 is 2012). You could be seated in either the Abbey or Gate Theatres within 10 minutes of leaving the house, and the James Joyce Cultural Centre is even closer, on North Great Georges Street (don't forget to check out the Cobalt Cafe, opposite). Hop on the Luas Red Line, going west, in Abbey Street, halfway between Mountjoy Square and the river, and you will be dropped at the ‘Museum’. The National Museum, Collins Barracks, housed in an old military barracks, dating from 1702, contains the Decorative Arts Collections, (basically, everything post 1700). Descend at the next stop, ‘Heuston’ for IMMA, Ireland's National Museum of Modern Art, housed in the old Kilmainham Hospital, built in the1660’s. It pre-dates the more famous Chelsea Hospital in London by several years. Not to be missed is the Old Jameson Distillery, in Smithfield. Jameson was distilled here until 1971, when three historic distilleries amalgamated, and centralized distilling in Midleton, Co. Cork. The Museum is very well presented; one is guided around the distilling floor, among the huge old pot stills before retiring to the Bar to sample the goods. Nearby is one of the oldest churches in Dublin, St.Michan’s, on Church Street, dating from the mid-11thc. There are several mummified bodies in the basement, thought to be Crusaders. When I was a child, one was allowed to shake their hands….. SOUTHSIDE In the south city centre, the RESTAURANT HUB is in the pedestrian streets to either side of Grafton Street, and in Temple Bar. Particular favourites of mine include: * Nede, Temple Bar Square * Eden Bar and Grill, South William Street * The Green Hen, Wicklow Street * Fallon and Byrne, Exchequer Street, basement wine-bar, full service restaurant first- floor, and coffee bar within the food-hall on the ground floor. * Fade Street Social, Fade Street, tapas bar and full-service restaurant. * The Rustic Stone, Exchequer Street, upmarket, sophisticated and healthy ‘fast food’. * Cornucopia, Wicklow Street- vegetarian café day, full service by evening. * The Port House, South William Street, wine bar and tapas. * Pinxto, Crowe Street, Temple Bar, as above, same management. Southside city-centre TRADITIONAL PUBS we like are: * Mulligan's, Poolbeg Street * Neary's, Chatham Street * Grogan’s, South William Street * International Bar, Wicklow Street * O'Neill's, Suffolk Street * The Dawson Lounge, Dawson Street * The Stag's Head, Connaught Court * The Long Hall, South Great Georges Street * Doheny and Nesbitt’s, Merrion Row * Kehoe’s, South Anne Street * The Duke, Duke Street Fronting the river, TEMPLE BAR, with its vibrant mix of independent shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs, markets and cultural institutions occupies an area three blocks deep and ten blocks long. At the western end, look out for the two branches of the Queen of Tarts- a wonderful teas shop that offers really good home baking and teas and coffees, all served on mismatched antique china (Lord Edward Street and Cow's Lane). TEMPLE BAR FARMERS MARKET, is held every Saturday in Meeting House Square, 9-4.30, now has a smart new tensile roof for wet days, and is a good place to rub shoulders with the locals, whilst sampling local food culture. Don’t miss the Oyster Stall, Hick’s Pork Butchers, or David Llewyllan’s fantastic ‘Double L’ local cider- 100% apple (not even water), and the two local cheese stalls, among others. Don’t’ forget to check out the overflow stalls on Curved Street, where Rossa Crowe’s fantastic bread is on offer- Rossa took himself off to France for two years to train, and now produces slow fermented breads, made with the very best organic flours. NORTHSIDE CULTURAL ATTACTIONS TRINITY COLLEGE is a good orientation point; from here it is easy to find the mediaeval core, the cultural/political hub of the country around Kildare Street, and the Grafton Street fashion hub. The campus occupies a 40-acre (16ha.) site, and is over 400 years old, though what one sees today are mainly beautiful eighteenth-century buildings. It is worth a wander around, after a visit to spectacular Long Library, to see the Book of Kells and other illustrated Celtic manuscripts. From Front Gate, look south to Grafton Street or west up College Green and Dame Street, which lead to the mediaeval core. At the brow of the hill you will find: * Dublin Castle (visit the State Apartments, the Chester Beatty Library and the lovely garden in front (which is actually the helicopter-landing pad for the Castle). * The City Hall with its 'Museum of the Capital' in the basement is worth a look- the Hall is free, and there is a nominal charge for the Museum. * Christchurch Cathedral * Dublinia-in the Christchurch Chapterhouse (Viking Exhibition). * Old Saint Audeon's Church, built almost into the city wall. * St Patrick's Cathedral, and historic park beside. * Marshe's Library-the oldest public library in these islands, 1701. * Francis Street- the Antiques Quarter. * Thomas Street/Meath Street, for a touch of 'Old Dublin'. * The Guinness Storehouse. * Royal Hospital, Kilmainham, (IMMA) Ireland's National Gallery of Modern Art, with its wonderful, recently restored formal garden. KILMINHAM GAOL is worth a visit, and tells the story of Irish Nationalism. It can be reached via the grounds of IMMA, passing Bully’s Acre, and old graveyard, where Brian Boru was reputedly rested on his way to his final burial place in Armagh. Alternatively, exit onto Nassau Street, with its cluster of high-quality shops showcasing the best of Irish crafts - fashion, knitwear, weaving, glassware, ceramics and contemporary jewellery - the Kilkenny Shop has a great cafe upstairs, with views over College Park. Continue along the College Park railings till you reach Kildare Street, the cultural-institutional hub of the country. All of our national cultural institutions have free admission. Here you will find the National Library, and the National Museum, facing each other over the forecourt of Leinster House, home to the Oireachtas, our National Parliament. The National Library has a lovely exhibit on the poet, W.B. Yeats, and the Treasury, in the National Museum houses both the Bronze Age and Early Christian collections. On the opposite side of the block, on Merrion Street/Merrion Square, you will find the National Gallery, and the Natural History Museum (known to Dubliner's of my father's generation, as 'The Dead Zoo’. This is a very refreshing look to the past, with absolutely no interpretation, and nothing, not even a postcard, to buy). The National Gallery is halfway through a four-year renovation programme; in the meantime, the Millennium Wing, on Clare Street, has a ‘highlights of’ exhibition, and the Café and Gift Shop are also accessed via the Clare Street Entrance. GETTING AROUND Two operators offer Hop-On/Hop-Off tours: (website hidden) (website hidden) They both offer a 2-day ticket, and cost roughly the same price - check them out online before you make up your mind. One can buy an integrated LEAP card in most newsagents, at train stations, and in the Dublin Bus Head Office at 42 O’Connell Street (on the west side of the street, just north of the Spire). This can be used on the LUAS, DART, some suburban mainline trains, and on Dublin Bus routes. There is also a 3-day tourist pass, the Freedom Ticket, which provides good value. €28 will give you 72 hours transport, starting at the Airport; Airlink from the airport, the Hop-On-Hop –Off tourist bus and all local bus routes. Web: (website hidden) •The DART, the local electric commuter train, runs north/south along the coast. The northside city centre station is Connolly, on Amiens Street, facing Talbot Street, but I usually suggest people use Tara Street, as Connolly is also a mainline station, and is very big, and a bit confusing. Tara is purely a commuter station, and is about the same distance. It is on George’s Quay, just south of the Custom House. The other south-side city centre station is Pearse, on Westland Row, at the south end of the Trinity campus. •The LUAS Red Line runs east-west through the north side of the city, as far east as the docks, and serves both Connolly and Heuston mainline stations. The nearest stop to Mountjoy Square is Abbey, on Middle Abbey Street, opposite the Abbey Theatre. The LUAS Green Line serves the south suburbs; Ranelagh, Dundrum, Leopardstown Racecourse, and on out to Cherrywood, on the county boundary with Wicklow. •Main cross-city bus routes run north-south through O’Connell Street. The No.7 terminates on Mountjoy Square North, and there is a ‘shopper’s fare’ of 70c, to Grafton Street- alight at Trinity. On the return journey it skirts the Trinity campus and comes along Pearse, to the east of the campus - catch it on Clare Street, at the Millennium wing of the National Gallery. •DUBLIN BIKES are free to use for the first half hour, and have a stand on Mountjoy Square West, but one needs to go to the Princes Street stand (to the right hand side of the General Post Office (GPO)), to purchase a short term card. It costs €2, and is only available to credit card holders. SHOPPING WITH A DIFFERENCE Those interested in the local fashion, art and design scene should look out for the following addresses (in no particular order): •Designist, South Great George's Street (stock chosen for good design) •Irish Design Store, Drury Street •Article, Powerscourt Townhouse Centre (housewares) •Irish Designer Store, Top floor Powerscourt Townhouse Centre •Cow's Lane Gallery, Temple Bar (artist’s collective) •The Jam Factory, Nicholas Street (artist’s collective) •Avoca, Suffolk Street •Kilkenny Shop, Nassau Street •Designyard, South Frederick Street (jewellery) •Louise Kennedy, couturier, Merrion Square, and Tipperary Crystal •Gallery Zozimus, Francis Street (art gallery and carefully chosen crafts) •Graphic Studio Gallery, Temple Bar (artist-printmaker’s gallery) •Malthouse Design Centre and Shop, Distillery Court, 537 North Circular Road, just around the corner from Mountjoy Square (cluster of design-led businesses, 10-5 M-F) •Magee's of Donegal, Wicklow Street, and, •Kevin and Howlin, Nassau Street have hand-woven tweeds covered. •Dubarry's, College Green produce wonderful, country-style outerwear, including the most perfect alternative to sweaty, waterproof Wellington boots… •Monaghan's, Hibernian Way, the House of Ireland on Nassau Street and the Sweater Shops on Wicklow Street and Nassau Street has the best selections of traditional knitwear. Monaghan's specialise in cashmere. •Murphy and Sheehy, Castle Market, stock Irish tweed, Irish linen and a quirky selection of designer fabrics. Look out for their ‘Linen Union (linen/cotton blend) Glass Cloths- the best ever for polishing glassware, they make a super, useful, inexpensive and lightweight traditional gift! •The Cloth Shop, St. William Street, for interesting designer fabric, including a good selection of Irish Linen, and Liberty of London INDEPENDENT BOOKSHOPS and MUSIC STORES Eason’s, O’Connell Street, is a Dublin institution for over 100 years. It encompasses a large stationery department, a branch of Tower Records on the top floor, academic books in the basement, a nice café and two floors of general books. It is a good place to browse books of Irish interest, and they have a really good Information Desk. Chapters, Parnell Street West is my ‘local’. John Gannon is one of the best booksellers in the business, and his staff are hand-picked enthusiastic bibliophiles, one and all. Stock is a mixture of the latest releases, and carefully chosen remaindered books. Their ordering service is superlative, and they ALWAYS know exactly what one is talking about, even with just the vaguest, half-remembered clues from a newspaper review. Very strong on contemporary fiction, natural history, non-fiction and books of Irish interest. Extensive second-hand section upstairs. The Secret Bookstore, Wicklow Street is another favourite. It’s tucked away down a passage, near the L’Occitane shop and often throws up gems among its large second-hand stock. An eclectic music store occupies the rear of the shop. Cathach Rare Books, Duke Street, specializes in Irish first editions, and have an interesting selection of Irish maps and prints. Stokes Books is another interesting antiquarian/secondhand shop, specializing in books of Irish interest. You’ll find it in Georges Street Arcade. Claddagh Records, Cecelia Street, Temple Bar, is primarily a music publisher, but they have a retail outlet in Temple Bar, which is the oldest independent music shop in Dublin, and specializes in traditional Irish music, with some interesting World Music additions. The Celtic Note, on Nassau Street, beside the Kilkenny Shop is another good bet. PLACES OF WORSHIP: Roman Catholic: Many Catholic churches have Mass on Saturday evening, in addition to morning Masses. •St. Francis Xavier Roman Catholic Church, Upper Gardiner Street. Gospel Mass, 7.30pm Sundays, September to mid June. •St. Mary's Metropolitan Church - the Pro-Cathedral, Marlborough. Sung Mass, 11am, Sundays, with the Palestrina Choir. •St. Joseph’s Church, Berkeley Road, Dublin 7. •St. Teresa’s Church, Clarendon Street Church, choir sings at 11 o’clock Mass, Sunday’s •St. Peter’s Church, Phibsborough, Dublin 7, has wonderful Harry Clarke (phone number hidden)) stained glass windows. •Whitefriars Street Church, Aungier Street, church has relics of St. Valentine. Church of Ireland: •Christchurch Cathedral, Christchurch Place, sung Services Sundays, •St. Patrick's Cathedral, Nicholas Street, sung Services Sundays. •St. Anne’s Church, Dawson Street, Dublin 2 Jewish: Dublin Hebrew Congregation (website hidden) Daily services in Synagogue at 32a Rathfarnham Road, Public Transport: Buses: (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN). Get off at Terenure Cross (road). Walk up Rathfarnham Road, pass AIB Bank and one row of terraced houses; shul is next building, with wooden/metal security gates.

SHORT TRIPS OUTSIDE THE CITY BY PUBLIC TRANSPORT NORTH: Catch the No.46A bus, (heading north on O'Connell Street to the Phoenix Park- the largest enclosed urban park in the world, 1750 acres behind a seven-mile-long stone wall. Ashtown Castle Interpretive Centre, with its wonderful walled garden and café is a good place to orient oneself. From here, on Saturdays, it is possible to visit Aras an Uachtarian, the official residence of our President. One can also visit Farmliegh, the Official State Guesthouse, a former Guinness mansion. Among it’s attractions are an art gallery, café, occasional free concerts, and regular weekend Farmer’s Markets. The Park also houses the Dublin Zoo, (1827, the second-oldest Zoo in the world, after London’s Regent Park Zoo). Several herd of Fallow Deer roam at liberty. Many sports are catered for; there is Polo ground, a cricket club, and lots soccer pitches. The Duke of Wellington is commemorated by a marvelous granite obelisk, which can be seen for miles. The area know as the Forty Acres affords superb views over the city, with the Royal Hospital and Guinness in the foreground, along the south side of the River Liffey. Phoenix Park can also be reached via the LUAS Red Line, direction Tallagh, heading west. Alight at 'Museum' and take a detour into the National Museum-Collins Barracks, which houses the Decorative Arts, post-1700, wonderful collections of silver, furniture, glass and other artifacts. Just up the road, in Glasnevin there are three worthwhile attractions: Glasnevin Cemetary, was founded by Daniel O’Connell as one of his first initiatives, post Catholic Emancipation in 1829, to provide a dignified place for Catholic burial. The Glasnevin Musuem is new, and has superlative displays of Nationalist history. They also have a very good Geneology Department. The National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin, date from the end of 18thC. Though relatively small, they contain an internationally-aclaimed collection of plants and three iconic Glasshouses, by Turner of Dublin, which have all been restored in the recent past. There is a nice café in the Gardens, and entry is free. The Gravedigger’s Pub, over-looking a Green, is not to be missed. It got its name from the fact that there used to be a hatch in the rear wall, through which the gravediggers were served. They do nice simple pub food, and one can sit outside on sunny days. Walk back into town, and stop at either the The Botanic Bar at Harte’s Corner or the Brian Borus, typicl local bars. The Porter House, at Cross Guns Bridge, which is a micro-brewery, with nice food, is on the corner of the Royal Canal. Take a stroll east down the canal bank, and you will see swans, and moor-hens going about their business. At the next bridge, at Dorset Street look out for the lifesize bronze statue of Brendan Behan, a local author. From here is just a few minute’s stroll up Belvidere Place, with its charming stepped terraces of tall Georgian houses, to Mountjoy Square. Another favorite is the Marino Casino, in Fairview/Clontarf, an early 18th century pleasure house, built to the design of Sir William Chambers, for Lord Charlemont, purely for entertaining, also just a few miles by bus, north of the city centre. Catch the DART, the coastal commuter train, heading north, at Tara Street Station, on the South Liffey quays, at Butt Bridge, and take a short ride. You have the choice of Howth (a working fishing village) or Malahide. Howth Demesne or Howth Head, behind the village will both afford walks with great views; the Harbour has a dozen restaurants along the quay- ranging from take-out fish and chips to the very upmarket. Book an early-evening window table at Aqua, and be astonished by the sunset over the coast, looking north-west. Another favourite of mine is Deep, midway along the quay (and do watch out for the local tame and greedy Harbour Seal, who begs shamelessly from the trawler men, who tie up alongside). Malahide is a charming village, with some of the most expensive urban residential properties in the country. Good food and good shopping are to be had here. On the edge of the village you will find Malahide Castle and Demesne, open to the public, which includes a renowned private Arboretum, as Milo de Malahide, the last of his family, (who had occupied the castle continuously since Norman times, in the 10th-12th centuries) was a significant plants-man. The Castle contains the National Portrait Collection, as was as magnificent furniture and other contents. There is a smart new branch of the AVOCA Shop and Café in the Courtyard. SOUTH: South of the city you will find Rathfarnham Castle, and its Berkeley Costume and Toy Collection. Marley Park is a little further, just at the foot of the Dublin Mountains. It has wonderful parkland with easy walks, and a magnificent walled garden with a nice cafe. The No.16 bus, from O’Connell Street will leave you close by. Powerscourt is at the edge of Enniskerry, its associated estate village, at the end of the No.44 bus route, which winds its way through the south side suburbs, into Wicklow, through the Scalp, a deep and picturesque glacial valley. The 19th century gardens are fabulous, and make great use of the 'borrowed landscape' beyond. The terrace and Nepture fountain are centred on the Sugarloaf mountain, which marks the beginning of the Wicklow Mountains. The Powerscourt Waterfall, part of the same estate, is a few miles further on, and there are beautiful, way-marked, woodland and moorland walks in the hills nearby. Do be mindful; these ‘mountains’ can be deceptive- while not high, they can be treacherous, as weather conditions can change in minutes. Stick to the way-marked paths, and do keep an eye on the weather. Take the DART south to Bray and Greystones - via Dun Loughaire, Dalkey and Killiney - all interesting villages, with many cafes and restaurants. Killiney Hill, with its eighteenth century obelisk at the summit, is a short climb that results in amazing views over Dublin Bay, and down into the Wicklow Mountains beyond. There is a nice pub in in the ‘village’- ‘The Druid’s Chair’. Dalkey is a charming village with old-fashioned shops and lots of nice pubs, cafes and restaurants. The local Dalkey Castle Heritage Centre, is worth checking out, and in the summer run a theatre programme, and walking tours. Bray Esplanade is a classic Victorian seaside amenity, sturdily built from local granite - the perfect place to enjoy an ice-cream. Campo di Fiori, either the Restaurant or the Café, both near the train station and the north end of the Promenade, are particular favourites of mine. If one is feeling energetic, one could contemplate the Cliff Walk from Bray to Greystones - 4miles/6km along the rough cliff path. Lots of nice pubs for a pint of Guinness at the other end, The Hungry Pear is my favourite café, among many. The DART will take you straight back into the city. But.. make sure to do it in the morning, as by mid-day the path is in shade, and it can be windy and cold. WEST: Travelling into the rich plains of Kildare, by the No. 67 bus route, you will come to the historic village of Celbridge, just twelve miles from the city centre. Castletown House is Ireland's finest Palladian mansion, and was saved from destruction by Desmond Guinness, in the early 1960's. He purchased it from the construction company who had acquired it. They intended to demolish it, to make way for a vast suburban housing estate. The Irish Georgian Society, founded by Desmond Guinness, restored the house and furnished it with the help of many volunteers and sponsors, and opened it to the public, a heroic task for a small membership conservation society. Today, it is in State ownership, and it is the flagship Georgian heritage property of Ireland. It is beautifully presented, and the parklands are undergoing restoration. A local bus, or the commuter train from Connolly Station in Amiens Street, will take one to Maynooth, a charming University town, with another magnificent Palladian mansion, Carton House, now operating as a very upmarket hotel and golf club. Lots of companies offer day-long coach tours. Some involve very long days, i.e, Cliffs of Moher in Clare and the Giant’s Causeway on the Antrim coast. Two more local, and very worthwhile ones are either: The Boyne Valley Tour (Newgrange Neolithic ( 5000 yr old World Heritage Site) / Mellifont Cistercian ruins- (12thC.)/ Monasterboice Early Christian (6th-8thC.) The Wicklow-Glendalough Tour (Powerscourt / Wicklow Mountains National Park and Glendalough (Glen of the Two Lakes) a 6thC. Early Christian site, in beautiful wooded valley. Details of both of these trips, and others, are available in the big black folder in the apartment.
    A beautiful, historic residential square, built in 1790's, within 5-10 minutes walk of down-town city centre. Elegance and convenience combined with a bit of inner city grittiness. I have loved it all, since 1978! Mountjoy Square is situated just NE of the historic city centre, within walking distance of just about all the main city attractions. It is the most densely populated area in the entire city: 1500 people have front doors opening onto the Square. The house fronts onto a 4acre/1.5ha park, across a fairly busy street. This apartment faces the side street, so it is quieter, but you will still hear traffic.....Please bear in mind that this is NOT LEAFY SUBURBIA, but a vibrant, living city community and it's definitely gritty in places... Having said that, I have lived here, uneventfully, for nearly 38 years, and consider the trade-offs well worth it, for the excitement and convenience of having the city on my doorstep..
  • Precioso piso en Dublín! Excelente ubicación y sorprendente edificio histórico.

    Andrew2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • El loft era exactamente como se describe y tuvimos una maravillosa estancia!

    Shelby2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Tuve una estancia encantadora y cómoda aquí! ¡Esta ubicación también es un paseo fácil al corazón de Dublín! Hay varios pubs a una corta distancia a pie también para beber de forma segura durante la noche. Me encantaría volver y quedarme aquí de nuevo. Karin proporciona una guía exhaustiva de la ciudad y me facilitó la navegación y descubrí lo que quería hacer. Te sugiero que traigas tus propias toallas si prefieres toallas de algodón. Karin amablemente proporciona toallas, pero pueden ser un poco ásperas para algunos. Elegí este Airbnb principalmente porque tiene una cocina y fue una muy buena idea. Empaqué algunos productos enlatados y algo de pan y me prepararon para las comidas, lo que fue especialmente útil al salir directamente del avión. Karin proporciona huevos y condimentos, así como té, lo cual fue muy atento y me ayudó mucho. Recuerde cerrar las cortinas boscosas de la ventana grande, ya que ayuda a mantener el apartamento cálido por la noche y no gastar gas.

    Christina2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • La casa de Karin es hermosa. El piso en el que me quedé era exactamente como lo transmitían las fotos y era un lugar hermoso para llamar hogar durante mis pocos días en Dublín. Karin fue muy atenta cuando tuve un problema y fue muy agradable hablar con ella. El piso está en el corazón de la ciudad, que cuenta con la accesibilidad de todos los transportes públicos y la mayoría de las cosas a poca distancia. Me gustó mucho mi estancia.

    Curran2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • Un alojamiento excepcional en el corazón de Dublín. La oficina principal de correos y la principal calle comercial O'Connell Street se encuentran a 10 minutos a pie, Temple Bar en unos 20 minutos, o puede tomar el autobús. El Arpatement estaba muy limpio y amueblado con amor. En la cocina había todo para encontrar, lo que necesitas. Karin y Jacky son personas extremadamente acogedoras y hacen todo lo posible para que su estadía sea lo más agradable posible. Volveremos

    Thomas2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Encantador estudio con todo lo necesario para una excelente estadía en Dublín. Cocina bien equipada, gran luz, espacios cómodos. Ubicación conveniente (10 minutos a pie del río Liffey; 20 del centro de convenciones; y lejos del ajetreo y el bullicio de Temple Bar). La hospitalidad de Karin realmente hace que este lugar sea especial. ¡Las flores frescas en la entrada, los registros personales y los deliciosos productos horneados son un verdadero placer!

Esta es realmente una ubicación increíble. ¡Pudimos caminar a muchos lugares de la ciudad! ¡Y estaba muy cerca de los puntos de recogida para las excursiones de un día que partían de Dublín! ¡La cantidad de espacio que obtienes por el dinero que gastas vale la pena! Gracias Liam por todo!

KARIN'S GUIDE TO THE CITY LOCAL GROCERY SHOPPING, SERVICES AND BREAKFAST OPTIONS In general, shopping hours are 9.30-6pm, with late-night shopping till 8pm on Thursdays. Sunday opening is from noon. BREAKFAST The Kingfisher Café, a Dublin institution, on the corner of Parnell Square and Parnell Street West is great for a 'Full Irish Breakfast', and numerous variations, including porridge. Everything is cooked to order and the sraff are professional and friendly. Breakfast served 9am-12:30, 7 days a week. Later in the day they have excellent fish and chips. Koffee and Kale, on the corner of Hill Street and Gardiner Place, two blocks away has great coffee and pastries, and soup/salad/sandwiches at lunchtime. LOCAL GROCERY SHOPPING Tops in Pops, just down the street to the right, for fresh local produce and basic groceries, 8.30am to 6pm Monday to Saturday. They are a fourth-generation local business, who have been trading on the site since 1931. The Londis corner store next door opens 8am to 10pm, but charge for privilege. There is an ATM machine at the back, right hand side of the store. Dunne's Stores, is the indigenous supermarket and department store chain, and has branches in every sizeable town throughout the country. There are two local branches. In North Earl Street, opposite O’Connell Street’s Spire, the Off-Licence (liquor store) is in a separate premises, a few doors apart - look for the James Joyce statue. You will find a bigger branch in the ILAC Shopping Centre, flanked by Henry Street, Moore Street and Parnell Street West . There is Metro Tesco on Parnell Street West, just past the Rotunda Hospital. A main branch is to be found in the basement of the Jervis Centre, off Henry Street. Carney’s Butchers, is another multi-generational local family business, which prides itself on the quality of its meat. In keeping with local tradition, they sell fresh fish on Friday’s. F.X. Buckley’s Butchers have two local branches; Moore Street and Talbot Street. This is a very old Dublin business and they have everything; free-range pork, beef and lamb from their own herds, poultry, game in season and fish, and, in the Moore Street branch, a deli counter for cooked meats next door. They are very obliging, and the lads have a great line in smart (sassy) chat. PHARMACIES Foley's Pharmacy on Parnell Street East is a 100+ year-old family business; they are very helpful. Opening hours: Monday-Saturday 9am 6pm. Michael recently (May 2017) won the National 'Community Pharmacist of the Year' award, and a nicer, kinder, or more helpful man you will never meet.... There is a late-night pharmacy, Hickey’s at 55 Lower O’Connell Street, (west side, within the block closest to the river). Opening hours: 8am -10pm M-F, 8.30am-10pm Saturday. 10am 10pm Sunday. Web: (EMAIL HIDDEN) POST OFFICES Nearest Post Office is Parnell Street East, at corner of Marlborough Street, but much nicer is the GPO, O’Connell Street. 1828 façade, but badly damaged in the 1916 Rising, and largely rebuilt in 1928. The main hall is beautiful, with its entire original, 1928, fittings intact. It also contains the iconic statue, by Oliver Shepherd, The Dying Cuchullin. You will find a booklet with postal rates in the black folder. BANKS Allied Irish Bank has a branch on O’Connell Street, at the SW junction with Parnell Street, opposite the Rotunda Hospital. ATM in the wall. Bank of Ireland has a branch at Lower O’Connell Street, on the east side of the street, between Middle Abbey Street and Ashton Quay.

The dentist is happy to see people on an emergency basis. Call for appointment. Tel:(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) blocks away, going West) NORTHSIDE LOCAL RESTAURANTS: 'The Cobalt Cafe', in a beautiful Georgian house on North Great Georges Street, which doubles as a gallery, is great for lunch. Parnell Street, Dublin's emerging 'Chinatown' is just a half a block to the south. Newly opened, on Parnell Square West is 'Mr Fox', serving modern Irish food in a smart and comfortable setting, by the same team who operate Dublin's much lauded 'The Pig's Ear' on Nassau Street, overlooking the Trinity College playing fields.. '147 Cafe' at 147, Parnell Street East, opp the Marlborough Street junction, serve good Illy coffee, and great sandwiches, daytime hours. Nearer the river, 'Le Bon Crubeen' (crubeen=pig's trotter- it's a modern Franco-Irish restaurant) is on Talbot Street, as is the venerable and immensely popular 'Talbot 101'. It is packed to the gunnels with locals between 5.54 and 7.15, enjoying their pre-theatre supper before the Abbey curtains rise at 7.30, when they relinquish their seats for the rest of us! On the riverfront, I love Panem, facing the Millennium Bridge, for a quick coffee and a delicious Sicilian almond biscuit, baked on the premises. A few doors down, you'll find a cluster of Italian bars, cafes and restaurants serving good quality food. Half a block to the east is the trendy 'Winding Stairs' restaurant, with its book-lined walls (relics of a former second-hand bookshop-cum-cafe of the same name); The woollen Mills on the corner of Liffey street does great casual food, including excellent brunch. Back on Capel Street, locals rave about Brother Hubbard, and the Soup Dragon, for lunch. Blas cafe in the Chocolate Factory, on Kings Inn Street, off Parnell Street West has an interesting, casual menu, in a bright, spacious and funky former factory (daytime). LOCAL PUBS include the 'Hill 16' just opposite the house, on Gardiner Street - very popular with the GAA crowd on match days (the Gaelic Athletic Association Stadium, Croke Park, is just 3 blocks to the east), they pull a superb 'pint'. ‘The Heritage Parnell’, on Parnell Street West, just around the corner from O’Connell Street, does 'pub grub'. 'The Flowing Tide', on the corner of Marlborough Street, opposite the Abbey Theatre, is one of my favorites - after the curtain goes down in the Abbey, half the cast are likely to be at the bar. A few doors closer to O’Connell Street is Mulligan’s, another very nice pub, dating from the Edwardian era. 'The Church' on Mary Street, in a converted 1720's church, is another fine place for a drink; the former owner won many accolades for the high quality of the restoration. Capel Street has many typical local pubs, which have the added benefit of serving a largely local population. They include 'O’Neill’s' and 'Slattery's which is good for music. 'The Black Sheep' has the local craft beers covered, and does good bar food, (as does its sister pub, ‘The Brew Dock’, on Store Street, at the bottom of Gardiner Street. The north side traditional music 'musician’s' bar is 'The Cobblestone', at the top of Smithfield, and is suitably grungy. DEPARTMENT STORES AND FASHION Henry Street, off O’Connell Street, at the SPIRE, is the premier shopping street on the north side of the river. Here you will find Arnott’s the local department store, which highlights Irish fashion and design, throughout the store, and has several nice cafes. Henry Street also contains large branches of Debenhams and Marks&Spencers, as well as branches of most of the high street fashion chains. There are two large shopping centres, the Jervis, with a large branch of Tesco’s in the Basement, and the ILAC, which has a Dunne's Department Store, with a Food Hall in the basement. (You can shop for fresh produce on adjacent Moore Street, Dublin's oldest street market, now also home to a thriving cluster of ethnic food markets and restaurants.) NORTHSIDE CULTURAL ATTRACTIONS The North side of Parnell Square is home to the city's Hugh Lane Gallery of Modern Art; we share a significant collection of Impressionist painting with the Tate Gallery in London, part of the Hugh Lane Bequest, which is rotated in seven-year cycles. (The cafe, overlooking an interior garden, is called 'Hatch'; the original is in the basement of the 'Little Museum of Dublin' on St. Stevens Green). Next door is the Writer's Centre, and next door again, is the Writer's Museum, with a Michelin-starred restaurant in the basement, the amazing Chapter One. Down on the East side of Parnell Square is the beautiful jewel-box that is the Gate Theatre - part of the 18th-century entertainment complex established by the entrepreneurial Dr. Bartholomew, to help support his new Rotunda Maternity Hospital (the oldest purpose-built such hospital in the world, and still delivering babies on a daily basis, 270 years later (9000 in 2012). You could be seated in either the Abbey or Gate Theatres within 10 minutes of leaving the house, and the James Joyce Cultural Centre is even closer, on North Great Georges Street (don't forget to check out the Cobalt Cafe, opposite). Hop on the Luas Red Line, going west, in Abbey Street, halfway between Mountjoy Square and the river, and alight ‘Museum’ stop. The National Museum, Collins Barracks, housed in an old military barracks, dating from 1702, contains the Decorative Arts Collections, (basically, everything post 1700). Descend at the next stop, ‘Heuston’ for IMMA, Ireland's National Museum of Modern Art, housed in the old Kilmainham Hospital, built in the1660’s. It pre-dates its more famous sibling, the Chelsea Hospital, in London by several years. Not to be missed is the Old Jameson Distillery, in Smithfield. Jameson was distilled here until 1971, when three historic distilleries amalgamated, and centralized distilling in Midleton, Co. Cork. The Museum is very well presented; one is guided around the distilling floor, among the huge old pot stills before retiring to the Bar to sample the goods. Nearby is one of the oldest churches in Dublin, St.Michan’s, on Church Street, dating from the mid-11thC. There are several mummified bodies in the basement, thought to be Crusaders. When I was a child, one was allowed to shake their hands….. SOUTHSIDE In the south city centre, the RESTAURANT HUB is in the pedestrian streets to either side of Grafton Street, and in Temple Bar. Particular favourites of mine include: * The Pig's Ear, Nassau Street * Nede, Temple Bar Square * Eden Bar and Grill, South William Street * The Green Hen, Wicklow Street * Fallon and Byrne, Exchequer Street, basement wine-bar, full service restaurant first- floor, and coffee bar within the food-hall on the ground floor. * Fade Street Social, Fade Street, tapas bar and full-service restaurant. * The Rustic Stone, Exchequer Street, upmarket, sophisticated and healthy ‘fast food’. * Cornucopia, Wicklow Street- vegetarian café day, full service by evening. * The Port House, South William Street, wine bar and tapas. * Stanley's, St. Andrew Street, off Wicklow Street- wine bar and full service * Pinxto, Crowe Street, Temple Bar, as above, same management. * Cleaver East, Clarence Hotel - chef Oliver Dunne had a Michelin star in the parent restaurant, Bon Appetit, Malahide village, until he decided to hand it back and get a life Southside city-centre TRADITIONAL PUBS we like are: * Mulligan's, Poolbeg Street * Neary's, Chatham Street * Grogan’s, South William Street * International Bar, Wicklow Street * O'Neill's, Suffolk Street * The Dawson Lounge, Dawson Street * The Stag's Head, Connaught Court * The Long Hall, South Great Georges Street * Doheny and Nesbitt’s, Merrion Row * Kehoe’s, South Anne Street * The Duke, Duke Street Fronting the river, TEMPLE BAR, with its vibrant mix of independent shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs, markets and cultural institutions occupies an area three blocks deep and ten blocks long. At the western end, look out for the two branches of the Queen of Tarts- a wonderful tea shop that offers really good home baking and teas and coffees, all served on mismatched antique china (Lord Edward Street and Cow's Lane). Piglet Wine Bar, on the same pedestrian street had a lovely wine selection and great tapas, at good prices. TEMPLE BAR FARMERS MARKET, is held every Saturday in Meeting House Square, 9-4.30, now has a smart new tensile roof for wet days, and is a good place to rub shoulders with the locals, whilst sampling local food culture. Don’t miss the Oyster Stall, , or David Llewyllan’s fantastic ‘Double L’ local cider- 100% apple (not even water), and the two local cheese stalls, among others. Don’t’ forget to check out the overflow stalls on Curved Street, where Rossa Crowe’s fantastic bread is on offer- Rossa took himself off to France for two years to train, and now produces slow fermented breads, made with the very best organic flours. SOUTHSIDE CULTURAL ATTRACTIONS TRINITY COLLEGE is a good orientation point; from here it is easy to find the mediaeval core, the cultural/political hub of the country around Kildare Street, and the Grafton Street fashion hub. The campus occupies a 40-acre (16ha.) site, and is over 400 years old, though what one sees today are mainly beautiful eighteenth-century buildings. It is worth a wander around, after a visit to spectacular Long Library, to see the Book of Kells and other illustrated Celtic manuscripts. From Front Gate, look south to Grafton Street or west up College Green and Dame Street, which lead to the mediaeval core. At the brow of the hill you will find: * Dublin Castle (visit the State Apartments, the Chester Beatty Library and the lovely garden in front (which is actually the helicopter-landing pad for the Castle). * The City Hall with its 'Museum of the Capital' in the basement is worth a look- the Hall is free, and there is a nominal charge for the Museum. * Christchurch Cathedral * Dublinia-in the Christchurch Chapterhouse (Viking Exhibition). * Old Saint Audeon's Church, built almost into the city wall. * St Patrick's Cathedral, and historic park beside. * Marshe's Library-the oldest public library in these islands, 1701. * Francis Street- the Antiques Quarter. * Thomas Street/Meath Street, for a touch of 'Old Dublin'. * The Guinness Storehouse. * Royal Hospital, Kilmainham, (IMMA) Ireland's National Gallery of Modern Art, with its wonderful, recently restored formal garden. KILMINHAM GAOL is worth a visit, and tells the story of Irish Nationalism. It can be reached via the grounds of IMMA, passing Bully’s Acre, and old graveyard, where Brian Boru was reputedly rested on his way to his final burial place in Armagh. Alternatively, exit onto Nassau Street, with its cluster of high-quality shops showcasing the best of Irish crafts - fashion, knitwear, weaving, glassware, ceramics and contemporary jewellery - the Kilkenny Shop has a great cafe upstairs, with views over College Park. The Pig's Ear restaurant is one of my all-time favourites. Continue along the College Park railings till you reach Kildare Street, the cultural-institutional hub of the country. All of our national cultural institutions have free admission. Here you will find the National Library, and the National Museum, facing each other over the forecourt of Leinster House, home to the Oireachtas, our National Parliament. The National Library has a lovely exhibit on the poet, W.B. Yeats, and the Treasury, in the National Museum houses both the Bronze Age and Early Christian collections. On the opposite side of the block, on Merrion Street/Merrion Square, you will find the National Gallery, and the Natural History Museum (known to Dubliner's of my father's generation, as 'The Dead Zoo’. This is a very refreshing look to the past, with absolutely no interpretation, and nothing, not even a postcard, to buy). The National Gallery is almost through a four-year renovation programme; in the meantime, the Millennium Wing, on Clare Street, has a ‘highlights of’ exhibition, and the Café and Gift Shop are also accessed via the Clare Street Entrance. GETTING AROUND Two operators offer Hop-On/Hop-Off tours: (URL HIDDEN) (URL HIDDEN) They both offer a 2-day ticket, and cost roughly the same price - check them out online before you make up your mind. One can buy an integrated LEAP card in most newsagents, at train stations, and in the Dublin Bus Head Office at 42 O’Connell Street (on the west side of the street, just north of the Spire). This can be used on the LUAS, DART, some suburban mainline trains, and on Dublin Bus routes. There is also a 3-day tourist pass, the Freedom Ticket, which provides good value. €28 will give you 72 hours transport, starting at the Airport; Airlink from the airport, the Hop-On-Hop –Off tourist bus and all local bus routes. Web: (URL HIDDEN) •The DART, the local electric commuter train, runs north/south along the coast. The north-side city centre station is Connolly, on Amiens Street, facing Talbot Street, but I usually suggest people use Tara Street, as Connolly is also a mainline station, and is very big, and a bit confusing. Tara is purely a commuter station, and is about the same distance. It is on George’s Quay, just south of the Custom House. The other south-side city centre station is Pearse, on Westland Row, at the south end of the Trinity campus. •The LUAS Red Line runs east-west through the north side of the city, as far east as the docks, and serves both Connolly and Heuston mainline stations. The nearest stop to Mountjoy Square is Abbey, on Middle Abbey Street, opposite the Abbey Theatre. The LUAS Green Line serves the south suburbs; Ranelagh, Dundrum, Leopardstown Racecourse, and on out to Cherrywood, on the county boundary with Wicklow. •Main cross-city bus routes run north-south through O’Connell Street. The No.7 terminates on Mountjoy Square North, and there is a ‘shopper’s fare’ of 50c, to Grafton Street- alight at Trinity. On the return journey it skirts the Trinity campus and comes along Pearse, to the east of the campus - catch it on Clare Street, at the Millennium wing of the National Gallery. •DUBLIN BIKES are free to use for the first half hour, and have a stand on Mountjoy Square West, but one needs to go to the Princes Street stand (to the right hand side of the General Post Office (GPO)), to purchase a short term card. It costs €2, and is only available to credit card holders. SHOPPING WITH A DIFFERENCE Those interested in the local fashion, art and design scene should look out for the following addresses (in no particular order): •Designist, South Great George's Street (stock chosen for good design) •Irish Design Store, Drury Street •Article, Powerscourt Townhouse Centre (housewares) •Irish Designer Store, Top floor Powerscourt Townhouse Centre •Cow's Lane Gallery, Temple Bar (artist’s collective) •The Jam Factory, Nicholas Street (artist’s collective) •Avoca, Suffolk Street •Kilkenny Shop, Nassau Street •Designyard, South Frederick Street (jewellery) •Louise Kennedy, couturier, Merrion Square, and Tipperary Crystal •Gallery Zozimus, Francis Street (art gallery and carefully chosen crafts) •Graphic Studio Gallery, Temple Bar (artist-printmaker’s gallery) •Malthouse Design Centre and Shop, Distillery Court, 537 North Circular •Magee's of Donegal, Wicklow Street, and, •Kevin and Howlin, Nassau Street have hand-woven tweeds covered. •Dubarry's, College Green produce wonderful, country-style outerwear, including the most perfect alternative to sweaty, waterproof Wellington boots… •Monaghan's, Hibernian Way, the House of Ireland on Nassau Street and the Sweater Shops on Wicklow Street and Nassau Street has the best selections of traditional knitwear. Monaghan's specialise in cashmere. •The Cloth Shop, St. William Street, for interesting designer fabric, including a good selection of Irish Linen, and Liberty of London INDEPENDENT BOOKSHOPS and MUSIC STORES Eason’s, O’Connell Street, is a Dublin institution for over 100 years. It encompasses a large stationery department, a branch of Tower Records on the top floor, academic books in the basement, a nice café and two floors of general books. It is a good place to browse books of Irish interest, and they have a really good Information Desk. Chapters, Parnell Street West is my ‘local’. John Gannon is one of the best booksellers in the business, and his staff are hand-picked enthusiastic bibliophiles, one and all. Stock is a mixture of the latest releases, and carefully chosen remaindered books. Their ordering service is superlative, and they ALWAYS know exactly what one is talking about, even with just the vaguest, half-remembered clues from a newspaper review. Very strong on contemporary fiction, natural history, non-fiction and books of Irish interest. Extensive second-hand section upstairs. The Secret Bookstore, Wicklow Street is another favourite. It’s tucked away down a passage, near the L’Occitane shop and often throws up gems among its large second-hand stock. An eclectic music store occupies the rear of the shop. Cathach Rare Books, Duke Street, specializes in Irish first editions, and have an interesting selection of Irish maps and prints. Stokes Books is another interesting antiquarian/secondhand shop, specializing in books of Irish interest. You’ll find it in Georges Street Arcade. Claddagh Records, Cecelia Street, Temple Bar, is primarily a music publisher, but they have a retail outlet in Temple Bar, which is the oldest independent music shop in Dublin, and specializes in traditional Irish music, with some interesting World Music additions. PLACES OF WORSHIP: Roman Catholic: Many Catholic churches have Mass on Saturday evening, in addition to morning Masses. •St. Francis Xavier Roman Catholic Church, Upper Gardiner Street. Gospel Mass, 7.30pm Sundays, September to mid June. •St. Mary's Metropolitan Church - the Pro-Cathedral, Marlborough. Sung Mass, 11am, Sundays, with the Palestrina Choir. •St. Joseph’s Church, Berkeley Road, Dublin 7. •St. Teresa’s Church, Clarendon Street Church, choir sings at 11 o’clock Mass, Sunday’s •St. Peter’s Church, Phibsborough, Dublin 7, has wonderful Harry Clarke ((PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)) stained glass windows. •Whitefriars Street Church, Aungier Street, church has relics of St. Valentine.

Tel: +(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) Anwar-up-Madina Moore Street, Dublin 1. SHORT TRIPS OUTSIDE THE CITY BY PUBLIC TRANSPORT NORTH: Catch the No.46A bus, (heading north on O'Connell Street to the Phoenix Park- the largest enclosed urban park in the world, 1750 acres behind a seven-mile-long stone wall. Ashtown Castle Interpretive Centre, with its wonderful walled garden and café is a good place to orient oneself. From here, on Saturdays, it is possible to visit Aras an Uachtarian, the official residence of our President. One can also visit Farmliegh, the Official State Guesthouse, a former Guinness mansion. Among it’s attractions are an art gallery, café, occasional free concerts, and regular weekend Farmer’s Markets. The Park also houses the Dublin Zoo, (1827, the second-oldest Zoo in the world, after London’s Regent Park Zoo). Several herd of Fallow Deer roam at liberty. Many sports are catered for; there is Polo ground, a cricket club, and lots soccer pitches. The Duke of Wellington is commemorated by a marvellous Sobelisk, and the Forty Acres affords superb views over the city, with the Royal Hospital and Guinness Brewery in the foreground, along the south side of the River Liffey. Phoenix Park can also be reached via the LUAS Red Line, direction Tallagh, heading west. Alight at 'Museum' and take a detour into the National Museum-Collins Barracks, which houses the Decorative Arts, post-1700, wonderful collections of silver, furniture, glass and other artifacts. Just up the road, in Glasnevin, there are three worthwhile attractions: Glasnevin Cemetary, was founded by Daniel O’Connell as one of his first initiatives, post Catholic Emancipation in 1829, to provide a dignified place for Catholic burial. The Glasnevin Museum is new, and has superlative displays of Nationalist history. They also have a very good Geneology Department. The National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin, date from the end of 18thC. Though relatively small, they contain an internationally-aclaimed collection of plants and three iconic Glasshouses, by Turner of Dublin, which have all been restored in the recent past. There is a nice café in the Gardens, and entry is free. The Gravedigger’s Pub, over-looking a Green, is not to be missed. It acquired its name from the fact that there used to be a hatch in the rear wall, through which the gravediggers were served. They do nice simple pub food, and one can sit outside on sunny days. Walk back into town, and stop at either the The Botanic Bar at Harte’s Corner or the Brian Boru, typicl local bars. The Whitworth, at Cross Guns Bridge, with nice food, is on the corner of the Royal Canal. Take a stroll east down the canal bank, and you will see swans, and moor-hens going about their business. At the next bridge, at Dorset Street, look out for the lifesize bronze statue of Brendan Behan, a local author. From here is just a few minute’s stroll up Belvidere Place, with its charming stepped terraces of tall Georgian houses, to Mountjoy Square. Another favourite is the Marino Casino, in Fairview/Clontarf, an early 18th century pleasure house, built to the design of Sir William Chambers, for Lord Charlemont, purely for entertaining, also just a few miles by bus, north of the city centre. Catch the DART, the coastal commuter train, heading north, at Tara Street Station, on the South Liffey quays, at Butt Bridge, and take a short ride. You have the choice of Howth (a working fishing village) or Malahide. Howth Demesne or Howth Head, behind the village will both afford walks with great views; the Harbour has a dozen restaurants along the quay- ranging from take-out fish and chips to the very upmarket. Book an early-evening window table at Aqua, and be astonished by the sunset over the coast, looking north-west. Another favourite of mine is Deep, midway along the quay (and do watch out for the local tame and greedy Harbour Seal, who begs shamelessly from the trawler men, who tie up alongside). Malahide is a charming village, with some of the most expensive urban residential properties in the country. Good food and good shopping are to be had here. On the edge of the village you will find Malahide Castle and Demesne, open to the public, which includes a renowned private Arboretum, as Milo de Malahide, the last of his family, (who had occupied the castle continuously since Norman times, in the 10th-12th centuries) was a significant plants-man. The Castle contains the National Portrait Collection, as was as magnificent furniture and other contents. There is a smart new branch of the AVOCA Shop and Café in the Courtyard. Oliver Dunne's restaurant, Bon Appetit, on St. James Terrace, has superb food in elegant, relaxed surroundings.(This restaurant had a Michelin star for years, but the chef/patron decided to return it, and simplify his life - a case of 'been there-done that'.) SOUTH: South of the city you will find Rathfarnham Castle, and its Berkeley Costume and Toy Collection (No. 16 bus). Marley Park is a little further, just at the foot of the Dublin Mountains. It has wonderful parkland with easy walks, and a magnificent walled garden with a nice cafe. The No.16 bus, from O’Connell Street will leave you close by. Powerscourt is at the edge of Enniskerry, its associated estate village, at the end of the No.44 bus route, which winds its way through the south side suburbs, into Wicklow, through the Scalp, a deep and picturesque glacial valley. The 19th century gardens are fabulous, and make great use of the 'borrowed landscape' beyond. The terrace and Nepture fountain are centred on the Sugarloaf mountain, which marks the beginning of the Wicklow Mountains. The Powerscourt Waterfall, part of the same estate, is a few miles further on, and there are beautiful, way-marked, woodland and moorland walks in the hills nearby. Do be mindful; these ‘mountains’ can be deceptive- while not high, they can be treacherous, as weather conditions can change in minutes. Stick to the way-marked paths, and do keep an eye on the weather. Take the DART south to Bray and Greystones - via Dun Loughaire, Dalkey and Killiney - all interesting villages, with many cafes and restaurants. Killiney Hill, with its eighteenth century obelisk at the summit, is a short climb that results in amazing views over Dublin Bay, and down into the Wicklow Mountains beyond. There is a nice pub in in the ‘village’- ‘The Druid’s Chair’. Dalkey is a charming village with old-fashioned shops and lots of nice pubs, cafes and restaurants. The local Dalkey Castle Heritage Centre, is worth checking out, and in the summer run a theatre programme, and walking tours. Bray Esplanade is a classic Victorian seaside amenity, sturdily built from local granite - the perfect place to enjoy an ice-cream. Campo di Fiori, either the Restaurant or the Café, both near the train station and the north end of the Promenade, are particular favourites of mine. If one is feeling energetic, one could contemplate the Cliff Walk from Bray to Greystones - 4miles/6km along the rough cliff path. Lots of nice pubs for a pint of Guinness at the other end, The Hungry Pear is my favourite café, among many. The DART will take you straight back into the city. But.. make sure to do it in the morning, as by mid-day the path is in shade, and it can be windy and cold. WEST: Travelling into the rich plains of Kildare, by the No. 67 bus route, you will come to the historic village of Celbridge, just twelve miles from the city centre. Castletown House is Ireland's finest Palladian mansion, and was saved from destruction by Desmond Guinness, in the early 1960's. He purchased it from the construction company who had acquired it. They intended to demolish it, to make way for a vast suburban housing estate. The Irish Georgian Society, founded by Desmond Guinness, restored the house and furnished it with the help of many volunteers and sponsors, and opened it to the public, a heroic task for a small membership conservation society. Today, it is in State ownership, and it is the flagship Georgian heritage property of Ireland. It is beautifully presented, and the parklands are undergoing restoration. A local bus, or the commuter train from Connolly Station in Amiens Street, will take one to Maynooth, a charming University town, with another magnificent Palladian mansion, Carton House, now operating as a very upmarket hotel and golf club. Lots of companies offer day-long coach tours. Some involve very long days, i.e, Cliffs of Moher in Clare and the Giant’s Causeway on the Antrim coast. Two more local, and very worthwhile ones are either: The Boyne Valley Tour (Newgrange Neolithic ( 5000 yr old World Heritage Site) / Mellifont Cistercian ruins- (12thC.)/ Monasterboice Early Christian (6th-8thC.) The Wicklow-Glendalough Tour (Powerscourt / Wicklow Mountains National Park and Glendalough (Glen of the Two Lakes) a 6thC. Early Christian site, in beautiful wooded valley. Details of both of these trips, and others, are available in the big black folder in the apartment.
    A beautiful, historic residential square, built in 1790's, within 5-10 minutes walk of the city centre. Elegance and convenience combined with a bit of inner city grittiness. I have loved it all, since 1978!
  • ¡El lugar de Karin fue absolutamente fenomenal! Mi esposo y yo nos alojamos aquí mientras viajábamos por Irlanda, y nos encantó. Tenía todo lo que necesitábamos para cocinar, y un mercado en la calle para comprar comestibles. ¡Karin es uno de los mejores anfitriones con los que hemos interactuado!

    Taylor2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • Todo fue absolutamente perfecto, ¡muchas gracias!

    Mathilde2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Este lugar es la perfección absoluta! Es impresionante, acogedor, limpio cerca del centro y Karin es el anfitrión perfecto.

    Katy2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Un gran espacio Muy recomendable.

    Jake2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • He tenido una maravillosa estancia en el estudio georgiano de Karin. La comunicación de derecha fue genial, con consejos prácticos y explicaciones. La bienvenida fue cálida y Karin se tomó el tiempo, fue muy amable. Había un montón de golosinas extra en la nevera y me sentí muy bienvenido. A la salida, mi vuelo se fue horas después de la salida: no hay problema, Karin me dejó poner mi equipaje en el pasillo, para que pudiera ir a ver (fui a la hermosa Howth). Muy recomendable !!!

    Monique2019-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • El lugar era genial. Todo el espacio que necesitábamos, cafetera y adaptadores para ayudar a mantener cargados nuestros productos electrónicos. Está en una calle concurrida, por lo que hay ruido de tráfico después de una hora determinada. Aún así, encontró todo lo demás mejor de lo esperado.

    Mark2019-06-19T00:00:00Z
  • Seleccioné la opción "mejor de lo que esperábamos" al revisar el departamento de Karin. Sin embargo, siento que da la impresión de que no esperábamos mucho del departamento cuando en realidad esperábamos un alto nivel dadas las críticas positivas y Karin logró superar estas altas expectativas, ¡para nuestro deleite! Apreciamos enormemente la provisión de jugo de frutas y huevos, etc. Fue una adición tan reflexiva que brindó relajación instantánea después de una ajetreada mañana de viaje (y llenó nuestros vientres hambrientos). Karin incluso proporcionó algunos artículos de aseo, que era otro toque encantador. Karin fue increíblemente flexible con nuestros planes de viaje y estuvo feliz de guardar nuestras maletas para nosotros antes del check-in y después del check-out, lo que significaba que realmente podíamos ver la mayor parte de Dublín. Estaríamos encantados de quedarnos con Karin nuevamente si surge la oportunidad, no puedo cantar las alabanzas de Karin lo suficiente.

    Chloe2019-06-16T00:00:00Z
  • El apartamento es realmente hermoso y es una experiencia única. El lugar es extremadamente limpio y la ubicación cerca del centro. Todo está bien pensado. Incluso si está en una calle ruidosa, realmente vale la pena.

La piscina y la sauna en la casa eran fabulosas y los niños realmente les encantó! ¡También nos encantaron los paseos por el parque en la puerta! Gran estancia Excelente ubicación y excelente anfitrión.

    Orla2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Sarah y su esposo fueron unos anfitriones excelentes. Tienen una hermosa casa a las afueras del parque.

    Garrett2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Mi familia tuvo una gran estancia de 2 noches en esta encantadora casa. La piscina fue sin duda lo más destacado del viaje. Disfrutamos mucho de nuestra estancia y la hospitalidad de Sarah, como nuestro anfitrión.

    Louise2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Sarah fue una excelente anfitriona y muy receptiva. El lugar es increíble como son las instalaciones. Tenga en cuenta que esto se encuentra en un área de reserva y está cerca de la casa principal, por lo que el ruido debe mantenerse bajo. En general nuestra estancia fue excelente

    Sam2019-11-29T00:00:00Z
  • ¡¿Dónde empiezo?! La casa es HERMOSA y en una excelente ubicación. Pero Sarah es una de las personas más amables que hemos conocido. Ella hizo nuestra primera visita a Irlanda inolvidable. Nuestra mamá irlandesa

    Brooke2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Una noche fabulosa, ubicación, espacio y servicios fueron perfectos para nuestro fin de semana y los anfitriones fueron muy acogedores. Es fácilmente accesible desde las carreteras principales y el aeropuerto y un corto viaje al centro de la ciudad. Ya estamos planeando reservar para el próximo año! Gracias de nuevo por una estancia encantadora.

    Aisling2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • No puedo hablar lo suficiente sobre Sarah y su hermosa casa. Nuestro tiempo de aterrizaje del vuelo estaba fuera del horario de check-in, y ella nos recibió con té y conversación. Las habitaciones son muy cómodas. Tan tonto como parece, la presión del agua fue notable. Nos alojamos en muchos hoteles y BnB en el transcurso de nuestros viajes de luna de miel, y la presión del agua aquí fue fenomenal en comparación. El espacio es absolutamente precioso también. Absolutamente volveremos. Sarah es, con mucho, la mejor anfitriona que hemos tenido, y es una persona realmente maravillosa.

    Cassandra2019-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • Sarah es una anfitriona sobresaliente, que ofrece recoger comestibles y proporcionar un transporte ocasional a Castleknock Village. ¡Ella y su familia eran las guías perfectas para hacer y ver cosas en Dublín!

    Fantastic Apartment in the heart of the city with river views. Refurbished by award winning A2 architects, this unique space offers modern, bright open plan accommodation with amazing views of the Ha'penny Bridge, one of Dublin most famous landmarks.
    Fantastic Apartment in the heart of the city with river views. Refurbished by award winning A2 architects, this unique space offers modern, bright open plan accommodation with amazing views of the Ha'penny Bridge, one of Dublin most famous landmarks. Recently renovated by award winning A2 Architects, my 2nd floor, open plan studio apartment offers the perfect location to stay in Dublin. Situated right beside the symbol of Dublin, the Ha’penny Bridge, you are in the beating heart of the city. Everything is within walking distance, with Temple Bar and Trinity College for example just across the bridge and most other major sights a few minutes away . The airport bus is only 100 metres away, not to mention all the bars and restaurants just outside the door. Experiencing the true essence of Dublin couldn’t be any easier. Previously a 66-metres (710 sq ft) two-bedroom apartment, it was renovated to an open plan, creating a large space that allows full access to natural light. From the window overlooking the river Liffey, you get a great view of the sunset and the feeling of the city passing you by. It’s deceptively easy to just sit at the window and watch as people cross the Ha’penny bridge. I have Wi-fi, a great bathroom and fully functioning kitchen including a Nespresso coffee machine. Dublin is a conveniently compact city and my apartment is nestled right in the centre of it all, allowing for a hassle free, thoroughly enjoyable place to experience it to the full. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Location cannot be better. You are overlooking the River Liffey and directly above the beautiful Ha'penny Bridge. Cross the bridge and you are in Temple Bar with its numerous bars, restaurants, vintage clothes shops, Project Arts Centre, Gallery of Photography, Irish Film Institute and many other attractions. Dublin two main pedestrian shopping streets, Grafton and Henry St are about 5 minutes away. Trinity College with its famous Library is 3 minutes walk. The Aircoach bus from the airport drops you 5 minutes away. The LUAS tram stops in Jervis St 2 minutes away but the apartment is so central you probably won't be using public transport at all. I personally wouldn't recommend car hire as a lot of the streets are one way and it can be tricky to drive around if you are not familiar with the city. Notes: -The sofa bed in the pictures is BoConcept Melo 6070 Double Sofa with reclining and sleeping function. Size as double bed is 173cm wide x 197cm long so suitable for one or two people but not as comfortable as a bed. -The Bed is King Size (150 x 200cm) and has a memory foam mattress

Dublin two main pedestrian shopping streets, Grafton and Henry St are about 5 minutes away. Trinity College with its famous Library is 3 minutes walk. Dublin is experiencing a Renaissance after a long recession and every week a new exciting restaurant, cultural space or play is opening. It is a great time to be visiting!
  • Dardo es un súper anfitrión.

    Nok-Phanchita2020-04-04T00:00:00Z
  • Estudio encantador y elegante con una gran vista de Liffey

    Peter2020-03-24T00:00:00Z
  • ¡El lugar de Dardo es fantástico! Grandes ventanales que dan al río Liffey y al puente Ha'penny. Está en la ubicación central perfecta, a poca distancia de todo lo que quieres hacer en Dublín. Hay mucha vida nocturna en Temple Bar y si eres del tipo que se acuesta temprano, trae tapones para los oídos.

  • El loft limpio y elegante de Dardo fue el lugar perfecto para ubicarnos en Dublín para nuestras aventuras en la ciudad y cerca de las paradas de autobús para nuestras increíbles excursiones de un día. Estás realmente en el corazón del centro de la ciudad. Dicho esto, obtienes ruido de la ciudad, especialmente los viernes y sábados, así que si eso te molesta, ¡los tapones para los oídos funcionaron bien! Había numerosos pubs, restaurantes, tiendas y otros servicios muy cerca. Dardo fue un gran anfitrión y fue muy receptivo a nuestras preguntas y fue rápido con nuestra recogida de llaves. No podría pedir un mejor anfitrión y apreciamos sus recomendaciones. Gracias de nuevo Dardo por permitirnos usar tu espacio. ¡Ya queremos planear un viaje de regreso!

    Kelli2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Dardo se comunicó muy bien en todo momento y fue muy servicial con nosotros. Aterrizamos en Dublín bastante temprano y pudimos dejar nuestras maletas de inmediato, lo que nos dio tiempo para explorar. El apartamento está en una ubicación perfecta y está muy limpio y ordenado. Nos sentimos realmente seguros, así como el acceso y la seguridad del edificio fue muy bueno. El apartamento era muy espacioso y nos sentimos muy cómodos allí.

    Simon2020-02-19T00:00:00Z

Liam fue más allá con un mapa que muestra bares / cafeterías / tiendas locales a poca distancia del piso. Había cuatro de nosotros alojados entre la cama doble y el sofá cama; ambos hicieron el trabajo, pero creo que sería mucho más cómodo para dos personas que para cuatro, ya que la segunda noche podía sentir los muelles en el sofá cama. En general, es un excelente apartamento y ubicación que volveremos a usar.

  • ¡Piso moderno y animado! ¡En la ubicación perfecta! Perfecto para los pocos días que estuvimos! Fácil acceso y Liam fue un gran anfitrión!

    Ross2019-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • El apartamento se siente como en casa, es acogedor y tiene todo lo que necesitábamos para nuestra estadía. Super cerca de todo. Jameson está básicamente en su patio trasero (2-3 minutos a pie si es así). Cafeterías fuera de su puerta. ¡Puedes caminar a todos lados y estar allí en 15 minutos! Liam fue extremadamente receptivo, el proceso de registro fue muy fácil y te brinda increíbles consejos locales. Una estadía increíble!

  • El lugar de Liam estaba en una excelente ubicación para nuestras necesidades. Estaba a poca distancia de todas las cosas que queríamos hacer en Dublín y al lado de una parada en la línea de tranvía cuando lo necesitábamos. El apartamento estaba bien equipado para cocinar nuestras comidas, lo cual era importante ya que estuvimos allí durante cuatro semanas. La tienda fresca cercana era ideal para comprar víveres. El apartamento estaba limpio y bien amueblado y era un espacio cómodo para relajarse. Nos alegramos de conocer a Liam, que fue amable y servicial. En general, tuvimos una gran estancia. Esperamos alquilar este espacio nuevamente en nuestro próximo viaje a Dublín.

We have both enjoyed decorating the space with as many handcrafted, reclaimed and up-cycled items as possible. As you enter The Hide you will find a wood burning stove in the centre of the cabin, alcove double bed with curtains and blinds to the right and a small bathroom behind the bed. A couch against the centre back wall allows guests to avail of the fire and the tranquil views through the double doors onto the deck. To the left is the kitchen area with a four ring electric hob, combined oven, grill and microwave and fridge with freezer compartment. Guests have access to a washing machine and dryer in a nearby outbuilding. The space is heated by the wood-burning stove with fuel provided.

    We are centrally located in a beautiful part of Donegal, close to most of its attractions. The cabin is nestled in a valley 3 km from the scenic village of Fintown.

  • Durante la pandemia que es Covid19, Pete y Anna nos recibieron cuando otros no lo hicieron. Tener dos días para desconectarse, relajarse y disfrutar de lo que el Condado de Donegal tiene para ofrecer fue espectacular. ¡El espacio era todo lo anunciado y más! Cuando el mundo sane, ¡volveremos!

    Sarah2020-03-18T00:00:00Z

    Hazel2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • El alojamiento fue realmente agradable. Hay una pequeña playa justo en frente de la puerta principal y en el pueblo de al lado puedes comer muy bien por la noche. El alojamiento en sí era mejor de lo esperado y volveríamos a registrarnos en cualquier momento.

    David2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Fantástica ubicación cerca de Largy y Killybegs. A solo 2 minutos a pie de la playa. Muchas áreas para explorar en el área y Tom y Sylvia proporcionaron mucha información local sobre dónde nos gustaría visitar. La cabaña tenía todo lo que pudimos haber necesitado para nuestra estancia y los detalles adicionales añadidos, incluyendo zapatillas, etc. fueron geniales! La cabaña estaba impecablemente limpia y bien cuidada. Esperemos volver a quedarme en el futuro.

    Lesley2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Brillantemente limpio, tiene todo lo que necesitará para una estadía prolongada, la playa a solo 5 minutos a pie, el registro de entrada / salida muy fácil volverá nuevamente

    Simon2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • La cabaña Beachcombers es moderna, elegante pero también muy acogedora. Pasamos unos días estupendos aquí y vimos la puesta de sol sobre la playa de Fintra. Lo recomendaría encarecidamente para una escapada romántica.

    Nathan2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • El lugar de Tom es muy limpio y cómodo. Estuvimos 2 días adicionales porque es una base ideal para recorrer el área general. caminar por la playa cercana en una tormenta atlántica fue lo más destacado.

    David2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • La casa de Tom y Sylvias era perfecta, justo lo que yo y mi esposo estábamos buscando después de la locura de Navidad. ¡Fue la base perfecta para explorar el impresionante paisaje y aún mejor en las noches y noches frías e invernales para encender el fuego, ponerse cómodo y relajarse! Una gran luna llena, un hermoso amanecer y un rápido baño en la playa de Fintra completaron nuestra estadía perfectamente. Un millón de gracias

    Sarah2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Si desea vistas fantásticas, un alojamiento hermoso y comodidades perfectas, aquí es donde debe alojarse. Este refugio es espacioso y único, a tiro de piedra de una playa apartada y perfecto si desea explorar lo que la salvaje ruta del Atlántico tiene para ofrecer. Aunque visitamos en la cima y la tranquilidad fue la perfección. Podemos imaginar muchos maravillosos días de verano deambulando por la playa y sentados en la terraza mirando la puesta de sol. Gracias a Tom y Sylvia por las recomendaciones y los toques adicionales. Nuestro primer viaje a Donegal no podría haber sido tan perfecto sin su ayuda y cabaña.

    Position, Position, Position. The best spot for sight-seeing, cafes, shopping & the night life of Dublin! You are literally at the Spire on O'Connell St. The bedsit is the perfect base from which to explore Dublin. Featuring keyless, digital entry, 24/7 check in, the apartment has all you need. Including a double bed, instantaneous shower, plus microwave, toaster & kettle. It's on the second floor, Cable TV & fast wifi. Great position and very experienced company run by super hosts!
    For light to early sleepers: Due to it's central location, there can be some street noise, so bringing some ear plugs may be advisable. Paper towels are not provided - this is a choice for the environment and the future. We do not supply face cloths, sorry - our linen company does not stock them. Recently renovated, with a small bathroom but the benefits of an instant shower, and kitchenette including kettle, toaster, microwave, fridge, plates, utensils, cutlery etc. Like all of our apartments, this has all a traveler needs to 'live like a local', in style, and see the sights, without having to take public transport everywhere, or to hire a car. Like your own hotel room! Shower might not suit very tall people.......
    The neighbourhood is vibrant and lively and has some fantastic restaurants near by. The area has recently included the Luas tram line which is only steps away from the accommodation. Please check our recommendations in the home manual!

    The Cow Shed is a cosy, rustic converted byre situated on our property in a very tranquil scenic area. The view from the cottage looks towards the beautiful Glendowan mountains and Glenveagh National Park. Ideal for a peaceful retreat or a great base to explore
    The cottage consists of an open plan living, dining and kitchenette area with a double sleeping mezzanine above. There is a small bathroom with an electric shower. The kitchenette contains an electric hob, a small combination convection oven, microwave and grill and a small fridge. Guests have access to a washing machine in an adjacent outbuilding. The space is heated by a wood-burning stove with fuel provided. The guest cottage has a private garden, seating area and barbeque to the rear. As the byre was originally part of a small farm, our own traditional cottage sits on the same site. If The Cow Shed is unavailable for the dates you are interested in, please check out our other listings. The Hide is a cosy, handcrafted cabin nestled on a slope at the opposite end of our house from the cottage. The Birdbox is our little handcrafted treehouse nestled in mature trees behind The Cow Shed.

  • Nos encantó, nos encantó, nos encantó nuestra estancia aquí. Tan tranquilo y acogedor en esta cabaña, incluso si el clima es malo, no te importa sentarte adentro con una hermosa vista y un libro junto al fuego. Gran lugar para desconectarse del mundo por un momento. No puedo recomendarlo lo suficiente!

    Isabelle2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Un espacio increíble en un paisaje impresionante. Aléjese de todo sin señal de teléfono que solo necesitábamos. ¡El espacio es increíble con todo lo que puedas necesitar y las listas de reproducción de Spotify son increíbles!

    Nathan2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Otro excelente ejemplo (pero tristemente raro) de exactamente de qué debería tratarse Airbnb. Un lugar único y lleno de personalidad para hospedarse con anfitriones reales y entusiastas que sienten una pasión genuina por su comunidad local y la comparten con sus invitados. El proceso de reserva fue tan fácil. Todo sobre la cabaña se describió con precisión y Pete y Anna proporcionaron instrucciones claras y detalladas, por lo que encontrar la granja fue muy fácil. Anna proporcionó una cara amigable en el check in y nos dio un resumen de todas las características del byre y algunos consejos para aprovechar al máximo el área. Incluso habían puesto en marcha la estufa de leña en preparación para nuestra llegada, por lo que era acogedora más allá de lo imaginable. Conocimos a Pete más tarde y tuvimos algunas buenas conversaciones durante nuestra estancia. Obviamente, son una pareja comprometida con su comunidad y el medio ambiente y aseguran que sus huéspedes tengan la mejor estadía posible. Eran unos anfitriones perfectos. La pequeña cabaña en sí superó nuestras expectativas. Sí, es rústico, pero estaba impecablemente limpio y se proporciona todo lo que necesita (a menos que necesite televisión o acceso constante a Internet). Muy espaciosa y, sin embargo, increíblemente acogedora, la pequeña estufa de leña (proporcionan grandes encendedores, leña y troncos) mantuvo el espacio caliente en las noches frías, secó nuestra ropa húmeda y fue divertido cocinar a pesar de tener una buena placa eléctrica en La cocina. La cocina está más que adecuadamente equipada para autoservicio y estaba equipada con una buena variedad de condimentos básicos, especias, etc., lo cual fue una buena ventaja. Muy cómoda cama tipo loft, así que tenía algunos excelentes durmientes tranquilos. Un montón de toques reflexivos en todo ... juegos, libros para leer, CD para escuchar y DVD para ver (si tiene una computadora portátil y la vista cansada o viendo cómo se queman y crujen los registros). La ubicación de la granja de Pete y Anna es increíble y perfecta para cualquiera que quiera escapar / desconectarse. En una ladera remota y tranquila con vistas al valle y un lago a las montañas del Parque Nacional, vimos ciervos y zorros cada mañana en el campo de abajo. A poca distancia en auto de Fintown y Doochary (que tienen una pequeña tienda local) y un pintoresco viaje en automóvil de 15 minutos de Dungloe para un poco más de acción: cafeterías, pubs, etc. y algunos supermercados (SuperValu tiene una sección de panadería fresca y decente: pan de trigo y bollos estaban deliciosos). El Parque Nacional Glenveagh y la costa, tanto al norte como al sur, son espectaculares y están a mano si tiene vehículo, por lo que la cabaña es una base ideal para cualquiera que desee explorar Donegal (asegúrese de obtener algunos consejos locales de Anna y Pete). Pero el byre también es el lugar perfecto para descansar y relajarse si simplemente no desea hacer nada o si no tiene un automóvil. Definitivamente me quedaría aquí de nuevo, o tal vez incluso probar su nueva casa del árbol la próxima vez.

    Angus2019-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • ¡Guauu! Pete y Anna excedieron nuestras expectativas con The Cow Shed. Fue genial estar desconectado en un espacio tan increíble con el telón de fondo más hermoso. Recomendaría este lugar a cualquiera que quiera experimentar verdaderamente Irlanda y la serenidad que tiene para ofrecer (bono: los anfitriones más amables de Airbnb). Estamos ansiosos por volver y ver los otros espacios de Pete y Anna.

    Demi2019-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • Tuvimos un viaje fantástico en casa de Pete y Anna. Desafortunadamente, nunca pudimos conocer a Pete, pero Anna fue una anfitriona excelente y genial para conversar. La cabaña era súper acogedora y privada, sin embargo, Anna estaba cerca si necesitábamos algo. Lo recomiendo encarecidamente. Muchas gracias

    David2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • ¡Este lugar es un pequeño bolsillo de tranquilidad! Más grande de lo que esperaba, y tan encantador. Pete me dio algunas buenas recomendaciones sobre lugares a los que ir cerca, el Parque Nacional Glenveagh se encuentra a poca distancia en auto. Tuve una estancia encantadora, me encantó la cocina, me encantó la estufa de leña y el sonido de la lluvia en las ventanas. Un pequeño gran lugar por completo

    Andrea2019-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • Excelente fin de semana Pete estaba allí para saludarnos. Nos mostró qué era qué y era fácil contactarnos si lo necesitábamos. Estuvimos dos noches en el establo. Increíble lugar Sin duda recomendaría a cualquiera que se quede aquí. Clase superior. Las vistas eran asombrosas. Gracias Pete y Anna.

    This property is an ideal getaway as its location offers all the benefits of country, coastal(300 meters to beach) living and is a short distance (1.5km) from the shops and restaurants of Killybegs.
    The scenery is breathtaking. With private access to 3 beach coves that open onto Fintragh beach (blue flag). Untouched wildlife including birds of prey, otters, coastal birds, seals, dolphins and if you are very patient you might catch a glimpse of a puffin! In addition to its natural edge it has been at the very hub of historical events with neighbouring fields accommodating ring forts, neolithic tombs, waters sailed on by vessels that participated in the Spanish armada and on the beach at the foot of our land (near cove 2) a B-17 flying fortress crashed and submerged in the sands during 1944 (all survived). Or just simply fish mackerel, crab and lobster from the headlands.
    Local Pier , Kayaking, Cycling, Mountains, Fishing, Walking, Beaches, Surfing, Bird Watching and much much more.
  • La pasamos muy bien en la casa de Tina y David: era luminosa, bien decorada, y la chimenea creaba un ambiente particularmente acogedor. Estábamos en su mayoría fuera de casa, pero tuvimos algunas charlas encantadoras con Tina, y nuestros anfitriones también respondieron rápidamente a través de un mensaje privado. La señal wifi y telefónica puede ser un poco irregular, por lo que es posible que desee planificar un poco con anticipación si lo necesita para el trabajo (o simplemente dejar su trabajo en casa, que es la mejor opción :)).

    Tamara2019-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • Una gran casa de campo en una zona preciosa. Puedes caminar a la playa desde la cabaña, que es una verdadera ventaja. La cabaña está limpia y bien diseñada, con todo lo que necesita. Tina y David fueron unos anfitriones geniales, muy receptivos y con buenos consejos. Es una pena que solo estuvimos una noche. ¡Gracias de nuevo!

    Catherine2019-08-01T00:00:00Z
  • Nos encantó registrarnos para encontrar un fuego rugiente y música después de un largo viaje en un día frío y brumoso. La casa es exactamente como se describe: limpia, tranquila y cómoda. Está a poca distancia en coche de la ciudad y no muy lejos de los acantilados de la Liga Slieve. ¡Solo deseamos que el clima sea mejor para poder disfrutar de las playas a la vuelta de la esquina!

    Justina2019-07-30T00:00:00Z

    The listing is a lovely, modern, log cabin in a secluded spot located in the back garden of a fine suburban house in south Dublin. Free on street parking is available immediately outside the main residence. The listing is suitable for couples or solo travellers. There are no particularly strict house rules; all we ask is that you respect the property just as you'd like your own home to be respected. There is one cat in residence at the property.
    Lilac Cottage is a self contained, double bedroom, shower room, full working kitchen and living area with TV/DVD.
    Kimmage is a lovely, settled neighbourhood. Several good restaurants are within walking distance as are shops, pubs, parks, and a gym, yoga and pilates. It also has an excellent bus service which will bring you into the city centre in around 20 minutes.
  • ¡Adoré mi tiempo en Fidelma's! Ella fue muy acogedora y comunicativa. El lugar era muy cómodo, muy limpio y muy bien decorado. También disfruté de tener la cocina. La parada de autobús está muy cerca y realmente me gustó estar un poco alejado del ajetreo y el bullicio de la ciudad. ¡Ojalá me hubiera quedado más tiempo! Lo recomiendo mucho!

    Devyn2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Fidelma es un gran anfitrión y la cabaña es muy cómoda, elegante y limpia. Me encanta mi estancia en la cabaña.

    Marc2020-03-08T00:00:00Z

  • Un lugar encantador para alojarse en una excelente ubicación para explorar Dublín. La cabaña en sí era cómoda y espaciosa y exactamente lo que necesitábamos para nuestro mini descanso.

    Lisa2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Hermoso y acogedor alojamiento, romántico y acogedor.

    Adél2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Este pequeño lugar fue genial. Fue un poco difícil de encontrar solo porque las señales de tráfico en Irlanda no son tan claras y nuestro GPS aún no funcionaba, pero una vez que nos orientamos fue fácil. Fidelma ha creado un pequeño oasis en su patio trasero. Disfrutamos de una estancia agradable y tranquila, a poca distancia de una tienda de comestibles de servicio completo para comprar lo que necesita para preparar algunas comidas sencillas. Tomó café, té y otras cosas básicas en la cocina de esta pequeña casa. Recogimos una tarjeta de salto para el autobús en el centro comercial cercano para tomar el autobús número 9 a la ciudad todos los días para ahorrar un poco en nuestra tarifa de autobús: $ 2.50 v $ 3 por trayecto. La parada del busto estaba literalmente a la vuelta de la esquina. El proceso de registro fue fácil, estuvo en contacto con nosotros todo el tiempo, la cama era cómoda y el lugar era lindo y limpio. Envíame un mensaje si tienes alguna pregunta.

    A small slice of paradise on the sunny side of Lough Derg:-) The boathouse is self contained with full kitchen, bathroom and mezzanine bed. Private veranda with seating for 2 and a small BBQ. (No pets allowed)
  • Casita de en sueño sobre el lago. Despertarte por la mañana con vistas al lago y la costa al otro lado y dormirte con el sonido del agua junto a la chimenea de leña. Un auténtico remanso de paz y tranquilidad. Además Barry se preocupó de que estuviéramos en todo momento a gusto, nos dejó leña fresca y recomendaciones sobre lugares a visitar. Gracias Barry por tu amabilidad!!

    Paula2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • ¡El lugar de Barry en el Lough Derg es un sueño! ¡Tan idílico! ¡La hospitalidad de Barry y su mamá también fue genial! Nos dieron un aventón al pub local una de las noches y Barry nos arregló un aventón para un vecino de camino a casa. Fue un escape tranquilo y encantador del ajetreo y el bullicio de Dublín.

    Orla2020-02-23T00:00:00Z

  • Un bonito y pequeño lugar para una escapada romántica. Pintoresco y pacífico. Subir las escaleras fue un poco complicado. Barry es un tipo encantador y fue muy acogedor al igual que su madre. Se lo recomendaría a cualquiera.

    Chris2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Un retiro relajante en Lough Derg, lo único que lamentamos es que solo reservamos 2 noches. Podrías sentarte y mirar el agua todo el día. 30 minutos en coche del parque forestal de Portumna si quieres entrar. Reserve Pops Dream, ¡no se arrepentirá!

    Fiona2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • ¡El lugar de Barry es simplemente perfecto si buscas un momento tranquilo! ¡Cada detalle sobre el lugar era encantador y la vista desde él es impresionante! ¡¡¡Altamente recomendado!!!

  • Pequeño gran lugar, las vistas son increíbles, vale la pena una visita.

    Tony2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Soberbio. La ubicación es fantástica en el borde del lago. Está en el medio de la nada, tan encantador y tranquilo. La cabina es súper acogedora, con una hermosa estufa para mantener el lugar cálido. El lugar es encantador y lo convierte en una encantadora estancia relajante. ¡La vista sobre el lago, especialmente cuando te levantas, es impresionante! Todos los bits que necesita para cocinar, etc. están ahí. Barry fue un gran anfitrión, con respuestas rápidas a cualquier pregunta, muy flexible con el check in y una cálida bienvenida. ¡Lo recomiendo encarecidamente para una escapada relajante y apague!

    Stone walled self catering cottage, secluded, great views, excellent walks, close to Arklow and Wicklow towns. An hour from Dublin, Queen size bed and double sleeper couch,separate bathroom, kitchen/living room.Remote location, wifi available.
    Spacious, well equipped, authentic old stone cottage, ( circa 1640's). Two levels. Outside deck/patio area. Separate bedroom and bathroom area. Log stove.
    The location is remote, no street lights or passing traffic... The quietness at night is unique. The rising sun in the east over the Irish sea is clearly visible from the deck area. The stars at night are magnificent in the clear winter skies. We love the solitude and feeling of space the location provides.
  • Hermosa cabaña en una hermosa ubicación. Perfecto para un buen fin de semana lejos

    Dominic2020-04-19T00:00:00Z
  • Sanchia fue un súper anfitrión! El lugar era amplio, cómodo y tenía unas vistas fabulosas. Al igual que las fotos, si no mejor! Los caminos rurales hacia la cabaña eran un paseo encantador. La cocina estaba totalmente equipada para cocinar. Registro súper fácil y excelente comunicación. Incluye algunos toques encantadores, llegar a bollos caseros (¡todavía calientes!), Leche y huevos frescos, el fuego de leña y los perros que vienen a dar los buenos días. Definitivamente lo recomendaría. Una estancia totalmente agradable!

    Siobhan2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • Mi esposa y yo tuvimos que redirigir nuestra luna de miel a corto plazo y Sanchia fue brillante, dejándonos una botella de prosecco para que llegáramos. Excelente ubicación tranquila con naturaleza alrededor y animales amigables. Sanchia es un gran anfitrión y las comodidades son amplias. Un descanso realmente pintoresco y tranquilo y volveremos.

  • ¡¡¡Acogedor!!! Quiéralo

    Laura2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • Si te preguntas si deberías reservar este lugar; ¡deja de preguntarte y solo resérvalo! Esta es la mejor manera de experimentar el campo irlandés. Confía en mí, estuve allí durante la pandemia y aún así pasé un momento seguro y encantador. Sanchia es un anfitrión increíble y la cabaña es un lugar increíble. Se siente como en casa lejos de casa.

    Joshua2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Nos alojamos en el Granary Cottage por una noche, y fue el escape perfecto de la realidad. Ubicado a 15 minutos de la ciudad de Avoca, las instrucciones se pueden encontrar en google maps y eran fáciles de seguir. La cabaña en sí es acogedora, muy limpia, con interiores tradicionales que crearon la perfecta "escapada pacífica". Sanchia nos recibió al llegar y nos mostró la cabaña, que fue un toque personal encantador para nuestra estancia. La cocina tiene todo lo que necesitas para prepararte una comida, y la estufa de leña nos mantuvo acogedores toda la noche. Tuvimos una noche maravillosa de sueño ya que el lugar estaba muy tranquilo! ¡El desayuno en la terraza con vistas al valle y la ciudad de Avoca es imprescindible para la mañana siguiente! Para colmo, los bollos caseros y la mermelada de frambuesa que nos esperaban a la llegada fueron un toque final generoso que fue muy apreciado después de nuestro viaje. Muchas gracias a Sanchia por una maravillosa estancia. ¡Definitivamente lo recomendaremos a familiares y amigos!

    Sarah2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Hermosa casita, muy tranquila si quieres alejarte del ajetreo y el bullicio de la vida cotidiana. Las vistas son asombrosas

    Lisa2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • El lugar perfecto para alejarse de todo. Recibido cada mañana por perros y patos. Lejos de la multitud enloquecida, si quieres alejarte de todos, es el hogar perfecto lejos de casa, una gran selección de libros, videos y WiFi que funcionan. Maravillosas vistas y excelentes paseos cerca. Me hubiera encantado estar atrapado aquí. Amanecer

    Cahercastle has been standing since the late 1400s One needs to be somewhat crazy to be owned by a castle , itsowned me now for 20 years, anyway it is our home its not perfect, so don't expect perfection ,we do have cobwebs and a little dust (so asthma sufferers take note)We endeavour to make your stay as comfortable as possible Please note when making a request to stay please take time to write an introductory message or have an informative profile We look forward to welcoming you Peter / Eva
    A beautiful, original medieval castle experience can be yours for a weekend, a week, or even longer. You'll be staying in the master bedroom, the highest room in the castle. This castle has been restored to its original state by using traditional materials, and also by using cutting edge technology. We used traditional local stone, limestone, as well as oak beams, to make the castle as traditional as possible, but it also has modern conveniences, such as solar water heating. The castle was built sometime in the 1400's but was refurbished in the last decade. It is comprised of a master bedroom upstairs, with access to the turret, a living room and dining room, two guest bedrooms, and some storage rooms. I'm Peter, your host, and I spent the last ten years refining and refurbishing the castle - the pictures can attest to how well that has worked out. Two room in the castle are still under construction - the storage room downstairs. Remember, this is a castle that is over 600 years old. That means it's not perfect. Castles were never designed with bathrooms and showers, so we've improvised. You'll have to come downstairs to have a bath which is located in the living room - this is the quirkiest part of the castle. You have full private access to the living room,kitchen , bath and your master bedroom Castles are built with solid stone, so there is a huge fireplace with a cooker to keep the place warm and of course underfloor heating complements of our pet Dragon that lives in the dungeon The castle has lots of quirks, its a great and fun place to stay the night. Galway City is a 25 minute drive from the castle which is a very beautiful city. The castle is around a 20 minute drive from Galway Airport, a 45 minute drive from Shannon Airport and Dublin is two hours away. What to expect: lots of winding staircases, a castle that has been lovingly restored, but there are some cobwebs, and it gives you the real Irish castle experience. It's not pristine, its not perfect, but it's a real castle. There are lots of sheep and cows in the nearby fields - but lots of peace and quiet. This is a very unique place to stay. There's nothing like it around, where you can say that you stayed in an actual castle. It's not a tourist attraction (like Blarney Castle) and it's not pristine like a hotel, but you'll have a great time visiting. You'll need a car. The castle is about two miles from the nearest public transport. (Craughwell has both train and buses running regular schedules) I can help with anything like lighting a fire or answering any of your questions. P.S. as this is our home we like to get an idea of who's coming to stay so please write a message of introduction or have a written profile as we do sometimes decline if we just see a one liner and nothing on a profile so to avoid disappointment fill out your profile
    Countryside, farms, cows ,sheep , 3 acre garden, stream , river , trees, And you might see the odd fox, heron, pheasant, rabbit and of course the friendly farmers and neighbours cctv in operation outside the castle
  • ¡Fue una experiencia divertida y única que realmente disfrutamos! ¿Dónde más puedes quedarte en un castillo auténtico por un precio tan pequeño? Pete obviamente ama lo que hace y pone su corazón y su alma en esta increíble restauración. ¡Gracias Pete y Eva por compartir tu castillo con nosotros!

    Scott2020-03-28T00:00:00Z
  • Esta es una experiencia única en la hermosa campiña de Irlanda. Peter y su familia nos hicieron sentir como en casa con historias y sugerencias en medio de la pandemia de Covid-19. Reserve este lugar ahora!

    Phillip2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • Pete fue un anfitrión excepcional. Él cuenta una gran historia y te prepara con todo lo que necesitas para quedarte en un castillo y explorar los alrededores. Tienes los dormitorios y sala de estar. Pete ha hecho un trabajo increíble recreando este castillo con un montón de detalles de la época medieval y suficientes comodidades modernas para hacer una experiencia verdaderamente única. No puedo recomendar esta estancia lo suficiente. Fácilmente mi estancia favorita de Air BnB.

    Marc2020-03-15T00:00:00Z

    Geoffrey2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Nos encantó nuestra estancia aquí. El hotel es impresionante desde el exterior y tiene un ambiente acogedor por dentro. El personal y la gerencia lo manejan de una manera muy comunal con bollos gratis y Prosecco ayudando a reunir a los invitados en un solo espacio y crear un gran ambiente. Nos tomaron una foto en la cena una noche y la imprimieron como regalo gratis. Pequeñas cosas como esa marcan la diferencia y nos encantó el ambiente que intentan crear en su espacio. La ubicación es ideal si está tratando de moverse por diferentes partes de Connemara. La única pequeña queja que tengo es que la ducha que tuvimos no era nada potente y tuvimos que usar la manguera de baño, lo cual era inconveniente

    David2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Este lugar es increíblemente especial. Mucha atención personal. No puedo alabar este lugar lo suficiente.

    Geoffrey2019-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • Nos hubiera encantado quedarnos más tiempo en el castillo. Todos estuvieron muy atentos a nosotros y realmente crearon una experiencia. Estaba en una ubicación hermosa, se tarda 1 hora en coche desde Galway, la ciudad, pero muy bonita y soñadora. Había champán y queso, té y descuentos en la cena. La cena fue muy divertida y elegante. Incluso recibimos una lección de historia antes de la cena en el área, que fue muy atractiva. Todo lo que quieras hacer está a una caminata o en auto. Muy divertido en este castillo. Tenga en cuenta que el costo se basa en por persona, y es un poco más caro que en otros lugares. Sin embargo, es una experiencia. Todos fueron geniales.

    Marie2017-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Toni es una estrella absoluta de un anfitrión, no puedo decir suficientes cosas buenas sobre este breve viaje. El lugar era encantador, tranquilo, limpio, moderno y relajante. Además de todo lo demás, Toni es increíblemente paciente y muy servicial con sus invitados, por eso estoy muy agradecido. ¡Definitivamente regresaré a este lugar encantador para otro fin de semana relajante! ¡Muchas gracias, Toni!

    Jordie2017-12-04T00:00:00Z
  • Qué gran, lujoso, acogedor y especialmente encantador lugar para alojarse en mi lugar favorito en la tierra :) La cabaña era como mi pequeña casa perfecta para el futuro y Dublín está a sólo 25 minutos en autobús (parada de autobús a solo 4 minutos a pie) Todo lo que puedo decir es que todo fue perfecto, incluida la vista y, por supuesto, Toni. Gracias de nuevo por ser tan útil con todo! Me encantaría volver pronto!

    Doris2017-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • Esta cabaña pintoresca y acogedora viene con una vista de millones de dólares. La cabaña en sí era moderna y tenía todo lo que necesitábamos, incluida una cocina completa. Toni fue muy hospitalario y se tomó el tiempo para mostrarnos la cabaña y nos ofreció algunas recomendaciones geniales sobre qué hacer en Howth y Dublín. La cabina está a unos 15 minutos a pie del centro de Howth y del tren que te llevará a Dublín. Hemos disfrutado mucho de nuestra estancia. La proximidad a la encantadora zona de Howth y la accesibilidad a un tren en Dublín hicieron de este lugar una excelente ubicación para quienes deseen alojarse un poco fuera de la gran ciudad. The Howth Cliff Walk es una visita obligada. ¡Altamente recomendado!

    Anne2017-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • Pintoresco y fuera del camino trillado. Justo cerca del centro de la ciudad de un pueblo animado. Fácil acceso al transporte público al centro de la ciudad. Toni fue un anfitrión increíble, y fue más allá. ¡Espero que te quedes y pruebes su increíble pan de soda casero!

    William2017-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • Tuvimos una muy buena estancia en la cabaña. Somos 3 personas, pero de todos modos pude dormir en el sofá, que se convierte en una cama doble y fue fantástico. El área es impresionante, la cabaña está frente al mar y el paisaje no podría ser mejor. Es una zona tranquila pero cerca de Dublín. Dejaron comida para el primer día y siempre fueron muy amables con nosotros. Tuvimos algunos problemas el primer día por el auto, y nos ayudaron con todo. Muchas gracias Toni, espero verte pronto. Eres una buena gente.

  • Encantadora casa de campo de estilo moderno con fantásticas vistas y un ambiente acogedor.

    Steve2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • Este es un lugar encantador para alojarse! Nos encanta cocinar y asar a la parrilla, así que realmente apreciamos lo bien equipada que estaba la cocina. Y la chimenea era hermosa y cálida; ideal para jugar juegos todas las noches. Aunque es una sensación muy remota, la casa no está muy lejos del Parque Nacional de Connemara, la Abadía de Kylemore, el Fiordo de Killary, Crough Patrick y mucho más. Nuestros amables anfitriones también respondieron rápidamente a cualquier consulta, lo cual fue maravilloso. Me encantaría haber tenido más tiempo aquí, pero ¡ay, más de Irlanda llama!

    Anita2019-10-03T00:00:00Z

    Michelle2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • La escapada perfecta y la base ideal para explorar las bellezas de Connemara. Nuestra segunda vez aquí y estuvo a la altura de nuestras expectativas. Pequeños toques como la estufa de leña y listos para encender nos hicieron sentir realmente bienvenidos. El lugar de Triona está impecablemente limpio y muy cómodo. La foto no puede capturar cuán hermosa es esta parte de Connemara. Solo tienes que experimentarlo.

  • Fue una estancia maravillosa en la casa en una ubicación idílica y tranquila con vistas increíbles.

    Meike2019-09-06T00:00:00Z
  • El lugar de Trionas fue increíble. Qué pena que solo estuvimos tres noches. Cualquiera que busque un lugar tranquilo pero magníficamente hermoso será feliz en la casa de Trionas. Disfrutamos mucho de la chimenea. ¡Definitivamente regresaremos algún día!

  • Muy bonito estudio limpio y ordenado, Donna es muy rápida en respuesta y es una muy buena anfitriona. Definitivamente regresaría

    Alessia2020-05-03T00:00:00Z
  • Necesitábamos un lugar en el aeropuerto a última hora y esto fue PERFECTO, especialmente durante covid-19, donde realmente necesitábamos un lugar para nosotros para asegurar el distanciamiento social. Estaba muy cerca del aeropuerto, pero tranquilo. El proceso de check in / check out fue muy fácil, y Donna fue muy amable y fácil de comunicarse.

    Michelle2020-04-16T00:00:00Z
  • Lugar muy limpio y acogedor. Toques agradables como tener leche, pan, mantequilla, huevos y muchas otras cosas disponibles para su uso. Recomendaría.

    Barry2020-04-12T00:00:00Z
  • Es un lugar realmente agradable y limpio.

    Laura2020-03-23T00:00:00Z
  • El espacio de Donna es lindo, limpio y convenientemente cerca del aeropuerto. Ella fue muy flexible con nuestro check in ya que necesitábamos devolver nuestro auto alquilado varias horas antes del horario de check in solicitado. ¡Fue el lugar perfecto para nuestra última noche en Irlanda!

    Adam2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • Si es posible calificar un lugar con 6 estrellas en lugar de 5, lo haría para este. Donna fue más allá cuando mis planes de viaje de repente se volvieron muy tumultuosos (cortesía de COVID19). Ella realmente tiene un ojo para los pequeños toques que marcaron una diferencia sustancial en mi viaje, y logra un gran equilibrio entre profesional y encantador. ¡No solo recomendaría su lugar a un nuevo viajero a Irlanda, sino que también lo tengo en la mira para una posible visita el año que viene!

    Sherard2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • Pequeño lugar encantador! Disfrutamos nuestra estancia por la noche!

    Breanna2020-03-13T00:00:00Z

    This hexagon hut is situated on its own on land that is half orchard half woodland, 5 Km from Westport. It gives a nice view over the natural environment with wild life and low key farming. A few goats and a few hens roam in the adjoining field.
    The hexagon shaped cabin has decking on both sides to enjoy morning sun as well as evening sun. On the morning sun side, where the door is, the decking leads to the little bathroom building. The cuckoo is around from the end of April until the end of May. The Owenwee river with salmon and trout runs on about 200 Meter distance. Westport town is on 5 Km distance. Clew bay 2 Km . Nearest beach 7 Km. There is a nice and safe place to park the car at the bottom of the path leading to the cabin. Guests are free to roam the one third of an acre around the hut. There are beautiful walks around without having to use the car. One of the few native woods left is only 1,5 Km away. From 1 April till 1 October I don't take bookings for less than 3 nights Just for help if needed The neighbourhood of this place is extremely friendly and there is a big sense of community here. Public transport, busses and trains, is available in Westport. There is a safe opportunity to cycle to town. Westport town has great entertainment possibilities. Lots of traditional music, also good blue grass and jazz. Many coffee shops and restaurants and indeed a great choice of very interesting and unique shops.
    The neighbourhood of this place is extremely friendly and there is a big sense of community here.

    Dani2020-01-19T00:00:00Z

    Micheal2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • Lo pasamos de maravilla, si buscas paz, tranquilidad y relajación, este es el lugar perfecto. Me encantó el fuego de la estufa lo hizo tan acogedor.

Definitivamente volveré a este pequeño pedazo de cielo otra vez algún día.

Fue la parada perfecta donde pudimos cocinar una buena comida, sentarnos frente al fuego y ver un par de películas mientras nos sentimos como en casa. Peter respondió rápidamente cuando hizo un par de preguntas. Recomiendo encarecidamente este alojamiento si buscas un lugar para relajarte y recargar energías.

El alojamiento en sí es cálido y acogedor y, mientras está en el país, ofrece vistas mágicas si desea sentarse en el área de la terraza. Felicitaciones para Peter y los esfuerzos realizados para ofrecer este alojamiento.

    Andrew2019-10-31T00:00:00Z

    Maria2019-10-27T00:00:00Z

    Noehmi2019-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • Escapada de fin de semana perfecta para relajarse en la cabaña de Katy. ¡Tuve un fin de semana relajante simplemente explorando la playa cercana y muy afortunado con el clima también! Katy es una anfitriona maravillosa y se asegura de que tengas la mejor estadía. Hermosa casa y me encantó cada detalle del lugar. Recomiendo encarecidamente a cualquiera que quiera explorar Rush y sus alrededores, ya que no está lejos del centro de la ciudad en coche. ¡Gracias por su hospitalidad Katy y definitivamente regresaremos a su cabaña!

  • Este lugar era impresionante, pequeño y acogedor, como se describe, el balcón era agradable para pasar el rato y estaba bien ubicado para los lugares en Galway. Realmente disfrutamos de nuestra estancia.

    Het2018-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • ¡El apartamento estaba exactamente como se describe y perfecto para mí y para mi amigo que se queda en Galway por un par de noches! Muy cerca de la ciudad, a solo 10 minutos a pie ya unos 30-40 minutos a pie de Salthill. Tuvimos algunos problemas con la puerta cuando nos registramos, pero Mick fue muy rápido para comunicarse conmigo al respecto. No podría estar más feliz con el lugar, es pequeño pero hizo el trabajo!

    Sarah2018-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • El lugar de Mick era genial. Pequeño pero muy cómodo y bien equipado. Se puede ir caminando a la ciudad. Vimos una obra en el Druid y estuvimos allí en 10 minutos. Ojalá nos hubiéramos quedado más tiempo para conocer Galway un poco mejor.

    Christy2018-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • Precioso y acogedor espacio cerca de todo lo que necesita para una gran estancia.

    Brooke2018-07-18T00:00:00Z

    Anne2018-07-10T00:00:00Z
  • Muy conveniente para el centro de Galway, pero está ubicado en una calle residencial tranquila y segura. Tiene todo lo que necesita ... a menos que vaya durante el verano más caluroso de Irlanda desde 1976, en cuyo caso puede perderse el aire acondicionado. ¡Decir ah!

    Folan’s Cottage is a beautiful architecturally designed holiday home that was rebuilt in 2010 from two ruined stone cottages. It is only a few meters from a wonderful quiet sandy beach, with views of the Twelve Bens and across the ocean to the Arann Islands. The setting is magical and remote with just rabbits, sheep and Connemara ponies as your neighbours.

There are numerous coastal and hill walks in the immediate area and we are close to the Twelve Bens mountains which have some of the best hiking terrain in the country.
  • Disfrutamos muchísimo de nuestra estancia. La notable arquitectura, la impresionante ubicación frente al mar, el hermoso paisaje y la calidez de nuestra bienvenida. Al llegar, fuimos recibidos al atardecer por tres caballos blancos que hicieron que la experiencia fuera casi mágica. Este fue nuestro mejor momento en Irlanda, nos encantaría volver.

    Richard2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Tuvimos una maravillosa estancia en la impresionante cabaña de Folan. La casa es una joya arquitectónica en un lugar mágico. Está extremadamente bien equipado y cómodo. La comunicación de Simon fue excelente y todo el proceso fue muy fluido.

    Naomi2019-06-29T00:00:00Z
  • La casa de Simon es el lugar más hermoso en el que nos hemos alojado. La casa es impresionante, tan perfectamente diseñada y en una ubicación mágica. Estuvimos allí con un niño pequeño y él estaba hipnotizado mirando los caballos y las ovejas por las ventanas, encontrando conchas marinas en la playa y escuchando la lluvia cuando asaltaba. La ciudad de Roundstone es adorable y hay muchos lugares hermosos y especiales para visitar cerca. Este fue el punto culminante de nuestro viaje a Irlanda y definitivamente volveremos!

    Katie2019-04-27T00:00:00Z
  • Simon tiene un lugar magnífico con todo lo que necesitábamos para nuestra primera estadía en Irlanda. La playa es preciosa con vistas a la montaña detrás de la casa. Disfrutamos viendo la mañana de los caballos correr por el campo. La casa es remota, así que prepárate para conducir a las ciudades vecinas. Hicimos la caminata sobre la montaña a Roundstone, que era hermosa, pero terminó siendo mucho más desafiante y embarrada debido a una semana húmeda. ¡Nos encantaría volver en verano!

    Kelly2019-03-23T00:00:00Z
  • Excelente ubicación, elegante cabaña. Aunque era invierno, tuvimos una estancia maravillosa. Roundstone, Clifden y Errisbeg Senderismo fueron suficientes para nosotros, el resto del día miramos el mar ... o los ponis ... o el mar y los ponis.

    Annett2019-02-16T00:00:00Z

    Roundstone, Galway, Irlanda

    Recently awarded 'Most Unique Listing in Ireland' by Airbnb! This cabin is nestled in a tranquil woodland setting, with uninterrupted panoramic views over Lough Derg all the way to the Sliabh Aughty hills in Galway. The cabin is far away from busy roads and street lights and is a haven of birdsong, starry nights and spectacular sunsets with "one of the best views we have ever woken up to". Fully equipped with kitchen, bathroom and lofted bedroom; and is suitable for all seasons.
    You have a seperate entrance and car parking facility. We live adjacent to the cabin but it is not overlooked. The cabin was designed and built by Stephen (a master carpenter) who was inspired by the 'Tiny Homes Movement' which advocates living simply on a smaller scale. It is built from locally sourced timber, is fully insulated and has low voltage led lighting; all designed to increase sustainability and minimise the environmental impact. Although small in scale, the cabin contains everything you could need for a perfect holiday experience.
    This area is far from the busy tourist trails and is a well-kept secret haven of natural beauty. However, our central location means you are only an hour from the 'Wild Atlantic Way' and less than two hours from Dublin.
  • Un pequeño lugar perfecto para escaparse y relajarse. Tuvimos un encantador a pesar de que la mayoría de los lugares estaban cerrados debido a covid-19. Pasamos más tiempo caminando y haciendo turismo y cero tiempo en el pub, en realidad fue genial. Definitivamente recomiendo que revises este lugar.

    Andy2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • Nos encantó el lugar y el entorno. ¡Muy recomendable!

    Julian2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Steve y Aine son unos anfitriones maravillosos. Nos recogieron y nos dejaron en el centro de la ciudad de Nenagh ya que no teníamos nuestro propio vehículo. Nos proporcionaron todos los elementos esenciales que solicitamos y nos ayudaron rápidamente. La casa en sí está tan llena de comodidades que disfrutamos cada parte del "nido humano". Disfrutamos de la naturaleza en su máxima expresión. El canto de los pájaros y el olor del suelo húmedo y la hierba fueron terapéuticos y nos hicieron sentir contentos. Increíble lugar para quedarse. Ve a por ello. ♥ ️

    Sejal2020-03-05T00:00:00Z

  • Recomendaría este lugar a cualquiera que necesite un lugar para alojarse en Dublín, ubicado convenientemente cerca del centro de la ciudad. El anfitrión fue extremadamente amable y me dio una cálida bienvenida a su casa.

    In the heart one of Ireland's least known and unspoiled peninsulas this architect designed cozy eco chalet is REALLY off beaten the track (open & close 2 gates, unsurfaced road) in a yard with stabled ponies, ducks chickens and geese. Yet stylish, clean, and warm (3 heaters!). NEW mattress! Books about Ireland and local art. Bathroom with hot shower, washing machine. Toaster, cold water sink and electric kettle. New convection oven/microwave/grill unit. Composting toilet serviced regularly.
    We are a genuine AirBnB - a private place opened out to those who share the AirBnB ethos and not available any other way. On the Wild Atlantic Way and the Beara Way, the chalet is located near the ruined Kilcatherine Church, built by monks said to be practicing for work on the Skellig Islands across the Bay and near the largest ogham stone in Ireland. Protected oak woodlands nestle by Ballycrovane Pier where local fisherman still harbour - and there are no jet skis. Visitors who have booked for only one night wish they had known how special the area is and allowed more time! [Do note, fellow cooks, that the cooking facilities are limited - new unit this summer replaces microwave with a unit that adds convection oven and grill as well, and there is a grill and toaster and electric kettle. ] And guests have asked us to say that we really are off the beaten track - finding us in the dark is not advised - and the unsurfaced road has two gates that need to be opened and closed. But they all say its worth it!
    Secluded strands and hidden local piers. Ruins, wild headlands and unspoiled commonage running for miles. The end of the world. Castletownbere - about 18 kilometers distant - is the nearest town with restaurants and famous pubs. The Village of Eyeries - 5 km - has shop and post office and cafe. You can look out on one of the most remote bays - Ballycrovane - and headlands - the Cod's Head - on Ireland's west coast. You will never forget the experience, and you may even decide to return - or to never leave...
  • Gran lugar, un verdadero rincón del paraíso, tanto la cabaña como el paisaje circundante. Tony vino a recogernos porque no podíamos encontrar el camino por la noche, nuevamente muchas gracias. Reserve sin dudarlo, todo está ahí para unas vacaciones refrescantes.

  • El lugar de Tony es especial. Ayudó a que mi viaje fuera realmente increíble y lo recomendaría a cualquiera que busque un toque único. Era cálido, acogedor, tenía todas las comodidades que sentía que necesitaba y muchos toques que rebosaban de carácter. En una era de muchos Airbnbs identikit, este es un mundo aparte.

    Joe2019-12-19T00:00:00Z
  • El lugar era increíble y los alrededores eran demasiado hermosos. Fuimos bien alojados y atendidos y no podríamos haber tenido una experiencia más increíble ... sin duda volveremos

    Ryan2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Un lugar tan acogedor con hermosos animales para completar el hermoso paisaje.

    Erin2019-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • Nuestro lugar favorito para venir y quedarse. Siempre nos vamos sintiéndonos totalmente renovados y con ganas de quedarnos más tiempo.

    Erica2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Fantástica atención al detalle, todas nuestras necesidades fueron atendidas. Este es un espacio muy bien equipado, con una fantástica selección de libros. Fue una pena que solo estuviéramos allí una noche.

    Kevin2019-12-04T00:00:00Z
  • El lugar de Tony es como un sueño hecho realidad para los viajeros que intentan "alejarse de todo". Está bien del camino trillado, pero vale la pena! El área está llena de leyendas antiguas y me atrevo a decir magia. Nunca querrás irte una vez que llegues. Mi prometido y yo nos comprometimos en un círculo de piedra cerca del Eco-Chatlet, y no podría haber sido una chica más afortunada de haber elegido este lugar. Volveremos tan pronto como podamos gestionarlo. De lejos, nuestra estancia favorita en Irlanda.

    Jordan2019-11-29T00:00:00Z
  • ¡Este lugar es asombroso! Increíble vista con una biblioteca de muchos libros geniales. ¡Definitivamente querrás más de una noche aquí!

  • ¡Nunca te quedarás en ningún otro lugar como este! Está en una ubicación fantástica y céntrica, pero escondida en un oasis detrás de la casa de Richard. Nos quedamos en la casa del árbol después de la tormenta Denis, pero nos sentimos acogedores y seguros. ¡Deliciosos croissants también! Recomendamos encarecidamente una estancia en Urban Tranquilatree!

    Stephanie2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Un lugar tranquilo para alojarse a poca distancia del centro de la ciudad. Una habitación cálida y acogedora con vistas a la ciudad. Volveremos pronto.

    Pearl2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • La casa del árbol es un lugar tan divertido y único para quedarse. Definitivamente lo recomendaría. Por la mañana conseguimos cruasanes calientes en una cesta de picnic en la polea. Gran estancia!

    Nichole2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • B & b único, muy guay y diferente. Volveremos otra vez

    Anthony2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Wow ... las vistas son espectaculares! ¡Nuestro Airbnb favorito! Es perfecto para un retiro alejado de la rutina / vida laboral en general. Richard fue un excelente anfitrión, amable, atento y tuvimos una gran privacidad. Fuimos allí durante los fuertes vientos ... sinceramente, fue una de las mejores noches de sueño que hemos tenido! La casa del árbol está diseñada y diseñada a la perfección. Nos sentimos tan seguros y ajustados contra los elementos ... ni siquiera corrimos las cortinas. Muchas gracias, nuevamente Richard de Kevin y yo.

    Siobhan2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • ¡Más como Tree Chateau! Todo ha sido pensado de arriba a abajo para crear una experiencia única. Todos los detalles desde el check in hasta el check out, el desayuno en una polea y la increíble vista están fuera de este mundo.

    William2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Gran estancia !! Lo recomiendo encarecidamente! Un lugar tan divertido con una gran vista de Cork. Corto paseo a la ciudad y el anfitrión fue muy servicial, amable y receptivo.

    Sarah2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Esta fue nuestra segunda vez en la casa del árbol y fue perfecto. Cerca de la ciudad para poder pasear y tomar unas copas. El lugar está impecable como de costumbre. El desayuno era magnífico, los cruasanes eran cálidos y frescos, recomiendo una estancia aquí. Probablemente haremos dos noches la próxima vez.
