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!

We couldn't have been happier with our weekend in Dublin. This was in no small part because of the lovely apartment which was excellently located, stylish and clean. It was a great base from which to explore the city. Mike was very friendly and helpful and got us set up in the apartment. We didn't need to ask him any questions after that, but had we needed to he made it very clear he was available to help and lived nearby in the same building.
We had a great experience staying at Martin and Mike's place in Dublin. It was a gorgeous space, impeccably furnished and extremely clean, and the perfect launching point for our travels. Thanks so much for your hospitality!
Overall, very impressed with the apartment. I was in Dublin with my girlfriend for 3 nights and the apartment was perfect for us - well decorated, comfortable and Martin seemed very accommodating. Though not directly in Dublin centre, it's only 5mins walk (from recollection) to get to Trinity and another 5 or so till Grafton street. So positive experience, and I would definitely consider renting here next time I'm in Dublin.
Our stay at Mike's was pleasant. We were greeted by Mike when we got off the taxi, he even helped with the suitcases. We got a lift up to the apartment and as we entered noticed how beautifully decorated and spacious it was. It was even better than the photos. Mike showed us around the apartment which had everything we needed our own kitchen, balcony, living room area, clean bathroom and little welcome chocolates next to our lovely bed. The apartment itself is situated away from the city so it was quiet which was lovely. The apartment was about a 20 minute walk from the city centre which was fine by us and also too there are restaurants about 2 minutes away along the wharf which was convenient if you didn't want to go too far. Overall, we loved staying at Mikes. He was so helpful in organizing us a taxi, recommending restaurant places and just in general being a welcoming and friendly host. I'd stay back there in a heart beat!
Beautiful well appointed apartment. Enjoyed it very much. It is a bit of a walk to the city centre but luckily there is a bicycle stand for the city bicycles just outside so we enjoyed cycling around the city and getting home quickly and easily. Had a very good stay and Mike was very helpful and communication good and immediate.
This listing is exactly like in the photos; it had every amenity i would think of and super comfy bed with lovely soft sheets!
The apartment was exceptionally clean. hosts are super responsive- i wouldn't hesitate to book again!
We liked the keeping in touch per texts. Kitchen was a bonus.
''The apt was in a nice area of Dublin near the canals. It was well appointed and very comfortable. It was lovely to meet Martin who gave us hints on where to go and where to eat. Mike was always helpful with information when we needed it. A really nice Dublin experience.'' Thanks you Katrin - Mike
