About our home

Charming renovated Coach-house, beside the sea in DunLaoghaire, 20 minutes by DART to Dublin City Centre. The area has many amenities in itself such as water sports, walking, tennis and fine dining. It is an excellent base for Dublin city, as well as having many picturesque seaside villages within walking distance. There is a tranquil patio behind the house perfect for dining al-fresco. The accommodation comprises one double bedroom with the possibility of a fold-out bed for a third person in the living room. There is a fully-equipped kitchen and bathroom with bathtub and shower. Off-street parking available.

Dun Laoghaire is a small seaside town within easy reach of Dublin City, either by public transport or by car. Our house is a great base for Dublin city; for culture, sightseeing, shopping or enjoying the nightlife, and is in an ideal location for enjoying the outdoors, and beautiful walks along the coast. Wicklow, known as 'The garden of Ireland' is within driving distance with sights such as Glendalough, which is an ancient Irish monastic settlement.

I am an artist and my partner is an animator. We both work freelance, so our dates are flexible. We love to travel, but enjoy our home also, and take good care of it, as we would do yours.

Where is it?


We love the area we live in, the village of Monkstown is very picturesque and beautifully located by the sea, close but not too close to the city (15mins by Dart) and all amenities within local walking distance. The village has several great restaurants to choose from and there is no shortage of things to do in the area. Our tranquil home is surrounded by trees so it feels like you've just magically landed in the countryside!
