About this listing
Nice, cosy and bright one bedroom apartment available to rent in the very heart of historical Dublin city centre. The apartment is located on the 3rd floor of the building, Christchurch and Dublinia are less than 5 minutes walk and it will take you about 10 minutes max to get to Temple Bar and City Hall. It is also facing a Tivoli theatre, which hosts some shows and music performances from time to time, and the street may get very noisy. If you walk in the opposite direction, you will find yourselves in front of the Guinness Store House within 10 minutes. The apartment block itself is in a very secure development. As it is off the main street, you would not need to worry about the traffic noise.
There are all the things you need in the apartment: from fresh bedlinen, towels and toiletries to cooking utensils (such as plates, bowls, knives and forks, glasses, a frying pan, a pot, and even a corkscrew!), so that you don’t have to depend on eating out each time. We also try to leave some basic food for you to have in the morning, like tea, nice ground coffee, some biscuits, cornflakes, but in case you need something else, there is always a Spar shop just around the corner from the apartment. We also provide a washing liquid for the washing machine, so that you can do your washing during your stay.
There is a big flat screen TV if you would like to watch some Irish channels and free wifi internet available, as well. Unfortunately there is no IPod docking station there, but I left a stereo for you, as well as a big collection of various CDs/MP3s to listen to and relax.
The heating that we have is storage heating, which comes on at night and releases the heat throughout the day.
This apartment is perfect for a single person and a couple, however, there is an option of having a third guest sleep on the sofa bed, which can be converted into a sleeping place if you wish. However, do notify us in advance that you will have a 3rd person staying with you, as we will need to prepare extra bedding for them.
It would take roughly 50 mins to 1 hour to get to our apartment (depending on the transport and the traffic). There are direct buses to the airport running within 5 minutes walk from the apartment. The 747 (6EUR single, 10 return) goes to and from Dame Street/ Christchurch. The 16A (2.75EUR single) goes from Georges Street.
We like to know a bit about our guests before any bookings are confirmed, so please be willing to swap a couple of messages. Also, it is important that you notify us at least 2 days in advance about your flight details and if possible, text us once you land in the airport.
We ask you to provide a security deposit reserved via AirBnB before your arrival. Your deposit will be returned to you on your day of departure if everything is in order.
Our check out time is before 12 pm and a check in is after 3 pm to make sure we have enough time to prepare the apartment for the next guest. In any case, we will do our best to accommodate early check ins depending on whether there were guests staying the previous night or not.
It is sometimes possible to rent an apartment for less than 2 nights. Please send your inquiry with the dates that you need, and we will get back to you.
If you are happy with the apartment, please feel free to make the booking straightaway, as we have our calendar updated on a regular basis :-)
Finally, we will be happy to answer any of your questions, give you all the advice you need on places to see around Dublin, entertainment and tips on the best places to eat, to make sure you have a great stay. Bear in mind, that English is not the only language we speak, so you won't be lost in translation! :-)
As we mentioned before, the apartment is located in a quiet and safe area, so we ask you to treat the neighbours with respect, no parties or excessive noise. At no times smoking or pets are allowed in the apartment.
No cleaning fee is charged on arrival and the cleaning is expected by guests at the end of your stay. There is no need to do a thorough scrubbing of the shower, the floor, etc, but please do wash up after yourselves, empty the bins, do the dishes and clean surfaces in the kitchen, clean the bathroom and make sure you leave the apartment in good shape when you leave. Please do not wash the bedding or towels, because mixing colours can damage them and we will take care of it anyway.
We were met by Dennis and he was friendly and had all the information we needed. The apartment was as shown on the advert and the location suited us perfect.
appartement sympathique, plein de charme et bien équipé, l'accueil par le beau frère s'est bien passé. La description correspond aux lieux. seul bémol, nous avons eu droit à un concert de musique techno le premier soir qui, heureusement c'est vite terminé.
Great host, close to downtown, felt welcome, will go back next year again !
Svetlana's apartment was great - located just a short walk from everything and in a gated apartment complex. Svetlana was unable to meet us, but here brother Dennis met us and was very helpful. We would definitely recommend staying at Svetlana's while in Dublin. Thanks again! Jon and Gina.
Svetlanas Schwager hat geduldig auf uns gewartet, obwohl wir mehr als 2h später ankamen als verabredet. Mit dem 747 Airlink Bus kommt man einfach bis Christchurch wo sich die Wohnung befindet (Achtung: genügend Zeit einplanen, da dieser meist bereits voll ist). In 10-15 min. kann man problemlos bis zum Trinity College/Temple Bar/ Grafton Street laufen. Das Brazen Head (ältestes Pub in Dublin) ist auch nur wenige Gehminuten entfernt. Die Wohnung war sehr gemütlich! Es hat alles, was man für einen Städtetrip benötigt, ist zentral gelegen und in einer Art geschlossenen Wohnanlage, was es sehr sicher macht. Würde jeder Zeit wieder in Svetlanas Apartment.
Although the apartment seemed a bit old and the bathroom was not brand new, it seemed overall clean, well-organized and had the basics for a comfortable stay. We really felt at home while we stayed at Svetlana's place. It takes less than 10 min to the High Street. There is a small but good grocery store Spar right arond the corner. I'll definitely recommend this place to my friends who want to visit Dublin.
Perfect spot to explore Dublin from! Easy to find, very clean and well set up. Definitely recommend!
