About this listing
Very simple, very compact, low priced 2 bed apartment who suits Guests who are looking for a no fuss, quiet place to sleep and wash. The bathroom is tiny with very small but very hot shower. Electricity,not included in rental price, cost : 17 cent/KW
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,
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.
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.
We stayed three nights at Alex' place. It was not a problem at all to arrive late. Our hosts gave us many useful advises what to visit in Dublin, where to eat or drink. Sleeping rooms are neatly done. The shower might be a little bit too small for people above 1,90. Even tough we were in the north, it was a short walk to the center of Dublin. Also the pubs in the area are cheaper than in Temple Bar.
Très bon accueil de la part de notre hôte qui a passé du temps à nous expliquer tous les bons plans de Dublin.
Certes l'appartement est petit mais parfaitement fonctionnel même pour une famille de 6 pour un long weekend. Il n'est pas trop loin de o'connell street (10 min à pieds + bus). Le quartier est calme et proche du stade de Dublin ce qui permet de baigner dans l'atmosphère lors de soirées de match. Il y a un supermarché et quelques pubs à 2 min à pieds.
Seul (gros) point faible: le ménage n'a pas été fait (sol sale, toiles d'araignées, vaisselle mal lavée, nous obligeant à tout re-nettoyer). Les 49€ de ménage ne sont pas justifiés...
Et il manque de la vaisselle pour 6 personnes (préférez manger en ville).
Alex and his wife were excellent hosts, they were extremely welcoming and explained everything in warm detail. Considering the difficult experiences we've had in the past I would definitely recommend them for a 3-4 night stay :)
We enjoyed our stay in Dublin. Alex was accommodating when our ferry was canceled and we arrived a day late and very helpful getting us oriented to the city.
Alex was a lovely host, the apartment was perfect for our needs as we were attending a concert in Croke Park which was right next door. Apartment is as described small and clean no added extras so if it is just somewhere to sleep and make breakfast this is the place.
Alex was very kind and welcoming. He spend time with us to explain the neigborhood (buses, shops, children playgrounds...) even if we arrived late.
His appartement is well located and has everything needed

About the Host, Alex
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:):):)
