Traveling with two small children can be challenging but Liam gave the key to my sister 2 days before our arrival so my sister could leave food for our arrival which was fantastic as we were arriving late christmas eve. The apt was spotlessly clean, comfortable beds,big kitchen with all you need (even coffee) :) Very close to town. Liam popped in to see if we were ok or needed anything which was very nice. I would stay there again for sure.
Very nice apartment

Greeted on arrival at the apartment, Liam was very friendly and helpful. Really liked the time Liam spent showing us the places on a map, including local buses. Apartment clean and spaceous. Location ideal, few minutes walk to bus stop and a short bus journey into Dubin centre. Dublin Zoo walkable too. Great break all in

We stayed at this apartment after my daughter's wedding, my husband and I wanted a short vacation before we headed home to the us. Liam met us (we got lost in Dublin and he kindly waited for us), showed us around and was very helpful.
The apartment was so beautiful, it felt like a fancy hotel, but much more comfortable!
I gave the apartment 4 stars for location, it is not within walking distance of things to do, but the bus line stopped just outside the apartment which made it very easy to get where we wanted to go.
If we ever go to Dublin again, I will certainly rent this lovely place again!!

I can't gush more about the apartment, Liam, and Fiona. This apartment was great; clean, great location, wonderful city. Liam was there when we arived for our stay and was very gracious and explained everything in the apartment and how to use it. It was clean well decorated and very quite. We stayed for two weeks and felt like we were at home. Because there was a combination washer and dryer in the unit we over packed. The bus stop is just outside the unit and we used it almost every day. The 49a bus takes you directly into town. We also walked to Pheonix Park and Houston station where we were able to catch the Luis tram or the train to Limrerick and Cork to see the Blarney Castle. If you decide to catch the Dart to Belfast from Connley station call a cab to get there and book your tickets online 72 hours ahead of time and you get a very discounted rate. We did most of our food shooping down the street at the Tesco and found it very resonably priced. We found while at the apartment that there was a ton of tourist brochures in the small table and have to say left some more ther because we were over wieght at the airport. We will deffinatly stay again being from the USa we only get over to Dublin once a year and pland to book our next trip around the same time next year. Thanks Liam and Fiona we had a great time.
A Lovely Time!...

We stayed at this apartment and had a great time for the three days we were there.
It's a totally modern apartment with everything in it that you need. We found it to be really clean and extremely comfortable. There was no noise and even though it's situated off a busy road we couldn't hear a thing.
We had no trouble getting into Dublin city as there is a bus route just a couple of minutes walk away that brought us right into Dublin city and dropped us at Trinity College. From there we could access Temple bar,Grafton street, O'Connell Street and of course Trinity College.
It is also close to the Luas which brought us down to the docklands area.
There is also a major supermarket within a 2 minute walk.
We loved it and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone. Liam (the owner) was great and couldn't have been more helpful. We hope to return and will use this apartment again.

Had a wonderful weekend in this apartment and would recommend it without a doubt. Just redecorated, so everything is brand new and spotlessly clean. Very cosy and warm and quiet. The locations was ideal for visiting all the sights and had a lovely day in the Phoenix Park where we hired bycycles. Bus stop just outside the door. Our hosts Liam and Fiona, could not have been more helpful and accommodating. Thank you for everything. Will certainly recommend this apartment to friends and family.
