This is a family friendly 2-bed in Rathmines, a lively spot about 30 mins walk from Dublin city centre. It has old wooden floors, two smallish bedrooms, a living/dining area with a fab solid-fuel stove, satellite TV and wireless internet.
It's old and well-insulated - the well-insulated part makes it somewhat unusual in old Irish apartments. It has also been recently renovated with a modern kitchen and bathroom, gas-fired central heating and a solid-fuel stove which is nice and cozy if you are spending the night in. On the downside, it is the bottom floor of a three-storey house so you will hear noise from us upstairs.
Guests have access to everything in the apartment (it's self-catering). If you need something that the apartment doesn't have please let us know. There's a small park with an all-weather basketball/soccer court and a children's playground nearby (please ask if you need a football). If you are not pushed about playing ball there is a nicer park with a better playground (Belgrave Square) that is also about five mins walk. The apartment has its own entrance at ground level and there is a small back patio to hang washing if you need.
Interaction with guests
Because we live upstairs, we can help you in whatever way we can. If you have a car please make sure to let us know and we can give you a supply of 24-hour parking discs to cover your stay.
Other things to note
Rathmines has its own charm and there are several interesting little churches, parks and some traditional pubs as well as a cinema and swimming pool all within a 7-minute walk of the apartment. The main sights of central Dublin though are around 10-15 mins away by train or bus.
We are a no-smoking house.
From Jan 2 - Jun 22, 2018 the minimum stay is 100 nights.
