Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Really comfortable apartment which is within very easy distance of the centre. Very clean and well equipped. Emailed Patrick and always got quick reply. Randy was polite and helpful, we were allowed to drop our bags early after arriving so we didn't have to lug them around town. Would highly recommend staying here.

The flat was as described. I wouldn't choose this location again. The bedrooms are on the street and the street is very noisy. The apartment is surrounded by many buildings that are in need of repair. Garbage was littered on the street as well. Randy was the highlight. He checked us in, showed us how everything worked, and were we had an issue with the shower he came right over.

exceptional deal in central Dublin

  • 5 of 5

This is a really good deal in a central location, a clean, comfortable, well-presented two-bedroom flat in a development with parking behind a Georgian façade not far from Parnell Square. It has no double bed, other than the fold-out sofas in the living-room, but if that suits you it was really the best deal I found. I was grateful, and surprised, it was available and felt the same after being there for three days. It would be difficult to find a more hospitable owner than Pat Collins, even in a nation of hospitable people. I mentioned that the day we arrived was my daughter's birthday and he had the place festooned with balloons and sweets and a cake. It has a little terrace, light and is very secure.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your positive feedback. it was my pleasure to make you and your family feel welcome and to surprise your daughter on her birthday. You probably meant to mention that there are also two bedrooms in the apartment, one with two single beds and one with a bunk bed. I hope you and your family make a return visit.
