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.

Why Owner chose Grand Canal Dock
This is an attractive, modern (2006) flat in a well maintained building. It is also on the south side of the river. We will spend time here enjoying the city and provide visitors with a great location to see Dublin when we are not 'in town'.
What makes this Apartment unique
A 20 minute walk will take you to all of the tourist attractions in central Dublin. NOTE, we are NOT in the "Grand Canal Dock" area as this website indicates.

Great location in the heart of Dublin
Four of us stayed in this clean, well kept flat. Compact 2 BR, 2 bath with kitchen, eating area, and small balcony on second floor. Walking distance to most central sites in Dublin. Next to light rail, but trains are infrequent at night, so did not disturb sleep. Quiet side street. Nearby stop for hop on, hop off bus.
Very nice, in easy walking distance to city center and had plenty of room for 4 adults.
We enjoyed our stay in this flat. We walked everywhere around Dublin easily. We appreciated having 2 large bathrooms and bedrooms for 4 adults and the laundry room meant we didn't need to pack as much-huge bonus!
Great stay in Dublin
Lovely home and perfect location. Had a fantastic stay and would gladly return. Cheers.
Great stay in Dublin, Ireland
The flat was perfect for our stay and so close to everything that we wanted to see in Dublin. Also, the day tour meeting spots were all within short walking distance.
If you are planning a short vacation with a lot of activities then the flat will be perfect for you needs.
Would stay there again in the future if available.
On vacation with my wife in Dublin for a week (our first time). We prefer private homes and B&B’s over hotels and learned of this property thru on line reviews. Bottom line, a perfect place for us. Once we committed the owner (David) was responsive, pleasant and informative and helped make the booking process easy and our arrival simple. He has a website for the rental that explains just about anything you would want to ask or need to know about the unit and the surrounding area. We also found the cost to be very attractive (we priced hotels in the area and we got much more space for much less money).
The property is quite spacious for two adults – 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths, a modern kitchen and a nice sitting area. Plenty of space to be comfortable in the suite (not that we spent much time there!). It’s in a nice, quiet location. There is a train station nearby if that is your chosen method of transport (the train tracks go right by the unit but I never heard them so noise was never an issue). The property is close enough to the Temple Bar area and River Liffey / O'Connell St. to walk to but far enough away to not have the crowds or noise (about a ¾ mile walk).
We only had two minor “issues”. Neither bathroom has outlets (my wife had to take care of her hair using a bedroom outlet and mirror), though we had the same experience in a 5-star hotel in London (where we visited before Dublin) so this may be common in the UK / Ireland (???). Also, the unit only has one TV (in the sitting room, i.e., none in the bedrooms). As noted, very minor things. All in all I give this place (and its owner) very high marks and if we ever return to Dublin we would look to rent here again, without hesitation!
We loved Dublin and our stay was very pleasant.The appartment is centrally located so we could walk to most sites.
The appartment is very comfortable and the owner very efficient.
Ideal location to see all of the attractions of Central Dublin by walking.
