We (family of 3) stayed here for two weeks during Christmas this year (2014), and absolutely loved it. The house itself is beautifully decorated throughout, and contained absolutely everything we needed to have a spacious and extremely comfortable home away from home throughout our stay. Sinead the host is fantastic, very thoughtful, helpful, and always very responsive—it was always a pleasure to chat with her. As an ex-Dubliner myself, I can assure you the location is superb, about a 10-15 mins walk to the top of Grafton Street, and situated right on the canal. We'll be back, guaranteed. Thanks for everything Sinead, we had a really fantastic stay!
The cottage was cozier and more comfortable than we could have hoped for. Perfectly clean and welcoming. Bright and cheery. Exactly what we needed for the last 3 of a 12 day trip. The neighborhood felt safe and quiet, and we had no problem walking to wherever our plans took us. Highly recommended.
This was our first experience with AirBnb and it was wonderful. Sinead emailed me in advance of our stay to confirm our visit and provide information about checking in. She was very responsive in her communication and we knew exactly what to do when we got to Dublin. We were able to drop our bags off early, even before the place was cleaned (then we went somewhere for a late breakfast), which was nice, because we had just flown in and were quite tired. She provided detailed instructions about the flat and the neighborhood. Because she writes a restaurant blog, she even provided great information about local restaurants! The flat was exactly as described and photographed; very charming and full of amenities. The neighborhood was a nice residential area; very accessible to central Dublin via bus. We might have walked more, except that I was rehabbing from an injury. We had a wonderful stay in Dublin and Sinead was even very nice about the only negative, which was that I lost my rental cell phone. The only unexpected, slightly negative part was that there was some road noise which we heard from the front bedroom; fortunately, ear plugs and white noise took care of that and we were able to sleep well. I strongly recommend this location. And I loved our visit to Ireland so much, I hope I can return in the future and stay longer. Thank you so much, Sinead!
The property itself was ok however the house next door is derelict and people used it to dump their rubbish. The house did have damp in the walls and as a result there was a musty smell and the sink did not work properly. The owner however did make us feel welcome and it was close to where we needed to go for our stay, but I don't think it represented value for money.
Had a seamless interaction with Sinead, who was a very accommodating host. Very easy to check in, and she gave me some really great recommendations for restaurants and cafes in the area, as well as some bread, butter, and eggs in the fridge. Also, when there was a brief problem with the internet, she called the provider and had it resolved in only a couple of hours.
The flat is really large and well laid-out, with a full-sized kitchen that opens up into a very bright and airy living room. Nice, big bathroom and bedrooms, and really fun, attractive decor throughout. Brand new washer, dryer, and dishwasher. Also an abundance of really interesting-looking books that I unfortunately did not have much opportunity to read! Oh,. and a very nice little garden off the living area, too.
The location is really nice, though a bit of a (very pleasant!) walk to the central/tourist areas of the city, which I didn't mind. Maybe 20 minutes or so. But only 10 minutes at the most to a host of pubs, restaurants, cafes, etc. on Richmond Street, and a couple of nice restaurants a stone's throw from the flat itself. It's great to have the canal the leafy walking path alongside it literally across the street!
The only things I'd mention that were not entirely ideal is that some of the bedding could stand to be replaced relatively soon, and the mattress in the smaller bedroom might be comfortable enough for younger children, but not for adults.
Overall a very good experience, and great value.
Indeed a stylish cottage and in a perfect location for exploring Dublin and eating locally. Sinead was very helpful and understanding when we locked ourselves out! We would stay again though there are small things that seem a bit tired in the house.
Fantastic stay, all as described. Very quaint cottage right on the canal with beautiful interiors. Nice central part of Dublin.
Lovely little cottage in central Dublin. Nice location near the canal 15-20 min walk to the centre of town, museums etc. Well equipped kitchen, fabulous bathroom with a massive bath and HUGE dumping shower head and most importantly a wonderful and helpful host.
