I'm not sure why anyone would book this apartment expecting it to be a five-star hotel in the city center. You won't get that, but if you want to experience everyday Dublin and hang out with locals, this is a great place. The price is right and you're a short bus and/or cab ride from Trinity College, Grafton Street, etc., as well as next door to a welcoming pub with helpful bartenders. We're glad we stayed here. Pro tip: there are at least two Bridge Streets in town, so be sure to tell cab drivers you're on the Bridge Street in Ringsend directly across from St. Patrick's Church (not cathedral). It's bus stop 392.
Unfortunately, the « cozy and quaint » advertised was very old and not conducive to a comfortable stay in Dublin. The stairs and floors are very crooked and squeaky, both bedrooms are tiny with no room for luggage, the bathroom is too small and the noise from the street is constant, especially for the bedroom facing it. Although the owner was very nice, we cannot recommend this rental.
For our first trip in Dublin : this apartment is very nice and confortable. The street is calm. The owner are very nice ! I recommend this apartment !
As the apartment was double-booked, my family had to stay with the landlord's family. This is not what we had booked and it inconvenienced my family. We had booked this apartment for its convenient location in proximity to the city centre, a park and the Aviva Stadium. While the host friendly, the alternative accommodation was much further away. I trust this was a genuine one-off mistake but I would personally not book this apartment again on my next visit to Dublin.
