About this listing

Bright and spacious family friendly apartment in one of Dublin's best neighbourhoods with restaurants, pubs, the Bord Gais Energy theatre, food markets and kids playground all just on the doorstep.

The space

Gorgeous 2 bedroom apartment (1x super king and a trundle bed with 2x single beds ) in the heart of Dublin 4. We have a big, bright sitting room with loads of lounging space, wifi and flat screen tv/dvd/netflix, fully stocked kitchen (with washer/dryer and dishwasher) and large balcony. There's even a piano, cuz hey - why not?! There's a shop right across the street, DART station and multiple bus stops 1 minute up the road and we are 15 mins stroll to both Trinity/Grafton Street and Herbert Park (depending which way you turn). 5 mins from Lansdowne Road and the Aviva Stadium.

This is a great neighbourhood with loads of restaurant options (Junior's, Paulie's, The Chop House) and pubs (The Old Spot, Slattery's, The Bath, Beggar's Bush) right around the corner. We're also in a totally child friendly location with a local playground just up the street as well as a lovely courtyard and roof deck to keep the kids entertained in the immediate vicinity (as well as toys and books galore in-house).

We love living here and know you'll enjoy your stay! We'll be happy to help in any way we can to advise on local spots or using our pad as a base for exploring further afield.

There's a great roof deck area which everyone has access to.

Fun and vibrant neighbourhood with loads of great restaurants and pubs. There is public transport within 2 mins (both train and bus) and are also only a 15-20 min walk from Trinity College (and all of central Dublin). Kids playground just around the corner (2 mins), as well as a supermarket and cafe on our street - both about 30 seconds away.

2 minutes from major bus routes (all going to town) and 1 minute from the DART (train). There are Dublin Bikes on the street as well, and if you'd like to walk we're only 15 minutes from Trinity College in one direction and Herbert Park in the other.

House Rules
No smoking
Not suitable for pets
No parties or events

Common-sense rules apply - have fun, but please respect our wonderful neighbours! This is a family home, so enjoy yourselves, but please no visitors to stay that have not booked in through AirBnb (this would compromise our security and privacy). Our complex has a "no audible noise outside the apartment" stance of 10pm weekdays and 11pm weekends. This is a non-smoking apartment, but you are welcome to sit out on our balcony and smoke once you properly dispose of cigarette butts (e.g. don't throw them off the balcony!) We kindly ask that you tidy up after yourself during and at the end of your stay and remove garbage to the basement before you leave (take the elevator down one floor, the bins are across straight across the car park, left and left again - code to get back in is the same as the front door without the zeros). Thank you!

Vanessa's home was exactly as described! We had a lovely long weekend in Dublin and were able to see the sights and also relax in this beautiful home! It also helped that we got every day sunny and bright! Catherine was our local contact and she met us at the gate and showed us around after arrived. We really enjoyed Vanessa's home!

The apartment was clean, spacious and colorfull! We had a great stay. The supermarket is across from the street and open on Sundays as well. The wifi was great, showers were warm and the city center is only 15 minutes walking away

Vanessa is amazing and the apartment was ideal for our four days in Dublin! The location was great, with lots of good pubs and restaurants nearby and a grocery across the street. The walk in to the city center was an easy and enjoyable 15 minutes and we enjoyed everything about our stay! Vanessa is an ideal host and she opened her home to us in the most accommodating ways. She provided heaps of good tips and even had a little guide prepared for us to make our stay easier! Vanessa and her apartment have my highest recommendation!

Vanessa is easily the nicest person I've never met. She was incredibly prompt, kind and thoughtful in all our dealings. Our plans changed abruptly during our stay and she was really great about it. If you are ever in our neck of the woods we would gladly welcome you as guests! all the best, Denise, Freddy & Arabella

Great location. really 3 minutes walk from the Dart station and 15 mn walk to Merrion Square. A very nice terrace on the top floor. Vanessa left plenty of indications so I could find my way around. and she was very good at communicationg. There is a very good supermarket very close.I was a bit disappointed at first when I realized I was on the ground floor because I was worried it would be too noisy but it wasn't. In Ireland the rubbish lorry comes just once a week so it didn't prevent us from sleeping. Everything works fine so I would recommend this flat.

Vanessa was a wonderful host- prompt and clear communication from the very beginning and throughout our stay, very accommodating, and most importantly great place to stay! Place was well-located in a quiet area but within walking distance to city center / tourist attractions and bus stops, and Vanessa provided a great guide and map to area amenities and favorite restaurants, which we took great advantage of. Place was clean, comfortable, and the perfect oasis while on a combination work and vacation trip! I would highly recommend staying here.
