Dublin 8 was named as one of the coolest neighbourhoods in the world by Time Out in their 2021 awards. It’s an area with a long history, from post-famine middle class gentrification, through the bedsit era and now with a distinct hipster vibe. It’s a surprisingly large area, stretching right across the Liffey to include sections of the Phoenix Park and down James Street to the Guinness Storehouse. The beating heart of the new village vibe is very much centred around the Clanbrassil Street artery.
7 Oakfield Place is a fabulous cottage nestled in a quiet cul-de-sac off Lombard Street West – definitely bijou, instantly appealing.
The hallway opens to a front room, historically probably a parlour but now in use as a bedroom. Through the middle of the house is the main living room, with stairs to a mezzanine floor. The kitchen entryway, off the living room, is framed by a stained glass arch. Bathroom and outdoor patio area complete the footprint. Décor is eclectic with liberal use of colour and very clever touches that make the best use of available space.
St Stephen’s Green is less than a 20 minute walk in one direction, Rathmines the same in another. Stroll down to the gardens of St Patrick’s Cathedral on a sunny day, grab a coffee-with-attitude in one of many trendy places locally, hop across to Vicar Street to catch a show. You are right in the heart of Dublin City when you walk out your front door.
THE BOTTOM LINE
You’re probably not going to raise a family of four here, although it’s very possibly been done in the past, but if you’re looking for a home with character in a fantastic location this could be it.
