Interaction with Guests
I usually meet with guests, if I am at work I will arrange for someone familiar with the apartment and Dublin to meet with you. I am contactable by Airbnb message, phone, email or text. I very much enjoy interacting with guests. Where there is a problem with the listing, I am a firm believer that 'quickest shared, soonest mended.'
It is in the heart of the city centre. You can walk anywhere you want to be in a matter of minutes. I love the location, and the atmosphere in the heart of old Dublin. There are lots of great pubs, restaurants and cafes, Francis St (the antiques district), St Patrick's Cathedral and park (love to hear the bells). It is very safe.
You will not need public transport in the city centre. If you wish to go further afield, bus, train and tram are nearby. You can jog/walk/run/bike along the canal or in the Phoenix Park.
Other Things to Note
The heating is updated to a German efficient system. It works on a thermostat - there is no need to leave it on 24 hours, the apartment will heat up very quickly.
The apartment is no smoking. It is of course possible to smoke on the balcony.
Free on street parking available with notice!
Check in after 14.00. Enquire if you want to check in early, it may be possible.
Check out by 12 noon.
And most importantly: Have a great time!
NB If there is anything wrong or you need any information on the apartment or Dublin please call or text me on (phone number hidden).
Again: Have a great time!
Kitchen. Fully equipped with fridge freezer, oven, microwave, dishwasher, hob and washing machine.
Daragh's communication was excellent and we met at the agreed time. He was most generous with his time, showing us the apartment and giving us great recommendations of places and things to do in Dublin. The apartment was perfect; clean, tidy and spacious for a couple. The apartment is in a fantastic location with Dame and Grafton St about 5-10 minutes walk. Ken and I loved our stay here. Thanks Daragh for everything and no, I didn't see Glenn Hansard, :(
We didn't get to meet Daragh - we were shown in by his friend Edgar - but he still proved an attentive and welcoming host, communicating by text to recommend places to visit etc. The apartment itself had everything we needed to cook, rest and relax, and we found it surprisingly quiet given its location on a busy main road. The location also has its obvious advantages: it's a few minutes' walk from Temple Bar, Grafton Street, Trinity College and the museums. The balcony is also a big plus, providing great people-watching with your breakfast!
We found the bed really comfortable too - not too soft.
Highly recommended for a couple.
Daragh was awesome! She made sure we knew what was going on in town (it was a bank holiday weekend) and made sure we had parking. The experience was fantastic!
Nice clean flat south of the river. Convenient to bus lines and walking distance to Christchurch, Temple Bar, and Trinity College.
The apartment was great! Good location, easy to get around. Daragh was very helpful in pointing out places of interest! We do wish there had been a dryer, but all in all we had a great time!
Daragh was super accommodating. In addition to having a contemporary apartment with lots of space, he was a wealth of information. He greeted us with Champagne, then told us the "must dines and sees" in Dublin. He put us at ease, and without his information our trip would have been less impressive. Very clean apartment. We were able to enjoy the balcony, and watch city life go by. Great central location and walking distance to city center, and other attractions around Dublin. The walk to the train station was 20 minutes, and a cab to the airport was $20EU. I wish our stay in Dublin was longer, but Daragh, helped us plan our time accordingly.
The apartment was just as expected. Great location close to everything but off the main streets so you could get a way from the fast past tourists as well. Daragh was an amazing host and gave up so may ideas of places to visit, restaurant the entire family would enjoy and the best local pub for a pint at the end of the day! Next time we visit Dublin (since our 70 hour visit simply wasn't enough) we will definitely try to stay here again!
