Double Room in Heart of the City
Just like the Thames River that divides London into two geographical regions, the Liffey River does the same to Dublin. Once there was a cultural division on either side of the river (working class on the north side, and upper-middle class on the south side), but modern redevelopment has removed such a divide. This guestroom for one, with a wonderfully eclectic decor, is on the opposite bank to the Temple Bar area, but just a mere walking distance away. The host has prepared a Dublin guide with a list of places to eat, drink and socialize. You are also welcomed to play his guitar and Xbox!
City Sanctuary near Temple Bar
Who would have thought that the most iconic building in Dublin is….a post office? Yes, the General Post Office is the last of the great Georgian public buildings erected in the capital, and it majestically overlooks O'Connell Street, the city’s main thoroughfare. The road starts on the east end of the Temple Bar area, past the O'Connell Bridge into the north bank of the Liffey River, and is lined with monuments and statues of various Irish political leaders. This cozy guestroom for one, with wireless internet and washing machine, is a good option if you want to explore that part of town, being situated close to the river and its many bridges. It’s great for solo and business travelers.
In the cities heart Temple Bar
For many travelers, the best spot in Dublin for an Instagram-worthy selfie must be in the middle of a bridge across the Liffey River. There are two pedestrian bridges that connect the Temple Bar area to the north bank, the Ha'Penny Bridge and the Millennium Bridge. The Ha'Penny Bridge is by far the prettier one, but you’ll have to share it with plenty of other tourists. This no-frills double guestroom in the Temple Bar area is not far from the bridges, and you might even find good photo opportunities along the cobbled walking streets of the area.
