  • This place is great - very clean and very safe in the heart of Dublin. It is close to popular bus stops and walking distance (1 mile?) to the train station. I walked to the Guinness Storehouse, Queen of Tarts, Trinity College and more. I highly recommend it!

  • We had an amazing stay at this apartment. The perfect location--and perfect sized apartment. Giuseppe worked around our last minute booking to make an enjoyable stay for us. The living room was sizable with a dining table, and sleeping area for two. The bedroom had a queen size bed, and plenty of space to walk around. The bathroom--by European standards was spacious. Hot water and nice water pressure in the bathroom.
    As for the location, you are in the central part of Dublin. Everything is at your finger tips. The lively Temple Bar District and Grafton Street within easy walking distance. It's not a matter of IF but WHEN I'll stay at Guiseppe's place again!! Brilliant.
