Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Dear Guests, I returned home to Ireland some years ago after many years of living overseas. Having travelled so often ourselves, with a lively & engaged family, we've put our experiences into practice in our approach to offering short-rental/holiday apartments. Dublin and Galway are our chosen locations, as we know they are such interesting places to visit and you'll truly enjoy spending holiday time there at any time! Dublin offers a marvellous variety of theatre, music, arts & literary events, and language is not a problem. With so many things to do and places to go, a week is sometimes not enough. Our part is to ensure you have a welcoming and smart home-away-from-home that is easy to manage and offers some luxurious respite from all the activities.

Why the Owner Chose Dublin:
Dublin is a great town to visit! It is a bustling and lively university city that sits at the bay between beautiful Howth Head and Dun Laoghaire Pier. There are many activities and events running all over town making for a great sense of things to be done, with people always on the move. Downtown there is a great atmosphere amongst thousands of visitors and our location is excellent for quick & easy access to all the fun, and yet offers a calming respite from the busi-ness! With the many festivals and activities, the city is alive with restaurants, cafe-bars and offers many unique, traditional bars and pubs, where the lively music & chat awaits you...

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Ease of tranporting yourself around the city centre is one of our unique strengths. Pretty well just outside our door, the Dublin City Bus services whizz you off downtown at regular intervals, and it is so easy to return this way. Alternatively, if you've had a great night on the town, you jump into a taxi and it does not cost an arm & a leg! - just 8 to 10 euro will see you home from most downtown locations. Directions are easy - our complex is on the junction of Cork Street with Marrowbone Lane. With bedrooms overlooking the quiet back gardens, you are also getting a peaceful nights' sleep.
