About our home

Our house is spread over 3 floors. On the ground floor, there is a double bedroom, a bathroom, an office, a playroom/4th bedroom and a utility room. There is a sunny, sheltered terrace off the playroom, which is lovely to eat lunch at. There is a fridge and kettle in the utility room, handy for making coffee or keeping drinks in easy access of the garden. There is a door from the utility room into the garden.

The middle floor is an open-plan living, dining, kitchen. It is very bright and airy, as it has large windows/sliding doors on 3 sides. There is a terrace off the dining area, which gets sun from 3pm - 8pm. We often eat dinner out there during the summer. The terrace looks directly out onto a beautiful, old chestnut tree, which provides lots of birdsong.

On the top floor, there is 1 double room, a large children's bedroom and a large bathroom.

The house is very well set up for young children as we have stair-gates, a cot, a travel cot, 2 high chairs, a double buggy and toys/games/DVDs for children up to 5-6. In the children's bedroom, there is a full-sized bed, an additional full-sized trundle bed, that pulls out, and a cot.

Our house is located on a quiet street, within walking distance of 3 villages and a 25-min walk to St Stephen's Green, the centre of Dublin.

Within a 5-10-min walk: supermarkets, pubs, restaurants, coffee shops, bakeries, butchers, cinema, swimming pool, greyhound racing, playgrounds and parks.

A 25-min walk into Dublin city centre, with museums, theatres, cinemas, pubs, restaurants, parks/playgrounds, Trinity College, Christ Church Cathedral, shops.
