                                                                                      5 of 5

It was beautifully decorated, maintained and lovely and clean. The amenities were excellent and fully considered everything we needed during our stay. The free parking was an added bonus and gave us the freedom to hire a car and travel further afield than Dublin city centre. The blue book in the apartment is full l of advice from the owner of where to eat, pub, shops, directions etc, it was extremely useful and helped us get our bearings. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening in The Temple Bar, and trying out the local restaurants. We would recommend visiting Howth, a pretty harbour village about a 15 minute drive from the apartment and if you are prepared for a longer journey the Giants Causeway is breathtaking. I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment.

                                                                                      Apart from having never stayed in such a beautifully restored, 200+ year old house before, another aspect that we really enjoyed about the place is its flexibility. We are a family with 3 kids, my daughter and youngest son, are 6 and 9, respectively. My eldest son is 15, so, he is not going to share a bed easily with his younger siblings - no problems. Having the 2 youngsters sharing the bed upstairs allowed us to split the different bedtime requirements, and put my eldest, downstairs on one of the futons - right in front of the TV with an Android box - problems solved. The wife and I enjoyed a couple of chilled wines in the courtyard during the evening and had a most relaxing time. I think that the access to lockable parking was a real bonus. It is so hard to get any parking in Dublin. The house possessed all the mod cons - everything new and of quality - and it was extremely clean. The shower is unlimited hot water and you could even take a bath if you chose. There was also a good supply of towels and linen for the place. The host, Jen, was wonderful. Greeted us with a basket of delicious essentials, including an array of cakes and scones with jam and butter. The kitchen is small for bench space, but she's added a beautiful oak and stainless steel kitchen 'Ireland' to the set up and that is all we needed (when we could be bothered to cook!!). Would definitely recommend this to anyone coming to Dublin, as the cost of a sterile hotel room was still nearly 550 euro, at a basic standard which was well below this, charged for parking and lacked all of the grandeur this place provides with its quirks, charm and great location.
