Our stay with Johnny was nice. Trying to drive in Dublin was a nightmare, so if you're driving around Ireland, book the car when you're done in Dublin. Everything is close enough to Johnny's to walk to, which was great. The room itself wasn't spectacular, but it also wasn't bad. Nice enough for the location and how cheap it was!
I stayed 5 days at Johnny's place. Johnny is very nice guy. He served me a cup of coffee at my arrival, which was very nice. I got hair dryer from Johnny what was very handy. It is fantastic place to stay. I had a room with a double, comfortable bed, tv, desk, sofa and massive wardrobe. Location is great, in the city center, close to shops, park, bus stops. So it is easy to go to the airport. Great apt!!!!
Stayed 1st weekend in Feb. Great location. Safe area day and night. Good grocery shopping and entertainment eateries bars. Short walk to the city centre and highspots south of the river. Before we arrived thought Johnny stayed at this address too. No! He rents out the 3 rooms in this apartment, so other guests are your neighbours. We only found this out when we arrived. Kitchen & bathroom are shared for these rooms. Potentially 6 folk in a queue!
We did get told to bring towels (via email) but after we booked. The Spanish guests we met, didn't know about this until they asked us if we knew where they were kept. Linen was fresh in our room (the middle one) - still in the packet. I'm OK with making my bed but not expecting it on arrival. The double bed takes the full width of the room. Its really not the right arrangement. There are 2 mattresses on this bed making it extra soft & unnecessary (or if that's your thing - great). Why 2 ? Is one 'done' & due for uplift?
Johnny told us of other commitments he had and that he might not see us again before we leave. Key to be posted inside after leaving locking up.
An experienced AIRbnb host - but lately has been neglecting the maintenance and cleanliless of this address as you may have read from others. Very evident in the condition of the rubbish bins and the bathroom fittings. Believe me, this was not the work of the previous guest that week. Its just not getting cleaned. Light bulbs are also missing. I had to drag a hairmonster out the bath plug to allow it to drain better. Didn't get all of it either - not pleasant and no guest should have to do that. There is a vacuum cleaner in the hallway but I didn't book this place to spend time cleaning it up or moaning about it over the phone. A poor experience that could easily be avoided with just a little more honesty and, after guests have gone. a couple of hours to check whats needing attention.
Good facilities in the kitchen and if you are long term renting there's a washing machine. Excellent wifi too. And the whole flat is warm & dry.
Would have been useful to know the apartment number in advance for the intercom, as it was pouring with rain. Via phone, Johnny came down from the 4th floor to open the door. Perhaps that's his personal touch. Or it doesn't work.
Our host has a lot going on and may be spreading himself too thin to give 100% for this place just now but guests will be disappointed and reviews will be on the negative side until Johnny returns to his undoubted best hospitable ways.
I was a bit worried because I had read comments about the appartment being dirty... It's not true. The place is, in fact, old, but very nice, and Johnny is a great host ! I would come back if I needed.
Johnny was a warm host and gave us some advises and good plan for our WE, the location was perfect in the center of Dublin
but the apartment was very dirty, the bathroom was unusable, and I think even if the price is not very high, a minimum of cleanliness and equipment quality must be (website hidden): after he read my review, he treat me a cunt, very classy and polite from him
The property is well located, it is just 10 minutes from downtown.
The apartment is very dirty (I'll spare you the details), shame to have this type of property on airbnb.
we never saw the host communication only by phone, we had to collect keys from a fast food (it was the case of several guests).
we would have liked canceled the lease except that the cancellation conditions were not in our favor:
"To receive a full refund, cancellation must be made five days before full local arrival time shown on the listing (or 3:00 p.m. if it is not specified.) For example, if the arrival is provided on a Friday, you need to cancel no later than the last Sunday before the arrival time shown. "
In summary, I do not recommend anyone this property, fortunately this is not the case with other ads airbnb!
Great location and room was nice and clean!
Extremely nice place for an amazing price. The room is spacious and the bathroom very clean. The place is also easily accessible with the Aircoach. There was some confusion at my side about the date of departure, but Johnny was very understanding. This has been one of my best travel experiences. Would recommend!!
Our journey began with a long delay, but fortunately we get a warm welcom at Johnny's BnB. The room was clean and equipped with all the basic facilities. We've had a nice weekend and want to thank Johnny for his hospitality.
Didn't actually meet Johnny, but left instructions so I could get into the room and had no problems at all. The rooms great and in a good location!
