About This Listing
Charming,cosy & tidy one bedroom apartment in South Dublin. 25 mins to City Centre. and 15 mins away from seaside villages/promenades :) AirCoach to and from the Airport stops directly outside my apartment building - very convenient!
The entire apartment will be yours for the duration of your stay. Comfortably accommodates 2 guests.
I hope you will make yourself at home during your stay and make use of what I have available here. Just to mention there is a computer in the living room that is not really functional as a computer because I use my laptop and use the computer mostly for watching Netflix or listening to music :) There is just a closet in the hallway that will not be accessible as I use it as storage but other than that, there is nowhere 'off limits' :)
Interaction with Guests
I will meet you at the apartment to welcome you,show you around and hand you the keys and will meet you there again upon checkout. I am absolutely always reachable by phone. I will be staying with a family member just a few minutes away, so if you need anything at all you can always give me a shout:)
It's a good location in that it is between the City Centre and the Sea! The stop for the most frequent and quickest bus into the City Centre is located directly outside my apartment and it is a quick 20 minute bus ride right into the City Centre with a bus lane the entire way. There is also a bus that will take you to the Dun Laoghaire pier (where you will see many lovely promenades to stroll along. From there,you will also have the option of taking a quick train ride to beautiful seaside villages such as Dalkey,Killiney,Monkstown etc., highly recommended) If you are hiring a car during your stay, I am located 5 minutes away from the motorway, so getting here from the Airport is super easy and you avoid the traffic of the city centre! Two really great pubs (The Galloping Green and the Leopardstown Inn), a Spar store, a bakery and a hairdresser are within walking distance.
Other Things to Note
My building is located right on the bus route to the city centre but as my apartment faces the quiet courtyard side, it is very quiet for a good nights sleep!
Nothing out of the ordinary in terms of House Rules. This apartment is my home that I take a lot of pride in, have put time and effort into and I request that it is left in the same state it was in upon checking in! I have really lovely neighbours who always keep super quiet and I like to return the respect by keeping the noise levels down. With that in mind, there are no parties,extra guests, loud music permitted. No smoking is permitted inside the apartment (there is a balcony though).
Drei Tage buchten mein Freund und ich Carleens Wohnung. Sie begrüßte uns sehr herzlich und zeigte uns die einzelnen Zimmer. Die Wohnung ist sehr schön und modern eingerichtet. Man fühlte sich von anhieb an wohl. Die Nachbarn hat man so gut wie gar nicht gehört, was sehr angenehm war. Carleen sendete uns eine Email wie man mit dem Bus am besten in die Stadt fährt, wo der nächste Supermarkt ist, Tipps wo man gut Essen gehen kann und Orte die sich lohnen anzugucken. (Diese waren wirklich sehr hilfreich) Die Busstation ist zu Fuß eine Minuten entfernt und man konnte direkt ohne umsteigen in die Innenstadt fahren.
Dublin hat uns sehr gut gefallen und beim nächsten Mal würden wir wieder bei Carleen anfragen, da alles sehr gut und unkompliziert geklappt hat. Vielen Dank Carleen für den schönen Aufenthalt.! :)
Awesome host, beautiful flat. Carleen is super friendly, helpful and attentive. We stayed 3 nights - the flat looks even better in real life, we really didn't want to leave. Clean and comfortable. Air coach route and buses into the city centre stop right outside. Spar, bakery and decent restaurant nearby. Will happily stay again and recommend to others!
We had a wonderful time in Carleen's apartment - it was very neat, tidy and cozy. Even though we didn't get the chance to meet Carleen in person, she was very friendly, corteous (she sent us useful information by e-mail concerning the local area, shops, etc.) and easy to stay in touch with before and during our stay in her flat. She'd have even let us eat from her personal stock! Wifi worked very well, we had everything we needed in the apartment, even fresh towels, and the flat's very close to the next bus stop. The only thing that wasn't too convenient is that it takes you a good 40min bus ride to get to the city centre, but even that will be easily forgotten given the fact that Carleen is a great host and very well organised!
Thanks a lot for this opportunity, Carleen, we really got to enjoy Dublin!
The appartement is really 100% as stated in the description; it's neat, clean and well equipped. The only disadvantage is the location, for us it was just too far from the sea and he city centre although the busses do run every 10 minutes. Biggest problem with the location is that there are absolutely no shops within walking distance. That said, we enjoyed our stay at Carleen's in Dublin!
