Great location and a large, clean, and well furnished apartment!
Nice flat, good location near centre, although like the other reviews say, the area did have a few dodgy people hanging around.
Really enjoyed staying here over the holidays. Diane was more than responsive, and made sure we got squared away and prepared for our stay! The place is great, spacious, and conveniently located! Would stay here again for sure.
The apartment is really nicely centrally located! My boyfriend and I found it very easy to walk nearly everywhere, city center, Guinness, Jameson, as well as the tourism office where one of our tours departed from. Diane was extremely friendly, and accommodated our travel plans and arrival. The apartment was extremely clean and spacious, which is ideal when traveling with bulky luggage and clothes. Because the apartment is on the first floor, we kept the curtains closed most of the time and it was a bit dark-- this wasn't a problem, however, because we were barely home during the daytime. The stove in the kitchen happened to be fussy for us, taking a long time to heat up, but other than that, we loved being able to retreat to this cozy apartment after a long day!
Response from Diane:
Glad you enjoyed your stay - it was nice having you. I took note for the curtains - they have now been putted on, as for the stove, i left instruction next to it, on how to use it for the next guests. Thank you again!
Diane is a great communicator! Quick to respond while offering personal attention. Upon my arrival in Dublin, she met me at a local spot and we walked to her listing. It's comfortable and clean. Just the spot I needed after a long day of work. The listing is within walking distance to public transport. Taxis are easy to hail outside, and there is a small convenience store across the street.
It was a pleasure to stay in Diane's house. The apartment is cozy and nice. It's very close to the main O'Connell street and shopping center. Diane was helpful host and hope to come back again.
Diane's place is great, comfortable and was perfect for our short stay. I'll definitely come back here when I'm in Dublin!
Diane's apartment was perfect for my friend and I.
We were warmly welcomed by her. She took time to give us necessary informations about the city.
It's perfectly located, close from everythings, clean, nice and comfortable.
I would totaly recommend her place for a good stay in Dublin.
I was looking for a short term accommodation in Dublin and did spot Diane's Double Room ad. The location was great for my needs, near Blanchardstown Centre (large mall) and the nearby business parks were all in walking distance. So I looked up reviews for Diane's places and based on those greatly positive reviews I decided to contact Diane.
When I arrived in Dublin it was very rainy night, and after reaching Waterville and Diane opened the door I knew this was the right choice. She was very welcoming and open which felt very nice. I have to agree with Luca (review Oct 2013) that Diane is a landlady extraordinaire and her responses to my questions were very helpful for me being first timer in Ireland. She delivers the experience in which the hotels are not able to compete.
Photos of the room and the apartment were accurate, the apartment was bright and very tidy.
I strongly recommend.
