Comfortable apartment in great location
Our family of 5 enjoyed our stay in this apartment, with a cute balcony in a convenient location. The owner and caretaker are very helpful. Highly recommended!
Thank you for your positive comments. I hope you and your family enjoyed your stay in Dublin and come back to visit again sometime.
Well located to visit Dublin center, nice welcoming
This appartment is comfortable for a family, well located at around 20-25 mn walk from Dublin center.
Well secured. good contact with Patrick, and very nice welcoming by Randy.
The only inconvenient is the noise in the bedrooms because on the street ...
Great place to stay
Really comfortable apartment which is within very easy distance of the centre. Very clean and well equipped. Emailed Patrick and always got quick reply. Randy was polite and helpful, we were allowed to drop our bags early after arriving so we didn't have to lug them around town. Would highly recommend staying here.
Thank you for your positive review and I am delighted you had an enjoyable stay.
Convenient location. Randy was very pleasant and helpful.
The flat was as described. I wouldn't choose this location again. The bedrooms are on the street and the street is very noisy. The apartment is surrounded by many buildings that are in need of repair. Garbage was littered on the street as well. Randy was the highlight. He checked us in, showed us how everything worked, and were we had an issue with the shower he came right over.
exceptional deal in central Dublin
This is a really good deal in a central location, a clean, comfortable, well-presented two-bedroom flat in a development with parking behind a Georgian façade not far from Parnell Square. It has no double bed, other than the fold-out sofas in the living-room, but if that suits you it was really the best deal I found. I was grateful, and surprised, it was available and felt the same after being there for three days. It would be difficult to find a more hospitable owner than Pat Collins, even in a nation of hospitable people. I mentioned that the day we arrived was my daughter's birthday and he had the place festooned with balloons and sweets and a cake. It has a little terrace, light and is very secure.
Thank you so much for your positive feedback. it was my pleasure to make you and your family feel welcome and to surprise your daughter on her birthday. You probably meant to mention that there are also two bedrooms in the apartment, one with two single beds and one with a bunk bed. I hope you and your family make a return visit.
