The Space

Bedroom in an apartment in the heart of old Dublin. Located in Dublin 8 beside the world famous and historic Guinness brewery and museum, the apartment also lies beside the centuries old Meath Street and Thomas Street market areas. 5 minutes walk from the Jameson whiskey distillery and museum in Smithfield, 10 minutes walk from Temple bar and the exciting Dublin night life world famous for 'the craic' and lots of pubs, clubs, music venues, street performers, gigs, and lots more. Also 10 minutes from the main shopping districts of Grafton Street, O'Connell Street, Henry Street etc., and 10 minutes from Trinity College and a host of city centre museums. The beautiful Phoenix park (Europe's largest urban park) is also a short walk away, and is host to the city zoo, amazing scenery, and herds of deer among other things. The apartment is in the city centre, boasting all of the transport benefits to the airport and other parts of the country etc. Realistically, there is too much to write about as the apartment is in the heart of the city and benefits from all of the above and much more. Get over here quick and check it out for yourself!!

  • I stayed at Karoona and Damien's place for one month, and I had a very good stay there. Room and refrigerator prived, free access in common areas, I felt comfortable from the first days! There is just 15 minutes walk to go up to the center (25 minutes to O' Connell Street), what allows to live in a quiet place, but to be rather close to the excitement of the city. There are shops and stores close to the place, and lot of things to discover in the city.
    Karoona and Damien are always available, even if they are busy with their work ! I am glad to have met them ! Thank you very much for this excellent month in Dublin !

  • Karoona and Damien are chilled and relaxed, easy to get along with.

    I stayed for about a week while apartment-hunting, which worked well - their place is about 15 minutes walk along the quays into the centre of town, so it's pretty central. There were some minor issues with the bathroom plumbing, but they had it pretty much sorted out before I got there so it didn't affect me.

    The room is simple but has a nice large double bed, and is pretty comfy. For any tourists visiting Dublin, I'd recommend Karoona & Damien's place as a good base to see the city from!

  • Karoona 'Compassion' and Damien are really friendly and open minded. That place is near to Smithfield, Thomas st, the nice big Phoenix park... I stayed 1 month here, in July, with an amazing sunny summer, so come in to Dublin, the weather and people aren't cold ;)

  • Karoona made my stay in Dublin a good experience. She is well located, I could walk to all the locations I needed to visit. When I had a problem with mail she did everything within her power to resolve the problem.

  • Karoona's apartment is within walking distance to the main places you'll want to visit howeve a lot of Dublin outside of the main areas is not very nice. Be aware that if you book here it won't seem nice at night. If you come in late I recommend taking a taxi. Also be sure you have a way to contact karoona, because the buzzer doesn't work and you'll be stuck out on the street. Additionally the bathroom was not very clean while I was there.

  • Karoona and Damien were absolutely fantastic hosts! Theyre both very knowledgeable on Dublin and were able to recommend things to do and see, good pubs and restaurants. They even took us out the first night we were there!
    The apartment is very well situated with only a short walk to main attractions, shops, pubs etc.
    Thanks again guys had an awesome time!

  • Karoona y Damien son personas estupendas, simpáticas y amables.
    Fueron de gran ayuda para desenvolverme en la ciudad de Dublín y
    cuando el trabajo me lo permitió, pasé con ellos momentos muy agradables.

  • Fred et moi même avons passé 4 jours et 3 nuits chez Karoona et Damien ; leur appartement et très bien situé à quelques minutes à pieds de Temple Bar... Damien nous a donné des précieux conseils par les visites et nous a également indiqué quelques pubs sympathiques.

    Response from Karoona:

    Merci Anne-Marie :)
    Translation to English: Myself & Fred spent 4 days and 3 nights with Karoona and Damien. Their apartment well-located, a stone-throw from Temple Bar and Damien even gave us thoughtful ideas on where to go and showed us the some lovely pubs to try

  • I have nothing but positive things to say about my stay with Karoona and Damien. They are very friendly and do their utmost to ensure that their guests have everything they need. They are also quite well located to the city center (10 minutes by bus or 15-20 minutes by foot). The room is minimalist but definitely suited my needs well. Because I was away attending conference events during much of my stay, I could only chat with them at its beginning but enjoyed our conversation! I would definitely consider staying with them again in the future. Thanks Karoona and Damien!
