HISTORY OF THE ARTIST RESIDENCE DUBLIN
The cottage has been in the same family The Corrs since it was built in 1921. The land was bought from the Earl of Howth and during the 1940s it was already a guest house run by Kathleen Corr, a widow at the time. The cottage had fallen into dereliction in the past few decades until its present owners envisioned saving this property full of history and character and restoring it into a B&B. The restoration work started in 2011. Particular attention has been paid to restoring all the original furniture and features, the use of natural materials and ensuring the B&B is as eco-friendly as possible. Guests are invited to visit our vegetable garden and egg laying hens.
Breakfast is included in the room rate. A wide selection of breakfast options are available, including freshly cooked hot options. All ingredients are sourced locally from artisans, and eggs are from our own hens. Vegetables and herbs, used in our breakfasts, are mostly grown in our vegetable garden when in season.
At this beautiful B&B, wake refreshed every morning to a delicious gourmet breakfast consisting of a fresh fruit, pastries, cheeses, followed by a hot main course, made from scratch and served every morning between 7:30:00 – 10:00 a.m. in our charming dining room. Dine by candlelight in the winter months, or on the lovely patio overlooking the sea and gardens during warmer weather.
We pride ourselves on using fresh, simple ingredients, as well as the many vegetables and herbs we grow ourselves and fresh eggs from our egg laying hens so we can prepare the best meals for our guests.
