Our home is a very unique place in Dublin, Myself and partner run a website and food project called 'News of the Curd' our home is a central place for all things food and drink in Dublin, most weeks we host a 3 course meal to the public. If you happen to stay with ourselves on that evening you are more than welcome to partake! We are both very active in the community and very social. Kevin a life time Dublin knows all the spots and sights to make your stay amazing! Our apartment is inside of an older factory it's warm and welcoming. It always smells of good food. The kingsize bed comfortably fits two people! There's a big auld wardrobe for you to keep your stuff and balcony to look over the street. Bed linen and towel provided. LGBT friendly household. You are no more than 10 minutes away from anywhere in the City! We live above a nightclub and the weekends can be a bit intense, read our reviews and see if it suits you!
You will have your own private en suite bathroom, access to our sitting room and kitchen, though the kitchen is always a bit busy.
Interaction with Guests
We also live here in the room across the hall, we are both very chatty if you want to chat. With suppers each week we are used to having new people around. If you happen to have a meal you will get to interact with some of the most socially aware people in Dublin, find out whats on and make the most of your stay.
As we are in the centre of Temple Bar, the weekend can be on the noisy side, midweek it's pretty quite, less the few shouters. We live two floors above a nightclub, which depending on what you are used to, can be a little loud, so just incase we can give you a set of ear plugs. Depending on what music the club has on, on a particular night there can be quite a bit of bass
Dublin is great for getting around. You can walk almost anywhere, we are about 30 seconds away from a public bike rental station and about 15 min walk from most major city attractions.
We both work very long and busy days, so if at night coming in or going to not make too much noise. We are a non smoking apartment but there is a balcony in your room which you can puff away to your hearts content. No one other than the people booked in can enter the apartment!
I couldn't have asked for a better experience!! It was our first time in Dublin for my friend and I, and we had such a great time and staying with Kevin had a huge part to play in that (Robyn was away at the time) The location is just so convenient and it's right where you want to be! I read some feedback before we booked about noise in the early hours of the morning but we didn't have a problem with this at all! Possibly as we stayed Wednesday-Friday, but even so, a little noise is a small price to pay for the location of the apartment! The apartment itself is lovely and you feel right at home as well as safe! Kevin was a wonderful host and was helpful and friendly! (Hope your music and food in the dark thingy went well!) if I return to Dublin I would absolutely love to stay in this apartment again, I can't fault it! Thank you again! X
If you're after a lively place to stay in the centre of Dublin, Robin's place is where it's at. Surrounded by cafes, late-night bars and restaurants and theaters, nothing beats it location-wise.
The private room is clean and has everything you need to have an enjoyable stay - having an en-suite is great! The windows open out to a small balcony overlooking the street, so you can let the air in and feel connected to the outside world.
That said, there was at least one night when the bar downstairs turned up the bass and yes, a party really kicked off. Kevin at the apt was kind enough to preemptively provide earplugs, which definitely helped. So yes, Temple Bar is renowned for its lively nightlife; it lived up to its reputation!
Finally, Kevin there is a gentleman, scholar and a mighty fine cook. I LOVED the breakfast he made with his friend one morning, not to mention, the impressive collection of coffee wares and beans in the kitchen. If you want to spend a few days with a talented bunch, live local, get the inside word on what's happening around town and laugh a lot, stay here!
I felt at home the moment i was welcomed inside the secret little door outside the alleyway. Kevin is a chef and as into food as I am - and music - so we had lots to talk about. He helped with amazing Dublin-based suggestions and despite being very busy, he made time for me. I left Dublin with a far richer experience having staying there; I left Dublin feeling I'd made a new friend.
Robin and Kevin were the most lovely hosts. Kevin gave me a tour of the best coffee shops on my first morning and both were extremely welcoming and invited me to have dinner with some of their lovely friends. I hadn't quite realised that the nightclub however would be such a big problem - so bad that I couldn't stay on my final night and had to make alternative arrangements and stay elsewhere. Monday to Thursday this place is great, but the bass from the nightclub made sleeping impossible between 12-3am, even with earplugs.
I loved the flat and the hosts but I wish they'd been more explicitly clear about just how bad the noise would be! I live in Central London so have a pretty high noise tolerance.
Great apt- Robin was kind enough to accommodate my early arrival. Much obliged!
Robin and Kevin were both super friendly and really helpful during our stay with them. The room was a good size and clean and tidy, and the location was perfect for us.
That being said, if you're looking to stay somewhere quiet - this is not the ideal place to stay on the weekends.
As many have mentioned before, their flat is directly above a large nightclub, that is open from 10pm -3am on the weekends. As we were there over St Pattys, it was also open the Monday and Tuesday nights. The music is exceptionally loud and shakes the floor/ walls, and everyone stands/ smokes directly outside the window all night, so it is exceptionally loud and almost impossible to sleep until the club closes at 3am and everyone leaves.

I love to explore new places and meeting people. I'm very interested in food: my boyfriend Kevin and I run a Supper Club from our apartment in Temple Bar in Dublin.
I work for an animation company here in Dublin.
As a guest I am quiet and tidy with minimum requirements.
