Nice apartment in the middle of everything

  • 5 of 5

I would first like to note that the living space was bigger in person than we expected judging from the photos so that was a pleasant surprise. The beds were comfortable and we did not have any issues with water pressure or temperature as noted in previous reviews. We enjoyed lunch at Herbstreet and Dinner at HQ very much. Since we did not rent a car, we purchased a 72 hr Hop on Hopoff bus ticket to get around and that worked very well. Thank you very much for sharing your home.

Cathal and Gina’s apartment in Dublin was wonderful. Perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for touring Dublin. We walked or jumped buses and light rail making a car unnecessary. Cathal and Gina left essentials like bread and milk ready for us. We would definitely rent again and highly recommend this awesome apartment.

Wonderful Apartment in Dublin

  • 5 of 5

We throughly enjoyed our stay in Dublin. The apartment was very comfortable for four adults. The living room has space to visit or watch TV. There is a small balcony that we used everyday to enjoy the unusually warm weather we had during our stay. The neighborhood is quiet, especially at night. There are no loud bars or street noise in this area. It is possible to walk to many of the places of interest, or there are many bus stops on the street. We wouldn’t hesitate to stay here on future visits to Dublin.

Great Dublin location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying only a couple of blocks from the Liffy, and a short walk to the convention center. I was able to walk to the conference, and my wife and kids did lots of touring each day. The accommodations were clean, comfortable and very safe, and the hosts answered our questions by email within minutes. We forgot the adapter for our computer charger, so Gina and Cathal brought one over for us. Between the graciousness of our hosts, and the general friendliness of Dublin, we had an excellent family holiday.

Excellent Location

  • 4 of 5

Accommodation were as advertised. The apartment was in an excellent location, within walking distance of restaurant and attractions. Appreciated the fact that all basic food item were supplied. Didn’t have to rush out for milk, bread, butter etc. because it was all supplied. Would recommend this apartment if visiting Dublin.

The rejuvenated Docklands of Dublin is a great place for you to base yourself while visiting Dublin. Close enough to the major attractions yet quiet enough for a good nights sleep. There are plenty of good restaurants, bars and convenience stores practically on your doorstep. If you are feeling more adventurous why not try Wake Boarding or the Viking Splash Tour which are both just around the corner. To make sure you don't miss out any of the attractions why not take one of the many bus tours which offer two day tickets and a hop on hop off option so you can spend as long as you like exploring our great city. We particularly enjoy Kilmanham Jail which is full of history the Guinness Hop Store, home of the Black Stuff and Whiskey Corner (Whisky in Scotland) home of Jameson in Dublin.
