  • 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!"

  • Best of the Best!

    "LOOK NO FURTHER; STAY HERE! What a WONDERFUL place to stay! Location is perfect; centrally located. No need for a car and walking is the best way to see the city and sights. The flat is just as described and as shown in the pictures. Beds are comfortable and the flat is spotless (Thank you Maria!). Communication with the owner was prompt and upfront; very refreshing. We were a party of 4 at this flat; my husband and I with my best friend and her 14 yr old. Having 2 bathrooms was a lifesaver in the morning. The Wi-Fi was a blessing, not only for the 14 yr old, but for us old folks too. It allowed us to keep in touch with home as needed. No need for tour books as there are plenty of books in the flat. The kitchen has everything you need. It is wonderful to not have to leave the flat for breakfast or coffee. All of the appliances are in good order and having the American-style washer and dryer was a great surprise! The flat is the perfect place to retire after a long day of sightseeing and shopping. Lots of shopping and pubs near. It is quiet at night and located overlooking the interior courtyard of the building. The owner provides very specific instructions about EVERYTHING prior to arriving at the flat. The owner also provides a book that provides additional information regarding the flat, VERY HELPFUL and appreciated. It takes all of the guessing out of the start of the vacation. I would definitely stay here again and recommend this flat to everyone. Cross the bridge and you are in the Temple Bar area, Trinity College, Grafton for shopping and lots of eating options. The Tesco and other markets are near. If you don’t want to walk, there are bus stops in front of the flat and if you want to do the touristy thing, you can take the Hop-on-Hop-off bus right in front of the flat. One last suggestion about Dublin, don’t miss the GUINESS factory tour, definitely worth visiting! Overall, having stayed at the flat made our vacation that much better since we did not have to think about or worry about our lodging. If we return to Dublin, this is where I am staying."

  • Wonderful Stay in Dublin

    "Comfortable condo, everything within walking distance or you can just walk in front of the Hilton and pick up a cab. Owner was friendly, gracious and helpful and always prompt responding to questions. Beds are super comfortable. Honestly couldn't have asked for a better place to stay, close enough to everything but far enough away for a nice quiet place to sleep. All conveniences within a minutes walking distance, grocery, pub and coffee shop. Easy trip from the airport to the condo."

    "We enjoy renting apts when we travel abroad and this unit surpassed our expectations. It was very spacious, comfortable and charming. Great location which allowed us easy access to shops and traveling to sights. The owner spared no details for making our 3 week stay comfortable. This property enhanced our visit to Dublin & we would return to this apt whenever we visit again."
