Nice apartment with easy access to tourist areas
We're a family of four and we stayed for two nights. It's a nice spacious one bedroom apartment with a sofa bed in the living area which suited us well. It's on the western edge of the tourist areas close to the Old Jameson distillery. It's a reasonable walk to see the sights but easier for little legs to take buses, trams or the round-town tourist bus which all stop very near by. There's a grocery store in the same complex so it's easy if you want to eat in and there's a good cafe nearby for breakfast (closed Sunday). If you've got kids, it's important to note that there isn't a TV and wi-fi wasn't yet available when we stayed.
The one main negative relates to the financial situation in Ireland. Like many areas in Dublin, particularly away from the centre, there are a lot of empty retail areas near the apartment and it feels desolate, particularly late at night. That said, the apartment is nicely decorated with 60's touches and coffee table books etc. The under-floor heating in the bathroom is really good and it's pleasant to stay in.
