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'.

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 je nejlepší. Dala nám tipy, co vidět, když jsme tu byli. Byla velmi vstřícná a nápomocná. Nemohl udělat nic lepšího. Je to také nádherná stará budova. Určitě bychom se určitě vrátili a doufali, že jednoho dne. Díky, Karin!

  • Tento byt miloval téměř vše a v pěší vzdálenosti od atrakcí

    Karen2019-08-01T00:00:00Z
  • Úžasné! Miloval to.

  • Roztomilé místo a Karin byl skvělý hostitel. Je to trochu chůze do centra města, asi 10 minut, ale rád jsme se vydali pěšky a zkontrolovali věci. Je to trochu datovaný, který přidává k kouzlu, ale mohl použít několik aktualizací, jako jsou novější ručníky a další přikrývky, protože to může trochu chladit přes noc. Celkově to byl skvělý pobyt!

  • Karinovo místo je poměrně okouzlující a bylo velmi dobře umístěno, protože jsem potřeboval podnikat v nedalekém Croke Parku. Během svého pobytu jsme měli historické sněhové bouře, ale nechala všechny systémy. Jak jsem odjel, shromáždila se předem, ale vynaložila si čas na to, aby nabídla užitečné rady, protože jsem se pokoušel vyjednávat o další fázi své cesty za náročných okolností (počasí).

    Tom2018-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Toto místo je skvělé, umístění je špičkové, daleko od skutečných davů, ale nacházíte se v centru. Koutkem okolí jsou také vynikající asijské restaurace a na rohu dobrý supermarket, kde si můžete vyzvednout pár věcí pro váš domov, pokud to bude nutné. Karin nabízí srdečné přivítání s vajíčkem, mlékem a müsli, kávou a čajem na snídani, a pokud tam není, Jackie vás uvítá a vysvětlí vše. Dále je to hezké a prostorné, vše je tam, i když jste zapomněli něco, co byste si asi našli v šatně v koupelně, je to myšleno všude. Doporučujeme!

    Nathalie2018-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Tento krásný malý byt má vše, co byste někdy potřebovali k pobytu v Dublinu. A více. Má také charakter. A rychle jsem ji začal milovat, takže pokud zůstanete tam, respektujte to, některé starší starší prvky, jako jsou vnitřní okenice, musí být provedeny správně. Jsou trochu složení jako mapa. Ale jakmile to víte, je to snadné. Můj oblíbený komfort (pokud jsem musel vybrat oblíbenou) byla luxusní pohodlná postel. Co je důležitější než příjemný spánek? Karin byla krásná a jsem velmi vděčný, že jsem měl v Dublinu tak nádhernou domovskou základnu. Vždycky si zapamatuji svou nádhernou návštěvu Dublinu.

    Sharon2018-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Bylo skvělé bydlet u Karina. Nedokázala se s ní setkat, ale vše popsané a spousta jasných pokynů pro vlastní kontrolu. Čistý a uklizený. Doporučujeme.

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).

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..
  • Nenajdete lepší než Karin. Skvělé jedinečné studio s podkrovím a skvělým hostitelem

    Thomas2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Nádherný, krásný a velký byt s promyšlenými doteky a vybavením. Hostitelé jsou velmi vstřícní a přátelští. Vřele doporučuji.

    Michelle2019-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • Poloha je perfektní, můžete odtamtud jít téměř kamkoli. Máte úplný přístup k místu, takže můžete přijít a odejít podle libosti.

    Thomas2019-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • Karinovo místo bylo úžasné. Obrázek říká tisíc slov, ale obrázky jí neumožňují spravedlnost. Byt byl útulný, ale velmi elegantní. Její pozornost k nejmenším detailům byla ohromující. Měla dokonce k dispozici univerzální převodník nábojů a čekala na plášti. Všechno tam bylo pro naši první snídani, která negovala nakupování. Dokonce naložila prádlo na poslední chvíli, takže jsme mohli pokračovat v cestě čistým oblečením. Dům byl centrálně umístěný, blízko ke všemu a okolí bylo docela bezpečné. Je mi líto, že náš pobyt v Dublinu byl tak krátký, že jsme si neměli trávit dost času užívat si tento krásný dům daleko od domova. Přesto nám to dává jen další omluvu k návratu do Dublinu!

    Cheryl2019-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • Karinův byt je příležitostí k pobytu v historickém prostoru v Dublinu. Kuchyně byla modernizována a má veškeré vybavení, které budete potřebovat. Je chůze od stanice Connolly, kde je několik velkých obchodů s potravinami a jen pár minut od zastávky LUAS Parnell.

    Brian2019-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • Vynikající poloha, jak je to procházet kdekoli ve městě, zvláštní místo, aby vaše cesta skvělé kvality. Karinovo místo má nejen zvláštní pocit, ale zahrnuje vše, co potřebujete, včetně vanového zboží a kuchyňských potřeb, stejně jako snídaně! Zůstali jsme u mnoha Airbnbs a toto místo nám dalo nejvíce inspirace pro to, co chceme dělat s naší vlastní.

    Maho2019-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Karinovo místo bylo úžasné! Prostor byl velmi pohodlný a vypadal krásně, ale doma. Poloha byla velmi blízko k mnoha zajímavostem; chodili jsme všude. Karin, sama, byla velmi milá a příjemná. Opravdu se stará o své hosty. Jediným problémem je, že sprcha je velmi malá.

    Shannon2019-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Karinovo místo je lepší než si dokážeš představit. Její teplo a pohostinnost byly bezkonkurenční. Využila jsem mnoho tipů, jak vidět a dělat to, co poskytuje, a přála si, aby se ke mně připojila na mých pokračujících cestách; byla tak informovaná o historii lokalit blízkých i vzdálených. Nebudeš zklamaný.

  • Poloha byla velmi klidná a krásná, blízko centra města. Byt byl velmi prostorný a pohodlný pro 6 osob !! Děkuji za všechno ... ♥ ️

    Katerina2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • V tomto půvabném bytě jsme měli skvělý čas! Bezpodmínečně jsme postupovali podle Liamových pokynů k přihlášení a ocenili jsme příručky a průvodce městem, který pro nás nechal. Rychle reagoval, když jsme měli malý problém s budovou (ne s jeho bytem) a byl vyřešen velmi rychle a efektivně. Miloval oblast - Smithfield byl velmi cool a my jsme byli velmi blízko Jameson Distillery. Guinness Storehouse byl kousek pěšky a do centra asi 15 minut chůze. Skvělé místo k pobytu, pokud chcete prozkoumat vše, co Dublin může nabídnout ... rádi bychom navštívili nedaleký park Phoenix, ale minuli jsme čas! Neváhejte a rezervujte si tento skvělý prostor!

    Hannele2019-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • Skvělý byt na perfektním místě. Přes Liffey a jen dost daleko od Temple Baru, ale snadná procházka! Byt měl dostatek prostoru pro čtyři dospělé a byl velmi čistý. Liam byl skvělý hostitel a velmi vstřícný. Vřele doporučuji!

    Erin2019-09-29T00:00:00Z

  • Liamovo místo bylo skvělé a Liam byl fantastický hostitel. Taková krásná lokalita a stylový byt.

    Kelly2018-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • Moji čtyřčlenná rodina měla fantastický pobyt zde! Všechno bylo tak popsáno a Liamovy vynikající směry a fotografie dělaly to, co mohlo být velmi jednoduché. Byt byl krásný, čistý a klidný a zamilovali jsme se na oblast Smithfield ... hodně procházeli všemi místy, které jsme chtěli navštívit. Zůstal bych tady znovu v srdci.

    Paul2018-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Opravdu, opravdu pěkný a čistý byt. Přímo v centru Dublinu. Přeji si zůstat déle!

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. 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 (URL HIDDEN) Daily services in Synagogue at 32a Rathfarnham Road, Public Transport: Buses: (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN).

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!
  • Měli jsme nádherný pobyt v Karinově místě v Dublinu a velmi vřelé a snadné přivítání. Studio je plné zajímavých dekorativních nádechů a je prostorné a krásné, aby se tam dostalo. Je to také skvělé umístění na mnoha místech. S naší zkušeností velmi spokojen.

  • Měli jsme skvělý pobyt! Poloha byla pro nás skvělá, jen pár minut chůze od ulice O'Connell a věže a opravdu snadnou chůzi směrem k řece. Skvělý přístup na stránky Severního Dublinu. Spousta restaurací a hospod v okolí a výhled na Mountjoy Square Park přímo přes ulici! Uvnitř je dům naprosto krásný, dobře udržovaný gruzínský dům s úžasnými detaily, které pokračují v samotném bytě. Pěkný soukromý prostor, fantastický pracovní krb, obří okna a jen spoustu historických prvků. Útulná postel v podkroví. Skvělá kuchyně, s krásnými promyšlenými doteky, včetně jogurtu, ovoce, kávy a dalších. Check-in byl snadný a velmi soběstačný, a my jsme byli schopni opustit naše tašky brzy nebo pozdě podle potřeby; určitě zůstane znovu! Jaká velká šance zažít gruzínský Dublin!

  • Přišel do Dublinu na koncert v parku croke. Tento byt je doslova za rohem, levnější než hotel s mnohem lepším vybavením a přidanými doplňky. Určitě tu zůstaneme znovu!

  • Místo bylo přesně tak, jak bylo popsáno a Sarah byla úžasná hostitelka, přátelská, vstřícná a nápomocná

    Melanie2019-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • Stáje Castleknock jsou prostě vynikající! Není dost slov k popisu tohoto elegantního, ale pohodlného airbnb. Sarah byla nejvíce vítaným a interaktivním hostitelem, se kterým jsme se setkali - nejlepším možným způsobem. Ložnice jsou pohodlné a prostorné. Kuchyň a TV místnost jsou útulné. Někteří z nás využili bazén, saunu a hernu. Poloha je perfektní, hned za Phoenix Park. Je to krásná oblast: bezpečná, čistá, luxusní. Vzali jsme taxíky do az města, za cenu asi 20 EUR za každou cestu. Můžete vidět, proč bylo toto místo pojmenováno Irsko jako nejunikátnější Airbnb Location 2016! Jen skvělá dovolená pro všechny!

    Chris2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Výjimečná, tichá, přesto rychlá jízda taxíkem do města. Zůstanu znovu.

  • Skvělá lokalita a krásný prostor! Nebudete zklamáni, pokud si pro svou skupinu vyberete tento domov!

  • The Old World Stableyard je neuvěřitelnou oázou z rušného Dublinu a je tak dechberoucí, jak ukazují obrázky. Sauna a krytý bazén nabízejí skvělý způsob, jak omladit po dlouhém dni a užívat si jedinečných příležitostí, které oblast nabízí. Postele jsou pohodlné a místo je velmi čisté. Obytný prostor v kuchyni je příjemným místem pro shromažďování a zábavu si můžete v okolí, kde se nachází kulečníkový stůl, více vykopat. Moje nejoblíbenější místo bylo na nádvoří, které sedělo u terasy a užívalo si výhledů a klidu při relaxaci. Skvělé místo k pobytu! Vřele doporučuji!

    Robert2019-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • Úžasné ubytování, přátelští hostitelé! Přímo na Phoenix Park v pěší vzdálenosti od několika skvělých hospod. Zůstali jsme pouze jednu noc, ale prostor jsme si užili. Doporučil bych.

    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!
  • Toto je perfektní místo! Můžete chodit ke všemu, co jste chtěli dělat v Dublinu. Byt byl stylový a čistý a Dardo poskytoval velmi snadný a úplný návod z letiště.

    Katy2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Krásný čistý byt přímo na Liffey. Měli jsme skvěle relaxační vánoční vaření, sledování filmů a obdivování řeky ve všech jejích osobnostech. Check-in byl snadný, Dardo byl velmi vstřícný a měli jsme vše, co jsme potřebovali pro pohodlný pobyt. Vřele doporučuji.

    Kevin & Serena2019-12-26T00:00:00Z

  • Skvělá poloha, ve skutečnosti nemůže být lepší, pokud chcete být v docházkové vzdálenosti od všech hlavních památek, hospod, restaurací v Dublinu a také snadného přístupu z letiště. Velký otevřený prostor s veškerým vybavením, které potřebujete, v pěkné soukromé budově. Dardoova pomoc a komunikace byly během rezervace skvělé. Díky Dardo! Měli jsme ten nejlepší víkend

  • Tři Cs: Pohodlí - skvělé umístění! Pohodlné - ideální pro nás 2! Čistota - bez poskvrny! Místo Darda bylo skvělé, jak již bylo zmíněno ve všech recenzích. Místo je přesně na obrázku, na perfektním místě a Dardo poskytl vše, co jsme potřebovali pro naši návštěvu. Také nám dal několik opravdu skvělých místních návrhů. Nebudete zklamáni svým pobytem zde!

  • Dardo místo bylo úžasné. Miloval jsem nespresso kávu! Stylové, pěkně vybavené vybavení, pohodlné, čisté a výhled a umístění je to nejlepší, co Dublin může nabídnout. Rád bych se vrátil a zůstal déle. Děkujeme, že jste nás nechali zůstat ve vašem skvělém prostoru!

  • Liamovo místo bylo skvělé místo pro náš jednodenní pobyt. Byla to rychlá procházka ke všem atrakcím, které jsme chtěli vidět (pivovar Guinness, Temple Bar atd.). Liam byl velmi komunikativní a vstřícný. Doporučil bych!

    Nicole2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • Měli jsme skvělou návštěvu Dublinu. Liam je skvělý hostitel a odpověděl na všechny naše otázky před svým pobytem. Byt byl v docházkové vzdálenosti od turistických atrakcí a restaurací. Má také stylové zařízení a skvělou kuchyň. Doporučil bych ostatním, kteří pobývají v Dublinu.

  • Náš pobyt v „Pops Dream“ nemohl být lepší. Barry byl po ruce od našeho příjezdu, oheň už svítil. Malá kabina je v ohromující oblasti - z pohodlí pohovky nádherný výhled na Lough Derg. To je absolutně perfektní místo pro útěk od shonu - odbočte po vytrhnuté trati - ale tak hezké, že se stačí jen párkrát vrátit a úplně se uvolnit. Jediným problémem bylo, že jsme nezůstali dostatečně dlouho! Určitě se vrátí!

    Garrett2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Prostě nádherný a útulný a ty názory ... Děkuji Barry! Byli jste tak laskaví a ohleduplní.

    Ellie2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • Kabina Barrys byla úžasná. Byli jsme tam uprostřed bouřkového brendanu a když jsme dorazili, zapálili jsme kamna a jezero v pozadí bylo malebné. Nejlepší Airbnb, ve kterém jsem zůstal. Vřele doporučuji, pokud navštívíte oblast. Vrátíme se. Děkuji za všechno.

    Chris2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Měli jsme tu báječný čas, takové úžasné místo. Krásný útěk, pokud se chcete uvolnit, Barry je skvělý hostitel. Vysoce doporučeno.

    Peter2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • Barryho místo jsem miloval znovu a určitě bych se vrátil! dík

    Jack2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Ráj v přírodě. Rozhodně se vrátím. Pohled z loděnice je úžasný. Ráno jsem strávil sledováním východu slunce, zabaleným v teplé dece a vypařováním horké kávy na palubě. Jediným zvukem byl pták a jemný šelest větru. Barryho místo je poklidný klenot, uhnízděný mimo vyšlapanou stopu. Zařízení jsou skvělé a pohostinnost vynikající. Barry i jeho matka Kay byli vřelí a velmi vstřícní. Díky za všechno!

    Lisa2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Na tomto místě nemůžu nic zavinit, zůstali jsme nad NYE a bylo to naprosto perfektní! Díky ohni byla kabina pěkná a útulná, i když venku byla docela zima a Barry se vrátil s další dřevinou po první noci, která byla opravdu promyšlená. Ideální pro klidnou přestávku od veškerého šílenství! Určitě se vrátíme.

    Tara2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Barry byl vynikající hostitel, a tak vstřícný. Zůstali jsme v kajutě po Vánocích a bylo to tak útulné, s burácením ohně a krásným výhledem na jezero. Naše oblíbená část byla ráno, když jste viděli slunce stoupající nad jezerem. Bylo to dechberoucí. Děkujeme za úžasný pobyt Barry!

  • Opravdu jsme si užili super uzavřenou pláž (skákali do studené vody a běželi domů, spousta zábavy :) Je hezké, že části staré budovy byly zachovány a střecha v ložnici je rustikální a romantická. Vynikající pohled - spousta žárlivých přátel, když jsem poslal své fotky domů.

    Verena2018-08-09T00:00:00Z
  • Strávil jsem stodolu pro svou rodinu na dlouhý víkend a byli potěšeni jejich pobytem. Poloha je krásná a výhled z velkých čelních oken byl neocenitelný a stodola byla stejně jako obrázky, jen krásné! Celá moje komunikace s Gregem byla také rychlá a příjemná, doporučuji :)

    Claire2018-04-10T00:00:00Z
  • Nemůžete doporučit toto místo dost! Názory jsou naprosto neuvěřitelné. Dokonce i za deštivého dne můžete být šťastní, když jste na oknech posečeni, když si vychutnáte teplo z ohně a díváte se na hory a moře. Miloval to!

    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
  • Páni! Jaké místo!

    Gordy2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Všechny ostatní recenze se to týkaly, ale je to zážitek, který se stal jednou za život, a není absolutně žádný důvod, proč byste si to neměli rezervovat. Nebudeš toho litovat. Sledování východu z hradeb není něco, na co brzy zapomenu, a nadále bylo neskutečné, že je třeba vylézt na točité schodiště z místnosti do místnosti.

    Adam2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Přineste si svetr a ducha dobrodružství! Je to opravdu dobrodružství na zámku, ale s několika moderními vymoženostmi. NE pro slabé srdce nebo ty, kteří očekávají tradiční zážitek z ubytování. Existuje několik letů točitých schodů, které mají stoupat / klesat a kamenné zdi vytvářejí vlhký chladný zážitek. Bylo to pro mě naprosto úžasné, ale ne pro všechny společníky, zejména pokud je obtížné vylézt na kamenné točité schodiště.

  • To bylo úžasné! Jedno z nejzajímavějších, výstředních a zábavných míst, které jsem kdy zůstal, ale mohu to také říci o peterovi. Rozhodně to byl Peteův hrad - žádný jiný hostitel nemohl umístit vlastní razítko na místo, jaké má. bych velmi doporučil toto místo, cítil jsem se jako dítě v obchodě se zvědavostí, jediná nevýhoda ...... rezervovali jsme dostatečně dlouho, takže si opravdu myslím, že revitace je na kartách. Děkuji, peter, jsi špičkový hostitel.

    Stephanie2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Ještě jednou jsme s partnerem měli další kouzelný pobyt v Peteově zámku - milujeme to tak moc, že se to stává jako domov z domova, který nikdy nepřestane překvapovat všemi správnými způsoby. Pete, Eva a Rian jsou také fantastickí hostitelé, kteří nás vždy nutí být tak vítáni, takže je to spíš jako navštěvovat přátele, kteří vám dovolí veškeré soukromí, které potřebujete !! Nemůžu to doporučit dost vysoko! Odpočítávání spánek do našeho dalšího pobytu

    Rachel2020-01-03T00:00:00Z

    The Cow Shed is a cosy, rustic converted byre situated 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.
    We are centrally located in a beautiful part of Donegal, close to most of its attractions. The cottage is nestled in a valley 3km from the scenic village of Fintown.

  • Anna byla tak teplá a přívětivá hostitelka! Čekala na nás další hodinu, jak jsme se tam dostali později, než se čekalo, a chata byla tak teplá a útulná, když jsme vešli dovnitř (nechala oheň několik hodin pro nás). Bylo to velmi okouzlující a měl spoustu domácích doteků, bylo to pohodlné, měl úžasný výhled na noční oblohu z postele a Anna nám dala několik skvělých doporučení, která nám pomohla rozhodnout se, kam navštívit a ušetřit nám další čas jízdy. Pokud budeme někdy v Donegalu znovu, určitě se vrátíme! Díky Anna!

  • Místo Pete a Anny nabízí vynikající příležitost odpojit se a odpočinout si. Z chaty se můžete vydat do krásného výhledu na hory a vrátit se zpět do tepla kamna na dřevo. To by bylo skvělé místo pro strávení zimy!

  • Chata byla jedním z našich oblíbených Airbnbs! Je těžké popsat, jak zvláštní je tato zastávka na naší cestě. Zůstali jsme tu dvě noci a bylo to přesně to, co jsme potřebovali, abychom zpomalili a odpojili se. Chata je velmi útulná s knihami ke čtení, hrami a hudbou. Mají sladkou kočku, která přichází do okna a miluje navštívit. Byl to bezvadně čistý a pohodlný prostor. Vřele doporučujeme pobyt zde!

  • Kdybychom mohli dát toto místo šest hvězd, my bychom! Jaký dokonalý ústup - můj manžel a já jsme si pár dní odpočinku v této nádherné chalupě, a nemohl být více potěšen. Milovali jsme, jak blízko to bylo k Národnímu parku Glenveagh, a myslel, že pohledy jsou jen velkolepé. Pete a Anna se tak snadno bavili a navíc byli vítáni, když jsme tam byli. Rád bych se sem někdy vrátil :)

    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.

  • Kouzlo a více kouzla. Tento Top House je rozkošný a pohodlný a ideální pro dovolenou. Milovali jsme kopce, scenérii a počasí. William nám dal tipy na věci, které můžeme vidět a dělat, což nám umožňuje podporovat místní podniky, farmy a řemesla. Šel jsem na dobrou procházku do kopců hned za dveřmi. A navštívili Clonbur a Cong za dobré použité knihkupectví a irské obědy. Dokonce navštívil místní gal, která stříhá, barví a točí vlnu z jejích ovcí s černýma nohama. Kéž bychom zůstali déle. Vřele doporučuji.

  • Tophouse je úžasný! Užijte si nejlepší výhled z vlastní hory :) William je přátelský a nápomocný

    Susanne2019-08-01T00:00:00Z
  • Úžasně klidné místo k pobytu v idylické scenérii. Rozumně centrální pro všechny atrakce Connemary a našich pět nocí nestačilo prozkoumat je všechny. Trochu obtížné najít zpočátku (ne říkat nav), ale stojí za to, když jsme to udělali.

    Dennis2019-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • Pokud hledáte klid a pohodu v nejpohodlnějším prostředí vůbec ... nehledejte dále. William je vynikající hostitel ... je také nápomocný. Tophouse bylo vše, co bylo popsáno a další .. opravdu pěkným designovým prvkem je čtecí prostor v mezipatře a toalety na obou úrovních. Mycí a sušící zařízení jsou v kůlně vedle. K dispozici je WiFi, ale omezený signál, takže si své prohlížení stáhněte dříve, než přijdete. V kuchyni je dostatek potřebných věcí v kuchyni, které zbyly z předchozích úkolů, ale budete potřebovat mléko atd. Mějte na paměti, že nejbližší obchod je dobrá cesta pryč. Výhledy venku jsou ohromující a je to vynikající centrum pro pěší. Nechtěli jsme odejít!

    Julie2019-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • Williams Cottage je krásně situován nedaleko vesnice Clonbur. Dům je dobře vybaven vším a přátelský hostitel William může dát skvělé tipy na aktivity. Na všechny památky v okolí se dostanete autem za hodinu. Ve dvoutýdenním pobytu jsme toho hodně viděli, ale mohli jsme také strávit den doma a užívat si bezprostředního okolí. Krajina je neuvěřitelně rozmanitá a krásná. Mohli jsme se úžasně uvolnit a poznat krásné Irsko se svými přátelskými lidmi a rádi se vrátit.

  • Chalupa Williams je autentická, moc se nám to líbilo. Pokud hledáte odlehlé místo v irských zelených kopcích, jste na správném místě. William je velmi ohleduplný a dává vám pěkné rady ohledně procházek; rádi se vrátíme!

    Helene2019-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • Skvělá chalupa s krásným výhledem! Určitě vám umožní zažít něco méně turistického, což velmi oceňuji. Dobře udržované a příjemné dotyky, aby se to cíti jako útěk.

    Victoria Drummond Tower was built as a Folly Tower in the victorian period in 1858 by Victor Drummond Delap as part of Monasterboice House & Demesne. The tower is regarded as a folly tower built in remembrance of his late mother Victoria Drummond Delap. Recently restored into a small habitable dwelling and is now available for rental for selected months of the year. A very unique and enjoyable place to stay with a vast range of local & historical amenities at your disposal.
    Drummond Tower comprises of 4no. floors including a top roof level which guests can enjoy extensive views of the surrounding countryside. The ground floor comprises of a kitchen area with cooking and washing facilities. On the first floor there is a comfortable living room with adequate space to relax and watch TV or read books form the extensive book collection. There are 2no. couches with 1no. being a comfortable double sofa bed. The second floor bedroom is the last of the internal floors which comprises of a queen sized bed with en-suite, shower and washing facilities. One of the great advantages is waking up in the mornings and looking out over the tree tops and the immediate countryside. The top floor level is the external castellated roof terrace. There is 360 degree views of the area and space to enjoy the fine weather. The roof terrace is illuminated so one can access the area during at night to look at the stars
    Drummond Tower is situated in the countryside on the Boyne Valley Drive - R168. 5 mins from Monasterboice Round Tower & Melifont Abbey. Newgrange, Dowth, Oldbridge (Battle of the Boyne) and Slane / Collon Village is within 15mins drive. Drogheda is located nearby with shopping, Restaurants and Bars. We would recommend Monasterboice Inn (5 mins drive) with selection of fine food & beverages. Also check out "No. Three" in the local Village of Collon which would be approx 3 miles or visit the lovely village of Slane and have a pint on Boyles Pub

  • Měli jsme tu krásný pobyt, tak krásnou kuriózní a útulnou chatu, kterou jsme téměř nechtěli opustit! Domácí chléb byl vynikající a měl všechno, co jsme potřebovali :) bylo to ideální pro romantický útěk, velmi relaxační a útulný. Určitě by doporučil komukoli zůstat tady, i když by bylo užitečné auto.

    Olivia-Grace2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Pokud chcete soukromou klidnou a idylickou přestávku v tradičním stylu irské chalupy, nemohl bych toho doporučit. Ještě jednou děkuji. Milovali jsme to

    Mark2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Skvělá komunikace před pobytem. Velmi vřelé přivítání. Chata je naprosto okouzlující. Okouzlující místo pro klidný a klidný den po dni aktivity v Galway a okolí. Vřele doporučujeme pro jedinečný zážitek z dovolené!

    Renee2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • To byl perfektní útěk do krajiny. Rozkošná chata, nedaleko od centra města Galway. Úžasní hostitelé - dokonce při příjezdu nechali čerstvý bochník chleba. Chata byla čistá a rozkošná. Doporučil bych 10/10, pokud navštívíte Galway!

    Kimberlee2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Měli jsme tu velmi pohodlný pobyt. Chata byla malá, ale velmi útulná a přesně to, co jsme potřebovali pro náš dvounočný pobyt. Romain poskytl několik velmi užitečných tipů na místa k jídlu ve městě a během check-inu byl velmi přátelský. Všechno bylo v dobrém stavu. Milovali jsme oheň - bylo to snadné a chata zůstala v teple. Ocenili jsme chléb, vejce a koření ponechané na snídani.

    Elizabeth2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • Tato chata má velmi zvláštní charakter. Je to velmi útulné a máte pocit, že ustoupíte v čase. Byli jsme nuceni se cítit velmi vítáni a pěkné dárky byly navíc, které jsme neočekávali. Vysoce doporučeno

    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.
  • Nemůžu doporučit Fidelminu Lilac Cottage dost! Její komunikace ve vedení až do našeho příjezdu byla tak informativní a nápomocná. V den, kdy nás pozdravila, ukázala nám, jak všechno fungovalo v chatě, a řekla nám, abychom se jen zeptali, jestli něco potřebujeme. Pak je samotná chata úžasná! Dispozice je tak dobře promyšlená, že i když je to ložnice, kuchyň / jídelna v jedné, je tak prostorná! Vždycky bylo teplo, které bylo krásné vrátit se po dni v chladu a mělo to vše, co jste si mohli myslet, že budete potřebovat. Tato lokalita je skvělá díky dvěma velmi pravidelným autobusům do centra města, ale měla také malé město v docházkové vzdálenosti, které má vše, co potřebujete. Měli jsme tak krásný čas a určitě bychom znovu navštívili!

    Ellie2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • To je perfektní malý útěk! Získáte spoustu soukromí a umístění je ideální pro vše, co chcete v Dublinu vidět! Kabina je tak hezká, že jste zapomněli, že jste ve velkém městě. Jste 15 minut od centra Dublinu a jsou tam 2 perfektní autobusové zastávky, pokud nemáte nájem. Pohostinnost je perfektní a Fidelma vám rychle pomůže! Znovu bych naprosto zůstal s Fidelmou!

    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.

  • Moje sestra a já jsme měli skvělý čas v Hexagonu! Je to v krásné oblasti nedaleko Westportu. Toto místo je perfektní pro lidi, kteří chtějí prozkoumat během dne a útulně se v blízkosti kamny na dřevo v noci. Určitě bych doporučil plánovat jíst většinu jídel ve městě, protože kuchyně neměla příliš mnoho prostoru na vaření a alarm kouře je velmi citlivý. Buďte také připraveni na krátkou sprchu! Voda se horká, ale je to určitě spíše rychlá výplachová situace. Velmi doporučuji Hexagon! Bylo to perfektní útěk a pohledy jsou naprosto úžasné. Díky znovu, Irma!

    Amanda2019-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Místo Irmy je rozkošné a ona je velmi přemýšlivý hostitel. Milovali jsme to od okamžiku, kdy jsme vstoupili, ale ještě více, když nám přinesla čerstvé vejce a chléb. Skvělé místo pro klidné útočiště po Vánocích.

    Lucy2018-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Irmova kajuta byla zdaleka nejčistějším nejkrutějším BB, který jsme zůstali během měsíční návštěvy v Irsku. Tichá krajina úkryt, přesto však dost blízko k městu a okolním památkám. Přeji si, abych to dala 10 hvězdiček !! Vrátíme se...

    Jen2018-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Ach, dobro, co je skvělé místo k pobytu! Šestiúhelník byl útulný, teplý a klidný. Irma nás učil, jak používat uhelný krb a nechal nás s lahodnými vejci a chlebem. Cítíte se na samotě, ale jste blízko Westportu. Milovali jsme každou minutu z toho! Bylo by to naprosto zbytečné.

    Paige2018-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • Měli jsme krásný pobyt v Hexagon v prosinci. Požár byl rozsvícen, když jsme přijeli, a my jsme nemohli dostat nad tím, jak teplé a útulné místo bylo! Vejce a chléb při příjezdu je krásný dotek. Strávili jsme 3 noci s naším psem a užili krásné procházky v této oblasti. Já bych určitě doporučil jej pro páry, kteří hledají odpočinkovou pár dní pryč v zemi. Irma a její kamarádka Ruth, který nás potkal po příjezdu, byli velmi vstřícní a ochotní. A skvělé místo k pobytu!

  • Milovali jsme zde náš pobyt. Hotel je ohromující z vnějšku a uvnitř je útulný. Personál a vedení to řídí velmi komunálně s bezplatnými koláčky a Prosecco, které pomáhají spojit hosty v jednom prostoru a vytvořit skvělou atmosféru. Jednoho večera nás vyfotili na večeři a vytiskli jej jako dárek zdarma. Takové malé věci dělají vše a my jsme milovali atmosféru, kterou se snaží vytvořit ve svém prostoru. Poloha je ideální, pokud se snažíte pohybovat po různých částech Connemary. Jedinou malou stížností, kterou bych měl, je to, že sprcha, kterou jsme měli, nebyla vůbec silná a museli jsme použít hadici, která byla nepohodlná

    David2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Toto místo je neuvěřitelně zvláštní. Spousta osobní pozornosti. Toto místo nemůžu dostatečně chválit.

    Geoffrey2019-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • Rádi bychom zůstali déle na zámku. Všichni na nás byli velmi pozorní a skutečně vytvořili zážitek. Bylo to na krásném místě - trvá to 1 hodinu jízdy od města Galway, ale tak hezké a snové. Při večeři bylo šampaňské a sýr, čaj a slevy. Večeře byla super zábava a fantazie. Dokonce jsme dostali lekci historie před večeří v oblasti, která byla velmi poutavá. Vše, co chcete udělat, je v docházkové vzdálenosti nebo jízdy. Tolik zábavy na tomto hradě. Mějte na paměti, že cena závisí na osobě a je o něco dražší než na jiných místech. Je to však zážitek. Všichni byli úžasní.

    Erica2019-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • Jaké krásné místo! Zámek a pozemky jsou nádherné, jen kousek od města. Naše postel byla neuvěřitelně pohodlná a snídaně byla obrovská a velmi kvalitní bufet. S bezplatnou recepcí šampaňského se ozvalo několik příjemných doteků. Personál recepce byl obzvlášť milý. Náš pobyt jsme si opravdu užili!

  • Abbeyglen bylo krásné místo k pobytu a personál je krásný. Díky informacím, které nám poskytli naši hostitelé, jsme si udělali čas prozkoumat okolí. Já bych naprosto doporučil vzít si příležitost strávit noc v zámku!

Sanchia byla skvělá hostitelka, která odpověděla na všechny dotazy velmi rychle, a když se jí zeptali, zda bychom si měli zabalit žehličku nebo fén, odpověděla, že je nechá pro nás v chatě! Po příjezdu na nás čekaly 4 čerstvé koláčky, mysleli jsme si, že to byl krásný dotek! Krb a DVD přehrávač nahoře byly nádherné pro příjemné dny při sledování filmů, ještě jednou Sanchia, měli jsme krásný čas xx

  • Zůstali jsme tady a milovali jsme to. Šli jsme tam a zpět z Wicklowských hor, protože jsme chodili na náš třídenní pobyt. Pro nás to byla perfektní vzdálenost. Sanchia byla skvělá před a během našeho pobytu v chatě. Chata je krásná, s úžasným výhledem. Dorazili jsme k pečenému zboží s marmeládou a máslem - nemůžeme být o moc lepší! Sanchia byla také skvělá s doporučeními pro místa na místní, ale i dálkové cestě, navštívit / získat nějaké jídlo. Doporučil bych tuto chalupu každému, kdo chce zůstat v této oblasti, její krásná!

  • Sanchia místo bylo super pěkné! Měli jsme skvělý odpočinek na opravdu pěkném místě. Dokonce jsme dostali chutné koláčky a džemy. Rozhodně by tam zůstalo znovu!

    Jenny2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Milovali jsme náš pobyt, všechno bylo perfektní! Krásná lokalita v blízkosti přírody, krásné, prostory a čisté chaty s krbem a fantastickou pohostinností! Sanchia nám při příjezdu přinesla čerstvě upečené koláčky, což bylo krásné na dotek a byly výborné. Přejeme si, abychom mohli zůstat déle, ale určitě se vrátíme!

    "The Swallow's Nest" – A unique and thoughtfully renovated stone shed which accommodates up to two people and offers a completely peaceful and relaxing break in the hills of Donegal. Private entrance and secluded location. Available for single nights between two existing bookings. Please enquire.
    “The best place to sleep in Donegal." Eli Gothill The Swallow's Nest So named after the swallows which nested here year upon year until renovation work started in October 2014, this compact and tastefully renovated accommodation started life as a humble cow byre. It is approximately 200 years old, and stands apart from the main cottage with its own private driveway, entrance and deck. It overlooks a grassy meadow dotted with sheep. The unit consists of one central living space with kitchen area, simple furniture and a bathroom. The king size bed is up on a sleeping mezzanine which affords spectacular views over the meadow and hills beyond. Heating is from a wood-burning stove with small portable radiant heater for occasional use. The kitchen comprises a sink, gas hob, small electric oven and fridge. The Swallow's Nest is essentially for couples and offers a truly romantic and peaceful retreat - somewhere where you can literally ‘shed your life' and relax. It is unsuitable for children and infants because of several safety concerns, such as the height of the mezzanine. It comes with all linen, towels, basic toiletries, freshly baked scones and some cooking essentials. The basket of scones, butter and jam are a welcome gift and are not supplied on a daily basis, unless requested and for a small extra charge. A towel refresh/drying service is offered for those guests staying longer than a few days.
    I live in a secluded and private location with complete tranquility, yet am surrounded by very caring and helpful neighbours. This sort of sums up Donegal : peace where you want it and help when needed. Add to this the stunning coast line and mountains, walking opportunities and great wealth of traditional music, the pubs and their people and you have a place I call home. - a little slice of heaven.
  • Strávíme dvě nádherné noci v tomto malém hnízdě v Donegalu. Je to perfektní místo pro milovníky přírody, kteří se chtějí vzdálit od hluku a stresu velkých měst. Allay je klidná a milá hostitelka, která se ujistí, že v její malé chatě je vše, co postavila se svým partnerem. Při stavbě této chaty jsme viděli veškerou lásku, kterou vložili. Všechno bylo tak dokonalé, že nemáme co vysvětlit tuto zkušenost ... Díky moc za všechny: výlet v jižním Donegallu, který doporučujete, lahodné koláčky a dřevěný oheň, který zapálíte před naším příjezdem!

    Camille2019-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • Pokud chcete zůstat tam, kde je přírodní krása a pečlivě vyzdobené kouzlo chaty, zůstaňte zde. Ještě lepší je, když přinesete někoho dobrého na osvětlení kamna na dřevo!

    Beth2019-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • Velmi pěkné a krásné. Něco speciálního. (=

    Petra2019-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • Každou minutu v Allaye's Swallow's Nest bylo absolutní poklad. Jsme tak vděční, že jsme strávili dvě nádherné noci zastrčené v úbočí obklopené ohromujícími rostlinami a epickými výhledy. Nádherný krb, elegantní koupelna a útulná postel s nádherným výhledem jsou opravdu kouzelné. Vážili jsme si lahodných koláčků, které zůstaly pro náš příjezd, a měli jsme okamžité pohodlí od prvního okamžiku našeho příjezdu s tak snadnou kontrolou. To je drahokam, který stojí za návštěvu, a měl by být jedním z každého seznamu kbelíků. Děkuji Allaye za tento neuvěřitelný pobyt, díky kterému byla naše líbánky ještě zvláštnější.

    Jeannie2019-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • Wow!! Jaké úžasné místo, perfektní „typická“ irská chata. Allaye byl skvělý hostitel. Ona opustila koláčky a džem pro náš příchod spolu s věcmi, které mají dělat a vidět v okolí. Povídali jsme si s ní a Davidem a jsme velmi milí lidé. V chalupě jsme měli dvě nádherné noci, jen abychom si přáli, aby to mohlo být déle! Její návrh na večeři v Nancy's Pub byl dokonalý jak s jídlem, tak s atmosférou. Donegal byl jen 30 minut jízdy a stojí za to scénické jízdy s nádhernými obchody, restauracemi, hospodami a hudbou. Děkuji Allaye.

    Eric2019-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • Vlaštovka hnízdo byla daleko za naše očekávání a my jsme milovali každou sekundu tam. Od slova jít to bylo útulné a fantastické místo k pobytu, Allaye je skvělý hostitel a my se určitě vrátí! Doporučil bych toto místo každému, kdo půjde do Donegalu.

    Conor2019-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Vlaštovčí hnízdo je neuvěřitelné místo pro pár, kteří chtějí strávit den procházkou a večerem relaxovat u ohně s knihou. Allaye je úžasný hostitel a připravil skvělého průvodce na výlet, aby si vychutnal místní okolí a přírodu. Nelze doporučit více!

    Omar2019-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Pěkné, malebné, nepředvídatelné a pohodlné ubytování. Měli jsme klidný, útulný, dokonalý odpočinek od zbytku světa. Skořápky a džem při příjezdu byly krásným nádechem Vlašského hnízda. Děkuji. Amandu a Paddyho

  • Vše o našem pobytu jsme si opravdu užili. Pozoruhodná architektura, ohromující poloha na nábřeží, krásná příroda a vřelé přivítání. Při příjezdu nás při západu slunce přivítali tři bílí koně, díky nimž byl zážitek téměř magický. To byl náš nejlepší čas v Irsku - rádi bychom se vrátili.

    Richard2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Měli jsme nádherný pobyt v ohromující Folanově chalupě. Dům je architektonickým skvostem v kouzelném místě. Je velmi dobře vybaven a pohodlný. Simonova komunikace byla vynikající a celý proces byl velmi plynulý.

    Naomi2019-06-29T00:00:00Z
  • Simonův dům je nejkrásnějším místem, kde jsme kdy zůstali. Domov je ohromující, tak dokonale vytvořený a na magickém místě. Byli jsme tam s batoletem a on byl fascinován sledováním koní a ovcí z oken, hledáním mušlí na pláži a posloucháním deště, když zaútočilo. Město Roundstone je rozkošné a v okolí je mnoho krásných, zvláštních míst. To byl vrchol naší cesty do Irska a určitě se vrátíme!

    Katie2019-04-27T00:00:00Z
  • Simon má skvělé místo se vším, co jsme potřebovali pro náš první pobyt v Irsku. Pláž je nádherná s výhledem na hory za domem. Užili jsme si sledování ranních ranních koní přes pole. Dům je vzdálený, takže buďte připraveni jet do sousedních měst. Udělali jsme túru přes horu do Roundstonu, což bylo krásné, ale díky vlhkému týdnu jsme nakonec byli mnohem náročnější a blátivější. Rádi bychom se v létě vrátili!

    Kelly2019-03-23T00:00:00Z
  • Skvělá lokalita, stylová chata. Přestože to bylo v zimě, měli jsme krásný pobyt. Roundstone, Clifden a Errisbeg Hiking pro nás stačili, zbytek dne jsme zírali na moře ... nebo na poníky ... nebo na moře a poníky.

    Our cabin is warm and cosy. Enjoy the space, help yourself to veg from the garden, feed the farm animals, collect the eggs and explore all our area has to offer
    We are in the heart of the countryside but within walking distance of the town. The cabin is accessed via a raised walkway over the vegetable garden and nestled neatly under mature beech trees. The cabin is on our small farm which you are free to explore, experience and enjoy. The area is a slightly off the beaten track hidden gem. You could use your time here to explore Lough Key Forest Park, the town of Boyle, Boyle Abbey, King House and Drummanone Dolmen. You could visit the majestic Carrowkeel passage tombs and delve into the caves of Keash. Try walking around some of the lesser known lakes and woodlands e.g. Clontykilla woods and cycling a myriad of country lanes. See if you can catch some fish on the nearby Boyle river or Lough Gara. Spend your evenings snuggled in the cabin with some local literature or head to Boyle for something to eat and a few pints. For those wanting very lively nightlife Carrick on Shannon is 12 km away
    This is an area with hidden gems waiting to be discovered. We love our interactions with the animals, the peaceful lakes, rivers and hills and our friends and neighbours. A quiet pint in town with a good meal and chat is a simple pleasure. A rich historical tapestry from passage tombs to hidden abbeys to grand mansions continues to stimulate.
  • Unikátní a krásný pobyt v srdci irské krajiny. John nám dal tak skvělé tipy na místní oblast a jednoduchou túru, kterou jsme udělali příští den. Skvělá hodnota!

Jejich pes Flash je nejroztomilejší a nejpřátelštější a na naše tváře klade obrovský úsměv! Díky moc za to, že jste nás! (Jděte do baru creightons ve městě, nebudete toho litovat)

  • jeho první použití Airbnb a byl to skvělý zážitek. Místo je přesně jako na obrázcích, velmi teplé a útulné. John a jeho rodina jsou tak milí a příjemní, když jsme dorazili, měli pro nás dokonce vdolky, což jsme považovali za velmi sladký dotek. Dokonce jsme tam měli bbq, byla to opravdu jedna z nejlepších nocí v Irsku. Registrace a odhlášení jsou velmi snadné a pohodlné. Opravdu nemám co špatně říct, byli jsme tam čtyři přátelé a všichni jsme to milovali. Určitě tu zůstane znovu.

Máme mnoho skvělých místních tipů, takže byste měli nejlépe ušetřit čas na prohlídku některých místních míst, když jste tam. Bylo by skvělé mít možnost zůstat o něco déle než jednu noc. Vrátili bychom se znovu.

John a jeho rodina byli dokonalí hostitelé, což mému malému chlapci umožňovalo toulat se a hrát si se svou mladou rodinou. Kabina byla dokonalým a tichým útěkem z našich rušných životů. Moje žena milovala koláčky! Těšíme se na návrat.

    Back to nature in this tranquil little wooden building, beautiful antique windows reveal a gentle vista of rolling hills and open skies. It's Ireland's answer to glamping, (with a solid roof over your head ;) ) yet the feeling of being out in nature.
    This is a glamping experience, it is a warm, dry, insulated wooden cabin with a comfortable bed and lovely views. Be prepared to wander through the garden to kitchen and w.c. Umbrella and torch provided. Wifi available in the kitchen cabin, not in the Cosy Cabin itself. Experience the exquisite night-time quiet of the countryside, awaken to the soothing cooing of woodpigeons and the country sounds of rooster 'Jenkins' and his flock of happy hens. Lounge in the garden as Red Kites soar overhead and, in season, snack on organic produce, especially our sweet organic grapes from the polytunnel. Look up at the milkyway sketched across the night sky and inhale sweet clean air. The cabin accommodates 2 people, it has its own solar power supply, its south-east facing big windows provide beautiful views of the surroundings. The bed is a comfortable double and there's a fold out table and chairs and an outdoor picnic table. BREAKFAST: A basket of breakfast goodies will be provided for you to dine at your leisure. A 30 meter stroll through the garden brings you to the kitchen and a wc/shower room which are housed in a separate cabin. You are welcome to cook in the communal kitchen and make teas and coffee (provided) whenever you please. The kitchen has a small fridge, two hot plates and pots and pans. You'll be sharing the kitchen with other guests, you also have the option to eat in your cabin or at your private picnic table. We have a garden Chimenea and you are welcome to light a fire there. But we ask you to bring your own fuel, a bag of logs or bale of briquettes and fire-lighters.
    "There is not in this wide world a valley so sweet" Stroll from the house to the beautiful Avondale Arboretum with the Avonmore river flowing down from the Wicklow National Park to the Meeting-of-the-Waters made famous by Thomas Moore's song. A twenty minute drive will bring you to the golden sands of Brittas bay or the stunning beauty of Glendalough. Rathdrum nestles in the heart of the Wicklow Mountains and offers direct access to all the beauty "The Garden of Ireland" has to offer. The Wicklow Way & Lugnaquilla mountain are some of the nearby hiking highlights. The Clara Lara Funpark and Greenane Maze and Farm Museum are great for kids. And not to forget the beautiful Avondale Forest Park just a 15min walk from your cabin, the riverwalk there is simply stunning. Have a look at our other listing so you can book for a whole family.
  • Opravdu jsem si užil svůj 2 noční pobyt v Edwin & Fiona's. Protože to bylo moje první sólo cestování, bylo pro mě důležité, abych se cítil v bezpečí a doma. V útulné kabině jsem to cítil! Skoro jsem nechtěl odejít, bylo to tak útulné! Edwin & Fiona si připravila krásnou snídani, aby se těšila - opravdu jsem milovala vaření čerstvých vajec a užívat si rajčat na toastu. Pro Glendalougha to byla jen krátká cesta na pěknou túru. I když počasí na dlouhou cestu nedovolilo, nevadilo mi vrátit se do útulné kabiny a relaxovat v klidu a klidu.

  • Toto místo je obklopeno krásou a rostlinami. Útulná kabina je skvělým místem pro pohled na hvězdy a mazlení. Doufám, že se zase vrátím!

  • Toto místo je velmi hezké a velmi roztomilé! Krásné doteky v domácích obrazech, přátelských kuřatech a chutné snídani! Vřele doporučuji

  • Milí, milí lidé! Fiona je skvělý umělec a jejich prostor je velmi klidný. Jejich snídaně je promyšlená a perfektní!

    Monica2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • Skvělý pobyt v kabině Edwina a Fiony. Skvělá pohostinnost a umístění a super snídaně v dopoledních hodinách, které bychom mohli připravit sami. Velmi doporučuji.

    Niall2019-03-23T00:00:00Z
  • Skvělá zkušenost.

    Philipp2019-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • Pobyt v kabině Tiny byl úžasný. Je to tak kuriózní v krásném, vzdáleném místě. Milovali jsme čerstvé potraviny a vejce k snídani a měli skvělý začátek dne, kdy jsme jedli venku u kuřat. Byli nám poskytnuty tipy na krásné místní turistické stezky, které byly jen asi 5 minut. Rozhodně doporučujeme toto místo!

  • Jedná se o velmi krásnou a útulnou chalupu s pěkným výhledem na Atlantik. Velmi čistá, klidná a ohromující krajina ... Laraine nás vřele vítá a spoustu informací, co můžeme udělat ... Chata je asi 10 minut od Castletownbere. Rádi bychom tam zůstali ...

    Isabella2019-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • Cítili jsme se zde velmi pohodlně ... Trochu mimo Castletownbere chalupa s nádherným výhledem, skvělá lokalita, s velmi dobrým vybavením a skvělým základem pro pěší turistiku ... můžeme jen doporučit chalupu

    Georg2019-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • Pěkně umístěná čtvrť mimo město. Díky tomu je velmi tichý. Hostitelé byli super milí a milující. Na uvítanou byl čerstvý chléb, vejce máslo a lahodný pomerančový džem. Výhled na vodu a krajinu byl nádherný. Vrátíme se!

    Brigitte2019-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • Tato krásná chata měla vše, co jsme potřebovali pro náš krátkodobý pobyt, včetně velké sbírky užitečných cestovních brožur a průvodců, co dělat a vidět v regionu. Dokonale čistý, velmi pohodlný a úžasný výhled.

    Emma2019-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • Krásná chata na poloostrově Beara. Ideální pro návštěvu jihozápadu. Velmi vřelé přivítání od Laraine. Skvělý výhled z domu na Bantry Bay. Oblast není navštěvována turisty, což přispívá k jejímu kouzlu. Očekávejte však významné doby přepravy na návštěvu ostatních poloostrovů.

    Remi2019-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • Chata Four Directions Cottage je skvělým útěkem pro všechny cestovatele, kteří chtějí trávit čas v této oblasti. Názory jsou dechberoucí a hostitelé jsou velmi dobře informovaní a reagují s check-in a tipy pro navigaci v oblasti. Doporučil bych ostatním, a pokud dostanu příležitost, ráda bych se v budoucnu někdy vrátila.

    Claiborne2019-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • Laraine a Mick byli skvělí hostitelé a v jejich láskyplně zrenovované chalupě jsme se cítili naprosto pohodlně. Postel byla super pohodlná (i když s mým 1,85 byla příliš krátká), výzdoba byla skvělá, vše, co jsme tam potřebovali, bylo - a je to jen co by kamenem dohodil s Castletownbere. Po dobrodružství na ohromujícím poloostrově Beara a relaxaci v zahradě bylo vždy potěšením vrátit se do chaty. Dalším vrcholem bylo mnoho ovcí na sousedních loukách. Úplné doporučení!

    Alexandra2019-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • Jako rodina s mladým dítětem byla chata pro nás tím nejlepším místem. Chalupa měla všechno, co jsme mohli potřebovat, a Laraine byla fantastická hostitelka. Vřele doporučuji toto místo a doufáme, že se v budoucnu vrátíme.
