There is a communal garden, which is gated,and can be accessed by our guests. If car parking is required, it can be organised in a secure car park by contacting Ann or Bernadette.
Ann will meet people when they arrive, and show them around the apartment. We live a few doors down from the apartment and we also work on Mountjoy Square, where we have offices - so we are available most of the time. If people are staying for more than 3 days, we pop in to say hello and Ann usually tries to meet guests as they leave to make sure everything has gone well and learn any lessons to improve the experience for future guests.
Mountjoy Square is in the heart of the North Georgian Core of Dublin City. It comprises a beautiful square of Georgian Houses set around a park in which there is a great children's playground.
We are within walking distance of the Gate and Abbey Theatre (our national theatre), the Dublin Writers Museum, the Joyce Centre and a host of other attractions. The Hugh Lane Art Gallery (Dublin's municipal gallery) is a 5 minute walk away. This part of Dublin is steeped in history, and features in Joyce's Ulysses. The first Dail (Irish Parliament) after liberation met in no 3 Mountjoy Square and every building has a unique history. The Mountjoy Square Society (of which we are members) regularly organise guided tours of the square and we run events for Open House and Culture Night (in September every year).
The Chinese quarter is in Parnell Street (a couple of minutes away on foot) with lots of up and coming chinese and vietnamese restaurants. This area is vibrant and wonderful and our visitors really enjoy staying here.
You can get around Dublin, which is a very small city, on foot; You can also do a bus tour of Dublin starting in Cathal Brugha Street, three minutes walk away from our apartment.
We have a great local italian restaurant and a local Irish restaurant - in quiet locations and guests often like to eat there on the first night of their arrival, if they are tired. Croke Park , the home of Gaelic Football and Hurling, is just round the corner and boasts a great museum. Our botanic gardens, Dublin Zoo (in the Phoenix Park) are a short bus ride away and the fascinating and little known Glasnevin Cemetary, where many of our historical national heroes are buried, is a short bus ride away - and it has a fantastic museum and geneology section.

Easy check-in and out, at extended times. Nice apartment with a good location and easy access to the rest of the city. Communication was effortless and prompt. Recommended.
Absolutely perfect, the apartment was super nice. granted you would not be entertaining a group of 60 in a hurry, but who needs that during holiday’s. the apartment was clean, nice and bright and the soda bread was great. Nothing to remark whatsoever.
Bernadette and Ann were great and particularly helpful hosts. They went the extra mile to allow us early check-in and Dublin travel and event trips across the NYE period. The apartment was clean, bright and perfect for the three of us for two nights. Im happy to recommend it to other travellers!
The home was just lovely. Spacious, clean, and had all the necessary amenities. There was also an extensive list of places to eat, and things to do, which made the trip that much better! Bernadette was also incredibly kind and patient as we had massive delays arriving in Dublin. Overall, big thumbs up - highly recommend.
The apartment was as described. The host was very acommodating on letting me check in early and had bread, milk and orange juice in the refrigerator for me when I arrived. Very good value. I would recommend her for your stay in Dublin.
My fiance and I just returned from a 4 night stay in Bernadette's lovely apartment. It's located in a quiet residential neighborhood. The apartment was nicely appointed, with a few staples stocked in the fridge upon our arrival including delicious freshly baked soda bread.
Our flight into Dublin was quite early but Ann was very flexible around our timing and greeted us upon our arrival. This is the perfect place to stay for anyone looking to have a quiet place to retreat to after a long day of enjoying the city of Dublin.
Bernadette est une hotesse formidable.Apres notre premier contact par mail nous avons communiqué comme de bons amis par SMS;Accueil chaleureux a l'appartement à l'heure convenue dès notre arrivée à l'aéroport;L'appartement est agreable,calme et à 10 minutes a pieds du centre de Dublin;Bernadette nous a présenté le plan et les points d'interets de la (website hidden) moindre probleme nous avons pu la joindre;Ce sejour a vraiment été délicieux et Bernadette avait meme commande le soleil!!!
Me & my colleagues enjoyed our stay at Bernadette's flat. Will recommend to my friends and would book again, if traveling to Dublin. Thanks Bernadette & co!
Great apartment in convenient location - truly was a ten minute walk to downtown. Very helpful and friendly hosts, with a warm Irish welcome complete with soda bread! For those not familiar with Dublin, the neighborhood was not touristic; people actually live and work there, so that could be a bit of a surprise (the apartment itself was clean, quiet, and VERY safe).
Bernadette and Ann offer a great apartment in a convenient location. Highly recommended.
