This is a private, self-contained apartment. The main front door is shared with the other apartments in the building.

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 just 75 m away from the apartment behind our main building.

The neighborhood

The neighbourhood is vibrant, full of tourists, and is located just over the Ha'Penny Bridge. There are pubs on every corner, restaurants everywhere and the pedestrian-only shopping district is only 100 m away.

Getting around

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.

Kevin's place was very convenient to the spots on Temple Bar. Clean & comfortable after a long flight. He even fetched us off the street when we couldn't find the apartment and carried our bags!!! Thanks Kevin!!

Great location, centrally located. Very noisy all night long. Bathroom is a gut job, flooring coming up and smelled of mold. Bedroom ok. Poor communication on parking situation. Office located on busy street with tram line. Kinda left high and dry looking on my own. Unless you are familiar with the area look else where.

Response from Kevin:
HI Christopher, i am sorry you did not like the apartment. There is a concrete floor throughout the apartment so i do not understand what you mean by flooing coming up in bathroom. We do have a second window in the bedroom to negate the noise from outside, this in general sorts out the noise problem from the street, perhaps you did not have the second window closed over? We have professional cleaners in after each guest leaves so i am a little concerned that the bathroom smelled of mould, i did check it out and found no mould. The office is located approx 300 mts from the apartment. I do not understand that you were left high and dry, when guests arrive we bring them to their designated apartment, which we did with you. Do you have any recommendations that perhaps there is more we could do when you arrive? Any recommendations would be helpful. Thank you Kevin

Ideal location! Exactly what we hoped. Room was just as advertised and ideal for a fun family vacation. Agree with other reviews about the friendly service. I would recommend this place to friends and would come back for another trip too.

Very accommodating with our group wanting a later check in time in the evening. Apartment was nice and exactly what we needed for a short break in Dublin.

I want to establish that I will be reviewing the apartment I was given, which is not the same as the one pictured here. We booked the apartment shown on this page but there seemed to be some confusion when we checked-in because the individual that we had been in communication with had left the property management group and the new coordinators seemed to be playing catch up with our reservation. Despite the mix up in communication and the apartment itself, Kevin was able to accommodate our request for an earlier check-in which was greatly appreciated considering it offered us an opportunity to off load our luggage before exploring Dublin. The location of the apartment complex is phenomenal. Right across the bridge from the Temple Bar area and has a lot of pubs and restaurants in the immediate area. We found that we were right in the middle of everything and could walk to any major site in Dublin. The apartment was spacious with two bedrooms and came with fresh linens. There was no air conditioning but the large windows cooled the space quickly. The bathroom was not the cleanest unfortunately and had some mild mold issues with floor because of the shower not properly containing the water from the tub. Again this might not be an issue with this apartment directly as I assume we were in a neighboring apartment. Aside from that we were very pleased with our stay overall and wouldn't hesitate to stay in this area again.

Nancy was a fantastic host. Honestly, perfect. Responsive from the first inquiry and throughout our arrival and stay. Answered every question and anticipated many others. Apartment is wonderfully located: super close to Temple Bar, Trinity College/Book of Kells, Jervis shopping, and 133 steps to an M&S Food Hall.

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!
