"We loved our 8 night stay in The Upstairs Apartment! Although, getting to Ireland was an awful experience (thanks to American Airlines). It was very comfortable for the four of us. We were happy to find the apartment exactly like the pictures, and the location was in a wonderful area, with easy access to the downtown area. Everything, you could imagine needing for a stay away from home was already thought of and close at hand. We took the Luas everywhere we went. We loved, and enjoyed the Italian restaurant and The Black Lion pub immensely. Here is a tip for you, if you do not mind walking, should you go on the Hop on Hop off bus tour. Get off at Kilmainham Gaol and walk the 15 minutes to the apartment save on the bus/Luas fare. The owner (Gráinne) was in constant contact with us, the caretaker (Valerie), and the taxi driver (Rory) were most helpful. We felt like we were in good hands. We will be back to stay in Inchicore, Dublin. We would encourage anyone looking for a quiet, comfortable, relaxing, and convenient place to stay in Dublin, to definitely stay at the Old World apartments. Thanks again Grainne and Team!"Guest: The Malone's Date of Stay: June 2014 Review Submitted: July 21, 2014View listing
"A group of 7 of us traveled to Ireland for the Penn State game. This house was wonderful. The property was clean and well-maintained. The house really was a home away from home for us. The location to Dublin City made most things walkable. But above all else, Simon was a huge help to us. He genuinely cared about our experience in Ireland and was avail 24/7 for anything we needed. He even met us at 7:00 a.m. the last morning to make sure everything was OK on our trip."Guest: Marlene K. Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: September 6, 2014View listing
"Four friends and I stayed at the Apartment for a long weekend in mid July. The apartment was very well equipped, had a great shower and was very quiet. The location was also great, being just a 10 minute taxi from the city centre and a bus stop directly across the road. We had a great stay and would not hesitate in recommending the apartment for other."Guest: Karen Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: August 18, 2014View listing
