“A seemingly remote cottage, 20 minutes walk from central Dublin”
Reviewed 2 December 2012 for a stay in October 2012

person found this review helpful

If you take the ferry into Dublin from the UK, you can actually see the cottage from the top deck as the ferry pulls alongside Dublin terminal. The coastguard station is unassuming from the outside in a no-nonsense Liffey-side neighborhood with a massive park at its heart. You may not be be able to stumble downstairs into a raucous pub, but you will enjoy your daily walk through this park even more: the shouting excitement of pickup soccer and football games, the neighborhood kids conspiring an evening of mischief, the moms pushing their prams and gossiping. If you want to go to Dublin and stay in an Irish neighborhood that is safe, close-knit and proximate to city-center, then this is perfect for you.

The cottage is itself beautifully decorated, stacked ceiling-high with books, and painted a dark blue inside, which makes the art on the walls pop out. The overstuffed couch sucks you into nights of wine, conversation and reading in front of glowing embers. The walls are thick as bedrock so you don't need to worry about hearing neighbors, hearing noise from the port, or disturbing anyone if you are having fun yourself. It's so quiet you think you're in the countryside and so welcoming you think you're home.

Further, Billy is a genial host, even providing a quick driving tour of the neighborhood and all sorts of tips on local fare and transit. Ask him to show you "the walk" and you'll discover a local hike that most locals don't even know about.

“on the small side”
Reviewed 6 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Great little property would suit a couple or plus 1 quiet location fair walking distance from public transport links. The public transport is great into Dublin. Owner very helpful and very accommodating. If you have a car it is a great base for exploring.

Billy did a great job setting up taxis and property management help even before we arrived in Ireland, once we arrived he did a great job getting us sorted with orientation to the neighborhood, activities, transportation, etc. Ringsend and Sandymount are wonderful neighborhoods with great restaurants and a lovely walk along the South Wall, and easy access to all parts of the city.

“Delightful Dublin get away - full of charm”
Reviewed 4 November 2011 for a stay in September 2011

people found this review helpful

We needed a rental house for a weekend break and found this house on Trip Adviser. I fell in love with the place immediately from the photos and the reality of the house did not disappoint either.

The Coastguard Station Cottage has been faithfully restored with care and detail and the art work within the house is eclectic and a perfect compliment to it's surroundings. There is everything you would possibly want from a rental property.

Situated within easy access to Dublin City Centre with easy access routes via the Luas or the bus, it was the ideal location to return after a heavy day of sightseeing/shopping/galleries/eating and drinking (and the open fire was a welcome sight too).

The helpfulness of everyone you meet (including the owner) will make you feel more than at home during your stay.
