Excellent apartment

  • 5 of 5

Bernadette has thought of everything to make this apartment home from home, clean and bright and well equipped. We used the Luas, the bus and the Dart all week they were all easily accessed from the apartment. There were books and leaflets with ideas on what to do, and the welcome goodies were a nice touch too. Thank you Bernadette for allowing us to stay in your lovely apartment we will come back again to see some more of Dublin.

Wonderful home base in Dublin!!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was exactly as pictured and couldn't have been more perfect for our home base in Dublin. It is close to public transportation (Luas) and an easy walk to the shopping areas. Just north of the Liffey, it was a quick walk to our favorite pub, Brazen Head (do try the mussels!). The apartment was warm and cozy and beautifully equipped; Bernadette has left no detail to chance. We had umbrellas, thick, fluffy towels, warm duvets and a fully equipped kitchen. This was, by far, the best apartment we've rented through VRBO/Home Away and can't wait to to go back! Thanks, Bernadette, for your amazing hospitality!

Well located flat just outside Dublin city center.

  • 5 of 5

My mom and I did a holiday weekend in Dublin, and this flat was perfect for our needs. Bernadette's flat is located in Smithfield, a neighborhood just past the hecticness of city center. We took the Luas tram everywhere; there is a stop just four blocks away. The apartment was clean, warm and added bonus to be on the top floor (with elevator). While the neighborhood appeared plenty safe, the complex is gated as well for added security. Would stay here again!

Owner's Response: Many thanks for taking the time to review your recent stay at our Dublin apartment. It's great to hear that yourself and your Mom enjoyed yourselves and that The Hardwicke was perfect for your needs! That's always what we want to hear from our guests. If you decide another trip from the Windy City to the Emerald Isle is on the cards we certainly hope that you will return to stay at number 95! Cheers for now! :-)

  • 5 of 5

Good location with everything in walking distance.Comfortable and well equipped,very clean well maintained.All home comforts you need.The welcoming milk,cakes and crisps on arrival was a nice touch.Bernadette was very helpful and early check in and late check out meant we could spend more time with family.We couldn't recommend this apartment or Bernadette to highly.Were hoping on our next visits that we can stay here again.We will be recommending to our friends.

The best!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed three nights and felt right at home. Bernadette met us on arrival and showed us everything we needed to know. She even left us with a welcome package of coffee cake, milk and orange juice, The apartment was spotless and nicely furnished, and the bed was super comfy. Great location, too! Could not recommend more highly!

We are within easy walking distance of many of the main city attractions such as Trinity College, Temple Bar, the Guinness Store House, Dublinia and Dublin Zoo. The Luas (Light Rail) Station is just around the corner from the apartment and this connects in just a few stops to both Hueston and Connolly Stations and also to the O2 arena. There are shops, supermarkets, restaurants and a cinema within a few minutes of the apartment, and the well known Cobblestone Pub where you can listen to traditional Irish music 7 nights a week, is just a block away from us. A car is not necessary for your stay at our property, but if you choose to arrive with a car we offer secure underground parking at no additional cost. Dublin Bike Scheme also has stations on Smithfield Square which means you can keep fit as you see the sights of the city!
