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.
Alex et sa compagne (francaise) nous ont réservé un accueil chaleureux dans cet appartement bien situé dans Dublin. Malgré tout, nous avons rencontré plusieurs problèmes:
- Nous n'avons eu des nouvelles qu'à minuit la veille de notre départ, et nous avons fini par les appeler depuis la France pour fixer un arrangement qui n'a pas été respecté: en arrivant sur place, les clés n'étaient pas la comme attendu. Nous avons la chance d'avoir un forfait mobile international et les avons contactés pour fixer un rendez-vous un peu plus tard.
- L'appartement est bien trop petit pour une famille de 5 personnes: c'est davantage un studio pour 2-3 personnes. Il est par ailleurs froid et humide (situé en sous-sol) au point que nous n'y sommes restés que pour dormir (aucun repas pris la-bas).
- 49 € pour un ménage qui n'était pas fait à l'heure où nous étions censés arriver surtout au vu de la taille de l'appartement, c'est bien trop cher.
Nous avons été très bien accueillies par Alex et son épouse qui est française. De nombreux et précieux conseils et adresses nous ont été fournis. Le logement est situé à 20min du centre et est pratique pour passer quelques jours à Dublin. Nous avons apprécié qu'ils nous attendent malgré l'heure tardive de notre arrivée.
Alex made us feel very welcome. He was friendly with suggestions of places to go. The apartment is not in a great part of town and is a distance to public transportation.
There were items that we felt were missing, like extra towels, bath mat, wastebasket and we texted Alex and he brought them over.
However, the apartment is in a basement with one window looking at another window. The apartment was damp and musty smelling. The bathroom was dirty and the grout was black. The bathroom was also tiny with a microscopic sink.
The rest of the apartment was dirty and dark with spider webs hanging from the ceiling. The walls were covered with dirty peeling wallpaper.The couch in the picture had been replaced with an uncomfortable futon. There were few pieces of silverware, not even a kitchen knife.
I could not recommend staying here.
Spent a night here for a concert at Croke Park. Absolutely ideal as it is walking distance and you don't have to worry about fighting the crowds. Hosts were really friendly and recommended a nearby pub. It is a studio apartment with 2 bedrooms and small bathroom. Would stay again for a gig at Croke
We have been warmly welcomed. Explanation both for the appartment and.moving around were cleared. We felt just like at home. Very kind hosts.
The place is no-frills just as described. The price is unbeatable for the location. Our hosts were more than helpful and we really appreciated their kind welcome and tips on getting around the city. The place is a bit cold and humid but their are heaters provided in each bed room.
L'appartement n'ai en plein centre mais ai bien placer,un peu humide mais rien de dramatique pour week-end sur Dublin. Alex est au top super sympa elle sera de bon conseil

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:):):)
