“I think I maybe too picky”
Reviewed 2 July 2018 for a stay in June 2018

First the positives and there are many.
John the owner met us as the flat and walked us through all the features of the what was there and available. I truly appreciate his time to meet us and explain how everything works. There were only two of us staying there and it served as our base location while we traveled to other venues.
The Beds, the Wi-Fi, and and the coffee pot worked fine. It has a normal size American size refrigerator.
*
The reasons why I rated it as a 3: The kitchen was not dirty but someone made something that had grease all around the stove. In short the kitchen needs to be cleaned. There was grease films on all the items on the counter. We never opened the oven but the microwave was greasy as well. In all fairness to John we did not have any plans to cook.
*
I was surprised by the "tenement housing buildings" within around the block Google Earth it will help provide better clarity as you walk to venues close by. I don't mind people asking for money and no one was rude when we refused.
*
Finally the stairs, The flat is on three levels and there is one step you can take without making enough noise to disturb anyone sleeping. First day it seemed charming but it really got on nerves.

Thank you for your feedback. My house keeper advises me that she used an 'All Surface Cleaner' in the kitchen area. This has an oily consistancy that probably caused the 'greasy' feel to the surfaces in the kitchen. This product will not be used in the future.
The buildings in the area are a variety of styles and periods. Georgian, Victorian, and modern. Some of the flat complexes built in the 60's are unattractive I agree. But this is the case in most cities. Many of the more recent buildings are due to be replaced in the near future. Anyway, thank you again for your feedback and hopefully you will make it back this way again.

“Geweldige locatie om Dublin te ontdekken.”
Reviewed 6 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Perfect location to stay for your visit to Dublin. We stayed there with 2 daughters and the boyfriends. We spot Dublin by daylicht and the girls/boys are looking for the best pub in the City. About 10 min by feet to O'Connolystreet. It is also easy to take the bus or train to discover south-dublin. We will say thxs John (owner) and when we come back to Dublin, we shall phone you for another stay. Old house, when you suspect luxery, then you must look further. House has everthing that a comfort stay requires.

Dublin is a fun city and the property was 10- 15 mins from everything.
We would recommend both the property and the host John. Both warm and welcoming.

“All the comforts of home and way more space than even the best hotel”
Reviewed 21 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

A vacation in Dublin in January may not be everybody's cup of tea but it was the time we had to travel as a family of three. Having a well equipped and convenient house to ourselves made everyone's stay easier, particularly as we were fighting colds and could have separate bedrooms. The space was wonderful, beds comfortable each with a duvet, and the big bathroom with a good shower worked well. We were too afraid to use the tub (it is even bigger in person than it looks in the photo). We looked out at the garden with grill which would have been a wonderful retreat at another time of the year. The kitchen is fully equipped and we used it mostly for breakfast. The house was a good home base for seeing Dublin and just a 5-10 minute walk from many attractions and the bus routes including the Hop On one. And each morning and coming home each day from touring, there was a nice big living room with TV. Wi-fi too worked flawlessly throughout the house. This was the first time we have booked a house when traveling, but it now will not be the last time.
