The main difficulty on arrival is finding a parking space to unload outside the apartments. We'd already reserved a space in the underground car park at 10 euros a day which was right under the apartments and accessed with the apartment keys. The apartment itself was very spacious and light with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. In our opinion, it was pretty up-market, since we usually do everything on a shoe string. As far as we were concerned, this was worth splashing out on! Towels and bedding provided and apartment was very clean. Good but simple kitchen facilities (a bit short on crockery and glasses, which could cause problems...). Fantastic location! Easy access to shops/takeaways/pubs (Tesco, book shop, Penneys...etc). O'Connell Street a stone's throw away. Woken with a start on the last day by the fire alarm in corridoor outside our apartment. Surprised to find the emergency exit locked but fortunately it was a false alarm! We've read some of the other reviews and some people seem to have had some disappointing experiences but we really liked the apartment we had and we'd recommend it (apartment 43).
