I live in great basement flat in the beautiful neighbourhood of Rathmines which was recently voted as one of the top 4 places to live in the whole of Ireland! It's cosy and comfortable and easily sleeps 2. The smart TV and rear patio are a big plus!
Other Things to Note
This is a 1 bedroom apartment but for extra guests, there are 2 comfortable fold out couches in the kitchen/sitting room area.
We had a great stay!
The apartment was just as pictured (minus the guitar), and as other reviews have mentioned, if you are taller than 6 feet you will have to duck a bit, especially in the shower. That is the only downside to a wonderful and comfortable place, though. There are DVDs, books, a stereo, and local TV available for in-house entertainment.
The location is a 5 minute walk to restaurants, shops, and bars in Rathmines. We took taxis from the nearby Tesco each morning and it cost us less than 10 Euros to get into the city center. There are also bus stops nearby.
Cormac was always quick to respond to any questions I had and was very helpful with getting us to the apartment. He went out of his way to look up bus routes from Dublin Port and the city center. We had a late check-in, and Cormac was out of town, but we called him from our taxi and he gave the driver directions. Cormac's brother Eoin met us at the apartment. He gave us a quick and thorough tour, and was very friendly and welcoming. He assured us we could contact him anytime if we had any issues.
I would absolutely recommend this host and apartment! Thanks, Cormac and Eoin!
Cormac's apartment has all you need for a few days in Dublin. The apartment is in a good location around 3km from the city centre. There are a number of buses a few minutes away; a supermarket and numerous places to eat in the immediate area. The apartment itself is a basement flat and is perfect for 2 people. All communication was easy; no problems at all from booking to leaving. Overall we had a positive stay.
Got to meet Eoghan and his lovely family, Cormac's brother. Absolutely lovely and very pleasant to deal with. Apartment was lovely and very cosy. Close to the city center (20 min walk) which was ideal and shops are 5 min walk from the house. Would definitely recommend to stay here.
Great space! Looked exactly as it did in the pictures and was in a wonderful location. We were able to walk easily into the city and were very comfortable in the cozy apartment. Cormac was very accommodating!
Nice apartment! Very clean and cute! Great and safe area! Walkable distance to restaurants and pubs! Overall we had a great time!
Accueil super sympa. Cormac et son frère Eoin sont très serviables. Quartier tranquille.
Cormac was a great host, and was welcoming us to a tidy and clean appartment. He informed us about the appartment and the area, and had basic things like towles and some basic groceries ready for us in the appartment. The location for the appartment was perfect, it was just a short walk to Rathmines, a small and nice city centre. There was a few minutes with bus to the city centre of Dublin.
The only thing is that the shower was a bit low (the roof was low). This is even just a tiny bagatelle, because the standards on the rest of the appartment was great! I will reccomend this appartment for Dublin visitors!
I'm a law graduate who has a passion for traveling the globe and meeting new people and experiencing new cultures. I like to travel somewhere new whenever I have spare time so my apartment is often available.
I am lucky to live in a cosy little apartment in Rathmines (the coolest neighbourhood in Dublin!) and I love being able to share my apartment with fellow travelers when I'm not in Dublin.
I only rent out my place when I'm not in Dublin so the entire apartment will be yours. Luckily my brother and his wife live next door so there will always be a friendly neighbour to help you out and give you any advice/assistance you may need.
I have been very lucky to meet some wonderfully kind and interesting people since I started hosting on Airbnb and I'm sure this will continue!
I look forward to meeting you! :)
