About the property

Modern 2 Bed, 2 Bath Central Dublin Flat near Trinity College

We live in Florida, this is our second Dublin home. We visit it every year. It is a modern flat (built in 2006) in a very well maintained building. We are 2 blocks from the entrance to Trinity College and you can walk to every major attraction in central Dublin from our flat. The building is located on a side street between Pearse Street and Townsend Street and boasts a roof garden which has views over the rooftops of much of Dublin.

You enter into a marbled floor 'T' shaped entrance way which, with its 2.6 metre (8.5 feet) ceilings, feels very spacious. All rooms are accessed via this entryway. There are 2 good size bedrooms. The master bedroom has an extremely comfortable USA king size bed with ample wardrobe and drawer space. It also has its own patio. The master bathroom (en suite) is quite large with a shower, toilet and wash basin. The second bedroom (quite large for a European second bedroom) has two large very comfortable single beds and ample wardrobe space. Upon request, these beds can be locked together and, with a topper, provide a second USA king size bed. The bedroom has access to a second patio. The second bathroom has a bathtub/shower combination and is also quite spacious. The living room has a 32” LED flat screen TV, a Blu-ray DVD player and a stereo system. A comfortable sofa and an additional chair provides seating for 4 people. There is access to the second patio. The dining area, with its leather chairs, accommodates 5 people. The kitchen is fully equipped to serve 6 people. It is a 'Bosch' kitchen with an electric oven, stove top and microwave oven. There is a powerful extraction fan over the stove top. The large frost free refrigerator and the dishwasher are 'built in'. There is a separate laundry room with a Miele washer and dryer.

There is free, high speed internet service for your ipads and laptops. SKY satellite TV delivers over 100 channels, several of which are international. The phone service offers free calling to landlines in Ireland and inexpensive calls to overseas countries.

The 'fifth' person is accommodated via an air mattress in the living room.

The flat is located on the first floor (second by North American definition) of the building. There is a lift (elevator). An intercom service from the flat to the front door allows for remote door opening.

The Luas (tram) service (both the 'red' and the 'green' lines) are a 10 minute walk from the flat. The Dart train station is 2 minutes away. There are several pubs and restaurants within a 2 block walk of the flat and many more within a 4 block walk. Trinity College (home of the book of Kells) and Temple Bar (pubs) are a 5 minute walk. Grafton Street (shopping) and St Stephen's Green are a 10 minute walk. A 15 - 20 minute walk will get you to the Dublin Castle, St Patrick's Cathedral, Christchurch Cathedral and the GPO building (famous for the 1916 rising). The Garden of Remembrance and the Guinness Factory are a 30 - 35 minutes walk.

Within the flat building (on the ground floor) are several shops and offices, including a small supermarket which is open until 19:00. There is a large Tesco supermarket in Temple Bar - 4 blocks away.

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 also have a parking space in the basement, available at an extra charge, should you bring your car into the city.

There is a 65 Euro charge per visit for the 5th person (or for use of the air mattress).

Wonderful place to stay - close proximity to everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

This is a clean and modern apartment with very comfortable beds. It works exceptionally well for 4 people since it offers each their own bathroom and balcony. The location is great, everything you want to explore is a relatively short walk away. The train station is close as well. We took the train to Howth (30 minute ride) and enjoyed a day at the Sea shore. Lovely lunch at the Octopusy Restaurant - great food and a very nice view. I highly recommend this apartment, it's so much more comfortable and roomy than a hotel and nearly the same cost. Hope to have the opportunity to stay here again. We LOVE Ireland :-)

Great Apartment in the heart of Dublin!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four stayed at this very comfortable and contemporary flat which is in the heart of Dublin. This was our first trip to this wonderful city. The apartment is very well furnished, has everything you need for your stay and had very comfortable beds. It is in a great location and was within walking distance to all the main attractions in Dublin. There are great pubs in the neighborhood and restaurants, which makes it a very attractive place to stay. The owner was also very responsive and available if needed.

I highly recommend this apartment which can easily accommodate a party of four.

We would definitely stay here again.

Dublin Delight

  • 5 of 5

David makes the stay very easy with all of his tips and information/introductions. He is quick to communicate and quite helpful in making the stay as easy as possible. His 'big blue book' in the flat answered all of the questions we could possibly have had about transportation, shopping, dining, working the appliances, etc. The tips from previous visitors was helpful as well. We always try to be gracious visitors and keep everything tidy and even give the housekeeping staff a hand with starting laundry, dishwasher, etc. before our leave. The location is wonderful on the south side, with lots of shopping, Trinity College literally around the corner, plenty of dining options, entertainment, etc. The flat has all of the amenities of home...everything works, and nothing is broken. Appliances and furnishings are quite nice and kept in top shape. Maria, the housekeeper, is quick to make everything right, and although we had no requests, previous visitors complained about not enough glasses and towels, and the poor thing was running back and forth between jobs to ensure that we had all that we needed. Although we did not use it, the underground parking seemed very convenient. Building is quite safe, and elevator roomy enough for luggage and travelers. When we first came in we noted the Irish Rail is right outside of the flat's windows and we thought we would never sleep, however it never bothered us and we actually enjoyed watching the passengers go past.

Great stay. Easy walk to everything. Flat is well appointed. Right next to commuter rail, but the trains stop after about nine or 10 in the evening.
