Interaction with Guests
As much or as little as you like!
Our apartment is in the perfect location and all of our past guests have agreed! Situated on a quiet street, close to the River Liffey, just a short walk away from the hustle and bustle of Temple Bar. We are located beside Smithfield, the up and coming neighbourhood in Dublin.
Roll to the Dice Bar where the bar tenders are great to talk to and not afraid to add an extra dash of JD on top of the measure. Or if you are looking for something more distinctly Irish, The Cobblestone Pub is one of the most important places in Ireland within the traditional Irish music scene.
L. Mulligan Grocer is one of Dublin's newest and best-kept secrets. Indulge in some top class 'pub grub' and a glass of home brewed Beer.
Hidden away just around the corner in Arbour Hill, The Lilliput Stores has great coffee and sandwiches.
The Phoenix Park, one of the largest parks in Europe and the home of Dublin Zoo is just a ten minute walk away. Here you can rent bikes and (hopefully!) enjoy a picnic in the sunshine!.
The apartment is located a 3 minute walk from the Luas and there is a bus stop right outside our building! Connolly train station is just ten minutes away by Luas and here you can catch a train to anywhere outside of Dublin City!
Just leave the place neat and tidy and please be respectful of our neighbours who are lovely!
Nice place to stay.
A quiet flat close enough to the center.
We didn't met our host but everything was planned for our arrival and she answered all our questions.
A place to stay.
We had a great stay at Eimear's apartment. It is in a prime location, I cannot emphasize that enough. Close to Phoenix, IMMA, Hueston Station, Smithfield, Third Space and the LUAS. It met our criteria spot on:
2. Quiet place
3. All the amenities worked, water, washer, heat, comfy beds.
4. All the basic kitchen requirments were there and plenty adequate for cooking all meals at home. Fridge was large enough for us also.
5. Nice living room and small view of a nice old stone facade. On 2nd floor, street noise almost non-existent.
We missed wifi, but, it turned out great as we didn't waste any time online and could meet our wifi requirments at Lighthouse Cinema or Third Space Coffee.
Eimear was very hospitable in making her place available in less than 24 hours notice after our previous booking was canceled at the last minute.
Great stay. Thanks Eimear! -Dave, Clara & Lola.
Der Kontakt zu Eimear war immer unkompliziert und zuverlässig. Wir haben im Vorfeld eine sehr hilfreiche Wegbeschreibung erhalten und konnten die Unterkunft leicht finden. Eimear und Ihre Freundin haben uns sehr herzlich empfangen und uns kurz das Wesentliche über die Wohnung erklärt. Zudem fanden wir einen persönlichen Brief an uns vor, wo sehr gute Informationen über die nähere Umgebung (Supermärkte, Restaurants, traditionelle Pubs, Sehenswürdigkeiten, etc.) in einer Straßenkarte eingezeichnet waren. Sehr nett fanden wir, dass Eimear sogar eine kleine Geburtstagsüberraschung vorbereitet hatte. Vielen Dank, wir hatten eine schöne Zeit!
Location: it wasn't in the heart of Dublin City centre Main Street.. But it was close enough. Honestly I liked it better this was because I felt like I was actually living in the city and a local. it was 2 min walk to a bus stop, 5 min from a train stop. However I found it to be a very quick walk to catch a cab if need be .. I did end up walking everywhere from that location because I chose not to splurge on cabs or transport. I t was also easy for cabs to find since It was located next to the law society.
The flat was very secure and a very comfortable place for 4-5 people.
The host was extremely helpful and everything went smoothly. There was plenty of closet space, heating, and anything in the kitchen to get some cooking done.. There were plenty of towels and clean bed linens. The only downside was the flat could use a little deep cleaning. I'm not too picky and I'm a typical male when it comes to caring for an apartment. So it was good enough for me. However it is about the only downside I could see for some.
The apartment looked as it appears in the pictures. It wasn't super clean, sticky floor and hair in the shower. Bedroom was clean. The location is good with good transport links and the price is fair, especially during the busy period we had booked (NYE 2014).
It was sometimes difficult to get quick responses from Eimear although she did respond to all our queries and she did say she was available by phone if we needed her.
There is no WiFi (as properly described in the ad) but free WiFi is available at the Lighthouse cinema very close by.
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
