My husband and I stayed here with another couple during our Dublin travels. We are so glad we chose Aviva View! Barry is a wonderful host! He warmly greeted us upon arrival at the flat, mapped out some restaurants and attractions, and even provided some Irish history! Barry is the best! We feel that Barry and Una went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. The flat perfectly accommodated us four adults. It is in a lovely area of Dublin very near the Dart and a Spar. For fairly nearby restaurants, we loved Searson’s, Paulie’s, and Herbstreet.

For a clean, comfortable stay, I would really recommend staying here! In fact, if I ever find myself in Dublin again, I hope to stay here again too!

Owner's Response: It was great to host your group because you had done the basic research on what you expected from your holiday in Dublin. This basic research, conducted beforehand, creates an essential ingredient for a good creative discussion on what you want and what Dublin has to offer. It was also motivational for us to get feedback on how you were enjoying yourselves as the holiday progressed. Your positive comments on the events you attended along with the good meals and the Irish Traditional Music were satisfying for us as your hosts. We in turn we’re appreciative of your feedback on eating places that were unknown and new to us. Thank you for the comprehensive review.

  • 5 of 5

Very much enjoyed our stay. We had our two adult children with us and the accommodation was great for 4 of us. It was clean and spacious. We enjoyed the pub across the road and the local amenities. The location to the city was close, but not too close! Definitely within a comfortable walking distance. Barry was great and had good information!! Would definitely stay again!

This is the place to stay when visiting Dublin. Barry met us and gave us a small tour around the area. It has easy access to the taxis and train station. The apartment is very comfortable and spacious. I highly recommend staying here..

Mooi appartement, vriendelijk gastheer

  • 4 of 5

Mooi ruim appartement. Jammergenoeg werkte 1 van de 2 toiletten niet. Wat luidruchtige omgeving. De ligging tov winkels , openbaar vervoer en centrum is prima. Luxe appartementengebouw. Attente gastheer. Compleet ingerichte keuken.

Iets meer haken om handdoeken op te hangen zou prettig zijn.
