DescriptionA late-Victorian terraced cottage, recently redecorated to suit more contemporary tastes and needs. There are all the appliances you’d expect to find in a modern home; a well-equipped kitchen, gas-fired central heating throughout, TV and fast broadband internet. A small wood burning stove in the lounge provides additional heating and lends a cosy and comfortable atmosphere. Surprisingly spacious, the cottage would suit a couple plus or minus a friend, or perhaps a pair of graduate students.
All of the bills are included in the rate: TV & internet, Gas & electricity, and refuse & recycling.
Ballsbridge as a neighbourhood
The cottage’s location in the centre of Ballsbridge makes it an ideal place to live. As well as the nearest four pubs, there are a large number of eateries and restaurants in every direction from the cul-de-sac. There are new shops along Shelbourne Rd, including Avoca, with more under construction. There are plenty of other small shops for convenience locally. A larger Tesco supermarket on Baggot St is just 1km away. That street also has many other shops, pharmacies, restaurants and pubs to offer.
For enthusiasts for rugby and football, not to mention fans of large arena gigs, there are the RDS, and Lansdowne Rd’s AVIVA Stadium: both within 500m. For those who like to keep fit, there is a gym at just 100m, or the very convenient Herbert Park for tennis courts, soccer pitches, and much more besides.

The entire area extending from the cross at the bridge both north and east for about 1.5km is fast becoming an important hub for Tech multinationals, and allied businesses. This makes this residential quarter of south Dublin city very attractive to anyone working in the ITC sector. UCD and TCD are also both not far from here using the convenience of public transport links, both by bus and by DART.
While there is no parking to offer with this cottage, tenants can take advantage of residential parking permits for use in the surrounding streets. These are issued to car owners with residency, and are controlled by Dublin City Council. But, that would hardly be necessary given the central location of the cottage and the very many amenities at hand.
Getting to the city centre is very simple using the 4 & 7 bus routes, or the frequent DART service, both are a very short walk from the cottage. If the weather permits, thirty minutes walking would bring you as far as to Stephen’s Green.
