The penthouse offers modern, bright open plan accommodation. There are two bedrooms(one en-suite) a large sitting room, fully fitted kitchen and a separate bathroom. It has the added benefit of a large roof terrace.
Many of Dublin's great tourist attractions are within walking distance of the Apartment. One of Dublin's popular music venues Vicars St is only 100 m away. While The Temple Bar area and Dublin's oldest Pub "The Brazen Head" are close by. The airport bus stops just a short walk from the Apartment.
This is a private, self-contained penthouse. The main front door is shared with three other apartments in the building. There are no residential units either side of the building but it is in a residential area.
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.

Notre voyage à Dublin a été mémorable et le séjour à l'appartement de Patrick y est pour beaucoup! L'appartement est parfait pour une famille.
Patrick was a great host and met us as we arrived. He was always in contact leading up to our arrival and during our stay when any assistance was required. He really helped us allowing us a later check out and storing our luggage as we had a late flight even though the next guests were checking in.
I stayed at Patrick's apartment for four nights. It was wonderful. He was a great host and the apartment was exactly as pictured. The location is perfect for anyone looking to explore the main sites by foot.
Patrick was an excellent host. He was very responsive to questions prior to our trip. He met us at the bus stop near the flat despite us being delayed and even helped us with our luggage. He showed us around the flat and also provided us with advice on things to see and places to visit. He made us feel very welcome. The flat was beautiful and clean, and met all of our needs and expectations. We loved sitting on the roof top terrace. Most of what we wanted to do was within easy walking distance. We also loved having the Brazen Head so nearby which Patrick had recommended. Thanks Patrick for a wonderful stay in Dublin!
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 was extremely accommodating to some of our odd needs, like arriving at 5:30 am which really helped start our trip out on the right foot. The apartment is just as described and pictured in the listing. Location was nice - right in the middle of the Guinness Brewery, Jameson Distillery, Temple Bar area, St. Patrick's Cathedral, and Trinity College (all an easy walk). There was also a couple of grocery stores near by that was great for some odds and ends.
