Overview

About the property

Apartment, 2 Beds (1 USA King) + Air Mattress, 2 Baths (Large USA size Shower)

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.

If you plan on renting a car to see the countryside (you do NOT want one in Dublin), please ask us for our recommendations. We do have parking in our building.

Please note that our pricing is in Euro. This listing may reflect prices in your 'local' currency or in US dollars. These numbers are approximate and will change as the exchange rate changes. Additionally, the extra charge for the 5th person is at 20 Euro per night from this website. We have a flat charge of 65 Euro for the 5th person, independent of the visit length.

Please note that our cancellation policy is NOT correctly indicated on this website. We refund all monies paid, on a per night basis, for the cancelled nights that we re-rent.

About The Owner

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.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2011

Why The 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.

Great location and property

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great Apt in Central Dublin

  • 5 of 5

This 2 bed, 2 bath apartment is perfectly located in central Dublin along the river Liffey. Everything from tour buses, shopping, restaurant, trams and historical sights are all but a few moments walk from your doorstep.

The apartment comes equipped with a full alley kitchen including washer and dryer units. The owners stock it with kitchenware, but you may need to bring your own spices, teas and other kitchen staples.

The master w/ ensuite bathroom has an American King and the guest bedroom has two twin bed which can be converted to a king for an extra €35. For an added bonus, the bedrooms come equipped with ceiling fans which is something you typically don't find in Ireland or the U.K.

The second bathroom is in the main hallway making it convenient to access. Plus, both bathrooms are clean and provide good water pressure.

The living area has a lovely view of the shared garden for the complex. And the fact the bedrooms face this garden makes for quiet evenings. The cable TV and internet access were stable and reliable. There's even a printer for those who bring laptops.

The building comes equipped with a lift (elevator) which my mother-in-law was pleased to see.

And last, but not least, David (owner) is very organized and communicative. He's created a book and website that explain every detail and answers every possible question you might have.

I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to others.

Great location, comfortable flat

  • 5 of 5

Comfortably slept 3 of us, with additional bed open. Nice living room with big TV. Clean place with good showers. Tremendous location -- strange that we're so close to O'Connell Street and the Liffey, but can't hear the noise. We'd like to stay there again on our next visit.
