Dartry Road Apartment 4.
Spacious apartment in a beautiful period house, but in dire need of some TLC. The pictures embody a grand period apartment fit for a king, but the reality is the apartment is very tired. There was some disappointment when it came to the kitchen facilities as there was no waste bin, one tea towel, minimal utensils, no hand dishwashing facilities (although there was a dishwasher), a refrigerator door precariously hanging on with one broken hinge and which freezes the food. There was no toilet seat. The bed was comfortable, the shower was very good and there is hot water on tap 24/7.
A couple of points worth mentioning for potential visitors - I knew there was no WiFi, but the telephone data connection was also very poor. If you need a good data connection, you need to go to Rathmines. Parking is payable 07:00hrs till 24:00hrs, but there is free parking 5 minutes round the corner adjacent to the park and a local gym.
