We had a wonderful stay at the Michael Collins apartment in Dublin. It was a lovely older style building with comfortable oversized rooms that felt grand but not pompous. The Luas was only about 500 metres from our door and took us straight in to the heart of the city. We also utilised the services of Rory and his taxi to get us about with our luggage. Rory was extremely helpful and friendly and not expensive either. There were a few tiny issues which certainly didn’t detract from this lovely stay but are worth mentioning. Whoever painted the interior, which had obviously been done recently, whilst they’d done a good job painting, they had paint spatter everywhere. Even on the lovely leather sofas, which was a bit sad. There is an external light at the rear of the building which is utilised by another apartment which unfortunately even with the heavy drapes drawn, made our bedroom far too bright, and on occasion was left on overnight. Not the fault of the other guests who would have been oblivious of it aging into our room.
Last quibble was that they were lacking some basic supplies like milk when we arrived, which may have been an oversight, but would have been a nice touch and was always provided everywhere else we stayed on this trip. These were not big issues and we would certainly stay again and would highly recommend Michael Collins apartment to anyone staying in this fair city.
We stayed in the Michael Collins apartment on a recent visit to Dublin and loved everything about it. The apartment is in a Victorian building with lovely high ceilings, open fire etc. The bedroom is situated to the back of the building, so we were not disturbed by traffic noise. The beds are super comfy with good mattresses and the apartment is clean, comfortable and convenient to the city centre with great public transport links by bus and the tram, which is a few minutes walk away. We visited Kilmainham Gaol and the Irish Museum of Modern Art. Great location for many of the theings we wanted to see such as the Guinness storehouse, Dublin Zoo, Kilmainham Gaol etc. Good restaurants in the vicinity such as Enotico Torino and Union 8, both of which we dined in. The owners were very helpful in answering any queries we had. Would most certainly recommend as a great base from which to visit Dublin.
