I will ONLY work with Mr. Pat when I vacation here

  • 5 of 5

This was my second trip to Dublin in less than 9 months. Previously I located the 3 bedroom apartment, which comfortably situated all 7 of us California Vagabonds quite nicely, and now my husband and I decided to go at it alone (with just 1 friend this time!). Immediately we turned to Mr. Pat for housing, as due to our previous experience he was a complete and utter JOY to work with, and his apartment was always well stocked and felt like home.

And let me tell you, i was far far far from disappointed with the smaller apartment. It was cozy yet roomy, comfortable yet sophisticated, and immediately felt like home. And what a home it was! Not only was it amazing, it was accessible, as I have a handicapped friend who easily maneuvered through the apartment with ease.

The shining star? Mr. Pat himself. He is kind, generous, patient and a dream to work with. After my first experience with him, I was eager to see what else he had to offer. Now after this experience, I will ONLY work with Mr. Pat regarding housing in Ireland when I go, which will be often. I will work around his rental schedule, and work around when he is available for me to be able to visit the Emerald Isle. He was that great. He is a true gentleman and a wonderful human being. You will feel like you are renting from a friend, and you will feel so grateful for the experience. Mr. Pat, thank you, thank you, thank you!

Light and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely Christmas weekend with our family in this flat. Pat was a most gracious host, meeting us on Christmas Eve as we got in and giving us a thorough orientation to the apartment. Since Dublin was rather quiet for the holidays, we did quite a bit of cooking for ourselves. The kitchen had everything needed for preparing a very nice Christmas dinner for four. A grocery close by made shopping easy. The weekend was rather grey and damp, but the large and abundant windows kept the apartment feeling bright and cheery nonetheless. Everything we wanted to see and do was within walking distance. We had rented a car, but left it in the garage, preferring to explore the city on foot. Overall, a great place to stay in Dublin.

Excellent quiet location near busy areas

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfectly located near all of the must see places in Dublin. Mr. Griffin was extremely helpful and accommodating to our needs, including giving us additional time to check out due to another Lufthansa strike (two years in a row--avoid that airline at all costs if you have tight connections). Mr. Griffin was extremely nice about our predicament. No complaints about him whatsoever! A great place to stay.

Great location. Property clean and well laid out for our weeklong stay. Host very accommodating.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was very clean, in a secure building. Just outside your door is a food market, various restaurants and places to grab post dinner drinks. For the finicky eaters the pizza/Italian restaurant next to apartment very good. The nice thing about the location was you could walk to most attractions or a short cab ride/light rail for those a little further out. But not in a hectic part of the city. Overall our host was very accommodating and would recommend this property.

Loved the Smithfield apartment

  • 5 of 5

This was a great stay. Pat was waiting for us with the keys. Very nice, good communication and easy transaction. The apartment was in a good area with easy access to Tram. We loved the Square and all the places eat and grocery shop. The apartment with huge balcony was lovely. No problems and enjoyed our stay in Dublin. Thank you

Super location and facilities

  • 5 of 5

Property maintained well. High standard throughout. Wonderful location, close to shop and restaurants and Jameson Distiillery!! Walking distance to City Centre and Temple Bar. Tram located close too.

Lots of information to help us plan our week.

Good WiFi. TV and Blue Ray player.

Two bathrooms and two well sized bedrooms. One bedroom had double bed and single bed, so ideal for us with teenagers. Kitchen had all we needed to prepare meals and washing machine meant we went home with only a few things needing to be washed!!

Handy concierge to leave bags on our last day and helpful info on Taxi services.

Thoroughly 'recommend for a brilliant holiday.
