Killiney condo description

With a wonderful view of Killiney Bay, the 1500 sq. ft.(140 sq. m.) apartment has been built to the very highest specification. From the wide balcony to the built in wine cooler, from the large comfortable bed rooms to the state-of-the-art kitchen, this apartment will be a perfect base for you in Dublin. It has direct access to Killiney beach (where the new-fangled idea of 'sea-bathing' became popular in the 18th century) and is immediately adjacent to the suburban rail (DART) station with frequent service into the center of Dublin (just 30 minutes away).

To visit the Book of Kells (in Trinity College) or absorb the atmosphere of a modern European capital just hop on the DART. For sightseeing in Dublin city you will probably not use a car but the apartment is also the perfect base for touring. The southern end of the ring road around Dublin (M50) is a short 5 minute drive. You will have no difficulty finding the routes to the South and West.

Wicklow - known as the 'garden of Ireland' - is on your doorstep. Glendalough is only a 40 minute drive away. Closer to home you might take the 5 minute walk up the hill behind you to see the 7th century ruins of the Church of the Daughters of Léinín (Cill Ínion Léinín - now in English: Killiney). Dalkey with its many restaurants and stores is one stop away on the DART. The town of Dun Laoghaire with its large harbour and four sailing clubs is only 10 minutes away on the DART line. Killiney Golf Club (9 holes) is close by. Killiney Hill Park, with amazing views over Dublin city and from where the mountain ranges of Wales are visible on a clear day, is a 5 minute drive.

Visitors traveling overnight from North America might note that many flights arrive in Europe in the early morning. Due to the need to facilitate departing guests and to clean the apartment, the apartment is usually available for occupation in mid-afternoon on the day of arrival, around 3.30pm.

Whether you are coming to Ireland to tour or to relax, whether your idea of a perfect Dublin evening will be centered on a play by Samuel Beckett or Sean O'Casey in the National (Abbey) Theatre in the city or on a convivial Dalkey pub like Finnegans, the apartment will suit you perfectly as a base.

                    Everything was absolutely perfect! The spacious apartment is beautifully finished to a very high standard with marble flooring, high ceilings, pot lighting (including in the balcony floor), gas fireplace, luxuriously appointed baths, down filled sofas, the works! The well equipped kitchen is very ‘high end’ with top of the line appliances, 6 burner gas cooktop, wall ovens, microwave and the dual temperature wine fridge is a nice touch. The view from the large glass front balcony overlooking Killiney bay and the Irish Sea was a particular treat. This small exclusive complex is very private and secure and I can’t imagine a better location. Killiney is an upscale enclave just 20 minutes south of Dublin. The Dart train station is right across the road and this highly efficient system will give you quick access to Dublin and several towns north and south of the city. You can also access the main rail system from the Dart to visit all parts of Ireland. We had a car rental during our two week stay, but found the Dart to be a great way to get around. The owners are friendly and very responsive to any questions, but don’t interfere with your stay. Onsite management at the gated entrance was also very helpful and treated us like one of their permanent residents. In fact, everyone in Ireland is warm, friendly and quick to offer guidance when asked. Over the years we have travelled extensively to many countries around the world and rented vacation homes on numerous occasions. This was a wonderful experience from the booking process with the owner to our departure from the apartment. We would rate this vacation home as a 5 star plus! Enjoy!

                    We really enjoyed our stay at this stylish apartment. It was very comfortable and very warm, and full of all the creature comforts one expects from a home away from home. Needless to say the property was spotlessly clean on our arrival and is very easy to keep clean. The kitchen is excellently equipped with everything one could need (including large mugs for that morning cup of tea - a pet hate of mine renting properties is to find only tiny coffee cups). Our two girls loved playing in the gardens and on the beach, and the proximity to excellent public transport was a real bonus. There is an excellent collection of books and dvds for those quite nights in too! We saw some beautiful sunrises from the balcony, which is acutally very private and not overlooked. In fact watching the sun rise in our pyjamas with a big mug of tea became one of the surprise delights of the holiday. The owner met us on arrival and showed us around. Apart from that, we were left completely undisturbed, save that any queries we had were answered immediately. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this property. We look forward to returning.

                    This is a very nice apartment that one should consider if they are touring on the eastern side of Ireland. It has a great location just south of Dublin situated for easy rail or private vehicle travel. The owners are very responsive and easy to communicate with.

                    This location is perfect for traveling to the small areas within Dublin County and to get to the main train station to travel to other areas. Easy to hop on the train across the street and try out different areas and new resturants and sites. The beach is right across the street as well and is very popular. The apartment is beautiful and spacious and filled with books to help with navagating Ireland. Everyone was very friendly and the area felt very safe Owners are very responsive. We loved this trip and will likely visit here again

                    I would highly recommend this beautiful apartment to anyone wanting to stay in the Dublin area. It looked even better than the pictures posted. The apartment was very clean and the kitchen had everything you could need and more. The water view from the apartment will take your breath away. We even saw dolphins jumping in the bay. We did not meet the owners, but via texting and phone were well taken care of re any questions we had. We did not have a vehicle and so used the Dart exclusively to get around. It was just across the street, so could not be more convenient. The Dart takes about 25 minutes to Dublin. There is a nearby quaint village called Dalkey that had many shops, restaurants, etc. Beautiful walks in the area as well. This apartment will help to make your Ireland vacation even more memorable. We were sorry to have to leave.

                    This elegant property is conveniently located on killiney beach. A 20 min dart ride into the heart of Dublin or a 20 minute drive to explore the Wicklow Mountains! The property itself has a stunning kitchen, warm fireplace, high ceilings and marble floors -- VERY WELL appointing in every aspect! VERY VERY comfortable property! The photos do not do this property justice.

                    This apartment was a great home base to see the Eastern side of Ireland because of the convenience of using the Dart train system. It was only a short walk from the Dart to the apartment. The apartment was beautiful in every way, quality throughout. We have stayed in wonderful apartments and homes throughout the world through VRBO, and this was the nicest of them all. The view was spectacular, as was the decor. Marble in the bathroom, wood counters, lovely pictures on the walls, just top notch all the way. The owner was very helpful, kind and a great support. We highly recommend this apartment to others. Enjoy!

                    It is not too often that you get a sea view like this in Dublin. We were in Dublin for a week to attend a family reunion and this apartment really hit the spot. We had two kids (6 + 1) and a granny in tow and the large two bed apt coped very well. It was spotlessly clean and the owners were on hand if there were any issues (which there were not). The description is accurate but the photos dont do it justice. It was bigger than expected and when the sun was shining the view from the balcony was beautiful. Killiney beach is no more than 2/3 minutes walk from the apt. The Dart rail link to Dublin is literally across the road but you do not get disturbing train noise at all. Driving to Dublin is easy and the mountains and the beaches of County Wicklow are also very accesible by car. I will definitley use this property again and would not hesitate to recommend it to friends.

                    My wife and I stayed here for a week along with our toddler and it was absolutely perfect. The setting is beautiful - the beach is literally across the street, there are gorgeous views of the sea from the apartment, and the nearby town of Dalkey is picturesque and full of charm. We began our day each morning with a long walk on the beach, and often popped into Dalkey afterwards for a late breakfast or early lunch. There's a train station across the street as well, and from it the journey into Dublin takes only 20 or 30 minutes. We also rented a car during our visit and the apartment is within easy reach of a number of main arteries striking north, south and west. The apartment itself is beautifully appointed and full of modern conveniences. We were there in November and particularly enjoyed the gas fireplace and large soaking tub. The kitchen is equipped with state-of-the-art appliances and cooking facilities and because of it, and the comfortably large dining room, we were able to entertain friends for dinner. Finally, the owners were extremely welcoming and helpful at every turn. We would recommend this apartment without hesitation. We ourselves will likely rent it again on our next trip to Ireland.

                    our stay in Killiney was perfect! This was due mostly in part to the owners of the apartment. They were so gracious and helpful in every way. There were a couple of mishaps during the beginning of our stay and the owners were easily accessible and did everything they could to help and fix the problems. The apartment is clean, elegantly furnished and well stocked with all of the comforts of home. The gated entry, elevator and spectacular view were fabulous. Having the DART within walking distance was great and it made my travels to and from my conference a breeze. It is well worth the trip and I hope to return with my family very soon.
