Spacious & light, homely, sleeps 2 apartment. Comfortable base 10 minutes bus ride from the centre.
Apartment highlights:

• City apartment for 2 with the quietness of the suburbs
• Furnished and equipped as a home rather than as a holiday let
• Just yards away from the airport coach stop and buses to the centre (a
10 minute ride) Just over I mile from the beach at Sandymount (a nice walk!)
• Shops and restaurants within 5 minutes walk
• NO extra fees added on
• Close to UCD, RDS, Telefís Éireann, Vincent's Hospital
• From €835/week (Euros)

Situated in the Ballsbridge/Donnybrook area of Dublin on leafy Ailesbury Road, 10 minutes bus ride from Stephen's Green, this is our own home away from home so it is equipped as such and is not a bare holiday let. It is set in its own large mature gardens and is a (relatively!) quiet haven in a busy city.

The apartment is at the top end of Ailesbury Road where it meets Anglesea Road.

The main road that runs through the village of Donnybrook (where the shops and restaurants are) is the N11 (south to Wexford) and the coast road runs from the other end of Ailesbury Road, so this is very well positioned for those with a car who want to explore the Dublin mountains or coast, or the many lovely places in County Wicklow on easy day trips. We are half way between the ports at Dun Laoghaire and Dublin ferry port, both being less than 5 miles drive away. The Dart Railway runs from Sydney Parade which is a little bit beyond the bottom of Ailesbury Road (a one mile walk). On this rapid transit system you can visit the many attractive seaside villages along the coast, both north and south.

The apartment, on the third floor (American 4th) has very large light and airy rooms which is quite unusual in a modern block in Dublin (built in the 60's). There are great views, through the large picture windows, over a very verdant part of Dublin and the ever changing cloud formations.

Details of accommodation

• An entrance hall which leads to a large bright sitting room with 32" cable TV and fast wifi broadband access(no extra charge) and there is printer in the bedroom should you forget to print out your boarding card.

There is plenty of comfortable seating and a dining table (seats 6) from where you can look out over Dublin towards the sea (hidden by trees, see photographs) which Is only about a mile away. A door from here leads to the balcony.

• A cloakroom which houses the washing machine, basin and loo.

• The kitchen is fully equipped with microwave and dishwasher, fridge freezer, electric hob and oven, espresso machine, drip filter machine and French press etc. In addition the cupboard is stocked with non-perishables which you are welcome to use (replacing as necessary).

• There is small ensuite bathroom but this is brand new and shiny from November 2017. The shower is still over the bath but the pressure is great!

• The bedroom is large and the mattresses are deemed very comfortable. The bed is made up as 'Austrian Twins' (see below). All linen is provided but if you are staying longer than a week you are asked to take care of your own linen and towel changeovers as this is not a serviced apartment.

The balcony gives you some outdoor space and is a welcome treat on hot summer days (all too rare!) but it faces East so only gets the early morning sun and is therefore no good for sun bathing. The communal garden has large lawned areas in which you are welcome to go and sit.

There is a caretaker on site on weekdays, secure parking (free to visitors) and entrance video phone.

As this is a very quiet block in which a lot of retired people live my apartment is only rented to mature quiet people and is not suitable for 'party people' who like to make noise! I do not let to smokers - sorry.

This is for a MAXIMUM of 2 people for a MINIMUM of 7 nights. The bed could be used by a couple or two close friends as the mattresses and bedding are separate but on the same base.

I only let this apartment a few times a year so your stay can start any day of the week (subject to availability of course) and I can usually be very flexible on arrival and leaving times since I never let 'back to back'. The cost of an average week in 2018 is €860 Euros, more for peak events like Easter and Christmas.

I am happy to answer any questions you might have about the apartment, the area or holidaying in Ireland in general so please feel free to email me and maybe I can help you plan your holiday and if you fancy staying in a cosy country cottage in the Heart of England in the North Cotswolds, close to Chipping Campden and Stratford upon Avon please take a look at my other listing on this site (Sansome House Cottage) or click through to my website.

My husband and I live in England at Sansome House in the North Cotswolds. In the grounds of our house is our rental cottage, Sansome House Cottage. I am Irish and my husband is English. My Dublin apartment used to be my mother's and in order to keep it in the family I rent it for part of the year to holidaymakers. It is very well equipped as we use it as our own holiday home but all personal clutter is tucked away in a cupboard.

Getting around

Just yards from the door is the Aircoach stop which brings you to and from the Airport and also buses into the centre of Dublin, St Stephen's Green being just a 10 minute journey or you can walk in 25/30 minutes. O'Connell Street is 15 minutes on the bus. The Dart Railway is one mile distant and the two ports of Dublin both 5 miles away. There is free parking within the complex if you want to rent a car. Ailesbury Road leads straight down to the sea at Sandymount - a very pleasant leafy walk of just over a mile.
