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.

Our Molly Malone studio sleeps 2/3 people comfortably and is the ideal location for exploring the city of Dublin. There is a double bed and a pull down sofa bed that's suitable for 1 person.

These apartments have been lovingly restored to a very high degree while retaining a lot of the original features to provide a classic and extremely luxurious stay. All are luxury apartments with all the comforts of home.

It is a wonderful location close to all the attractions and sights while being a relaxing bright and spacious apartment to come home to at the end of the day.

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

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.

Cozy studio

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the Molly Malone 4 nights. Liam was very responsive and met us at the studio at the time I requested. Studio was very comfortable and quiet. The bed was very comfortable. A bit of a walk to Grafton or O'Connell street but close by were several great pubs and restaurants that we enjoyed very much. Thank you Liam for a great first time in Dublin.

We had a very pleasant stay at the Molly Malone Studio. everything was clean and there was enough space for us three. the neighborhood is very calm and you can reach the next supermarket within two minutes. to get downtown we took the bus but also walked sometimes. the location is just perfect to enjoy every aspect of dublin (we also recommend a trip to the coast!). the owners are very nice and we could contact them anytime.

all in all we had a very great experience!

Met our needs - location & amenities

  • 3 of 5

The studio apartment was clean, everything worked as it should, and it had all the essentials for a three night stay at a reasonable price. Liam had kindly provided bread, butter, milk and fruit to get us started, which was much appreciated. The location was easy walking distance to shops and local bus, and for the fit, only a 30 minute walk to the city centre and popular tourist sights. We had a meal at a great little local cafe, Soulful, about a 10 minute walk away in Stoneybatter. I misunderstood about the free parking and expected it to be off-street, but as it turned out there was ample street parking in the front of the building. The local neighbourhood area is not up-market and we wouldn't call the Victorian building or the studio 'quaint', but it wasn't unpleasant either. We did come across a few drunken people in the local shops and the occasional beggar, but the area seemed safe enough. We did a lot of walking during daylight hours without any incident.

This house is a beautiful Victorian building on a tree lined street adjacent to the Phoenix Park and and Botanic Gardens situtated just 10 minutes from the city centre.

There are 3 spacious and comfortable apartments The Samuel Beckett - Sleeps 5, The JAmes Joyce - Sleeps 6 and our recently refurbished and restored W B Yeats. The Samuel Beckett has a modern touch to it while we maintained a lot of the original features in our James Joyce and W B Yeats apartment that both have high ceilings, marble fireplaces, overmantles, coving and beautiful bay windows. We also have 2 studio apartments which are perfect for couples. The first is on the 3rd floor and is called the Molly Malone. This studio can sleep up to 3 people and has a double bed with a single pull down sofa bed. Then there is the newly completed Brendan Behan studio which can sleep 2 comfortably on the 4th floor. Both of these studios are bright and inviting with fully equipped kitchens and bathrooms.

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.

This means that guests can enjoy the delights of the city and surrounding areas with ease and return to the relaxing calm of our apartments after a hard day sightseeing or shopping.

This location is perfect for the traveller as there is a major supermarket within a couple of minutes walk as well as a bakery, pharmacy, restaurants, coffee shops and pubs all within easy reach. Some of the pubs provide traditional Irish music for your entertainment and are a great night out.

We provide a welcome pack with the basics such as bread and milk etc to get you on your feet. All mod cons are provided and there is linen and towels freshly laundered for your use. We also provide a hair-dryer and an iron and ironing board.
