Conveniently located in the inner Northside suburb Drumcondra, my flat is only minutes from Dublin city centre by bus or bike, or about 25 minutes on foot. Croke Park is less than 5 minutes walking distance, ideal place for fans of concerts and games. The local pubs, shops and restaurants are just down the road and Fairview Park (one of the most beautiful parks in Dublin after the world's famous Phoenix Park) is less than 900 meters and the sea from there less than 10 minutes walk.
Free off-street parking is included in the price and I can even arrange a resident’s entry permit for match or concert days when the roads are closed to through traffic. 7 minutes walk distance there is a bus stop (Bus 123) that takes you to the centre (O' Conolly) in 6 minutes. The Airport is 20minutes from the apartment by car. If you wish to use the public transportation to reach my place from the Airport then you need to take the Bus Number 41 or 16 or a specific Aircoach (not all the Aircoach buses stop there) and the Bus Stop is No. 47 - Drumcondra Rd, Drumcondra Station-Quinn's Pub. From there you turn left in the Clonliffe Road, you walk for about 7 minutes and the Distillery Road is at your left. You keep walking till the end of the Distillery road and the building is in front of you. Cross the small bridge and the gate named Distillery Lofts and the entrance of the building is the left one. Check my pics to be familiar with the exterior view of the building. Hope it helps.
Other Things to Note
The second guest under 12 years old in a 2 guest's reservation is free of charge.
Pets allowed as well as smoking. I expect you respect the apartment and the most important to feel like home, so please take off your shoes in order to have our apartment clean but the most important to feel comfortable! Turn off the lights in case you want to leave the apartment, let's make a small effort to protect our environment and save energy!
The time we had with Anastazio was above and beyond anything we could have asked for. It rings true as to why everyone has written positive reviews about him. He was so hospitable and generous that we wanted to stay longer. He has so much personality and joy that is contagious. His home was very neat and tidy and beautiful! He even went out of his way to show us the Dublin nightlife. I would highly recommend him to anyone who stays in Dublin. He was more than just a host, he is now a true friend!
hahaha!!!! You made me blush now Allison!!!!! :) Thank you so much for your awesome review and your kind words, well as you said we are friends now :) Thank you so much, miss you already!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! See you in Hawaii for holidays, I passed the exam successfuly!!! hahaha!!!! :)
Anastazio is the real deal! He is smart, fun and super friendly! Even though he had to work the following day, he went out with us for a few Pint. Not for one minute with him we had to feel like the bloody tourists we were. It just felt like, we belong. Thanks for the heartfelt welcome you gave us in Dublin and I hope I can return the favor in Quito! You are welcome anytime, Mate!
Staying with you was a real adventure Rene! Visiting you in Ecuador can be another one and I really look forward to it! Thank you for your cool character, your great manners and your friendship! See you in Quito for sure, I will do my best to pay you a visit, keep smiling Legend!
Anastazio is by far the best human in all of Dublin!! He welcomed us into his home on our first night here & has treated us like family even after we left Dublin. My sister and I (20 & 28) had never been to Ireland. Anastazio texted us along our way to assure that we were safe and having fun as we traveled all around Ireland. Today is our last night in Ireland. We are back and Dublin and even though we are staying closer to the airport tonight, Anastazio still met up with us downtown & made sure we got on the right bus back to our place. He truly is the best! His place is amazing. He even has a phone you can use for free to call home!! He's funny, helpful, and a great entertainer. I only wish we could have stayed more than 2 nights at his place. He is welcomed to stay at our house in Michigan anytime!! He's family now.
Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You made me blush!!!!! :) One of the best reviews ever, thank you so much Megan and Mindy, we both earn from that trip, I earned two beautiful sisters at least!!!! Take care in London, Amsterdam and Paris and don't forget, don't talk to strangers!!! haha!!! I sound like your Big Brother! haaha!!!! Keep smiling, see you next week to share with me your adventures from your euro trip! Love you lots!
Anastazio is a great host living in a superb place. We had some problems with our GPS but Anastazio helped us out. The bed was big enough for 2 1/2, the shower as well as the kitchen are awesome too. Thank you for hosting us our first day of our trip and take care!
I highly recommend staying here!
Anastazio is the perfect host. He is friendly, helpful, charming and genuinely makes you feel at home. Anastazio really did make our stay that little bit more special and memorable. Firstly, he was kind enough to let us check in early and was ready to welcome us with coffee when we arrived. Anastazio was more than happy to help us with directions and give us tips on what to do and where to go which was great as this was our first time in Dublin. He also gave us an Uber taxi code which gave us a free ride which was cool.
Anastazio is perhaps the friendliest and most positive person I have ever met! He really does make you feel at ease! I enjoyed our chats and laughs after the end of a day seeing the sights (the bacardi shots were a treat too!) :)
The apartment is as pictured- modern, stylish and sleek and the bed was super comfy. The apartment is a short bus ride from the city and close to the airport (a short taxi or bus ride away)
If you're a first time user of Airbnb or you're unsure for whatever reason, I can assure you that Anastazio is an awesome host and you'll have a great stay here! I'll definitely be back when I return to Dublin.
Ich habe mit meiner Familie (4 Personen) eine tolle Woche in Dublin verbracht. Die Wohnung hat eine sehr gute Atmosphäre. Abends konnten wir uns nach den Stadtbesichtigungen und Ausflügen sehr gut erholen und morgens haben wir den Tag in der Wohnung mit einem schönen Frühstück angefangen. Es gibt zwei Supermärkte in der Nähe und mit dem Bus kommt man in 10 Min. in das Stadtzentrum. Wir waren mit allem sehr zufrieden und können Anastazios Loft nur weiterempfehlen. Anastazio ist ein sehr lieber und hilfsbereiter Gastgeber, der Tag und Nacht erreichbar ist.

About the Host, Anastazio
Hi there! I'm Anastazio, I am half Greek half Italian and as most of all the Greeks and Italians I am warm and passionate with people. I am positive and easy going person with good manners, romance and very good sense of humour! I just came from Dubai and I would like to have friends in order to help me love Dublin more than I love it now. I am here to make you change your opinion about Mediterranean people that they are only womanisers, some of them maybe are, but I and most of us we can be very good hosts!!! I love traveling, I have been to 43 places (abroad) until now so I can totally understand what you need in order to make your accommodation a pleasant stay and your trip here in Ireland and Dublin a lifetime experience. I love cooking, so if you call over we can exchange some good recipes or cook together and have fun before you start exploring the city and the near pubs! Get to know me well and be ready to live your myth...!!!
