By wandering just 20 minutes from the centre of Dublin (and a mere ten minutes from the airport), you can land yourself a grandiose nineteenth-century home. It's a townhouse that used to be a ribbon factory, and more recently an all girls' school. Killeen Terrace may sound (and look) pricey – but given it sleeps up to five people (who you can split the cost with) this place is an absolute steal. When you’re not exploring the wonders of the city or enjoying a mouthwatering dinner in the picturesque village of Malahide, get the fireplace (and aga) going and snuggle into the kingsize bed of your dreams. Or enjoy the spacious patio. There's parking so that you can get to Dublin in no time.
