Long Weekend in Dublin
Submitted: November 19, 2012
Stayed: September 2012
We thought the place was wonderful even if we only gave it 3 stars, more on that later. Location is centeral to Dublin but does require a good amount of walking. However Dublin is an easy city to walk. Clost to Christ's Church. Neighborhod at night can feel a bit unsafe but to be honest we NEVER had any issues so that may be unfair. Not a lot of eating or shoping near by but again, walking in Dublin is so easy. Do not bring a car as parking would be a nightmare anyway.
As for the house, it really is nice and beautiful, but only thing keeping it from a a 4 star (location keeping it from 5) is the fact that it just needed better up keep. The house need a good dusting and overall cleaning could have been much better. Items like chairs broken and such just needed attention. However none of this took away from the stay. We did enjoy it .
Owner's Response: Dear Chris, thank you for your feedback, I really appreciate people taking time to write. I would like to address a few issues for future tenants. The area our house is in is very safe, but as it is a city centre location, it sometimes lacks the glamour of a seaside resort from which you would need taxis or public transport to restaurants and shops. We are very fortunate that we are one of two houses on the homeaway website that are truly walking distance from the city centre (less than 15 minutes).
Since your stay, we have changed the cleaning lady as we felt she was not up to scratch, so I do take on board your comment. As for broken chairs, that is my fault. I choose pretty chairs for the house, but in hindsight a sturdier chair would have been a better option. So, I am off to rectify the situation and purchase new chairs. I am glad your enjoyed your stay in Dublin, I think it is a wonderful city, full of old world charm. Kind regards, Trisha.
