Places to Stay | Dublin, Ireland
Georgian Townhouse is the ultimate paradox for those looking for a place to stay in Dublin.
There is nowhere more invigorating and lively in Dublin than the Temple Bar quarter, but once you enter this restored Georgian House you step back in time and a sense of calm and timelessness surrounds you. After a night walking the cobbled streets, where you can wine, dine or sample the nightlife on offer, your front door is a mere step away. On entering your home from home, the gentle risers of the stairs lead you to the first floor drawing room. Here you can play the Bechstein boudoir grand piano, or relax on the sofa as you read a favourite book, an experience of the elegance of a former way of life.
The size of the main bathroom on the top floor will surprise you. The free standing enamelled bath with potbelly taps will keep you lingering in the bath for hours, if only to enjoy the surrounding space.
Dublin is ranked as one of the most vibrant and cultural cities in Europe and this house is an ideal location from which to sample the rich diversity of the city. Temple Bar itself hosts a variety of attractions including The Irish Film Institute, The Ark Children’s Museum and music venue The Button Factory. Close by, Dublin City Hall has a wonderful exhibition on the story of Dublin and the exhibits in the Chester Beatty Library are world famous. A visit to Trinity College and the Book of Kells is a short stroll away and guests can explore the lively pedestrian shopping streets at the heart of the city or spend an afternoon sampling the many cafés and restaurants off Stephens Green.
