About our home

Our home is ideally situated in Rathmines Village, in the heart of Dublin City. Dublin is a small friendly, fun city with load to offer. Rathmines is situated on the lovely southside of Dublin, about 3 kilometres south of the city centre. There is loads of Irish pubs, hipster coffee hang outs, chic restaurants and shops on our door step so you don't have to walk very far for entertainment. Our sunny ground floor apartment is cosy and comfortable with a patio area perfect for BBQs in summer. You are also free to use our two bicycles to explore the city and surrounding area! We will update our profile with more pictures of our home very soon!

A 15 minute stroll along the canal brings you to the fine shops, exceptional restaurants and great ' craic' (it means fun, Irish style!) of Dublin, home of James Joyce, Beckett and the friendliest people in the world. We love to cycle into town, wander in the beautiful St. Stephen's green park, a bite to eat and a play in the famous Abbey Theatre, then of course a pint of Guinness, the black stuff, in the heart and soul of Dublin life, the local pub. With many car rental opportunities available you can discover the stunning countryside, mountains and lakes in beautiful county Wicklow, called the Garden of Ireland. Just a 40 minute drive and you are in Glendalough, perhaps the most beautiful lake valley in Europe,or on Brittas bay, an unending golden sandy beach..If you prefer a day on the finest golf course, climbing the 'Suger Loaf' mountain or just a gentle picnic in the grand Powerscourt Estate, jump in the car for a beautiful drive and you'll be there before your U2 cd is finished! we love our country and we would be proud to have visitors experience the pleasures of the Land of a Thousand Welcomes, Ireland.

Our neighbourhood is full of Victorian and Edwardian traditional red-brick houses. Close to our house (3 minutes walk) is a beautiful park. We often cycle over to the Phoenix Park, one of Europe's biggest urban parks, which is wonderful in the summertime, with outdoor concerts, gardening events and the home of our President Higgins. Although we often go shopping in the city centre as it's so close,there is a great supermarket about 3 minute walk away, and lots of quaint coffee shops and little boutiques all within walking distance.

Another Dublin weekend tradition is to take a stroll on Dun Laoghaire Pier, (about 20 cycle drive from our house).Its a fabulous cycle or walk, taking about an hour, and you'll see the beautiful sweep of Dublin bay,the mountains as a stunning backdrop and all the yachts bobbing up and down in the harbour. Joyce's tower, where James Joyce actually lived and where the first part of Ulysses is set, is right next door and houses a great museum overlooking the sea.
