Lovely Dublin Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 13 from the Philadelphia area enjoyed our week long stay at "The Architect Designed House". Simon was very helpful in the planning of our visit to Ireland. Simon answered all our questions very promptly. The house is quite comfortable for large family gatherings. Simon and his staff provided us with all the amenities one would need (paper products, coffee, tea, sugar, milk etc...) when first arriving at the home. We were even treated to scones one morning! Vicky was at the house when we arrived and explained all we needed to know about the house. House is very close to Dublin, without the noise of the city. Taxi and buses were quite efficient, arriving within minutes. Botanical Gardens, Glasnevin Cemetery, groceries, liquor store and great pubs all within walking distance. I would highly recommend Simon's home to anyone looking for an exceptional place to stay in Glasnevin. Simon also had ordered us our taxi and van for our departure flight...right on time. Thank you Simon for an outstanding job from you and your team! I also highly recommend the Wild Rover Tours, we took a private bus tour to Galway, Belfast and Kilkenny areas. It was such a fantastic experience touring around Ireland with Sarah our guide. Again, many thanks Simon.

Family stay at Glasnevin house in Dublin

  • 5 of 5

My family of 12 with 6 children and significant others was greatly accommodated by the extremely affordable house we found on AirBNB in Glasnevin, Dublin serviced by Near City Rentals. The house was perfect, slept 12 comfortably, huge kitchen, living room and dining area and 2 full baths but best of all was the beautiful outside area with gorgeous flora; great gathering place for socials. The house is fully stocked with everything you need for bed linens, toiletries, and kitchen needs. All you have to bring is food and beverages. They have TV and Netflix available which is included. You just have to be mindful of the neighbors and keep it quiet after 10pm.

There are several shops and pubs within walking distance (e.g., The Tolka House, The Wash Woman, etc.) and a pizzeria.

Near City Rentals was terrific and extremely responsive to any questions or needs that we had. We locked ourselves out of the house and they were there in 15 minutes to let us back in. They also let you know everything there is to see or do in the area (pubs, restaurants, food stores, tourist sites, etc.) and transportation as well. If you're visiting Dublin, and want to save money as opposed to a hotel, contact Near City Rentals about this house or similar rentals.

Beyond our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Glasnevin was absolutely wonderful! Our house managers Fabi and Vicki made our stay very easy. We had 13 people in our party and there was plenty of room. We had a small issue with the washer but Simon and his team took care of everything ASAP. We would definitely stay again in the future!!
