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.

-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**

I knew our stay at Dardo's place would be wonderful before we even got there based on his communication with us. He gave us great suggestions for transportation that ended up saving us time and money, and his restaurant/bar suggestions made us feel like locals. The apartment itself is beautiful and spacious with great views and people watching. It's located in a lively neighborhood {and we happened to be there when students were celebrating halloween :)} but the location is so worth it. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go in the city, including the Paddywagon bus tour to Northern Ireland which picked up just a few blocks away. We had great hospitality, and noticed Dardo left us fresh flowers, espresso, brown bread, and milk to make our stay a little more comfortable. There's also a great kebab place just a block north (Instanbel is the name I think) where we got excellent Chicken Balti two nights in a row--great post-pub food! Thank you Dardo!

Dardo’s apartment was dreamlike! The location was extremely beautiful and easy to get around. This was the first stay my husband and I had in Dublin, and we really appreciated being near Temple Bar, even though we didn’t go there much. It was just so central to everything; we walked everywhere. Dardo left helpful hints and tips, and thoughtful things like extra shampoo, conditioner and fresh flowers. We loved the flat and it was impressively space efficient, clean and modern. Made for great photos inside and with the views from all of the big windows! We would adore staying here again if we came back! A real treat!
