  • Stay Here

    "The apartment is in a secure building and a great location for walking to all key spots in Dublin. The National Concert Hall is just a couple blocks away and museums not too much further. You can walk along the tow path beside the Canal to get into the city too.most locals seem to use that route as well. There is a metro station there but we never needed it - it's convenient if you do. The owners are easy to work with and prompt in responding to all my inquiries. The amenities including American style washer and dryer were nice touches. The beds are very comfortable. Being next to the hotel ensures easy access to taxi service at all hours."

  • Comfy Flat in a Perfect Location

    "The Bachelor’s Walk Dublin flat was perfect for our 3 night stay at the end of our 2 week Ireland trip. The flat is about a 30 minute taxi ride from Dublin Airport, and is perfectly situated close to the action. Down the elevator and out the front door and you are in the mix of the bustling city of Dublin. Easy access to public transport and the HOHO bus, plus plenty of spots just outside the doorstep to eat, drink, shop and take in the sites. Once in the flat though, you’d think you are in a suburban neighborhood…you hear almost nothing as the windows and small balcony overlook a large, pleasant courtyard. A relaxing respite from the bustling city. The flat itself was spotlessly clean and quite spacious…it met all of our needs for a 3 night stay. The master bedroom was actually a bit larger than the pictures on the website depict, and it was nice having 2 bathrooms. The kitchen is small but we only cooked breakfast a couple of days, so it was adequate for our needs. It was nicely fitted with updated appliances and more than enough kitchen ‘hardware’ if you wanted to cook a real meal. The washer and dryer also came in handy and was larger than some of the European washers/dryers I’ve experienced in other vacation rentals. The living room was perfect for relaxing in the evening (again, it seemed a bit larger than the pictures show) and the furniture was very comfortable. It was also nice to be able to open up the balcony windows/door to get fresh air in the morning while enjoying our coffee. Also, David, the owner, was great to work with…very responsive and provided all the details of how everything works in the flat, and he stayed in contact with me over the several months from making our reservation up to a day or so before our arrival. I would highly recommend this flat to anyone wanting a stay close to the action…a far better choice than any hotel room in my opinion."
