We loved our stay in this converted flat! It was perfectly situated and had everything we needed. It was a 10-15 minute walk to most major sights, but also had access to various buses. It was truly an original space and made our trip extra special. We didn't get to meet Sarah (she was on holiday during our stay); regardless, we were warmly welcomed by Mark. He was great in helping us get settled and provided us with tips to help make our stay more comfortable. Both Sarah and Mark were prompt in their communication. We recommend this flat to anyone seeking a unique accommodation during their visit to Dublin.

This was my family's first Airbnb stay and we are very happy about it. The main advantage is that we lived for a week in a house that was equipped differently than a hotel room would have. Mainly, we had a small and nice kitchen, so we didn't rely only on eating out. We also specifically really liked our location, and obviously spent most of the time outside our apt. The apt. is located within a renovated church, which also added a nice aesthetic touch. Sarah was both very nice and very efficient and helpful. She isn't the apartment's owner, but operator or something like that, which I didn't realize initially (as I said, this was our first Airbnb). I would have loved to meet the owner personally (but she lives outside the country).

The apartment is in a very good location relatively close to all the action in the city centre. It has all the necessary facilities in a novel building, we would certainly recommend it to other travellers.

If I'd created the flat myself, brought my books, my music, my love of quiet and comfort and neighborhood, this would have been it. The Grand Canal, the neighborhood and the walking I could do from here. I want to live in Dublin now--and this flat I wish I could call "home". My only concern was departure and my sorrow at having to leave.

Sarah met us promptly at the accommodation and was very helpful in showing us around the flat and offering advice regarding local services. When there was a problem with a water leak, she responded quickly and a plumber was around within 24 hours- great service! Everything was very easy thanks to Sarah.

I've rented the apartment to work in Dublin waiting to find my own one. Apartment is close enough too the city center, well served by public transport and close to Dublin bike stations. You can find minimarkets and laundry at less than 200 meters. Sarah is very nice and helpful.

I love to travel and I love to stay in really nice and different place - that's why I think AIRBNB is such a good idea. You get to experience things and places that you might not normally get the chance to.
I live in the City Center so I can give you advice on where to go and what to eat. My second passion, next to my gorgeous Chocolate Labrador, is food, growing, picking, foraging, buying, cooking and eating food...
I have looked after a number of Period Flats in Dublin City Center for a number of years now, so I know what is needed to make your stay comfortable and stress free.
