Whether you are travelling to Dublin for business or pleasure, this property has everything you need for an enjoyable trip.
This is a private, self-contained apartment. The main front door is shared with four other apartments in the building and has its own private intercom system.
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 the car park behind the building.
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 on our doorstep. 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 the 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 can expect people!
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.
We had numerous pre-trip communications, which helped enormously. Nancy was helpful in every facet of arriving, getting around, and tips on what to do. Both she and Kevin were there whenever we needed them (except at checkout, so I hope that went ok). The apartment was all about 'location, location, location'. It could NOT have been better! In addition, while we didn't spend a lot of time IN the apartment other than to sleep, it was great, especially considering the very downtown location. We parked a car there, which was a breeze, had plenty of space for 4 people, plenty of hot water and other amenities, and while the bedrooms and baths were on the smaller side, they were well-appointed, comfortable and more than adequate. Again, considering you are RIGHT downtown, you could say it was spacious for the price!
First of all, the photos of the flat do not give it any justice! The flat is surprisingly big, wonderfully decorated and was super clean.
Considering the excellent central location of the flat, it was very quiet and we all slept really well in very comfortable beds.
Our host Nancy is truly a genuinely fantastic host! She met us when we arrived, described all the details we needed for the flat and recommended a fantastic place to eat.
She also very kindly, arranged a bottle of bubbles for my fiancee's birthday!
I cannot recommend this apartment enough.
Thank you so much Nancy!
Location was amazing! Close enough to the center of town yet quiet enough neighborhood. The beds were very comfortable and the Easter Bunny even visited! Perfect for our family of 6.
Nancy made us feel very welcome for our stay in Dublin, the apartment was as described - lots of space, good facilities and clean and comfy bedding and laundry.
Nancy was always really helpful with any questions and responded quickly to any phonescalls or texts.
The apartment itself is in a great location to explore the city and is a small walk from all the amenities, bars, pubs and cafés.
I wouldn't have any hesitation in recommending the apartments and Nancy to other users
Our 4 day stay in a 2 bedroom apartment was fantastic. Nancy was really friendly on our arrival, letting us check in early and helpful with local restaurant recommendations. The location is very central, close to everything, and a reasonably quiet neighbourhood. I’d stay again.
This Apartment was amazing! It was spacious and was exactly as it appears in the photos. It was very clean and had everything we needed. Nancy was very accommodating and helpful with arranging travel, information on the city, and keeping our luggage until check in (or until we needed to catch a flight). I would definitely recommend this spot...the space, size, cleanliness, and location were all great. It was in a perfect spot for me visiting Dublin for the first time. Everything you need is within walking distance. I can't wait to go back!
