Dublin apartment description

Please contact us VIA EMAIL. Please also check the calendar for availability prior to emailing (the calendar is always up to date).

We live in Seattle and this is our Dublin home. We stay here 4 to 6 weeks per year. We lived here for 5 years before moving to the US in 2010, so the apartment itself and all of its furnishings are high quality. The apartment was also fully refurbished in February 2012.

The apartment is in a superb, hard to beat location for walking to every major attraction in central Dublin, including the Guinness Storehouse (15 minutes), St. Patrick’s Cathedral (2 minutes), Christchurch Cathedral (5 minutes), St. Stephens Green (10 minutes), Grafton Street (10 minutes), Trinity College (15 minutes), Temple Bar (15 minutes), O’Connell Street (15 minutes) and the GPO (the site of the 1916 Easter Rising).

The apartment is in a small building of 7 apartments, with only 1 other apartment on the same floor as ours so there are no noisy neighbors to content with. The apartment is on Francis Street in an area known as Dublin's Antique Quarter.

Having been constructed in 2005 the apartment is quiet, warm in the winter, cool during the summer, with a small balcony and large floor to ceiling windows / doors which can be opened on to it.

The apartment has 2 good size bedrooms, one with a queen bed and one with a double bed. The master bedroom is en suite, with ample wardrobe and drawer space. The second bedroom also has ample wardrobe and drawer space. Both bathrooms have spacious, pumped, electric showers. The large living area has a 42” flat screen plasma TV, and two large comfortable sofa’s. The dining area consists of a coffee table in the living area and also a breakfast bar with 3 stools. The kitchen is modern and fully equipped, with an oven, fast heating hob and powerful extractor fan. There is a large fridge / freezer, a dishwasher, a washer / dryer, a microwave and a coffee maker.

There is free, fast cable internet service (with a wi-fi connection).

The apartment is located on the third floor (fourth by North American definition) of the building. There is an elevator and an intercom service from the apartment to the front door allowing for remote door opening.

There are numerous restaurants and ‘take-aways’ nearby offering a variety of cuisines, including Leo Burdocks, the famous Irish fish & chip shop. There is a small grocery store within a 2 minute walk, on Patrick Street, and a large one a 10 minute walk away on George’s Street.

If you plan on renting a car to see the countryside (you do NOT want or need one in Dublin itself) please ask us for our recommendations. Parking is available on the street outside outside the apartment - please note however that this is paid parking (approximately $3.50 per hour).

If our apartment is of interest, please check the calendar for availability (it is always up to date) or feel free to contact us (e-mail is quickest).

We will consider long term / corporate rentals but PLEASE have your dates confirmed and your employers approval before contacting us and having us prepare a quote for you.

PLEASE NOTE THAT CHECK IN TIME IS 3PM. CHECK OUT TIME IS 11AM. An early check in or late check out may be possible but will depend on whether we have another booking the previous night (for early check in) / next night (for late check out).

PLEASE ALSO NOTE THAT THERE IS A 4 NIGHT MINIMUM STAY. THE MINIMUM STAY IS 5 NIGHTS FOR STAYS THAT INCLUDE ST. PATRICKS DAY, GOOD FRIDAY, EASTER SUNDAY, THANKSGIVING, CHRISTMAS EVE, CHRISTMAS DAY, ST. STEPHENS DAY, NEW YEARS EVE OR NEW YEARS DAY

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: Owner is an Irish attorney, married to a Seattle schoolteacher, now living in Seattle.

                  Why the Owner Chose Dublin:
                  Within walking distance of every major attraction in Dublin city, but on a quiet street not surrounded by crowds and pubs / bars which cause noise at night.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  The spire of St. Patrick's Cathedral can been seen from the balcony (and the bells can be heard ringing), and, depending on the wind direction, the smell of the Guinness Brewery can be had when the windows are open!!
