City centre studio apartment in Dublin 4, fully furnished, in an old fashioned vintage sixties period apartment block in need of updating, but this flat is updated with sound proofed windows, central heating, and fast broadband, though it retains its quaint character. It is situated on the second floor accessible by lift. It has a bedroom-sittingroom, kitchen and bathroom. Suitable for a couple or single person, with a king size bed, comfy armchair and large sofa. The flat is 370 sq.ft. (35 sq.m) in size.
Located in a prestigious and leafy residential area beside Leeson Street Bridge, in the in the heart of Georgian Dublin, the apartment overlooks the grand canal, and is within ten minutes’ walk to Stephens Green, Grafton Street, and Merrion Square, and within easy walking distance of Dublin Castle, Trinity College, Guinness Brewery, Christchurch, Ballsbridge, Ranelagh and Donnybrook. The apartment is in a fantastic location, close to restaurants, shops, theatres, and the National Concert Hall. It is beside bus stops, and three minutes’ walk to the nearest LUAS Station (Dublin city trams), Charlement Station.
All bed linens/ towels supplied. Fully equipped kitchen with microwave, fridge and cooker.
Interaction with Guests
I am almost always there to welcome my guests, to guide them from the bus stop, and to help them carry their bags in. I usually have a welcome pack of groceries to settle them in. I introduce them to the apartment, and answer any questions. I will bend over backwards to help and accommodate my guests, and will be delighted to answer any questions of any sort they might ask. But then I leave my guests to their own privacy, to get on with the business of holidaying or work, in the knowledge that I am on the telephone at all times to help if need be.
Other Things to Note
Please note: I cannot generally provide parking, as this is a city centre apartment, and parking is at a premium. However, there is free street parking on Saturday evenings and all day Sunday, and for short periods, I can offer visitor's parking permits. However, there is convenient public transport, and the heart of the city is within easy walking distance.
Strictly no smoking, no pets
Ellie was a wonderful host! Her directions to the apartment from the air coach was perfect. The description and photos of the apartment are spot on to how the apartment is. We really enjoyed this apartment, the location was solid and it was the perfect size for the 2 of us. We really had no issues the entire time and we felt very comfortable. The neighbourhood is quiet and peaceful. Ellie was just wonderful. She met us at the apartment and gave us a complete run through of the apartment and also had a box filled with things to do in Dublin. We were very surprised to see that Ellie had stocked fridge and cupboards full of food! We had enough for breakfast every morning. I highly recommend this apartment to anyone who is staying in Dublin!
Elli was a fantastic hostess, who provided us with a lot of helpful information about Dublin and it's surroundings and gave us some great recommendations for restaurants, cafes or spots which you should go to. The flat is very cosy, lovley furnished and fitted our needs perfectly. The bathroom and the kitchen were very clean and equiped with everything you desire. The flat is also well connected to the public traffic network so you can get easily to the city centre or wherever you want.
In conclusion we had a wonderful stay and I highly recommend this place and Elli as a host. Thank you very much, Elli!
Ellie was an absolutely wonderful host! She was very responsive and helpful in giving us specific information on how to get to the apartment, plus tips for Dublin once we got there. The apartment was perfect for our needs. Ellie thought of everything someone could need, with toiletries in the bathroom and electronic adapters. Our only complaint was that it was a bit of a walk to anything/city center. All in all, we had a great stay.
Thank you for a lovely stay! Ellie was a great hostess, eager to help out, and the food she provides is a good example of the small touches that make a big difference. The apartment was cost and homely, felt like a home away from home, and so close the the centre of Dublin, and good links to elsewhere. I highly recommend this place!
Ellie was a fabulous host. Really well located flat, easily accessible from the airport air coach. Local area was nice and the flat had everything that we needed for the weekend.
Ellie was an amazing host, very friendly and welcoming, and always available for any questions. She really went above and beyond, from offering to pick me up at the bus stop (which is conveniently located less than a 5 min walk from the studio) to providing food for sandwiches and breakfasts during my stay. There is a folder of information about local restaurant recommendations and attractions, perfect for my first time in Dublin. I felt completely safe walking the area throughout the week. The studio was very clean. The wifi worked great. I would definitely stay again. Thanks, Ellie!
Ellie is very enthusiastic lady who made us feel welcome and at home. She even left us some breakfast although that's not officially included. The cute apartment is clean, well furnished and decorated. It was not warm for a January, but not too chilly either, just comfortable. Ellie is helpful, explaining all the good spots to visit and she even offered to print our boarding passes. The shops and pubs are all in walking distance (10 a 15 minutes) through a neighbourhood where you can safely walk, even at night. It was great to have our own bathroom and kitchen. We heard no noise from the neighbours or the street.
We enjoyed our stay and recommend Ellie. I would definitely come back.
Hi Hanna, thank you for the kind review. I am sorry the heating was not high enough, it is simply that the heating system was very complicated, and people often find it confusing. I left an extra heater behind the armchair, did you use that? I will take on board your advice about the towels also. Thanks for the feedback. kind regards, Ellie
