This lovely apartment is located right in the historic heart of Dublin. The quiet courtyard location is an oasis of tranquility in this most vibrant area of Dublin. You are surrounded by pedestrian shopping streets, small shops and large department stores. O'Connell Street and the historic GPO (General Post Office) are close at hand. For shopping, the apartment is adjacent Henry Street and surrounding pedestrian streets. Temple Bar is convenient - just over the historic Halfpenny Bridge - where you have a large number of musical pubs, restaurants, theaters and places of entertainment. Dublin's night life is special and many people come just to enjoy the music, pubs and Guinness.
Many historical landmarks, Trinity College and the elegant Grafton Street area are all within 15 minutes walk of the apartment. And, yes, when you rent this apartment we recommend walking as the best mode of touring. Also there is the 'around the city hop-on-off bus' for more distant attractions like Kilmainham Jail. The LUAS tram stop is 4 minutes walk from the apartment and rapid Rail service - the DART - is just 15 minutes.
Here are some ideas about places you might like to visit. Everything mentioned below is WALKING DISTANCE FROM THE APARTMENT. Walking time is listed in the brackets.
TRINITY COLLEGE (10 mins) - Once the educator of the elite of Irish society, Trinity College is now open to all. See the Old Library and the Book of Kells.
DUBLIN CASTLE (10 mins) - See the Old Walls of Dublin, State Apartments, and the treasury.
TEMPLE BAR (3 mins) - Dublin's Cultural Quarter. Located in the heart of Dublin's City Centre, some of Dublin's best night spots, restaurants and unusual shops line these narrow, cobbled streets running between the Bank of Ireland and Christ Church Cathedral.
GUINNESS HOPSTORE (25 mins) - In the Guinness factory complex this excellent visitor centre tells the dramatic story of the 250 year history of Guinness. A complimentary drink in the highest bar in Ireland, the Gravity bar is part of your visit here. Find out more about The Guinness Storehouse
DUBLINIA EXPERIENCE (15 mins) - Dublinia traces the story of Medieval Dublin from the Viking Invasions through the Black Death to the closure of the Monasteries in the 1540s.
KILMAINHAM JAIL (25 mins) - Ireland's most famous prison museum. A place of incarceration for many rebellious fighters including the leaders of the 1916 Rebellion in Dublin, who were executed in the grounds.
COLLINS BARRACKS (20 mins) - this is old Army barracks which housed troops until the late-1990's. Now it has been transformed into a very interesting museum, with many special exhibits. From the apartment you can also get to Collins Bks by Dublins new LUAS street tram system. Walk to Jervis Shopping Centre down Abbey Street and take any tram 3 stops to Collins Bks (4 mins ride). Have coins to buy your ticket in the machines at the tram-stop.
SHOPPING IN HENRY STREET (3 MINS) - Department stores such as the popular Arnotts', and an assortment of popular clothing and footwear stores are here on Dublin's Henry Street. The ILAC shopping centre, and the newer Jervis Street Shopping Centre are both here.
SHOPPING IN GRAFTON STREET (15 MINS) - Dublin's smartest shopping area with fashionable stores such as Brown Thomas. Other principal shopping streets in the area include Wicklow Street, Dawson Street, and South Great Georges Street. We really like the all-glass ST STEPHENS GREEN SHOPPING CENTRE at the top of Grafton Street. Also, just off Grafton Street is POWERSCOURT TOWNHOUSE CENTRE which is a nice place for a coffee or snack.
PUBS - An essential part of Dublin's social life and a must for every visitor. In Dublin today there are basically two categories of pubs. We recommend one of Dublin's oldest pubs, THE BRAZEN HEAD (15 mins). For nice Guinness we like FARRINGTONS in Temple Bar (10 mins). To meet all of the beautiful people go to the vast luxury CAFE EN SEINE in Dawson Street (15 mins). If you are in Dublin when the DAIL EIREANN is in session DOHENY & NESBITTS is the place to encounter political intrigue and many relaxing politicians.
NIGHTCLUBS - at least 10 in TEMPLE BAR.
THEATRE - the nicest theatre is THE GAIETY and you can walk there from the apartment in 15 mins.
MUSIC - we like the shows at OLYMPIA THEATRE (5 mins) in Dame Street which features many top national and international acts. THE OLYMPIA is laid back and you can even have a beer while in your seat enjoying the performance. If your like classical or serious Irish music, and want to visit a really impressive venue, there are shows every night in the NATIONAL CONCERT HALL in Earlsfort Terrace. Its near St Stephens Green - 30 mins walk from the apartment or 10 mins by TAXI.
