There is also a view over the Tolka River, which used to be a crowded and important river when the distillery was still in operation.

Insgesamt empfehlenswert, aber strenge Lärmregelungen

  • 4 of 5

Schöne große Ferienwohnung ungefähr 2 km vom Zentrum in Dublin entfernt. Wir waren dort mit acht Erwachsenen Personen untergebracht wobei lediglich vier Personen in zwei Doppelbetten schlafen konnten. Die übrigen vier Personen haben auf Schlafsofas im Wohnzimmer genächtigt, das war nicht so bequem. Toller Balkon mit einem sehr guten Gasgrill der unser Reisebudget geschont hat. Gute Einkaufsmöglichkeiten (Aldi, Lidl) in 2km Entfernung. Insgesamt gute Ausstattung der Wohnung, die aber mit strengen Lärmregelungen versehen ist. Wenn man sich normal verhält, gibt es aber keine Probleme. Sehr netter Vermieter und insgesamt empfehlenswert, wilde Partys sollte man aber in den guten Pubs und in der Disco Coppers feiern. Danke an Matt und Tanja für die gute Betreuung.

Amazing place to stay in Dublin

  • 5 of 5

WThis place was a really great place to start our trip in Dublin. The other reviews summarize it pretty well. For improvments, I'd remove the part in the description about no stress on check-in/check-out (or reword it). I assumed it meant you could check-in anytime, but then I realized that wasn't possible, but the the check-in did go very smoothly. We haven't done a Home Away in Europe before, and this is just a general observation since I've seen it at other Home Aways we are staying at, but I'd try to add the deposit to the payment portion. Having to get cash out then wait for the deposit return is kinda strange. It's smoother if it's all just part of the HA process. Also, more towels would be great if there are more people staying. Other than that, this was a great place to stay to take-in Dublin, and the proximity to food and groceries was awesome. Thanks.

Lovely spacious penthouse

  • 4 of 5

Myself and 8 friends stayed here for 2 nights . The penthouse was very clean, bright, spacious and well equipped. The walk to the centre was approx 20 mins at a slow pace.

The only thing I will say is that I'm not sure that the sofa beds in the lounge were big enough for 2 people apart from one. One of the group slept on the floor on the main bedroom using a mattress topper which was provided for the sofa beds.

All in all was a great place to stay would definitely recommend it!

Wonderful host. Great apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Clean apartment with lovely deck and views. We had a car and used the beautiful apartment as home base as we visited sites near and around Dublin. We used taxis for in town visits as we were traveling with elderly parents, but public transport was not far away and we could have easily used both the train and bus, it just involved a little walk. There is a convenience store nearby and nice restaurants a little further away, but walkable. Matt is a gracious host. Wonderful visit, thank you Matt.

Great Base Camp for Multi-Generational Family Trip

  • 5 of 5

The layout of this spacious flat got our family tour of Ireland off to a great start. With 9 people ranging in age from 13 to 82, we needed a place to be together without being on top of each other.

Matthew was very attentive to our pre-planning needs and everything was ready for our arrival. He went out of his way to accommodate our early arrival from US, which we greatly appreciated.

We loved the views and the penthouse privacy.

My only regret is that we didn't think to ask upon arrival for extra linens as the supply provided was a bit limited.

Would stay here again and would recommend highly. And one other minor suggestion is to add a café press to the kitchen supply for the few remaining non Keurig fans in the world. Really minor, we loved this place and very much appreciated Matthew's attentiveness!
