  • Great location for a visit to Dublin

    "We stayed in the Molly Malone apartment for a week in October and we really enjoyed it! The place is small but comfortable- one word of advice though: the shower is really small, so if you are a larger person you might want to choose one of the larger apartments. The location is excellent- easy access to grocery store and local buses. There is a great pub with wonderful live Irish music within 20 min. walking distance- "The Cobblestone". Liam was very kind, giving us a welcome snack of Irish Soda bread, milk and butter- a life saver after the flight to Dublin. The area around the apartment building felt totally safe, and we highly recommend this apartment for a stay in Dublin. Heike and Jene, Hailey, Idaho, USA"

  • Small but very comfortable studio apartment.

    "We stayed in the Parnell studio for 4 days and found it very comfortable, albeit a little smaller than it looks in the photo. The location was good - very easy to get to by car and excellent for city bus service or LUAS tram. Parking is great and very secure. Apartment was cozy and bathroom lovely. Some of the dishes and cooking equipment had been moved to other apartments by previous tenants and not replaced, but this issue was fixed immediately on email to Grainne. Great place to stay."

    "We were a group of four university students who wanted to visit the city of Dublin. The apartment was perfect for us, we could go walking to most of the places and if it was necessary we could take a bus (there is a stop in front of the apartment). The aparment was magnific and so clean. It was a warm and confortable place to relax after a day visiting the city centre. If we go back to Dublin, we hope to stay here again :) Thanks to Liam for all his recomendations, his help and his kindness. See you soon, A."
