MAGICAL ARTISAN COTTAGE, BEAUTIFULLY RENOVATED, A UNIQUE & SECRET GEM.

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Dublin - Moffatt Cottage

2 bedrooms, sleeps 3, extra mattress in loft for one more. 1 Bathroom.

Staying in this genuine one hundred year old red-brick artisan cottage in this tiny, quiet, hidden square is in itself a rare and extra-special treat. Bright and airy by day, cozy and warm by the stove at night, your own private south-facing patio to the rear to sit out on, a bright modern galley kitchen and bathroom. But its location cannot be bettered with literally all that Dublin has to offer the visitor there within a few minutes walking distance of your doorstep.

Checking in and out: On your arrival the owners of the cottage will make you feel more than welcome, giving you a good idea of how close you are to all the major sights, good places to eat and shop, tips on how to make the best of your time, what's on music-wise, in theaters, at galleries or book readings. We can even give you knowledgeable advice/assistance if you are interested in your Irish family history!

Whenever it is possible we like to let our guests arrive on their first day as early as they like and leave on their last day at the time that suits them best in relation to their flights etc. Unfortunately, when there is an overlap with guests arriving and departing on the same day this may not be possible and the check-in time would have to be between 1.30 and 2.00, while check-out time would have to be by mid-day. This is to allow us time to to prepare the cottage. Do check with us in advance of your arrival just to be sure.

The Perfect Base: Forget about the car. Not only are the city sights on your doorstep but for a few Euro you can access all along the beautiful Dublin coast as far as Wicklow by the Dart (Electric train), from the city station just ten minutes away. From Heuston Station (five minutes away by taxi) you can even travel on one or two-day trips train trips to Galway (3 hours, 34 Euro return trip) and get to see the Arran Islands, the Cliffs of Moher or even the Ring of Kerry, and lots more. Glendalough in Wicklow can be reached by a coach from a nearby bus stop (one and a half hours, about 15 Euro return), Newgrange from the Central bus station.

If having Internet access is Important to you...: The cottage does not have an internet connection but some of our guests have managed by purchasing a 'Dongle' which allows you to have full access to the internet on your lap-top anywhere. Recent prices people tell us they have paid were 49Euro for the Dongle and seemingly it is just 10 Euro a week, you can activate your system through the '3' provider here in Dublin. You might want to check this out before-hand if you are interested.

But there is one internet cafe just 2 minutes from the cottage, and charges just 2 Euro an hour.

Exactly what we wanted.

Very clean, had all the neccesary supplies, great location. Wonderful host. South Dublin is where you want to stay and you'll want to stay in this cottage.
Tip: Make sure you sign up for one of the 3 day tours and see some of the other beautiful areas of Ireland. You'll save money on the 3 day tours and they'll leave from/return to area you can easily walk to.

Cosy Cottage

I stayed here a few years ago and it was as lovely as I remembered it. Cosy and warm with everything you could possibly need and a in a great location, close to everything but in a quiet area. Very clean and plenty of towels. Sean had left us some scones which was really nice :) One change is that there is now WIFI which is great. I have no hesitation recommending this property for a stay in Dublin.

We arrived in the middle of a Dublin bus strike but, due to the ideal walking location of the cottage we never once had to consider changing our itinerary. The charm of this Dublin cottage along with the city map and insight Sean provided made this one of our easiest and most enjoyable vacations yet.

After an all night flight we felt rather desperate for good accommodation. We waited at the bus stop for our host (and a obliging early check-in) imagining all kinds of horrors, as one does in a tired and grumpy state. How reassuring when Sean appeared to escort us to the cottage and what a sweet place! The bed is comfortable. The kitchen well equipped. The location perfect for exploring the city and close to all kinds of venues for music. Clean and comfortable. We had no problems not having Internet as we tethered our iPhone to a pay-as-go phone plan from 3 network (20 euros gave full 20 euros credit AND unlimited data plan for 30 days). The cottage is in a quiet little cul de sac away from the busy city but close enough to we walk everywhere. A fish and chip shop blocks away, a convenience store, a good coffee spot. Everything you need. Sean knows the city and was very helpful, a wonderful cultural adviser who made us feel very welcome. Dublin, itself is fascinating and especially, with Sean as host, well worth the visit.
Highly recommended!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Moffatt Cottage! What a wonderful, wonderful little place! And the location was just perfect! We were warmly greeted by Sean as soon as we arrived. He was friendly and so helpful! He showed us on the map where we were, what was around us, made suggestions, and gave us valuable tips. What a gem! He made us feel much more comfortable about where we were in Dublin. Because of Sean's knowledge, my husband and I were able to decide that we could return our rental car...didn't need it! The cottage was clean, cozy and we wanted for nothing the whole week we were there. Would definitely stay here again...hands down. Thank you Sean.
