This two-bed home is a few minutes’ stroll from the Grand Canal.


WITH PLENTY OF new businesses and cafés opening in the area in recent months, Rialto in Dublin 8 is certainly having a property moment. This €280,000 cottage is at the heart of the action, but tucked away on a quiet cul-de-sac off St James’s Walk.

The two-bed terraced property measures a neat 419 sq ft on the ground floor, with the converted attic bringing it to 549 sq ft in total.

The cottage is finished throughout with wood panelled details and furnishings – it’s ready to move in, but could also be modernised, design-wise, with a lick of paint.


The front door leads straight into the living room, which benefits from plenty of natural light through a picture window. There’s solid wood flooring in here, timber-panelled ceilings and a feature fireplace with an open fire, plus wooden stairs to the attic. 


The wooden floors continue to the kitchen, where a cut-out panel looks through to the living room. There’s access to a private yard area from here, as well as from the ground floor bedroom at the rear of the property. 


This bedroom is a well-appointed double with fitted wardrobes, while the bedroom in the converted attic is spacious and enjoys plenty of natural light thanks to a large Velux window. A bathroom on the ground floor with a bath/shower completes the accommodation.

No 48 is in an ideal location for those who want to be close to the city centre, but also want to be able to remove themselves from the hustle and bustle at the end of the day. 

The Goldenbridge and Dolphin’s Barn stretches of the Grand Canal are just a five-minute walk away, while the Rialto Luas stop can be reached by foot in two minutes. There are numerous shops, restaurants and cafes nearby, with Stephen’s Green a 35-minute walk away. The property comes with on-street parking to the front but, with a location like this, you might not need it.
