About Sean Moffatt
We've been involved fulltime in the arts for most of our lives. The idea of renting the cottage was suggested to us by some friends, which seemed mad at the time (before Air B&B!) but we haven't looked back since. Guests just seem to take to the cottage immediately (as the reviews will testify) which is very satisfying. Long may it continue!
Why Sean Moffatt chose Dublin Southside
For it's location and it's charm, it's that simple. Oh... and for being able to hear birdsong in the morning despite the fact that you are in a busy city!
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage is so close to the center of things and yet you are in a tiny, quiet, residential square, cut off from all that traffic and everyday business, a landscaped garden to one side, potted plants to the other, a high old wall, that runs along the line of the old city walls, climbing roses covering it in late spring and early summer... all this and the fact of it being a 'Cottage' not an apartment, but a real house, over one hundred and twenty years old, a piece of history in itself!!!

Sweet Cottage in the Perfect Location
We loved our stay at Moffat Cottage! I can’t stress enough what an absolutely perfect location it was. Everything we wanted to see in the city was just a few short minutes away. We were actually able to visit so many beautiful and fun sights in such a short amount of time we had extra time left to add an additional day trip to Belfast during our stay. The cottage was very cozy, a perfect place to relax after long days of sightseeing. Thank you, Sean for working with us to help solve the laundry issue. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
The second stay and a great experience again
Great location, good communication. An ideal place to enjoy Dublin.
Cottage was in great neighborhood localized to a lot of sites. It was neat, clean and in quiet neighborhood. Walking distance for meeting place for tours we had scheduled so it was ideal for my party of 3 (included a teenager)
Wonderful cottage in a brilliant area
We had a superb 4 days in Dublin with the cottage as a perfect base. Thanks Sean.
Great Location in Dublin
Small home tucked away in the Liberties area of Dublin. A short walk to major sights - rarely were any of the major attractions more than a 20-minute walk.
Home is very clean and well-kept. Space is tight, but was just fine for three of us, especially since we were just sleeping there. Sean the owner was quick to respond with questions and everything was as advertised in the listing.
It was a rather humbling feeling when my husband and I first entered our cottage in the oldest part of Dublin. It definitely gave us a real sense of the history in this area.
The cottage is small which we felt in the bathroom and bedroom. It was very tight getting out of the shower, and the bed in the larger bedroom had walls on three sides making it very difficult if you had to get out. That bed also needs a new mattress as others have suggested.
The cottage is in a very good location. We were able to walk to many of Dublin’s attractions such as Trinity College, Christchurch Cathedral, St Patrick’s Cathedral, Temple Bar, etc. Also we had no trouble finding good places to eat.
Another quirk we found almost immediately was the heating system. Unfortunately it was either on or off; there was no adjustment. And in order to have hot water in the two sinks, the heat had to be on. Also I tend to be a warm sleeper. Unfortunately the only cover on the larger bed was a heavy comforter. I would have liked more layers which would have made it much more comfortable. I must add too that some of the dishes were not clean and had to be washed before using.
The little historic cottage is unique and in a good location, but, in our opinion, could use some updating.
