About The Owner

Hi,

That's my dog Oscar in the pic!.I used to live in this area with my now wife Joanne from Australia.The home is very comfortable and the area is on a very quite road.The area is full of charm with lots of local people coming and going.Within walking distance to Dublin City Centre.

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

Why The Owner chose Dublin

I used to live in this house and decided to buy a bigger home,so as this home was so close to the City i thought it would make a great self catering home from home

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fantastic stay in your house in Dublin. We have rented a lot of properties in our time and this was without a doubt the best one yet - spacious, stylish, comfortable and so full of little touches and treats like the scones, weather report, chocs and bath products - We felt really spoiled! Thanks also for booking the restaurant and taxis - this made things so easy and relaxing for us

I'd recommend your house to anyone thinking of staying in Dublin - thanks for making it a really special treat to celebrate my birthday!

Dublin City

  • 5 of 5

A group of 7 of us traveled to Ireland for the Penn State game. This house was wonderful. The property was clean and well-maintained. The house really was a home away from home for us. The location to Dublin City made most things walkable. But above all else, Simon was a huge help to us. He genuinely cared about our experience in Ireland and was avail 24/7 for anything we needed. He even met us at 7:00 a.m. the last morning to make sure everything was OK on our trip.

Beyond All Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been happier with the house! Upon arrival Michael, the house manager, gave us the grand tour showing us all the amenities, many unexpected, that came with the house including the delicious brown bread and scones. The Family Room was more than comfortable but the bright kitchen and huge kitchen table kept our sizable group socializing there instead most nights. Modern, clean appliances and supplies made it a home away from home for us. More than enough room for our family reunion.

The location was close enough to downtown Dublin (O'Connell Street) that we had no trouble making the 10-15 min. walk there even with three young boys and a girl in a stroller. Also had access to a Tesco's (I believe it was) nearby as well as a playground around the corner.

What really sets this place above all others however was the hospitality of Simon and Jo. They took a genuine interest in our comfort and making our visit special. Simon's pride of ownership and guest services was both apparent and exceptional. Obviously, would highly recommend!

Wonderful flat in Dublin!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment in Dublin was an absolute joy to stay in. We loved the location. We could walk everywhere we wanted to go. The flat itself is very spacious and the four of us had plenty of room. Simon was extremely helpful with suggestions and information and we appreciated all of the nice details in the apartment. We would highly recommend this apartment to anyone traveling to Dublin.

gorgeous flat!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the absolute pleasure of staying in this lovely flat for a week, and so far it has been our favorite place! Simon met our shuttle upon arrival, even though we were early, and he gave us a thorough (read: clear and not overwhelming) tour of the house and its workings. Jo made us delicious scones and Irish brown bread that sustained our hungry kids until we could get our bearings. The fridge was also stocked with staples to get us started: Irish butter, milk, juice and jam, and the pantry had plenty of spices and seasonings for the nights we cooked at home.

Our kids LOVED having the television and PS3--we LOVED closing the door on the noise and enjoyed hooking up our ipods to the speaker in the kitchen while we sat on the sweet little patio.

Our time at Simon and Jo's was just fabulous: we could walk everywhere once we figured out our little area was so close to the Jamesons' factory tour and Temple Bar going one way and O'Connell Street going another. The location was very, very convenient. There is a little market around the corner for staples that sold delicious produce as well. A few blocks away we found a larger market, and a Marks & Spencer was within walking distance if you wanted to shop on a grander scale.

We can't say enough about how wonderful and helpful Simon was! He continued to be helpful even after we left Dublin, sharing the names of places to visit at our next stop in Galway. Simon is simply terrific, and he will do absolutely everything within his power to make your stay in Dublin grand!

Great experience in this apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this apartment. The contact is super friendly and the house is more than a house - we felt like home: so much space, equipped with love for details, tidy and only some minutes ago from Dublin city. I would book directly again. I don't think, there is any hotel or apartment, which has THIS standard and such a feeling like this place.

Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this property in the run-up to Christmas. It was spacious, warm, comfortable, clean and really thoughtfully appointed. The owners couldn't have been more helpful - booking a restaurant and taxis for us and providing masses of literature and suggestions for making the most of Dublin. We would definitely stay here again and would warmly recommend it to anyone thinking of treating themselves to a really special place to stay in Dublin.
