I'm Gráinne, originally from Co. Kildare and raised in a small family run hotel. I am married to Tim who is now retired from An Garda Siochána (Irish Police).
Tim and I purchased this property in 1986 and lived here for a number of years until our family grew and we needed to relocate.
We loved living in this area and have many happy memories of our first home here.
I have consistently worked in the hospitality industry and always wanted to provide holiday accommodation here as I felt this to be an ideal location. I have been lucky enough to have realized my dream.
I pay particular attention to detail and set the highest of standards in cleanliness and customer care.
Our aim is to ensure that you really feel at home and comfortable in our apartment and we will endeavor to assist you in any way with any aspect of your vacation, so that you get the most out of your trip to Dublin.

Assuring you of our best attention.
Grainne. purchased this apartment in 1986
We chose this location because of close proximity to downtown Dublin.
We loved the period red brick property with large rooms.
Fantastic large enclosed rear which is very private and unusual for a city centre property.
Easy access to any part of the countryside and still only 10 minutes from downtown.
Nice residential old part of Dublin with true Dublin characters in abundance.
Settled community with lots of nice neighbors whom you can be sure will speak to you if you bump into them.
All facilities such as banks, pharmacies, supermarkets, butchers, gas station, restaurants, pubs, hair and beauty salons, dry cleaners, etc on the street.
Super public transport with the Luas and Dublin bus.
The most unique benefit is the location.
Only 10 minutes from downtown Dublin with that real at home feeling when you arrive back after your day out.
The house was built in the 1800's and has a lovely spacious and tranquil feeling to it.
I love the large rooms and high ceilings with the original coving and open fire which is really cozy on a Winter's evening.
In the Summer time, we enjoyed many barbeques out back, and found it peaceful and quiet.
One huge benefit and highly unusual in a city apartment is the amount of both indoor and outdoor space.
My boyfriend and I stayed at the Bay apartment last week from late aug through Labor day weekend. It was heaven. Beautifully furnished. Clean. Everything you need for a comfortable and relaxing stay. We rented a car, so the spacious yard with gated fence gave us peace of mind that it would be safe.
The appliances in the flat were so convenient. We did laundry almost everyday and the clothes came out wonderful. I cooked and found everything I needed at my fingertips...well except for pepper!! Lol!! The bathroom is big and spacious and I was surprised by the excellent water pressure and plentiful hot water!! The bedroom was also large and had plenty of outlets so we could charge our phones and things. The living room was cozy and we were able to spend our last nights relaxing in front of the fire.
Grainne and Tim were attentive to our needs, while giving us plenty of privacy. Tim sent a man spot quick to fix the hose leak on the shower and Grainne had her caretaker put keys in the lock box when we accidentally locked ourselves out!! She was always available by text to answer our questions including where to get fireplace supplies! The gentleman at the back of the property even remotely opened the back gate for us one morning!!
Inchicore is a wonderful little village. We felt comfortable walking around even at night. The Italian restaurant in town was amazing! Romantic and delicious
food. The village is close to local attractions such as Guiness Storehouse, Drimnaugh Castle and Kilmainham Gaol and the M50 motorway, so we were able to go anywhere we wanted with
This apartment is so comfortable and amazing, we felt at home within hours and hated leaving yesterday morning! We will definitely stay here again upon a revisit to Ireland. Everything was just perfect!!
More Review Details
The apartment was clean and ready for us early; Grainne was most accommodating! She went out of her way to be sure we had everything we needed, and helped us with great suggestions and directions. Would definitely stay there again!
My husband and I spent 4 days in Dublin to celebrate our wedding anniversary and always prefer to stay in a "home" rather than the standard hotel. The apartment here was perfect and as advertised---- clean, charming, comfortable and easy to get around via the Luas tram and bus. The Inchicore area itself was nice and we loved being next to the church and just a few minutes from the food market, The Black Lion pub and an excellent Italian restaurant. We also were within walking distance of the Kilmainham Gaol and the Guinness Storehouse. The owners made arrangements to have us picked up at the airport and Rory was waiting for us upon our 5:30 am arrival. After flying all night, it was nice to be greeted by such a friendly person who made us feel instantly comfortable. Valerie (the apartment manager) also met us and gave us some helpful tips and other highlights to explore in the city. The apartment was equipped with free Wi-Fi which made it easy for us to make arrangements, check e-mail, etc. All in all, it was a lovely stay and we would highly recommend it. The only minor complaint was the bed was a little hard for our taste. That said, we slept well each night after full days of exploring! Thanks again for making this a wonderful trip.
Excellent communication with Tim and Grannie before we arrived with detailed and clear instructions. Upon arrival we were pleased with all facets of the home. It had everything we needed for our family and was central to shops and transport. The best part was Valerie and her friendly and informative tips for exploring the wonderful city of Dublin. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend to anyone!
Very nice and clean apartment. Valerie, who greeted us, was very helpful. We had a small problem that was solved quickly and efficiently. Really recommend the Italian restaurant down the rd for a meal close to home. About an hour walk into Dublin, which we did one day. The tram is close and convenient to get into Dublin.
I stayed in the Grace Gifford cottage with my husband and we found the apartment to suit our needs perfectly. The property was safe, private and very well kept. Everything in the apartment was pristine and polished to the last. We found the location to be excellent, as it was easily accessible with public transport. The owners and their neighbour were more than helpful, answering any queries we had immediately.
I would highly recommend staying here and am looking forward to my next visit!
I would like to thank the staff for being so friendly and helping us make the most out of our trip to Dublin
We booked the "Grace Gifford Cottage". We arrived after 8pm to an unpleasant musky odor. We called the owner regarding issues with the oven heating as well as filthy dishes and the dishwasher filter that was clogged with rotting food and broken glass. The owner apologized for the dirty dishes and explained she had a different cleaning lady then usual but that she should have checked the kitchen better. She explained that they were out of town and that she would send a neighbor over regarding the oven. The neighbor arrived and he started fixing the hot water? We explained we didn't have a hot water concern, it was the oven. Apparently, it is just really slow to heat. Our daughter came out of the shower to say the water was cold. Our son then said he took a cold shower. We followed the directions in the instruction manual and no hot water. Clearly, the neighbor has had to help with the hot water situation in the past - he had also informed us that the owners were out of town at a funeral. I took photos of all of the filth issues in the kitchen and after boiling water to wash dishes as there was no hot water I spent over an hour cleaning to prevent my family getting communicable diseases such as hepatitis. As there was no hot water my husband and I we were not able to shower. At 11:44 pm I sent an email to the owner with photos of the filth, informed of the time I had to clean and the hot water issue. I expressed that I had heard they were out of town for a funeral and that I was sorry for their loss. The following day we did receive an email that upon arriving at the end of our day to call one of there staff who would help with the hot water. The staff apologized for the kitchen and said it was no way to start a vacation. A plumber was arranged for the following day. We were not able to meet with the owners until the morning of July 24. I inquired as to compensation for the filthy kitchen as well as there not being hot water for 2 days. The female owner offered the refund of the cleaning fee. I expressed it was not acceptable, I would expect 1-2 days return of the rental fee. I further stated that we had been more then understanding and respectful of their situation given their being out of town at a funeral. She disagreed and deferred the decision. Her husband was more understanding and refunded 1 nights fees. The Grace Gifford Cottage was not what we expected and we were not invited to review the rental.
