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 quite busy. 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.
Svetlana's apartment in Dublin was a great choice for our visit. First, the location is ideal. Close to major sites likes Christchurch Cathedral and Guinness, and only a slightly longer walk to Temple Bar, Trinity College, St. Stephen's Green, etc. we especially liked exploring the Smithfield neighborhood, just on the other side of the river from the apartment and a bit less touristy.
We met Svetlana's brother in law for our check in. It was a quick and easy welcome to the apartment, and they even allowed us to get in the morning we arrived rather than waiting until the afternoon. The apartment itself is quite small, as to be expected in the city, and if you're more than one traveler you will need to share a bed. However, it was very clean and suitable for our three day stay. We were mostly out and about anyway, but it was the perfect spot to come back to each evening. I would recommend to anyone looking for a convenient and comfortable apartment for their visit.
The apartment was as described. However, we had to leave and only do 1 nigh vs 3 because there is a night club next door and it was not mentioned anywhere.
It seems that Svetlana was not aware that the theater next door had turn into a night club.
She refunded us one night.
If you do not mind the noise I would recommend this apartment.
Thanks again for your feedback, Laurie. As I mentioned to you, this was the first time I heard about a party at the theatre near the apartment (you could read other reviews). Tivoli theatre has occasional performances, when the street may get a bit noisy for an hour before the play, but it was never used as a nightclub! We tried to make your stay as comfortable as possible, however, these circumstances were out of our control to fix. Hope you had a great time in Dublin though!
Svetlana couldn't receive us, but sent his brother-in-law istead, who made everything easy for us. Her place is wonderful and near every single touristic site in Dublin
Svetlana's place was great! It is exactly as advertised and Svetlana and her brother were very accommodating when our flight was delayed. The location could not have been better. I would definitely rent this flat again!
Svetlana does a wonderful job of making guests feel welcome. Her directions were very detailed, and her place is easy to find - close to the main road near Christ Church. The apartment had several guidebooks to use as well as a lot of brochures on the different sights. There is a grocery store just outside the apartment complex, but Svetlana also had fruit, butter and milk. The apartment is very near Christ Church. The Temple Bar area and Guinness storehouse are both about 10 minutes walking distance. I would stay here again and recommend it to anyone. You can tell Svetlana puts a lot of thought and care into her guests' experience.
Perfect flat for a stay in Dublin. Very central, all-confort. Absolutely charming couple owing it. Just go there, no possible deception.
Great little apartment in a good location. Nice cafe downstairs around the corner. Svetlana and Dennis are good communicators and pros at this. I'd definitely stay here again.
