About this listing
This lovely flat is centrally located in an amazing part of Dublin- just 1min to St. Patrick's Cathedral,3mins to Christ Church. Enjoy the view on both from the terrace with your dearest! Enjoy the Zen approach of simplicity in the heart of Dublin :)
My lovely flat is just right up the street from St. Patrick's Cathedral. You can enjoy the view from the terrace having a glass of wine (or Guinness!). Also, during the St. Patrick's festival in March, the street of my flat is the ending point of St. Patrick's Day parade!!! Be ready to book for the infamous Irish saint day celebrations well ahead!
I decorated the house with Buddhism Zen ornaments shipped from Bali, Indonesia. It brings me delight to share the simplicity, tranquility and elegance of Asian-inspired art in this part of the world. It is the epitome of east meets west!
My flat has two bedrooms, the first with a double bed and second with a single bed. Each has many fluffy pillows, lots of drawers and a big closet- plenty of space to spread out and feel at home for a few days or weeks! The kitchen is really cute and is well-equipped with an electric hot-water kettle, microwave, toaster dishes, four-burner stove and oven, and even a washing machine. The couches are comfy to snuggle up with a good book on a drizzly Dublin evening at home, and I do my best to keep the flat fully stocked with candles to create more natural lighting and ambiance.
Despite the noise outside, after all, you are in the heart of Dublin, my wish is that you find peace and tranquility here. (And if you're not used to city noise at night, please bring along earplugs-at least for the first night ;)
Dublin is a somewhat small and very interesting city full of history in every nook and cranny! The neighborhood is full of mystery, medieval architecture and beauty. Grand Canal, St. Patrick's Cathedral, pass under the Christ Church (and bridge), River Liffey, Trinity college and Temple bar :)

My family had a lovely stay in Dublin at this apartment. It was in a great location with a view of St. Patrick’s Cathedral Park and a short 10 minute walk to the Temple Bar area. The apartment was clean and decorated nicely. Perfect for our group of 3. Would definitely recommend.
Alexis provided great communication and made sure we were greeted by her cleaner upon arrival. The apartment was perfectly located and made visiting all the sights in Dublin quick and easy.
The host canceled this reservation 23 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
This apartment is in a fantastic location, within a five-minute walk of the Temple Bar area, but with no bar/music/people noise at night. There is car traffic noise, but that didn't bother us. We had a confusing check-in process, because the phone number on the airbnb listing is not the phone number of the person who was meeting us at the apartment. He was not waiting IN the apartment, so we stood on the street for 45 minutes, ringing the doorbell and with no one answering the phone number that we had, unable to get onto the internet. Supposedly this information was provided in a welcome email from when I booked the apartment several months ago, but I can't find that email. It did get sorted out in the end, though. My one other complaint is that there are flimsy curtains in the windows. The sun didn't set until nearly 11 pm, and it was so bright that my 5 year old could not fall asleep (and neither could we).
Very Nice apartment! Loved the location. It was a little noisy due to being located on a busy street. We enjoyed our stay very much.
Good location. Flat needs attention. As mentioned before mould all over bathroom ceiling and pictures thick with dust. Noisy road for fast traffic all night. Convinced windows open but they weren't. Not great for the 'zen'. Host was very pleasant so it's a shame. Spend some of the cleaning money on cleaning and a bathroom refurb.
Hi Alexis, you have a lovely place and the location was perfect. Thrilled we could get in a few hours earlier. I would definitely recommend to friends. This was my first experience with AirBnB and it was ver positive. Really appreciated all of your suggestions and the manual was very helpful. Your toiletries were much appreciated. It was so easy setting everything up and you were a joy to work with!

About the Host, Alexis
;) I am out-doorsy nature lover that loves traveling and meeting people! Also I love trying new things! So far, I have studied and worked in 8 different countries around the world. (not counting the good number of places I have visited and travelled -- so far 247 cities in 40 countries!! I know it's a lot!!)
I love trying different things and learning new things. I have studied computer science, energy market, technology policy, data science and worked for many international organizations - a game company in Korea, environmental consulting firm in Paris, a startup in Boston and Faecbook here in Dublin. I used to be a secretary for a congressman in Korea making regulations and writing for his speeches, and I was selling some ramen pots to K-pop (Korean pop) fans in Indonesia, US and Ireland.
I brought lots of art pieces from Bali and Thailand to Dublin and had two Indonesian art exhibitions in Dublin since arriving! Some of these art pieces you can find in my airbnb flats! :)
With Facbook (I can't type the proper name because of airbnb's website hiding policy but i mean the evil awesome, social media company), which is my latest magic place, I created and led a project to understand permanent account deletion users through their demographic data and behavior data, which was fascinating!! :D
Briefly introducing my outdoorsy life, I am semi-professional scuba diver; have dove more than 300 times in quite diverse places including Atlantic sea, Red sea, Florida, Indonesia, Thai, Malaysia, Mediterranean and Korea! I personally love Bali SO MUCH and lived in Bali for half year, collecting interesting paintings, meeting Balinese artists to help them build their own webpages to sell their art works, and swimming, diving and surfing! And in addition to scuba diving, I do horse back riding, wind surfing, running, bit of surfing and cycling. (I did cycling a lot in infamous winery region in France such as Bordeaux and Burgundy. ;-) Ping me if you are interested in half drunk cycling in gorgeous French winery towns!
Now I live in Seoul, South Korea and Dublin, Ireland half & half, so ping me when you are coming to one of these places! :-) I love meeting people and hopefully I can meet interesting and lovely people through Airbnb while I am in the same place as you! :)
Life is amazing! Looking forward to meeting you :D
