A 10 minute walk from City Centre, Temple Bar or O'Connell St, 1 min from Four Courts Red Luas stop, this warm, cosy redbrick house features a real bed, large terracotta tiled kitchen and a cast iron stove. There's a bath/power shower; widescreen cable TV & brick fireplace.
A 1930s brick house, which we've done substantial work on. It now has oiled oak floors; a reclaimed-brick fireplace with a cast iron stove; a spacious terra cotta tiled kitchen; a bath-tub, with a standing, Power Shower option; in an absurdly retro bathroom which - if we do nothing to it - will hopefully be fashionable again in two years.
Your room features a comfortable, real bed, clean towels, old fireplace, classic wallpaper, a wooden folding chair and an antique chest of drawers. The bed has drawers underneath for storage. Your first floor window, looks out onto a distinctive old church.
The house is on a main road, making it easy to find, and very safe to walk home to at night. There is a gentle hum of traffic (pretty standard for any city) but we've put in trike glazed windows and a book shelf downstairs to keep this to a minimum.
Servicios y zonas comunes
You'll have access to the entire house, with the exception of our bedroom. If you want to cook in the kitchen, hang out in the living room or soak in the bath, that's fine.
You probably aren't travelling to watch TV. However, if you want to unwind after a day of sight-seeing, we have a large-screen, cable TV in the living room, with Netflix, Apple TV, most HBO shows (including the latest Game of Thrones) + lots of channels, live/pause & record. We also have a large DVD collection of indie movies/box sets/comedy. Our DVD player is portable, so if you want to relax in private, you're welcome to take it to your room.

Otros aspectos destacables
We have a list of good, affordable places to eat, and cultural activities in Dublin City Centre, which we send to all of our guests.
We have the same Check-In rules for everyone:
You can check-in and check-out any time, early or late, and leave bags with us for as long as you need to on arrival/departure day.
But - for this to work - there are two conditions:
1. You need to let us know your (approximate) arrival time in advance, so we can make arrangements to meet you/get you a key.
2.Our previous guests, and our next guests, have the same rights as you. So there may be some overlap on your first/last day.
In practice, if everyone is fair, friendly and flexible, we have no problems.
You can drop your bags, freshen up etc as soon as you land, and leave bags with us until you leave on your last day.
But the room may not be ready for sleeping until the early evening.
And we may ask you pack up your bags on the morning of departure (so the room can be cleaned).
If you have special requirements outside of this, please let us know soonest. We do our best to accommodate everyone (including our cleaner – who’s excellent)
We're happy to welcome you into our home. We'll do our best to be fair, respectful and friendly. We'd appreciate the same in return. We don't allow our friends to smoke indoors (there's a yard out the back, and front, if you do smoke). Similarly, we'd prefer if you ate meals downstairs (in the kitchen or living room), rather than in the guest room.
