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.

About Liam Travers

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

Why Liam Travers chose Dublin

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Ireland Stay

  • 5 out of 5
Quite a lovely apartment, all the amenities needed for our 9 day stay. The apartment was clean, spacious and sound proof. The location was very convenient to the city, taxis were always available yet walking distance was just as easy. We visited the Zoo which is several blocks down the road, the Soulfood restaurant was fabulous, lots of quaint pubs to visit, food store the corner. Thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Ireland would definitely consider renting again and recommend to all. Thank you Liam.

beautiful apartment in a great location

  • 4 out of 5
We really enjoyed our stay in the James Joyce apartment, the flat was beautifully decorated with ample space for all 6 of us. The apartment was in a great location, right next to the local tescos and a 5 minute walk away from Phoenix park, as well as being right next to a bus stop which took you into the centre of town.
Liam was there to meet us when we arrived at the apartment and was quick to arrange taxis from the airport which was a great help as we had never visited before. We thoroughly enjoyed staying in the apartment and would definitely recommend it to friends and family.

Fantastic

  • 5 out of 5
Wonderful apartment, just as advertised. Of all the places we stayed in Ireland this was perhaps the best mix of authentic character and convenience. The owners (Liam and Fiona) were extremely accommodating and polite and the apartment was perfect. Whether you are looking for a home base from which to experience the culture and beauty of Dublin or simply trying to take a few days off to relax (we were looking for a little of both), this is a fantastic and affordable option. Five stars!

"Everything was as promised, even better. The apartment was clean and the kitchen fully equipped.
The neighborhood was quiet, close to main tourist attractions, bus station and a supermarket.
Best accommodation one can get in order to have a great vacation in Dublin."

"Ha sido mi primera vez en Dublín y he de confesar que vale la pena repetir. Nos hizo un tiempo fantástico teniendo en cuenta que fuimos del 31 de diciembre al 5 de enero. El apartamento es luminoso, muy limpio y no hemos echado nada en falta. Tenía todo lo necesario y más. Las camas/almohadas muy cómodas. A los que no les guste caminar quizás les parecerá un poco alejado del centro pero hay varios buses que paran justo al lado (Nosotros solíamos ir caminando) Hay restaurantes,bares y un gran supermercado para todos los gustos. La zona es tranquila.
Liam, el propietario, me ayudó en todo lo que necesité desde que decidimos alquilar ese apartamento. Una persona muy servicial sin llegar nunca a resultar incómoda.Organizó el servicio de taxi para recogerme en el aeropuerto ya que llegaba sola y además permitió que mis amigos dejaran el equipaje en el apartamento hasta las salida de su vuelo. Realmente nos hemos sentido como en casa."
