Welcome to my home - a spacious loft-style apartment on the 4th floor of a beautifully renovated Distillery on the banks of the Tolka River with 2 bedrooms, one en-suite double room and another one with futon that becomes a double room too. If you ask me what makes a place unique, I can easily say the people! If there is a spark, if there is a chemistry between the host and the guests, then the trip becomes unique! I will do my utmost to offer all guests a warm welcome and smile, as well as my will to help them and make their trip to Dublin a fantastic experience.

My Guests are welcome at all times to use the open plan living area & kitchen, as well as all appliances (including a 42" flat screen TV and surround sound system). There is a lift for the whole building just for your information. Bring your own Nespresso capsules and live the experience of an authentic Italian espresso or Americano and who knows maybe we are all going to meet George Clooney afterwards!!! haha!!!
Interaction with Guests
I can be very funny as well as very light during your stay based on the fact that I am living here too, it depends of what my quests want. Let me entertain you and you will have a lifetime experience visiting Dublin and Ireland! Leave your comment on my mirror and smile!
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!
Had an absolutely amazing time in Dublin. Anastazio's apartment made it even better. He was very welcoming and happy to share, which made the experience even more comfortable.
He even went out his way to buy a birthday cake for my girlfriend as we were down celebrating for her birthday. If we ever come back to Dublin we will 100% stay at Anastazio's apartment again. Thankyou for being a super host.
Anastazio is an amazing host! We used this Apartment for a photoshoot and he was more than accomodating. He made everyone feel welcome and relaxed and was present if we needed anything at all..he is also a lot of fun and very entertaining :D Would definitely be happy to visit again!!
FABULOUS stay in a GORGEOUS apartment with a SUPER-host! We enjoyed every single moment of it!!! A must stay place if you are traveling to Dublin!
From the beginning we arrived, we were already impressed by the building itself - a former whiskey distillery which was renovated and now it has a great modern touch. The apartment is exactly as displayed on the pictures - modern, cosy and clean - all what you need to have for a comfortable stay.
From Anastazio we have received tons of helpful information about the city and most convenient ways of getting around. Thank you for being awesome!!!
Die Unterkunft entsprach unseren Vorstellungen. Es wirkt auf den Bildern zwar etwas größer als es wirklich ist, dennoch ist es schön und gut gelegen. Einziger Nachteil ist, dass man wenig bis keine Privatsphäre hat. Der Gastgeber war während unseres Aufenthalts immer zu Hause, wodurch man doch wenig Privatsphäre hatte, was teilweise schade war. Der Gastgeber ist wirklich sehr sehr nett und zuvorkommend und hat auch einen Abend für uns gekocht. Wir waren mit 2 Pärchen dort und eines musste auf einer Schlafcouch schlafen, welche nicht so bequem ist und auch relativ klein, wenn man groß ist. Der Gastgeber hat auf der Couch geschlafen weswegen man ungern im Wohnzimmer war um abends z.b. mal zusammen zu sitzen.
Für 4 Personen, speziell für Pärchen finde ich es persönlich nicht so geeignet, da man doch zu wenig/keine Privatsphäre hat.
Aber der Gastgeber ist wirklich sehr sehr nett!
Dear Mirijam, after compliments I would like to thank you for your review. As I cannot speak German I wish I have understood your review and I 'll try to reply on that.I value your feedback and really makes me wonder what I could do so to avoid a similar feedback in future. I really enjoyed your stay in my distillery loft and I can easily say that I was really impressed from your family. Allow me to share my thoughts with you: I am really sure that you really enjoyed your stay at my loft although your concerns about "privacy". I can understand your concerns. Privacy is always great but one of the principles of Airbnb is to share, to enjoy and to be part of the everyday life of your host. The whole Airbnb Philosophy is what makes it different than staying in a hotel room! Meeting new people, new cultures, interact and laugh with people you never had the chance to meet and of course to pay less than in a normal hotel room. To be honest with you, there are times that I like privacy but I like more to share moments and to communicate with my guests. And this is what I did with you too with pleasure of course. As it is clear mentioned in the reservation details your booking was for a private room, so obviously your privacy was 100% at your room only. I would be more than happy to offer you the whole apartment (upon availability) but I wasn't aware about that, you never asked it. I am really sorry that you found the apartment a bit smaller than the web photos. I would like to inform you that an official photographer from Airbnb has taken the pictures that I have on my listing and you can easily check the logo of Airbnb in every pic that I use which means that the photo has been verified first from Airbnb. Once again I would like to thank you for your value review and I am looking forward to see you in Dublin again. Best Regards, Anastazio
A descrição do anúncio é coerente. O bairro é tranquilo e o apartamento agradável. Vale a pena atentar para as orientações do anfitrião sobre como chegar.
Our stay at Anastazio's Loft was fantastic. Despite the fact that Anastazio could not greet us personally due to an emergency, he made sure that we got the best welcome by one of his friends, Larry.
We were arriving late at night which wasn’t a problem at all. Larry was there waiting for us. We spend 3 nights at the loft and had a wonderful time! 15 minutes walking distance to reach the city center and 5 min with the taxi – perfect location.
The apartment is very chic, stylish and still cozy. We felt (also thanks to Larry) like being at home! This was definitely not our last visit to Dublin and for sure we will be staying at this amazing place again!
Gorgeous Anja! Imagine if you have met me, you would have felt that you own the place :) haha!!! Thank you for your understanding and your kind words!!! You have one night for free no matter what, so come over again, look forward to hosting you and get to knowing you better :)
We came to his door and he invitited us in with a big smile and a great welcome. He showed us everything and gave us advices to get around in Dublin. Unfortunately he was leaving for a trip himself so we could not spent much time together but he helped us as much as he could to have a great time.
We really recommend this place and this host. You won't regret booking this one!

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...!!!
