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.
This flat is located south of the Liffey, and just west of Christchurch and central Dublin, so you can walk anywhere in the city with ease. The flat is on the third floor (what North Americans call the fourth floor) but there is no elevator in the building. We were travelling with heavy suitcases, which would have presented a problem to me but Arte met us and thankfully lugged my suitcase up the stairs.
Svetlana had some lovely touches such as home-made cookies, Dublin travel guides, tea and coffee. The small kitchen is fully equipped. The shower works well, and soap, shampoo, lots of towels and a hairdryer are all also provided.
On Friday night there were several times when loud revellers out on the street woke us up, though there was no obvious bar or other such facility that we could see. The Tivoli theatre across the street was dark that night, so no idea where the noise was coming from.
The apartment is just lovely and comfy, within walking distance to everything, perfect for long or short stay in Dublin!
Svetlana and her boyfriend were kind and helpful and always replied to our messages.
We would definitely recommend this apartment...and host!
From my first inquiry right through our stay in Dublin, Svetlana communicated quickly and effectively. The apartment and the amenities were great, and the Christchurch neighbourhood is lovely. It was good to have parking available just outside the door of the fourth floor walk-up. All secure. The nearby nightclub can cause some extra street noise. Apparently it is only occasional, so just check with Svetlana when you book this comfy, cosy apartment.
The apartment was great and right by Christchurch and Temple Bar, which was fantastic for us. Arte let us in and gave us an explanation of the apartment and good tips on places to go. There weren't any problems during the six nights we stayed, and everything was nice and comfortable.
We arrived about 45 minutes late, but Arte was very understanding. Thanks for opening your apartment to us!
Svetlana gave us clear directions as to where the apartment is, also a phone number in case of problems. She was at work so her brother in law met us at the apartment gates and carried our large suitcase upstairs to the flat. He also explained how everything worked. There was tea coffee fresh fruit and milk there for us and the beds were made up ready. The flat was as described and in a great central location so we could walk everywhere we needed to go - we really enjoyed our stay.
Nice place to stay in Dublin: well located in the city center, the building is lovely, the appartment is well equiped and the hosts even provide some food for those who starve on the arrival. We received a warm welcom from the hosts who explained us all the details about the equipment and the quater. The only inconvenient was some noise and music from the theater / night club Thivoli nearby, but we don't come to Dublin to sleep, right ?
