Our home

We live in a lovely stylish clean apartment in the heart of the city centre. Many Irish visitors have said this is one of the nicest city centre apartments they have seen. We are on the top floor of a double-gated apartment complex and have a 2 bedroomed apartment over two floors. Both bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms (one with bath, the other with a shower).

The first floor has a living room and kitchen with bar for casual eating or optional dining room set which we use more when entertaining. The balcony is approx 6m by 1.5m and is accessed from the living room and from the first bedroom, with high table, two chairs and outdoor cooking area, and top floor garden with plenty of fresh herbs. Evenings are lovely at-home time here grilling steaks and dining on the balcony with great sunsets overlooking St. Patricks cathedral and the Dublin mountain. The first bedroom has a single bed and a fold away bed stored underneath with an ensuite shower/sink toilet room.

On the second floor is a large double bedroom with ensuite bathroom and stair landing with working alcove. As we are on the top floor of the complex (there is of course a lift!) the bedroom has a wonderful sky lights above the bed and landing. There is also a good deal of storage space and an underground car park if necessary.

Who we are

  1. My girlfriend and I are a professional couple in our early 30's. I have a holiday business that focusses on skiing in the alps and so with some time off this Summer am keen to relax in a village near the coastal environment in Italy. My girlfriend is in medicine and studying for major licensing exams for the month so ideally we would like somewhere quiet (with broadband if possible) to facilite this. We have not tried the exchange before, but because we have a month and are keen to live rather than holiday and constantly travel for the month think the 'exchange' would be a great option.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We are located in the heart of Dublin city - inside the old city walls just between St. Patricks Cathedral (which our balcony overlooks) and Christchurch cathedral. All of the main city centre sites are within a very short walk including Dublin Castle, Trinity College, Kilmainham Jail, The National Gallery, The GPO, The river Liffey, Temple Bar, Grafton Street, and Phoenix park. There is also a beautiful fitness club with pool and jacuzzi just next to us. Of course all of the night life is also very close, from theatres, to restaurants, pubs, and clubs and an organic farmers market on saturdays.
The city bus tour has a stop out side our apartment and many other tours originate nearby.

If you are looking to venture further a field, the Luas (Dublin's new 'metro') has a stop with in 4 minutes walk. We are 5 minutes by Luas to the country's main train station. The other part of Dublin's metro (the DART) is about a 15 minute walk and will bring you to any of Dublin's beaches.
