Excellent location. Whilst there is a lot of noise and activity in the local area it did not inconvenience us because the bedroom is at the rear of the apartment. Dee is a very responsive and helpful hostess.

The location really is the best, can get to everywhere you need to and cabs, buses, bicycles right outside (literally) warm, cosy and comfortable and pretty much everything provided for you. Loved this place and will be back! We arrived at the flat at 1am and Dee was very responsive when we had a slight issue getting in. Top place and hosts, 10/10

A lovely fresh and modern apartment directly opposite the Castle Gates, A fantastic location for wandering and exploring. The airport bus 747 stopped yards away from the door. It is on the Main Street so plenty of evening hustle and bustle but this didn't cause any disruption to sleep as the bedroom is at the back. Thank you for the thoughtful welcome touches, They were very much appreciated after airport delays. We would just like to mention, we took Dee's advice and sought out some historic and very beautiful pubs and restaurants including the new superb Italian restaurant Forno directly under the apartment. Thank you as it totally enriched out stay.

We had a lovely stay in this air bnb, the apartment is very well kept and clean. The bed is very comfy and it is in a great location - walking distance from all attractions. Our host was very helpful ! Would definitely recommend!

Dee is a thoughtful and attentive host. Communications were very easy and responses swift. Especially while we were actually there. The location is perfect. Most of Dublin centre is in an easy walk with the Olympia next door (we were in town for a show). The nightlife is all around so do expect some street noise into the early morning at weekends (but the bedroom is not on the front and fresh ear plugs are supplied). The bed is not the best I have slept in but the sofa is deceptively comfy. This is a great place for a city centre visit. It is close to the 574 Air Link (not Aircoach though which comes with DublinPass). The property is small as expected. This is only noticeable though in the bedroom/en suite which is pretty tight. No window in the bedroom, which although odd actually makes for a quieter, darker room when asleep. Towels are small, heating is good, coffee maker excellent (also grinds the beans). The place is cosy but not quite as nice as the photo. I would stay again if I ever need to be at the heart of Dublin. (Note: In May 17 there are works in the restaurant below but this was actually relatively little disturbance because they don't work weekends. The entrance should feel a lot better when the works are complete).

Response from Sadia & Dee:
Thank you Simon for your review, I am happy to hear the works did not disturb you downstairs during May 17. I did make sure to inform all guests before arrival but this was out of my control. Thankfully this is not continuous. All points taken well and thank you for all feedback. Looking forward to your return. Warmest regards Dee & Family

We are Mother & Daughter Sadia & Dee together we enjoy yoga, sport, interior design & history. We love to travel and open our eyes to new cultures, cuisines and languages for the very first time.

Travelling as often as we do over the years, We have personally experienced some great and some not so great levels of customer service, cleanliness & support. This has helped us set our bar high for guests who wish to stay in our apartment. We love to make guests feel right at home and experience the wonders of Dublin City like a true Dubliner!

We have a "Grá" (love) for our City and only want the best experiences for our guests to take home with them. Having grown up in Dublin all our lives and enjoy sharing its unique history, where to go, what to do/avoid with guests. We have selected the absolute best locations for you and feel privileged to be a Super Host for our super City!
