About the property

A Very Beautiful And Stylish 3 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom Mews, Built In 1792 .


The apartment in this mews is called Chez Jay after my son. it is a much loved and luxurious property in a very cool location in Dublin. it is an oasis of calm but when you step outside you are in the centre of everything. It is a wonderful location from which to explore Dublin at day and at night. I bought this mews 19 years ago.it has been recently refurbished and done to a standard of luxury throughout. It is something that one just can't sell as it could not be bought again. The mews is secured behind electric gates. There is a private courtyard in the front. The entrance leads to a loft style living space which includes a Siematic kitchen with Gaggenau appliances. Leading from the living room are two bedrooms and bathrooms which lead out onto a private balcony to the rear. The master bedroom is on the next floor. The master bathroom has a tub, a television and a walk in shower. This bedroom leads to a private deck with an outdoor hot tub and an outdoor shower. It is great to sit in the hot tub late at night and to listen to all the sounds of the city outside. Maybe enjoy a glass of Prosecco after a day's sightseeing as you savor the evening. We are happy to provide you with that as a welcome when you arrive and in case the mood takes you.

If you visit us in the winter, we have great heat and a cozy gas fire to take the chill out of the evening.

There are televisions in all bedrooms. In the living room there is a Bose TV and this includes a sound system suitable for use with an iPod. Fine Italian furniture furnishes the living room. The mews has been recently refurbished it to a very high standard. It is a very special place and is a much loved property. it is only available to rent to families and mature couples. This is a non smoking house but there are plenty of facilities to smoke outside. . While the price may seem high in comparison to other properties, it is reflected in the quality of the furnishings and fit out and location. I would much prefer to rent to a select few than to have it busy all the time.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Donal here - we stayed in Lad Lane over Christmas - apologoies for the delay in getting back to you.

We have just returned to Australia following our wonderful family trip.

I wanted to get back to you to give you feedback on our experience in Lad Lane – please feel free to use this feedback in any way you wish.

The short feedback is that the entire experience was exceptional. The apartment is stunning – incredible location, beautiful renovated and fitted out to perfection – all completed to the highest standards.

It worked really well for our family of 6. The living area was really comfortable, welcoming and an area one was drawn to. The bedrooms and bathrooms were beautifully fitted out – you should be very proud of what you have accomplished.

Our experience prior to arrival was also excellent. You were easy, clear, efficient and straightforward to deal with. I appreciated that. Thank you for arranging for Paul to have the keys to meet our two oldest children at the airport. He was excellent and could not have been more helpful. It made everything easy.

Mairead, it was a joy to stay in Lad Lane – I will/have certainly let others know what a great place it is and hopefully we can return one day.

Best Regards,

Chez Jay was exceptional. Beautiful, old, architecturally-interesting building that has been completely updated for comfort on inside. From towel warmers, floor heat, room by room heat control, an entire sound system, kitchen w all the equipment u could possibly want, many lighting options, sky lights, I could go on & on!! Oh and the outdoor private hot tub, and the adorable courtyard w many planted flowers. Just. Perfect. Paul & Jacqui were both SO professional, responsive & enjoyable to work with. Highly recommend to ANYONE, even the fussiest traveler!

This is a beautiful spot to explore Dublin. Perfect for romantic getaway or family with teens.

It's not often that a flat is just exactly as advertised. Lad's Lane is all it says, and more. Extra touches like warm throws, plush towels and nice soap were all welcome and unexpected. The rooftop view alone from the hot tub would make me want to return.

Wonderful apartment. Beautiful, charming, spacious, with privacy when wanted. We were a three generation family and it was perfect for us. Owner and manager were quick to respond when we had a question. It is in the perfect location for Dublin. We easily walked to restaurants, museums, Grafton Street, Pubs, everything! Dublin is a walkable city. Paul, the driver, is great - he picked us up at the airport upon arrival and brought us back to the airport upon departure. When we had a question about an appliance, he was able to answer it. He also drove us along the coast and down to the beautiful Wicklow Mountains and Glendalough, giving us interesting information along the way. We highly recommend a stay at this property.

We had our family of four in the unit and we had a fantastic time! Jacqui was great to work with and made sure we had good information for our stay in Dublin.

Beautiful 3 bedroom apartment in Dublin!!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 5 adults spent 4 days in this lovely, three bedroom apartment in Dublin. It was our favorite place during a two week trip in 4 cities in Europe.

The apartment is centrally located and within easy walking distance of many destinations such as St. Stephen's Green and Trinity College. There are convenience stores and a sandwich/coffee shop very nearby.

The communication process with the property manager and owner both before, during, and after our stay were flawless, timely, and helpful. The recommendation to use the services of Paul to drive us to and from the airport, as well as facilitate checking into the apartment, was both cost effective and efficient.

The apartment is very clean and the living areas are large. The beds in all 3 bedrooms are very comfortable, the bedding and towels are luxurious, the washer and dryer units operate well though they take longer than U.S. machines, the balconies are convenient for fresh air, and the outdoor hot tub was a plus.

We had one issue related to not having hot water which was quickly resolved after communicating to Paul shortly after check-in. After that, we had plenty of hot water. One of the three bathrooms is fairly small but adequate. It would be helpful to have outlets in the bathrooms with space to use hair dryers, etc. rather than in the bedroom but this was a minor inconvenience.

The apartment is well suited for adult groups in particular. There are two sets of stairs - one from the ground level entry to the main floor which has the main living areas, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, and another set of stairs that goes up to the upper level to the third bedroom and hot tub.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely apartment and hope to return to Dublin and rent from this owner again! Highly recommend!!

Fantastic duplex in Dublin

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a 5 day stay at this beautiful apartment. This was our first experience renting on Home Away and we could not have been happier. The owner put such thought and care into the renovation of this historic property outfitted with every modern convenience. The pictures do not do it justice-the furnishings are comfortable and elegant, the bedrooms thoughtfully designed for travelers, and the bathrooms are sleek with high end fixtures. We were able to walk everywhere-the location is ideal for sightseeing but the apartment was quiet and private at night. On Jacqui's recommendation we employed the services of Paul Rochford for airport pick up/drop off as well as a day trip to Wicklow. He was wonderful (always on time and helpful) and it was a comfort to know we could call him if needed. Ate at local Searson's , had great seafood at Matt the Thresher's and watched rugby at O'Donoghue's pub--all a short walk from the apartment. Had a fabulous Thanksgiving dinner for 24 people at Forty-one near St Stephen's Green. There were also several local sandwich shops, bakery's, wine shops, and convenience stores to choose from a block either way on Baggot Street Lower. We had several friends and family staying nearby and everyone commented on how nice the apartment was and enjoyed convening here at night for a drink before heading out to dinner. If we are in Dublin again I would not hesitate to book with Mairead & Jacqui--Chez Jay 1 is an ideal "home away" from home.

This mews building is set in the heart of Georgian Dublin. There are two apartments in this building. Chez Jay 1 has 3 bedrooms and is located upstairs. Chez Jay 2 has 2 bedrooms and is located on the ground floor. It was built in 1792 and was originally the stables of one of the great houses in Fitzwilliam Square. It is within short walking distance of great restaurants, pubs, the Shelbourne and the Merrion Hotels and Grafton Street. It is very close to the National Art Gallery and Government buildings. Ireland’s finest Michelin star restaurants are all within easy walking distance. While the area is quiet, there is a real sense of being in the centre of everything. There are lovely walks along the canal and in the parks of Merrion Square and St Stephens Green.
