We live in Florida, this is our second Dublin home. We visit it every year. It is a modern flat (built in 2006) in a very well maintained building. We are 2 blocks from the entrance to Trinity College and you can walk to every major attraction in central Dublin from our flat. The building is located on a side street between Pearse Street and Townsend Street and boasts a roof garden which has views over the rooftops of much of Dublin.
We have (November 2013) completely painted and furnished the flat. You enter into a marbled floor 'T' shaped entrance way which, with its 2.6 metre (8.5 feet) ceilings, feels very spacious. All rooms are accessed via this entryway. There are 2 good size bedrooms. The master bedroom has an extremely comfortable USA king size bed with ample wardrobe and drawer space. It also has its own patio. The master bathroom (en suite) is quite large with a shower, toilet and wash basin. The second bedroom (quite large for a European second bedroom) has two large very comfortable single beds and ample wardrobe space. Upon request, these beds can be locked together and, with a topper, provide a second USA king size bed. The bedroom has access to a second patio. The second bathroom has a bathtub/shower combination and is also quite spacious. The living room has a 32” LED flat screen TV, a Blu-ray DVD player and a stereo system. A comfortable sofa and an additional chair provides seating for 4 people. There is access to the second patio. The dining area, with its leather chairs, accommodates 5 people. The kitchen is fully equipped to serve 6 people. It is a 'Bosch' kitchen with an electric oven, stove top and microwave oven. There is a powerful extraction fan over the stove top. The large frost free refrigerator and the dishwasher are 'built in'. There is a separate laundry room with a Miele washer and dryer.
There is free, high speed internet service for your ipads and laptops. SKY satellite TV delivers over 100 channels, several of which are international. The phone service offers free calling to landlines in Ireland and many overseas countries.
The 'fifth' person is accommodated via an air mattress in the living room.
The flat is located on the first floor (second by North American definition) of the building. There is a lift (elevator). An intercom service from the flat to the front door allows for remote door opening.
The Luas (tram) service (both the 'red' and the 'green' lines) are a 10 minute walk from the flat. The Dart train station is 2 minutes away. There are several pubs and restaurants within a 2 block walk of the flat and many more within a 4 block walk. Trinity College (home of the book of Kells) and Temple Bar (pubs) are a 5 minute walk. Grafton Street (shopping) and St Stephen's Green are a 10 minute walk. A 15 - 20 minute walk will get you to the Dublin Castle, St Patrick's Cathedral, Christchurch Cathedral and the GPO building (famous for the 1916 rising). The Garden of Remembrance and the Guinness Factory are a 30 - 35 minutes walk.
Within the flat building (on the ground floor) are several shops and offices, including a small supermarket which is open until 19:00. There is a large Tesco supermarket in Temple Bar - 4 blocks away.
