Our home

Our home is an early 20th-century artisan red-brick terraced home in the heart of the Liberties. It has been recently renovated with a new kitchen and bathrooms, but we've maintained many of the beautiful original features. The house has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathroom, one en-suite. Our reception room is in the centre of the house and has a wonderful large fireplace/range. There is a well-stocked library to the front of the house that enjoys evening sunshine. We have a small back garden with BBQ. We have an eclectic collection of modern art and furniture.

Who we are

  1. We are a couple in our 40s: Ken's an architect and Yvonne works in the non-profit sector. We share our time between Dublin and our home in Ballymoney, Wexford. We like to travel and are particularly interested in going to Chicago this year. We haven't done a home-exchange before but family members are big fans and have had some great experiences so we're looking forward to trying it out.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The Liberties is the oldest part of Dublin city and home to the famous Guinness brewery, Meath Street market and Francis Street's antique shops. It's ten minutes walk from the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA), historic Kilmainham Gaol and the National Museum (Collins Barracks). A 15-20 minutes stroll will take you to the heart of the city: Trinity College Dublin, Grafton Street's shopping area and all of Dublin's best restaurants, bars and theatres.

Dublin city is small and pretty flat, so it's great to walk around. It's also easy to rent bikes or take a tourist bus. We're also close to Dublin's Phoenix Park, one of the biggest enclosed parks in Europe. It's also easy to get from the Liberties to the greater Dublin area (the seaside towns of Howth or Dun Laoghaire) or further afield: one of the two main train stations is close by, from where you can take trains to Galway and Cork. A tram will take you to the second main train station.
