(2bed apt) OLD QUARTER / TEMPLE BAR

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Dame Street, Dublin, Dublin, Ireland

Fantastic, top-floor, two-bedroom apartment in a beautiful, old building in the very, very heart of Dublin City. You won't find better!

The Space

This is a top-floor, TWO-BEDROOM apartment in an Edwardian building in the very, very centre of the Dublin city's old historic centre.

It has truly stunning views across to Dublin Castle and City Hall. The building itself is on Dame Street in Dublin 2, and is just a couple of minutes (or less) walk from most of Dublin's main historic, cultural, social and tourist attractions.

THE APARTMENT:

The apartment is full of history and character. It occupies the top floor of an old Edwardian building, located midway along Dame Street, which links Trinity College to Christ Church Cathedral.

It has absolutely spectacular views over Dublin Castle and Dublin City Hall both from the living room and one bedroom, while the other bedroom looks west towards Christ Church Cathedral.

Although the apartment has been completely renovated in recent years (so has all the modern conveniences you could want, including fast WiFi internet connection, central heating, an electric shower and a fully-fitted kitchen), its original period features have been preserved (including solid oak wood flooring in the living room and bedrooms, granite stone flooring and a wonderful Belfast sink in the kitchen, and large sash windows in every room).

It has two bedrooms (one with a double bed, the other with two single beds, which can be combined if required), a decent-sized living room with a kitchen off and a bathroom.

Every room has large sash windows characteristic of the Edwardian era (early 1900s), so the apartment is full of natural light (if you're lucky, sunshine too!) from early in the morning until late in the evening.

Everything you might need (bed linen, towels and kitchen items) is provided, as well as a small library of books on Dublin. Free 30Mb Wifi.

THE IMMEDIATE AREA:

Have a glance at a map of Dublin and you'll see that Dame Street is right in the centre of everything that Dublin has to offer. Trinity College is at one end of Dame Street (3 minute walk from the apartment) and Christ Church Cathedral is at the other (2 minute walk in the other direction). On one side is Dublin Castle and City Hall, and on the other is Temple Bar.

All other notable parts of the city – such as Grafton Street area, St Stephens Green, Merrion Square, O'Connell Street – are within a 10-15 minute walk.

I'd be delighted to welcome you to Dublin, and would be more than happy to answer any questions you might have - just ask!

Ordinarily, the minimum booking is two nights for midweek bookings and three nights for weekend bookings (i.e. if the booking includes a Friday or Saturday night). However, I'll always try to facilitate one-night bookings whenever possible. Again, just ask!

  • A really fantastic apartment - with really fantastic hosts.

    Garrett and Ronan were very helpful, proactive and were on hand for the stupid moment I locked myself out on a Friday night! I couldn't have asked for more.

    Thanks guys!

  • The Flat was in a brilliant location, it was very clean and well stocked with lots of essentials. Its within walking to distance to everything we wanted to see, very quiet too, despite its central location. Garrett was a brilliant host, he sent us lots of information before we came, including very clear directions. He met us at the Flat on time, and was very accommodating with our request for late check out.

    I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Dublin - a really brilliant host and a lovely place to stay.

  • The apartment was a very nice two bedroom place, in a great location of center city Dublin. It was within walking distance of several local places of interest, including churches, the Guinness Storehouse (about a 15-20 minute walk), of course many great pubs and restaurants in the Temple Bar area, and even about 15 minutes from the Jameson Distillery (across the Liffey), if you are feeling adventurous. The accommodations were great, Garrett was very accessible and getting checked in was no problem, and checking out was as easy as leaving the keys on the table. My stay was very smooth, and my fellow travelers enjoyed it as well. I would definitely recommend a stay here if you are in the area, for the reasons I mentioned.

  • Great apt, hosts were incredibly friendly, and the location was perfect.

    Would highly recommend.

  • This was my first airbnb booking and stay. I couldn't have chosen a better location. Everything we wanted to see was in easy walking distance. The apartment was clean, bright and had a wonderful view of Dublin Castle and City Hall. All the amenities we needed were there. Garrett was a wonderful host. He answered all my questions and went the extra mile to share information on where to eat and places to see. All in all a wonderful experience.

  • Garrett thank you for their hospitality. His apartment, very well located in the center of Dublin, helped our tour of the city and its beautiful monuments. We had a very pleasant stay with family!

    A next time!

  • The apartment is perfectly located, very close to the city center and temple bar and next to the bus stop of Airlink 747, arriving from and departing to the Airport.
    The lovely apartment has two double bedrooms, a bath room with electric shower, a small living room and a kitchen equipped with coffee machine, water heater, cooking stove and washing machine - suits perfectly for four people.
    Garrett and his brother are very friendly, always willing to help and easy going. It was a real pleasure to stay here!

  • My boyfriend Sam and I stayed in Garrett & Ronan's great apartment for a week while visiting Dublin. The place was clean, cozy, and stocked with lots of necessities and basic supplies you might need. They also have a great mini library of books on Dublin. The street views from the apartment are spectacular, and it's a comfortable place to rest between trips around the city. It also has a great central location to most all of the major tourist spots in town. We were able to walk everywhere and there are great pubs and restaurants very close to the apartment - Queen of Tarts & the Toscana Italian Restaurant are both in the same building and were two of the best places we tried.

    Garrett & Ronan also gave us great suggestions to add to our Dublin list, and helped us feel right at home by going through the city map with us a bit which helped us get oriented much faster. One of the best tips they gave us was to take a DART train trip out of town to hike up Killiney Hill Park and to check out nearby Dalkey. It's a beautiful walk and was one of our favorite days of the trip.

    We'd highly recommend this as an excellent place to stay on your trip to Dublin.

  • great apartment right in the centre of Dublin in front of Dublin Castle and the City Hall, but still relatively quiet and very comfortable. Garrett was very friendly and helpful, making it a great stay in Dublin.

About
A 30-something Dubliner back living in Dublin after stints in New York, London and Mayo (in the West of Ireland). Sharing life with one big person and two little people. Fond of travelling but always happy to get back to Dublin (not a perfect city, but a pretty great city). Favourite foreign cities are New York, Barcelona, London, Seville (where my partner's from) and Copenhagen. Believe that everyone should experience Dublin at least 8 times in their life. The apartment I have listed is right in the very centre of Dublin City - it couldn't be any more central; the centre of the centre, if you like.
