Interaction with Guests
I interact with my guests as much as possible! I don't reside in the listing but I do see my guests as much as I can, especially as my office is located out back in our car park.
The neighbourhood is vibrant, full of tourists, and is located just over the Ha'Penny Bridge and around the corner on Middle Abbey Street. There are pubs on every corner, restaurants everywhere and the pedestrian-only shopping district is only 100 m away.
The main bus corridor on O'Connell St is only 200 m away and the tram line is literally on the doorstep of the apartment building. There is no need to even take public transport since everything is within a 20 minute walk! We also offer parking in our car park behind our main building at a cost of €15 per night.
Other Things to Note
Check-in is from 3-5:30 pm. If your arrival time is outside of these hours then you *must* inform us so that we can make alternative arrangements for collection of the keys.
Please give us your approximate arrival time so that we can know when to expect you. It always helps to know when we guests are coming!
When you arrive, please come to our main building at number 50 Middle Abbey Street for check-in. We are located directly opposite the main entrance to Arnotts department store, just look for the light green house with the orange door.
Ring the bell when you arrive; if I don't answer within a minute or two, just go next door to The Abbey Hotel and ask them to ring me.
There is no smoking allowed in our apartments as it is illegal in Ireland. If a smell of smoke is detected upon check-out then you will lose your deposit.
Wonderful location, clean, comfortable.
I do wish the check-in was a little earlier - however, Nancy was nice enough to let us leave our bags at the apartment.
Spacious enough for my boyfriend and i.
Everything was wonderful an exactly how Nancy said it would be - the keys were there, we were uninterrupted, great location, laundry facilities, etc.
Communication with Nancy was excellent and her space is all one needs in Dublin -- and what a location! This worked well for me and I am sure it will for any tourist experience. The bed is super comfortable. Nancy was able to arrange a taxi to show up at exactly the time specified. Very handy--much appreciated....
Nice apartment very close to most of the sites in Dublin. Nancy was an excellent resource and delightful. I would be happy to return next time in Dublin.
We had a great time at this very conveniently located apartment. Nancy & Kevin were both great, although we were so busy we didn't see them as much as we'd have liked. We dropped our bags off early & Nancy then prepped the room for an early check-in. Fantastic! I highly recommend this apartment when visiting Dublin. Everything was exactly as described, and very clean.
Everything was great, check in was very easy and the place was very easy to find. The apartment was very clean and nice. Very easy walk do the temple bar neighborhood and all of the shopping surrounding. Would recommend staying there again.
Very good service! Very warm welcome on arrival to the apartment from the host (and friendly dog) and a speedy response on the emails beforehand (from Nancy). However the booking didn't appear to be in the book beforehand which made me slightly nervous before we were confirmed booked in (we did book with little notice though)
Fantastic location bang in the centre of Dublin by Temple Bar.
Great spot for one or two nights and comfortable beds.
Thanks for making us feel welcome!

About the Host, Kevin
My name is Kevin Gilroy and I am the manager and owner of Dublin 1 Apartments. I with my new assistant Alicia wish a warm welcome to all of our guests. I am a fun-loving, easy going host who loves having guests come stay at my self-catering holiday apartments in the very heart of Dublin's city centre.
I have a great knowledge of the local area having spent all my life in Dublin and can easily direct you to the best places to eat, drink and be merry. The nightlife (i believe) in Dublin is lots of fun and simply cannot be missed! I often form a great relationship with my guests and have even been known to go out with them for a pint or two in the local pub The Gin Palace.
Come stay with us and see what all the fun is about!
