Great apartment in an awesome location

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time staying here in Dublin. The location can't be beat. Just steps from major shopping streets, bars and restaurants. The apartment is great too. Full kitchen, comfortable bed, etc. Agent was very accomodating since we had an early check in and a late checkout. Thanks again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very nice comments. We have plans for a further upgrade of the apartment in January 2017 so future customers should expect greater luxury and comfort from early in the new year. Of course the brilliant location will remain the same. However the arrival of the new tram line (called LUAS) to Marlborough Street in September 2017 will make the location even better. It will open up the entire south city all of the way to Dundrum and even further. Super for expanding your perspective of South Dublin and expanding the range shopping possibilities. Dundrum Shopping Centre is not to be missed and Grafton Street will be just two stops from our apartment - 4 minutes. The beautiful restaurants and pubs of the Ranelagh will also become easily accessable to our visitors. So a great year ahead for 2017.

Very nice apartment

  • 5 of 5

La nostra vacanza è stata perfetta: la posizione dell'appartamento era centralissima vicino a tutte le principali attrazioni e a Temple Bar, la casa pulitissima e dotata di tutti i confort, il proprietario ci ha fornito tutte le informazioni di cui avevamo bisogno.

Consigliatissima per un soggiorno a Dublino.

Wonderful Stay - Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We'd just look to say that we throughly recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to stay in Dublin.

The apartment is clean and spacious, we had three of us, two in the bedroom and one on the sofa bed. The bed was comfortable, the kitchen was large and had everything that we needed.

The location was perfect, smack in town centre, and with all the locks and keys we certainly felt safe.

One other point to add is the personal service, we had two apartments between our party of 6, and William met us, walked us to both apartments and was very helpful. We'd recommend this apartment to anyone.

Owner's Response: Daniel, your group looked after our two apartments really well and I am so glad you had such a nice time. Willie is delighted with your positive comments. Please come back to us again soon. Liam

A warm welcome and a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a great 5-day stay in Dublin and part of that is due to the fact that we had a clean, well equiped, quiet while located downtown, apartment. It is very safe (3 security points) and close to supermarkets, banks, restaurants.

Liam profides all the information in a timely fashion and was extremely welcoming on the day of arrival.

We strongly recommend it. Marie-Chantal

Great hospitality and nice apartment

  • 5 of 5

Although we (I and my family) have spent only a few days in Dublin, we have appreciated so much a comfortable and nice apartment provided by Liam, to whom my thanks are directed for his hospitality. The apartment is very close to the city center, adjacent to one of the main route where there are many shops and pubs. The apartment is located within an internal courtyard in a quite part of the city, 200 meters from the Spire.

Marlborough 1 Bed apartment review

  • 5 of 5

I rented this apartment on behalf of my parents who were visiting Dublin from New Zealand. Right from the start we found Liam to be extremely courteous and helpful and he even offered a discount as my parents are over 65. My parents found the flat to be perfect for their requirements, extremely central to Dublin City and they felt very safe and secure. They also wanted to say thank you to Liam for meeting them prior to their arrival and taking them to the apartment to show them how things worked etc. They would highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a safe and very central apartment to rent in Dublin.

Owner's Response: Thanks Michelle, I am glad they enjoyed the apartment. We like to look after the retirees. The apartment is central and an easy walk to all of the tourist amenities. We hope to see more Kiwi's and your parents back soon. Liam
