About this listing
Two double bedroom apartment, with two double couchbeds in the living room, in Dublin city centre area - perfect base for exploring Dublin surrounded by great pubs & restaurants!
I hope I can be your host and offer a great experience staying in my city centre apartment! Recently awarded 'Excellence' by Tripadvisor!
l check my email constantly and endeavour to reply to all emails very promptly as I know it helps you plan ... PLEASE CONTACT ME TO CONFIRM AVAILABILITY BEFORE YOU SEND A BOOKING REQUEST ... Thanks so much!
This listing is for my entire apartment which consists of two double bedrooms and two large comfortable double couchbeds in the livingroom - accommodating a maximum of 8 guests - though usually I say 6 with comfort!
You also have a well equipped kitchen, a large comfortably furnished living room with flat screen TV, satellite channels and a long balcony with great views of Dublin city centre and the Four Courts!
When we meet I will give you a lot of local recommendations but see the Guidebook here on my listing for some of those tips in advance!
People book through airbnb to get local information and a friendly welcome in your host's home rather than a neutral sterile apartment - when you book the whole apartment you will be free to enjoy it solely but the warm welcome is always offered!
I provide basic breakfast items for you for the first morning - there are many supermarkets within a few minutes' walk with a corner store at my building!
These accommodations are also listed separately: Dublin Centre Home from Home Rooms 1 & 2.
There is a nice bathroom (NEWLY REFURBISHED) with an electric shower offering unlimited hot water for showers!
If you are not looking to rent the entire apartment please check individual listings for availability as often some of the rooms will be available ...
I am within very easy walking distance of anywhere in the city centre! If you want to use public transport a bus stop to the city centre is 2 minute's walk away and I am 4 minutes' walk from the Luas (tram) Red line from where you can have a direct link to the National Convention Centre if you are attending a convention there.
Please check the availability of each listing I offer on it's calender as they can differ ..... thanks! - its always worthwhile to message me anyway ... as I can sometimes have availability at the last minute!
If you would like any hints on what to do around Dublin or indeed in planning an itinerary around just get in touch! I also love history and have a keen interest in photography and am happy to point you towards some Dublin gems!

I live in Dublin city centre in Smithfield just 10 mins walk from the heart of Dublin and it's principal 'boulevard' O'Connell Street and the cool social/bar/restaurant quarter - Temple Bar.
In addition there is a host of shops/restaurants/bars located just steps from your Dublin home from home - see the gallery of pics for some cool places at your doorstep!
I have a lot of experience in hosting people and showing people my city – I love talking about recent Irish history and my apartment looks onto the Four Courts building – one of the many historical buildings in Dublin! I can leave you to your own schedule or am happy to suggest good things to do and see, both in Dublin and in the surrounding countryside and beyond .... from galleries and museums to shopping to country / historical walks – just ask – I am happy to point you in the right direction – Dublin awaits you!
There are many tourist attractions such as Jameson Distillery and National Museum, Collins Barracks along with the famous Cobblestone Bar, renowned for Irish music and a great pint of Guinness in Delaney's, right at your doorstep! Just across Dublin's principal river, the Liffey, is St. James' Gate - home of Guinness since 1759!

The apartment is located very central and close to many bars and restaurants - Dublin is a great town to party in however the apartment is in a mixed development and includes some young families - it is expected that you respect your neighbours - no parties are allowed. Any infraction of this rule will result in immediate termination of your stay in the apartment - this is to ensure quiet enjoyment of the apartment for all - thanks!
