Dublin cottage description

Staying in this genuine one hundred year old red-brick artisan cottage in this tiny, quiet, hidden square is in itself a rare and extra-special treat. Bright and airy by day, cozy and warm by the stove at night, your own private south-facing patio to the rear to sit out on, a bright modern galley kitchen and bathroom. But its location cannot be bettered with literally all that Dublin has to offer the visitor there within a few minutes walking distance of your doorstep.


Checking in and out: On your arrival the owners of the cottage will make you feel more than welcome, giving you a good idea of how close you are to all the major sights, good places to eat and shop, tips on how to make the best of your time, what's on music-wise, in theaters, at galleries or book readings. We can even give you knowledgeable advice/assistance if you are interested in your Irish family history!

Whenever it is possible we like to let our guests arrive on their first day as early as they like and leave on their last day at the time that suits them best in relation to their flights etc. Unfortunately, when there is an overlap with guests arriving and departing on the same day this may not be possible and the check-in time would have to be between 1.30 and 2.00, while check-out time would have to be by mid-day. This is to allow us time to to prepare the cottage. Do check with us in advance of your arrival just to be sure.

The Perfect Base: Forget about the car. Not only are the city sights on your doorstep but for a few Euro you can access all along the beautiful Dublin coast as far as Wicklow by the Dart (Electric train), from the city station just ten minutes away. From Heuston Station (five minutes away by taxi) you can even travel on one or two-day trips train trips to Galway (3 hours, 34 Euro return trip) and get to see the Arran Islands, the Cliffs of Moher or even the Ring of Kerry, and lots more. Glendalough in Wicklow can be reached by a coach from a nearby bus stop (one and a half hours, about 15 Euro return), Newgrange from the Central bus station.

If having Internet access is Important to you...: The cottage does not have an internet connection but some of our guests have managed by purchasing a 'Dongle' which allows you to have full access to the internet on your lap-top anywhere. Recent prices people tell us they have paid were 49Euro for the Dongle and seemingly it is just 10 Euro a week, you can activate your system through the '3' provider here in Dublin. You might want to check this out before-hand if you are interested.

But there is one internet cafe just 2 minutes from the cottage, and charges just 2 Euro an hour.
