Interaction with Guests
I interact with my guests as much as possible. I don't reside in the listing but I am just a phone call away. I was born and bred in Dublin and I have a great interest in the City and would be glad to share my intimate knowledge of Dublin with you.
It is an ideal location on a quiet street but still in the heart of the city within walking distance of all of Dublin's wonderful tourist attractions. You are within easy reach of Dublin's most popular pedestrian shopping streets Grafton St and Henry St. or you can take a walk in Trinity College or the cobbled streets in the Temple Bar area with its eclectic mix of bars, restaurants, vintage clothes shops and Arts Centres etc.
The Aircoach from the airport drops you 2 minutes from the Apartment. The apartment is centrally located for walking to all the main tourist attractions. It is an 8 minute bus ride to the city center and the bus stop is only a minute’s walk from the apartment. For those who like to take things a little slower there is access to Dublin's free bikes. The Bike station is within 30 meters of the Apartment.

Patrick was very flexible and accommodating in meeting us at the flat, and the location of the flat is incredible...very central to downtown Dublin. We were able to easily walk to all of the sights we wanted to see! As stated, the flat is the penthouse unit in the building with a lovely outdoor sitting area, which also provides stunning views of John's Lane Church up the street. We saw Patrick several times during our stay, and he was always making sure that we had everything that we needed for a comfortable holiday.
We had an enjoyable stay in Dublin, thanks to the location and
Patrick met us at the entrance to his flat, and led us up the 3 flights of stairs to the apartment. He explained to us some of the workings of the equipment and doors.
The flat is centrally located close to almost everything. It is quite comfortable, and the views from the balcony are great. There was an issue of our feet getting black while walking around inside the flat, but Patrick explained it had something to do with his dry cleaning procedure and to wear slippers around the house.
This was my first air B&B experience where I managed all of the logistics from booking to checkout. Patrick was easy to communicate and quick to reply to my messages/questions. Directions to the apartment was also easy to follow and found the place in no time.
And the apartment itself.....what a great space! Love the rooftop patio with view of the church. Rooms are spacious and light. Location of the apartment is perfect to take a short walk into heart of Dublin. We also found a cute pub just around the corner called The Brazen Head where they play Irish music. My friends and I enjoyed our short time in Dublin and staying at this apartment added additional charm to our trip.
Apartment was just as described. Patrick was really responsive. Late check-in and leaving luggage after check-out wasn't a problem at all. Location was perfect, just outside the hassle of Temple Bar, with some nice places for Breakfast just around the corner.
Patrick, was a brilliant host, He met us upon arrival, went through everything with us, and made us feel very welcome. The apartment was amazing with everything you could wish for, and very comfy beds. Located just minutes walk from Temple Bar in one direction and the Guinness factory the other, its an ideal location for your stay in Dublin.
Patrick is always on hand and really helpful, we would highly recommend this apartment and Patrick to anyone considering visiting Dublin, you won't be disappointed.
The apartment was in a great location within walking distance to city centre and on bus routes. Patrick was a fantastic host meeting us to give us the key and he gave us a very warm welcome and told us about the history of the city. He also provided clear instructions on how to get to the apartment. We had an amazing stay. Highly recommended.
