About the Property

We have called this apartment The James Joyce after the famous Irish novelist.

A recently refurbished apartment that sleeps 6 comfortably ideally situated close to Temple Bar in the city centre as well as the Phoenix Park and Botanic Gardens.

This apartment has been lovingly restored to a very high degree while retaining a lot of the original features to provide a classic and extremely luxurious stay. This is a luxury apartment with all the comforts of home.
Within easy reach of all the fabulous restaurants, Temple Bar, museums, parks, Trinity College and Library, Farmleigh House and of course shopping that Dublin has to offer.
Easy walk to numerous bus stops and train stations that will connect you with the Luas which will connect you with all of Dublin. There are also a number of great restaurants and pubs within a 10 minute walk from the apartment which we can highly recommend. A local pub just 10 minutes walk away provides traditional Irish music for your entertainment and is a great night out.

We provide a welcome pack with the basics such as bread and milk etc to get you on your feet.

There is a major supermarket within a 5 minute walk so you will never run out of essentials. All mod cons are provided and there is linen and towels freshly laundered for your use.

The apartment is in a beautiful large red brick Victorian building on a tree lined street. There is one large bedroom with 2 double beds and in the living room there is a leather pull down sofa that makes another double bed.

There is a fully equipped kitchen and dining area that will cater for 6 and the bathroom is spacious and modern. There is fridge with a small ice box, microwave, dishwasher and washer dryer so that anyone considering an extended stay can enjoy all the comforts of home. A cot can be provided upon request.

For anyone considering exploring Ireland further there is a car hire company close by and Heuston Station is approx 15-20 minute walk.

The famous Guinness Storehouse is close at hand as well as the Jameson Distillery both of which run tours regularly and are worth a visit. Dublin is also renowned for it's famous Temple bar area for entertainment which is a bus ride away. For art lovers the Irish Museum of Modern Art is 15 minutes away and the National Museum of Ireland is 10 minutes away.
Trinity College, Kilmainham Gaol, Ryan's Victorian Pub, St. Patricks Cathedral, are just some other of the many wonderful attractions that are available.

Car: Not Necessary

A great place to stay with easy access to the city centre in just 10 minutes by bus.

There is a regular bus service that runs right by the front door and there is the light rail system which is a great way to see Dublin in its entirety.

There is a major supermarket just 3 minutes walk away as well as a pharmacy, bakery, butchers, medical centre and a laundromat for guests that need this facility.

There are cafes, pubs and restaurants all within easy walking distance (max 10 minutes) and one pub in particular plays traditional Irish music nightly and has to be visited during your stay. It's an old Irish pub and people gather nightly to play here. Not to be missed!

There are also excellent restaurants so if you don't want to cook you could pop into L. Mulligan's Bistro (check out the review it got in the NY Times), Plan B, Cucina, My Thai and various cafes for that all important cup of coffee and chat.

We have eaten in all of these establishments and we couldn't fault any of them so rest assured that you won't be disappointed.

If you plan on eating in the city then it's only a short bus ride or walk to find a wealth of restaurants and places to eat that will take your breath away. The quality and standard of food in Dublin not to mention the variety is second to none so there really is something for everyone.

There are also some takeaways nearby so if you don't want to cook or if you don't want to venture out this is an option also.

Following is a list of the some of the sights you would enjoy in Dublin.

All are within easy reach of our property and while there are many more than listed here we thought we would give you some to start with.

Top 10 sights close to our apartment

1. Phoenix Park - Europe's largest urban park and houses Dublin Zoo is just a 10 minute walk

2. Guinness Storehouse - 20 minutes

3. Trinity College - Houses the famous and beautiful Book of Kells is only 10 minutes by bus

8. National Museum of Ireland - 15 minutes by bus

9. Kilmainham Gaol - 15 minutes by bus

These are only some of the wonderful sights that are on our doorstep.

Each apartment has information on the fantastic things to do and see while in Dublin and of course we are happy to recommend other things to see and do while you are here.

Excellant tourist offices are also dotted throughout the city which can provide information on day trips, tours and other excursions that might be of interest.

Finally we want to assure you that we take great pride in our house and our apartments. We are committed to providing a quality stay and I have personally restored the apartments myself over the last 5 years.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: I come from a family background in the hospitality industry. Having lived in New York for a number of years, I returned in 1990 and purchased this property in Dublin City. I have recently returned to the hospitality industry and ensuring my guests have a comfortable and enjoyable stay in my apartment is a priority for me. I'm available 24/7 for my guests and aim to provide every comfort during their stay.

Why the Owner Chose Cabra East, Dublin, Ireland:
I chose this location for the proximity to the city centre and of course the beautiful Victorian Redbrick lined North Circular Road.These properties are a feature of Dublin and are preserved by Dublin Council. The fact that the Phoenix Park and the Botanic gardens are within walking distances is an absolute plus, providing plenty of recreational activity. Numerous pubs, restaurants are within walking distance and I feel that the house provides a sense of character and charm not matched by modern buildings and houses.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
There are a number of benefits to staying in this property. Located close to the heart of the city of Dublin there is an excellant transport system by bus and light rail that means all of the sights can be visited with the minimum of fuss. The building itself is a beautiful Victorian property that has unique charm while offering all the modern comforts that a guest could expect. The location is ideal as it is quiet while being convenient to all shopping, sights, transport, museums etc. that makes a holiday. Located beside the Phoenix park which is Europe's largest urban park the traveller can have a taste of the country while still remaining in the city. There truly is something for everyone.
