Ruairi, was very pleasent to deal with and the apartment location was really great. I would have no hesitation in recommending Ruairi's apartment for anyone seeking to stay in the Dun Laoghaire area.
Unfortunately, this apartment was a disappointment. The only feature it had was its location. To begin with we only had a key for the apartment and not the outer door to the building. This was rectified during the first 24 hours (should never have happened). The apartment was basically dirty - accumulated dust on window sills and furniture tops, uncleaned surfaces in the kitchen.
First of all, the location was great. The apartment is located on a beautiful street a block or two from the sea (which you can see when you step out the door) and right off of main street Dun Laoghaire. Close to transit to Dublin and the aircoach to the airport. I would highly recommend some of the establishments in Sandycove, such as Fitzgerald's Pub and Weafer & Cooper restaurant (this one is really excellent). Sunshine Cafe in Dun Laoghaire was ok. Definitely go for a walk on Dun Laoghaire pier. I would also recommend the spa in the nearby Royal Marine Hotel.
Some issues: the apartment does not have internet. Another issue was that I told Ruairi that we needed two sets of keys, to which he responded that his friend had the second set and we could get it from him, but then didn't tell us how to get in touch with his friend. It seemed like too much of a hassle to seek out this illusive second set, but in the end we could have used them. Ruairi also did not provide towels.
Overall, the price is right and I'm happy my friend and I stayed here rather than in central Dublin.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
