All of our apartments are fully equipped with microwave, cooker, fridge, iron, ironing board and hairdryer to make sure that your stay is as comfortable as can be. The kitchen is fully equipped with all the utensils you would need for self catering and we provide freshly laundered bed linen and towels. Maps information and leaflets are provided in the apartment to help guests choose the best sights and things to do and see while staying there. All utilitities, Wifi and parking are provided in the price. There is an excellant bus service that runs right by the house and is frequent and reliable. Airport transfer available upon request for a fee. I manage to meet most guests on arrival but if I can't I nearly always get to meet them before they check out. My caretaker lives on the premises and he helps to check in guests when I'm unavailable. I'm always available by phone or email and am happy to assist guests in any way I can. This street is a beautifully tree lined street which runs right up the the entrance of the Phoenix Park. This park is the largest urban park in Europe and houses Dublin Zoo and the presidential home and offices as well as a children's playground. It is a wonderful park to visit and spans over 1750 acres. The street also has beautiful Victorian red bricked houses all along it which date back to the 18th century so it really is a taste of old Dublin. There is a major supermarket just 2 minutes walk as well as a pharmacy, bakery, coffee shops, bars, restaurants and many other amenities all within easy walking distance. There are several bus routes right outside the house which will take you directly to the city center. Buses are regular and convenient. We can also provide a taxi transfer from the airport if requested. We can also arrange a taxi for other excursions if desired.More

This place is so tiny that it has a pull-down Murphy bed. Granted, the bed is comfortable; and both bed and bath linens are good quality. The bay window lets in plenty of light and a pleasant cityscape, and the 46A bus to the city...More
