Fantastic Apartment in the heart of the city with river views. Refurbished by award winning A2 architects, this unique space offers modern, bright open plan accommodation with amazing views of the Ha'penny Bridge, one of Dublin most famous landmarks.

The Space

Recently renovated by award winning A2 Architects, my 2nd floor, open plan studio apartment offers the perfect location to stay in Dublin. Situated right beside the symbol of Dublin, the Ha’penny Bridge, you are in the beating heart of the city.

Everything is within walking distance, with Temple Bar and Trinity College for example just across the bridge and most other major sights a few minutes away . The airport bus is only 100 metres away, not to mention all the bars and restaurants just outside the door. Experiencing the true essence of Dublin couldn’t be any easier.

Previously a 66-metres (710 sq ft) two-bedroom apartment, it was renovated to an open plan, creating a large space that allows full access to natural light. From the window overlooking the river Liffey, you get a great view of the sunset and the feeling of the city passing you by. It’s deceptively easy to just sit at the window and watch as people cross the Ha’penny bridge. I have Wi-fi, a great bathroom and fully functioning kitchen.

Dublin is a conveniently compact city and my apartment is nestled right in the centre of it all, allowing for a hassle free, thoroughly enjoyable place to experience it to the full. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

NEW FROM OCTOBER 2013:
The sofa bed showing in the pictures has been replaced by a BoConcept Melo 6070 Double Sofa with reclining and sleeping function. Size as double bed is 173cm wide x 197cm long so suitable for one or two people.
*Sometimes it is possible to rent for less than 2 nights. Send enquiry with dates.
*If attending the Garth Brooks concert, possibility of renting for one night on 26th July or 29th July
*If your stay includes Friday or Saturday nights, usually minimum stay required is 3 nights

The Neighborhood

Location cannot be better. You are overlooking the River Liffey and directly above the beautiful Ha'penny Bridge. Cross the bridge and you are in Temple Bar with its numerous bars, restaurants, vintage clothes shops, Project Arts Centre, Gallery of Photography, Irish Film Institute and many other attractions.

Dublin two main pedestrian shopping streets, Grafton and Henry St are about 5 minutes away.
Trinity College with its famous Library is 3 minutes walk.

Dublin is experiencing a Renaissance after a long recession and every week a new exciting restaurant, cultural space or play is opening. It is a great time to be visiting!

Getting around

The Aircoach bus from the airport drops you 5 minutes away. The LUAS tram stops in Jervis St 2 minutes away but the apartment is so central you probably won't be using public transport at all.
I personally wouldn't recommend car hire as a lot of the streets are one way and it can be tricky to drive around if you are not familiar with the city.

  • Great apartment, nicely furnished in a very convenient location in Dublin. It is noisy, especially on weekends, (as clearly noted in the description so no surprise). Other than that, everything is wonderful. Dardo was also very helpful on arrival to make it a very enjoyable stay.

  • It was our first time using Airbnb and Dardo and his fantastic apartment were a great introduction. We can't fault her him on his friendly greeting and host information, after he meet us a walked us to his place.
    Great view, close to everything, modern, clean and easy to use kitchen.
    Traffic was noisey but we loved being in the thick of Dublin.
    Would happily recommend this designer apt for any single or couple to stay in.

  • Great place on a great spot: in the middle of "where it's happening" in Dublin.

  • I had not been to Dublin before so it was entirely new to me. I was looking for a location close to attractions, restaurants, entertainment, etc. I could not have found a better flat. The place is terrific and Dardo is a wonderful host. He made our stay effortless with recommendations for restaurants, entertainment, etc. I had a delightful stay.

  • Awesome place and perfect location. Easy access to everything we wanted to do. It was clean and well stocked. Dardo was very responsive, proactive, and polite. It was a wonderful experience. We used and liked his recommendations.

  • This apartment is in the best location possible to visit Dublin - the view is amazing and everything is within a few minutes. It had everything that you need for a stay and there was even fresh milk in the fridge to make tea. The apartment itself is even better than the pictures and the bed was incredibly comfortable. I will definitely rebook on my next visit!

  • This apartment is perfectly located in the city centre and had everything we needed. My husband and I were extremely happy to have a full kitchen and laundry in the apartment. We felt very comfortable and enjoyed people-watching from the five large windows in the apartment. We had great views of the River Liffy and Temple Bar. The apartment was very spacious for two over a 2 1/2 week period.

    Because the apartment is in the city centre, it can be very loud with the traffic and conversations into the wee hours of the night. No worries though. Dardo provides ear plugs for light sleepers.

    It was a wonderful vacation. Thanks Dardo (and Chris)!

  • Dardo met us at an airport bus drop-off right in downtown Dublin which was very convenient. He was super nice and energetic and walked us to the apartment and provided a overview of things to do in Dublin right away. Dardo even had a box of delicious chocolates as a house warming gift. The apartment was very nice, with tons of light, a great view of the river and Ha'Penny Bridge, and the bathroom was very large, modern and clean. Our expectations of the apartment were exceeded by the reality. All of the amenities were just as described. Being located right across from Temple Bar was super convenient with plenty of fun options within a short walk. We stayed for three nights which was not long enough, and we will look to stay at Dardo's wonderful apartment next time we are able to visit.

  • Dardo was a great host, incredibly helpful and attentive, responding very quickly to all our questions. He was particularly helpful in advising me around the Airbnb registration process...which was much appreciated. My Godaughter and her fiance loved the apartment and all the logistical arrangements went smoothly. The location was ideal, for visiting all that Dublin has to offer. Although noisy at night, the ear plugs that were provided were a welcome relief from the hustle and bustle of this lively city. The apartment had everything they needed, as well as being comfortable warm and stylish. The coffee machine...was excellent and much appreciated. Thankyou Dardo for all your help, advise and (email hidden) was a trip I'm sure they'll remember for a very long time! Joan
