“Beautiful Spot to Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We loved this place! It was beautifully decorated, well maintained, and had everything you might need (laundry etc). There was a grocery store and restaurants nearby (15 minutes walk), and it was a quick 45 minute walk to Trinity College (buses were also available, but we had nice weather). The landlord was very kind and organized our pickup and drop off from the airport with a very reliable taxi service. We definitely recommend this flat to anyone visiting Dublin.

“Terrible communication - could not enter property”

Arranged with Billy to be picked up at Dublin Airport at 9:30 am to go to property. Night before, weather delayed my flight. As soon as I had new flight plans, I emailed Mr. Mundow of the change. (I did not call at this time as it was approx 1 am in Ireland). No response. At my layover in the morning, emailed and called. No response. Arrived in Dublin approx 1:30 pm. Called and emailed again. No response. Went through customs, called and emailed again. No response. Waited at airport for approx 1 more hour. Called and emailed again. No answer. Took a taxi on my own to property. No one there, locked. Emailed again. At this time, was approx 5 pm so I arranged for my own hotel that night. Mr. Mundow emailed later that evening asking when I would be arriving and to call him. I did. Guess what? No answer. Requested and was denied a refund for my stay. Horrible.

Management Response
29 Jul 2013
The guest indicated that she would be travelling to Dublin from New York on 26th June on flight KL6192, arriving at 9.30 am. A taxi driver waited for one hour to greet her and take her to the property. She did not arrive on the flight indicated. The housekeeper waited at the property for two hours. I received a mail later that night that the guest had travelled from Paris rather than New York. I did not receive any phone call or text message at any stage although i confirmed contact numbers on receipt of her mail and i urged her to call. All communication was by email. I offered to meet the guest at the property, however late, but she declined. I also offered her an extra night's stay at no extra cost which was also declined. A refund was refused as cancellation was unreasonably late and access remained possible during the day and the following three days.

“A seemingly remote cottage, 20 minutes walk from central Dublin”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2012 for a stay in October 2012

person found this review helpful

If you take the ferry into Dublin from the UK, you can actually see the cottage from the top deck as the ferry pulls alongside Dublin terminal. The coastguard station is unassuming from the outside in a no-nonsense Liffey-side neighborhood with a massive park at its heart. You may not be be able to stumble downstairs into a raucous pub, but you will enjoy your daily walk through this park even more: the shouting excitement of pickup soccer and football games, the neighborhood kids conspiring an evening of mischief, the moms pushing their prams and gossiping. If you want to go to Dublin and stay in an Irish neighborhood that is safe, close-knit and proximate to city-center, then this is perfect for you.

The cottage is itself beautifully decorated, stacked ceiling-high with books, and painted a dark blue inside, which makes the art on the walls pop out. The overstuffed couch sucks you into nights of wine, conversation and reading in front of glowing embers. The walls are thick as bedrock so you don't need to worry about hearing neighbors, hearing noise from the port, or disturbing anyone if you are having fun yourself. It's so quiet you think you're in the countryside and so welcoming you think you're home.

Further, Billy is a genial host, even providing a quick driving tour of the neighborhood and all sorts of tips on local fare and transit. Ask him to show you "the walk" and you'll discover a local hike that most locals don't even know about.

“on the small side”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Great little property would suit a couple or plus 1 quiet location fair walking distance from public transport links. The public transport is great into Dublin. Owner very helpful and very accommodating. If you have a car it is a great base for exploring.

Billy did a great job setting up taxis and property management help even before we arrived in Ireland, once we arrived he did a great job getting us sorted with orientation to the neighborhood, activities, transportation, etc. Ringsend and Sandymount are wonderful neighborhoods with great restaurants and a lovely walk along the South Wall, and easy access to all parts of the city.

“Delightful Dublin get away - full of charm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2011 for a stay in September 2011

people found this review helpful

We needed a rental house for a weekend break and found this house on Trip Adviser. I fell in love with the place immediately from the photos and the reality of the house did not disappoint either.

The Coastguard Station Cottage has been faithfully restored with care and detail and the art work within the house is eclectic and a perfect compliment to it's surroundings. There is everything you would possibly want from a rental property.

Situated within easy access to Dublin City Centre with easy access routes via the Luas or the bus, it was the ideal location to return after a heavy day of sightseeing/shopping/galleries/eating and drinking (and the open fire was a welcome sight too).

The helpfulness of everyone you meet (including the owner) will make you feel more than at home during your stay.
