About our home

Our family home is located in the heart of Dublin’s south side, a short bus ride from the city centre (10 minute drive). A bus stop is conveniently located outside the gate to our house, with buses regularly going throughout the day into the city centre. You can visit Trinity College (the home of the Book of Kells), O’Connell Street, Parnell Square, Grafton Street (the main shopping area in the city centre), the National Gallery, Temple Bar, Guinness Storehouse, St. Stephen's Green and Government Buildings, while still being able to come home within 10 minutes, away from the hustle and bustle of town. If you wish to plan a day trip out of Dublin, the motorway is a mere 10 minutes by car from our front door. Phoenix Park (the largest enclosed park in Europe), Dublin Zoo, Dublin Castle, the Botanical Gardens, the Irish Museum of Modern Art, are all a short drive away.

Harold’s Cross, Terenure village, Rathgar and Rathmines (with an abundance of lovely shops and cafes) are also within a 5/10 minute walk of the house and the beautiful Bushy park is a 25 minute walk away. There are also several playgrounds within short walking distance.
Our four bedroom Georgian house was newly renovated in 2015 and has three floors (3,500 sq.ft.). It has been expertly refurbished keeping the original feel, but with all the modern conveniences. There is a large open plan kitchen/living area on the ground floor which opens out onto a large garden. A more formal sitting room and dining room is located on the second floor and there are three bedrooms on the first floor return and second floor (a large double bedroom is located on the ground floor). It accommodates one room with a super king size bed, two rooms with double beds and one room with a baby cot and single bed. There are three bathrooms (all with showers), one located on each floor. The main bathroom is luxurious and spacious with a walk-in shower (with both handheld and rainfall shower head), a deep freestanding bath and a double sink unit. A home office/study is located on the first floor.

The kitchen holds a built-in dishwasher, large electric hob/oven and American style fridge freezer. The washer/dryer is located in the utility room. We have high speed broadband with wifi and multiple hard wire Ethernet ports, cable TV, DVD players and Wii for your entertainment (as well as lots of toys and board games). We have a very large collection of dvds and computer games for you to choose from.
