We had a wonderful experience staying here. The flat is lovely, and in a really handy central location. Daragh was a great host, and gave us some really excellent tips about what to do and see in Dublin. We would absolutely stay here next time - couldn't recommend it highly enough!
Daragh's Perfect City Centre Apartment was perfect! The inside of the apartment is great and the location is even better than we could have imagined. We had a great time walking the city and stopping in for some rest!
Perfect? Not quite. Pretty damn fine? Absolutley! The place has all required amenities, and some thoughtful extras, with a lived-in feel that suited us very nicely. And Daragh is a gem. His flexibility, enthusiasm, and knowledge of Dublin (especially eateries) were appreciated. The apartment's location is ideal - just far enough from the centre of town to avoid much of the noise, but close enough to walk everywhere. The outlook over the beautiful St Patrick's Park gives a feeling of space and freedom not always easy to find in an inner-city apartment.
Daragh and his Dad were great hosts, very welcoming and have lots of local knowledge. All arrangements were easy . The apartment is light and nicely decorated. It's positioned really well with easy walking access to all Dublins delights. Highly recommended.
My wife and I stayed from Jan 10 thru Jan 13 or 2014. From before we arrived and throughout our trip, the assistance and support given us by Daragh and Mick was outstanding. Tips on traveling to/from the airport, where to dine, and what tours to take helped us navigate our first trip to Dublin. They were like a concierge service even though they both work full time elsewhere. The apartment itself is small by American standards but was just what we needed as a comfortable, convenient, and safe place to hang our hat at night. We mostly walked around the city to the sites, and the pubs, and everything was within 5-15 minute walk. Our favorite two pubs were Brazen Head, the oldest in Ireland - about a 10 minute walk north, and the Blue Light, a more rural pub a 15-20 min ride out of the city. We mostly ate out but did use the kitchen to make morning coffee and to store some leftovers, however there are full facilities for cooking. When compared to a local hotel option, Daragh's place was larger, less expensive, better equipped, and just as well located as anything I saw in the city. The only stress I ever had was getting the key to open the front door after a few pints (it was tricky :)). We would not hesitate to stay again.
Wonderful location, close to airlink transporation, walking distance to Guinness, Temple Bar, Trinity areas. Very comfortable and would like to thank both Daragh and Miguel for their patience with our flat tire and bad weather getting into Dublin. And the fact that our cells did not work there! Would definitely recommend.
We had a wonderful stay in Dublin. Daragh's flat was perfect. Just like he wrote in the description.
He gave us a map of Dublin with a lot of nice places to visit around town. Our reccomendation for Daragh and all People that are travelling to Dublin is to Visit the cementary of glasnevin and the botanical garden next to it- really impressive!
Also we recommend everybody to check out the cliff walk, starting at bay to greystones.
If we ever come back to Dublin we would stay at Daraghs flat again, next time maybe including a Pint all together at the Fallon Pub.

My husband and I stayed at Daragh's apartment over Christmas this year. The apartment was very conveniently located and was a great base for exploring the city. Daragh was very friendly and helpful and took the time to give us recommendations of things to do and see in Dublin based on our interests. The city shuts down on Christmas day, and so it was really nice to be able to cook in the well-equipped kitchen. Thanks, Daragh, for the nice stay!
Excellent location and Daragh was a tremendously welcoming host, offering lots of restaurant tips and also staying in close contact via email. Yes, the bathroom is in need of a remodel, but otherwise we were very satisfied with the experience and would recommend it to others.
Daragh is a friendly and personable host who was very helpful in ensuring we enjoyed every minute of our staying in Dublin. The place was clean and a comfortable size in a good location. Street noise at night did take a few sleeps to get use to but otherwise an excellent apartment for a first time visit to Dublin!
