About our home

My house was built in 1905 in the urban village of Stoneybatter. The house has been modernised while retaining the original period features where possible.

Stoneybatter is just across the river from the heart of historical Dublin, where traces remain of Viking, Norman, and medieval settlements. The neighbourhood has a very friendly vibe, with lots of trendy coffee shops nearby. While it could not be described as a leafy suburb, Stoneybatter is within walking distance of the Phoenix Park, the biggest city park in Europe. It is well served by buses, the Luas (local tram) and the Dublinbikes scheme, and is 25 mins walking distance from Temple Bar, maybe ten minutes more from Grafton Street.

A small patio at the back serves as a garden on sunny afternoons.

Where is it?


Stoneybatter recently made the list of the 'coolest neighbourhoods in the world', placed 50th. It is often described as Dublin's urban village, managing to maintain the atmosphere of a village in spite of being so close to Dublin city centre. The houses are small, but very snug and quaint.

Buzzy restaurants
Grano, Ramen Kitchen, Fish <>,
Cool bars
Mulligan's, Walshes, The Belfry
Cozy cafés
Lilliput, Slice, Third Space
Retail therapy
Apart from delicatessens, you need to head into the city centre for this
Bit of culture
National Museum of Ireland, Decorative Arts, is at the bottom of the street, Guinness Brewery is a stroll away on the other side of the river, most of Dublin's touist attractions are not too far away
Walks in the park
The nearby Phoenix Park is almost 5 square kilometres. It's a good place to go for a walk, get close up to the wild deer, view the president's house, maybe visit the zoo
Spot of exercise
Phoenix Park is a good place to go for a run, you can also rent a bike to cycle in the park. For yoga there is a centre of excellence called The Elbow Room a few minutes walk from the house, where drop in classes are available. Dublin City Council has a system where bikes can be rented for the weekend at a small cost, for use within the city centre
Day tripping
Suburban coastal villages like Howth, Malahide, Clontarf are less than an hour away and are easily accessible by public transport
