The apartment overlooks the HALF PENNY BRIDGE, a beautiful old Georgian pedestrian bridge dating to the 18th century. It arches over the River Liffey which divides the city into its northern and southern halves.

  • We loved our stay in Dublin and this beautifully appointed apartment felt like home as soon as Giuseppe's friend Patrick welcomed us. The only thing you need to be aware of if staying in this vibrant central location overlooking the Ha'penny Bridge is that it's very noisy, especially on Friday and Saturday nights. Revellers aplenty are out and about till the wee small hours. We overcame this by using earplugs and I always sleep with eye pads anyway.
    Otherwise, what a wonderful time we had in Dublin. The central location meant excellent walking distances to key sites or if a bit older like us, you might prefer the Hop on, hop off. Overall excellent!! Many thanks. Maggie and David

  • Great location in the heart of Dublin. Doesn't get much better than this, you really can walk everywhere. Right at the Ha'penny bridge and just a short walk into Temple Bar. Nice apartment, Giuseppe was very easy to contact and prompt with replies.

  • Good

    March 2014
  • The location is so so great! We bought a 5 day bus ticket and only used it when we went on a trip to Howth cause you can walk to all the sights. The flat looks exactly as shown on the pictures. We were 4 girls and we had enough space to sleep and the beds were comfortable :) I can totally recommand the flat to everyone!

    March 2014
  • The appartement is very nice, and it has a very good localisation, it is cleaning, perfect to discover Dublin!

    February 2014
  • It was really a nice apt, very clean, and exactly as seen on the pictures. It was a really nice stay

    January 2014
  • Great flat in a perfect location. We had a great time there and Giuseppe was very helpful (and patient with my many questions)

    January 2014
  • The apartment was very convenient for us to explore Dublin Centre on foot! We were a group of four and we fit comfortably in the apartment. It was very clean and had all the promised amenities. My brother and I slept on the sofa beds and they were nice enough, we had no problems. The high point of the apartment, though, has to be the location. I can't emphasize enough how greatly convenient the location was. We had a great time!

    December 2013
  • The apartment was in the city center and a close walk to all of the main things in Dublin! Giuseppe was very clear in his instructions and was very quick to respond our messages. I highly recommend this place!

    December 2013
  • Giuseppe's apartment was exactly what we were looking for. It comfortably slept 4, the amenities were nice, and the location could not be beat - a direct window view of Ha'penny bridge, and just a hop and a skip to everything you'd want to access. Public transportation was such a breeze, but the central location of this apartment could not be beat.

    Patrick let us into the apartment and was extremely helpful in pointing out the more unique features of an Irish apartment, and gave us some great recommendations of places to eat/see.

    Only complaint, which is no fault of the apartment, is we only had one key, and between four adults with very limited mobile communication, it was sometimes difficult to coordinate our differing interests/schedules so that everyone could access the apartment when they needed. We made it work though!
