2 bedrooms, sleeps 3, extra single blow-up mattress in loft space. Ask owner
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.

About Sean Moffatt
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 Sean Moffatt chose Wood Quay
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!
What makes this Cottage unique
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!!!

A perfect base to explore Dublin.
Moffatt Cottage is compact and cosy and within very easy walking distance of all the sights of Dublin. There's so much to see and do - we couldn't possibly do it all in a four day break so looking forward to a return visit and will have no hesitation in booking Moffatt Cottage again.
Lovely Lovely Lovely!!!
We thoroughly enjoyed every minute in Moffatt Cottage! It had everything we wanted for our family to be comfortable for the week (kitchen, laundry, even a private garden), but we also found the decor to be absolutely charming! It is perfectly located on a quiet street that is within walking distance of two cathedrals, Dublin Castle, Trinity College, Grafton Street, Guiness Storehouse and more. Sean was absolutely wonderful, even making sure we had tea/coffee and milk waiting for us! We cannot say enough good things about Moffatt Cottage!!!
Beautiful cottage, so cosy and clean, and very close to center.
Perfect stay at Sean's place. We were three and it was more than welcoming and perfect for our 4 nights stay. The cottage is very well located, in a very calm neighborhood, and about 10/15 min walk to the center. We really enjoyed our weekend and I would definitely recommend this cottage, and I'll sure book it again when I'll go back in Dublin. Sean was so nice and welcoming, very easy to communicate with and very attentive.
Thank you for allowing me to stay in your wonderful cottage. Everything was perfect! The location was ideal for hopping around the city and for watching the St. Patrick's Day Parade. It seemed as though everything was just around the corner. Sean was very attentive and checked in before, during and after my stay. When I am in Dublin again, I will be sure to check the availability of the Moffatt cottage and hopefully reserve it once more.
Perfect, ideally located and really comfortable little traditional 120 year old cottage.
Loved everything about staying here. Will be back again soon... especially since I'm the owner!
