Our home

Our Victorian home is located within the heart of the old city: it feels bigger on the inside than on the out. It is hunkered down for the long haul. The architects of yore built on the pride in the hearth, the reviving power of your special armchair on a polished stone floor. There is a landscaped garden out back that welcomes the wild birds who know a special sanctuary when they see it. Shopping, theatre, restaurants, museums, galleries, you name it, are all within a stone's throw of our front door. And when you wish to escape to the country, you swap the pavement for the hedgerow in the twinkling of an eye. The M50 motorway is twenty minutes north; from there you can pick and choose. There are cottages and castles, coastline and conversation, breezy beaches with the freshest air this side of the rainbow. Dublin is a cosmopolitan hub echoing to the voices of Ireland and the big world. But it is the natural headwaters for a journey to the heartland of Ireland

Who we are

  1. My wife and I moved to the capital seventeen years ago. We feel that the process of adjusting to the bigger town is well advanced. We are both natives of Cork, the southern 'capital'. Our daughter was born here in Dublin. We are both professionally engaged in teaching, me with the City of Dublin Education and Training Board, Miriam at Dublin Adult Learning Centre. We both work in the sphere of adult and further education. We really enjoy living in our home; it affords the opportunity to appreciate the history, and the richness of the city, as well as allowing easy access to the countryside which we love.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We are located two hundred metres from the North Circular Road, the once outer ring road that encircled the entire City. The modern city has long since escaped its clutches, but the charm of the old town still resides around us. Doyle's Corner at Phibsborough is a four road junction of banks and bars. The Royal Canal flows nearby from its source at Lough Owell in the far midlands, to the Liffey docks near the harbour. The canal was dug in the Eighteenth Century to facilitate trade. It is still an intact sentinel to the industry of its builders. The Mater Hospital, perhaps the leading medical care centre in the state is just around the corner should the necessity ever arise for you to use its facilities. Croke Park, the cathedral of Gaelic Games and one of the largest sports stadia in Europe, is one kilometre distant. In high summer, the cheers of the spectators can easily be heard when a goal has been scored -or saved. Luas Cross-City tram line now open. Great transport and access upgrade. Our stop is 'Broadstone -DIT'.
