With its thriving art culture, the position next to the largest city park in western Europe, and proximity to the thriving heart of Dublin city centre, the old working-class neighbourhood of Stoneybatter has plenty to offer visitors to Ireland’s capital. Wildlife fans will marvel at the herds of deer passing through neighbouring Phoenix Park, culture vultures will delight in the arts scene that has sprung up in recent years, and food fans will thrill at the varied opportunities to tantalise those taste buds. And, with the likes of Temple Bar, the Guinness Store House and other city attractions within easy walking distance, it’s easy to see why Stoneybatter is a popular base for a short Dublin break. These are just some of the best Airbnb vacation rentals available when looking for a place to stay.
This well-reviewed private room scored highly among previous visitors to the city thanks to the “lovely hosts” and their “amazing personalities” as well as the property’s handy mix of peaceful surroundings within minutes of bus and tram spots. So, if you plan on using public transport to get about you’ll be well set — although those planning on using their own vehicle are also catered for thanks to the free parking at the property. Amenities include access to the kitchen, for those occasions where you’d rather conjure up a culinary treat instead of hitting Dublin’s popular eateries and bars. Those travelling for business will also find the wi-fi internet access useful.

Enjoying glowing reviews from previous guests, who gave this Airbnb top marks across the board, this double bedroom was hailed for its “great location”, “cosy” interior and warm welcome from the hosts. Many also fell in love with their dog Poncho — although if you have allergies you may wish to look elsewhere because he loves his cuddles. The kitchen is available for simple teas or coffees only, but the neighbourhood’s popular coffee shops and eateries mean you won’t want for tasty cuisine during your stay. Those looking to explore further afield will also find plenty of transport links within the vicinity. And nearby attractions within easy reach include the Temple Bar, Smithfield Market and the Guinness Store House.

Just a few minutes from the city centre by foot, this double bedroom is another great option in Stoneybatter for those who wish to explore the Irish capital and its many charms. Those looking for that little added touch of privacy will value the en-suite shower and toilet facilities, while other amenities include access to the host’s kitchen, cable TV, laundry facilities and wi-fi internet. The latter of these will be as useful for pleasure trippers looking for sightseeing inspiration as it will for business travellers or students who plan on working during their stay. Parking is available nearby, for a fee, but the city has plenty of public transport options for ease of getting about.

Those who opt for a stay here will also enjoy wi-fi internet and access to the whole flat, bar the other bedrooms.
