As you, I read the reviews before I booked this location. Just as many of the others have said, this is a great place. The space itself is perfect for a small family or a couple of friends. My partner and I, and our 10 year old daughter, stayed for a week and loved it! The full kitchen is very useful to avoid racking up too many bills dining out. Plus, there is a Tesco Express right next door, as well as a bakery and off license within the same block. The electric fire place is a nice touch to ward off the chill. There is a balcony, which is accessible off of both bedrooms. Skylights are in nearly every room, which really brighten up the space, though it doesn't need it with the white walls and wood flooring. This is a quiet area, but a 5 minute walk will get you to some great pubs and restaurants. The info book is handy for persons not familiar with the area. The only thing that I would add is the info book could use an additional page on how to operate the stove and clothes washer and my partner and I never really figured it out. :) Overall, this is a truly wonderful space and I highly recommend it.

Liked best: Nearly everything. Host provides "welcome basket" of eggs, bread, biscuits, milk, and tea. Excellent location. Gorgeous space. Free wi-fi. Host is awesome to work with. Comfortable beds. Clean, modern apt. Adapters were helpful. :)
Liked least: Fuse kept tripping in the mornings. Shelf broken in large bedroom and in separate bathroom. No directions on how to use stove or clothes washer.

Hi Victoria,
Many thanks for your lovely words.
You were a real pleasure to host- we will work to include details on the cooker and washer in the book!
All the best,
Elaine!

“Amazing apartment”

Got to echo my brothers review. This apartment was amazing. Such a great place to stay. Very clean, comfortable and modern with everything you need for a self catering. Tesco just next door was very handy. Would defo stay again.
It is about a 40 min ish trek to Temple Bar but plenty of bars on route to break up the journey. We did 20 min walk and stopped at the Bloody Horse then about 5-10 min on to The Swan (great pint of Guinness) then another 5-10 min to Temple Bar. Great time

Visited Dublin for a couple of days and seeing that there were 4 of us we decided to book an apartment. Thankfully I dropped on this little gem just outside the city centre. On arriving at the very pleasant and well presented apartment we were treated to a welcome pack consisting of bread, eggs, milk etc. to get us started. This was an unexpected but very nice touch. The apartment had everything that we needed and Elaine could not have been more helpful so from the 4 of us, we thank you so much.

Just have to advise other visitors that it is a 40 minute, albeit pleasant, walk into the city centre so bear this in mind when choosing your footwear!!

A great stay in a great city.

Thank you Elaine.

“Rathmines 1 was perfect for us being 2 couples.”
Reviewed May 2, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The apartment was perfectly located and Pat and his daughter were so helpful. The bus was just outside and made access to the city easy. Just outside the apartment were shops, restaurants, pubs and every one was so helpful. The man in the deli where we went to buy some food for a light dinner disappeared and returned with olives that we had requested but he was out of stock.....perhaps the pizza shop is missing some. The care package on arrival was very welcome as well. Would come back to Rathmines 1 in a heartbeat.

“This apartment could not have been more perfect.”
Reviewed December 19, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed for a week in this apartment. The manager Elaine was helpful and accommodating,
as was the owner, Patrick. They both work at the pharmacy immediately below the apartment and are available for anything. The apartment is very cute, clean and well decorated. The beds are comfortable. It is a great location. The bus stops almost directly in front of the apartment. There are markets on the street, as well as Mother Reilly's Pub, where we had many of our really good meals. I doesn't get any better than this!
