Kavanagh’s Mews is a spacious 2 storey Mews House once the home of Ireland’s famous poet Patrick Kavanagh. Before its conversion into a house the Mews was a stable for a Victorian 19th century terrace Mansion on Dublin’s Pembroke road. It’s since been rebuilt and repurposed into a spacious mews house and has been recently restored and redesigned to a very high standard. It’s quietly set back with complete privacy in the former bustling literary quarter of Baggot Rath, now known as the Baggot Street area of Ballsbridge.
The house is specifically designed for 6 guests who can enjoy different beautifully designed spaces. There is a large comfortable living, dining and kitchen area with a real fireplace. Then there’s the separate long TV room with a 9 seater couch system and cushions that can convert into 3 single beds with an ensuite half bath and another half bath just across the hall. Upstairs are 2 double bedrooms and the main bathroom. The decor throughout is fresh, simply white with historic reproduction feature wallpaper, touches of walnut wood and splashes of silver grey. The art is botanical to reflect the beautiful private garden at the back and the annexe courtyard to the front all private and with outdoor seating for eight. The accessories are crafted in Ireland and you’ll find an eclectic mix of books on local history, literature, food and Dublin urban wildlife. If Patrick Kavanagh was to reside here again we’re sure he’d approve of our design and would love to know that guests visiting Dublin from around the world are enjoying the beauty of what was once his home.
