Tucked away in the quiet privacy of a tiny, historic square, yet within strolling distance of virtually all the City's attractions, Moffatt Cottage is really something special! South of the Liffey and with all the gentle charm of a romantic hide-away… wainscot panelling in the bedrooms, Irish artist's work decorating the walls, the warming glow of a replica stove set into the original open-hearth fireplace, a south-facing, trellised patio to sit out in while savouring the sounds of the bells of St Patrick's or Christ Church Cathedral as they ring out over the city.

You'll be entranced, you may never want to leave! The only way to really experience the magic that is Dublin!

Tthis was our third trip to Dublin and of course chose Moffatt Cottage. LIttle late with the review as I thought my daughter had already completed. Sean is an excellent host and I cannot say enough about the location but it is perfect. Travelled with myself, daughter and niece. We had more that enough room and a 4th person would...

When we were searching for accommodations for our short visit to Dublin, we were thrilled to find this cottage was available. Not many places consistently get a 5 star rating! The cottage is so quaint and charming. You feel like you are visiting someone's home and not a vacation rental. The location is so close to all the main attractions... more

We stayed at the cottage in the liberties section surrounded by churches. The cottage has two bedrooms. One for single, other for couple. Would be tight for more than 3 people. Met by Sean echo spent quality time discussing how to work all the appliances and heat. Then gave us an overview of walking tours, sights, train and buses, local... more

Additional amenities & feature info
You enter directly into the living room area, which, like the other rooms, has high ceilings, is bright and airy by day, but takes on an intimate, cosy feeling as evening draws on. Relax in the large soft leather sofa in front of the stove's flickering flames, perhaps dipping into the collection of books left there for your perusal.

Enjoy dinner at the table in the same room, paintings and prints by Irish masters decorating the walls around you. Both bedrooms are off the living room. The double room, in keeping with the overall cottage charm, has a superior double bed built into a magical alcove space, with a panelled surround, lowered ceiling and antique overhead reading lamps. A small ladder leads to an open loft space above the bed with a skylight for use as small office space (or...
