About the property

2 Bedroom 2 Bathroom Apartment in a secure, central location

Newly redecorated 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment in Adelaide Square. This is a luxurious, residential complex and is in a suberb, city centre location. It is located opposite the Radisson Blu hotel on Golden Lane and adjacent to South Great George's street. It is within walking distance of every major attraction in central Dublin, including St Stephens's Green (10 minutes), St Patrick's Cathedral (2 minutes), Trinity College (15 minutes) and Temple Bar (10 minutes). While very central, this apartment complex is located on a quiet street and guests enjoy a peaceful stay with no traffic or city noise. Adelaide Square is a gated complex with a security guard on duty 24 hours a day.

The apartment is on the ground floor (first floor for Americans!) with its own entrance and it opens directly onto the quiet, sunny, communal inner courtyard.

The apartment has a spacious living area with polished wooden floors. There are two spacious bedrooms, one with a Queen sized bed and one with twin beds. The bedrooms are located to the rear of the apartment with a dividing door to the kitchen and living areas. (Those with jet lag will not disturb those who are sleeping!). I can also supply a folding bed at an additional charge if there is a fifth guest. There are large fitted wardrobes in the bedrooms with lots of hangers and a hairdryer, a fully fitted kitchen with all appliances including hob, oven, fridge/freezer etc. Free WIFI is also available.

There are numerous restaurants nearby offering a huge variety of cuisines. You can choose the South Great George's Street/ Drury Street area or head towards the restaurants, bars and music venues of Wexford and Camden Streets. We are very close to a small Tesco Express grocery store (2 minutes walk) and the larger Dunnes Stores on South Great George's Street (10 minutes walk). I have lots of information in the apartment and maps etc. for visitors' convenience.

Check in is normally at 2 pm and check out is at 11 am. Visitors are very welcome to leave their bags any time after 11 am, pick up a key and stroll around while the apartment is being cleaned. If the apartment is free the night before an earlier check in can also be arranged.

I use the 'Book It' and 'Instant Book' facilities on the website but I would be delighted to respond to any questions/ queries you might have in advance of booking. I can also accept payment directly via PayPal or bank transfer. Just click the 'Email owner' button and I will respond very quickly!

About Fiona Kelly

My husband and I lived in this apartment for 5 years before we moved away for work and our first daughter was born while we were living here. It's in a fantastic location, but on a quiet street. We were very happy here as we could walk everywhere. The apartment is close to restaurants, bars, theatres and music venues and, as our needs changed with the arrival of our daughters, playgrounds and child-friendly museums and art galleries!

Fiona Kelly purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Fiona Kelly chose Wood Quay

This is a great location for any visitor to Dublin whether for business or pleasure. Very close to everything yet in a quiet location. Close also to bus routes, hop-on/hop off tours and Dublin's tram service the LUAS.

What makes this apartment unique

Adelaide Square is a unique residential development in Dublin city, the only one with 24 hour security on site. We also have parking if necessary for trips out of Dublin. It is very centrally located and you can walk everywhere from the apartment.

The Perfect Flat

  • 5 of 5

We spent six nights in Fiona's Dublin flat. It was exceptional on all levels, including location, convenience and cleanliness. Our let-in was flawless (as was check out). The size is perfect for four people. Two full baths (with good water pressure) are a great amenity. The beds were comfortable and there was abundant closet space. Appliances were easy to use and all worked well. Everything you need is within a short walk, including great restaurants (Camden Kitchen, Peploes, Balfes), groceries (Tesco or Dunnes), coffee shops (The Bald Barista), pubs (too many to list), the DART station (Pearse), and a taxi rank in front of the building. Many attractions are equally close, like Trinity College, St. Stephens Green, Dublin Castle, St. Patrick's Cathedral. The list goes on. We relied heavily on prior reviews of the flat, and they didn't disappoint. Fiona was a pleasure to deal with - helpful suggestions when asked and incredibly responsive, much better than prior third party brokered VRBO/Home Away flats. We'll definitely come back to Dublin and hopefully, Fiona's flat. Thanks for a memorable experience!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Nice quiet apartment in near center of town. The apartment complex is gated and secure. The kitchen had everything we needed. The market was easy walking distance. We could walk to North side in about 20 minutes. Our hostess was helpful. We would recommend and stay here again.

Perfect location for a long weekend in Dublin

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect apartment for a long weekend in Dublin. The location is ideal as all tourist hotspots are within walking distance but in a lovely gated, quiet area. Fiona is a brilliant host and was very welcoming showing us where things were and greeting us at her apartment.

She was extremely accommodating as we arrived early on Friday morning and needed to leave our suitcases for a few hours on the Monday.

The apartment is modern, clean and fully equipped with everything you need and more.

We could not recommend this place more. Great weekend. Thank you Fiona!

great apartment, quiet but very central

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here, spent four nights in February in Fiona's really comfortable flat. Everything is within walking distance, but the apartment itself was a quiet and well-stocked oasis. Fiona was incredibly responsive and helpful-actually found something we accidentally left behind within minutes of our leaving and phoned us in time for us to circle back in the taxi and retrieve the item. Very highly recommended!

Fantastic family accommodation

  • 5 of 5

I have nothing but rave reviews for this property. The apartment was perfectly located to attractions and immaculately clean: Fiona had everything we needed and more. The bedroom set up is perfect with a master bedroom and 2nd bedroom with twin beds. Perfect for a family of 4. If and when I return to Dublin I would most definitely stay here again.
