HEART OF THE CITY ELEGANCE
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 -
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.

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 would add the Butler Chocolate Tour to the list as #21, but you may want to move it up in priority!!!

We're American - Irish, and have lived on both sides of the Atlantic for 24 years. Why stop now! Travel is in our blood and we love having Dublin as a base for jump offs to the South of France, England and wherever our heart takes us.

From the very moment I booked, owners Tom and Christine treated my husband and me like family. They were beyond welcoming and communicative, sending lots of greetings, instructions, and helpful information in advance of our stay. We knew where everything was in the apartment and how to use it. We learned about transportation, dining, and entertainment options before we even got there. Tom and Christine’s care and thoughtfulness took so many unknowns out of our travel experience and made it so much more enjoyable!
One we arrived at the apartment, caretakers Maura and Noel were always available to show us the details and answer any questions we had. They attended quickly to our every need and made sure we could simply enjoy our stay. We deeply appreciated Maura’s and Noel’s accessibility and friendliness at every step!
The apartment is decorated with red, black, and white colors and carefully chosen art. Mirrors grace many walls, and the living room and bedroom open onto lovely little balconies just right for enjoying a cup of tea or taking in some fresh air on a crisp morning. We especially loved the full kitchen and washing machine, amenities you simply can’t get with a hotel.
In short, this is the spot in Dublin for you! We hope to return to Tom and Christine’s Dublin Rose apartment again and again.
Comfortable and convenient.
We were very happy with our stay in this Dublin apartment. It’s small, but comfortable, and the location was great. We were away from the tourist center but walkable to everything with pubs and restaurants close by and a grocery across the street. The apartment is quiet, and the hosts have made sure you have everything you need. We recommend it for singles or couples who want to experience a Dublin beyond Temple Bar.
Very nice, cozy and clean apartment.
Easy access to all kind of transportation
Quiet location and comfiest bed!
This apartment is the perfect apartment for a couple. Very clean and well-equipped, and had the best bed I've ever slept on.
So glad you loved the bed. I spent a lot of time picking it out. And it's WIDER than an American Queen, which i find to be wonderful. Thanks again Cassie. I really appreciate it when guests mention these special features that we've put into the apartment. Hope to see you again.
All the best, Christine

This flat is in a wonderful location, away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to walk. Convenient to Grafton Street shopping, bus lines, train lines, restaurants, you name it.
The apartment itself is lovely. The decor is beautiful, and the space is very comfortable and welcoming. It is easy to feel right at home the minute you arrive.
Maura and Tom are wonderful and welcoming, and gave us many great recommendations and ideas for things to do and places to eat.
We would 100% recommend this apartment to our friends, family, anyone visiting Dublin!
Thank you for a wonderful week!
