Très bon accueil. appartement bien équipé, très propre, situé dans un quartier un peu excentré, mais liaison rapide en bus vers le centre. Pas de location de vélo à proximité, dommage.
The appartment was very clean and comfortable with everything you would need for a stay in Dublin. We particularly liked the DVD player for a quiet night in. There are local amenities and not too far into the City centre. Liam was very responsive with any query we had throughout our stay and was particularly flexible about the number of nights we wanted to stay. Would recommend.
This was a great apartment to stay at during our time in Dublin. The apartment comfortably fit 5 of us and the kitchen space was perfect. It's a little farther out from the city center, but there are plenty of cafes, restaurants, and groceries stores near-by to get anything you may need. The bus stop is right there as well to bring you into the city. Also, the pick-up service from the airport was well worth it!
As this was my first experience using Airbnb, I was a little nervous about the whole process. However, Liam made it an amazing/easy/safe time. Unfortunately we did not get to meet him personally, however he had everything set up perfectly. He set us up with a ride from the airport to the apartment, when we landed in Dublin..and the driver had the keys for us. This was because we arrived very late in the evening..and it was very nice how flexible Liam was with the timing. The apartment was very clean, nice, and perfect for five people. The shower worked properly, the kitchen had all the utensils you could ever need, the wifi worked pretty well, there was a dish washer, washing machine, and a t.v. with lots of movies to watch. Whenever we had any questions I would shoot Liam an e-mail and he responded very quickly. He even let us check out late on Sunday because we were running behind schedule. The only downfall of the entire experience was that the apartment was a little bit further from the city center than we wanted...however if you don't mind walking 25 minutes, you should be fine. Or a cab ride split between four people is around 2 euro each. Overall, I am very pleased with our stay at this apartment and I would definitely recommend it to anyone. Liam was wonderful!!
The flat was very clean and as described. The double bed and a single occupy the main room which houses the en suite. There is also a sofa bed. Liam was prompt and clear in his communications. The photos are slightly generous as to size, I think it would have been a squeeze to have 5 of us-especially sharing one bathroom.
My family and I had a wonderful time in Dublin! Liam arranged our transportation from the airport to the apartment for us and he was at the apartment to greet us when we arrived. Liam was very nice and helpful with the bus schedule, things to do, and places to eat! The bus stop was maybe a 5 minute walk and the local grocery store was right across the street from the bus stop. We would definitely stay at Liam's in the future if we make it back to Ireland!
Liam was great to contact before our stay. His apartment is in a central location and we enjoyed the local pubs and the relative ease of getting into the city. While not in the city centre the transport to the centre was easy to negotiate

About the Host, Liam
I grew up in the tourist business as my parents ran a hotel in Kildare so I have always wanted to get back into the hosptality industry. I have owned this house from the early '90's when I returned from New York where I had lived for a number of years. I have been in the buidling trade for the last 20 years so I thought I would combine the two and refurbish the house and provide rental accommodation in an extremely convenient locations to tourists.
