“Stunning House”
Reviewed May 8, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We rented this house for us and our wedding party when we got married this May. What an absolutely amazing house! The design is exceptional with so much open space and light throughout.

Simon and his team were excellent throughout the whole process with great communication from start to finish.

We would absolutely recommend this house to anyone and wish it was ours! If we could give it 6 stars we could.

“Fabulous home beyond our Expectations with wonderful caretakers ready to help us if needed.”
Reviewed May 4, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We are a group of 8 friends that shared the property for 11 days. It is beautiful and is exactly as described. All of us were impressed from the moment we entered the home. My husband & I chose the master bedroom & it was comfortable & quiet. There is a spacious kitchen & big, bright dining room with access to patio. Each of us had freedom to do as we pleased & not get in anyone's way. There is a bathroom on each floor & there wasn't any problem in sharing even though there were 8 of us. I loved the large bath tub. Most of the group loved the downstairs shower & towel warmer. The 25-35 yr olds loved the red couch in the den for movies. There's also a quiet sitting room to read or play games. I highly recommend this rental unit & the owner as the very best. Glasnevin is close to the Gardens & Cemetary & has easy bus access. We used taxis but did try the bus once. It's about the same cost per person for taxi or bus. Bring enough clothes as laundry loads are small & take time to dry. It's not like the states with our big washing machines. We had a great time & hope to return.

Hi Debra,
What a lovely review, thank you.
Glasnevin is a great spot and I'm glad that all your guests had plenty of space and enjoyed themselves.
As you say we have not moved to the big washing machines like in the States, but it won't be long with our big Irish families.

Look forward to seeing you all again to stay with Near City Rentals.

“Amazing house and excellent base for Dublin visit”
Reviewed January 20, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We stayed at this amazing property over the Christmas holidays and it made our trip really special. The house is large and beautifully decorated with many beautiful touches. It's located in a quiet neighborhood, yet very accessible to the center of Dublin. Geraldine was waiting for us with a warm Irish welcome of freshly baked scones, tea and coffee etc when we arrived off our transatlantic flight and we immediately felt completely at home. The landscaping is also delightful and our family was completely rejuvenated after our lovely stay here. Simon was a joy to deal with and emailed regularly to make sure we had everything we needed (which we certainly did!). Thoroughly recommended and hope to stay here again!

“Great place to spend time with friends”
Reviewed September 29, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The place is located in a quiet residential area.
There are few shops close to it (10min walk) including Spar, Subway, pubs and liquor shop.
There is a Bus stop at 5 minutes walk and the road is well deserved by taxi's.
The terrace is really pleasant, we really enjoy it during breakfasts. The room located next to the kitchen is awesome and offer a good place to stay during night without dusturbing the bedrooms located at the opposite.
The living romm is also nice with TV and netflix. Kitchen is well provided with two fridges, hoven and all we need to make good dishes.
The owner, Simon, is really friendly and full of good advices. We had fruit juice and hand made bread on our arrival. He is always available in any case.

“Beautiful house, excellent location!”
Reviewed September 3, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Beautiful house and garden! House was large enough for a party of 6 with room for more with all the essentials for a home away from home! Conveniently located to the public bus for easy access to the city center and within a short walk to some very nice restaurants, pubs, small grocery store and some city landmarks. Including The National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin Cemetery and Grifith Park. Simon was very welcoming and accommodating to a few of our needs during our stay! Couldn't ask for a lovelier place! Would definitely come back!
