Dublin, County Dublin
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!

We stayed for six nights in late January - early February. Sean is a premier host -- the pride he has in his former home shows everywhere. It has many touches that you will really appreciate. It was very quiet due to being on a side cul-de-sac, yet close to many attractions, public transportation, markets and cafes. The only thing...

The cottage was perfect for our needs. We were able to walk to all the spots in Dublin that we wanted to explore. Breakfast was the only meal we prepared in the cottage, so I can't address how well equipped the kitchen was, but it seemed to have all the basic equipment. Is the place fancy? No. Is it quaint,...

Sean was a very helpful and welcoming host. This small cottage has everything you could want for a stay in Central Dublin. Immaculately clean, well equipped and very comfortable. The outside south facing courtyard is a bonus you rarely get in the center. It is genuinely a 10- 15 minute walk to all the main central attractions but also has...

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. <BR><BR>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 smal... more
