Holiday Rental House
Just outside Dublin’s M50 ring road where the bustling city starts to give way to golf courses and vegetables, an old coach house has been charmingly transformed into a quiet and refined country home. Within easy reach of all the main transport routes, this is an ideal base from which to explore the enchantment of Ireland’s capital from an historic domain. The Carriage House faces onto its own sunny enclosed granite and cobblestone courtyard, surrounded by a cluster of outbuildings dating from the early 1700’s. The conversion from coach house to home has left arches where giant doors once hung filled with picture windows painted plum in contrast to the pumpkin flushed walls. A glazed entrance lobby leads to a bright and intimate living room.

Within easy reach of all the main transport routes, this is an ideal base from which to explore the enchantment of Ireland’s capital from an historic domain. The Carriage House faces onto its own sunny enclosed granite and cobblestone courtyard, surrounded by a cluster of outbuildings dating from the early 1700’s. The conversion from coach house to home has left arches where giant doors once hung filled with picture windows painted plum in contrast to the pumpkin flushed walls. A glazed entrance lobby leads to a bright and intimate living room. The space is furnished with a delightful collection of antiques, books, paintings and ornaments that tempt scrutiny. Rough plastered white walls and well worn wooden columns remind us of a more utilitarian time. The house enjoys sustainable under floor heating on the ground floor, but there is also a wood burning stove for cosiness. The spacious kitchen / dining area retains some stable detailing in iron grids, fittings and bruised door posts. The dining room connects through a small parlour study into the garden courtyard, and the combination of informal spaces positively encourages entertaining. An archetypical pair of oculus windows light up the exposed joists and ceiling that echo the deep tones of the walnut kitchen cupboards. The upstairs double bedrooms retain the original rustic stone walls and tiny windows. The master is ensuite, and the second is served by a family bathroom. Facilities The house is equipped with everything you would expect in a luxury home, including CCTV. There is also a Kayak available. A gourmet cook is available on request to cater for dinner parties – we require 2 weeks’ notice though. If you have a particular requirement, be sure to tell us.. Outside The property is reached via a long driveway that runs in from the Royal Canal. The secluded courtyard with its shady pergola is perfect for summer Barbeques and entertaining. Surrounding buildings originally served as the coaching stables for Luttrellstown Castle Estate, and adjoin the renown Beech park walled gardens, which were developed by David Shackleton in the mid 20th Century, and are due to re-open to the public in 2016.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.
Learn more about our review moderation.
