My husband and I are not city people, so a Malahide location was perfect for us. It is even better than it looks in the pictures. The kitchen is well equipped, the bathroom is luxurious, the bed is very comfortable, and the location is superb--right on the water. All of the shops in Malahide are a short walk from the flat. We spent 7 days. Our flight arrived well after midnight, but Joe met us at the flat in person to go over all the features of the place. He recommended some great places to eat and to shop in town. We were greeted with a beautiful gift basket with delicious treats and the fridge was stocked with some basic staples so we had coffee and tea in the morning. The DART train is a 5 min walk and a 20-30 min train ride to Dublin and all the sights. This allowed us to enjoy the busy sights of the city, but return to the quiet coastal town. We spent a couple days touring Malahide and enjoyed it very much. Joe recommended that we explore Malahide Castle and Gardens, and it was a perfect start to our holiday, and both are just a short walk away. The sandy beaches are also just a short walk. Our perfect trip concluded with Joe driving us to the airport--a very nice touch, since we had to be at the airport at 6:30am. My husband and I felt very spoiled and would highly recommend this property to anyone.

Lovely location with access to restaurants and bars in walking distances. In the case where a taxi is needed there is a taxi rank right in front of the apartment with at least 2 cars there at all times. Within my stay at the apartment I had no problems at home and would definitely stay there again.

Our extended family of 9 stayed here for 2 nights (we wish we had booked many more nights) and loved it! It is in a fantastic location surrounded by lovely restaurants and convenient little grocery stores. It is just a short walk to St. Stephens Green, Book of Kells, and Grafton Street. The apartment is exactly as it is pictured here - very clean, huge rooms, gorgeous views, massive windows, and very well equipped. The three balconies are lovely and all have furniture to sit and enjoy the views of the surrounding buildings. Mark and Matt were a pleasure to deal with - Mark answered all questions quickly before arrival and Matt met us at the apartment upon arrival. The elevator to the 3rd floor was very convenient for our luggage and the building itself was completely secure with security codes to access each door. We will definitely stay here again if we return to Dublin. Infinitely better than staying at a hotel.
