Experience authentic Georgian elegance is this unique large OVAL studio apartment, overlooking park. Accommodates two in cosy sleeping loft. Light a fire, cook dinner in the designer kitchen, and then head out to enjoy the attractions of the city.
AS I DO NOT CHARGE A DEPOSIT, IT WOULD BE MUCH APPRECIATED IF GUESTS OBSERVED THE FOLLOWING RULES, IN ORDER TO MINIMISE WEAR AND TEAR, AND POTENTIAL DAMAGE:
SMOKING IS NOT PERMITTED IN THE BUILDING
The house has been painstakingly restored, with cork flooring in the apartment and original polished wooden floors in the common areas, so NO STILLETTOES, please.
ABSOLUTELY NO FOOD OR DRINK TO BE TAKEN UPSTAIRS - red wine, coffee and tea and expensive white bed linens are a disaster waiting to happen...
Please use coasters under hot cups, and drinks glasses, and be mindful that the finish on waxed and French polished antique furniture is quite delicate; alcohol and nail polish remover will leave unsightly, and difficult to remove, marks. A dish is provided for keys, which can chip or scratch..
Please do not put wooden utensils or cutting boards in the dishwasher!
NB. PLEASE DO NOT OPEN THE CENTRE SASHES OF THE WINDOW
The centre sash of the window is curved, and can be difficult to operate, as the tolerance between the two sashes is very tight- a design issue that cannot easily be resolved. The side sashes have spring balances and operate very easily, and will provide more than adequate ventilation.
PLEASE BE MINDFUL OF SECURITY, and remember to double-lock the front door. The top lock is a latch, but the bottom one is a deadlock, which needs to be locked, both when entering and leaving the building.
It would be much appreciated if guests would strip the bed before leaving. Please leave towels and sheets in two separate piles outside door
Please also TURN OFF the central heating; by turning the rotary switch on the boiler, which located in the press above the microwave. Also, please check that the the back-up electric water heater (immersion) in the press in the bathroom is off (by flicking UP the two switches beside the timer unit..
Other than that, it would be much appreciated if you would treat the house as you would your own home.
I wish you a very pleasurable stay in Dublin.
