Exceptional experience from start to finish!
Let me start by mentioning that I booked this apartment almost 4 months in advance. Every e-mail from start to finish was promptly and courteously replied to. I have never had better communication with a hotel or apartment host in my life. Joan was more than accommodating on every level. She happily went above and beyond in supporting my unique circumstances. It is apparent that she truly cares about the happiness of her guests!
This wasn't my first trip to Dublin, and the location of the apartment was unbelievable, especially for the price! We were a 10 minute walk from Temple Bar, 5 minutes to the Dart train, and 2 minutes from O'Connell street where the St. Patrick's Day parade was held. There are pubs, shopping and grocery stores within a 5 minute walk as well. Joan's partner suggested that we take the Dart train to a town on the coast called Howth. It turned out to be one of the highlights of the trip! That place was truly magical!
The apartment itself was very spacious. Everything we needed was provided in the kitchen including grocery bags (they charge for them at the local super market). There was plenty of coffee and tea as well. I advise looking through the cabinets before going shopping for food. There was more already there than I expected, so we ended up buying more than we needed to. It was very clean, and the wall of windows in the living room was pretty amazing! The entire building shuts off the heat at night, but our hosts graciously provided space heaters and big fluffy comforters which were more than sufficient. The apartment is very safe, with security and restricted access to the building. Overall, our stay in Dublin was a remarkable experience, made possible by our beautiful apartment and gracious hosts. Next, and every time I visit Dublin in the future, I will be staying at Abbey Court!
