The East Ireland region
The East is one of the most varied regions on the island of Ireland, stretching from cosmopolitan cities to mesmerizing rural scenery.
NATIONAL MUSEUM OF IRELAND - Archaeology and History, Kildare Street, Dublin 2, Ireland.
Built in the 1880s, this holds exhibitions such as the Viking Exhibition, the War of Independence Exhibition, many priceless items are on display, and is well worth a visit.
SAN PATRICK CATHEDRAL - Built in 1220 is the most popular tourist attraction in Ireland
DUBLIN CASTLE - See the Old Walls of Dublin, State Apartments, and the treasury.
GUINNESS STOREHOUSE - to many dubliners it is the soul of Ireland: who around the world does not know the Guinness beer? Do not miss a visit to the place where the party begins and do not forget to take the lift up to the gravity bar, Ireland's highest bar.
KILMAINHAM JAIL - built in 1792 it is Ireland most famous/infamous prison. This huge complex held through the years many Nationalists and Republicans. The building, closed down in 1924, gives an inspiring insight of Irish history. The movie "In the name of the father", with Daniel Day Lewis, was set there.

Like many capital cities, Dublin has most of the world's top shops and brand names. Also Dublin as a city is so compact, all of these shops are a short walk from each other. If from the apartment you turn the corner in Liffey Street, after 3 minutes walking you'll reach the vibrant Jervis Streets with its selection of high street brands and Shopping Centers: Zara, HMV, Debenhams, Arnotts, Jervis Shopping Center and Ilac Shopping Center among many.
The apartment overlooks the HALF PENNY BRIDGE, a beautiful old Georgian pedestrian bridge dating to the 18th century. It arches over the River Liffey which divides the city into its northern and southern halves. The Ha' Penny Bridge gets its name from the original toll for crossing it, which was a half penny in the old English currency; the toll has since been abolished.

"Comfortable and Convenient"
I was greeted by the friendly and charming Claudia who showed me around the flat and explained the water-heating system. Best to turn it on when you wake up and allow 15 minutes before you shower. The flat is close to shops and transport links. The Luas 'trams' are less than 5 minutes away to the North of the flat. There is a large shopping centre near the 'Jervis' Luas stop. In the other direction, just across the river, is the lively 'Temple Bar' area. Trinity College is about 10 minutes walk away. There is a lot of noisy traffic (and a few loud merry-makers) around but it was very easy to sleep in this comfortable flat. I recommend the tour to Newgrange. An amazing ancient monument.

We are sorry to hear that you are not happy about our apartment, but we are also sorry for the fact that you did not contact us to communicate your problems: we could have bought a specific kitchen utensil/coffee machine for you or have the shower fixed even the same day. This could have avoided your moments of desperation and improved the quality of your stay. We are constantly at our guests disposition but because you were the first (and last) to complain about this, it hasn't been possible to take action.
Most city center pads have the same kitchen size and there are hundreds of apartments in the same block with these kitchens where people live all the year round, and they are just fine. Furthermore the size of the kitchen is perfectly visible in our ad's pictures then, if it is the kitchen that concerns you most in a holiday rental, you should not have rented our apartment.
Regarding the noise: this is a city center apartment in the hearth of Dublin, therefore there could be street noise (however there are no pubs and clubs near by), but due to the fact that it is an upper floor apartment the noise is attenuated. In change the apartment has a spectacular view over Dublin's skyline, the river and the Half Penny bridge and this is what attracts our clients most. Shortly we are going to advertise a third apartment in the same block that looks into a quiet back lane, and therefore with no street noise and no river view: it is a question of preferences.

"Great location, facilities and service."
This location is perfect - central, you can walk everywhere quickly. The only drawback is there is a bit of traffic noise - but we didn't mind as it is worth it for location. The facilities are good inside the flat. The service from the owners was clear, prompt, flexible and polite. The price was very reasonable. Would stay again and would recommend.
