We stayed in this apartment for 2 nights with our daughter. Elaine was excellent to deal with. The location is great with a tesco express next door and it's in a lovely area. The welcome pack is an added bonus. The bedrooms are very quiet as they are located at the back of the apartment. The apartment is well stocked. Check in was easy as you collect the keys at the pharmacy underneath. However I do feel the apartment could be cleaned better. The sealant around the shower in the ensuite needs to be replaced as it's very discoloured and makes the ensuite look dirty. There was a smell in the kitchen area which meant we had to keep the windows open while we were in the apartment. If these issues were resolved It would be an excellent place to stay.
A fantastic stay in a lovely apartment. From the dealings we had with the very welcoming Elaine prior to our visit, to the welcome pack on arrival and the special arrangements Elaine made to look after our bags before we could get into the apartment (as we arrived very early) we were looked after like royalty from start to finish. This was a perfect place to use as a base to explore Dublin. My sister in law had a wheelchair, but can use sticks for short distances ( the apartment is up a flight of stairs) it's a 40 minute walk into the centre of Dublin, but we didn't mind, as there was plenty to see and we often broke up our stay with a stop for a meal, or a drink. If you are pushing a wheelchair watch out for the pavement surfaces (we nearly tipped her out a couple of times, but that might have been the whisky). Facilities wise, we found the apartment perfect for two couples, as we both effectively had an ensuite. It was modern and light and as the bedrooms are at the back, there was no noise from the busy road to keep us awake. We would recommend to anyone.
I had read all the reviews before booking this apartment and felt that everything that was described was true to its words except for mentioning the bathrooms.
We had the bedroom with an en suite. I wasn't prepared to use the shower as the sealant around the shower basin was covered in black mould. The bottom of the toilet was black. Not sure if that was rust or if the enamel had come away. If these issues were repaired or replaced, I would personally have given this apartment full marks.
Top location as it was in a nice neighborhood with every amenity at hand. Plentiful buses outside taking you into the city which was only 15 minutes away.
Gracys bar 5 minutes walk away with beautiful Irish singing on a Saturday night.
We arrived and the temperature was 27 degrees. Meant that the apartment was very warm. A fan heater would be a nice touch if anyone needed it. We only found an empty fan box in the cupboard.
It was lovely to have a nice breakfast collection left for us to start us off.
I would definitely come back and would recommend it.
Bus stop nearby and all the stores you need; pharmacy, grocerie, fish market and a remarquable wine store.
