We love the bars, cafe's, restaurants and proximity to the waterside, as well as it's edgy contemporary feel and ease of access to the city-centre!
Pastries from Il Valentino, waterskiing on the dock and cycling courtesy of Dublin's city bike scheme (station right outside our building!) are some really nice experiences in the area amongst many!
A Dublin city bikes station is located right outside our building with a 3 day pass starting from only €5. See (website hidden)

My stay at Mike's place was excellent. The apartment is really great with a perfect location from my office but also very close to bus stop. Mike was a great host and very communicative. The only small issue in the apartment is the curtains in the bedroom. They are so thin that the room gets bright really early so hard to sleep until late.
Mike met us outside with a warm welcome, he showed us everything we needed to know about the flat and left us to it. The flat is lovely, very bright, clean and stylish. There are some lovely books to nosey at as well, kitchen fully equipped. We walked into town and it took about 20 minutes to temple bar and grafton. Lovely cafes around the Quay to eat at and you watch waters ports there as well. Overall a lovely place to stay, great location and a brilliant host who was on call should we need him.
Great experience from start to finish! Friendly welcome, beautiful home and very clean.
My mother and I had a great stay at Martin and Mike's apartment. We were greeted by a friendly smile and were truly made to feel safe and welcome. The accomodation looks just as the pictures suggest and is actually quite more spacious then we had expected. What made me especially impressed were all the very thought out finishing touches! That is, wifi passwords were carefully placed in the living room and in the bedroom for easy access, and, (as we live Canada) we were quite pleasantly surprised that an outlet adapter was provided.
All in all, we loved our stay and would definitely come back!!
Thanks for having us!
This is the second time I have stayed at Mike and Martin's apartment so my previous review is good to read. I still want to live here full time. Mike was great about meeting me (again) and easy to text with questions of all sorts along the way.
It's simply a great apartment in a great location!!!
The listing was very accurate and the host made me feel welcomed. They were always available to answer questions.
Beautiful apartment and fun location.
We could walk/bus/light rail to any location in Dublin.
Mike met us at the entrance to the apartment, after the cab driver dropped us off, making us feel at home.
Our stay was very short, but our memories of Dublin will be enhanced because of the accommodations provided by Mike and Martin.
