About the property

Superb 2 bedroom luxury apartment, sleeps 4

This fantastically placed 2 bedroom apartment has recently been entirely renovated and refurbished giving guests a new kitchen, bathroom and living area. I am very happy with the finish on the apartment and I know that my guests will just love it!

The apartment is in the perfect location to explore the sights and sounds of Ireland's vibrant capital city. Offering safe and secure accommodation for 4 people (1 double bed & 1 bunk bed with doule bottom and single top). The extra accommodation is to provide familys with sufficent space (there is also a travel cot provided for infants), there is a maximum of 4 adults per stay. Fresh bed linen and towels are supplied. This apartment is also my home and as such it is kept to the highest standards allowing guests five star luxury within the ease and comfort of a home from home.

The apartment faces into a large courtyard garden that is ideal for relaxation and gives loads of space for kids to play. It also ensures that the apartment is quite while still in the centre of the action.

Satellite TV with DVD player and Wii entertainment system and a selection of board games are available for those lazy days! It is a 3rd floor apartment and there is a lift.

As the property is managed by the owner I am always available should you have any inquiries during your stay. As such I am always willing to accommodate you with regard to dates and prices subject to availability, get in touch and we'll do our best.

Please note that bookings made for dates directly preceeding the previous guest will always get preference, the apartment is not run by an agency and as such we must maximise its occupancy.

Local area: Everything for an enjoyable stay is at your doorstep, from pubs and clubs to concerts, art and culture.

There are great walks to be found in Phoenix Park (Europe's largest urban park). If you are thirsty after your long walk we can supply you with local knowledge of the finest watering holes the city has to offer!

The free Dublin bicycle scheme has been a great addition to the city and allows the freedom to explore further afield. There are several stations close at hand.

Should you have any special requests let us know and we will do our best to point you in the right direction, otherwise take your time to stroll around and enjoy all the city has to offer in the safe knowledge that you are only a stones throw from home. Enjoy your stay.

About Jonny

Hi, I am a self employed engineer who as it happens has a great city centre property where I lived myself for 10 years. I live in the same apartment block so I am always close by if you have any problems and Aliona, my fantastic houskeeper, always ensures that everything is in tip top order for your arrival.

Jonny purchased this apartment in 1997

Why Jonny chose Dublin

This newly remodelled and renovated property is in a fantastic location for anyone wishing to explore the city by foot.

What makes this apartment unique

The property offers fantastic value for money. This apartment has not been designed in order to maximise profits, it has been designed to my specifications to maximise my own comfort and now guests get the benefit of that quality.

great location

  • 4 of 5

this is a great location, away from the Temple Bar nightlife but close enough to get to all the fun. The one bed is comfortable; I understand one other one is not. The décor is fine. The kitchen is functional. The bathroom, however, has mold. There was mold when we arrived and by the time we left there was additional mold on the ceiling.

Perfect location but apartment needs updating! Smell needs sorting too!

  • 2 of 5

Will start with the good bits:

Location is perfect- so close to everything; within walking distance of pubs, restaurants, tram, train etc. Beds were also comfy and Apple TV was available on a huge tv. And that's about it.

Not so good:

The smell in the apartment (mainly in kitchen/living room area) was horrible. Dirty/mouldy/old food? Don't know how to describe it but it was horrible and didn't disappear throughout our stay. I had to bleach the sink in the kitchen when I arrived because it was dirty and smelly, mouldy in shower and on bathroom ceiling, had to constantly turn the heating up as temperature was set so low. Oven was filthy dirty so didn't attempt to use, some of the crockery was also dirty. Although beds were comfy the sheets were stained and had a hole in sheet in main bedroom. Carpet out in main hall of apartment building was loose so our 2 year old constantly tripped up.

Blinds in bedrooms don't actually fit (luckily we'd taken black out blind for the baby) so we had to hang a sheet up, hair dryer was slow. Sounds like silly things but a lot of small things seem to add up to the owner not really caring about who is staying in the apartment.

Things like no bin bags and limited toilet rolls also didn't help.

We use Owners Direct all the time (we have 3 other holidays booked this year through them) and we've never been disappointed but this apartment was definitely not as it was sold. What a shame!

Amazing location, right in heart of Dublin

  • 4 of 5

We (3 adults) stayed here for 3 nights over NYE. Very cute apartment, in an enviable location a stones throw from the Ha'Penny Bridge. We were able to walk everywhere as location was so central - lots of bars and restaurants on door step, or a short walk to any less touristy places you might have in mind.

As it is so central we couldn't avoid hearing some of the night-time party people on the street below during the night, so if you're a light sleeper you might want to take ear plugs - but that is probably true of any central Dublin hotel or apartment on the weekend/holiday days. If you want silence i suggest sleeping well away from the city!

Apartment owner Jonny was very helpful and responded instantly to any question we had. Apartment itself was very clean and had everything we needed. The only con I can think of is that there isn't a dining table so if you are planning on eating in a lot then this might not be the right place for you - but if you just need a base to explore the city from then this place is perfect for that! Apartment block also very secure and safe feeling. Thanks so much for a great stay!

Can't beat the location!

  • 4 of 5

Everything was as described and the check-in/out process went smoothly. The apartment is a great home base to explore Dublin. The location was really great. The apartment itself was in good condition and all listed amenities were there. The building itself could use some upkeep, the hallway had an interesting smell. Obviously, this is not in the hands of the owner and does not take away from my recommendation of this property. Thanks!!

Wonderfully located and comfortable flat

  • 4 of 5

Jonny was really quick to respond to all my questions. Fantastic location, close to all the sites and bus stops as well as walking distance from Connolly train station. Flat was really nicely decorated and bedding was comfortable. Kitchen was very nice. A bit pricey but worth it!

Owner's Response: Great review from Lia so thanks for that! The apartment pricing is based on 4 people sharing which works out at $45 per person per night. As someone who travels a lot value for money is hugely important to me and so I want all guests feel that is exactly what they have got during their stay. I hope you will agree that $45 to stay in a top quality city centre apartment does exactly that! Cheers, Jonny

Very Nice Stay

  • 4 of 5

Excellent location, across the Liffey from Temple Bar. Plenty of restaurants very close by. The apartment is showing some signs of age and will need a refurbishment soon, but it was very comfortable and is a good value compared to hotels in the area. The kitchen needs a microwave, but no other shortcomings noted. Jonny was excellent to work with and was very quick to answer inquiries. One problem was the listed address; the apartment is on Lower Liffey Street and not on Bachelor's Walk avenue, even though the apartment complex is called Bachelor's Walk. This really confused our cab driver. Overall, a very nice play to stay.

Owner's Response: Many thanks to Mark for such a good review. I just need to address a couple of points he made; firstly all the furniture (including mattresses) are within one year old except for one of the sofas which is two years old and all are in great condition. The kitchen and bathroom are two years old and show no signs of wear and tear, nevertheless I was glad to see he said it was very comfortable. The other thing is that I give very detailed instructions to every guest for their arrival, directions from the airport, by car, walking or by train, I even recommend what to tell a taxi driver to ensure there are no delays in guests arriving at the apartment, I can only guess that these were not read (I've never heard of Bachelors Walk Avenue). That said I'm delighted that Mark enjoyed his stay as it is genuinely important to me that guests feel that they have got good value for money. Cheers, Jonny

Luxury apartment, unbeatable location (sleeps 4/5).

Superb 2 bedroom Dublin city centre luxury apartment. Quite and secure in the heart of Dublin city, this luxury apartment has all that a discerning visitor could want on their doorstep, restaurants, pubs, live music, concerts, superb shopping, history and culture.

Enjoy the short stroll to 'Trinity College' or 'Christ Church Cathedral'. The National Gallery, National Museum and numerous galleries are all within easy reach, as is The Abbey Theatre along with numerous other theatres, cinemas and venues. If shopping is your thing we are located 100 m from the shopping haven of Henry St. and only 400 m from the famous shopping mecca of Grafton St.

When it comes to night life this luxury apartment is only 100 m from the hub of Temple Bar, however you can still get a quite nights sleep by returning over the Ha'penny Bridge to peace and quite after a hectic night out.

Simply put this luxury apartment could not be in a better located.

Golf: Dublin is well serviced with private and public courses (subject to green fees).

There is also the world famous K Club Ryder Cup course nearby (40 min by car), and the beautiful Druids Glen course in Wicklow (40 min by car).
