The space

We have called this apartment The James Joyce after the famous Irish novelist.

A recently refurbished apartment that sleeps 6 comfortably ideally situated close to the Phoenix Park and Botanic Gardens.

This apartment has been lovingly restored to a very high degree while retaining a lot of the original features to provide a classic and extremely luxurious stay.

The city centre is only a 10 minute bus ride away with and excellent bus service right outside the front door. For those that prefer to walk it's a 30 minute stroll.

This is a luxury apartment with all home comforts. Within easy reach of all the fabulous restaurants, museums, parks, Aras an Uachtarain, Farmleigh House and of course shopping that Dublin has to offer. Easy walk to numerous bus stops and train staions that will connect you with the Luas which will connect you with all of Dublin.
There are also a number of great restuarants and pubs within a 10 minute walk from the apartment which we can highly recommend.

We provide a welcome pack with the basics such as bread and milk etc to get you on your feet. There is a major supermarket within a 3 minute walk so you will never run out of essentials. All mod cons are provided and there is linen and towels freshly laundered for your use.

The apartment is in a beautiful large red brick Victorian building on a tree lined street. There is one bedroom with a double bed, a living room with a leather pull down sofa that makes another double bed. There is a separate kitchen and dining area and of course a bathroom. There is fridge freezer, microwave, dishwasher and washer dryer so that anyone considering an extended stay can enjoy all the comforts of home. Cots and high chairs can be provided should they be required.

For anyone considering exploring Ireland further there is a car hire company within easy reach and a train station 5 minutes walk away. The famous Guinness Brewery is close at hand as well as the Jameson Distillery both of which run tours regularly and are worth a visit.
Dublin is also renowned for it's famous Temple bar area for entertainment which is a bus ride away. For art lovers the Irish Museum of Modern Art is 15 minutes away and the National Museum of Ireland is 10 minutes away. We are located just 8 minutes walk from the beautiful Phoenix Park which is a wonderful place to stroll and maybe visit the Zoo. It also has a playground. Trinity College, Kilmainham Gaol, Ryan's Victorian Pub are some other of the many attractions that are available.

This house was in a great location and very comfortable. The decor was very pretty with everything in great working order. Liam and the house keeper Carmen were very kind, even allowing us to check in a little early when we arrived sooner than we planned. I would definitely recommend this stay to anyone else visiting Dublin.

Liam was a great host, communicating clearly and making sure we had all the information we needed. The apartment is spacious and provides everything you need. If you're traveling by car parking is also easy right outside.

We loved staying at Fiona and Liam's place. We were greeted by Fiona with a wealth of information about the city, and in particular things to do as a family. She also brought us fresh bread, fruit, butter, and milk. The bus stops were very convenient to the apartment and there was a full grocery store within a 5 min walk. Also, the communication between us and the host was great. They quickly responded to any questions we had. I would highly recommend staying here.

Liam's place was great. It is very close to public transportation and walking distance to shopping and dining. Our family of five was very comfortable in the flat. Liam was very easy to communicate with. We had a power outage in the area and Liam was very responsive to keep us up to date when the power would be restored.

This apartment is wonderful, very nice and comfortable even with a large group of 6 people. We were only a 30 minutes walk from central Dublin and the bus stop was right outside so it was easy to get to and from the city. Liam was always prompt about replying to any questions that we had and he arranged for a driver to get us to and from the airport which was so great for us.

Thanks for the great review Margaret. We are happy to arrange the transfer for any guest that requests it and it certainly saves time rather than using public transport. See you again soon hopefully. Liam

Le quartier est très éloigné du centre (35min à pieds) et sans charme. L'immeuble est très bruyant, nous étions au rez de chaussée et entendions du bruit et sentions les odeurs de cigarette jusqu'à tard dans la nuit (les gens discutent et fument dans le couloir). Pour ceux qui dorment dans la canapé-lit, vous aurez froid la nuit (les fenêtres sont mal isolées) et tres mal au dos le matin !! Points positifs : transfert depuis l'aéroport pour 35€ même tard le soir. Réactivité du propriétaire en cas de problème.

Salut Julien Nous espérons néanmoins que cela vous aidera dans vos recherches. Original en anglais Language Weaver Notez cette traduction: Merci pour votre évaluation Mauvaise Bonne Nous aimerions clarifier certaines des questions que vous avez abordées. Tout d'abord, nous sommes à environ 30 minutes à pied du centre-ville comme annoncé. Il ya de nombreux bus juste devant la maison qui vous emmènera à la ville en 10 minutes. Ceci est également détaillé dans notre description. C'est un quartier résidentiel à la périphérie du centre-ville. Nos clients trouver un endroit paisible et tranquille à la retraite à la fin d'une journée bien remplie de visites. Le canapé-lit est de bonne qualité mais ne doit pas être comparé à un lit standard. L'appartement dispose de son propre système de chauffage qui est réglementé pour répondre à la plupart des exigences des clients. Cependant, si la chaleur supplémentaire était nécessaire alors nous aurions pu expliquer la procédure pour allumer la chaleur pendant plus longtemps. Nous n'avons pas été informés que vous n'avez pas suffisamment chauffée pendant votre séjour. Les fenêtres sont à double vitrage et à l'épreuve des courants d'air. Nous espérons néanmoins que cela vous aidera dans vos recherches. Original en anglais Language Weaver Notez cette traduction: Merci pour votre évaluation Mauvaise Bonne Il s'agit d'un bâtiment strictement non-fumeurs et nous faisons tout en notre pouvoir pour faire respecter cela et nous attendons de nos clients à respecter cela. Nous aimerions rappeler aux futurs invités que nous sommes toujours disponibles par courriel pour nous aider de toutes les façons possibles et pour régler les problèmes qui pourraient se poser. Le confort de nos clients est toujours notre priorité absolue.

I grew up in the tourist business as my parents ran a hotel in Kildare so I have always wanted to get back into the hosptality industry. I have owned this house from the early '90's when I returned from New York where I had lived for a number of years. I have been in the buidling trade for the last 20 years so I thought I would combine the two and refurbish the house and provide rental accommodation in an extremely convenient locations to tourists.
