We live in Florida, this is our Dublin home. We visit it every year. It is a superb, impossible to beat, quiet location for walking to every major attraction in central Dublin. The flat building is located on the river Liffey a half block from the O'Connell Bridge. We overlook the well maintained inner courtyard of the flat building and the Dublin rooftops. Because it overlooks the inner courtyard the flat does not pickup street noise and, coupled with its location within the building (it is a penthouse), this maybe the quietest flat in Central Dublin.
In 2011 we completely renovated the flat, which was built in 1994. It is, effectively, new as of 2012. It has 2 good size bedrooms. The master bedroom has an extremely comfortable USA king size bed with ample wardrobe and drawer space. The master bathroom has a spacious pumped shower. The second bedroom has two large very comfortable single beds and ample wardrobe space. The beds can be joined, with a 'topper', to form a second USA king size bed. The second bathroom has a bathtub/electric shower combination. The large living room has a 42” LED flat screen TV, a large comfortable sofa and an additional chair. There is a work desk for laptop use. The dining area, with its leather chairs, easily accommodates 5 people. The kitchen is small but fully equiped to serve 6 people. It has induction, very fast heating, burners, a self clean oven and a powerful extraction fan. There is a large frost free refrigerator and a Bosch dishwasher. The kitchen also contains a Miele washer and a Meile dryer.
There is free, fast cable internet service (connection via both cable and wi fi to your laptop). Cable TV delivers about 80 channels, many of which are international. The phone sevice offers free calling to landlines in many overseas countries and in Ireland.
The 'fifth' person is accommodated via a raised blowup bed in the living room.
The flat is located on the top, fourth, floor (fifth by North American definition) of the building. There is a lift, access to which is by key only. There is an intercom service from the flat to the front door allowing for remote door opening.
The Luas (tram) service is a one block walk and within the same distance there are numerous restaurants offering a variety of cuisines. Within a 10 minute walk are Trinty College (home of the book of Kells), Grafton Street (shopping), Temple Bar (pubs) and the GPO (scene of the 1916 uprising). A 15 minute walk will get you to the Garden of Rembrance, St Stephens Green, Dublin Castle, St Patricks Cathedral and Christchurch Cathedral. The river Liffey with its boat cruises is at your front door.
Within the flat building (on the ground floor) are numerous shops, including a hair salon, a supermarket and several eating places. Within a block there are large Tesco and Marks and Spencers supermarkets and the Jervis centre shopping mall.

We travel a lot and have found having our 'own place' to stay in is really nice. In addition to our base in Florida, we have homes in London and Sydney. Adding Dublin to the list, with an Irish wife, was a no brainer.
Owner purchased this Apartment in 2011
Why Owner chose North City
We wanted a place in downtown Dublin where we can walk to everything. The flat location is ideal (check it out on the map). The flat itself is in a great location within the building. We decided to spend 3+ months of our lives converting the flat into a 2 bed 2 bath unit and completely refurbishing the place. Only the doors, windows and walls remain from its prior existence. With an Irish wife, she now has a place back in her own country and this allows her to visit with her relatives and friends.
What makes this Apartment unique
In a word, Dublin. It is a compact city and almost everything we need to do, to buy and to see is within a 15 minute walk.
perfect location for our first short trip to Dublin. Easy to walk everywhere, restaurants and cafe's and shopping just outside the front door.
Amazing location and quaint apartment
My mother sister and I loved our stay. This apartment offered a great central location to everything in the city. It was a comftable apartment with all the luxuries of home. We felt safe wondering at night and loved the secure access to the building and apartment. We will defiantly book this property again for future trips.
Wonderful apartment in a fantastic location!
The property is very quiet and secure yet is located in the middle of everything making it easy to see the sites. Immaculately clean and comfortable and David responds quickly to emails. His instructions are clear and easy to follow making our stay seamless. As with previous comments-location, location and location and it doesn't get better than this. We highly recommend David's apartment as THE place to stay in Dublin!
Great location and property
Everything was as described and clean. We enjoyed our time in the property for our short stay. Building security was very good. The main picture is of the courtyard that cannot be seen from the road. The front entrance is a white building with a single door and a small black iron fence around the stoop.
Very comfortable, great location, and easy in/out
This location was in the perfect spot. Max 15 minute walk to everywhere we wanted to go. Trinity College, Dublin Castle, National Library of Ireland (to research family heritage), pubs with great music and food. Very comfortable 2 bedroom 2 bath flat. Felt like home.
Very convenient location in heart of city. Furnished simply but comfortably.
