This apartment is located on the third floor of a quiet building. There are two lifts or elevators to the third floor from the entrance lobby. Because this building is located on a relatively little used stretch of one way street, there is little passing traffic so it is even quieter.
The apartment building is very secure and there are several layers of security between the front door and the door of the apartment itself which can add a sense of security to anybody travelling alone in a new city. There are two key controlled doors in the entrance hall and then a door to the corridor locked by keypad entry before you get to the apartment door which is also secured by lock.
Although it is a city centre location, there are numerous food shops and supermarkets very close by, as well as the usual raft of entertainment venues, restaurants and bars within only a couple of minutes walk and a multi screen cinema literally next door.
The trip from the airport to the apartment is only about 6 miles (10km approx), and the route is well served with buses, specialist airport coaches and taxis. A taxi from the airport should cost in the region of €30 or less for two people but you would be well advised to obtain a quote before travelling.
You are truly in the city centre, and are within walking distance of all the main city cente attractions. World famous Temple Bar is about a 12 minute walk, and glamourous Grafton Street and the south side are about a 20 minute walk across the River Liffey. They are currently building a direct tram line to Grafton Street and it's amenities about 100 meters around the corner from the apartment, making the south side of the city even more accessible. Trinity College, housing the ancient Book Of Kells is only 10 minutes walk away. The main theatres are also close by with the world famous Abbey Theatre just a couple of streets away off O'Connell Street, and the Gate theatre just around the corner on Parnell Square. The Olympia theatre is also a short walk away. For larger venues, The Point which houses the O2 is a short tram journey away, and the tram stop for The Luas is just a stones throw from apartment in Jervis Street.
If you want to travel further afield you can either catch the Luas or take the 20 minute or so walk to either Connelly Station or Tara Street Station and catch the Dart which is the name for the local railway and go northwards following the coast to visit the beaches in North County Dublin and see the lovely fishing village of Howth, or alternatively head south to visit Dalkey which is a lovely village on the south side. You will find along the route several places mentioned in James Joyce's famous writings, including the Martello Towers.
