I'm Gráinne, originally from Co. Kildare and raised in a small family run hotel. I am married to Tim who is now retired from An Garda Siochána (Irish Police).
Tim and I purchased this property in 1986 and lived here for a number of years until our family grew and we needed to relocate.
We loved living in this area and have many happy memories of our first home here.
I have consistently worked in the hospitality industry and always wanted to provide holiday accommodation here as I felt this to be an ideal location. I have been lucky enough to have realized my dream.
I pay particular attention to detail and set the highest of standards in cleanliness and customer care.
Our aim is to ensure that you really feel at home and comfortable in our apartment and we will endeavor to assist you in any way with any aspect of your vacation, so that you get the most out of your trip to Dublin.
We are at the end of the phone 24 hours a day if you need any assistance.
Assuring you of our best attention.
Grainne. purchased this apartment in 1986
Why Grainne. chose Dublin
We chose this location because of close proximity to downtown Dublin.
We loved the period red brick property with large rooms.
Fantastic large enclosed rear which is very private and unusual for a city centre property.
Easy access to any part of the countryside and still only 10 minutes from downtown.
Nice residential old part of Dublin with true Dublin characters in abundance.
Settled community with lots of nice neighbors whom you can be sure will speak to you if you bump into them.
All facilities such as banks, pharmacies, supermarkets, butchers, gas station, restaurants, pubs, hair and beauty salons, dry cleaners, etc on the street.
Super public transport with the Luas and Dublin bus.
What makes this apartment unique
The most unique benefit is the location.
Only 10 minutes from downtown Dublin with that real at home feeling when you arrive back after your day out.
The house was built in the 1800's and has a lovely spacious and tranquil feeling to it.
I love the large rooms and high ceilings with the original coving and open fire which is really cozy on a Winter's evening.
In the Summer time, we enjoyed many barbeques out back, and found it peaceful and quiet.
One huge benefit and highly unusual in a city apartment is the amount of both indoor and outdoor space.
Guestbook comments from the owner
My boyfriend and I stayed at the Bay apartment last week from late aug through Labor day weekend. It was heaven. Beautifully furnished. Clean. Everything you need for a comfortable and relaxing stay. We rented a car, so the spacious yard with gated fence gave us peace of mind that it would be safe.
The appliances in the flat were so convenient. We did laundry almost everyday and the clothes came out wonderful. I cooked and found everything I needed at my fingertips...well except for pepper!! Lol!! The bathroom is big and spacious and I was surprised by the excellent water pressure and plentiful hot water!! The bedroom was also large and had plenty of outlets so we could charge our phones and things. The living room was cozy and we were able to spend our last nights relaxing in front of the fire.
Grainne and Tim were attentive to our needs, while giving us plenty of privacy. Tim sent a man spot quick to fix the hose leak on the shower and Grainne had her caretaker put keys in the lock box when we accidentally locked ourselves out!! She was always available by text to answer our questions including where to get fireplace supplies! The gentleman at the back of the property even remotely opened the back gate for us one morning!!
Inchicore is a wonderful little village. We felt comfortable walking around even at night. The Italian restaurant in town was amazing! Romantic and delicious
food. The village is close to local attractions such as Guiness Storehouse, Drimnaugh Castle and Kilmainham Gaol and the M50 motorway, so we were able to go anywhere we wanted with
This apartment is so comfortable and amazing, we felt at home within hours and hated leaving yesterday morning! We will definitely stay here again upon a revisit to Ireland. Everything was just perfect!!
