The beds were comfortable, and the kitchen was amply stocked with dishes needed to cook basic meals. We loved being right by the water and being able to walk along the beach into town for a dinner at the pub. The location is a little bit hard to find at first but after the first try, it's a snap to find. Be aware the shower is relatively small, but it's just fine. There is a washing machine in the apartment but no dryer, but there is a 'clothes horse' to dry the clothes on and they dried overnight, no problem. It's super fun to spend time down on the beach as the locals walk their dogs and take little exercise walks there and love to visit with folks who are touring. Very safe and relaxed environment.
Mary is very helpful and friendly and a great resource for things to do and how to get around to other areas. Just a pleasure!
Great apartment a stones throw from the beach and a 10 minute stroll along the beach from the local pub. You will need to hire a car - it is too far to walk to the local train station but it made a great base for us for exploring Dublin and the surrounding area. Mary and family were really helpful and friendly.
Lovely beach side apartment, with stunning beach views from both bedrooms. Mary, the host was extremely helpful & answered all our questions & queries prior to our arrival. The accommodation was tastefully decorated & modern; having all the essentials & also a few extras. There were a few signs of wear, tear&repair- but nothing that detracted from the feel&use of the place. We were very pleased to find a few home essentials which enabled us to get a brew and have a wash before heading to the shops to stock up for our stay. It was cosy, practical & comfortable for our group of 5 ladies. We loved listening to the waves crashing whilst laying in bed.
Only suggestions that we had, was possibly a welcome booklet with details of the accommodation wheres/fores; as we were a bit hit & miss with the boiler/heating timings/settings and only noticed the instructions for the bin segregation on the last day (sorry!). Although we were still unsure as to where to find the bins out in the yard.
We didnt hire a car, but was able to use public transport to travel into the city centre for a few days. On the occasions we didnt use public transport, Mary had provided us with a great contact for a fantastic taxi driver- Ciaran; who provided great tips & advice regarding the surrounding area & places to visit.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the apartments & would recommend to any who want to enjoy beautiful scenery within easy reach of the city centre.
