All of our apartments have been named after famous Irish authors or poets which gives each apartment its own individual personality and gives guests the chance to experience the what it must have been like to live in a Victorian house many years ago.

We have just completed work on our W.B. Yeats and have restored it to some of it's former glory with original features such as the marble fireplaces, coving and a beautiful bay window overlooking Dublin city and mountains.

There is a double bed and a single bed in the main bedroom and there are 2 pull down sofa beds in the living area. This apartment sleeps 6 comfortably.

The James Joyce is located on the ground floor and has the same beautiful features such as the high ceilings, coving and marble fireplaces. This apartment sleeps 6 with 2 double beds in the main bedroom and a pull down sofa bed in the living area for 2 also which means it can sleep 6 in total.

The Samuel Beckett was our first apartment that we developed and has a more modern feel to it but provides every comfort and convenience that you would expect of a luxury holiday let. There is a double and a single bed in the main bedroom and a double pull down sofa bed in the main living area which allows for a total of 5 people to sleep comfortably.

About Liam 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 parents 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 Travers purchased this apartment in 1990

Why Liam Travers chose Dublin

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. 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.

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 excellant 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 while being convenient to all shopping, sights, transport, museums etc. that makes a holiday. 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.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

It was a pleasure to be in Liam's apartment. Although its small we were 4 (2 adults and 2 children) and it was enough for us. It has got everything you need for your stay. It's next to the bus stop so you don't have to walk to much to be in the apartment from the bus and if you want you can walk to the centre, we did it with my 2 daughters and it was just a walk. If I return again to Dublin I would repeat and if someone asked me for an apartment I would recomend Liam's one! Thank you!!!

Tranquillamente a dublino

  • 4 of 5

Siamo stati a dublino 5 giorni e abbiamo soggiornato in 3 persone nell'appartamento Melly Malone, di proprietà di Liam Travers. Siamo stati veramente bene, la stanza è carina e molto pulita e abbiamo anche potuto usufruire di tè, caffè, pane e frutta al nostro arrivo. Il centro della città si raggiunge facendo una bella camminata di circa mezz'ora intercalata da una buona colazione tipica in uno dei locali che si trovano lungo il percorso. La sera abbiamo sempre preso il bus che impiega 10 minuti. Dovessi consigliare amici...lo farei sicuramente.

A nice stay

  • 4 of 5

We had an amazing time at Dublin. The flat was perfectly clean and convenient for a three-adult party. You can find everything near-by. Liam helped us whenever necessary. It's a good place to stay. A good value for money. Advices given on Liam's website are worth it. Thank you for this accomodation.

Un studio très agréable et fonctionnel

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons apprécié notre séjour: le studio est très bien équipé et confortable; le propriétaire a été très attentif et a toujours répondu très vite à nos questions. Il est très facile d'aller au centre ville depuis le studio, même si nous n'avons pas compris pourquoi le prix du ticket de bus était différent selon les conducteurs !

Nous vous recommandons le transfert (taxi) studio-aéroport organisé par le propriétaire, c'est très pratique !

Nous recommanderons ce studio, car nous y avons passé un très bon séjour.

Merci Liam !

Good solution for your stay in Dublin !

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment with my wife and our 9 years old boy for a week, and it was perfect !

It is located about 20 minutes walk to the city center, or a bus line is just in front. There is also a big Tesco at 2 minutes walk, that is very useful after a long day of promenade across Dublin !

Small but full equiped, the apartment is perfect for 3 persons, and our neighbours in the building during our stay were very kind !

Only one regret : we couldn't meet Liam while we were in Dublin... Maybe next time ? :-)

Car: not necessary

This house is a beautiful Victorian building on a tree lined street adjacent to the Phoenix Park and and Botanic Gardens situtated just 10 minutes by bus from the city centre.

There is an excellent public transport service right outside the front door so a car isn't necessary.

There is a major supermarket just 3 minutes walk away as well as a pharmacy, bakery, butchers, medical centre and a laundromat for guests that need this facility.

There are cafes, pubs and restaurants all within easy walking distance (max 10 minutes) and one pub in particular plays traditional Irish music nightly and has to be visited during your stay. It's an old Irish pub and people gather nightly to play here. Not to be missed!

There are also excellent restaurants so if you don't want to cook you could pop into L. Mulligan's Bistro (check out the review it got in the NY Times), Plan B, Cucina, My Thai and various cafes for that all important cup of coffee and chat.

We have eaten in all of these establishments and we couldn't fault any of them so rest assured that you won't be disappointed.

If you plan on eating in the city then it's only a short bus ride or walk to find a wealth of restaurants and places to eat that will take your breath away. The quality and standard of food in Dublin not to mention the variety is second to none so there really is something for everyone.

There are also some takeaways nearby so if you don't want to cook or if you don't want to venture out this is an option also.

Following is a list of the some of the sights you would enjoy in Dublin.

All are within easy reach of our property and while there are many more than listed here we thought we would give you some to start with.

Top 10 sights close to our apartment

1. Phoenix Park - Europe's largest urban park and houses Dublin Zoo is just a 10 minute walk

2. Guinness Storehouse - 20 minutes

3. Trinity College - Houses the famous and beautiful Book of Kells is only 10 minutes by bus

4. The National Botanic Gardens - 15 minute by bus

5. The National Gallery of Ireland - 15 minute by bus

6. Farmleigh House - also in the Phoenix Park which is a 10 minute walk

7.St. Patrick's Cathedral - 15 minutes by bus

8. National Museum of Ireland - 15 minutes by bus

9. Kilmainham Gaol - 15 minutes by bus

10. Jameson Distillery - 10 minutes walk

These are only some of the wonderful sights that are on our doorstep.

Each apartment has information on the fantastic things to do and see while in Dublin and of course we are happy to recommend other things to see and do while you are here.

Excellant tourist offices are also dotted throughout the city which can provide information on day trips, tours and other excursions that might be of interest.

Finally we want to assure you that we take great pride in our house and our apartments. We are committed to providing a quality stay and I have personally restored the apartments myself over the last 5 years.

Cleanliness and value for money are our priority and we aim to provide each guest with wonderful memories of a holiday in Dublin in a wonderful restored Victorian house.

We look forward to meeting you.
