About Carolyn Potter

I was born and grew up in Dublin and left home to get a job in the UK in the early 1980's when I was in my 20's. I now live in the UK but bought this apartment in Dublin many years ago after the death of my Mum, so that I have a place for my family and myself to visit, so that I get to keep my accent and my children get to know a bit about their roots!

Carolyn Potter purchased this apartment in 1999

Why Carolyn Potter chose Dublin

I bought this property because it is right in the very centre of things in the city centre. It is on the northside (only just north of the river!), and because I am a Northsider I was attracted to it, Everywhere you would want to visit is walkable from the front door. Also this particular apartment, although it was just one bedroom, was significantly more spacious than most that I looked at and it was also in a nice well maintained block.

It fitted the bill for holidays or short break in Ireland.

We refurbished the property a couple of years ago, and completely refurnished it, and it now offers everything you would want in a home from home setting.

We also installed WIFI, and cable TV so there is a full range of entertainment options available. There is a small DVD library there too.

What makes this apartment unique

The main benefit of this property is it's location. Although it is right in the heart of the city it is not on a main traffic route. It is situated on a little used stretch of a one way system, so there is very little street noise. The apartment is on the third floor and in all my visits there I have never heard any noise coming from the neighbouring apartments. It feels a very comfortable place to be .

In this part of the city centre there are several apartment blocks and they have been well catered by foodstores. There are several major supermarkets withing a couple of minutes walk and many other small convenience stores, not to mention the myriad of bars, restaurants and other venues right on your doorstep.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"5 étoiles: Parfait

Nous revenons de 4 nuits à Dublin dans l'appartement de Carolyn Potter.

Je suis très contente de mon séjour dans cet appartement.

La propriétaire habite l'Angleterre et je savais que nous ne nous verrions pas.

Elle a été très gentille, très rassurante et très patiente avec toutes mes questions.

Nous sommes arrivés avec le bus sur O'Connel Street et nous avons trouvé notre adresse sans aucune difficulté.

Je voulais que le quartier soit sécuritaire et ne pas avoir peur en rentrant la nuit.

C'était impeccable.

Henry Street et ses magasins sont à 1 minute de l'appartement ce qui a fait le bonheur de ma fille qui a pu partir en expédition shopping toute seule.

Il y a toutes les sortes de fastfood sur le boulevard à quelques minutes de l'immeuble ainsi que plusieurs supérettes.

Donc aucun soucis pour faire les courses.

Nous mettions 9 minutes à pied en passant par Capel Street pour se rendre au premier Pub à Temple bar (the Porterhouse était très animé)

L'appartement était très propre.



L'appartement, l'immeuble et le quartier sont impeccables.



La literie dans la chambre est très moelleuse.



Par contre celle du canapé convertible est plus ferme. C'est un peu difficile pour mettre un drap en dessous mais il est confortable et grand pour 2 personnes adultes.



Les couettes sont agréables.

Nous avions des serviettes de bains à notre disposition. Cela pourrait être pratique d'avoir quelques chose dans la salle de bain pour les mettre à sécher.



Je n'ai pas eu froid du tout dans l'appartement malgré le temps mitigé.



Et il y a des radiateurs si besoin de chauffage supplémentaire.



Je reviendrais sans hésiter dans cette appartement si nous revenons à Dublin."

Clean and excellent location!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful stay here. Truly an easy 10 minute walk to Temple Bar and other city attractions. Everything was ready when we got there and was very clean. Comes with everything you need; TV, iron, stove, hot water kettle, cleaning products, washer/dryer combo (which was a little tricky to operate having not used one before), quick Wi-Fi and comfy bed!. Other travelers (us included) were kind enough to leave any extras they may of had (shampoo, pasta, coffee, etc.) for others to use and enjoy. Close to groceries, pharmacy, movie theatre, shopping malls, taxis and restaurants; good Italian restaurant across the street. As women traveling alone, we felt very secure in the building as you have to go thru a few security locks. Place was also quiet as it is off the main roads. Owner was very accommodating especially when we had to extend our stay...I know, bummer... an extra few days in Dublin...LOL!! Landlord was also very nice and helpful and was able to take our luggage in early as we were arriving before the room ready time. Only caution is that the shower curtain likes to get a little "friendly" as the bathroom fan pushes it around while showering. Not a great view from our room, but great location. Would definitely recommend and looking forward to staying here again!!

This excellent apartment scored in every way for location, cleanliness & facilities. There was nothing that we might have needed that was not already thought of & easily located within the apartment. It is in a very nice & secure block just off Parnell St. It takes 5 or 10 mins to get to anywhere within the city to start your explorations of this really great vibrant & friendly city. We were so impressed that every time we opened a map someone would stop & ask if we needed help. Food shopping or eating out is all very conveniently situated & there is a cinema 2 mins away as well. The information provided is excellent & we were shown how everything worked & where things were once we were shown into the apartment. . Can highly recommend this for a great Dublin break..

Perfect Location!

  • 5 out of 5
We took an overnight flight to Dublin and arrived at the apartment at 10:30 on a Monday morning. It was a short walk from where the airport bus dropped us off to the front door of the apartment. Since no one had rented the apartment the night before, Zasklin (the care taker) had the place all ready for us and allowed us access upon our arrival! We so appreciated that! The apartment was very neat and clean and Zasklin walked us through every room showing us where everything was and how the shower, hot water, appliances, etc worked. We left the apartment later that afternoon and upon our return, we realized we didn't remember the code for the door and had to call for it. Zasklin answered the phone right away and provided the code immediately so we were back inside in no time! We were steps away from grocery stores, restaurants, right next door to a movie theater, and a short walk to O'Connell St. We needed a cab to get to the train station and the taxi stand was right around the corner from the front door. Carolyn Potter, the owner, provided so much information prior to our arrival and Zasklin took good care of us while we were there. I will definitely stay there again and will recommend it to everyone!

I stayed at the apartment with my 3 year old son and a friend joined us for the week end. I highly recommend it for its location and cozyness. I lived in Dublin for many years before becoming a once-a-year visitor and I can guarantee that the location is great and the quality and service are very satisfactory. My son made himself at home immediately and we had enough space in case we decided to stay in ( you know, Dublin weather..) to play. We could cook (saving money and stomac overworking) and Tesco, Aldi and Lidl supermarke are just 3 minutes walk away.

A very pleasant apartment

  • 5 out of 5
This is a very clean and well-equipped apartment in a good, quiet block and location, very handy for getting out and about in Dublin. Carolyn is very easy to communicate with and I was given a warm and friendly welcome by Zsaklin, who was very helpful altogether. I was very happy with my stay and have already booked to stay again later in the year.

This property is located right in the very heart of the city centre on the north side of the river Liffey. It is located in a residential block on Parnell Street, which runs parallel to Henry Street (2 minutes walk) which at one time was labelled the busiest shopping street in Europe. O' Connell Street which is normally considered the centre of the city is only 5 minutes walk from the front door.

There are numerous bars, shops restaurants and attractions on the doorstep, and the world famous Temple bar is only a leisurely 12 minute walk away over the River Liffey.In addition there is a multiplex cinema directly next door to the apartment building. You would find it hard to be closer to the heart of the city.

Night rates also apply, and there is also free street parking from 7pm till 7am. Even though it is a city centre, there is a good range of food shops and supermarkets within a few minutes walk. There is also a taxi rank directly opposite the building, servicing the multiplex cinema located next door. Internet access has been upgraded to cable broadband WIFI 8mg at no additional charge. In addition there is an internet cafe yards away. You will be greeted by our representative and will find a welcome basket in the apartment. Linens and towels are provided for your stay. This apartment truly is a home from home, and is right in the heart of Dublin. You couldn't be closer to the centre of things if you tried.
