About the property

Large 2 BR Apt - furnished to a very high standard. Sleeps 4 Adults/Family of

Beautifully decorated and furnished city centre apartment. The apartment can sleep 4 adults comfortably or a family of 2 adults and 4 children. The apartment does not accommodate parties of 5 adults or more. Comprises of 2 large bedrooms with large comfortable double beds, a sofa bed is available in one of the bedrooms which can accommodate 2 children or 1 adult (sofa bed is 120cm wide when fully out as a bed), 2 bathrooms, kitchen/living area and a balcony. Apt. is fully supplied with everything you will need (special requests facilitated if possible) - towels, linen, 'welcome pack' on arrival (containing some of essentials you will need - like dishwasher tablets, some washing tablets for clothes, milk, tea, coffee, spices for cooking). Apartment is in a very secure block - has 24hr concierge service and security. An underground parking space is available and included in the price. There are books and DVDs available to use in the apartment during your visit. A baby cot and high chair can be provided on request and we can probably rustle up a few toys for toddlers to save on your packing. Can arrange babysitting if required.

Restaurants, Bars, Entertainment: Temple Bar is quite close and within walking distance where you will find loads of bars and restaurants. Visitors with a particular interest in food will be interested to know that there is a Michelin Star restaurant located relatively nearby 'Chapter One'. It is worth a visit. Also within close proximity are the Gate and Abbey Theatre's - it is worth checking out their websites in advance of your trip to Dublin to see what is on while you are visiting. Dice Bar (just around the corner) is worth a visit if you are here at weekends - it is a very cool 'hidden gem' frequented by Dublin's hip and trendy. The Cobblestone Pub which is just a stone's throw away from the apt is also a really famous Dublin haunt and well known for it's traditional music sessions. It is a cosy spot that you could easily end up nestling into for the night

Children: Dublin Zoo is really close to Smithfield and a great day out - there are fantastic picnic facilities at the Zoo and we would highly recommend bringing a picnic. The restaurants tend to be overpriced and not great in terms of quality. The Phoenix Park is really nice for a walk or a cycle and Farmleigh House often have things on depending on the time of the year so would be worth looking at their website. The Ark Theatre in Temple Bar is a Children's theatre and often have events running for children. 'Imaginosity' which is in the suburbs is excellent for kids but would mean a bit of a trip (not longer than an hour from leaving the apt to arriving there). Children also love the Viking Splash Tour which is a land and water tour of the city. The Ghost Bus Tour is another hit with kids. Smaller children will enjoy feeding the ducks in St Stephens Green which has a city playground as does the park on Merrion Sq. Other attractions of note: Taytoworld (car required); Newbridge House and Farm

Shopping: O'Connell St, Henry St and Grafton St are all within walking distance and have great shopping. The Jervis St Centre off Henry St and Henry St location in general has many high street shops. Arnotts Department Store on Henry St is a good stop too. Lovers of 'vintage' clothing may find a shop or two around Temple Bar but also try 'Jenny Vander' on Drury St. Grafton St area again has many high street names and is home to the more up market Brown Thomas department store. Keen shoppers should definitely make a trip to the Dundrum Shopping Centre (you can get the Luas from St Stephens Green - it takes 20 min on the tram and you will want to spend a few hours at least there). Shopaholics may want to venture even further and visit the Kildare Village Outlet centre - take a look at their website, buses leave from the city centre daily and the trip is around 45min. Antiques lovers should take a stroll down Francis St which is home to Dublin's antique quarter.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say how well our trip went and how much the apartment made it all the more enjoyable.

I have tried to leave a review but can't work out how to do so, by all means though, if you can attach your own review, please feel free to post the following;

I would highly recommend staying here. We were greeted very warmly and given great and helpful advice. The apartment was very close to main areas/tourist attractions, good pubs and retaurants. The images show the apartment well. We were surrounded by lovely people in this area and the apartment really was lovely, clean, practical and cosy not to mention safe and affordable, beats a hotel anyday!! Recomended for all types of getaways!

Thanks again. Nikki and co.

Perfect clean apartment with great location!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for the four of us, with each couple getting our own bedroom and bathroom. Clean rooms, new kitchen and a lovely living room and dining area (even a balcony), so plenty of room for us all to hang out.

Like people before us, we really wanna give a big big thumbs up for the welcome basket in the kitchen! Arriving to cold beer, coffe, milk and buiscits is amazing after a long journey. Thank you guys so much!

Walking distance everywhere. We didn’t use transportation once. 2 minutes walk to Jameson’s distillery, maybe 10-15 min to the Temple bar area etc.

We would book this place anytime again and will definitely recommend it to our friends.

Recommend for a short term stay.

  • 4 of 5

I had the occasion to stay with three other ladies at Karen's property recently for a three night weekend stay in Dublin and we had plenty of room for the four of us. I found Karen very responsive and helpful with the booking and the information that she provided was clear. The location was very nice, secure and close to all things (including Jameson and Guinness), either by walking or public transport (stops close by), and the hop on - hop off bus stop was also very close by. There is a supermarket next to the complex that was very handy and it also had prepared meals and a coffee bar, plus in the area there were nice restaurants and a lovely bar. The concierge for the building was always helpful and pleasant when we had logistics questions. The property was clean and as pictured with all the necessary amenities. We didn't have a requirement to use the appliances (dishwasher/washer/dryer) while there, but they were all available to us. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to others travelling to Dublin for a short term stay. Only thing of interest that we noted, was that there is an office building it seems across the street, if we were there during the week days, we likely would have noticed that we wanted more blinds/shades on the windows, in-particular in the living room area. However - these Canadian ladies would not hesitate to recommend this property to others visiting Dublin for a short term stay. Thank you Karen.

Nice, well-maintained place a little far from the action

  • 3 of 5

This is a nice apartment, very clean, in a good building and very close to the tram, although it is more than one ride into the centre of town. You can walk to the main action in 25-30 mins. Owner had left coffee and tea and milk - nice but would be good to put soap in the bathrooms, as this is not something that most people carry with them from other countries. Washing machine was broken.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your feedback. The apartment is located at the heart of Smithfield Market an area which is has a very 'urban hip' feel to it. It is within walking distance from the city centre. This can be 10 mins if you are considering Temple Bar, maybe 20 mins to O'Connell St or 25 to Grafton St. The LUAS (tram) system is 1 min walk from the building and gives great access around the city as does Dublin bus which is equally just around the corner. The Hop on Hop Off Dublin Tour Bus also stops at Smithfield Square which is very helpful either at the start of your day or at the end of a long day touring the city. Thank you for letting us know about the soap, it should have been replenished and is normally provided. We apologise again for any inconvenience caused as a result of issue with the washing machine door but would like to also note that the problem was repaired within 24 hours of realising the problem.

Great location, spacious, clean

  • 3 of 5

Met what we wanted, but the apartment needs some attention.

Kitchen floor has broken tile, kitchen light is broken and several bulbs missing, no towels in kitchen, couldn't get dryer to work, instructions for tv were wrong, address for building not on building (have to look in door to see it), etc.

Owner's Response: Dear Barry, I am happy that you enjoyed your time with us and thank you for bringing these items to our attention. We are aware of the cracked tile on the kitchen floor which is not generally visible and covered by a large mat at present. We are always available to change bulbs if the problem is highlighted to us, we will also ensure guests are fully compensated in the event that any expenses for bulb changes are incurred during a visit. We will obviously replace now that it has been brought to our attention. Tea towels are generally available in the kitchen so perhaps there was an oversight on this occasion. The dryer is in full working order accommodating small loads and instructions are available in the machine manual which is located in the kitchen drawers. The TV is in good working order, we have not had any other issues brought to our attention regarding the instructions but will double check of course. The building is part of a large complex of apartment blocks which are all connected and located centrally in Smithfield Square, we do not control the signage. It is one of only 2 apartment blocks on that street. Best, Karen and Noel

Great neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed being close to the Cobblestone for great music every night. Also loved the L. Mulligan Grocer gastro pub within walking distance, the well-stocked market for breakfast and snacks, and the proximity to public transportation.

The apartment was perfect for 4 adults--a great base for our three nights in Dublin.

The LUAS (tram system) stops directly at Smithfield as does the Dublin Open Top Bus Tour. Also within walking distance are O'Connell St, Henry St, Grafton St (all shopping locations), The Phoenix Park (and Dublin Zoo), Hugh Lane Art Gallery (Parnell Sq). Kilmainham Gaol (famous historical disused prison) & The Museum of Modern Art are two tram stops away. Dublin Airport is 8kms, close proximity to main train stations. Large supermarket located below apt complex, leisure centre, cinemas close by. Local bars - Cobblestone Bar is famous for traditional music. Dice Bar a 'hidden' favourite hip and trendy Dublin bar and worth a visit if you can squeeze your way in at weekends.
