About our home

Our Home
Our house is newly renovated warm and cosy with character in the trendy and historic Dublin neighbourhood of Stoneybatter.
On the ground floor, we have a spacious, but cosy living/dining room with a fire place, a comprehensive bookshelf and games, a separate bright and sunny kitchen with access to a little patio. The upper floor contains a very spacious bathroom with a comfortable bath tub, a double bed room and an office with double futon.
The house is decorated with a mix of comfortable modern furniture and items collected at our trips abroad.
We have two great bikes (gents and ladies), which you can use to explore Dublin and surroundings.

Living like in the quiet and green suburbs right in the middle of town... Our house is located in the historic Dublin neighbourhood of Stoneybatter, location of many film settings (e.g. Michael Collins (1996) or Angela's Ashes (1999)). Although we are right in the city our neighbourhood is very cosy and quiet with lovely neighbours. We have nice little shops, pubs, a community garden, a museum, great yoga places, historic sites, a cinema, cafes and restaurants (one of the best restaurants Dublin's!) at our doorstep (max. 5 min. walk).
Stoneybatter is an area of many contrasts, with a deeply-rooted Dublin working-class tradition living side-by-side with a more affluent group of artists and writers and a more recent influx of younger people as well as European, Asian and African immigrants attracted by the "Tiger economy", all adding colour and atmosphere to an area which has a colourful past and an exciting present. Apart from the striking artisan dwellings, the area is also known for the prominent Viking street names.
We are well connected to public transport (both bus and tram) and Dublin's beaches and mountains are not far and invite for swimming, hiking etc.
