Property 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 (and within reason) 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 10am. 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.

The cottage does have internet.

Owner info

About the owner: We've been involved fulltime in the arts for most of our lives. The idea of renting the cottage was suggested to us by some friends, which seemed mad at the time (before Air B&B!) but we haven't looked back since. Guests just seem to take to the cottage immediately (as the reviews will testify) which is very satisfying. Long may it continue!

Why the Owner Chose Merchants Quay, Dublin, Ireland:
For it's location and it's charm, it's that simple. Oh... and for being able to hear birdsong in the morning despite the fact that you are in a busy city!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The cottage is so close to the center of things and yet you are in a tiny, quiet, residential square, cut off from all that traffic and everyday business, a landscaped garden to one side, potted plants to the other, a high old wall, that runs along the line of the old city walls, climbing roses covering it in late spring and early summer... all this and the fact of it being a 'Cottage' not an apartment, but a real house, over one hundred and twenty years old, a piece of history in itself!!!
