About this listing

It Is a two bedroom apartment but one room is my studio (this will be closed during the duration of your stay). Although if interested in accessories you can always request a viewing!

This apartment is in a safe, gated apartment complex . 3 story building with my apartment on the top 'penthouse' (only a joke with the neighbours) interesting views from balcony looking onto Irishtown and other local views.

Interaction with Guests
As much as they would like. If I can advise on any things of interest whilst in Dublin or travelling around the country. I am available any time to talk with them.
It is a great neighbourhood for local attraction, walking, eating, socialising and easy travelling into town either by walking or taking local transport bus or luas! The luas is across the east toll bridge. This is situated between the 3 arena venue and the Gibson hotel which is lovely place to sit and enjoy the local roof top view. There is a cinema also next to the Gibson, which is handy if you do not want to head into town. Low price tickets from Monday to Thursday! Ringsend/irishtown is an old part of Dublin and it is very safe.
Walking is easy, Buses run regularly into town 1 and 77, then by walking 10 minutes on Charlotte quay there is a 50 56a 77 and 77a. 5 bus stops and you in town ! The luas is over by the Gibson Hotel and 3G arena another option to get into town and go to the Collins Barracks museum.
Other Things to Note
Aviva stadium is worth a look . A easy view is on the bridge of Ringsend, interesting architecture in the area, the Gasworks building, the Canal is beautiful for walks and picnics. The beach is close by, Irishtown nature reserve. Airbnb building is right on the corner of South Lotts road and Ringsend. Very cool building, Google headquarters, Barrow St old U2 recording studios. Odlums Flour building super old building (not in use now) you have the Vilking Splash tour that takes in this area on its tour - great fun!
Smoking is permitted out on the balcony. Turn off the lights when leaving. Not to slam front door as I have plates on the walls, taking care to open and close door and windows. If something gets broken or damaged please do let me know! To lock the door when leaving it has a double lock. The guests should have respect for the property and its contents - nothing it too precious in the apartment apart from the art and plates on the walls. If when finished with the shower if one could give a quick wipe to wipe water from walls etc just to prevent collection on water in the rubber seal which over time discolors shower and grouting. Only if one thinks to do it....! thank you in advance...... And of course to enjoy the neighbourhood! If one has a pet we can discuss .

My idea of having a guest(s) in my home, is a special time for those that choose to come and stay. I believe in honesty so all of trust is put in to the persons to respect the apartment and people in the building. The energy is peaceful within the apartment, the building is quiet only 3 floors 12 apartments in total. Great neighbours! I would the guest(s) them to enjoy my home and feel at home, and hope they enjoy their stay here.
