RECENTLY REFURBISHED COMPLETELY - JAN 2013!
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!

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 including Sky 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.
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!

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!

The appartment is has it looks, clean & cosy.
We will definitely come back for St Patrick at Rory's place !
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 wanted. Place 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 us a comfortable place 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.

A very comfortable apartment in a convenient location. Really feels like a home away from home. Rory is extremely helpful and personable.
Rory´s home is a very well placed appartment very close to the centre of Dublin. It is nice, clean, very confortable, big, perfect for us, a family with two children. The beds are really a dream! Rory is a very kind host, who help us giving useful advice for our short visit to the visit. I thank him a lot.
Four of us stayed here for one night as part of our Ireland roadtrip. Great location to explore Dublin from. We stayed in a slightly different apartment, than the initial address given, but it was in the building just across the road. A luxurious, spacious and neatly kept apartment, so it was no problem. On Rory's suggestion, we went to the Cobblestone Pub which is close by, for a great evening of authentic Irish music!
Rory was a great host and made the whole stay super easy! He's very friendly and took time to help us decide where to go/what to see/where to eat during our weekend stay. He was more than happy to accommodate our needs. The apartment was clean, modern and very spacious. Thanks again!
Our stay at Rory's place was great. He was very friendly and helpful and gave us great advice. We enjoyed our stay at his place that's nicely located and recommend it to others. Rory was so nice to us, when we left our coat at his apartment he met us at the airport and brought it to us. He is a fantastic host and went out of his way to help us. We really appreciate all his help. :)
