Property description

We live in Florida, this is our Dublin home. We visit it for about 8 weeks per year. It is a superb, hard to beat, location for walking to every major attraction in central Dublin. The flat building is located on the river Liffey a block from O'Connell Street. We overlook the well maintained inner courtyard of the flat building and the Dublin rooftops.

The flat is a penthouse and, due to its location within the building, is extremely quiet and cosy. We have (December 2011) completely renovated the flat which was built in 1994. It is, effectively, new as of Deceber 2011. It has 2 good size bedrooms. The master bedroom has an extemely comfortable USA king size bed with ample wardrobe and drawer space. The master bathroom has a spacious pumped shower. The second bedroom has two large very comfortable single beds and ample wardrobe space. The second bathroom has a bathtub/electric shower combination. The large living room has a 42” LED flat screen TV, a large comfortable sofa and an additional chair. There is a workdesk for laptop use. The dining area, with its leather chairs, easily accommodates 5 people. The kitchen is small but fully equiped to serve 6 people. It has induction, very fast heating, burners, a self clean oven and a powerful extraction fan. There is a large frost free refridgerator and a Bosch dishwasher. The kitchen also contains a Miele washer and dryer.

There is free, fast cable internet service (connection via both cable and wi fi to your laptop). Cable TV delivers about 80 channels, many of which are international. The phone sevice offers free calling to landlines in many overseas countries and in Ireland.

The 'fifth' person is accommodated via a blowup bed in the living room.

The flat is located on the top, fourth, floor (fifth by North American definition) of the building. There is a lift, access to which is by key only. There is an intercom service from the flat to the front door allowing for remote door opening.

The Luas (tram) service is a one block walk and within the same distance there are numerous restaurants offering a variety of cuisines. Within a 10 minute walk are Trinty College (home of the book of Kells), Grafton Street (shopping), Temple Bar (pubs) and the GPO (scene of the 1916 uprising). A 15 minute walk will get you to the Garden of Rembrance, St Stephens Green, Dublin Castle, St Patricks Cathedral and Christchurch Cathedral. The river Liffey with its boat cruises is at your front door.

Within the flat building (on the ground floor) are numerous shops, including a hair salon, a supermarket and several eating places. Within a block there are large Tesco and Marks and Spencers supermarkets and the Jervis centre shopping mall.

If you plan on renting a car to see the countryside (you do NOT want one in Dublin), please ask us for our recommendations.

If our flat is of interest, please check our calendar for availability. If the first or last day of your visit period is unavailable, we have an arrangement with a local hotel to accommodate you for this night, possibly at no additional cost.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We travel a lot and have found having our 'own place' to stay in is really nice. In addition to our base in Florida, we have homes in London and Sydney. Adding Dublin to the list, with an Irish wife, was a no brainer.

Why the Owner Chose Dublin:
We wanted a place in downtown Dublin where we can walk to everything. The flat location is ideal (check it out on the map). The flat itself is in a great location within the building. We decided to spend 3+ months of our lives converting the flat into a 2 bed 2 bath unit and completely refurbishing the place. Only the doors, windows and walls remain from its prior existence. With an Irish wife, she now has a place back in her own country and this allows her to visit with her relatives and friends.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
In a word, Dublin. It is a compact city and almost everything we need to do, to buy and to see is within a 15 minute walk.
