Jen’s flat in Temple Bar was a dream come true. Having done some exploring of Dublin on foot, I can now say with absolute certainty that there is no place that could have suited me better. The location is perfect - there are no fibs on the page (or by me!) about how central it is to everything. Before check-in on my first day, I wandered aimlessly and was standing at the entrance to The Temple Bar in under five minutes. If I needed anything to sell me on the home I’d not yet seen, that did the trick! When my travel-mate and I made it upstairs, we fell in love with the flat. We each had a bedroom, both with dangerously comfortable beds (we napped the whole afternoon away), plenty space for our things, and the windows opened a crack so that we could hear the light rain and breeze. The bathroom is a great size and was perfectly clean! It had all of the towels, toilet paper, and soap we needed. Bonus: it smelled great, and so did we! The main living area was a personal favorite spot of mine. If ever I was awake alone, I’d set up shop on the sofa by the window and watch the lively street below. It was never loud in the flat, but it never felt isolated from the life of the city, either! I was able to visit every tourist attraction by walking. The pubs are just beyond the street, there are restaurants everywhere you turn, and places like Trinity College and Guinness Storehouse are an easy stroll. It was a real treat to be able to walk down to the River Liffey in my slippers. I never planned for it, but it was that close! It’s also a great navigational tool, if you aren’t able to pull up a map on your phone (like me, a data-less international traveler). Just downstairs are Queen of Tarts and Piglet, which are worth checking out. Jen is a superb host. She was accommodating and kind, and any time I had a question, she was quick to answer. Her guide to the flat was comprehensive and more than reasonable, so even going in at my most exhausted and overwhelmed from overseas travel, I did not worry about my stay. She made sure that my temporary flat mate and I had and knew everything we needed to, and it was as smooth settling in as it would be going home. If you are looking for a home in the best location, that feels safe, clean, and near impossible to leave, you’ve found it.
A group of five of us stayed here recently (three adults and two children) and we really enjoyed our stay. The apartment is in a great location and is every bit as comfortable and stylish as it looks in the pictures.
