Alright, first off, let me fill you in on the apartment owner. From the first time you start booking, you will be treated with respect and graciousness from a wonderful gentleman who will have your absolute best interests at heart, with a wonderful sense of humor and honest responses to your questions. Also, he's quick. You won't be twiddling your thumbs wondering if you're going to lose out. He will respond with respect and human decency in a very timelt manner. By the third email my husband and I felt we were talking to an old friend, a true gentleman. We felt so comfortable about our decision to rent from Mr. Pat, and we're never disappointed. He is truly a solar and a gentleman as my husband says, and a great joy to work with.
Let's talk about our arrival now. Oh lord. Planes are hard this old body. We landed and called Pat who met us in front of the apartment. We were pleasantly surprised by his kindness, and his extremely thorough explanation of the apartment, and let me tell you, he is funny! He will spend as much time as you need helping you with anything you ask about, all the while not rushing to leave you. The apartment was clean and we'll kept up (really seriously previous reviewer, no clue what you were talking about) and so comfortable. You will be WELL INFORMED on how to work things (like the water heater, seriously previous 2 star reviewer, it's just TWO CLICKS on an accessible knob, which I spent like 1 minute of my whole two week stay there doing!) And he is available if anything happens. Like when I forgot how to work the oven. My bad. Tee hee. Also we had a huge party with us. Mr. Griffin was generous and brought us extra towels, more than enough for our entire stay. Because of his gracious hospitality my husband and I are already plotting our next trip, and will definitely look to Pat for a rental.
What people need to understand is this isn't a hotel stay. You won't be pampered and catered for with your every need met from the comfort of your bed, however we felt we were by the awesome Mr. Griffin! You will live in an APARTMENT. You have to be an adult and actually take care of yourself. You know, actually do your own laundry, cook, clean up after yourself and understand that things happen. This is the ultimate Living In Dublin Experience. This is what you have to do to live in Dublin and enjoy more than just a posh stay at a hotel with a poor maid catering to you.
10 stars Pat! Thank you!!
