About Liam Travers

I come from a family background in the hospitality industry. Having lived in New York for a number of years, I returned in 1990 and purchased this property in Dublin City. I have recently returned to the hospitality industry and ensuring my guests have a comfortable and enjoyable stay in my apartment is a priority for me. I'm available 24/7 for my guests and aim to provide every comfort during their stay.

Liam Travers purchased this apartment in 1990

Why Liam Travers chose Dublin

I chose this location for the proximity to the city centre and of course the beautiful Victorian Redbrick lined North Circular Road.These properties are a feature of Dublin and are preserved by Dublin Council. The fact that the Phoenix Park and the Botanic gardens are within walking distances is an absolute plus, providing plenty of recreational activity. Numerous pubs, restaurants are within walking distance and I feel that the house provides a sense of character and charm not matched by modern buildings and houses.

What makes this apartment unique

There are a number of benefits to staying in this property. Located close to the heart of the city of Dublin there is an excellant transport system by bus and light rail that means all of the sights can be visited with the minimum of fuss. The building itself is a beautiful Victorian property that has unique charm while offering all the modern comforts that a guest could expect.

The location is ideal as it is quiet while being convenient to all shopping, sights, transport, museums etc. that makes a holiday. Located beside the Phoenix park which is Europe's largest urban park the traveller can have a taste of the country while still remaining in the city.

There truly is something for everyone.

Enjoyed our home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the beautiful James Joyce apt. The apt. was clean and comfortable. The dryer didn't work in the apt. which was an inconvenience, there was another dryer in the back of the house I could have used. The only bathroom is accessed through the bedroom. This was not a problem for my husband and myself but it made me wonder how you would fit 6 people in this apt. A grocery store is within walking distance. The bus to Dublin Centre is at the end of the street and is about a 10 minute ride. We arranged to be picked up and dropped off at the airport through Liam. Our driver, Gary was very nice. Liam answered all emails and texts quickly. Liam was pleasant and professional. He also arranged other taxis for us, which was wonderful. I highly recommend the tour to Wicklow and the train to Belfast. Woudl rent again.

Perfect apartment for Dublin city-trip

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to explore Ireland with our 4 children (so we are 6 persons) and begin in the capital. For this the apartment is perfect. Liam has organized the transport from the airport for us and made us feel welcome. We also received from him a map and useful information for excursions, bus etc. The apartment was comfortable and nicely decorated and very clean. The only tiny little thing we could fault would be that the water tank is very loud. If someone has to go to the toilet at night, necessarily all be monitored. But that would not stop us, to rent or to recommend this apartment again.

Happy swimmers from Canada

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent trip! In Ireland for the first time and came across this apartment. We rented 5 apartments and that is where the wonderful help and guidance came from the ownership team. The apartments were awesome. The owners were even more awesome! They helped us find local transportation for our 10 days, always available via email for questions and all started with a guided drive from airport to apartment. We recommend any apartment in their complex!! Thank you for making our trip affordable, well organized and extremely memorable for our swimmers and coaches!!!

visctorian apartment

appartement confortable, très propre, très fonctionnel.

un peu loin du centre ville mais pour ceux qui aiment la marche à pied, c'est tout à fait faisable.

Sinon, il y a les bus à la sortie de l'immeuble.

tout ce qu'il faut pour faire les courses à proximité.

Ville agréable, beaucoup de magasins, de pubs....

Visite de Trinity collège et maison de la Guinness à faire!

Heuston Station
Car: not necessary

A great place to stay with easy access to the city centre in just 10 minutes by bus.

There is a regular bus service that runs right by the front door and there is the light rail system which is a great way to see Dublin in its entirety.

There is a major supermarket just 3 minutes walk away as well as a pharmacy, bakery, butchers, medical centre and a laundromat for guests that need this facility.

There are cafes, pubs and restaurants all within easy walking distance (max 10 minutes) and one pub in particular plays traditional Irish music nightly and has to be visited during your stay. It's an old Irish pub and people gather nightly to play here. Not to be missed!

There are also excellent restaurants so if you don't want to cook you could pop into L. Mulligan's Bistro (check out the review it got in the NY Times), Plan B, Cucina, My Thai and various cafes for that all important cup of coffee and chat.

We have eaten in all of these establishments and we couldn't fault any of them so rest assured that you won't be disappointed.

If you plan on eating in the city then it's only a short bus ride or walk to find a wealth of restaurants and places to eat that will take your breath away. The quality and standard of food in Dublin not to mention the variety is second to none so there really is something for everyone.

There are also some takeaways nearby so if you don't want to cook or if you don't want to venture out this is an option also.

Following is a list of the some of the sights you would enjoy in Dublin.

All are within easy reach of our property and while there are many more than listed here we thought we would give you some to start with.

Top 10 sights close to our apartment

1. Phoenix Park - Europe's largest urban park and houses Dublin Zoo is just a 10 minute walk

2. Guinness Storehouse - 20 minutes

3. Trinity College - Houses the famous and beautiful Book of Kells is only 10 minutes by bus

4. The National Botanic Gardens - 15 minute by bus

5. The National Gallery of Ireland - 15 minute by bus

6. Farmleigh House - also in the Phoenix Park which is a 10 minute walk

7.St. Patrick's Cathedral - 15 minutes by bus

8. National Museum of Ireland - 15 minutes by bus

9. Kilmainham Gaol - 15 minutes by bus

10. Jameson Distillery - 10 minutes walk

These are only some of the wonderful sights that are on our doorstep.

Each apartment has information on the fantastic things to do and see while in Dublin and of course we are happy to recommend other things to see and do while you are here.

Excellant tourist offices are also dotted throughout the city which can provide information on day trips, tours and other excursions that might be of interest.

Finally we want to assure you that we take great pride in our house and our apartments. We are committed to providing a quality stay and I have personally restored the apartments myself over the last 5 years.

Cleanliness and value for money are our priority and we aim to provide each guest with wonderful memories of a holiday in Dublin in a wonderful restored Victorian house.

We look forward to meeting you.
