About our home

Our home is in a mature suburb of Dublin very close to the city centre. It was built in the 1930s and completely renovated and luxuriously finished in 2002. The house is a two storey semi-detached end house, but the attic has also now been converted into a beautiful study. The total size is 2, 200 square feet.
Downstairs, there are two reception rooms with double sliding doors which can be used as one large room, a kitchen, dining room, utility room and bathroom.
Upstairs there are two double bedrooms (master bedroom is ensuite) and two single rooms. A family bathroom (bath and shower) completes the rooms. On the upper level the attic has been converted to a handsome study which is also used as Isabel's private office.
The house has all the appliances/technology you would expect including TV, VCR, DVD, high speed broadband connection and a stereo linked to speakers throughout downstairs.

There is gas central heating throughout the house. In addition, there is a fireplace in the main sitting room which you might light for effect – usually you would not need it for heat in the summer. There is a sunny backgarden complete with gravelled sitting area, patio, lawn and bar-b-q.

Basically, this is a very warm and comfortable fully modernized home which has everything you would need for a very enjoyable stay.

Dublin city centre can be reached within 15 minutes by taking a 5-10 minute tram ride which stops 5 minutes walk from our house.
