The space

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.

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 including a Nespresso coffee machine.

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.

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!

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.


Notes:
-The sofa bed in the pictures is 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.
-The Bed is King Size (150 x 200cm) and has a memory foam mattress
Nespresso Lattissimma Plus Machine provided

Interaction with guests

I will likely meet you on your arrival at either the apartment or the airport bus drop off point. If I'm away I will leave arrangements in place for either a friend or the housekeeper to meet you.
I am available 24/7 for urgent things and all 'reasonable' hours for any questions you might have through email, sms, call or (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN). I will be happy to give you tips about places to see, restaurants, etc when I meet you or at any stage during your stay.

Other things to note

Please also consider that this apartment is right in the very heart of Dublin City. There are lots of positives to this but you have to expect that such a central location won't be exactly tranquil - there'll be the usual 'sounds of the city', especially with the windows open, and there's nothing anyone can do about it, I'm afraid! If this is likely to be an issue for you, let's talk about it before you book.
**From February 2016 all 5 windows have been removed and replaced with double glazed, noise cancelling windows which have greatly improved insulation**

To do list:
-empty bins
-don't worry about bed linen, etc. Just leave it on the bed

Check in is 2 pm and check out 10am but I do my best to allow check in and check out to match your flights depending if somebody is staying the night before or arriving that date and even in those cases I try to get the apartment ready as early as possible and to let you check out as late as possible.

-2 people: I normally leave only the king size bed in the bedroom prepared.
-3 or 4 people: the sofa can be converted into a double bed and bed linen will be provided.

Wow wow wow this was the first stay in our 12 day adventure around all of Ireland. Staying at Dardo's started the standards so high for the rest of our trip. Myself and my two girlfriends stayed here for two nights and it was incredible. One slept on the pull out couch and she loved it for her back. My sister and I shared the bed but it was huge and was no problem at all. We walked everywhere. Legit every thing is walking distance within 10-20 minutes. His cleaning lady let us in and she was so friendly and nice. It was the little things like having butter and milk already in the fridge, q-tips, toothpaste and other extra and just random items were so helpful. His book shelf is incredible and the comfort of the bed and pillows are indescribable. We could stay inside and still feel like we were apart of everything as all the windows completely open up. LOVED it. Couldn't give a higher recommendation. If you are looking for something with an incredible view and right in the city, you will not regret staying here. Thanks Dardo!

Beautiful, clean apartment, prime position, great views of the Ha'penny Bridge and river. WiFi, milk in the fridge and delicious soda bread left for our breakfast. Dardo recommended The Yarn, pizza and cocktail place round the corner which was fantastic. 100% would recommend.

Dardo was an exceptionally easy host to communicate with. His apartment, its cleanliness, location and guidebook were all huge positives during our stay in Dublin. The location could not be better for walking around the city. And, if feeling lazy, you are very close to markets, restaurants, shops and bars (literally all around you). As a light sleeper, I was a little concerned about the central location. However, the noise-blocking windows made sleeping easy. You will pay 3 times as much for a hotel room with less space and charm.

Dardo's flat is amazing! My friends and I made a last minute decision to visit Dublin, and luckily were able to stay in this beautiful air bnb. It's exactly as pictured, and Dardo is an incredible host - he even greeted us at the bus station to give us the keys. Thanks again!
