                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1986

                  About the owner: I'm Gráinne, originally from Co. Kildare and raised in a small family run hotel. I am married to Tim who is now retired from An Garda Siochána (Irish Police). Tim and I purchased this property in 1986 and lived here for a number of years until our family grew and we needed to relocate. We loved living in this area and have many happy memories of our first home here. I have consistently worked in the hospitality industry and always wanted to provide holiday accommodation here as I felt this to be an ideal location. I have been lucky enough to have realized my dream. I pay particular attention to detail and set the highest of standards in cleanliness and customer care. Our aim is to ensure that you really feel at home and comfortable in our apartment and we will endeavor to assist you in any way with any aspect of your vacation, so that you get the most out of your trip to Dublin. We are at the end of the phone 24 hours a day if you need any assistance. Assuring you of our best attention.

                  Why the Owner Chose Dublin:
                  We chose this location because of close proximity to downtown Dublin. We loved the period red brick property with large rooms. Fantastic large enclosed rear which is very private and unusual for a city centre property. Easy access to any part of the countryside and still only 10 minutes from downtown. Nice residential old part of Dublin with true Dublin characters in abundance. Settled community with lots of nice neighbors whom you can be sure will speak to you if you bump into them. All facilities such as banks, pharmacies, supermarkets, butchers, gas station, restaurants, pubs, hair and beauty salons, dry cleaners, etc on the street. Super public transport with the Luas and Dublin bus.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  The most unique benefit is the location. Only 10 minutes from downtown Dublin with that real at home feeling when you arrive back after your day out. The house was built in the 1800's and has a lovely spacious and tranquil feeling to it. I love the large rooms and high ceilings with the original coving and open fire which is really cozy on a Winter's evening. In the Summer time, we enjoyed many barbeques out back, and found it peaceful and quiet. One huge benefit and highly unusual in a city apartment is the amount of both indoor and outdoor space.
