  • Great time on Dingle Peninsula

    "We stayed at this wonderful house for 7 nights and wished we had stayed longer. We did 3 big hikes in the area and had a wonderful time relaxing. Everything was great (the refrigerator was smaller then anticipated. My husband is on a strict diet of plant based food and it was hard to store all of our food). But, I would definitely recommend this place. Kevin was so easy to work with and even recommended places to stay in the Galway area after we left his place. Wonderful memories of our trip to Ireland and the best memories will always be the time we spend in the Dingle area."

  • Met All Our Expectations Plus!

    "Martin and his family know how to offer a true Irish welcome. He was always generous with his time and hospitality. We had food in the frig, a hot meal welcoming us and goodies shared with us throughout the week. The cottage was lovely and roomy enough for 6 people to have both privacy and shared space. It was spotless and enhanced by a fire that was lit for us each night. All amentities were as described. The cottage was on a quiet country road about 10 min from a major highway and other roads that lead to major areas, i.e. Adare, Cashel, Killarney, Cahir, Limmerick, the ferry to county Clare, Galway, Cork, etc. There is also a town about 10 minutes away with a selection of supermarkets, restaurants and a pharmacy among others. It was great to be near but not in the middle of a bustling tourist area. It gave us the ability to see the sites and still have the quiet of the countryside. Not only would I recommend the cottage, I would look forward to staying again."

  • Our home away from Home!

    "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!"

  • Perfect!

    "Many thanks Liz! We loved our Galway City stay. We were here for 4 days, and your apartment is perfectly located. We were able to walk everywhere and enjoy all the sights. The attention to detail (flowers, welcome basket) and your recommendations for the local markets and sites were very appreciated. Thank you so much .... Perhaps we'll be lucky enough to return one day. :) Val and Ben"
