Nice, comfortable place. Spacious. Very attentive host. Lots of night light in main bedroom from 24-hr office building across the way. In terms of location, we were a bit of a walk from touristy areas. Luckily there is a light rail East-West, and taxis are not outrageously expensive. Close proximity to a few good pubs (notably O'Donoghue's, and The Chapel at the Schoolhouse Hotel), convenience/grocery store for basics directly across the road. A short walk along the nearby canal (1/2 block away) is gorgeous, with walking paths along both banks, and will take you to an area by Pembroke and Baggot Lane, where you'll find many nice little restaurants and bars.
We really enjoyed our stay at this apartment. The neighborhood is really quiet and it's convenient to the DART and bus lines. The owner of the apartment is really great to work with and extremely helpful in planning your stay in Dublin. He truly wants you to enjoy your time in the city. If we get the chance to go back to Dublin again, we would definitely consider staying here again.
The location was fantastic. Our traveling group was 2 couples in our 70's and we had no difficulty walking to any of the usual visitor attractions in the city. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. The owner, Bob, was exemplary with his communication and helpfulness. Perfect. I would highly recommend this accommodation.
Bob was great. He was Very helpful. Beds were comfortable. Very good location.
We stayed at a 2 bedroom apartment close to the canal. Bob was easy to contact and we had no problem getting the key or returning the key.
It was easy to get to see the sights. We used a hop on hop off bus that's less than a 10 minutes walk away. There is a bus stop less than a block away which we did not use during our stay,as well as a taxi stand within a block.
There are lots of cafes, pubs, restaurants within a 10-15 minutes walk. Grocery store, Tesco about 10-15 minutes walk. A Spark across the street for snacks, small selection of grocery.
We made use of the combo washer, dryer. Takes 2 hours to do a small load. Then we had to finish air drying using the supplied dryer rack.
The shower needs several steps. Turn on the heater booster, turn on the tap then the booster for increasing the water pressure. Once these steps were followed, the shower gives a lovely strong flow.
The apartment itself is nice and quiet. The beds are two doubles. I was comfortable enough but my two daughters are not used to sharing a double. The apartment was fairly clean but we could see hard to reach areas that need a more thorough cleaning.
