Self contained 2 small bedroom apartment in Dublin 1.
The apartment has 2 small bedrooms with 2 double comfortable beds, please note that there is not much space around the beds, so the bedrooms are small.
There is all so a small dining/ kitchen area with a fitted kitchen and you can prepare simple meals no problem as there is a 4 ring hob and an oven, a toaster and a kettle, a small fridge/ freezer, a washing machine, a small table.
In the living area, there is a very comfortable double sofa/ bed. We have got great feedback from previous guests as being a confortable one.
Please note that the bathroom is very small too.
Because the bedrooms are small and the bathroom is small, we are offering a very good rate especially considering that the apartment is very well located in the Dublin 1 zone and also considering that the apartment has the benefit of having 2 separate bedrooms which makes it private if colleagues want to share the apartment or 2 couples or friends...so we think the apartment is a great value for money if you don't mind a small bathroom and 2 small bedrooms.
The apartment has great advantages : it is a very quiet apartment as it is only surrounded by gardens, the beds are very comfy, has a central location in Dublin 1, we offer transparent costs for electricity: you decide yourself and pay cost price for only what you consume ,
6 minutes walk to O'Connell Street which is the main street in the centre of Dublin. 2 Minutes to the main football stadium : Crockepark, About 10 Minutes walk to Temple Bar where all of the famous Irish pubs are located.
Hi speed WiFi Wireless Internet is included.
The studio is close to the junction of North Circular Road and Dorset street. Dorset Street is on the main route for Dublin Airport. The number 16 Bus goes from here and is every 15 minutes directly to the Airport and cost about 2 euros. It takes less than 30 mins to the Airport.
There is a non smoking and no party policy in the house.
You need to buy from us electric cards.
Please note that the electricity is on an electric card system. They are sold in units of 5 Euros. As a guide, generally, electricity does not cost too much and would only cost 5 to 10 euros per week depending on use. Consumption of electricity is displayed all the time, any electricity not used is refunded on departure day.
The hosts were absolutely lovely couldn't fault how nice they were. But I have to list a few things about this apartment so you can improve for your next guests.
My friend was in the shower and the shower head fell on top of her head injuring her.
Cooker was unusable, didn't work anyway but was the dirtiest thing we've ever seen.
Nothing had been washed up looked like things were growing on it.. Pans, plates, cups etc..
It was so cold the heaters were awful we had to spend our own money and buy blankets and hot water bottles and sit with our coats on.
Kitchen light didn't work.
Mirror fell off the wall which could have been potentially dangerous.
The blind was broken so we had no privacy what so ever.
Area was north circular which is a really dangerous area, being four young girls every taxi driver we had walked us to and from our front door every night and told us to be very careful.
Thank you very much for staying with us. We always do our best to make sure that our guests have a great experience when staying with us. We have to say that we are very surprise by your comments and we think are not very fare.
You said that we were nice hosts so how come you did not contact us straightaway to tell us about the things which were supposed to be wrong. We told you that we were only 15 minutes away should you need anything and we would have been very happy to come and fixe things straightaway for you. when we arrived at the apartment, it was totally upside down, we have never seen the apartment looking so bad, the shower head was completely broken up and opened up, the keys of the apartment were not returned so we had to change the lock and make new keys, no electricity money was left on the table for your electricity expenses as it was not included in the rental and was explained on the description of the apartment and on arrival, the mirror in the kitchen/ dining area was off the wall, dirty intimate clothings were left all over the place. We think that something went wrong with you. maybe drinking too much to a point of not thinking straight, ie calling us, contacting us. Any normal guest would ring in an emergency to get the shower working again as it is pretty major, we had to buy another shower head, it is all fixed now, the way it was broken up and totally open up, it looked like it was interfere with, the glass miror is secured again, in one year and 3 months it had been on the wall, it never fell off, anyway it is secured again.
Maybe, you did not want to pay for your own electricity consumption, we don't know but the heaters are working perfectly, we agree with you that if the apartment is not heated in the middle of the winter it is pretty miserable. We prefer to give our guests low rental rate and let our Guests to be responsible for their electricity need, it is explained in the description of the apartment and on arrival.
The hob and the oven are working perfectly too, there is a child safety switch which needs to be switch on before any electricity can come on the 4 ring hob, it was explained to you on your arrival, maybe you did not understand us, why did you not communicate with us on all of those issues??they would have been sorted in less than one hour. It is your special stay, we want you to be happy. If there was anything that the cleaner had forgotten to clean which we are very surprised about, we would have come ourselves and re- clean it for you. The blind is working perfect in the kitchen, we have Belgium guests at the moment and they have the blind in the kitchen down for their privacy so we don't understand your issue on it. Again, had you communicated with us on it, we would have been very happy to come and fix everything for you immediatly and you would have had no issue. We cannot guess, communication works both ways, we cannot guess.
Please, in the futur, if there is anything going wrong in your rented accomodation, do communicate with your host either by mail or by text or by calling the phone.
We really don't understand why you did not communicate with us.
We are trying our best to make our guests feel very welcome and want them to have a great stay in Dublin with us.
Thank you very much for your feedback and for staying with us.

Place has been ok. Contact friendly. Good walking distance to the city centre.
Once we arrived in Dublin, Alex and Ada were very helpful with telling us about the flat and what to do/see while in Dublin. Any questions we had about the flat or Dublin they answered happily. They provided maps and even walked us out of the flat to show us what streets to take to the city center. The flat is just like the description and other reviews mentioned, there are no surprises. It is small with two bedrooms, a small bathroom and kitchen/living area. The flat is located between two gardens which does create a damp feel but that should be expected considering the location. Also, since it is between two gardens and somewhat underground (basement style flat) it was cold but there are heaters. Overall, it was a good experience!
Thank you so much Courtney for staying with us and for your feedback.
You were very nice and very easy to communicate with.
We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. Equally we enjoyed meeting you and giving you all the great tips for the nice places to stay in Dublin. You are very welcome anytime.
Alex and Ada,
Alex and Ada were very friendly and kind to us but the apartament is so scarce illuminted and terrible damp that we got ill.
the apartment does not follow safety regulations. The apartment is not security.
we could sleep at night because water dipped from that kind of plastic windows in both bedrooms. the windows are in top of beds..... the towels were insufficient and damp so were useless. I think that apartament must have a controller from airbnb service because is not aviable for the rent..... I have so lot apartament visit whit airbnb in Europe and all were very good! I am sorry was terrible experience! Elenia
We have welcomed many guests on Airbnb from all over the world and have been very happy doing it. Things went really wrong with Elenia and her family on so many areas.
- they managed to get so lost and did not communicate with us and after waiting for them for near,y 3 hours, we rang them, they went walking in the opposite direction and crossed the all city and they eventually arrived at the apartment, they were very upset, we turned the radiators on to warm the apartment for their arrival but wanting them off, so we turned them off. They booked and paid for 4 guests but they were 5 guests, we did not mind them paying when they arrived, they did not pay, so got away with 56 euros. They seem to have trouble reading the description of the apartment as they said they were not aware of the electricity payment and they refused to pay on departure so another 15 euros went missing. So we supposed they had to justify and find things to say in order of no payment. We have to say that they were not honest and if they have difficulties with payment, maybe it might be wise not to travel. Our apartment rate is good value and the electricity is only cost price only for what it is used. The apartment is really quiet but surrounded by gardens so yes, of course, in the winter, it needs to be properly heated, if not it is not going to be great. We make no apologies about it combined with the fact that ireland has a humid weather, it is important to do so. The towels were very clean and tried, I don't know why we got that comment for the first time, we guessed they were. Dry upset by being so lost, we got no apologies from them as we had been waiting for them for a long time.
There is nothing wrong with this apartment, there could be a bit of dampness if not heated properly, a cold apartment is never nice, we cannot do everything, heating is not expensive it is 0.17 cent per kW and as our guests spend most of their time outside and enjoying themselves, it is no point in including it with the rental cost making it cheaper for our guests and they are free to decide what they want to consume.
We think it is a brilliant, transparent system.
Usually, our guests are brilliant and very honest, we rarely have this issue.
Thank you very much,
Alex and Ada
We felt very happy in Alex's and Ada's place.The apartment was clean,cosy and warm and close to main streets,including Temple Bar.On arrival they were welcoming us together with their little boy-it gave very warm feeling. Ada provided us all neccessary information and gave us a city map which was very helpful later on when going for sightseeing.
The neigbourhood seemed safe .We were coming home late night and did not feel any fear to be on the street in that area.
If I have to come back again,I would choose this apartment.
Thank you for evrything,Alex and Ada!
Thank you so much Ritma for staying with us. we have had great pleasure welcoming you and your family for your stay in Dublin.
We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay in Dublin and at the apartment. You are very welcome anytime:D
Alex and Ada
Accueil très agréable et bon point pour les Français qui seraient un peu anglophobe. De bon conseil sur les coins à visiter et les bonnes adresses.
Logement bien situé et relativement proche du centre, même à pied.
Appartement un peu petit mais bien équipé qui conviendra à la plupart des personnes qui y seront pour dormir et pour des courts séjours.
Pour l'appart froid, on a pas vraiment chauffé non plus donc...
Humide en revanche (mais c'est aussi à cause du froid...)
Salle de bain un peu petite mais on comprends bien que ça aurait été compliqué de faire autrement.
Mauvais point pour le wifi qui n'est accessible que dans le couloir de l'entrée et pas dans le séjour, chambres
We arrived a little bit early, Alex still made it possible for us to place our stuff. They were very friendly and explained us, what to see and where to buy stuff.
The appartment is in the basement of a small house. The appartment is very small (especially the bath room), but was ok for us, because we only stayed there for one night. The appartment was very clean!

We love meeting Guests from all over the world. We have met fantastic people and have had a great experience with airbnb guests. We are an easygoing family, very patient and understanding. We do our very best to make sure that you enjoy your stay with us and in Dublin. We are very happy to advise you on off the beaten tracks things to do in Dublin. We will accompany you a little to show you where to go from the apartment to the heart of the city center on foot. We will give you maps, circle the places on it where we thing it is worth visiting....We privilege communication on both side. We will always be very happy to take your luggage early if you wish. we are offering easy check-out where you can check yourself out very easily by just leaving the key of your apartment on the kitchen counter along with the electricity money and just close the door of the apartment behind you as the door locks by itself so very early check- out is very easy and always possible. Should you have a late flight and enjoy Dublin to the very hand, we are very happy to offer to you to leave your luggage in the hallway.
We are very easy going and patient.
We are looking forward to meeting you and welcoming you in Dublin:):):)
