About Andrew

I am a lover of travel, sport and people.I love helping people find the best parts of my great city. I grew up in Dublin and even though I enjoy travel, I also enjoy returning to my home,Dublin.

Why Andrew chose Dublin

This is a great location, surrounded by Georgian splendor and in the heart of the embassy district. It is a very quiet street, but is still in walking distance of all of the best sights.

Perfect location, nice size.

  • 4 of 5

If you can walk upstairs this apartment is a very good choice to see Dublin. It is Within walking distance to a lot of interesting spots. The Luas train and buses are close by. The concert hall is close by. There are very good restaurants and coffee houses near by. You can walk to many of the museums and attractions.

The apartment is large for Dublin. A family or group of six will fit comfortably.

There is plenty of dresser and closet space. The kitchen is small and there is not much counter space but I was able to have a dinner party for 6 guests.

The apartment had a few maintenance issues while I was there but nothing that was not workable.

I would stay there again with friends or family.

You get what you pay for

  • 2 of 5

I don't like writing negative reviews, but I like to be fair and honest in them as I rely so much on reviews when I book a place to stay. This apartment is definitely well priced, but you do get what you pay for. For the price of 1 hotel room, you get a 2-bedroom apartment that's only a 10 minute walk (or less) to St. Stephen's Green and 15 minutes from the heart of Dublin.

However, you get what you pay for.

- The mattresses are awful. You sit on them and they fall down so you feel like you're sleeping right on the springs. They are hard and lumpy. None of us slept well at all.

- The whole place is not very clean. We had to vacuum up leaves and dirt off the floor when we arrived and wash all the silverware and dishes as they had crusted food on them. The bedskirts and chair cushions and rugs all need a good cleaning.

- The apartment is up 4 flights of stairs. It's not bad, just want to make sure future renters know what to expect.

- The front bedroom has a thin window and is right on the street so the people sleeping in it heard traffic and a dog barking all night. The back bedroom was very quiet.

If you don't mind a little dirt and are not picky about your mattress, then this apartment is a good deal. If you want a great night's sleep or expect cleanliness, I'd look elsewhere.

Owner's Response: Thankyou for your review.All of your points will be actioned imediatley. As can be seen from my many reviews, this is not normal for my apartment. We cange the mattress regularily, although it is difficult to get one to suit all guests. The apartment is fully cleaned after each guest and I will review the quality of the clean with my cleaner. The apartment is the penthouse, so it is up 4 easy flights of stairs.This is as per all descriptions on the web site, The street is a very quiet city centre street, but the house is a listed historic building, so we cannot change the windows and street noise can sometimes be heard. This apartment offers you accomodation for up to 6 people in the best part of Dublin city,with a kitchen, large living room, full bathroom, local guides, 24hr owner contact, all for the price of a hotel room in the same area. I am very sorry for any inconvenience caused, but maybe if you had contacted me during your stay instead of anonymously after your stay, I could have resolved some of the issues raised.

Good location, great host, needs touch up

  • 3 of 5

Andrew is organized, responsive and a great host. The location of the apt is quite good: almost within eyesight of the Luas stop. The price is fair and Andrew is flexible: we organized to check in 2 days early, and modify payments, and he was accommodating and great all through. The unit itself has mattresses more common to college than comfort standards, although I may be the only one to say this. Carpets have not been cleaned for some time and even the bath walls could simply use a wash or paint. That said, when we reported this by email Andrew let us out of our contract instantly, so we moved on -- good for us, good for him. In other words, his care is great. If you want hotel quality mattresses and fixtures these would be elsewhere. So know the positives: lots of space, solid location and easy entrance and exit: privacy, convenience, proximity to downtown. Flexible management. The other details are up to the customer, as always.

Owner's Response: Ken, Thankyou for your review, I really appreciate both the positive and the negative comments. As you mentioned by email, the mattress would not suit someone who has an old car accident injury, so I was happy for you to check out early (at my cost). I must have a lot of guests that enjoy "college" mattress standards, as you are the first to comment!! The carpets have a few minor marks on them, but I can assure you they are thoroughly clean, as is everything in the apartment. Andrew

Nice Apt, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Great value for the money on a beautiful residential street, at the southern end of the City Centre. Walking to everything in the City Centre was easy. Could have used a TV for morning and late night viewing, but we learned to live without it. Infirm people should know that there are a lot of stairs to climb, but our party had no problem. We went on 3 excursions outside of Dublin and they were all great: took a bus to Trim to see its castle and walk along the Boyne River. Took a 6 pub Rural Tour that covered 100 miles over 9 hours. Took a train to Howth and walked part of the Cliff Path.

It was great to have Andrew's apartment to come home to, and we cooked several meals there. All in all, it was a perfect vacation.
