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.

Again: Have a great time!
Kitchen. Fully equipped with fridge freezer, oven, microwave, dishwasher, hob and washing machine.
My husband and I loved our time in Dublin City Centre. We didn't spend a lot of time in Daragh's apartment because we were constantly on the go, seeing the sights. The place was cozy; a little dirty but as is city life. Daragh provided parking passes for each day which was hugely helpful. My husband and I kept the car parked and walked, taxied, bussed everywhere. Our favorite feature of the apartment was the balcony. We ate breakfast on the balcony each morning and watched passing traffic with a gorgeous St. Patrick's Cathedral and Park backdrop. We highly recommend eating at the cafe, Slice of Life, across the street.
Daragh has a very well located apartment in the heart of Dublin City Center. We absolutely loved hearing the church bells from St. Patrick's Cathedral every day. And the sound of the horse drawn carriages trotting by was so delightful. The flat had everything we needed, the bed was SUPER comfortable, and Daragh was very attentive when any need arose. Incredibly convenient, accessible, and comfortable to stay in, Daragh's City Center Apartment is a great place to be in the center of it all. It was perfect and Daragh was a wonderful host!! Thank you again, Daragh!
Daragh communicated extremely well from the very beginning. This was our first international airbnb experience and couldn't have been happier. We were nervous about our early arrival into Dublin airport and managing the time difference but Daragh was very flexible and understanding in letting us get in as early as possible. The location of the apartment is spectacular. We walked everywhere we wanted to go during our short stay in Dublin. Could recommend this higher!
Daragh had lots of great suggestions for restaurants and bars nearby. We especially loved The Long Hall (beautiful old bar) and The Fumbally (cool cafe for coffee, breakfast, lunch). The apartment is also in a great location with easy access to pretty much anywhere in Dublin.
Perfect launching pad for exploring Dublin. We enjoyed the full kitchen and new bathroom. A great choice!
Daragh and Edgar were attentive hosts, with great recommendations for restaurants and activities in the area. The apartment is in a wonderful location, and well equipped with maps and guidebooks to enhance your stay.
