City Center Decorator Elegance With Balcony in the Heart of the City - WIFI and Smart TV – WALK TO TRINITY AND ALL SITES

We’ve named our apartment The Dublin Rose because of it’s bright décor and charm in the heart of Dublin.

It was restored this year and sleeps 4 comfortably plus a child, ideally situated in Dublin 2, considered to be the gentrified side of town ... within 3 city blocks of Trinity College and close to Grafton Street shopping, Temple Bar, Dublin Castle and all attractions the of Dublin.

This apartment has been fondly renovated to a high standard with an all tile bathroom, and all new decorator furnishings to provide a luxurious stay. The living room and bedroom are filled with light every mornings through the floor to ceiling French Doors that lead to the balcony. This is an elegant, quiet apartment giving you every comfort to enjoy.

PERFECT LOCATION -

Located in the convenient and beautiful Georgian area of the city, you have wonderful pubs, restaurants, Trinity College and the Book of Kells, museums, parks and even the Dublin Castle on your door step.

It’s ideally situated with all the conveniences and attractions of the city, yet on a quiet lane with no noise to disturb your peace! Turn right out of the lane, and walk to shops and restaurants and attractions, turn left and stroll or jog along the tree lined canal, visit pubs and more restaurants. There's even a weekly village market, tucked into the banks of the canal, where you can buy local specialties. It's truly beautiful with it's ever changing foliage.

If walking is an issue, or you just want to rest your feet, you can hop on a number 4 or 7 bus at the corner, and be at Trinity College in 3 minutes, or Merrion Square in 2 minutes with it’s lunchtime markets, weekend art displays, and tour busses. The same bus will take you to O’Connell Street where you can also shop ‘til you drop on Henry Street, or walk from the apartment. You can also catch the Luas Tram there to outlying Museums or the Heuston Rail Station for trips around Ireland.

PUBS, RESTAURANTS AND EATING IN -

There are great restaurants and pubs around the apartment that we can highly recommend. Our ‘local’ pub - the Schoolhouse pub - is just 3 minutes walk and boasts traditional Irish music several nights a week for your entertainment and makes a great night out. Oil Can Harry’s is among others just across Mount Street and has the friendliest pub owners you’ll want to meet with activities as well. You’ll be spoiled for choice!

There is a Spar market conveniently located on the corner so you will never run out of essentials. You’ll have pots and pans and china in the kitchen, and all linens and towels freshly laundered for your use.

QUIET, QUAINT & CONVENIENT -

The apartment is on a quiet Lane, just off Mount Street. In the main bedroom there is a European Size King Bed for 2, and in the living room there is a VERY COMFY sofa bed with a 6’ Mattress that makes a full double bed. All linens and the guest duvet are conveniently stored under the sofa bed. There is also a facility for a 5th guest.

You’ll have a fully equipped kitchen and dining area, a fridge with a large freezer, microwave, dishwasher and washer/dryer so that anyone considering an extended stay can enjoy all the comforts of home. The fully tiled bathroom is spacious and modern and boasts an extra long tub/shower.

If you are considering exploring the country further afield, you can rent a car close by or hop on the DART at the Grand Canal stop close by, or connect to Heuston Station or Connelly Station.

Many visitors want to experience the famous Guinness Storehouse or the Jameson Distillery. They run tours regularly. Others love the Temple bar area for music and entertainment, or Kilmainham Gaol, Ryan's Victorian Pub, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and the Irish Museum of Modern Art, are wonderful and popular attractions too. (See our full list of the 20 most popular sites below, plus a few of our own!)

AIRPORT PICKUP OPTION / EARLY CHECK-IN -

Our Caretaker Pat can pick you up and deliver you straight to the apartment. Pay him as you would pay any taxi. He’ll be at your disposal for touring or assistance throughout your stay! Early check in can be accommodated if the apartment is available.

We'll try to do all we can to make your stay enjoyable. We’re world travelers ourselves, and know how nice it is to have friendly, helpful landlords, even on short term stays. We’ve made the apartment nice for ourselves and our guests, and hope you will enjoy every minute of it. We look forward to receiving your enquiry. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION...

SAFE in the HEART OF THE CITY

Our recent visitors suggested that we stress how nice it is to stroll or jog along the banks of the tree lined canal. It's truly beautiful with it's ever changing foliage. There's even a weekly village market where you can buy lunch and local specialties. The Lamb Pita is exceptional.

5 EXTRA BENEFITS OUR GUESTS ENJOY!!! -

1. Location - heart of gorgeous Dublin - walk to all major sites, restaurants galore, and shop 'til you drop. Or to go further afield, hop on the bus or DART to Connelly Station to see the countryside. The airport Bus is practically at your doorstep.

2. Balcony, 5th floor with elevator. The sun and light pours in through the French Doors with floor to ceiling windows. Airy and marvelous. Few apartments can offer this feature of warmth and charm!

WHAT WE LIKE MOST ABOUT OUR DUBLIN HOME -

We fell in love with this property because if it's Location and Charm.

Not noisy, yet in the heart of everything, with everything walkable. We especially love the BALCONY - so unusual in the city! French Doors lead from both the Bedroom and Living Room to the Balcony. You can relax there over your breakfast table and drinks in the evening. Light pours into the bedroom and living room. No one can peer in your window!

WHAT VISITORS COMMENT ON ...

1. Here's what one of the previous visitors wrote to say. 'The apartment was lovely! Great location. We enjoyed the easy walk to Trinity and all the sites, plus 2 pubs called the Gasworks and Oil Can Harry's. Pat the Caretaker was great, very helpful. We'll definitely come again!'

2. Another visitor suggested we emphasize that our location in the city is really walking distance to everything. Other apartments she looked at advertised themselves to be '10 minutes' from the heart of the city, but they were actually a 10 minute drive, or 10 minute bus ride, whereas ours is actually walking distance to Trinity, Grafton Street shopping, St Stephen's Green, Temple Bar, Merrion Square and pulse of the city.

WHAT TO DO AND SEE NEARBY:

Enjoy an easy stroll around St Stephen's Green or Trinity College from the apartment. Stop at one of the Butler's Chocolate Shops for coffee or tea, where they give you a complimentary chocolate of your choice. We love the 'double chocolate truffle.' Ask for their Loyalty Card, and have it punched everytime you go. Before your trip is over, you are bound to qualify for coffee on the house!

Then perhaps explore the St Stephen's Green Shopping Centre on 3 levels under glass - really gorgeous. Or enjoy one of the many museums.

Move on to Graffton Street - the inviting pedestrian shopping street - complete with busters playing music in the background.

Stroll a couple of blocks east from there to see the Parliament Building and it's architecture - especially pretty at dusk when it's lit. Stop at Buswell's Hotel for a roast lunch, afternoon tea or a drink in the evening!

Or head north a couple of blocks to hear Irish music in the famed Temple Bar area, and then west to Dublin Castle.

Or cross over one of the Liffey River Bridges, such as the Haypenny, to the famed O'Connell Street, Abbey Theatre, Customs House and the spectacular Convention Centre along the River Liffey, or take a boat ride on the Liffey!

Then return home, to your home-away-from-home, for a comfortable night's rest and gear up for tomorrow!

Or whittle the evening away at the Schoolhouse Pub and Restaurant - or any of the other pubs near the apartment - and soak up the Irish charm!!!

Here are the 20 most popular visitor sites, most of which you can walk to from the apartment. We've added the Butler Chocolate Tour to the list as #21, but you may want to move it up in priority!!!

Why Christine chose Dublin

We fell in love with this property because if it's Location and Charm.

Not noisy, yet in the heart of everything, with everything walkable. The Airport Bus is practically outside the door, as well as busses to everywhere and the DART connection to Connolly Station for the further explorations!

We especially love the BALCONY - so unusual in the city! French Doors lead from both the Bedroom and Living Room to the Balcony. We relax there over our breakfast table and drinks in the evening. Light pours in. No one can peer in our window.

Delightful apartment in wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was grand, as the Irish say. It's sunny (at least, when there's sunshine!) and in a great location. 15 minute walk to Trinity College, 10 minutes to museums, Leinster House, Sweny's pharmacy; 5 minutes to Merrion Square. One minute walk to the canal, which is great for jogging or just strolling. Apartment is not huge but it has everything you need. I felt safe, even at night and there's a grocery store just across the street. Also, owner and caretaker seemed to go out of their way to try to help me have a great stay. Highly recommended.

On the outer edge of the inner city

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment in the perfect location. The accommodations were as expected. No need for a car as public transport is very near or taxi's are fairly inexpensive. The apartment is inviting and comfortable. Instruction for staying or operating appliances is spot on and cover every question we had.

Loved this sweet little apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at The Dublin Rose! Great location and everything was within walking distance. Everything we needed was there. We would definitely stay here again if we are lucky enough to make our way to Ireland again.

Quiet and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

There is not much more that I can say from what others before us have written, the location is very quiet, we always felt very safe walking back late in the evening, the locals are friendly and willing to assist you, everything is close as stated in previous posts.

Maura was at the unit to meet us and go over the basic things and everything else was explained in writing as how things worked (TV, washer/dryer, hot water etc...).

There was a lot of useful information left at the condo like restaurants and grocery, but something we found useful was the Dublin Bikes (http://www.dublinbikes.ie) in front of SPAR it's an inexpensive way to get around, at 5 Euros for 3 days of pickup/drop-off bicycles at several locations through out Dublin it will get you to various sites fast if you get tired of walking or want to explore further than the typical tourist areas.

So if you want a quiet comfortable place to stay a short distance from all the tourist attractions with out the crowds than this would is a great place to stay.

Great Location - Nice Stay!

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is located near almost everything! If not, a short walk to many city transportation options, such as LUAS, Hop On-Hop Off & city buses. Neighborhood is friendly & quiet with local grocery stores & pubs (we enjoyed Oil Can Harry's). We used Air Coach for transportation to/from airport which was super easy & cheap. Drops you off 1 block from apartment. Maura & Tom were both there for all our questions & recommendations. Lovely stay...highly recommend!

Lovely, quiet, close to city centre

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is cozy and well situated for those looking to stay just outside of the city centre. It is a fairly close walk to most things but depending on your needs you may elect to stay somewhere a bit more central. We like to step outside and find everything we need in very close proximity. We visited during the holidays and the area was very, very quiet which was nice but could be a bit unnerving when walking home late at night. Pat assures us that this was just because so many were on holiday when we were there as it is normally a much more populated area. If you are looking for quiet, it is perfect.

The apartment is very clean, very secure and is very well equipped. There is a dishwasher, microwave, washer/dryer and anything else you could need. Note that you need to bring things like toilet paper, paper towels and dish soap as there was little or none at the apartment. This was probably noted in the very helpful guide that is sent to everyone upon booking! It is well worth printing out as it did come in handy several times. For example, I like to shower at night but could not get the water hot. The reason for this was outlined in the notes! (heater can be put on 2 hours ahead, or just shower in the morning instead!)

My mom and I found the apartment very comfortable. I intended to sleep on the couch but we ended up bunking together in the bedroom and had plenty of space.

Finally I cannot say enough good things about Pat. He picked us up at the airport and waited when our flight was late. (Twice! We returned to Dublin at the end of our travels.) He knows everything about Dublin and was so helpful and kind. You should definitely hire him to come and get you, he will help you get oriented when you arrive and tell you how to get anywhere you would like to go. We arrived early and he accommodated us leaving our luggage at the apartment early.

Have an amazing time in Dublin! It's a great place to visit and I regret that we had only a few days to experience it.
