Recent County Dublin property reviews


    "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!"

  • Girls Trip :)

    "My friend and I take a girls trip every year and Ireland was our choice this time. We wanted to stay somewhere that would give us the small town feel and really get a sense of Irish living, but we also wanted to be close enough to all the wonderful sights/things Ireland has to offer :) this place was perfect! We stayed for one week and the weather was amazing, we are from Arizona (USA) so it was nice to escape the heat in July. The town house is super adorable and has everything you need. Pam is very helpful and wonderful, she gave us all the information we needed to make our first international trip as easy as possible :) While we were there we toured many castles and explored many towns that are a very close commute. We used all forms of transportation bus, taxi, train, etc. Balbriggan is a great place for those who want a slower paced relaxing vacation. But if you want to travel to the fast paced city it is available with a short commute via public transportation. We also traveled north to Belfast by train and did a tour at the titanic museum, which was very cool and I highly recommend. It did take up one whole day with travel time and the tour itself, but it was well worth it! There are so many other things we would love to have seen/done but you definitely need more then one week to accomplish all the great things Ireland has to offer. Hopefully we will get to go back to Ireland someday, and if we do then we will probably stay in Balbriggan again or close to it because we loved the area so much! Thank you Pam for all your help, your place in Balbriggan is an adorable, convenient, comfortable home away from home :) we loved everything about it!"

  • Visiting relatives in Ireland

    "We spent two weeks in Howth at this location in August 2011. We found the village charming and the apartment very well located near the Dart and close to restaurants and small groceries. We were able to travel to Dublin and other locations very easily. I would recommend this location to anyone looking for a restful area with the ability to hike the area around Howth or easily visit Dublin and other areas nearby."

  • good location, fun for children, ok house

    "It is hard for me to put actual stars as it is relative to our expectations. If I have to, I'd give 3 stars to the house itself but 4 stars for our experience. We rented 3 houses this summer in Europe. I am grateful for the vrbo community that allowed us to travel comfortably with unique experience, so I wanted to give back with uncandid reviews so you can make your own decision. I apologize in advance if it offends the owner. Pro's - great location: We have families nearby so it was perfect for us. Walking distance to shops, bus stations, and a great play ground. Convenient to down town. We drove, took taxi and buses. They were all easy! - Great fun for children. There is a grass area for the community right out of the door. Our child made friends paying with the neighbor children. The little up-stair loft bedroom was a huge hit for my child and the visiting cousins. The huge chalk board downstairs that serves as a sliding door for the guest bedroom was another highlight for children. Both hosted lots of imaginary plays and art creations. - Good appliances: stove, teakettle, toaster, dishwasher. The washer/dryer was handy (though small and took a long time) Con's - We felt the house was kind of rundown and not well maintained. The garden looked like not being cared for. Some plants unhealthy/dying. - The pantries were completely full that I couldn't unpack our supplies. Many items had long passed expiration date. I ended up reading through all the packages and cleaning out half of the pantries. - I enjoy cooking. There weren't any stainless steel pots/pans. The no-stick ones were quite scratched. Even I just cooked the breakfast, and a couple of lunch/dinner, I had to borrow all the pots and pans from our family nearby. The oven hadn't been well cleaned. We tried it once, the smoke from the previous leftover grease made unpleasant smell so we didn't use it again. - There weren't enough storage for unpacking. We are a family of 3 and stayed for a week, and ended up making the down-stair guest bedroom a storage room. Overall, we still recommend this place to friends but with the details so they can weigh the pro's and con's. We'd also consider renting it again in the future. (if the owner is not offended by this review) We understand it is not easy to upkeep a property in Ireland and appreciate the fun experience and memory it brought to our child, which I do weigh more than our wish for a better maintained house."
