"We could not have picked a better place for a week exploring Dublin and the surrounding area. The property is pleasant, quiet and with views of the Irish Sea. The owner was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. There are also beautiful flowers on the back deck and the kitchen is enormous and airy. We were very comfortable with two pre-teens and my mother in law too. The property has that antique, homey feel and it was hard to say goodbye at the end of our holiday. Dalkey itself is a beautiful village with very warm local inhabitants. It is a short walk to the DART station as well as to ATMS, shops, cafes...etc. We cannot wait to return! Thank you Ken!"Guest: Bill Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: August 3, 2014View listing

"This was my second stay in two years at this apartment. For those who have never been to Dublin, I cannot stress the excellent location of this apartment enough. As soon as you walk out of the door, you're in the middle of everything. Temple Bar is just across the street via Hapenny Bridge. O'Connell Street is just around the corner. I've stayed at several hotels in Dublin and none compare to the comfort, location or quietness of this place. As an added bonus, the owner is a pleasure to deal with and has been very accomodating to our travel schedule. He provides all of the information you'll need during your stay down to the smallest detail - taking all of the guess work out of your trip. I would highly recommend this location for anyone who wants to be at the center of it all. It's beautifully furnished and having all the amenities of home is great. I loved having a washer and dryer during our stay - something few hotels or apartments offer. Thanks for having us again. I'm sure we'll be contacting about another stay soon!"Guest: Colleen Date of Stay: May 2014 Review Submitted: May 15, 2014View listing
