The apartment is perfectly situated for city exploring. Within 10 minutes, you can be on Grafton Street, Dublin’s premiere upmarket shopping street. The side streets branching off from Grafton street are full off Dublin’s best restaurant’s and pubs. Another 5 minutes and you’ll be in the heart of Temple Bar, Dublin’s vibrant mix of cultural institutions, the Saturday market, independent shops, cafes, restaurants, and pubs. At the bottom of Grafton Street, you’ll see the impressive Trinity College, where you can also visit the stunning long room library and Book of Kells. The apartment is so close to everything, you can pop home for lunch in between sight seeing.
There is also a Dublin communal bike station right around the corner from the apartment.
If you’re coming from the airport, you can take Dublin Bus 16 to South Great Georges Street, which is no more than a 5 minute walk from the apartment and will cost about €2.40. The other buses are much more expensive and don’t come as close to the apartment.
Interaction with Guests
I am only able to rent out the apartment when I am going out of Dublin. Sometimes I need to have a friend meet you at the apartment and give you the keys.
The best thing about the area is the beautiful St. Patrick's Cathedral and park right behind. All the best restaurants, cafe's, and bars are a few minutes walk away.
There is no smoking in the apartment, but feel free to smoke on the roof garden.
La comunicacion con Ria fue muy buena, contestaba generalmente casi al momento cuando le mandabas un correo, nos aporto hasta informacion turistica de la zona. El apartamento estaba genial, la calefaccion y agua caliente funcionaban a la perfeccion. Fuimos · personas y nos puso una cama sumpletoria de matrimonio, pero colchon que estaba muy bien.
La localizacion del apartamento era estupenda. Nos fuimos dando cuenta de esto realmente a medida que pasaban los dias y veiamos que todo lo teniamos cerca.
Die Lage des Apartment ist super. Zentral gelegen und man kann alles gut zu Fuss erreichen. Die Beschreibung des Apartments war sehr genau, so dass es keine offenen Fragen gab. Zudem hätte ich Ria jederzeit kontaktieren können. Die Wegbeschreibung war sehr genau und gut. Es gibt nichts zu beanstanden, ich kann es euch nur empfehlen.
Ria provided the perfect AirB&B experience for myself and my son. We arrived and she showed us all the tricks to the apartment. She set up a mattress for my son in the livingroom. The apartment was nicely decorated, clean, and comfortable.
The best part was the location! We walked everywhere from here! It was perfect for going to eat in the really cool neighborhood of Drury Street, Fade Street, and Exchequer Street.
And the St. Patrick's Cathedral park next door was a lovely bonus to chilling out in the afternoon and early evening. We loved watching the dogs and people!
Thanks to Ria for her flat. Really closed to the city center, it was the perfect location for a nice week end in Dublin. Ria has been a great host and I fully recommend her flat.
Everything was perfect. The apartment is very small but clean, well equipped and the location is great. You can walk to all the attractions and there is a bike station very close to the apartment in case you want to rent a bike. I never met Lia but she sent me all the instructions through internet and she was responsive. We were 4 people and 2 of us slept on a very good mattress in the living room. No complains at all. Highly recommended.
I traveled to Dublin with one other person to visit my cousin at UCD. The apartment was exactly as described. Everything was clean and ready to go. Ria put out another mattress in the living room which was very useful. The rooftop garden also has some fantastic views.
The location is awesome. The bus fares in Dublin can quickly add up so we ended up doing a lot of walking. This apartment is right in the middle of everything which ended up saving a bit of money. Temple bar is less than 10 min, Grafton street/St. Stephen's Green is 8 min, Guinness is 15 min. Seriously, great location.
Ria was really nice and helpful on the day we arrived. Our original check in time didn't work for us but she was able to move her schedule around to meet us a bit earlier.
All in all, 5 stars.
I spent a week in Ria's apartment along with my six-month-old baby and a friend while attending a conference at UCD. I found it to be a comfortable and convenient home away from home. I never met her, but Ria was very helpful in answering my questions before and during my stay, and understanding when I was a bit flaky about answering hers. The location is great, only a short walk from the city center and close to a number of bus routes which take you anywhere you want to go. The apartment faces out over a road which can get quite busy, but the traffic noise didn't bother us at all. The apartment itself is simple but well-equipped. I found the bed super comfortable, and there was plenty of room in the bedroom for my travel cot. Ria set up an extra mattress in the living room for my friend, so we both slept very comfortably. It was quite hot in the flat the week we were there but I imagine the type of heatwave we experienced is not common in Dublin. Ria gives you access to her Netflix account while you are there which was an extra bonus. There were a couple of things about the apartment which were different than the description I read at the time of booking: there was no television set up, and there were no guidebooks that we could find. Also upon arrival we couldn't find a house manual/instructions anywhere. Ria sent this to me as soon as I asked though. Overall we enjoyed our stay and I think Ria's place offers great value for money.
I'm Ria. I was born in Northern Ireland, but grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area. I studied abroad at Trinity in Dublin, Ireland and fell in love with the place. I'm now back living in Dublin and loving it once again.
I love to travel and recently spent 2 months in Australia producing two travel shows for Discovery. I am also an actress, aerial silk performer, and love a great mojito made from scratch!
