El apartamento es tal y como se muestra en las fotos, está perfectamente equipado y es confortable, bastante lejos del centro, eso si, a 12€ en taxi mas o menos
No conocimos a los propietarios, salvo un día que alguien entro en la casa a las 8 de la mañana despertándonos a todas, lo cuan no nos gustó nada.
Tienen un sofisticado sistema de entrega de llaves, en el que no participan los propietarios, si no que las dejan en una caja cerrada con contraseña a la entrada de la casa, un poco difícil de descubrir pero útil. Se echó de menos encontrar a alguna persona que hiciera el check-in
This apartment was great, and one of the nicest we have ever stayed in while using Air BnB. It was very clean, and perfect for 3 people. The location is great! It's a five minute walk to the tram, and that can take you to city center in about 15 minutes. The area seems safe, and there are some great restaurants. We were very happy with our stay here, and I would recommend it to anyone.
L'host si è preso ottima cura di noi, le indicazioni per trovare lacasa erano precise e pratiche. Inoltre il quartiere era tranquillo e accogliente.
The bay was wonderful! The space was good for our family of five and it was so convenient to the LUAS (train). We used it for most of our moving around, since we didn't have a car. We took an inexpensive taxi to the Heuston train station one day since we had an early train tour. Grainne's friend Vinnie was an excellent taxi driver for our ride to and from the airport. Also convenient to a few small grocery stores where we got breakfast supplies, as well as restaurants and pharmacies. Everything was very clean and functioning.
The best part of our trip was the Irish people. Hands-down the nicest we have met anywhere. Grainne's neighbor Valerie helped us get the key and get in and she was fantastic! So were everyone we met. Would definitely return!
Grainne was a lovely host during our stay, being very understanding, prompt in answering every questions we had and even left many travel brochures for our use and welcome us with a few of Irish food items to try! A warm and surprising welcome given by all! Rory the taxi driver gave great insights while passing by town. The apartment was homely and comfortable, a much needed atmosphere when doing tons of work for long weeks (we were there for longer than 4 weeks!) with a working wifii and fireplace for the extra chilly nights during winter. We even had a lovely gathering and cook a feast, with lots of positive comments from our own guests when we held it in the apartment itself! The neighbour Valerie and the cleaning services were of a great help, providing useful tips around town by the locals themselves and making sure the apartment was sparkling clean! The bus outside goes into town fairly quick, and with wifii around, you can organize your time by knowing the timings of the dublin buses! The luas (train) and foodstores nearby is pretty handy too, with loads of awesome take-aways around! I cannot describe enough other than "Thanks a million" to these lovely team of hosts that made our experience in dublin positive one that we cannot forget!

About the Host, Grainne
I'm Gráinne, originally from Co. Kildare and raised in a small family run hotel. I am married to Tim who is now retired from An Garda Siochána (Irish Police).
Tim and I purchased this property in 1986 and lived here for a number of years until our family grew and we needed to relocate.
We loved living in this area and have many happy memories of our first home here.
I have consistently worked in the hospitality industry and always wanted to provide holiday accommodation here as I felt this to be an ideal location. I have been lucky enough to have realized my dream.
I pay particular attention to detail and set the highest of standards in cleanliness and customer care.
Our aim is to ensure that you really feel at home and comfortable in our apartment and we will endeavor to assist you in any way with any aspect of your vacation, so that you get the most out of your trip to Dublin.
