I’m renting my entire apartment in the great central location of Portobello. Recently renovated, my place has a nice modern feel to it and is within walking distance of Dublin city centre – St. Stephens Green is just 10 minutes away.
The apartment is nice and spacious with good light and comfortably sleeps 4 people in 2 double beds.There’s also two good sized bathrooms (1 ensuite) so no queueing in the morning!
There’s a separate living and kitchen area that’s been recently renovated and includes 4 ring electric cooker & oven, fridge, microwave, washer/dryer, lots of storage space and all the kitchen equipment you’d need to cook and have a quiet night in if you don’t feel like availing of any of the restaurants in the area. Help yourself to anything in the cupboards, I live here when it’s unoccupied so the basics are all here.
Guests have full use of the apartment – TV, Wifi, DVD player, iron, hairdryer etc. Parking can be arranged if required but I’ll need a little bit of notice so please contact me for more details.
I’ll be there for a meet and greet on arrival and can answer any questions you have about the apartment and the area. I’m at the end of the phone for any troubleshooting and work locally most days so never too far away if needed - otherwise make yourself at home!
Portobello itself is one of the most vibrant, up and coming areas in Dublin with loads of amenities right on the doorstep. Restaurant-wise, there’s everything from cheap and cheerful to michelin star places a 5 minute walk away. There’s lots of great pubs, coffee shops, tea houses, delis and shops all within a few minutes as well, and also not forgetting the location right on the Grand Canal, a famous Dublin landmark.
Access to public transport is a 2 minute walk – buses and the green line LUAS tram are right around the corner (Charlemont stop) and there’s also a Dublin Bike stand 20 metres from the front door. For taxis, just walk out to the main road and you’ll never be waiting longer than a minute or two to hail one; alternatively I’d recommend downloading the Hailo taxi app for taxis to the front door.
There’s also access to the Aircoach for transport to and from the airport on Leeson St Upr (near canal) which is about a 10 minute walk or 2 minutes in a taxi. Taxis to the airport if you book in advance shouldn’t cost you more than 25-30 euro.
Basically my apartment is right on the canal at Portobello bridge and this is a good reference point to keep in mind for navigating the transport links. The closet tram stop (see above) is on the canal, as is the Aircoach for airport transport.
There’ll be a detailed information booklet here for when you arrive.

We had a wonderful stay at Wayne’s flat. We did not actually meet Wayne, but Áine, his girlfriend was very accommodating and helpful. The flat was great, very clean and a perfect size for our family of two adults and two small children. It was very pleasant and perfectly equipped with all the normal kitchen utensils, so we did not have to go out for dinner every evening. Áine had bought supplies so we did not have to go out shopping for our first breakfast – among other stuff the nicest coffee from Wall and Keogh just around the corner. Portobello is great and in a walking distance to center and Temple Bar - even for small children. There are nice shops and restaurants in the area, and it is quite in the evening. We truly recommend Waynes place!
Wayne was an awesome host! He was very accommodating and helpful. The apartment was exactly as described and everything was clean. It was also very nice to have a secure parking spot for the rental car while staying. He also had an assortment of guidebooks, tourist info, and take out menus that were of great help. Would definitely stay again :)
Wayne was an excellent host and provided us with a lot of insightful information. He was more than generous in providing information about the area and made some great suggestions. The apartment is located in an ideal location with many unique places to dine and also has lots of excellent tea shops. The apartment is very cozy with all the necessary amenities and is very quiet despite being so close to the center of Dublin. I would highly recommend Wayne's place to anyone planning a trip to Dublin
Wayne was great! his house was VERY clean, and a great size for 4 guests! My only regret was not staying longer! He made everything really easy and was very accommodating!
Nous avons passé un agréable séjour à Dublin. Votre appartement est bien situé et le quartier est calme. Accueil chaleureux de Wayne qui parlait un peu trop vite pour nous français. Adresse à recommander. Cordialement.

What a fantastic experience all around so where to begin?!
Áine and Wayne couldn't do enough to help us make our stay in Dublin wonderful. Firstly, they accommodated us for an unusual check-in time and made us feel comfortable immediately, the way old friends might after they haven't seen you in a while.
Our first impression of the apartment was that it was clean, well equipped and tastefully decorated, perfectly suited for our family. A fresh bunch of flowers were set in a vase on the table and the kitchen was gratuitously stocked with a few basic essentials. A lovely surprise, and a testament to the lovely couple's expert hospitality and thoughtfulness, was a bottle of Prosecco to help us toast our impending nuptials, to be held in Dublin that week. They even left us a card wishing us well on our wedding day!
The neighbourhood is ideal for 100+ reasons. It is set off of the Grand Canal and a stone's throw from Camden Street and all the fun stuff there. There are a couple of Dublin Bike stations nearby as well as one of the oldest bakeries in town, the Bretzel Bakery, around the corner. We love Portobello for its ease into town as well as its proximity to town, Rathmines, the Charlemont Luas and walks along the water.
We cannot recommend the apartment, Áine and Wayne enough. If you're reading this post now and trying to find a place for your visit to Dublin, look no further!
Great apartment, clean, comfortable and with good standard. Wayne was a nice host, very welcoming and helpful. We definitely recommend it!
We had a great stay at Wayne's. He had some food and drinks provided, we didn't even have to go out for breakfast after our first night, which was great.
Wayne was a very welcoming host! The apartment was so clean and nice, it felt like staying at a hotel with great smelling sheets, soft towels and flickering candles. Lovely!
We spent a wonderful weekend in Wayne´s flat. He is a very friendly person, gave us a few interesting recommandations and let us feel at home.
The flat is perfect, nice neighborhood and not far from town centre.
I can highly recommend him!
Great place to stay in Dublin! Wayne was fantastic showing me around the place and making sure I would feel at home. The location is great, just a quick walk to City Centre, Ranelagh and Rathmines. The house is in great condition and very comfortable.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
