Beautiful place to stay.
This is a beautiful house with a mixture of old and new. It is well stocked with hairdryers, coffee maker, washer-dryer and all the conveniences of your own home. We were able to walk to the grocery store, the bus stop to downtown Dublin, and several restaurants,
We had 11 people and there was more than enough room for visiting and sleeping. The driveway was large enough for us to park our 2 rented vehicles.
The weather was cold, rainy, and then snowy so we could not enjoy the dining area or the patio area. If the weather had been warm we would have loved to sit outside and use the outdoor stove.
The owner and manager were great. The owner emailed promptly when I had a question and the manager was available when we needed her.
I would definitely recommend this house to anyone needing a large home.
Lovely Dublin Home
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.
A lovely house for our group of 9
Good location and size. Nice kitchen for self cooking
Spacious house right around the corner from the Botanical Gardens. We had plenty of room for our party of seven. Simon was very accommodating promptly taking care of unexpected problems. We had a great time in Dublin!
Family stay at Glasnevin house in Dublin
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.
This home was perfect for our large group. Clean, beautifully designed and decorated. Within easy walking distance of shops, restaurants and pubs. Simon was so helpful and responsive to any questions we had. We didn't want to leave! This rental was the perfect house for us, we will be back.
The location is ideal as it is within walking distance to a host of attractions, including The National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin Cemetery and Museum, in addition to the famous Gravediggers traditional tavern and tapas bar. With a host of local shops, cafes and bars you will find this location a great home away from home.
