“Great appartment”
Reviewed 2 November 2012

Stayed here with friends so much more practical than a hotel. Appartment was clean and well maintained.
Kitchen was ok - no trays or bowls that could be used in the oven so unable to use. Other than that great being able to store drinks in the fridge, make a cuppa and make snacks.
Bedrooms small but great - for sleeping given that you have a living space
Appartments no in the city centre but public transport was close at hand and if you choose to walk takes 25-30 minutes to walk.
Would defiantly use again

Myself and friends booked an apartment for a rugby weekend in Dublin, and were given a 2 bedroom apartment on South Dock.

Clean, spacious, comfortable, everything you could wish for really, and a lot cheaper than a hotel of similar quality would have been too. Will definitely use again when in Dublin.

Excellent location, 15-20 minutes walk from the Aviva Stadium and Royal Dublin Showgrounds. Staff incredibly helpful when called upon.

Your Home Away from Home at South Dock exceeded expectations. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and extremely spacious including two bedrooms, two bathrooms (including toiletries), living room, full kitchen equipped with dishwasher, clothes washer, fridge, stove, kettle, cookware, dishes, and utensils. Only downside was that it was extra for internet and phone. Also, if you don't have a cell phone, it can be challenging to meet up to get the keys for the apartment. However, once that's all sorted out, everything just falls into place very nicely! I would certainly stay at this place again.

Stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment in late August, 2 adult couples and 2 kids. Much cheaper option than hotels for us, great location. The apartments are incredibly clean, simple but well appointed with the basics. Outstanding security. Easy access to the bus system and a reasonable walk for fit people to City Centre. Excellent location for Aviva Stadium The managers are gracious. They should provide better directions if driving there as we had a hard time finding it (Simply providing a GPS address would be helpful). The major downside was the charge for Wifi, and only one computer could be logged on at a time. We had to buy two internet packages at 39 Euro each for 4 days which we felt was a ripoff.

We had 3 nights at Railway Cottages on arriving in Dublin and then 1 night at South Dock before flying out the next day - both 2 bdrm apartments.
Railway Cottages - while clean & tidy with great space it was located right next to the railways lines and a little daunting having steel bars at the entrance. 5-10min walk to a few restaurants which was good.
South Dock - were a bit more comfortable in this apartment - once again clean and tidy, but simple.
Amenities supplied were very limited compared to other apartments we have stayed in recently - no washing up liquid available in either apartment.
Overall, no major issues but would certainly prefer to stay at South Dock rather than Railway Cottages.

I stayed with my husband and 2 daughters in the Baggot Rath House and it was a fantastic experience. As our flight from Washington, DC arrived so early in Dublin (5.20am!) we stayed for an early breakfast at the airport but soon caught a taxi to the Home from Home offices to be met by Kay who arrived early especially so we could be let into our rental property. Jet lagged and gloomy from the downpour of rain that greeted us we instantly cheered up when Kay let us into a lovely rental house in the back of the apartments. It was home - we had arrived and it lifted our spirits enormously. The place was spotless and my husband went off with the cab driver to get some groceries for our nice clean kitchen. The whole house was well furnished and there were two full baths and a downstairs toilet. Plenty for a family of 4 to feel comfortable. The area was quiet and a minutes walk to the Dart station on Landsdowne Road. We loved the peace and quiet and being able to relax as though at home. Highly recommended and excellent staff from Donal to Kay who greeted us - seemless and accomodating. You will love this place! Anne & Sas and family in DC.

Four of us - two couples - really enjoyed staying in a 1st Floor apartment. Very clean, well equipped and good location. Near enough to walk into the city and very close to Irish Ferries for our trip home. Would have loved an apartment overlooking the dock but they were probably occupied by residents. Highly recommended. Good value - especially booked and paid for in advance. One improvement would be free wi-fi! Like the rest of Ireland.
