When you stay with Alison, you don't ever want to leave, not Smithfield and not Dublin.
Her flat is stunning and is centrally located in the city's hot spot. Lighthouse Cinema is directly downstairs and I was fortunate to catch the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival.
She's also a few minutes away from the Liffey River, which enables easy navigation if it's your first visit to Dublin.
Additionally, Alison enures that her guests feel comfortable. She has that unique personality that makes you feel welcome - in her home and in Emerald City - all the while respecting your privacy.
No need to look anywhere else. Stay with Alison and submerge yourself in the local culture. You will thank yourself later.
I spent six days at Alison's and I had a really good time there. She was very friendly and helpful from the beginning since not only let me come and go as I peleased but also told me about all the best places to visit in Dublín and outskirts.
The apartament is gorgeous and its location is perfect! You are 20 minutes away from Temple Bar, 2 minutes away from Lúas and buses and also there are bars, restaurants and a cinema downstairs.
If you want to visit Dublín castle, Gaol, Guinness and Jameson they are just some minutes away from there.
Had a great time in Dublin thanks to Alison. Her flat is amazing, with a remarkable view and well located. See for yourself!
I loved my stay at Alison's. She was a great host, very friendly and helpful. The space is lovely - the views are amazing and the location is great. The apartment is right on a very quiet square, but does have a great Irish music pub and two nice restaurants/coffee bars right downstairs. Steps to the tram and walking distance to a lot of the sites one would wish to see. I didn't even buy a transport pass while I was there, as I just walked most of the time. I rented her smaller room, and it is very much a single, just a bed and dresser, but it was totally fine assuming you don't want to spend time in your room. The main space is quite airy and livable. I would definitely stay here again.
alison est très serviable et d'une nature optimiste et enjouée ;L'appartement donne une impression de luxe avec ses baies vitrées immenses, situé au cœur de dublin
This was my first time using Airbnb. Alison was a very delightful and helpful host. Her apt was beautiful. The location could not have been more perfect. I can't wait to go back.
Allisons place is perfect in terms of location, accessibility and comfort. The apartment is better than the pictures convey. getting around is easy- Temple Bar is a 15 min walk down the River Liffey. The apartment sits in a highly secure compound bang opposite the famous Jamieson Distillery in Smithfield which is now becoming the new address in town. There is an AIRLINK ( Aiport Shuttle Bus Express ) stop on the main road by the river ( 1.5 minutes from the apartment) - Stop is ARRAN QUAY-SMITHFIELD which gets you to and from the airport for 6 Euros per adult single trip. I would walk back every night around midnight and never once felt unsafe as a single female. The room has a stunning view of all of Dublin and since you have access to the entire apartment- gives you a wonderful sense of being home. Alison is charming and a warm and gracious hostess...would love to come back and stay with her. The only drawback is the noisy teenagers ( who live in the Generator Hostel across the street) screaming down the street in the middle of the night which might disrupt your sleep if you were jetlagged like me...but once you close the window...its as good as blocked out. I would definitely recommend staying here...
Hi Andrita, Gld you enjoyed your stay and thank your for your review. Yes was a big Irish Rugby weekend - so a lot of exuberance from the tourists and sport fans staying in the Hostel on the opposite side of the square- this is unusual and I am very glad that the window being closed blocked it completely...thats triple glazing for you ;)
It was my very first time with Airbnb, and my first time in Dublin. I can say that I am completely satisfied and enthusiastic with this choice!
Alison is a very nice person who will make you feel at home or, even better, live a very comfortable experience in Dublin! Not only did she welcome us in a perfect way, she was very helpful, even in booking a taxi for the early morning departure, and she recommended us on what to visit. If you happen to have a chat with her, you can have a contact with the Irish culture and history – something not easy to ‘breath’ in a short visit to this town.
The apartment, as said, it is AMAZING! It would be worthy to spend all time staring at the amazing skyline from the wide windows of the bedrooms or even from the cozy livingroom.
Anything you can desire or expect from the perfect place to stay in Dublin, it is in Alison’s apartment. It is a added value to a pleasant visit to Dublin.
I will strongly recommend you this choice.
Thank you Alison!
My friend Carissa and I loved our stay in Alison’s home while in Dublin. It was in a great location and within walking distance to the city center. We were able to get around Dublin very easily from where we were, including catching the Airlink to the airport. There was also a nice Italian restaurant, cinema, a nice café (recommended by Alison), and not to mention the Old Jameson Distillery steps away.
Alison was a fantastic host. She shared a lot of her knowledge with us and we really appreciate her hospitality. Her home is beautiful and the room was great and had amazing views. There was plenty of space for the both of us and everything was really clean and tidy. She even had towels for us, a hair dryer, and styling hair straightener for us to use. It was nice having a TV in the room (including DVD player & DVDs) to relax a bit after a day full of activities. She also allowed us to use her kitchen, which was really nice after traveling for so long. We had a lot of fun and enjoyed our time there. If you stay with Alison, you’ll not only be staying in a lovely place, but with a great person!
