About the property

2 large bedrooms, 1 Ensuite, Underground parking, Lift to Apt. Bus Route

Grove House is quiet and private and with the under ground parking access to the apartment is easy access and safe. The local shops include SPAR and 2 lovely coffee shops and a beauty salon. They are only 4 minutes walk away. The AVIVA Rugby stadium is 20 mins walk. RDS where the web summit is held is 15mins away. Superb Location. If you require buses they are straight outside the door and taxis are always available.

There are 2 bedrooms - on Master Ensuite and the other a large double room with the option of changing into a twin room.

The Bathrooms were redesigned with power showers - Beautifully designed and spacious.

The best feature is the large balcony overlooking the Dublin Mountains - Ideal for BBQs - the spacious living and dining room takes all its light from the large balcony doors -

The kitchen is relatively small but has all the mod cons of a modern kitchen and its bright with a large window overlooking the balcony - new oven - Nespresso coffee unlimited, every pot and pan that any good cook would require!

What makes this block of apartments stand out on there own is that there are only 10 properties per block - built in the 70's they are one of the largest apartments on the market so the interior space is generous and well designed.

About vonny kelly

We love to travel. We lived in Hong Kong, Australia, Dubai and the USA. We have now settled in Ireland in whats known as the Garden of Ireland! Our Apartment is in the Centre of the city and we often stay there when we visit Dublin as its so central to everywhere and it also gives us a chance to see if its got all the essentials travellers require when they come to visit. We have a dog and 2 kids, one studying in UCD and the other still at High School so live is busy. We love to play golf and walk the mountains with the dog. We live on Powerscourt Golf course which is well worth a visit if you are a golfer or its great for a walk too and It is right beside Powerscourt Gardens which have been voted the top Gardens in Europe to visit.

vonny kelly purchased this apartment in 2000

Why vonny kelly chose Dublin

Grove house is an owner occupied apartment block - each block has only 10 units so its quiet and peaceful with uninterrupted views of the Dublin Mountains. The large balcony makes it unique in Dublin and given its south facing you have the pleasure of the sun all day..Thats when it shines! Even though its meant to rain a lot in Ireland you always get a pocket in the day where its great for a walk or run!

What makes this apartment unique

The Area is safe and right beside a well equipped supermarket and one of the best lunch and brunch spots in Dublin, Wilde and Green. If you havent looked already have a wonder on this link which will show you fun things to do and visit while staying at Grove House.

Guestbook comments from the owner

review from guest

Hi Vonny,

I just wanted to say hello and to thank you for your kind review. I did

let Airbnb know that the site wouldn't let me rate you as a host, which

would be a 5 by the way. If they let me write a review and can post it,

I certainly will.

We so enjoyed our visit to Ireland - the land and the people are

absolutely beautiful and our lasting impression began with our wonderful

hostess!! Cork and Killarney were great and the Cliffs of Moher were

breathtaking. The weather got cold in Scotland but we had great hosts

there too and enjoyed our time. Amsterdam is very interesting but wasn't

that impressive to me except for all of the cultural attractions.

I hope to get back to Ireland someday - thank you so much for your

incredible attention and hospitality.

Take care,
May 2015

Great apartment in a nice clean, quiet building just outside Dublin.

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was as advertised - large, clean and quiet at night. Located a short distance from downtown - $10 cab ride, the apartment was perfect for relaxing in after a day of exploring in Dublin. Vonny was helpful in coordinating the stay and would highly recommend this for anyone wanting to visit Dublin.

Beautiful views, great location

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely made our stay! Very spacious,comfortable property so even with 5 people we never felt like we were on top of each other. Lovely views from the balcony and, despite being near a main road, very quiet and peaceful. Various bus and LUAS stops within short walking distance makes access to the city centre very easy, apartment has all mod-cons however so we actually stayed in two nights of our stay.

If available we'd also recommend availing yourself of the meet and greet service, provided by the very affable Paul, from the airport. His detailed tour through the city was great for getting our bearings but also very informative and an enjoyable start to our trip.

Finally, a massive thank you to the owner Vonny, who could not have been more helpful, and was in communication both before and during our stay in Dublin. Good luck on the links and best wishes for the future!

Beautiful property with wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

The owner was there on our arrival and made us feel very welcome with goodies in the fridge and a lovely bowl of Wicklow strawberries. The property was beautifully clean with very high standard linen etc. It was spacious with comfortable beds and sofas. It was smart and stylish but still felt homely.

We would happily recommend the property and also the Wilde and Green cafe down the road, the Botanic Gardens and the FitzGeralds pub and James Joyce museum in Sandycove.

Five Star Luxury accommodation

  • 5 of 5

My family spent a wonderful weekend at Vonny's beautiful apartment. From the moment you walk in you will be amazed at the spectacular views of the Wicklow mountains, as well as the brightness and elegance of the apartment's decor. The beds are super comfortable with fine quality sheets and pillows. The kitchen is well equipped and a joy to work in. The bathrooms are tastefully updated.

Vonny was extremely easy to communicate with and went out of her way to answer our questions and even arranged for a driver to pick up some members of our party at the airport. The location is central, easily accessible and close to excellent shops, bars and restaurants. It is the perfect place to stay when visiting Dublin. Cannot recommend this apartment highly enough!

The best of Dublin

  • 5 of 5

Myself and four friends found this apartment to be the perfect fit for our time in Dublin. The location was great with a lot of pubs and restaurants by car. The apartment itself was spacious and safe with no negative attributes. Vonny was very attentive and eager to insure we enjoyed our stay. Overall this was a great experience, I highly recommend it.

We stayed at Vonny's apartment for 3 weeks, two in Sept and one in October, we would have stayed longer had it been available. We can highly recommend this apartment to anyone planning a stay in Dublin. It is in a safe, secure area with easy access to the city via both bus and the Luas and it has underground parking for a car! The view from both, the well equipped, kitchen and the living room of the Dublin mountains is beautiful, especially in the evening and the early morning. We are both very fussy about the comfort of our bed; we were not disappointed in the least with the beds in this apartment. The larger bed, in particular, was the most comfortable bed I have slept in for years. The number of channels supplied on the cable TV was superb and we enjoyed the fact that we could record something of interest to watch later. We invited friends in for dinner more than once and the apartment lent itself very nicely to entertaining. A special thank you to Vonny and her husband Niall for a most warm welcome, the flowers and the wonderful breakfast food. We hope to see you both again!
