This apartment is amazing! a fantastic location nestled between the Aviva Stadium, Ballsbridge area and central Dublin. We were able to walk everywhere that we wanted to go, no need for a taxi.
Cathal was a fantastic host, he was really organised and messaged me earlier in the week to check our time of arrival and was on hand on the day to give us directions. He also stocked the cupboards with fresh milk and bread, a really welcome touch. There was also lots of little essentials like shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, butter, jam, teabags, coffee, sugar etc which made us feel at home.
The apartment is spacious with two big double bedrooms, a lovely living space and lots of storage. It was also spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated.
It also has underground parking which is so useful.
I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to spend time in glorious Dublin.
Cathal was great on arrival, he showed us around and asked if we needed anything, he also left us some bits to get us started. The apartment is in a great location and has lovely views of the river, would highly recommend and we will definitely be back :)
Very nice appartement well located in the Dock area. Close to the busstops from the airport. City center easy accessibel by walking or hiring a city bike. Very friendly hosts.
We really enjoyed our five night stay at Longboat Quay. The apartment is scrupulously clean, well appointed and comfortable. The location is a short walk to the heart of Dublin, but is in a nice quiet location where one can get a break from it all.
The host met us at the apartment when we arrived in order to show us the features of the apartment and get us set up.
I highly recommend this apartment for family or two-couple stays.
This is a great flat in a wonderful, quiet, modern neighbourhood with easy access to all the riverside attractions. Clean, comfortable, with all the amenities one could need. We were a family of 4 with two teens, and the only improvement could have come with a king-sized bed for the adults. (But I'm spoiled at home!) Cathal was an excellent host ensuring we were met at a convenient time, and his daughter Amy showed us where everything was. Responses to any questions were lightning fast, and at no time was I ever made to feel there were any 'dumb questions'.
The apartment was nice and clean. Because of the nice location, we were able to explore Dublin by feet. Cathal was very responsive and provided a lot of useful information.

About the Host, Cathal
Hi, I am a Dubliner born and bred and love the city. If my family and I can help to make your trip to Dublin more enjoyable just ask. My wife, Gina, has put together a great tour guide which we leave in the apartment. Feel free to add any of your recommendations or tips.
