Perfect opportunity for breakfast at the Liffey. Liam is a most welcoming host, with loads of suggestions on how to fully appreciate Dublin. Plus he lives across from Phoenix Park, great for a green start of the day. If you bring your credit card (I forgot mine), then River View is easily to be reached by one of the many free DublinBikes from the city centre. Otherwise a 30 minute walk, or a short trip by bus or taxi. In short, Liam's place offers a relaxed, quiet and welcoming base for exploring wonderful Dublin. Highly recommended, will gladly come back another time!
Liam was a wonderful host, very helpful in assisting us in every way. We found his home to be well situated with great access to the city and to Phoenix park. The added benefit of onsite parking made it a five star package. His home is well appointed, comfortable, and a safe district. We did not hesitate to walk back to the apartment from the Temple Bar area along the Liffy. We are likely to be visiting Dublin again and would not look past this accommodation.
Liam and his place are absolutely wonderful. He picked my mom and I up from the train station, which was very nice. His place is right on the river, which is a lovely view. We walked back from the city center to his place, which was perfect. Liam made sure that we knew where we were going and lended us a map. The room was very clean and comfortable.
Anna, it was a pleasure to meet you and your mom and many thanks for choosing to stay at my place and for your kind review. It's great to hear you enjoyed your stay and hopefully you will return to Dublin in the not too distant future. You are very welcome here anytime. All the best, Liam
From start to finish, Liam was a fantastic host. Myself and a friend booked the place for a weekend trip to Dublin, and the room itself as well as its location was perfectly suited to our needs. The apartment is close to several bus-lines and a tram to get into the center of the city, additionally if you're up for the walk, you can get their in ~40 minutes and pop in on several attractions on the way (including the beautiful Phoenix Park). True to other reviews, the bed in the room we rented was incredibly comfortable and the neighborhood, very quiet. Additionally Liam sat down with us upon our arrival and went over a map so that we could get our bearings with the neighborhood and Dublin, which I found to be incredibly helpful in the context of having a short trip where we wanted to maximize our time. Lastly, Liam laid out a lovely breakfast in the morning for us, which was certainly beyond my expectation. Overall, it was a great experience and Liam was a wonderful host.
Liam was very welcoming, he picked me up from the airport bus station and was also very hospitable during my stay, provided even breakfast and maps to get around. He also had good suggestions for logistics, places to see and restaurants. The room was bright and clean and calm at night. While it is indeed 5 minutes from the center by bus, in rush hours it could of course be more and you need to consider waiting time, which can be considerable at night and on Sundays. As a result, I ended up walking at times and Temple Bar pubs happen to be 40-45 minutes away on foot, but you get to walk along the river which is a nice experience.
Many thanks for your review Reka, it's great to hear that you enjoyed your stay at my place. Just to mention for other visitors that Dublin has a very efficient public transport system ranging from buses, trams, taxis to city bikes.
I also provide access to the Dublin Bus app for smartphones which gives real time timetables so there should never be a need to wait for a bus at anytime. Buses run all day long and also throughout the night so my place is easily reached from the city centre in 5 mins via special bus lanes and very cheaply, for the adventurous there's the option of hopping on a city bike. In addition taxi cabs at night are not expensive and are plentiful. Most people in their reviews refer to how accessible my home is. I think it's important to clarify this point for future guests. All the best, Liam.
At first I wondered if I was staying in the right part of the city. But the location was perfect in that it was close enough to walk anywhere and quiet enough to get a good sleep. Liams home is clean and the bed is comfortable. The pick-up at the train station and the breakfasts were a nice touch. Liam was helpful with any questions that I had but never intrusive. Not POSH but definitely a good value.
I had a pleasant stay at Liam’s apartment. He was very communicative throughout the booking process, and was really accommodating with information and answering my questions. He picked me up from the station when I arrived, which was much appreciated. The room is clean, comfortable, and has lovely view of the river. Apartment is very close to bus stop, bike rental, or is a nice leisurely walk from city center (20-30 min). Liam went out of his way to set up breakfast for me—considering I was up very early during my stay (pre-6am), this was great. Liam is a kind, truly welcoming host, and I would stay with him again.
