About Adam, Alexandra, Johnny or Andres

Johnny Drake has built the short-let serviced apartment company City Break Apartments from the year 2004. The company has been assisting and welcoming the corporate and leisure travellers in Dublin for over a decade, and continuously aims to give the Irish experience with a modern touch.

Why Adam, Alexandra, Johnny or Andres chose North Dock

Located in Mayor Street in the IFSC district, this apartment allows the guest to be within walking distance to all the main tourist attractions in the city. Trinity College, Grafton Street, and Temple bar are all within a 25 minutes walk away. O'Connell Street and the Spire are also only 25 minute walk or short 5 min luas ride away, and this landmark is where all of the cities bus lines run through for the more adventurous traveller that wants to leave the city centre. Nearby shops and grocery stores allows for convenience and ease for our guests.

What makes this apartment unique

Prime location in Dublin City Centre, close to public transit routes, secure buildings for ease of mind, and helpful staff located in our main office to assist in any guest needs from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Excellent value. The apartment has one ensuite bedroom which is very good in size, another slightly smaller double bedroom, and a great living room. The apartment is very new and well looked after. When we checked in everything was ready to use and a very well equipped kitchen allowed us to stayed in for a few meals as well. Its proximity to the Luas made it very convenient to travel around, and the mayor square is sufficient for all basic daily needs(supermarket, M&S;), and on wednesday we even get to sample food from the food market just a stone throw from the apartment. The concierge at the complex was also very helpful.

I don't think I could have found a better service apartment for this occasion, and can't emphasise how much my family loved it, even our 8mth old baby liked it. Thanks Ben for the wonderful recommendation and you're a star for providing the baby cot.

Another great thing about the apartment is its sound insulation. It is very quiet in the apartment despite our neighbors partying across from us or next to us. This is not one of those flats where the walls are too thin to hear what you don't want to hear and can't hear what you want to hear. You simply don't hear very much, it's really great!

The view we get with the flat was great as well. Will recommend this apartment to anyone familiar with Dublin and wants to stay in a nice, quiet and comfortable apartment that's very close to the city centre.

spacious close from city centre

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in these apartments during the all Ireland finals with the family.

We had booked for 4 x persons but had a last minute guest, the person we spoke to in the office arranged an extra bed free of charge on the spot and the bed was delivered within the next couple of hours.

The apartments are spacious, the one we stayed in had a nice large balcony (perfect for us smokers).

The location is really nice we first thought that we would be way out of town but ended finding out the we where located 15 minutes walk to O'Connell street and 20 from Temple Bar perfect to celebrate our teams victory !

Great apartment! Friendly staff!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Spencer Dock apartments for 7 nights recently and it was absolutely amazing! From the smooth check-in process, (where they were kind enough to let us check in early) to the sensational service from all staff. We can't fault one thing.

We have also used the aiport pick service which is a good value and made the check in very easy.

The rooms are very spacious and beautiful and the kitchen had all the utensils needed to use. There is also a big balcony which gives the apartment a big plus (especially for smokers, as the apartments are strictly non-smoking).

The location is good for sighseeing, being located within 15 minutes walk to city centre and there is also a tram line within 2 minutes walk. The area is also very quiet and away from the noisy city centre.

Overall, we could not ask for more for our city break in Dublin.

Would recommend this company and we will use it again when we will come back to Dublin!

Very happy with apartment stay and would recommend

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in a two bedroom apartment with my family and was very happy with overall experience.

Firstly the apartment in very clean, we have young child so this was most important.

The kitchen was well equipped and owner obviously listen to the other review which was great for us.

Beds are comfortable and quiet.

Tram line is 200 meters which is great to get into city otherwise it's 15 minute walk.

Very good and recommend airport pick-up service, made for easy check-in.

Nice apartment, but watch the details

  • 4 of 5

This is a nice clean apartment, conveniently located. Users should be made aware of the following:

1. The office where keys are picked up is not close to the apartment. No one was available at the apartment.

2. There is an extra charge for parking: 50 euros a week. This was not mentioned in the quote even though I specifically said parking was required.

3. We had to ask the manager to visit the apartment to show us how to use the kitchen facilities and the TV. No manuals or instructions were in the apartment.

4. Expect very little in the kitchen: No condiments--"salt and pepper shakers" listed on the inventory were paper samples from a fast food place. There were no paper towels or hot pot holders. The coffee pot is a small French press.

5. While there is plenty of light from large windows on either end of the apartment, the only "view" is of other apartment windows sharing a view of each other.

6. The concierge for the buildings is not involved with specific apartment concerns, but is a valuable resource for information about the area.

Real happy with apartment.Great location

  • 4 of 5

Stayed in Spencer for week in August with my family of 4.

Booked with John and found him very help-full regarding how everything works in apartment and also tips on decent restaurants and area's of interest.

The apartment is modern building,clean and roomy for 4.Wireless works well which is a must for me.Location is 1 block from River Liffey and about 15/20 minute walk to city centre.There is tram right beside apartments which is great to great around city.

Would stay in apartment again and would recommend to someone looking for secure,quiet with-in easy reach on center.

Nice flat

  • 2 of 5

We spent 1 week with 4 persons. The flat was big enough for 4 adults. Unfortunately, the flat hasn't been cleaned before we arrived, we had only 2 towels for 4 persons and the kitchen was poorly equipped (no cookware, no salat bowl, no tabs for the dishwasher, etc.). The bathroom had no window and the temperature inside was really high! We couldn't put it down.

The various concierges were all very nice and very helpful. The agency that we've contacted a few times was aiming to help us but it took quite long to have everything fixed.

The only TV working was in the living room. The other one in the sleeping rooms had no connection.

Beside the facts that people used to talk very late at night in the inner courtyard and neighbours had parties till early in the morning, it was a nice place to stay, very close to the center - about 30 minutes of walk.

For a weekend or a very short vacation, I would recommend it. But not for a longer time.

Owner's Response: Hi Nicolas, Thank you for your feedback and I apologize for any incovience caused. I believe because of your early check-in the cleaning staff rushed the servicing of the apartment. I hope you will consider using us again. Ben
