With a wonderful view of Killiney Bay, the 1500 sq. ft.(140 sq. m.) apartment has been built to the very highest specification. From the wide balcony to the built in wine cooler, from the large comfortable bed rooms to the state-of-the-art kitchen, this apartment will be a perfect base for you in Dublin. It has direct access to Killiney beach (where the new-fangled idea of 'sea-bathing' became popular in the 18th century) and is immediately adjacent to the suburban rail (DART) station with frequent service into the center of Dublin (just 30 minutes away).
To visit the Book of Kells (in Trinity College) or absorb the atmosphere of a modern European capital just hop on the DART. For sightseeing in Dublin city you will probably not use a car but the apartment is also the perfect base for touring. The southern end of the ring road around Dublin (M50) is a short 5 minute drive. You will have no difficulty finding the routes to the South and West.
Wicklow - known as the 'garden of Ireland' - is on your doorstep. Glendalough is only a 40 minute drive away. Closer to home you might take the 5 minute walk up the hill behind you to see the 7th century ruins of the Church of the Daughters of Léinín (Cill Ínion Léinín - now in English: Killiney). Dalkey with its many restaurants and stores is one stop away on the DART. The town of Dun Laoghaire with its large harbour and four sailing clubs is only 10 minutes away on the DART line. Killiney Golf Club (9 holes) is close by. Killiney Hill Park, with amazing views over Dublin city and from where the mountain ranges of Wales are visible on a clear day, is a 5 minute drive.
Visitors traveling overnight from North America might note that many flights arrive in Europe in the early morning. Due to the need to facilitate departing guests and to clean the apartment, the apartment is usually available for occupation in mid-afternoon on the day of arrival, around 3.30pm.
Whether you are coming to Ireland to tour or to relax, whether your idea of a perfect Dublin evening will be centered on a play by Samuel Beckett or Sean O'Casey in the National (Abbey) Theatre in the city or on a convivial Dalkey pub like Finnegans, the apartment will suit you perfectly as a base.
