About this listing
Newly renovated!!! The Georgian heart of Dublin! Between Merrion Square and the Grand Canal.
So much within walking distance - museums, the Aviva, docklands, Grafton st, Grand Canal Theatre, the sea!
2 double beds, 1 bath, open plan kitchen/living.
Ours is a nice little apartment in an amazing location. Its perfect for two couples, a small family or a pair of mates exploring Dublin.
It's comprised of two comfortable double rooms, with an open plan living/kitchen/dining room.
There's everything you need for a nice night in or small dinner party, but its the proximity to all of Dublin's best bits that will keep you out and about.
Everything, its all yours!
Large HD TV & Minix smart box, so if you fancy a movie night in you're spolied for choice.
I just got new controllers for my old N64 if you fancy some super mario cart?
Interaction with Guests
Unfortunately we're away a lot working, so you probably wont meet us. However my great friend Jeanette is your friend in the neighborhood, and she's the best. She's an artist living and working right nearby. Jeanette will welcome you and be your "phone-a-friend" for your stay. Her mobile and details are given after the booking is made.
The canal, good weather or bad! You can walk to the river Liffey, the sea, the docklands area. Everyone that visits Dublin does the obvious city stuff but there's so much other stuff missed. We'll put you in the right direction.
Basically everything is really close, and if you have a Dublin bike card (HIGHLY recommended you get this) the whole city is minutes away. But you're not right in the middle of the noise and crowds.
The dart (train) is around the corner and we recommend day trips to Bray(and Wicklow area) and Howth. Great walks and seaside eateries etc. Jeanette will fill you in on arrival.
Dart (Grand Canal Dock), buses, Luas, aircoach to Kildare St.
Like it's your home
With respect for the neighbours
From Jun 1 - Aug 31, 2015 the minimum stay is 2 nights.
Another fab weekend in Dublin! Apartment was great, located in quiet area and still close enough for a short walk in to heart of Dublin. Jeanette kept in touch prior to arrival and was there to meet us and let us in to apartment early! Thanks!!
Bob is an amazing host and his place in Dublin is perfect! Our family had a great stay at Bob's place - very convenient location, clean, and comfortable. Bob was amazing - he met us at the apartment, gave us great tips and advice about Dublin, and even set up his old gaming console for our kids to play! Wonderful host, wonderful place, highly recommend!
Everything was great! The place is really lovely. Thank to Jeanette and Bob for such a great time in Dublin!)
Jeanette was on hand to welcome us to the apartment & was just lovely. Nothing was too much trouble for her & she gave us plenty of tips regarding local grocery shops, buses & local entertainment. She was most accomodating with check in & out times.
Bob so sweet, keeping in touch before, while in Dublin and afterwards. The perfect host.
We drove from the airport and arranged for a spot to keep the car - definitely recommended as parking is limited.
Easy to walk into the heart of Dublin, a walking friendly city.
Easy to sleep 4 people.
We had a great time staying in Bob's apartment. His friend Jeanette was extremely friendly and helpful, telling us where the local shops were and allowing us to leave our bags in the apartment before check in as we arrived early in the day. The apartment had plenty of space for the 4 of us and the 15 minute walk to the centre made it possible to go back whenever we needed to during the day. Would recommended Bob's apartment to anyone who was looking for somewhere to call home while on their trip to Dublin!
The apartment and the location were just great! Bob was a wonderful host, answered all our questions within minutes and found a cot and a high chair for our baby. We really enjoyed our stay!
About the Host, Bob
I travel a lot for work so my apartment is often available. I work in TV/Film as a freelance Producer/Director & Presenter. I've done travel series for Irish TV and recently on Travel Channel (The Ethical Hedonist). I'm currently running The Ethical Volunteer with my partner Sarah.
We love experiencing new cultures.
I'm sorry I won't be here to meet people as we rent the entire place so we're usually away, but occasionally we'll be here. My friend Jeanette is helping me out with arrivals and departures, she's based across the street, so you'll have a friend in the neighborhood. Jeanette is an artist.
