PICS: This Portobello Gaff Is Every Interior Design-Lovers Dream

Alana Laverty

This could be one of the most spectacular properties on the rental market in Dublin right now. 

But it definitely comes at a price. 

At €6,250 a month, it’s far from cheap, but is so delightful. We can dream…

Located on Heytesbury Street in Portobello, just two streets over from Harcourt Street, this is easily walking distance from town which is very handy altogether! Although it’s nearly so lovely you wouldn’t ever wanna leave.

With just two bedrooms and two bathrooms, it could either work out at €3,125 for two people or €1,562.50 each between four. 

Steep. But you’re definitely paying for location and the quality and design of the place itself. 

Yes, you’d be undoubtedly comfortable here.

Heytesbury Street was built and developed way back in the early 1800s as an artery to join in with Portobello Harbour – so it is without a doubt steeped in some quality history. 

The Victorian street is lined with trees and the red and grey brick homes all have colourful doors and steps leading up to them – very classic Dublin. 

The house has a cinema, that was once another bedroom, and another separate guest bathroom. All ideal for entertaining.

With high ceilings, ornate cornice work, marble, beautiful woods, quartz finishings and French doors throughout, this home really is every interior design-lovers dream. 

To top it all off, the house is complete with a west-facing Sandstone garden, raised flower beds with exotic shrubs and an olive tree. Just because. 

What more could you want?
