Great location, would definitely stay again

  • 4 of 5

Our family of three stayed bit over a week at The Connemara Girl. Location of the apartment was best possible, basically in the center of the city, still in quiet street. It was clean and have all of the equipment one would need.

Couple things should still be mentioned. If you are going to use the washing machine, check out beforehand that it will work properly. We had little trouble with it. Secondly, I would personally appreciate dry spices in kitchen. I mean basic stuff, salt, sugar, black pepper etc. Now there was nothing, and it is sort of stupid to buy them just for a short trip. Well, it is not that so uncommon, so we were prepared for that :) Just to mention. Also sharp knives would be much nicer to cut with. Small things, but still.

We did not met Liam in person, but William was great host. He explained everything of the apartment and was really nice to chat with. Overall, communication was perfect. Everything from first questions of the apartment, to the end of the trip was first class. I would recommend this apartment to anyone. In our next trip to Dublin, the address of our stay will be the same.

Wonderful Apartment Near City Center in Dublin

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with our three young children, stayed here for four days and we absolutely LOVED it! The apartment was very clean and came equipped with every amenity that we could have possibly needed. The apartment is a quick walk from the city center and we enjoyed walking all over the city. Liam and his staff were extremely courteous. I would highly recommend staying here and hope to someday return with my family!

As Promised... Great Rental!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a 4- night stay at this place and it worked perfectly for our group of 5. The location was perfect! Walking distance to all transport and right by the Spire so we never got lost. Liam and William made our communication and check in so easy. They are great hosts! I'd stay here again and again.

The apartment, the building and the location were all superb! Four of us (all senior adults) stayed for four nights and found it comfortable, clean and well equipped. I'd have to dig deep to find a complaint..the only one (and its really not a negative) is it takes three keys to get into the apartment; a main gate at the street, the building entrance and the apartment door. On the bright side, one fells quite secure. :-)

We were met by Liam promptly as promised, and received a warm welcome and local guidance. Would stay there again for sure.
