The Space

Welcome to my home!

Please note this apartment is my home - it is not an empty sterile apartment - if you are looking for such a location - better to pay the higher rates elsewhere .... otherwise i really hope i can welcome you to my home which you will have sole use of!

l check my email constantly and endeavour to reply to all emails very promptly as I know it helps you plan ... PLEASE CONTACT ME TO CONFIRM AVAILABILITY BEFORE YOU SEND A BOOKING REQUEST ... Thanks!

This listing is for my entire apartment which consists of two double bedrooms and a large comfortable double couchbed in the livingroom - accommodating a maximum of six guests. You also have a well equipped kitchen, a large comfortably furnished living room with flat screen TV, satellite channels and a balcony with great views of Dublin city centre and the Four Courts!

People book through airbnb to get local information and a friendly welcome in your host's home rather than a neutral sterile apartment - when you book the whole apartment you will be free to enjoy it solely but the warm welcome is still offered!

I provide basic breakfast items for you for the first morning - there are many supermarkets within a few minutes' walk with a corner store at my building!

These accommodations are also listed separately: Dublin centre home from home rooms 1 & 2 and Dublin centre couchbed A. Both the bedrooms are double bedrooms however the slightly larger room can have two single beds also if this suits you.

There is a nice bathroom with an electric shower which has been recently refurbished!

If you are not looking to rent the entire apartment please check individual listings for availability as often some of the rooms will be available ...

I am 4 minutes walk from the Luas (tram) Red line which is a direct link to the National Convention Centre but I am within very easy walking distance of anywhere in the city centre!

Please check the availability of each listing I offer on it's calender as they can differ ..... thanks! - its always worthwhile to message me anyway ... as I can sometimes have availability at the last minute!

If you would like any hints on what to do around Dublin or indeed in planning an itinerary around just get in touch! I also love history and have a keen interest in photography and am happy to point you towards some Dublin gems!

It's nice to know who might be coming to stay so if you can please fill me in just a little on your group and your overall travel plans!

I live in Dublin city centre in Smithfield just 10 mins walk from the heart of Dublin and it's principal 'boulevard' O'Connell Street and the cool social/bar/restaurant quarter - Temple Bar.

In addition there is a host of shops/restaurants/bars located just steps from your Dublin home from home - see the gallery of pics for some cool places at your doorstep!

I have a lot of experience in hosting people and showing people my city – I love talking about recent irish history and my apartment looks onto the Four Courts building – one of the many historical buildings in Dublin! I can leave you to your own schedule or am happy to suggest good things to do and see, both in Dublin and in the surrounding countryside and beyond .... from galleries and museums to shopping to country / historical walks – just ask – I am happy to point you in the right direction – Dublin awaits you!

There are many tourist attractions such as Jameson Distillery and National Museum, Collins Barracks along with the famous Cobblestone Bar, renowned for irish music and a good pint of Guinness, right at your doorstep! Just across Dublin's principal river, the Liffey, is St. James' Gate - home of Guinness since 1759!

  • We very much enjoyed our stay in Dublin, thanks to staying in a very convenient location. It was a good size for us (3 couples + 1 young children) and Rory even got us a cot bed!

  • Romy nous a bien accueilli. Il nous a conseille sur les visites. Le logement est fonctionnel et très près du centre ville. Nous avons fait toutes les visites à pieds. Pour le retour à aéroport, rory s est chargé de la réservation du taxi et nous avons eu un prix. Les irlandais sont vraiment sympathiques.

  • Absolutely recommended!!

    Rory is a lovely person: polite, fun and really caring of his guests. As soon as my family and I arrived at home, he spent few minutes with us to illustrate some typical places to visit, according to our tastes and plans. Thanks to his suggestions, we did really have the possibility to enjoy authentic irish 'moments'.

    In the apartment, each room was equipped with all we needed (there were towels, shampoo and conditioner in the toilet and milk, juice, tea, coffee and biscuits in the kitchen). The house is really close to the city centre.

    I wish I could go back soon :)

  • Zusammen mit zwei Studienkollegen absolvierten wir eine Wochenende in Dublin und lernten die Irische Pub-Kultur intensiv kennen. Es war großartig.
    Rory empfing uns trotz später Ankunft am Freitag abend (22:00h) persönlich und begrüßte uns sehr herzlich. Er gab uns sehr wertvolle Tips rund um Dublin und versorgte uns mit einer Stadtkarte. Seine freundliche und herzliche Art war uns sehr sympatisch. Er erkundigte sich direkt, wie wir am Sonntag wieder zum Flughafen kommen wollten und versprach, uns ein Taxi zu organisieren.
    Am Sonntag wartete dann, wie mit Rory per Mailkontakt am Samstag vereinbart, pünktlich ein Taxi zum Flughafen. Toller Service!
    Die Unterkunft war im Wesentlichen so, wie die Bilder es vermuten ließen. In manchen Punkten sind die Bilder allerdings etwas vorteilhaft.
    Im Großen und Ganzen fasse ich das Wochenende als sehr gelungen zusammen. Die Unterkunft ist für einen solchen Trip in Ordnung und empfehlenswert. Rory ist ein toller Gastgeber. Many thanks to you - Rory!

  • Four of us stayed at one of Rory's places for 3 nights and it was great! He was VERY helpful in showing us where things were around town and even left juice, milk and some food for us if we (website hidden) was very clean and withing walking distance to everything we wanted to see. I would definitely recommend staying here!

  • From the beginning Rory was very helpful with any question we had about the apartment and the city. This also continued when we arrived in Dublin, and we felt that if we needed help with anything, we could always contact Rory. The apartment is as advertised and fairly central. We forgot to bring our own adapters for the power sockets, so we were very happy to find plenty of them already in the flat.

    All in all a nice stay in Dublin. Thanks, Rory!

  • Rori is hilarious!

    He guided us through the streets of Dublin and gave six of (email hidden) to stay (email hidden) flight. We even checked early.

    Everything was just as described. The parking garage was really appreciated as well as the location.

    We were across the street from Jameson and walked to Temple Bar and cabbed to downtown.

  • Four friends and I stayed in one of Rorys apartments in September 2013. The short version of our stay is that it was perfect. We got exactly what we wanted, which was a large apartment with kitchen and living room located in a good spot in Dublin. Rory was always just a phone call or email away and he had answers to all of our questions. I don’t think you can find a more helpful host. When we arrived he gave us a map and pointed out nice breakfast places, bars and restaurants.
    The apartment was clean and both towels and linens were included. So it was like staying in hotel but with the benefit of more space.
    Dublin as a city was a great and we’ll definitely come back. The live music acts around Temple Bar was extraordinary and something one have to experience. Next time we’ll definitely book with Rory again.
