Up to the first floor are three bedrooms, two doubles and one single bedroom. The principal bedroom and the single room both have custom built-in wardrobes in a dusty pink/peach.

The attic has also been converted from storage and currently acts as a fourth bedroom with its own ensuite. Lit was by large Velux windows, views capture the Dublin Mountains in the distance.
