Lovely one bedroom apartment 10 minutes from the historic centre of Dublin and the fun-time area of Temple Bar. A spacious, airy space with a separate bedroom ideal for one or two. A chilled, zen-like sitting room bathroom and a big kitchen. Perfect.
A comfortable, one bedroom apartment in the centre of Dublin.
Shower, kitchen, washing machine, microwave, toaster, kettle, juicer, television, UPC channels, wifi.
Interaction with Guests
I will meet guest to give keys, show the apartment and give some advice on Dublin and to collect keys when they go. I am also available to contact on my mobile if there are any questions or issues.
Nice area in the centre of Dublin.
The city centre is literally 5 - 10 minutes from the apartment.
I expect guests to respect my apartment. To keep it clean and to respect the furniture, tv and other appliances. I expect people to behave in a respectful, decent manner. I have neighbors above, below and all around me who i expect to be considered. I want people to enjoy themselves in an appropriate way. No smoking in the flat, no loud parties, no extra guests and no pets. Also I love my books, feel free to have a look and read a bit, but PLEASE do not take any of my books away or any of my possessions.
The apartment was exactly as described in the listing. When an unavoidable problem arose about collecting the keys Liam was very flexible about sorting an alternative arrangement. The block is quiet and not too big, the security access is simple and there is a lift. Liam's living room gets excellent evening sun with a large window to the west. It was very clean and tidy and all the essentials were in good condition. The location is excellent - near to Smithfield and Stoneybatter - two interesting and vibrant areas of Dublin's inner city. The nearest shop is under 5 mins walk and the nearest bus to the city is the same, a tram stop is 6-7 mins walk. But you could easily walk along the river to the city centre (Henry St.) in 20-25 mins or south side (Temple Bar) 25 mins or (Grafton St.) 35 mins. It is very convenient for the National Museum at Collins Barracks (1 min.), for the Phoenix Park (10 mins walk) and Guinness Storehouse (15 mins walk). I would recommend this accommodation for a couple or a single visitor.
Liam's apartment is warm, clean and comfortable. It has the charm of intellect, highlighted by his books and homey decor. Further, it is in a quiet section of Dublin with fantastic access to the whole city via the train. It was a fantastic experience and it is unbeatable!
Your apartment is great. Honestly it's a lovely place. Good located and very quiet. Thank you Liam :-)
Liam's apartment was spacious and clean. It's situated in a more local area of Dublin (close to the Jameson Distillery), which I liked. The downtown core is about a 20 minute walk away- a nice walk along the river... The only complaint I have about my stay is that my girlfriend and I had to wait around 30 minutes for Liam to arrive with the keys to the apartment.
Very nice clean and quite appartment.
The location of the appartment is close to city center and interesting point.
At 10 min by walk of airport bus line by walk.
Liam is a very friendly and made us feel at home in her apartment.
A good place for a next trip to Dublin.
Clean small apartment near the city center (10 - 15 mins brisk walk).
The apartment complex is not the greatest, but nothing terrible.
Leaving the keys on checkout is a bit of a challenge (need to prop open the outside gate, walk back into the building, leave keys and then exit...)
Our host made us feel very welcome. We had a little wait outside the complex as we were early (our own fault) and he was slightly delayed in traffic. Once he arrived he was very quick and efficient in showing us the apartment, how everything worked etc etc.
The apartment itself was pleasant and functional. There were lots of books, which was nice, and a good TV. However, in truth, we arrived in late afternoon and were only making an overnight trip so we spent very little time there. I am not sure how relaxing it would be for a long stay.
The city-centre location was convenient, though not terribly easy to find. (Two taxi-drivers had slight problems finding it and I was very glad I had looked up the location, including street view, on (website hidden) Earth.) We were attending a show on the other side of town and arrived back at around 10.30. We considered going out to a pub for an hour but the back streets around the apartment seemed very empty and we were a bit uneasy about finding a decent pub and making our way back late on a Saturday night.
Liam was so helpful and direct that we would certainly consider staying there again but would, perhaps, plan our journeys a little better.
I love travelling. I can't live without good books, good coffee, my family, free time or my bicycle.
I love Cuba, Russia, Spain, Italy, France and many other places. I love old classical films, dramas, modern action films and serious films. I really enjoy Italian, Chinese and Indian food as well as plain, simple meat and two veg:).
I plan to make people's stay with me as pleasant as possible. My place is big enough and in a very good location for catching a Luas (the local inner city above ground train) or walking around Dublin.
I am a friendly, open person and I like meeting people. I detest rudeness or unfairness. I expect to be treated that way I treat others. My life motto would be 'life is short so do as much as you can with the time you are given' I try to stay positive and enjoy each moment. I continually remind myself that the present moment is actually all we ever have, yet we (me most of all) forget this (practically) all of the time and have to remind ourselves that the past and the future do not actually exist anywhere but in our minds. Everything we plan, hope for, run from is taking away from the most important moment, which is now!!
