Recent County Dublin reviews
"We recently booked a few days in Dublin and stayed in the Michael Collins apartment, we were very happy with the accommodation and the level of amenities in the flat. It is well situated for easy travel into the city and close to shops and restaurants but still a quiet location. Brendon took us in his taxi from and to the airport and was a font of knowledge for our stay, thank you Tim and Grainne."Guest: The McKennas Date of Stay: October 2014 Review Submitted: December 3, 2014View listing
"The apartment was spotless and very comfortable. Very close to public transportation and shopping. The owners went above and beyond to make sure our questions were answered and that all of our needs were met. It was such a great experience."Guest: Linda Date of Stay: May 2014 Review Submitted: June 1, 2014View listing
"We stayed in the Molly Malone apartment for a week in October and we really enjoyed it! The place is small but comfortable- one word of advice though: the shower is really small, so if you are a larger person you might want to choose one of the larger apartments. The location is excellent- easy access to grocery store and local buses. There is a great pub with wonderful live Irish music within 20 min. walking distance- "The Cobblestone". Liam was very kind, giving us a welcome snack of Irish Soda bread, milk and butter- a life saver after the flight to Dublin. The area around the apartment building felt totally safe, and we highly recommend this apartment for a stay in Dublin.
