About this listing
We have called this apartment The W B Yeats after the famous Irish poet.
We have just completed work on this apartment and have restored it to some of it's former glory with original features such as the marble fireplaces, coving and a beautiful bay window overlooking Dublin city and mountains.

This is a luxury apartment with all the comforts of home. It is a wonderful location close to all the attractions and sights while being a relaxing bright and spacious apartment to come home to at the end of the day.

Interaction with Guests
I manage to meet most guests on arrival but if I can't I nearly always get to meet them before they check out.
My caretaker lives on the premises and he helps to check in guests when I'm unavailable.
I'm always available by phone or email and am happy to assist guests in any way I can.
This street is a beautifully tree lined street which runs right up the the entrance of the Phoenix Park.
This park is the largest urban park in Europe and houses Dublin Zoo and the presidential home and offices as well as a children's playground. It is a wonderful park to visit and spans over 1750 acres.
The street also has beautiful Victorian red bricked houses all along it which date back to the 18th century so it really is a taste of old Dublin.

Liam made us feel very welcome. He was super helpful with all details. The apartment was lovely - clean and beautiful and well equipped. The neighborhood was also enjoyable, convenient and easy to catch a bus, taxi, or walk to city center.
We had a great time. The place was in perfect shape. We were 5 (2 adults + 3 children) and found particularly convenient that there was a bus stop (bus 46A) at the door!!!! This bus takes you in 5 minutes to The Spire!!! We found extraordinary -compared to previous experiences in other places- that everything worked at the house! including the heating!!! The place was warm at your choice at any time of day or night (important if you travel with children). In general, we give Liam and his place the highest grade!!!! and a big thanks!!!
The apartment was (email hidden)rfect for our family's first visit to Ireland. We could easily walk to various areas of Dublin and, if we didn't feel like walking, public transit was just outside the door. Thanks to Liam for spending some time with us on our arrival, helping us get our bearings and offering some suggestions for dining out and sightseeing.
The place was quite lovely and Liam was super helpful. The apartment and it's facilities were great. It was a 30/40 minute walk into town but a pretty straightforward route. Really can't complain about the stay.
The appartment was great! Perfect connection to public transport. Grocery store around the corner and everything was easy to access. Simple handover and everything as expected.
Thanks and if in Dublin defenitly again.
We stayed for a week in May 2014 in Liam's apartment "W B Yeats". Very comfortable place to stay - stylish, the furninshing is in perfect state, the ceiling is pretty high, so it's always very fresh inside and I rested and slept there really well.
The house isn't situated in the very center of the city, buy the nominal center - O'Connell Str. - is within walking distance and we usually did so, but if you're really in hurry you'd better get taxi.
Another plus of the place is that a pretty big shopping center is very close. It includes pretty big Tesco's supermarket and some other shops, and we've even found a shop with electrical supplies where plug converters (Continental -> British) were bought.
The host is an extremely considerate and helpful person, so we're very delighted of out experience with Liam.

About the Host, Liam
I grew up in the tourist business as my parents ran a hotel in Kildare so I have always wanted to get back into the hosptality industry. I have owned this house from the early '90's when I returned from New York where I had lived for a number of years. I have been in the buidling trade for the last 20 years so I thought I would combine the two and refurbish the house and provide rental accommodation in an extremely convenient locations to tourists.
