“The house is very big and very comfortable, and all the great pictures of Tao give to the place a charming behavior. The fireplace at sitting room is fantastic at winter. And the little garden has to be fantastic too at summer. Although the home is not in the center, with the luas (the Dublin's tram) you arrive to there in just 10 minutes. And they let us too their bicycles to go around and we enjoyed it a lot. Gerard, Tao, Ming and his two lovely cats, are a nice family, and we have been very very nice to meet them.”

Where is it?
The house is well located for exploring Dublin. Although close to the centre, it is in a nice quiet residential road, south west of the centre, approx 20 mins ride by LUAS (Dublin's tram system) or bus. The LUAS and bus-stops are very convenient, within 4 mins walk from the house. A Dublin bikes station (Dublin's bike rental scheme: http://www.dublinbikes.ie) is just 2 mins walk. Or, if you are feeling energetic, its approx 30 mins walk to the central areas; Grafton Street shopping area, Trinity College and St Stephens Green; the cultural quarter with the National Gallery, Natural History Museum, Science Museum, Dail Eireann (the Parliament Buildings)etc etc and nearby, the bar and restaurant and entertainment area of Temple Bar.
Some of Dublin's famous attractions and beautiful walks in the immediate environs of the house. IMMA, the Irish Museum of Modern Art, set in beautiful gardens, Kilmainham Jail(formerly a prison, now restored as a museum and the Guinness Brewery Museum, also known as the 'Guinness Store House', are all within easy walking distance. We also have some beautiful walks and parks nearby; along the banks of the river Liffey at Memorial Park (10 mins away), along the Grand Union Canal (3 mins away) and in the Phoenix Park (20 Mins), Dublin’s largest park where you can walk for miles through beautiful parkland, wooded areas with a lake and playing fields; you can see up close its herds of wild deer and antelope and its also home to Dublin's Zoo.
