Overview

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.

The cottage does have internet.

Wonderful stay at Sean's cottage! THIS COTTAGE HAS WIFI CONNECTION. Older reviews say it doesn't but this is no longer the case. Everything about cottage is charming, with comfy couch and cozy living room. Perfect for my partner, adult daughter and me...

The perfect city location

  • 5 of 5

Perfectly located, just a few steps from the buzzing hub of Dublin, yet quiet and safe. Met at the bus stop we were shown to the house and given a run-down on what to see and what to give a miss to. The house was warm and comfy; only the shower disappointed in its relative weakness. We walked absolutely everywhere; little is far away. We ate out, ate in, kicked off our shoes - did what we wanted. Even visited the ancestral home. Highly recommended.

Lovely cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

As many others have said Sean made the arrival very easy. Meeting us at the bus stop, taking us to the cottage and telling us all we wanted to know about the surroundings and further afield.

The cottage itself was ideal for the two of us. More than enough space and all the facilities we needed.

It was a very good location just off the main tourist areas which made for peace and quiet at night. We found it an easy walk to all the recommended areas of the city and with so many interesting streets to explore we never found we were walking the same streets over and over again.

In the evening there were plenty of interesting pubs for a good Guiness (Brazen Head, Long Hall, Stags Head). There were also numerous nice places to eat on and arounds the shopping streets between Grafton Street and the Castle.

Would definitely recommend this cottage if you want an authentic base from which to explore the centre of Dublin on foot.

our second stay at cottage

  • 5 of 5

this is our second stay at the cottage and once again we absolutely loved it. The location is perfect and close to all major attractions. We walked everywhere. Sean is a perfect host and left us milk in the fridge and some cake. It was wonderful to return after a long day and relax and feel as if we were home. I love this place so much I recommended it to my brother and his family and they feel the same way. Thanks again Sean and who knows we may be back!

Exactly what we wanted.

  • 5 of 5

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.
