Dublin house 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.

                This was a great house for an extended family vacation. It is close to a bus line, and not near the hustle and bustle of downtown. We were easily able to take the bus to downtown to see the sights and shop. That saved on parking and driving in Dublin traffic! Everything we needed was provided or at a grocery store nearby.

                Recommended for: Sightseeing, tourists without a car.

                Owner response: We're delighted you enjoyed your stay. Sorry I didn't have the chance to meet you in person. The bus system really does make it easy for guests who don't wish to rent a car. We use it all the time too. Look us up if you plan to return to Dublin!

                We were a group of six ladies. This home was perfect. Everyone enjoyed the hospitable atmosphere of staying in such a lovely home. The house was roomy and everyone had lots of personal space. Having sinks in most of the bedrooms was not only a fun quirky feature for us but it made it very easy for everyone to get ready and out of the house in the morning. The large kitchen and two large sitting areas that opened on to each other made it very comfortable for us to lounge in and share "war stories" from the days/nights activities. It was only a short bus ride and an even shorter cab ride (never more than 12 Euro's) to the centre of Dublin. Was never a problem even coming home in the wee hours of the morning from the Dublin Pubs. Would recommend this especially to a small group or couples. Peter was an awesome host and it was an effortless rental.

                Recommended for: Families with teenagers, romantic getaway, families with young children, girls getaway, tourists without a car.

                Owner response: Thank you for such lovely words. It warms our hearts when guests have such a great experience. You know where to find us if you're ever back in Dublin!

                The only item I was dissatisfied about was the ability to properly access the home upone arrival but that was cleared up. Everything else was superb and I would recommend this home.

                Owner response: I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. I don't know why the key-box malfunctioned on the day, but as I understand it, our cleaner let you in with no delay. I've since rectified the key-box issue, and thank you for your feedback on that.

                This beautiful home was perfect for our needs. 5 adults and 2 kids. The house was so well equipped there was nothing we needed that was not available. The house was so big we never felt like we were on top of each other. Nice little market within a short walking distance. Ate a a nice Pub also a short walk away. We decided to taxi into city center because of the small boys and I believe the van was only about 12€. The house was spotless,charming and a great place for a large family. Would recommend it in a heartbeat.

                Owner response: So thrilled that you enjoyed your stay and that the kids got to visit their favorite museums and local attractions. Sorry I couldn't meet with you, but I was busy tending to my little ones on the other side of the Atlantic.

                This was a perfect house for us. We had a few couples stay with us and we loved the quaint area. It was close to a bus stop to travel into Dublin and return and relax. We had everything we needed to make a home away from home...we liked it so well we stayed 3 weeks. It was a good stop to travel to all Ireland destinations.

                We rented this 3 story home for a week about an 8 minute busride from the house(The River Liffey across the street) into central Dublin. A very comfortable house with a double living room on the first floor with a big screen TV ( which we enjoyed at night after rigorous tourism!) white furniture with lots of pillows. Kitchen very nice with all appliances( Owners left us a lovely basket of fruit, bread and milk...very thoughtful) . We each had our own bedroom with one to spare. Unsually the bathroom (main) was at the top of 3 storied hosue, but a big bath. Another very tiny bath on the 2nd floor...We had a wonderful time!

                Our family of four spent four wonderful days in this well appointed home. With two teenage daughters, it was great to have the extra space. Beautiful family home in a great neighborhood that gave us Americans a chance to really live like locals. The owner Peter was a pleasure to work with, VERY responsive, and prompt with return of deposit check. We hope you have the chance to stay in this wonderful home as it was the PERFECT place to end of 15 day holiday in Scotland & Ireland. Cheers!

                Tucked in the village yet a short bus ride away from Dublin City Centre, this location provided our family of six the ideal retreat as we spent the week exploring the rich history and varied culture of Dublin and the surrounding area. This residence provided old world charm with all al of todays conveniences. The three levels provided lots of room for privacy, while also having open areas courtyard, sunroom etc. where everyone could gather. No matter what part of the ciy we were trying to get to the public transportation from the house what reliable and timely. The host family provided that trademark irish hospitality and were attentive to our particular needs. They provided clean comfortable ammenities which freed us to explore the museum, parks, historic sites with peace of mind, knowing we would be returning home after a long day to comfortable safe surroundings.

Great place to stay in a great neighbourhood close to transportation and easy to drive to and from. Nearby Mullingar House Pub was great place to eat with superb chef.
