Great apartment situated in private and secluded sylvan setting on the southern slopes of Killiney Hill near the sea. With own front door, free parking and easy proximity to motorways and public transport to bring you into all that Dublin has to offer, this is a super home base.
Newly refurbished self contained apartment adjoining but completely separate from family home. The apartment has a separate entrance, off street parking, double bedroom with plenty of wardrobe space, living room with kitchen (full cooker, hob, fridge, washer/dryer) and large bathroom with full bath and shower fitting. There is a private secluded garden out the back. We'll leave a starter pack of groceries for you when you arrive. There's no additional charge for cleaning.
The apartment is located on the southern slopes of Killiney Hill, close to the beach and within walking distance of shops, pubs and restaurants and a hotel (Fitzpatrick's Castle). If you are arriving without a car, you can take an Aircoach from the airport and we'll collect you from the last stop in Killiney (50 mins, hourly service). We'll also drop you back to the Aircoach at the end of your stay.
The bus stop is a 10 minute walk away from the apartment, with buses going to Dun Laoghaire (15 mins) and Dublin City Centre (40 mins). The heritage town of Dalkey with its range of shops, restaurants and pubs is 5 minutes drive or you can walk to the Dart station (15 mins walk) and take a short train trip (5 mins). If you are hiring a car, we have access to both the M50 and N11 very close by. The N11 will bring you to Wicklow, Wexford and the South, the M50 gives access to all other directions around the country.
Interaction with Guests
If you have any questions or want any help during your stay, your hosts are only next door and are delighted to help out or provide local information.
From the apartment you can walk over Killiney golf course via a public right of way and on up to Killiney Hill which has incredible views of Killiney Bay. If you continue on you can head for the beach or to Dalkey village where you'll have a great choice of coffee shops, restaurants, pubs and shops. Nearby there are also great walks along the pier in Dun Laoghaire or up into the Wicklow mountains.

Other Things to Note
If you're arriving from the airport by public transport, we will collect you from the Aircoach stop at Fitzpatrick's Hotel in Killiney (no extra charge).
The listing was just as described and Venetia was very helpful and friendly! She even picked us up at the bus drop-off at the Fitzpatrick hotel and drove us to her place and put enough food in the fridge for breakfast. The apartment was very clean, modern, and well-furnished, and it is just a two-minute walk away from a series of trails leading in and around the beautiful neighborhood of Killiney. It is also within walking distance of two corner stores with basic groceries and slightly longer walking distance (20 minutes) of a large grocery store (Tesco). Pubs in several directions, too, the best of which is the Druid's Chair, just over the hill overlooking Killiney Bay. We had a really lovely time!
The apartment was really nice, our host Venetia met us on the morning of our arrival. She was very helpful friendly and polite providing maps and information about the local area. As we were out throughout most of our stay airbnb provided an effective communication method that I feel also respected our privacy. All in all a comfortable stay at reasonable price close to Dublin City yet far enough away we could enjoy the quiet of a small village. I would recommend this apartment in the future
Great apartment in a great location. Everything was like new, with superb hosts. Could not have asked for more.
We really enjoyed our stay in Killiney! Venetia and Philip were very accommodating and helpful. The location is perfect, lots of lovely walks around Kiliney and Dalkey nearby. The place was very clean and the host provided a lovely 'welcome pack' for us. I would definitely recommend staying here!
The description of the apartment was very accurate and my friend and I were very pleased with our stay. Venetia and Philip were super accommodating and were more than happy to answer our questions. The apartment is a bit far from Dublin city centre and the neighborhood is very quiet, but it normally only took 40 minutes on the bus to get to the city. We really appreciated that they thought of everything: they provided chargers, groceries, etc. We were also so thankful that Philip woke up in the middle of the night to drive us to and from the Aircoach station both when we arrived and departed, making travel so much easier on us. Overall, they were fantastic hosts!
The apartment was exactly as described. Venetia was very helpful both before and during our stay, and made us feel very welcome. Her instructions on everything were clear and thoughtful and detailed, such as the best travel route. The location was great for exploring South Dublin and Wicklow. In fact we travelled to Powerscourt in Enniskerry, County Wicklow, in under 30 mins, which was so beautiful, even in winter. If anyone else is interested, take the first Greystones exit off the N11 and follow the signs for Enniskerry and Powerscourt. In Enniskerry Village turn left then right. The apartment had everything we needed. Venetia so thoughtfully provided food for breakfast. She had thought of everything, even iPad/iPhone chargers. I loved all the colourful pictures everywhere., and there was access to a private garden with a Gazebo which we could access through patio doors which looked so inviting, although it was to cold and wintry to use it. Thanks for a lovely stay to Venetia and Philip
I would highly recommend Venetia's apartment. The apartment was in perfect location. Just off motorway . You are in minutes to city centre than
