MODERN RESTORATION OF A CLASSIC COTTAGE ON A VILLAGE GREEN IN DUBLIN CITY

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Dublin - Irish Oasis

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Architecturally designed, beautifully reconceived, gem of a house. An old tramline cottage completely renovated and expanded. One of 14 cottages around a village green, Highfield Grove is a unique spot.

Suited to a family, a couple who need an optional office or studio or even a single person in need of a zen retreat. There is an open-plan living room, large kitchen, master bedroom with ensuite half-bathroom, a twin room and a loft-room. There is a full bathroom with bath and shower and finally a third living space that can be closed off with a sliding door for guest-room/office.

Underfloor heating throughout. State-of-the-art Kitchen equipment. Custom-made furniture and eastern antiques. A landscaped patio with hot outdoor shower, olive tree and herb garden.

And for those so inclined, we can organize private yoga classes at the house, massage therapist, beautician/hair-stylist, facialist given advanced notice. The house is lightfilled with large picture frame windows and skylights. It has clean-lines and architectural features throughout, open fireplace and bespoke kitchen... all to be featured in the Sunday Independent Magazine this month (February).

The house is impeccably quiet. A feeling of Irish countryside even though it is a ten-minute Luas ride to the fashionable pedestrian Grafton Street, the hub and centre of Dublin City leading down to Trinity College with its Book of Kells. All that Dublin has to offer is right on the doorstep and our management team can help you with anything you may need for your stay in Dublin City.

You can bike around, taxi around, bus, Luas or drive around with very secure on-street parking right outside the door. Highfield Grove is beside excellent shops - Dublin's top butcher and fish monger's (Lawlor's), a health food store with organic vegetables and specialty foods, Fothergills bakery, and Wild Lily Cafe with great coffee and croissants, not to mention the great restaurants five minutes from your door...

Palmerston Park with beautiful landscaped grounds is a minute's walk with its great wooded playground for children. River-walks, mountain trails, ocean-strolls and urban-life all in a 20-minute radius. This is a perfect Dublin retreat from which to embark on the Dublin adventure you would like to create.

Hi!

My name is Dolores. Originally from Dublin, Ireland, I now live in New York. I have lived in and travelled to many places around the Globe, from Tahiti to Egypt and in between and know what it is to have a nice port of entry and a nice bed to sleep in. I am a writer and film-maker and lover of life. Inherently in tune with the needs of a traveller, I take great pleasure in providing a beautiful place to stay in, in my native country, native city, and native village - Rathgar.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2006

I grew up in Rathgar. When choosing a place to have as my home when traveling back to see family and friends it was important to me to be near the Dublin I had always known. I have always liked to live in the centre of a city whether it was in London, Paris or New York and this house is 2 miles from the hub of Dublin in a beautiful leafy setting with lovely parks, restaurants and shops. The house itself attracted me because it was old with plenty of character and yet in need of complete refurbishment that would allow be run wild with my creativity. The setting of the house, one of twenty cottages around a village green set off from the main road, is completely unique to Dublin and I loved the tranquility and old-world feel of this environment. Every time I turn off from Highfield Road and down into that village green, my body relaxes. The calm is a much needed tonic for life in Manhattan.

Very important to everywhere I go is to have a place nearby where I can buy fresh, healthy food, a place where I can have a cup of coffee and a croissant, and somewhere to have a lovely walk. Rathgar village and Upper Rathmines Road offer all that anyone could offer in terms of satisfying gourmet cravings and Palmerston Park, 2 minutes from the house, is beautifully landscaped with a wonderful children's playground in the shelter of its old oak trees. All public transport is available right outside the door as well as free parking. And there isn't a quieter spot in all of Dublin. Particularly appealing to me is watching the trajectory of the moon across the master bedroom picture frame window at night, hearing the birds in the morning, leaving the front door open on a sunny day and wandering in and out of the house to the village green with my friends or my cup of coffee, saying hello to the neighbors who have been their for generations, walking in my bare feet around the house with the floors warm from the sun coming in through the skylights, showering outside in those rare summer days, having feasts at the big kitchen table with family and friends and snuggling up in front of the fire with my loved ones.
