Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Dublin - Smithfield Market Apartment

Large 2 BR Apt - furnished to a very high standard. Sleeps 5 Adults/Family of 6

Beautifully decorated and furnished city centre apartment. The apartment can sleep 5 adults comfortably or a family of 2 adults and 4 children. The apartment does not accomodate parties of 6 adults or more. Comprises of 2 large bedrooms with large comfortable double beds, a sofa bed is available in one of the bedrooms which can accommodate 2 children or 1 adult (sofa bed is 120cm wide when fully out as a bed), 2 bathrooms, kitchen/living area and a balcony. Apt. is fully supplied with everything you will need (special requests facilitated if possible) - towels, linen, 'welcome pack' on arrival (containing some of essentials you will need - like dishwasher tablets, some washing tablets for clothes, milk, tea, coffee, spices for cooking). Apartment is in a very secure block - has 24hr concierge service and security. An underground parking space is available and included in the price. There are books and DVDs available to use in the apartment during your visit. A baby cot and high chair can be provided on request and we can probably rustle up a few toys for toddlers to save on your packing. Can arrange babysitting if required.

Restaurants, Bars, Entertainment: Temple Bar is quite close and within walking distance where you will find loads of bars and restaurants. Visitors with a particular interest in food will be interested to know that there is a Michelin Star restaurant located relatively nearby 'Chapter One'. It is worth a visit. Also within close proximity are the Gate and Abbey Theatre's - it is worth checking out their websites in advance of your trip to Dublin to see what is on while you are visiting. Dice Bar (just around the corner) is worth a visit if you are here at weekends - it is a very cool 'hidden gem' frequented by Dublin's hip and trendy. The Cobblestone Pub which is just a stone's throw away from the apt is also a really famous Dublin haunt and well known for it's traditional music sessions. It is a cosy spot that you could easily end up nestling into for the night

Children: Dublin Zoo is really close to Smithfield and a great day out - there are fantastic picnic facilities at the Zoo and we would highly recommend bringing a picnic. The restaurants tend to be overpriced and not great in terms of quality. The Phoenix Park is really nice for a walk or a cycle and Farmleigh House often have things on depending on the time of the year so would be worth looking at their website. The Ark Theatre in Temple Bar is a Children's theatre and often have events running for children. 'Imaginosity' which is in the suburbs is excellent for kids but would mean a bit of a trip (not longer than an hour from leaving the apt to arriving there). Children also love the Viking Splash Tour which is a land and water tour of the city. The Ghost Bus Tour is another hit with kids. Smaller children will enjoy feeding the ducks in St Stephens Green which has a city playground as does the park on Merrion Sq. Other attractions of note: Taytoworld (car required); Newbridge House and Farm

Shopping: O'Connell St, Henry St and Grafton St are all within walking distance and have great shopping. The Jervis St Centre off Henry St and Henry St location in general has many high street shops. Arnotts Department Store on Henry St is a good stop too. Lovers of 'vintage' clothing may find a shop or two around Temple Bar but also try 'Jenny Vander' on Drury St. Grafton St area again has many high street names and is home to the more up market Brown Thomas department store. Keen shoppers should definitely make a trip to the Dundrum Shopping Centre (you can get the Luas from St Stephens Green - it takes 20 min on the tram and you will want to spend a few hours at least there). Shopaholics may want to venture even further and visit the Kildare Village Outlet centre - take a look at their website, buses leave from the city centre daily and the trip is around 45min. Antiques lovers should take a stroll down Francis St which is home to Dublin's antique quarter.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say how well our trip went and how much the apartment made it all the more enjoyable.

I have tried to leave a review but can't work out how to do so, by all means though, if you can attach your own review, please feel free to post the following;



I would highly recommend staying here. We were greeted very warmly and given great and helpful advice. The apartment was very close to main areas/tourist attractions, good pubs and retaurants. The images show the apartment well. We were surrounded by lovely people in this area and the apartment really was lovely, clean, practical and cosy not to mention safe and affordable, beats a hotel anyday!! Recomended for all types of getaways!



Thanks again. Nikki and co.

Great Location and Comfortable!

  • 5 out of 5
Following up on the last review (we were the other couple)...this apartment was in a great location in Smithfield. Right across the way from the Jameson Distillery (stop #20 on the hop on/hop off bus). We took the bus from the airport upon arrival and only walked a short distance to the apartment from where our stop was. Since we arrived early in the morning we were able to drop our luggage off with the concierge as the apartment wasn't available for check-in until 3PM. The owner, Noel, greeted us and walked us through everything. The apartment was very comfortable and had all the amenities, although we never really figured out the washer that was also the dryer! The location and the price were right on target. We walked to Temple Bar and several other neighborhoods, that's how centrally located this apartment was, plus there were some great pubs very close by. I've already recommended this VRBO to several people who will be heading to Dublin in the near future. Thanks Noel and Karen for your hospitality...we had an amazingtime!

Great Place, Great Location, Exceptional Hosts!

  • 5 out of 5
There were four of us (two couples) in our group and I have to say we really enjoyed the apartment and the location. Karen was very responsive with my emails and the variety of questions we had. Noel was a wonderful host, welcoming us to the apartment, walking us through the operation of the appliances, and recommending some local places for dinner on our first night in Dublin. He also went above and beyond by helping the other couple with a lost luggage issue (one of their suitcases didn't make the initial trip with us from Chicago to Dublin). He allowed them to use his phone to call the local Aer Lingus agency and then coordinated with the concierge for receipt of the luggage once it arrived - very helpful and greatly appreciated!! As other reviewers have mentioned, the apartment is centrally located - we either walked or used the hop-on/hop-off bus to go everywhere in Dublin. Groceries, amenities and several decent restaurants are very close by. We will definitely return if and when our travels bring us back to Dublin! Thanks again for your hospitality and consideration!

Family vacation

  • 5 out of 5
My family and I stayed at the apartment for 10 days. We came to Dublin for the Penn State football game. Their were 5 adults and the apartment was very comfortable. The beds were comfortable,the location was perfect. We rented a car and it had a parking spot which was great. Their is a coffee shop right below the apt. Also their is a supermarket within a few steps. The temple bar area was within walking distance. Great pub the Cobblestone is right their. We did some day tours with a company Karen recommended they were great. Karen responded to all my emails and Noel was their to meet us even early since we were jet lagged. I would highly recommend this apartment it was perfect.

Wonderful Stay in Dublin

  • 5 out of 5
We really enjoyed the apartment and the underground parking was a huge plus. Karen was very responsive with emails and Noel was a wonderful host, helping guide us into the garage and even helping carry groceries up for us! The apartment is very centrally located - we walked everywhere in Dublin. Groceries and amenities are very close by. Plenty of room for our family of five. We had a good time at the Jameson Distillery just across the square and the Guinness Brewery Tour about 10 minute walk from the apartment was great. We barely used our car - although we had an enjoyable day traveling around the beach communities to the south and north of Dublin (Dalkey and Howth). We will return if and when our travels bring us back to Dublin and congrats on your new addition to the family!

Lovely City Apartment

  • 4 out of 5
It's always excellent to feel that you're in good hands. Ease of booking with Karen and attention from Noel at beginning and end of our week +1 day stay in Smithfield Market, Dublin made it all a breeze. We are a family of four with 2 kids (teenagers), and have always found that an apartment beats a hotel hands-down. There are many pluses for visitors: the Third Space Café downstairs is bright, cheerful, with good coffee and an excellent meeting up spot. The Smithfield Market location is terrific -- you can walk to anywhere and yet feel that you're in an interesting neighbourhood with a good market and probably the best cinema I've recently been to (the Lighthouse, really, go there). We had plenty of towels and the apartment itself was well set-up for vacationers, with the right sort of dishes and implements (we usually made breakfast). Also, very safe and quiet. Any very minor problems (we accidentally switched off the hot water) could have been easily dealt with had we contacted Noel immediately (though the error on our part happened the last day, so we weren't bothered). Thanks to Karen and Noel for the lovely stay!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review and delighted you enjoyed your trip to Dublin and stay in Smithfield. You are right about the Lighthouse Cinema, probably the best cinema in Ireland. We are always there to help with any questions or queries that our guests may have. Best, Karen and Noel.

FANTASTIC APARTMENT

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at this apartment for a long weekend. Everything from the ease of booking with Karen to the very warm welcome from Noel made the trip stress free. The apartment is in a great location a short walk from the centre of town although there are lots of good bars/places to eat beside the apartment.

We travelled with my 11 month old son and the apartment is great for babies - lots of space for them to crawl about and play with the toys Karen and Noel have thoughfully left. We made use of the babysitting service - thanks to Katia (she was wonderful, so friendly, and put me at ease right away about leaving Lewis so we could enjoy our night out). I wouldn't hesitate to recomend her to other parents considering staying here.
