All of our apartments have been named after famous Irish authors or poets which gives each apartment its own individual personality and gives guests the chance to experience the what it must have been like to live in a Victorian house many years ago.

We have just completed work on our W.B. Yeats and have restored it to some of it's former glory with original features such as the marble fireplaces, coving and a beautiful bay window overlooking Dublin city and mountains.

There is a double bed and a single bed in the main bedroom and there are 2 pull down sofa beds in the living area. This apartment sleeps 6 comfortably.

The James Joyce is located on the ground floor and has the same beautiful features such as the high ceilings, coving and marble fireplaces. This apartment sleeps 6 with 2 double beds in the main bedroom and a pull down sofa bed in the living area for 2 also which means it can sleep 6 in total.

The Samuel Beckett was our first apartment that we developed and has a more modern feel to it but provides every comfort and convenience that you would expect of a luxury holiday let. There is a double and a single bed in the main bedroom and a double pull down sofa bed in the main living area which allows for a total of 5 people to sleep comfortably.

The apartment is in a beautiful large red brick Victorian building on a tree lined street.

I come from a family background in the hospitality industry.

I grew up in Kildare which is about 45 minutes from Dublin and worked for many years in my parents hotel there.

I emigrated to New York for a number of years and when I returned in 1990 I purchased this property in Dublin City.

As I am a qualified builder and carpenter I undertook to restore this house over a number of years and restore it to some of its former glory. As you can see from the pictures there are a lot of original features which I managed to retain and I am pleased that I can finally share them with people from all over the world.

I am now living in Kildare again and am married with a daughter.

As my parents before me I am committed to providing all of my guests with a wonderful holiday experience in a beautiful period house. I am available at all times for my guest either by phone or email and am happy to answer any query.

Liam Travers purchased this apartment in 1990

I chose this location for the proximity to the city centre and of course the beautiful Victorian Redbrick lined North Circular Road.

These properties are a feature of Dublin and are preserved by Dublin Council. The fact that the Phoenix Park and the Botanic gardens are within walking distances is an absolute plus, providing plenty of recreational activity. Numerous pubs, restaurants are within walking distance and I feel that the house provides a sense of character and charm not matched by modern buildings and houses.

There are a number of benefits to staying in this property. Located close to the heart of the city of Dublin there is an excellant transport system by bus and light rail that means all of the sights can be visited with the minimum of fuss. The building itself is a beautiful Victorian property that has unique charm while offering all the modern comforts that a guest could expect.

The location is ideal as it is quiet while being convenient to all shopping, sights, transport, museums etc. that makes a holiday. Located beside the Phoenix park which is Europe's largest urban park the traveller can have a taste of the country while still remaining in the city.

There truly is something for everyone.

SAMUEL BECKETT APT RENTAIL

  • 3 out of 5
The apartment was clean and tidy as outlined in the ad and met our basic needs. The caretaker was kind and let us into the apartment early which was quite appreciated. However, we did find it a bit far from the city centre about a 45minute walk. There was no welcome package as advertised in the ad nor was there any toilet tissue provided ,besides what was on the roll. There was a large amount of garbage in the front yard and odor as you walked up and into the apartment, which was not very welcoming. Unfortunately I would not recommend the apartment to our friends or relatives. I would give it a 2.5 to 3 rating.

A LOVELY APARTMENT CLOSE TO THE CENTRE OF DUBLIN

  • 4 out of 5
The apartment is in a great location close enough to walk to Dublin city centre and close to Phoenix Park which is beautiful. There are plenty of buses to various locations if you don't feel like walking. There are also eating places nearby as well as a handy Tesco for anything you may have forgotten.
Liam was on hand to help and was really incredibly helpful and accomodating. The apartment was clean and comfortable and had all that we needed to make our stay enjoyable. We spent a lovely few days there.

LOVELY APARTMENT, PERFECT FOR A SHORT STAY!

  • 5 out of 5
A Perfect Stay- I stayed here with a couple of friends for a long weekend in March.

We found the apartment very comfortable and it was equipped with all the essentials Pots, Pans, Hair-dryers, kettle toaster etc (The Kitchen is lovely!)

We did walk into the centre of Dublin which took about 15 mins- but there is also a bus stop located just outside the apartments!

Also the apartments are located within walking distance of Phoenix Park- we were lucky enough to spend a day here in the sun, visiting the Park and the Zoo!

Liam was a perfect host from start to finish, we arranged an airport pick up and early drop off of our bags, which was very useful!

Would love to stay here again in the future!!
Thanks Liam

EVERYTHING WAS CLEAN AS IT SHOULD BE.

  • 5 out of 5
The first impression was good and we had a perfect time in the Samuel Beckett apartment. Everything was as we expected it. A tiny but comfortable place and close enough to the city center. We were 5 people so it was the perfect size. The only negative thing I could say is that the mattress in the living room was not very comfortable.
The owner left anything we need for breakfast on the first morning and we really appreciated it!

We are located just 10 minutes from the city centre and have several bus routes that pass by the front door regularly. We are also close to the Luas (light rail) which covers all of Dublin.
