Great place to stay. A little out of town. Ok with us. About 25 min walk. Felt safe even at night.
Happy with the apartment.
Great contact with manager.
Enjoyed our stay and loved the close proximity to all of Dublin's main attractions. We arranged for a driver to pick us up at the airport and it was the best decision! Our driver was extremely knowledgeable and made some fantastic recommendations! We had a great first trip to Ireland :)
Thank you so much for
your wonderful review.
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and our driver is very grateful for your kind comments also.
We look forward to welcoming you soon again.
Nice place and close to bus stop
When we arrived in Dublin, we took a cab to our residence which was organized by Liam and also our return to the airport, 35 euros each way. I must admit, I was surprised it was a murphy bed but it was comfortable. When we found the instruction booklet it mentioned what buses to take to get to the city center and other attractions. By bus it's approximately 10 minutes. We had all the amenities we needed and the location was near the bus route. which meant a 1 minute walk home.. This place was adequate for what we wanted- breakfast in and lunches for the day touring. A grocery store with 5 minutes was helpful. Liam and Fiona were helpful with anything we asked..
Thanks Kathy for your wonderful review.
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay.
The Murphy bed is comfortable and has a hotel quality mattress on it just the same as we have in all of our apartments.
We hope you can come back and visit us again sometime soon.
5 Day stay in Dublin
The location was great we were able to walk or take transit. Grocery stores close by were very convenient.
I think the listing should indicate that it is at the top of the house ie: 4 flights of stairs also that is a Murphy bed which impacts amount of space for your belongings and virtually no closet space .
Overall we enjoyed the location away from the city center.
4 day stay in Dublin
Unfortunately, the cleaner did not show to clean property but once Liam and Fiona were advised, they remedied the situation quickly.
The apartment is perfect for a short stay (3 days max). Very close to city centre.
There are 4 flights of stairs to climb to the apartment.
Thank you for taking the time to write this review.
Again my apologies for the mix up with the cleaning schedule.
I'm so pleased that it didnt' overshadow your stay with us and that you enjoyed our apartment and your time in Dublin.
Hope to see you back at Glencourt soon again.
All the best.
Fiona and Liam

This park is the largest urban park in Europe and houses Dublin Zoo and the presidential home and offices as well as a children's playground. It is a wonderful park to visit and spans over 1750 acres.

About Liam & Fiona Travers
I come from a family background in the hospitality industry. I grew up in Kildare which is about 45 minutes from Dublin and worked for many years in my parent's hotel there. I emigrated to New York for a number of years and when I returned in 1990 I purchased this property in Dublin City. As I am a qualified builder and carpenter I undertook to restore this house over a number of years and restore it to some of its former glory. As you can see from the pictures there are a lot of original features which I managed to retain and I am pleased that I can finally share them with people from all over the world. I am now living in Kildare again and am married with a daughter. As my parents before me I am committed to providing all of my guests with a wonderful holiday experience in a beautiful period house. I am available at all times for my guest either by phone or email and am happy to answer any query.
Liam & Fiona Travers purchased this Apartment in 1990
Why Liam & Fiona Travers chose Dublin Northside
I chose this location for the proximity to the city centre and of course the beautiful Victorian Redbrick lined North Circular Road. These properties are a feature of Dublin and are preserved by Dublin Council. The fact that the Phoenix Park and the Botanic gardens are within walking distances is an absolute plus, providing plenty of recreational activity. The Phoenix park is a wonderful asset just a few minutes walk away. So whether guests want to go for a jog or a walk or visit the Zoo this is the perfect place to do it. A wonderful place to unwind and relax and one of my favourite places to visit. Bike hire is available here also. Numerous pubs, restaurants are within walking distance and I feel that the house provides a sense of character and charm not matched by modern buildings and houses. Local coffee shops, restaurants and bars are all located within 10 minutes walk and are a wonderful way of sampling Dublin life all within easy reach. It's a mainly residential area and has every facility necessary to provide guests with a comfortable stay. There is a supermarket located just 3 minutes walk away that is open late and there is an excellent bus service right outside the front door which will transport guests to the city centre within 10 minutes.
What makes this Apartment unique
There are a number of benefits to staying in this property. Located close to the heart of the city of Dublin there is an excellent transport system by bus and light rail that means all of the sights can be visited with the minimum of fuss. The building itself is a beautiful Victorian property that has unique charm while offering all the modern comforts that a guest could expect. The location is ideal as it is quiet and peaceful while being convenient to all shopping, sights, transport, museums etc. that makes a holiday enjoyable. Located beside the Phoenix park which is Europe's largest urban park the traveller can have a taste of the country while still remaining in the city. There truly is something for everyone.
