Property description

Large, bright, Victorian townhouse set on banks of the River Liffey with beautiful views of James Joyce Bridge in heart of historical Chapelizod Village, and nestled on doorstep of world famous Pheonix Park. (Largest enclosed park in Europe with wild Fallow Deer, also houses Dublin Zoo).
Direct 15 min drive from Dublin Airport. Access to City Centre via numerous bus routes which pass through village, or take the scenic walk along the Liffey, through many Joycean landmarks (40 mins walk) to Guinness Brewery and Storehouse. Take in visits to National Museum of Ireland and National Museum of Modern Art, Kilmainham (30 mins walk).
Or relax in the historical, Victorian Mullingar House, made famous in Joyce’s Ulysses and enjoy a typical, heavenly Dublin afternoon with locals and a fresh pint of Guinness.
2 exclusive reserved parking bays adjacent to side entrance of house. Easy access to M50 arterial route to many of South County Dublin tourist attractions – Glendalough, Dublin Mountains, seafront towns of Bray and Greystones (50 mins drive).
Chapelizod is a small, quiet village nestled in the Liffey Valley, it is bypassed by a motorway on one side and bordered by the Phoenix Park on the other. It has unique access to the green belt that is the Liffey Valley and the famous 'Strawberry Beds' which feature one of Dublin’s finest fish restaurants – the Angler’s Rest (15 mins walk) and also 3 world class Golf Courses – Castleknock Hotel and Golf Club, Luttrelstown Castle Golf Club and Hermitage Golf Club (10 mins drive)
Chapelizod is proud of being the first settlement upriver of Dublin City, which was established in 988AD. It is more in keeping with quiet country life than the bustle of Dublin City life, yet its close proximity gives it its unique ambience.
Enter our house, the first of a red-brick, Victorian terrace of 11 houses (built by Lord Clayton, for his officers in 1899) from the imposing granite steps and arched porchway to the grand hallway on the ground floor. From here, restored, authentic period livingrooms lead into a conservatory and sun-trapped courtyard garden, via French doors. Vintage cast-iron garden furniture is found here, to come home to after a day’s sight-seeing. Relax with a glass of wine in the evenings, or have a luxurious soak in the spectacularly and lovingly renovated loft, in our free-standing cast-iron bath retreat (of spa standard).
A country kitchen is located at end of grand hallway, with artisan-crafted oak kitchen table, traditional Irish dresser, hand-made by owner’s father and standard kitchen amenities – fridge-freezer, cooker, dishwasher, microwave, washing-machine, drier and WC.
Our period staircase leads to the mezzanine floor, where the first bedroom (queen) is found. The first floor houses 3 more bedrooms, 1 king-size with ensuite & shower, one double-twin, and one with twin bunks.
A further mezzanine level with bijou office leads to loft conversion with bath / shower / WC.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: We have been living in and renovating this adored, period residence since 1995. We have enjoyed vacationing in Cape Ann, Massachusetts for the last nine summers and have been making our precious home available for rental for the last few summers. We hope you love our home as much as we do!

Why the Owner Chose Dublin:
This house has the perfect location for drivers and users of public transport. The city and the arterial routes to the rest of the country are all close at hand. If you choose to use the bus, we leave a 'Leap' card for our guests - it's like a pre-paid credit card for the bus system. Top it up at almost any store, then use it to pay for your bus rides, at the lowest available rates. No need for tickets or bus passes or having pockets full of coins.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Transport links, Phoenix Park, Village atmosphere, Period design, Excellent media, WiFi & connectivity.
