I did not shy away from colour when I designed this place!! This eye-catching apartment is sure to get your travel partners talking. It's very centrally located in a modern, secure apartment building. It's overlooking the city's marina and dock, just 150m from the main square. It's right next door to one of the coolest cocktail joints. Parking for one car is included, as is high speed WiFi, a 49" smart TV w/85 channels, and a Sonos speaker. What more is there to say? Book now or miss out!
Located in a quiet multi-unit apartment block development, this newly renovated apartment sleeps 4 guests and boasts modern design, the best in entertainment equipment and comfy furnishings throughout. Just 150m from the heart of the city, the bold colours and striking art work are a feast for the eyes. So make sure you have an appetite for art and for funk!
The property has an open plan living/dining/kitchen with 2 bedrooms, one en-suite and a main bathroom. It sleeps 4 guests in total. (2 x 4ft6in beds) It is meticulously decorated for holiday accommodation, providing you all the amenities you'll need.
Lit by a large front facing window, the living area has a 3 seater leather sofa and 2 armchairs so everyone has a comfy seat from which to watch TV. Tune into one of over 80 digital TV channels. You can even login to your Netflix account through the smart TV! A Sonos speaker will let you play your favourite tunes through Spotify or directly from your laptop or tablet using the Sonos App.
Of course, there is high-speed Wi-Fi available throughout the property.
Breakfast is served! Why not make use of the stunning grey kitchen island to serve your travel partners a hearty breakfast before you go exploring the city and surrounding area. Drink your coffee on the balcony overlooking the city's marina and harbour.
The full service kitchen has an oven, induction hob, fridge, freezer, microwave, and dishwasher. Cutlery, crockery, and all cooking utensils are supplied.
The main bedroom has a 4ft6in bed frame with a striking petrol wall colour, large canvas artwork and vintage Playboy magazine adverts. An ensuite toilet and shower room provide privacy for the occupants of the main bedroom. Ample wardrobe space will hold all your clothing and the full length mirror will let you get ready before your big night out. Bedside tables, lamps, bedside sockets and an alarm clock all make things a little more homely too.
The 2nd bedroom, painted in a deep blue is similarly decorated with the same bedside amenities and access to the main bathroom which has a bath and shower options.
Basic toiletries, bathroom linen and bed linen are supplied for all guests.
Ireland's a rainy country, so we've provided umbrellas for your convenience. Need to do laundry? There's a great local laundrette just a few minutes walk away (details in your welcome pack)
Parking is included in your rental rate, so your car will only ever be a few steps from your front door. Not that you'll need it to get around the city. You're literally only a 2 minute walk from the city centre.
If you have special requests, we'd love to hear them. There's nothing like having everything come together perfectly on a trip away and we want your stay with us to be one to remember. If we can help, we will.
You have access to everything in the apartment, except our cleaning and supply closet, which is located beside the main bathroom door in the hallway.
There are elevators throughout the building that will help guests who have difficulty with stairs to avoid them.

I like to try and meet people when they arrive, but if that's not possible, I send clear and straight forward directions so you can let yourself in.
Our welcome pack contains all the information you'll need to enjoy your stay, including personal recommendations for restaurants, pubs, and attractions.
